"There is no "I" in Team"
°jark The Beat Goes On
Actual Journal Beginning
I am just updating my journal, deleting the older, previous one.
Life has been hectic, but a good hectic.
I keep 1-2 journals on deviantART, maximum, at any given time, usually, just one...and have done so for over two years.

You have to try this, it is a riot. I made it to 323.4 feet
. I am still going to try to get a few feet more. Start by clicking the abominable snowman at the bottom, and hitting the penguin.[link]

I come here, on occasion, to interact with a few friends and comment on art. This is not where I choose to display my work. I show it elsewhere.
Stop jumping to conclusions, as your assumptions get you nowhere.
~~~~~~Quotations by Eleanor Roosevelt:
Reflection...is good for the soul...it helps one to sort out priorities...and focus on the most important and primary aspects of their life.
A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
~~~~~~We need to keep all victims of natural disasters in our thoughts, no matter where they are located.
Please take a moment to give your thoughts to those hurting/in need...to those we might never meet
to people worldwide
wherever the country they reside in
whatever their culture
to those who have died
whether through war or famine
natural disaster, or natural death. Reach out to someone, peacefully, in your own way.

Remember, as mature adults, we can agree to disagree.
We must stay true to our own ideals, and not the ideals of others; we must look inside ourselves, and find our sense of Self; and be strong, continue to read, be informed, and not follow what others want us to do.
Don't forget °matteo
Stop by and give him hugs, teddys, and your support. He more than deserves all of it, as equally as Jark, being one of the two original co-founders.
Please don't note me or send me comments in order to ask me for answers...I can offer none.
