Hi! I'm Crystal and I'm a graduated linguistics major from UCLA, with a love of humanities.
I'm also a prospective graduate student for musicology, hoping to study indie music in East Asian countries, and am currently looking for research experience (if anyone out there needs an assistant, for humanities research of every kind -- especially if music related -- please hit me up, I'm available :P)
I also have some degree of background in computer programming, and while I realized I'm probably much more attuned to humanities, I know just enough to be able to use Mastodon, or something 🤣
(And yes, that is indeed my real name)
@cemoon95 Hi welcome
That's an awesome name!
@cemoon95 Hi Crystal, welcome!
There's a fediverse meme for new accounts to toot 5 hashtags that describe their interests/things they'll be talking about. Or was, it seems to have died down now, but I always thought it was a good idea.
Very few folks watch the Federated stream aka the firehose, so hashtags are the best way to reach people off of your instance
@jessmahler Thank you! Will do!
@cemoon95 Welcome to the fediverse!
