Please don't take what you've got for grantedI'm from a Third World country called Guyana. It's located in South America, and while it's a beautiful country, it is a poor one.My parents and I emigrated to America in 1995, right before my third birthday, and we moved into a small, cold attic. For my first year in America, we had no furniture. We had no couches or chairs. We used to eat our dinner on a cold kitchen floor. At some point, I had came across a cardboard box which I had folded into two pieces and drawn cushions on. That became my "chair" for my first year in America.As well as I know my father, I don't know the complete story about his childhood or how he grew up. My father was orphaned by the time he was sixteen years old and I vaguely know that he grew up in poverty.A couple of years ago, my father was bringing home a pizza for me. I was hungry, so when he finally got home with the pizza, I said something along the lines of, "Oh, thank god! I'm starving." My father, whose eyes I'm the apple of, who's never yelled a
I HAVE EXCITING NEWSOkay! I have so many things to tell you guys.First, earlier this semester, I added on a second major. As of a few months ago, I was majoring in biology, but when I took organic chemistry, I loved it so much and decided to add on a chemistry major. I'm now double majoring in biology and chemistry. Second! I got some super great news last Saturday. I'M GOING TO BE AN ORGANIC CHEMISTRY TEACHING ASSISTANT NEXT SEMESTER!! I really wanted this and I can't even tell you how excited I am. Needless to say, this was a busy semester. It was probably my most busy so far, since I spent many Friday and Saturday nights in the library. But it looks like it's paid off. Features!A few months ago, I asked you to complete a survey for a friend who was doing a project for his business class. His project was a success and we are deeply grateful! Thank you all so much. :iconSkrillexia-TF: :iconMangaGirlNum6::thum

This is what I don't like seeingI was browsing around deviantART today when I found a piece of art that I liked so naturally, I faved it.Sometimes, when I fav something, the artist will come to my page and leave a comment telling me thanks. Sometimes they won't. Either one doesn't bother me because I'm not looking for anything in return.But to my surprise, when I faved that piece of art today, this was the comment left on my page a few moments later:Instead of saying thank you, or showing some sort of gratitude, they had simply instructed me to comment when I fav.I thought this was incredibly rude and obnoxious.First of all, no one owes you anything on this site. Every time someone comments, favs, features, etc. anything you post, remember that they didn't have to do that, so be humble and be thankful.And sure, it would be nice to upload something and get thousands of comments and thousands of favs, but I won't get mad when that doesn't happen. I'll just be happy with what I get because again, no

Happy Birthday DeviantART! Welcome to Wonderland Greetings, stranger.I find myself delighted to lay my rather large eyes on you. A purrfectly delicious mystery awaits you. Won't you come this way?I've been a bad kitty-- a very naughty, naughty feline, indeed. You see, today is Alice's Unbirthday, and all the inhabitants of Wonderland had planned to join her and the Mad Hatter for tea and cake. But, the Mad Hatter, being quite a bit off his rocker, is requiring that everyone wear a hat to the party. Anyone without a hat cannot attend.Whoops! Mysteriously, *smile* all the hats in Wonderland have gone missing. What a shame, what a shame. Whatever shall we do?I know what we shall do. You and I, stranger, we shall go to the party together. I hear the cake is delicious this year, and there will be plenty for us.Except, wait! HA! You cannot!!! You have no hat, either! I suppose you'll have to stay here, too, then. Very well. Goodbye.
