Hey everyone, how's it hanging? I hope everyone had a very lovely Valentines. While like Christmas, it's not my favorite holiday, it's still very special to me. It's a holiday that is meant to celebrate love, and I like that. For me, Valentine's isn't just about romantic love, it's also about the love between friends and even family. For friends, love doesn't have to be about romance, it's love based on trust, faith, and most of all, loyalty. I believe loyalty is a form of true love as well. What's better than having a true friend who is loyal to you, who would do anything for you because it's the right thing to do? Other than lovers, true friends are there to pick you up when you're done, to let you know they are there no matter what and stand by your side. So yes, Valentine's is for true, deep friendship too, just as in families between brothers, sister, cousins, and between younger and older generations. The true love between a man and a woman is precious and powerful indeed, I truly believe in it. But love between friends and family can be just as deep, just as true. So here's to you, husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends....... and here's to you as well those who share and deep and pure friendship. Happy (belated) Valentine's Day!
As for me, nothing really that much new. Still working, still saving up because I really want to go on vacation this Summer. Last year was pretty rough for me, working AND going to college at the same time, and there were times when I was so tired, I could barely get up out of my bed. My muscles were sore, my eyes had bags under them, and I could barely think because I was so tired. But I had no choice. I'm not like most college kids out there now...I don't have mommy and daddy to send me money when I need it. Now that college is over and I have a bit more free time, I just want to get away from it all and just recharge. But before that, I have to make sure I have a good job lined up, as I really want to leave the one I have now. I plan on going to a employment agency that's supposed to be really good in this town, so please wish me luck. I'm sure I'll find something soon, and then I can start on my plan in getting back to New York City. In case I have not made it clear....Reading, Pennsylvania sucks balls and I can't wait to leave this hellhole behind.
Anyway, thanks again to you all who took the time to visit my gallery, and most importantly of all, read my stories. I can't say this enough, but you really made it worthwhile being here. I didn't come here on Deviantart to get "popularity", but I did hope to get a little acknowledgement. The sad part is, it doesn't seem like people like to acknowledge here. I recently read on a journal..well, more than one....on how recently, members here have pretty much stopped commenting on certain art. Just faving and running, or not even faving. Just viewing and running. The only ones who are getting most of the comments here are the "popular" artists. While in a way I can understand, it's still kind of sad and concerning that only the "big" and "SQUUEEEE! I love her yaoi fanart!" artists are getting the attention. There's so many talented, nice, and amazing artists here I've seen who deserve recognition. I always make certain to comment any art I fave and give encouragement. If I can make it so that others will do that, then it's worth it being here. Anyway, you know who you are, my friends and visitors who have commented and read my works. Thanks so much again and please, please continue to visit. Stay safe everyone, and have a wonderful, Happy Easter, my favorite holiday!
