Time for another round of #introductions
Hi! My name's Elisha and I'm still experimenting to see where I belong in the fediverse. I was previously @elisha but I didn't want to spam people with non-food related photos, so here I am, on maybe a more apt instance.
And yes, I'm from the Bay Area. Pier 7 is my favorite pier in Embarcadero.
Nice to meet you! :)
I’m considering doing an #OctoberPublishingChallenge - every day in October, publish one piece of written or video content, whatever the platform is, whatever the topic is, just something structured and rather sophisticated. Wanna join? Use the hashtag!
You don't need to speak English like a native
It's okay to have "weird" pacing when speaking. It's also okay to make sentences with correct meaning but uncommon phrasing
Don't allow yourself to pause because you're struggling to find the most native-sounding way to phrase what you mean
Just express what you mean in the most comfortable way to you

The worst thing about 21st century internet culture? The fact that two generations of people have been conditioned to refer to everything they do as "content".
Are you a writer? An artist? A photographer? A film maker? A blogger? It no longer matters. You're a content creator and something something monetisation.
Full video. It's 3 hours long and every second of it is crucial to your rights.
In many cases these billionaire CEOs refused to answer direct questions that have been extensively covered in the media and are directly related to their companies, saying they are NOT FAMILIAR WITH THESE ISSUES. Or that they will "get back to your office."
I know I'm super excited for the move but let me just say this - I have always lived in a house with family and extended relatives, and except to study and read, I always stayed and socialized in the living/dining room. I'm nervous the loneliness staying inside my own room is going to kill me HAHA
Everyday dribble about random things happening in (my) life - writing, books, art, tech, travel, and brown sugar boba. If you enjoy weirdly angled photos, you've come to the right place!
