If you're asking for my personal opinion, tell him that you're not interested in him or anyone who identifies as male and be done with it. The worst he will do is say he doesn't like you or ignore you, and you'll move on with your life.

I think this guy in my class has a crush on me. I'm gay. What the fuck do I do? Do I do nothing? Deny him? Does he even have a crush on me or am I just self centered?? He's gross, helpppp :')

That should be "What are YOU talking about?".
Sat Nov 7, 2015, 1:17 PM
Made a mistake, crap! I'll never hear the end of this...
Sat Nov 7, 2015, 1:16 PM
Also, Pennie, still talking about the flavor. What you YOU talking about?
Sat Nov 7, 2015, 1:14 PM
Congratulations, Beeker! :)

I have not made a Journal entry in two months, and that is unacceptable. So, here's a new one. It's a friendship meme to boot! (Well, it can also be used for romantic relationships, but I'm not about that life, so it's platonic.) And to the people who tagged back in August, I'll get to it tomorrow. I'm not spamming two Journals in one day. Anyway, let's begin! :D

This meme was taken by :icondinostreet:.

1. Hey there! Introduce the other person!
M-Pen who is literally my best friend on this whole website. Like, for real, we are total besties and moirails, which I figured out is not a Tumblr thing but a Homestuck thing.

2. How did you meet?
We officially met because other one of my friends BaconBaka linked me to a drawing of his OC Grace having been drawn by her. I made a killer sexual analogy and the rest, was history. If we're talking about how long I've known about her, since like late 2012-early 2013. I found her, once again, through Bacon as she had recently followed him.

3. Name some of the songs they like
I don't know many specific songs off the top of my head, but he loves Nicki Minaj and Marina and the Diamonds. :nod:

4. Name some of the things you like the most about them
Everything. Are you fucking kidding me?

Pennie is so freaking funny. Like, she always makes me laugh. And she's really good about putting things up on DA. She's also good with her own style of cartoon drawing, and her skills with layers are so much better than mine. I can talk to her about literally any problem I'm having in my personal life. I'm going to stop here because I'm about to write an essay on things I like about Pennie.

5. Do you know what they look like? If so, describe them
She has super curly brown hair, blue eyes, typically is found wearing a purple hoodie with a red bowtie, and her skin is fair leaning a bit on the pale side. She also wears glasses. Yay!

6. Describe their personality
Pennie is a real-ass dude. Like, he's so honest. You never have to really worry about him lying because he's not about that life. He's also hilarious. You are most likely going to find something he's said funny. He does have some insecurities, but so does every one. I will say that I do think he needs to be more confident in real life because he's a G and people should already know.

7. If they were an animal, what animal would they be? (besides cat, dog or wolf)
Pennie would be a bee. A bee is always the answer to this question. Specifically, she'd be a honeybee because bees are dying.

8. Name something you like about their personality
Pennie is honest, y'all. If he thinks something, he'll let you know how he feels. He is too real.

9. Name something you like about them physically
Her hair is so curly and it's amazing. Like, what the heck?? Why is it so amazing?? I wish my hair was that curly.

10. Give two things they probably don't know about you
Yeah, I'm not revealing these things on DA, so moving right along.

11. If you had to get their name tattooed on a body part, where would it be?
I'd probably get it on my right arm or the left side of my chest. I think it'd look good there, and I need balance so the tattoo on my chest would balance out my big-ass birthmark on the right side.

12. Do you have inside jokes?
Oh, do we... :eyes:

Not in that way, y'all. That's illegal, and I'm ace anyway.

13. Do you insult each other?
Generally speaking, no. There are times I'll joke around with her, but I understand that sometimes I shouldn't, and I respect that.

14. Do you admire them? If so, why?
I honestly admire his sense of humor and how he never holds back with it. I mean, it can be kind of vulgar to some people, but he's super real with it. He also doesn't hold back how he feels. Like, it's amazing and you can tell he's not trying to lie to you. He's too real for that.

15. Do you have something to thank them for? If so, tell them.
I want to thank you for being my friend. Honestly, it's because of you that I feel more secure and okay with myself as a human being. I don't have to hide who I am with you because I know you'll be okay with it. I also want to thank you for your crack pairings because they are great and at least of them needs to be canon at some point. I also also want to thank you for Corxes. Just, God bless this pairing. It's amazing, and it will be a symbol of our friendship forever. :)

16. Describe them in one word.

17. These question are pretty generic. Do you think they're pretty generic? I'm kind of bored. Let's just move on
Sure, why the fuck not?

Who's more...

I think I'm a bit more open to talking to a variety of people, but Pennie's so much better at commenting back than I will ever be.

Me. What is patience because I do not have any.

Pennie has better fashion sense with OC's, but I haven't seen her actual in real life wardrobe.

I'm gonna go with myself due to recent events I am not going to talk about here.

Neither one of us is really all that girly.

I know Pennie's probably going to say me, so me, I guess. I really don't see it though.

Pennie. Pennie for sure. I'm too much of a stick-in-the-mud to be rebellious.

Neither one of us. We're both introverted as hell.


Who's most likely to...

Attack a robber?
Me. I wish someone would try and rob me. I would track them down, and that would be that.

Become attached to an inanimate object?
Pennie, because it fits in her personality. And she's probably done it before in the past. Whoops.

Swear at a rude cashier?
Pennie. I have restraint in public. Online, I'd go to town with swearing with other people, but I'm too polite to do that in public.

Hit someone with a frying pan in self defense?
I feel like Pennie would be more likely.

Get arrested?
Me. That is all.

Die in a zombie apocalypse?
Pennie. I'm sorry, but I know how maneuver in the woods. We'd both die early on though, not gonna lie. I have no aim with guns, and close-combat weapons are sketchy. Also, on the topic of zombies... Shootaround, why are you trying to kill me with sadness?? What did I do to deserve this?!

Eat everything in the fridge?
Me. I will eat until I vomit and then continue to eat. I love eating so much; I'd eat the actual refrigerator if it were possible. I would eat someone out of house and home literally. Like, I'd eat the actual building. I have no restraint when it comes to eating.

Cry at a sad movie?
Pennie, mostly because I don't cry over movies. Heartless, I know.

Die in a stupid way?
Pennie, not gonna lie.

Since DA has turned fifteen today and can finally earn its learner's permit in the United States of America, I figure I may as well fill out this little questionnaire they have for us to fill out and see what comes from it.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

I have been on DeviantArt for over a year now. By the end of November, it will be two years since I've been on DA! Excitement~! :la:

2. What does your username mean?

I'm very optimistic, hence the optimist part, but I'm also really rude and snarky at times as well. Thus, AnOptimisticSnarker. Most people seem to like it, so I must have done something right with it.

3. Describe yourself in three words.

Moody, timid, tolerant

4. Are you left or right handed?

A total righty here, though being ambidextrous is a goal of mine. :nod:

5. What was your first deviation?

Total Drama Season 1 RankingsAlright, I figured for my first submission on DeviantART, I figure I'd do a ranking of every character from the original TDI. Keep in mind these are my opinions of the characters during my FIRST time watching the season. I have seen every season and am up to date on the episodes. So let's get started start from number 24. (Yes, I'm including Chris and Chef.)
24.) Ezekiel- Okay, hear me out. The reason Ezekiel's all the way at the bottom is because I didn't see the show until 'The Big Sleep', therefore I never saw Ezekiel compete during my original run. Due to that, I had no opinion on him, and to wait until I FINALLY saw the first two episodes during reruns, but by that point I had already seen everyone else, and I already formed opinions on everyone on the show. I will say however, he wasn't that bad and I did enjoy him in the TDI special. So due to that, Ezekiel clocks in at number 24.
23.) Sadie- Sadie was basically one half of TDI's BFFFL set. Unlike Katie, Sadie made it farther. U

Figures my first deviation is something I actually need to update. My opinions have change even since I've put this up, but this was supposed to reflect how I felt at the time this season was airing, not when this was posted. I put that in bold so people would pay attention.

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Fan-art of my things and of things my friends on here have created, though recently I've gotten into drawing more PPGZ and I will likely end up claiming the title of King of the Momoko/Sakamoto ship by the end of the year. I would like to upload some Digimon pics sometime because I'm falling back in love with the series.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

It would be anime for sure. I would just die if that were to happen, but practice is the only way I'll get good.

8. What was your first favourite?

Commission 39 by Kikaigaku

To be honest, I didn't realize this was my first favorite. I knew it was in here, just not that it was the first thing in here. Interesting... :meow:

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

I tend to favorite fanart of any show that I'm into, though a lot of it is digital, so I guess I'll go with digital art.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

I don't really have a favorite, per say, but I will say that :iconjeremyarts: is a darn good artist if I do say so myself, and I do. :XD:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

Any of my friends would be a blast to meet. I mean, I not the most social person out there, but it'd be neat to meet some of you guys out there one day. :)

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

If we're talking about getting me into things, then :icondrmonkeyman: and :iconcrazykid9219: are the driving forces behind me having at least an interest in the Survivor series. Thank you for infecting me with an appreciation for this show. I will both thank you and curse you for this. ;p

If we're talking about me growing as a person, then I have my friends on Skype (:iconm-pen: :iconbaconbaka:, :iconcragmiteblaster:, :icondarkshockbro:, :iconbrandonallencash:, :iconshu-no-kurohi:, :iconchlorofax:, :iconbadasp:) to thank for getting me to not be so damn shy all the time. and also :iconasujoll:, even though I haven't added you on Skype yet. And there's also :iconxebla: and :icontdwinnerfordinner: even if I have no idea whether or not you have a Skype. (Note me if you do!)

I'm also going to include :iconshadow326: in here and I'm also going to say Nations is still a great fic. Okay, plugging done. :XD:

And then there's the TDDO Chatzy crowd, which is too many people to tag, so I'll just give you kudos by saying y'all are a blast to talk to, even when things get tense.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

I use pencil and paper and also now GIMP for the most part.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

I typically just find inspiration anywhere. Sometimes I'm in class, sometimes I'm on the computer, and sometimes I'm lying in bed at night. My head is forever in the clouds.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Probably getting my first request, which was this. --->  A Kiss Under Mistletoe by AnOptimisticSnarker

I'll never forget the time this was requested because it was then I knew I made the right choice by joining this site. :happycry:

Alright, that's it for the sap. Time for me to go and reflect o my time here on DA some more.

Hey, everyone I'm AnOptimisticSnarker, but you guys can call me Yoshi if you want. It isn't my real name, but you can call me it.

Anyway, I've finally joined this site and I can't wait to put out some stuff on the shows and fanfics I love! If you can't tell by my Favorites page, I have the STRANGEST tastes in shows EVER! There is no rhyme or reason as for why I like shows and stuff, all I know is I like 'em.

I hope to have a great time on this site and to meet some awesome people too! Well, see ya'!

P.S. My numerous OC's will pop in my writings and drawings on occasion. Please don't mind them, they won't bite. (Well, some of them might if provoked...)

My DeviantArt Section. This is here because it's about damn time I put something here like this.

I only do requests for friends. And by friends I mean we need to have talked a considerable amount.

One day I would love to commission my works for others to enjoy. Until then, I'm content just doing things for friends.

Ten Re-Done Facts About Me
1. I am African American. I know I don't come off as such, but I am.
2. I am extremely shy to a complete fault. Again, I don't come off as such, but it's true.
3. My favorite color is yellow. Yes, bright and sunny yellow.
4. I can be a bit of a pervert. I do know when and when not to let it out though.
5. I really don't ask for a lot. I know I could ask for a request every so often, but I don't.
6. I can be very chill with people, but I don't tolerate bullies/people attacking my friends.
7. I am not the best writer in the world. I know I need work, but I'm getting there.
8. My favorite Pokémon is Wooper. It's so cute and hug-able despite being slimy.
9. The idea of having sex both grosses me out and scares me immensely.
10. I am a Nostalgia Critic and Linkara fan. Not a really big one, but I'm getting there.



I'm thinking about making a few commentaries on different things pertaining to Total Drama (seasons, characters, etc.) Is anyone interested in seeing such from me? 

17 deviants said Yes (Suggest someone down below.)
2 deviants said I Don't Know (Really, I don't give a damn.)
No deviants said No (Keep your opinions to yourself.)
