Baby gender revealed!
We went to the hospital as you do and had the 20 week scan. Baby was there, wriggling about and being all alien like and scary. Every now and then a hand appeared and then you could see a spine. Freaky. Seriously I was creeped out.
Then the scanner woman pointed out the placenta and I felt the need to vomit into my mouth. Yeah, I'm not good with these things. Christ knows what'll happen at the birth! It will be HILARIOUS.
So yes, baby is there wiggling about, avoiding the scan thing. When the lady first looked it was upside down! She asked if we'd like to know the gender if she could tell. We said yeah it was okay. So she had a little look at their bits and pieces and the baby splayed their legs and we got an eyeful of fetusy boy bits! So its a boy AND WHAT A BOY. I laughed as the bits and pieces flapped about. I was a little sad as girl clothes are so much prettier and fancier but as long as he is healthy I am thrilled, some people can't have kids so I'm certai
Sex tomorrow and depression.Hello Deviants.
How are you doing? I hope you are all doing well.
Tomorrow I go to the hospital to see what the baby is doing and hopefully find out if it has a peen or a vagoo. I am not really bothered what gender it is, as long as it is healthy and has a face then I will be happy.
I haven't really been feeling all that happy lately. I blame all the hormones. Just wanting to sit in my house and be sad! I haven't even managed to go visit the BFF's which is upsetting. I hope that it will remedy itself soon.
I am also in the "oh god I'm having a baby. Do. Not. Want." stage yet again. Joy. I am sure when it bursts forth it will all be okay. D: It will wont it? If not I will sell it and use the money to buy kittens. Many kittens.
The dog will not leave me alone at the moment. She's never been overly affectionate but she is so needy and odd at the moment. Damn hormones. It'd be okay but she is HUGE and wants to lie on me.
I have sat down to write this journal so many times but haven't had t
My DA Story.My DA journey starts eleven years ago when I first joined. I was fascinated by how people could make colours and lines look so amazing when I could barely draw anything.
Whilst battling an endless fight with the voices in my head, I found DA and the community a great way to escape for a while and talk to like minded people.
I saw awesome art made with photos of normal people. Not super models or famous people, just general every day people. So I wondered if maybe I could be made to look 'beautiful".
I loved what was made. I loved how others could envision things I hadn't even imagined. I threw myself into the community, wanting to make everyone as upbeat as I felt.
I met people I grew to love, I lost some along the way which is pretty shitty but I still have some of the best friends I'll ever have and a load of friends across the globe. Now that is impressive.
Death sucks.Hello Deviants.
My Nan died last night.
It was expected and she went without pain but it is still pretty heart breaking. She suffered from quite bad dementia over the last few years and Dad looked after her at home until a few weeks ago when she needed constant care so she went into a nursing home just round the corner from his house. We visited daily and she was pretty okay with it all. However on Friday she was feeling a bit unwell and by the end of this week she was pretty much unconscious in bed. Before this she had really laboured breathing, it was pretty much a "death rattle".
I am glad I got to see her on the day she died, I said hello and such and told her I'd see her the next day and gave her a kiss. She then went peacefully a few hours later. Now I obsess over making sure Dad is okay. Him and his siblings have known this day has been coming so it is a bit of a relief that she isn't in pain anymore, but it is still sad. You never want to lose a parent I guess.
So here's to Nan
I seem to be having a baby...!!
It has a hand! D: How excitingly terrifying!
Manwife and I are having a tiny little person! I am about three months and six days, I was horrifically ill at the start, in pain and couldn't move. That then went and the sickness began, morning, noon and night I wretched. I also wretched if I didn't eat every few hours. Fun.
As you may know I am terrified of needles and veins creep me out so the first (ever) blood test I had was traumatic. I wouldn't let them take it from the crook of my arm so they took it by my wrist. Mother managed to put the numbing cream on the wrong part of my arm. The midwife got the needle in and then went "Hmm, there's no blood" and "your vein's wiggling out of the way". I saw Mother's face fill with despair. She knew what was coming. Then suddenly someone was shouting "NO NO NO NOOOOOO! GETITOOOOOOUT!" Rather loudly.
However my second one went well, the numbing cream worked well and the midwife got it on t
Married for a year! :DYes! I have been married for one whole year as of yesterday!
How did we celebrate?
We didn't. We got a take away Pad Thai that I managed to spill over myself, watched Game of Thrones and I went to bed as I had a headache. Fun!
If you are my friend on Facebook (which you should be, I'm hilarious) you'll see my awesome updates.
This bird has been twittering constantly. It has become my enemy.
You'll also find the tally of the animals my cats have brought me. Such as this shrew!
<img="https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/p526x296/10341604_10152252343668074_2260090088879198394_n.jpg?oh=200de0dd733f3b4771e0889b7a28dbfb&oe=540D9CFE"> I managed to get him off the cat and put him in a box to chill out. I checked on him later and he was on his side not moving. I assumed he had died so I prodded him. No. He was sleeping. So I brought the cats in and put him out.
Hope you've all been well!
What would you rather have?Legs as long as fingers or fingers as long as legs?
This is an important question.
Found my husband in bed with another woman.Urgh. We've not even been married a year.
What hurts the most is that she was a friend. I picked her up when she was having a hard time as she'd just survived a fire. I let her stay with us, eat with us and then this.
I can't believe we were once BFF's. Husband says it didn't mean anything but how can I trust him now?
I even got a photo of them together.
Here she is eating a delicious meal I made her.
And here she is in a wig.
Yes. I am still amusing myself with Cindy.
And here is Thistle on my head.
Hope you're all doing well.
I have a new BFF! Happy Easter or whatever.I have a new BFF!
She is called Cindy AND I LOVE HER.
Why yes, I did steal her from a skip outside a hairressers that burned down.
I shampooed her hair and everything. It is real human hair. D: Creepy.
Hope you're all doing well.

PE: Anime/Manga - Digital ArtGallery Month
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!
Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.
Since this Gallery has 2 different main categories the Gallery Overview is split in 2 articles.
In my article I will explain you our Digital Media category including the sub-categories. The Traditional Media category will be explained later by Gwendolyn12!
What is Anime & Manga?
Anime is based of the word Animation. These are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animations. When you talk about an Animation in Manga style. That's Anime.
But what is Manga? With Manga you mainly mean a comic book created in Japan. But this word is used for regula

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 1Galleries Month
Traditional Drawings and Paintings
These two subcategories of Traditional Art contain almost the same sub-galleries - the only exception is Technical Drawings in Drawings subcategory. There are many definitions to describe what paintings and drawings are and you can still add a huge "except..." at the end of each. General rule is: in drawing, you create the picture with lines, while paintings use filled shapes or surfaces. For painting, the medium is a combination of pigment and liquid (simply put), but some pictures done with dry media (such as dry pastel) can also be called paintings, following the previously mentioned definition.
Pictures focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery. They emphasize lines, colours and generalized or geometrical forms, deprived of reality and recognisable objects or beings. Very often confused with Surreal.
JULY + AUGUST: ART FEATURESThese are the featured submissions from the groups UnlimitedAnime-Manga, DrawAnimeArt and Manga-Anime-4ALL for the months of July and August! Check them out & give them love!
And please this journal so that it can reach larger audience, thus giving more exposure to the artists.

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 2Galleries Month
This sub-gallery is for three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions, made by putting together found objects not generally thought of as art materials.
Two-dimensional works made of a combination of other forms, often including photographs, newspaper clippings, or any other type of object which can easily be glued down.
An artistic genre of three-dimensional works, that branching from sculpture, are more about the concept than the form. They are usually designed for a specific site, but can be mobile, to transform how the space is viewed.

Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
