Journal Entry: Sat Jul 14, 2018, 6:42 AM


This might be a thing that's over in a few days in which case, nevermind this journal, but I haven't been doing as well lately in the past... while, there's some things I've had trouble starting and while I'm sorting that out I might be absent for a while, I don't know. I'll see, but if I'm not responsive that's why! Hope you've all been well!

If you're someone I know you can add me on Discord, I might not reply a lot there but sometimes I talk

Please beware that I probably won't add you if I don't recognize you at all, though!

[ALL GONE] I have 89 unused Toyou.se codes

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 20, 2018, 1:22 AM


EDIT: all of them are gone, thank you guys! If there's leftovers in a month or so I'll distribute them so other people can have a chance.
Does anyone want a code...
Beware that if you don't use it after a few weeks I may end up forgetting it already belongs to someone and give it to someone else ffFFF so try to make sure you actually redeem the invite code if you want an account!
All I ask is that you don't resell the codes for art/money/points or some other kind of thing because that's kind of a dick move in my opinion when you got the code for free. Please just use them for yourself or to give to friends for free :>
Also please just comment if you want one, because usually I get people commenting with "hmm I don't know if I want this" and like, I don't know what to do with that, my guy, take it or leave it, it's all up to you, you decide

Also every time I make these journals people ask me what Toyhou.se is and it gets tiring to explain to every comment, so. It's a character storage site. You can make character profiles, add images, information, literature, custom coding, subfolders and all that jazz. It's good for storing character art and organizing your characters. The site's been getting updates lately and in my opinion it's pretty good, but  mean it's a free code and I havea bunch of them to spare so you can honestly just try it out yourself!

Hi. I have returned
Canada was great, I really loved the country but I love my friends eVEN MORE and I can't believe I was able to go across an entire ocean to spend two weeks with them. We ended up seeing Toronto, going to the aquarium, seeing Niagara Falls, walking around, hanging out, spending so much time together. The goodbye was so sad, especially because the planes changed and us Europeans had to take different planes home instead of travel together for part of the journey and that early goodbye was all the more painful oof suddenly both people at once were gone. Feelsbadman. Also flying was not as bad as I expected? Long travel times aside, the flights themselves were enjoyable. Flying across timezones definitely messes me up though, it feels like entering another reality.
Anyway, I'd love to go back (and I will, when I can, for sure). I can't believe we finally did this after years, it feels unreal but it happened! If you read this Kyo/Jayden I Love You thank you for making this happen.
I will work on commissions shortly, I have some papers to take care of but I'll begin drawing again starting tomorrow! As you could tell, I sort of took a break from that in Canada, I worked on papers for a bit but for the most part I just spent time with the people I love and enjoyed myself. Apologies for the delays on art! I promise I will do my best to make it worth the wait. Also I have 1,500+ inbox things so if I haven't commented on your art in a while: I love you and I am deeply sorry you're doing great and I support you

Pride meme

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 4, 2018, 3:25 AM


I stole this from So Many people in my inbox holy shit
It's 5:54 as I start this and Jayden and Kyo are sound asleep so until they wake up or I fall back asleep I'm going to occupy myself with this
I Can't Believe I'm in Canada, absolutely wild. Good

1. what’s your gender? 
- Agender

2. what are your pronouns?
- They/them

3. is your family accepting?
- They're very accepting of homosexuality and the like. They don't always understand trans things but they try their best and learn.

4. what do you wish you could tell your past self?
- That it's okay to identify as something else ffff and that the "everyone else is valid but me" mindset is really unfair and unnecessary.

5. what is your sexuality?
- Homosexual. At least that's the best way I can describe it. Girls and NB folk. Actually I mean homoromantic because I don't have a single clue about ace stuff anymore but because I'm not sure on that I'm leaving it out.

6. favorite color?
- Blue!

7. sun gay or moon gay?
- Sun, I guess?

8. when did you find out your sexuality?
-  I was 10 and at summer camp and I felt really weird and protective about this girl, and afterwards it killed me that we weren't in the same group for the next year. It took young me six months or so to figure out that was a crush fff I thought I might be bi at first but I kept liking only girls after that. And I mean, before that first crush, the thought of a relationship with a guy always seemed meh and awkward and I hated romance movies but like... I was also 9 so it didn't exactly click just yet :XD:

9. how was your day?
- I only just woke up but it's been alright! Yesterday we just stayed home really, rested and cleaned up. Today we might go do a thing or two.

10. do you have any gay friends?
- Do I have any straight friends. Most of them are some kind of gay/bi/pan/ace/etc.

11. what’s your favorite hobby?
- Drawing, riding my bike, taking walks! Just chillin

12. who’s the best gay icon in your opinion?
- Big shrug I know nothing about that,

13. which pride flags do you like the most design/color wise?
- I really like the trans flag colours? Agender has a pretty dope flag too.

14. are you openly out?
- Pretty much, yea. Everyone in my circle knows about my sexuality. Gender is a different story, I don't talk about that in person.

15. are you comfortable with yourself?
- Yea! I mean I get real uncomfortable with my body sometimes but I'm fine with my identity really. The things I identify as are all things that feel right to me.

16. bottom or top?
- Uhh I'm not sure

17. femme or butch?
- Is this like what I am most like or what I like most. Because in the first case, butch, in the second, bOTH

18. do you bind?
- Yes, but not often. It took a while for me to be able to wear a binder without getting dizzy, so I'm careful with it and I tend to save it for when I feel really bad because it makes me feel better.

19. do you shave?
- Not usually because I don't really have places to go where it would be visible to anyone pff but sometimes. Usually armpits

20. if you could date anyone you wanted, who would it be?
- This.. one person

21. do you have a partner (s)?
- Yeee.

22. describe your partner (s)?
- The Best. I'm really bad at these questions I'm sorry

23. have you ever dated anyone of the same sex?
- Yea! All my relationships so far hhh

24. anyone of another sex?
-  Nope.

25. pastel gay or goth gay?
- Pastel I suppose.

26. favorite dad in dream daddies?
- Haven't played!

27. tell me a random fact about yourself?
- I have this one scarred toenail that I thought would grow back whole but it's been years so I think it's safe to say that's fairly permanent at this point.

28. do you own any pride flags/merch?
- No... But I want

29. have you ever been to a pride parade?
- No... But I want AND I KEEP MISSING THE BRUSSELS ONE

30. any advice to someone who isn’t out or who is exploring themselves?
- Take your time! It's possible to have things change at a later age, and don't stubbornly hold onto what you think you should be. Be open to possibilities, but don't rush to conclusions. You'll figure it out sometime!

Canada (upcoming hiatus)

So those who read my journals may remember that I said something about visiting Canada in July. Well... Long story sort, something went wrong with the tickets, and they were issued for June instead. It was our own mistake, but no one caught on until it was too late, and since they didn't allow refunds and changing the tickets would turn out much more expensive than what was already paid... after weighing our options we're just rolling with it OTL It's far from ideal, since June is my exam month, and it will mean I have two extra exams to do in August (plus work on papers in Canada as well), but I just didn't want to miss out on this opportunity because we didn't know when we would be able to do this next and we were finally so close to being there.
So. I'm leaving this Saturday, flying over to Canada with Yialo to meet draqiin and stay at his house for two weeks. And by that I mean "this is the plan" because with all that has gone wrong so far, I'm very paranoid and I still feel like something will get in the way last minute. But hopefully not. I've only flown once before and that was when I was a child, and I've never actually been outside of Europe yet, so it's going to be an adventure! I'm also rEALLY excited to see my best friends and hang out with the two of them together. We have wanted this for about three years, it feels so unreal that it's finally actually happening for real. So I'm praying the part where everything goes wrong is already over pLEASE

Anyway, I don't know if and how much I will draw in that time, because I never seem to draw much when I'm elsewhere, but I might get a few things done. I'll probably still look on here, but I might not be very active if at all, and if I get new commissions they're probably going to have to wait until after I return because I might not take my own laptop along in the first place. When I come back there will be some paper deadlines and one remaining exam, so June is going to be busy. This was nOT the way I intended things to go but we're just going to roll with it and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited as well. To those of you who are on summer break, I hope you enjoy it! And to those who still have exams, hang in there, sending you good luck! To those of you who have neither, I hope you're having an enjoyable time regardless.

TL;DR probably low activity through June, might be slow to respond, will be unable to work on commissions during the first half of June and will still be busy during the second half.

Hey hey
I've been doodling in MS Paint and wanted to see if there was interest in doodles like these for commissions?
They're sort of bust/halfbody-ish and can be in colours of your choice, you can give me a palette of 3-4 colours to work with or just leave it up to me. The background can be single colour, gradient, pattern or a simple scribbled background. They will be done within a couple days of ordering, at latest.
Sail away with me by SpitfiresOnIceWell, you still make sense to me by SpitfiresOnIce
It'd be €8/880:points: for a single character and €10/1100:points: for two characters!

1. Reita-Kei PAID
2. feathers418 PAID
3. lamelamb PAID

Extra slots because I'm WEAK
4. wolfie1998 PAID
5. Griwi PAID
6. IceeTeaa PAID

I'm going to open three slots for now and see where that goes. If you're interested in buying other types of art from me, my regular commissions are also open!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 21, 2018, 4:26 AM


Hey hey hey
Guess who has airplane tickets to see their best friends in July,,,, I'm going to Canada for two weeks to be with Tiny Gang and I'm excited. First time flying alone. I've only been in an airplane once as a child, so, this should be an experience! I'll probably be anxious about it a lot, so prepare yourselves.
Also sunkissin tagged me so I'm just going to, answer her questions but not make new ones or tags because I don't want to,

1) What was your childhood obsession?
Pokémon and animals. I obsessively read books about animals and it was practically all I talked about. Pokémon was usually all I thought about at any given moment. At some point I became a horse person after going to a horse camp. Those were my main obsessions at the time.
2) Which upcoming film are you most looking forward to?
Love, Simon isn't out in Europe yet. I probably won't be able to see it in the cinema, but... still looking forward to seeing it.
3) Who's/what's your favourite YouTuber(s)/YouTube series?
Jacksfilms, but I haven't been keeping up with anything on YouTube as of late, so I haven't watched him in a while.
4) If you could make a film about any of your characters, which one would it be?
None of them have developed stories that I like enough so I'd just be embarassed about any of them hHTCVHYGT
5) What's your idea of a perfect burger?
Has Good Bread. And is not too dry overall. Tomato is good. Leaf
6) Which way is toilet paper supposed to face, inwards or outwards?
Follow your dreams... I hang it inward facing but. Eh
7) What's your favourite subject to research?
Honestly, probably still animal stuff. I love reading about such things. Psychology is interesting, too.
8) What was the best show on TV when you were a child?
Pokémon, but I was a fan of Hamtaro too. And anything on Ketnet fffff
9) What's your favourite animal to see at the zoo?
I like the equines usually, and a few others, like the Rhim gazelle, otters, wallabies. Turtles/tortoises too.
10) Ultimate comfort film, show and/or game?
Film... Don't have any. Show is How I Met Your Mother and Brooklyn 99. Game is Animal Crossing and Life is Strange (that is, the chill parts of the game that aren't heartbreaking).
11) What's the weirdest thing you've learned recently?
I feel like I did learn something weird recently, but I can't think of it?
12) How do you tame a horse in Minecraft?
I don't play Minecraft... I have no idea... carefully, I imagine

WhooOOOO journal memes

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 28, 2018, 3:24 AM


I stole this from Irwin and Cricket. Nice

1. I've come to realize that my hair:
Will probably never be dyed because apparently that's just, not a thing I want. Also it's hard to get it to look messy in a good way, which is sad

2. I've come to realize that when I talk:
I zone out a lot, lose my train of thought, and don't get to express myself properly a lot of the time. Talking is really hard but I still want to try.

3. I've come to realize that I don't want:
Uncertainty about anything and everything anymore. You can't predict everything in life, but you have to have certain elements in your life that are stable.

4. I've come to realize that all I really need:
Is my close family, friends and my partners. It's cliche but it's become more and more clear

5. I've come to realize that I've lost:
The ability to really believe in some things and be open. I'm way more sceptical than I used to, I don't disclose things as easily as I used to. I think in some ways, it's a good thing, but in others, it's a bit sad.

6. I've come to realize that I hate it when:
I know very well what the right thing to do for myself is, and I still do the opposite because it just feels better. I know very well and yet

7. I've come to realize that if I'm drunk:
I will probably surprise a lot of people because who would've expected that

8. I've come to realize that money:
Is really useful when you're trying to start your own life or advance in life in any way.

9. I've come to realize that when I get old:
I will be someplace I absolutely cannot imagine myself being right now. I have no idea what the future will be like whatsoever.

10. I've come to realize that I'll always be:
Gay and irresponsible

11. I've come to realize that I have a crush on:
Someone who has enough to deal with as is and doesn't need my nonsense on top of that, probably

12. I've come to realize that the last time I smiled was:
Today? But I don't know why exactly

13. I've come to realize that my cell phone:
Is sort of important given it's the main way I have to communicate with the people that give me emotional support.

14. I've come to realize that when I wake up in the morning:
I tend to fall asleep again and mess around on my phone. I often just look at messages I have, then proceed to not respond and just sleep another hour or two.

15. I've come to realize that before I go to sleep at night I:
Say goodnight to my partners and sometimes other people. It's become a ritual to say goodnight to everyone, it's kind of nice.

16. I've come to realize that right now I am thinking about:
How I need to make better life decisions and be a better person for people, in different ways. I want to be a positive influence but I don't know if I am, maybe.

17. I've come to realize that my life:
Is rather mundane on one hand and confuses me on the other. But we'll see where it goes.

18. I've come to realize that my favorite drink is:
Tea. Particularly Twinings English Breakfast. I drink it almost every day now, it just feels right.

19. I've come to realize that today I will have:
Spaghetti. I'm actually not sure of that, but I really hope I will you know

20. I've come to realize that tonight I will:
Talk to my people and watch some Netflix/Rabb.it, maybe have a call? Spending time with people either way.

21. I've come to realize that tomorrow I will:
Go to class, and I don't want to, I really just want to sleep and draw.

22. I've come to realize that I really want to:
Figure out my feelings and either have drastic things happen or get over myself. I just want something to change, whether it's one way or another you know

23. I've come to realize that the person who is most likely to repost this is:
Probably someone who watches me. Hi person reposting this meme, how are you

24. I've come to realize relationships are:
So Incredibly Difficult and hard work. Maybe it's easy with some people, I don't know, it's never come naturally for me, but I still want to try

25. I've come to realize that love:
Can mean like, so many things. But regardless, love is good.

26. I've come to realize my best guy friend:
shrug emoji because genders, idk,

27. I've come to realize my best girl friend:
also shrug emoji because genders,

28. I've come to realize food is:
Something I really look forward to but that I need to spend less money on

29: I've come to realize that this summer:
Is either going to be me working all the time and not going to feel like summer at all OR me going on an adventure I will never forget, we'll see what happens

30. I've come to realize heartbreak:
Is sometimes necessary but if it happens too often you should probably protect yourself better and evaluate what you're doing

31. I've come to realize that the person I like:
Is a good person who I want to keep around regardless of what happens

32. I've come to realize that my brother:
Is good but living with him again is sometimes frustrating and can get on my nerves

33. I've come to realize that crying:
Is something I find really hard to do? Like, often, these days I want to, but I can't. I don't remember when I last cried, often I just sit around feeling bad with no way to get it out of my system.

34. I've come to realize that death:
Scares me.

35. I've come to realize that if I'm sick:
I'm usually not sick enough to stay home from work or uni, so it's the worthless kind of sick.

36. I've come to realize when I'm bored:
I tend to not do anything I could do to solve that (be productive, read a new book, watch a new series, play a new game) and just go do something I've already done many times.

37. After answering every question I realize that:
A lot of these are, in fact, recent realizations. Huh

It's still a while until it's midnight in my timezone, but might as well submit this early!
HERE I AM Once more with a journal that is way too long, but it's a tradition. So, basically, I'll be looking at my old resolutions and making new ones, as well as write down stuff that happened. Also if you're mentioned, I gave a few shoutouts to people below (2017 in life), so that's why :thumbsup: It's just that part, so no need to read the entire journal!


2017's resolutions

In 2017, I would like to:
- Give all of my OC's at least one new piece of art. Can be drawn by someone else, but it would be even better if I could draw all of them in 2017! Yea, no, I did not do that. I actually got insanely busy with owed art this year, but I tried, ffff. Sort of
- Redesign my characters with outdated designs and work their personalities out more. I redesigned one or so? sORRY
- Make gifts for active commenters. Comments have been decreasing compared to other years, and I would love to reward those that still put their effort into saying something about my work. Sweats nervously, I completely forgot I made this resolution
- Revise commission prices and TOS, and work more professionally. That I did do!
- Comment more on other people's art myself. I currently comment a lot, but I would like to give longer, more in depth comments. I have aso decreased on this, and my comments are not as long. It's been an insanely busy year.
- Try to build up more friendships and maintain the current ones that are worth keeping. Yeee! I got better at friend stuff in 2017 and met some new people. Nice!
- Earn money towards meeting Tiny Gang and plan out the meeting as much as possible, whether we meet in 2017 or not. PROGRESS, I did meet Kyo and earned some money towards the Canada trip. We couldn't do it this yea, but we will get there sooner or later.
- Not make any resolutions about love for once. If it happens, it happens, but if not, take a break from it. Most of the year was recovery with a little heckery but, yea
- Well, I always talk about doing better at school and it never happens, so just. Try to make it, even if my motivation is at an all time low XD I'm tRYING PAST BIENIE
- Stay alive! Finger guns

I did not do great on those, wow. Whoops :XD: No excuses, it's my mistake.


2017 in life

The main things that happened this year were

- Gained three queerplatonic partners whom I love

- A lot of experimenting
- Thinner lines, playing around with shading
- Still not satisfied with backgrounds but I do try
- Traditional art! Rediscovered that was an option
- Vague attempts at humans but I really need to get better at drawing them still
- Sometimes pixels


2018's resolutions

In 2018, I would like to:
- Sleep a bit more again. Blease
- I don't know what to do with university, but just, try to somehow progress in it
- Keep my friends and qpps around, and hopefully meet some of them in person
- Heartbreak always happens regardless, but some heart-healing experiences would be nice to have
- Maybe exercise?
- Hopefully get a job again sometime
- Stay alive
Can you tell my expectations are at an all time low, I just don't have a lot of energy at the moment but it will be better ffff

Things to look forward to in 2018:
- The Farewell bonus episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm
- Bienie turns 7 in late January (I wrote this in my journal last year. I was a fool and got the number wrong)
- Meeting Dog in February
- Have a small moment of peace and quiet after my exams and thesis presentation, maybe, unless we get something new right after
- Birthday although I don't like the sound of turning 23
- Inktober 2018?
- Having been a deviant for 9 years
- Christmas and New Year's Eve



I AM SUddenly really tired so I'll leave it at that,
Basically, 2017 was wild and hard, but probably also good, and I'm glad about many things that happened. I'll leave it at that!
Thank you so much to everyone who was there for me this year, who talked to me this year, who was around for me this year. Special thanks to the lovely people who even drew me stuff this year. I appreciate it a ton!
I hope you all have the best 2018 possible!

A tag a day keeps the,, something,, away

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 28, 2017, 11:28 PM


I don't think it helps for doctors but someone else might be genuinely spooked by journal tags

Anyway, I got tagged by Down-Flower and I won't make any new questions or anything, but I figured, what's the harm in answering them, might as well!

  1. How did you come up with your username?
    I was 14 and didn't know how English worked and I wanted an ice and fire related username. i thought a spitfire was a flame of some sorts? Whoops
  2. What is a piece of art you are least proud of and why? No cheating with super old art.
    Least proud? Okay, let's see. I guess this  Incoming Rain by SpitfiresOnIce but also it was drawn really quickly so Eh
  3. How has your art style evolved as you have matured?
    I mean, I went from  Spitfire on ice by SpitfiresOnIce to  An even cooler kid by SpitfiresOnIce in like 6 years, so... More defined, from round baby shapes to sharper lines, better shading? Still need to work on those expressions, though. I feel like the characters I draw generally look older now.
  4. When and how did you discover your passion for art?
    I just always doodled as a kid and never stopped. I got into drawing seriously because of friends joining art sites, though.
  5. Do you have a fursona? What is it?
    Absolutely! It's This Loser  Bienie Reference Sheet 8 by SpitfiresOnIce I would eat all of my arms for them
  6. What is your preferred tool for making your craft?
    DeviantArt muro for the sketch, lines and flatcolouring, Paint Tool SAI for most other things. Sometimes I shade in Muro too, but exporting layers takes effort, so eh. Traditionally, I love fineliners.
  7. How do you get over artist's block?
    Either rest and do something else or power through it and struggle until it works. Sometimes I need a break, but sometimes I really just need to suffer for a few days until I get my shit together. It depends, but I honestly don't feel like I really experience artist block all that much? I get unable to draw sometimes, but I feel like that's more of an energy issue.
  8. What is your favorite video game or video game series?
    Life is Strange hokds my heart and proceeds to rip it into tiny pieces. Thank you. Also I love Pokémon and Animal Crossing.
  9. Any songs in your head right now?
    I just heard Happy Together by The Turtles on the radio, so that!
  10. Can you imagine a world without music?
    I mean, it's not great, but
  11. Are you musically inclined in anyway? (constantly singing to yourself counts)
    Nah man, I listen to music and draw to music and that's it.
  12. What is your favorite color? And don't say red, yellow, green. I want words like scarlet, ripened banana, and chartreuse.
    Do I look like I'm that sophisticated. Uuuuuhhhh man, I have no idea what colour that would be, just a collection of various shades of blue honestly.

Yea! Most of them are on my shelves/in a basket, then there's my Leafeon and Zigzagoon who are on my bed.

Selling characters (Bepotelkh, Orehunters)

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 3, 2017, 6:12 AM
:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce
Hobbyist Digital Artist






Comment Skin


Hey!
Nowadays I have less time to use my personal characters, and I am trying to save money for a few things (travel, mainly). So I figured it might be a good idea to try and sell a few. All of these are money only, they have prices but you can offer another price and I might accept. The price listed is more of a buyout price. I'm willing to take the equivalent in points (going by the $1=100:points: rate, please wait for me to set up a widget so I can convert the points).

Also, once bought, you can change their names etc. I don't mind what you do with them afterwards so no need to ask me! I will transfer them to your Toyhou.se if you have one, if you don't but you want one I can give you a code.

1. Freydís SOLD to PricklePaws
:iconbepotelkh: Bepotelkh

Toyhou.se - Masterlist entry -  Herboreal's Adoptable TOS [Updated]
I still really love her design, but I have barely gotten to draw her and I don't get to participate in species activities much. I think it'd be best to let go.
I got her as a paid custom, I would like to get $25 for her (or best offer). Money only.
SOLD


:iconorehunters: Orehunters
I have a few of them left, and I don't think I'll draw them anymore. All of them come with a decent amount of art. 

2. Dalurinn

Toyhou.se - Masterlist entry
$15 or (best offer)

3. Tinde ON HOLD for Reita-Kei

Toyhou.se - Masterlist entry
$15 (or best offer)



You can look at my other characters too if you really want to, chances are just low I'll part with most of them. But again, you can give it a shot.
toyhou.se/SpitfiresOnIce/chara…
I'm really only looking for money (or points to convert to money) though ^^;

It's a meme, Mario

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 18, 2017, 3:20 AM


I haven't done a journal meme in ages lET'S GO reveal personal information for no reason at all

1: Could you go the rest of your life without smoking a cigarette?
Absolutely, in fact I hope I will :XD:

2: Are you single/taken/heartbroken/confused?
I'm single but not heartbroken so this is very good.

3: What if I told you that you were pretty?
I mean who are you, and have you actually seen me before. That's kind of important to know :XD:

4: Ever been told “it’s not you, it’s me”?
YEA and at times it felt kind of eeeeehhhhhhh

5: Are you interested in anyone right now?
Hmmm, maybe. I'm still figuring it out but potentially

6: What are you looking forward to in the next week?
Sleep... and hopefully figuring some things out to acquire some peace of mind.

7: Do you want to be single?
I mean, I am. It's fine, but we'll see what life throws at me! Maybe it's just meant to be that way right now.

8: Did you go out or stay in last night?
It was a Friday night spent at home playing the new Pokémon game and talking to my friends, a perfect way to spend your Friday evenings.

9: How late did you stay up last night?
I went to bed right before 1 AM.

10: Can you recall the last time you realized you liked someone a lot?
Yes, it was a wild time but it's nice to feel that warm about someone. Heartbreak potential aside, I kind of like it.

11: Last three things you had to drink?
Tea, water and I think cola or something, probably.

12: Have you pretended to like someone?
I think I may have? But my feelings are confusing.

13: Have you ever told somebody you loved them and not actually meant it?
Yea, because I felt pressured to say it. Felt really bad, I don't like saying it for no reason and prefer not to.

14: Honestly, has anyone seen you in your underwear in the past 3 months?
Yea, I think my mom and sister, because I was trying on a bunch of trousers they gave me to see if they fit.

15: Is it hard for you to get over someone?
Do I ever get over anything? It usually takes me ages.

16: Think back five months ago, were you single?
Yea!

17: What were you doing at 12:30 this afternoon?
That's in an hour. I will probably be drawing or eating.

18: Hold hands with anyone this week?

20: What would you name your future daughter?
I don't want children but I think Robin is a good name.

Nah :XD:

23: Did your last kiss take place in/on a bed?
No, pretty sure it was in a train station.

24: Are you good at hiding your feelings?
See I used to, and somewhere along the line I apparently became completely transparent. I'm not good at expressing my feelings, so on one hand it's convenient people are able to read me better, but also it's cONFUSING WHEN PEOPLE KNOW WHAT I FEEL BEFORE I DO

25: Have you ever cried from being so mad?

My mother!

Not right now.

Some peace of mind and less stress, preferably. Maybe a hug.

"Oké"

30: How is your heart lately?
Very platonic gay and also confused but overall it's good!

31: Do you wear the hood on your hoodie?
Yes, frequently. It's comforting.

32: Are you wearing socks?
Yes, two pairs actually, to warm the ice cubes that are my feet.

33: What do people call you?
Bienie. It's a good solid name. Lots of bean pun potential. Very well

Maybe? Who Knows (insert it is a mystery picture here)

35: Are there any stressful situations in your life?
University is Incredibly Stressful

36: Who did you last share a bed with?
For actual sleeping, that was my ex. It's been a while.

37: Did you do something bad today?
No, I didn't!

KIND OF especially in social situations, they are not my fave.

No, I rarely if ever sing.

41: Have you ever wanted to tell someone something but didn’t?
That is my constant mood, I am so bad at telling people things.

42: Who do you go to when you need to talk to someone?
Jay and Kyo get to know everything that bothers me and also Dog. Sometimes I throw it onto my vent Twitter or I go to other people. Many possibilities, but it's usually online friends because I can expres myself better in text.

43: Have you ever been taken to the emergency room in an ambulance?
Not yet, no!

44: What are you listening to right now?
Nothing.

45: What is wrong with you right now?
I need to get my shit together,

I have had it since I was 13-14 oops. I keep my old clothes around a lot.

Ohhh hot chocolate

49: Do you make wishes at 11:11?
No, I always miss it.

50: Are you a good artist?
Maybe not good. I'm decent though, and I have a few things I would say I'm good at. Lots of room to get better still

51: Love really is a beautiful thing huh?
I mean it is. I don't know if this refers to all kinds of love but sure.

52: Do you miss the way things were six months ago?
Nahhhhhhhhh I have had two jobs since then, got time to deal with some bad feelings I was struggling with, met Dog in person and acquired three qpps. Things are good now.

53: Ever been on a golf cart?
I don't recall being on one?

54: Do you have trust issues?
Not really, honestly.

55: Ever stayed up all night on the phone, with who?
Not all night, just late. I'm not really a person who can talk literally all night and also my mom has incredibly sensitive hearing and she would complain.

Nope!

For actual sleeping, being alone is more comfortable. But cuddles are nice and comforting when it's your partner.

I do hope so!

Hey hey,
I don't know how much life will impact my presence on here, but I figured I'd give a quick overview of what's about to happen in my life! Just for those who are interested, I suppose.

Next week, I have three resit exams, for the last three subjects of my Bachelor course. None of them are easy and my ability to study well for bigger subjects (as well as my motivation for them) is low, but I will try my best and see what happens! After that, starting September 4th I will probably be working all weekdays until September 22nd (so three full weeks, if all goes well and they keep me around for the entire period). Starting September 25th, my academic year begins again, what that will look like depends heavily on how well I did on those exams, so we'll see. I'm hoping to go for a Master in Linguistics with a focus on the pragmatics side of language... we'll see how that goes. Worst case scenario is that I don't get to fully enter the master yet and will need to do some subjects and postpone graduating university with another year, which would suck, but then again, I knew from the start I might end up having a longer university career because of learning disabilities. So I'll be fine regardless.

I'm also yelling on the inside because Awake, the first episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm comes out August 31st, but my last exam is September 2nd :noes: So either I play it and risk not being able to concentrate at all because I tend to get obsessed with things, or I avoid the internet for two days to prevent spoilers and suffer through it. If I can play it, that is, I still don't know if my laptop will be able to handle it. If not I'll watch some playthroughs, I guess.
I am so hyped... Yells

My sleeping pattern will suffer a lot during work because I will have to get up early, but I'm really, really bad at going to sleep on time. I don't know how, I just always end up postponing bedtime for no reason even if I know sleep is so good and I definitely want more of it :noes: So that will be a fun time... But I could definitely use the money, so I can't complain too much.

Anyway! If I get quiet during the weeks to come, now you know why. I will definitely still draw, but life will keep me busy. I currently don't have any owed art, and I don't plan to take on anything other than commissions (again, money is always welcome) so that will help me relieve stress a bit. I'd prefer to focus on personal art when I do draw. I'd like to have some free time, after all!

I hope you all have a good summer, and if school is starting for you, I hope you have a good time there (if possible)!

2. Are you a lover or a fighter?
Lover, I am too weak to fight.

3. What’s your worst fear?
I mean obviously the ones everyone has like losing everyone you love but when we're talking regular fears, HEIGHTS, I really hate heights

I wouldn't say maniac because it's not like we were good at it, but we had a lot of it and played with it lots yea!

5. What do you think of “reality” tv?
Uninterested in it. It's usually either boring or the secondhand embarassment is too much for me to watch.

I rarely ever have straws anymore but I tend to when I have them.

7. Were you a cute baby?

I was a very generic baby but I also had hair and looked rather uncomfortable most of the time. So I guess, yea, pretty cute.

8. Is the single life for you?
I mean... I'm fine but I'm also overflowing with romantic feelings and it would be nice to have a person to channel them on (and to draw couple art for). So I'm looking forward to whenever that happens again.

9. What colour is your keyboard?
Black with white letters!

10. Do you sing in the shower?
I never do, I never sing in general fffff

Manual, the electronic ones are weird.

23. What’s your stand on hunting?
I don't feel like it's really needed for most people but like if you do it then make sure to actually eat (or feed) what you hunt. Otherwise it seems like such a waste. Also don't overdo it.

24. Is marriage in your future?
I hope it is. It would be nice to have that.

Various derivations and puns on "Bienie".

36. When was the last time you were in a car?
Wednesday, when we went out eating for dinner.

38. Is Santa Claus real?
In our hearts,

39. Do you like having you neck kissed?

I mean I assume these are people but I really don't care about either so fffffff

52. Are you psychic?
I wish,
No, though I can be good at picking up clues and freaking people out with it. It would be cool to have spiritual things though.

53. Have you read "Catcher in the Rye"?
No, but I should.

54. Do you play any instruments?

No, I have fine motor skill issues and I cannot properly hold instruments or do the required movements right :noes: I'm a musical disaster.

55. Have you ever stolen money?

I'll Drown by Soléy

71. Do you like your job?
I'm a student!

72. Do you like your classes in school?
Some of them, a few others I really didn't like... Like Dutch literature... it was just too much and so chaotic I could not handle it and need to resit it, blah
I'm looking forward to next year though because if all goes well I get to do more pragmatics! And also more advanced linguistics with tree structures... again... but I'll have to deal with that I guess
I'm actually really enthusiastic about linguistics in general, I just suck at studying. Literature is interesting too but I just don't understand literature as a concept (I don't understand art as a concept in general, studying it is a disaster for me)

Not too dry.

74. Do you like these surveys?
If I didn't, I wouldn't spend this much time doing them.

75. Do you know how to tag three peoples?
