I am so emotionally exhausted all of the time.

I don't understand why I dread going to work when I like the people and I like the a work. I mean, I have a feeling the answer is depression, but it's still very inconvenient.

idk why I’ve been spending XOXO on Twitter when obviously Masto is the chill retreat I need. ANYWAY COME SAY HI I’m wearing a cherry patterned dress that HAS POCKETS.

Looking for more moderators for mastodon.social (paid), DM me if you are interested.

If I find someone I will reply to this toot, so if you find this much later than now please check it for replies before applying.

From my reading people seem to want reply numbers for one of two reasons:

1. Lets you know whether it’s likely useful to reply if you see a questions asked

2. Lets you know whether there are replies to read

I think for first I’d rather just have the ability to lock replies to a post. The poster then controls whether they’re still interested or not in hearing from people about it.

This doesn’t solve the second case tho.
