Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls).

I know this is a mid week journal, but I haven't actually wrote one in a while I've just done meme's because I was bored out of my mind. But this time I've actually got news!!
Ok first of all because I didn't mention it before, I came a worthy second in :iconwritingmadefun: Halloween zombie contest. I am very happy as I never thought I would have even made it to the final five, but to actually come this close to winning. So congrats to the winner, and I thank the group very much.
But now, because I still can't even believe it's actually happing, the big news.
I, yes me, the plain little sixteen year old from Ireland is actually going to have three of my poems published!!
Yes you heard it right, freaking published!!! In a actual book!! How crazy is that?!
I still can't believe it, I only submitted my work with the thought that "I'm too young, too amateurish, and that they won't like my stuff" but wouldn't you know they liked it and chose three!
KINGDOM OF DAWN: CHAPTER 1Chap. 1: To Find A DragonKINGDOM OF DAWN: CHAPTER 17 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sehtmeht scratched his neck as his ears went flat against his head. His black robe flowed from behind him as he paced his tower floor. So many leads and all of them were dead ends. He needed to find them, and he needed to find them soon.
Umbra, his assistant, was laying down watching her master worry himself to a massive wreck. She lowered her head onto her paws and tucked her wings in close as she gave a sigh.
This was not the first time Sehtmeht tore himself apart over a legend, but this so-called legend was based more in fact than a fairy tale told to hatch-lings. This legend was centered on two very real dragons that disappeared after defeating a mighty enemy… and her master was close to finding one of them.
Sehtmeht stopped pacing and was now hovering over a table with various books, scrolls, and maps, his ears still flat against his head. Umbra walked over to him, her black body reflecting the glow from the light crystal that illuminated the room.

Armageddon Expo 2012 (IM NOT SCARY)Last weekend I went to Armageddon Expo in Melbourne, this is the third time I've been to Melbourne this year. I swear I am already half a Melbourner, I know my way around. I know some locals there, took the trams for the 10th time (oddly enough still don't know how to pay..). Unfortunately I have no idea where the delicious food is at the last few times.. luckily this time the Melbourne knowledgable Taroufish :icontaroufish: opened the pandora's box and showed me to a whole new world of wonderful food. I had chicken schnitzel in a place called Schnitz, BEST FREAKIN SCHNITZEL I HAVE HAD MY ENTIRE LIFE, so good I had to go there twice. Also had Potato Spud, its good but not as good as my local one, had some amazing fries from The Lord of the Fries (Which took me a while to get its a pun of The Lord of the Flies…), and had some hot dogs. I also got to see Dat Datdatdatdat :iconmynameisdat: and his girlfriend :iconMidgiee: and Andrew :iconxxbrstarxx:, they introduced a brilliant TaiwaneseArmageddon Expo 2012 (IM NOT SCARY)7 months ago in Personal More Like This

This message is from both of them, but from Michele directly since I'm only friends with her on facebook. There was too much to express without taking away from their actual response, so I decided to screencap her message so you can actually see it. And don't worry Speedy, I'm going to correct her and say that YOU were the original mastermind behind this. I only helped explain their actual story and told you we should do it when you came to me with the idea.Vic and Michele's MMBA Message!3 months ago in Personal More Like This

That I could nurse rhymes like im king cole,
and make this bitch look down a sink hole,
and be like This ain't madness this is limbo,
I will split and rip you like a spring roll,
maybe like a pink hole,
i beat it up like kimbo
ye i smoke that Grim dro, mix with tint gold,
til I see symbols Kindle
in my minds eye so simple,
My rhymes are visuals
Turn Time to riddles
Then feel tides of ripples,
Align the middle
In a heavenly state
As I unleash my chakras through my seven gates
Then levitate, my mental state
Let my spirit generate, a gentle shape, until I'm dead awake,
water rain and heavy quakes,
wind and fire figure 8s,
the four elements, elevate,
my every shape, when I meditate
im like a heavy weight, deadly ape ,
who never hesitate, for heavens sakes
Listen you wouldn't last a week,
You a fast defeat,
while I'm spinning rapidly,
in my center of gravity, passively,
with the masteries from the Galaxy
actually my brain is a DMT factory

Fullmetal Alchemist Legacy Volume 1, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Legacy -The Making Of- Art Book were presented to Vic this weekend at last, and as I promised I have his reactions recorded for you all to see.
For those of you who don't know, the DA Rangers put together a simply amazing comic book based after the events of Fullmetal Alchemist, it was all just a thought from Vic at a convention several months ago after he was asked what he would do if he were to continue the story. We created a 1st volume of the comic, which will continue until the story is complete, and a production art book, which is just filled with all the love that you guys put into the project.
Vic wanted me to personally say this to all of you, so here is his message:
"Please tell the DeviantART Rangers that I love and appreciate them. I am simply speechless."

The first project from my Resolutions list that I'm focussing on completing is the Gasarasrevolution sketchbook. It will be an A5 book filled with illustrations, drawings, sketches, doodles, manga pages, lineart, tutorials - all the random that you said you'd like to see. And I'm holding you to the declarations from some of you that you wanted to see 'all things Gasara', okay? Some of the old doodles I've found... They make me laugh, that's all I'm saying. It should be fun.
Anyway, I'm bringing this up because I realised that some of you wonderful people might like to get involved too. I've had a vast number of fan art drawn from To the Soul and In Fang + Thief / Boys Over Faeries over the years and thought it would be nice to share something like that in the bo
