Learn to read, learn to respectTo begin with - this journal is not directed at my fans, it's merely a general observation I made.Learn to read, learn to respect2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have just visited a profile page of an artist I know. He posted a journal in which he apologized to his fans for not being able to do requests and art trades, because he was busy in real life. I've seen quite a few people on DA post similar journals, in moods raging from apologetic to furious, so it no longer surprises me. The point is - this particular artist has already posted a similar journal a couple of months ago. Apparently, one journal is not enough. That, or people are analphabets.
For this reasons, I have a big request to everybody - learn to read. Before you ask somebody for a request take your time to do your research. Most artists have stamps saying "I don't do requests", or journals stating that. Some have folders in their galeries destined for "Art for others". Some even have FAQs in which you'll find all the information you need. Trust me, having to answer an obvious que

A Guide To Drawing Decently.If you believe your art sucks/you're in need of practice, read this. It might be helpful.A Guide To Drawing Decently.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, I'd like to say I believe in you. Whoever you are, however you draw, whatever you draw. I do. I don't even have to know you. Just know you can do it.
There are my rules to improving on art:
#1: ALWAYS use reference pictures. Take a look at my favourites! I have lots of pictures you could use to reference animals there. If you don't have interest in those I faved, just look up ______ stock photos. Or just the name of what you want to draw and click Photography.
#2: Fix it! ERASE as many times you feel it's needed!
#2: Look up TUTORIALS on whatever you're trying to draw! But be aware that you won't go from zero to hero in a sec. You got to:
#3: PRACTICE! Work hard on what you're trying to do! Human, animal, anthro, pixels.. You can only lear
Good news...Well, first the good news, anywayGood news...4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday someone I barely came to my door, because they heard I was very good at rehabilitating injured birds. They brought me a baby robin that was attacked by a cat. My first thought was that it would die, because cats have a bacteria in their saliva that's designed to quickly kill small animals by making them contract blood poisoning. This is so that if they aren't successful at killing their prey, and it gets away injured, they can hunt it down and have another chance at making the kill after it quickly weakens.
He is also unable to walk (Male American Robin) which troubled me greatly, and I suspected a wing or leg injury. Luckily, no broken bones- and even MORE luckily, NO broken skin! I did however find a devastating bruise on his right thigh and 'armpit' part of his wing. It's very deep and painful, but I have high hopes for this baby- All he needs is food, water, and a safe place to rest until he heals up. He is a fledgeling, and almost ready

Zero goes outside againSo after my previous experience letting Zero into the yard went awry (Too afraid to fly away from a cat) I took her back inside. This was a few weeks ago.Zero goes outside again5 months ago in Personal More Like This
She has still been begging hungrily for food, but for the last few days refuses to actually accept the syringe into her mouth. I took this as a sign, and while I still offered feeding every time she begged, the amounts became less and less until it was just apparent she was only taking handfeedings for comfort and affection rather than for sustenance. So, I stopped grooming her and handled her less and less. As she began to avoid being picked up as dextrously as she could, spent more and more time near the window, and less and less time perched in one place, I decided it was time to try her outside again.
This time, I took her far into the back, where the woods are extremely thick and there are a lot of birds. There are also a lot of pine trees, the exact variety that her parents fed and roosted in at my workplace, and the branches b

She can move anywhere she wants to now, and she is always begging. Any time I go into the kitchen, she thinks it's time to eat, and follows me, screaming her head off and pooping with abandon at every step.
*Flies into kitchen onto fridge above me and screams loudly* WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THE FOOD PLACE
I SEE YOU ARE OPENING THE DOOR, ARE YOU GETTING ME SOME FOOD? *Flies onto my arm while it's inside the fridge* WHAT KIND OF FOOD IS IN HERE ARE YOU GETTING SOMETHING HURRY UP COME ON
*Flies to the microwave, hands horizontally from the door handle* THIS IS WHERE YOU WERE GOING NEXT, RIGHT? THIS IS WHERE THE FOOD GOES? ARE YOU GOING TO PUT IT IN HERE AND TURN IT ON? OH PLEASE, PLEASE SAY YES!
*Gapes her mouth open as I reach for the handle, tries to swallow my finger* THIS IS FOOD
*Screams back at the microwave every time it beeps.*
*Screams open-mouthed at the food cup when it comes out of the microwave, hoping the food will hear her plaintive cries and leap from it into her
Protected species, not worth saving?OKay so 4 days ago I went out to the break area at work. A girl name Erica alerted me to the fact that there was a naked, tiny baby bird RIGHT under my shoe. Luckily, I have a habit of resting on the tips of my toes. I looked in the nest (We'd known about it for quite some time) and it was full of other, much larger birds, and the baby I picked up off the ground was breathing hard and had a cloudy pupil in one eye, which was bruised and may have been pecked by the other birds in the nest. Its other eye wasn't even open yet, it was so young. It also had a bruise on its keel bone (chest) which made me think it had broken ribs and couldn't breathe because of it. If I put it back in, the others would just push it out again, the runt, deemed unworthy of life (like so many of us, by our 'superiors') and so I took it inside. It had been baking in the sun for a while, so I put a cool, moist towelette on its back which lessened the heavy breathing and slowly lowered the temperature.

Although I imagined it totally different while watching the trailers.
I dunno what to say without any spoilering. I liked it but I think I like Monsters, Inc more. But MU was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. I think it's much more colorful. And there are much more fluffy monsters xD It also was, well, pretty heartbreaking but I started spoilering already. I LOVE the first scene. Who in the world would cry at the first scene of the movie? I almost did! Liked the music from the first film. DEM FEELS.
And of course I was disappointed at some things...
I wanna watch it in English now!
After watching the movie, I bought a play set "Scary pairs" with Mike and Randy. They're my favorites and I'm glad I found such set. Although Mike looks pretty creepy in a bad way...
P.S. Fellow Fandalls, stick it! I know how it feels!

I don't know but the last 2 months I just learned everyday and I was just happy when I had the time to play a little game or something. I'm just glad I am finally done with it! *w* German and English was great. Psychology was okay. I think I did it quite good. Math was a pain in the ass - and I have an A in mathematics. But everyone was like "WTF I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE FROM ME" ... So it's ok. XD Seems like I am not the only one. And the last tasks were easily done. I hope I did not failed. |D

My name is Shaina, but I'm rather uncomfortable being called my real name. I only really tend to use it when I'm referring to myself in third person, or talking to someone I know in real life.

I just wonder what is wrong with people. Really. I was at school a few minutes ago. On the last class, they were screaming, hitting the tables, making loud noises and being stupid in general. Ok. I am always quiet. I try my best to always pay attention to what the teacher is saying and I barely talk to anyone. I joined this school last week on Monday. At first I thought it was all nice, they were even kind of quiet. But then it ended up being hell. There's about 35 'students' in my class. All loud, all bitchy. They don't give a damn to learning a thing. I really hope they all will end up on the streets with no home and no food. What all they care for? Being loud, having their little boyfriends and girlfriends that they switch more than they change clothes. Know that song Stupid Girls by P!nk? That's mostly how I feel about them. Where the hell have the smart people gone?? And no, I don't mean smart as in you know everything about everything, but at
