How do you handle having social anxiety and being a waitress?
I don’t, honestly.
Lol but really it seems like the worst combination ever but tbh it helps a lot to teach you how to communicate with people. The thing is, it’s your job to talk to them and ask what they want to drink and all that so it makes t less awkward. When you’re talking with people and trying to make friends, it could be a lot more awkward and forced but when it’s literally your job, it’s not as awkward. Idk how to explain it but ya. A lot of it is also repetitive. Like “hi how’s it going, are you ready to order, how’s everything tasting, are you ready for the bill, thanks have a nice night”. It’s the same few sentences over and over. Once you get a bit more comfortable you can add in some more like maybe ask about their plans for the weekend or engage in light conversation. But no pressure if you’re too scared.
There have definitely been a lot of awkward moments I mean I’m an awkward girl lol. I’ve done some realllyyyyy embarrassing stuff. And I literally wanted to just crawl in a hole and die. But the thing is, you’ll probably never see half these people again. And if you do, they probably won’t even remember. I mean honestly, when a server says something a little awkward, do you keep thinking about it and remember exactly what they said and think about how awkward they are? No.
So yeah it’s a little scary but a lot of it is script and if you can get that script down, you’re good to go. If you want to leave your comfort zone, awkward stuff might happen but you also might have a really great convo and be super proud of yourself! Usually I’m so busy I don’t focus on the little awkward things anyway lmao I have 26 things I need to grab for 20 different tables so yeah my mind is kinda full, no room to think about that shit.
It’s kind of weird transitioning from being primarily a fanart art blog to a mostly original work art blog. There are bloggers who got popular doing fanart and then there are art bloggers who got popular doing mostly only original work.
I originally got my following from doing fanart! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more interested in expanding my abilities elsewhere. I’m also not as involved in fandoms anymore, I very seldom watch anime/ read manga, and when I do, it takes me a while bc of my social life, responsibilities like school and work, and other interests I have that take up my leisure time!
So idk, I guess I just wanted to give an update. I still like coming on here and I’m still making art! I just mostly post to my Instagram is all lol.

My hubs is so cool. He joins groups and looks for deals and researches and is just awesome. He found us probably about 800 bucks worth of cloth diapering stuff so far for like a total of $250. And now he is stripping them all so they will be nice and fresh for the Nuglet. Earlier we walked the fabric store while he was on the phone with my mom telling her what fabrics we liked best for the diaper covers she is going to make.
And he is always telling me new facts he learned, like “don’t use petroleum based butt paste because it builds up in the fabric and makes it less absorbent and harder to clean.”
Idk… I just like a man who cares so much about his kid’s fuzzy buns…. Lol.
YA GIRL IS READY TO GET HER HEAD BACK IN THE GAME OF CONTENT CREATING
I had writers block for a while (external stuff like school work clouding my mind)
im gonna do stuff again
pls pls pls PLS request whatever
I really like to write comedic things!
ill write whatever really except for smut lol
u can even ask for like idk make a quote around this and this or something
im gonna be more loose about the funny things like
if it’s more simple like ** as ** characters/quotes/etc then I could do girl groups or other boy groups as well!!
be as specific or general as u want but depending on how the writing goes I might branch out by leaving out details or incorporating more
uhhh ok so I just made this up but an example would be likeee I think Cheng Xiao as a bra would be the expensive sports bra everyone buys but is too scared to wear to actually work out because it’s so nice and pretty ughhh idk that’s just what I thought of now
or also SOULMATE AU PARODIES I HAVE SOME IDEAS!!! BUT MORE WOULD BE APPRECIATED
TO MUTUALS/FRIENDS: since I know your personalities, etc U CAN ASK ME TO WRITE U SOMETHING (self promo low-key: examples like my Daniel soulmate au for Alex or my baejin milk scenario for Jackie)
im a writing blog and writing expands way beyond just fucking fanfic n shit like that
it’s not really writing but if u ever need advice/my opinions and perspective on something you can ask! if u kinda want an in depth response I can do that too but I won’t rlly know unless u tell me bhjvbhjf
I didn’t reallyrp get into aspects of creative writing until last year so I know I’m lacking but constructive criticism is nice! or saying what u liked too so I know that it’s a good point to include or something idk kdjsjdj
my ask box is open to literally annyyytthhhinggg it can be like bra anon talking about her cup size, a rant about your parents, a req for woojin shit, anything rlly!!
hhhhfuck replacing ur passport is expensive n also a process like i might not even b able 2 like i can’t rly say my parents stole my passport can i lol. maybe they’ll give it to me soon that’d make things easier. idk how old im gonna have 2 be to be able 2 have control over my own life lmao
