The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

I finally graduated.

I graduated high school.

I got in line, walked the stage, got my diploma, shook hands and threw my hat up in the air and lost it. But I didn't care. In fact, thank goodness because those are some ugly hats.

I went backstage with all the other grads and the whole time I was trying not to cry. I know something as important as graduation is the perfect time to let yourself cry...

But, I just couldn't let myself.

Melissa Goldman read this fantastic poem in honor of Kamila.

I was hitting a mile stone in my life.

I had realized that I would never see most of these people ever again.

IN MY LIFE.

Even though I was red in the face, I didn't cry. Instead, I walked up to almost everyone I knew, ever shared a class with or simply recognized from crossing paths on more than one occasion.

I even went up to Marck, slightly touching him and told him goodbye as he passed. The words "I love you." nearly slipped out of my mouth but I wouldn't let them. Working up the courage to ask him to sign my yearbook as hard enough. And it's a good thing too because I ended up walking next to him in the crowd looking for my family. And that would have been TEH AWKWARD.

Anyways, congrats to everyone in my class. I'll never forget you guys. And congrats to anybody out there graduating this year. I'm gonna shred ass in the future.

And I'm going to totally dig this new OTP of mine! --> www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjRCUh…

There's something about a yellow skinned psycho stalking a crazy clown girl that equals :heart: to me.

I LOVE you

Though I think you should have let the phrase slip out when you could, since god knows when you may see him again

I didn't cry until 1 AM that evening after I left Project Graduation (a huge party thing) with my boyfriend, and he held me in my bed while I was completely pathetic and bawling. I don't think he really knew what to do because he wasn't saying anything that helped me lol

but I bawled hardcore

raaawr

I love you <3

Where are you going to college?
LordDogma's avatar
Oh, I KNOW. It's would have gone like -

Me: You know, I said "I love you.".

Marck: Uh, yeah.

Me: Soooooooooo, what's your answer?

Marck: You know, I don't really know yo -

Me: Oh come on! Don't be a fag about this! I mean, I just spilled my heart back there and you're going to do me like this!? What a pussy! Be a man!!!

Marck: <8( .... Well... fuck me.

XD

Yeah, not cool.

I'm going to the American Academy of Art! 8D
