Return To Sri LankaIt has been many years since I Last visited Sri Lanka. Circumstances then, were very different for both me and Sri Lanka, (The Pearl Of The Indian Ocean). In those days it was engulfed in an abysmal civil war. A Nation that was once destined to a global jewel, eclipsed by cheerless clouds of bloodshed and sorrow. Myself, I was emerging from my own personal shadows, one and a half years of hospitalisation and 52 reconstructive operations had put me on my feet and brought me to this confluence of paradise and purgatory. I was still in the service and my presence there was in my official capacity, thus I was not merely an observer of the disparaging situation. My memories were of nostalgic bonds that only brothers-in-arms know of. Painfully poignant, in the fact that not a single comrade survives today.Return To Sri Lanka2 years ago in Personal More Like This

"Dear Francisco Briseño (Paco for friends)
It's time to recognize your anniversary here on the studio.

You were to the few who actually did honor the slogan of your university "working people", and from there you showed your talent, dedication and continuous effort to keep learning, therefore, we didn't hesitate to get you back, so that the end your studies, you could incorporate as part of our famous all star dream team.

Here is a bit of a tribute or appreciation thing to those people who i consider to be some of the coolest people i've met on DA. Since i watch so many people there's quite a lot of people i might end up forgetting so i must apologize in advance to some of you other people that i forgot.

Random Journal: Why Po x Tigress?Am a bit bored at the moment and seeing as I didn't update my journal in a while, mite as well start with something that's been swarming the net the past 2 months.Random Journal: Why Po x Tigress?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Point being: Po and Master Tigress from Kung Fu Panda 2.
While I've seen quite a few people supporting it, there's been some "angry" ones that just hate it from no apparent reason, most of them just saying that a panda and tiger crossing is just gross.
Well newsflash people, Dreamworks have had a habit for making inter-species relationship in the past (Shrek and Madagascar) and it's worked just dandy and fine.
But back to the point, if you'd ask me about the couple 2 years ago, I wouldn't even consider it. That was until I watched the sequal and I was rather shocked how well they actually fit together.
Lemme state a few things.
Secrets of the Furious Five: (I just figured to begin here, since it pretty much reveals Tigress' past)
It was revealed that Tigress spent her early childhood in an orphanage, feared and unloved by pe

I finally got to meet the love of my life in real life and in person..finally, after 6 long years of knowing eachother, and 2 long years of dating.
We got to spend our 2 year anniversary together..we had a lovely dinner at olive garden, got to talk about our future plans, and a bunch of other things, closing that chapter of our relationship in eachothers arms as we drifted off to sleep.
I have never felt so loved..so cared for...so important to somebody...He is all I could ever ask for in a boyfriend..and more at that.
He made me smile more in one week than i have in my entire lifetime...I needed this...I know now that what we have is 100% real. He loves me for me and has proven it time and time again this week.
My family adored him...everyone said he was so nice, so respectful so wonderful...It feels so good to know that they all support our relationship completely now that they've gotten to know him in p
Something To ShareI wanted to share something with my dearest friends that is very special to me. This was work that I commissioned. It is a photo of my cat Blue when he still had life in him. The quality of the original shot was was very poor and since this was a favorite photo of Blue I wanted to see how it would look in vector art. As you can see the results were astounding. I was touched when I saw the finished product. The artist captured my Blue's image perfectly. You can see the original copy when you click on this image.

Plush kits are a go!edit: link to the original poll http://magnastorm.deviantart.com/journal/poll/4064436/ or here's a quick rundown;Plush kits are a go!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
These kits will include everything you need to make one of the following:
Chibi Wolpertinger , chibi Jackalope or a chibi Gemstone Dragon
The kits will include instructions, (cut?) fabric pieces, and in the case of Wolpertingers and Jackalopes a plastic nose or an acrylic gem for the Gemstone Dragons.
Considering the super positive response plush kits will happen!
These will probably not be available until January or so, unless I suddenly find myself with lots of free time to create the instructions after I move in about a week and a half. These would be available in limited numbers, just so I don't spend entire weeks cutting out pieces instead of working on commissions ahah. I'm thinking about limiting them to a certain number per two w

Never knew that I would lose a friend like thisA writer, a boxer, a dreamer and a dear friend with sheer knowledge on history has demised last night. I have met Swapnil, a fun loving, organized, humble, kind and intelligent guy 4 years back when we were studying together in our post graduation. He was one of my friends who used to wake me up in the morning to get me going to our classes. We used to have breakfast, lunch and dinner together everyday. Playing games by teaming up and going for swimming together was so fun. But now, all that is left are his memories.Never knew that I would lose a friend like this2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Rest in peace my dear friend. You'll always be remembered by me.

We recently watched a portion of the movie "The Iron Lady" (2011), about the late Lady Margret Thatcher. In it, a doctor asks how she feels, and Lady Thatcher replies "Why is everyone so concerned with how we feel these days? We should be concerned with what we are thinking. Why not ask about our thoughts?" She then goes on to tell him by using the following, most excellent quote, as delivered exquisitely by the actress Meryl Streep:
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
This quote is attributed to Mr. Frank Outlaw, Late President of the Bi-Lo Grocery Store chain. It dates back in other forms to the turn of the century, and (W)ords (A)ctions (T)houghts (C)haracter (H)abits form the word *watch*.

so I went to my appointment to see a orthopaedic surgeon today and he said that in 4 months time (maybe longer or shorter) I will be having surgery on my left shoulder, it will be day surgery and I will be wearing a sling for about 4 to 6 weeks then physiotherapy....after this surgery I will be having surgery on my right shoulder 4 months later....I just don't know what to think..i'm nervous but I have been suffering from shoulder pain for a very long time!!! I am finally going to get some relief!!!!!
my surgeon said that what he will do is scrape off the calcium buildup and also take a thin layer of bone off too...I will keep you all updated. I also have to go to my local hospital and get blood work and a ekg done.
I hope you are all having a great day!!!

I'd really hoped that by 2015, ppl wouldn't have the desire to tell randos online to go drink bleach with little to no justifications for doing so, but it seems it can't be helped. However, bc I realize so many of these kinds need to maintain their 'hardcore' 'idgaf' image, mostly bc they know very little else about themselves, and thereby derive all sense of worth from said paradigms, I've some work-arounds for you!
If you feel you NEED desperately to be a shtty person online, INSTEAD of cyber bullying, try some of these terrible, but practically benign, alternate behaviors. For example..
You could forward chain emails.You could use Yahoo messenger. You could run a blog entirely dedicated to over-priced, off-menu Starbucks ephemera. You could purchase Twitter followers. You could fight with
