The Most Awkward Personal Rant =/(Ugh, I debated deleting this whole thing, but I'm not!)The Most Awkward Personal Rant =/3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is partially about writing, partially about silence, partially about discouragement, and probably TMI.
I got thinking today thanks to my lovely American Literature professor who is actually the most horridly cynical human being I've ever met. He makes comments all the time about how we're more or less not smart because we're attending a "community college," how being in class is a waste of our time, how he even hates teaching us. I wrote an essay and got accused of plagarism because there was no way those words and thoughts could've possibly come out of my own head. Ouch. That bugged me because the most reliable thing I've had in my life is my head; my thoughts, my ideas, my intelligence, and writing is the clearest way I've ever found to express everything and anything inside me. It's something I'd grown proud of. And for him to assume and tell me that these ideas/writing were not my own just really invalidated
New! Cubism Messenger Bag Design Challenge!New! Cubism Messenger Bag Design Challenge!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What comes to mind when you hear the name Pablo Picasso? That’s right, it’s time to break it down, Cubism-style! For the first time ever, we are hosting a Messenger Bag Design Challenge! We want you to create an original design for the flap of the bag in the style of Cubism.
For this challenge, we are defining Cubism as an art style in which instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from multiple viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often, the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create a shallow ambiguous space.
Your design should appear on the flap of the bag (below the zipper), using only <

It's a Tag!Tagged by SigartIt's a Tag!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) So, you're a Hetalia fan of some sort (or I wouldn't have tagged you), what's your favourite Hetalia AMV/slideshow and why? (Was that two questions? Is that cheating? Maybe it is, what you gonna do about it, huh?)
~~Oh gosh, there are so many that I love, but I think I have one absolute all-time favourite that I always at some point return to watch again. This one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Qi3CI8LFA0 I saw this video before I knew what Hetalia was, and it prompted me to watch the show. I was like "Swords? Guns too? Wait--what? There's so many different time periods and a huge cast of characters and incredible art; what is this amazing thing?!" This video set me up for disappointment at first (I watched the first episode after...), but equally introduced me to a fandom where the fans do so much work to turn it into something intricate and intense and very cool
2) *Le gasp* Your city/town is facing imminent disaster! Where will you move if it was total
New shop!Hey guys!New shop!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just wanted to announce my new shop on Society6!
I only have a few things up right now, but I promise more will be up soon! What I need to know from you guys is: which of my pics you would like to see as prints? Society6 has specific requirements for image size so not everything may be able to be a print but if there is enough demand for a certain one I can resize it as best I can (I save everything as layered PS files so there's still hope!)
But you can get more than just prints! You can get laptop skins, iPhone cases, even throw pillows!!
Since my latest internship ended this week this will go a long way to helping me financially as well as getting my name out there. Any support you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!
Also I wanna take the time to promote my fiancé's :iconcatvomit-inc: $5 Sketch Commissions. He has medication that he must take on

I wish the people of Northeastern Japan the very best, I hope the thousands of missing individuals will be found, and I urge the Government and other relevant organizations to provide us with accurate information regarding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
I also wanted to give them a moment of silence.

Yes, I'm writing a fanfic, as advised by a lot of my friends.
This story involves N from Pokémon, and my Trainer OC: Shin called "in illo tempore"
The story is set in a various number of different time periods, but "the present time" would be post BW2 in Unova. It's based on N's Background Story, as well as "Pokémon 4Ever".
I just submitted a sort of "pilot" chapter, giving you an idea of the background of it, so if you're interested please feel free to read and comment! I would love to hear what you think!
My 2 Favorite Quotes"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." -Steve JobsMy 2 Favorite Quotes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world... But it requires people to make the dream a reality." -Walt Disney
