At first - there is a new kiriban - catch my 866 666 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note to win a feature
(no feature for animal abuse, porn or art-thieves).
At second - I lost 12 kilos it means I need to lose 20 another killos to have NORMAL weight. Well, I am on a good way, I just need to try harder. 12 kilos are nice, but not nice enough if you consider the time. I am still satisfied, because I think I mostly lost fat and not muscles, which is great I will do my best to lose another 10 kilos faster. Let's give it try ok? I will do my best to lose another 10 kilos until the end of October (I do not want to go to quickly. To lose weight fast is definitely not a good way, because then you get a lot of fat back and you lose muscles...).
I went to buy some present for my sister's nameday (which is today and we had a cake, OH! and because my job's colleague is also Martina, we had another cake, OH! I think I will eat gras

Nobody caughed the kiriban?
What a pity
Will, will, where are you?
I do not mean any guy (although Will Riker is kind of cute ), but my own will - I can not get into losing weight again, although I now have the perfect chance to continue! I hate my weak will so much, how comes that I can not kick myself to continue, especially when I see it IS possible? :/ nah, I am so angry at myself. Go, stupid Woxys! There are still 20 kilos of fat which wait to be removed.
Mhhhhhm, I really need to start, as even the current state makes me feel much happier than the state a year ago.
Sorry for talking about this issue a lot, it is not easy, although I have already managed to lose some 20 kilos. And now other 20 should go away! It is just hard, because yes, it is nice I lost so much, but I am still so terribly overweight I have so many motivation clothes, but I obviously need a big kick to continue. GOOO, blonde, go but thank you for your support, you are awesome.

I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different

I must say, that I see it more and more often here on dA. When I browse photos of animals, I almost everytime find photos of road kills or dead animals in general, often deatiled shots of their entrails and decayed bodies. I understand that some people can not take photos of alive animals in ZOOs or in the wild, but seriously... do they need to post dead animals? Moreover, usually bad quality snapshots of bowels? I think some people just forget that this is deviantART. AAAAAARRRRRRRTTTT. I do not think that remains of dead racoons are art. I find it disgusting. At least it should be posted to category "Horror", not wild animals :/ just saying my opinion.
Edit: people, I speak about REALLY disgusting photos of animals, which are torn into bloody pieces by cars. I do NOT speak about photos of dead animals in general, which can be used for anatomy references
On the other hand, I hope you noticed that time to time, I give some critiques, usually to people, whose photos ar

Uah, what a night
I was so excited with free international shipping offered by DA, that I shopped like crazy, ordering so many things I hope they will REALLY arrive and that I will REALLY have shipping for free.
Also, I see that some of you used that offer too, because some people bought stuff I sell - THANK YOU for every shopped item, people, thank you, really! I have already sold several mugs and also 3 calendars, which makes me really happy! I wish I could see, how the printed calendar looks, so I thought about buying it too, but honestly, I would not use it that much haha, from some 5500 points, I have 500 left now
Do not forget that I now sell new FOX MUG -

And... shame on North Dakota for degrading women to living incubators. I can not believe this is possible in the 21th Century and it makes me proud of my country which is very liberal in this area and definitely does not force raped women to enjoy even more pain and trauma.
News: I got accepted for some working practise, so I should get some working experience. The idea is that you work 2 months for free in some company which participates in the special program organized by EU. The company gets money for it, you get experience and then you have better chance to gain a normal job. So I took my part and I should start in 10 days. It is better than staying home without money and practise - so now I will be without money, but getting some practise and working habits. It is also quite close to my home (well, 20 minutes of traveling

Once more sorry for low activity. Thesis, thesis. Thesis. Thesis. DIES.
Today a white tiger in Czech ZOO Liberec attacked a young guy (he was on practise, not a visitor), who was saved thanks to bravery of two female keepers who hit the cat with some bucket to get his attention. The tiger escaped from the exhibit, so three people, all of them injured by the tiger, stayed inside the cage. The tiger was shot with some drugs and went limp. Fortunately, this whole accident seems to have a happy end, injuries are not severe and the tiger has not been harmed. Just wow, huh... Drama!
Finally a feature for Kiriban winner and then some animal photos. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, so I can finish my thesis soon. Thank you!

I would like to apologize. I was so annoyed with the thieves (and I still am) and all similar ignorrant persons, that I almost stopped replying to notes and comments... Let's say that if you write "use of this photo is allowed only with written permission" and then you do not answer those, who DO ask, it is definitely not the most fair thing :/ so sorry, I promise I will answer as soon as possible. It really would not be fair if those, who are able to politely ask for permission, would suffer for the acts of the thieves. Once more, I am sorry that allowed all those rude thieves to annoy me that much that I stopped replying...
And... after several months of terrible overeating caused by diploma thesis, family problems stress, I had no courage to try to use a scale to check my weight. I just felt that my body is covered with fat again. But then I decided to move and checked it - I found out that after all those months of "piggy" overeating, I got only some 4 kilos back, which

PEOPLE, I have a small request! Czech ZOOs currently have a contest - they are fighing to get people vote for the most beautiful baby animal born in 2012.
Can you, please, look at this facebook page ===> http://www.facebook.com/uniezoo/app_129511740507349 and vote for BABY DONKEY EMA from ZOO Děčín?
ZOO Děčín is a tiny but very nice ZOO, I would love to suport them somehow - and they are close to victory!
Only Dvur Kralove is closer, but I do not like this ZOO for their terrible marketing and bad attitude to visitors...
I bet people from ZOO Děčín would be happy if they won!

At first, thank you for very interesting discusion under my last journal - although I did not reply to every comment, be sure I read every single one! do not be afraid, I definitely do not judge USA and its citizens through some reality shows here in the Czech republic we also have really stupid shows and so, I think it is a world epidemy I always keep in mind that USA is huge country with a large scale of people of all the qualities some of you said they are ashamed to be Americans - I do not think there is a reason for it, as your country has f.e. many good universities or scientists!

I can not believe it. That person only REPOSTED my and other photographers photos, usually adding no description which would inform about animals. They just posted photos.
But when I post a photo, I in 99% include description which should educate people about portraid animal - but still this person blames me from not being interested in animals????

Stock Resources GROUPS DirectoryThis article is meant to serve as a list of groups at deviantART that focus on art resources.Stock Resources GROUPS Directory5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I know you can find all these groups and more in dA's Groups search, but how much time would it take you to find them all? And how many dead accounts and unrelated results might you sift through to find what you're looking for? (I did that very thing for this article, and I can tell you one rather probable answer to both questions is, "a lot.")
Not that I'm complaining. I simply saw an opportunity to compile a listing of deviantART's 80 most helpful groups about resources. But let's back up a bit.
Before I began this directory, I felt it would be important to introduce everyone to a place (the place) for dA's resource providers (and users) to get acquainted with the world of stock photos, textures, PSD files, tutorials, and all that other great stuff artists need to create their masterpieces!

I went to my beloved ZOO Olomouc to photograph animals yesterday - I needed a break from the thesis writing.
I spent hour or maybe more with my favourite wolf subspecies - Iberian wolves. They were very active and even aggresive, snapping their jaws and snarrling a lot. One of them tried to catch a crazy rodent. It was fun and I got many photos for you
But the bad news - fennec fox got a new light in their enclosure. It is a red light and it TOTALLY does not allow you to photograph, because the specific light ruins the texture of the animal's fur and there is no chance to get any photo I am sad about it, I loved this place for fennec photography now it has been lost... in ZOO Dvur Kralove, they put those foxes into very dark indoor exhibit, so this place is also lost and in Prague, you never see them... Hm... I am a bit sad about it, I would miss those little guys

YOU CAN STOP CHARGEBACKSUpdate x2: More helpful information for dealing with chargebacks-->YOU CAN STOP CHARGEBACKS7 months ago in Personal More Like This
It has a lot of insightfulness, please do read c:
Also, as many commenters have said, look into your buyer because letting them commission you. If they have commissioned people throughout more than 3 months, you should be good. Also, if they never commission someone before, it may be best to only let them buy cheaper commissions from you. (Under 20USD) If you want to start commissioning people, do buy cheaper commissions first, because this issue is putting a LOT of artists on the edge, making it harder to trust people.
Also, I few people mentioned Google Wallet, if you know if it really does help with chargebacks, then please do comment. c:
Update: Turns out that sadly, this way still doesn't stop the chargebacks. I know the site says it can help, but thank you witchpaws for taking the time to call PP, and they informed her that it doesn't help. As long as a person can 'claim' that their
