Getting a new flag tomorrow, here are some of the ones I'm considering, which should I get?
I found this thing that was I think some kind of anti-integration thing from the 50s shopped to say "Normies get out this is a weeb neighborhood" with some anime organism over the face of the person, and I went and edited that to make this.

The joke explained if you don't know: King Tut's father Akhenaten tried to introduce a monotheist religion to Egypt (Atenism), but his son went and restored the old gods. I could have also done this with the Roman emperor Julian.
It just occurred to me... What if the reason Justin Trudeau was so sympathetic to Castro's death was because Castro was his real dad? I mean, I think it's common knowledge that Margaret Trudeau did the horizontal fuck dance with a number of man-mistresses, including Castro, so, what if the Prime Minister isn't Pierre's son?
It's been a while since I've had a good ramble on this journal. I used to do it frequently, but not so much these days. So, get ready for a mess of whatever pops into my head coupled with life updates, work ideas, and some stuff that actually makes sense.

First off, I don't get why James Cameron's movies are so popular, they're just other stories with a different setting, the man has 0 original ideas. Titanic is just Romeo and Juliet on a boat (and quite inaccurate, but that's a gripe for another time), and Avatar is just Pocahontas in space. And yet, the fucker just throws in some fancy CGI and a sex scene and critics and audiences collectively funnel cash directly into his magical undersea fortress. I mean, those movies don't completely suck ass, they created a whole language for Avatar, that's impressive as shit, but it doesn't change that it's just a rehash of a semi-sucessful Disney flick. (That said, other than the unoriginal plot, those movies could have had potential to be spectacular, especially Avatar, total loss of potential right there.)

I've been unemployed for about 3 months now, and I am feeling downright hopeless as to what the hell to do. As you know, my go-to hope for a job is the Museum, and I am still hoping that I can get the job when it finally opens, but my parents won't let me wait a few months for that to happen, and are pushing me to do something else. For a little bit, I got a glimmer of hope when I visited the pet expo (an annual show of animal related charities, businesses, and clubs) and found a lot of places I'd love to work or volunteer at. But then as I looked into it, the opportunities all faded away. Can't volunteer at the SPCA, they're on the other side of town, the Reptile Rescue's options are only open to Reptile and Amphibian owners, the Greater Edmonton Animal Rescue Society and Big Al's Aquarium store both require a drivers licensed or some reason. All that's left is the city zoo, which I applied for a few days ago, and really hope I get, because after museum work, a zoo job would be a dream come true for me, and Edmonton's zoo is actually pretty great, unlike almost everything else here. Tigers, seals, capybaras, an elephant, zebras, camels, foxes, a snow leopard, an axolotl, meerkats, toucans, wombats, emus, eagles, monkeys, owls, kookaburras, poison dart frogs, a reticulated python, a red panda, bats, armadillos, porcupines, I could go on and on about the amazing animals they have there, and it would be so amazing to actually work with these animals, even if indirectly, because I love zoology and animals. (I might even get animal-y work if I score a museum job, since they have a bug room full of live creatures and a room of dinosaur stuff.). So, here's hoping I'm sucessful.

So, I wanna say a bit about my work here on DA, and what I'm wanting to do. So, the History of the USA series, I still really want to do that, but I'm taking a bit of a break, since those pictures are harder to make than you'd think, especially the research part. As for other stuff, I actually don't really have much planned, I'd like to do another country map (like the Haiti, Singapore, and Abkhazia ones I've done), but I'm not really sure what to do. Another idea I've had is to do a map of Africa with all the administrative divisions, but then I see how tiny some of those Burundian and Algerian regions are and think "How the hell am I going to do this?". On a related note, how do you show borders on rivers? I've never really been sure, when I do a map that shows both and a border runs on a river, do I make that border blue or black? I'm leaning towards blue, since I think that would show the path of the river better, but I'm not 100% sure. Another thing I've been wanting to do is more stuff to do with rulers, like my charts on English and French monarchs. I started making one of those for Russia, but I don't know if I'll finish it due to the incredibly complexity of medieval Russia. One I'd love to do is Rome, since I've been reading a great book on the emperors lately, but that's pretty chaotic too what with all the co-emperors and emperors in opposition and disputed emperors. Something else I've been wanting to do is a gallery of unique and unusual rulers, some examples being Jean Bedel-Bokassa, John I of France, Turkmenbaşy, and  Tu'i Tonga o ke Tamatou of Tonga. But I'm yet to compile a list of enough (I want at least 10. I remember there's a Togolese president who made comic books about himself, but I don't think that's weird enough.). As for videomapping and YouTube stuff, I think it's game over there, I'm just not happy with YT as a platform enough to continue working there, but I may still make some unlisted videos of I feel like it, and what's already there will stay up.

I recently replayed Luigi's Mansion, and I feel like I'm actually really great at that game, managing to make it to the final boss after about 5 hours total of playing. But now that I'm at the final boss, I have no clue what I'm doing. I know I could just look it up, but for some reason, that never occurs to me when I'm actually playing. I'm gonna have a go at it tomorrow though and try to beat it. I wish I could beat Mario 64 too, but holy crap is that rainbow-cloud secret star impossible to get. It's the only star I have never gotten in that game, and I don't wanna face bowser without all 120. Same goes for the second-to-last level of Hotline Miami 2, I keep getting caught off guard and end up getting shot in the face or mauled by a dog, almost as bad as the cargo ship level.

That's pretty much all I have to say at the moment, I was expecting there to be more, but time flies when you're dumping your thoughts on random shit, and it's now almost 3:30 AM. I really need to get some sleep, since I have a therapist appointment at 9 AM on Monday and have to get my sleep schedule shifted to prepare.

Last minute thought: They should make a film adaptation of the Last Airbender that isn't a horrible, truncated, poorly-cast, unfaithful, Shamylan-y mess. That would be nice. If only Nickelodeon gave a shit.

I think it would be good if you could appoint some more Co-Founders to the Chinese-History group. That would allow more people to be able to accept or reject incoming files or affiliations for instance.
Robo-Diglet Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2017
I'll put out a status update and journal asking if anyone's interested.
YamaLama1986 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2017   Digital Artist
Alright, I think there may be people who are already members of the group who could be good candidates.
Robo-Diglet Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2017
Who do you suggest?
