milesy: Acrylic painting of Kermit the Frog (Default)
[personal profile] milesy posting in [community profile] 2017revival
Name: Milesy

Age: 33

Location: PNW, near that mountain what likes to explode sometimes.

Five Sentences:

  1. I'm a full-time YouTuber and Twitch streamer, and have very little coherent thought left because of it.
  2. I do a lot of cross stitch, as part of the above, and have even less coherent thought left because of it.
  3. I don't have kids, but I do have a husband and a pet shark, which is kind of the same - I'm always yelling at someone to stop beating things up or leaving socks around the house.
  4. I painted the artwork in my icon for a birthday gift for my niece.
  5. I had to learn how to cook because I'm allergic to everything under the sun and don't want to die.
Writing interests: Not so much these days.  Most of my written creativity comes in the form of RP.  I've tried my hand at some original horror, and used to write a LOT of fanfic.

What I write: Not a whole lot.  I wish I had the mental energy to write more, but it's not a hobby that can be multitasked very easily.

Most postings: Whatever, really.  My journal is pretty new.  It was a formality for an RP comm, but I want to actually start using it.  You'll get some random babbling, probably some YouTube videos and pictures of things I make.  Maybe I'll post some fic or something.

More: I was super hardcore active on LJ in the past, but between the numerous takeovers and my fandom of choice at the time getting incredibly toxic, I noped out pretty hard.  I tried Tumblr, but I hate it, so I fell out of fandom and online spaces pretty hard as well.  But I miss the journalling scene, and want to try to get back into it.

i love how your personality is shining through, even on a post like this. i think we'd get along pretty well. i love both youtube and twitch, but because of teaching full time, have become much more of a consumer than a creator, but i still love them both!

i watch a lot of old school youtubers who've kept going [vlogbrothers, graveyardgirl, philip defranco, shay carl, jenna marbles], but gamer-wise, i love all three of the runaway guys [chuggaconroy, protonjon, but especially nintendocaprisun], peanutbuttergamer, stephenplays... that's the main group of channels i look for in my sub boxes daily.

I was looking at your insta and holy crap your cross stitch work is amazing! I do a little embroidery, but mostly freehand sketching type stuff, nothing on your level. I've also just recently gotten into Twitch since I got a PS4 this year, though haven't done much with it yet.

Friends? :)

Maybe someday! The range of game mechanics and skills levels in games has vastly improved in recent years, so you could probably find something you're good at. :) What's your Twitch username btw?

Aw, that stinks. :( I can't do any first person games because they make me motion sick.

Cool, I'm gonna add you on there too, if you don't mind.

Hiya. Subscribing, though I mostly lurk, if that's okay. Haven't posted in, um, two years (when did that happen?) but may again some day, who knows. Me: Sixty, cisfemale, hopelessly straight but not for lack of trying, fannish by nature but currently not about much of anything, currently mostly focused on dogs (puppy!) and Pokemon Go (I am fierce, yo).

Complicated food issues, I know them.... :)

We seem to have different ones though, but I'm curious, do you have an allergy to gluten, or soy, or something else? (at least one of the former two seem to be in everything already...)

Have you had the same problem with organic onions or haven't you tried an onion that's "certified organic" yet?

Peppery things that you list are among the things that I have issues with.

Peppers [bell/cayenne/etc] are a nightshade - do you have problems with other members of that family, such as things with tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, etc?

I asked about the onions (which in my usage, I do mean all allium members - it's just that "onions" are what come to mind the most for a lot of people), because SOME (ok, a LOT of, depending on the area) onions (and other alliums) on the market come from seed companies that wrap the seeds with a neonicotinoid coating - which will run afoul of a nightshade issue. Neonics are forbidden in "certified organic" foods.

We have a few things in common, namely being involved in rping, crafty interests (I mostly crochet but am getting into cross stitch), and I'm also trying to get back into regularly writing a journal because I've been missing it. I've added you and if you feel like adding me back, great but no worries if you don't :)

No worries :)

I mostly rp on jcink forums these days though in the past I use to play on livejournal & insanejournal. Recently had a brief try at twitter as one of partners is into it but it was not for me.

I know! I'm sad journal based rping isn't as active as it use to be. I mean, not counting tumblr which is also journal based but for me it's just not the same. I've looked around on DW but haven't seen much activity.

I've added you, if that's alright.
