I'm thoroughly enjoying my time here on Mastodon, especially in Merveilles. This is such a rich community. Every time I hop on I learn things and am inspired to be better and to create more all while connecting with others. This is what I want out of social media.

I meant to post this the other day but got busy with other things. I bought @deerful's latest album on Bandcamp. It's so good!

I have very poor self-control, but it may not always be obvious to others because my desires don't typically lead me to engage in behaviors that are harmful to others, or even harmful to myself in a short-term way. For example, I have virtually no self-control when it comes to what I eat; but since that only affects me in the long-term, most people around me don't notice how truly impulsive I am. I shudder to think of what I'd be like if I couldn't resist more destructive impulses.
