FYI My longest post on PC ever. Sorry in advance - OP I hope there's something useful in this for you. I'm back in your thread and giving you my morning before breakfast, is my way of saying ' I care '.
Usually between 1 - 5 NEW students, per day come to me for random pieces of advice. Some from here @ PC , some from Deviant Art - Mostly from Deviant art.
It's always the same questions maybe worded slightly differently and I do my best to answer every single time, every single message. Sometimes I get behind and have to catch up at the end of the week but I do my best.
As well as those, I did 2 10+ question interviews last week, on my time, for students who were still in school. For school essays, papers, projects etc that contain the same questions they always do.
I'm exposed to 'all this' *makes a big circle shape with hands* on a fairly constant basis. Everything that encompasses 'young artists trying to find their way in this scary fucking
PLEASE HELP!!! Very important!!!This is a really important journal so please at least take the time to read it~PLEASE HELP!!! Very important!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You see, I went on vacation and we were on this island and I saw a crab... so I decided to take a picture of it cuz it was gonna be my Gilcrab... anyways, I pulled out my camera that I LOVE so much and dropped it face first into the sand. So anyways... I no longer have a camera... I am so upset right now because I just began to love cosplay AND photography and then it had to happen...
So now that I blabbed my entire story here's the important part. I need a new camera. If anyone would be kind as to let me know which camera's are really good for cosplay and for taking videos for CMVs and such, I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know what Kind of camera i should get.

- Let's say you ship RusAme. Okay? Okay.
- You go to the search bar and type "RusAme""Russia America" or what ever.
- Search results pop up.
- You click "newest" to check out some fresh work.
Now, being a RusAme fan, I think it'd be safe to assume that you'd be expecting to see artwork some where along the lines of this: http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&global=1&q=russia+america#/d2a4g35

It makes you look immature and reflects badly on your mini-fandom.
I shouldn't have to search for my OTP and see this crap: http://gorillazgirl1.deviantart.com/#/d56egvf

Why can't you guys tag what pertains to the pairing you're submitting?

In the same neighborhood as the Axis Mansion and the Allied Manor, there was another house nearby that was just as festive.
It was the house of Spain, the country of passion and tomatoes! Outside hung his flag, that of Romano, and the German flag for Prussia (who was now East Germany.) This was a rather odd trio to live in the same place, but they somehow managed.

Honestly, who the fuck created Reader Inserts? I just want to take their little head and smash it against a wall a few times, then do this -> :iconsupertackleplz:
God, they are annoying. It's all I see now. I have no time for it, so I continuously keep clicking the X button in my messages, but then I actually X out some pretty good deviations from my fave artists/writers.

This is one of the reasons why I made sure to get rid of any sign of a Reader Insert when it comes to my group :iconhetards:. If I even see a slight chance of it, I get rid of it immediately.

Hetalia Sims 2- Axis House + More Allied Story!Hello Deviantart! I have been writing these Sims 2 journals that show the daily lives and drama of my Hetalia Sims. Today, I'll introduce you to the Axis Powers, and continue the soap opera that is the Allied Story.Hetalia Sims 2- Axis House + More Allied Story!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning: This journal is long. I covered two houses, and their stories got very interesting! This also contains some crack-shipping, so don't read if you don't want to see!
Once upon a time, in Sim Land, there lived the alliance of Germany, Italy, and Japan.
In this alternate universe, Japan and Germany were united happily in marriage, adopting Italy as their only teenage son. (This arrangement was suggested by another Hetalia fan, but it makes for an amusing twist.)
Man Cured of AIDS"I feel good."Man Cured of AIDS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The fact that Timothy Brown is a reasonably healthy 46-year-old is no small thing. Only a few years ago, he had AIDS.
"I feel good," Brown told ABC News. "I haven't had any major illnesses, just occasional colds like normal people."
Brown is the only person in the world to be cured of AIDS, the result of a transplant of blood stem cells he received to treat leukemia.
"My case is the proof in concept that HIV can be cured," he said.
Brown got lucky. The blood stem cells he received came from a donor with a special genetic mutation that made him resistant to HIV. The genetic mutation occurs in less than 1 percent of Caucasians, and far less frequently in people of other races. Before Brown got his transplant in 2007, doctors tested nearly 70 donors for this genetic mutation before they found one who was a match.
But doctors hope that a similar solution could help other people with HIV: umbilical cord blood transplants.

I Love Hetalia, but this is kindof rediculousWay too many Hetalia fans on DA. I typed in 'Ludwig' in the DA search thing, and everything that came up was Hetalia. Don't get me wrong, I love that webcomic/manga/show but still, it's not the only thing in the world. In order to see the acuall (too lazy to spell check) drumset, you have to add 'drums' and not even 150 devientations show up. Hetalia is not the only thing in the world peoples. If you type in 'Ludwig Hetalia' over 21,000 devintations show up. I love hetalia, but I do think that it IS a "bit" overrated. There are other things. Like Futurama (TV, Comic Book), the Big Bang Theory (TV), Soul Eater (TV, Manga), Garfield (comis strip), Star Trek (TV, Movie, Comic, Novel, too many to list) Doctor Who & it's spinn offs (TV, Comic books, Novels) just to name a few.

3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and post their icons in the journal.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
6. No tag backs.
7. No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this." You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

Sex~KidateCalf made a journal about underaged sex that I think I must agree with.Sex3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not comfortable with the idea of people 15 and under having sex. By 16 and 17 I feel better, 18+ is the best.
The reason I'm not comfortable is because they're still kids, they're not likely going to know what they need to know (and god knows this country isn't going to help them). They're also not likely to be mature about it.
Think of it this way, how you know you're too immature for sex:
-- You think you NEED to do it or else you don't love your partner.
-- You want to do it just to "get it done."
-- You're worried about your parents finding out and punishing you for being too young.
-- You feel like you have to because "everyone else is."
-- You want to do it to get some sort of status symbol or for attention.
-- You giggle at/censor words like "penis" and "vagina."
-- You want to do it on a whim.
-- You think having a child will be easy and want it for reasons such as a status symbol, attention,

What's with that?
Yeah, I know, for those of you who've read this http://fav.me/d4zaxtb I probably sound hypocritical. But to be frank, I didn't approve either. That was NOT how I was planning to portray Japan, my writing just sucked :iconotlplz: But seriously, what the heck is that about? And then the few times I've seen this averted it always seems to be one of these cases:
1. The nations do not have free will.
2. They genuinely do not understand how bad it all is.
3. The story is mostly objective.

I've been a fan of both of these WONDERFUL things for two years (I think...), and I will continue to love them.

Anyway, the ones that bother me are the fanfics with not-so-good grammar or the one that have an awkward writing styles.
Now I'm not getting bothered with the authors themselves alone, the ones who critique/bash on these so-called works also bother the hell out of me.
To those that comment on how horrible/suckish/crappy a piece is, can you uh... Put it in a nicer/less mean manner?
I mean, if you're gonna comment on it the first time: You could say something like this.
"I'm sorry, but I don't mean to offend you in anyway, I'd just like to correct blah blah blah (Insert critique here)
Anyway, that is all. Please do keep my advice in mind... (Or something along those lines)"

So... I was attending a three-day long youth conference thing and one of the "teachers" there asked us to do our own research on our family tree and discover if we have any foreign blood within us.
After asking my grandma and father a lot of stuff, I discovered that I am actually not only Part Spaniard but Part Chinese as well. So yeah, I decided to share that to the youth conference.
Now, I'm seated right behind this girl who I didn't know was a Hetalia fan at first. I only discovered that when she suddenly blurted out a "Kawaii" when she saw my iPhone wallpaper, which is Canada holding Kumajirou. (Here's a link of said pic: http://www.zerochan.net/1109340) She told me who was the Kawaii guy on the wallpaper and when I told her it's Canada she to
Devious Journal EntryI just love animals. If they were raised right, their love will be unconditional to the ones they trust. They dont care if your gay, straight, ugly, pretty, black, white, tan, blue purple, whether you have two arms or not, IT DOESNT MATTER! Only a few people know this, and Im one of them, but animals are more caring and loving than us humans are. Now doesnt that make humanity sound sad? How something such as an animal, can be more loving that your parents or best friend? Im grateful that I have had so many of these wonderful creatures in my life. Because when I break down, and lose everything, I know at least someone, no matter how small, will be there to lick the tears from my face ;n;Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This

what to do?People mood are ups and down..what to do?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
and mood for artist are very important..
I don't want to admit it at first place.. but actually right now I'm having massive art block, I feel so disappoint and shame at my self because this makes me neglected my job..
its already a week and I haven't draw anything.. I just stare at my computer screen and do useless stuff.
usually when I don't have the mood to draw I force my self to scrible, and the mood come instantly, so I never be able to skip drawing even a day, drawing are just like eating and dringking for me.
but now, the more I think about it and force my self to draw, I become depressed and got stomach ache.
I even think to quit Drawing forever...
whats wrong with me???? its never ever happen before..
without drawing I am nothing..
I feel so damn useless right now..
NB : I hope i feeling better soon, >..
