Already half of Summer is goneI can't believe it. Half of summer is already done. In only 4 more weeks I'll have to go to my new catholic high school. I know I need to go to school but damn I wish sometimes it wasn't a religious one. I mean I never really was a religious person even when I was young. So going to these religious facilities can be a real annoyance. The good thing is I get out at around 2:30PM at that school. So I'll have a whole lot more time than my middle school!
Well wish me luck okay.
This'll be shortI just want to tell you guys my summer is going pretty great. I've been writing a lot more so that is a good thing. I'm even working a bit (slowly) on a novel. It's all for fun of course. Well wish me luck.
This Story is Coming to a Wrap...From the looks of it my final year of middle school is coming to a close. Only 15 more days and I start anew. I am glad that it is happening, growing up and learning has taught me so much that I'm glad for. Even though I can say that everything is perfect in my life but I'm glad for this new road. So thank you to everyone who has and will watch me.
I wanna start commissions for points.I would really like to start commissions for my account because it wouldn't hurt now after being on DeviantArt for a few years. But now the question is bugging me where do I get started. All I can do is literature, poetry and anything that is writing based but I don't know what to price my stuff at and how it all works. Could people give me some advice, Id appreciate it.
Standardized Tests...New York has started the NYC State tests and I've been drained from that and school. So sorry if I am not too active. Hopefully I'll upload something to DeviantArt again.
School, then Spring BreakGuess what, today after I get out of school will be Spring Break. I am so excited for Spring Break because I will have more time to write and publish my art on to DeviantArt. Hopefully I will submit somethings over this break. Now I hope all of you enjoy your Spring as well.
Thank YouI know I have said this before but I just want to say it again. Thank you all for watching me and giving your time to check out my art. I have learned so much from it all and I get really sentimental when I look back at how I started. My first few submissions to this site were horrible but as time went by I kept on improving and look at were I am. I couldn't have improved if it weren't for all the motivation from this site and especially to you my watchers. So to end this I say: Thank You!
Also it's my birthday tomorrow so I might make another journal for tomorrow.
I'm back online...Apparently, my monitor is perfectly fine. I just needed a new VGA cord,so that is great. I will hopefully be updating soon enough. So, see ya.

Five Things About Myself:
1. I didn't actually start becoming interested in Writing until I first wrote in a notebook about a squirrel who lost his parents and decided to go to the big city.
2.I talk to myself all the time.
3. I can be hypocritical at times when I forget something in the past.

Questions for Me:
1. If you could choose how and when you die, what would you
PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an

Art and value of timeDear, deviantart fellow artists
Our lives go by so fast and the time for what we really want to do is limited. So, how to wisely value our time, how to make the best of every single day and keep on creating?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
Sort what are the most important things you need to do as soon as possible and start with that. Make a list with what needs to be done and sort them by how necessary it is to do them, how much time it will aproximately take and how the result could impact your life. We have to make constant sacrifices in order to achieve our goals - instead of watching that useless youtube video, instead of checking e-mail and social media sites all the time, instead of whining that there is no time, but actually using what we have - everyone of us have 24h in a day, the difference between

AKUXBLOSSOM OFFICIALLY CANONLadies and gentlemen, friends and foes, etc:
We are gathered here today in honor of our precious babies, to celebrate a triumph previously unknown to our kind. Yes, the small but devout followers of the cult of Akublossism can now savor the sweet taste of satisfaction knowing their wildest dreams are at hand. I speak of absolution, my friends. I speak of the glory of the massive and indestructible ship we sail, and our conquest of the turbulent waters of the internet to spread our gospel to every fandom-shore.
I speak of endless possibilities, or more specifically, ONE possibility that has been acknowledged by Cartoon Network.
Some of you may be aware of IDW Publishing's new endeavors with Cartoon Network properties. Some of you may even be aware of one such project, Super Secret Crisis War, a work that includes both Aku and Blossom in its plot.
Long have we awaited this day, and at last it has come. Today may it be known that when the disbelieving world looks down upon us as fo

deviantART Compliments #136To: XRomeoKnight
Your the best friend I've ever had in this site,No one could replace that.We both known each for more than 8 months,and I really enjoyed every single memory with you.
I'm happy to find a friend like you that I can be myself,it's not like any others which is awkward.
I feel touched from the birthday gifts you made,and the things you did for me as a friend..I never really thought I would meet someone as amazing like you...
Even though we have 12 hours time different but that doesn't mean this friendship can't continue.
I can't even imagine where I would be today if it weren't for you who have given me a heart full of joy.♥♥
