Deep Thoughts


  1. I’m on twitter – and I find that the “community” has huge cross over with Instagram and still don’t feel any sense of community.
    I have a little better sense on Instagram and I follow the hashtag of whatever pattern I’m loving – Right now I am obsessing over the “Granny Go Round” jumper and thinking it might fullfill the itch for a new blanket as well as provide me a new sweater. I tried to talk the little in to it and she demands a bear pocket, so there you go, no granny sweater for her.
    I’ve been dipping my toe in to Discord, don’t love it. I find it hard to follow for some reason. I miss Rav’s interface and layout 😦
    On clothes – I occasionally look for new stuff since I’m only working part time and Santa Barbara is very relaxed. But I found “The Curated Closet” and the review by the “By the Book” ladies so helpful. Now I take photos of outfits when I’m in a dressing room and I’ve defined my style. In a nutshell it’s “Goth Librarian Lite.” Note, not actual librarians since, as mentioned, super casual. But the mental image of a librarian.


    • So interesting. twitter is a place I’ve given some side eye to for years on whether it’s something I want in my life. I don’t have FB, so IG is really all I have. I use discord exclusively for gaming communities, but it’s only those with whom I actually game or game in their multi gaming empire. Those are fine, but I don’t find it super engaging.

      Thanks for the tip on the Curated Closet. I’ll give that a poke. And I love “Goth Librarian Lite”! I want to figure out my style so I can label it that easily and people can understand it that easily too.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment!
