I moved to the US and started my new job almost two weeks ago.

Interesting times to be in a place where I barely know anybody, for sure.

I'm still figuring out how to stay in touch with all those people who are now 8 or 9 timezones away.

But I kind of also want to meet new people who are in the same timezone... (Pacific)

How is that supposed to work? I have no idea, but I guess it's worth trying... something.

A month after moving to the US, I have managed to at least establish some contact with people on my own timezone who are not my colleagues.

I mostly used social networking sites that have some notion of local (Bay Area) community.

Not sure if Mastodon has anything like that. That would have to be an instance related to a specific geographic area, right?

Status update / continuing my thread about moving to the US:

It's been more than 3.5 months.
I've finally got my own apartment now (as opposed to temporary housing, for which I'm really grateful to $job).
Yesterday my furniture and household stuff arrived. Today I got an Internet uplink set up -- Gigabit fiber for the first time! <3.

Things are getting better.
Slowly, I'm arriving.

@NerdResa wow missed a big thing here o.o

Congrats you are arriving :3

@NerdResa :yayblob: that sounds like it worked out pretty good so far, I'm happy for you :)
