Loving Your Work, a suggestion for how to deal with the bad feelings we have about our projects. http://www.briecs.com/2018/03/loving-your-work.html
New Open Metalcast Episode is uploading as we speak.
Well, as I type.
Hey Mastodon, here is a quote that I needed and maybe you did too:
"WRITE IT BADLY. Write it badly, write it badly, write it badly, write it badly. Stop what you’re doing, open a Word document, put a pencil on some paper, just get the idea out of your head. Let it be good later. Write it down now. Otherwise it will die in there."
— Brandon Sanderson on overcoming writer’s block to create a first draft as a professional author
If you like Mastodon, there are various ways to help the project that don't involve any money. For example, you can help us spread the message of Mastodon on other platforms where you still have accounts. On Twitter, our outreach account is MastodonProject. On Facebook and Instagram, our outreach account is joinmastodon.
(Apparently my toot on regret crashes Tootdon. Interesting.)

Regret is useless if the only thing you take away from it is that you are somehow inferior for the decisions you make. Regret is a disservice and an attack on the decisions that got you here and they discount your tender heart and your about to choose in the moment on what is best for you with available information.
Wishing that you had done something different to have a better life takes away from the beautiful gift you have now, here, to learn and do better.
Day 10: A song that makes you sad:
Kiss My Ashes (Goodbye)
from Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light by Woods of Ypres
This whole album is a gut-punch, (especially since the lead singer / founder of the band passed away soon after it was recorded) but this track especially.
Day 11: A song that you never tire of:
Cynic: How Could I? from Focus
This was a tough one to pick because there's a lot of songs that I don't listen to for a while but am thrilled to hear them again.
But this one was where my mind went so we'll go with it.

Octodon is a nice general purpose instance.
