dA love for everyone! #126 I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!Interviewed artist: ChaosFissure :iconchaosfissure: Tell us what defines you as a person.While I believe that mostly everything I've encountered has shaped who I am on some level, I think that my pursuit of knowledge, desire to push the boundaries of what I can do, and desire to help out others are my most defining characteristics. How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?I don't recall how exactly I discovered DA; I was just starting exploration of digital artwork and wanted a place I could host artwork and perhaps interact with other artists, and I believe that someone recommended this website to
About drowning Have you ever been close to drowning? Do you even know how it looks when a person is drowning?Earlier today i was reading an article stating that the second cause of accidental death among people under the age of 15 is drowning. I don't know if this is correct, but even if it isn't, drowning is still in the top 5. It also talked about how some kids drown right next to their parents who are not aware of what is actually happening. Initially i thought "well, ignorant parents, how could they not notice?" then my brain dug up an 18 years old memory of a 7 years old me nearly drowning at a hand's reach of my father.... We were playing in belly-deep water for me (so it was probably between knee and hip for him). Not deep enough to drown in, right? Wrong! I loved to cannonball a lot and it was all fun and games until one day while doing this i couldn't sync my breathing to his amazingly fast throwing ability. I missed a breath while he threw me
dA love for everyone! #125 I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!Interviewed artist: noukka :iconnoukka: Tell us what defines you as a person.Woah, this is one difficult question! I think it would be my duality, which includes indecisiveness and liking completely opposite things. Everyone has a different role and show a different part of their personality in different situations and company, so I guess duality suits that as well. (I did a small self-exploring project once, so this answer doesn't come from nowhere haha, otherwise I'd probably never think of it) How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?Ooh, that is ages ago! I was 13 (now 22) and stumbled upon som

My cat and ILet's start off by saying we're both fine (: Healthy and lazy... both of us. We've both aged one more year since the last personal journal, she turned 10 at the end of March but she's still an adorable loving lady Many of you know i was complaining for about one year and a half about my weight gain and last week i gathered enough motivation to do something about it too. I started a dissociated diet that does not include starving on June 2nd and i combined it with green tea (with a bit of lemon juice in it so it won't make me sick) and so far i've lost 1,5 kg (i didn't follow it as strictly as i should have all the time). Slow but steady loss is the best For my interested Romanian friends this is Catalin Crisan's diet. I'm hoping by September i'll get down to my normal weight and body; meanwhile i have to go donate blo
