Also I've been spending all that time reading about Mastodon instead of deciding on an avatar so sorry about that.

I've been doing some research on how Mastodon and this "Fediverse" thing work. It really is interesting stuff. I've seen some describe it as a little complicated (compared to, like Twitter) and they're not wrong per se, but I also understand that it's not arbitrary difference for the sake of difference; there's goals those complications serve and they're good goals.

You know, I never realized until now how much I really missed every fourth thing on my timeline not being a paid advertisement.

So here I am. This should be okay as it all feels very familiar and easy enough to use I guess. I need to choose an avatar but the one I've had forever on Twitter is far too outdated. I'll think of something eventually.
