I just wanted to say that I know you're going through some stuff right now, stuff that may make life a little harder or even a lot harder. I know you've felt so alone and like no one cares that you're hurting and suffering, but I just wanted to say I love you. Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever has happened or is happening to you… you're not alone.
You are amazing, beautiful, wonderful, unique, and worth every breath of life you breathe. I love you, I need you in this world, and I wish only the best things for you. You are in my heart always, all of you. I pray that you find a peaceful end to the troubles of your life and I just want you to know that despite everything, despite feeling like no one cares… please know that I do. I may be a stranger to you but that doesn't mean I don't feel for you. You are special and so very loved by more people than you know.

you didn't mind being a girl.
It was only after you met
her that you thought, "Maybe
this isn't the right fit." Because,
if you're being honest, she
deserves a knight in shining armor.
You are not Atlas, my dear.
Your shoulders do not
merit a world of troubles,
but instead love-lined clouds
that whisper, "Do not be
ashamed of who you are."
A woman can be a

with more gold than a king's

For a while there (for about 2-3 years) communication like stopped, nothing at all. No emails, no replies, no progress, nadda. At that point I just accepted the fact I had been conned out of $350+ and that was that, but earlier this year after my own fiasco with commissions cropped up this girl popped up again and decided to regain contact. Her reason for not contacting me before for those years was because she'd moved, family issues, you name it... she had it.
Here's the thing, I have almost infinite patience when it comes to waiting for things (spare for when I really need them) and although the commissions were expensive ($40.oo or so each) I had the money at the time by chance and I knew the work I'd be buying/getting would be well worth it.

There was a lot of fear, longing, confusion, and honest to God disappointment in my youth and it led me to develop some kind of complex over the years.
I went out tonight with my mum to go shopping. For the most part we get along sometimes, mostly dependent on her moods. Some days I'm nothing to her and others... I'm a friend. I never really know what day will bring what kind of reception. Today was one of her good days I guess.
The journey started out as usual discussing random crap about her work and the car and then the rest of the time I'm sitting there listening to her hack her lungs out before she goes into another bit of conversation.
Something was different tonight though...

Now, from here on out this may be purely opinion and because my participation in the industry has only been for about 10 years (as in being paid for my work) I may not be the best person to speak on this matter. However, I have to say something, if only to put my own opinions on the matter out there.
15 years ago I got my first commission. It was a full colour realism portrait for someone of their dog and I offered to do it for $5.00 using traditional media.
They took up the offer and it took me about a week of working on and off to finish their image. At the time I wasn't anywhere near being sure of my skills even though I'd been drawing comprehensively

Of course slavery was a thing here in Greece, because wealthy people needed someone to do their work. He had slaves of his own, though he preferred to call them servants, a less, demeaning name. But something about the way the man talked, standing high on the stand, caught his curiosity.
Being tall had its advantages, and he could see clearly in the back of the crowd without getting too close. The man’s annoying voice bombed around the area, and told them that he had a special treat. To his dismay, everyone groaned and almost began walking away. The man grabbed a chain and pulled forward a skinny and fragile looking figure.

The dungeon was dark and dank as usual. You could hear the whispering of ghosts who were sharing idle gossip about the students. The Bloody Baron flew past, giving you an ugly scowl. You hugged your books close to your chest and pressed on at a more rapid pace. You could still feel him glaring daggers at you. It caused your skin to crawl. ‘No one thinks I should be in Slytherin,’ you thought. ‘Not even the ghosts…’
“Psssst!” You stopped and glanced around. No one else was around, so the person had to be calling you. You arched an eyebrow suspiciously as the door to the supply closet creaked open. You approached it cautiously.
It was dark inside. You could barely see the outline of shelves and brooms stuffed into the corners. You placed your hands on either side of the doorframe and stuck your head inside. Squinting your eyes, you couldn’t make out anything other than in

I remember it like it was yesterday. The evening started out just as any evening before. A simple dinner of chicken and noodles, a glass of water, and then a nice rest on the couch while watching television. It was a simple life but it was one I cherished with every fiber of my being since the day I started to live it.
You see, I am a cat, born and bred as nothing more than an ordinary house cat, but to my dear Millie I was more than just a cat, I was her best friend.
She had named me Thomas. I don't know why she'd chose then name as it was nothing near my real name- 'Feather' which my own mother had given to me on the day of my birth. However, as I'd lived with Millie for nearly 5 cat years (35 in human years) I'd come to learn that humans cannot understand or speak cat tongue anymore than we cats can speak human words. So, I dealt with the human name if only to humor my dearest Millie. She'd taken me in when I was just a kit; barely two weeks old. I was scrawny, scruffy, and an al

Allowing yourself to step in, and making sure to close the front door with a firm click, you blinked in surprise. Alfred's house was grand, too large for a single young man, and was enveloped in pitch-black darkness. You kept blinking, trying to get used to the darkness, and noticed light was slipping through a gap under a door. You stepped closer to it, abandoning your shoes close to the front door, and reached for the handle. The door creaked open slowly, and flashes appeared suddenly like lightning. The curtains were closed and it seemed that the only trace of light there was, was emitting from a large

I just don't think it's necessary to boast =/ It really wouldn't be an issue if it didn't seem as though most people who do do that are looking to amp up their worth with 'things'.
It's kind of like "Look at me, I have a crappy personality but I have 4 iPhones and a bunch of stuff! Aren't I awesome?"
Look, if a car doesn't have an engine you can paint it as pretty as can be, but that doesn't make it a good car.
Maybe it's because I don't have a lot of stuff or because I was taught that your worth and merit wasn't measured by material things, but it bothers me to no end
