Yeah. Everyone's doing it. I wanna, too.
I'll try to ask for cheap stuff, though. xD
--------
STEP ONE
Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your DA or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.


STEP TWO
Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

----
One: A Deviant Art Subscription. (3 months, 6 months, 12 months, doesn't matter.)
Two: www.drmcninja.com/bookstore.ht…
Three: Gift art. I guess.
Four: A new icon. My current icon bores me.
Five: HAUGZ. (Hugs.)
Six: Possibly a... new Bible?
Seven: A new book. I NEEDZ ONE.
Eight: Something for Courtney, I guess. She's been going through a tough time, and she at least deserves that much, if not more.
-------
If it's anything material, then note me asking for my address. The majority of you should already know, since the majority of my watchers are local.
So. Uh. Yeah, you know how my past journal entries were filled with words of moping and despair? Well, I don't feel like moping an despairing anymore, simply because I don't really have a reason to do so.
But now I don't know how to make a regular journal entry. ;_; But meh, I'll try.

First thing's first. A friend of mine is undergoing... pretty intense psychological treatment. I'm not telling who, but said person frequents Deviant Art quite frequently. I just... want you all to pray for said person. Said person needs all the prayer said person can get, and then some.

Other than that, nothing much has been happening recently. School is the same old, same old, and Chorus is, of course, the worst class for me in terms of socializing with others. Seeing as they only talk about their cell phones, iPods, music, movies, and their boyfriends/girlfriends. All of which I have no interest in talking about.

Anyhow. I'm stealing the prayer list idea from Hannah. Simply because I also think it's a good idea.
-----------
~Prayer List~
-A friend of mine is undergoing intense psychological treatment. Pray that said person will follow through with whatever is going on.
Wow, um... what a week. Or more.

So, uh. How to start...

First of all, I'm grounded. I'm getting bad grades, and my parents decided to take away my computer for the grades I'm getting. So... yeah. I'm also grounded from the internets upstairs in their room. :
But anyway.
I've been feeling worse and worse these past couple of days. Heck, in fact, I'm almost certain that it isn't depression I'm dealing with. Maybe... I dunno. I wrote something in class a couple of days ago that just about sums it up:

-------
Is this our fate? Our destiny?
Is it our destiny to suffer so, just because of our wisdom?
Our wisdom, our knowledge, makes us unique. We are masters of the laws of life. But such wisdom beckons forth suffering.
What I wouldn't give to be a fool, to be oblivious to the laws of life. But once you taste the knowledge, taste the wisdom that is the laws of life, you strive for more.

Yet it hurts.

You become too painfully aware of how corrupt the world is and how ignorant humans are. Mortals are nothing more than incarnations of sin. Incarnations of greed. Incarnations of lust.
Yet such things are simply impossible to defy. Even the wisest of the wise have fallen to greed, to lust, to power... to killing.
Yet the fools think nothing of it. It is their world, their problems. And they think nothing of it. The wise suffer due to their awareness of the laws of life, but the fools are unaware of such things.

To be a fool... would be one of life's greatest treasures.

-------
Basically... I'm too painfully aware of stuff. For example, if I were to get a girlfriend of some kind, I'd eventually have to break up with her. And we'd both be hurt, and it'd lead to unneeded problems. So in my mind, why have any relationship during high school whatsoever when you can just save yourself the trouble?
And another thing. I... *sigh* have some sort of mad crush on someone. I think I do, at least. I'm not saying who, but... *sigh* I dunno. It's not worth it to get together with her, or even try to do so. I mean, what's the point? We'll eventually have to break up sooner or later.

Or maybe it's not a crush at all. Maybe it's just a really good friend... I honestly have no clue. I don't even know the difference between love in an intimate kind of way, and love in a best friend kind of way.
It's pathetic.

...But anyhow. Enough of such things. Over and out.

Anyhow. Recently, I've been... worried about a certain friend. She hasn't been making very wise decisions lately, and... I won't tell who it is, but if the person I'm talking about is reading this, and you know it's you I'm talking about, I... really need to talk to you soon.
  • Playing: Rogue Galaxy
Sometimes I wonder to myself... who am I? I rack my brain for answers, but I can't come up with any.
My emotions... are different than they should. Most people, when in love, should FEEL love. I felt... I don't even KNOW what I felt. It wasn't friendship. It wasn't love. It was an emotion without words.
Caring. It's a basic emotion, yet it takes on so many themes. Love. Worry. Happiness.
Why is it that I feel neither of those three?
I strive to care. Really, I do. But even now... I don't know if that feeling of "caring" is fake... or real. I've lied. Lied to my friends, and to myself, for so many years. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I realized that I should be who I am, instead of creating a "new" me.
But I've been having trouble. I cannot feel the pain, the suffering of others. I try to build my own version of the emotion called "caring", but now... I don't know what that emotion is.
It's an emotion, without a word. And it's replaced the REAL emotion. The real emotion... of caring. It's much like a hybrid of that emotion, yet... incomplete.

I don't know what to do.


...I've been feeling like this for a long time. I don't even know WHO I am. I lack ordinary emotions, and in its place, I have emotions that lack a word. Emotions that no one else understands.

And it hurts.
------
EDIT: You know what? I feel... better. Better than I have in months. I now know what to do. Instead of moping around, complaining about how sucky everything is... what's the point? I need to get some help. If my parents won't pay attention to my depression, maybe I need to try a different approach. And I know what that approach is.
I'm... gonna go talk to a guidance person about everything. Hannah's mom... pretty much helped in every way possible, but it's up to me to take her advice.
Hannah, if you're reading this... thanks. And tell your mom I said thanks. I don't know how to explain it, but... talking it out with you, Danny, and your mom and stuff helped me sort everything out. It's... a lot more effective than just typing everything down on a computer.
Also, Danny... I need to talk to you sometime about something. So, uh... next time we're both online, I guess I'll take that time.
  • Playing: Rogue Galaxy
Okay, um... this is going to sound severe. But here it goes.

I give up. I truly don't see a single opportunity to see Hannah and Danny ever again. What's worse is that they've moved on, yet I haven't yet. They can go on without me. Honestly, I miss them... severely. More than that, really. It feels like a big ol' chunk of me has been ripped out of me. It's pathetic, really, relying on my friends THAT much...

But you know what? I can live on, even without a chunk of me.
I mean, seriously. Don't take this the wrong way, but how can we be best friends when we can't even SEE each other, let alone TALK to each other? I have no form of communication with them, and I just recently got grounded again. And this time, I truly see no loophole or anything of the sort that will let me be able to use the computer again.

Hannah, Danny... I love you. More than I love myself. But if my parents won't even ALLOW me to talk to you guys, even after reading my letter I wrote to them (Hannah, feel free to talk to Danny about it), I honestly see no hope. Don't take this the wrong way... Hannah, Danny, I'm not angry at you. I'm angry at myself. I'm angry at myself for making the stupid decisions that I made that led up to this.

I'm sorry.

And mom, dad... I'll just flat-out say it: I don't give a rats ass if you're reading this. You'll end up disregarding it and say that it was my fault that I got into this mess. Of course, it is, but you'll just rub that fact into my face.
I hate you, mom and dad. You truly don't understand what you're doing to me, and I don't think you ever WILL understand what you're doing to me.

I tag... no one in particular.
  • Watching: Death Note.
Well. What a week.
A couple of days ago, I went to homecoming. First of all... I didn't like it much. I'll list the reasons right now:

1- When you walk into the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd, good luck getting out.
2- I absolutely kid you not, over half the music was nothing but rap. The crap kind. (Oh, wait. All rap's crap.)
3- WAY too much "bumping and grinding".
4- I was feeling depressed before homecoming anyhow, and it followed me TO the dance itself.
5- No air conditioning and/or air circulation. At all.
6- Er... gonna sound awkward, but during the slow dance songs, I didn't have the courage to ask anyone if they'd want to dance.
-------
And on a completely unrelated note, I see no hope for mankind within the next 10 to 20 years.
Good day to you all.
  • Watching: Death Note.

------------
I'll do the tagging part later on.
Life as I know it still sucks! :D

Anyhow, I'm not going to homecoming. I... er, I got in a fight with my parents. They got all mad, I accidentally let my tongue slip and cussed at one of them, so I'm not going. : Oh well. Should have been expected.
Anyhow, even though the way this journal entry is typed out may say otherwise, I'm in an extremely pissed off mood and honestly see no point in life, not just because of the whole homecoming thing, but because... of other things.
Anyhow. Next time I get some adequate time in the computer, I'll update this journal entry to make it say more or something.

Er... so. I pretty much had a horribly life-shattering couple of days. What about you guys?

Anyhow... honestly, I don't want to go into any detail. Let's just say I hurt someone without even realizing, and I didn't even realize I did so until it was already too late to reverse everything. And honestly, I'll probably never forgive myself for it, despite Hannah's protests. If I forgive myself, I'll eventually forget about it and have the entire situation off of my mind completely. And if I do that... history will repeat itself. And besides, you guys don't understand. I've never, in my life, been so angry at myself as I am now. I'm slowly getting better, but... I don't know. I'm the only one who can fully understand it all, since I'm the one who made the wrong.
Well. Enough talk of such things. I don't think I'm leaving DA after all, anyhow, just to make you guys happy. And if I did, I'd have nothing to do.

Over and out.

I'll fill this out when I have time. I want it to impact everyone in such a way as to know how I'm feeling about myself at this point in time.
Other than that, this is going to be my last DA journal entry. Hannah, Danny, look for notes by me in the near future if you have the chance. I have to tell you guys something about everything.

Eh. Honestly, I don't really care if she's reading this right now or not. I'm not mad at her when I say what I'm gonna say later on, but... eh.

Got an email from Courtney saying she just wants to be friends with me. Eh, oh well. Not angry, mind me, but just wanted to tell.
Also, I'm just gonna forget about the whole girlfriend thing. Too confusing/stressful/whatever. For homecoming, I'll probably just go without a date, but with a group of friends or something.

Anyhow.

High school sucks. Worst experience of my life. I've given it a try, but NOTHING cool has happened. I've made VERY little friends, and the majority of kids in my classes are either the preppy girls who talk as if they're asking questions all the time, a bunch of (pardon my english) sluts and bitches, "gangsta's", and the like. Overall, my high school experience sucks big time, and I want no more of it.
Over-and-out.

So, uh. You remember the person I was talking about before in my last journal entry? Well, er... I forgot she lurks on DA every once in a while. So she read my earlier journal entry, told me that she did, and I went into an "Oh crap panic" mode. Dunno if I should be happy about the turn of events, or if I should go into panic mode again. Haven't decided yet. So here I am now, trying to decide whether I should avoid her like the black plague because she knows I like her and she might not in that same sense, or if I should just talk to her like normal.
Oh, and in case she's reading this... hi. And stuff.

Anyhow, second official week of high school. I THINK I've made new friends, but I'm not sure. My first class, Computer Graphics and Design, is kick-butt awesome, and I hope to learn more than Hannah knows. So I can mock her for her unintelligence in the field of Photoshop. (Lawl, sarcasm.) Intro to Acting is... so-so. Kinda boring, but I'm in charge of the music in a radio play. 8B Next, is Spanish. The teacher is cool, reminds me of Mrs. Mester, but the class is boring. Next, Investigative Biology. VERY boring.
And I recently got Metal Gear Solid 3. So anyone here who goes to central... you may see me doing stupid stuff, like sneaking around and hiding behind stuff. I've already hid from my grandparents in a cardboard box for the heck of it, and it was a success.
Also... PLEASE write. I'm getting bored, really fast.
Over-and-out.

Quite a weird journal entry, but whatever.

Well... I've been feeling depressed lately. I've been seeing less and less of my friends due to high school, and quite frankly, they're the only ones keeping me sane. I can't get online, so communicating with Danny and Hannah is out of the question. I rarely ever see my other friends at high school, since the only person I have class with is Philip, and that's only for 2 classes. I very rarely see my other friends in the hallway, and for lunch the only people who have B lunch is me, Darin (Yuck), and Philip.
And... I've been lagging on my homework. I also think I found out why I don't do my homework usually:
Whenever I write, I get impatient and just quit. But if I type... it's a different story. My hand doesn't get tired by typing, but gets tired by writing only a single sentence. And it takes a heckuvalot longer to do so. And because of all of that, I've been somewhat failing.

On a side note, I'm gonna break up with Angie. Dunno when, but it's gonna be sometime this upcoming week. I... don't really have any feelings for her anymore. I was a fool back then. I merely got together with her just so that i could say I have a girlfriend. Besides that, she doesn't deserve someone such as I. I'm too shy, and I'm gonna have to fix that before I get together with someone else.
And frankly, I've kinda gained feelings towards... er, First name starts with a C, last name starts with an S. I honestly don't know why, but... I don't know if it's just me constantly wanting to make sure she's alright, just wanting to talk to her more, or what.  Honestly, I'm confused as to who I like, and... I dunno. I think I'll just live as a hermit the rest of my life.

What makes a human... a human?

Who am I? One could assume I am just like any other individual. One could also assume I am a good friend. But then, one could ALSO assume I'm the devil himself.
So, who am I?
The simple answer is: nobody. I am what you make me to be, and that's been the law of mortality since the very beginning. Though I may be nice and kind at heart, I may be completely the opposite. Or say on the outside, I'm cruel and hateful. If that were the case, I could be slowly dying on the inside, desperately wanting to reach out for someone's hand... but not have the courage to do so.
Humans try to put in to words what they are. They may say they're kind, caring, protective... yet some parts of them may also be cruel, spiteful, and devious. You see, words cannot fully express who one is. It's the law of nature.
But... but does that mean life has no meaning? If what you say is not the entire truth of what you mean, then what's the meaning of speech? And, if there is no meaning in speech... what of life? Would that be meaningless, too?


...Ugh. 'Tis what happens when I think philosophical. It hurts my brain at times, but it's actually quite fun to think of such things.

Anyhow. School starts on Thursday. Go me. I just hope I'm ready. :

And on a completely random note, I seriously think I'm high from lack of sleep. I'm gonna hit the hay soon. So if what I said earlier doesn't make much sense, try reading it when you're extremely tired. It may make sense then.

What makes a human a human? One may assume it is all right to kill off what is not like us, say, like, an ant, but... if you truly think about it, what does that single ant who's life had ended by your hands have that you don't? If you really think of it, an ant could also be considered human...

What? Austin has a new journal entry THIS fast? Yes. Now listen up.


I... kinda just now realized (Actually, a couple of days ago, but whatever) that... I may never see Hannah and Danny again, besides at RP get-togethers. They're going to a completely different school than I am, and... I dunno. You two are quite honestly pretty much my best friends, and... it's gonna suck going to different schools. It won't be the same, like when we went to Trinity.
Also. Even though kinda everyone else in my class cares for Courtney, I kinda might be the only one able to watch over her. Rachel isn't really her friend any more (Which I think is a foolish choice, but that argument is for another day, and it's also just an opinion), and even though the others going to Central care for her, they don't care the same way me, Hannah and Danny do. So, frankly... I'm gonna kinda be the only one watching her back. Kinda scary, really.
Well. I've seen 2 whole seasons of Bleach in 5 days. Quite an accomplishment, if I say so myself. Next stop, third season.
Well... on to whatever the hell I can do next to kill off time.

Since everyone else is doing the whole add-on-at-end-of-journal-thing, I'll do it too.

Anyhow. These past few days have been quite boring. Really boring. Seeing as how pretty much every freakin' friend of mine is never online because they're all at school. Other than watching pirated episodes of Bleach, nothing has been happening.
Anyhow. 'Nuff said.
