Now if you're on this page, you're either coming in from my FanFiction or DeviantArt profile, a random stranger, or someone special that I trust enough to share my alter ego with.

And whatever the case may be, this LiveJournal only exists to serve as a connection medium for all my online identities, and also as a medium for my real self to vent at empty internet space and whoever dares to read my rants and raves.

As a quick overview, you'll find only a few things (of varying degrees of value) here:
  • haikus - as part of my daily challenge to compose one of those short poems every day
  • general personal updates - to prove that I'm more than just artificial intelligence, and because I have no friends to talk to otherwise
  • music - because I love the artists enough to promote them all the time
  • fanfiction - it's a guilty pleasure that I indulge and waste a lot of time and effort in, only because I love stringing words together
  • link - to either my other profiles or to help publicize my friends' work
Links (you should at least check out the ones that aren't mine!):
  • My FanFiction - pretty much self-explanatory; I write what I want to

  • My DeviantArt - for now I only have text ripped from my FanFiction in order to submit for some communities on dA, but I might post images and the like

  • Kuruk - a very good friend's FanFiction writing, mostly having written for Harvest Moon, Pokemon, Kingdom Hearts, and Earthbound/MOTHER

  • Internal Dialogue - one of my good friend's Tumblr ("I, Jane Yuan, solemnly vow to do something productive, or at the very least exciting, with my life everyday and document it.") And she does! :D

  • Alice Syndrome - my cousin's online web comic ("Year 27xx. Hostilities are growing between the Human and Bestia races, and a war appears to be inevitable. The one thing that prevents violence from breaking loose is Dnarlrednow, a large city at the crossroads of the Human and Bestia lands inhabited by the Alice clans.") A psychological thriller at the heart--it's still in the beginning phases of the story, but I'm sure it'll kick up soon enough!

  • Tseng's Fairy Tales - a friend's website that he recently kickstarted to publish his own original fiction ("My name is Kevin Austin Tseng, and I used to weigh 220 pounds. This may sound crazy, but I think I lost that weight because of a fairy tale, one my father told to me at night. I believe that fairy tales can change lives.") He's doing some good work and I'm fully supporting him for all the effort that he is putting into his writing--gotta support your fellow writers, ya know!

  • Yuto Watanabe's Photography - a friend's online photography portfolio ("My grandpa gave me my first camera when I was in 1st grade--a clunky, old, point-and-shoot camera. No instant preview capabilities. At least it had auto-focus, I suppose. I went through a lot of rolls of film without knowing how much it cost.") Pictures speak more than words--I can't say much to describe his shoots!

  • The Language of Food - a professor's great food blog ("The relationship between food and language around the globe.") For anyone that loves food! Where does the word 'ketchup' come from anyway?

All my tags are at the bottom of this post: explore away!

I have unintentionally discovered how to make treats that no dog can resist. And I have subsequently spent the last three hours making those dog treats so that my puppies can have something awesome in their tummy for the next few weeks.

I'm not sure if this means that I'm dedicated or if I have way too much time on my hands.

Probably both.

Anyway, this is June 26's haiku:

playing with soft dough
under your fingertips gives
you all the control.

Thought of it while I was shaping the dog treats into little biscuits. It was actually really fun to make time, save the glaring the dogs were giving me--I'm pretty sure they'd be willing to eat the biscuits at any stage of cooking, and actually before I added flour and baked the biscuits, the dough mixture is pretty much loose dog food. Basically took some bullion-cooked rice and stirred it together with meat, then basically added flour and water and knead until it's pretty much dough. It's really not that big of a deal and I made it out of meatball and sausage leftovers.

Anyway, you should totally try the recipe out if you want!!!--it's just rice (because I'm Asian and I like to use things that I eat), any sort of minced or chopped meat (I chopped my meat though I'm sure smaller bites would make for a better texture), and flour and water. Should be relatively healthy for the pooches!
