Today was rather weird for me.
It began in I dream I was having that was shockingly vivid involving my mother and my fiance.
Now, my mother is no longer in the picture of my family life. She's been out of it for the past 6 or 7 years. So it was weird to dream about her as though she'd been living with us this entire time.
So the dreams starts off weird in the beginning, I don't remember it. But I do remember my sister calling saying she needed to be picked up from her friends house because she was feeling sick. It was about one or two in the morning, and my mother and I were still up since we're natural insomniacs. I go to my mom and say, "Momma, Shelby called. She's sick and needs us to go get her from Chris' house."
Ok two weird things about what I said:

Well as of late, I've been in a weird funk. I think it's the rainy weather we've been having and the fact that Pandora is trolling me with sad music.
I think there's something wrong with me as well. I'm losing sight in my right eye, which is weird because I've had 20/20 vision since I was little. I can hardly read anymore, because it's as though the letters mesh together and pop off the page and it makes my eyes cross. I've also struggled with spelling and concentrating on forming sentences. I've had to seriously sit here and think on how to format this. And this is so unlike me. Usually i can just sit here and ramble on like nobody's business, but lately I can hardly type anything up without SCREWING it up in some way. I guess I gotta go get checked out, idk.
And sorry guys, but that's put a HUGE ass dent in my writting and writting commission. Plus my writers block. So I'm basically fucked. I'm trying guys, I really am. I force myself to try to write a little everynight, but when

Downward SpiralI apologize for not submitting as much lately. It seems I hit a downward spiral with both my muse and my mood, and I haven't been finding the motivation or desire to write much at all. Luckily, by now, I can feel it coming back a little. Hopefully, I'll get some writing done tonight. I plan to attempt to write a GamTav story in celebration of today, the date that GamTav conversation was first posted in Homestuck (the one where Gamzee invites Tavros for some 'sloppy makeouts').Downward Spiral in Personal More Like This

That's also not helping, but luckily, I have no drive to write any stories for it...yet.

Procrastination and MoirailsFirst off, my moirail's birthday is this Saturday. I've known him since the first day of Middle School. I owe to him my writing ability now. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have started writing. I started because I wanted to share with him my ideas and I sucked at explaining out loud. It started with rough outlines, than rough stories, and so on and so forth, and he worked at my side as my loyal editor extraordinaire. Throughout the years, we enjoyed anime together and than yaoi, and survived our own period of bullying and were the targets of unfair, cruel rumors. By the time we reached High School, we were still among the strange, but we didn't care because we knew we had each other and our friends.Procrastination and Moirails in Personal More Like This

Americans have a long summer vacation tradition of visiting the foreign capitals of the world and being sure to spend at least one day in each nation’s most iconic art museum. In Paris, we visit the Louvre. In Madrid, the Prado. In Rome, the Borghese. We feel far more comfortable in identifying the different peoples of our planet through examples of their greatest art works than we do about identifying ourselves as being represented by any one iconic “American” art museum or artist. Maybe the country is just too big for one musuem and so it has always fallen to our pop arts to carry the true visual narrative of what’s going on in the hearts and minds of the masses.

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

Long Post of Information of Toontown's ClosureIf you want to read something regarding the closure of Toontown Online that may be perhaps very interesting, I'd recommend reading it. My friend Yumeko found it but be warned; it is very long.Long Post of Information of Toontown's Closure in Personal More Like This
"At the May meeting, the poster Tom Barrister (not his real first or last name), the poster toon town, and I were present, since we've all done much freelance work for Disney and all were veterans of Toontown.
The first order of business was that the game had lost $3.5 million in Q1 ($1 million more than Q1 of 2012), and what, if anything, could be done to reverse that. Some of the staff had various ideas. It was decided that one of them might be workable (it turned out not to be).
The next order of business was whether it would be profitable to build the prototype for version 2. The cost of such a project was a minor issue. The major issue was that the game itself couldn't even sustain itself if version 2 was already paid for and in place. The hacking problem could be solved. What couldn't be so

How To Get An Alpha Key (Serious Guide.) Hey there everyone!How To Get An Alpha Key (Serious Guide.) in Personal More Like This
Welcome to the guide to getting an alpha key! If you're tired of unoriginal, knock-knock joke contests were jokes are just copied and pasted, this guide highers your chances of you being picked! Well, let's get into it!
Just a little note before you start reading on - alpha testing and beta testing are very different. Alpha testing is basically running around, looking for bugs and barely playing the game. Beta testing is different to that. If you're willing to run around looking for bugs, continue.
1) First of all, you must have a Toonbook account otherwise this guide is completely useless to you. You also must be willing to work hard for it. Don't think this is the time to be lazy if you want an alpha key!
2) Go to this page ( http://www.toonbook.me/posts/362723/too-many-secrets ) and download the program. ( https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3925811/NumberGame.exe if the page doesn't work. ) https://www.virustotal.com/en/fi

Few Words About TTR and the ClosingOkay. It's been a while since ToonTown officially closed and we're all still fighting for it back. If we're sure that ToonTown Rewritten is going to come out, then it's just like that time Toontown went down for update for a few weeks. This is definitely more than a few weeks, but just think of it as a long maintence update.Few Words About TTR and the Closing in Personal More Like This
There's also a ton of info on this new MMO that I've seen, and some journals have been done on it in this group in the past. I have a lot of hope in all of these theories (most), and when ToonTown did close, I didn't cry -- want to know why? Because I had hope. I think we all can believe that ToonTown will, one day, be back on the air. I'm very suspicious of Disney right now. I've heard so much on this unannounced MMO, but I heard someone say it would replace all lost when they closed ToonTown, Pirates, and Pixies. I have a lot of hope, though, on ToonTown Rewritten. Sure, ToonLand is a bit iffy and others have promised to make a game but they haven't been rele

Today, my friend with cancer got given the alpha key. He may not survive to see TTRW open. He's very sick and hoping that the treatment to cure him from his cancer(a blood cancer, leukemia) works. TTR did a great thing in giving him an alpha key. It really helped him a lot and he was very proud. He said he'll try test the game as much as possible. (I hope he lives,) I'm not going to go to deep here or I'll try not to at least. You guys should be happy that you're alive right now. Life is short -- Try not to waste your life dwelling in the past. TTR is like a new beginning for all of us. Try be happy for the people who got an alpha key -- we're even lucky that TTR is getting done. Most closed games don't have private servers.
Sure things are meant to end but think of this like a rebuild? Well, whatever. My main point here is that TTR is just an amazing thing. I'm sure you g

So much time has passed, and now the game of our childhood is closing. Toontown is closing. Do you even realize how hurting this is to us players? We made so much memories, friends, people in this game.. many people do not want Toontown to close at all, hence the creation of this petition.
I hope you wake up and realize this is the worst decision you can probably make, tons of people love Toontown and some even cried upon hearing the closing because of how much Toontown means to them! Even though you have publicly announced the closing, there is still some time to rethink about your actions and how much people are angry and upset about it; many people have threatened to stop being loyal to Disney, I don't want it to happen and either would you but please just save Toontown.. it's hurting to see our childhood game vanish... just give it a chance, many people also have hacked Club Penguin and surely you do not w
One Thing I'd Like To See In Toontown RewrittenI want to see people actually play the game. Don't get me wrong or anything, I'm not against people there or anything, I just don't support it. The people that were in Toon Valley were generally non-members who didn't even bother to help support Toontown because they didn't pay for membership. I understand that Disney didn't do many very good updates, but don't waste your time in Toon Valley and please play the game. However, now that Toontown Rewritten is here, they're going to be doing a lot of updates and we're even lucky to have the game back. It is okay to have fun and all, to goof off, that's acceptable. I just don't want people to have been on Toontown Rewritten for like a month and only be 16 laff. Toontown Rewritten is going to have lots of cool updates that will entertain us a lot so please actually play the game if you were someone in Toon Valley and didn't task or pay for membership.

Cancer is the most common cause of non-accidental deaths in Teens?
There are 2400 teens diagnosed with cancer each year.
Teens are diagnosed with some of the most aggressive cancers, made worse by there growth spurts.

The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!

Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.
