Everyone is different and experiences growing up differently. Thus, everyone is going to have a range of different beliefs and faiths, either what they have crafted for themselves, or based on an actual religious culture or traditional/family influence, or they have none at all. Regardless, your belief or disbelief is your choice alone, and you take what you want from it.
Sometimes, people feel so strongly about a faith or opinion they have come to know that they want to share it with friends and family, possibily just a natural desire when you feel deeply about something.
I don't think there is anything wrong with doing so. The listener may be curious to hear what you have to say after all, either on the topic at hand or just to learn how you think as a person.
What I do find wrong is when your words

It belonged to a relative who had moved in to a flat where sky visibility/light pollution is pretty bad, so he gave it to me. It's still pretty bright around my house since I live near the city, but I managed to find Saturn last night regardless. Had to manually scan an area in the sky for it since the finder scope was off, but has since been aligned. I can't really explain to you how breath taking it is to come across such a view with your own eyes and effort.
I then suffered from an intense headache from using this for too long. Luckily a storm blew over and forced me to go inside. Ain't love tough.
If anyone is interested, I can post up photos of my findings in future journals. I'm already looking in to cameras that can support telescope extensions.

I haven't been on here for a while, so I'm a little embarrassed posting a journal after all this time, urgh. Firstly, sorry for vanishing suddenly so many months ago, and thank you to all the people who sent me notes and tried to contact me during this time! Or for simply just sticking around as a watcher. I hope to slowly check out all the art posted in my absence, reply to notes and messages, and eventually get back in to the groove of this site. Though my presence on here will not be the same as before, I have decided to focus mostly on personal art now (I'd really love to start working on my Crow and Girl series for starters) and thus won't be posting much group art/doing RPs, but my OCs certainly will continue to feature in my works now, and, with your persmission ofcourse, your OC's too! I am still very keen to do a series of cave exploration drawings with Ahnka and Rhyona so I will not be leaving HPM! I am also very keen for LumaKuma's Pokemon highschool group, :d

My 2015 so farI was feeling a little guiltily distant from all my DA friends after being off DA for a little while, and I couldn't really keep up with what was going on anymore, so I took a break and have been drawing my own things for a few months (thanks for all the people who have been faving my original stuff btw!) However, lately I have been feeling like giving RPing a go again and making some friends to chat with and commenting on art again, so I joined Johto-Journey and I am already having a lot of fun, and have a few drawings planned!My 2015 so far in Personal More Like This
During this break, I had also started full-time work at the local veterinary clinic, so I was pretty scarce online all-round.

This is a topic that has been on my mind for a few weeks now, I couldn't have said it any better than how LumaKuma has in her recent journal. Totally worth a read if you get time!
It's a rising 'trend' that I've seen take over a few groups now, and I didn't know whether my uncomfortable attitude towards it was right or wrong. I'm really glad to hear more people have taken notice, because they explain it better.

The Traditional Through a Cracked PrismCreating art for those who feel a real resonance with traditional anchoring fairy tales, ~cidaq also draws in those who enjoy darker tales of mystery and films noir.

cidaq’s paintings are unique and instantly identifiable as hers —
Even though at first glance one might think them antique illustrations preserved from century-old
products advertisements or children’s books. But one is drawn to look closer and see that a very
modern, very mischievous intelligence is obviously at play. The media of pencil, inks and watercolors

Lucifer - The Fallen by *RainerKalwitz
Marble, Granite, Bronze, Silver, Gold!
Early statuary depicted one’s god’s, and since the medium is
as much the message as the visual message itself – the medium had
to proclaim: This god is as forever lasting as this stone that His
rendering is hewn out of! But all that is solid eventually melts
away into the air, even the most powerful ancient gods and kings –
As the poet Shelley so poignantly noted in Ozymandias.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the

I Fixed MyselfRough times, rough times man. But it sounds like everyone here is collectively going through that? This is the first time I've turned my computer on in a month. School starts tomorrow and I'm not stressed, I've figured out my diet, I've figured out my workout schedule. Just got back from a chill vacation with my vietlamb. I'm ready to come back here and start drawing again and talking to all my lovely friends. If any of y'all go through what I went through I seriously recommend seeking help. Granted the first medication I was put on sent me spiraling out of control, I got put on a better one and I'm feeling so much better. So yeah.I Fixed Myself in Personal More Like This

My DeviantArt StoryI apologize for this will not be sappy.My DeviantArt Story in Personal More Like This
Well first off, how did a jackalope like me stumble onto DA? As a dumb kid the only thing I did when I could get my grubby hands on the family computer was play Neopets (Over 10 years and going strong). But I was happy, it was simpler times.
Then I think my parents got mad at me for constantly drawing and going through the motions of:
Me: I finished my drawing! You like it?
Parent: Wow, it's so good!
Me: What do you like about it?
Parent: Can't you just take a compliment?
So parent told 14 year old me that I should post my pictures online to get good critiques from a plethora of artists. Ah, but DA was not that site! behold, it was Elfwood. Only cool people know what that is.
I found a really awesome artist on that dismal, limited site, :iconcoffinberry: ♥
I saw that she posted a lot more images on DA so I decided to make an account to watch her updates. I was so afraid to seem childish that

I always knew you were like that
A player, a cheater, a stealer
Taking girls hearts and tearing them apart
You would think I'm sad but I'm not
It's your own loss, not mine
The truth set me free from your cobweb of misery
Trying to get all the blood out of me
Ha! Try all you want boy but I don't bleed like the rest
Feelings for you are all gone
The nice boy I once knew was only wearing a mask
You're full of shit, treating me like trash.
But I guess that's how we learn isn't it
How you have to be pushed around
To find out that inside you are much stronger than they think
You get up and you fight back, this time I'm on the right track
I warned you not to mess with me
But you're so good at ignoring me
That when I hit you with all these words
It really took you by surprise didn't it?
You didn't think I had it in me, did you?
I'm not afraid of you anymore,
The way I used to be before
Back then when I'd see you I'd get butterflies
