I'm applying for college (I wanna study film/directing) and they are asking for work samples. I don't have any real movies, but photos are fine too.
But now that it means something, everything looks like crap to me. So if you have time, I'd really appreciate if you could send me your favorite picture of my gallery?
But idk, gonna ask some friends too, so it's not that important.
I hope everyone is doing well, I'm gonna upload some new pictures now.
At first I set it up in our yard for a few days, but that didn't really get me any results, except my sister dancing in front of it in her pajama.
So then I set it up somewhere deep in the nearby forest, somewhere where I could be sure that no humans would come near it. There are a lot of bomb craters in our forest from WWII, and I found one with lots of mud in it. It was very obvious that the ground around it was dug up by wild boars. So that promised some interesting pictures.
The camera did, in fact, capture wild boars almost every night, always around midnight, and I'm really happy with the results. There's also a deer on there now and then. They all always just show up in the dark, which makes it look kinda scary.
Anyway, enough talk, see for yourself:
I'm really sorry about the lack of updates lately. There's just not really been anything interesting happening lately.
But today I did some adult stuff (oh right, I'm an adult now - it sucks).
First, I signed up for a macro photography workshop. I'm quite excited about it, let's see how that turns out.
ALSO I bought a wildlife camera. It's got infrared and it's motion activated and currently it's set up in our garden. A couple of nights ago I woke up at around 4am and there was some weird screaming sound outside, which were probably martens or something. So maybe I'll see something interesting happening in our garden. Maybe I'll also set it up somewhere deep in the woods nearby, because there are a lot of wild pigs there, as well as deer and maybe foxes.
I set up the camera at 7pm today, and just a few minutes ago, at around 10.30pm, I checked it again because I'm a really curious person but there are no pictures on it yet. I guess there's more happening at around sunrise.
I'll see about it tomorrow I guess. And then you'll know about it in a few weeks, hehe. Or I'll put something in that new status thing that dA has now.
Anyways, I hope you're all doing well! Enjoy the pumpkin season!
PS: I'm also going to Spain in about a week, it's more of a relaxing beach holiday, but nonetheless I'll probably take some pictures and of course upload them here!
The first 10 people's avatar commenting this journal, and the three deviations I like most from their gallery will be put on the list below!
I'm going to London for a couple of days in June/July, together with a friend and we're thinking about what we have to see and do in London.
So if you know anything that we definitely shouldn't miss when going there, pleeeaase tell me!
Have a great week and nice Easter holidays (if you celebrate it)!
Okay...I think I'm making a table of contents for this.

- Lame Excuses
- More Balderdash
- A Discussion on the Word 'Balderdash'
I was super inactive lately and I'm sorry. I hope you all missed me a little.
I literally thought about what to write on my entire way back home and I was like 'wow that's a lot...I should structure it really nicely with a table of contents' and the second I wrote the lines above I forgot all of it. So chances are I forgot something.
So my friend talked me into making an Instagram account. Since it's about posting pictures, I figured maybe someone here would want to follow me. I'll post pictures from my phone, which are nice for Instagram, but not good enough to upload here, so you'll actually find new stuff on there. I'm new to it though, so bear with me. And don't be a creep. Thanks. I also need people to follow, so that'd be another plus for you.
3. 100 Watchers
I realize that it's not much, but I'm really no one to go out and make new contacts. And I'm very grateful for having you all so here's a big thank you-hug!! Stay awesome everybody!
4. Lame Excuses
Here comes the boring part. I have been inactive and will probably continue so too, because of school. There's the lame excuse.
The also lame truth is that I really am inactive because of school. I'm going to finish high school this year in June and the final finals are in April/May. So, everybody wants me to start studying. But I don't even know what to do with my life after school and I just want to be five years old again and not have any problems, so to avoid thinking about all the responsibilities that are being slammed into my face, I'm watching TV. I could obviously distract myself on deviantArt, but watching TV shows (Person of Interest at the moment) is just much more relaxing and an easier way to take my mind of things. But while I'm watching TV I can't be on deviantArt, so that's why I'm so inactive. I should also study for my driver's license test, but I'm not really getting anything done there either. I'm just procrastinating my life away again, so nothing has really changed. Now I'm sad...
5. More Balderdash
I did take pictures these last days and I'll see if I can upload some. Maybe pictures of crocuses or dogs. The weather was great but I didn't take as many pictures as I could/should have, because I'm just lacking any motivation at the moment. Ugh man, I need to get my life figured out I guess.
6. A Discussion on the Word 'Balderdash'
What the fuck kind of word is that?! My translation app thingy said it means something like 'pointless talk'...
Wiktionary says it probably derived from the name of some kind of drink that was beer mixed with wine or something. I guess if you drink beer mixed with wine all you can say is 'balderdash'. Balderdash balderdash balderdash balderdash balderdash balderdash balderdash...Super weird.
Wiktionary also says 'poppycock' is a synonym for it. Really, English language? 'Poppycock'? Are you for real? What even... Never mind, this is just going to end here.
Now, I kinda missed uploading anything Christmas-y, at least anything photography related. That's because I haven't done much these past days. But I got some money for Christmas and I'm probably gonna buy a new lens, so there'll be more uploads again. In the meantime, I hope I can make up for the lack of pictures with some tiger pics. I know, I uploaded so many already, but I can't help going to the zoo because he's just sooo cute! :3 So uhm, for now, there's only one because I'm busy, but more tiger pics are following, I hope you're not getting bored by them.
Okay I was kinda praising my own pictures there, but seriously, they are cute.
I hope I'll upload some today but I'm not very productive at the moment and I've been working on/editing them for the last four days or so but somehow I always end up watching Indiana Jones instead of actually uploading anything.
Ah no, I'm definitely going to upload something because it's Halloween themed. Then maybe tiger pictures. Or raccoons, I dunno. Oh btw, I should probably apologize right now already, because when I'm finally going to upload those tiger pictures, there are going to be quite a lot because I really can't decide on which to upload. I wrote 'upload' way too often...now it's weird.
Okay omg I need to stop writing, no one's gonna read all of this anyway.
- Drinking: fucking caramel flavored caffè latte
Nope, never heard of it.
Eh...I'm gonna go with drinks.
9. Did you answer those questions honestly?
Questions I had to answer:
1. If anything in the world was possible, what would your ambition be?
Oh my god the possibilities...Leaving all the moral things aside, I'd like to be able to travel anywhere in space, really easily, at high speed and without throwing up.
2. What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever done/been caught doing?
Tbh I can't think of anything right now and I don't want to think about it too much because then I will think of something and I will be embarrassed again.
3. What's one of the funniest things/stories from your childhood?
One that comes to my mind is that there was once a circus kind of thing in our town where you could ride on camels and then one day of course it moved on to another town and I asked my mum (we were on a bus and just went past where the circus used to be): "Where are the camels?" and she said "I don't know." But I didn't believe her so I asked the other people on the bus where the hell those freaking camels went (not with that choice of words tho).
4. Would you rather be a duck-billed-platypus for the rest of your life, or be turned into a duck at night? –And why!
Whaaaaat... Okay, platypuses are pretty cool and they seem like they have a chill life, so I'd rather be that for the rest of my life than having to deal with getting my life straight when I turn into a duck every night.
5. Would you rather run into a tree and teleport to the galaxy Andromeda only to skip back through space all in the same day, or would you rather live in the world of Minecraft for the rest of your life??? xD – And of course, why?
I dunno if I got this right but I'm gonna go with the Andromeda galaxy thing (as long as that doesn't kill me) because it's really beautiful and I've wanted to travel through space anyway so that sounds like a neat deal. Also I usually feel dizzy from playing (well rather watching my friend play) Minecraft.
1. If you could meet any member of the Sesamestreet, who would it be?
2. Do you think 30 years from now man will have traveled to Mars?
3. If you could be any animal you like, which would you be?
4. Do you prefer to live in a big city or in the countryside?
5. What is your opinion on the theory that the world is actually a bun that is swimming in a cleaning bucket which is standing on the back of a cleaning lady?
Okay people, I got too tired to think of anyone to tag and rules are made to be broken.
It'd sure be entertaining to read your replies, so if you got nothing to do, maybe just put them in the comments or so.
If I'd tag someone tho, I'd tag and back, and I'd also like to tag Inky tho I know you hate that so I am not really tagging you, and I'd also tag and kind of also , if you didn't get too scared of me after reading all this. And you guys can just choose which questions you want to answer.
And btw, for those who care, I was on vacation last week and I'm going to upload some new pictures soon (I hope).
Actually I wanted to post a survey about Germany, which I could use for my history class, maybe I'm still gonna do that later.
This photography class I talked about earlier (1 1/2 weeks ago) went quite okay. I was expecting waaay too much though. I was gonna tell them stuff about camera settings like aperture and exposure and ISO and all that, but they didn't even know how to turn of the flash so I gave up on that. I told them some things like the two-third-rule and then send them to go take some pictures. Some of the older ones got some quite nice shots already and the others actually really used what I told them about how to make an image more interesting. It was soo exhausting though. And being the little perfectionist I am it didn't turn out the way I had hoped, but my dad told me that when I was younger and using his camera I'd just take pictures of everything as well, and that it takes a lot of time to develop this kind of..eye that let's you know "oh that's a nice motive."

I BOUGHT A NEW CAMERA I AM SO EXCITE
It's the Nikon D3200 with two lenses, 18-55mm and 55-200mm. Gosh that was expensive...I will protect this thing with my life..or so.
Okay, so...it's gonna be here some time next week (OR TOMORROW WHAAAT), I hope it has stopped raining by then.
Which brings us to the next point: There has been A LOT of rain in parts of Germany lately and some streets in my area are flooded. It's hard to get to school sometimes. And at school the roof is leaking...Yeah that's what life is like in Third World Germany. Life is tough for people here, please send help. The telephone cables are underground here and some have gotten wet and some telephones aren't working. So they are trying to fix that, but that means some time these days I might not have any internet connection
Yeah, that's that. Maybe I can go by boat to school soon. That'd be so awesome!!
And well, I don't want to take any new equipment outside as long as it's raining.
And in the nearby forest there's a lot of water as well, of course. My sister and I went to take a look at it (and run through the water) and as we came by the lake we noticed these huge black spots in it...turned out those were all polliwogs.
That's just a tiny anecdote from my life, nothing that would teach you anything. Also it just fitted really nicely into the heading, I thought.
And last weekend I got to use a Canon EOS 50D, which was pretty awesome, I still haven't uploaded all the pictures I took with it, but I'm kind of lazy at the moment, sorry :/ There are also many many more pictures waiting to be submitted, some from the zoo, some that I really like, some flowers, some water drops (and not to forget about the puppy of course). I'll try my best to submit something soon. And I dunno if you're also watching my scraps, but I might be uploading some pictures of the flood or some not so great pics there soon.
I heard they are going to decide about marriage equality in Illinois today? They better make the right decision, I really want to be invited to my uncle's marriage so I can go to Chicago again.
I'M GONNA BE THERE IN EXACTLY ONE MONTH FROM NOW! SOMEONE COME AND ANONYMOUSLY VISIT ME IN CHICAGO
Pshew, what a long journal entry...this is what happens when I'm tired and procrastinating..woops.
- Listening to: OneRepublic
- Watching: PSYCH (you should be watching it too)
- Eating: the remote
- Drinking: no coke at almost midnight that's for sure
This wasn't supposed to happen...There's stuff on here only strangers on the internet may read or see, but no one that knows me personally...Gosh...this is so not good.
Though I think he only went through my gallery (tho there's also some fanart he didn't necessarily have to see..).
Oh and Inkyness, he said: "Who's this...'Inkscape'-or whatever- commenting on all your pictures? Do you know them?" and then I said something like "That's Inkyness, a very nice person from another planet."
So, Dad...I'm not sure if you're gonna read this, apparently you didn't scroll down that far. (That would've been extra weird...with my little Coulson freak-out, probably would've mentioned that). Don't look around. Look away and delete your browser history. I can give you access to all my pictures, just leave and don't come back, I'd appreciate that. Thanks. You're still the most awesomest Dad though. And be glad that I'm just doing this but am neither smoking nor drinking.
NOW SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME POINTS SO I CAN GET A PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP AND CHANGE MY URL AND THEN LEAVE THE COUNTRY AND CHANGE MY WHOLE IDENTITY AS WELL

I apologize for not having replied to anything in a few days, I don't know what I'm doing all day, but time just flies and I don't get to be on deviantArt so very much.
But I'll have some free days this week, so I hope I can get things sorted out by next weekend.
Here's also a slight warning in case you should be allergic to cuteness:
I visited some friends this weekend and they got a 4 months year old Australian Shepherd puppy last week. Of course I took pictures. And this thing is just so precious I won't be able to sort out the 'not so good' pictures (there are none oh my gawwwd, I'll spam you all with little puppy pictuures)... I'll see...maybe I'll keep some in storage for sad rainy days when only puppies and chocolate can make you feel better.
Also, ugh, they live more than 200kms away and the next time I'll see them is probably on New Year's Eve and then it's not a precious little puppy anymore but a fabulous dog lady >__< That's fine too, but, aww, she was just so cuddly C:
Yeah, that's it I guess...for more puppy stories check my descriptions on the puppy pics I'll upload some time soon.
Harhar, almost forgot! I watched Iron Man 3...two times already. I don't regret it, I think I can safely say that it's my favorite IM movie so far. RDJ is brilliant, Sir Ben Kingsley is brilliant, Ty Simpkins is awesome, Shane Black is now added to my never ending list of favorite directors.
- Watching: a documentary about lions living in a swamp
- Eating: Belgian chocolate - yeah
- Drinking: rooibos tea
