I Am Who I Am
Sitting here staring at my laptop I'm trying to think of how to depict myself in words… It's not hard to think of words that describe me, that's a piece of cake.
Funny, creative, introverted, determined, respectful, trustworthy, argumentative…
I can go on and on but that's just a list of words that sort of describe me. But that's not all I am. I'm more than just a couple of words that people can interpret differently.
Take the word funny for example. Someone can assume that I like to make jokes or was the class clown in school. But that's not true, yes I like to make jokes but I'm funny because I don't like seeing others upset. I don't like seeing my friends sad or depressed when I spent years feeling that. So I make sure they don't have to.
My friends will tell you that I'm loyal and trustworthy. I've even been compared to man's best friend. That doesn't bother me either because those that know me well enough know I will always be there when they need it the most.
I laugh wh

A Wish For A Brighter Day
'If escaping was only possible…' thought Shea, stretched out across her bed with arms locked in a death grip around her pillow. She stared out her window, eyes red and puffy with tear tracks streaking her cheeks. The arguing coming from the living room stopped abruptly. She looked to her bedroom door; it was too soon for that, but the slamming of a door and the sound of glass shattering confirmed her fears. One of her parents had left. The door didn't open again. She knew what happened, even if she wouldn't admit it to herself.
Slow, heavy footsteps echoed in the still house; deafening in the silence. With each step her heart broke a little more until they finally stopped outside her door.
"I- I'm so, so sorry…" A pained breath was taken, "I, I didn't know what to do…" A sob escaped Shea.
Gentle arms encircled her and she turned into her father's embrace, sobs coming full force.
A muffled question managed to escape between sobs, "W-wh-why? Why w-would she-", she was unab

Heart Broken
Heart Broken
She sat there, staring. The picture wasn't disappearing; it had to be real then. She responded to his question positively; the little smiley-face in front a fake. She didn't want to hurt him…she could never hurt him.
His image darkened, he'd logged off. She went back to the picture that was still up in her browser. Her vision blurred slightly, she couldn't believe it. He was having a child with another woman. She had believed everything he'd told her, too.
God, she felt like a fool.
She wanted to scream, to cry, to beat the shit out of anything and everything, but what was the point? It wouldn't change anything.
She would still feel empty.
She thought of everything they'd shared together. Of everything they had in common. Of everything that had made them meet in the first place.
She closed her eyes in pain. She couldn't think about him, it hurt too much.
He'd been the only one to ever truly have her heart.
A tear escaped and her body shook in silent sobs. She wouldn't

The trees shook as thunder crashed around her. Nala jumped as lightning flashed in the distance. The damp, marsh-like ground made it easy to trip and fall, making her normally graceful self rather klutzy. She stumbled over some far reaching tree roots, her clothes, black and drenched from the down pour, made movement sluggish.
Her internal compass had never been spot-on, but this was truly ridiculous. She was lost, truly and utterly lost. It wasn’t a matter of finding which way was north, south, east, or west. It didn’t matter that the four directions were so jumbled together Nala was probably walking in circles; not that she would have been able to tell.
Ducking under a branch, Nala tripped. The ground squelched from her impact. She was fine with the soup-like goo she had fallen in, she was quite used to the feeling, however, the thing slithering over her hand was not ok. Nala’s inner girl squealed as she shot to her feet, almost over balancing and landing back in the m

The talent show announcer stepped back on stage as the young dancer exited. “Now this last performance is by a group of four. They are all juniors. Singing the song “Hey Juliet” please welcome LMNT!”
Cheering erupted as the curtains closed. The music started and four voices echoed around the auditorium.

Definition of an Artist
Why have you joined deviantART? For many of us, we can list the reasons why we’re here, and for some, we can barely reel out one. However, the thing that connects us all is art.
As an artist we’ve developed our own styles, used others as inspiration, expressed ourselves in visual or literary form and so much more.
But are we an artist if we travel along the same line, only one journey completed?
"The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination." ~ Don Williams, Jr.
Through my time here, I’ve seen artists lounging languidly in their small zones. These artists are plodding through life and not looking at their journey, but their destination.
There are artists who have developed their style and stuck to it. Some have even gone far enough to only stick to one type of subject matter.
Even worse is the fact that these artists continue to receive praise when the style, the subject matt

So for the coming 2013 con season I plan to attend several different cons in Arizona, Florida, and Maryland (I think...).

Phoenix Comic-con (PCC)- May
Anime Tu-Con- July(?)
Saboten Con- September(?)
Anime-Kaigi- November(?)

MetroCon- July 26th-28th

Otakon- Aug 9th-11th

Most of the Arizona cons have just finished up (Saboten) or haven't even happened yet (Anime-Kaigi) so I don't have specific dates for them yet. PCC is in May I just need to re-check the dates.

So the plan for this year is to attend Metro and Ota, however, plane tickets are hella expensive so I just plan to take a month off of work and fly home and attend the both of them XD but I still have 8ish months left to go before I can put in leave and make it official.

My current costume line up (which is entirely subject to change...) is:
Misty- Pokemon- Gen One
Nausicaa- Nausicaa of the Valley in the Wind
Dani- Danny Phantom
Temari- Naruto Shippuden

Dani is a dual cosplay with Nova who'll be Male!Sam.
Temari is a group cosplay with Nova, Irri, and a friend of Irri's who I think is doing Zabuza and Suigetsu? Not sure...

I feel broke just looking at this list... knowing that I'll be spending crazy amounts of money on weekend passes and merch.... XD

Shoot this arrow▬▬▬► to 10 people you're glad you met. . . If you get 5 back you have a ~ BIG HEART...
squishy-jelly-apple Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist

Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!!

You might send it to your enemies as well!
It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!



Spread the DA love around! (you can copy and paste this message on their userpage!)

1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- You -MUST- hug 6 other people, at least!
3- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their user page!
4- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
5- You should most definitely get started hugging right away

Much thanks for the mutual Watch! I may ask you for advice when it comes to drawing eventually. ^_^
PyxisCetus Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2009
Your welcome! And of course! I don't know how much help I can offer, but I know how to give a good critique when asked for one. ^_^

Well, feel free to check out the ONE drawing I've got up and tell me what you think. I haven't picked up a drawing utensil in almost 10 years before I did that...
