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 :')

So... Do you think Beeker beat the Super Single Battles?

Good luck, Beeker. I have a feeling you will need it.

First off, Happy New Years to everyone. It's still January 1st for me, so it's not too late. Second, it took no time for me to be tagged in 2016.

Anyway, I was tagged by :iconbeekermaroo777: to do this. I really just needed an excuse to do a New Years Journal. Just being honest.

1.) What did it first feel like to join deviantART?

Honestly, it took a while for me to even join this site. I'm glad I did, but part of me wishes I joined the day I found it and not two years later than I should have.

2.) What TV Shows did you become interested in over the time of 2015?

I started watching both Gravity Falls and Star vs. the Forces of Evil. I'm not sure how it took me so long to hop on the Gravity Falls train, but I did. A little too late, but still made it. Star vs. tthe Forces of Evil, however, I started a couple of weeks ago, and I love it!

3.) Who do some of your best dA friends include?

My best friends include most people in the TDDO community (there's a few people I don't think I've ever talked to before), my friends on Skype, xebla, Boomer, Sunny, but most of all, Pennie! You are a joy and delight to talk to. I can't believe it's been a year since we met. :happycry:

4.) What do you hope for in the future?

Art! I did not do much of anything the last third of the year because of school, but next semester all I have is an internship (that I'm clearly underestimating), and I'm not taking summer classes, so I should have more time to draw and maybe write. I also just got a Tumblr page, but I'm not telling what my username is until I figure how I want my page to look.

5.) On dA, we can make some mistakes. Sometimes, it can involve people. Out of everyone, who do you wish to make amends with?

There is one person I would like to make amends with, but we did end on good terms, so I think it's best to just leave it there. I'm not mentioning them because I'm not sure I should. There's one other person I stopped talking to from last year as well, but it was for the best as well.

6.) Movies always play a major role in an awesome year. Which movies do you wanna go see this year?

I honestly have no idea. I'm the worst with movies; I almost never see them when they are really big. I wait until all the buzz dies down with them and they go on DVD because I'm too lazy to go to the movies.

7.) Time for Video Games! Out of every video game out there, which ones do you want to complete this year?

I want to actually try and complete my Pokédex in both my Y and Alpha Sapphire versions. I'm being a lazy butt and not doing it. :hmm:

8.) What's your New Years Resolution?

My new years resolution is to draw more. I barely drew anything the last few months of the year, and I want to get back into drawing.

9.) How are you gonna celebrate New Years Eve?

This passed, but I had egg nog and grape cider to bring in 2016, so that was nice.

10.) Almost done! Time to Tag!

I choose to tag the following: No one. ;p
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: The fan blowing cool air onto my computer
  • Reading: TDL3: Total Drama Letter Starz
  • Watching: Star vs. the Forces of Evil
  • Playing: Animal Crossing New Leaf
  • Eating: Spaghetti
  • Drinking: Tea

Late As Hell Tag

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 11, 2015, 6:26 PM

Normally, I'd go by the rules and give y'all facts along with answering the questions, but I have 52 questions and no facts to share, and I really just want to get this over with so I can move past it, so here we go. (I actually had 65 questions, but one person who tagged I literally don't know, so I'm not doing those questions.)

Note: This is the second to last Tag I'm doing this year, so once I do that one, don't tag me until January 1st at the earliest. Also, this was just an excuse to make a new Journal.

Questions from :iconajinator101:

1. What's your favorite place in the world?

I really don't have one, but there's a lot in this world. Maybe one day I'll travel and find my favorite place.

2. Favorite drink?

Lemon tea with honey or sugar. I love tea. It's amazing. :)

3. Favorite TD fanfic?

My favorite TD fic that I'm reading right now is Total Drama Pahkitew Island Do Over (TDPIDO) by :iconcogreen20:. The whole TDDO series is probably my favorite Total Drama series of stories I've read.

4. What's your main OC you use?

For TDDO, it's obviously Harrison. Outside of TDDO, probably my Rory and Cory. They pop up quite a bit for me, honestly.

5. What is a zucchini?

A zucchini, from what I know, is a long green vegetable that's like the cucumber's cousin that no one knows about.

6. Favorite superhero?

The Flash. I don't know. I think it's his personality.

7. Favorite live-action TV show?

...Okay, don't judge me for this, but I don't really watch a lot of live-action TV shows. Honestly, it's really hard for me to get myself into new shows these days, and I don't really watch much of anything new because of that fact. It's a bad habit, I know.

8. Preferred type of dog?

I really like the way poodles look. They are so fluffy and cute! :love:

9. Tuna or salmon?

Tuna. Tuna is great in sandwiches, while salmon is just disgusting even by itself.

10. Favorite athlete?

I don't have a favorite athlete because I don't give a single fuck about sports.

11. Favorite cartoon?

This changes depending on my general mood or what I'm into at the time, but right now, I think it's probably Gravity Falls. I'm currently getting into Star vs. the Forces of Evil though, and I'm really loving it honestly. :)

12. Favorite movie genre?

I don't really have a favorite genre. I just like whatever I like, I guess.

13. As continuation to the main OC, tell me a little about he/she.

No offense, but I have all of my OC's up in my gallery, so you can just look there. To be fair, some things are going to change soon as I'm going through and cleaning things up.

Questions from :iconcrazed-blue:

1. If you were in a relationship with a Total Drama contestant, who would it be?

I would not be. I don't think I'd be compatible with any Total Drama contestant, and I'm really not interested in dating right now. I'm happy being single.

2. Are you as crazy as me?

Probably not. I'm weird, but you're full-blown Izzy-levels of crazy. ;p

3. Do you have Spotify?

I do not. I'm so far behind with the Spotify game that I could never catch up.

4. Do you know anyone who dares to challenge me as Bridgette's biggest fan?

Not really. I don't know anyone who's like a huge Bridgette fan. At least, I don't know anyone personally that is.

5. If you were in a relationship with another user on deviantArt, who would it be?

I would literally rather not be in a relationship. I'm just not interested in dating anyone right now. 

6. If you could be any Total Drama contestant for the rest of your life in their universe, who would you be?

For the rest of my life? Y'know... I really wouldn't mind being DJ, if only because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be as much of a coward as he has been unfortunately reduced to.

7. Bridgette or Sugar? (casually swings knife around)

Someone is gonna hate me for this answer, but I honestly enjoyed Sugar more than I did Bridgette. Rewatching the show, I've kind of realized Bridgette's pretty generic. I still like her though, don't get me wrong. She's just kind of generic is all. (There's this stigma that finding someone to be boring or generic means you don't like them, or something like that.)

8. What's your favorite idea?

Me and my friend :iconm-pen: made the glorious ship of Corxes. It's really only amazing because of Xerxes because Cory would probably be a bit boring by himself.

9. What is the superior gender?

I hope this question isn't like legit because there really isn't one. (Watch as people debate this in the comments section below...)

10. Do you like pie?

I love pie! My favorite pie is pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. It's amazing. ...Now I want some pumpkin pie... :drool:

11. What's your favorite candy?

I love gummy candies the most, but I think Swedish Fish are my favorite, especially the orange ones. Orange anything tends to be appealing in my opinion.

12. If you were on Total Drama, which contestant would be your best friend?

I think

13. Do you ever want to challenge the authority and chance the odds?

Yeah, no. I'm pretty content not rotting away in a jail cell, thanks.

Questions from :iconponythekidrs:

1. Got any plans for the weekend?

Study for Finals. Joy... :roll:

2. If you could use a Premium skin, which one would you want? Unless you do, then which one do you use?

I have Journal skins, but I haven't used them in so long, so I'll use one with this Journal.

3. Earth, Fire, Water, Wind, Ice, Lightning, Plague, Nature, Shadow, Light, or Arcane? If you have no idea what I'm talking about just pick one.

I pick Lightning or Water because those are the best choices. (I have no idea what is being talked about.)

4. GMO's, or no GMO's?

I prefer no GMO's, but honestly, not everything without GMO's is labelled that it doesn't, so who can really tell, right?

5. Preferred word to use when writing someone screaming? (augh, ahh, aaaaa, skree, etc)

I don't have one. I like to think different characters have different ways of screaming.

6. If you could pick how you die what would you pick?

I would pick something quick like being blown up. Good luck to whoever has to clean up my splattered insides.

7. Are you able to roll anything between your fingers? (pencils, dies, coins) If so, what?

I can't. I've tried pencils and pens, but I just can't get the motion right.

8. Favorite number?

My favorite number is actual eight. How funny is that? :XD:

9. What about favorite kinds of edible chips?

My favorite kinds of chips are Cheetos, any salt & vinegar chips, most kinds of Pringles, and tortilla chips.

10. Last game you played - be it online or in real life?

Last game I played was Animal Crossing New Leaf.

11. Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit... What's the best social media platform in your opinion?

I don't really use social media, but I guess if we're talking about art, then Tumblr. If we're not, then definitely not Tumblr. I guess Twitter, though to be fair, I know nothing about Reddit. ^^;

12. How would you label the genre of the last song you listened to?

K-Pop. I've been listening to a lot of that lately. Help me.

13. Ice cream, or I scream?

Ice cream, though I could make people scream with ice cream.

Questions for :iconmightymewtron:

1. what is your favorite nicktoon? any year. 

I don't really have a favorite, though I will say you get major points for actually remembering 'The Mighty B!'.

2. follow up, what is your favorite cartoon network show? any year. 

Favorite Cartoon Network show? It was Adventure Time, but now I think that will have to go to 'Ed, Edd, n Eddy' again.

3. pegasus, unicorn, or earth pony? 

Pegasus, but not because of MLP. It's because of Digimon. I'm Digimon trash, and I'm in the dumpster.

4. whats your favorite disneyland ride? (or any other amusement park if you want)

I don't really go to amusement parks. I've never been to Disneyland (or Disney World), and most other theme park rides make me sick.

5. whats youre favorite ship in total drama? (or if you dont watch it, of any show ever)

Favorite ship? Canon-wise, I think it'd be AleHeather. Cliché, I know, but they still work. That, and their popularity is kind of justified giving the screentime for them. Fanon, I guess I'll go with... Actually, let me get back to y'all with this one...

6. opinion on homestuck?

Honestly... it's kind of boring to me. I've tried several times to get into it, but I really just don't the appeal.

7. favorite steven universe character? (if you dont watch it, go based off of what you know)

Since I don't watch Steven Universe (don't kill or hate me), I guess I'll go with what I know about Connie.

8. favorite musical song?

"Do You Hear the People Sing?" by Les Miserables.

9. are you ready to go back to school, if you are going to school still?

Well, seeing how this question made no sense both when it was first put up back in August or now, I'll say I'm glad this semester is over.

10. what do you want to do with your life?

Honestly, I just want to see the world and explore and eventually settle down and have some kids. I know I'm asexual and shit, but I'd be willing to fornicate for children.

11. who do you want to slap the most?

I could say who I wanna just bitchslap the fuck out of, but I'm not going to cause problems here, so if you wanna know, note me. I may or may not reveal who it is.

12. what do you think of those minions?

Eh, they're alright. They're better than most generic henchmen, but not that much. And certainly not enough to make a movie out of.

13. is deviantart really that good a website?

It's really not, honestly. Deviantart has been going down for years now, and before you say, "You've only had your account for two years; how would you know?", know that I've been coming here frequently since 2011, two years before I made my account.

  • Reading: TDL3: Total Drama Letter Starz
  • Watching: Star vs. the Forces of Evil

AnOptimisticSnarker's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
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? 

18 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.)

Hey, man! If you read the newest chapter of Total Pokémon Redux, what do you think?
AnOptimisticSnarker Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm probably at most a chapter or two behind. I don't know how many updates I've missed since I last read the story.
xebla Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2016
Well, DA had uploaded chapter 19 last week. His previous update was in October.
