noooo i paused at the side of the sidewalk to finish posting this and then she saw me and smiled and waved, why wasn’t i ever taught to be cool around pretty women

she took a sweet picture of me on a boat because she liked how it looked

i’m such a preteen boy sometimes. i get so flustered when a woman is nice to me.

a woman and i were in the same vicinity and after 45 minutes when we were leaving we started talking and she got my number to text me a picture and now so childishly “wow!!!!! she’s so nice to me!!!!!!” WHY AM I LIKE THIS

shout out to how good the monkey emojis are 🐵🙈🙉🙊🐒

this history museum’s tag line is “come see what’s _old_” and i’m very into it

lately, red wine gives me headaches and i'm mourning the end of an era. an era of infinite casual red wine

i wanna make a hoodie that says ANTI ANTI SOCIAL SOCIAL CLUB

how do i consistently have so many dreams, dozens, hundreds, in which i am driving a car only to realize that i got in the seat behind the drivers seat and i can’t reach the pedals

depression and jet lag are kicking my ass because i have finally woken up for the day and it’s 4:47 pm

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
