everyone look at this birdHeyoo! I just got back earlier today from China and HK :> still really loopy, jetlagged, and slightly sick at the moment. (sorry if I'm bringing any scary asian flus into the Americas lalala..)everyone look at this bird4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I got to experience pretty much everything you guys mentioned in the last journal xD though not to such extremes in some cases. Overall everything was ok. China was cool and HK of course is shopping heaven. I'll make a better post later after I sort out all these photos. Most of the pics I took are of weird things... =3=
But anyway before that!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I was in Shanghai, this little sparrow (?) flew over and landed near me, so I approached it like I always do when I spot birds, expecting it to fly off when I try to poke it..but it didn't 80! So I picked it up.
Sorry for the crappy photos, my dad took them and he never focuses on the right thing OTL
I carried it around with me for the rest of our time in that area, but then left it behind cause I c

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.
Your portfolio should be a r

In this raffle happens something that wasn't happened to me : one of my close friends won ;v;
Around of deviantart there are many many many fake raffle/giveaway/contest that people did only for visibility and every time some of their friend won , I usually don't participate because it's tiring know to never have a chance.
In my previous raffles people I don't know won my prize and I was really happy for them , because everyone need to have the same chance of each other ;v; , this time I was really really surprised to see the name of my friend , I have to be really honest to you , I think to choose another name becase "oh no people can think I cheated" but this would be very dishonest and unfair to her and I

Save the Seals / PetitionsSave the Hawaiian Monk SealSave the Seals / Petitions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hawaiian monk seals are the only pinniped species (seal, sea lion, or walrus) that is found exclusively in the United States. The monk seal faces impending extinction (within 50 years) as a result of habitat infringement, entanglements, contaminants, food limitation, and other threats. In addition to contributing to biodiversity, monk seals are a top marine predator and play a vital role in the ocean ecosystem; their loss would likely have ecosystem-wide repercussions.

Help Hollywood Actor Pierce Brosnan stop the navy's attack on whales.
Twenty-five years ago, under strong international pressure, in which Jacques Cousteau was a key leader, the International Whaling Commission enacted a moratorium on international commercial whaling. But using the justification of local traditions or supposed scientific goals, Japan, Norway and Iceland bypassed the rule and just slaughtered 25,000 giants of the sea.

Save Elephants from Train Accidents in IndiaThis week, a passenger train in eastern India plowed into a herd of elephants. Seven of the animals were killed, including two babies, and at least ten others were seriously injured.Save Elephants from Train Accidents in India2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Though the terrified herd ran away at first, they eventually returned to the railway tracks to mourn for hours before forest guards and railroad workers drove them away again.
Railway authorities have repeatedly ignored requests from the forest ministry department to reduce their speeds inside the elephant corridors. As a result, at least 50 elephants have been killed by trains since 2004 in West Bengal state alone. Ironically, Indian Railways' mascot is an elephant calf.
These intelligent, compassionate animals deserve to be protected from suffering these horrible deaths. Tell India's railway authorities to implement safety measures to stop elephants from getting struck by any more trains!

Wolves Petitions / Save the WolvesDemand more public hearings for the future of gray wolves!Wolves Petitions / Save the Wolves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) continues to pick and choose when it comes to gray wolves.
They chose to ignore America's plea to halt the official proposal to delist nearly all gray wolves in the Lower 48. They chose to ignore 16 prominent wildlife scientists, all of whom expressed deep concern around the delisting.
Save Montana's Wolves
Currently, there are two wolf issues that people find confusing: 1) The removal of all gray wolves from the federal government's Endangered Species Act (ESA); and 2) Their management by the states.
The most current science has shown that the loss of wolves and other predators has degraded almost every ecosystem on earth.For more information,download the pdf.
horace in new yorkSunshine and puppies greeted me at the ripe and wonderous time of 11 am.horace in new york3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Golden rays shone through the window and onto the faux fur of a thousand stuffed bears, the momentos of past trips that my friends mother collects and stores in their guest bedroom or, as they lovingly call it, 'the bear room'.
Puppies alighted on my bear-print blankets, a clear message that they had been sent to retrieve me on my friends behalf. I dressed and followed. My friend greeted me with the promise of coffe and eggs, both of which were welcomed with enthusiasm.
Today, I had breakfast in America.
ValenTIEs! -The Allwin Tie Knot!<3ValenTIEs! -The Allwin Tie Knot!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of the most amazing gifts I will ever be able to present to somebody is creating them their very own tie knot.
-At least if they like and wear ties a lot!
I thought "How hard can it be", and went to town with every single tie I own to make something spectacular in the same line of the Eldridge or Trinity knot. Four in the morning every single tie was tied and there it was! Tadaaa! A double braided tie knot.
So far I have not seen this knot design anywhere else and I claim it as my own. -And share it with anybody wanting to wear it!
The knot is designed to be narrow and elaborate, and is dedicated with love to Mr. R.T Allwin.
Depending on if it's tied from left to right or if you tie it mirrored, the pattern forming on the knot will change as well.
HERE IT IS!
Happy ValenTIEs! <3
