I am a human, a being composed of a lot of different kinds of cells which function as a whole. I have this annoying tendency of constantly respiring, and usually need to consume something of nutritional value multiple times a day. Once night falls, I frequently fall unconscious for long periods of time - which may or may not include somewhat hallucinatory brain activity.

Bio(logy) complete.

In case you can't tell, I'm a bit of a smart-ass on occasion. This is one of those occasions.
Interests
I feel like you all deserve a bit of an explanation as to what has happened with regards to why I seem to no longer submit drawings.

Here's the thing: I can't.

Submitting drawings and art is predicated on my actively creating it for submission. I'm not. I honestly have not completed a picture since May 2011. It's not that I don't want to draw, it's that I haven't had it in me to do so. It's like I've forgotten how.

It feels like the painting for ILackCreativity and his wife was a fluke.

I think this dry spell of art began in 2009, if anyone recalls that day that I submitted the entirety of my Miadhachain Legacy art from the DecemberTwentySixth account. That seems to be the beginning of this. Because that is around the time that my life went wonky and it hasn't seen fit to straighten out yet. Loads of stuff happened around then and life seems to have been one disrupting thing after another.

All in all, life has not been particularly conducive to finding the time/inspiration to draw. And then whenever I DO draw, the picture in progress always seems SO WRONG that I want to cry and wind up pretending I never made the attempt.

In short, it's not that I don't WANT to draw. It's that I've lost my nerve to. Something about it has me inherently scared and I haven't had the time to crack open what this block is so I can destroy it.

And that is why there have been no drawings in a painfully long time. Because apparently I have some sort of issues that I never used to.

...I miss drawing... I miss knowing that I was good at it...

ANYWAY. Maybe now that I'm heading into 3rd year university will let me do figure out how to get over this. We shall see. In the meantime, all you're probably going to see are snatches of writing and photographs.

I sure hope Praxis doesn't visit this house.

How did that ever pass home inspection?

And I can only imagine the utter destruction that would result if circumstances allowed for Praxis to find such that house...

Well, golly gee willickers! if that doesn't scream "Praxis" I sure don't know what does.

Why does that even exist? I mean really.

Yes, it's just a crying shame that no one has made a McDonalds variant yet. Or...have they? Well, I know what I'll be spending the rest of my evening Googling. :sherlock:

You know, the exact same question floated about my brain, when Corad discovered these candles. At first they were funny, then weird, then funny again, then I toyed with the notion that I might've actually enjoyed having such candles burning in my home - I promptly decided that the risk of attracting Praxis was too high - then I began to question what GOOD they'd actually bring. You'd think that it would only make you want to go out and buy KFC to eat. Then you'd have to...you know...put the candles out before leaving home. Then when you returned home, brandishing KFC, you wouldn't need to light them anymore. Then once you'd eaten your KFC you wouldn't want to smell KFC anymore.

My...my brain...it hurts! These candles are effectively a paradox! :nuu:

You will have to let me know what your search turns up. I can't decide which result will surprise me anymore. :XD:

Maybe they're secretly a conditioning tool used by people who never want to eat KFC again. At first they're all like "Man, I miss KFC. I wish I could smell some KFC right now." So then they light the candle and let it burn and fill the house with the scent. And then they're all "Man, I could really go for some KFC right now." But then they're confused because the house smells like KFC, so clearly they just HAD some KFC, but they don't remember it. So they manage to convince themselves that they somehow forgot it and move on with their day.
And they keep doing this until the mere scent of KFC leaves them so dazed and confused because "WHERE'S THE KFC? I CAN'T FIND IT" that they just vow never to eat KFC again.

...I think I have just proven why I should not reply to dA comments as soon as I wake up. :slow:

...The joy of saying "Yipe! You've discovered my secret identity!" is somewhat diminished by the fact that we already clarified this in the lunchroom the other day. But just to respond to this message anyway: Yes. Tis I.

:aww: Thanks, Bijoux! I don't know if we can qualify the day as "spankin'" but we can certainly use the word 'eventful' ;D
