Seek and you shall findHiya Ryceballs, oh my god what an insane couple of days. I don't even know where to start I really don't, it has to do with papa Ry, my dad. It has been an emotional roller coaster for him and this whole event is kinda like a joke now when I think back on it. OK long story short, he was afraid he's gonna be jobless, pretty much he left his old job to work in a 'better' job only to find out that this better job has an even more unreasonable boss bla bla bla I don't wanna get into full details for his privacy's sake. So now he wants to quit this current job and go back to his old job and im like 'ARE YOU FREAKIN JOKING ME?! YOU JUST LEFT! AND NOW U WANNA GO BACK?!' Like how embarrassing would that be right? But he says he has no other options and no other jobs out there, so I told him to look for jobs online and he's like 'Oh nah it won't make a difference'. :I This is coming from a man who doesn't know how to turn off an ipad. So I told him a true story I read... I thought it hasSeek and you shall find2 years ago in Personal More Like This

DreamssI had a dream that they made a new SSBB, and they replaced Lucario with Entei.. they also made Marth English o m oDreamss3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I also awoke from a nightmare, though.. It's hard to explain a nightmare and have it still be as scary as you felt it was xDD
So I was talking to this cat and it practically pitch black outside, I was in a clearing next to a forest and had a flashlight. The cat was a small looking normal orange tabby. And he was telling me tales of scary shit. One of them was something around a giant monster took two giant slugs and slowly ripped one in half, ofc as he's telling me this I can see it happening
õ H õ In detail.
So after that he goes to tell me again and I'm like, nope nope nope, do not want. So he was all okay whatever. So he tells me of these three kids who always had to look behind them in case there was a giant creepy ass monster behind them. Now this is so much scarier than it sounds. Like, no one knew what it looked like but I could just feel it was some scary ass shit.
Extracurricular ActivitiesSo, I had a dream last night about my friend Britney dragging me around school to try out for color guard(you spin around flags and fake guns). When I woke up, I realized that I had plans to join color guard before school ended until I forgot about them. So, now I'm texting her about actually joining.Extracurricular Activities3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I MIGHT ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE WITH MY SAD QUIET LIFE.
I also might get the opportunity to get a job working on the tech team since I'm in Technical Theater (The making of costumes and props for shows.), so that another thing to juggle/fall back on. But that's some real work, bleh.
Hah, but I've just been informed that there's a camp for color guard with lots of physical training.
BETTER START PREPARING MYSELF.
I want to make myself start walking and exercising so I can get rid of this summer weight I'm collecting. I wish I had a treadmill.
Treadmills are so simple.
But I'm kind of excited c: I have a handful of old friends in color guard, so it'll be a nice way t

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was reallyI will not be subjected to criminal abuse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
White knightsI haven't spend much time on my computer last weekend, but enough to see that DeviantArt was kept busy by a troll that apparently did really well for as much as trolls can 'do well' on the internet. A little over 4000 pageviews in just 4 days the account is online proved not only the artists involved in the matter took offense... but apparently a lot of other DeviantArt members as well. Even those that seemed (to me at least) totally uninvolved with the troll or the particular type of art.White knights1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
For those that wonder about the issue; It's about Foxbun's rather cynical joke about the 'closed species' matter. (I'm usually against name calling here. But this account has intentionally created for its goal. It has been all over the site already and would've been in the comments within 10 minutes, even without me mentioning here. I don't provide a link, though. Use your search engine if you want to research it.)
The term white knight is to most older members of DeviantArt (or the interne

So a couple of days ago I checked my DA Notes and there was a pile of messages waiting for me. I haven't been able to check DA often as of late due to work and the fact that my Computer has been dying and I've been trying to avoid using it as much as possible until my new Computer arrives. ANYWAY, I was surprised to find a note from my friend, masa-kocha. I opened it, and this is what it said:

Of Broken Things and a Heartless ManThis is going to be long and stupidly detailed but I think I need to get this out because I have a feeling that I may not be the only girl with a story like this.Of Broken Things and a Heartless Man3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A couple of years ago I met a boy called S. He was kind, quiet and made me coffee every morning at an office we both despised for what it represented. I fell head over heels for his quiet charm, his music, his soothing voice: who he was. Except I didn't really know who he really was. Slowly, over the course of the relationship, he began to point out things he didn't like about me. He didn't like the way I overused certain phrases, the way I spoke, the way I sang, and he didn't want to listen to me talk about my past because it burdened him, and he didn't like that...basically all the little things that made me, ME would have to change. This is where I made the most critical mistake.
I changed for him.
I changed who I was to please S. And do you know what? The more I changed to suit his needs, the more demands he put on

My bedroom is a royal mess, so royal in fact, I think I see a Princess Celestia pony somewhere in the mess. (I knew someone was watching me last night...)
Plus, I haven't been answering comments/commented/faved/drawn anything for days... And I blame the laundry hangy-thingie that's in my room. I'll clean it up tomorrow. Yep. I get so unmotivated whenever I hang laundry up to dry.
But tomorrow, after I've partied soft, Layton style, I might do some cleaning.
Oh yeah, it's 17th of May tomorrow.
Hmm, Happy birthday, Norway? it's our independence day, just without Will Smith and the aliens.

i went to my Independent Research: Drawing class, which i signed up for late. so i didn't know quite what to expect, having not been to class yet. the only thing my professor told me to bring to class was a drawing i'd worked on or completed lately...
do you realize how vague that is? my mind went into overdrive. should i bring a large one that was more conceptual? should i grab a still-life? a comic? i was losing it. but then my dad, who is good friend with my professor, having been a grad student under his teaching, tells me to show my professor what i LIKE to do.
thus, i take the Hunger Games drawing i've been coloring, and a completed Blaire design.
i was so embarrassed when i showed him my cartoons, that i started rambling about how i'd like to go into animation, and he stops me. he asks me what materials i need to do that. i kinda freeze, cause i wasn't anticipating that at all. but then i spit out that i hadn't thought about anything spec

Behind the pretty faceI had such a pretty face.Behind the pretty face2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or at least, that was what they told me when I posted my picture.
I have to admit that I rarely post my face online. Not so much for privacy's sake (I don't have the illusion of privacy, with the NSA around) but more because I've never liked taking pictures pictures. Back in the time, I was probably one of the few young girls that wasn't fond on making selfies, and therefore often had ID's showing either my back, my drawing equipment, or just a drawn image of me. The reason I posted a picture, was because it was for a good cause. An issue that I wanted to raise awareness for myself. The many people that had already posted their real pictures, encouraged me as well. That internet isn't all about faking who you are, but about the 'real' you as well. No matter who you are. Boy or girl, pretty or ugly.
