You ever have a day where you just want to scream?


That's been how today has been.

Had no Fun at the Casino, lost money in the slots, even the Vending Machine took $1 cause it didn't work and no one was there to help, one of my boots messed up where the plastic part connects to the shoe had come unglued and that felt like I was wearing a big flip flop, and we got the estimate on the Car's Damage from the Fender Bender last week and that was over $20,000 so it's been one of those days where it would be better to go bed and forget things.

-Correction it only cost $2,500 to fix the Fender Bender, I can't process math today folks because my brain's been nearly fried.

Hot day here too and the heat hasn't been helping my moods and thankfully this collection helps to keep me relaxed at times because my room is set up in a way I can destress a little bit and relax because I spend a bit of time moving things around and doing dusting and I need to dust and clean again.

Just tired of things going to shit and this Month it's been a crappy one and I have to wonder how many of you have these days.



At least I got the Fate Grand Order Ichiban Kuji Shielder figure ITEM #901297 in that was missent in the Mail and took about 2 weeks to get to me and 2 Gundam Build Divers ReRise Models ITEM #943576 ITEM #897031 in and it's Thursday again so a new episode of Gundam Build Divers ReRise to watch later and it's things like that do help to make things better but my stress levels have been very high and I'm tired of the days where it feels like it's one thing after another.

There are days I wonder if I'm Cursed...but this is the way reality is you have good days and good months and then there are the times you have shitty days and crappy months so best thing I can do is stay in my room and relax and find a good display spot for Shielder and do a little dusting while watching some Star Trek.





How often do you have a lousy day?

Does getting a new figure help your mood when you have a lousy day?

SebastianLover1 mese/i fa#81111368I was in the final 2, so I was so depressed that I was so close and blew it. But I got a pretty good albeit stressful job later on, so in the end things work out if you can tough it out long enough.
...It's an expensive habit, although still cheaper than figures lol. Luckily for me, I don't enjoy drowning my sorrows. When I'm really depressed I don't even want to drink. It's better as a relaxer/party drink to make the highs higher..


Wow that must hurt when you are so close. The job im in used to be what i thought as dream job, after 7 years of stress, i just end up with a massive collection.

Looks like i got a weird immune system, it automatically buys figures and i get packages I don't remember ordering.. until i open it. Like today, that figure turned my mood around. Super effective

Yeah, yesterday was quite terrible for me. Had to cancel nearly a majority of my figures and orders from HLJ and AmiAmi (luckily didn't get banned as they were thankfully understanding, but got a warning) as my mom is slowly dying of liver failure since my family found out a couple days ago and I need to support her financially and other things.

To be honest, this year has been pretty terrible overall for me and most people. COVID-19 caused a lot of cancellations and delays for many things and made my life so much stressful at work and elsewhere.

Some other personal things happened as well like losing friendships especially a long-time friend. It seems the pandemic really made some people lose their minds and become aggressive from my experience.

I lost a lot of interests in a lot of personal hobbies this year. 2020 is my last year of collecting anime figures, action figures, toys, etc. I'm absolutely done. My wallet can't keep up with everything and felt burnt out. Also spent like over $700 on videogames, but played only like a few for a little bit and that's it and I feel like I'm done with videogames. I quit all my gacha games, online games, etc. I get addicted and waste my time and money on it, and feel sad and depressed afterwards. I only play like two games on my Nintendo Switch now and that's it.

2020 has been terrible... :(

How often? Every single day... But now I lost my garbage job, in huge debt because of medical bills and my failing health and yet I am so glad I am finally out of that shitty job. I have faith I will turn this around and I try not to worry about problems in the now. Because in the end problems are temporary and life is far too short to worry about them.

I do have such days. But on those days I do the opposite of buying, cause emotional buying can cause me an addiction I don't want and most likely purchases I regret since I don't really think things through like usual.

On lousy days I usually try to distract myself and work in the garden or watch TV or whatever.. A bit of meditation too if needed. I do look at my favorite Louise figure occasionally or tapestry :) which are in our living room.
Plus got 2 kittens now to cuddle and my bf.. That helps too

And huge bills always suck.. :/

I get stressed and angry very easily, so it doesn't take that much to make it a lousy day. I try to avoid it as good as I can, mainly because my body can't handle it very well. In the last month I only had a handful of days without any sharp pain in my chest & stomach area. I feel like most people got a lot more reckless in the past couple years. That's what bothering me the most. My dog is the most important part of my life, so I get pissed very quickly, if someone does something that could hurt him, like throwing glass on the floor, driving like an idiot, other dog owners who aren't able to controll their dogs, etc. - I own a minitature bullterrier and even though it isn't a listed dog, we have to deal with a lot of prejudice. People have been throwing bottles at us, threatened to stab me & my dog, laid out poison and food with razors in it around our house (luckily my dog is the only one around here who doesn't eat anything off the floor) and some even tried to steal him, once they found out how much a dog like this costs.

Still - I wouldn't trade him for the world. He's the one that keeps me going and always cheers me up when I'm having a bad day. He's so full of joy and friendly to everyone, even after some of the bad experiences we made.

Collecting also helps me to calm down. I'm happy whenever I get something new and something about dusting figures with a brush is really soothing to me.

I hope everything works out for you.

Bad days? Definitely! I know my lousy days aren’t as bad as some others here, but I’ll just share my experiences. Because of the pandemic (curse you, COVID-19!), my studies have been affected and school has been increasing the teaching pace to catch up with the syllabus. Now it’s day after day of having projects, homework and studying dumped on me and with all my other commitments and exams coming, I frequently study late into the night and have barely any time for entertainment like gaming or watching anime. I don’t have a lot of free time, so I cheer myself up by looking at my collection and dusting them from time to time. It doesn’t take a lot of time, but it definitely gives me a bit of time to switch off my brain and relax from the stresses of life.

Life sucks but my collection helps to make my day better!

I am so sorry you had a rough day. I do feel like there are good days/months as well as bad days/months. All one can do is just take it one day at a time and do something that makes one feel better. Honestly, watching anime, getting a figure I have been eyeing for a while, or dusting my collection helps me overcome a bad day.

SebastianLover1 mese/i fa#81111368Geez, that is a sucky 2 weeks. I'm really sorry about the job. I actually lost a dream job 2 years ago. I had this really snide Italian guy interview me and I choked, but I was in the final 2, so I was so depressed that I was so close and blew it. But I got a pretty good albeit stressful job later on, so in the end things work out if you can tough it out long enough.
Honestly you're lucky you can't drink. It's an expensive habit, although still cheaper than figures lol. Luckily for me, I don't enjoy drowning my sorrows. When I'm really depressed I don't even want to drink. It's better as a relaxer/party drink to make the highs higher.
Now to answer Tyjos' question, lousy days seem to happen at least once a week, and one day's lousiness can easily carry over into the next day. Some weeks it's almost like Russian roulette where you wake up and wait to see if your day will suck or not. Usually for me, getting yelled at by my boss in my morning meeting is what ruins my day. Getting a figure in the mail is definitely a good pick-me-up on the lousy days. And having a hobby like model kits to distract you is also a great way of coping. This is something I lost last year after I went full-on nihilistic that I'm trying to get back. I let all my hobbies die even gaming, and I'm working on getting back into them now that I'm in a better head space. Sometimes just doing something productive, no matter how small, is enough to turn your mood around. Like you, I find cleaning and organizing reduces stress, plus you get a cleaner space. It's a win-win.


Dusting and cleaning have never failed to chill me out or get me in a better mood over the past 14 years of living in this house.

It may sound mundane or boring to do that but I find it works wonders to do a little cleaning move a few things around then decide on what to work on the next day or work out a schedule and see if I can stick too it to get things done.

It's days like today that suck away so much of my energy and motivation for doing things leaving me in that mindset to avoid model assembly but gotta get over that and make myself build the Core Gundam and the Armor Sets next week or I may decide to build an SD kit, that's part of why I have a good assortment of SD Kits is that they are small and easy to build and don't take a lot of time to do it but are fun to assemble and I like the smaller kits almost like they are Nendo Sized Gundams and those are nice to have on the desk.

Talal1 mese/i fa#81111353No matter how bad your days or months are , still better than too many trying to survive from covid 19 . I get some times bad day , but I always say thanks god . It could be worse . Or let’s say if my car break down or I lose some times , the way I think about it , is that I did something very bad in the past , and god punish me in breaking down my car or laptop . That’s ok , maybe is a time to do something good .
Remember as long you are healthy , safe and have have food on the table you are better than millions of people . One last thing you have a nice room . I don’t mind to be locked down there for next 2 years .nice collection .


I'm glad that right now I am relaxed and chilled out, still doing well only lost a little bit at the Casino not a lot and if I am relaxed and able to stay relaxed after having a shitty day I'm still okay and good thing my Brother Nephew and Niece are coming in tomorrow so looking forward to having them here and I can give my Nephew a few things from my collection since I always give him a few things whenever he's here.

This room has helped me survive the lockdown and we may go back on lockdown soon with the way this state is handling Covid 19 [Mississippi, I'm basically stuck in a certain type of hell being in this state] so thank goodness at least this collection/room has helped me relax so much it's been worth all that I've spent on the collection.

At the end of the day I'm back to chilled out and not having a 3 Mile Island Meltdown even though that's what it feels like when I get overloaded by stress like this thank goodness for Scifi helping to chill me out fast.
