It's A Good Day To Be!It's a good day to love,
And it's a good day to live,
It's a good day to share,
And it's a good day to give!
It's a good day to be free,
And it's a good day to be kind,
It's a good day to be nice,
And it's a good day to unwind.
It's a good day to give praise,
And it's a good day to dance,
It's a good day to blow kisses,
And it's a good day to take a chance.
It's a good day to smile,
And it's a good day to try,
It's a good day to not worry,
And it's a good day to fly.
It's a good day to be happy,
And it's a good day to wink,
It's a good day to hug,
And it's a good day not to over think.
It's a good day today,
Yes it's a good day to see,
That everyday should be this good,
Because it's a good day to be me!

I'm Real, Are You?UPDATE 21/02/2014:
So this journal literally got so full that it won't let me post anymore thumbnails XD I've created a second journal, so you guys can just keep adding your photos Also, there isn't a deadline for this, so just send in a pic when you're ready to <3
Here's the second journal ^u^
EDIT: I realize many of you are asking as to why I am doing this. Why would I want to put my face on the internet with an insignificant sign that can't really prove who I am?
Because I wanted to create light to darkness, to help people know that you never have to stay the victim, you can be a survivor.
Please know that I am not hateful towards the offender, nor do I feel anger. I have dealt with my emotions, and have come to accept that what has happened cannot be changed. But maybe we can help to prevent incidents like this in the
When Things Get ToughNormally when things get full on in my life, I'm able to keep drawing to help me cope, but lately I just haven't had the drive to draw anything at all...WHICH IS HIDEOUSLY BAD because I have commissions to do.
So in all honesty, I don't think I've worked on anything for a good 1 1/2 weeks, so I promise to try and start again tomorrow <3
I feel like my problems with work just never end, and it makes me SO unhappy because I spend like...90% of my life at work .__. In any case, a document went missing in the office and my boss pretty much blamed me in very few words and then proceeded to tell me that I'm the least organized person in the office. =_= And I was like holy monkey balls have you SEEN your office?!
In any case, I've been applying for jobs at an extreme rate, because I just want to get the hell out! XD There's been a few good jobs that I've applied for, so I just have to wait and see now.
I got a call in regards to a job I applied for the other night, and the guy asked
I'm Real, Are You? Pt 2UPDATE: 03/07/2014
My sister found this show called "Catfish" that was originally aired on MTV a while back. It's nothing new, since they're up to 3 seasons now, but I've only just started watching it with her.
I can almost not believe how many people are out there stealing identities and pretending to be other people and being in relationships with their fake persona's. I'm dumbfounded every time I watch an episode because it's amazing the lengths some go to to keep their facade up. :/
In any case, you guys should totally watch it. It shows everyone just how this type of behaviour really affects real life, everyday people.
So my last journal literally got so full, that it wouldn't show thumbnails anymore XD So I've created a second journal :3
Here's the original journal
If My Life Was A MovieStolen from :iconnyanferb:
If your life was a movie, what would be the soundtrack?
Here's how it works:
1) Get your iPod or anything you play music on
2) Put it on Shuffle
3) When a song comes on, put it down as whatever is next on the list
4) Don't try and be cool and fake it
Opening Credits: The Flame That Guides Us Home - Demon Hunter (That's a pretty cool opening >u> )
Waking Up: Infra-Red - Placebo (lol I approve of this)
First Day At School: Skin and Atmosphere - 36 Crazyfists (I am impartial to this XD)
Falling In Love: Sooner or Later - Breaking Benjamin (Bahahaha SOON.)

Mental Breakdown: The Feeling - DJ Fresh Feat. RaVaughn (LOL "such a good feeli
So Much LoveHey everyone,
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday on DA and on Skype! <3 You guys have no idea how loved I feel, like honestly makes me want to cry (happy tears of course)! I have NEVER in my life had so many friends who love and care about me and it's just so...the feels...I cannot.. :iconlazypoolplz:

Here are some really awesome presents I got from my friends on DA:
Just thank you so much ;u; From the bottom of my heart
Womens Rights againHonestly Tired of it
I’m honestly sick and tired of making comics or journals or whatever about women’s rights. But it seems like every week there’s a new story about how some asshole guy makes some sort or sexist remark, or how women are being excluded from some place, or killed in others... I’m so sick and tired of it all. I wish I didn’t have to talk about it all the time because I think “women’s rights” are really just part of having “common sense,” but apparently the rest of geek/gaming culture doesn’t think that way.
I was going to make a couple of comics for SYAC elaborating on these recent issues, but I just don’t feel like it anymore. I don’t want SYAC to become a preach-wagon for Women’s Right’s issues more than they already have. So instead I’m bringing you the rundown in this journal instead of making more comics about them.
HumanityHumans are cruel.
Humans are killers.
Before guns it was knives
Before that it was stones
Invasions, burning homes,
Stealing lives and loves
Releasing crows and
Humans are good.
Humans are kind.
They live, love and laugh
They have the gift of hope
Helping them all to cope
Through evil human things
Sowing seeds and
Sewing angel wings.
Humans are strange.
Humans are incomplete.
Punches to kisses to games
Anger to love to insanity
Tragedy to crystal clarity
Whirlwinds of empty whims
Empty prayers and
Humans are living.
Humans are dying.
Ashes to ashes, soul to Hell
Or perhaps to Heaven
No human can really tell
If even either is real.
Letter To a StrangerYou do not recognize my name
Nor am I in knowledge of yours
Though we have never met before
I feel the need to speak with you
To tell you stories of my life
And you provide me with the same
But before we start a friendship
I wish to ask you a few things
Thus, your undivided focus
Is what I need from you right now
Can you pay fervant attention
To every word that passes my lips?
In years past, I have met people
Who love surface phenomena
And fail to dive deeper than that
Refuse to connect ideas
Will you hear the depths of my verse
And perceive me for who I am?
And many of these same people
Have done nothing to assist me
With any hardship I have faced
Have not been there to support me
Do you keep an eye out for friends
To have their backs in trying times?
When there arrives a dire moment
That requires a frank dialogue
And an unfettered honesty
Without any hesitation
Would you call out my behaviour
When it is less than savory?
All these things I ask in my search
For a deep, genuine friends
Controversial OpinionsYou know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.
Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.
But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority o

Feature time!Hey everyone
and this is a much belated feature from :iconpoetrynprosewatchers: . I apologize sincerely on behalf of the administration for not keeping this group as active as I used to especially given that so many deviations have been submitted to this group.
Now, before we proceed, I'd like to personally introduce our new contributor: :iconthegreendragoon:
Much like :iconjwa2277: and :iconpauper-circumstance: , I'm always on the lookout for good literature, and well - I look forward to having his company around here
Why not give his works a read? Here they are

Super Awesome Plz SearcherSuper Awesome Plz Searcher
There is now a button to show every tag, organized alphabetically. You can click on any of the tags to search for it. Tags related to spoilered characters WILL show up in the tag list.
There is now a [?] next to each of the options, hovering over it will explain the option.
Users that own OCs are now prefaced with User: ("Buttersc0tchSundae" became "User:Buttersc0tchSundae"). This, and the previous change to memes and OCs makes the newly added tag list much easier to navigate.
A message to other artistsI wanna sit down and type something out for you, give you a little.. encouragement. Meh.
I always hear the words "I wanna be able to draw like you" and "I wish I can be that good." And stuff like that about my art.
Have you ever wondered how I got to that point? It's rather easier then you think. I joined dA Sep 12, 2009 but I never drew anything. I did pen drawings here and there but it was nothing to really look at. Instead I looked at other people's art, faving a bunch of art that I really enjoyed. I took up instead of drawing, coloring images. I colored the crap out of images, I didn't know really what I was doing. I would smug the coloring around then slowly by hand start to erase it around the drawings.
( This is the old colorings, they are just lineart images I found and I colored myself, credit to the owners- http://s633.photobucket.com/user/aoi_oni/library/LA%20Colors?sort=6&page=1 ) Now notice how crappy its all done. No shading, spots missed, out of lines and everything.

The Lost Art: FriendshipEveryone has a friend somewhere no matter how close or distant they are. But how many of us really know, let alone do, what it takes to be a good friend? Some of us may not even know who a friend is.
Are they someone we know only so we can get free art, free food and mooch things off of? Are they the people we can tell our deepest secrets too? What about the person you only talk with to rant about everything to get things off your chest? Are they someone you turn to when things get tough and they're still there? Are they the watchers here and 'friends' you have on Facebook or do they have to be real live connections?
Author Robert Putman said "Happiness is best predicted by the breadth and depth of one's social connections." If you're not happy it's probably because your relationships are struggling in more than one area. So why not take a little time to learn more about real friendship and how to be a better friend?
Another quote is from C.S Lewis and with it he described t
IfI'm not sure who wrote this, but it's beautiful
"If you were a teardrop
in my eye,
For fear of losing you
I would never cry.
And if the golden sun
Should cease to shine its light,
Just one smile from you
Would make my whole world bright.
When leaves have fallen from the trees
And the sky is filled with storm,
Just the thought of your gentle touch
Is enough to keep me warm.
When the moon up in the sky
Shines a faint blue light,
Memories of times we've shared
Will keep me from sleep at night.
If only i had the courage
To speak these words to you.
Every one is from the heart
And couldn't be more true"
SO MUCH FEELS
