The Death. Sammi laid in her final resting spot, her skin remained porcelain, her bright lips now were pale. She was laying in black clothing, her skin looked prefect. They did her make up, just around her eyes. She was beautiful. Her hair remained down like she had liked it before she had went through that incident. Her hands were folded and placed on her lower stomach. Her eyes lids laid over her eyes, her horrid and feared eyes were hidden. It was all his fault, he actually did love her but never really wanted to admit it but now it was too late. Sammi was gone for good. Everyone glared at him, it was only an accident…. There would be no time to tell her that he loved her, there was no way to make it all better. The line and crowd around her casket went down, people started to leave and say their finally goodbyes. He was the only one left, he wanted to have alone time with her so he can announce his real feels and his goodbyes. He went up next to her casket and kneeled, andThe Death. in Personal More Like This

We give dolls to daughters that they might practice mothering and nurturing. But dolls often become surrogates for female angst and little girl social clique wars. Dolls can empower fantasies of future romance, or become twisted into voodoo charms by a desire for vengeance. As society becomes more reflective on childhood in our personal life growth, so too have artists developed the meanings of dolls along myriad lines of psychic inquiry.
European dolls were at first made to represent adults. It wasn't until the 1850’s that childlike dolls appeared.

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel.

Derpy Hooves vs HasbroSo it has come to my attention that recently Hasbro has (possibly?) ordered a cease and desist letter to WeLoveFine.com for selling Derpy Hooves related T-shirts. This, coupled with the mysterious disappearance of the episode "The Last Roundup" (which is the one where Derpy talks) from iTunes has gotten fans freaked out and panicky. The general belief is that Hasbro wants to stop the cannoning of internet named Derpy from the MLP series due to the backlash of people getting angry for them for doing so in the first place.

Sins of an ArtistI've been under fire recently for having the audacity to admit publicly that improving my art has never been, and never was, an ultimate goal of mine. Apparently that's like committing some sort of mortal sin in the art community. I've had trouble expressing myself about it too, because brushing off improvement for improvement sake makes me look like I'm uncaring, egocentric, and stubborn. But after a recent post I was given much more clarity in understanding the issue and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.Sins of an Artist in Personal More Like This
In the recent exchange I was basically told this: "If doing what you love isn't about dedicating your life to improving your art, you aren't an artist."
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but making art has never been solely about the technical expertise. Even in college, outside the handful of foundation courses you take in freshman year, perfection of the craft is often secondary to concepts and ideas and your ability to evoke feelings and emotions in your audience.
Why Cynical Improvement Is Bad For YouSince we're on the subject of taboos, I feel it necessary to talk about this one. This one pisses me off and it's very much a cornerstone to a bigger issue with our artistic community: The idea and assumption that as an artist you MUST improve at all times. 24/7. No exceptions. Every work you produce must be 10x better than your last. You must constantly strive for perfection. To ignore this "truth" is to commit the terrible sin of rejecting the very concept of improvement, and you will never break out of your "comfort zone."Why Cynical Improvement Is Bad For You in Personal More Like This
I'm here to tell you that this is hogwash.
You should strive to improve. Never say that I don't encourage improvement. It's why you go to school, why you go to college, and why after college you continue to work on your art. You always want to be better. The problem is that far too many people have a strictly binary concept of what "better" is and on how to "improve."
First off, there is no pinnacle of perfection. There is no

Trying to figure out the Zelda timeline has been a geek pastime for decades, and it's only been made more desirable thanks to Nintendo releasing cryptic responses of both "yes we have one" to "no we don't" over the years.

First up you need to understand one thing... there IS a split in the timeline thanks to Ocarina of Time. Yes the split timeline theory IS correct... sort of.

I don't want this to sound mean, but it needs to be said. This is where it becomes very important to understand the fine line between being a fan of the show and thinking that because you've invested so much energy into the show that you're entitled to things.

Ode to the WiiMy last journal seems to have gone over pretty well. So since the Wii is slowly starting to come to a close before Nintendo's next big console release (The Wii U), I thought it would be fun to talk about games which are for the Wii and which might've been overlooked for one reason or another.Ode to the Wii in Personal More Like This
It should be noted that not ALL of these are the most AMAZING and BEST GAMES EVER! But I do think that at least 90% of these games should at least be looked at. If you have a Wii and complain that it doesn't have any games that interest you, I strongly recommend you go through this list. If you see a game you haven't heard about or played, rent it and try it out for yourself. There are a lot of gems which didn't get any press or were generally overlooked because of excessive amounts of "shovel-ware" titles clouding up retail stores.
The general perception of the Wii is that there aren't any good games for it. Prove the naysayers wrong and check these titles out. The best part? Most of these titles

Pass this around and make sure to save your information and other files in CD's, Flash Drives, anything you can use. Get rid of downloaded Copyright software and/or Programs, and illiegal Music and Videos. They can use it against you.
In summary, all major American ISP's are implementing a system to spy on their users in order to police copyright infringement. There was no legal debate let alone any discussion with the users, and this decision was simply taken and will be applied starting 1 or 12 July. Users considered to be infringing copyright will be punished in several ways... such as their internet being cut off, selective websites being censored, their bandwidth being lowered, and if the offense is repeated users will be constrained to go to special copyright lessons to be allowed on the internet again.
I believe that this is the worst attack

This change is a little different, since it involves a feature that has been in place for a long time. We think it deserves an announcement of its own, ahead of time.
The current deviantART thumbnails (the smaller versions of deviations) have served the community well for years; however, there's always room for improvement.
Some of the problems with existing thumbnails are: they leave a lot of blank space around them, there isn't a lot of room for text for literature deviations, and the thumbnails don't present very tall/wide images well.
The New Thumbnails
Now, we've created a new style of thumbnail, which hopes to solve a lot of these problems.

She was sick for the past month, She missed what she should have gotten that month, and she was getting EXTREMELY emotional. So, she was Germean most of time. She was tired so the thought of possible pregnancy didn't strike her mind. It was seven o' clock in the morning, so she didn't want to wake anybody up to come talk to her about why she was sick. She laid there and laid there and laid there, but she could NOT go back to sleep. She started singing the Alphabet backwards and starting dozing off.

It was so much harder than I thought is was going to be. I was only able to find the primary colors (red, yellow, blue) and green at the store.

everybody, thank you SO much for all of the happy birthday wishes! It means so much to me.
as for how yesterday went.. It started out okay. Around four o'clock I started getting a huge headache and stomach pains. It got worse and by six I was in my room with all the lights off.. So.. Last part if the day didn't go so well.. I still have a nagging headache and slightly sore stomach... But I'm alright
we didn't do anything for my birthday yesterday. For three reasons: 1. The puppy was sort of an e
Finding friendsI was on facebook the other day, and a thought hit me..Finding friends in Personal More Like This
If I have a facebook, there's a big chance that my old friends (the ones i moved away from like 9 years ago) have a facebook too.
So after contemplating this thought, I went into stalker mode and searched some names on facebook. XD
I searched for my two best friends; they're the only two that I remember the name of..
I couldn't find any results for one of them, but I can't quite remember how to spell her name .. so I gave up on that..
The other friend, I'm like, 90% sure I found her..
The only way it's not her, is if there's another girl with the same name in almost the exact same area on facebook.. which is possible.. that's why I'm only 90% sure..
but with my facebook creeping, I am pretty sure it's her XD
I'm such a terrible person XD
The problem is.. being the shy, cautious, awkward me, I'm afraid to message her to find out if it is actually her!
And then part of me is wondering if I want to get back in touch with her.. it's

I'll be gone for the weekend, and possibly till Wednesday!

Goodlater, people of deviantART!
not looking forward to all the messages I'll have when I get back XD
Little bit of a rantI think it's interesting and funny (in a good way) that my one video, in which I'm only talking, is so far getting more views than my other videos where something actually happens XDLittle bit of a rant in Personal More Like This
But that's okay, I'm very grateful for any views, no matter what video they're on.
And now for a little bit of a controversial subject...
feel free to stop reading; I am not liable for any butt hurt you feel after reading this
Recently on facebook, some of my friends were discussing 'racial slurs' and how it's bad. And then in another post, they posted a picture that in a jokingly way, bashed Utah using a picture of a weirdly dressed woman with majorly bumped up hair.
I have a problem with this, not huge, but enough so that I wish to go into an in depth rant about it. You've been warned.
My issue is that people are still getting butthurt over things like that. By 'racial slurs', I'm assuming things like 'nigger', 'wetback', and general stereotypical comments.
We shouldn't care about that stuff anymor
Calling PeopleI found a really pretty and seemingly well tempered standard poodle stud. He's a nice 'irish setter' red color. I emailed the lady Tuesday night. She called and left a voice mail last night, saying she would prefer if I called her.Calling People in Personal More Like This
I don't like talking to people.. especially over the phone. Email is so much less awkward..
But I'm fine with it. If it's what she wants to do, then I'll do it.
I'm scared. I don't want to call her. I have to though. I've learned that I just have to stop thinking for a second, long enough to dial the number. That way by the time I start thinking again and have second thoughts, the phone's already ringing, and I can't back out XD
I don't know why I have such a problem calling people.. stranger danger!
I guess I should call her now.. it's getting kind of late.. I DON'T WANNA!
Do it for Brizz! Take one for the team!
I'm Back! 8DHI!!I'm Back! 8D in Personal More Like This
I'm finally back from California!
It was nice to see family and I hated leaving my sick grandpa, but it is so nice to be home! I missed my dad so much!
But not his depressed-angry-ranting.. -_-.. and yes, that started back up literally the very first hour I got back..
But it's okay, cause I missed him anyway!
I didn't get many pictures, unfortunately.. the trip was mainly to take care of my grandpa, so I didn't get out of the house much.. but I did get some pool and flower pictures ^_^
For the past like three hours I've been dealing with my dA messages.. man I had a lot! XD
I got so frustrated I eventually just deleted all of the deviation messages.. so sorry if I missed any of your pictures! I had like 5,000+ deviations, so I'm sure you'll understand..
I still haven't finished going through all the my journal messages.. I had a lot of those too.. and I don't really feel like reading right now XD
I did get through all my messages/comments though.
I think I might upload a few photo
