Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '99.
Wear sunscreen.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.
The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience...
I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked...
You're not as fat as you Imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind.
The kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you.


Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy;
Sometimes you're ahead,
Sometimes You're behind.
The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.
Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults;
If you Succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your
The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.
Get plenty of calcium.
Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.
Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.
Whatever you do, don't Congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either.
Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body, Use it every way you can... Don't be afraid of it, or what other people Think of it,
It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own...
Dance... even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.
Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.
Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.
Brother and sister together we'll make it through
Someday your spirit will take you and guide you there
I know you've been hurting, but I've been waiting to be there
For you.
And I'll be there, just tell me now, whenever I can.
Everybody's free.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good.
Be nice to your siblings;
They are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.
Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard;
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will Philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.
Don't expect anyone else to support you.
Maybe you have a trust fund, Maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.
Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen...

Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free (to Wear Sunscreen) Lyrics

.:: L.O.V.E ::.

A good relationship is when two people accept each others past, support each others present, and love each other enough to encourage each others future. So don't rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won't cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about.

.:: Motivation ::.

“If you can’t believe in miracles, then believe in yourself. When you want something bad enough, let that drive push you to make it happen. Sometimes you’ll run into brick walls that are put there to test you. Find a way around them and stay focused on your dream. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
― Isabel Lopez, Isabel's Hand-Me-Down Dreams

Traditional Art

Mon Apr 7, 2014, 11:13 AM

I've been working with my traditional art again since it's been so long (but feels great!)  And I was thinking of posting some up here.

The question I have for you is, what would you like to see?

Most of my artwork on this account is feline based. But I do draw other things. My main subjects are normally

1. Felines
2. Birds
3. Dragons
4. Canines
5. Fish

I also do scenery, but I can't list that as one thing XD

As for mediums

1. Colored Pencil
2. Graphite Pencil
3. Sculptures
4. Paints
5. Charcol
6. Markers

Please don't say "I'm fine with seeing anything you feel like posting."  This isn't about me, this is about you and I'm wanting to know what you're wanting to see XD

  • Mood: Wow!
  • Listening to: One Love

Other Accounts

Hello there! Most people call my Icy, but you can call me anything so long as it isn't offensive. I am a 19 year old who is a Freshman in College. I love drawing, it's a way for me to have fun, make new friends, as well as relieve a lot of stress. My work comes before art.....or it's suppose to XD I'm a huge procrastinator. However I do take things such as school very seriously. So expecting a frequent flow of art coming in, isn't going to happen. I post whenever I have time XD Aside from that, I'll list some things I like and don't like.

anime, manga, drawing, reading, writing, roleplaying, talking with friends, making new friends, brainstorming ideas, yaoi, hugs, cats, dogs, all animals, soft objects, fuzzy objects, being a perv, watching other's reactions, sneaking up on friends, hugs, warmth, butterflies, crosses, music, neon lights, mature kids, yest rolls, bread, honey, backstrap, fish, shrimp, sushi, milk, swimming, climbing trees, pumpkin seeds

spiders, plain white walls, fakers, attention seekers, immature kids, art blocks, writers block, coldness, human blood, procrastination, horror movies, pumpkin anything else, adults acting like children, math
