Me, being a super-inactive Journal writer I am, decided to break a chain of posts I thought of, but never actually typed to upload here, due to the birthday of DA! :iconnyappyplz:

So here's my DA story unique, because it's mine, and pretty usual in general :D

I knew about DeviantArt for quite some time before joining, but it seemed so complicated, that I created an account only somewhere around end of August 2009, when I was 21 and just returned from the USA. I went there for Work&Travel Program while being a student majoring in language studies. Lots of staff happened during these days, but I always recall them with warmth and nostalgia. I met a lot of great people, met friends I still keep in touch with AND had one of the worst experiences EVER on my way back - with delayed flights, flight rebookings to other airports and... ah, no, that one time my luggage was lost happened another time. :XD: Well, anyway instead of having two connected flights I went from New York to Chikago, then to Heathrow airport (UK) where I was directed to the wrong terminal and after this to Frankfurt airport (Germany). Only from there I managed to get back to Russia.
This over I figured making an account won't be more difficult, so I finally joined. :giggle: 

Back then I was totally in Naruto fandom and majority of my submissions reflected that. I uploaded works without much system and probably wouldn't be able to understand much (even the Folder thing) if not for the help of my friends. :D

My avi was also made by a friend (Odango-datte that is :heart: ). I use the same avatar ever since and not intend to change it. :D The artwork I chose for avi isn't mine, and I still don't know the author of it which is a pity. ^^;

It is surprising how it's almost 5 years now that I'm with DA. Now I can't even imagine how would I be without - so many ways of inspiration, communication and mutual support with other deviantartists it brought to my life. :iconheartbeatplz:

Today, celebrating the website's birthday, I'd like to thank people who created it, and all of us sharing our art here, and express high hope that it will stay with us for years and years ahead! :iconloveloveplz:

Hey! Would you be interested in doing an rp?
RinaIzumo Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hi there! :D

Sounds really nice, but unfortunately I'm busy almost all the time (two jobs, Japanese classes and I started going to gym since july), so I'm hardly ever home ^^; Besides I have artwork to attend to. Sometimes the fact I can't even find time for drawing lately kills me and actually I'd feel really bad to interfere with other people playing.

Great thanks for taking your time and spending it on watching my artworks and writing about your impressions so thoroughly and nicely! I never ever imagined getting so much appreciation one single day :iconheartbeatplz:
To be absolutely frank I was depressed lately due to some circumstances and you've just saved me from that. Thanks a lot for being there for me this time of all days :iconaawplz:

Aw! You're welcome! I'm glad my words had some meaning! Yes, I've had days like that. All of us have up and downs.
But I'm glad my little comments helped to cheer you up! You really have very beautiful things!
