I live by four simple rules:
1. Don't be a dick.
2. Don't fuck it all up.
3. Don't forget to be kind.
4. Don't delay having fun.
For me, they kind of cover every imaginable situation. And yes, I broke all of them in the past, too. I just try really hard to not let it happen again.
Let's be excellent to eachother, people ❤️

Goodreads is not good anymore.
I want to keep track of my reading, and I want recommendations and maybe get into discussions over books I've read. Do you have any #recommendations for me?
At the moment I'm trying to use my M.b account @carlo for that … it's a bit unstructured (in comparison to Goodreads et al) but it feels like a throwback to the good ol' blogging times (G-blog represent!), and maybe that's enough.
A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Ich mag hier, dass ich z.B. micro.blog-Accounts folgen kann. Wobei sich meine Masto-Benutzung derzeit primär aufs Lurken beschränkt.
„Die nächsten 20 Jahre werden leichter für Menschen, die Unsicherheit aushalten können“
Krautreporterin Esther Göbel hat ein sehr interessantes Gespräch über Unsicherheit, Angst und Zukunftsplanung mit der Philosophin Natalie Knapp geführt. https://krautreporter.de/3367-die-nachsten-20-jahre-werden-leichter-fur-menschen-die-unsicherheit-aushalten-konnen?shared=f8b7e25b-9ebe-4a4d-b824-cdae241bc5f9
I've two HEY.com invites to hand out, if anyone is interested, just ping me @carlo!
First come, first serve, it's a free 30 days trial, $99/year after that.
One week in and I'm already doing more Mastodonning from my Micro.blog account than from this one.
