Are You Safe?Late at night...when I cannot go to sleep, I think about things that most people would consider morbid or dark, like death. Death to me is not something to fear, but to look forward to, because I know where I am going when my mortal life ceases.Are You Safe?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But there are people who do not know what lies at the end of their life, and this bothers me. You may ask, "Why? It's none of your concern." But...as a follower of Christ, I do fret about it. It keeps me up at night.
Death is unavoidable...all of us will step over the threshold at some point in our life. We cannot escape it. This, by its self, does not bother me at all. Maybe it bothers you. The question is...are you safe? Do you know where you will go when you die?
There are a lot of people who believe that when you die, then that is the end...there is nothing more, no Heaven, no Hell. Just oblivion. I used to believe this too (I was an atheist)...but even as a soul who said that there was no God (this has changed, and I am so thankful that it

Proof that I should never date~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Proof that I should never date1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(I posted this on my Tumblr page, as well.)
Call me a late bloomer. I'm 21 and only went on my first date a few months ago. I've always been so gung-ho about my education and starting a career that dating was just never really on my radar. So when a guy from one of my English classes asked me out, I stared at him, blinked for a few seconds, and then agreed, thinking all the while that there had to be something wrong with the dude if he wanted to ask me out. I had, after all, just finished talking about why I liked to paint John Keats' death mask.
But despite my trepidation, I went out with him anyway. It was okay. He was nice enough. But I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something off about this guy—aside from the fact that he incessantly texted me poetry, wh

Which do you think looks better?In your opinion, which do you think looks better for a backdrop, presentation wise:Which do you think looks better?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Outdoor with blurred trees/sky background:
Personally, I always preferred the outdoor lighting, but I'm not sure it looks totally professional. You always see the white background when jewelry is on display. Now, I know the outdoor ones might have more color so the PICTURE might look nicer, but for selling a product, which do you think is best?
I don't know why this has been bugging me lately but I've just been looking for ways to make our etsy pictures look nicer.... or more professional? Maybe it really doesn't matter, but for some reason I feel like the outdoor pictures make it feel more like we're going for a nice photo rather than presenting the product in a nice way... does that make sense?
Yelling at ChildrenBefore the title, I should note that I picked up my sister from the airport last week, the eve of the 21st.Yelling at Children2 years ago in Personal More Like This
With a Giant cardboard Mayan calendar, with a sign saying "You Got Home Just In Time!"
And a bucket of candy, to hand out to strangers and her because "Screw the diet, the world's about to end."
I am Best Sister.
As a note, the airport staff thought this was hilarious, and the security people took lots of candy. Apparently, I'm still not the winner for Most Ridiculous Homecoming Fanfare. Some one else came up the DIA escalator and got to ride a PONY out of the Airport. Oh well, there's always the next semester.
Meanwhile, I've been yelling at a lot of kids lately.
It's December, so there's a lot of small children out in public and many of them are having meltdowns, destroying property and generally behaving in a manner that would get a dog put down if it did that. Some are obviously just tired or confused, and I forgive them. It's hard being short, only pa
Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artistHey guys. I've written about copyright law in the past, but there are some things I just.. never thought to mention. However now that Sarah and I are working together, we're dealing with several types of art theft at once. Everything from the recast dolls situation (where someone buys your doll, makes casts of it, then sells it to the public. Yes this is illegal, more on that later), to someone submitting my art to a game company as their own for a job. In many cases we are dealing with ignorance, so I thought I would clarify a few things.Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artist1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This is going to take a while.
The Recast Situation
There is a new trend in the ball jointed doll industry, where people are taking dolls and sending them to 'professional recasters'. These people then make a mold of someone's doll, and recast it. They then proceed to sell the doll to their customers. The artist receives no compensation for this, nor is allowed to even have a say in anything from the quality of the resin, to the
AbuseI'm sorry, I need to write this.Abuse8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I got a letter, from a young person who I will not identify (and will try to keep this vague for them). But they wrote me asking if they were wrong for the way they feel. They are being abused at home, and their family member is being abused as well. They're scared to do anything, and it's a complicated reason why they're scared.
I want to say this out here, because this isn't the first time I've heard things like this nor will it be the last. I want to say it publicly for those that are too scared to reach out or just don't realize that they deserve better.
It's scary, when you're young and frightened and your family is being hurt but you don't have a way to fix it and you're not sure if you even should. It's beyond scary. It's terrifying. You feel so alone and lost, and you don't know where to turn. I'm going to say this once, I'm going to say it a thousand times. You are not alone. There are people who understand. And you deserve better
The Mary Sue DilemmaWritten for :iconthe-bards-college:The Mary Sue Dilemma1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pretty certain all of us know the term "Mary Sue". It is one of the most dreaded labels our original characters can earn. But what exactly is a Mary Sue?
Is she an unlikable protagonist?
Is she poorly written?
Is she cliched?
Is she an author avatar?
Is she an idealized character?
Is she a power fantasy?
Is she infallible?
Is she the center of attention?
Can a Mary Sue be male?
Can a Mary Sue be a canon character?
What exact combination of these traits are needed to make a character a Mary Sue?
The term originated back in 1973 in a parody Star Trek fanfiction called, "A Trekkie's Tale." I had never read it before tonight and was shocked to find how short it was. I highly recommend taking a minute to read it before continuing here.
Over time, Mary Sue stopped referencing the specific character and became notoriously attached as a term meaning unrealistic self-insertion wish-fulf
Douchebag of the year AwardSo, this happened a few nights ago.Douchebag of the year Award11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I live out in a rural county and have to take a fairly windy, two-lane road to get into town. I am on said road at dusk, going five under because the deer like to play chicken with my van. A muscle car with a souped-up engine, flame decals and the license plate "WRK 4 FUN" comes roaring up behind me, going at least 20 over the limit. the road is made of blind curves so he cannot pass me. This infuriates him, so he flashes his brights, curses, gives me the finger, etc. I do not speed up, because hitting a deer might kill me. After about 60 seconds, he decides to pass me on the left, on a blind curve.
…and he hits the oncoming police car.
I slam on the brakes and get out to make sure everyone is okay. He hit the cruiser mostly on the side, so the driver's side engine, mirror and door are wasted but no-one is seriously hurt.
Douchebag gets out first, and starts cussing at me, the police officer, and life in general: "FUCKING FUCK FUCK, YOU FUCKED UP MY
10 Myths About IntrovertsI came across this list recently and felt like sharing it. I am an introvert, myself. I found myself completely agreeing with all of these things !!10 Myths About Introverts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Myth #1 Introverts don't like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don't talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won't shut up for days.
Myth #2 Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don't interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don't worry about being polite.
Myth #3 Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don't see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure t
Just something I stumbled upon today"Admit it. You aren't like them. You're not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the "normal people" as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like "Have a nice day" and "Weather's awful today, eh?", you yearn inside to say forbidden things like "Tell me something that makes you cry" or "What do you think deja vu is for?". Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing?

Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I

Does this inherently mean a new era? Perhaps not. But our future is in our own hands. Why not try?
Why not use this as an opportunity to start working towards a new time - towards a better world? Sure, none of us have the power to change the entire world as they please, and I have no illusions that those who do, will be reading this journal (if anyone has such power at all). But why not choose to do something within your and anyone's power, to make the world a little better for at least some of us? Or to make the future a little bit brighter for us all?

The genius of Miyazaki - Art HistoryIf you haven't heard his name, you must have heard about at least one of his creations. So, who's Miyazaki? It's easier to say who he's not.The genius of Miyazaki - Art History2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki was born on the 5th of January 1941 in Bunkyo, Tokyo, as a second of four sons. His father was a director in young Miyazaki's uncle's factory producing rudders for fighter planes - this is where Hayao became highly interested in aviation, which often appears in his films.
When Miyazaki was a little kid, his mother suffered from Pott's disease (sort of tuberculosis) and spent a few years in a hospital. Some says that a very similiar motif appearing in "Tonari no Totoro" ("My neighbour Totoro") was strongly inspired by that part of his life. Also, during his childhood, Miyazaki had to change his place of residence and switch schools several times, which influenced his films a lot, too.

I've had this number calling me for two days - some telemarketer saying I'm qualified for a voucher of some sort. Well the first time I answered I hung up. They have been calling over and over and finally I got pissed off enough and tried the technique my instructor told me.
They called. I answered.... in German. XD
They hung up.
Then they called again, this time with a Mexican operator. I answered again in German (saying hello how are you) The guy asked. "Mam do you speak English." I said (No, I speak German) It was then awkward silence before he hung up.
lol, Idiots. They are even more when the first guy that called was American - thought I was speaking spanish, and called again this time with a Mexican operator.
Dumbasses. If they keep on calling - I'm just going to mess with them even more. XD I guess being forced to take German in high school did pay off.
