5: Gerald's Worst FearDo I even need to answer this question? What do you think? I'm livin' in a hood, a place where some people are doing alright and others are barely getting by. Everybody, though, got problems, and these problems get some unwanted attention from cops.
So my worst fear is being confused with one of these people and getting killed all because of some black guy quota they keep saying doesn't exist. I know it exists. Why would you let the junkie-looking white guy walk and not the clean-cut black man during patrol? My buddies from school never got messed with by the police, but I got harassed once a week during the good times, once a day during the bad. I missed school four times in high school because I got pulled in. A teen walking to school in his basketball uniform totally matches the description of a 6-foot-ten, 300-pounder from a robbery, doesn't he?
I got family down South who told me to leave, and I really thought about it. When I started taking night classes and working and all those
UPDATED VERSION OF MY INITIAL JOURNAL ENTRY
Greetings, my name is William. I'm not giving my last name for privacy purposes. I also don't want anyone who doesn't already know me to know what I look like.
I've visited this site since 2006 but between early 2008 and August or most likely September of last year I was absent due to personal issues but started visiting this site again in September and became a member then.
Long story short, I'm Jehovah's Witness and proud of it, and do not want to change, politically neutral, have Asperger's Syndrome, like trains and railroad crossings, especially with flashing lights and gates, hence my username.
My two most favorite cartoon characters are Timmy Turner from "Fairly Odd Parents, my most favorite cartoon ever," and Tim Possible from "Kim Possible."
Other favorite cartoons, or cartoons I just like, are Arthur, Maya and Miguel, Jimmy Neutron, Braceface (only episodes that feature Josh Spitz, he's my most favorite character in the show), Underdog, Calliou (yes I like Calliou even if other people don't,) 64 Zoo Lane, Angelina Ballerina, Spongebob Squarepants, Catscratch, Super Why, Bubble Guppies, the Simpsons, The Weekenders, Fillmore, Rugrats All Grown Up, and more. I like animated shows better than live-action shows.
My top three favorite animals are rabbits (my number 1 favorite animal!), cats, and turtles.
I have mental, emotional, and psychological issues including depression and anxiety. And like Nonny from the Bubble Guppies, I have a boring personality (not because of my religion which I won't talk about unless you ask me by message) but I don't have a lot of interests and I'm asocial so nothing personal but I prefer not to have any social interaction with anyone. I didn't join this website to make friends or enemies or to be liked or disliked. I used to be a very open person but now I'm a generally closed person.
(ADDED DECEMBER 29, 2015) I also have physical health problems, or so it seems I have. They're not that bad but I get tired very easily and I often get sick. I have to deal with coughing spells, cold-like symptoms, headaches, sometimes fatigue, backaches, and having to keep my balance and sometimes I move very slow or have to walk carefully. I even have times I cannot stand up for very long and end up having to sit down. I use a walking stick and a wheeled walker. Sometimes I have to use my walking stick and even my walker just to get around my own apartment, but don't always need to. And I take my walker just about everywhere I go now. Though I'm in my early 30s now, I'm already having health problems and feeling like an old man.
Another thing, I may have autoimmune diseases. My mother has it (she has lupus among other things) and autoimmune diseases run in my maternal part of the family and I may be starting to feel it. In fact I started getting sick after my 28th birthday (originally because I was underweight, now I don't know what the deal is). Sometimes I have high blood pressure. I'm also on Vitamin D pills.
Hopefully I do not have Multiple-Sclerosis like one of my aunts did and she's dead now, and hopefully I don't have ALS either.
I haven't been diagnosed with anything but if I ever find out, hopefully I'll remember and be strong enough to let you know what I have.
But my physical health seems to be failing me. Some days are better than others though and thankfully I'm still able-bodied and can still do things like walk, run even, shop, take the bus, cook, but some things are not as easy to do anymore. This will also affect my drawing, or whether I feel like doing so or not, same with writing fanfiction.
I'm also not giving out my email address, home address, or number, so please don't ask. Unless it's strictly for business purposes.
I'm also part of these websites:
Fanfiction.net: www.fanfiction.net/u/5529826/T… Currently my pin-name there is TimmyTurnerFan
My Arthur Wikia Page: arthur.wikia.com/wiki/User:Wil…
My Fairly Odd Parents Wikia Page: fairlyoddparents.wikia.com/wik…
My username is WillTheArthurandBusterFan5050 on Wikia.
I'm also part of Wrong Planet, but I don't visit this website as much. I go by TimmyTurnerFan1 on this website and this is my page: www.wrongplanet.net/forums-pro…
I like to draw pictures and write cartoon fanfiction and song-fiction, and I also like to do self-inserts (in stories only)
Also, I know male fairies on Fairly Odd Parents get pregnant but I do not like that at all and am totally against it. I cannot stand the sight or the thought of male pregnancy, including fairies. I will instead be doing artwork of female fairy pregnancy, for myself and for anyone who wants to see pictures of Wanda and other female fairies pregnant, and those against male fairy pregnancy and I don't care what anyone says about it. Well actually I do, I don't like to sound haughty or prideful, that's wrong, I do care but I will not be swayed by what people say about female fairy pregnancy.
I really hated Fairly Odd Baby and that Cosmo gave birth, that disturbed me very much, I regret watching that movie and I never want to see it again and I want no support in it. I don't care if male fairies get pregnant, well I do but I cannot control what happens on Fairly Odd Parents, but I can control what I put in my fan-art and fanfics and I will NOT draw pictures of male fairies or other male creatures, not even sea-horses, being pregnant, as natural as that is. If you want male fairy pregnancy, you're going to have to get it from someone else.
(ADDED DECEMBER 29, 2015): I am sorry to say this but I do not take requests, at least not generally. I mean I would, but I couldn't promise you I'd fulfill it, plus I cannot handle a lot of people making requests for me all in a short amount of time. Plus I have other obligations, including my spiritual obligations, and I need to make sure I have a life outside of Deviant Art, although this place can be addictive and I do need to try to have some away time, and I can be gone for a week, three weeks, I'm likely going to start staying away for more than a month.
But I prefer not to take requests. I don't mind doing artwork for other people and I do take suggestions, and you can leave it on my message wall or in a comment in one of my deviations and I'll see what I can do. I might take you up on your suggestion, just be prepared to get a "No" answer.
I will also try not to make requests myself since I'm not taking any, although I'll admit it is tempting to make requests and I am curious as to see how you guys do things and I guess now you think the same as me toward me, and that I understand. But I will try not to make requests but will leave suggestions and it's of course your decision if you take it or not.
But please respect my wishes, and I will make sure I do the same for you. And please do not be pushy with me, I work on and post artwork out of my own time, effort, and energy and there will be times I won't always feel like doing artwork or writing fanfiction though I'd like to. Plus remember, I have health issues as mentioned above and that will affect my doing of artwork and sometimes I'll be too tired to do artwork.
I do apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused any of you. But let's face it, we're all humans and we all have our limitations, some more than others. (End Update)
One more thing: I refuse to read and respond to rude reviews, I won't stop you from leaving them but I will not read them or respond to them. And I don't like fighting or arguing or getting into confrontations with or causing trouble for anyone and I don't like upsetting or annoying anyone on purpose. I like to be nice to others, and though it's not easy, even if others are not nice to me. I mean I don't like everybody, who does? But I don't hate anybody either.
I'm very sorry if I sounded like a jerk, I didn't mean to, I like being nice to others, but as nice as I want to be, I had to be firm. And that's not easy to do.
That will be all I'll say of myself. I will add more if needed. Thanks for reading.
