Is PHP really a dying language like I keep hearing from people? Or should I start looking into re-writing my applications in something else? (Web apps)

If I seem like I'm always happy, it's probably just because I'm only posting the good stuff going on in my life. Please, don't let that make you depressed because "everyone else is so happy, why is my life so terrible?"

(I would never have thought of this if I hadn't read a book a while back about how social media depresses people because of the constant positivity.)

Furry is such a powerful thing.

*I* am a wolf. *I* have claws and fangs and fur. *I* can grow or shrink to fit the situation (and completely disregard the square-cube law, because it's such a buzzkill).

And unlike a roleplaying game, it's not just some character. I can literally say "this is me" and it is.

How? Because y'all just accept it, roll with it. You have your own crazy ideas for what you are, anyway!

It's so, so wonderful. :D

I just watched Krampus (2015)... I don't think I'm sleeping tonight..

advice for new mastodon users 

I'm trying to do my best this year to enjoy Christmas... I haven't enjoyed any Holliday's in a while because of the fractured nature of my split family...
Hopefully I can enjoy myself this year without much backthought. ❄️☃️🤞

I finally feel free! I had Twitter for the longest time but with all the recent drama and privacy concerns I jumped ship. I am not one to like social media much, never really had anything but twitter.

So far feeling right at home here which is rare for me and social media. :)
