.my thoughts want to.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
flee, but there is no fire
escape, no guide to the
exit of my head, and they
consider digging a hole
there, i feel it, maybe a
crack just wide enough
to crawl through, drop a
rope through the back
of my neck and climb
down, prise open the
earth - a tremble turns
into an avalanche, and
a snowflake in the flurry
wonders am i the same as
all the rest? he coughs and
splutters and chokes on
it - i wake in the early
morning, heart lodged
in my throat, that red
bird in that chimney, he's
going to starve there and
i'll be spitting feathers;
i won't claw the inside
of my neck again for
nobody, i'm past that,
pick me up by the
scruff and drop me
wherever you're going -
but wait, when lightning
strikes a tree, well isn't
that love? and when the
rain pelts the ground,
well what about then?
when you miss the ache
of wounds as they're
healing, is that it? well
when your nose bleeds,
that's still love right?
cos i've got an entire
pack to get through -
and what a funny
thing it is
StoryHi Guys,Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's time I told my story.
My name is Lani, and I am 17 years old. At the age of 14, I was cyber abused by a guy who thought it was amusing to force me to do things on webcam for his entertainment, using the lack of trust between my parents and I as a form of blackmail. I have never gotten over this.
I have been a self harmer for three years, and in that time attempted suicide 7 times, however never bad enough to end up in A&E. This has made me afraid to take medication and even when I am in extreme pain, I will be reluctant to take any form of painkiller. A year ago, I met a man who I thought could change my life. But in the end, he ended up making my situation worse because I wanted to do all I could to help him, but you can't help someone who didn't want to be helped. This made me suicidal, and made it that I had to see a therapist, whom proved that I had the symptoms of clinical depression. I couldn't eat without being ill, I could
Eeren's Features: HAIR!!Eeren's Features: HAIR!!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This time I decided to dedicate this feature to a particular and much more precise theme: hair!
Many people keep asking me how I draw my hair and when I browse other artists' deviantions hair is always one of the most eye-catching things for me (and for many other users, for what I can deduce from the comments)!
So... let's try to unveil the secret of hair together!
Since ancient times, hair has not only been a defense against cold, but it also has had great social significance for human beings.
It grows on most external areas of the human body and the highly visible differences between male and female facial hair are a notable secondary sex characteristic.
Hair has always been a sign of social and health status: they can represent ethnic ancestry, the growth of facial hair is a sign of puberty in men, while white hair or baldness are signs of age or genetics.
Not only hair may be a symbol, but the way it is styled can surely
Voices Against Discrimination #2 - Depression dis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of peopleVoices Against Discrimination #2 - Depression 11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate?
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true.
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new, rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers. Difference is everywhere.
Voices against Discrimination is a blog series aiming to shed light on different part of our society. A window into things and people we usually fear, in hopes that we can make a difference.
By all means, these blogs are not meant to offend or disrespect anyone. These blogs have a single aim: to spread awareness.

See Your Watcher GraphOur of curiosity, I wrote this script that makes a graph of a deviant's watcher gain over time, starting with the day the deviant gained his/her first watch.See Your Watcher Graph1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My graph spans about two years and looks like this:
Interestingly enough, it turns out that the largest peaks correlate not with the days when I received a DD, but with the days when I wrote PE articles and landed in the footer. The DD's led to small peaks, but they are surprisingly hardly noticeable in the graph.
Anyways, thought I'd share since it's pretty interesting to see what your graph comes out to be. All you have to do is go to the page linked above and enter your username into the box.

10 ways to get motivatedDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to get motivated1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Motivation is such an important part of our lifes. Without it, we wouldn't get anything done. It's the reason why we do the things we do. And when we have the lack of it, then It can get quite depressing and give us an anxiety that keeps us away from making artworks. And it sucks. So here are my 10 tips that have helped me over the time and I hope that It'll be helpful for you too.
Have some inspirational quotes all around your workplace. Put the artworks you adore as your desktop picture. See them as motivation, something to strive for, to remind yourself what matters to you and trigger positive thoughts. Try to write an inspiring letter to your future-self - about what and why you want to achieve and whenever you'll feel down, read it and you'll be inspired to move on.
