About This Coterie

The general non-RP discussion. Join in here.




  1. What's new in this coterie
  2. Right now my biggest guilty pleasure is the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I've been binging the series on Hulu.
  3. Most of my business hasn't come back yet because things suck badly here in the states, so I'm mostly just floating sadly about it. Life's a bummer lately. Other than that just writing and waiting.
  4. Luckily I'm living in my friend's house, I've got the summer semester off and keeping to online classes until we decide as a house that its safe to take classes in person again. I did put up a DIY fence blocking off the backyard for the doggo and there's been fireflies and cool birds. Going between playing Stardew Valley and digging around in the backyard helps calm down my brain pretty well. Been kinda burned out for a few months after the semester ended, but my energy and focus is starting to return!
  5. 1. Updating/Revamping/Rebranding my site. 2. A lot of online courses! There are so many free ones, so why not bulk up my resume/just do some learning for fun. 3. Art, researching for my Art Therapy Masters I'm applying for too! 4. And a lot of self-care where possible- I was really upset when my knee surgery got cancelled and it changed all my plans for the next year or so, so I've been coming to peace with that.
  6. I also updated new things on my site, mostly coding things to streamline processes that had become cumbersone.
  7. I decided this was the perfect time to launch myself back into college. I'm regretting it slightly but also partially enjoying the challenge. I'm lucky to have a great team that pulls their weight and is balanced enough that we get things done while also being able to write as well. Otherwise, working from home and praying I never have to go back into that building.
  8. Honestly I’m just sleeping a whole lot at this point.
  9. My goals are heightened since I have unlimited time. I want to create a social media presence to create content. My goal is to start working on writing as many articles that I can and on as many topics as I can. Start a blog where I can post consistently and have fun at the same time. Finish building my writing site and come up with a concept for it. Finish building my AU Harry Potter Trio Era role playing site.
  10. .....working .....essential ( sacrifical) .....and sometime sleeping and getting to write. ❤️
  11. I'm considered essential with my job, but they did send me to do work from home so that's a plus at least. I provide captions for deaf and hard of hearing folks on live phone calls, and the quarantine and everything else going on now has spiked our call volume. I love helping people and I love my job, but the call content's gotten quite a bit darker and more depressing and disturbing due to everything. Aside from work, I'm mostly gaming and staying up in my loft area - I'm quarantined with two immune compromised elderly folks, so staying home as to not increase their risk to exposu
  12. I LOVE the 10th Kingdom! It's hard to find other fans, but we're out here. "What should we do, braid it?" Currently my binge favorite is The Great, a new tv show very loosely based off of Catherine the Great on Hulu. I gobbled that first season down in a few days, but kind of feel guilty about it. I've also gone down the rabbit hole with a new binge of Gossip Girl, mostly to shake my head at the ridiculousness.
  13. Attempting to cook more recently because I'm learning first-hand that quarantine bod is REAL. Oof. Working (from home) way more than prior because my employer is evil and knows none of us have other plans, so work/life balance has entirely gone out the window. Creating a Dragon Age pbp rpg, because I'm a big DA fangirl and because I've found DA roleplayer communities to be full of kind and talented people. I love writing in that world, in general. Canoodling with my fella but ultra missing girls nights, so I definitely want this pandemic to end sooner rather than later.
  14. I built a couple model kits and binged all of Scrubs. Outside of that, mostly lazing about, gaming, and writing.
  15. work went work from home.. so still working. But I've thrown myself into a bathroom renovation and building a new skin for absinthe on the side.
  16. Ignoring adulting as much as possible, rip Also took the time to build a site and try to be active in the RPing community in general again
  17. I've been spending more time with my family, since we're all home all the time now, haha. But I've also been working from home and really got my new roleplay started. It's given me time to get back into roleplaying after being on a hiatus for a few years, which has been nice. Things have changed, but I'm adapting. I've also been thinking about starting to read more again. I just have to figure out which book to start with.
  18. I feel like I've just now hit a real "doing things in quarantine" rhythm. Of course, there were plenty of movies and TV shows the first few weeks. Far too much snacking. Wondering how to entertain the toddler. Lots of pajamas. Now, I am finally reading! I have missed reading. Earlier in the quarantine I didn't have the brain space for it between exhaustion and anxiety. Currently, I am working through: Library of Legends - Current May Book of the Month Club selection Outlander - Audio Book I've taken up organization and cleaning, finally. People around me have had this energy since
  19. Resisting the temptation to drink beer while working from home! LOL So far, I have been good about not imbibing until AFTER work.
  20. I've also been playing Stardew Valley! Lots of video games, lots of neighborhood walks with my puppy. Lots of deep cleaning and some yard work. And wine. Lots of wine. 🤣
  21. My biggest 'guilty pleasure' show is Ghost Adventures. I love the paranormal and things like ghosts, cryptids, etc. And if it counts, The 10th Kingdom is one of my favorite things to spend a whole day watching.
  22. Tbh, I watch a lot of TV shows (I'm not really into films, so tend to just ... binge TV series all the time), and many of those are supernatural-themed. The thing is, I don't feel in the least bit guilty about watching them. The stuff I do feel bad about watching are the limited reality TV stuff I like: America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, Masterchef Australia, My Kitchen Rules Australia ... I *know* these things will rot my brain, and yet XD
  23. Thank you to all the people who are still working, or considered essential. I can't even imagine how brutal this has been for you all. My mom's a nurse, and I am glad every day that she quit working in the ICU years ago. ❤️ I, unfortunately, am one of the millions of restaurant employees who have been laid off. I know my position is safe with the company, but I also know there is still the question of whether it will survive months of takeout orders only... My bf and I worked for the same company, so we've been stuck at home together for almost 2 months now. He's decide
  24. I was off work before all this started for some mental/physical health reasons, so not a ton has changed for me because of it. All the province-owned parks have shut down though, which sucks because they own basically every outdoor, non-street space within walking distance so going down to the beach or trails is out. Aside from that, I recently got a hotplate after not having a stove for years, so I'm trying to teach myself how to cook (no food poisoning yet, so victory?). Plus, loads of Minecraft and working on my site and art. All about keeping busy.
  25. I am actually busier than I have been in ages thanks to the schools being shut. I would be due to go back to work in the next couple of weeks if it wasn't for quarantine (most of my office has been furloughed), but instead I'm going to continue trying to keep a 5-year-old happy and educated, and an 7.5-month-old happy and fed, for the foreseeable. It's knackering!
  26. I'm still in school so not much has changed for me fortunately. I am getting a little bummed out with all this staying indoors. Turning to RP to cope. It's also a really good time for people to try practicing mindfulness exercises! They can really help if you are feeling abnormally anxious or depressed.
