I was going to be a Surgeon.
As a child, it was Veterinarian, but as I grew up I realized with my brain, I should use it to help people. How better to help people than to save lives?
It didn't work out. Second semester of ninth grade I started getting stomach aches. Sounds like no big deal but it was, as a kid who had never been sick suddenly getting out of bed in the morning was a challenge. I missed school. A lot of school. Fell far enough behind that for the first time in my entire life I was going to have to struggle to pass my classes.
Me—the child who got A's in her sleep—all because of some stomach aches. "They can't be that bad, you just don't want to come to school." But I did want to go to school. Problem was, insecure kid that I was, I started to believe everyone who told me I was making it up. I was a skipper, a delinquent.
Then it got worse. Grade ten rolled around and suddenly I have headaches, too. Migraines. Every day. To my frien

Musings about the Mass Effect SagaYou know, all this Marauders Shield/Hold the Line/Rewrite the end of the saga things...Actually gave me some reflexion about what I think went wrong with the trilogy's end ; and I always end up to the same conclusion : it's all Mass Effect 2's fault.Musings about the Mass Effect Saga3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dont get me wrong, I like this game. The gameplay is a blast, atmosphere/graphics are neat, the characters are compelling, and it's epic. I can't even say the story is crap, because in itself, it's a good opus.
But - story wise - it fails completely at being the "2" of a trilogy. It feels more like a spinoff, a Mass Effect 1.5.
If everyone blames the ending, maybe look before that : at a game where the story holds on a post-it, and the story of the last game had to be squished into one opus (and possibly lead to a rushed mystical ending).
I could also say that it's "the trilogy"'s fault, because this damn habit of making everything a trilogy nowadays is very annoying. Of course it prevents bad stuff from spawning too many sequels, but if y

It was founded in the 8th century, eventually becoming based in Baghdad, and was a major intellectual centre during the Islamic Golden Age. Scholars there made it their business to collect as much information as they could, from all corners of the known world. They would collect books and texts and return them home for translation. It made the people of the Islamic world among the most culturally advanced on the planet.
They constructed astronomical observatories, they forwarded the science of medicine, mathematics, chemistry, zoology, geography and cartography. They drew upon the work of both those who had come before, and their contemporaries, and then advanced it. Many inventions from the Islamic Golden Age have had a legacy that lasts up until this very day:

October in IllinoisMy raven still looks curiously down from his perch atop the china cabinet. Still silent, not even a "nevermore". "Are we not men? We are Devo." drifts up through the cracks in the floor where the light goes to die. Clink-clang-clack the radiator's broken again and I'm late for the staring contest with Jimmy McQueen. Summer flew by my window so quickly I almost missed it, the snow close behind it. Picnic baskets with frozen chicken on the lawn. You wear your pope hat and smile sweetly, and I couldn't care less about anything else. The tin man dances and the world explodes into poppies. This wasn't a dream. I know because I began with my left foot. The design on the carpet is Victorian, the plastered walls pale green. Heavy curtains and shades keep out tomorrow. I like it just fine here, thank you. Who's relevant? Only you.October in Illinois3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's.
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour

Should Today's Technologies Inspire?
We got to interview a visionary futurist with an eye on technology about what would inspire today's comic book writers to create our next superheroes with knowledge of real technological and scientific advancement.
You never know when it’s going to happen – that otherwise quotidian moment when you suddenly realize your entire thought process has just been tripped up and cast down a cerebral rabbit-hole destination unknown.

about complexity of digital craft techniqueDigital painting is around in the business literally just few years. Its widely misunderstood and underestimated. People who haven't tried it have very limited idea of what is it actually about. Generally, I feel that within the common folk, digital art has either bad image, or completely wrong image.about complexity of digital craft technique3 months ago in Personal More Like This
When I finished my final work in fourth semester, I was asked very strange question by the commission. How is it done? I thought answer: "Its painted digitally" would be enough, but all the capacities were looking at me with even more confusion. The question was laid upon me one more time with good focus on word "how?". Then it was my turn to be confused. Finding words to describe I was interrupted by one of the commission members. Obviously she thought how to answer this much more than me. "Its made with use of brushes", she told the rest. However, this did not solve the mystery. In the haste we had, question stayed unexplained. Later, when I th

To anyone who finds these memory cards,

My name is Charles Snippy. I am probably the last sane human being left on earth. I know not whether you will understand this message. I know not whether you'll even be able to decode the ones and zeros on these data cards. I know not whether my voice will even reach anyone.
I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.

I'm talking about Banks, The Free Masons, The Illuminati, You people are probably the only ones who understand what it means to see the whole picture, to awaken and see the lies we are being fed on a day to day basis. There are some things about Religion itself in which you have been manipulated.

You should come to play on our server - invite your friends and stuff!
Server name: Multiplay - Furry Chain
You don't need to be a furry to join, all we ask is to not mock furries, just game!
We really need more population on the server, because the server shuts itself down when theres no-one there for a few days.
And if the server is just down and useless for all - what's it worth paying for?
And we always need to have bots to get decent size teams - we really need more players!
Why we got the server was that:
-we wanted a server that has good pings at EU
-we wanted a furry friendly server
-we wanted a server that has decent maps, no fucked up mods, and maybe a little faster spawning time too.
Anyway - I'm gonna be playing there soon today.

Soviet Medal 'For Courage'
French 'Légion d'Honneur'
German Iron Cross
SS Honor Rings and Regimental Rings
...and much more.
These are not mere ribbons or metal trinkets.
These were earned through courage, pain, blood, honor and self-sacrifice.
They are not casual stuff to be worn with your punk, goth or military supply outfits, so you might look cool.
You have not earned them in battle.
So if they are not something passed to you by a family member who found you worthy of his heritage, or something you use for educational purposes in the framework of historical reenactment shows, events and photoshoots...think twice before wearing them.
Of course you might want to wear that like you would wear a rock group T-shirt, not giving a fuck of what it means. In this case, you and me have very little in common.
