comfort zones, jobs
So I'm applying for a new job. This is exciting and terrifying. Getting it would mean moving myself and my husband to another country, no, continent. This isn't a fun prospect for me who is very at home in my comfort zone.

2. Don't question the awoo. The awoo is the awoo.
3. When you're trying to mutate a word, apostrophicals are a 'best practice' in Mastodon posts, if you want to be the Masto-most.
4: Don't denote numbers consistently, even in terms of the symbols following them.
5^ It'll feel weird. Roll with it. Masto's weird. Get weird. No, weirder than that. WEIRDER.
7? You don't talk about Masto Club.
