500 Point Giveaway!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 31, 2015, 8:53 AM


Dear watchers,

Thank you so much for supporting me and my work! It's great to be back on dA and doing photography again after some time off :)

I wanted to thank all of you by doing a 500 point giveaway + feature. The only thing you have to do to enter is watch me and both new and old watchers are eligible as long as you are watching me when I pick the winner, so congrats - most of you reading this journal already have a chance at winning!

Additionally, you can get extra entries by:

Sharing this journal in your own journal = 2 extra entries
Pledge 10 points or more to the winner = 2 extra entries (please remark in your donation that it's a pledge for the giveaway)
:+fav: Faving this journal = 1 extra entry
Pledge to feature, watch, or give a llama to the winner = 1 extra entry for each task

Please comment below to let me know when you've complete any of the above (except for faving, I can note that from my notifications center).

I will be compiling a spreadsheet of all my watchers, and anyone who completes any extra entries will have their name added multiple times to account for it. At the end of the giveaway I will use a random number generator to pick the winner!

This giveaway will end within a week or when entries begin to slow down.

If you have any questions please feel free to comment below or send me a note. Thank you :heart:

Woo hoo! The day is finally here for my 100 watchers raffle! Now, one thing to be noted is that I don't actually have 100 watchers yet. I know, it sounds stupid. But I'm releasing this raffle at 80 watchers to not only allow these 80 people time to comment, but to bring in new watchers as well. Anyways, onto the rules!

HOW TO ENTER:


- Comment below and favorite this journal! Everyone is allowed to enter, so long as you watch me. This will earn you 1 raffle entry and a number that you have to keep up with.
- Don't like only 1 raffle entry? Increase your odds! There are two ways to do that: 
A.) Share this journal with your watchers. Comment again with the link to your journal and you will receive another raffle entry and another number you need to keep up with.
B.) Spend points buying adopts, commissions, or customs from me! I'm offering this option because if you spend points, the prizes available also increase, as well as your odds! If you spend points here and are watching me, you will receive another raffle entry and another number to keep up with.
What can you spend your points on you may ask; or, what if I don't have enough? If you have at least 1 point, you have enough for something! 1 point will buy you a generic palette pony from the pony gacha. If you don't like ponies or what you get, feel free to donate it to the super secret stash location by noting me.

RULES:


- You must be watching me to enter the raffle! If you are not, I will alert you.
- You must favorite this journal and comment. You can't pick and choose which one.
- Don't complain if you don't win anything!
- If there aren't at least 5+ people who enter this, the raffle will not commence. 
- Do not even try to use your main account and adopt/side account to enter. I want one person getting one-three entries. This needs to be fair. If you co-own an adopt account with someone who does not have a main account, note me personally and we will discuss it from there.
- NEW WATCHERS ARE ALLOWED!

WHEN WILL THIS RAFFLE END?

As soon as I hit 100 watchers!
If I don't get 100 watchers within a month, the raffle will close at the the end of the month.

And finally, what we've all been waiting for: prizes!

PRIZES:

Trophy 1st  1ST PLACE Trophy 1st 


-50 points
-100 point coupon to my page
-Adoptable page request, with first pick; number allowed to first pick depends on number of adopts on sheet
-Name displayed on my page
-5 picks from secret stash location
-Llama from me

Trophy 2nd 2ND PLACE Trophy 2nd 

-25 points
-50 point coupon to my page
-Custom adoptable -or- first pick claim on any one adoptable sheet in the future
-Name displayed on my page
-3 picks from secret stash
-Llama from me

Trophy 3rd 3RD PLACE Trophy 3rd 

-25 points
-25 point coupon to my page
-Name displayed on my page
-1 pick from secret stash location
-Llama from me

AND NOW, THE DETAILS!

WHAT IS A POINT COUPON?


I sat and thought "What could I possibly give them, since I don't have that many points?". And then I thought, coupons! By coupons, I mean totally redeemable slips in place of points. Now, this is only redeemable on my page, but if you're an active watcher or if you've been looking to commission me, this doesn't matter! 
To explain better, you'll receive an "official Party Slip passcode" with the number of points you have to use on it in a note. You can use these points as a free pass to my customs, commissions, or point adopts; basically anything I charge for. Just tell me you have an official Party Slip (so I don't forget) and I'll take your point total down. 
Now, here's a catch. You have an official Party Slip passcode so that you can share your winnings with a friend. All your friend has to do is go about as they would adopting/commissioning, but then instead of paying, they send me the official Party Slip passcode you gave them, and bam! They've bought something. The charge will be taken from your Party Slip total of points, and your friend will get the adopt.
With this in mind, DO NOT PUBLICLY POST YOUR PARTY SLIP PASSCODE. If you wish to redeem it, do not say the passcode in any comment area; you should not need to anyways, unless you are a friend buying with your friend's passcode.

WHAT IS THIS "SECRET STASH LOCATION"?


Ah, yes! The secret stash location. The secret stash location is a folder I'm filling with adopts of all kinds and all designs for you guys to get a first pick from. This folder is not public and will not go public until everyone picks the adopts they want, or until I reach a week where not everyone has responded. Once I've reached that point, all of the adopts will go public for free to anyone who participated in the raffle.
The catch with the secret stash location is that it is not a "winners only" thing. If enough people join the raffle, I will award however many people who did not place a chance to first pick an adoptable from the stash.
Things included in the stash:
Dream selfies, alpacas, jellyfish, headless, chibi dinosaurs, deer, mythical creatures, bats, skull kitties, crooked cats, cats, dragons, dogs, Cakets (original species), ponies, assorted galaxy animals, pony palettes, turtles, sheep, teabags (original species, ayinai), animal muffins/cupcakes, plushy animal icons, trash bags (mysteries)

I think that's it, and I hope to see you all entering!

You're Not Bad For Having Problems

Fri Jul 31, 2015, 12:00 AM


I've been debating all day about posting this journal because I didn't want to seem like an attention whore but I've realized that at the end of the day, it'll help people.

A lot of what you hear from people who have legitimate mental problems--or what I've heard from many friends, anyway--is comments like "I'm just a screw up," or "people would be better off if I was dead since I'm such a failure", among other things. I really wish I knew why people with problems had to feel this way because of how they are and the unfortunate afflictions they have. Let me use my own problems as a way to steer you guys (any of you who are hurting, of course) away from the mindset of feeling like you're 'bad' because you have something you can't help.

Yesterday, I went to the doctor for the first time in, I dunno...quite a few years. We didn't really have the money among other not so fun circumstances, so it's taken until now for me to get the opportunity to go. After talking with her and explaining what's been going on with me for the past five or six years (actually more than that), I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa in remission, panic disorder with agoraphobia, and insomnia. To those who think mental disorders are fun, I should be proud. To those who judge too quickly, I'm just 'screwed up' and need to 'snap out of it.'

Well...honestly, I'm neither proud nor ashamed of my diagnoses. I knew I had something wrong with me, I knew I had an eating disorder, I knew I needed help and now I'm going to get it. I'm not bad for being the way I am, I'm not a failure, I'm not incapable of doing the things I want to do in life as long as I don't let it control and define me, and...hey, I'm going to be okay. Even if the anorexia relapses, and it very well could...I'm still going to be okay because I fought it before, I'll fight it again and I will kick its ass.

Should I sit around and feel like I'm now a less-important member of society just because I got put on psyche meds? Should I be all gloom-and-doom because there is a chance things could get bad again? Nah. Nah, son. Wanna know why? Because if I did that, I'd never get anything accomplished. My art would dwindle down to me eventually doing nothing creative and productive, I'd lose my clients and probably a lot of friends, and I'd be miserable for nothing.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to make a lot of life changes. Some that I really don't want to make, too. It's going to be hard, but I can do it and so can you. You can get better. Don't let all those people who put you down have the satisfaction of being able to say "whelp, I was right. They failed at life."

No, you get up and you shove their bullshit right back into their faces by proving to them that you CAN do it and you DID do it and you're doing great, despite having bad days. Everyone has bad days, and those with mental illnesses are no different. If people can't handle you on your bad days, they don't deserve you on your good ones, right?

Please, please just don't feel like you're worth any less because you have a problem or you got a not-so-great diagnosis or something. Don't feel like you're not as good as everyone else just because you need or ask for help. Everyone needs help at some point, and if they say they get through life 100% alone and do everything single-handedly, they are lying through their teeth.

Throw your pride away, throw your fear away, throw your self-hatred away and realize that you're just as damn good as every other carbon life-form on this planet and you don't need to let others' views of you break you down. If you want to know what failure is, it's someone who's not exactly all that high on the food chain tearing into someone else who's vulnerable to make themselves feel special. That is failure at its finest.

If any of you guys need to talk, need advice (and are willing to take it), are going through a really rough time... feel free to note me. I can't say I know everything about all problems but I can help with the things I do relate to. If I can't help by giving advice, I can at least listen, you know?

Stay strong, love ya.

I think the kid's older brother took his younger brother off of life support. Now, some of you may think he did this because he was being a bully to his brother as usual but you forget what he said:

"Hey, I don't know if you can hear me. I'm sorry."

It shows he deeply regrets for treating his brother like trash for who knows how long and the Bite finally shows him that. And seeing his brother's condition gave him two options: either let his brother stay alive and be bed-ridden for the rest of his life or take him off of life support and end his suffering. And I bet he chose the latter because deep down, despite being a jerk to his brother, he still cared for him and he didn't want him to suffer like that for many years to come. But, he's gonna have to live with the fact that he killed his own brother.

This could also tie into my theory that the older brother is Mike Schmidt and why he keeps returning. Mike is at least a young adult during FNAF 1(which many speculate is in 1993). So, if the older brother is a teenager in 1987, that's enough time for him to mature and be old enough for the job. He returns because he feels like this will be a way for him to redeem himself after what he did 6 years ago. Too bad the animatronics will eventually hunt him because they can't even tell Mike from the Purple Guy. And he might even be the FNAF 3 guard. But, that's for another time.
