Devious Journal EntryFalling Stars will shine so brightDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the world is still at night
Moon will fade and Sun will die
When we come when dreams are high
Into Darkness all will fall
From planets great to seeds so small
Nightingale will cease its song
When evil wins it will be strong
But where there's night there is day
Where there's a will there's a way
Where darkness is there's always light
Given the chance it will shine bright
Hope may be so frail and shy
But as long as there's good it will never die,
So follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high
Yes, follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high

JongTae 'Internet War' Perf. ControversyAs Shawols (which I'm guessing most of my watchers are), I am assuming you have seen -or at least heard of- Jonghyun and Taemin's new duet act. The song is "Internet War", by Seo Taiji, and it's been introduced as part of SWC2 and they also performed it at SM Town Seoul just a few days ago. The reason that I assume you've heard of it is that this performance features some very heavy metal guitars and a very much shirtless Jonghyun (covered in fake tattoos) getting... very up close and personal with maknae Taeminnie. It looks like they're going to kiss, but they don't. This is clearly fanservice. I will reserve my own personal opinion on the performance for the sake of an intelligent journal post.JongTae 'Internet War' Perf. Controversy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today though, I have stumbled across something even more shocking. I am not even sure how to say this, but apparently some 'fans' (if you can call them that) have decided to start a petition to kick Jonghyun and Taemin out of SHINee. God, that was hard to write! It was like a stab wound to the

I got to experience pretty much everything you guys mentioned in the last journal xD though not to such extremes in some cases. Overall everything was ok. China was cool and HK of course is shopping heaven. I'll make a better post later after I sort out all these photos. Most of the pics I took are of weird things... =3=
But anyway before that!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I was in Shanghai, this little sparrow (?) flew over and landed near me, so I approached it like I always do when I spot birds, expecting it to fly off when I try to poke it..but it didn't 80! So I picked it up.
Sorry for the crappy photos, my dad took them and he never focuses on the right thing OTL
I carried it around with me for the rest of our time in that area, but then left it behind cause I c

The Secret of Contentment Things That Cannot Be ShakenThe Secret of Contentment4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Secret of Contentment
In today's reading, the apostle Paul says he has learned the secret of experiencing contentment in all circumstances, good or bad. Does it surprise you that he wrote this when he was in prison, unsure of his future?
We're often discontent even when all is going well. Consequently, we wonder how it's possible to be truly content during our most difficult trials, especially when there's no end in sight. So what is genuine contentment? Paul is speaking of a freedom from worry and frustration about everything in life--even unfulfilled desires.
It's usually when we cannot control or change our situation that we feel

I believe this is a great redesign of the original outfit and it has a great layout,
with comments and illustrations to clearly show the outfit's design. I fell in love
with the design and it's components, color schemes, and details. I can't wait
to draw Sunozone in that outfit!
I loved this so much, it was so hard to choose the other outfit over this one. I
love the tomboy look and how it stood out against the others. I loved the
goggles, shirt design, but most of all, those amazing pants!

The God Who Forgives
Jesus Christ gave His followers a pattern for prayer that includes seeking forgiveness daily. The invitation to regular repentance is not a means of renewing our salvation, but rather a maintenance plan for our fellowship with the Lord. When we trust Jesus as our Savior, our sins are forgiven forever. The stains from our past, present, and future wrongs are wiped from our record; however, we're a fallen people so we do continue to commit sin.
With the exception of Jesus Christ, n

The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest
It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun."
