Mind = Blown.So... this is the diagnostic criteria for Asperger's Disorder, the same disorder I have, as denoted by the DSM-IV (the "manual" all psychologists use for diagnosis). I had been wanting this specific criteria for a while now, and I finally found it while researching for a paper I'm writing on the disorder.Mind = Blown.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I noticed something as I was reading it, something I had suspected for a long time...
So I fully evaluated this criteria list for Stein.
A.) Qualitative impairment in social interaction, as manifested by at least two of the following:
(1) marked impairment in the use of multiple nonverbal behaviors such as eye-to-eye gaze, facial expression, body postures, and gestures to regulate social interaction
(2) failure to develop peer relationships appropriate to developmental level
(3) a lack of spontaneous seeking to share enjoyment, interests, or achievements with other people (e.g., by a lack of showing, bringing, or pointing out objects of interest to other people)
(4) lack of

THESE FICShttp://mysixthsenseisstubborness.tumblr.com/post/30713104413/cold-and-unfeelingTHESE FICS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This short fic perfectly describes my view of Stein and also my life with Asperger Syndrome. This take on him pretty much proves he has the disorder and I can sympathize with the ideas in it so much. It's really beautiful to me that someone else thinks he actually cares about people and just doesn't know how to show it.
And this one... The idea of "hallucinating in sounds"... The way it's described here is so much more hypersensory than hallucination... Hearing everything... That's me as well. And the idea of discovery, and all the times he and I both didn't understand what we did wrong because we didn't understand people... All the times we were accused of things we didn't do, deemed bad children... How he and I were worse as children and got better with age... And how our mothers wept over us, were afraid of how we'd live our lives, couldn

Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!Photomanip: Working with Textures2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .
. . . is to serve as a resource for those of us who enjoy having textures be a predominant part of our photomanipulations and mixed media work so we can learn to use textures properly. Texture misuse or abuse can ruin an entire photomanipulation that otherwise might have been good. No matter how good we are at something, we can always grow to be better.

the thing about public domain is...Just because art is in the public domain does not mean the artist loses their rights over it.the thing about public domain is...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
just a friendly reminder that just because art is in the public domain does not mean it loses copyright value
and no artists you do not need to pay to copyright your work it is an automatic thing.
you only relinquish copyright if you state so yourself that people can use your work without permission
so unless you do that
they are stealing.
-just something you learned in college that I thought had relevance here-
have a nice day :3
Just realized I never clarified this with anyone.Probably one of my most important Soul Eater headcanons.Just realized I never clarified this with anyone.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I actually don't think Spirit ever had sex with another woman after he married his ex-wife. I think that like Maka, his ex-wife was overreactive and slightly feministic, and she saw cuddling and kissing with other women as offensive to her relationship as most people see sex with other women. Despite what we've seen in the anime/manga, I really can't see Spirit as the type to just want to get into someone's pants. I think he spent time with other women because of personal issues that made him crave attention. I also think that he married his ex-wife in the first place most likely because they were going steady as teens and he got her pregnant, and then they tried to cope with each other in order to raise Maka and not subject her to a young life with a single parent. I don't think Spirit was ready to commit to a relationship of that level and judging by how Maka described her mother's personality he probably felt trapped by her. B

Naruto Ryujinki (Dragon Blade) photoshoot extrasHey guys! I know I really suck at making my journals interesting XD But I'm not giving up. Here we go for one of my journals again!Naruto Ryujinki (Dragon Blade) photoshoot extras2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you probably have seen, I recently posted a photo of my Naruto Ryujinki cosplay to my gallery. I have finished making the cosplay not so long ago, but I still think I need to fix some things so it doesn't break during a convention.
In my Gallery :
Oh well, here are behind the scenes! Enjoy~ :
This was the very first picture! I was climbing up the mountain, and it was tricky because there were many insects and spiky plants. My poor Ninja shoes went through a lot.
This is a picture where I can see the view on Genova Italy (where I live). I thought it was a really cool view, and I added a "Fish eye" effect to the photo to make it seem even more like as if I were look
:DSo I had another FREAKING AWESOME dream last night...:D3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was at a Halloween party and Stein was there. In a highly revealing leather costume with body makeup that looked like an internal anatomy chart. Though I don't think he quite realized how hot it made him look. I think he was in it for the costume's effect mainly.
As if that wasn't enough, the dream gave me enough courage to actually hit on him (I was a bit older than I normally am so no pedo here, even though I'm 1 year away from it not being pedo anyway...). I believe I got a bit overbearing for him, and he called it a night and left. I felt bad for scaring him off so I went looking for him. I thought he had gone to another party down the street to get away from me, so I looked there but all I found was a group of guys in matching costumes fucking shit up and ruining that party. So I left and got out of their way, and apparently I was tipped off that Stein had actually gone upstairs to bed. So some of my friends (whom I had told
What is a Brony?While for a while the term Brony was used to mean boy, teenager or adult male who likes my little pony: friendship is magic, in this group we use the word to mean anybody who likes the show. A gender neutral word. Similarly to how "Cool story bro" isn't always directed at males.What is a Brony?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bronies, to me, are anybody who likes the show, no matter how much they like it.
False terms. Sane vs Rabid.
People obsess over all sorts of things don't they? I remember when I was younger being completely obsessed with Pokémon. I'd want all the games, I'd watch all the shows, I'd want all the trading cards. I still have many of my trading cards now because they still give me happiness when I can play with them with my friends. Did that make me a rabid Pokémon fan? No.
I think we all could use a bit of child like joy like that in our lives some times. Like when you are gaming or when you are maybe watching a funny YouTube video or whatever, it's nice to have that feeling.
Is it bad to be obsessive over a show

Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Copyright AbuseOk, the cold hard truth here, If you put something on the internet out to the public, expect it to the inspire others. It just shows they enjoy your work and want to learn from it, that's what being a Idol is about.Copyright Abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"In a recent decision of the Full Federal Court, the Court reaffirmed the fundamental legal principle that copyright does not protect ideas and concepts but only the particular form in which they are expressed. The effect of this principle is that you cannot copyright a style or technique. Copyright only protects you from someone else reproducing one of your actual artworks – not from someone else coming up with their own work in the same style."
You can become known for doing something a certain way but you can't own it, you can only own the work as a whole. The same go's for characters, if its just similar not the same copyrights don't apply, even more so if its a generic design to began with.
So people stop bother the DA staff with this nonsen

I had an epic dreamSo before I explain my epic dream I shall say something that happened yesterday. So I was at this store looking at the video games because I wanted to get something new (they rearranged the place so when I went to the place that used to have PS3 games there were only Xbox 360 games and I was like "BLASPHEMY!" but then I walked around and saw the PS3 games in there own shelf); and suddenly in the lower left I saw Dead Space 3. I was like -jaw drop- because I didn't know this place had Dead space 3 yet. And I picked it up and (Like that little girl from 'Despicable Me' I was like) "IT'S SO EPIC I'M GONNA DIE!!!" Sadly I don't have enough money yet, but I'm getting there. Also while I was there I went to the book store and was looking at magazines, I had this fishing magazine and I saw this picture of a little boy holding this weird fish (looked like it had the body of a barracuda, but it's head was more tuna or mackerel like) and I was like 'Woah what fish is that?'

My cat is trolling me :II'm beginning to suspect my cat is a troll and part Slenderman.My cat is trolling me :I2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here's the story; today I'm watching through Marble Hornets again 'cause it's been a while. And I leave to get a drink or something, and I leave my door open by accident (I normally leave it closed because my cat likes to look at my mouse tank and I'm afraid she'll knock it down and they'll get hurt). So I leave, and I come back and my cat is sitting on my desk. Like total Slendercat pose; sitting up strait and just staring at me not moving. Freaks me out! She has a bell and everything but she can move around without it making it ring. And she keeps doing it too, just appearing out of nowhere and sitting there in the slendercat pose not moving or making noises.
And she's being all cuddly and cute with a high pitched meowing 'cause she wants me to give her a piece of dried fish. So I take out the little bag of dry fish and I take one out to give to her and I put it in front of her nose. And she just turn
Season finaleand it's impact on my character: Citrus SqueezeSeason finale2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So the character story goes like this:
She is an earth pony that wanted nothing more than to become a Princess when she was younger. She worked hard to be nice and do the right thing no matter what, always took responsibility even when something wasn't her fault and tried to cheer people up when they seems a little down. She held the belief that if she worked hard that she could achieve anything, just like her father told her. One day she went to class on show-and-tell day and brought her makeshift wings and horn that she made herself, telling everyone in her class that she was going to be a Princess when she grew up. The class bully, Snapdragon, started laughing and pointed out that a pony could never become a Princess, a privilege only given to Alicorns, and soon the whole class was laughing at her. Classmates she thought were her friends openly mocked her from that day forward, led by Snapdragon.
She became heartbroken and gave up her
Don't take their wings awayOkay I don't know why but everytime I see someone with a clipped bird heck even a picture of one I get really mad or upset and really want to try and reason with the owner about itDon't take their wings away2 years ago in Personal More Like This
and I know I should calm down about that as its not my right to say but its just, I cant help it.
I find it even worse when I see photo's of the same bird with full primaries and then newer images with it clipped I just really feel people aren't taking into consideration the birds needs and only their own.
though I guess looking up the effects of wing clipping lately probably hasn't helped
(as it turns out to no surprise wing clipping as a psychological effect on the bird causing them to be more fearful of things passing over their head and an extreme fear of falling which obviously would not occur in a flighted bird)
I just feel people aren't doing their research on how it effects their birds mental health which is very important!
yeah i knwo I've ranted about this before but I just needed to ra
