Oh hey, it's my one year anniversary of getting on Mastodon. I don't want to get too sappy, but joining this website has genuinely made a significant, positive difference in my life. Meeting wonderful people, being exposed to people from all around the world and from all walks of life. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It's been super fun, love you all.
Hello, I'm Altruest. I like beautiful things, and I think we live in a beautiful world. Friends are Good, as is art, food, dogs, and the moon. I like to be sad (but only sometimes), and I love being excited about things I know nothing about. I believe we can all get along, and I know that injecting a little bit of empathy into your life gets us closer to that goal.
I think you're beautiful, and valid, and welcome. Peace and love. ✌🏾
#introductions Hello new people! 👋🏾
I'm Altruest, a current student getting my PhD in Neuroscience. On Mastodon I have a wide variety of interests, and you can find me talking about books, music, science, podcasts, videogames, or just trying to bring the world some positivity! Mastodon has honestly changed the way I think about social media, I hope you get everything out of it that I have!

Made some persimmon cookies and they are really good! They are fluffy and soft, but not as moist as I would like. What can I tweak to make them moister? More butter?
Does anyone know how to make friends? I know this is literally the most pathetic question ever, but I'm so sad and lonely and I don't want to date anyone. All the apps to meet anyone are about hooking up or romance. I don't have a car and I'm poor; i don't know how to meet and do stuff with anyone who lives in the surrounding cities. Help💔

It rules that you can get a minimalist laptop that's just for writing but it costs more than a real laptop. It owns so hard. Here are some other fun product ideas:
A refrigerator that only holds eggs. $10,000
One scissor (collect all 2.) $40
Mini staples. Long enough to staple 2 pieces of paper and that's it. $1 apiece
Nintendo S. One screen only. $700
Non-fidget cube: $119
Cat. Similar to the goodpet, but not useful, does nothing. Eighty bajillion dollars.
"I wonder," said the robot, "do you think I am human?"
"You feed me, and stroke me, and you are warm to sit on," said the cat.
"Does that make me human?"
"No. But tell me, do you enjoy my company?"
"I do," said the robot.
"That is all I ask of any human," said the cat.
