Hello Mastodon. I want to read more interesting books in 2018 and I want to share the experience with as many people as possible. I want to start a book club where we read one 200-300 page book each month. If you're interested please post book suggestions and we'll set up a poll to pick books. I want to make this as inclusive as possible so we'll be trying to select books that are coming available in libraries and on the Overdrive app.
I have an amazing #CockerSpaniel 🐶
Let me do my #introductions
I’m an applied mathematician. I used to
do research in computational biophysics but now i’m just trying to pay Sallie Mae.
Happy to be here, but still figuring out mastodon (it’s reminding of my ICQ days).
I recently moved to London, which has been interesting. I like traveling, exercising, not putting up with bullshit and minding my business.
I'm only one chapter into Wildings and I'm feeling a real strong urge to get a cat.
Some time ago I decided to commit to kindness and positivity. I try to be as nice as I can with everybody, understand that everyone deals with its own struggle and act instead of complain.
Of course, sometimes I feel like ranting and being grumpy, but I realised it happens less often.
This approach is making a huge diference in my life! And places like the Fediverse help me a lot, the Birdsite and the lot are too aggressive.
I'm grateful for this beautiful community 😊
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
