Pinned toot

Don't often get to see this: a toaster approaching telophase in its mitotic process, about to pinch off its cell membrane. Nature is truly amazing

I have a ton of friends here, but that isn't enough for a bunch of reasons, including the fact that my romantic life (or lack thereof) is a total disaster. At 40 as of last week, it feels a lot like I just... failed, irrevocably, and that that hope for my life is functionally over.

So if I have nothing to lose, I might as well live somewhere that makes me happy instead of angry, anxious, frustrated and depressed.

I guess that's it life-update-wise.

Professionally, life is fucking fantastic, and I think that's the first time I've ever been able to say that in my 40 years of life (sadly my work as founder and CEO of my lemonade stand at age 6 went underappreciated). I can live anywhere in the country and work doesn't care, so I have a lot of options and a lot of mobility.

Not sure anyone pays attention to this account anymore, but:

Getting my car fixed over the next two days, which is actually fairly life-significant for me - it means I'll have the ability to pick up and move long distances. DC is really wearing on my soul - it's just an incredibly anxious, angry, type-A, hypercompetitive place, and I can't really handle that anymore. Way overdue for a change, probably to Austin or Portland.

@0xKruzr @sophia in my admin console, I saw zero users from, but several from I ended up blocking both.

#mastoAdmin has blocked the instance, because they removed all abilities for us to report abuse to them. They also removed the ability for their users to report abuse from our users, which is also pretty troublesome.

While we normally do not announce instance blocks, this is a fairly serious action on their part and needs to be pointed out publicly.

The safety of our users in the Fediverse is very important to us.

Warning: If you don't schedule time for maintenance, your equipment will schedule it for you.

This has been a weird couple of weeks. Massive professional/work successes with huge real-world benefits/implications combined with a lot of good times with friends combined with the growing sense that my roots here are pulling up and I don't know what's next.

I feel like turning 40 should feel a lot less drift-y.
