The date on the last post before this one says that it was published on the 13th of February last year but that is very much untrue. Yes it was written before that and completely ready to be published on that date, but for some unknown reason I stopped. I stopped posting and checking on Mastodon a week or so later as well. Completely stopped social media, as that was all social media I had besides just messaging individual friends.
Sometimes I feel a bit like Princess Carolyn from the show Bojack Horseman. I get that feeling, usually late at night right before I go to bed, that feeling of “You gotta get your shit together!”
In the show I believe she says it in the morning, and the rest of the quote does not really fit my situation, but that first sentence, I can hear it in my mind for hours sometimes.
A group of friends and I recently had the great idea of hanging out, but of course because of the whole deadly virus situation we couldn’t really do it in person.
It’s literally illegal to go outside at night right now, so going out wasn’t possible. Also, we don’t really want to risk it. So the plan was to do it online.
We had done that before, videocalling while playing a game, or using Teleparty/Netflix party to watch a movie together while chatting. This worked great.
Life on the Fediverse or the Social Cloud is interesting. For me this is the first time I participated in an online social network for a couple of years. Long ago I was an avid Twitter user, before all the crazies, bots and advertising took over. And I mean avid.
I’ve had blogs multiple times in my life, some public, some private. Some dedicated to a subject, some pretty general.
Some for multiple years, some for a week and then forgotten about. I currently have one still running about a little travelling I did,
I’m kinda moving it from where it runs now into a whole new system.
