I sometimes wonder when and how my friends became my friends in the first place....
Wish You Were Here by Hokage3
Wish You Were Here
Another Year Without You

Do you still remember? Last Year, you promised that we will always be together. You said that you will stay by my side. Do you still remember? You said that you will never miss every single smile I make because it makes you truly happy. But you are a person with big goals. You wanted to follow your dreams, believing that achievements would make others proud of you. So you left, together with all your promises. Still, I waited, here in the place where we first met. I am hoping that you will surprise me like you always do. I wanted you to sneak from my back and cover my eyes with your gentle hands, making me guess, even though the answer is always obvious. Then as I look back at you, you will face me with a sweet smile. As the clock strikes twelve, the bell echoed through the silent halls of the dormitory. There, standing, I waited. Fireworks fly up and blooms into colorful flowers in the sky, one after another. You didn't show up. All I have now is a letter on my hands. It says

"Happy New Year!

I apologize that I can't see you right now. I've been busy chasing my dreams. But do you know what's sad?
It's the fact that as I get closer and closer to reaching my goals, I get further and further from you in return.
I wish that I could be with you and greet you personally. I miss you so much. I hope that next year, I could
go back to you, and spend all the time I could have shared with you. I love you. until then."


I shall welcome the new year without you, but I am happy that you haven't forgotten about me. Only, I really wish that you were here. You see, the flowers in the sky tonight would have been even more colorful if I'm with you.

Hokage Report,

 

“Change is hard, especially to those who doesn’t accept it.”

 

Hello there guys, it’s been a while. How are you guys doing lately?

 

 I was away for a short time, and here I see that Deviantart has changed in many ways. It somewhat become more and more “Facebookish” in its lay-out, not to mention the use of hashtags (#) for the keywords, very twitter. Yeah Deviantart, be as ORIGINAL as you possibly can. I’m not saying that incorporating such features would hurt since a lot of us here are so familiar with them, it’d be much easier if DA will be used in the same way. It could help DA become livelier having an almost FB Timeline/ Wall thing. Gasp, maybe there isn’t anything to complain about in the first place…maybe I’m not into social media that much that the feel of using FB every time I log-in feels so off, or that I’m not prepared for the sudden changes that I need some readjustments. And the LOGO!

 

I’m not here to rant about it. Many hate the new logo, some like it, some doesn’t care at all. It’s DA’s call to change whatever they like whenever they like, it’s just that they forgot to consider the community in the process. A vote would be great if they don’t want to hold any contests for the new logo. Giving us a chance to have a voice for the site we thrive in is one of the best ways for DA to show concern. In the end though, you can’t please everybody and any effort will always have its opposition. What can I say about the logo? Deviantart sure think deep enough to come up with a logo so vague and unrecognizable, it even left the artists here to ask exactly what it is. The logo is full of symbolism and explanation that it ceased to be something basic in any art…”Beautiful”. True, it is open for interpretation and art is in the eye of the beholder, but I personally don’t like the logo (I repeat, personally) despite the concept (which is cool in a way). I felt like dA’s logo generalized artists as a stereotype, a person who thinks deep, see the world in a different perspective, has something so breath-taking to say, have an expression beyond comprehension, you get what I mean…special beings, that they took away the “Fun” from all of it.

 

I don’t know if I’m making sense here, and I’m sure not everyone will agree with my opinion. I’d really like to know what other’s think though.  At the end of the day, we are all here with the purpose of sharing our artworks and having fun with our friends. Deviantart will still be the place where we find solitude and freedom to be ourselves, and that’s a good news.

 

It seems this journal entry is all about me ranting after all, anyways I’ll be busy before this year end, so I’ll be around more often as I finish my pending artworks for March, August and October. My next journal will not be about ranting. Instead, some updates about what’s going on with me and the likes. Until then this is Hokage.

Hey Hokage! I have about a month of break before college begins up again. Would you like to do a collab with me? :la: A collaboration is when two artists work on the same picture, and I think it'd be so fun to color one of your line-arts if you wanted to draw one for me to color! :la:

Waaa, Art Collab. Yeah I've heard about it. I've never been into an Art Collab before. It mean this is my first hehe. Hmm, I might be able to start with my lineart this early January since I'm going to be very very busy with other stuffs as the year draws to and end. Is it ok with you? And what artwork do you prefer coloring? It matters because if you enjoy what you are coloring, it will turn out great.
