1) I woke up this morning and saw my shadow on the wall. Naturally, I panic. Naturally, I have a muscle spasm because i freaked out. So I punched myself in the face. Strike one for Mikki.
2) After this beautiful moment of my own abuse toward my face, I walk into the kitchen to get food. I find food, I eat food. I enjoyed the food. And suddenly A;JBG;KSDJGB;SKDJGBS. my fork scrapes the plate. One of the worst sounds, i'd say. So I started choking on my last bite of burrito. I survived, though. Wooooohoo.
3) i ran into a door. A closed, clearly visible door.
4) I nearly dropped my glasses in the toilet. I didn't, because of my SUPER FAST NINJA SKILLS OF DOOM THAT YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE AWESOMENESS OF, but i almost did. and that's bad enough.

Yes it will be a points for feature but what is SO DIFFERENT from the other features that people are offering. I have been studying it for sometime and its like you pay them and they will just put your avatar on their donation section and it says (watch them , check them out) THATS IT ?! And personally I have checked out with one of my friends here , the end result , it doesnt really brings traffic to their pages at all as their profile is already mixed and mashed with many others on that miserable donation section .
What I will do is , I will need to talk to you regarding many things . Like how you started arts , how you get on to DA , whats your style/personality and whats your goal etc. Many many things

While the majority of the people reacted very positively towards the tips & tricks I shared, there were also some very hostile reactions that ideas like that would encourage you to be something you're not.
I'd like to elaborate on that.
First of all, these tips are basically science.
I didn't just randomly think them up. Most of the points are things that have been proven through marketing- and usability research. This whole marketing thing, however, is a field many artists are for some reason unfamiliar with, so people don't take it into account when wondering why they don't get the exposure they think they deserve. They often undeserving think it's their art that sucks, and that's a shame.
The reason I post this stuff, is mainly because I want people to know.

A Friend in NeedA girl close to my heart has recently come into a rough situation. In December, she lost her dad. In January, her mom found out that she is gay. Now, her mom wants her out of their house. She's fifteen. She's a sophomore. She can't get a job to support herself because she's too young, and she no longer has a parent to rely on. Her girlfriend lives on the other side of the state and can't support her either. Please, if you can spare anything, help her out, I've included a link below.A Friend in Need1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Lyric Poem Game (give it a try)!How To Play: Put your iPod/iTunes/Spotify/Pandora/music player of some kind on shuffle, and then write the first lyric of each song that comes up. Do this for twenty songs, and you'll create a poem!Lyric Poem Game (give it a try)!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
NO SKIPPING, you must use whatever song pops up no matter how silly, nonsensical, or embarrassing it makes your poem! And you must use the lyrics in the order they pop on on shuffle.
You can structure the stanzas however you want and add punctuation, or the occasional "and" or "but", but no altering of the lyrics themselves is allowed. You can end up with a pretty interesting little poem!
Okay, let's go, here's mine! If you can name all of these songs I will love you forever and always.

Her mother told me today that she is still backwards and pretty awkward around people but she's getting better. I assured her that I tried to bring her daughter out of her shell, and she smiled and said to me, "Oh I know—she talked about you everyday after school. Kayla did this, Kayla said that. Kayla brought me into this prank…"

I always figured she thought I was annoying and merely put up with me.
But now, all I can think is, "Wow—someone thought I was awesome enough to tell the closest people to them about. MEEEEE."

Happy Birthday Gaara!"This is where it all starts for me. Starting with this small bond. I too want to become someone who is needed, instead of a weapon that is feared. And as the Kazekage of Sunagakure."Happy Birthday Gaara!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Gaara has a strong will to protect everyone in his village. Every Kage feels this way, but with Gaara it’s a different kind of strong will. He was feared by the villagers for years and turned into a someone who only lived for himself. Someone who killed for blood lust and never cared about anyone else. After his encounter with Naruto he faced the fact that even a jinchuuriki is able to have bonds. This changed his life and made him into the amazing Kazekage he is.
