Where's the Bears...? + Spirit

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 17, 2012, 2:26 AM

Spirit Day


:meow: Minnie is wearing a purple bow today. You'd all be blind not to notice that purple banner on the top of your screen.  It's Spirit Day. This is a day close to my heart. As a teen, I dropped out of high school due to bullying. Due to bullying, I ended up ill in the hospital from stress. I was beaten up and spit on. I sat at lunch alone for years. Why? Because I dressed differently? I didn't want to be in the cliques? Because I was friends with the other kids everyone picked on and refused to do the same?  To this day I don't 100% know.

And the sad thing? I had to see my daughter go through the same things, years later--at the hands of both kids and teachers. Thankfully I had options to remove her from that.

I believe that NO ONE should be bullied. Certainly not for sexual orientation, the way they dress, their beliefs, whatever.  Let's stand up and stop this.  20 years ago, I certainly wish someone was there to stand up for me.  Let's be there for them now.

What's New


:aww: Getting rid of yesterday's journal.  I'm still blue, but want to be positive. So...

:giggle: I found this recently (actually found it a long while ago and forgot about it, then re-found it recently). Really gave me a good laugh.  So, for all of you who are convinced I'm a troll...you're right. lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Mirz

:noes: Still behind on messages!  This weekend, for sure!  And my new Spotlight article will be up today.

And since this is just too cute, I had to share. Thanks to marcphx and stuck-in-suburbia for making it known to me!


Arts 4 Me



:bulletred: A big shout-out and thank-you to marcphx for my recent avatar.  Minnie never looked so cute and happy.

:bulletorange: Know-Kname made this adorable chibi of my Dark Flame. Isn't she cute?

Commission: Dark Flame Tooned by Know-Kname

:bulletred: Well worth the wait! I ordered a few commissions from Gwendolyn12 a while back (I've featured the others in my journal before).  I just got the last one and it's simply lovely. The mixed media is so much fun and the picture is gorgeous.

Commission.: Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill) by Gwendolyn12

:bulletorange: A huge thank-you to Endorell-Taelos for this lovely gift.  I have been wanting a portrait from the amazing SerenaVerdeArt but couldn't afford one. Endorell was lovely enough to get me one as a present. This is my Sara (yes, much older) as she appears in the upcoming sequel to the cross-over When Worlds Collide.

what does the color purple have to do with "Spirit day"? :?

It's just the color they chose. Probably for being "black and blue" from beatings. :saddummy:

Bullying is one of the most disgusting things people do to each other though. I was never bullied, but I think I can imagine how incredibly depressing and saddening it must feel to be. I'm sorry you had to go through things like that. :heart: :tighthug:

Bullies suck. I was bullied too, and wish someone had been there for me. I need to find something purple today too.

I'm sorry to hear that you and your daughter were badly bullied :( I used to get taunted every single day for a lot of my high school - and college (in the UK we do 2 years of college, then 3 - 4 of uni) life because I didn't look like a stereotypical girl, so they'd make fun of me and loudly make fun of how they didn't know my gender. It's awful. It's great that you were able to remove your daughter from a bullying situation and I hope all is better now. :)

Still, I thought of the Nadezhda picture of Sara as the Knighting ceremony portrait. :giggle: But no worries. I am so glad you love it. :la:

:iconmirz-alt:

I know. But she really looks much older in the pic and it doesn't seems to work well for the knighting. Though, perhaps that is the same dress and she wears it again when she returns to Loreithia (spoiler). Either way, it's beautiful and I thank you again...
...and have a repayment in the works.

o_____o repayment? You don't have to! :love: I hope you feel less blue soon as well!
