I don't know whether or not this will still be relevant within, say, a few days, but I'm thinking of taking a bit of a break from DA just to practice a bit. It's no secret that my work desperately needs improvement (accepting that my work simply sucks and I'll never be able to draw decently was a weird feeling). It's not a real hiatus per se (I'll just be posting less for a little while) but definitely just a bit of a short vacation. Hope you understand, thank you.

In a fandom, do you ever notice how the 'dark/edgy' version of a character is always seen as super hot by fans even though they're probably canonically less so?

So this is probably the last thing my watchers want to hear because you didn't watch me to put up with all my pointless drama, but this is important. 

For the past weeks, my therapist has told me that I'm showing symptoms of depression. Everything's just been really bleak, and when I'm not a complete noodle I have anxiety to freak me out all the time. A lot's been going on but at the same time nothing's actually happened. I'm just really stressed and when I'm not I don't feel much. I don't know how to describe it in an accurate way, but I'm just sorry. I'll be active on DA but might not post as much art for a while. Just a constant art block and when I feel a spark of motivation for art it disappears halfway through the work. This means there will be a lot more shitposts because I have nothing of quality to submit. Kind of a semi-hiatus, I guess?  

Grateful shout out to my new watchers, I'm sorry this had to be the one of the first journal entry you see from me

Okay so I've made a few subtle changes to Azure's design, and soon I'll be getting a pen for the mobile device. The program I use is "Drawing Desk", and you basically just draw with your finger, and there aren't many tools to work with. I'm getting the pen and a new program, so hopefully my future work will look a bit better.

That aside, welcome to November! :D

So after my recent post about the rooster being stolen and most likely killed, I'm afraid I have no happy news to follow it. Over the weekend, all of the chicks we were keeping suddenly died but two. One of the remaining ones wasn't doing well, and at this point I don't know whether he's still alive at this moment. They were the cutest, tiniest, fluffiest chicks. They were buried outside the building. 

Next, I was going to make a journal entry about this a while ago, but I rescued a dying zebra dove fledgling off the streets. When I first found her, I thought she was dead. She was soaking wet (we had gotten a lot of rain that day), on her side, eyes closed, looked like she was decaying (turns out she was just scruffy). Me, being me, surrounded her with leaves since there were no flowers handy. When I placed the last leaf, she shifted, ever so slightly. At that moment, I could see her breathing. Her fragile body slowly heaved each breath. She was alive. I was so shocked I hurried over to the Ag teacher (this takes place in Agriculture again) telling him that the bird was alive. Apparently he'd seen the 'dead' bird, too, and was surprised to hear the news. I got a pair of gloves, headed back, and cradled the young bird in my hands. There were no boxes, blankets, or towels handy (my family has rescued many birds, and had taught me that warmth is a priority) so we somehow settled for a bucket and a rag we found in the shed. I carefully placed the small zebra dove in the bucket in the shed, and whispered to her ('him' I thought at the time) quietly.

"I'm going to name you Atlas."

I continued to verbally reassure the weakened fledgling that she was going to be okay. At that time, Ag was over. I made plans to come back during lunch to see if she was still alive. I didn't expect her to survive the next two hours, but I was overjoyed to find her barely moving but still breathing. The shed had been wide open the whole time (wind), and it was raining, yet she was still alive. Two hours later, when school was over, I went back to the Agriculture building. At first I began to panic because the gate to the garden was locked, but was grateful to find that the Ag teacher had placed the bucket by the door. I couldn't take the bus because they don't allow animals. You can't just show up saying "yes here is bird, give ride please". 

So I called my mom up to give me a ride home. She drove over and I brought the bird into the car. When we got home we prepared a cozy, warm box with blankets to shelter Atlas. I was confident in the tiny zebra dove. She had survived being weathered by the rain and wind out in the cold, she had survived sitting alone in a bucket with no source of warmth other than an old rag and her own body heat. At that point, I couldn't have been more grateful for the little bird. The fact that she had kept breathing. The fact that she kept existing through the cold, harsh, conditions meant one thing:

Atlas was alive.

 That simple fact was a miracle to me. We got her to eat, and her feathers were dry by the time we had the box prepared. She lived well for those days. She was kept warm and fed as she recovered. We called a local animal rescue center that kept injured animals that couldn't be returned to the wild just in case Atlas couldn't be rehabilitated to nature. She was able to walk and fly, but didn't much. She usually sat in one place and refused to move unless completely necessary. This of course, was concerning. However, we brushed it off and desperately hoped she's get over it. She was surprisingly passive and affectionate after a few days, too. She continued to recover, living and breathing.




Until one day, she stopped breathing. Just today I came home to find out that she had passed away that very night. The small, peaceful, recovering warrior was gone. 

Atlas was gone.

 At my school, we have chickens. My Agriculture class had this beautiful, powerful, healthy golden rooster in the chicken coop. The next day? Cockfighters. Oh, how do I want to strangle those damn cockfighters. They stole him to fight. Despite being muscular and healthy, the rooster probably didn't make it if he's already been used in a fight. The disgusting, so-called 'illegal' (where I live, it's supposed to be illegal, but there aren't any consequences for doing it. Gee, great job preventing animal abuse) sport just makes my stomach churn. The worst part? Students in classes will openly talk and brag about cockfighting. No one does or says a thing about it. We're thinking that it was someone in the school that did it, and we're trying to track them down, but it's hard to when SO MANY PEOPLE will openly chat about it. I can't express how furious I am that cockfighting and abuse is just being treated like a sport. Animal abusers disgust me beyond human expression.

Watchers, what do you think I should post more of?

-General art

-Doesn't matter

-Other (tell me in the comments!)

In other words, on a scale of one to eleventeen, how annoyed are you at my frequency of posting my fursona?
