My Final WordsThis will be my last journal post for a long while. This entire week end has been quite a trip, but in the end I lost a battle I knew I would lose. I have never been good enough for any one. I simply serve a purpose to help every one and no give me anything back. I was raised into it, and will never leave it.
And I have had my heart torn out. By two people who went behind my back and betrayed me. Men are distrustful, and I have finally learned my lesson. So I have decided.
I do not need any one. I need myself, and thats is all I have left to love. My will to forgive has been drained and I just can not do it any more. So I will stay alone. I will spend as much time away from every one else as I can. I will become the recluse I used to be. It was much simpler then.
It is truly all I can do now. Because if I do not I will end up doing something very bad to myself that will hurt more people than I would like. And after people I love have hurt me and become such cowards that they can not co

10) This is not a fashion statement or a way to be cool. It's not a fad.
I hate when people say this. I'm not doing it to fit in anywhere, how many popular kids do you know are cutters? Why would I want to fit in with people who are seen as stupid and lame? Why would I put an unnecessary label on myself in high school? Anyone who cuts to be in the "cool" crowd or does it just to be seen as a "true" goth needs to be slapped hard. It's also not some fad like silly bands or I<3 boobies bracelets. This in not some trade-able scars that are done for shits and giggles, It's serious. Anyone who thinks other wise gives ev
Managing Your Inbox: Some Tips on StreamliningI'm not really an organized person. Yeah, sure, I like to TRY to be one, but most of my attempts to clean house don't stick. The one exception, however, is in my online life.

I posted a poll asking visitors what their inbox looked like on a typical day. As of this writing, of the 52 responses, 35 have full inboxes – that is, somewhere between 200 and up to (or over) 1000 messages to sort through. So about 70% of the voters have quite a lot to page over.
I hear horror stories quite frequently from deviants who are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things passing through their inbox. My personal inbox rarely reaches three digit numbers, and the few times it has, it's always been because something of mine has made the footer. While I can't promise that my personal methods will work for everyone, it n

ALAS, a couple of months back I found QQi, and recently Aniemae pointed it out to me again. I decided to give it a shot and was surprised to find it feels a lot like MSN/WLM.
It supports a range of appealing features such as:
• Custom emoticons
• Exporting and importing emoticons so you can back them up and share them between separate PCs! (epic feature)
• Custom fonts
• Custom themes
• Remote assistance
• Image sharing (through using a nifty 'screen capture' tool within individual IM windows that works like cropping)
• Built in Message History
• Offline messaging
• Offline file sharing
• Appear offline feature and choice to appear offline to select contacts
Tips for Young Writers...with some help from BuffyHello readers!Tips for Young Writers...with some help from Buffy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I spend a lot of time talking with young writers about writing. Whether it’s the art of putting a novel together or ways to break into the industry, I get asked a lot of the same questions. So I thought I’d compile a list of tips here for writers getting started at any age. Maybe you’ve heard some of these before, maybe not. Either way, I hope they help you along your path.
1. Show, don’t tell.
Yes, you’ve definitely heard this before. A million times over. But what does it mean? The difference between showing and telling is the difference between sitting in a cafe in Paris sipping a latte and reading a menu online. You want to immerse your reader. If I’m telling, I’m over-describing, maybe even listing scenery. If I’m showing, I’m slipping in details where they fit naturally.

How did the introduction of Jazz, Crazes and popular media influence the American populace during the early 1920s?
Brilliant question Silverpoint345, well well well firstly the American public heard the music and was like "HELL NAH THIS AINT MUSIC" cos in the 1920s everyone was kinda boring and didn't do much except for talkin about the weather, then after a while they became more open minded and were like "HELL YEAH THIS IS MY KINDA SH*T" and the

What are these dolls?
These dolls are called Ball Jointed Dolls (BJD). A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. In contemporary usage when referring to modern dolls, and particularly when using the acronyms BJD or ABJD, it usually refers to modern Asian ball-jointed dolls. These are cast in polyurethane synthetic resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic. They are predominantly produced in Japan, South Korea and China. The BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime. They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (16 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to b

I discussed it on tumblr as some reflection posts, but I thought it might be nice to share on dA as well. ^^
Always be thankful for the things other people have done for you.
Make sure to tell them! <3
Build trust and kinship with others; life is about reciprocity. What you give out is what you get in return.
When I work hard on something to give to someone else and they do not acknowledge it in any way, it renders it meaningless and shallow.
What worth can I ascribe to something that was not accepted by the intended person? It's a very hurtful feeling.
Give credit where it's due!~
If you can pinpoint the source for something, please take the extra 10 seconds to write down the name of the person who created it.
In my case, I am truly happy when people's art are influenced by my style -- but that happiness is shattered when there is no credit given.

Did u knowWhen you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you 'squeeze' for freshness or softness? Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie.Did u know2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Monday = Blue,
Tuesday = Green,
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow.
So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.
Stop RAPE!I have always been a proud Indian coz I felt it is one country which has unity in diversity. But today I feel ashamed when a "girl" feels utterly unsafe and unprotected to even go out of their house in my country.Stop RAPE!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A nation-wide news of a 23yr paramedical student getting brutally gang-raped in a moving bus in the capital city of India, Delhi shook the nation and every heart of a girl in India. This is not what I wanted to see when I was a child. India is so full with talented individuals and great minds but still they run a dreadful society by infusing fear to a girl's or a woman's mind?
Please stop this right now. A girl has an equal right to breath, talk, walk and have every possible freedom as the other gender has.
Being a guy, I know that we are attracted to females more than they do. But personally I never have the feeling or even have the guts to think of "raping" someone. How can you do something like that to a human being? A guy must understand that raping a girl is not
Modular OrigamiOrigami, literally meaning 'paper folding', is the well-known traditional Japanese art of doing exactly what it says: folding paper. Its goal? Simply to take a flat piece of paper and transform it into something awesome.Modular Origami2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Modular origami is a branch of the art form that allows artists to achieve results they couldn't with a single piece of paper. Two or more sheets are used, and each sheet is folded into identical shapes termed 'modules' or 'units'. Each module is then assembled to create the final sculpture.
While the single piece of paper rule is abandoned in modular origami, all the other traditional rules still apply: no glue, no cuts, no thread, no fastenings. The pieces must be adhered by the creation of flaps or inserts in the individual pieces.
These deviants showcase this technique with some amazing 3-dimensional origami structures.
