Writer's Block: You’ve Got Mail!

Once a day, if even.
I actually hardly ever access my email account. I usually only open it when I'm waiting to hear back from someone or when I know I'm getting something. If you're trying to contact me by email, good luck. :P
How many times a day do you access your email account?

Writer's Block: ONTD Games Giveaway

Ooh, that's a tuffie. Let me think for a minute. 

-60 seconds later-  All right, after 30 times 2 seconds of much deliberation, I have come to a conclusion.
Fox McCloud. Hands downStarfox has been my favorite video game.. probably since I first knew what a game was. He was my hero when I was 6, and he's still my hero today. C:
Plus, as an added bonus, I'd get to ride on the Great Fox and maybe an Arwing of my own. Boom.

Writer's Block: National Hugging Day

Aw, I was hoping for a question that I could go into full detail answering.
This morning after I woke up I walked into the kitchen and gave my dad a hug. The end. 
Who is the last person you hugged?

Writer's Block: State of the Union

I don't feel very comfortable answering this question just yet. I don't feel that I'm educated enough on what the position entails, other than being our countries head. Everything political tends to hurt my head, so I haven't gotten that deep into it. 
Because of my age, I haven't been able to vote yet. This was one large reason I turned my head in class, so to speak.
Well, that and I'm an artist, so I spent a lot of my time in school doodling on my assignments.
  It's 2012 now though, and I'll be turning 21 this year. It will also be the first time I'll be allowed to vote, so I better educate myself.
I was raised a democrat, and I'm pretty sure that I will continue along the democratic party, not because that's how I was raised, but because the issues they address and their views better match what I believe this country needs.

Who do you think would make a great U.S. president?

Writer's Block: Recipe for Success

I haven't written a response or updated my journal recently at all, so it's about time I did. I'm going to put a little more thought into this one, so I appreciate your time and I hope that you stick around and that what I have to say can give you some new ideas, benefit you and leaves you motivated.

  I find that when you set your mind to something, you can accomplish many things. For me, it's important that I really 'put my head in the game.' Too bad that sounds so Disney, not that I don't like Disney or anything. Seriously, though, If I don't have the right mindset, I'll probably lose interest in my goals and we can't have that, can we?

  I'm actually a pessimist who looks toward optimism, if that makes any sense, so sometimes reaching my goals can prove to be quite arduous. Fortunately for me, I have a wonderful and healthy love life, which helps keep me motivated. Support is a big factor in success, and thanks to my loved ones it's something that I get with plenitude. Of course, personal motivation is also very important. If you have something you're working for, be it love, fame, presidency or a house on the lake, hardships can be much easier to endure and accomplish. If you don't have something that you're working toward, then that's okay too; Perhaps you'll find it along the way.

  Choose your relationships carefully. No, I'm not just talking about your love life, I'm talking about all relations. The people you decide to hang around with can directly effect your life in many ways. On top of that, the more time you spend with a person, the more you become like them. Do you really want to be like that guy you let hang around, and your not sure why? I didn't think so. Heed this: I'm not telling you to dump your friends, not at all. I'm just suggesting that you chose your friends wisely.

  Something I like to do is picture myself ten years in the future. It sounds cliché and maybe it is, but I found that it really does help. For instance, lets say there's something that I am working through right now; I'll stop for a minute and think, how will this affect me in ten years? Will it matter as much to me? Is this a minuscule image in the face of the big picture? If I come to determine importance in my current 'mission', then I tend to work harder for it. Right now, that happens to be both my writing and drawing abilities. Both of these are important to me and how I nurture them now will affect me in the future, so I work hard to draw and write on a regular basis.

  It's also good to look back into your past. Perhaps what your reminiscing on is related to or similar to the goals you have now. Take a previous goal or action in your life; Are you proud of it? Would you do things differently now? How? How can you improve yourself on this note? Everybody has a moment that they can apply here. You may find that in doing so, you'll discover a little something about yourself and what gets you motivated and probably grow a little more as a person.

  Now focus on the present. Nothing is as detrimental to your success than how you spend your time right now. Here's a little quote that I'm sure you've probably heard at least one time in your life: "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift, and that is why they call it the present."
What this quote tells me is this: what you focus on today is the most important part of your life, and I agree. Partially related to this quote, today shapes who you are, so you need to make the most out of it.
As Relient K would say: "It's funny how you find you enjoy your life when your happy to be alive."

Okay, okay. Enough with the quotes. There are two things that I'm getting at here:

1) Happiness boosts your success rate.

2) Well, I have to get into another paragraph for this one, so stay with me.

  Set goals for your day to day life. You may not realize it, but in doing daily activities such as brushing your teeth twice a day every day, or picking up clothes off the floor subliminally teaches you action, responsibility and other similar traits. Doing these kinds of daily routines will help fight laziness and will benefit you in the long run. Trust me, I know from experience.

  There are a lot of ways you can find success, these are but a fraction of the ways that I can keep myself motivated, and when I follow these examples I often find that success does come my way. There's no other feeling quite like success, and I hope that my strategies come in handy for you, the reader, and leaves you feeling motivated as well. I put a good amount of effort into writing this and I really appreciate that you took the time listen. Please leave me a comment, I'd like to hear your thoughts on perhaps my strategies or even your own.

The misery that follows the blood staining this world is so great. The blade of evil in the hands of good, turning this world and sealing their fate. Nothing can come of their lives now that their minds have been scarred. Breaking away and regaining power is far more difficult than hard. Darkness will fall upon the world with poison and nothing more, so those can feel the simple pain flowing through their corrupted core. What leads this world in such darkness, unable to be cleared? Ones mind, of course can be erased, the past can be smeared. But keep in mind that it hasn’t phased the past hasn’t and won’t disappear.

Writer's Block: Chicken soup

Grr, I actually have 'The common cold' right now.
When I'm sick, I always, always always make sure I have a fresh bottle of V8 Splash Fusion in my fridge and in my tummy.

Back in high school, it was the first day of class when..surprise! I had the stomach flu.
As you could imagine, I couldn't keep anything down for almost 4 days. 
Then my dad brought me home some of that V8 Splash.. and it worked /wonders/.
Now I know exactly what to get when I'm sick with anything.
V8, I love you.



What is your cure for the common cold?
Once upon a time, my favorite day of the week was Wednesday.
Unfortunately, that is no longer true, due to intrusive thoughts that only breach my skull's fortified walls on that day.

Now I'd have to say that my favorite day of the week is Tuesday.
Why Tuesday? Its the day after Monday, you're not supposed to like it. (You may be saying to yourself)
Well, I have a reason that makes plenty of sense, but not everyone will be able to understand it.
The reason: I like the letter T, and Tuesday is a very calm and pretty word. That's right.
I like the color T a lot, though I'm not sure why.

Let me put it this way: I intrusively personify everything.
My phone, computer, my hat, hell.. I've even personified my shoes.
Along with this personification there is a color.
The color usually depends on the first letter of a word, which also determines the objects.. 'personality.'
Anyway, its a curse.. One day I'll personify my car.

This strange O.C.D. loves to operate my life, but it's not so bad.
