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,
I'll be trying to climb out this darn thing
I just wanted to be human. Ch. 5: QuesadillaI just wanted to be human. Ch. 5: Quesadilla2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
The humans went upstairs for dinner, leaving the robots locked in the basement. This irked Rabbit because she actually locked the door. Like he couldn't just break it down if he wanted to? And of course the yelling and arguing continued. If they had already separated then why did they keep fighting? None of it made sense to Rabbit. The day was practically over and Micheal spent more time talking to her than he did investigating Spine's malfunction. That just left Rabbit to do the real work.
Shaking his head, Rabbit lowered his gaze to his hands. "I wish I knew what to do. What would you do if you were me?" He asked Spine, somewhat hoping that he would answer. He thought it over and tapped his finger tips on Spine's forehead. "I can't see you're saved data without a crossover cable." He pondered, now tapping his own lips in thought. "If only you were in sleep mode. At least t-t-then I could use my Ethernet cord, be on the network..."
Rabbit's eyes grew wide. But there was someone in sle

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

Gravity of Devils [two]
A few months passed, maybe even an entire year before they met again. Jack needed his space, and the Boogeyman gave it to him—after all, he had made children believe in the Boogeyman again, and Pitch felt he owed the boy that much at least.
Pitch never properly thanked him either. He could remember the day perfectly! How Jack had appeared before the children who could see him and told them stories of the hideous Boogeyman who haunted their dreams and closets and hid under their beds till morning.
Those children believed in the Boogeyman then, and their fears fueled the Boogeyman’s return to power temporarily, giving him enough juice to send out at least a few Nightmares to other children—and his power crept back into the darkness, into his very blood and through his veins—and his reign became supreme once more.
And even now, as Pitch stared up at the flurry of ice and the volley of snow balls being pitched to and fro wh
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 Goals3 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.

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.

It had been a very stressful day, and it calmed you down to at least have some time just chilling out by browsing some collections. Your hat was covering the most of your face, and your scarf was disguising the fact that you were here. Your hometown had a bias against girls who played these kinds of games.

Ebony didn't know how long she'd been here for, lying across the floorboards in the dark, like a corpse displayed upon a mortician's table. Her eyes took in nothing—not the fungus spores creeping across the ceiling or the blistered wallpaper. The atmosphere was heavy and foreboding, as if death had seeped into the very bricks and plasterboard, the flesh and bones of the building.
In a way, she supposed it had.
There was a knot of Serpents in Ebony's belly. She could feel them squirming and twisting around her innards. Her fingertips trailed across her ribcage, resting upon her stomach like a mother-to-be.
