      Howdy!


      I'm looking for a new group of people to get to know and maybe hang out with during RTX this year. I'm planning on staying for the week prior to the event.


      I'm currently in a group chat, but I don't really feel like it's a good fit anymore, so I'd love to meet some new and different people!

    • What a difference a year makes

      1 year ago

      Lylith

      This time last year, I weighed 160+ pounds. I was dieting, but it was going nowhere fast. I was living in my parents' attic. I'd received quite a few warnings and negative reviews from a job I was working hard at. I hated it.


      This time last year, I wasn't happy with myself. I barely left my little attic room, and the only social interaction I had was with my cat and my RTX group on GroupMe.


      This time last year I was annoyed with my physical appearance, but my job restricted me from expressing myself the way I wanted. Stress eating and the lack of physical activity at my desk job piled weight on my body. I was shamed in my workplace and told to cover up for wearing dresses that showed my shoulders but were otherwise completely fine. I was shamed for wearing leggings with flat shoes and long tunics while my coworkers were fine wearing them with BOOTS and long tunics. I was extremely unhappy.


      Fast Forward


      As of right now, I'm down to 125lb. I'm no longer dieting, but maintaining. I live in an apartment I love with a big ol' kitchen! I got a new job and I'm amazing at it. They absolutely love me, and have repeatedly told me about opportunities to advance, though I've only been eligible for advancement for a little over a month. It's retail, but I love it.


      Right now, I'm happier with myself than I've been in a long time. I am friends with people at work, I see them outside of work, and I see my circle of friends more often. I'm still talking with the same RTX group, but our bonds are even stronger now.


      Right now, I'm actually enjoying how I look and I'm trying to move outside of my box when it comes to how I present myself. I have bright magenta purple hair because my job allows it, and I love it. I'm wearing crop tops and high waisted bottoms now where I would have never even touched them before. I'm putting more detail into my makeup when I do wear it. I can wear basically anything I want to work, as I work night shift, so self expression isn't an issue and I'm always comfortable.


      What a difference a year makes, and I'm excited to see what the next year brings

      A GOOD ONE?!?


      So last time I posted I was bitching about insurance, and you know what? I got it all figured out JUST IN TIME.

      On March 31st, I called my job's HR dept and asked what my options were, and they gave me the corporate number, which I was not enthusiastic about calling, but whatever.


      I call them, and explain that I never got my packet to enroll, explained to them all the crap that I was dealing with, and this blessed man opened a new enrollment window for me, so on MARCH 31ST, the LAST DAY possible to not have to pay tax penalties next year (you get a 2 month exemption and only have to be insured for one day of the month for it to count), he gave me the insurance I wanted and I got my card a couple weeks later.


      I also got a raise at work, so that's good, too!


      In other life news, I've just been working on my cosplay, gathering fabric and patterns and accessories. 


      OH And I also dyed my hair purple! FINALLY. I've also gotten to as thin as I probably ever will, maintaining a 125 after starting my weight loss at 160 pre-RTX2016. So here's a self indulging selfie for yall

      I also traveled to North Carolina with a couple friends and hit up Panic! At The Disco's Death of a Bachelor Tour in Greensboro and it was amazing.VgYZqRV.jpg


      Okay bye

      So I was denied for medicaid, because I make way too much at 9.68 an hour (rich I know), and we are outside the open enrollment period for marketplace plans.


      I've been looking for short term plans because that is the only thing I can get now that open enrollment is over (I didn't apply during open enrollment because it's taken since JANUARY to get my rejection letter from the DHHR so I didn't know I was denied yet).


      My problem is that none of these short term plans qualify as "essential coverage" that satisfies the tax policy for the ACA. I know the ACA will be changing, but I'm 90% sure what replaces it will be worse, so I'm not banking on the change helping me in any way, so I still feel the need to get insurance until Open Enrollment at work.


      Any ideas?

      The most difficult part is going to be her pendant. It WILL NOT be exact, but it will be in the realm, and that will have to do. I've already got most of the stuff to make it.

      I also already have the black choker (thank god plain ass chokers are so "in" right now), and I'm getting free fabric swatches from purpleseamstressfabric.com to choose the fabric for the bodysuit. I also already got shoes but they will need to be altered for accuracy.

      More to come!

    • About that life update

      1 year ago

      Lylith

      So I realize I only post negative stuff, which is usually due to the fact that I really need somewhere to vent that my family doesn't have access to. Well today is no different. 


      So thanks to some bullshit, my old landlord is demanding we pay rent for months  that we did not live in the apartment. August to November, and more than likely we'll be responsible for December as well. 

      All in all, that's $3,500 and now I want to die. I can barely make rent at my current place, so I have no idea how I'm going to pay for this, and they are threatening legal action. 

      I'm at a complete and utter loss. Usually I can think my way through problems, but not this one

      I figured we'd keep the cosplay thread clean, instead of clogging it up with Doctor Who discussion.

      I don't blame you for disliking Matt Smith, but I personally loved him...I just hated most of his episodes. Series 6 was horrid in my opinion, and Series 7 was just kind of bland. I liked Series 5, though.

      I haven't really been paying too much attention to the modern Who, I've been focusing more on the classics, but I'm looking forward to Peter Capaldi.

        I hope Capaldi is given some input on the scripts. He's been a fan for decades and really doesn't want to see the show sink low.

        I liked the Van Gogh episode a lot, but my favorite episode from Smith's era was probably his very first episode, the Eleventh Hour. It was a great introduction to him after RTD dragged out Tennant's goodbye in an effort to potentially alienate the audiences toward Smith.

        I don't hate HIM, I just hated the writing in general of those seasons, Moffat dropped the ball, and a lot of his episodes are all flash and no plot, and I dislike that. I want more episodes like the Van Gogh episode, that was the only 11th Doctor episode I actually enjoyed. Not this "Dinosaurs on a spaceship" type crap.

        I have high hopes for Capaldi, but if he's given a shitty script and direction, there's not much he can do

        Yeah I can see that. Either way I probably am gonna log soon. It certainly was nice to meet you. Though I'm sure once the thread gets working for me again tomorrow I will be back on it, or even if it does so tonight.

        Yeah some threads break when it tries to make a new page, just have to wait it out. If you keep the page open, it usually doesn't happen, so a lot of us keep a tab open all the time

    I'm actually really really new to cosplaying, I've only ever done 2 real ones, and I'm actually just now taking over as admin for RTWV, so I don't feel like I'd be able to give as much time as I should to a cosplay group. I'll definitely be a member though and help where I can if you'd like to PM me the link to join!
