30 things not to do to yourself(I copied this from owl-some's journal, thought it might be useful so i'm putting it here as well)
Stop spending time with the wrong people.
Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they'll make room for you. You shouldn't have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it's not the people that stand by your side when you're at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you're at your worst that are your true friends.
Stop running from your problems.
Face them head on. No, it won't be easy. There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. We aren't supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. That's not how we're made. In fact, we're made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. Because that's the whole purpose of living – to face proble

Request winners are OokamiWolf-san and HailDawn. Congratulations!
I'm sorry to everyone who didn't get a request! Honest speaking, it was DIFFICULT to choose characters. If life was longer and we had more than 24 hours a day, it'd probably be possible to draw for everyone. xDD But sadly, it isn't this way...
I feel bad for that there only were two requests, so please watch out for new events, just because it's loads of fun and a way to thank you watchers for being awesome. <33
Thanks so much, everyone! You've got some awesome characters, it was exciting to see them all! Have fun with your OCs. c:

I made two sketches and thought that it would be fun if people could request their character to be drawn out of them, like a free YCH (Your-Character-Here).
Will choose two characters I'd like to draw out of the comments. You don't

Spiritual Laws Revealed For Our BenefitWhen God had revealed the laws to man it was for their own benefit.Spiritual Laws Revealed For Our Benefit11 months ago in Personal More Like This
People react to the knowledge of God's laws as something oppressive.
How is knowledge of limits one should follow for their own lively
hood oppressive? It's like saying a person is better blind because
he/she who is blind is no longer limited by visible things. As if,
because they are not aware of a wall, that suddenly that unawareness
would allow them to walk through the wall. The law was shown to mankind
so man would know what is good for them and what is destructive to them.
We know and can see the physical effects of the natural laws, and we are
for the most part forced to stay within those limits. The spiritual laws
which are considered invisible, we see them as relative or irrelevant, but
it is through them that our character takes shape. Regardless of what we
think of them, they are still active. Wasn't the knowledge of natural laws
beneficial to us? Then how much more important is knowledge of the spiritual law
About Tawa...OK, so I've gotten a few comments about Inmate Tawa and her religious beliefs and I feel I need to say this in case things get out of hand...About Tawa...11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Tawa is NOT my version of what I think all religious people are like. I know full well that isn't the case. However, this sort of personality works for her and for the plot of the comic. Everything I do, I do for the purpose of the story. I don't do things based on what I personally believe/how I view the world.
I really don't want to offend anybody with her. That certainly was not my intention. I am not using her to say 'this is how I view religious people and I think it's wrong' or anything like that. Yes, some religious folk are morons, but you get morons in ANY group of people. Plenty of my other characters make bad choices too, so please remember that.
I felt that needed to be said. Please don't worry. I am not so ignorant that I would do such a thing like attack a specific group. Tawa will get better. She is not a one-sided chara
I'm so worried about this dog...I know that I'm overly worried about everything, but that's just me. In less than a week I'm back to Norway and I'm really sad because I'm so afraid that one of the dogs here is going to die, and I'll not ever meet her again. Yesterday I saw a "bump" on her hip, and some of her fur was gone. The bump had red dots on it... I got no idea what it was and I've never seen anything like that before. But I put some Betadine on it in case it was something that could cause an infection. And I still hugged and kissed her no matter how nasty that thing looked like.I'm so worried about this dog...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today she has another bump like that on her leg, and I saw it was bleeding. Even more of her fur is gone. It's not normal shedding, some fur is literally gone and you can see her skin. When I came out of the shower this morning, mum told me she had thrown up. I got really paranoid right then and thought she was more than just a little sick. Then, all mum and grandma are saying? "She's going to die soon anyway" and
A Weak Foundation Leads To Weak RelationshipsMany times we try to build relationships without the properA Weak Foundation Leads To Weak Relationships2 years ago in Personal More Like This
permits and acknowledgements that only God can give. We end
up investing everything into the construction of these
relationships, without the permits to do so. You see, God
had already surveyed the land of which you desired to build
upon and had already deemed it hazardous, the land would
bear no fruit. Regardless of even the blatant warnings,
we in our rebellious nature always "know best".
We deny all signs given that reinforced that building
a relationship that would consume all resources was not
an idea we should pursue. Even when we "felt" it would be
a prosperous and fulfilling venture. Eventually once we've
invested it all, with nothing more to give, we finally see,
there has been no return on the investment. Frustrated,
confused, weary, and simply baffled about what went wrong,
we fall into a deep depression. After all we did do
everything "right", didn't we?
We used quality materials when building, we invested as
How To Create a GOOD Hetalia OCDudes...I can't even...:iconheaddeskplz:How To Create a GOOD Hetalia OC3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously, people? Making OCs, especially Hetalia ones, is not that hard. All you have to do is not make them a Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu, which is simple in itself. Give them strengths, and give them weaknesses. That's all. Now, I will admit that Hetalia OCs are a bit more challenging to make because (at least if you care) there's history to consider. Sadly, many people do not consider it. Many people end up pairing up their OC with a country solely because the creator loves that country, with no real reason behind it other than that, therefore their pairings are controversially the product of their own ignorance and crack. Another mistake that's made too often is that they end up being paired with/have a relationship with a country that their people despise. Take Greenland, for example. When Danes invaded, they killed, tortured, made sl

Kat and Sayde are NOT GAY!This is not a rant about gay rights. I’m not out to change the minds of people who don’t approve of homosexuality. I couldn’t care less if you agree with it or not; that’s your business. This is a rant about friendship, and the ignorance of people who can’t tell the difference between it and romance.Kat and Sayde are NOT GAY!1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
Seriously. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve had to say this.
Having a best friend of the same gender doesn’t make you gay. You can feel close to them without being gay. Telling them you love them does not make you gay. You can love someone in a sisterly/brotherly kind of way. It does NOT mean you must have romantic feelings for them.
Also, Kat and Sayde say themselves they love each other like sisters countless times throughout the comics, so why are people still insisting they’re together? Do you guys just fail to read the text properly or what?
I have no issue making gay characters if I want to, but please stop telling me Kat an
Little advice on dealing with art thieves.Edit: I know the person who stole from me and my friends is at it again but if you're reading this; please leave my name out, I don't want that attention ;A;'Little advice on dealing with art thieves.1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
Okay guys listen up! >w<
Since a new thief appeared I've decided to write this up because I don't think people handle art thieves well and a lot of incorrectly done reports are made which means you're slowing da when the proper ones are made, I know your intentions are good but you have to stop!! ;~;
- write a journal with the persons username or links to the work because as frustrating as it is, it's against da's rules to call out on a person and you could get in trouble, chances are slim but it's better to be safe.
- be abusive towards them, until the matter is solved they could easily get you done for that because that's what trolls and people do, they seek your reaction to get you in trouble for the fun of it :'D
- Go to the help desk unless you're the affected person. You can not report

So then… since June 9 from 2009… wow… I can’t believe so much years have passes… 5 to be honest… And to think I came here as a complete stranger, almost like a newbie when it first plays in the multiplayer online XD… and I couldn’t imagine the *adventures* I could have gotten here…
My first ever deviation was this one…
With that it was a story I literally wanted to take out from my chest… and I wrote it down… I really felt the deep feelings of finally showing the perspective I want everyone to see…
That perspective was to show how even good heroes can be the most merciless villains… with the right reasons and motivations…
At first I thought none would like them because of such perspective…. And when time came… I met one of the

Well what a glorious start to the day Amy grumbled to herself as she looked down at her mud soaked dress caused by stepping into a massive puddle. It had been raining all week, and refused to stop just for amy as she walked to work. Her favourite red and white dress was soaking wet and her bangs slapped against her face as she walked through the harsh wind and rain, not to mention the cars that sprayed her with another wave of mud as they drove by. This was not her day.
She looked up suddenly to see a faint glow of colours through the harsh rain, she never felt so relieved to see the neon sign that sat at the top of the entrance of her destination, The chaos café. She decided to run the rest of the way, risking severe embarrassment by the possibility of slipping on the soaking wet concrete. The automatic doors opened for her and she walked inside, noting the sympathetic looks the customers gave her as she went.
She looked around; it was defiantly a ni
