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,

Death Note: Another Other Note -1--1-Death Note: Another Other Note -1-3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

So...I met Phil today...erm...It was around 7:00 P.M and my mum wanted me to go to the market really quick. (Only about a five minute walk)So...I met Phil today...erm...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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. .__________________________________.
Kill me now I punched Phil. I punched PHIL.
Our conversation went something like this:
Me: Wha! *Punch*
Me: Oh My god! I am so sorry I didn't know that you were Phil! I thought you were some random guy on the street I am so so so sorry.
Phil: It's alright!! *awkward laugh* I would have done the same thing.

How to stay MotivatedHow to stay Motivated.How to stay Motivated1 year 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

the people there are also made of pearls (not the same pearl as the planet), and there isn't any plants/food/regular people/animals/aliens there because there isn't need it, but there is water mainly so the people can take baths
the only "living" creatures are these special kind of oyster that the pearl people use to make more people

This might be a rumor or just something I made up, but I think there's a reason that they put NaNoWriMo in what, for many of us, is one of the most chaotic times of the year.

An Expose-Lit Guide
Participating in competitions is one of the easiest ways to gain good exposure around dA. If you win a competition, you can get some amazing prizes such as points (which can be spent in the dA store), features (which will give you even more exposure after the contest has ended), subscriptions (which give you access to some great features of dA that are unavailable to non-premium members).
The purpose of a contest is to get as many people involved as possible, meaning that a great number of people will be seeing your work!
Quick Tips for Success!
Introduce yourself to the host--it will leave a very good impression, both for the contest and for building a relationship that will last as long as you are on dA!
Read the rules really carefully to give yourself the best chance--Be sure your entry follows every rule and that you haven't left
Community loveI just caught up reading the more than 700(!!!) messages you left me at my last journal and I'm pretty much left speechless.Community love1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I initially posted the message to give some clarity to the fact that I'm offline for days sometimes, and that it takes me a while to read my messages (as if it doesn't take time already, considering the amount of messages I receive). Since it's the internet, I didn't actually expect people to care. Let alone; so many people.
Apparently people send messages for me to DAcompliments, or even made journals to show their support to me.
Which is really kind, but it also surprises me. Don't get me wrong. I'm more or less used to getting tagged. Mostly for my journals. Occasionally even for my art --

Hiding/Showing Scars in PublicHello guys. This is my first topic of hopefully many to come.Hiding/Showing Scars in Public1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As a self harmer, hiding your scars/wounds can be the most annoying, but hardest thing. You always find yourself worrying about how to hide it, and finding ways to hide it. Especially in the summer, this can be a hard thing. Because you don't want to sweat your face off, but at the same time, you're too worried about someone seeing what you did to yourself.
Showing your scars and coming out of your shell can sometimes be overwhelming. You're so concerned about what others will think, but showing your scars could be awareness.
A lot of people still don't know what we go through and hiding it doesn't help. Your scars are a part of you, and they are in the past. You should be proud of what you survived. If people ask you about it, just stay calm and try to explain the best you can. If you don't want to talk about it, say that it's something that happened in the past and you don't want to talk about it. People

But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.

I hope the details help you in making even better submissionssuggesting DD's (daily deviations)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Everybody on DeviantArt seems to know about the Daily Deviations, or DD's. The handful of artworks that makes it to the frontpage every day. The artworks that are shown at the bottom of the site all day long, and get loads of exposure. I guess they're the wet dream for many people on DA.
DD's are usually a reason for discussion. I can't even begin to count the topics on the forums that are about why some deviations are chosen over others, and how the quality of those deviations keep declining year after year. Not many people know, however, that's it's not entirely up to the staff which works are picked. And that we can have our own vote on this.
So I can have an influence
