on College and Life GoalsWould you consider buying a plane ticket before you know where you even want to go? Crazy, isn't it? But many artists consider taking on art school without a strong life goal. Without defining what you want most out of life, you'll never achieve it, and college certainly won't supply it. College is to supply you with the means to accomplish your goal, and if you don't have a strong goal, you'll flip-flop majors hoping to scrape up motivation along the way. By the end of it, you'll have gone through 4 (or more) years of indecision, having wasted a lot of money and time without having an idea of where to go in life next.on College and Life Goals4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
What, then, makes a strong life goal? Is it wanting to work at Disney? Is it wanting to create a famous comic book? Or maybe you want to just be a famous artist so you can rub it in the faces of all those who made fun of you in high school? These aren't life goals. If anything, they're short term goals, because they can be accomplished, finished, and done. A life goal is

You touch my upper arm as you pass by me and I remember the distribution of pressure down to the square millimeter eleven months later, when I am far from you and as I toil away at the papers shielding my desk (and my heart, perhaps) from view.
I write you a sweet story in my head.
I write you volumes.
And you will never know.
But you should have guessed.
There is no romance here.
There is only the clacking of keys (and the carefully calculated press of fingers to palm when you ask for a pen) (so subtle I almost fool myself into believing it could be overlooked) (do you overlook it, I wonder?)

I am in love not with you but with your authority, your meekness, your self-consciousness (unwarranted; you put the stars to shame) which you hide so well but so terribly.

You know, what's not fair?
Being unable to control your own life
It's true, that you can choose who you want to be
Who you want to be with
What your going to do
But he annoying part is when you know what you want
what you need, and your desires and wishes and dreams
And being stuck waiting.. On things that you can't control
And not knowing what's going or happen or why your goals
Cant be accomplished in other words I hate waiting on others
It's awful and frustrating not being able to control everything.
Unfortunately that's part of life . And this happens to everyone
We all have those stupid pot wholes in our rode to life and we all fall into them..
Even so, Why the heck do I have to have a pot whole too?!
Couldn't everyone else have one except me?!!!
That's what I consider unfair!
Blegh! It sucks!
Now if you all excuse me,

Disclaimer: Not mine. Don't sue.

Every so often I trotted. Eventually, I'd just fall into the same slow stride, snapped to attention by another gust of frozen air. I was still only halfway home, and it was hard to tell the difference between ten minutes and three hours when it's that cold. And maybe when you're in love.

An Analysis of Deviant Art's AsshatteryAn Analysis of Deviant Art's Asshattery4 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
As many of us are well aware, there are many fundamental issues with the way Deviant Art functions as a website. The site is often slow or all-out unresponsive, people have no privacy and protection, and other problems exist that the staff simply doesn't care to resolve. Despite these problems and many others, the most we see in the way of site updates is aesthetic tweaks and piddly, unnecessary destination re-routes.
As far as I can gather, there are four basic issues with Deviant Art that desperately need to be changed. There are probably more, but they will be saved for a later article if they are brought to my attention. Each issue I see will be discussed and solutions will be proposed. It is not necessarily my hope to receive a Daily Deviation on this, and I certainly don't expect the staff to actually take it into consideration, but I do hope to at least share my thoughts on the issues I've experienced in my 2.5 years as a De

"So... You're taking Conan back overseas with you?" A teenage female sat on a couch, across from an older woman with dark hair. The teenager was wearing a high school uniform, a blue blazer, green necktie, white shirt, and blue pleaded skirt. Her crystal blue eyes seemed intent, curious, and inquiring. But that masked the real emotions she was having: remorse, worry, loneliness, and worst of all: Reluctance.
The other woman was dressed up in a female business suit, but with a ruffled, lacy white neckpiece. Her hair was done up in a bun. She gave a small, curt nod.
"Yes. We can finally bring him with us. My husband and I found a very good school for him to go to as well. So you needn't worry about his education. He's old enough to take care of himself now too." The woman smiled warmly.
"Oh. Alright then. I was betting Conan was getting anxious and homesick as well. He's very good at hiding his feelings, but I'm pretty sure he missed his parents very much." The girl replied. What are

"Red, parry that!"
The red-clad swordsman tried to slide his whole body to the right, but the swift motion of Blue's sword came so fast that Red couldn't help but fall, failing his own parry. Blue grumbled in annoyance as he put his Four Sword inside of its containment and shook his head. Red looked to him with a wave of disappointment in himself.
"You need to learn how to read your opponent's moves," Blue started to explain grumpily. "You also need to know the right moment to strike. Whilst attempting that, there has to be no hesitation. You're also a small guy, so you need to take speed as your advantage, understand?"
Red nodded slowly as he tried to gather his determination once more, but to no avail, he couldn't. Fighting brutally was not his style. He just couldn't manage to get up to Green, Vio, and Blue. Blue let out a sigh and started to walk off, leaving Red to l

You would come to me and ask me how I was doing
"How are you doing?"
Thus is the everyday question asked by a person to another
But instead of the everyday answer of,

I'd go on to say that it's a lovely morning today
The sun was beating on my window this morning
The chirping of birds waking me before the alarm
That it's not too warm, yet not too cold
That today's weather is lovely
And you'd agree and I'd point out that you got a new haircut
That it really suited you,
Better than what it had looked like before
You'd give your thanks with a nod of the head
And even though I had done nothing to my own hairstyle
You'd still say that it's looks better than ever
And I'd give my thanks with a bob of the head
And I'd tell you that it was starting to smell like winter
You couldn't tell though could you?
You can smell rain coming,
But not the winter air

I've often heard it said that a person's first kiss is one of the most important, meaningful and precious moments in that person's life. I know of too many people that would disagree with that. Not me though; I can totally relate.
Giving your lips for the first time to someone, in a way you never did to anyone else, for the sole purpose of sharing one of the most intimate forms of contact possible between two people...
I've often heard it said I'm an overly romantic person; I can relate to that too.
I suppose you can say that's why I'm so happy my first kiss happened the way it did. I'm pretty sure it was his first kiss too, so you can imagine how happy I am about this, even though in the end, nothing came out of it.
Oh, don't give me that look. I'm a hopeless romantic, that much I know; it

Usopp erupted from his seat and smashed his knuckles against the top of Luffy's head. "I'm alive, you idiot!" He barked.

The Punk and the Professor ::FrUK::Arthur had to admit, Francis had done a pretty good job of fixing up the spare room. He'd given the Frenchman free use of everything in his country home, including the giant storage shed. Naturally he'd found quite a bit of scholarly things in there. Student's desks, a teacher's desk, and an old blackboard decorated the room. Admittedly the desks were a bit small for Arthur, being an adult and all, but it set the scene quite well.
