I got new filaments finally. Idk what I'm doing wrong though. Every time I try to print, it gets all globbed up.

as in when the thing is sitting there heating up it pre-cums a bit of filament?
nah, when I start the print, it does the little line on the side of the print area and then when it starts printing the actual thing, it sticks to the nozzle kinda. It's on the side because I cancelled it again after I noticed it was still doing it. I've tried 4 times, same result

Can you post a picture of what a successful line looks like on the side
That’s a purge line fwiw

I wouldn't call this a successful purge line but it's better than what it does on the actual print.

any suggestions for cleaning off my print bed? I used a glue stick to make it more sticky, it comes off with some rubbing but I wasn't sure if there a better way.

for a glue stick? Hot water. Ideally you shouldn't need a glue stick if you use the right surface for the right material choice.
