    • Soooo I've been adulting

      1 year ago

      Hello all,


      My posts on here are sporadic at best but I've been missing this lovely community lately and thought I would reappear with a few updates on what I've been up to the past 6 months.


      As the title suggests I've decided to accept that I'm an adult now and I've been adulting..hard. I made a decision that I didn't want to live in the south anymore and had a discussion with my boss on the subject. This discussion resulted in me being able to move back to the Midlands and work from home full time for the same company.


      It's been a fantastic move and because of this I've been able to buy my very own house! I've been having some much fun decorating, gardening and general nesting. My neighbours are fab too. Never in my life did I think I would find a neighbourhood where you are actually friends with your neighbours but, this has happened.


      Working from home is actually going really well. It seems to be quite common around here so there's always people about. I've not lost out on opportunities at work either as last month I was requested on a project that required travel to the Netherlands and I got a promotion which was nice.


      Anyway the reason I'm posting this is because around 3 years ago when. I first joined the community I wasn't having a great time. I'd moved back home after my master's and was feeling the post-uni depression pretty bad. There are a lot of expectations when you leave uni that the real world just doesn't live up to and it can surprise you when that little uni bubble breaks.


      This community really helped me though that and the people I've met on the site I still consider very close friends of mine. They've seen me though the rough patches and cheered me on in my success. I'm very thankful for this community and I hope it's still bringing awesome people together.


      Much love

    • You Tube Channel!

      Hi Guys,


      I've been on about putting together a YouTube Channel since forever but I have finally managed to set it all up and get some little videos ready! The channel content is being put together by myself and _Ilovelamp_ Aka Tom with individual and colab videos (scheduling is proving difficult but we will get there). We have a mix of ideas for the channel and we cant wait to test them out and see what the reactions are.


      The channel is called MillCairn Games. A very unorriginal mix of our two last names but we quite like it. I have attempted a banner:

      MillCairn%2Bbanner.png
      And Logo:

      photo.jpg
      I have to say my photoshopping skills have vastly improved with channel art making and thumbnail editing.


      The first video should be going up tomorrow!! It will be Part 1 of my walkthrough The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.


      header.jpg

      This is a game I absolutley loved playing and just wanted to share with you guys. It's visually stunning, a great story and an incredible atmosphere throughout. I am hoping to get all parts up as quickly as I can as I have finished the playthrough I just have a lot of editing to do.


      Tom is currently working on a Just Cause(ing chaos) let's play, for which he has said he wants his face to be photoshpped onto a cow for the thumbnail (God knows what he's been up to). And I have a Funsize Scares video in Emily wants to Play all ready to upload towards the end of the week/weekend.


      You can find our channel here: MillCairn Games YouTube

      And our twitter handle is: @MillcairnG


      I'm looking forward to this little side project and hope you guys like what we come up with. I will still be working with The Eargasm Podcast and I do believe I need to find the good ending to Uncanny Valley still which will be posted on there once it's together.


      Hope you guys are able to stop by!

    • Quick catch up.

      Hi Guys,

      Once again I have been away from the site for a while. There has been all sorts of things going on lately that have kept me preoccupied and away from the internet.

      1. I went on an incredible tour around Europe. You'd think with living so close to it all I would have been to more places but I've alwys tended to go fruther affield so this year I decided I would go on a tour on my own. I was incredibly luckly to have such an amazing group of people travelling around with me (mostly Australian, a fantastic bunch) and we got to some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The tour went from London into Amsterdam, St Goar, Munich, Hofphgarten, Venice, Rome, Florence (the night out nearly killed me), Lucerne, and Paris.

      I got to experience boat rides through Amsterdam at night followed by a show in the red light district *wink* (Still one of my favourite cities in the world regardless of the red light district), "Wine tasting" (a very lose term for the shoting of wine that actually occured) in a beautiful town in the Rhine Valley, A bike ride around Munich and then Octoberfest, White water rafting in Austria followed by "family night" in a beautiful little town in the Austrian hills, Cocktails and getting lost down the little winding streets if venice, a very messy night in Florence, climbing to the top of Mt Stanzihorn in Switzerland with the worst hangover ever to experience some the the most incredible views I have every seen in my life and finally walking around paris on a beautiful sunny autumn day and a lovely last night with my tour crew. To anyone that has ever even thought about going on a group trip on your own I would fully reccomend it. Best descision I have probably ever made.

      2. On a much sadder note my beautiful, kind and loving dog had to be put down last month. I was incredibly torn up for a while (I still get fairly upset when I talk about it). He ended up getting very sick very very quickly and I didn't get to say my goodbye to the lovely fury guy (I no longer live at home). He had an amazing personality that I will truly miss but he had a lovely life and was spoilt rotten.

      3. My flat is being sold by my landlord (with me still in it) so it has been up in the air for a few months now wheather or not I will be able to stay. The main issue with this is not really that I have to find a new place but I am looking to move jobs and don't really want to get into another 6 month contract if i'm going to have to relocate soon. So everything with work and where i'm living is currently up in the air with me having no idea what the new year will bring. This is both exciting and terrifying as I am looking to change careers. However, I'm going to aire on the side of things being exciting as I am really looking forward to a change.

      4. I mentioned on my last post that I was going to be starting a channel with one of my friends I met through the site. This is still happening but my partner in crime is still wating for his recording equipment to arrive so it's taking longer than we both hoped to get started. We have however got the channel and then name on youtube and once there is content (if you are interested of course) you will find us here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp9hEfWqczcMV9TTf...

      Thats all from me for now.

    • Open bars hurt

      2 years ago

      MillsK

      So last night we had a work function in London at the Sky Louge with an open bar. It ended up being a really fun night being able to mingle with the parent company people and having a lovely friday night out with a bunch of friends.

      My head and generall well being today however is sub-par and I had to go and sort out a bunch of holiday stuff. My day was slightly brightened by the lovely guy serving me in Wittards (A tea shop to anyone that doesn't know). Also, after discussing my feeble flirting attempts with the lovely guy in Wittards to my friend I realised it may have been one of the most middle class things I had ever said.

      Anyway this has been the general ramblings of a horridly hungover katie. Only a week and a half till I go away!! ahh its so exciting!

      Oh also, I have been discussing with a friend of mine for a very long time about starting up our own you tube channel so keep an eye on here for any updates :)

    • Little trips and Big trips

      Firsly, Incredibly jelious of everyone that went to RTX. It looked like so much fun this year! I had actually escaped from the south to the very very northen city of Glasgow. I absolutely fell in love with the place. There was so much to see and do and such a great atmosphere. As all of my trips away from the south it just made me want to move so badly!

      However, I am actually off on a 2 week tour around Europe in September so that is uber exciting! I got all my stuff in teh post for it on friday and now i'm just counting down the days until I head off. It'll be so nice to get a long break away from work. I'm sure I will put up lots and lots of lovely photos when I get back. Well if the photo uploader on the site is fixed by then :P

      Hey there, thanks for the add! I saw your Assassin's Creed WIP cosplay and wow! It's really nice :D it's even better since the hood is red which also is reminiscent of Ruby Rose... That'd be an interesting crossover, now that I think of it...

      • DRosales

        2 years ago

        No problem, friendship is always welcome! :D And I have a good feeling your finished cosplay will be a showstopper, so no worries!

        And thanks, I'm no artist but I try :)

        Hey! No problem. I love your art and thought I'd try to make a new friend. Ah thank you. I had a disaster with it yesterday and burnt a hole in the hood. Hopefully it will be ok with a patch. That is an incredibly interesting crossover.... Go Sir and draw with your arty skills! smiley0.gif
