anxietyFirst of all.. I didn't expect to gain so much appreciation over this piece.anxiety3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.

BittersweetHey guys, it's been awhile, hasn't it? Here is the "bitter":Bittersweet3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't felt up to writing lately, and unfortunately there was a bit of a tragedy in a very good friend of mines life. I've known her all through public school and high school. We grew up together. Well, unfortunately her little brother took his own life. His funeral is tomorrow. It really hit a nerve with me. I watched that kid grow up, and it's one of those things where I wish I could have known how he felt - I would have had something to say, and I would have told him that I know what he was going through.
As a young teen, I landed myself in the psych ward after I had taken an overdose the night before, attempting to take my own life. Unfortunately, it wasn't the first or last time I had tried. I was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety, and it was something that I had struggled with all throughout highschool and most of my young adult life.
In addition to dealing with depression, I had developed a habit that I w
The Neglected Importance of the Online CommunityWhat is the Worldwide Online Community?The Neglected Importance of the Online Community3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Worldwide Online Community is simply a group of people from a wide variety of countries and continents who come together to share their skills, experience, and/or love for a subject. Online communities are a fairly new faction and are not fully understood, their importance is neglected and may not reach their full potential until the next generation incorporates them more and more. It wasn't until the '90s that the Internet or World Wide Web really became a part of the culture, but in less then 20 years its impact has changed society from top to bottom.
In order to really delve into the importance of the worldwide online community, one must first define what it is. There are hundreds of different definitions of what an online community is, but this statement is generally accepted throughout these definitions.
Worldwide online communities are groups of people who join together on the Internet with a common int
Daily Deviations: How to SuggestI constantly find that many deviants, new and otherwise, simply do not know how to suggest a Daily Deviation.Daily Deviations: How to Suggest7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Just to make sure we are all on the same page here:
Info to Know
The only rule applied to Daily Deviations is that a deviant may not receive more than one Daily Deviation within a period of three months.
All deviants, regardless of popularity, are eligible to receive Daily Deviations.
Popular deviants are still deviants and will not be disqualified on the mere charge of being popular from receiving a Daily Deviation.
Any deviation may possibly receive a Daily Deviation.
This is regardless of the amount of views or favorites it has garnered.
You are ALLOWED to suggest YOURSELF. Just don't abuse this.
The following are not rules on how to suggest Daily Deviations but rather guidelines that help staff capable to select Daily Deviations better and more quickly process suggestions.
House of Hades News!!!Holy mother of gods I just found the summary for HoH and I'm crying so hard i need this bookHouse of Hades News!!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

10 Reasons I Love HetaliaAs a fledgling Hetalia fan, just starting to take my place in the fandom, I've recently been hurt and discouraged by the massive amounts of hate directed towards the fandom. It's really sad that typing something as innocent as 'funny Hetalia' into the DeviantArt search engine, in hopes of relaxing and viewing some humorous comics, generates dozens of raging anti-stamps. Now, I realize that Hetalia has the potential to be controversial. I realize that a lot of the fandom can get out of hand, and acknowledge that there are parts of it I really can't stand (the Rapist France and Pedo Spain things come to mind). And I respect that people have the right to be dislike it, along with any other fandom. The thing I can't accept is the tendency of so many people to flaunt this hatred all over the internet and label an entire fandom as idiotic, racist, sex-crazed morons. It's hurtful, especially to those of us who are new to the show.10 Reasons I Love Hetalia3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I get many questions from people who want to use my photos somehow – I state they need my permission, but I am too busy to answer their notes and comments at the same time. Very stupid situation that is in fact a trap for all those who are polite and really ask for permission
That’s why I decided to create some general rules.
And to make it user friendly, I chose the form of questions and answers.
I hope they fit any situation you might think about, but if you get any idea, please, do not hesitate to comment!
Those rules will be also on the main page of my account and I will link to them through every of my new deviations

Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.Hi people!Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today it is a short journal without photos, sorry.
I would like to give you one important advice, so I hope it can be still useful
I see many people try to sell prints here. And they are often sad they have not sold anything yet.
But at the same time I see they do the same mistake. So:
HOW PEOPLE TRY TO SELL THEIR WORK AS A PRINT?
1. you took a photo (drew a picture). It is nice, so you want to post it as a deviation.
2. you edit it. Making it sharper, more colourful, adding contrast, CHANGING a size to some 850x600px, for example.
3. you post it as a deviation.
4. you look at your deviation and think "hm, it looks pretty cool! Maybe somebody can buy it. I will allow it as a print."
5. you click at "submit as a print" and in "print submission" option you just scroll down and click at "SUBMIT AS A PRINT".
6. now deviation in your gallery has that cool "buy this print" green button and you are excited about somebody buying it.
7. you are disappointed that nobody bought it.
Why I crossplayIt's the male to female crossplays that usually get stranger looks from the crowd. I understand why and I'm actually fine with it.Why I crossplay1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked quite a lot in my years of cosplaying why I like to dress up as a girl at times. I was never able to give a definite answer back then. I suppose it was because I wasn't aware of why I did such a thing.
One reason would be that sometimes, I really just like the character's design. It's a hobby of mine to create things, and being able to materialize something I love makes me happy.
However now I believe I found the core reason of why I do it. Lately I've been delving deeper into doing more complicated costumes such as Capt. Jack Sparrow. In doing those, I realised that it's all about the transformation. Being a costume enthusiast ever since I was little, I've always found a certain joy in being able to turn myself into all sorts of characters. This carried over into my adulthood and I wanted to challenge myself even more.
There's so much prepa
