    Since you like history, I thought I would share this neat short video. It's only a couple minutes.

    Would you consider yourself an active trader in Pokemon? I'm thinking of people to giveaway 99% of my Pokemon in Pokemon Home, and I remember when you helped me so much that one day. I just don't want the burden of having 45 boxes of 'mons.

    This is RedBalloon btw. I know, new username. But I like this name better.

    Is there a way to just gift you the 'mons on home without anything in return? Let me know before July 18th if interested (cause that's when my Pokemon Home subscription expires).

    Coincidently, I looked at INFP and felt almost equally leaned towards it. Yet can't relate to many of the hobbies you listed. I struggle with stuff like poetry and creative writing. It definitely requires a deal of self expression. I can see that through the role-playing forum on here. I'm not into participating, but it's nice checking it out.

    It's been an okay week. I think the last few months have been the first time I've ever felt loneliness. Have used this VM system on Pokecommunity as a crutch since there hasn't really been anyone I can converse with. I even asked to rejoin the social media team. I didn't get a response. I did some self reflection, I think it was more craving to be a part of something rather than actually being interested in the position. I don't want it much anymore. (sounds indecisive, but hey).

    I have a birthday in 2 weeks. It'll at least be nice, hopefully.

    I took the Myer Briggs test you mentioned a long time back. It gave me ISFP.

    It definitely nailed me on the strengths and weaknesses part. "Overly Competitive" "Fluctuating Self-Esteem" "Sensitive to Others" all described things with scary accuracy.

    I forgot to mention it, but I was in Philadelphia. It was fun, saw the Liberty Bell and went to a zoo. (admittedly wasn't the best zoo, habitats seemed a bit lacking for the animals and some of them didn't look happy).

    uh also i thought about it and hopefully I don't talk too much. I don't need a response for everything, though I could cut back.

    Wanted to see the Betsy Ross house, but not everything can be done in one trip.

    A little more activity would be nice, but forums in general aren't getting quite the levels of activity that they used to (though the fact that PC is still going decently well despite that says something). So things are more or less alright.

    Of course I've missed you! ♥♥ Glad to finally hear back. I know how busy life tends to be, though, so it's no problem if it takes you a while to reply (plus, you replied with a lot, so how can I be mad? :P)

    Thank you, thank you, you know I love being an edgelord lmao

    Yeah, we have high hopes for Apollo and Hades! I will be sure to give you an update on them when we see the results.

    Aww, yeah that would've been really cool for Prince. It's great enrichment for pups, too, to be one of those support dogs. They go through rough training to be calm and get lots of pettings and love and affection for the rest of their lives, lmao. Ain't that the life. Prince would've been a great candidate! But the old boy is loving his life already and is clearly well cared for. Love the image of that big white puff ball just chilling under a tree in a beautiful park.

    Ooh that commission sounds really awesome! Congratulations!! Try not to burn yourself out, though. It's a pretty tough job you have there. 20 dolls? Wow.

    Aw, that is wonderful to hear about your mom! My grandmother was very similar. When I first went vegan, it was a lot of eye-rolls and dismissing me and asking me if I was "SURE" I didn't want [insert meat dish here]. It's just very natural for people to act like that. Doesn't mean they're a bad person or that they won't come around (and you are even luckier that your mom doesn't mind almond milk in her coffee or vegan dishes every now and then from you), but people just think it's a phase or you're not very serious about it. But when you show that it's not a phase and you are serious, plenty of people will not mind at all, and will even somewhat join you!

    My grandmother was also the type to forget things like eggs and cheese and milk, but she was always apologetic about asking if I wanted any yogurt or cheese on my spaghetti or what have you. My mom was always the exact opposite. The second I told her I wanted to go from vegetarian to vegan, she was all over it, lmao. She loves making vegan dishes for me and my husband so I can relax instead of cook, or for all 3 (sometimes 4 if we get the rare time my brother joins) of us to enjoy a family night.

    As someone who has been 10 years vegan, it becomes so natural to me that I sometimes "forget" why I'm doing it. Not that it makes me falter, but sometimes I remember the exploitation and horrible ways we treat animals, and it makes me sad. Then I'm like, "ohhh yeah that's why I haven't eaten any animal products in 10 years." So when you put it the way you do, it makes me feel good about my choices as well.

    Omggg plum trees? ♥ That sounds absolutely lovely. And I've never heard of mitsuba! It would be cool to hear how they taste, and maybe I'll get some for myself. Over here? I'm excited to see our incredible burst of mint. We had a literal hedge about 2 feet off the ground of sweet mint, peppermint, and spearmint. It smelled soooo good, and they were right next to the lavender so the bees and butterflies were all over them, making them healthy and strong. It's my favorite little corner of our garden. ♥ Unfortunately, with Caesar here, it might be difficult for us to take care of our garden this year. Next year might go better since he'll be a bit older and won't need such intense 24/7 supervision. It'll just be slightly less intense 24/7 supervision next year :P

    I planned on watching the movie, but decided it would be more fun watching the play not knowing the events. What kind of shows do you prefer? I thought of recommendations, but realized it wouldn't make sense as we likely enjoy completely different things.

    Thank you for sharing. A long time ago when we conversed on Discord, you described your family as bohemian and arsty. So this is a different perspective. I can relate to the government assistance. We often used food stamps and I was on a free lunch program at school. Financial difficulties can definitely make school experiences difficult. I've never been the most popular person anyways, nothing to do with money. I'm more on the quiet side, and don't concern myself too much with fitting in. I guess loner is a term for it, and that's okay. I'm pretty happy.

    I love history too. For me I think it's the fascination of knowing everything that happened before I existed. I would go with the theory of pressure. You see a bunch of others making accusations of being witches, it's difficult to be the one to stand up for them. They could easily be turned on and hung at a stake. You see this happening today in Russia. There is no way every oligarch or member of the Kremlin agrees with what Putin is doing in Ukraine. But what happens in that situation if you stand up for justice and nobody else does? He will have you killed.

    I wish the best to your mother. I'm sorry she experienced such things, and if I recall correctly you've posted before about her struggling health. I really do hope the best for you guys.

    Nice talking to you - as always.

    Ahh sorry, I just now checked my messages!!

    Thank you for the help Sam ;w; But in my case it seems to be perioral dermatitis which my doctor suspects could have been triggered by the change in climate + skincare products, or overuse of skincare products altogether.. so I'm not sure how much I want to layer on my face. Been washing with just water for a while and not putting anything on it. It seemed to be getting better slowly (especially since I used a prescription cream and antibiotics) but then a few days ago I was stupid and opened my mouth a little bit too wide for too long, which damaged the already sensitive skin around my mouth lol. Now the redness is a bit bigger again. I'm just putting a cream on that I know I've been ok with before for antiredness and hope it heals soon >_>

    Oh it was really fun. I had never even seen the Lion King movie, nor most Disney movies honestly. The theatre was like a stadium and I found it really captivating. Disney animations are something I need to acquaint myself with.

    Ah to be honest, I just enjoy doing anything. I grew up rather impoverished. In a small decaying house, then our dad passed and it made things worse. We once lost our running water for a month, another time our kitchen flooded and we could never afford to fix it. So as you could imagine doing fun things was more of a rarity. Our uncle married in (stock holder/legislative administrator) and purchased us a nicer home and always takes us to do fun things. Sometimes I do feel awkward, like in fancy diners because at heart I don't feel like I belong.

    That was actually much of my story, I don't think I had ever even shared.

    The classes are always okay. Sometimes I crash out and feel get bursts of demotivation. Otherwise it's okay, thanks for asking. I haven't seen the Crucible but I appreciate the recommendation and will always check out things recommended.

    I don't mean this as rude, but what in particular do you find interesting when it comes to the Witch Trials? Is it the psychology, the time period, or a morbid curiosity? You don't have to answer of course if it's not a comfortable question.

    ‘Twas not the work of a fairy but merely a flip of the coin, my dear! Well, maybe there was a little bit of fairy love. I am very happy I could deliver a VPP as golden as you are. (´,,•ω•,,)♡

    Super exciting, i've never actually been to one.

    Aw, thank you! I've been very into dark cottagecore/dark academia recently and have been slowly changing my profiles around social media to reflect that.

    Everything is going fairly well here. The hubby and I have had some rough patches, as one might expect from a new baby. Therapy brought out one really big issue for us that we're trying to work through now and I think we're making good progress. Caesar is a very well-mannered and calm baby who really only gets fussy when he's tired. And Apollo and Hades are gonna be set up with a really high-end boarding school that trains police dogs, since my mom came into some money recently. We really do need to set up a time to get that dang Skiddo!

    How are things on your end? How's the doll-making going, and your lovely Prince? Been able to make any headway with your mom about you trying veganism? And I bet neither of us can wait until spring finally hits and our gardens grow back in!
