Hey guys.I'm still here.
Just kinda going through a rough patch.
I'm okay right now but it's hard to keep up with all the websites and life and everything.
I guess I keep putting off updating you guys.
I'm not sure why, but I do.
I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm okay and still here, just absent.
I don't know what to fucking do anymore.I seriously don't know what to do.
Right now my life consists of:
me having major breakdowns
me panicing about my psychiatrist appointment tomorrow
me feeling or wanting to feel numb
important people in my life wanting to die
I'm trying to get over this, I really really am. I'm just so worried about everything. My friends, my family. I'm worried I'm depressed, I'm worried that I'll need meds. I'm worried I'm suicidal, I'm extremely worried about the people in my life who are suicidal. I'm so worried. I just want to stop worrying about everything. I just want to stop.
I love you all.I swear I'm the only teenager I know with unmarked, clean & scarless wrists.
And that absolutely kills me.
I'M SO HOMESICK FOR THIS WEBSITE. AND EVERY MOTHERTRUCKER ON HERE.
I just wrote a journal and now I'm writing another one but I was looking at my past journal entries and I realized why I love this website. When I need support you guys are there, which is lovely. I love the community on here! I love having people who I know will be there. I'm really sorry I disappeared. Please still love me! Do I still have friends on here?!
Anywaffle. The point of this journal entry was to update you guys on things that happened in my life since I've been gone.
1. Concert. I told you guys about it happening but never went into detail. I loved it. But then again I love concerts. They put me at ease and make me feel calm. Which sounds weird.
2.I turned 18... Yeah let's skip that one...
3. I'm going to the doctor's because my anxiety is getting worse. I'm terrified of doctors.
4. My insomnia is getting worse (she writes at 8am , having not slept yet)
5. I've had countless break downs.
6. I've become
I didn't die!!!So, I'm still alive.
I didn't die.
I feel so bad for neglecting you all.
Sorry I'm never on here anymore...
I'm sure I'll start coming back regularly soon.
I'm just on one of my kicks where I stop using dA for a while.
I have Tumblr & Twitter if you want to keep up with me...
Not that any of you will...
Anyways you can follow me on Tumblr. missmusicmartina.tumblr.com
And on Twitta Martina_Chaos...
I miss my friends on here!
Come be my tumblr friends!
I don't have many!
I'm constantly on there!
I'm also constantly on Polyvore so if you have an account come chat with me!!!
THIS IS THE CUTEST EFFING PENCILasdfghjkl;
I am so pumped!
I'm gonna go see Faber Drive & Fighting for Ithaca
and Victoria Duffield and Kreesha Turner and Courage My Love.
But I'm most pumped for FFI & Faber Drive!
What does everybody want for Christmas?!
If you don't celebrate Christmas, what are you doing for the holidays?!
SO MANY HAPPYS!
I'm jamming to Christmas songs!
MERRY CHRISTMAS KISS MY ASSSS!
Only 19 days till my concert!
Then 23 days till XMas!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, I COULD CARE LESS.
Have a happy holiday season, if I'm not back before then!
Wisdom Teeth :/I got all four of my wisdom teeth out today.
I was disappointed because after all the hilarious videos I've seen of the way people act when they get their wisdom teeth out.
For the first hour or so I was giggley and smilely and wouldn't stop talking but I felt pretty much sober just a bit woozy, wobbly and hyper, oddly enough...
Anywhoodle I just wanted to let you all know I survived!!!
I'm anxious to see how swollen I get and if I get bruising.
Overall, totally not worth me freaking out!
Although I really miss food! I'm on a soup, noodles, jello and pudding diet as of now. :/
Not exactly gourmet but can't complain.
Protect yourself against fraudAlthough, as an active member of the community, it's nearly impossible to have missed this huge issue, I think it's very important to warn people for this.
What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables
To understand where all of this comes from, it's first of all important to know what a PayPal chargeback actually is.
This video offers a proper explanation of what chargeback is, and what it should

Art and not giving upDear, deviantart fellow artists
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us.
But we have to stay strong and continue.
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;

Art / Story / Comic Contest!
Ok, its time for an another contest. It have been some months since the last one, and im sorry for that, that goes to all my followers. Hopefully will I get more active again now. I did think for a long time for the theme for this contest, and I wanted something that's not used to much, but at the same time something everyone can use as an idea for their entry. I hope everyone like it. Its always hard to make a prize list to, that everyone is happy with. Some smaller prizes, and more winners, or a bigger prize, but less winners. Some people thinks "... why should I, I gonna lose anyway.. But wait, as much as 10 entries wins a prize, maybe i should join after all!," and others think "... Only 20$, no

Glitch's Clothing Design Contest (USD Prizes) Introduction
It was nearing time for the new term to begin, and as always, Glitch wanted to change his outfit...
After all, that one got a little wrecked in the tournament. Oops.
And why not? He would be earning his degree in Elementalism the next term, and who wouldn't want to look absolutely STUNNING for graduation? Surely not him, as looking into obtaining interesting clothing for graduation was a high priority.
This is a drawing contest where you design a new outfit for Glitch, the elementalism student teacher of :iconotherworlde:! He tends to change his outfit often and he's looking for a couple new ones to add to his closet. Therefore, your task -- if you choose to accept it -- is to design a new outfit for Glitch to proudly wear in the next term, when he plans to earn his academy degree.
Simply draw Glitch in an outfit of your design and you
The Reckless and The Brave<3:iconeeeeeplz:
Long live the reckless and the brave
I don't think I wanna be saved
My song has not been sung
So long live us
Looking out at a town called Suburbia
Everybody's just fighting to fit in
Little rats running mazes, having babies
It's a vicious little world that we live in
Looking back at life on the other side
I realize that I didn't fit in
Didn't hate it
But I didn't quite relate it
To my precious little world
So long live the reckless and the brave
I don't think I want to be saved
My song has not been sung
And long live the fast times
So come what may
I don't think I'll ever be saved
Our song has not been sung
Long live us
Breaking out of a town called Suburbia
I remember everyone always saying
"Little brat must be crazy
Never make it in our vicious little world"
Still I'm leaving
Got a van, got a chance, got my dignity
Got a dream, got a spark, got somewhere to be
I'll take a breath, say goodbye
To their precious little world
(Say goodbye to me!)
So long live the reckless
