The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

10 things about me:

1. I am bipolar, type II, diagnosed in 2005. I suffer downswings maybe twice a year, but have many upswings- it conflicts with my hypersomnia and my fibromyalgia a lot. I am unmedicated, but my case is manageable.
2. I am pansexual- I have no care for the sex OR gender of those I care for. I love the person for WHO they are, not the percieved sex of their body. That being said, sexually, I am attracted to either sex- this includes trans-gender.
3. My 'child' is my cockatiel Gino, who is 21 years old. I will lose a part of myself when he dies. He's my child and my best friend. pics.livejournal.com/isteillia…
4. I love to sing. LOVE it. Thing is, even though I can carry a tune, keep rhythm and sing on key, I still worry that my voice QUALITY is bad, so I never sing in front of anyone unless I absolutely trust them.
5. I have tritanomaly in my left eye- it's mild, but still a hindrance and it makes me very dependent on the eyedropper tool in PS XD I had a cyst in my left eye when I was little, and it affected my retina.
6. I'm a college student at 25, and I feel stupid about it because I keep changing my major- I was in nursing, but I can't handle the clinicals- i can't afford to stop working- so I'm now working on getting a degree in phlebotomy. (A lab technician who draws blood for testing)
7. I live a few miles from the Woodhaven Dairy, and I have spent two weeks there. I cannot watch Silent Hill because of it, nor can I go back, because of the horrifying experience I had there. www.associatedcontent.com/arti…
8. I watch Pan's Labyrinth once a week. It always makes me sob like a baby. It feels good, and it's how I vent my feelings.
9. I sodding love cheese. Like, seriously. All kinds. Only kind I won't eat is swiss and Casu marzu. (don't google it unless you have a strong stomach.) But seriously, I can eat bleu cheese by itself. <33
10. I am a gerontophile. I adore older men. One of my ex's was 20 years older than me, and the only reason we ended our relationship was because he was a Chief and I was a petty officer that was transferred to his department. STUPID MILITARY FRATERNIZATION RULES. ARGH.


RULES:

1. You must post 10 different questions, but they must be your own questions, don't copy anyone else's questions
2. you must then tag other people who must answer your questions which you cannot answer yourself then ask 10 different questions go to their page and tell them they have been tagged
3. they can be random questions but mustn't be anything rude or sexual

1. Have You ever read a book by a Polish author? (if You're Polish just put a smiley here and go on :])
Sadly, I have not. I should!
2. Favorite Star Trek character? (sorry...)
Spock =3
3. What takes most of Your time during the day?
Sleeping, work, art, writing, roleplay
4. Do You add milk to Your tea?
Yes. Must have milk!
5. Do You write letters? I mean letters like paper plus pen plus envelope pre-internet type of letters?
Not anymore =(
6. Have You ever slept on the street (park, bench, roof, station etc)?
I've fallen asleep in the grass in a park before with my girlfriend at the time. It was Fall, and the sun was warm, breeze was cool. It was the best nap I ever took.
7. Do You watch tv?
Nope. Don't own a TV
8. Favorite song at the moment (links please)?
youtu.be/X9diXbRy3qs
9. Do You smoke?
One cigar every now and then, usually with coffee that has a shot of Jack Daniel's whiskey, a shot of bourbon, or a shot of brandy. Mmmm.
10. Do You think this man is funny:
*is still giggling at the astronaut skit*

IKR? I always try to avoid drawing faces in class, because it makes people giggle at me XDDD
WeirdoQueen's avatar
Pfft I wouldn't giggle at you. I'd sit beside you with my equally awkward expression and we'd look ridiculous together. It's all good.

O_O Now I have this mental image of Orsino holding a cheese platter and grinning evilly, like he's trying to tempt me.WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. XDDD

I mainly feel weird about school because most people my age already have degrees or at last have picked their majors =X

and I will look that book up! It sounds lovely!
coupleofkooks's avatar
Orsino with a cheese platter? Oh please, add a bottle of wine and some olives to this and I'm so lost... Argh..! don't put images like this into my head! I need to focus on my work!

Most people at my age finished their studies six years ago :P

.....make sure it's a deep red wine and the olive are kalamata. The cheese has to be a very sharp cheddar or a rich bleu. Maybe smoked gouda.

Oh Sekhmet's CLAWS, my brain is breaking with this image. Hgnnnggghnn. :drool:

Going to drool myself into a coma now.
