Long-winded health updateSo it's been just over a week since I've had this surgery, and I've had a couple people asking why I mentioned having a big incision on my chest (I mentioned it in passing in my previous update). I think I sorta forgot no one would know much about that. I purposely didn't go into full details before the surgery in favor of not worrying people. I didn't want people to be scared for me and express doom and gloom, because I needed to be optimistic myself. But since it's after the fact, I suppose it's okay to be a bit more open.Long-winded health update7 months ago in Personal More Like This
What you probably do know is that after having had testicular cancer taken out last October, this was a precautionary surgery where they would take the other testicle out (this one didn't have cancer, but due to the kind I had in October, it was at high risk of getting it). This time around, they also removed all of the lymph nodes around my kidneys (although I misheard and thought they said around the heart at first, so it's pr
A rescue dogA few days ago, when I was at open field work in another city 200km away from Warsaw, working as off-road/trail photographer as usually- I got a call about a husky dog in desperate need that is located in MY area. Fully starved dog (just bones), having severe skin issues, bleeding and leaking mold off from skin and fur is falling off found on streets laying down- and needs immediate health attention. I'm not anymore active volunteer in my animal rescue foundation due to life changes, but my instincts of rescuing animals came back. I've responded to the animal foundation and took responsibility of picking up and transporting a husky in need.A rescue dog1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Please Note: These will be pokemon BASED, and will have design modifications to fit the species. They will also have personal touches of my own so as to not copy pokemon, because that's no fun.
I am also putting the finished ones next to the ones that are finished, so you all can see how they've turned out so far!

BullyingA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Bullying4 years ago in Personal More Like This

to reword my other journal (sexualized grem post)because apparently im terribly unprofessional about my journals (i guess being human is not allowed ), so im going to rewrite this in more of a better fashionto reword my other journal (sexualized grem post)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Grem2's are my species, i have the right to speak my mind and tell you what is okay and what isn't. As i have said beforehand, there are young people in this community and I myself do not feel comfortable with people over-sexualizing grems to the point where they are blatantly showing their "crotches" off or showing off their back-ends sexually, then showing them in public. I have had multiple people tell me that it makes them uncomfortable and i for one find it a little weird aswell, so i am snuffing it out before anything gets worse to the point where im having an angry mop after about over sexualized grem art.
I am OKAY with cute butt shots and cute intimate interactions and gore/etc, all that jazz is fine, but im just asking that if they are doing something that is entirely sexualized (showing off their crotch or buttholes

Good job, dumbass. You got a logo I designed for my photography on your fucking leg. As well as the name I go by on multiple sites. Free advertising, I guess? It pays to know the source of an image before just slathering it on your body for the rest of your life. It's especially insulting because I mentioned right in the description that I was going to get it as a tattoo for myself. I hate tattoo shops for just putting whatever design someone walks in with on their body without asking where it comes form just as much as I hate the people who will put an image on their body just because it's "pretty

Raindom Facts - Rain, the Main CharacterGod, I'm bored.Raindom Facts - Rain, the Main Character7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here. Have a Raindom Fact for the sake of being able to share something during this lull. ^_^
So, the story is called Rain because - as you might imagine if you've been reading it all this time - the main character's name is Rain. But she is just one of many characters in an overall rather large cast. So why exactly is Rain singled out? I mean, protagonist or not, she doesn't always take center stage and some arcs have very little to do with her. Couldn't the story just as easily be named after Maria or Gavin or Emily?
This is sort of a throwback to the original fantasy version of the story. Like the current version, the title was simply "Rain". But the original idea was kind of like a first-person story-telling perspective (but as a comic), in that Rain was always present in every scene. Anything going on outside of Rain's vicinity would not be apparent to the reader unless explained to her.

im not saying that everybody that is white is racist because we all know that, but if youre white and saying it yourself you need to stop because it's saying that you defending yourself is more important than black people dying
i dont have the patience or energy to argue why reverse racism isn't real anymore. i fight this garbage all the time on facebook and today has really taught me that some people here are no different.
stop saying not all white people are racist because if your first instinct is to defend yourself when you're not being murdered for being white you are truly awful. you are especially even more awful if you cannot learn from your mistake when told what youve said is a bad thing.
if you cannot defend your misinformed opinion to the point that you have to name a small amount of white people being enslaved by black people some thousands of years ago or wtfever you're pathetic.

I still adore “Treasure Planet” and Jim, but after being a fan for almost 12 years and hundreds of pictures my inspiration has gone on vacation.
In 2012 I suffered from a really bad depression. I felt alone and miserable and wanted to force myself to finally grow up and stop obsessing over animated movies and buying merchandise like a maniac. I knew that’s what made me happy but for some reason thought I had to change because I was getting older and had to act more according to my age. I cried a lot and well, felt like crap. And then I went to the cinema with a friend to watch RotG. And immediately noticed this movie was doing me good. I had the urge to watch it again and again and every time I did it made me happy.

This is where integration comes into play here, combining other species into this world for interaction and world building purposes!
I wanted to know if anyone wanted to integrate their species into Palleth! This way, people can use their species to talk with others, spend time with different species, and generally have a good time altogether. Species integration can make up for some really cool cameos in the future too, so it can be a win/win for everyone!

How a game developer saved my lifeAfter disappearing for a very long while, halting commissions and delaying the creation of OFF-WHITE; I think I owe you guys an explanation.How a game developer saved my life1 year ago in Personal More Like This
At the beginning of August I found myself at a hospital, diagnosed with gallstones. The only effective way of getting rid of them is to remove the whole gallbladder altogether. Unfortunately it quickly got much worse. I got a severe case of cholecystitis and developed a hydrocele. It was suspected that the inflammation started to spread to my peritoneum and liver. Even more unfortunately it didn't stop there. During all the medical examination I went through during the next few weeks it was discovered that everything was in fact caused by gallbladder cancer, which before was wrongly identified as inflamed tissue.
You can probably imagine how devastated I was after getting the news - after weeks of pain I got to know that I had cancer with extremely poor prognosis and had absolutely no money for a surgery.

ReconfirmationFinally saw my surgeon yesterday for a follow-up appointment after surgery nearly two months (this should've probably happened a long time ago, but there was a lot of scheduling confusion and whatnot). While I had already heard everything came up negative, it was somehow reassuring to hear it again directly from her. Yes, I will need to get CATscans from time to time to be sure nothing resurfaces or anything, but she seems very confident that the worst of this is over. Yesterday, was a good day. ^_^Reconfirmation6 months ago in Personal More Like This
