Hi! My name is K.D., although most online know me as misachan83. I'm 32, and am an author and anime lover. Welcome to the shadows of my creative and sometimes odd mind

Life in general I guess

Wow, it's been a while since I've really posted on here. I guess you could say that life's been in the way a lot lately, although I've tried staying active with the things I like to do. It's been rough though. My husband and son were sick for a few days with the stomach flu recently, not to mention I've been suffering more from a major depressive episode. It's been hard to get by, but I'm somehow still managing (and keeping my head just above water).

Anyway, on a positive note, I made an FB page for my art and wallpapers recently with the same title as this world. If you're interested in checking it out, the link is here. I just wanted to do it for me. Not only is it another place to post my work (although I love having it here too), but I also want to use it to talk at times about my life with mental illness too. Don't know how well it will go, but I guess we'll see.

Anyway, hope everyone has had a good year so far. Hopefully I'll also be able to get out of my little funk and be more active with my own wallpapers and art here soon.

Happy New Year!

Just wanted to wish every one of my friends on the O a Happy New Year! Hope you all have a great night and great start to your year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Some cuteness for everybody :)

I just wanted to wish all of my friends here on the O a Happy Thanksgiving and start of the holidays! I hope you all have a wonderful day and be safe if you're traveling

A Little Life Talk

Yep, this is what I'm kind of like right now

Wow, it's been a while since I've entered anything into either of my worlds. But then, I've been busy with this and that, and really haven't sat down to write anything for them. So I thought I'd just talk a little bit and what not.

First off, a Happy Halloween to everybody (beings its coming up soon). Hope everybody has a good Halloween. This is always a busier time of year for me for transitions with different things in my life, although it's always marked with ups and downs in my moods too. I've just worked hard on staying stable with that, even though it does get hard. This year's been very rough too, and with all of the bad vibes even in my own family for elections and all, I've tried to steer clear of Facebook and even a lot of the news (I've learned throughout the years that politics and religion are terrible subjects for discussion anymore).

I've been trying to work on writing and making more things too, just to keep my mind busy. I've been more on wallpapers recently, but eventually I'll be able to sit down and draw more too. I'm kind of having issues with inspiration here and there though, and I've been curious about whether anyone would be interested in me doing requests for them to help with that. I always do like a challenge, especially with characters I haven't worked with before. I need to do a wallpaper for the "Make it Yourself" challenge, but I'm having a rough time with that. Self esteem mostly, believe it or not. I've got this silly worry that whatever I come up with just won't be up to par with that challenge for whatever reason.

Anyway, other than all that, things have been okay. Like I said, I've been busy, but I still manage to get on here and check out everybody's new work, then browse around the internet and all for whatever interests me. Hope you all have a fun holiday and stay warm with the cold weather that's starting to come!

Interesting Developments and Annoying Things

So it seems there's been a lot going on lately between the changes with the O and the art thieves. Honestly, I've been feeling a bit out of commission lately, although I've been trying hard to fight it. There's just been a lot going on right now in my personal life that I've been trying to keep to myself, and it's been eating me lately. But I thought it would be nice to talk about that stuff anyway, now that I can make myself (depression is just an awful demon at times).

All right, so first off, I do admit that when I first saw the changes to the O, it did concern me. A piece of me is still a bit concerned, but I'm also hoping that the coming changes will be positive for our little community. I really don't have many contacts other than here, but if you'd like my email just in case, I will send it to you in a message. I do have a DA account, but I really don't use it. I'm considering doing a little tiny website for my art and writing at this time, but I haven't gotten around to completely saying that I will.

On another note, I'm quite peeved at the art thieves that I've been seeing a lot of lately. I've been reporting the works, but they unfortunately haven't been able to be taken down yet. For those of you who have been following such things, you know the two that I'm talking about. One is spamming the fanart, and the other is now spamming the wallpapers big time (I reported two of her wallpapers over a month ago, but she's still at it and they still haven't been removed sadly). Let me just have my say about such a thing, as everyone else has. Art theft is low and very offensive. We as artists work very, very hard on what we make, and it's awful when someone steals something and so blatantly claims it. Most of us have experienced such things at one point or another, including myself, and as artists we don't tolerate it here and will report it when we see it. I doubt any of them will read this, but I wanted to say it.

All right, so now that I've gotten that out of the way, I also wanted to take a moment to tell everyone how much I enjoy being here. Everyone here has always been great friends, and I love seeing all of the different kinds of artwork that everyone does. No matter what, I intend to stick with the O, and hopefully it will be for years to come. You all are wonderful
