Save the Rainforest: Save Yourself by LittleBlueLens
Save the Rainforest: Save Yourself
I don't know what category to even put this under haha. I read somewhere a few days ago that 36 football pitches worth of trees are cut down every minute... and that's about 18 million acres a year! The amazon and forests all over the world (highest forest loss is Russia, then USA) are getting destroyed more and more every minute, and it is said that in 50 years time, there won't even be a rainforest - that is our lifetime! 

The message behind this piece is quite simple but I think it is quite strong.
 The picture of half my face plus the half of the monkey's face is to show that we are one; that we need the amazon as much as the animals do, and not just for furniture and mining etc, but we need it for oxygen! The amazon's trees make up a great percentage of our oxygen, and if the amazon goes, the animals who live there and the tribes who live there, unfortunately go with it.... as do we.
I also made a glitch effect to emphasize the time that is running out and that for every minute that passes, 36 football pitches worth of rainforest is destroyed. The background of the destroyed land and the fresh land is blurred to also emphasise the fact that time is running out, and the destroyed part is behind a human face because it is due to human actions that destroyed it. The monkey's half is green behind because it is their home.

So the message is that we must do all we can to help slow down the destruction and deforestation and put the dangers out there. I've done my bit ;) 

Please leave positive constructive comments only :peace: :)

I'm soooo happy and relieved that I have passed my first year at University. I attained a 2:1 in Spanish, a 2:1 in Education and a 2:2 in French and, to be honest, I'm quite surprised that I even passed, given my "study techniques" xD 
There's absolutely no denying that my first year at university was a memorable and amazing one, and I'm just sooo extremely glad that I left school a year in advance to do this, because the people I've met, the memories I've made, the achievements and obstacles that I have overcome, they beat going to prom or getting a yearbook any day!

However, I'm not gonna lie: there were times where it was tough and I missed a lot of people from home, but the windshield is bigger than the rear-view mirror  for a reason: you've got to see the bigger picture and move on, and that's what I've done and I'm so happy about this choice. The main person I have to thank for that initially is my French teacher from high school, Mr Conway. If it wasn't for him believing in my abilities and strengths, I would not be here writing this journal, feeling like the happiest person alive. I also have to thank my friends and family for all their support (eventually! haha) but I'd also like to thank my wonderful dA friends who kept me going: by commenting on my journals, by giving me advice, by sending me messages when I was feeling down or just to see how I was feeling. It's so nice to have friends on this website, and it's a sort of "escape from  reality" because you're talking to people from other parts of the world, but feeling a connection like the ones that have lived right by your side your whole life. So thank you to my amazing deviant followers for everything, you have played a massive part in my journey and keep me going in my darkest days :heart: #DeviantArtUntilIDie haha

Speaking of which, it's only a month exactly until I visit the wonderful xcxNinuixcx in Austria! (and hopefully cherry-yukai and xcxQuynxcx too!) :D I'm sooooo excited about going to Austria , you have no idea! And I know that I never shut up about this, but I still can't get over the fact that if it wasn't for this website, I would probably never have met any of those deviants and would never have had Esther visit me in real life, and probably wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to visit her in a month's time, either! :iconlegaspplz:

So that's the one thing that is pushing me on through the summer, because I've been pretty bogged down with work and personal issues. I'm couchsurfing and commuting and it's been like that for about a month, and will be like that for the next few weeks. But I'm hoping that it'll settle down once I get my transfer back home in Glasgow, and  I'm just trying to work as hard as I can so that I can earn money for my holidays to Austria and Poland :) 
This summer is pretty mierda already tbh haha, the Scottish weather teamed with commuting and working almost every day plus never really getting to see my family or friends is just quite rubbish, but that's why I'm glad I have you guys :aww: :heart:

So enough about me, I wanna hear from you guys! What plans have you got for the Summer? How did you get on at school/work/uni/college this year? Is anybody wanting any answers or advice about leaving school? Just leave a wee comment and I'll get back to you! :)

I hope you're all well! :heart:

Electric Dandelion by LittleBlueLens
Electric Dandelion
A swing ride at Edinburgh's Winter Wonderland Christmas Carnival. I thought it resembled a dandelion or some sort of neon flower :)

Let me know what you think!

Also, I just got a tumblr account today. It's mainly photography, art, nature and a lot of posts about positivity (I'm quite a hippie at heart xD) I'd really appreciate it if you guys could check it out, like some of my stuff or follow me, because I have nooo idea what I'm doing ^^; haha. My name is electricfl0wer and you can find me here: electricfl0wer.tumblr.com/

Thank you for all your support! :) :heart:

I still can't get over how quickly things can change in a few months ^^;

I split up with my boyfriend so I'm now single and I'm so happy with that. Not in a mean way, but I think I need some time to "discover myself" and I didn't want to mess him around with all that. Also, the long distance was making it too difficult. Long distance in the long run isn't as good as I thought it was; many complications come along the way... But now that I'm single I feel free to do what I want and only worry about myself. Seeing each other cost us so much time, money and effort so it got draining after a while. However, unlike my first ex, we're remaining friends and he was really mature about everything :)

I've been doing rather well in Spanish but French is really difficult. I'm just scraping passes, unlike last semester. I don't know why. I thought that less partying, less drinking, less of everything would help me but I just don't seem to have the time. I have my clubs and societies on top of uni work on top of leisure and seeing family and friends... it's difficult to balance them and language courses have 3 components (culture, grammar and oral) and there's so much work to do for those, so all in all I have about 7 subjects to study for.... I've got novels to read for French and Spanish but I can't even read a full novel in English! I'm still on page 173 or something of the Hunger Games.... from 3 years ago! :lol:

I also had the amazing opportunity to become friends with some Japanese exchange students! We met at this thing called "Japan Week" and they stayed in Scotland for 7 weeks. I became really close to 3 of them in particular, and we bonded over our cultural and lingual interests, as well as our funny, crazy personalities. They were all so cute as well. We had a farewell ceilidh for them, and towards the end it got a bit tearful. One of my close friends from the exchange, Yuri, was crying when I gave her a card and a bracelet she wanted. I also made cards for my two other friends, Kenji and Kana. They sent me messages saying how grateful they were for meeting me, and how they'll never forget their first ever Scottish friend, and I thought that was really sweet :aww: :heart: They also learned Scottish words like "cheers" and "aye", and started to develop Scottish accents, like not pronouncing their Ts! It was so funny and cute. :lol:
Meeting them did nothing but extremely heighten my desire to travel and discover Japan :aww:  (although, I must admit, I'm pretty bored without them now! haha)

AND - Announcement! I FINALLY GOT MY FIRST PART-TIME JOB! YIPPEEEE! It's at my favourite clothes shop called 'New Look' and I just finished my 3rd shift today :) My friend from Spanish, Education and LGBT works there too, so it's nice to know someone, and I can earn a bit of dosh around the side :)

So all in all I've been doing rather well. I've had my typical student moments where I lose motivation to do all work, but that quickly passes and I'm back on track again. I have my first exam on April 16th and then one on the 20th, then they run all the way up to the 20th May, and after that I'll be done! SO strange to think such a thing!

So I hope you all have a lovely jubbly Easter, and I'll update again once this semester is over :D

Adiós amigos! :heart:
