As of late, I have been doing wax on ink drawings, mainly laying down a layer of alcohol ink and then going over with wax based colored pencils. My bread and better is actually graphite drawings but I've been in a coloring mood lately. I rarely do pure colored pencil drawings because it takes a MASSIVE toll on my hands. They take so long and to get specific details, like drawing eyes, I have to press hard. Sometimes I paint, sometimes I make clay sculptures, or rather, start them, my best friend molds them, fires them, then I paint them.

And my manager crossed the line in January when she scheduled me a 6am to 7pm, then a 2am to 7pm shift. She is the epitome of an "absentee manager." The handbook and manager's application, which I read, said the manager must work 3 out of every 4 weekends. I have never seen mine work a single weekend. She is off Friday-Saturday-Sunday.

Outside of keeping and breeding axololts, we are a total gamer house. lately it has been WoW classic for my hubby and ESO/Fallout for me. Anything that occupies a lot of time, especially since Covid put a major wrench into our other plans. Had to cancel our wedding and honeymoon in April. We still got married, just not how we planned. Now instead of rescheduling and spending money on a party (we had the ceremony we wanted and thats what matters), we are building a house. I spent a good chuck of quarantine drawing a floor plan and designing the whole house myself, so I will now have a room specially designed to keep, raise, and maintain my axolotl obsession. I have a very patient husband 😂.

I'd definitely be interested in seeing some of your pieces. I love art. But I DEFINITELY know that scenario. I had my previous manager try that bullsh*t and eventually I left my home store and moved to 35th street. He was more of a manager that was into numbers than actually building a strong team. He was very sarcastic and not very good to work with. After I left a lot of people ended up leaving or quitting. Dont worry Karma does come to those who deserve it.

Elder Scrolls is definitely my favorite. I cant tell you how much time Ive spent playing Skyrim. Same with Oblivion after it came out. I wish theyd just come out with the next installment already. I have to say though, ESO has been a fun way to fill that lore craving.

@Piterboy

Literally coloring a drawing right now as I'm reading this. But I see you quoted me and it's outdated. I quit my job, so my manager isn't a problem in my life anymore, scratch that hobby I guess.

Oh, I have so many hobbies. Riding antique 3-speed bicycles, writing, drawing, making and wearing costumes. I also volunteer with the local trail association to help build and maintain hiking trails. So I do like to hike too, when I'm not building the trails.

I work on an antique steamship, and I live on a sailboat, so I also spend a lot of time out on the water. If I'm not on a boat, I'm usually swimming, whether at home or in a pool during the colder months.

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?
