A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)One ordinary afternoon, Waifu Niffy was just pondering to himself, deciding on that night's dinner for when his Hubby comes home.A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hmm, I guess it's lasagna again tonight, huh?"
When suddenly! A dark shadow looms over Waifu Niffy, taking him by complete surprise.
But before he could utter even the slightest damsel-in-distress girlish scream, the ominous shadow disappeared, and along with it-... Waifu Niffy!
Thankfully Fynn, the good neighbor, heard the commotion of broken dishes and toppled furniture and rushed to the scene right away with his trusty crocodile buddy Kuro.
"Ugh great, were those two at it again-...?"
Kuro, being the clever little detective he is, sniffed around the crime scene and deduced that Waifu Niffy had been wifenapped!
"Smells like Earl Grey..." /Sniffsniff
Kuro urged Fynn to call local police immediately!
"Police Grim, Police Grim! Please help! There has been a-"

A bit of a ramble from me to youHello everyone! Long time no see.A bit of a ramble from me to you3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to take this time to reflect on some things.
I was talking to Moorina and she inspired me to write this in detail and share with you all ^^
I've been doing doujin work and publishing in Japan for 4 years now... looking back, there has been a ton of sacrifices and bad decisions to be made. My life in general was kinda weird.
This is quite personal, but I though I'd share my life/experience with you guys.
My family was never well off. A lot of our friends don't know of our situation, of course. Our mother was gambling every single day and our father was never home. Mom would take all day looking around the house for hidden cash (stashed from my dad) while dad goes out to play pool with his friends. Our family borrows money from relatives and that's how we get by. If you go back to my journal entries from 2004, those were the days where we had to go to the internet cafe just to use the net because we couldn't afford to pay for anything per month

My Deviantart StoryI figured that since everyone else is doing this, I might as well share mine. I guess you can say that this is more of a confession than anything. Also, I apologize in advanced for the text wall ahead! I wrote so much text that I had to change journal skins because the one I originally use was too small.My Deviantart Story5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
[Scroll all the way down for the tl;dr version]
I first joined deviantart on May 14, 2007. I was in my first year of middle school and my friends, yellowxrice and Kayetart, invited me and my sister to join. The four of us were into drawing so it didn't take much to convince us. The account that I was using at the time was nyumi4 and I'm pretty sure that it's evident on how much of a novice I was at drawing.
Here are some examples of my drawings back then. Gosh, it's so embarrassing looking at all of these. I really wish I could delete them or deactivate this account but I forgot the password. I was so obsessed with Naruto a

Rant about thingsHello guys, it's been a while and I have a lot of things piled up to rant about. If you are interested about my recent thoughts on things such as commissions, self-esteem, people etc. read ahead.Rant about things1 week ago in Personal More Like This
Let's start off with a question - have you ever remembered about the stuff you did as a younger person and suddenly felt so embarrassed, that you wished to dig a hole 20 feet deep and hide, hoping no one would ever remember it. Recently I felt like that a lot, remembering how I used to undervalue myself and my time to the point of being ridiculous.
When I was 20 (lol, guys, I'm from the old part of DA, being 24 and stuff), I sold art that took me 20 hours to make for 2 USD, well that's around the price I was working around. When I got older, like 21, I sold art that took me 2 hours for 1 USD. And I felt rich after selling 20 of them and getting 20 USD. Like - woo hoo, I'm rich! Then, a year later I sold artwork that took me 5 hours for 15 USD, which felt more comfortable. Then I became 23, too

There are a few issues with the Journal implementation, but there aren't any issues we can't easily fix. And we got so much great feedback, that we now clearly understand some things we didn't before. The best part is, we're going to get the best of both worlds for Journals.

A couple of weeks ago my mom was detected a strange tumor in her left breast. She's going to have a biopsy in September (yeah, peruvian national health service isn't very good at all). I'm worried about her, I wish it would not be a malignant tumor. If you could pray for her I'd be very grateful. Thank you.
Prayer request from 1LoveDrew
Please pray for a friend of mine whose in desperate need for money. Him and his uncle have been struggling to stay in a house for a long time. They're having a lot of money troubles and now it's about to get worse! My friend only has TWO WEEKS to get over four hundred dollars to help his uncle pay rent. I was talking with him on the phone a few minutes ago and his uncle was cussing at him.
I want his uncle to get a grip and not cuss at my friend like that...... But I want even MORE for them to no longer have money troubles. I care so much about my friend!
He may be moving to his bro's ho

Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar

Self Suggesting DD'sThank you so much for all the +favs, the comments and +devwatchs I've received and still am for my Daily Deviation "Carried Away". You guys are awesome and I appreciate your support so much!Self Suggesting DD's2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Now I have a confession to make... I self suggested this deviation to DomiSM, so it didn't come as a surprise I received it.
I know from being a volunteer that some people feel that DD's should be suggested by others or that it should be a surprise. Well no, not always. Sometimes you have to fight for your work to gain exposure. Gone are the days where deviantART was a small site... you need to learn how to use the channels on dA to get the exposure your work deserves.
These days, I work in vector and the high pecentage of work I upload to dA is client work. A huge part of being a Freelancer is marketting yourself and putting yourself out there. This is why self suggesting yourself for a Daily Deviation should be
