but then I have had a challenging time trying to return both to my "regular life" as well as to my "life" here on dA, for a couple personal reasons. But anyway, I'm doing the best I can, and things are slowly improving-
but I just want to THANK YOU SO MUCH!

No one should stay in the same place forever.
Respecting others means you are also respecting yourself, we all effect each other, therefore if you are insulting or messing with someone, you are also messing with yourself because you are lowering the chance of seeing self improvement which leads to less improvement in your life.
In the end it doesn't matter how people treated you, what matters is how you treated them. You know, we all need to remember that what matters the most is that we've done our best to be someone we wanted to see in someone el

I can't Especially if I remember being insanely happy about 500 watchers just a few months back. Now this number has doubled in almost no time. So thank you! Thanks for all the support and feedback I have been getting from you, can't tell you how much this all means to me. This must be celebrated properly! *pops open champagne* No, just kidding, I don't have money for champagne. But I can pop open a beer and virtually touch glasses with you guys!

The light shone on my face, and I knew it was time to get up. I stretched my arms and suppressed a yawn. I didn’t feel like getting up today, but I knew that I had to. Soldiers didn’t have a privilege to sleep in like other humans could.
So, I rose in my bed, removing the locks of my messy hair from my face. I was wondering whether I should cut it shorter, since it was growing out so fast. Eren will probably scold me again for it.
When I got up, I quickly finished morning rituals. I washed my teeth, my face, I did all the morning exercises, then took a combat-shower. After that, I put my uniform, which took some time because of the straps… but again, I did it faster than anyone else from the unit.
Somehow, I would always end up being first. I showed up for the breakfast, taking a seat in front of a long, wooden table.

Tracing is Not Referencing (Tracing FAQ)I feel like this needs to be explained, since with the recent string of tracing drama around some particular people I've notice a lot of confusion going on. So I'll try to explain for people who may be confused on the subject. If anyone has a topic that they think I should add or discuss, just let me know. If you want to share this journal, then go ahead. No need to ask!More Like This
Referencing and Tracing
Tracing and referencing are NOT the same thing.
Here's the distinction most experienced artists would make on the two subjects.Referencing = Having some pictures nearby to show you how things are done. They're not under your drawing, they're all around so you can see and remind yourself of the proper way to draw something. You're using them as tools to draw your own thing. References are there to keep you on track, but you're doing your own work.Tracing = You've taken a picture (or more. You can trace from several pictures on one piece) and put it underneath your o

Please know that even though it is quiet.
Even if you don't like it.
Or you might think I am mad,
There's no need to feel bad.
You don't have to fill the silence
With pointless conversations.
Used as space fillers.
Where the words hang ominously in the air,
Expecting a response in return,
Sometimes we yearn
For a person who can enjoy the quiet times.
And know the just because not a single word was shared.
It was not the kind of silence that made you squirm,
But the occupied kind,
That we could share together.
That I can't go for hours
Surrounded by people,
Always having to come up with words for conversation.
I know it sounds silly,
But things like that party
You want to drag me out to.
Wear me out rather quickly.
Not that I don't appreciate your offer,
But it's just something that's sort of a bother
Verbalized words often times fail me.
Maybe that's why I don't do so good socially.

How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

The Tree as Beautiful MachineMore Like This
While searching DeviantArt for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on DeviantArt that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.

In A Maze
Most of the mazes in our gallery are of the outdoor garden variety. At least the “contestant” seeking escape from these mazes has the sun’s position to anchor their own movements.

Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer

Hell’s Kitchen in New York City was a pretty rough place
Like many areas of the city in the 1950s and 1960s, poverty gave way to hardship which in turn created crime. The New York of that time period would be unimaginable to people only familiar with today’s Disneyland–inspired Times Square. But back then things were tough.
