MFW storm off-season is terribly boring. I was very spoiled with such a killer storm season this year!!
Well, I suppose that with these 'statuses' now available on DA that eliminates the need for a journal, which is good, because I definitely don't blog like I did when I was a teen: longwinded, boring and full of angstiness nobody cared about but me and some friends. This is a lot nicer. Anyway, since it's the off-season for chasing, expect uploads of all sorts of 'tography.
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: Adagio for Strings
  • Reading: House of Leaves - MZD
  • Watching: Breaking Bad Season 3 (again)
  • Playing: MINECRAFT
Ugh. Almost 2 months post chase season and I'm bored.
What do chasers do on their off season?

Nothing.
We do nothing.
We're too busy looking at the sky and hoping.

I'm a 25 year old stormchaser living in Arizona- I know, what's there to chase in AZ? We don't have many tornadoes, true, but we have some crazy monsoon seasons every year that produce dramatic and dangerous storms all the same. Chasing is my lifelong passion and dream, and I'm glad to be doing it now not only as my hobby but my career. I'm currently in school, getting my degree in research meteorology and thermodynamics, and I am half of TEAM DOC, an Arizona- based stormchase team. We stream live on TVNWeather, ChaserTV and SevereStudios. Severe weather photography is my life, and I plan to live it to the fullest.

**I have had this account since I was about 14 years old. I have kept some of my old drawings from my old use of this account on here for personal archival reasons, and either removed or stored the rest. Apologies to my followers who may have had some of those in favorites, but it's my time to move forward from my teen years. I have kept some, though, because I can't bear to part with them. Thanks for understanding, and sorry if it disrupts favorites lists and things.**

Thanks for the note. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you until now. :) I'm glad I was an inspiration to anyone, really. 

Don't be afraid to contact people you admire, either. You'd be surprised the kind of correspondence it yields. :V

Yeah, you're right. I probably should've asked you, and Emo. It was just a spur of the moment idea and I get impatient easily and... blah...

I'm gonna take down the 'prologue,' because it doesn't actually have ANY of my work on it, and I eventually may use it in another form in a kind of epilogue.

But thanks for being decent about it. People who had much less right to be angry were being much more of jerks.

I regret to inform you that another user has taken to attempting to merge one of your drawings with one by ~Emo-Hellion/~TINAciousArtist.

He will only remove it if you as the artist request him to do so. :/

I've just read a journal containing the note you've been posting.

I just wanted to say thank you for letting people know about such an important and disturbing issue. :heart:

I just read a note about PinkSourLioness. First off, that is truly disturbing, especially in what seemed like a safe little community like DA.

Since you have his address and others could prove that he has sent those notes to minors, why don't you call the police?
