I would have included all months in one Article, but the Article would have been too big then. That's why each month will get their own Article.
These were the most popular emotes from January 2011.

On Friendship and Being YourselfYears ago, I had mentioned my thoughts on friendship and I really feel the need recently to talk about once more. No I don't plan on being that deep (it's 8:03 right now as I type this and I am a master and not getting up until 9:00 in the morning) nor do I plan on getting in this HUGE journal about it. I just really feel like expressing my thoughts on friendship- namely on the forming of friendships.On Friendship and Being Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm of the opinion that real friendships are formed naturally. Sometimes they happen automatically. Sometime it happens over time. For me it's a bit of both- I've met friends that I've only talked to once or twice and they are instantly my friends, plus I have friends I've grown to consider friends after quite a bit of time. Thus it really makes me sad to see it when people try to force a friendship on someone. I know it sounds strange but it's happened various times in the past as well as recently.
When you try to force a friendship out of someone it's feels like someone you don't really
Back from Wedding and Honeymoon!These past several months have been so hectic! On top of our big summer conventions we were trying to plan our wedding, which we were working on nonstop to the last minute. I was freaking out a lot in the last month, especially on the night before when I was up until 2am finishing my veil.Back from Wedding and Honeymoon!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Although a few things didn't work out as planned, the wedding day itself was just as magical as I had hoped for. I want to give as much detail as I can right now, but I've decided it might be best to just include information in the pictures and videos as we upload them. It'd be easier and less stressful on me if I can do just a little at a time rather than try cramming it all into a journal XD
For our Honeymoon, we spent a week at Disney World! Since we got to go to the Halloween event at Magic Kingdom, we brought our Terra and Aqua wigs and wore our Keyblade T-shirts. We figured being in full cosplay would limit us to what we could do at the park, and didn't know what to expect with the weather. It
Naruto Secret: Kakashi Cover RevealedWarning: Naruto manga spoilers ahead!Naruto Secret: Kakashi Cover Revealed4 months ago in Personal More Like This
While the story of Naruto has been told to completion, we as fans have so much more to learn about the characters in his universe! Last month it was announced which stories will be told through the official Naruto Hiden (Naruto Secret) book series. This month, new information about those stories have been revealed!
The first book is about Kakashi Hatake and will be titled Kakashi Secret: Lightning of the Frozen Heaven. The story revolves around an an unspecified incident that features a somber Kakashi Hatake, who is the Sixth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. The book will be 226 pages long and make its debut on February 4, 2015 in Japan. Take a look at the cover below.
As you may have guessed, the Kakashi book takes place after chapter 699 of the manga, but before 700. There isn’t any information on if it will be released in North America, however, we expect it will make it to us in some form eventually. The Narut

HATOFUL BOYFRIENDLadies and gentlemen, I found it. THE GREATEST GAME OF ALL TIME.HATOFUL BOYFRIEND2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Introducing, HATOFUL BOYFRIEND.
It's a stereotypical otome game (dating sim), except instead of pursuing hot anime guys, the player pursues...pigeons? Yes, that's right, pigeons. And not even cartoon pigeons, either...badly photoshopped cutouts of real life pigeons.
The plotline is as follows: you (the player) are the only human to attend a prestigious academy for gifted birds (I'm not shitting you). As you make choices throughout the game, you slowly find yourself falling love with one of the feathery male leads. The title is a play on words, combining the Japanese pronunciation of the English word "heartful", and the Japanese word for pigeon, "hato".
Observe some of the encounters that await, and prepare to surrender yourself to the romance~
I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE EXCITED TO PLAY A GAME IN MY LIFE
If you're a fan of parody, absurd scenarios, and so-bad-it's-good humor, I highly recommend incorpora

Today, you may have seen it or not seen it, but Alie(:iconWhisperwings has passed on. She had terminal cancer so it wasn't a surprise but that doesn't mean it didn't hit people hard.
She was amazing, funny, strong.. everything we are and more.
But why should she be in the past tense? She will never die because she is here- vivid in our minds. Vivid on the screen and alive in her artwork with it's bright colors and skillfulness.
I never talked to her. Not even once and yet I know she is a good person who won't let anything take her down- just by reading her writing.
She's optimistic even when everything's falling and tells everyone not to worry about her. That she's ok.
Some may say she fought the battle and lost.
I say she won.
She died in the end, but don't we all die?
She won because even though she knew the sands of time would carry her away soon she didn't let it change her. Everyday she keeps strong and open. Generous and kind. She knows tha

I've been dying with laughter because of some pokemon comics lately, and Wes1234 and me are making a comic together. He wrote down the stuff and I'm going to draw it. XD
Uhh ALSO! I donated blood for the first time yesterday. I'm not a big fan of needles but I like helping saving people's lives. In about 6 weeks I have to come back and donate about 1,5 Litre. Quite nervous about it, but hey, it could save someone's life. Wooh positive things.
I havent been too active with animation lately (for those of you who still don't know about my new yt account, it's FireLaena), but I'll try to get back into it. The new ssswarriorcats scenes still need to be done and I admit I haven't exactly put my heart and soul into it as it's a lot of work and I like to enjoy my free time.

Oi people - think before you click!Yesterday I got spammed to hell with messages linking to different variants of this image:Oi people - think before you click!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
They can have slightly different graphics or contain different links but the message is always basically the same - go to this page and you'll receive 20 000 .
I have to ask the question - how dim do you have to be to fall for it?
Ok let's see - we have an image hosted on a profile that is 1 day old and asks you to visit a website with a strange url with a promise of a financial reward on an another website. How do you even imagine that would work? And now, of course, people start crying that their computers got infected with malware. Which is great - every genius who fell for this obvious phishing scam deserved it. I hope your shitty computer burns and you along with it.
I know this is a no-duh for 90% of people reading it but for the sake of the rest lets revise what we all should know about online phishig. And before you go all:
No, no you can't.

Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this.
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing,

Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHelloLove of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves
Thank you for every it would help me to share this
An Unexpected Update...Hey guys! Been awhile!An Unexpected Update...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First off I want to thank everyone for sending me birthday wishes in various places (here, on facebook, and on tumblr). You guys are all sorts of awesome.
Second off I want to apologize for the lack of activity on here. It seems that tumblr has become my main hangout (blame the app as the dA app is pretty terrible IMHO), however I do still plan on keeping you guys updated an informed. I also still plan on putting cosplay pictures here first before anywhere else. However I will probably be posting WIP cosplay stuff on my facebook page, my personal facebook, twitter, and instagram I will also be constantly updating you guys there.
Speaking of cosplay... I have two cons that are (for sure) Lined up this cosplay season. C2E2 in Chicago IL and Colossal Con in Sandusky OH. I'm going to try to hit up CosplaCon for a day or two in Jeff (as all of my buddies plan on being there).

I don't know if many of you keep track of my twitter or my tumblr. If you haven't I'll fill you in really quickly:
Right before I graduated I applied for a Project Archaeology class- a educational group whose goal is to try to spread awareness of archaeology and historical heritage. One of the things offered was a chance to do some field work at a place called Lone Jack. Many of you Civil War buffs known that it was a pivotal point in the war in which the US realized that their current tactics were not working against the Confederate forces. It was also a spot where Cole Younger saved the life of Emory S. Foster, a Major who later repaid the favor when Younger was imprisoned and convinced the justice system to put Younger on bail. Needless to
