Hell, who doesn't like improving?
If you are honestly truly really, after much introspection, writing only for yourself and not particularly interested in critical feedback, I would skip this. There's no point.
Here's the thing: improving depends on having some thick skin. How do you know if you're there? Read on below.
Please imagine these comments directed at you, most likely in an email (though hopefully not the same email), about your favorite and most polished work ever, the one that you'd like to see on the front page of the New Yorker or with a prologue by Neil Gaiman or something. IDK man. Poets, fill in whatever you need here.
Your work is too long and boring.This is absurd and uninteresting.This is not funny.Not for us

For winning December's theme, Raichulolrat will receive 20, a free request from Operia and a month-long feature on her and Shiny-Pokemon-FTW's home pages.
I'm sort of out of ideas for themes...please send me some suggestions, people! Anyway, here goes.
The twelve signs of the Zodiac; they signify one's birth date with special characteristics. From January 20th to February 19th, it's the sign of Aquarius that reigns supreme. Aquarius is a water element, so clearly we should have a theme about Water Pokemon. They are the most common type, after all...seriously, there's over 100 of them.

Letter From My Art TeacherThis is amazing! Going through my bank statements I found a folder of items my parents kept throughout my years of school. In it I found an appreciation letter my High School art teacher made for my parents. Check it out below... Oh and my real name is Christopher.Letter From My Art Teacher4 years ago in Personal More Like This
To whom it may concern:
I have Known Christopher for the past 4 years. I have found him to be thoughtful and thorough. This is evident in all written work as well as the projects he did for class. More than once he came into the art room to get help on proportion or values (shading) during lunch break or before school. He seems very eager to learn.
Christopher has a natural curiosity and always wants to improve. He took art classes more than once. I remember how surprised he was the first time I asked if I could put one of his drawings in an art show. After class he asked, "is it really good enough to be in an ar
TALENT IS EARNEDTalent is EarnedTALENT IS EARNED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get it. There are some people out there that do have some extreme capabilities right out of the womb, but this is targeted to those who are average joes, who think they can’t do things that a person with ‘Talent’ can.
Let’s start by defining the word ‘Talent’. According to dictionary.com it states
1. a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing.
2. a capacity for achievement or success; ability: young men of talent.
3. a talented person: The cast includes many of the theater’s major talents.
4. a group of persons with special ability: an exhibition of water colors by the local talent.
5. Movies and Television. professional actors collectively, especially star performers.
This definition, in my opinion, is misused when said to me. Because to me it implies that what I do, is specially natural to me and

What do you think your favorite city will look like in one hundred years?
Architect Rem Koolhaas has completed a “vertical city” complex in Rotterdam, bringing a new style of multi–purpose skyscrapers to the city skyline. Bennett Stein wrote about the new buildings for KCRW’s Design & Architecture blog, calling the creator “the Godzilla of architecture.”
Here’s an excerpt from Stein’s essay:

I noticed a light that I thought was a star until it kept getting bigger because it was coming towards me. I didn't hear anything coming from it but I thought it was a plane or something.

Knowledge and Belief: Agnosticism vs Atheism?Knowledge and Belief: Agnosticism vs Atheism?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a public service announcement!
Is it possible for someone to be both agnostic and a theist? What about both agnostic and atheist? The answer is yes!
The terms 'agnostic' and 'gnostic' speak to a person's level of knowledge concerning the topic. Atheist and Theist refer to the topic - the belief (or lack thereof) in a god or gods. Here are a few examples:
Jerome doesn't know if there is or isn't a god, but he doesn't believe in it regardless. Jerome is an Agnostic Atheist.
Anika claims to know that there certainly is no god at all, and she does not believe in this god. Anika is a Gnostic Atheist.
Kiana claims to know with certainty that god does exist, and he believes wholeheartedly in god. Kiana is a Gnostic Theist.
Charles doesn't know if there is or isn't a god, but he chooses to believe in one anyway. Charles is an Agnostic Theist.

Why manga/anime art Sucks.Right from the start I want to say this; I dont think that all Anime/Manga artwork is bad. Thats just not true, and I really like Anime movies, comic books and artwork. Some of the best stuff is Manga inspired. I got that out of the way so lets get to it:Why manga/anime art Sucks.9 years ago in Art Features More Like This
-The Opinion Corner-
I browsed through the DigitalArt/Fanart/Game/Just In section and I wasnt impressed by what I have seen, so I jumped over to the Popular Corner. And was amazed by what is in there. Almost all ,if not completely all, the art was anime based. And I understand people view it and favorite it, and if only anime gets in there thats fine, but I will be brutally honest, most of that art sucks. And its not just in games category, almost all anime art isnt very good.
And what about the actual Manga/Anime section?
You have seen it, you stopped going to there a long time ago, and only go there from time to time in hope that maybe something

If you have the guts I didn't, to watch the whole video,
then even if you stopped halfway, you'll see the eyes of a raccoon dog, skinned alive, stare into the camera, while clinging to its hopeless life.
For clarification, I am not in anyway a supporter nor am I affiliated with PETA.
So if PETA is another concern and problem, then it's just another one we'll have to fix.
And yes, this specific one is staged, but my point isn't that this is how people skin animals, it's that these animals are dying REGARDLESS of the cause and reason behind it.

He titled it "Yesterday"
He sang it, alone, on the bench, in the park
People passed, and looked
Someone even cried to see Paul miserable
Some people walked by, and hugged him
Some people gave him money
Some people gave advice
Almost everyone did nice things, but no Mimi
Paul was heartbroken.. He didnt know where to turn, how to fix his heart, or anything
Paul even wondered if his heart COULD get fixed
Just then, he started to cry

To Those Who Want To DieTo all those who want to die, disappear, who feel like life won't get better, who feel like life can't get any worse:To Those Who Want To Die3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things will get better. They may get worse before they do, but they'll always get better.
Less than a year ago, this last February, my mom went into the hospital. She was really sick and could have died. My grades were slipping, there was an abusive teacher at my school which gave my principal a large amount of stress that she took out on me, I was getting in trouble at home, my dad was stressing out over my mom, I had no way of contacting my friends outside of school, and it just felt like everything was falling apart, only a couple weeks before my birthday. I just couldn't focus on anything. I was rarely hungry; I just felt numb. I wanted to die.
But only a week later, my mom was released from the hospital. Her doctors had done more tests on her, and she was fine, other than the fact that she was prescribed a crapload of antibiotics. That right there was a huge weight

The Bible isn't originalDid you know that there are so many myths, and other stories out there with very similarities as the Bible. The Epic of Gilgamesh is one of them. Go and look it up.

So, either all of these people are unoriginal, or these things actually happened, but that many people interpreted it differently and made it fit their religion.
I mean seriously, how can you have a myth made many years before the Bible and have the story of "the flood".
It didn't happen in Jerusalem, probably not. Maybe in Mesopotamia, maybe in another area.
