I am very scared about my grade in Math. I have always struggled in that class, and worked very hard to keep my grade up. The marking period doesn't end until Friday, and I am afraid that my grade will go down drastically by then because of all the tests we have to take this week. No matter how much I try, it seems that I just cannot understand the information I'm learning. Please pray for me to be able to understand what I am learning, and for me to do well in my class. Thank you so much for your prayers! God bless you!
Prayer request from anonymous
My sister needs prayer. My whole family is fed up with her attitude.
This is her first day going to a program called Brain Balance (see http://www.deviantart.com/users/outgoing?http://www.brainbalancecenters.com/). It's a physical therapy that heals people from ADD, anger management, Dyslexia, etc. through work-outs. I've attended Brain Balance before and I have been healed there.

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

For a while now, I choose a childfree life. For reasons relating to my family's medical history, both physical and mental, ethical and worldly reasons, I have choose to not have kids. However, that's a whole another story.
People have bingoed me and said, "You haven't found the right man," or "The joy of a child will make up for the loss of money." To address this... I have not found the right person, and that means, if there's guys, girls, mtfs, ftms, or genderqueer people out there for me, who doesn't want a child or children, DAMN RIGHT I HAVEN'T FOUND THE RIGHT ONE, GENIUS!
As for joy, babies don't make everything better. No, they don't. My sixteen year old cousin got pregnant and her boyfriend has been rumored to jump ship when they have a child. The child was born last month. With her, she has to deal with the fa

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

King James Version (KJV)
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)
Mas él herido fue por nuestras rebeliones, molido por nuestros pecados; el castigo de nuestra paz fue sobre él, y por su llaga fuimos nosotros curados. Todos nosotros nos descarriamos como ovejas, cada cual se apartó por su camino; mas Jehová cargó en él el pecado de todos nosotros.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)
Dios es nuestro amparo y fortaleza, Nuestro pronto auxilio en las tribulaciones. Por tanto, no temeremos, aunque la tierra sea removida, Y se traspasen los montes al corazón del mar; Aunque bramen y se turben sus aguas, Y tiemblen los montes a causa de su braveza. Selah.

Okay, so it seems some hacker is going around hacking people's accounts so as to make them block the person's friends and vise versa.
So if any of y'alls friends start saying rude comments to y'all, chances are it's the hacker trying to make you block your friends. So if I start saying mean things to y'all, then that means the hacker's trying to fuck with y'alls minds and such, so don't pay attention to me if I start yelling and screaming at y'all for no reason.
Thank you for your time, and I hope for y'all to spread the word so as to keep your own friends informed of the situation.

Been some time..This is just one of those days,Been some time..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
where it is raining outside,
and I'm trapped inside.
Ciel, Metro, and Charile will always be there for me.
The three of them are similar to each other,
but they are all unique.
Charile and I tend to have problems.
Some days he'll be my best friend,
while other days he ignores my calls.
We've been through a lot togeather.
He has seen me at my best,
grinning and laughing.
Then of course there are those days,
where he saw those bitter tears from my eyes.
Charlie is a good friend nonetheless.
I rely on him often.
Time between the two of us has been short,
but I rely on her as if Ciel was my life support.
From being a light in my dark,
a saviour in times of need,
Ciel doesn't get enough credit as I give her.
I cause her stress.. To the point that her body is engulfed in heat.
It is my fault.
My fault she gets burned out,
and I am to blame.
Do I feel pity for burning her out everyday?
So to Ciel,
I'm sorry for the poor treatment,
A Request? More like "Draw that!"(2)Hi guys!A Request? More like "Draw that!"(2)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you may know, I'm running a series called "The Murder of Me", and I'm currently on Issue 2: The Return. Long story short, I made a journal a while back saying that, with your permission, I can make a cameo of your character in Issue 2. Now, since we're close to the end of Issue 2, I would like to offer you all a chance to request your character into my comic again.
Just like last time, if you'd like me to draw your fan character or OC as a cameo in TMOM (The Murder of Me) Issue 2: The Return, I only request a reference sheet. Or a picture of some sort involving them in it (full body please). I also need the reference sheets in color. Other wise, I'll assume your character is colorless. (And we don't want that!)
This can be any character you'd like, or you can be like me and just request yourself to be put in the comic. Trust me, I put myself as a cameo all the time--it'll be no biggie if you want to jump in too.
Again, I hope I can get as many

Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:
