Learn to Labor and to Wait

Having feelings? Strange feelings? Incomplete?

The Glow Cloud, meanwhile, has moved on.

It is now just a glowing spot in the distance, humming east to destinations unknown. We may never fully understand, or, understand at all what it was and why it dumped a lot of dead animals on our community. But, and I'm going to get a little personal here, that's the essence of life, isn't it? Sometimes you go through things that seem huge at the time, like a mysterious glowing cloud devouring your entire community. While they're happening they feel like the only thing that matters, and you can hardly imagine that there's a world out there that might have anything else going on. And then the Glow Cloud moves on. And you move on. And the event is behind you. And you may find that, as time passes, you remember it less and less—or not at all, in my case. And you are left with nothing but a powerful wonder at the fleeting nature of even the most important things in life, and the faint, but pretty, smell of vanilla.


Got something to say? Need to say it? Unfulfilled?

proud and terrified

Every time I feel like doubting whether or not I'm an artist, I remember how fussy and odd I am and realise there's nothing else I could be.

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 fact about themselves.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag. 
4. Chose 10 people and put their icon in your journal. 
5. You have to legitimately tag 10 people.
6. No tag-bags.
7. You can't say that you don't do tags. 
8. You MUST make up journal entry!


1. I have enjoyed doing origami since I was little. As I get older, though, I find less and less time for it. Sad dummy
2. I have approximate knowledge of how to play piano, guitar, violin, harmonica, hammered dulcimer, and recorder. (this does not mean I'm actually good at any of them, though)
3. I used to read and collect Teen Titans comic books, until DC rebooted the universe and ruined everything. 
4. I both love and fear sea animals. 
5. I really want to try roller derby, despite not knowing how to roller skate and also knowing it will end with me tripping over my feet in the first 5 seconds and bursting into tears. Heck yeah roller derby! La la la la
6. I never learned how to ride a bike. Bucktooth I don't particularly care.  
7. I love flowers of all kinds. La la la la
8. If I could eat sushi at every meal, I would.
9. It always takes me the longest time to get back to tags. :iconwatplx:

divine--apathia's questions, now with answers! 

1. favourite quote?
oh man. :lol: I have so many quotes I love so much. I'm particularly fond of Oscar Wilde's quotes, and basically anything said in Welcome to Night Vale. At the moment, I'm gonna have to go with "and while the future is fast coming for you, it always flinches first, and settles in as the gentle present" from Night Vale.

2. Newest music artist you've added to your library?
This is a tie between Le Tigre and Bikini Kill as I added them both on the same day. :la:

3. What's something you want to say to someone, but can't?
I don't think I have something specifically I want to say to any certain person, but I do wish I could feel free to be more open with people I'm close to without worrying about awkwardness. 

4. What is something that has recently changed about you?
At the start of the year I cut off about 17 inches of hair and transformed my hairstyle into what I call "the tumblr". :giggle: Short on one side and spiky on the longer side, it's about 7 inches in the longest spot, and 1 inch in the shortest spot. 

5. What's something you dream about, but never plan actually on doing?
Getting a pilot's licence. :lol: I love the entire idea of it, but I hate being up high/fear of heights, so while this sounds totally kickass, I don't think I'll actually go through with it. 

6. What's your irrational fear?
Just one? =p I have to say one of the strangest things I've ever worried about is spontaneous combustion. :paranoid: I tend to find ways to worry about almost anything. 

7. What's something we'd be surprised to learn about you?
That dA is the first internet forum I've been on? :slow: I'm not sure if that's surprising, but I never got people accusing me of being a n00b, so I assume I didn't come off as too n00bish. :noes: 

8. Favourite website?
This will rustle some jimmies, but Tumblr. :lol: The dopey side of tumblr, where people post kinda sad yet relatable texts and gifs of cats and fandom stuff and pictures of trash cans with the caption "it me".

9. Pet Peeve?
People who think they can tell you about your own life, know-it-alls, judgey people.

10. What are you currently obsessed with?
Lush bath bombs. :eager: I would not have heard of these without tumblr, either. They are so pretty and smell so good, omg. :love:

So, the rules say you can't say you "don't do tags", but said nothing about "too lazy to do tags", so yeah :lol:
k, bye! :wave:

Do you use q-tips/cotton swabs inside of your ears? 

9 deviants said Yes, screw the rules, I do what I want. :iconheplz: SHOVE IT IN THERE!
4 deviants said No, it's dangerous and there's clearly a warning on on the box. :no: Do you want to go deaf?

Looking down your page, I see Lockdown has deactivated again.
rockettreverie Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2015  Student General Artist
Saw your comment late last night, didn't have to have time to reply :paranoid:

No worries, I do the same thing to other people's pages all the time. :giggle:
SimplyHoliday Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2015  New member
I hid it because I thought I would be banned before I got to login again so I closed a bunch of convos that I didn't think I would get back to before I logged in again.
I try to think ahead :whistle: 
rockettreverie Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2015  Student General Artist
That's clever, actually :lol:

I tend to feel awkward when I have replies to send to accounts but they've deactivated/been banned. :noes: I never know if I should just reply anyway or let it drop...

Do you often look down my page? :iconsquintstareplz:

lel, I barely even look at my own page. :iconhappy-smileplz:

I hadn't heard from them in a while, so I don't know what's up with them leaving. :shrug:
SimplyHoliday Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015  New member
If I click on a page I usually scroll to the bottom. :shrug: rvmp I know everyone does it, hence why there are random convos all over mine.

And nope, I only just saw the Lockdown comment. I don't understand why they keep buying premiums only to deactivate.
