Telling our stories through art featuresIf someone told you that you had to find the 5-7 pieces of art on dA that best represent you, could you do it?Telling our stories through art features2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?
I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.
What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.
Beautiful dress, beautiful hair.

AC Challenge #97 - A Spark Of Color
What Your Challenge Is
July tends to represent an important day in American history. The fourth of July is a national holiday celebrating the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

REMEMBER THAT city or local ordinances still prevail over all these laws. If the city or county in which you live prohibits the possession of such an animal where you live, you would be in violation of local ordinances. To find out the laws in each city and county, you would need to check with each entity individually.
UK-England, Scotland, etc:
you do not require a permit or any other paper work as they are not on the DWAL list.
as for paperwork there is none which is a bonus to living in the UK plus you can move anywhere you want in the UK and you can take your furry friend with you.

BalanceI think life is such a delicate balance between confidence and self doubt, but rather than straddle that line, I seem to meander along it like a drunk person failing a sobriety test.Balance1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have a poster in my office of a quote from Henry David Thoreau "Live the Life you have Imagined."
I try to remember that whenever I'm discouraged. Inevitably I let self doubt wash over me, and I start to wonder why I put so much time, money, and hope into something that may just end up being a hobby. Hobbies are Necessary, but if this dream fails to manifest into reality, it will feel like a colossal disappointment. Anyway, enough with the negative... whenever I start to get down, God throws me a blessing, it's literally like I'm being reminded that life isn't supposed to be given to you, that's not how success works... keep going, keep learning, keep growing, and keep smiling! Good Things always come.

Voices in your head.
Multiple Personalities Disorder (now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder).
What pops into your head when you read those words?
Images of people sitting in a dark corner, laughing maniacally?
Jokes about the voices in your head agreeing with you?
Or something darker?
Do you picture people crying, lost and scared, unable to stop the nightmare plaguing them?
Do you think about doctors struggling to understand their patients' minds?
Do you laugh? Shudder in fear? Mourn for those suffering from their invisible ailment in psychiatric hospitals?
For me, it's a combination of fear and sadness.
I have a pretty bad fear of anything medical, so all those old (and sometimes

Troll:In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional responseor of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_internet
Bullying: the act of intimidating a weaker person to make them do something http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=bullying

+Atention! ALL HETALIANS!+It has come to my attention that many people are beginning to leave the Hetalia fandom. The reason behind this is not because the anime/manga is bad, or it had been cancelled, or anything having to do with Hetalia in general.+Atention! ALL HETALIANS!+2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No, it's because of the fans.
Nowadays, words like "hetaboo" and "hetafags" are what most people associate with the Hetalia fandom. "Why is this?" You may ask. Well, Hetalia fans (or "Hetalians") were not as decent as they once were.
Instead of being polite about their fandom, they shove it down your throat.
Instead of respecting ships they don't like, they bash on those ships, saying things like "NUUUUUU!!11! MY SHIP IS SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE blah blah blah."
Instead of loving the show in general, they obsess over the pairings.
This, my friends, is the outright definition of "weeaboo".
If this sort of behavior continues, more and more Hetalian begin to leave the fandom. In fact, it's already begun. Hetalians have already grown tired of their weeaboo-filled fandom
