Forest Fantasy: Chapter 1, Part 3
The sound of the water drew closer to her. Amanda could not see the source yet, but she could hear the heavy splashing of falling water. Am I walking towards a waterfall? she wondered. There's no waterfalls near the campus. Just how far away am I?
She had decided to aim for the water when she began walking, knowing that water generally leads to civilization, but was this still the correct path to take? Then again, she was lost in the middle of a vast forest, larger than any forest she had ever seen. There wasn't any sign of a path to follow, so she would just have to take her best guess.
However, perhaps the forest itself could lead to some clues. She knew the general area around her college; it was an urban area in the middle of a large city. To get to an isolated location like this would have taken a lot of planning and a lot of time to execute. How long had she been out for? When she had awoken, the sun had been low in the sky, but now it was nearing the peak of its journey. She had

Forest Fantasy: Chapter 1, Part 2
As she journeyed through the vast forest, Amanda began trying to process what had happened. She had been a loner for her entire life, and college had been no different. She had paid extra to get a room all to herself, so this prank couldn't have been caused by a roommate since she didn't have one. She hadn't tried to make any friends in her classes, and her few acquaintances were not the type to pull something like this, especially not when she had a test this morning.
Thinking of the test, Amanda quickly glanced down to her watch. Although it was nearing midday based on the sun's position, her watch still read 5:43:21 AM. As she kept staring at it, the time didn't change at all. Just a month ago though, she had bought a new battery for it. Disgruntled, she made a mental note to remember to exchange the battery for a new one when she returned.
Once again, her mind returned to her predicament. What disturbed her most was the lack of evidence that the pranksters had left. How they manage

Forest Fantasy: Chapter 1, Part 1
Amanda was known for being a deep sleeper. She always set her alarm to make sure she was awake in time for her morning classes. Today, though, her alarm didn't go off, or if it had, she hadn't heard it.
Today, Amanda awoke slowly, groggily rolling side-to-side. Her bed felt rougher than normal though, causing her to slowly open her eyes. It took a few moments for her sight to register to the rest of her body.
When Amanda had gone to bed, it had been in her nice, warm bed in her college dorm, folding herself in between the sheets. Now, she found herself in the midst of a vast forest. Lush green trees grew on all sides of her, sunlight peaking through any holes in the luxurious foliage. She was laying on a thin bed of leaves, most of which were starting to decompose. The entire forest was quiet, less the chirping of a few distant birds.
Amanda sat up, shaking her head to get rid of the few last remnants of sleep. Her first instinct was to shout for help, but she quickly suppressed it. Wh

The Battle Within
Those who know me might be able to figure out what this deviation is about. I do believe that there is a battle raging within each person. I certainly know that there is within me.
Over the past few weeks, I have been doing some soul-searching, trying to find my way. I mean the average person has a lifetime of about 80 years or so. That's all that we have to make a difference, if we are going to make a difference at all. Shouldn't we try to make a difference then with each moment?
Of course, as soon as this topic gets started up, it starts to get shut down. There are simply some realities that must be faced. For example, like it or not, this world does revolve around money, so having a job is a requirement. That is one reason I am very grateful for being a tutor; I feel that I can make a difference while working. But, there's still a nagging feeling... while I am helping build a student's future, am I really doing anything for their forever? It's something that is still a major struggl

Literature
Death + Life
This is a subject that came up a few days ago. Some may think that Christians believe simply because they are afraid of death. Although I cannot speak for other Christians, the reverse is true for me... life is more scary than death at the end.
Since we live inside of time (a subject that may be a later topic), we cannot fully comprehend infinity. When I think about an infinite life in heaven, it gives me goosebumps (gives me shivers just writing about it). I mean, in my limited mind, wouldn't it get boring or just dragged out to go on forever and ever. Compare that to the idea that when you die, you're just dead. While at first glance, heaven sounds better, having an end to life is more appealing when you look just a little further.
If life just ends, then you know what to expect and can live life accordingly (and screw the consequences since you have to live to the fullest in the time you have). On the flipside, if life continues after death and continues forever... and what happens

Big Bang, Bigger Questions
As a tutor, I see the Big Bang theory come up quite a bit. It's one thing I simply cannot overlook when tutoring. So many books present it as a fact even though it's a theory. I have one simple qualm with the Big Bang theory. If someone wants to explain to me the solution, I would love to hear it.
From what I can tell, the Big Bang theory has two main idea strands. The first is that the Big Bang was the beginning of all creation, that before it, there was nothing. The second is that the Big Bang was caused by a collection of gases, particles, etc. that exploded. Each version has a similar major issue.
For the idea that the Big Bang came from nothing, my question is a simple one: How can something come from nothing? I cannot think of a single example in all of history where something has come out of nothing, without someone there to create it. We also have the Law of Conservation of Matter/Energy, which states that energy & matter cannot be created nor destroyed, only changing forms. It

Literature
Animes + The Problem of Evil
In philosophy/theology, the Problem of Evil is the question of how could an omniscient, omnipotent, and benevolent God let us suffer through all of the evil in the world?
Last night, I was up until 3 AM watching almost the entire second season of Dragonaut. Once it was over, I was struck with an odd realization... we already seem to have the solution to the Problem of Evil.
In almost every anime I've seen, especially combat-based animes, the basic plot is generally the same: another power in the universe comes to us and at some point offers us what it believes is a chance at a "better" existence, yet humanity rebels. When faced with the choice of a life without concerns or our own lives as they are, we choose the latter. This was especially visible in Dragonaut. In a late episode, Jin is given the opportunity to go through his life as the way he wished it would have been, without the plane accident that killed his whole family but still with all of his friends that he met along his jou

Hello to anyone reading this. This will likely be my last journal entry. I am in the process of cleaning out my life. I've given up video games and animes so far. The next (and last) steps are to finish phasing out the internet. It will be over whence I finish Tutorial 5 for Stencyl 2.0, which is drawing closer since I don't have other distractions in the way in the more (besides a major one called my job being busier than ever before ;P).

It's been nice getting to know all ya'll. :)

Hello everyone!

I have been a lurker around DeviantArt for a while now and finally decided to make my own page. I do love art and have found myself loosing hours of sleep just browsing the site. That said, I have no artistic ability of my own. In fact, that is the reason I finally decided to join; I am starting to program games for Kongregate.com and I could use some help creating art for them. Since the site is free, I cannot give much money to anyone who can help, but if an artwork is good, I will do what I can to compensate. Of course, full credits would be given to the artist(s) in my game.

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions about me, my games, or anything else :)

Also, I do comment a lot on pictures I like. If you find that I have commented on your picture, it means I liked it; that said, I know I prefer constructive criticism for my own works, so I try to offer some suggestions when possible. If you want me to critique something in particular, just let me know.

Favourite genre of music: Christian Pop/Rock
