I'm Julia. I'm 34, a translator and I get easily annoyed by small, inconsequential things. :fingerguns:

I like crafty things, arty things, video game things and more. I hesitate to be more specific because thanks to hyperfixations the Hobby Du Jour switches all the time.

I have a bunch of mental health issues (depression, social anxiety, agoraphobia, newly discovered ADHD and likely ASD).

I'm also fat, fun, fmart (let me have this) and German.

Would it surprise you that the worst person in Are You The One? history is named Devin? 😆

#Inktober Day 19: Acorn

Don't have the creative juice to be clever today - it's just an acorn. 🤷‍♂️

If I ever die in a noteworthy way, I hope my loved ones will make sure that I won't end up on one of those YouTube channels where a voiceover tells my gruelling story while the person is doing some sort of bold eye make-up look.

The Fast and the Furious is a solid 9/10. I will not take questions at this time.

#Inktober Day 18: Night Sky

I was gonna spatter on some stars, but my window of motivation has closed for the day.

I have two socks I'm currently working on: a bed sock and a desk sock. Because let's face it: once I'm sitting I'm not going to get up to get my stuff.

I just accepted the translation for a questionnaire about prenatal care. They are all bullet points with full sentences but the source doesn't have full stops.
So my comment was "These are all full sentences so I think they all should have periods (which is ironic given the topic xD)." :fingerguns:

"We also have "I think my hamster is waxing the floor.""
"Now you're just making things up."
"Ask me what "waxing the floor" means."
"... What is waxing the floor in German?"
" :blobcatgiggle: Bohnern"

We're talking about idioms and how some are very similar in English and German and some make sense in English but are batshit in German.
In the course of this conversation I taught Justin "that's crazy" in German and hearing him say "Ich glaub' mein Schwein pfeift" was ADORABLE!

Who here is working with gouache? Which brand is your favorite?

I need to start working and I can't make myself do it!

If I had to choose what Justin likes about me the most it's definitely that I make him listen to Nu Metal.

Turns out mandrill males have magnificent rumps. Those are some beautiful colors. 😆

I thought these days actors didn't look like high schoolers in these kinds of movies but all the Heathers are at least 45!
