has it really been 6+ months?
well. after deciding to return, even if just to lurk, a friend wanted me to clear my friends list (since there was 500+ names on it). and use this name. so I have returned.
maybe even to stay this time.
What the hell?I come back after a few days, and suddently everything has decided to be a bit cash hungry and crazy?
oh now we have this "premium access" and...... oh no just stfu right now.
good god. I'm not paying anything because I don't feel any attachment to this site anymore.
good news: I got a job
Bad news: it's telemarketing.
but this is just something else. I know I haven't posted in a while, but still, coming abck to see this kinda makes me not want to post ever again.
It's ready!Photodumps ahoy!
this is all of them. every last one.
if I feel like it I'll add descriptions to them.
Anime north!I just go back from http://www.animenorth.com
I'm tired. but I'll make a photobucket site for everything after I sleep.
Birthday countdown. OMG.Birthday Countdown from this journal.
OMG THERE"S only : 17 days left until my birthday! HOLY COW!
in other news. yes. I have returned. photoshop art will resume shortly. I now work in tech support.
invadin yer computers, one hard drive at a time
Tech log /reportI have gone over the basic issues. if there's anything else you want me to takl about. please ask. and then I will make a new entry. otherwise I'm not going to rehash the previous.
Tech log day 3today before I start my work, I'm going to ask you people a question. when you call for tech support (the 24 hrs kind), when do you call? I mean I saw my queue at about 7, there was no customers waiting for a tech agent, and then no more than an hour later, there became a growing number of people. it contined for the next hour, even going as high as 30 people in queue! only when I was about to leave the shift an hour after that (10pm) did the queue die, COMPLETELY. as in there was no one on hold.
Now I understand that around 8-10 is when you've had your meal, you've done what you need to do, but please. be considerate here. it's psychologically hurtful to have that many people on the queue when your still in training. please. please please remember, try it during the day, or at around 5. it makes life much easier for the techs.
Will post more on later breaks.
The Tech "graveyard" shifts are killer.
they force you to change your idea of time. the sun will no longer matter. you are done
Tech Log Day 2Interesting fact about tech support.
I NEED to hear you. speak as loudly please. I mean It took me at least 4 minutes to do a 10 second job, finding identification and security today. tech support agents will very VERY rarely ask you to lower your voice (if your not yelling already at us). talk clearly and then we can listen to you, but if we can't hear you and then as a result we can't verify who you are, we the techies can do very little.
The things that get me:
it's not the normal calls that get me down, its the ones where I'm trying as hard as I can to make this work and there is some problem that's not letting it work for me.
Tech agents have an assload of tools you will most likely never see, I'll say it myself, I can't perform tech support unless I have those tools. I have flowcharts and such to guide me through. I don't have those anywhere else.
So please, don't have too many expectations of me.
I can only help you as much as you want to be helped.
The Art of MisunderstandingCompliments are a bit of a tricky and weird thing.
Especially on an international webpage.
=> the misunderstanding
In Switzerland you can tell someone who's a cool person that they are "en geile siech". Now, this is a really big compliment here, even though it's not considered the most polite vocabulary. Still, big compliment.
If you translate that 1:1 into any other language, you will tell the other person they are a sexually arousing and rotting corpse of a horse.
Don't do that, most people don't will look kindly on it. d:
Of course the same problem exists in the other way too. I was feeling rather saddened by the first one who told me that my drawings are "da shit". I had NO idea that this is a positive thing! I just assumed the other person told me that my works were bad. Thankfully, I asked them why they thought of my drawings as bad, which helped clearing that misunderstanding up really fast.
=> "Looks like Ghibli!"
After a few years on dA, I started to hate

Base Personality 1-50
1. Lazy: I don't focus. Being a couch potato is more appealing.
2. Energybomb: ZIP! ZOOM! WEEEE! I'm hyper active and that means I'm really hard to train and getting my attention will take a lot of patience. I will need a lot of activation to tire me out.
3. Snob: Hmmpft…You're not good enough to command me .
4. Bipolar: WOO I'm focused! I'm happy! I'm annoyed and refuse to do anything you tell me.
5. Nervous: I heard something out there…I'm pretty sure I heard something…*perks ears and stares intently*
6. Dumb: Remembering all of those commands and obstacles is hard. You'll have t
ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.

Dirty Little Secret. (Claude Faustus X Reader)Let me know that I've done wrong
When I've known this all along
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you
(Y/n) squirmed under the demon's grasp. Her brightly and thickly slathered red blush across her cheeks didn't help in this situation either. The black haired man smirked widely, his glasses sliding a bit down the bridge of his nose. "(Y/n)...why are you so afraid?" He asked oh-so-sweetly, making her (e/c) eyes lock with his crimson ones. "Y-You're a s-s-sadist, dammit..." She huffed and looked to the side, just as the creature made from Satan himself leaned down so that his lips met with her cheek.

The (h/c) haired girl gulped a bit. Him being a demon was enough...but being intimate like this? It frightened her a bit. He never looked at her during the time that she worked, and only spoke to her if he needed a chore done. What was this? Did s
