Honestly I think that you should do what you'd feel most comfortable doing. It's true that doing porn is the fastest way to build a following and make monetary gain from but the problem is that you can easily get stuck in this genre of art and it'll be hard to branch out and do you own thing that's not NSFW unless your work or the idea behind it is that good or interesting. I've seen this happen to a lot of artist who went the porn route only to burn out after a few years.

I currently do freelance art while having a part time job and it certainly helps.I think that >>489932 is right that at least when starting out, try to keep a part time job just in case for emergency funds and until you're able to make enough money through your art to support yourself.

Is CreepShow Art considered good in the community now? I havent seen her mentioned recently, her channel improved but I know people dislike her format, which is why i think shes sticking to collabs with other artists and topics everyone can agree on. I only bring her up because her twitter got alot of attention recently. I know she checks forums like this pretty often but Im genuinely curious if people like her as much as her views currently suggest.

I see many threads on here venting about mental illness, but how many of you are working to overcome them and the obstacles they bring? What are your personal goals for this year and long-term, what are your goals for today? What have you done to get there?

Post your achievement, no matter how small: from getting up to take a shower, to applying for your dream job.
Share your current progress inspire other anons so they can better themselves.

One rule: No advice.
This is a listening thread with no judgement, similar to Alcoholics/Narcotics/Codependents Anonymous.
The goal is that no one knows each other or holds each other accountable; we're just stating what we would LIKE to happen, and figuring out what steps we need to take to ACTUALLY achieve this.
Some may realize their goals are not realistic or are too overwhelming for their current situation. By not judging or giving advice, we're allowing anons to change their minds, to evaluate, to make progress freely on their own accord.

I was similar to you anon, 6 years but I was smoking bongs. a couple before work then nonstop after until bed. I stopped in February and I feel so much better. I can remember things, which keeps me organised, which makes me feel more in control. I always thought it was helping my anxiety but since I stopped my anxiety is way way down. 2 weeks after I quit I had a joint and had a panic attack. but this last month I have started having the occasional joint in the evening, always shared with a few people, and it's nice to know I can do that now. just take a good long break before you do.

I was actually surprised how hard it was to stop. I struggled hard to sleep, woke up sweaty multiple times a night, and had a ball of rage in my chest during the day. so maybe be prepared for that, I feel like people don't really talk about it. but it's worth it!

Holy shit, that was my post! 9 months later and incredibly coincidentally today was the first day in a while that I didn't smoke all day long. So basically I'm struggling as well. But I'm in a totally different place than I was when I posted that because I kept up with the exercise and eating well (although I do slip up a lot too, it's all part of the process [unfortunately]). Progress really is up and down anon so i wanted to post honestly and let you know. Even though I'm still clearly struggling with weed I've made strides by focusing on other symptoms of my unhappiness. Now that I've made those strides elsewhere I'm right back at really, really wanting and needing to stop smoking. As other things in my life fall into place and I get healthier, getting high all day long just doesn't make sense. I hope I'm explaining it well.
You're totally in the right mindset with exercising, meditating, and cooking. Remember to take baby steps as to not overwhelm yourself. The exercise kind of awakens the body and your mind will want to follow suit and it'll be even more motivation to want a clear head. At least that's what it feels like rn for me. I'm super neet-y and didn't have any semblance of routine so I began a simple one a few months ago and it has helped vastly. Idk if that's relateable to you personally but if so, consider starting a daily routine so you're not feeling aimless and like fuck it, you want to smoke. I'm sick of this shit too and I'm sick of hindering my mind and cognition by abusing marijuana. I totally relate to what you said about wanting your creativity back as well.


>>489249
This is super inspiring and helpful, thank you for sharing your experience! Congrats on your new mindset. I'm so glad both of you posted tonight and that I saw it. Not to be all woo woo but it feels like a sign kek

Double posting but >>489268
>I’m terrified to go without at least 3 joints a day
Take baby steps with this too. Smoke 2 a day or even 2 and a half–whatever you need to cut down even a little! Do it. It'll feel silly at first to be making such seemingly tiny changes but fuck it, no one ever died from feeling silly while doing something they know will help themselves. Progress is progress! In my post above this one I mentioned I'm quitting today too. My baby step is to quit smoking during the day. It's totally embarrassing that I can't just stop but I have to be kind to myself and find where my balance is of moving forward and not falling apart. I'm sure I'm rambling now but I hope my perspective can be helpful to you in some way

Thank you, this is really helpful. I’m going to maybe try a week of 1 in the evening and then go 2 weeks entirely cold turkey. For the past 3 years every bag I get is “the last one” and that’s not helping, it gives me almost separation anxiety.

Same as you i just want to smoke and be high all the time and I don’t care about much else. I’ve managed to get back into fiction writing but I can’t do more than 2 pages at a time because I’m just too high to know wtf I’m saying. I feel like my thoughts are constricted and that I’d be so much more mentally efficient and emotionally strong.

Also unrelated but I can’t talk to males I find attractive without behaving like a turboautist, sometimes they’ll be attracted to me too but I’ll just ruin it kek.

Knowing doctors, it really is a miracle that most of them don't kill the majority of their patients

No. 489248

I'm more of a spiritualist agonistic and skeptic who teeters between some level of believing and non believing. After being forced to go to private Christian school as a kid, even one of the more accepting branches (episcopal) I've hated organized religion since I was about 12 years old. Something about the idea of having to go to a physical church to pay respects to something you don't even know exists just grosses me out, but the actions of certain religious organizations / the proselytizing is what really gets me. The fact that so many churches are discriminatory and holier than thou and honestly don't follow the principles of the Bible itself at all are what makes me despise organized religion as much as I do, I guess. I always found sermons incredibly boring to begin with but I'm at the point where at times when I think there might be a deity that I think I shouldn't have to give money or swear allegiance to have faith in anything, it's stupid to do so. Religion as an organized sect has never done anything but disappoint me. Frankly I don't understand people whose social lives hinge on the circle they form in a place as absurd and as honestly creepy as a church. And I never will. I'll wear religious iconography sometimes in form of angel necklaces / pins that i inherited from my grandmother, but in all honestly I find the idea of churches/churches running charities pretty repugnant even if I consider myself antagonistic spiritualist. I seriously don't like churches/the idea of forming a social circle of people around religion.

Your best bet is probably to look at reviews, read synopses and figure out what kind of people are fans of the content.
Shortcut: Post on some place filled with misogynistic men, "Is (this work of media) more liberal/feminist bullshit? Don't want to waste my money" or "Is (this work of media) (whatever forum/site)-approved? Looking for redpilled media", then go by the responses you get.

Thank you for responding! It's really helpful to get feedback from someone who has been in the lolita community for awhile. Anyway, do you know of Bonne Chance Collections? If so, would those be considered Lolita dresses?

A containment thread for all the salty artfags of lotsoflovecow.farm!
- Ask about art supplies, but not too often as it will make the digital artists ree
- Discuss grievances about the art tuber community, but don’t be fooled by any that come to ask for our opinion; they will throw a shit fit because they work oh so hard and we’re oh so mean (but also we’re just haters haha :) so our opinions don’t bother them)
- Waffles may never be criticised because she has an illness and sick people cant be bullied on imageboards
- Everyone is beautiful and we are above the discussion of appearance unlike the other nonnies!
- Yes, we’re all sick of Arteza and SkillShare.
- No, this isn’t a TRA safe space, so don’t ree when you see the word tranny. And no, some retard discussing their pronouns doesn’t count as art milk, you turbo autist.

Welcome art tuber, enjoy your visit - we hope you find enough content to hit that 10 minute mark, because we are VERY empathetic to how it’s oh so hard to actually create artwork and have a personality in order to create your own content for your channel xoxo

What's the single worst thing you've ever done as revenge, anons? Do you feel bad about it?

I once convinced a girl (19) to keep a baby she planned on giving up for adoption, using reasoning I don't even agree with, because I wanted to ruin her boyfriend's (21) life for being absolutely horrible to me. I feel mildly bad about it, but the satisfaction I get knowing that he has no future now greatly overrides any sense of guilt.

I am handing my resignation letter today. It's over a month's notice. My last day will be 12/22. I feel so guilty!!! Tell me to calm down! The position I'm in is low-tier HR and its basically like a call center with like 8 older ladies. I hate it a lot and my boyfriend said he will help me out if I go back to school. I have been here for less than a year and the other ladies have been here since like '01. I'm 27 and I feel like this is a great opportunity for me. I never had the opportunity to study full time just because of family and bills/ unpaid internships. I am technically a senior at school. Please tell me to calm down or am i pulling a jerk move?
