My younger sister. SHE got a job. Not me. But this isn't completely unrelated to me either. Let me tell you the story here.

So once upon a time there was an Arby's not too far from where I live. That Arby's went out of business or something happened to the building or.....I don't really know the details. Anyway, so a few weeks later my sister had graduated from high school. So we took her out to eat at the Applebee's that was right next to the former Arby's. But now that building was just an empty place for future businesses. So, on that day on our way back home, we noticed a sign near the door of the building. It said the building will soon become a Popeye's Chicken. I swear, there is absolutely none of those in my city. Several McDonald's, a few Burger Kings, even an IHOP. But never a Popeye's. So as you can imagine of a restaurant-to-be, they needed to employ some people soon. There was a job interview the other day. She signed up with an application online and didn't tell me until after the interview was over and she returned. I knew it was going to be a Popeye's before she did, so I wish she had told me they were hiring, but they are still going to be understaffed for a bit in the beginning I guess. Anyway, she told me the interview was quick, easy, and for some reason took place in the interviewer's car. The building was definitely not ready yet, so I guess that's how he wanted to improvise. :shrug: Nothing happened to her, so that's good news to me, my sister knows better than to just get in some guy's car like that. Anyway, she and several others got jobs in various positions. She told me the available positions there might be and one didn't deal with people, or food directly, and only required small amounts of manual labor that hopefully I can handle. "Packaging" or something, basically taking the new food or whatever would be in boxes out of a truck or something and moving it into the place to where it needed to go. Simple, not too difficult or demanding, and likely only needed me to be there a few hours for two or three days out of the week. So I will apply for that when it opens or whenever my sister said I should apply online. I forgot which position she got though.....

My point is, I might be getting a job. But it might not be until possibly early Winter. I don't know how much the job will pay, but even minimum wage sounds good to me, this WILL be my first job. I just hope I can actually get it in the first place. Because in my experience things tend to not work out very well for me.

I found a way to play Cards Against Humanity, but it seems to be taking a while to find other players. I'll probably be trying it whenever I can, but my question is this: Does anyone want to play it with me? I figure you can simply go to the site, go to play online, then join a game. If it asks for a nickname, do what I did and just use the one you have on dA if you can't think of one or something. I'd love to play against some people, so message me if you would like to play it or just try to go to this site and see if I'm still looking for players. Here's the site: www.cardsagainstoriginality.co… :)

Flannery likes it hot.
Her fire burns with passion.
A heat wave that hits the spot,
with every flaming action.

I'm overheating,
having trouble breathing,
this girl is making me sweat.

Can't handle it,
burning up,
her presence,
makes my brain erupt!

Rolling over me like a flaming wheel,
I've got no time to think,
no time to heal.

An explosion of love,
flamethrower to the heart.
Blasted by her burn,
ignited at the start!

Her awkward speech,
makes me melt,
I can't tell her,
what I've felt.

This battle's blazing,
her skill's amazing,
and there's nowhere to run.

Save me now,
I'm going under!
She torched my team,
tearing my hopes asunder.

She makes my heart sing,
when I see her at the hot spring,
and there's a smokescreen in my head.

Heat exhaustion,
is killing me.
I have no chance,
I can see.

A girl walks my way,
and fills my heart with glee.
It's my darling dear, Flannery!
I Can't Take The Heat!
This isn't supposed to be a song like what inspired it, but I tried to make it less fluid than my other poems. The way it flows is a bit fast-paced and should sound a bit panicky in how it's written. I hope I got the desired effect. this is what inspired me to write something like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dJXCN… I love that song!!

I have been watching a Let's Play of Valkyria Chronicles for PC(originally for PS3). And one particular character has struck me as familiar. Her name is Rosie, or at least her nickname is anyway. She has red hair, a tough girl attitude, and the skills to back up such an attitude on the battlefield, but she is also still a nice girl who grows as a person through interaction with others. Do you know who else has very similar qualities as that from a fantasy era long before the events of Valkyria Chronicles? Sully from FEA. What if......what if Sully was an ancestor to Rosie? Or perhaps some sort of re-incarnation? Valkyria chronicles is kind of like a modernized version of the fantasy world from Fire Emblem. Except in WWII era instead of medieval era. A shocktrooper is a lot like a chevalier. Fairly balanced in both attack and defense. Although, chevaliers have much better movement, but that is likely thanks to them having a horse. The similarities are definitely there. Here's a pic of Brigitte "Rosie" Stark: vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/v…

And it should be noted that Rosie has an interesting relationship with Isara, especially after a certain battle's events. Here is a pic of Isara, one of my favorite characters. (Such a cute young tank pilot....): vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/v…

Lately I've been watching youtube videos of people playing Cards Against Humanity. It looks fun and I wish I could play. I know there is an online version or something, but for that I'd probably need friends or have to register or something. If anyone knows how that online one works and how I might be able to play it against some people(preferably people I know on here, but that's a bit too unlikely), please tell me. Even if I knew where to buy the game, I don't think many people would want to play it with me. My mom would hate the very concept of it I bet, my sister doesn't like doing anything with me, my uncle isn't around too often and I don't even know if he'd want to play, and everyone else I know is either too young, too busy, doesn't visit very often, or wouldn't know enough about anime or other specific things some versions of the game have. My only adult friends are on dA, and even them I don't know very well other than their art and what they write in comments and replies.

I have very little skills with art in general. Although, I am not too bad at writing poetry. My emotions need to be expressed and it is a great way to do it. Seeing the final product of working on a poem that I wrote always takes me out of the bad mood the poem was most likely based on. There are many different sides to me. Good and bad. I hope people will appreciate the better ones.

I'm happy to offer some of my artwork for the enjoyment of those who would like to read it. I wanted to find a group to help me get more notice, so I should be thanking you. I read the rules before even joining the group, so no worries there. And I'm glad you offer help as to where to put what since I'm not always sure what to label my art as. Fan fiction poetry is a bit hard to place sometimes given it could fit into two different places. ^^;

I'm glad to hear it! 
For future reference if it's fanfic poetry then submit it to literature ^^ We won't bite your head off if you submit it to the wrong place though!

I'm so glad you like it! I've always thought my writing to be obviously amateur, and so I try different styles of poetry or change how I word things. For now(hopefully not permanently), I have to use my kindle fire to use dA. So my writing may start lacking given the vast differences between it and a real keyboard. I can't even write journal entries! However, I may be able to get back to using my laptop soon if all goes well. Either way, I won't stop writing!
