Follow Request 

I realize I might violate people's preferences regarding follow requests. Many people suggest having some interaction first before accepting follow requests.

I very much prefer to listen to others, so when I make a follow request, it's in the spirit of "I want to hear more from you."

Those two things might be exclusive, but if anyone is curious about why I'm seeking to follow them, it's because I find them intriguing and I want to learn more from them.

Someone's already made this joke but: at least Australia didn't vote to leave Europe, yeah?

The popular vision of Greece is ruins so it makes sense to have a stage full of ruined chairs

If it matters, this American thinks the Lithuanian jam is the best.


Am I watching a bunch of Norwegians saying they want to fuck my grandma? The hell?

Watching in Europe and... y'all take this seriously, eh?

All that to say,

If you want to get to know some cool kids on Scholar, welcome, pull up a seat, the coffee machine is in the kitchenette over there

When I was small, I did not understand why Samuel L. Jackson's character in Jurassic Park asked everyone to hold onto their butts.

Now, I know. Oh. Now, I know.

I see people calling the other sites "corporate social media" and I'm getting choked up

Hello Mastodon art people! I’m Julia, an illustrator and naturalist from Germany. I’ve quit all social media a few years ago because addictive algorithms, ads, infinite scrolling and tracking surveillance were killing my creativity.
Mastodon is likely the last social media experiment I’ll try. Here are some birds for you, because although I’ve left Twitter, I love drawing birds.
