Would love to take this "fresh start" opportunity to get to know any tweeps who have fallen victim to the algorithms. If we're connected across the platforms but haven't interacted much, come over and share some tea! (or maybe vodka better fits the current climate? 🤔)

Rewatched TITANIC for the first time in awhile and it still holds up so well! The production and sound design, costumes, writing, performances, music… I’m definitely craving more unique spectacle films of this caliber again, but it kinda feels like the last film(s) in that arena were Jackson’s LORD OF THE RINGS.

Am I forgetting others?

How do y'all transition between creative projects and recharge that muse?

My computer's spelling/grammar check is glitching big time this week and I have to keep teaching it that things like "it's," "doesn't," and "you're" are legit word options being used in the correct context. 🤦

Some people rely on these features for various reasons and are being steered wrong.

Started watching HBO's ' The Baby' the other day and I'm hooked. Such an intense concept, but looking forward to where it goes.

A short, but beautiful piece that conveys a lot of the emotions around "moving on" while leaving all the important parts of our humanity behind.

Big fan of tracks and often lean into them when I need a certain mood. The way captures emotions is an unmatched level of creative expression.

"Happy Outside, Sad Inside" from Martin Czerny is really hitting that sweet spot today:

Haven't woken up this early to tackle a script scene in ages! How do you all manage consistently??

After months toiling with that work/life balance and needing to focus on a lot of self-care, my brain's [almost fully] back in business. FADE OUT is in sight. It's been a rough ride, but I've learned so many new skills that'll make the next project even smoother. 🤗

Any other users active on here? How often do you find yourselves assessing your monthly trackers and making adjustments?

I just reduced my habit tracker by ~1/2 after realizing I carried over several unnecessary/neglected habits these last few months. Usually stick to the basic OG style with some personalized mods that have evolved over the years, but overall happy where I've landed.

Spent awhile wondering if I'd find enough shows to satifsy my love for the dark/cynical tones of BLACK MIRROR and INSIDE NO.9, but suddenly they're everywhere, and with that low-key splash I love to incorporate in my own writing.

You know I'm hooked when my initial response off the bat is "This is sooo F*d up! I love it!"

Really digging digital jigsaw puzzles lately. Anyone else have app recs they enjoy?

I think my relationship with Mastodon is stuck in a time loop. I keep seeing posts from "one day ago" that are otherwise stamped with dates from 2-3 days ago and I already struggle to keep track of the days of the week haha... ⌛ 🗓️ 😱

Found my way to @FediFollows. Lots of great resources for getting started on this platform, including lists of users organized by topics. Check it out!

Here is the tl;dr for the #newbies about #Mastodon terms:

Toot = a post (or 'tweet')
Boost = re-sharing content (or 'retweet')
Favourite = liking or bookmarking something (or a 'star')
CW = content warning (basically self-censoring a post)
Instance = a version of Mastodon (like a Discord server or Reddit subreddit)

Remember 2 things:

1. if you don't like the way an instance is governed, you can always choose another
2. The internet isn't the be-all of life. Go outside & enjoy the sunshine

No clue how to navigate this strange new world, and servers are too overwhelmed to even update my profile. But maybe that means my script might be done on time? 🤔 😂 How do I find folks? 🧐
