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.

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.

 

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!

Wishful Wednesday: Hurry Out, February!

Usually, I’m in no rush for even a day to end unless it’s a bad one, but for this Wednesday, my wish is for February to hurry up and get out!

The reason is there are some things I have planned for March, when spring arrives and the weather begins to become warm. My plans probably won’t start at the very beginning of March, but I think they’ll start fairly early.

I mentioned him already, but Emmi is a part of those plans. I said I wanted to meet up when temperature rises because it’s just too cold right now.

I’m planning to do a little clothes shopping, but online instead of in a store. I found some pretty, floral, one-shoulder shirts on eBay. I’ve never been able to find one-shoulder shirts. Never seen them in any store I ever went to.

Finally, there’s a special gift I’m planning to buy. In fact, that’s the first thing I want to do. I won’t say what it is, but I am so excited about it, especially because I’m paying for it entirely. No one is helping me, so no one can complain.

I am so excited for March to come, I feel ready to burst! Honestly, I really feel like this year will be a good one. Hurry up, March!
