    Generally just the off-topic rampancy. Haven't really figured out the rest of the forums yet.

    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    This is a hard thing to pick just 1, so I'm not going to! Instead here are some of the things. 1. The people, it's been a while since I've had good community and when we pair that with social anxiety it becomes a problem. With painting I can sit around and enjoy the company of others while not being dependant on them like the case of dancing. 2. I can participate in as little or as much as I want, and I can learn as little or as much as I want. It's interesting I would have thought college was supposed to be the time I learned how to learn, but it wasn't. I was always one of those kids who figure out how to do a lot of things easily and then stopped when the learning gets hard. With painting there are challenges that I can participate in to benchmark my growth, but I'm not required to do so which makes it so for once I'm actually able to learn what I want and be self driven and is super refreshing. I found I'm learning more. 3. The joy factor. I don't really have a purpose in life so the closest thing I can think of is to fill the world with little sparks of joy. There's something about someone saying "oh that's so cool" , or "you painted this for me? It's perfect!" That really makes my day
  4. @SparrowMarie did you get your porcelain pallet on line or in person? That's probably the next upgrade I should get.
  5. I just got a set of dental tools for sculpting. I'm not sure how useful they'll be though because every time I look at them my teeth hurt.

    This is a pic from when I first set it up, it's had a few add-ons since that point but cleaning up my workshop was already on my list so we'll see if it gets done this weekend.

    Generally 3-20 hrs... Um depends on how much energy I have that week. Too little and it is only during painting group, too much and I start going out dancing.

    Building computers, I repeat building not fixing! Also I like to build pretty expensive computers so... Also @Glitterwolf I'm pretty sure that's a super power you've got there. So when are we going to see the thread of eating with Glitterwolf?

    I never really drew as a kid, in fact my fine motor skills were terrible to the point that in 7th grade the teacher realized I couldn't read my own handwriting. In the evaluation they told me I had the fine motor skills of a 5 year old and gave me a keyboard with a 4 line screen (alphasmart) to use for classes and standardized tests. I guess I got past that now since I can paint minis and because of a book recommended at ReaperCon have been sketching, like the skulls below.

    New hobby room set-up advice

    A whole room oh my! Still in a little tiny apartment here but made room for a painting desk. I can't use a pegboard but found the kalax system from Ikea to be great for organizing most things. Having the little compartments helps me divide up the space, 1 cube for scenery, 2 cubes for my shelf of shame... As to the desk itself nail polish racks are great for paints, I'm also thinking of getting another set for show off minis. I found planning in a light cube seriously upped my mini pics. Also on desks it's about finding the height that works for you, personally I'm short so I go with the lowest desk I can put together.

    What I should do: learn/clean all the things What I would do: learn some of the things then space out because I need the mental downtime. Actually this sounds kind of like a curse.
