There is a time and a place for rock and metal music.
In my life, both belong to the past, and only cause misery in the present.

I've been walking 10,000 steps each day recently, for losing weight.
Also, I have been attending evening seminars by my alma mater about mindfulness in graphic design study. Somewhere in the overlapping space between these two habits, I have found that I carry a lot of second-hand angst, mostly created and maintained by strangers. I've also found that my taste in music isn't what I've been listening to while walking or jogging—I just thought it was. In reality, I like classical music.

I think it's strange what people confess to online. And why confess at all? You won. No one got you and put you away. You have escaped whatever punishment you still dread, so what do you want now? Are your inner workings so simple that you expect praise in the absence of punishment?

People load up on isms and then go to their social media systems just in the same way people load up on pornography and then go to confession. With the same outcome, too

If it doesn't, then its time for a 12 hour soak in water for the whole pen, sans cartridge.
The finer-nibbed pens worry me because paper is usually a very coarse affair and I bet this causes a lot of clogging. Need to try out some better paper that I have here.

Completely forgot about my rotring isograph standing on its head. I hope the ink flows well now, though, after 16 hours on its head!

I have to admit, I find the possibilities of analysing what works for which account in terms of social media engagement engrossing. At first glance, there seems to be a lot of synergy between, say posting on Twitter and having a streaming schedule on Twitch, yeah?

In a very serious manner, you can not use the hashtag and expect ANYONE to see it.

This needs more research, I am sure, but to find the posts whch work, despite the hashtag should provide some insight into why practically everyone using the tag might as well not post at all or omit the tag itself.

It drives me nuts, to be honest

Alright, mass deletion is not something mastodon likes. Rate limiting on your own instance is a thing, it seems. Alright Alright Alright.

I'm in love with storage devices, mostly the read-only type of menory. The thing about them is, on the surface level, I can make it my own. Also, there's the design of them, with a clear data side or whatever you want to call it.

I went and got myself new horseshoe, on tumblr. I think I'll have it redirect to a subdomain, because I love that I can do that.

I'm also kicking around the idea of using in some capacity or other.

I'll let that one stew for a bit until I figure that out.

Nostalgia is always happening. It's mostly grotesque.

Signed up on two ancient forums. Ancient and dying, so of course they run phpbb, which means that you have to write the mods when you want your account deleted. Which I did and did do.

How do these things even exist anymore..

I did not not enjoy finding new forums to try out. I like how forums work.

I'm getting back into more serious graphic design things. Going to look for related things on irc and stack. It's missing from my life :(

Essentially, I believe that social media as a whole is carried by a generation of people who think that they should matter to you, because they have decided to be famous.

Where does that leave you?

I propose calling this "trickle-down follower capital" and moving on to something more interesting. Like making friends again.
