aly ...That is the best advice I have ever heard! Though, I don't believe in the "opposites attract" (personality) of marriage... So, I guess I'll be locking up my cereal in the pantry xD

If there’s one piece of advice I can give you it’s to marry someone who has a different favorite cereal than you so they wont eat all of yours.

A little bit about me...

My name is Sakura. (My real name shall not be given, not because I'm paranoid, but because It's one of the worst names ever =3= ). I believe that art comes in many forms. It doesn't necessarily have to be paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Art is anything that can be created when expressed with passion and emotion. Poetry, writing, designing, crafts, dancing, singing, song-writing, film making, and my favorite: acting! ^W^

I don't believe in natural born talents, because I don't think there's such a thing. "Talent" is just a term for a highly advanced skill that comes from hard work, dedication, and, of course, practice practice practice!

I'm a self taught artist, and open to new things. Now, I’ve taken the required art classes in Elementary/Grammar school according to the schedule of the school (like every regular school). However… everything else is more self-taught and learning techniques by either looking up tutorials or the “What does this button do?” method.

I don’t have my own style actually (especially not in drawing |D). However, I do like to do things and create things that few or no people have ever thought of before. I tend to stay away from hypes and bandwagons (i.e. drawing certain things “just because someone else is drawing them"). I feel like getting sucked into drawing things “because they’re drawing it” defeats the purpose of originality and creativity. In all honesty, it feels like a lazy excuse. I often times like to “take the road less traveled”.

Even if a meme or bandwagon gets so much hype and becomes popular for a prolonged amount of time, I still won't do it until the hype simmers down. Even if I see how fun it looks to do----and I really want to do it---and if I have uncontrollable urges to do it.... I still won't do it. Nope. If I did, I'd be more of a hypocrite than I already am.

Now, I admit, sometimes, I’d like to “Draw things that someone else is drawing”. But, instead of blatantly copy it like everyone else would„ I’d study it for a moment and ask myself “Okay, how can I make this somewhat similar to the original concept but make it different at the same time?” With that, I tend to add my own twist or my own take on things.

Anywho. Don't hesitate to drop a "Hi~" or some random message in my comments box (except for chain comments, I don't do those, sorry ^^; ).

A New Heart for Joy

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 25, 2015, 1:57 PM


THIS IS JOY





Joy is a docile and handsome 5-year-old kitty who loves to relax with his loving owner and his five other feline "sisters" and "brothers" in the house. However, misfortune has been brought upon this young kitty.

Joy has a heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is common in felines. In summation HCM occurs when the heart muscle is abnormally thicker than usual. Because of the thick muscle, the blood flow is abnormal and there is a risk of breathing problems, slow circulation, stroke, and many other heart problems.

HCM is treatable, but every treatment comes with a cost. 

His loving family that takes care of him are very short on money due to low class and lack of financial income. Yet, as much as they struggle, they put Joy first because he is also family.

His loving "mommy" has started a DONATION on the Love Animals website:

A Heart for Joy

The cost of full treatment is a wopping high number ($20k), but a minimum amount of about $1000 so far.

You can donate by clicking the "Donate Now" button on the page, and be either an anonymous donor or give your name. You can also make an account on the site if you'd like. When you choose to donate, you can pay with either credit/debit at the "checkout" or via PayPal.

Update videos, pictures, and info will follow to showcase how Joy is holding up with his condition.

On average, cats live a decade or so before conditions like these become a "normal" thing. But, when a condition strikes a young feline with his life still ahead of him... he doesn't have much to live for.

So, let this not only be a new heart for Joy, but also a new chance at life.
