I've grown a lot since the last time I was here. I quit smoking pot and don't drink very much at all anymore. I got married and moved to a whole new country. I found some work at a music magazine, quit that job, and then started my Master's degree.

Mostly I'm on FB these days. But FB kinda sucks. I think the days of old school forums like this one are over and done, though. I mean, look at the last time someone posted in any of them here.

I'm rambling now lol I guess ask me anything?

Sorry I was humming a tune.

Why does Facebook suck so much? And why should reposting other people’s content overtake actual user contribution? Am I wrong or is Facebook propagating mass culture and symbolic identities!

hey, I actually kind of dig the tune you were humming
Facebook sucks because it's now used by a vast swath of people. So many people use it, so the algorithm has to cater to the largest number of people possible. Unfortunately, that means trying to please everyone, which results in pleasing no one. Basically, you're not wrong

I just hated college and didn’t want to feed the mass hive mind of what I saw freshman year so I never had a Facebook when it was cool.

What’s the currency rate in your new country?

That seems a little high. I never really understood how that works.

Does that just mean the economy is more volatile with inflation or changing prices?

It fluctuates. I don't fully understand it either, but the main thing that it means is that people who come here from the US can exchange their cash for quite a lot of money. I think the lowest exchange rate I've seen is $1~100 ISK, so 2,000 ISK was worth about $20. Lately $20 is more like 2,500 ISK, but a cheap dinner is still about 2,000 ISK, so it's a very good time to be a tourist
