Something I'd like to say. For the last time...

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 12, 2012, 6:15 PM
  • Mood: Caring


Hello all, Dia here.
Now I'm not as eloquent as some of my friends are, but I'm going to give it a shot. I suppose you've all already read the journals posted by :iconsharkmate: and :iconthelittlehoneybee:. If so, then I'm sure you expect this journal to be a reiteration of their journal.

But it's not.

There's no point, really. Not matter what my friends and I may say--and we can say and say and say until we're blue in the face-- there are people that already have this assumption of us. Despite the fact that we've done nothing to merit such an assumption, but there you have it.
And you know what?

Oh well.

I won't apologize on my or their behalf because there really is nothing to apologize for. We're just a group of artists, with the same interests who joke, and laugh and comfort and relate to one another. We're friends. We're bros. How that term was taken out of context, I don't know, but again, there you have it.

This community....

Oh boy, this community....

It has been a joy and an absolute pain to be a part of, I can say that honestly. But the fact of the matter is, if it was not for this community, I would not have met the most wonderful people I've never thought could exist. We all came here because we're all creative, like-minded people and we wanted to share our ideas.
As for the title we were bestowed, whether we liked it or not, well. Oh well to that too.
I, for the most part, have come to terms with the fact that this is what people may think of my friends and I. Unfair as it may be, well.... what can be done? Am I going to let the cruel assumptions of a few keep me from doing what I love? Of course not. Because the many who know my friends and I, who truly know us, who have taken the time to get to know us, they are the ones we draw for; they outweigh the few.
And I speak for myself when I say that, that makes me feel popular.

I admit it.

That makes me feel popular.
Not because of my art, not because of watchers. I feel popular because I know it's due to the fact that I make sure to treat other admins with respect, despite what I may or may not think of them. Because it's the decent thing to do. The right thing to do. And of that, I can claim proudly. I'm popular because I'm kind. I respect. I understand. I treat admins like I, myself, would like to be treated. And some admins seemed to have forgotten that....

This will be taken out of context, of course. The few will take this as some sort of attention seeking journal, or that I'm being dramatic, or that I'm white knighting somehow. And this may come back to bite me in the butt, but you know what? It's okay. I really don't mind anymore. Because I respect your convictions. What you think is what you think; you don't know who we are, and how we are. I do. And that's what matters. And who am I to tell you otherwise anyway? No one, that's who. I'm not someone who you should worry about, and my friends and I, in turn will not worry about you. The best advice I offer, is that if what you assume us to be peeves you so, then by all means, don't follow what we do and how we do. Out of sight, out of mind~

This will be the last journal I will ever make addressing this subject. Because it is tiresome and because I have entries to judge, fluff to draw, and a Gordie shimeji that insists on tossing my windows off screen.
Have a lovely night everyone!

-Diana :heart:

:) I get it now, all I thought about before was how awesome you guys are, and all you do, all you say, it's funny, lovely, and happy :D, and let me say, I was kind of jealous myself, I thought that you being funny was an ability, a way of being yourselves, but, I also thought that you were like barbies, you like it a lot, and so, you want to be her, but when you try, nothing goes right, 'cause you are not a barbie, and you'll never be, those dolls make girls die of hunger, and try to be someone they're not. You and your bros where kind of my barbies, but now, it changed, I still love y'all, but now it's clear to me, that you're only a nice group of friends that are who they are, thanks for making it clear,
May your loved ones always love you, and your haters someday too,
~Katherine

(Well love, I'll be entirely honest with you on this whole subject of the bros. I'm coming out to you 'bout it seeing as I know you the most out of all of 'em. During this whole thing, especially later in time when the bros started growing, I was incredibly jealous. Not because of the popularity or the watchers you all received, but more because I hadn't found friendships like that from this community. The thing you all had was wonderful, and I envied the fact that I wasn't apart of such a thing. Now this isn't a cry out for attention or an ask to join you all, cause honestly, I barely know most of you (entirely my own fault). Sure I met amazing people on 'ere and made some good friends, but never felt that I had that bond with a few people that you and the bros share. So that's my side of it, I envied that fact I hadn't made such amazing friends. Respect and love all you still the same however. Hopefully, you don't take this the wrong way or as an attack. Simply wanted to speak my mind to a friend.)

Of course not, hun! You don't have to worry about me taking this the wrong way. In fact, I'm happy you can be honest with me! I completely understand what you mean. But what we did was we took the time to chat away with each other non stop, make up stupid and silly scenarios and just drew them being stupid in general. And I'm going to tell you now; don't be afraid to approach any of us if you want in on the silliness. In fact, that's how we all became so close to begin with. Don't be shy >u<

Easy to say don't be shy, hard to do ._.;. Hence why, I wrote this on your journal although they others tend to approach the case more. Not as shy since, I've gotten to talk to you the most.

Very true. It is easier said than done, but I do invite you to come and talk to us whenever you like. And I'm glad you're not as shy; if ever you wanted to rp, then please, go ahead and send me a starter and I will do the same (if it's all right with you) Maybe it will help you even more to go about and talk to the other admins :aww:

((I've had problems in other RP groups......It made me so upset that i left those chats because people were being....well you know. All i wanted was to have people to talk to and RP with and just do what I love. So I've taken up a project i made for myself so I can keep myself busy....Its just sad.....I don't have good friends irl, so I would look here only to find that I had behind my characters. I want to be myself and it sucks. I'm happy you can just brush it off even though its hard. I envy your strength, love. I hope everything you ever want will come true! Because with this positive attitude, good things are bound to come your way :icontinoplz:

And let me tell you now, I'm not as strong as I seem. I still get upset and angry about these sorts of things, to the point where it just makes me want to quit all of this, so it's a real fight for me to NOT do that. Like now, lol. And I understand what you mean, hun and I thank you for suck kind words~
You know, You're one of the older admins of this community and it sucks that we've never really talked. We should do so more. If you ever want to chat, like, about anything, you can send me a note :iconcutiesmileplz:

great wording and wonderful message. I really wish drama would stop. Your an amazing artist who worked your way up from scratch. You and all the other bro deserve the attention and pride that comes with your popularity. althought i would better describe you popularity as hard work paid off UuU. I enjoy the art and the person you are and i hope that this matter and all other matters will come to a rest. U_U. keep up the good work and i hope this message ups your spirit more <333. ))
