Oh god, I start my grade 2 piano stuff tomorrow. Its a pretty big step up! Cant believe its been over a year since I started playing

I was just thinking.... If I was in a situation where I ever had to dance, usually the prospect would terrify me. But I've just realized something bizarrely reassuring: Theresa May.

Who knew that our ex prime minister could offer such a source of reassurance. She danced so badly that I could replicate her dance ironically and it'd be a laugh.


Wait, what do you mean Mastodon's first public commit was today 4 years ago? 4 years ago? It's been 4 years?

Don't you just love it when your apps code improves after a refactor, and as a result everything just slowly falls into place?

twice today, I've overheard conversations about the number of stops one needs to stay on a train for. appears that some people think of a stop as passing through a station (while staying on the train), rather than the duration between two stations. meaning that there's a worldview where it's possible to stay on a train for less than one stop.

What the fuck do you do if potential activists within your movement don’t get up and take action?

I was invited into a Young Labour WhatsApp group just after our election devastation, and it had great energy. But it didn’t last longer than 2 nights before everyone stopped talking and planning.

Nothing we set out to do has come to fruition. It’s like no one around here is willing to take action. There’s only so much I can do on my own as an inexperienced activist!

Hoping for a slightly easier day at work tomorrow. My social anxiety these past couple of weeks have been getting worse and worse. I just really hope that tomorrow things are a little easier.

@007 painfully accurate analysis. The doorsteps were an excruciating endeavor this election. What a depressing 5 years we have ahead of us.

Pretty cool: Signal is now using BlurHash (blurha.sh), the image placeholder algorithm I developed, which is also used by Mastodon, and of course Toot!:


@Rheall really well said. It put me off music for years. I finally took the dive last year to learn piano, and now it's one the most enriching things in my life.

I can't believe I put it off for so long. I can't wait to learn my and gain my grade 1! Wish more people would take the plunge as just a chance to express themselves.

We vastly underestimate the value of self expression and the many forms it can take

@tewha God damn, thats awesome! Enjoy! I've always wanted a Eukele... My parents got me a guitar recently, so I'm going to learn that first (around also learning piano, hoping so knowledge will transfer) and then splash out on a nice euk.
