  1. When the pandemic started and we went on lockdown (where I live it was around the middle of March 2020), I was so happy, months went by and June 2020 came in and the lockdown ended, then I was on summer vacations and I still was somewhat happy, but idk, in september school has started and slowly I've been feeling more and more unmotivated. I stopped most of my hobbies around summer or the beginning of the school year, I feel unmotivated even for things like that (don't get me wrong, I still enjoy them), but idk, since the pandemic has started I have felt more and more tired and unmotivated for anything, obligations or not. And this actually drives me mad, once every few days I feel sad bc I am a Junior in highschool, and here in Spain the junior and senior years are the ones which determine your future (refering to university and so on) and my marks have been declining. I was never the A+ student, but I was the one who most of the time had Bs, B+, A-, maybe an A+ here and there but rarely. Now most of my marks are like C or D, maybe a few Bs and As, but most of them are Cs or whatever (I don't really understand the american grading system lol) and I feel like a failure, I feel like I'm wasting my life and my relatives think that I don't want to study at all anymore, which isn't the case btw. I don't know if I have explained my self, but I've more unstable that usual this last I would say 6 months, and I have stopped doing so many hobbies, yet alone obligations and so many people that know me they don't really understand what is hapenning with me and I feel that I'm not going to enter into the careers that I want to just because I don't have good marks in junior and senior year and idk. I may also add that I'm always procrastinating (before the pandemic I did too but now I procrastinate sooooo much more) and the day after I feel so bad because I feel that I could have studied or something. Idk there are just so many things to take in to account, I wanna know if somebody has been in a similar situation and what they have done to cope with it.
  2. I had to secretly get a therapist to do an online session later today with me because of my depression and my abusive toxic mum. Mum this morning threw a hissy fit because I did not put on the TV for her to watch my sister's programme and even wants my sister to seize my laptop again as punishment forgetting that I am 29. I tried to defend myself but she abused the hell out of me and even said that my other sister in England trying to help me launch a writing career should go find someone else as I am incompetent and useless. I cried a lot yesterday and cried today. People will defend this woman because of her public facade but if only they knew what kind of person she truly is. She definitely does not want me to have a job and one of my uncles re-echoed her thoughts saying that my job is to take care of mum. Mum is going to be 70. She keeps lying about health problems that she brought upon herself. She lies against the staff especially the poor housegirl. I keep thinking of committing suicide because I can't live like this anymore. This woman and my older sister have been bullying me for years. I keep on taking **** because I don't know what to do. My boyfriend was banned from seeing me because in mum's words, "No one comes between me and my daughter." She even lied against one of my sister's staff claiming that the girl bullied me whereas she is the true bully. I told another one of my uncles but I doubt he did anything. I am basically trapped and afraid of everyone.
  3. one of my ex professors (who will turn 51 this year) and me (i'll turn 28 at the end of the year) were super close from 2018 until july last year to the point ive dedicated him my graduate thesis and even made him a second author of a fantasy novel i was later forced to take down of amazon (he hasnt written a single word of it) He made me make a fake fb account and I added all his colleagues and I was mailing him all the embarrassing pics of them so he can use them against them. He made me took pics of myself for 4chan so they archive a topic i made against a person he wanted to get rid off. he even made me write him a full doctorate. i wrote him a full doctorate in economics and ofc he never told me the date of his dissertation. probably of fear i would dox him or something. idk. he made me leak private pics on 4chan even tho i got my laptop hacked. then when i self published a book, he was forcing me to somehow sell 500 000 euros of royalties in less than 3 months or he will be forced to move to asia because he cant live here, he doesnt have money to do so. i begged people to buy the book and i was able to sell up to 4 copies a day but that wasnt enough for him and he would yell in caps in texts everyday how- this isnt working, i let him down as usual etc. he would send a horrible text then when i would read it on whatsap, he would delete it so i couldnt even screenshot them he wanted to know who am i friends with and why and what we talk about. he knew all my contacts. to make things worse, a girl on twitter offered to make a better copy (design wise) for the book but when she saw how this guy is acting towards me in our whatsap group, she deleted the promo site for the book and started following all the people i follow. she would text her at least 50 messages per hour and she would go insane when i turned off my wi fi when i wanted to go to sleep. she would immediately send me texts how im her only reason she is still alive, how i am her fairy sister and she will take sleeping pills if i ever leave her. i havent responded to her for 21 hours straight and she got so furious she blocked me and my ex professor got so angry- blamed it all on me, said she isnt that bad and that i lost a great opportunity for a free design. she tried to log in onto my amazon page and luckily i got a notification of unusual activity. i immediately called the police and amazon to take the book down and shut down all the accounts. somehow, she was able to sell the story to amazon she is me and she wants the account and book back. when it got back, she spammed the book with 1 and 2 star reviews and made the price double. again, i was somehow managed to take it down but then the professor went on a whole roll to contact all my contacts and completely slam me- told them the worst stories about me...to the point today my friend i was friends with for around 20 yrs told me he was contacted about me and told me to stay away from him and his family. about 15 people irl blocked me and told me the same and i was forced to shut down everything and go into a hiding mode. at this point, i am thinking of even changing both my name and surname and even move to another country when the lockdown is over. idk what he leaked or something but people avoid me like a plaque. all i have is my 70 yr old dad and he blames me for everything that happened but he knows i'm forced to move as far as possible and change my name or surname. my life is a living hell. 2 complete lunatics are up my *** and idk what to do. at first, i was having nightmares. i was dreaming im trapped by huge snakes who are biting me over and over. then i would get waken up by hearing the whatsapp sound u get when u get message. i would dream im getting ****loads of pop ups and i cant block them. months passed and i still turn off my mobile wi fi before i go to bed. today when a friend told me to stay away from him and his family i went to hide and i cried but my nose started bleeding. i hasnt stopped so i ended up on ENT. they filled my nose but i can feel it when it bleeds (still). my blood pressure got lower but im more concerned this 2 lunatics are on a roll to make my life a complete hell and i know their biggest wish is to tap dance on my grave. unfortunately. so be careful who you let in ur life. never fully trust anyone. some people are capable and smart enough to make ur life a complete hell and that will ruin ur psyche and ur health. be careful pls. dont end up like me.
  4. I have been suffering from ptsd for 3 years now after a cancer surgery. Some days are a struggle to deal with and feels hopeless at times. Anyone else going through this?
  5. So, this video was recommended to me on YouTube and I found it to be an amazing, eye opening analysis. Do you feel like this analysis describes you? I honestly identify with a some of this and I am thankful to have seen this.
  6. i am so exhausted with my anxiety. its becoming a daily battle. i go through things in my head again and again. i think im a bad person. i think im dangerous. all of theese thoughts i no are not true but i feel it. i cry almost every day. i have not left my house. i just want to feel better
  7. How is everyone doing during this crazy Quarantine life we have been living? I have been pretty good today, but some days I have had incredibly bad anxiety. Cold sweats, being simultaneously too hot and too cold. My mind would run wild and sabotage my sleep. I’ve never wanted to consider medication out of fear of addiction, which is something I have battled in the past. It got so bad though that I was about to check myself in somewhere. The only thing I found solace in was THC/CBD Tincture. It’s not to get high off of, but without it I literally start shaking because my nerves are basically shot. And the scary thing is, absolutely nothing is “wrong”, I’m safe, I have a place to live, some money saved in the bank, bills paid, food, entertainment (Netflix, Hulu etc), but I would literally start going crazy almost daily for about a month until very recently when I started taking Tincture. People say it’s the planets moving into retrograde. People say it’s because I’m a ♋️ cancer and I’m highly emotional. Some say it’s coming into my “powers” of being an empath, especially with everything going on in the world it’s like.... overload. I just wanted to check in with you all, I hope nobody is feeling how I can get to feeling lately, but if you are I hope you find SOME kind of comfort from knowing you aren’t alone. ❤️ I have been watching Haters back Off with Miranda Sings on Netflix. Absolutely ridiculous, but ridiculously funny. It definitely helped pull me out of a funk if you need something light and funny to watch. The opening scenes should be enough to put a smile on your face. I’ve started to crochet again, something simple to quickly occupy my mind. Headphones really help a lot! They fill your head with sound, which can drown out a lot of the negativity your brain might be trying to throw at you, a couple of my favorite podcasts are What’s The T with Rupaul and Michelle Visage. Over 200 episodes, great witty banter, great guests, great advice. Another is Boulet Brothers Creatures of the Night, Drag, Filth, Horror, Glamour.... the fabulous Swanthula and Dracmorda Boulet bring true horror stories from our history, movie reviews and fun guests, it’s a new one, so there are only a few episodes so far, but its something you can keep up with from the start! What are you doing to stay sane? Any advice for me? Do you need any advice? Let’s all work on being more kind to one another, that’s something the world is lacking.
  8. My problem is not unique. It's actually very common, so I've decided to ask my fellow exhalers for some advice. It's about freaking anxiety. I'm having a job interview tomorrow and my mind just can't rest. I've been having this extreme tachycardia lately and my anxiety has reached a toll on me. I've been experiencing my anxiety with physical symptoms, eg pain in the abdomen, heart race, even nausea and it's unbearable. So, I wanna ask you guys how you deal with such issues and symptoms. Thanks in advance.
  9. Today hasn't been my day at all. Someone honked their horn at me for no particular reason when I was trying to get to the bank, and get some money out for bills, my mom was asking me for money, and annoying me about it (asked me for $150 first, asked me for $200 the next time, told my dad I was sending her $300 after that, and then asked me for $70 for her phone bill, and medicines), so I'm just stressed, and needed to vent. I feel like I'm being taken advantage of, and I don't like it at all.
  10. So I've recently been diagnosed with a unspecified mood disorder, my therapist think i suffer with bipolar ii, but i am going in for a second opinion per her recommendation. i've always know my moods were not normal, people seems to just have better coping skills than i ever have had. i have stints of high confidence and everything is fine, even great! then i crash, and it's hard to even exist. i isolate myself from the ones i love, avoid social interactions, and physically can't get myself to do basic tasks in terms of self care or daily tasks. simple tasks at home and work seem impossible, i hide it well, but i suffer immensely and always have. i am also trans, and am medically transitioning, so i am sure that affects my moods as well. i am trying to learn to cope with my traumas, my mood disorder, and being trans where, let's face it, i am constantly a walking controversial topic. i am grateful i am almost fully passing, and as awful as that sounds, it makes transitioning easier in some aspects. though i've started to get unwanted attention from men, but i digress. another issue for another time, lol. the reason i'm posting this is not only to vent, but to get advice from others who suffer with similar/the same thing. the thought of medication relieves me, but also scares me... i am afraid of not being myself, turning numb like i was before transitioning. are there any tips or advice anyone can offer? i guess i'm looking for some online reassurance. i know this is a good thing logically, but the stigma that comes with these things scare me. i want to be healthy, happy, and functioning... all in all, i just want a brighter future.
  11. i will turn 28 this year and ive never had a relationship of any kind. never been kissed, never kissed anybody. never went on a date, never been asked on one too. ive never had a relationship. i dont have a need to be in one and stuff but considering my age and everything i feel...abnormal. ive never even kissed anyone. makes me kinda feel like a freak. ofc i havent told that to anyone irl cuz... i know its super wierd and most people at least kissed somebody at my age. i kinda wish i can kiss someone i somewhat like so i'm ''done'' with the thought of me being super wierd goes away. why im this way? idk. ive been struggling with depression most of my life and i tend to stay away from people. ive been bullied alot for my looks so i just... lost hope. i did like some guys in my life so i guess i am romantic but ****ual?
  12. It has been proven in scientific studies that reflecting on things you're grateful for can help safeguard your mental health and can keep you happier. Amid such a weird, uncertain time, I thought it'd be a good idea for us to share something we're thankful for. I'll start: Today, I'm grateful that I can exercise, stay active, and enjoy the outdoors every day. What are you grateful for?
  13. Hello fellow Exhale humans, not sure if anyone will read this or have any interest since it's not about any of our pop stars but I wanted to tell you something. Sometimes we are surrounded by people in our family that DON'T BELIEVE IN US and think that our artistry, expression, YouTube channel (in my case) are just a waste of time cause they don't bring us money right away and so that's not something we should waste our time on. Unfortunately, I am staying at my aunt's place in Germany and can't go anywhere else due to the situation which we all very well know... It's not easy listening to all those comments like: you should do something that you can make money with, or something that could help others without considering the fact that YouTube for example helps a lot of people every day with various tutorials, but also in their mental health struggle or just being entertained in these challenging times. Like this, I have to be my own best friend aka supporter and push forward. Yes, she is right, I am not making any money with my videos since I just started a couple of months ago but I am having a lot of fun filming and hopefully entertaining people who watch them. Ok, I don't want to bore you with a novel of a text, I just wanted to let you know that I BELIEVE IN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. 💖 I truly believe this community is amazing and very entertaining so I have to thank you for making my life more colorful with your hilarious comments to different topics and if some people in your life doubt you, or simply don't believe in your visions, there are others who will. Have a great weekend fabulous humans 🙏🏽
  14. Hey guys, I hope you all are doing fine during this strange period we're experiencing. With the lockdown, many issues come out, from our most inner place. Here, in Spain, we're been like 52 days at home and it's overhelming. I've had an eating disorder for years and besides I'm in a good place and doing fine, I was worried about this period and the way it could affect me and my anxiety. Luckily, I've dealt with it in a very positive way. Nowadays, I'm a woman who's focused on improving my health and life. In the past, I was just focused on hating on me, blaming myself for stupid things, creating new insecurities everyday. I could never win. Internet is a very dark place for people with eating disorders and I don't know if any of you are suffering them but I wanted to tell you that you're not alone and it's possible to get out of the dark circle, and to 'put that witch' to sleep. I mean, I don't know if it might help you but... I just wanted to. I've been woking out at home, eating healthy but focusing your mind on positive things is key. Learning something new every day or week, trying new stuff is great. We're going to be fine and we will hug each other soon. As soon as posible. I wish you all the health for you and your families. We could take this space to share our experiences and tips to focus our mind on good stuff.
  15. We all have a death sentence since the day we born. What are you thoughs about this? Do you find it weird that you are gonna die? Me: I do. I'm 23 and just lossed my grandpa and my aunt a couple weeks ago and it's really frightening to me to "ceasing to exist", mainly because all I know is "existing". I'm not religious, and I don't know about an afterlife (doesn't make much sense to me), although I've been researching and till today it is not cientifically proved that the consciousness comes from the brain 100%. Give me your thoughs, babes.
  16. Panic attacks feels horrible and the worst party is, I just really have to endure the pain and the overall awful feeling till it subsides in a few hours. I tried telling it to my family and relatives but they just brushed me off and invalidated me seeking for help and told me I'm just being a drama queen. How do you guys handle it? Some tips from you guys would be really helpful thank you so much
  17. so its the fourth day without smoking i always fail it when i try to stop it but here we go it will probably last 15-20 days anyone has tips? im exercising everyday to deal with the anxiety of no nicotine and i know it makes me feel extra hungry so i have to watch it or i will be phat
  18. It’s been an interesting year to say in the least. I thought it’d be good to have a bit of a check in with everyone. How are you doing? What’s going on in your life? What’s been keeping you busy? What are you looking forward to? What’s stressing you out?
  19. Justin Bieber came to wife Hailey Baldwin's defense after a Jelena (Selena + Justin) fan demanded others "go after" Hailey because Jelena remains supreme. Bieber has done a lot of questionable stuff in the past, but his response here deserves props. I love it. Feels very mature. I would've personally left out the "sad excuse of a human" part but the rest is spot on. How do you feel like the Biebs handled this, Exhale? Hailey also chimed in:
  20. Hey Exhale! I recorded a motivational speech because I've noticed a lot of people in my life and online who are going through a tough time. Hoping my two cents can lift some spirits. It'd be GREATLY appreciated if you gave it a watch and also left comments on here AND especially on the video. The more engagement BreatheHeavy's YouTube channel gets, the bigger it'll become! I'd really love to be a force on YouTube. It'll also help grow Exhale which is ultimately one of my main goals (along with helping people!). The niche of this video is for entrepreneurs or people looking to start their own business, but honestly the advice can be applied to any area of your life. I open up about the challenges I've faced with running BreatheHeavy - namely when I decided to leave my job in marketing in 2012 to pursue BH full-time. These last eight years have been HARD, but REWARDING. I've learned so much, and I want to share my experiences with you. I know my energy in this video is like but I hope it resonates with you. Let me know what you think guys Related:
  21. How this forum and moderators try to advocate for mental health when a moderator made fun of my mental health issues and told me to go die. Now she is in charge of moderating and punishes me for talking about my real life experience. Like you thought it was cool when you said it like a few months ago and never apologized and now she is in charge of what I say? Jordan trusts her but like ok...Its a kind of Britney situation
  22. Hello exhalers I wanted to write a little about my struggle with depression, different stages and my current state. I would also like to share life experiences and ways of how they faced it. it is a very long story and surely few people will be interested in reading it I also translated it with google, so it will be difficult to read hehehe But I would like that if someone feels bad and reduces their internal suffering because they feel they have a good life and do not know how to be grateful, that my story will serve them well. I would like more exhalers to share their long experiences with the constant struggle that those of us who suffer from this disease have and share, to bring out all the bad. I just wrote a long text that is very relaxing and healing. You feel happiness when you see progress and it makes you want to continue improving (at least in my case) well my story begins like this. I grew up in a dysfunctional family where my father beat my mother every weekend. When I was 7 years old she died, I thought it would be the end of suffering but there was still much left. My mother (who is very good) had her own demons and has never been able to contain me. Therefore I continued surrounded by fights, conflicts and emotional abandonment. My classmates weren't very helpful either. For a long time I suffered bullying because of my physicality and my sexuality. I did not know how to defend myself so I grew up being a kind of joke for everyone ... and at that time I thought that laughter was the maximum love I could have. From the age of 13 I began to expand my circle of friends. I started to bond (not lasting) and that made me feel better. Despite the fact that the whole environment in my house was a total chaos, with my mother we got along very badly, she was very jealous and possessive, she would not let me go to parties and when I had activities like going to the mall at least she called me 3 times checking where he was, what he was doing. Also, I constantly spoke ill of my friends, always wanting to make it clear that the people who joined me were a joke, that I had no real friends ... which made me feel deeply pathetic and inferior to the rest. first stage 16 years. Onset of severe anxiety when I started experiencing depression it was at 16. I was constantly feeling empty and sad and didn't know why. The suicidal thoughts began to become frequent and strong, but despite everything, i felt that it was stupid, that i should not listen to them. I felt weak and childish ... now I understand how serious it was to lower my feelings 17-19 hyperventilation When I was 17 I started drinking alcohol. My city is small so everyone knows each other, however, I was too well known. If I went to a party, all the guests located me, showed interest in me and always invited me to many celebrations. However, despite believing that he had clear ideas, he used parties only when he was depressed about problems at home, so it was a time of many unfortunate drunken attitudes. Sometimes I got drunk at parties, I had erratic attitudes in full drunkenness and that made me a very bad name in my city. I reached a stage of being very overexposed to gossip, many people wanted to know my sexuality, if I was as alcoholic as "everyone said", who I was dating, etc. Other times I would go to a party, dance, come to my house a little married and a few days later a friend said to me "Hey, I knew they saw you very drunk at that party, right?" And while it often was, most of the time it wasn't. It happened to me a lot that they made up things that I didn't even know I was doing. By the time I turned 19, everyone believed that I was a stupid young man with no future, the people of my city pigeonholed me and believed that they knew me well from the comments. 19-21 University I changed city at 19 to find my bearings. I took a career influenced by the wishes of my family because cinema was not going to give me so much money. For 2 years I studied excessively, I tried hard, I wanted to look smart and show that I could ... but the hatred of my career was very great. The suicidal desires returned and worse, constantly after studying I fell asleep crying, I just wanted to retire and study cinema ... or I just wanted to be happy. I went to psychologists but I told them half of what I felt, because I still had that damn habit of inferiorizing my feelings. At 20 I became someone uraño and conflictive. He was constantly involved in fights started by me. My circle of friends was considerably reduced and I was considered unpleasant by many, which caused me many bad times. The worst thing is that I got more and more shy and withdrawn. All that joy of mine was fading, I was having trouble making friends or engaging in interesting conversation topics. On the other hand, I reached a point of type I obesity, therefore I always had comments regarding my physique. By 21 I lost weight, which made me obsessed with my physique, and despite being thin, I felt fat, and I wore baggy clothes to hide my stomach (and the truth was I was very skinny) 21-22 copy and paste As for love, until the age of 22 I always fell in love with heterosexual men. For some reason homosexuals did not attract my attention, which made me lose a lot of time, because although I could have *** with someone and had a good time, my head was thinking of another man The first semester of university I realized that he did not know anything about me. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, I was only studying to prove to others, and never to prove something to myself. I stopped studying and started cheating on all my tests to prioritize my mental health, but it got worse ... every time I came out of a copy I felt like my life was a sham. Besides that I was still too shy to make strong friendship bonds so I felt lonely. Not to mention that despite the fact that I was not heavy with my teammates, I had already made myself a reputation for conflict, adding the copion, I was one of the most hated of my career. I'm not a bad person, I just have my demons like everyone else, and as a young man I didn't know how to control it. I never make comments with evildoers and I always try to be a good partner, however the people around me were determined to see me as a bad boy, cheater and ironic (well, I am ironic but I do not realize it ... and I really love it. Guilty pleasure ) 22-23 etapa final: Rehabilitación I started going to the gym and worrying more about my physique. I met several suitors who gave me a good time, however, I fell in love with a gay boy who was not interested because we were both passive ... but he lied to me, he told me he was active The worst part is that obviously no relationship I tried worked out in the long term, because I was always thinking about him. That year I spent many moments of anguish and loneliness (as always) I was far away from my mother because I could no longer bear her character ... but despite everything I knew that something inside me was improving, because at least the desire to commit suicide had already decreased considerably. 3 months after turning 23, I had a strong relapse I just wanted to retire or kill myself. I returned to my hometown for vacations and my mother was someone else, even though I was very defensive and had sudden mood swings, she taught me that if she could recover, I too because I was young. The anxiety disappeared, I became someone nice and with personality again. When the pandemic started, I had a lot of time to analyze what I want and where I want to go. Re fall in love with my career and life in general. Understand that life is a constant university and that if you are going to be above the lane it is better that you see the most beautiful landscape possible. Now I believe in reincarnation, and that sooner or later the energies reward us ... if we are happy people we attract happy auras too And most importantly, that feelings are valid, you just have to live them and not repress them. Look them in the face and kiss them, and get on with life. Knowing that I am a priority, listening to my instincts and knowing that the path I am going is the right one, because despite having my demons, I have not made bad decisions, my mother will have her character but she is faultless and magnificent in her own way. I have a small group of friends but they are very loyal and caring. The best thing is that it gave me young depression, without money and without great responsibilities other than studying. I hope I can face life in a good way and be as honest as possible thanksforreadingme
  23. i feel like this is probs quite a common scenario but i hate where im at in life. i despise it. i feel so so mediocre. but its ridiculous. i lit turned 22 last week and feel like a failure bc i havent found my feet yet .. ? writing it down like that makes me realise how ****** up that sounds. 22 is objectively nothing ... idk, i just wanna learn to live in the moment and live for today i guess rather than being so goal-orientated ALL the time, constantly looking for the end product right off the bat. if anyone has any tips for grounding yourself in the present that'd be neat!
  24. So I wonder why Britney never showed up to the interview, was it that she didn't like the lady doing the interview or did she just wish to remain silent. Seems odd to do a magazine shoot especially the cover and do no interview! Does any one know what happened with the incident of her leaving a perfume shoot crying around the same time? I think the photos are simple, beautiful but effective. Britney asks in one her documentaries "when did I take that photo my god" implying she never remembered taking the photo's. I'm not sure which one it was either I Am Britney Jean or For the record.

  25. I swear people pick celebs to stan as if they are picking a character in an RPG (role playing game). They see their choice of which celebs to stan as an extension of themselves because they have this image of themselves that they want to project to others. They become identities, and we all know how vigorously people will defend their own identities. Without trying to get too big here, I think the 2010s will be defined by identity politics and the increased number of ways we can define ourselves which is of course good and bad. Stan culture is just one of the many new ways people are choosing to define themselves. Stan culture is so unhealthy for a number of reasons but namely that we forget our faves are humans, too. We treat them like untouchable gods or objects belonging to everyone, but when they show themselves for being flawed humans like the rest of us we discard them. Then it won't be long till we place someone new on that pedestal. It's kinda vicious. I wonder if we, as a society, will ever move away from worshipping celebrities ? I follow a bunch of fan accounts for TV shows that I like and these people have slowly morphed from just standard fans of the show to people who treat the actors like they're their friends. You know how some people see Taylor Swift as their friend / sister? That, except worse... There's this one girl and she goes to like ten of those Comic Con type things a year and does a cosplay each time. There's this group of actors that she always meets, and then one in particular, to the point where they all know her name, her job, family issues, etc and it's so damn weird to me.
