"Come what may I won't abandon you, won't leave you behind.
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a moment.
Come what may I will be standing right here by your side;
I wont run away, though the storm's getting worse and there's no end in sight.
And storms will surely come,
But true love is a choice you must make
And you're the one
that I have set my heart to choose.
As long as I live, I swear I'll see this through."
-Thrice, The Weight [link]
(from their newest and leaked CD that's suppose to be out in October.)
I'm so in love with this song right now. It's been a while since I've had a song that I listen to over and over and over.
I think it's such an honest song about love. And the fight.

Speaking of Love - the contest is moving along. Only a few more days to sign up! Starting August first to the thirty-first - Love yourself! <3
I'm completely in awe of the response this has gotten. As of right now there are 41 participants - which I'm completely ecstatic about. I think that's around the right number because I'm not really sure how many prizes I can handle. I've started on a few but only finished two.
Even more exciting than the 41 who've signed up to give this a shot are these amazing people who've offered to help with making prizes:
Then there are the amazing people who've been using clubs, journals and even their own blogs outside of DA to spread the word.
I've started a folder under my favorites for the prizes. So if you'd like to take a look, here they are so far - [link]

Let's see... what else - Oh!
Harmless - I'm going to entering a few things for this: [link]
(It's a non-profit in the UK that's going to be publishing a book about SI and they are looking for submissions of art, literature, photography, ect.)
I'll most likely send in Lace because it's the only piece I think I have the deals with self injury that's not in my sketchbook. Wow. Just realized that. That's kind of a big deal for me.
I know it's kind of late. The deadline is in two days, but some of you already have BRILLIANT work that fits the topic- enter it! What's there to lose?

To all the participants in the Love Yourself for Art contest - I wish you the best of luck. If you need anything- note me and I'll respond as soon as I'm able.
<3 Be well.
