I'm trying to decide which character to start with to get back into dolling.

I'm torn between Spider-Gwen and Burnside Era Batgirl.

...And then there's Kate Bishop...and Kamala Khan...Laura Kinney...Bombshells Batwoman...Viv Vision...Mockingbird...

...There are a lot of options...And a lot of costumes I really like...

Though I'm pretty sure I'm gonna end up making a Spider-Gwen av first. Because Spider-Gwen. But then who do I do next?

DOES WHATEVER A SPIDER-GWEN DOES

(For some reason I can't help singing her name and that's always how I end up finishing it)

I decided to go ahead and go with Spider-Gwen (with a huge motivation being that I'm tired of having a Halloween av in January...two years after I made the doll, I think). But Viv and Mockingbird are definitely high on the list. Viv might be next, actually, if I don't do Batgirl.

Superhero Doll Update: Actually, all other dolls may be put on hold so I can work on a Gwen/Miles entry for the Valentine's Day event, after I read the last issue of Spider-Man.

Also, I just found out that there's a Bye Bye Man meme, and I had to jump on the bandwagon.

So after three years at my mall job on and off, I finally left that job. The reason being that one of my managers broke the rules and told me I couldn't call out and she didn't care that my car couldn't handle the ice and snow I'd have to go through to get there. She wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise and guilt tripped me, basically saying I should risk my life and it didn't matter so long as I was there that night. HR fixed that pretty quickly, but I still have hard feelings about my former friend now despising me for doing the right thing (calling HR and staying home). I hope one day she can see why I had to go to HR about it and let it go, but I doubt it. My former managers are clique-y at best, and petty children at worst. (They genuinely have the maturity of badly raised teenagers and/or toddlers at times, ugh). I'm glad I left that job though since it's caused me so much stress.
Plus now I can stay at my other job longer which I actually enjoy and feel respected, even if the customers are awful at times. Adding on to that, I can finally start working toward my career goals instead (while still having a paycheck), so I don't have to work retail forever.

Sorry that happened Black, I was a part of the management team at my mall job (I was only there for 3 weeks at a brand new store because I got an offer to go back into my actual career-- education). My place was pretty cool about things even. They told me i can come back to work during summer since I don't get paid for 3-4 months as i'm only a tutor for middle school as I work towards my full certification but looking at the pay decrease I'd take for only being a part-time entry level compared to key-holder all of my income from there would go to gas I'd have to pay friends and family to take me to and from (i moved clear across town). So i'm looking at other options like YMCA, Boys and Girls Club, day-time summer camps, and tutoring from home to cover the summer months.

I just realized today how far I've come from my first base race to this one and wow.
Plus I've noticed people around the board improving more and more and had the most fond almost-teary-eyed moment of 'holy shit look how all of us have grown'.
So there's my sap moment of the day.

*teary eyes*

Yesterday was Pi day and I was so incredibly unprepared. I went to Grand Traverse Pie Company and there was a line OUT THE DOOR it was such a mistake. So instead I had not quite thawed freezer pie. Not as satisfying. I may have to pick up real pie later this week.

TODAY IS DUTCH ELECTION DAY

I'm so nervous, because the rest of Europe is about to vote as well and this is supposed to be like the indicator of what the general mood is going to be.

I just voted though! I'm cool like that 8) 8) 8)

I've gotten back into looking for a "real" job, that'll hopefully pay me enough to finally move out. My brother and his girlfriend are looking at places to move into since she got her first job right after graduating, and it kind of gave me a kick in the pants.

The one I'm really crossing my fingers for is working for this company called CREAM. It stands for Cookies Rule Everything Around Me. They're basically an ice cream parlor that specializes in handmade ice cream sandwiches. And you can choose which cookies you want for the top and bottom and the ice cream and toppings (for around the side) and everything. My friend took me one sometime last year, and it's the only time I've been but I thought it was so cool.

I wish I'd been around more when Glam! was more in its heyday. :( I dolled a lot from 2005-2007 and didn't get back into it until this year. >.> I keep thinking I'll open a shop on Melrose Ave, but with all the contests, bace rase and other stuff, I don't think I'd have time to fill the orders. :p

Ahh I remember when shops were active and people were posting. I remember when there were multiple pages of dolls submitted in a month, omg.

This is good too though, it is far more low key and significantly less stress. Not gonna lie, busy glam was super stressful.

My bracelet makes me realize how long its been since i've won an AC. TIME TO UP MY GAME AGAIN GUYS *fired up*

I'm Not Dead (Zili's Oops)

Postby zili-minikincrafts » Fri Apr 28, 2017 8:32 am

I'm sorry I haven't been around to participate in any of the fun lately. Time has been very short on my end lately. I've applied for full time work for the next school year but before I am offered a job I have got to finish my certification requirements, which is a practice test and the a final test (but I must pass the practice test first).

I'm also finding it increasingly difficult to balance work life, my own education (certification), social life (consisiting of many circles including Glam and my minecraft forum), and family. This has lead to major complications in my romantic life the basis for the majority of our arguments is that I don't spend enough time with the man who can't even balance his own social and work life... hummmm what to do, what to do! I'm also in a crazy job hunt to find summer time work that will allow me to pay my rent and bills as I'm behind on student loans. Since the last time y'all saw me on here I've started one doll for the base race. Anytime I sit down to my computer I suddenly have to go do something else that's more pressing -_- basically I've had no "me" time for the last couple of months. As soon as I find some time though I'll be visiting and dolling more often.

Zili, have you found anything yet? And also, what's involved with the practice test? I totally understand about work/life balance and relationships, while also wanting to keep hobbies. Hopefully he'll calm down a bit with all the stress that you're under.

I have spent close to an hour on Glam! every day, much of this time spent reading old topics to get more acquainted with everyone, and refreshing the new posts page. :p It's not that I have a lot of free time per se, but I carved two hours out of my day every day for artwork (and I group Glam! into that category).

Good lord I hope you don't go too far back. I did grow up here after all, I've had some embarrassing points in my Glam lifetime lmao. I suspect almost everyone has though.
I probably should have deleted some of my old posts but you live and learn when you get older I've noticed.

Also related to the thread: I finally got past my excitement/dread and started reading Assassin's Fate by Robin Hobb and I'm getting the strong feeling I'm about to get my heart ripped out and have one of those weeklong crying sessions whenever I think of the book lmao. The joys of book reading. (This has happened multiple times throughout all three trilogies of this series so it's likely an accurate expectation. Still I'm not prepared every time it happens.)
I'm really missing Pyro in this trying time, she was always one of my Fitz loving buddies. ♥

Don't worry; I'm not judging anyone or anything. I just feel like I missed out on a couple years of friendships I could have had, so I'm trying to get some background so that I can step in now.

Is the book good? I haven't actually heard of it but I'm always happy to pick up a new series.

Aww I totally understand, I'm sure you'll be all caught up in no time! We're easy going and friendly here B) I can't speak for anyone else but I'm always down for more friends.

And yessss for sure!! <3 The Farseer series is actually the first trilogy, and I could never have another favorite book series after that one. It blew all of my previous favorites out of the water! The second trilogy is Tawny Man, the third is Fool's Assassin (which the third/final book is the one I'm currently reading). All of the series are really sad in some parts but really worth it, that I can assure you. I will say the third trilogy is reaaaaaaally slow to pick up though because originally she wasn't going to write another trilogy, but it gets really good by the end of the first/second book. I could go on all day so I'll stop there, but if you ever read it I'll be super excited to know more people that have read it. I recommend it to like... everyone I've met lmao.
