Please (Don't) Hate MeIf I told you a lie
But it made you smile
Would it still be a sin?
If I opened the door
But turned you away
Would you still come in?
If I sliced my skin
But it didn't hurt
Would it still be wrong?
If I acted all brave
But couldn't face it
Would I still be strong?
If I tied my noose
Around a tree's open arms
Would it be an embrace?
If I left tonight
And begged you stay
Would you still give chase?
If I committed sin
But hurt nobody
Would I be welcome above?
If I do something you hate
But only for your good
Could it still be true love?
Why I Think Self Harm Awareness Day is BULLSHITIn case you didn't know, today (Friday the first of March) is Self Harm Awareness Day. And, in case you didn't pick it up from my journal's title, it is pissing me off beyond belief.Why I Think Self Harm Awareness Day is BULLSHIT2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why is it doing this?
Well, it's no secret on here that I cut myself. So, as a self-harmer, I find today both extremely offensive and, more importantly, triggering. The most I've seen of it today is people posting photographs of their cuts (something that I feel is never acceptable and would only ever be done for attention) and non-cutters posting patronizing bullshit about how we must 'stay strong' or 'keep fighting'.
Newsflash, dickwads, we're cutters; not fucking retards who need your help to cross the fucking street. We are not charity cases, we are not idiots and we most certainly do not want damn sympathy from do-gooders who would probably be the first to condemn someone if they saw them cutting.
If you want my opinion, today is not about self harm awareness, but rather sympathy,

My lack of close meaningful human companionship has done a number on me for some time, as my current situation contributes to my status as a perpetual loner. Even though I do occasionally experience moments of triumph over it, it is still perhaps the most difficult thing I have yet to fully overcome in my life. But seeing how I fare with the weight of social issues will be a matter of time. All I can do for now is keep on walking for Him, "alone" or not, and let Him bring healing in due time to this slow-healing scar in my heart. For walking alone still doesn't stop me from helping others and doing good, even when it sometimes hurts to be that lonesome lamb surrounded by wolves and goats. God will help me overcome the days of my life and use my weaknesses for

Can you stop being a whiney attention whore for once in your life, and quit relying on 12-15 year-old kids on a public art site to validate your existence (that's all your DA post was. Don't kid yourself thinking it was meant to be something else)? Your art hasn't gotten any better since your hiatus, and instead of trying to improve it you either sick your fans to give you attention or tell them to attack your mean bullies. Your Brental Floss strips are getting uglier each time you churn one out, and to add insult to injury, you, Brent, and Dan can't tell a joke (People on ED edit your strips to make funnier jokes. Let this sink in your head for a while). Apparently you learned nothing from your "hiatus" after seeing that DA blog, as I'm trying to figure out how each Brental strip keeps getting uglier because that's the only comic you're fo

It kinda feels different, him not being here. Almost like a large weight has been lifted off my shoulders. But...at the same time....I feel like I've done something bad. But in the end, I guess it turned out all right.
So...last night, in my room, I had gotten into yet another one of my fights with my dad. Only THIS time, my mom had caught him in the act of slapping me. She was so shocked...and then my aunt came. And she basically told both my parents what my dad has done to me for the past 10 years.
It was probably one of the worst fights I've ever had. We were all just screaming and swearing at each other. My dad kept trying to play the innocent card, but really, it was me, my mom, and my aunt against him.
And then at one point I couldn't take it anymore, and I ran out of my room, grabbed my mom's keys, and got into her car and drove away as fast as possible. I just did NOT want to be in that house ever again, under the same roof with him...
I didn't drive far....I onl

Nakajima. Nakajima Ayumi is the name of the girl that sits in the big leather chair across from me, her big gray-blue eyes glossy from the tears that threaten to stream down her pale face. She's a small, gentle child with light brown hair that falls past her shoulders. If I had to guess, I'd say that Ayumi-san is about the age of fourteen, possibly in her first year of high school. She's definitely a cute girl, no doubt about that, however, there is only one flaw that this sweet child holds. Nakajima Ayumi is the young mastermind behind the Schoolhouse Massacre Cases. This gentle child has actually killed off half of the population from Hideaki Memorial High School, a school located on the southern parts of Shikoku. I'm stunned though. Ayumi-san has turned herself to the police and informed them of these crimes she committed, however, the police didn't believe the girl due to the pure innocents
Watch out for ExaltGodIt's really sad that it has to come so far that I need to make a journal to warn people to watch out for ExaltGod . The Bible tells me to warn a person who is a heretic/teaches false doctrine/ once or twice and then have nothing to do with them anymore.(Titus 3:10) Why? Because such people are dishonest and all your efforts during arguing become in vain. So I will direct my attention to the people who might be or have been influenced by ExaltGod's teachings.Watch out for ExaltGod3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I guess many will be surprised why I'm attacking some Christian dA member who is known for making a lot of the Christian stamps out there. Yes, she does make a lot of good christian stamps that I agree with and was one of the reasons I watched her, but she's made several stamps and journals about certain beliefs she has that I as an honest Christian just have to disagree with. I've often tried to explain her but stubborn as she is she never accepts it. So I will list some things ExaltGod believes, and then explain why it's w

DA COMMISSIONS: WTF?I wanted to share this post I've seen on Tumblr. As a professionnal artist, I already know that I underprice my commissions. When you are a freelance, a drawing is generally 500€ to 1000€ when you're a beginner. On DA, I generally sell them at 30/50€. What to think about the new commission system, knowing that I'm already leaving my commissions for a low price?DA COMMISSIONS: WTF?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You can easily understand: why do you open commissions then?
Well,I love drawing for other people, and most of commissionners don't even know the real price of a drawing (now you know!). But when I open commissions, this is because I've got the time, because I love to share with commissionners, to know their universe, OCs...and because it helps me to buy new fabric for reenactments too, for sure. But... Well... Shame on you DA! O_o
How can you sell a service for only 0.2/0.4$, knowing that DA takes 20% too?! O_o
It may be a good news for commissionners, but DA, you're killing the artists by making people think that a drawing cos

The art of improvement5/4/2015 UPDATE: Added preface at the beginning and Inspiration at the end! added some thoughts on some other things I wanted to share.The art of improvement10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, so this is a comment and question I've been receiving a lot from people!
How did you improve so fast?
Firstly, I want to say I do not think of myself as a professional artist, teacher or someone who "knows the secret to becoming a master artist". These are just things that I have picked up over the years, and noticed so I thought I might as well share my experience with improvement in effort to help others find their own paths of improvement and learning as artists. There are still many things I have to learn, and wish to improve about my own art! The path of an artist is never ending, in my opinion!
I consider the beginning of my journey when I withdrew from college. I had decided to take a year off from school, to explore myself more as a person, gain confidence and rethink my path that I wanted to take in school. Of course,
A brief history of FellaWe all know Fella. If you have been a member of deviantArt for at least 1 day it's quite probable you've encountered him at least once, he's everywhere! And this shouldn't come as a surprise, he's dA's mascot after all! But how much do you know about him? Let's take a look at a Brief History of deviantART's mascot.A brief history of Fella1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest.
Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time
How to stay MotivatedHow to stay Motivated.How to stay Motivated5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m writing this article for the type of people who say that just can’t find motivation to:
Make a portfolio
Finish a painting
Work on their personal project
I got three tips I’m about to write, and it’s just advice and things that I found useful for myself. If you are capable to do any of these things you should definitely try them.
Fear. Get rid of it. If you are fearful of the outcome it will unmotivate you immediately. Just finish whatever it is and think about how you can improve after. If you can’t see what you need to improve ask someone else to tell you. There is always room to improve, and if you go into a critique with an open mind you will grow exponentially.
Think of it like this. If you were running one lap, and half way through you stopped because you were afraid you were going to throw up or pass out, you will never really know how fast you can run that lap. You didn’t push yours

So you know I was walking to the market and I was wearing my AmazingPhil shirt on too. I was also a little bit nervous because I don't like being alone so just imagine me being a little nervous walking alone so anyways.
I was maybe half way there and I felt a hand on my shoulder. Yup and I was pretty freaked out by then so I turned around really quickly and punched the person who put the hand on my shoulder.
Yup, I punched them in the arm, pretty hard too.
It was Phil. .__________________________________.
