SUICIDE AWARENESS NOTE....A not-so spammish message I copied from SMDKFan.SUICIDE AWARENESS NOTE.3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Want to kill yourself?
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over. You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down; holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell "Your dinner's ready!"
You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that

My deviantART StoryToday, I will eat a small apple, 30 grams of Raisin Bran, and a cup of yogurt for dinner.My deviantART Story10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I got to know about dA from an online friend of mine. I was 15. She was battling with cutting, and I was deep in anorexia and body dysmorphia. All I wanted to do after school, was to go to the gym for a couple of hours, swim after that, weigh myself, measure every food and put them into little ration packs.
AWAY FROM EVERYONE
I used to write daily in my online blog, after my paper diary was discovered by my mom who decided that it was a great idea to broadcast my inner thoughts to the family. I was so angry, and pretty much hated the world and myself. I don't think I could hate anyone as much as I hated my body, then.
dA provided me with an outlet to write my emo stuff growing up. The forum was a great way to communicate with others without hav

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place. This journal may get a bit gross at times, just sayin'How I (Finally) Got Good Skin3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
The friendship © :iconfredvegerano:The friendship3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The friendship is a love that never dies.
The friendship is a virtue that many people know it exists,
find some, but few recognize.
The friendship is sincere when forgetting is impossible
The trustsuch as art not derives from having an answer for everything, but that we are open to all questions.
The pain feeds the courage. You can not be brave if you just happened
wonderful things with you.
The hope is a loan request to happiness.
The happiness is not a award, but rather a consequence,
loneliness is not a punishment but rather a result.
The happiness is not the end of the journey, but at every turn that
traveled to meet her.
The people always stumble on small stones, because the big us immediately see.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the delight of the company. It is the spiritual inspiration that comes when you discover that s
Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Favorite Feature 10It is never my intention to make such a long feature of pictures. I just can not resist the huge array of great photographers and their artistry! Their pictures bring us such love and joy, it reminds us of our deep love for our own cats, as well as the ones we have lost. I wanted to bring the joy of what these precious little creatures mean to us. Precious they are, just look at this first picture! I can't express the depth of emotion that it envokes in a single word! I also love, love, the relationships between people and pets! Cats are our joy, our comfort, and what often keeps us going in an ugly world of many of life's hardships. A big thank you to all the great photographers for their wonderful work! You bring me such joy with your work and I am not the only one!Favorite Feature 105 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sweet SummerWhat Happened?Sweet Summer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Believe it or not, yes I'm still here! Life has been really crazy the past year, and this is why I disappeared from DA. My life has changed so much, from bad to worse and then finally it started getting better and better. I am so at peace and so happy now. Best point of my life in years! And it's all because of God. When you are in serious trouble and have issues beyond your control, it's amazing what kind of miracles happen when you let go and let God intervene. When you lose it all, and have nothing left to cling to in this physical world - not your parents, not your awesome job, not your beloved money, not your fancy house, not your sweet ride, not your beautiful face, not your hot body, not your intelligence, not your connections, not your relationship with your love, not your degree, and not even your own human awesomeness - that's when you finally look up. Sometimes being totally broken is what it takes for us to come to God. My husband
