Advice to anyone on Mastodon who's new.
Let me say this if you are on here because you think you're going to somehow convince your friends to migrate here or you think you will be an influencer like over there, I got news for you, prepare to be disappointed.
If you're willing to have patience though, try communicating with some of the people on the local and fed. timelines. Even the simplest thing like a compliment will mean a lot to someone and who knows you might make new friends.
reflecting on content warnings & stuff
If there's one thing I've learned to value irl by existing in this online space, it's content warnings.
I think they encourage good communication habits overall, and not just because they help people avoid triggering topics. For me, "is there any reason someone wouldn't want to hear this?" is an important question to ask before adding my thoughts to any conversation.
#HonestyMonday I never really thought about it that way before joining mastodon.

I recently got Fantasia 2000 on DVD at a Collectibles shop by me for $1 practically brand new on DVD. It was partially open but the security stickers on the top and bottom were sealed preventing the case from being opened.
I checked Amazon to see how much it was brand new on there and a brand new copy on Amazon from a seller costs (no joke) $43.57 with Prime.
That's not even adding the sales tax.
OK so I got the item today at Bed Bath & Beyond this morning and since I wasn't charged for the item until I paid for it at checkout I got it at the store price.
Which was on clearance for $4 and with Black Friday discounts come out to around $3.20.
That's probably the amount of money I would have paid for it anyway since it's freaking WrestleMania Steel Cage Challenge.

I sometimes write about stuff nobody on Mastodon cares about but me. Those posts will be unlisted.
