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.

Is here someone that loves games? I want to have a partner to play csgo, minecraft and other online games. I can't find someone that would play with me.. I found some dudes that play on server hosted by ggservers.com and they don’t want to invite me in their crew. I want to create my own crew to play a lot of video game and have a lot of fun playing them. In case that you want to play with me and create a new crew and have fun please contact me in pm. I will be really happy to have someone that would play with me.

@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.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

    hello, I am currently tubbing my axolotl due to cycling the tank. I have read different answers on how many times to do a 100% water change a day when tubbing. Some say once and some say twice. I just want to actually ask and get answers for myself. Thank

  • Murk:
    As often as you need to keep the water clean! Since you´re cycling, I assume you have a test kit. Just test a few times to see how long it takes for your ammonia to go up, and as soon as it does, change the water.

    Yes,I have the master test kit. Thank you! So just test the water in the tub that my axolotl is in now to gauge off of for changing?

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean
