@art Do you really boost art? Because all I see of your toots is boosting my two introduction toots... neither of which have art in them...
Last bike ride to campus, for my stats final. Will have to find a another #SamePhotoDifferentDay !
@guephren I really love the style of your landscapes! Are they traditional or digital?

@datn here, have a kitty I saw on my wall this morning (but other than kitties, I also agree)
Still trying to figure out PixelFed... Have a rose! 🌹
Last week I saw someone recommend rev.com as a way to make money from home by transcribing. Skeptical, I had a look to see if they were legit, and they seemed to be, so I signed up.
There's a small grammar and English quiz, and then a transcription test, to apply. If successful, you can see client transcription jobs and their pay-per-minute, choose whichever jobs you like, work as much/little as you want.
@guinan I have an interesting idea for another character - is your instance open to bots? Because I think Brunt, F.C.A., would be a good one!
Menstrual cycle, European women
I didn't think about it much when living in the UK. Everything was off-kilter, and there's always an adjustment period for a major life event like that. Between stress and new food, I was expecting changes and inconsistencies.
A UK friend visited for three days, and damn if I didn't get my period a few days early AS SOON AS SHE LEFT. >_<
What the hell is it with European women's pheromones totally overpowering mine??

Menstrual cycle, European women
I have always been very reliable and predictable with my period. Even at an all-women's college, my body seemed to keep itself regular.
But when a European woman moved into my house a few years ago, I abruptly and nearly-instantly was switched to her schedule. Just going home for a few weeks at Christmas was enough of a shock that my body took a while to adjust. It wasn't unusual to have a three-week cycle instead of my usual four.

Now that I've got my pixelfed.social accout up and running, I'm going to try to post my #florespondence there - here's the first one : https://pixelfed.social/p/bouncinglime/19131433272610816
What I can't find is a way to add alt-text to photos there, so I'm just using that for the caption. ^_^
But I would come try it out...
