Timesink doesn't have the best connotation, but I wanted a word which encompasses anything that takes up the largest amount of your time. (One might imagine some people are retired, or only work part time, or spend most/all their other time raising children, so "job" might be misleading.) 1a. Is there overlap between your doll hobby and whatever endeavor occupies the most of your time? 1b. If so, is your greatest time investment making BJDs/BJD things (dollmaking/accessories/faceups/mods whatever)? Perhaps for another type of dolls? 1c. Who thinks they'd win the most unrelated occupying endeavor? 2a. What about any continued education? Does your college major/post graduate degree/vocational school degree/apprenticeship/certification/whatever relate in any way to your doll hobby? My first thought was art school, but I could see law degrees helping in business and chemistry/chemical engineering helping with resin casting. Maybe functional anatomy anthro degrees/mortician/doctor/veterinarian for sculpting, I don't know. 2b. Who thinks they'd win most unrelated educational background? 3a. Do you think having a background/education/experience/unrelated endeavor makes it harder for others to understand why you like dolls? 3b. Any good stories about surprising people when they found out? 4a. If your work or education background is very different than your doll hobby pursuits, can you stretch yourself to think what perspective dolls or doll collecting has provided you, and vice versa (work perspective on dolls)?
