5 reasons why we fail to get things doneDear, deviantart fellow artists,5 reasons why we fail to get things done1 year ago in Personal More Like This
stop wishing, start doing
As usual I had no idea what would be the topic of this journal, but I managed to think about and write down these 5 reasons why we (and I) tend to fail on things we want/have to do and I hope you'll find this journal post helpful.
1. Time management issues.
"I have no time for this", "If only I had the time for that" .. we tend to make these excuses, as if we all wouldn't have the same amount of time every single day. It's how we manage to spend that time, that matters. A lot of us have other important things to do, but let's be honest, if you have the dedication there are really no obstacles in your way. There will never be the perfect time for anything and with proper planning It's easier set the priorities for the right things.
They are everywhere. Especially on the internet. We tend to waste so many hours on checking what's new, reading bl

An ObservationIt's really funny to me the interactions I have with people in varying environments and the different reactions I receive from people based on their perceptions. Take for instance Deviantart, which I find most interesting. Some of you create an entire persona for me based on my art style, skill level, number of page views, and watcher count. I know for a fact that there are some of you who have the misconception that I believe I am above common folk and the very air I walk on is blessed. Some people also think I'm very cool and talented and you wish you could be me. Little do you know I am the biggest dork to have ever graced this planet, second only to the dorkiest of dorks Bella. True I do not respond to every comment, but I try to respond to the comments that aren't one of the following: "Cute!" "Love it!" "Awesome Work!". DONT GET ME WRONG THOSE COMMENTS STILL MAKE ME SMILE LIKE A PUPPY WITH A NEW BONE TO CHEW! However, all I can really say to them is "Thanks!".

Literary Justification: Writers R UsaspireLiterary Justification: Writers R Us4 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
verb (used without object), aspired, aspiring.
1. to long, aim, or seek ambitiously; be eagerly desirous, especially for something great or of high value
Seeking to be a writer is an interesting way of looking at the world. In once sense, you could seek for that one particular goal of having a book published, or being about to write as a way to pay the bills. The thing is, there are a lot of artists out there who say that they're aspiring to be an artist purely because they don't have that little goal filled in their mind.
If you want to be a doctor, you're aspiring to be a doctor because you can't just state to people you are a doctor and then proceed to poke needles directly into their face. However, if you want to be an artist, an author,
Freedom - Bats and BirdsI feel free at the moment, a few days off work after finishing my Certificate IV in Design (specialising in Graphic Design) CUV40311 which I managed to complete in 12 months rather than the two years granted. I have come to terms with Illustrator, we have a healthier relationship than what we had +6 months ago and the pen tool has become my friend at long last. As my skills are still very basic I need to dedicate time to only keep them, but also develop them further...this is probably going to be the tricky part for me. Depending on my drive and personal circumstances I may consider starting the diploma toward the end of the year. In the meantime as a visual tribute to my freedom here are some bats and birds.

a heart that beats in halves?
a mouth like a bear trap,
don't kiss me -
that anchor tattoo
on your foot, it still holding you
down to the earth?
that skull on your chest,
you still dead in there?
i told you i wouldn't
but i kept my eyes fixed
on the exit,
and if i'm being honest
i spoke in the tongue of my own,
i was out of that door like a shot
what a buzz -
a hive full of angry words,
queen of the nest
full of hate but the honey is
sweet when you smoke them
all out of the way,
get them drunk get them
leaving my mouth
(hope it stings)
MORE INFO ON NEW XS EPISODESSo I was listening to Rob Paulsen's weekly podcast, where he talks about voice acting and gets voice actors in to talk about voice acting and stuff, and this week's guest was Grey DeLisle, who is amazing and voiced Kimiko in Xiaolin Showdown, and for about 30 seconds, the conversation turned to XS so I have some new information on the much-rumored new episodes of Xiaolin Showdown!MORE INFO ON NEW XS EPISODES3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I continue, I advise everyone to take everything in the fan-made transcript below with a grain of salt. Do NOT run around telling everyone that this is fact, because it is NOT. It is WORD OF MOUTH. EVERYTHING I AM ABOUT TO SAY IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE and NOTHING HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY CARTOON NETWORK OR ANY STUDIO OR ANYTHING. This was pulled from 30 seconds of idle chatter between two professional voice actors.

A Discussion On Backgrounds In PaintingsA Discussion On Backgrounds In Paintings4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional Art Week
Background is called the matrix of a painting. Something that holds the foreground or main subject to our focus. Even though, we often neglect this stepping stone. And this element should be discussed separately because this the principle step that even comes before the composition sometimes. If you have nothing to hold it, what fate becomes of your precious creation?
Before we analyze the elements of a background, we must understand what is background actually.
Background is not a solid object or patch of colour which you must put behind your painting to support it. No. Background is the space that surrounds your painting. It is the only way with which your painting relates to the surrounding at the very first place. It is where your sight is tricked into distance.
While we are talking about backgrounds, we should in

1. Name: Jacklyn...but I prefer Jackie
2. Name backwards: Nylkcaj, eikcaj
3. Were you named after anyone?:
My Mom actually thought of the name from Charlie's Angel's Jaclyn Smith! she especially thought the name looked pretty WITHOUT the "k" but my Dad accidently mucked it up when he was filling up some important papers, and well...yup I got stuck with the "k" haha! I personally think that was funny, besides, it kind of makes my name unique that way
4. Does your name mean anything?: If I remember correctly, I think it meant "Healer"
5. Nick Name(s): Jackie...Jack Jack too, but it's rare. And sometimes the screennames I use online as well
