Well, it's my birthday...I mean there's nothing much to say about it. It's not like I'm 21 like some people I know, so I can't drink the day away. All I know is that I'm going to be spoiled by everyone, so that's a big plus.

Also about the Navy; they want me to lose 20 pounds, I got a 71 on my ASVAB (which is above average), and I leave April 6th. I'm kind of nervous about this, but I know I can do this.

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything. I've been pretty busy with the military, getting sick for a week, and some other things. I'm getting back on this stuff today, starting with Lance.

Before anyone reads over this, I'm just going to say I'm joining the Navy.

I've been thinking about this for a long time and I feel it is the right thing to do to have a decent future. Being realistic, having novels successful enough in my current form will be incredibly hard. Being in the military will give me many benefits where I don't have to worry about not having enough. Trust me, is it all about the benefits. Again, I've been thinking about this for a long time, like since middle school. Even younger. My step-dad told me that, when I was a toddler, I would put on his sailor hat and claim that I would be a sailor. I grew up in the Navy for most of my life and it has influenced me into wanting to be part of it. 

I don't know when I'll be leaving, but tomorrow I'll be gone for two days taking a military aptitude test (called the ASVAB) and getting a physical. After that, they'll determine what best suits me in the Navy and tell me when I'll be going to boot camp.

My family and most of my friends are supporting me, and I hope you guys do, too!

  • Listening to: Sleazy by Ke$ha
I was in 8th grade when my friends introduced me to dA. They showed me their fan-fictions and pictures, which heightened me wanting to be a part of this website. Of course I couldn't go at first because of my age (I was 12 when I finally decided), so I had to wait an agonizing 8 days to sign up. I didn't know what was what at first, and just began 'submitting' my work on the journal (I was incredibly mortified when my friend Mandy told me how to submit).

Being a novice writer at the time, my writing looked something off a script. There was terrible writing and out of place lines that made me constantly think "Why did I write that?!" "Why did I submit that?!". Sometimes I felt like giving up and shutting down my profile because I was a failure. I wouldn't go past the first chapter of any of the series I was thinking of because they were nowhere near good enough; they weren't perfect! Yes, some of them evolved, but their styles were forced and they didn't seem the way I wanted them to be. Just thinking about this makes me realize that there's a lot to go through to achieve something you want. 

With some help from my friends, I pushed through my nemesis known as Writer's Block and began creating what I thought at the time (and still think) as my better work. Though I do not have Gifted Wings on here (my first big project), I still have:
Style Savvy Part 1    In her room, the phone began to ring. It didn't wake her up until 30 seconds, of which Daisy was a bit pissed off at. She looked at the phone and noticed that the caller ID said 'Strata'.
    "Crap!" She said. Daisy quickly picked up the phone. "Hello?"
    "Hello, is this Daisy Nelio? This is Grace Parkington. I just called you to tell you that you start work in half an hour." She explained.
    "Okay, I'll be right there." Daisy said before hanging up.
    She immediately got of the bed and tried to find something to wear. Daisy moved from a small town in Virginia to the high class NYC, so she wanted to look as professional as possible. She bought a few Époque pieces, but just a pair of jeans and a tank top. She was lucky that it was May and 80 degrees. She put the outfit on and put her long blue hair in a ponytail. Daisy got into her blue Prius and drove to Strata. Daisy went
Diary of Elizabeth HendersonMarch 10, 1809?
It was an average day at my house and I was eavesdropping on my father. He said that the presidential votes were over and they would be announced tomorrow. It was Madison vs. De-Witt Clinton. A funny name, I should say. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder, it was my mother. ?   
"Elizabeth, you were supposed to be knitting minutes ago." Mother whispered  
My mother was a beautiful and proper lady. She had long reddish-brown hair not far from her waist, deep blue eyes, and clean, fair skin. She expected a lot from me, too, since I looked a bit like her. But I'm nowhere near her; my hair is brighter, my eyes are green (from my father), and my skin is a slight tan color (because of being in the sun all day). And I'm not fond of being proper and learning a young lady's etiquette.
"Yes, mother." I groaned silently.
We went to the den and started our knitting lesson. Many times, Mother said 'don't make hast.' I tried that as good as possible. My father c
They are what I call my digestible work...

I got a lot better when people on dA started giving advice and telling me how much better I was getting. Onyx-Philomel once replied to me, saying "You have great potential". That was 5 years ago, and I still have that - along with many others - in my mind to give me support. 

Some drama got in the way of me and my writing, which by this time, I was obsessed with. I went without internet for a long time and started to write some more. This led to my cousin to discover my taste in music, entertainment, and just love for reading. At first, she thought I 'needed church' for my music choice and that me reading and writing all the time wasn't going to help me get a date, but she began realizing that a person's choices in anything is just that. A person's choice. She began liking my music, she read more often, she even wanted to be a writer. I influenced her and I was happy about that! 

And after some long, hard work I was able to submit my first revamped chapter of Hybrids:   Hybrids Chapter 1 - Drafted by VictoriaHollow

What I feel is my first incredibly detailed bio of an OC:   AkalaAge: 16
Height: 5'6"
Hair: Dark brown, past waist, half updo, beads on parted bangs
Eyes: Light blue
Description: Akala was born on a small island near the equator known as the Central Water Tribe. There, her family, relatives, and other residents lived together peacefully, since they were an exporting zone for all nations. Living on the island, she made many friends. Her best friends was a boy named Tamo and a girl named Wonna. They did everything together; play on the beach, make sandcastles, and listen to the tales by the elders. Tamo would watch the two girls practice waterbending by Akala's mother, Dekena. It was one day, when she was 10, that a strange  shape came to the docks of the island. This was odd because there was no scheduled importing exporting that day. Akala's mom, who was training her and the other students,felt suspicious and told them all to go home. Tamo and Akala ran to her house and told her dad, who ran outside after hearing. A few minutes later, ther


And even made a Valentine's Day letter to my darling DamianVertigo :    Happy St. Valentine's DayLove is like diamonds; pure, priceless and beautiful. Though sometimes love isn't always like that, I feel our love is as pure, priceless and beautiful as it can get.
I love you, that isn't all I want to say, but it's all that I can say. You don't understand what goes on in my mind when I see you; I can't stop smiling and when I don't its because I'm trying not to look too cheery. We have so much in common, from our favorite kind of music to how determined we are to make our dreams come true. How we met is a little funny, but I'm happy we met.
You're one of the few people that understands me, that amazingly knows what I'm say just by my expression, that can help me through tough decisions when I feel stuck, that knows my emotions when I don't show them. Thank you so much for being there for me, for loving me for who I am, for still being with me to this day.
Happy Valentine's Day!


My work began slowing down because of the amount of drama that was happening around me, especially in TX. Not wanting to go too deep into it, it involved my mom's then husband being a controlling tyrant. Some other things happened after that; a crazy divorce, moving to NC, giving away one of our cats, my beloved cat Cheeto dying, and finally the death of my great-grandma (Mema). I kinda just lost myself and fell into a this sadness where I was physically normal, but my entire body was pain and numbness.

Currently I'm doing better and am starting to get my groove back. Slowly, I'm getting back into writing, mainly for now writing bios that are in my sta.sh. I'm planning the second chapter of Hybrids, which is still my main project, along with Stardom and Spellbound

I've learned a lot about myself more than just my writing. Like all artists, I'm a perfectionist. I want people to see my work with no imperfections and if there is one, I will fix it (though I might have a micro-fit in my head). Writing isn't just telling a story, you also want people to visualize what's happening. Every sense they have, I want to trigger, and the only way I'm going to that is to listen to people's advice and get better myself.

I'd like to thank a lot of people on dA for encouraging me to stay and help with my dream: Onyx-Philomel , DamianVertigo , Belle1409 , and Timmy22222001 ...

After that escapade in Washington, my (then) angry mom bought a plane ticket back to TX. My little brother didn't want to come with us (he's very attached to his dad and believes everything he says to him), which made my mom and I very upset. We couldn't do anything, since by law it is his choice. 

Anyway, besides this bittersweet news, I'm back in Texas and just got here two days ago. As usual, I'll be looking for a job, writing, and trying to find a place of my own, because I'm getting tired of moving.

My next bio will be on Lance. He's a good friend of Tilora to the point where some people want them to date.

Before you go thinking "Why would she be saying that?!" let me fill you in. 

When my great-gma died, my great aunt (her daughter) wanted me out of the house by Monday. We buried her on a Thursday!!!

But that's not the point. My dad (stepdad) said that I could live with him and that he was paying the rent for three rooms from this woman named Missy (we'll call her that). 

This woman is sweet, loving, firm, and loves doing whatever she can for people. Unfortunately, she is also on disability, SS, and has just got her food stamps. She barely makes enough money, that goes for the money my dad, we'll call Peter, gives her - $1000. 

So a few weeks ago, she and I went to a local gas station to get a treat. Missy then tells me halfway through the drive that dad not only didn't pay her in full, but gave her a bad check that put her account in the negative. Missy's bank has this strict rule of of charging $10 a day for her overdrawn fees. As of now, she owes them a little over $900 dollars, which includes the money that she still needs to pay for her bills. 

"But he gave her the money, right???" FUCK NO!!! And I know this is a serious situation and I shouldn't be cussing, but this makes me angry on a personal level because I thought my dad had changed. He used to be so full of anger and would verbally (and sometimes) physically abuse me and my mom. Though he hasn't shown any physical altercations towards us, he still manipulates my brother into thinking that it isn't all his fault for a lot of things. He has this mentality where he thinks he's always right and he is the most arrogant and stubborn person I know.

Missy wanted to kick him out for this, because he has done this to her once before, but he ended up calling the cops on the way back home, of which they told her by law she can't kick him out unless she goes to court and gets a formal slip.

I'll be fine - I'm moving back to Texas because of this - and it seems dad has found a house to live in on his own, which gets me wondering 'if he has enough money to pay for a house, where's the money he owes her?'

So I'm just asking you to please help this woman out, because she really is someone who doesn't deserve this. I don't ever ask for much in real life, so this is new for me to do on my own, but Missy is such a kind woman who has been through a lot in her past and is just trying to get by. Here is the link:My Friend Might Lose Her House! and I thank every one of you for helping her out!

Hey kiddo, friend of the great Damian.  I heard you were going through a pretty tough time recently from the loss of a love one.  I understand how you feel, I have also lost my grandmother a few years back, and my grandfather is currently in a hospital to get surgery and may not make it through.  I know it can really hurt to lose someone so close and you have my condolences.  Stay close to the ones you love for support, and it sounds like you have a very caring man by your side.  I wish you the best through your endeavors, and hope you find strength in the ones you love.
