[P.] Hi! First of all, sympathies from a fellow inhabitant of the "eaten alive by college" corner. I'm sorry to hear that the staff have been unhelpful - I agree, that sort of thing sounds like... their sort of thing to look up, less yours. :/ I/we ended up not going back to college, so I'm not sure how much advice I can give you. I can remember some things we did that weren't the best and probably contributed to our severe downward spiral. The big one was isolation - not asking for help, shutting ourselves in, basically succumbing to this awful chain-reaction where we'd be too anxious to go out for food or class, starvation/being behind on classwork worsening our mental state, not going out again, etc. You get the picture. I'm not sure how good your college is about mental health, especially if their academic staff is unhelpful, but even if it's non-staff stuff like keeping up with therapy and meeting other students struggling with mental health issues, that can help a LOT. And it sounds trite, but don't underestimate the value of a full night's sleep and regular meals. It's so easy to let them slip when you're doing poorly, but that's the time you'll need them most. Beyond that, I'm not sure if this is a viable option for your field? But there's alternatives to college, depending on what you're trying to get into. We were pursuing computer science, so instead of going back to college, we went to a software engineering bootcamp, which turned out to be both more affordable and a lot easier on our brain. It worked out - we got hired into a well-paying programming job last year. If you're also in programming and at all interested in taking that route, I'll be glad to give you pointers. It can be pretty tough to make a Non-Traditional Background(tm) work, but it's definitely doable.
[P.] Crosspost from here: More seriously, though, I do see a potential loophole that can be abused via multi-accounting - get a dump alt to unmake on with Kith that you don't care about raising, ship all your scrap clothes over there, and go to town, transferring the results back to your main. I'm guessing this falls under the "unfairly favor the user over singular accounts" clause, but just in case, maybe it's worth explicitly stating alongside the other forbidden examples?
[P.] yeah, whatever.

[P.] I'd thought about putting 2020 eyelets in the lab to continue the tradition, but alas, we didn't have an unlimited shop timer event this new year. Still, I'm very intrigued to see what'll come of this!
Note: If you send us a message thanking us for wishlist items and we don't reply, we promise we're not ignoring you! Many days we are just tired and unable to words, but we quietly appreciate all of your messages regardless.

~ About ~
Actually not a single otter, but a trenchcoat filled with otters. More about that here, and more about us here! If you're wondering about the little bold letters in brackets, now you know. ;)
Neurodivergent, Asian-American, bodily early 20s, internally... it depends. Queer as heck and proud of it. Chronically ill, abuse survivors, rising from the ashes. A few of us are perpetually cynical about the state of the world and fully convinced that humanity's going to do itself in, but we'll be damned if we don't try our best anyway.
Sometimes we do art. Someday we'll have an art blog that's actually up-to-date.
We actually have several TW accounts! Most of them are inactive aside from this one, though. The main one would be Phosphor's, which he uses for hosting giveaways.
We were the inspiration for the Veilious kith! They are such good blanket children and we love them very much. (And yes, we do indeed occasionally hand out charms for them - if you want a shot at one, put one in your wishlist and be sure to set yourself to appear in the Users Online list. Please don't ask us directly for one, though, it creates an obligation that's uncomfy for us. ;v;)
And yes, we were also consultants for RiGBy!
We also admin, edit, and write for the unofficial Tattered Weave wiki. We haven't been so active there recently due to life, but you can provide feedback here and read various lore fragments we've gathered here! A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO'S CONTRIBUTED!!!
