anxietyFirst of all.. I didn't expect to gain so much appreciation over this piece.anxiety3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!http://devilmaycry.org/community/threads/official-incoming-dmc-art-book-reveals-vergil-is-neros-father.15205/Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So apparently the newest DMC artbook confirms that Nero is Vergil's son, but from what I've been reading in that forum, a lot of plot ideas got mixed around, dropped, or simply unused, plot contradictions and timing contradictions.
I've taken Japanese for three years and although I've forgotten 90% of it, I'm still pretty familiar with the basics and understanding sentence possessives. In the first post when scrolled down to the bottom of it, it shows a picture with Japanese text with two white circles.
The first circle is Nero's name in katakana. The second circle is saying Vergil's with a possessive. So "Baajiru no..." and then something, something in kanji. I can't read kanji so the sentence would have to say something to the affect of using the japanese words for father being "otousan" or "chichi".

I'd love to blame me getting sick, and travelling to San Diego, and going to an anime convention in the middle here, but we're going to plow forward like a man with alligators in his pants! So welcome to week 13!

However, unlike in previous intervals where there was a ton of stuff and then nothing, what I'm going to do is start rationing the favorites out to you in regular doses. This will serve three very important purposes. #1, it'll make sure that in the quiet weeks you don't get just one or two posts. #2, it'll ensure that no one gets lost in the crowd! #3, it'll make sure I actually finish this post in my lifetime since there's nearly 20 I need to get through!

There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

And everything I had been scared of receded like a fleet of ships into the distance. And they moored there. On the horizon. They weren't completely gone but some commanding officer had said 'let's just leave the habour for a bit, shall we? Let's go where the blue turns to green. Okay? Let's empty this bay for a while.'
So I lay in bed in only my underwear with my sheets pulled tight around me and I could feel my heart fluttering. Not like a human heart. More like a wing. One wing of a very small bird. Creating a breeze in my body between my ribs and up into my throat.
I actually raised one hand to check it. My heart, I mean. I placed my fingers between my breasts and felt for the beat. I expected it to be racing. To feel it as a blur. A quiver. Like a plucked string but

Be comfortable being uncomfortableI was one of those people who were afraid to dream big.Be comfortable being uncomfortable2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am sure this is a feeling that my fellow readers share with from time to time (if not all the time). Born in a small town in a developing country did funny things to my confidence and self esteem when I was growing up. It seems that life conveniently places roadblocks and detours along the path of my dreams. When I was a toddler, I wanted to be a fighter jet pilot. Only to realise that we don't even make our own airplanes! When I was in high school, I like to doodle and draw comics on the pages of my notebooks. Fellow students love them till my home room teacher found out about my secret doodling time one day. He tore up my book in front of everyone and that killed my comic artist dream instantly. Despite that, my dream to be a creative was too big to ignore and I insisted on doing arts and design after I graduated. Even then, the product of my upbringing still defeats me every now and then. Whenever I see great works by fellow

Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I
