Okay, so I know this is kind of "old news" by now, but it really shouldn't be! :) (Plus I was lazy and went offline like a hermit for a couple days...)

If you guys haven't already heard, (or if you just want an excuse to make a bunch of noise or eat more rainbow cupcakes or something) Proposition 8, as well as the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) were both struck down on Wednesday!! :D This is a pretty freaking historic step towards marriage equality, as well as gay rights being recognized as civil rights in general in our country. Californians can now marry whoever the heck they want to marry, and already-married couples will be recognized as such across the country. It's still a little baffling to me that we at this point NEED the legal affirmation that denying federal benefits to same-sex couples (or anyone, really) is unconstitutional, but I think it's not just a great victory in the gay rights movement, but also a great sign that times and opinions are changing for the better. Despite the obvious legal and social challenges still yet to face, it's very encouraging to think of where the United States stood on the issue just ten years ago as opposed to today. All we can hope and pray and fight for is that despite history repeating itself again and again, maybe we can learn something from the re-occurrence of the issue of basic civil rights having to be fought for through the ages. I wish more people would draw a parallel between those who now argue their right to deny others is a matter of God or a matter of family or simply a matter of what they deem to be "normal," and those who argued the exact same statments during the '50s and '60s against American citizens, solely based on the color of their skin. I think this issue is so incredibly simple, but maybe it's because I believe with total conviction that no one should want to deny ANYONE the right to do ANYTHING unless it involves hurting someone. Anyway. I could obviously go off on this tangent all day, so I'm just going to send out my love and support to everyone, black and white and gay and straight and everywhere in between, who is willing to stand up and advocate for the rights of others. :clap: Stay strong, my friends!

 

SPEAKING of standing up and advocating...

I guess while I'm at it, I can't really post a journal rant about historic events and great people without mentioning incredible Wendy Davis. Again, since I'm posting all this like three days after it already went down, I'm expecting you guys have already heard all about the bill that was almost passed in Texas on Wednesday that would have essentially banned abortion after the 20-week period, including cases of rape, incest, and risk to the mother. Additionally, the bill would have closed almost every abortion clinic in Texas, forcing some women to drive hundreds of miles for the procedure. Despite my own views on the sanctity of life as a whole, I'm generally very sensitive to both sides of the issue, seeing as it deals with not just the life of the developing child, but the life of the mother, as well as the future of the child to come. I am pro-choice up until the stage of development when the developing child's nervous system is advanced enough to where it is capable of experiencing pain, because I think the issue is over-simplified oftentimes by those who deem it immoral in every instance. HOWEVER. The point is that this radical bill that would have taken away the choice of women who weren't presented a choice at the time of conception, as well as potentially forcing women to take some pretty unsafe measures with healthcare unavailable to them. But even though they barely beat the midnight deadline and the bill was stamped down on somewhat of a technicality, I have so much respect for the over 400 protesters who dedicated those unrelenting hours to advocating for women's rights. Wendy Davis, in particular, (a teen mom herself before graduating Harvard Law School) is a hero. I read that before taking on this bill, she'd previously staged a separate filibuster against Gov. Rick Perry in order to prevent a $5 billion tax cut to public schools. And now she stands talking for 13 hours straight without peeing or eating or drinking anything? Seriously?? You've gotta admit that's incredible.

 

Okay, I really need to go to bed because journal rants at 1:45 am are probably not the best idea for me. But anyway. :P I'll try to get back on tomorrow or Sunday and finally answer my messages and thank for all the faves and new watchers that I haven't really acknowledged yet and talk to my old friends on here because I MISS YOU GUYS. Also, I have a lot of art and poetry and stuff that's kind of been piling up, so expect me dumping things on you at some point here.

Love,

Veggie

Wow, have you guys noticed how all my journals end up being a re-introduction to society after a period of anti-social monastic activity?

I miss you guys. That's an understatement. But I've said it so many times in journals before, so you probably know the drill, but since it's finally summer and I'm free of the harsh chains of homework and responsibility, I'll definitely be pm-ing a few of you. ;w; Seriously, there aren't even words for how much I've missed you guys and your art and those wonderful little plz icons. :iconlachoirplz: But hopefully you know that.

I'll leave this journal sparse since tomorrow's will probably either be a celebratory or disappointed rant about the results of our lovely Supreme Court's ruling on the Prop. 8/DOMA case- *crosses fingers*

So...well, anyway. I can't wait to get back on and see everyone's fabulous art and read everyone's fabulous writings and talk to so many fabulous people. :heart:

Love you guys!

Wow, long time no see! I really am sorry for disappearing again. I think for the next two months I'm definitely not going to be able to keep up with messages and such with all my friends here, mainly because I'll be studying for my AP exams and finals and crap. =___=" At least it's spring break now, though, so I plan on catching up with you guys at least a little bit. ;w; How's life? I hope everything's going okay for you guys...

The reason I'm writing this is actually because I finally, FINALLY finished my Hunger Games cmv. It's definitely not perfect, but between school and life, it took a really long time to edit and film, so I'm pretty proud of it. It's sort of a relief just to get it out there and finished after all this time. x'D Not a ton of my friends involved with the project are on dA, but to the few of you who are, thank you so, SO much for everything. Seriously. I feel really lucky I got to work with you guys on this, because it was so much more fun making it with the people I love the most. Demyx, you were so helpful and made Peeta look like he was in a sick street fight, and China, you were the most adorable Rue I could have hoped for. I hope I can kidnap your beautiful faces again for my movies?? ;w;

Also, a ginormous thank you to all my dA watchers and friends who encouraged me along the way and put up with the craploads of cosplay spam. There's actually more of it to come, so hopefully you don't want to jab needles into my eyes by now. ^^" Eheh. I would really appreciate if you took a moment to check out the actual video and maybe leave some constructive criticism. If you like it, I'd appreaciate the likes/faves/subscriptions/maybe sharing it with some people(?), because I'll be making more Hunger Games stuff this summer, actually. ;)

Ugh, I wanted to apologize for not getting to get back in touch with my dA friends as much as I wanted because my mom was working a lot on our non-crappy computer. *HEADDESK* I'll be really insanely busy this month with band stuffs and AP homework, but I'm still going to try to be on deviantart more, especially when things hopefully slow down a bit next month. Also...My Hunger Games video! :3 VERY close. THE END IS NEAR, MY FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh, I feel awful. As always. I'm not going to end up on one of those pathetic rants where I apologize for disappearing for farrrr too long from this site, but I still want my friends and watchers to know how much you guys mean to me. I've really been thinking about so many people on here lately, and now that I'm finally out of school for a bit, I wanted to wish you guys all the best over the holiday season (and always) and let you know that if you're reading this right now, you're probably on my mind. :) If you guys know me well, you know I'm not exactly one of those internet-social-butterfly people, but this site is so close to my heart. Whenever I get sucked into the all-consuming schoolyear, I miss the continuing talent and support I find here. It's honestly sort of life affirming. Ever since I entered this community, I've really found nothing but appreciation and support for not just my art and writings, but for me as a person. I just wanted to say thanks for that... :) This goes tenfold, obviously, for my IRL friends that I actually see (or maybe not so much) on a regular basis. I hope it never seems like I don't actually have time for you. You're always in my "beating muscle of myocardium..." Recognize that one, Dakota and Salina? ;) Hint: Boasts in English class, mwahaha... >.)

I'm really going to try to get back to my crap pile of messages over break, so please be patient, but if you want to try to contact me for a bit and chat, this week is definitely the time! :3 I also have a lot of art and writing I'd like to post here now that I have a bit of time, including some more stuff related to my OC, paintings, a bit of fan art, depressing poetry, and...*Drumroll please*...MY HUNGER GAMES VIDEO!!! Ohgod, I really hope I finish editing it over winter break. Dammit, I'm so close...So anyway, watch for that if you're anywhere near interested.

Finally, I wanted to congratulate my friend, :iconblackcatmisfortunate:, on PUBLISHING HER FIRST BOOK!!! Ashe, I just got your email because I'm a lazy piece of crap, but I want you to know that I'm sooooo freaking proud of you. ;w; I'm sorry I couldn't get it in time for Christmas, but I'm so buying it. As soon as I possibly can. All of you guys should get it as well, because she's an excellent writer. It's very fairly priced and if you're interested in a psychological thriller based on a classic...(wow, I sound like a used car salesman) THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. Seriously. ALiCE. Buy it.

Hi guys. <3 God, I miss my dA buddies. As usual. -_-" I know I told you guys I'd be more active here again, but I'm having so much difficulty still getting back on track because school started up about a month ago and I'm taking some really intense classes this year. I'm sorry this is so brief and I might not be able to really chat with my friends on here for a while, but I wanted to let you guys know I'm still thinking about you, and still really grateful that you're interested in my art or my company after all this time.

I just posted some emotional brain sludge, (aka "poetry")  since I think I remember a few of my friends on here requesting I write more of it, and the thing just sort of tumbled out anyway. (See "Peter Pan" for most recent emotional brain sludge lol) I really hope even if I don't have as much time this next week or so to chat a lot, that I will keep posting and staying active on here. I'll probably upload some more of my gamemaker OC stuff, as well, so keep an eye out for that if you'd be interested. :)

I love you guys so much. ;__; </3 I really hope everything's going alright for you. School starting up for y'all, yet? Anything important going on in anyone's life?

Hufflehugs and mockingluvs to all!! :iconhufflepuffplz: :iconmockingjayplz: :iconbigheartplz:

- Your crazy vegetarian (vegan? :D )
First of all, friend me! :D I'm BatWormwood10301.

Thank you so much, :iconblackcatmisfortunate: for letting me know. FINALLY, Pottermore. It's ironic, because I was checking for about 6 months during beta testing to see if I was somehow magically accepted early, but...alas.

So. Just got my pottermore account last night, and I basically did all of The Sorcerer's Stone, which I think is to..chapter 7? I dunno. It's where you get sorted. So...alsdkjflaks;jdf God, this is so exciting. I seriously love getting to hear Jo's little comments on her writing process, and...:heart:
So amazing.

So, all was going well. I love my wand. It's a 12 1/4 inch, ebony wood with unicorn hair, supple. I'm psyched.
The description of ebony used as a wand wood:

Ebony
This jet-black wand wood has an impressive appearance and reputation, being highly suited to all manner of combative magic, and to Transfiguration. Ebony is happiest in the hand of those with the courage to be themselves. Frequently non-conformist, highly individual or comfortable with the status of outsider, ebony wand owners have been found both among the ranks of the Order of the Phoenix and among the Death Eaters. In my experience the ebony wand's perfect match is one who will hold fast to his or her beliefs, no matter what the external pressure, and will not be swayed lightly from their purpose.

I mean, sounds like me, right? And unicorn hair being a loyal core, and one of the easier ones to master, I was totally fine with that.

Also, I spent about half an hour toiling over which pet I wanted. I really, really love owls, and they are so unique as pets, so I was thinking over the owls, but then the adorable little harlequin toad caught me eye. (Yes, I seriously love the concept of owning a toad. I don't care if you think they're lame. Neville and I can just chill with our little toads and you can suck it.) So, of course, I randomly decided to buy the black cat. lol. I have this obsession with black cats, so that's where that comes from...Anyway.

So, sorting time comes along. I guess maybe I sort of saw it coming, but...I don't know. I'm having such an identity crisis. I usually get varying results when taking sorting hat quizzes, but I'd say about 85% of the time, I end up in Ravenclaw..? Though, I've been the other three many times. Though, admittedly...When I got sorted as HUFFLEPUFF, I sort of thought I was going to cry. I literally curled up on the desk and just sat there sulking for a good ten minutes. Just..."NO. This can't be happening..." T^T These two comics by a very talented dA artist summed up my feelings exactly:

fav.me/d4x0tl2
fav.me/d4x3hvu

But then I thought about it, and...you know. I think I'll warm up to being a Puff. I mean, I'm seriously the cheerful little outdoorsy freak kid who marches to the tune of the wrong drummer, so it actually fits perfectly. xDDD If I attended hogwarts, the first classes I'd be signing up for would be Care of Mythical Creatures and Herbology. And if you think about the sorting hat's song:
"You might belong in hufflepuff where they are just and loyal. Those patient hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil."

Maybe..? That sounds about right, huh? Hufflepuff is a pretty underrated house. I mean, Cedric Diggory, Nymphadora Tonks, AND J.K. herself are all puffs, so...Come on. We're not THAT lame. ;) *sigh* I'm just competitive, and...I DON'T WANT TO LOSE AT EVERYTHING!! T^T

So, I'm going to become the freaking greatest Quidditch captain Hogwarts has ever seen, graduate top of my Herbology class, and make sure we win that damned house cup, just to prove all the Hufflehaters wrong.

I'mma go raise me some mandrakes, yo.

Oh god, I missed you guys so much...T^T It seems I've written about three-in-a-row of these annoying apologetic journal entries in which I disappear for a vast period of time, and then return and cry to all my wonderful friends on here and beg forgiveness...:*iconcryforeverplz:
So instead of rambling on and on, I think I'll just sum it up and say that this schoolyear was crazy and stupid, and this summer has just gone by way too fast.
So, once again. Very, very sorry for not talking to so many of you guys for so long. I've been in this sort of mood where I needed to withdraw for a while, but I feel like I'm sort of returning to "myself," after some time to think about things. ^_^

Please don't take it personally if I don't respond to old messages for a while, because honestly, my inbox scares me right now. I'll probably just start slowly re-introducing myself to society, and take it from there...
God, how are you guys? I miss you...
Please tell me about your lives! xD I've been thinking about a lot of my IRL friends, and my deviantart buddies for the past several months, so I just wanted to say hi. <3 Again, sorry if it takes me a while to get back to you, but if you'd like to talk to me, please send me a message or something. ;w;

I'll be posting more art soon, as well as maybe introducing you to one of my OCs, who has recently been consuming a massive chunk of my life. :D Also...To those of my followers still interested in my Hunger Games CMV, I apologize for being so late on finishing. I still have to edit footage to about 40 seconds of the song, and I have to add some finishing touches, but we're TOTALLY done with filming, and I'm very excited. It should be posted in about a month, I think..? In the meantime, I have some more cosplay photos to post, including our epic Peeta/Katniss leg fixing scene. (<--In the snow! C: )

Anyway, I love all my friends! :heart: I hope to hear from you guys soon.

Heyyyyy everyone…>.<" This journal is really boring and long, and is probably going to look rather similar to the previous one I posted here, so bear with me. I'm really, really sorry (once again) to all of my friends and watchers, because I haven't been on here is a really long time, and still have hundreds of messages sitting in my inbox not replied to. We are plagued once again with the woes of computer troubles, (5 viruses in one week!) so I'm very sorry, but I won't be able to be active on DA for a while. AGAIN. I'm pretty sure DA or one of two other sites is the source of the problem, so I'm being very careful, and avoiding them to a pretty dramatic extent. (I'm actually typing this in Microsoft word, and I'm going to run on DA really fast later, so I can post it, then quickly run away.) I'll still be posting artwork, writing, and some periodic updates on my Hunger Games project, (as well as the cosplay pictures) but please bear with me, as I'll probably avoid things that keep me on DA awhile, like chatting. Which makes me VERY sad, because I miss everyone so much!  :iconcryforeverplz: Mom's thinking some updates to our computer should help it hunt the bugs faster, so hopefully that will work. I'll definitely try to be on here as much as possible, but I wanted to warn people about my inactivity.

But please don't think I care about you guys any less! I've actually been thinking about my friends (even my online and chatting buddies) a ton. Actually, more than I have in a while. I really hope it doesn't seem like I don't appreciate each and every one of you, because all of you make my life worth living. Honestly. I don't know what I'd do without all the support and love from all of my in-person friends, as well as my watchers, who always have a kind, supportive thing to say. These past several years have been kind of surreal and awkward in many ways, and there have been a lot of times when I've had this natural sort of urge to just…bury myself? I mean, revert inwards, sort of, and just not come out.  I can feel so lonely and useless without even knowing why, haha! But YOU keep me sane. (Somewhat?) All of you. And if you don't think I'm thinking about you as individuals every day, or at least once In a while, you are probably horribly, horribly mistaken. I need to do better about finding time to show people that. Because I live for this world, as well as for the wonderful people I am blessed to be surrounded by. Every e-mail, call, comment, fave, brief hello…brightens my day. It's so special to me! So I'm really sorry if I ever don't seem appreciative, or if I seem to be forgetting you, because chances are, you keep me ticking. I'm thinking about maybe setting up a 1CrazyVegetarian e-mail address, or starting an account on another website for a while, because I really miss talking to everyone. I also might set up a blog or a facebook dedicated solely to my Hunger Games project, so I'll let you know if/when that gets set up. So, whatever happens, I'll try to be back as soon as possible, and I promise when our virus issues are fixed and I find the time again to reply to EVERY message I humanly can. Also, I really need to thank the watchers I've gained for my HG vid. I haven't yet, because of the computer issues, but keep in mind that I'm very grateful, and I owe you gratitude and a llama. :3

Once, again, I'm really sorry to everyone. I will catch up eventually, though, I'm sure. I love you all so much! ;w; Still feel free to write and comment if you feel like it, as I'll get around to replies eventually, but in the meantime, I miss and love all of you. <3

Happy New Year, and may the odds be EVER in your favor. ;P

Hulloooooo everyone!! I feel kind of bad replacing my old journal entry because I think it touched on an important issue. :(  So if you haven't read it yet, please go HERE first:
1crazyvegetarian.deviantart.co…

I'm just posting a journal, because…well, I haven't in a really long time, and I wanted to apologize to everyone for being so inactive here lately!  I've had the Hell month at school with finals, and such, and I seriously can't even believe it's almost Christmas time! ;A; STUPID SCHOOL YOU RUIN MY LIFE a;sldkjfa;slkdjf!!!!!!! I'm sooooo glad finals are over. I don't even want to think about school right now. In fact, let's not. Also, I've been off the computer for three days, because we got another virus. =.=" The bottom line is, I've been incredibly lazy with replies, and I'm guessing a lot of people have forgotten about my existence, heheh, but I wanted to let my friends know that I haven't forgotten theirs. ;w; To those of my buddies who are still waiting on replies from me, pleaaaase don't give up on me! >.<" I promise I will reply as soon as my little frozen fingers can type. *determined face*

How's everyone's holiday season? It hasn't really felt much like Christmas with school and such, but it's snowing right now, so that's a start! :3 I really hope everyone's been well, and that we can all enjoy the holiday season (and a little break from the incessant torture, to those still in school.)

What's everyone been up to lately? I'm definitely hoping the weather will be decent enough to continue shooting on my Hunger Games project over break, because my personal project is due in LESS THAN TWO MONTHS. T^T And I still have to edit. And shoot more than half the footage I need. =.=" I've pretty much got all of the Rue/Katniss scenes done including their time in the arena together and the death scene, which is good because those scenes are really important. My mom and I also drug Peeta out to Ute Valley yesterday and started filming with him. I'll post some pics eventually, but most of them are us being silly. x'D He was a real sport, actually. I think we shot the berries scene at least 15 times, and I still need it from about 5 more angles, but we ran out of camera battery.  :/ That's become a real problem. Also, I'm hoping filming won't get too unbearably awkward for him later on. We shot some pretty easy scenes yesterday in terms of "intimacy" (eating and committing suicide) and we still ended up looking a bit awkward on camera, heheh. ^^" I still have yet to film more Peeta scenes, and scenes with Clove, Prim, Gale, and…me running, climbing, and making dramatic faces. :P Soooo much work. :faint: Anyway, I might make a trailer-type-thing for the movie just to show you guys what I've been up to. AFTER I master Sony Vegas, that is. ^^"

Since I'm sleepy and don't have too much else to say right now…Here's a  meme thingy I've been promising to do for several people from a time span ranging from two weeks to…about 3 or 4 months I believe..? ^^" So here you go … (This one might take me a while to respond to, since I'll be responding to hundreds of messages I've been gradually ignoring out of laziness XD)

Wow. I like to consider myself an optimist, but there are times when it's impossible for me not to completely lose faith in humanity. There have been so many horrific events in our world's history, but as was the pattern with the Holocaust, human slavery, and the current struggle for GLBT rights, people continually seem to miss the truth that suffering and sentience extend far beyond just a single race, gender, orientation, or SPECIES. It is a scientifically proven fact that animals suffer entirely the same pain that humans suffer, and yet incessant cruelty to animals is an all-too-common occurrance in our society. And by "animals," I don't just mean dogs and cats and fluffy bunnies. Factory farm animals endure endless suffering everyday all across the world, and particualrly North America, but subliminal media messages constantly sent from the greedy executives of the Factory Farming industry have hardened our hearts to the pain inflicted on the billions of victims of the farming industry every single day. Because of the commonly accepted idea that farm animals "graze happily all day on open pastures," (You've seen those ads, right?) there seems to be a huge disconnect between the slab of flesh behind the glass counter at the supermarket, and the living, breathing being that has suffered immensely WITHOUT PAINKILLERS <------(seriously) to provide the bacon, ribeye, or McNuggets on your dinner plate.

The reason I'm writing all this was I just saw one of the most sickening undercover investigations I've ever viewed about a factory pig farm in a state I just had a lovely family vacation in with my mom. Please keep an open mind and view this truthful and shocking video with real hidden footage from Iowa Select Farms, one of the largest pork suppliers to supermarkets across the country: blog.peta2.com/2011/06/no-wond…

That's the footage the rich fat cats at the head of the company certainly don't want you to see. They don't want to "offend" you and lose your precious business. Apparently bashing baby piglets skulls in and ripping out their testicles without pain meds is totally worth those pretty pennies. Greed at it's worst, huh? :(
BUT everyone really CAN make a difference. Seriously. Just talking about it is one thing, but to end this brutal industry, action really is the key. Just by going vegetarian, a person literally saves HUNDREDS of lives a year. Please keep an open mind to vegetarianism, or write a letter to "Iowa Select Farms" demanding higher welfare standards for their animals, and let them know you won't be giving them the business until they can show some REAL proof they aren't mutilating innocent animals without pain medication. Finally, please spread the word. Forwarding this to as many people as possible will help end the machine of cruelty generated by the greedy food industry.

Pain is universal, extending far beyond the human species. But so is love. :heart: Please keep that in mind the next time you make your meal choice.

Hai there! <3 I just wanted to let you guys know that I'll be out of commission for about a week, because we're visiting our relatives out of state, and apparently, computers don't exist in Iowa. *sarcasm?* Anyway, I'll be dragging my camera everywhere (as usual) so I'll try to take some good pics! :D If I don't talk to you before I have to leave the house at 3:30 in the morning on Thursday (which obviously SUCKS) , it's not becuase I don't like you, it's because I'm probably stuffing my face, cuz' that's always what seems to happen when we go there. 0.o I looooooooove you all! <3 <3 <3
