ARE YOU AN EMPATH? I am...30 traits of an EmpathARE YOU AN EMPATH? I am...3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
1. Knowing: Empaths just know stuff, without being told. It’s a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing. The more attuned they are the stronger this gift becomes.
2. Being in public places can be overwhelming: Places like shopping malls, supermarkets or stadiums where there are lots of people around can fill the empath with turbulently vexed emotions that are coming from others.
3. Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own: This is a huge one for empaths. To some they will feel emotions off those near by and with others they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from great distance.
4. Watching violence, cruelty or tragedy on the TV is unbearable: The more attuned an empath becomes the worse it is and may make it so they eventually have to stop watching TV and reading n

SPECIAL TASK GAME: Freedom is a Cat:iconsleepwalker1803: vs. :iconpanthermodern23:SPECIAL TASK GAME: Freedom is a Cat3 months ago in Personal More Like This
SCENARIO: You wake up in small cages on opposite sides of the dark, cold room. You can see each other, and you can also talk to each other, but there’s no way to escape.
The cages are way too small for humans to move in them, but it happens to be just big enough for a smaller animal to enter them. So, your only chance to survive this lies within the paws of two cats - :iconcookiecat-plz: and :iconbiskit-plz:, who are with you here. Each of them is carrying a special collar with a key, which will unlock ONE of your cages. Your special task is to find out which cat is holding the key to YOUR freedom, and make him or her come to you!
But beware: Their owner is stalking around somewhere here, too…!
:iconsleepwalker1803:: Ugh ... ooooow ... what happened? Where am I? ... Damn, not this again! There are way to many psychos around my place!
Oh hey! That's new! Kittehs!! Hooray! They even have tiny necklaces. That means, they

Hey friends, watchers, visitors here on dA :icondeviants-plz: :iconlazywaveplz:
Today Iīd like to talk with you about :iconrainbow-tplz::iconrainbow-iplz::iconrainbow-tplz::iconrainbow-lplz::iconrainbow-eplz::iconrainbow-splz:
A good subject for a nice debate !!
Letīs throw around some thoghts ....
Do you really need a good title that fits the subject?
Do you need emotional content, are numbers,1,2,3,4,etc attractive?
Is the Title as important as the picture?
Should the title only be one word or a sentence?
I guess in the comment box you are able to write more about your picture, but you want the viewer to be drawn to the title quickly so it should be a title that atracks the viewer.
How do you decide about your title? How do you choose your favourites??
Do you decline or fave a picture mostly because of the title??
:confused: How importa

CRAZY CATLADIES CATURDAYBecause we are about loving animals here, this weeks topic is ANIMAL WELFARE:CRAZY CATLADIES CATURDAY3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Animal welfare is the physical and psychological well-being of animals. It is measured by indicators including behaviour, physiology, longevity, and reproduction.
The term animal welfare can also mean human concern for animal welfare or a position in a debate on animal ethics and animal rights. This position is measured by attitudes to different types of animal uses.
Systematic concern for animal welfare can be based on awareness that non-human animals are sentient and that consideration should be given to their well-being, especially when they are used by humans. These concerns can include how animals are killed for food, how they are used for scientific research, how they are kept as pets, and how human activities affect the survival of endangered species.
An ancient object of concern in some civilizations, animal welfare began to take a larger place in Western public policy in 19th-century B
time to get active on here again.time for me to start supporting people on here again, i've missed the contact with old and new friends. i've had a very good break, i'm in a loving relationship now so that side of my life has worked itself out. i feel like a new person, with new ideas and inspiration. i got burnt out there for a while. the weather here in queensland has been bizarre lately: bushfires, tornadoes, floods and that was in the space of a month. thankyou to all the volunteers, fire fighters, swift water rescue people, the rescue choppers who did the most incredible job to help a good proportion of north bundaberg residents who were trapped on rooftops: they've helped bundaberg, rockhampton, ipswich, and the little towns out west to clean up after these trials. our mayor here is a brilliant man, he cares for our community. not just to do it for the cameras, even after the last flood in 2011 he was visiting the people just recently who had lost everything. the very best in people come out at these times and ttime to get active on here again.4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Due to the "wonderful" and "innovative company" (more like "Overhyped" and "underpowered") APPLE, I'm in the process of moving away from most of Apple's exclusive software in favor of more universal programs. For editing, I'm trying to move away from Apple's "Final Cut Pro/Studio" and starting to transition to Autodesk's "Smoke" instead.:iconorgasmingplz: Also in the process of learning more about "Unity Pro 4" and "CryEngine 3" so most of my life lately is pretty much studying at the moment. :iconstudytimeplz: Which is ironic because I've NEVER been one who likes school or homework So all of that has been taking up much of my time.
