    As for a job, it's inevitable. You may have to get one, or two, or five before your career, but it's necessary. I've found that getting a job teaches you life skills. From learning how to deal with people, to learning time management and fiscal responsibility, a job is a necessary step in your life.

    As for friends, they come and go. That is a sad fact of life. I've had many good friends in my life, and unfortunately, many of them are gone. But i've found that you can only control your fate. Ultimately, we find a friend, and they stick around forever ^_^ I'm sure you may have one of those good friends lol. No matter where we go, there'll always be some one new. That's why i've enjoyed my time here. I've had the pleasure to chat with some awesome people, with exceptional talent and personality.

    There will always be people coming and going. As for those new ones, I think you hit the nail on the head. We can only do our best to accomodate them and teach them what we know, or at least as much as they want to hear.

    Like I said, i'm expiring here. I feel like i'm making the best sprites and pixel art i've ever done, yet it seems that it's going unnoticed. I can't get the crit that i give out. That may be experience, may be maturity, but regardless, i'm at a point where my life is so hectic, i don't have the time to give to the community that it needs. And that's the simple fact.

    Well, to be honest, it's been work and school for me. Wake up at 6:00 am, first class by 8:00 last class ends by 3:30, Target by 5:00. That's my life on the week days. Weekends are just Target's time to kill any life left in me...

    I have little time for myself anymore... unfortunately... but you have to pay for college somehow... ^_^

    I try to visit every day, maybe every other... but i don't really post much besides what's in my threads... i'm surprised that both of them (GP's Art as well as NASCAR Sprites) have survived this long... they have to be some of the longest running threads around... but yeah, i do update them from time to time lol. Don't get much spriting done these days...

    Me and Fox were chatting, it seems that our age group is moving on out of PC... sadly. There aren't many members left in PixArt that are older than 18.. We're kinda the last bit of our generation... now, there's all these new young kids... it's cool to see them getting so into spriting, but (for me at least) it's hard to carry conversations or find good advice anymore. I'm not sure how much longer i'll be around here. I'll still check in from time to time... but i think i'm well past my prime here.

    good for you! That's awesome! Are you from the kansas city area, or will you be dorming? Meh, who cares, that's awesome! Great job! And even if you do or don't get into savanah... (scad right?), still, that's a nice fall back! Grats!

    So i guess that's part of the reason your presence isn't felt as much anymore... getting school done... smart... something i wish i had focused on a bit... i was the stupid kind of senior who slacked off a bit my last semester... spriting... video games... cars... well, it really makes a difference... because now all those B's that could have been A's and the few C's that should have been B's... they effected my gpa and my getting into colleges... so if there's one bit of advice i can give you it's:

    Stick it out. Just get your work done and finish strong. It's a strong temptation to procrastinate or put stuff off, but even still, colleges look at your last semester too. Trust me on that one... I've been denied from a few colleges because my GPA went down the hole my last semester.

    Anyhow, sorry i just preached to you. But as a friend... well, a bunch of words typed into a box, by hands, a face and voice you've never met...lol...it's just cool to see you succeeding and moving up! Again, congradulations!

    Your purple and pink hurts my eyes. Beside the point though. I think I'm gonna write some of our Pokemon stories into cutesy one-shots. Don't know where to start though...

    Everyone has their secrets 8D

    Hmm, I haven't thought about it before. I definitely think that anime looks much better than most cartoons, even Pokemon, which has to be the most poorly animated anime I've seen, seems to be better looking than most of the children's cartoons I've seen >_> Even if the animation isn't as fluid, the actual characters just seem better :/ I suppose the better art could influence them more from a younger age?

    Well, IQ doesn't necessarily mean how intelligent you are, it's just testing what your culture's ideas of intelligence are I think that's it, I can't remember XD 8D Could have something to do with intelligence though, since you need some to be able to just *open up* Photoshop XDDDDD

    The actual site could be a factor, too. Since pixiv seems to have a higher quality of art anyway, people may be more reluctant to post their bad art there, and will just settle for DA instead XD

    I don't really know any personal websites for fanart XD I just use pixiv, 4chan and perhaps DA if I'm desperate...no, Google Image search if I'm *really* desperate XD I could probably do better than a lot of the people on DA XD I hate bad fanart so much, it annoys me. Looking all out of proportion...you would think people could *see* that their art wasn't good But, if you enjoy it, I suppose...I do like drawing, but I wouldn't show it since I know it's bad XD

    You could see if anything comes up when you put in the Japanese for "Green Pokespe", I looked, and it's mostly just shipping stuff when you put in that, though XD

    Well...since he seems to be in a bad mood most of the time (or maybe he just naturally looks annoyed? XD) gotta do something to lift his spirits? o.O Off screen, of course 8D Pretend aeroplane is the way to travel 8D

    Hahahah, yes. It's *much* better than DeviantART Are the Japanese just better at Photoshop or something?? XD I've mostly used it for searching for PokeSpe characters since they seem harder to find on DA...but I *should* start looking for other Pokemon stuff. Haha, that picture's so funny XD It looks like it's in the style of Lucky Star. Bwahahaha, you've taken up loads of space with that pic XD

    So yeah, nowadays I head straight to pixiv if I'm searching for fanart :P

It's 2:59am, while I do admit that I stayed awake till like 2:00am on purpose, now I'm staying awake for a different reason.

There is no moral or something to this story, I just feel like telling it.

Our family always helps others in need, so when a neighbor kid of 10 years gets kicked out of his house, we suggested for him to stay here even if we don't have any room. He literally sleeps and has all his stuff in a closet. He didn't actually ask, but considering he got...

Or I will be, I finally gave in my two weeks notice. It went to much better than planned, my manager was excited that I was going to pursue freelance illustration!

I'm so excited about it, and I'm excited about my art classes. I wish I got more sleep last night! I'm tired so I can't really focus on writing my lessons that I want to.

:D And I need to make a blog layout.

I signed up to paint little kid faces at a wildlife center tomorrow. I was like "Yeah sounds like a good idea!" in class. Then when I get home and get into weekend mode it's just like "Why did I sign up for that? Man I don't want to."

The trick is that if I want to cancel I would have to call them on the telephone and speak and stuff.

I'm doing a lot better at saying No, and that's good for the social front. That might also be because it's 2AM now and I'm super tired.

But anyways, thursday nights we have Queers & Allies club and a lot of people go to IHOP afterwards (this is like 11pm). So I go with my friend and she asks if anyone needs a ride so you have three freshmen who want to go and they climb in the back seat. Horrah we get there, they sit somewhere else, and we eat.

So along the night...
