How to cut yourselfGrab the blades, go into the bathroom, and lock the door. Place the blades on the counter and stare at the floor. Take your clothes off and look at the mirror. Imagine a life of hiding and fear. Imagine scars filling your body. Imagine razors blades kissing your sharply. Imagine not swimming, or wearing short clothes. Being hot in the summer, and wearing long sleeves. Sitting on the floor, wondering what went wrong with me? Imagine the names, taunts, and abuse. Imagine the cuts by 1's 13's and 22's. Imagine wanting to kill yourself. Imagine your parents worried for your health. Then one day you finally die, and everyone else wonders why. Now put on your clothes, and throw the blades away. Smile and think about your wonderful day. Unlock the door and hug your family. Cutting yourself leads to a terrible life. Don't let pain fill your eyes. You have a great life right now, you know it's true. Don't ruin it now, your a beautiful you.How to cut yourself6 months ago in Personal More Like This

Why couldn't it wait?
Why'd you have to ask me on a date?
I got stuff to work through
I got future plans
You're my best friend
Supposed to be woth me 'till the end
But what if something happens
What will it ruin?
What would you do if I say no?
Would i be your foe?
would you sill be around?
would i get to see you be happy?
would you ever move on?
would you be gone?
Why me? why now?
Why couldn't it wait?
Why'd YOU have to ask me out on a date?
Why'd I have to fall for you?
When you weren't there to catch me
and you never would be
But that's what you do
you become a girls beau
and then you break her heart
and walk away as if you're not taking her world

Hung out at Panera Bread, Dragon Eats Sun Idea :)So excited about the gallery show, but I won't be too excited, only because I've never had such a visible and open opportunity. As I thought of the Dragon Eats Sun piece, I kept thinking about the Rising Sun Concept over and over again. It's a really inspiring design to reference from when it comes to patterns, and I thought: "Well no one has ever had a Dragon eat the Rising Sun," So I just have fun with that all day. And I don't mean to intentionally disrespect the Japanese Flag design. I love the symbolic nature of the Japanese's spiritual emphasis of the Sun, and the boldness of Honor behind itHung out at Panera Bread, Dragon Eats Sun Idea :)11 months ago in Personal More Like This

Photography (+Thank you note)What is photography to you?Photography (+Thank you note)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Photography is a way of interpreting a single moment in time and capturing the emotions within your picture.
What I find myself struggling with right now, is how to put emotions into my picture.
Why are you taking the picture? What do you want your audience to feel when they view your picture?
That is what I think photography is, and to me photography is not only a way to capture a moment, but to bottle your emotions with it.
I must admit, I have only gotten my camera 3 weeks ago and I am constantly learning, practising and trying out new things!
I just wanted to share with you my feelings on photography and what I want to improve, so hopefully the next photo you see in my gallery will speak out to you! (Not literally O.O")
Also I want to share with you a couple of my all time favourite photographers.
Chase Jarvis http://www.chasejarvis.com/
Zhang Jingna http://zhangjingna.com/ (zemotion on dA)

Dream of the Future.My dreams come and goDream of the Future.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I always stop for a minute to think about it.
But never spent more than 2 minutes with this thought.
Yet this dream I had was different, more vivid.
Confused within, I felt lost within this town.
I saw a face that held familiar memories,
I followed my old friend to another familiar face.
It was her, his girlfriend, my friend.
I looked at their hands to see wedding bands.
Stunned, I smiled brightly and continued to follow them.
They continued to a side door in an ally way.
Half way there I was cut off by yet another face.
It was my best friend.
"What brings you all the way over here in this small town?" She asked.
"I.. Uh... Was just passing by and missed my old pals.." I spoke quietly.
she shrugged, the answer satisfied her enough for now.
We entered through the door and all I could see was elementary kids.
They were laughing, singing, dancing with their parents, and eating with their families.
I sat down with my old friend and relaxed for a bit.
I looked at her h

I love music a lot, but I can't sing/whistle/hum/play instruments/anything musical related to save my life. When I sing, I actually sound like a dying fish. But I love to listen to music, and a few of my favorite bands are A Day to Remember, Never shout never, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, and waaayy too many more.
My bestfriend is gay, and I love him, so when people are homophobic, it really bothers me.
Awkward and damn proud.
SO , here's the real version.
My name is Kayla, I'm 15, and I live in the past. I'm not clinically depressed, but if I had actually talked to my therapist last year about how I was really feeling, I would be. I have terrible anxiety, over the stupidest things. Just going to school every morning, I feel panicky and scared, to the point

For a long time, I thought we have to do a new contest. But I can't donate as much prize as I want beacause all that I get I save for the group to upgrate to Super, so I put it into a waiting list... But yesterday, an idea came into my mind! Let's see!
I know, most of the comments under your pictures are "fantastic", "awsome", "great work", "i like it" and things like that, right? These makes you smile but have you ever wondered why? Why do they say this? I often, and I often miss a longer opinion. Because of this I thought from time to time I'll make a yournal like this where you can link a piece of your work and we'll give them a longer, more detailed comment, or if you have critique option, we give critique!
What you have to do:
Fave this yournal!
Write a comment with your picture's link! Don't forget, you have only one entry per 'Critique my work!' journal.
HellsteedsI decided to put information about my horse breed here, since it was long and I didn't want to make a fatty picture about it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.Hellsteeds1 year ago in Personal More Like This
NOT an open breed. Repeat. NOT an open breed.
Hellsteeds came to be when a war lord wanted steeds for all of his warriors, but was dissatisfied with the "skinny nags of horses" he found at every stables. So, he performed a ritual to a war god pleading for great horses skilled in the ways of war, and cold to feelings of fear and regret. The result was a massive horde of strong, fearless stallions with the power to rend and devour flesh. The horses were so effective that he conquered many lands in only a year's time. However, it was not to last, and soon a growing resistance formed against him and his "horses from hell." One night, a mob stormed his fortress and got to the stables first. They slaughtered as many Hellsteeds as they could. At that point, many thought they were all destroyed an

Slenderman caught on camera? ... :/YEsterday my grandmother found her old film camera in her basement!! She had about 11 shots of black + white film left in it too. She knows that I've been keen to take some film photos for a long time, so she called me up and invited me over. We both went out with the camera and I was really excited. She lives near a forest walk and we both thought it would be a good place to take some photos. It was the first time I've ever used a film camera, and an old one at that!!! She instructed me on how to use the camera, get the right exposures etc etc since it's fully manual. She let me take 7 photos and she took the remaning few.. we got home and my grandad developed the photos in their darkroom.Slenderman caught on camera? ... :/1 month ago in Art Features More Like This

In life.In life your gonna go through challenges. But through every bad turn and fall, it can be your biggest breakthrough as you pull the the strength to get through and it's all worth It; life is worth living, not wasting. So go out there and achieve your dream even if it seems impossible just make that wish and reach for it and keep reaching till you get there because life is too short to daydream about it. Life is about achieving your goals, creating memories and living each second of your life how you want to live it. Write your own story and be proud of what you stand for. Because I believe that every one can accomplish what they believe if they just try and push themselves to succeed.

Feelings and Now.I may as well just write it all out...feelings and emotions can be a scary but beautiful thing kind of like art. I know for a fact I've been scared of every emotion I have from the obvious one of fear and being a lone but sometimes the thought of holding proper feelings again for the first time in a year is scary yet beautiful. I don't want to lose her, even though I haven't asked her to even be mine...I think I'm getting grips with holding my emotions properly together and I'm proud to feel the feelings I do.
