Entering week 3 of working from home full time. I am real glad I didn't start off with working from home - the past 10 years of my career, be it internships or full time, I've worked in an office and learned how to work on my own with a support network all around me. Working from home is daunting, but I feel empowered to help myself when I need it.
I thought the GoT finale was fine enough. Better than the rest of the season. Cinematography was great. Some scenes were bad, but most had at least some redeeming factor. And I'm totally okay with the way everything ended up, even if the path there was shaky at best.
Aside from a few plot lines that they just destroyed all meaning of, this season would have been fine if they just paced it better. Major character and story changes were just so immediate.

Just joined a pixelfed instance. We'll see how this goes! I've never really used Instagram or any similar photo sharing besides just Mastodon and Twitter posts with pics in them.
Say hello to Telephant!
I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!
Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)
Join me here:
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Since starting at Stripe, my mental wellbeing seems to be improving, at least during the workday. Maybe I was burnt out. Maybe I didn't realize how much energy being in an office took. Maybe I just needed a change?
Working from home full time and, although it's just week one, I'm feeling really good about it.
Dude on NextDoor posting about offering "home defense classes" for using a gun to defend your home. Someone posts a Vox article about guns in homes increasing chance of injury/death.
OP calls Vox "a socialist website" and begins talking about "logic" and linking stats about other ways people die. In response to gun suicides, says people with "mental illness" shouldn't have any weapons.
This is not behavior I'd like to see from someone offering to teach others how to be safe with weapons.
In case you missed it, you can follow people across the Fediverse even if you're using a different kind of site.
For example, here's a PixelFed account:
...here's a PeerTube account...
...here's a WriteFreely account...
...here's a Plume account...
...here's a Friendica account...
...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.
