Unleash your dark side

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 29, 2014, 5:38 PM

Idk if many of you know, but when I was younger I got bullied in school for what I enjoyed, I bring this up because of what recently happen to a kid for liking MLP and being bullied for it, to the point of almost taking his own life. 

I hated school and people in general, I know there's no real easy way to handle it and everyone takes things differently. 

But I want to encourage those that do have problems to try to your best to vent with your art even if people around you won't listen.. 

I know it seems silly now and weird. but back when I was bullied and ignored, rocketchu and growlash was how I got out my anger that I felt to the ones that bullied me.

sometimes it can be fun to play the bad guy through art, to get your revenge that way or at lest it helped satisfy my hurt and anger back in high school. I used them to make my art work even better. 

Stay strong no matter what, remember to always draw on.

Huh, now that I remember, people sort of made fun of me for liking Pokemon. I mean, they weren't bad insults or anything, but this kid named Forest would say, "She likes Pokemon," in a sneering kind of tone. I didn't understand bullying back then, so it didn't affect me so much, but now that I understand it, it either angers me or hurts me. But I mostly get bullied just online, not so much in real life. Everyone's nice to me in real life. I guess I don't get bullied online, but called stupid or something for making a simple mistake, and someone once asked for forgiveness for being rude to me and they were like "I take that back I didn't mean it" or something. People these days >:/

my OC BlackLight was a way for me to get revenge on people in my comics... i got into even more trouble for making a comic like that even though i never made direct indication i was planing on hurting someone for real

I remember when we had this convo over skype. Yep, I was bullied a lot in elementary school for being the weird kid with a huge imagination. Later bullied in junior high for not wearing makeup or being boy crazy. I was a nerd. High school got a little better because I developed a violent aggressive attitude. I fought people and won. Though, art has kept me sane. If it weren't for vent art I probably would have shot up a school.

Thank you so much for this. I have been ignored by my best friend this year, and we were so close. I knew her since the beginning of this school year, but she decided that we were too close, and since I was straight, she apparently liked me and I didnt know. So now, she says I stole her art style and her ideas, when in fact I asked for permission to use all that stuff. She also talks about me behind my back, and before all this she hacked my old deviantart account I had for 3 years. She said I was a terrible human being, everyone i have ever met hates me, and my art style was ugly. And after that I made this account, gained more watchers than I ever had on that old account, and figured out who my real friends are. What made this worse is that she went to the Principal and said that my vent art was me "targeting her" and thats what started all this, when nobody even knows what she really did. So somehow, me expressing my feelings got me in trouble. Thank you so much for posting this journal. It really helped me see, I did nothing wrong by posting those pictures. I have actually improved in art since she left, my grades have improved, and I am overall a happier person. There is no drama in my life anymore. It ended with her hating me, but I think the pros outway the cons. I still wonder if I had known she liked me before when she hinted at it by shipping our two OCs if anything had been different. But I know I am better off now then I ever was with her. I cant believe everything that has happened in the last two months and how out of control it all got.

Something similar happen to me too a few times... Its sad to lose a  friend due to hidden crushes that spiral out of control. But you can't help how you feel and they should get over it..

I try to watch getting too close to people now, besides my boyfriend.
