My black cat, Zuko I forgot to mention that I have a cat. I adopted him back in May. I was browsing The Meow Foundation and I came across Zuko. His cute little expression was too much to resist. When I went to go see him I saw several other cats. The only one other cat at the shelter that caught my eye. He was a very handsome cat named Edwards but while I was petting him he turned around and refused to interact with me.

Day 4 of 100 Days to Offload Content Warning: Topic is mental health One of my favourite K-pop artists recently came out with a song, +5 STAR+. It’s definitely a feel good bop.

Day 2 Content warning: Politics Philosophical Books I went on my first Bumble date yesterday. It was a friend date though, not a date date. I found a girl who said she was interested in psychology and philosophy. Intrigued, I swiped right. It was a match! We talked about books we’ve read. She was reading Crime and Punishment whereas I was reading A Streetcar Named Desire. I was immediately excited.

Exploring the Fediverse

Day 1 What is the Fediverse? The fediverse (federation + universe) is a collection of federated social networks running on free open software. That’s a bunch of jargon. Basically, different sites use the same social network software, and they can talk to each other. It’s an attempt at recreating the decentralized web. Some popular ones are Mastodon and Pleroma. First Dip into the Fediverse While browsing the Interwebs I’ve seen a couple of Mastodon instances here and there but I never really understood what they were.
