Read closely, and just listen.
SUICIDE IS NOT THE ANSWER.
I know that a lot of you are very emotionally unstable and upset right now, but hear me out when I say suicide is NOT the answer.
I understand, some of you want to be with cat, you miss her I know. But think of this: She isn't suffering anymore. She is happy, she is at peace. She's in a much better place now suited for her.
Just because she ended her life by being pushed over the edge shouldn't cause you to end yours. Ending your life is the worst possible option you have, it shouldn't even BE an option.
Imagine your life in the future:
You can graduate, get a diploma(unless you plan on getting a G.E.D. or etc), find a career that suits you, get a job. You can meet the love of your life OR plan a happier future with the love of your life if you are currently with someone. You can have kids, your own house, and so many g
History of Wedding PhotographyThe 1840s was the beginning of wedding photography. There was little commercial photography at the time for the wedding day itself. Instead, it was all about creating memories of the wedding day. As the photographic equipment was limited (i.e bulky and heavy), wedding photography remained in the studio for more than a century. In the 1800s, the only kind of wedding photography there was was a daguerreotype portrait on a tiny copper sheet.History of Wedding Photography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
With limited resources, photographers used glass plates, tin sheets, and copper sheets for their photographs. One of the very first couples were Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840. Couples who were poorer did not hire a photographer to record the actual wedding, or to capture them in pose for formal wedding photos. Instead, photographers captured them before or after their wedding, out of formal wedding dress and into their best formal dress. These were always taken in a controlled environment, like a studio, and the photographer would position

The Leviathan and the Death of HopeWarning: contains spoilers concerning the Leviathan DLC, Mass Effect 3 and my notions about what good writing is. Duh.The Leviathan and the Death of Hope3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are moments when I wish I could just turn off my writer's sense at a whim and "just go with it". Ignore that a story in a game, or a movie, or a book, or a TV show is flawed in my opinion, just to enjoy the views, get an adrenaline rush from all the flashing colors and have fun. And truth be told - it usually works that way... Just not for the universes I tend to care about. If you got me invested in your franchise, I will expect you to deliver the goods. 'Tis how the cookie crumbles.
Which brings me to the Leviathan DLC. I've seen a lot of positive reviews and emotions towards it popping up all over the internet before I was even able to check it out myself. My hopes were high, and, initially, I loved it. It had a sense of exploration Mass Effect 3 was seriously lacking and the TGES Mining Base really reminded me of Noveria... It was spot on.

As I chase my dream, I got lost deep in the forest of my heart. [Begins to show a wide open field lit ablaze, with the flag of a tattered L.A.C Flag blowing with the wind to reveal Nova slowly getting off the ground to gaze upwards at the sudden explosions going on]
Rather than mirrors, it's the clear spring, that reflected a warped smile. [Suddenly shows the entire L.A.C Clan going on with their business, while showing Christa, Jahk and Marlow passing by with Targoth looming over them with happy expressions on their face's]
These tears that I have shed (Don't Cry), gold or silver they won't be. [Split Scene: Wolf recalling bits of his past life with his younger sister while accompanied with Shaine, Terrius and Zeus/Theron walking beside Vanuux with their blades out while facing against Storm Covenants.]

This was a really good episode, especially since it had a motivational speech from Caboose. Yeah, Caboose gave a speech and it actually made sense for once XD Tucker and Church apologizing to each other was also a great moment. Love how Carolina was so baffled that neither of them actually said "I'm sorry" XD And now we have to wait for two weeks to know whether or not they'll all take Felix's offer to leave Chorus... I'm guessing they're not gonna leave. I mean, come on, they're not that big of jerks, especially since they wanted to protect their Lieutenants from Locus and Felix.

Preventing Injuries for Artists (and people who work with computers)
Hello there my fellow deviants, time for a new update. It’s a long entry, so go grab a snack and sit tight with a good posture, because there's a lot to learn here - even some anatomy.
I just read about Loish’s injury on her blog, and it’s truly saddening to see a fellow artist struggling with a physical limitation that affects their workflow.
Loish is absolutely right, the body has its limits and we ought to be careful before it’s too late.
Tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, aren’t stranger terms to me, many artists and people who work with computers for many hours, tend to deal with the same conditions, some let it advance to the stage where the only treatment is surgery, which can potentially reduce mobility and destroy an illustrator’s career.
