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
. 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?
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.
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!
