Crying In PublicOkay, so I'm a firm believer in not showing people your weak side, in public. I was raised to always smile and cry in the shower with the water running. So... when my macbook pro malfunctioned for the first time in two years yesterday, I had no idea what to do. Mind you, I hadn't backed up my stuff in like months so I had tons of commissions, academic papers, and just my entire life on my computer. It kept showing the grey and blue screens, and after 4 hours at my university's IT center and them not being able to fix it, I wanted to break down. So the guy apologizes for not being able to fix it and tells me to call apple and tell them I need a new Motherboard because I apparently fried this one. For those who are computer savvy, you know that if you need a new motherboard, you might as well get a new computer.Crying In Public9 months ago in Personal More Like This

A Girl's Two Cents on Equestria GirlsSo, nobody really -asked- me, but I feel like sharing my thoughts on the Equestria Girls thing.

If you're not at home to hearing someone badmouth a cartoon on ideological principles, you're not going to like this, I'm warning you now. But if you care about my thoughts and feelings on the matter, read on.
And let me say before anything else, that this isn't a criticism predicated on canon disruption, or particularly on the general cartoonish merits of a cartoon. I make this argument as a girl, as a self-respecting, intelligent girl - not as a cartoon aficionado.
To understand why I feel the way I do, you should first put yourself in my position - that is, the position of a girl who is acutely attuned to media representations of women, to "girls' entertainment". And a girl for whom, when she first discovered MLP:FIM, was -largel

I'm very upset, of course. I still feel empty inside. I've been crying so much, and I can't listen to them because I just burts into tears. My Mum was promising I could go to see them when they next toured.They helped me to stop harming myself, and now I'm almost fully recovered. All because of them. I can't believe it's over, and all so suddenly.
I don't know how the rest of you are feeling. Do you feel upset? Angry that they announced without a warning, no explanation? From a lot of the journals, comments, things I've seenn on Facebook and Wattpad, everyone is devastated. As I am. But I've thought about it, and I'm not sad anymore. Here's why:
MCRmy, this isn't the end. We're the fucking My Chemical Romance Army. We're strong. We'll carry on. We'll help each other through this horrible time. We're a family. The band may be over, but they're leaving a legacy that w

This journal I decided to make it helpful. (hopefully) ^^
If you like to paint digitally, it doesn't matter what program you are using.
As long as it is functional enough for you, and you enjoy painting when you use it. ^^
I love to try all painting programs, it's like exploring!
Though we already know that Photoshop, Painter and Sai are great, but there are free ones
that good enough to create artwork as beautiful as those programs. ^^
Many times that I randomly posted about them but this time I want to collect them all here!
So it will be convenient for you all to check and compare them.
What I can say is that I'm grateful and appreciate those creators who spent their time and hard working and share them to us.
That's why I want to support and share them to you all!
Hints, Tips, and TricksHints, Tips, and Tricks for using your markers.Hints, Tips, and Tricks3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here you'll find useful hints, tips, and tricks that you can use when you use your markers, ranging from the expensive Copics to the cheap Crayolas.
If you only have a limited amount of colors layer ones you have to make new colors or layer the same color on top of itself to make a darker shade.
If you don't mind making your pictures slightly duller you can shade your colors using grey tones opposed to other colors.
Test your colors on scrap sheets of the paper you're coloring on before you actually color your work. Or if you have a scanner/printer that will print on your type of paper make a copy of your work and try different color schemes on it before you work on the actual one.
Some markers bleed a lot when you color with them, check on a separate page

To All HetaliansSo, I've been reading some blogs about people leaving the fandom due to the psycho fans.To All Hetalians1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thinking other fandoms might be better.
In three years I've been in a total of seven different fandoms.
Not just the Hetalia fandom is messed up.
No matter where you go, those damn psycho fans are there.
Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Left 4 Dead, Portal, Team Fortress 2, Assassin's Creed, Bioshock, etc.
No matter where you go, its all the same.
Even Attack on Titan and that swimming anime, "Free!" are affected and those aren't even a year old.
Why won't you leave the fandom of your origin?
Because you love it,
despite all the assholes you have to deal with.
No matter what, no fandom is perfect.

Decoration/ Customization TutorialJournal SkinsDecoration/ Customization Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you make a new Journal, look to your right. Over there is where you select what Journal Skins from your installed collection you will use. The default is Deviant Green. Right by there is another square with what appears to be an eye that is labeled "Browse Skins." Click that, and you can look through DevaintART's Journal Skins category for ones you might like and can install to use later to ensure that these are for Free use--anyone can use it--, and not Private use-- only a particular person can use--). HOWEVER, you can only use a Journal Skin besides the default if you are a paid Premium Member, Senior Member, or if a company has sponsored free Journal Skins (which happens about once or twice a year) for a short time. You can also make or customize your own Journal Skin using CSS (specific coding), but since most people do not know how, I asked firstfear to make some templates in 2012.
Y u no feel badEvery time I get more and more disappointed in people.In my friends,to be precise.Y u no feel bad2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I stopped hanging out with everybody since my wedding in October.And I don't regret it because it was my choice.
I used to close my eyes on the fact my friendship with,sadly,everybody in real life wasn't the way it should be.
I thought that it's ok to be the one who always listens but is never heard.Besides,after a few bottles of beer it didn't matter that much.
And I didn't want to think I'm someones friend/best friend only when they have something to tell me or need something only I can give.I was hoping that our friendship is for real.
What I'm trying to say is that they only ask me how am I just to start the conversation and talk only about themselves.
It's always the same.'Hi' 'hi' 'How are you?' and when I'm about to answer the question and share my news I'm being interrupted by 'Oh,and btw I...'.It's always 'I'
It's not that I don't care at all.It's just that why do you bother asking

[And this is all shamelessly ripped off of what :iconclonetroopsrule344: and :iconxxNike-kovadrinxx: did. ]
Also, be warned....these will probably turn into some giant ramblings/stories as I am feeling sooooo random today! :iconderpfaceplz:
1) My first friend in kindergarden was a boy, a girl, and another girl from Japan. We used to play "Cooks" and make up a bunch of random disgusting foods (example: "I'm making strawberry-chocolate-lemon-coconut-applesauce!!!" ). There was also a large, stuffed tiger involved....somehow.
2) I actually started being interested in the stories of the clones from Episode 3. How Cody became my favorite I would assume is because I started off my Star Wars obsession worshiping Obi-Wan. But then I got kinda bored with him because all his stories had been told already and he wasn't really as 'underdogish' as I would be interested in. So then I was like, "Oh hey...." 0____0 "Who's that guy

We're 5 student developers and we're aiming to release a movie quizz application on Android.
Find the movie : the concept
Find the movie is a movie quizz, but the enigma is a picture that describes the movie in an original way. The picture will be made of 4 hints, each hint is an aspect of the movie, but because pictures can tell more than words, here's an example about the Lord of the Rings :
This example is a pretty bad example, firstly because it's ugly, and secondly because the dimensions are not right, but it explains the concept, and now, you may have a better idea of what we'll be asking for this contest.
