Hihi! My first paycheck from my new job came in and I am happy to say that I immediately spent a little less than half of it on my addiction + a lego set for my partner lol!

I started my CNA training in January, ended in February, and got a job late march making $15 an hour USD, I love my job though I'm practically just a professional asswiper, I'm starting LPN school in June, (hopefully ;;) which will only be a year long, then I will be able to get my RN online! I'm fairly lucky right now as my old job just let a ton of people go, and I would've been on the list since my boss hated me lol. I'm still waiting for my check to come from the IRS, I hadn't filed my taxes yet since another old job won't give me my W-2 at the moment, hopefully I'll have this sorted out soon and be able to get a refund sooner.

I was able to finally pick up a few figures from my wishlist, one of which was a holy grail, at amazing prices!

ITEM #106434
ITEM #153002
These were both items that I have been looking for at a good price for a while! I really want to collect the entire Sega minifigure series! As well as the alphamax Miku being super cute and one I've wanted since starting my collection!

And my holy grail being:
ITEM #347035
The Kanato Sakamaki exclusive blood version figure! I really love yanderes ;; and dumb otome games so it made sense for me to get him ! I've been looking for him since probably July of last year, and honestly have just forgotten to check on his page for months because I felt like I'd never get him at a decent price. Luckily for me Jfigure had him in an A/A condition for $101 USD, and I decided to pick him up as a splurge for myself.

I also ended up cancelling my 2 May preorders, simply because I was not in love with the figures anymore and for the price of $130 each not including shipping, and the base not being anything extraordinary, I just decided to bite the aftermarket prices on them and hopefully find the two used at a decent price, I've been cleaning out my wishlist for a while and just decided that having them wasn't worth it with the way my collection is going. As much as I love the characters (for those interested it was the GSC Rin and Len F2nd figures that I cancelled) I'm just no interested in the outfits or how bland the figures look anymore ; w ; to me they look like over glorified prize figures and I can't see the aftermarket being bad for them. All my other preorders I'm still in love with, and it's unlikely I'll cancel them at this time, my next preorder is set for July and I'm very excited for her; (Magical Mirai Miku!).

I'm also looking into several merchandise lots on ebay at the moment, some of them have rare pins in them for a really good price having over 70+ can badges/rubberstraps for a little under $100, they've been sitting there tantalizing me for far to long for me to not get them at this point, but I'm being able to refrain myself from making anymore purchases until I get my second check and see how much rent will take out from them (I'll likely have a few hundred left over and I'm set on food for quite a while!).

On a more personal note; I've been practicing self care recently! I've been washing my face more often, and trying to work out for at least 30 minutes a day on my days off (I'm constantly moving on my days on shift lol) I've been making a lot more healthy food recently, using fresh greens and other such ways, I really want to loose some pounds to be more healthy and fit, my stomach bulges a bit and it makes me uncomfortable, all I have going on is some muscle definition in my legs and arms, but other than that I'm overweight (not obese luckily, but I don't believe I'm in a healthy range.) I've been like this since I was a kid, so part of it could be genetics since I was a very active kid (played volleyball up until my junior year), so this just means I have to put in some extra work in order to try and get the fat off. I'm lucky my weight has never spiraled out of control.

For anyone that read this far I thank you! Rambling on here makes me feel better about things and the current state of my life, I'm finally starting to get some upwards momentum and I'm really lucky to be able to make the income I do right now. I'm also really lucky to have such a supportive partner through it all!

A question for all of you: What have you been doing in quarentine to keep yourself occupied (assuming you work from home or are stuck home); for myself I've been playing a lot of League of Legends, Taiko, and Animal Crossing on my days off! I've also been watching a lot of my back catalogued Anime/movies! I finally watched FMA: Brotherhood and I'm rewatching Sailor Moon, Tokyo Mew Mew, Shugo Chara, and Inuyasha at the moment!

SebastianLoverHace 3 meses#77621113Congrats on your new job! I remember just starting out, and it felt like I was going absolutely nowhere. Then I got my current job and everything started to click. You just need that first success to get the ball rolling. And professional asswiper, lol.
Ironically I go outside more now that I'm home than I did when I commuted. I guess the 5 minutes on the train platform and 15 minutes at the bus stop fulfilled my outdoors needs lol. I've gotten into Animal Crossing too. I took that Easter, I mean Bunny Day event way too seriously; I legitimately got super angry with it. I completed every DIY and got all the outfits including the bonus party dress and hat. I can't believe how proud I am of that lol. I've also used the chance to watch more anime. I completed Dr. Stone and am now watching Re Zero and Overlord both of which I like way more than I was expecting. And yay fellow magical girl fan! Mew Ichigo is a grail of mine. One day she'll be mine.
Otome games huh? I think I'll have to check those out. That Diabolik Lovers figure looks great. I guess you've just given me a new rabbit hole to fall down.


That Mew Ichigo figure is such a dream, I found one on Ebay recently and when my check comes in from the coronavirus releif fund I think I might get her. She's such a hard find, however I'd also really like to have the Miku Dolfie, I'll only allow myself to get one because I don't want to spend a ton of money, but I really want them both lol. ; w ;

Cupcakez89Hace 3 meses#77621082Congrats on getting your CNA license! I just received mine last fall. This quarantine has hit us all hard, but listening to podcast(whimsically volatile and true crime) have helped me a bit, as well as yard cleanup and playing animal crossing as well! Good luck on your grail search btw!

Aaa thank you <3, this quarentine has been really hard lol, everything has been much more meticulous in protocol, and now we aren't even allowed to wear our own scrubs from the outside world ; w ;

LittlePiscesHace 3 meses#77621225Great to hear you're doing good! My job is considered essential, but I am doing artsy stuff whenever I'm not busy. Getting into Chinese anime like this one I am currently watching. (ENTRY #132438)

Nice! I really need to knock a few new ones off of my watch list rather than rewatching old favorites but I can't help myself lol.

4catdoormanHace 3 meses#77640189Happy for you that you have a life plan and everything is working out in that regard. Being a retired old minch I'm still doing what I was doing before the covid19 self-imposed lockdown: reducing via selling my estate online while I'm still around so my wife won't have to should I "go first".
Since the pandemic sales on eBay have become amazingly brisk in PVC and I'm both pleasantly amazed & surprised. Guessing it's because of national cons being cancelled indefinitely, Japan orders becoming near frozen account JapanPost hiatus. What you see on my sale site you will get sooner rather than later.
Getting future releases from Japan has become problematic as I'm sure you are aware. I've cancelled over 50% of my POs and the overseas vendors were actually very cooperative allowing that. Unfortunately I have 1-2 figures presently in quasi-purgatory overseas awaiting an end to the lockdown since JapanPost has stopped shipments to USA as of 4-16. I can't expect a refund since I prepaid past the 6 months my cc allows for such requests so I'll have to rely on the integrity of the vendor(s).


I have one figure I've ordered from Jfigure that I paid for the quickest shipping on, since SAL is temporarily suspended and I'm very excited to get it lol. I don't think at the moment I'm going to cancel anymore preorders, maybe Racing Miku 2019 but that release date is a while down the line.

Also the Ebay listings right now are crazy! I got the other two in the article from Ebay for less than $70 including shipping, which was surprising to me since I've seen Alphamax Miku go for up to $90, I'm assuming it's because her box has a little wear and tear to it that is why she went for $45, but still I thought it was a great price and jumped on the chance to get her lol. I've been periodically checking Ebay because a lot of my saved sellers are listing things like crazy, they're all small businesses and I really want to help support them and fuel my addiction lmao =w=.

moonstarfcHace 3 meses#77621148Good luck! RN school is unexpectedly tough. Honestly, I was always a straight A student until I went into my BSN program. The online quizzes/assessments they make you do are really tough (they're preparing you for NCLEX).
Any particular area of nursing you're interested in? I'm a psych nurse. Although, I didn't know much about that field until I did my psych clinicals.
I was a CNA too and I worked in a nursing home. Even being an RN now I feel like I'm just as busy every day.


I currently work in a nursing home at the moment, once I get my RN I want to move to the hospital! I really want to be in the surgery section as after I have my RN I'm immediately applying for med school to become a surgeon while working part time as a nurse on the side. I'd also be happy with ER or ICU though, maybe mother baby. I was lucky enough to find a LPN program that doesn't require any college experience since it's a trade, and then the 'degree' I get is accepted to another university that is all online and will transfer to my state : )

As a surgeon though I want to specialize in reconstructive surgery/trans surgery (giving people the parts they want, taking off breasts either for dysphoria reasons or cancer reasons, fixing people back up after bad accidents/explosions, ect. ) It's the area I'm most interested in at the moment, but I'll have to wait for med school to see if that's really the path I want to go.
