The Car, Commissions and an Agenda Mom and I lost the car yesterday.The Car, Commissions and an Agenda8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thankfully, Mom wasn't completely and utterly devastated. She was actually in Mom mode yesterday. We had a long, inspirational talk about our options for the future. Mom was motivational and kind. Just a little frazzled, but more than willing to move on with the future. So her attitude lifted me out of my shock and funk.
Today it's been all about job applications, researching a trade school and writing 'Coming Undone'. Tomorrow it'll be more of the same thing. Full steam ahead.
A few of you ordered either commissions or PayPal commissions. By now, you're definitely wondering 'OMG WTF WHERE IS MY ORDER?'. Since I'm currently in no mood to mechanically churn out orders, I promise to finish them later. Pushing me to hurry up and complete your order, in a rude manner, will only turn me completely off to finishing it. Want an example?
If I owe you a commission of any type, please do NOT order me to finish it l
Gay Love: Its Beautiful Too. I feel the need to explain my love for yaoi and the gay community. So here it is.Gay Love: Its Beautiful Too.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I fell in love with male/male romance once upon a time. I had the honor of discovering a gay hero in Mercedes Lackey novels, in an age I can't even remember. I was very young but adored Sir Vanyel, and his struggle to find true love. His struggles brought tears to my eyes. Vanyel ultimately found true love with a guy named Stefan and I cried.
I was very young, but bored by the only concept of romance I knew: m/f romance. It put me to sleep even then. But I always scribbled down stories about incredibly affectionate male friends and brothers. I'm certain if I had found out about gay love back then, I would've embraced it. And here I am today. So being a yaoi fangirl was something I was born to become.
'Gay love is sinful and God smites gays' many say. But many forget: God's love is pure. Unconditional. It is for ALL of His children. God's love is not restricted to a Premium Membership

"So there was this guy, stood at the top of the bridge, and we were all shitting ourselves on the ground, yelling up "Don't jump", "don't do it", "stay there", all kinds of things, and he looks down and yells "Give me one thing to live for!"

And thank you Betsy too for being so supportive over my boy issues. I have decided i hate men. Unless they are fictional and perfect. In which case i love them.

"Now Alice. How many chocolate advent calendars maximum, would you say a greedy person should have?
"I don't know I'd say 30."
"Excellent. Good. I've got it just about right then."
Speak to you all soon, lots of love!!
Attention all Writers!My friend Carter, :iconminewalrus42: found a real neat new website/blog thing.Attention all Writers!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Two men, both with literature degrees, will critique any writing you send into them via email with no charge. They will give you their professional opinion on your work.
Well, there is ONE catch: They are completely blunt about it.
I recommend it. Carter submitted his works to their site and got their advice back in a heartbeat!
The link is here: http://bluntcritics.wordpress.com/
Please submit to them. They give genuine advice in blunt form. They are rather under appreciated.
Check it out when you get the chance! And you can submit anything. Essays, novels, crappy love letters, anything you want. They will be blunt but it's for your own good.
And more news my friend :iconlolgal64: and I have made a website for comics we hope to one day post. So keep watch for that. -http://zanacomics.weebly.com
I don't know if anyone really cares.
But this is what I had to say.

Great Writers!!Lately I've been home sick from class because I may have walking Nomoneia, I'll find out later today when I go to the doctor. But in said time I have read so many wonderful fanfictions. One of the I have written about before, is the Princess and the Slytherin, by :iconCurious-Love:. And lately I have really been enjoying AATC related works, and found loads of great ones. Last night I found :iconstarbin21: And she did an amazing job of making me cry at least five times in her story of SimonxJeanette: Stolen. Her one takes are also sweet. :iconPeruserofpieces: also has a three chapter story that is called Two Hearts that is just truley sweet. And :iconDevastator1775: has a whole load of stories First Snow, A Chipmunk Feud, Comfort during the Storm, A Chipmunk Love Story, and When I Woke Up, You Were There. He has a slight tendancy to have Simon get seriously injured in his stories, but it makes them great so... What else can I say.Great Writers!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Francisco Brennand-the documentary(beware typos and messy text due to over excitementFrancisco Brennand-the documentary9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sooo...A friend of mine got some invitations for the avant-premiere of the documentary "Francisco Brennand"
Most of you guys probably wonīt know who Brennad is, unless youīre Brazilian (and even then, chances are you wonīt know him, unless youīre from Pernambuco or just REALLY into art ). Basically Francisco Brennand is a multi-media Brazilian artist, whose works on ceramic are quite famous. But he also has plenty paintings, drawings and other stuff. He was part of the Armorial Movement in the 70s, which is an artistic movement that intended to delve into the arts and culture of the Brazilian Northeast, exploring its African/arabic/Iberian/Medieval roots turning it all into "academic" art. (for those who donīt know: the Brazilian Northeast was the first region colonised by the Portuguese. So there are MANY survivals of the Portuguese/Spanish/Arabic late Medieval culture in the regionīs folk culture. Itīs pretty amazing).
Post Carnaval hangover+Happy Valentines day!Soooo...I was away for a little while. As you guys know I live in Rio de Janeiro, and anybody who knows anything about this town, probably also knows Carnaval is a bit of a big deal. so I kinda took a break to follow the festivities. Mostly I lurked the blocos (blocos are those huge groups of people who party on the street during Carnaval ) and followed the Samba schoolīs competition on TV.

Now, not all of these guys are perfect picks, of course, some might be too handsome, not thin enough or not have the right complexion...but overall I feel like if you mix and match they can be great references to work with.
