there’s a lot of unspoken pressure to keep liking the things you used to like and to keep dressing the way you’ve always dressed and to never question what you believe in and basically “be yourself” has slowly morphed into “be what everyone knows you as” but trust me when i say if you just give it up and simply make decisions and take actions based purely on what would make you happy, you’ll gain a very comforting sense of self peace

How to find textbooks online for free: a post. -
Textbooks are fucking expensive, and if your professor doesn’t require a physical copy (most don’t - they just want you to have the book at hand. Or maybe even not. Some professors literally give no fucks about whether you have the book or not) and you don’t mind having…
damasquerade said: I don’t really want to offer any judgements one way or the other, but just wanna say it’s cool to post about this aspect of life that a lot of us deal with day to day. It’s not something that’s commonly talked about and I can totally relate!!
Thanks damasquerade! I think a lot of us get caught up in the wish fulfillment, and fantasy aspects of the dolls; which is fine! However, I feel like for newbies, its hard not to compare yourself, to veterans in the hobby, who are older adults, with established careers, who can afford a large collection.
Although I pride myself in making due with what I have, even I get swept away, and forget it takes a ton of time, money, and energy to get the results you want.
My boyfriend gave me an intervention -
When I told him the price of the doll I was saving up for he flipped a shit. Okay he wasn’t mad, but he was floored. I’m a generally pragmatic person, and when we broke down the numbers together with our budget, a full set luts is an obscene amount of money that would take…
Thanks for your response. I know he said it’s technically my money and I can do what I want with it, but I felt super guilted into, “fine if you want to spend your entire paycheck on a doll while I bust my ass paying rent then do it!” And that stung like a lot.
I was just slightly bummed that it would take me about a year to save up for this doll, and he asked why I was sad, which led to the cost of the doll and he flipped out, which I knew would happen so I was trying to hold it in. The budget he did plan out was super fair and pragmatic and he put all my needs into account.
I guess he was just upset that I was even thinking about putting away an extra 50 bucks each paycheck for spending money to save up for this doll, because that means I wouldn’t be equally sharing the expenses for rent, utilities and groceries, which I didn’t realize I would be doing.
Once he got the numbers out I could see where he was coming from, and the fact that I’m not making as much as him (since he has an actual career and I’m working a little over minimum wage) is already a huge thing I’m insecure about.
I’m still going to attempt to save up for the doll, but with the budget we have set, in order to get the doll in a reasonable time frame (around Christmas) I will have to order her nude, bald, and blank. Which is fine. That’s what I did with my first doll, I just wanted something gorgeous and stunning straight out of the box so I could go straight to diorama building.
