>We're spread out all over the world, we're all poor by some shitty miracle, and I find it difficult to picture a future with them because they're not too well off
>Never had too many friends in person, not socially terrible but just never could find common ground with anyone, even in college now I just can't connect
>realize I might have nobody in the future to talk to, worse still that I'm going to lose the people that meant the entire world to me only a year ago
>been melancholic as fuck lately
>terrified I'm going to have a future with no friends or SO

I remember the days in Middle School where I just had nobody to talk to for what seemed like ages on end, the people I did befriend were such superficial relationships it probably adversely affects befriending people now. Shit just sucks and I don't see a way out by this point.

I know that fear. You need to join local groups. A cosplay comm, lolita comm, LARP comm, etc. If they're big enough you'll find someone to connect to. Even if you don't get mega close to someone immediately, you'll have some social interaction and that'll give you the skills to meet more people and develop friends faster. I used to be you in middle school, too, but I stepped waaay out of my comfort zone in college to make friends with everyone I could, and I'm much better at making acquaintances/friends.

Do any of you gulls ever get this feeling?? I feel like its a random surge of cosplay depression, but I'm an artist who wants to exlusively work on my art (improving, and maybe one day get a table at cons) but I feel like cosplaying is holding me back from that

Making and spening money for cosplay has just become really tiresome I'm not sure what to do, lt has been my life for nearly a decade, I dont think I can put it down but I also think its the step I need to go forward with my art......

>> No.9217095

>>9217084
there's no reason to rid yourself of it all at once. perhaps wean yourself off of it if you're very serious about committing to your art.

i've never had these feelings because i'm one of those people who believes that "growing up" shouldn't mean leaving the things you love, like plushies and mangos and stuff. however it sounds like your passion is waning. take it a step at a time, but no matter what definitely work on your art because art is a great skill to build.

>> No.9217101

>>9217084
I'm an artist who cosplays, and yeah, sometimes you have to sacrifice one hobbies' time/money in order to put it towards another. However, I don't think throwing everything away is a good idea- especially if you're doing it under the false assumption that being too mature for cosplay is directly linked to having an artistic growth spurt. If you want to focus on art, then focus on it. You don't have to throw everything cosplay-related away, just spend less resources on it.

I've been having ongoing issues with TMJ and jaw pain, but seeing how terrible my cross/overbite looks from multiple angles really put the severity in perspective. I don't have dental insurance, and the prospect of getting braces (again) in the middle of my twenties seems awkward, but I can't believe I've been walking around like this for a while. I also feel awkward that it's my vanity that's pushing me over the edge, and not the pain and constant "jawlocks".

I'm not looking forward to having braces again and especially dreading surgery, but I've decided I'm going for it anyway. Sacrificing a few years of discomfort and burando releases is worth it if it means I will feel more comfortable in my body for the rest of my life. I'm regretting not doing it a few years sooner, actually.

I was an urban hermit for about two years, I only left the house to get food with weebux. I'd withdrawn enough that I had Castaway moments when I had to speak to people where I would have to remember how to make words with my mouth again

I reintroduced myself to society, got over my terrifying fears of getting sick/my heart stopping, got in shape again, every time I left my apartment was a fucking trial, couldn't even visit my mom's or my brother's without thinking I was going to die

Now I'm going to college again, straight A's, it's flu season though and I'm terrified, also I can't connect with anyone. Everyone I talk to it's like, they're on a separate island and I don't understand what happens there. People talk about themselves constantly and it all feels like bullshit, when I try to talk about myself it feels like I'm lying even when I'm just trying to talk about what I like

I thought getting over my anxiety attacks was the big part but it was just the first part, now I'm in this weird alien world where everyone is malicious and I'm a completely empty personality aside from viciously hating things and being avoidant which I'm entirely aware of but can't do anything to change since it's too far outside of my comfort zone

I'm ranting but what you posted about realizing you have nobody in the future to talk to really struck a chord with me. There's actual zero reasons for anyone to involve themselves with me and realizing that being social means making yourself useful to others is soul crushingly disappointing

I've been the guy in this sort of situation before and it has always made me feel uncomfortable. We aren't dumb, it's apparent what's happening. I can think of at least two occasions, and in both of them I was interested but I'm not a homewrecker. At best I have to believe that they're unconsciously flirty or maybe too comfortable with me. At worst I have to believe that they're looking for a way to have a stable relationship while also having fun outside of it, while leaving themselves blameless (i.e., trying to get me to move first so it's my fault if it comes to a head). I'm not really interested in either and it leaves a bad impression over time.

I went to a convention this weekend, which was great. However, since then I've felt a loneliness that feels deeper than usual.
All the people I knew had someone they went with, while I just jumped from group to group with people I knew. I wasn't really included. Except some people for a while, but it's only a matter of time before they lock me out too, like always happens after I've known someone for a while.
It's also that I know there were so many people there I had seen before, but we didn't even notice each other.
Also, when I think back to a few years ago, I didn't know anyone. But yet, I somehow ended up getting included in groups with people I didn't know. And I'd get to experience their interaction, and I got to see some new people living lives completely different from my own. But now, if someone didn't talk to someone I didn't know, I wouldn't interact with them at all. I wonder what happened. I used to be able to meet locals from this part of the country, and have fun. Now I only talked to other people who weren't from there. What happened? It seems things are just getting worse. I'm losing everything that used to be so great at the cons.
What's happening to me, socialization used to be better than this

Also, general worry about dying fandoms. There hasn't been much interest in Homestuck meetups lately, and the bronirs are just turning into a closed friend circle that excludes me. Also less interest, but technically enough for meetups still

RIP. She's always talking about wanting to do upper scale events, too. I really wanted to see her in a vampire inspired coord.

Worrisome feels for the other comm event, though. Apparently only 3 people have bought tickets to what's supposed to be a big catered halloween party. And two of them are myself and the host. I've been exhausting my own money and crafting resources putting together nice accessories to giveaway at this thing, and it doesn't seem like it's even going to be a thing. The deadline for tickets is in like, 3 days. I'll probably just end up putting them up in my etsy or whatever, but still. I had expectations.

I got into medical coding a few years ago while I was at community college, not knowing what I wanted to do with my life. I was working in retail (still am) and realized I hate people and am not made for customer service (still do). My mom works in healthcare and suggested it to me. I went to a 2 year program at my community college and got my associates in outpatient coding and medical office administration, the courses were not difficult but be prepared to buy a fuck ton of coding books haha. I'm also taking the CCS exam for extra credentials and to become an actual certified coder, most employers will want you to have that. Right now is an excellent time to get into coding anon, since ICD 10 just came out. all over the US are tons of job opportunities so I doubt you'll have trouble!

The price varies with the type of corrections you need and how long you have to wear them. Invisalign can't correct all problems either, I had to have actual braces. My teeth have shifted a little and I can get invisalign to correct that instead of snother retainer but my actual bite problems required braces to correct them. You can usually finance it though.

I think the trick to having some upscale meets is to plan them at less busy times and don't try to compete with the more weeby meets or hate on those even if they aren't your cup of tea. Take and post lovely photos at more lovely venues and that often attracts a few more people to join in next time. But some people will just never want to come to those more elegant meets so you usually get a much smaller turnout. I actually prefer that.

He's never going to stop wanting sex, so stop leading him on.
You seem to be afraid he'll stop hanging out with you if you tell him straight out you're not going to have sex with him. If he does that, then he's not a friend, just an orbiter "nice guy"(tm) waiting for a chance to pounce. Maybe you want an orbiter, I don't know. He is a bad person for trying to make you cheat and you are a bad person for not nipping it in the bud.

Wait them out and never tell someone its your dream dress. If the item really is overpriced the listing will expire.
Once that happens pm them asking if its still available and offer a really low price, later offer the price you are willing to pay. A scalpers confidence is always lowered when an item expires and if you are lucky they will be desperate and accept a really low price. However do not be obnoxious and pester them if they say no. Be respectful and don't be overly desperate.

Good luck

Thanks anon! Yeah, I didn't say it was my dream dress or anything. I just said I was interested and asked if they could go lower, but they said no.

In all honesty, this colorway may be one of the more sought after ones because I didnt even see any of it in the completed auctions on LM. I know LM isn't the end all be all of dress prices but that's just what I was going off of. There was one other auction that sold the same dress (different color) for the same price this seller was asking, so I'm not absolutely appalled by the price, just a bit perturbed.

Girl, you should just try to get him out of your life.
I think that he's kind of stuck in the past and will continue to orbit around you constantly. I know that feel too well. I tried to keep him as a friend, but i noped out the day he fapped on voicechat saying how he missed me.
I told about it to my boyfriend (it's a good thing to do, so there's no secrets between you) and he said that it was ok. That he doesn't have the right to judge what i did in the past and that he trusted me.
After a month,the dude finally stopped. I'm still sad because I liked him as a friend but i guess he couldn't see me in such a way.
I hope he's doing ok and will eventually find someone and some help. But I eventually see him around on a special 4chan thread and he seems to be ok, i'm glad about it.

Do what I did, as an ex-fatty. Record your weight every two days at the beginning of the day, before you eat. Even better, take progress pictures every week/twice a week along with the weighing. Post it in a place that's easily visible to yourself on the day-to-day basis. What I did was, I taped it to my computer desk and just noted Date : Weight down the paper. I never have anyone in my apartment so it's not embarrassing.

I've been having a good think lately about the future of my already 4-year-long relationship with my boyfriend for a number of reasons - His fear of commitment, inability to plan for the future, certain personality traits and the fact that he's the only experience I have and I don't/can't know if I really love him. The usual.
I guess he just made my mind up for me by leaving a running commentary on my Skype of the livestream he just watched of various small animals tearing eachother apart in a box as though it were the most exciting and hilarious thing he'd ever seen.

>Here comes the /cgl/ bit.

We've already paid for and planned a three week trip to Japan next year with a group of friends, and I'm sure as SHIT not giving up my chance to visit the motherland and buy as much jfash as I can carry, so I won't be able to leave him until we get back.

That'll be fun.

He's in business systems and java applications or some BS. Monotony is awful. I dual majored in bio and chem both. the worst part was that I put off all my real core classes until the end of school so I could spend a lot of time studying in glorious nippon-desu. I did a study abroad but got rejected from Japan and got stuck in knock-off Japan. (S Korea) When I returned I had 1 year of school left and realized I hate chem and bio both. I had no choice but to finish up or I wouldn't be able to afford to graduate (financial aid was running out) so I rushed through the end of my BSc to graduate on time.
After graduating I was unemployed for 6 months. I applied at over 500 places and kept a meticulous spreadsheet. I was denied a lot of places. I was offered about 4 positions, 1 in wastewater management at 30k/year overnights and weekends. 1 at a bio lab at $12/hr and the drive was 1 hour each way (south of Akron). 1 was chemist at a painting/coating company which was $13/hr overnight in downtown. This R+D position was the best pay offer but i'm afraid I'm stuck in data entry forever. What I realized in job searching and in my current jobs is a lot of lab techs get stuck. There's not a lot of upward mobility without a phd. I am the youngest person in my company at 24 and I have coworkers in the same role that have been here for 20-25+ years and barely make 60k. My first year end raise was $500.

Well it's not like you aren't intelligent enough. People don't just "oops" get a BS in dual majored chem/bio, nor do they accidentally get to study abroad. When you're at the peak of your performance and surrounding yourself with smart people who are finding their success, it can be difficult to keep your spirits up.

From what I've said so far I think it's pretty obvious that I'm going to recommend some soul-searching and a change of policy in your life. It's really important that you don't fall for the sunk-cost fallacy that future effort is somehow less valuable because you're not finding as much value in previous effort.

You absolutely need to leave the work that you're doing currently. It would be a shameful waste for you to rot away there. That said, you don't need to rush it either. Plan and act decisively. If you have to eat the frog now to enjoy your pudding later, do so.

Do you want to post-grad work or research? Can you stomach going back to school? If you had infinite resources, how would you shift your career? Think in best case scenarios and then adjust to reality. I think your situation is far from hopeless and just needs those next decisive actions taken.

Don't do it.
They'll take advantage of your riches.
Also, don't blow all your riches, for that matter. Just because you have money doesn't mean you should thrown it all away.

Most lottery winners go bankrupt shortly after, not because of some curse, but because they don't have the discipline to handle their newly acquired wealth and think "Oh, it's just a trip here, I can afford that now. Oh, it's just three new cars, I can afford that now. Oh, I've always wanted to own a summer home, I can afford that now. Oh, my best friend is having debt issues, I can bail her out just once" etc.

In other words, don't do things you wouldn't normally do while poor. Paying off your loans, getting a house, and paying for YOUR OWN trip to Japan are all pretty cool things to do for yourself with your money. Paying for someone else is getting into the loose-with-new-riches territory.

And people will befriend the rich so long as the rich has money.

If something were to happen and that money were to disappear, many times those friends will quickly disappear. It's best to make friends with those who do not ask for things and even find it rude to take things.

I certainly can think of one friend that if I had the money... I'd take them with me in a heartbeat. But they are my friend when I have nothing.

Seek those kinds of friends. I don't think it's weird to say... pay for a friend's travel expense (airplane) or even the hotel. However, that friend should have their own money to spend on food and activities. You shouldn't ever foot an entire bill.

You'll likely be okay. Stretch marks, the horrid awful stretch marks, are associated with pregnancy for good reason. The worst stretch marks are associated with rapid weight loss or gain. They are scarring from the skin being unable to 'heal' from dermal tearing.

But stretch marks happen because the skin isn't just some material like a sock that once it is stretched, it is stretched. Skin is living, it heals, it destroys and recreates itself all the time.

You may never get rid of stretch marks... but you ain't going to have skin all loose and flabby hanging everywhere. It doesn't work that way assuming you aren't some 60 year old woman.

But it's a huge waste if I just stay holed up in my room all day.

I had an appointment with a psychiatrist but I missed it because of one of my dad's fits of rage. He woke me up really early with it, then I couldn't sleep and when I finally did I slept through my alarm. I'm too scared and ashamed to call back for another appointment. I'll never get better.

My comm is very "don't ask don't tell" about it, as in it's not against the rules but everyone says they'd never go here and anyone who does get outed as posting here gets a ton of shit. Even if the post you were outed for was totally innocuous, just the fact that you're a seagull opens you up to suspicion. The mods sometimes post here when things get out of hand but of course they were always linked here by someone else who is never named or blamed for anything.

I sometimes try to fish for other comm members on here just so I can have an IRL seagull friend, but everyone's super quiet about it and I don't blame them.

I used to struggle with anger issues, I never hurt anyone physically but I've yelled, banged on walls, thrown shit, broken things. My brother told me that it affected him deeply and it's one of the most shameful aspects of my life. Your father's actions are inexcusable and it would be best if you moved out as soon as possible. You can't start enjoying life until you can like yourself, and as long as there are these extremely negative aspects to your life you aren't going to get there.

You 100% need to get to the psychiatrist, they're going to let you get your thoughts out of you mouth so you can consider them objectively instead of being trapped in your head. Please give it your all, you're capable of more than your past experiences! You made it this far and stopping now would put that all to waste.

I had a cat who died a few years ago, she had to be put down because she had kidney failure. Last night I had a nightmare where I was playing with her again but then her eyes turned grey and she started meowing weakly for help and her face slowly turned dark purple around the eyes and mouth as she died in my arms, as if she was bleeding under her skin. It was alarmingly detailed and the rest of the dream ranged from confusing memories from my childhood to scenarios where I'm stuck in a room with some antagonistic force. I woke up and I couldn't breathe at first, then I realized I could breathe perfectly fine.

Lately it's been nothing but school and work, problems paying for school, tfwnomoney, no food in the apartment, no room for my hobbies and those hobbies are purely what defines me as a person. It's been really difficult lately and it's getting to me. Thankfully I have some time off coming up but that just means working more up front to earn myself that time.

Situations like this are exactly why I stick to myself, I turn to shambles when I'm stressed and I wouldn't ask anyone to deal with that. Hopefully I can do relax and look at dresses some this weekend (after school work, of course).

That's really shitty but I'm sure they're just trying to help. If you told them not to directly and unequivocally, that's definitely grounds to be upset. Being upset doesn't really help anything though, really, either way. If I were you I'd be angry but there isn't much you can do about it so it's all the same at this point.

I told them before I didn't want to tell him. My Gran wanted me to go tell him personally and I said no so then she went behind my back to do it herself. I don't get why it mattered so damn much to her, especially when she made it a point to talk about how he'd be such a terrible little boy.

Yeah, I'm pretty angry still but this is just how things are with them. I can't tell them anything because it gets spread around, mostly on my Gran's facebook. The only damn thing she's kept to herself is me being gay because god forbid anyone find that out but everything else? Straight to facebook for everyone to see.

I'm just so tired of it and then they ask me why I never tell them anything or why I don't talk about school.

Wall of text of con crew/staff drama incoming.

I always had minor issues with the friend who started bringing me to cons. We just had some pretty big conflicts as far as morals go, and she kept a lot of really shitty people around just because they had some personal benefit to her or financial benefit to (including a guy who sexually harassed me and has been kicked out of cons for doing it to other women). Regardless, I tolerated her because I was afraid of losing not just cons, but my entire crew.

One of her biggest problems is boys. She's the type that has a one track mind when it comes to boys, even though I have seen her OBSESS over a guy only to get bored and cheat after a couple months. She also seems to be completely delusional about boys liking her. Like, she had a huge falling out with a close friend and according to him, part of his irritation was that she was going around telling people he was into her when he obviously wasn't. She's done this with the chair of the con we work with, too. Basically if she wants a guy to like her, she looks for things she can twist into signs of feelings. I think it's a self esteem thing.

Anyway, she's spent years acting like a big shot at the con we work for. She's been going since the beginning and staffing early on, but she never seemed to be as important as she portrayed. But, whatever. None of my business.

A few years ago she met a guy at that con, and it was a "love at first sight" thing. He denied her, she got mad and hated him for a year or so and got involved someone else. Typical, she still eyed other guys. While we were still living in the same state, she was eyeing a former co-worker. Initially she tried to push him on me and I declined. because I'm picky af and wasn't ready for a relationship. She took this as an opportunity to break my ears about how so totally awful her boyfriend was for having trust issues with her even though she was "honest about her past".

>> No.9223031

>also I apologize and don't expect anyone to read this but I need to vent where she can't see it

She wouldn't listen to any of my input, it was just waves of excuses, so in a last ditch effort, after I met the guy he wasn't that bad and I gave him a chance. She backed off.

Months go by, we start having issues, and I'm moving away, so we break up but remain friends. She's also moving away to live with her long-term boyfriend and from our talks it seems like she lost interest in him anyway. He also joined us for the con that year.

Months later, she and her long-term boyfriend finally decide to break up. Several times I visited her and was present for the arguments. She was rude to him, he defended himself, she got upset about it, etc. Neither party was in the right, but she was very clearly the instigator. However, she began making long posts about how awful he was, even throwing an "abusive" here and there. I just began to see this side of her that was just... spoiled brat incarnate, accompanied by the usual post breakup "My life is soooo hard".

Her mega con crush comes back. They're talking again, she's obsessing again. One of our work-con's offshoot cons is coming up and I agreed to help her staff, she agreed to give me a ride. She has car trouble and can no longer provide transportation. Telling me a week before the con, I tell her I can't go anymore, she tells me to find transportation. When I tell her there's no way I can find something for a ~1-2k person con 12 hours away in a week's notice, she gives me sass, acts like its my fault, says I let her down, etc.

I'm already going through personal shit and I don't need that, so I stop talking to her as much. She's still trying to talk to me about her new boy, and I largely dodge the subject. I just... Do not fucking care about whose dick she's trying to tug.

So anyway, more time passes and our major con rolls around.

I and several other friends are staffing for her, but we're given very vague details on what exactly we're doing. She's not part of her usual department (which she was convinced she was going to become the head of).

My ex is with us again. The big kicker? Her crush is rooming with us, too. Guess what she was focused on nearly the whole time?

We're on Information. I know the con fairly well, but half her staff just... doesn't, like several are complete fucking newbies to the con and working a position where they're answering people's questions. Or there's changes and new event info that no one was informed of. She scheduled me and her together, and almost everything out of her mouth is about the crush, or trash talking the demoted former head of the department. She keeps leaving to go on breaks, too.

She said to me, smiling, that she slept with my ex, and that he has feelings for her. I don't care, but her story was far from the truth.

She did not "sleep with" my ex.

First night of the con and we're already fed up. We're scheduled an hour over (but that's due to last minute drop outs). Other friends/staff of hers are being blown off and treated like shit. she's known for her room parties, but the first one of the con was literally empty because almost no one wanted to deal with her anymore. She was off with crush boy anyway.

I'm rooming with most of the people having problems with her and we all sit around and vent Fri night. We all share the same sentiments that she seems too focused on her boy than on the con and her friends. What's more is we begin talking about other things and find out not one of the 5 of us has ever been given the same story by her. With my ex present, I say that she told me he slept with her. Immediately he shouts "What!? No, she got me blackout drunk and I woke up with her on top of me."

Dead silence, then a long-time friend blurting out "Holy shit my best friend's a rapist."

He didn't even realize it because of how the male victim thing is usually swept under the rug. He was noticeably uneasy, but he told us the rest of the story. She went back home to visit, she hung out with him, they started drinking, she force-fed him more and more drinks, she got to talking to him about feelings, he said he had feelings for her at one point long ago but they died off. At some point he just wakes up on the couch with her riding him, then blacked out again. She told him the next morning that he was struggling a bit and he says he responded with "Yeah probably because I didn't want it."

So we're all just kinda... dumbfounded. The next morning I wake up physically ill (which was partially due to other factors) and pretty much spend the rest of the con in my room, which I feel like shit about because I feel like I'm doing a disservice to the other people in the department, but she's at least informed that I'm sick and it doesn't seem to be an issue.

She has another party that night, but we throw our own, and its 1000x better and we also don't have someone shitting themselves and someone else throwing up an entire bucket's worth of booze vomit like her party did so I'd say we lucked out.

After things mellow out we find out other people also were having issues with her, and some are putting in official complaints with the con.

Just this past week I learn that she lost her paid position at the con. She blames her long time friends, who she has now decided she wants nothing to do with. Some friends have tried confronting her about issues, but she doesn't seem to care. She knows about the rape accusation from my ex, but he was a bit of a sissy about confronting her so she thinks she did nothing wrong.

At this point, I and others are done with her, and done with staffing for her at that con.

She lost her paid position as a department head because she got enough reports. I don't know the details of who reported what and the reasons given for her termination though. I think she's just back to being a low-tier staffer now (like above volunteer but under department head).

If she got terminated as a paid employee then that's not enough because she's still a member of staff and she can be a liability to the convention if she does anything else.

I wanted to file a report myself after that mess of a con, to be honest. I was hoping my ex and the friends she gave the most crap to who were filing reports would get it sorted out because I had other shit to deal with, but apparently things didn't go as expected.

It's just a sticky situation altogether. That con is her life and has been for the past 15 years. She seems to have gone on a huge downward spiral since her breakup and local friends say she's been drinking a ton. I'm really worried what could happen if she lost that con, not for her sake, but for my ex's. I'm going to talk to him and see if I can get him to not wuss out and maybe have a serious talk with her enforcing that what she did was -not- okay and have him file the report with the con if she's still of the "I can do no wrong" mindset.

When you get into a typical relationship, normally if you date for x amount of time and typical progression then isnto get married. A problem with me and a typical dating websites is that I really don't want to get married and have children etc for personal reasons, which is kind of the typical goal for men on dating sites who don't just want a hook up or a one night stand. I don't want a relationship but I have done one night stands in the past but it's messy. It seems to be a good between fixer with the added benefit of money.

>> No.9223400

Yeah but I thought you were already only talking about sugar daddies, who as far as I'm aware don't have a goal of marriage.

Since you don't really want any long term relationship, just get a sugar daddy. Seems like you'd be the perfect candidate for something like that.

end this stupid meme of throwing away plushies and mangos to grow up. growing up doesnt mean you have become a joyless asshole. the shitty thing about having multiple hobbies is having to master time management and budgeting which are to very important skills in becoming a "grown up".
Man if you cant even handle doing those basic things you arent even an adult. you can throw away all your cool stuff and start doing typical grown up things but you'll still be a lame unhappy kid masquerading as an adult.
life is about improving and finding happiness dont make yourself miserable for the sake of thinking youre moving forward.
tl;dr youre actually hindering your own growth by throwing your shit out because you dont know how manage time for each of your hobbies, cant budget, and your notion of growing up is a tired cliche normalfags perpetuate.

Update on the party, looks like there are 12 people now. I'm not feeling so glum now.

I would hate to have nicely crafted stuff I could have sold be taken with indifference.

I broke up with my gf last week, she didn't love me, and she never cared about cosplay. Now, I'm on my way up (money, exercice, nice car, etc). But all I want is a nice cute girl who loves me and she's not faking it, and spend a lot of money on her dresses and costumes. My dream is cuddling with Raven from Teen Titans. Just holding hands, laying in bed.

I was just able to remove a convention wristband I had been wearing for the past 2.5 years. Makes me wonder how much earlier I could have done it, for how long has it been loose enough? Looks really bad now, maybe it could have been prettier if I had been able to remove it before. Also feels weird that it isn't there anymore. I wonder how the habits I've developed to keep it out of food etc. will be affected.

On another note, had one of my best days of the year yesterday. Went to amusement park and got to be with some cosplayers, and it was so much fun. One of them mentioned inviting me to join a Facebook group for random city cosplay. Haven't heard anything else about it, but still hopefull.

It's much more befitting to practice art in an enviroment surrounded by the things you love.

Now, I do get rid of things such as manga once I've read them so much that I can't possibly read them anymore. I get rid of clothes every couple years just to avoid owning 1,000 things I don't wear. I also get rid of trinkets... but I usually sell them secondhand or give them to people who I know will enjoy them.

Maybe you just need to fix up your place and yeah... take a break a convention or two from cosplaying.

On instagram. My IG is mostly my training log so it's a lot of gym videos. I have a few WIPs for cosplay on it as well. I thought I understood why they followed me on my old IG because I posted lots of drawings of my friends (they're all into jfash and lolita). Sometimes I posted plushies, too, but my friend said that ddlg accounts kept commenting on her plushie pics, so I decided to stop taking pics of them too. I see why ddlg accounts are interested in lolita and stuffed animals. However, now I have ZERO of that after starting a new IG.

I actually have a tumblr too that I haven't updated in SERIOUSLY 2~3 years, and I mostly reblogged japanese artists with cutesy styles and pics of dogs, and I STILL get about one porn blog following me a week. What is wrong with people?
