こんにち は! ともだち に なりましょう!
Hey friends! I am Ponyo. Feel free to check out my world and catch up with what's been going on with me lately! I rarely post, so I'm sorry about that(School, I tell you.)

I don't really draw quite so much anymore, so if you're looking for innovative artwork, I'm not the best one to check out for that anymore : ( Sorry to disappoint. But feel free to check out some of my old stuff! If you'd like to see something I've done recently, leave me a comment and maybe I'll be motivated to add something, haha.

I'm an OCCASIONAL guest poster on Offbeat Mama(despite not being a Mom-SKILLS), so check me out there, too! If you ask, I can give you my name on there, and link you to a post.

Feel free to comment and talk to me! I love making new friends. そして, 日本ご を はなします から, いっしょう に はなしましょう ね!

What Happened to Common Sense?

Dear Friend I Rarely See,
No, I'm totally not offended that you just ended a Facebook conversation with me so you could go and watch TV.
Sincerely, Are You Kidding Me?
....Like, is this okay now? Apparently it's completely acceptable to be like, Sorry, I can't talk to you, despite the fact I haven't spoken to you in at least a month and continually nag you to get together. I need to go watch Star Trek on Netflix, which I can watch ANY TIME I WANT TO. BECAUSE IT'S INSTANT. So bye." What kind of day and age are we living in? I don't just say to my friends, "My bad, guys. I have a ton of 'Malcolm in the Middle' episodes burning a hole in my DVR, so we'll do the mall next week." What in the world? Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but really, what happened to, "I know you have things to do, but it was nice to talk to you"? Or "I have some things to do, so I'll see you later"?

....Of course, I'm overreacting. But seriously, don't end conversations with people because there's a rerun of The Brady Bunch on. That's not okay.


Hey, all! So, I updated my world intro in hopes to make it more truthful and accurate with regard to recent events. I'm pretty sure I had written the last one Freshman year of high school. XD So it was a bit outdated. Enjoy!

We're All in This Together


I woke up and stretched my arms. It was still during the day, so I supposed everyone was napping. Then I looked at my surroundings. The events of the morning came rushing back. KEEFER. They took my Keefer. What on earth was I supposed to do?! Tears spilled down my cheeks.
"Um..are you okay?"
OH my gracious, someone's awake. It was Violette, the cute redhead who was obsessed with Griffin. Well, to each his(or her, in this case) own, as they say.

"NO!" I wailed. "Our babies were going to be beautiful AND talented!"

She blinked a few times before replying. "I beg your pardon?"
"They took my Keefer, and now I'm totally going to die lonely and SINGLE!"

"Ohh, yeah, that. They took my brother, so I feel your pain." she said, looking worried.

"Wait up.." I said, holding up my hand. "Maybe it's semi okay he's not here, I mean, other than the fact that he was stinking kidnapped, because I look DIS-GU-STING. I mean, my hair is all messed up, and my Chucks have grass stains, and OH MY GOODNESS, there's mud on my butt! Don't look!" I yelled incredulously, as she instinctively looked down.

"Sorry!" She squeaked. She sighed. "I just really hope we can find Locke" A lone tear trickled down her cheek.

"Don't cry! No need for that! It's all gonna be okay! We all need to stop crying, and-"

Violette interrupted. "But you were the one who stared crying."

"Hold that thought, darling, I'm in the zone here. Where was I..? Oh yeah. We need to get our butts in gear! If we all put our heads and talents together, we can save everyone! We can work this out, because we're all in this together! You know what I'm saying?"

She stared at me blankly.
"C'mon, 'We're All in This Together'? Nothing?"

She shook her head.
"My genius is wasted on you people."

"But I feel much better after hearing that. Thanks!" she smiled.

"No worried, Chickadee! I have faith in us, and I hope you do, too."

"Yup!" She grinned.

And people said watching those cheesy High School Musical movies was a waste of my time. Life lessons, I tell you. Hopefully these particular lessons are ones that play out in our favor.


..So yeah. Horrible movie references for the win! High School Musical 2 was on the other day, and I turned it on and realized I knew all the words to the song they were singing. NO SHAME. Well..maybe a little bit of shame. That was the stuff when I was younger, guys. No kidding.

Sorry for the shortness and lack of events, I have some serious homework to do 0.o

Please let me know what you thought of it! And tell me if I got your character correct : ) Thanks!
