ICONS FOR RP!!!This journal is dedicated to all the plz icons used for RP. It will be updated periodically whenever I find new ones. Feel free to fav this journal.
MY FRIENDS...This journal is dedicated to all my friends of deviantart. They welcomed me with open arms and made me feel significant. Without them I wouldn't be able to continue being a deviant. I'm not liked by everyone around me because I'm different from them especially from the society. That's why I sometimes get the urge to kill myself. So I always try to find retreat in my mangas and my story. But coming here on deviantart, I realized that I'm not alone. I'm needed and loved. And that's all because of my fellow deviants. Thank you my friends

How to Get a Life.Exactly a year and a half ago today, my mother had turned to me and told me something. She had said, "You will never manage in the real world. You will never be independent. Stop trying, you just don't have it in you."
Today, I am happy to say, I have proved her wrong. Because I did exactly what I was supposed to do. I went out and got a life, and the kind of life I am proud of.
Over the last year, I have found my soulmate, completed my Masters, gone to Sweden and South Africa, got a job as a teaching assistant in a special needs school whilst I figure out my PhD and, as of the 8th of March, will be moving to my own very nice apartment with K.
Remember this. If I can do it, ANYONE can do it. I am not special, I am one of the 99 percent, and if I have the strength to fight, it is because you were all by my side every step of the way. Thank you...thank you for being there for me. Thank you for helping me change my world for the better.
I am back for good now, and I am going to try and ge
Fandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals On Fandoms
Like most people, I'm a fan of a lot of things. However I don't often wade deep into fandoms themselves. For example, I like MLP:FiM, but I wouldn't call myself a hardcore Brony by any stretch of the imagination, as is evident by my continued botches of cutie mark colors (something no hardcore fan would EVER screw up).
Part of the reason I don't delve too far into fandoms is because fans can get very... emotional... about their given fandom. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can sometimes be a crutch. I like a variety of series, but I'm not gonna throw a tantrum because of an episode name, or an animation mistake, like some people do. I don't like how angry or defensive fandoms can get sometimes, and for the most part I think people need to just calm down and relax and not be so standoffish.
Fans are, for the most part, good people who are just enthusiastic about a show or series. Just try to keep that enthusiasm from dipping into the negative side of thing
The O'Driscoll DictionaryList of words I've made up. Does not include the many words that spell check tells me aren't real, so if you see a word in my work that isn't on this list and you don't think it exists yet, tell me! It might just be that I've been using it so long I forgot it's not real. Click the word to see it used in its original work. I will add to the list as I go through old work to find the words I've made up before, and as I add new poems with new words I'll try to remember to add them here.

Culpeo babbles: Childhood OdditiesOdd topics require odd titles.
This journal exists because the other one's getting old and i needed something to keep this interesting. Also, the amateurish journal skin i created years ago annoys me and since i'm an absolute N00b when it comes to CSS i thought it would be best to finally remove it.
The last nights i was biking through our town to do nightshift (i love doing that. Not a single soul around and you realise how quiet even the civilised parts of the world can get) and while letting my thoughts flow i was grabbed by some intense nostalgia for some reason. I remembered my childhood especially and....how ridiculously naive i used to be back then. The way i saw the world, all the things i had to learn and understand first (the very anatomy of „sarcasm" for example).
I remembered some cases that appear especially wondrous to me nowadays when i think about it so i thought it would be funny if i share some of them.
Childhood Oddity 1:
Black and white television.

Please read.Back whenever I started hitting the front page of DeviantArt, abit after I'd turned fourteen I admit that my ego popped up a notch. And not just one, mind you. No I was both surprised and in awe that some kid like me could end up taking up space in a place where only masterpieces and loved pieces were seen. And honestly, it stuck out like a sore thumb because seriously, My art isn't that good. I was blindfolded by pride in belief that I could actually go somewhere with what I had. But after awhile, pressure began to set in and I felt that more was expected of me and I couldn't meet those expectations. I'd never been exposed to constructive or negative criticism before that point; so I admit full heartedly that I acted out of line and childishly. Which led to people being angry and hurt by my stupidity, and I am sorry. It should have never happened, and I promise that it won't ever again.
So as time pressed on, I began to get desperate,

Work long and hard... and then retire and slowly wither away in your old age.
If you are society's bitch, this is very likely what your "happy" life blue print will look like. Almost everyone does this, and it's not a coincidence: people do as they are told. Told by the movies, by their friends and family, books, tradition, religion, even government subsidies, and the education system, conditioned into obedience. So they, what are the odds that this is indeed everyone's dream rather than something imposed on them covertly externally, as I believe to be the case?

Oh my god I scare myselfWhen I was little, whenever I saw snow on the ground I'd like have a mini spaz attack and like lose my shit by getting so fucking excited about maybe the chance of stupid Oregon schools thinking that it was too much to drive on. (half an inch, I shit you not.)
And now my mum is like "omg Kyul look ders snow outside derp" and I'm just like,
:iconduudewtf: "Cool mam, make me coffee."
So long, inner snow child. You stupid fuck who thought it was a brilliant idea to go run out in the snow naked.

Oh my Gods, it's a miracle!My sweet baby fishy! I lost him down the drain during a water change because I am stupid and forgot to put down the stopper. I basically panicked as I tried to save his life, breaking the stopper and cutting my hand in the process. And for two hours I cried and cried thinking I had murdered him. It was horrible. But then my dad woke up and I told him I broke the stopper and what had happened. Moments later I find the little queer ( Valentine ) swimming in a bucket under the sink. I might cry again I am so happy. I know, I am being dramatic over a fish but he is my baby and I'm just so happy he's alive and safe.
The above gif was taken moments after he was safe and back in his temporary bowl.
And when everthing calmed down, his fins look so much better then I expected:
