Time is fun. Its friendly, mostly. Its informative. It goes on and on, and is largely under appreciated some days.
Lately Ive been thinking a lot. Everything from personal stuff, what would I like to go to college for? Life stuff, how exactly is society effected by *insert adjective and noun here?* Little stuffs, what song would help me feel better right now? Larger stuffs, how do I contribute to the future of humanity?
Sometimes thinking too much is not so fun.
dA has always been so fun to browse around. I can remember when I first joined and could sit here for hours just browsing. Then I got enough courage to comment on forums and deviations and that was all very nice. For my part the images I was making were not anything special. But it was through dA that I found the drive to progress. There have always been helpful people here on the site, let alone all of the resources that we the people provide.
Sitting on the front page and looking at the newest uploads has become an enjoyable pastime for me
That leads to looking at galleries and profiles. Here on dA I enjoy going out of my way to say whatever comes to mind. Sometimes it is a sincere compliment, sometimes it is a random thought that popped into my mind when seeing whatever piece of imagery. Most enjoyable are the times when I find someones journal or newest deviation that contains within it some life thought or plight, and a response forms in my mind and swoosh out onto the page. Some of the best conversations Ive had on dA were completely by chance in that way.
Then for me the time came to start really making things as much out of default photoshop as possible. What had happened, is I was experimenting with the start of what would be my love of vector. Harry Potter
was and is a huge staple of my life. So I had done some blends with stills from the movies, and at least at the time they couldnt be on dA. But one of those had been a still of Emma, with a background that I had spent a lot of time on and was very disappointed when it was no longer part of my gallery. But, what do we do when our bubbles get popped? Get an extra big wand, some more soap, and blow bigger better bubbles!! So my very next image was the Rainbow Concepts II, my very first DD here on the site, and what has to date been the most viewed. (As well as redistributed unfortunately.)
So my most favorite thing about dA is how inspiring and regenerating the site can be.
If you let it. As with anything in life, you are in control of what you walk away with
