Wishful Wednesday: DeviantArt Membership

This Wednesday’s wish is something I may actually receive soon.

I’ve been a member of DeviantArt since 2010, although my current account isn’t that old. At the minute, I have a premium membership, which I love, but it expires in four months (June 26th). I’m planning on extending it. Normally, I’d go with a year or automatic billing ($4.95/mo), but I’ve been considering buying a 7-year membership.

It won’t put a dent in anything, so the cost isn’t the problem. What’s holding me back is if I’d even still be on DA in seven years. I love art and the site, but I’ve left a lot of sites I loved (Neopets, Millsberry before it closed down, FMyLife, Fanfiction.net to name a few). I don’t want to spend $200 on something I may not stick around for. At the minute, I’m not even uploading any art because I working on improving my skills and using my sketchbook again.

I’d like to say I’m certain I will still be on the site in 2021, but I said the same about every other site I was a member and I ended up leaving anyway due to my interests changing, despite still liking the sites. I have a long list of sites I stopped playing on or reading as a result, dating all the way back to 2004. Heck, I still remember what my character from Millsberry.com looked like and the name of my very first account on Neopets.

I don’t want to wait too long to decide because I don’t want the current subscription to expire, but I don’t want to just jump into it and hit “purchase”. I guess it’s a risk I have to decide whether or not is worth taking.

Mundane Monday: Pucca

During my junior year of high school, when my 2nd school gave their students iPads, my best friend got me hooked on a game called Pucca’s Restaurant (now called Pucca n’ Friends, it seems). Along with Star Girl, the game became my favorite and I was sad when I couldn’t play it anymore.

Now that I have my own iPad, I’m free to play it as much as I want. Like Star Girl, this game is simple, but a lot of fun. My best friend is at level 81 with this game and her restaurant looks fabulous! I’ve got a long way to go to catch up with her. About 71 levels to be more specific.

Mundane Monday: Self-Esteem Songs

I like a lot of songs, but my favorites tend to be ones about self-esteem, likely due to my own low-esteem. The first one I ever heard, I believe, was Who Says by Selena Gomez, who became one of my favorite singers due to that song (the video was a lovely touch too).

Since I’m getting this MM done so late (one hour before midnight), I’m going to share my favorite self-esteem songs. Not all of the artists became favorites, by the way. As sweet as the songs are, I have to like more than one song.

Wishful Wednesday: Special Days

My wish for this Wednesday is more of a fantasy than a simple wish.

I know it’s kind of cliche or cheesy, but I always wanted the first time I have sex to be on a special day. The best would be Valentine’s Day for obvious reasons, but I’d love almost any holiday.

  • Valentine’s Day – It’s a day about love! Self-explanatory.
  • My birthday – Again, a rather obvious one. It would be my birthday gift. Especially if it was on a milestone like 20 or 21.
  • Christmas – Same reason as my birthday. It’d be my Christmas gift.
  • New Year’s Day/Eve – Having sex for the first time would be a very special way to ring in the new year or end the previous one with a bang.
  • Thanksgiving – It’s a day to express gratitude and sex is supposed to be a way to express love between two people.
  • Halloween – I’d already be out of character with a costume. Why not more to the “out of character” act?

Of course, no matter what day it happens on, it will be a special day to remember. It may not be a big deal to remember for some people, but it will be for me since I am not a sexual person to begin with.

 

Mundane Monday: Stupid Stunts

When I was growing up, I was taught it’s rude to laugh at someone else’s expense. I still agree with that, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t laugh at people’s expense. However, I only laugh when it’s on TV.

If I see someone in person hurt themselves, my first thought will be “Are you okay?” But when I watch shows like truTV’s World’s Dumbest, Top 20 Funniest, and Most Shocking, I laugh my head off at the stunts and blunders people do. I find the stunts a bit funnier because they’re done on purpose. Unless someone gets seriously hurt, it’s almost always funny.

I also figure if they submit the clips to the show, the people in the clips must’ve eventually found it funny too. I wouldn’t submit something if I was still sore about it.

This isn’t from either of the shows I mentioned above, but it’s a compilation of clips where people have hurt themselves. Hopefully, no one was seriously hurt, or I feel bad for laughing!

Wishful Wednesday: No More Snow!

My wish for this Wednesday is a very simple one: no more snowstorms!

I like snow, but the snow throughout the town is ice. There are icy snow mounds everywhere. I’m happy for the students who get a day off school, but I’ve had it with all of these snowstorms. This is not flippin’ Alaska!!

I absolutely cannot wait for winter to finally end! I need spring!
