:bulletred: Was the cursing unnecessary at times? I'm uncertain about this. As someone who is quite antisocial and somewhat bitter myself, I'd ha...

Her hands are really messed up. They just look so flat. It's such a stark contrast against how well you did the coloring, gloss, and sh...

You know, it's bound to happen at some point in life everyone runs into a troubling and trying circumstance which pushes their endurance in terms of emotional and mental capacities. We all face suffering at some point in our lives. However I think that what is important isn't what type of turmoil we face, but how we respond to it. 

Last year I received the blessing and curse of being able to understand the major sources of negativity in my life and why they managed to gain access to me on a personal level, and while I've certainly not conquered all of those troublesome foes I feel like I'm at a point now where I can look back on pretty much the entirety of my life and heavy a heavy sigh - knowing that no longer will such things ever find a way to hold sway over me again. I'm safe 

It never ceases to amaze me the ways in which people (myself included) have allowed destructive and harmful people into their lives and then lined up an endless series of excuses for them. It's pretty scary stuff when you think about it. Blegh.

So if anyone  out there has a negative situation out there they'd like to discuss, I'm all ears. I actually find myself feeling better whenever I listen and try to help people out of damning situations by giving them my thoughts and relating my experiences to them. It's enthralling, in a way.

On a more optimistic note, I really feel thrilled about writing once more. Because if I think about what it means to be a writer, I feel that I am blessed with the immense opportunity to guide someone around a world that has been fleshed out. I let them explore new ideas that they might have never considered all the while maintaining a format that's exciting to consume. It's wonderful!!! I definitely think it's one of the greatest honors in this world.

So if you're on the opposite end of the spectrum and feeling happy or proud about something you've done or seen recently - drop me a line. I'd be glad to discuss such things. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for your time, and have a great day.

I believe in letting others live their lives without violent coercion from third parties claiming any sort of authority, moral or otherwise.

I enjoy seeing others treated well, and treating them well, myself. I love to look at cosplay and critique it, silly as it may sound.

I'm currently in the process of writing a novel. Now what to do with it once it's done...

The tribe I have had some contact with is Orang Asilie tribe in Malaysia. I'll never forget what my translator was saying before we got started. He was going over how he was going to translate. He pointed out that his language has no verb to be, like [you are] good, bad, wrong, right. You can't classify people if you take away the verb to be. How are you going to insult people? You take away ninety percent of my vocabulary! So I ask what are you going to say if I say "You're selfish"?

"Its going to be hard, I'd translate it like this: Marshall says he sees you are taking care of your needs but not the needs of others." He says, "In my language, you tell people what they are doing and what you like them to do differently, it would not occur to us to tell people what they are." He then paused and he looked at me in all sincerity and said, "Why would you ever call a person a name?"
