In celebration of deviantART's 15th Birthday... here are my responses to the questionnaire!
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? About 3.5 years!

  2. What does your username mean? Aha, well... A long time ago, I was very passionate about music. I learned the basics of acoustic guitar from a couple of friends and since I was picking it up so quickly, began to teach myself new songs as well. I practiced diligently every single day; it was the first thing I did when I got home from school. I also played some piano and learned the basics of the bass. My goal was to eventually learn the drums as well, and my dream was to tour and perform at concerts as the lead guitarist. So that is where my username came from. Music really was my entire life at one point. Eventually, my priorities changed and I no longer wanted to pursue music as a career but it is still something that I enjoy when I pick up the guitar once in a while.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Studious, shy, consistent.

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right!

  5. What was your first deviation? I like to think I have improved greatly since then. Don't laugh, guys. But here it is: In the Air by musicismylife10027

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Hands down, photography!

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Acrylic painting! I have recently started and it is really fun but I still need work on my brush technique.

  8. What was your first favourite? 
    At The Bottom of Everything by Ameliey
    Ameliey is such a talented portrait artist! I only wish I could be this creative.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Most definitely photography! I like to look at other deviants' photos to see their techniques, and it serves as inspiration for me to take new, better photos and to experiment with different styles.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Mmmm... That's a hard one. Okay, looking at my watch list I can't pick a single one, so here is a list of my top favourite artists, in no particular order, and hopefully you'll see why they are my favourites when you see their photos:
    baravavrova summer breeze by baravavrova
    OliviaMichalskiFriends. by OliviaMichalski
    Kara-aBlossom by Kara-a 

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? gigi50 because she is a kind deviant who always has kind words to say, and OliviaMichalski because her gallery is stunning and I would love to ask her for a photography lesson.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I can't pick out one individual in particular, but I feel I have been impacted a lot my the numerous comments from fellow deviants saying that they love my photos, or that they want to buy my prints when they save enough points, or that my gallery is "beautiful/stunning" etc. These kind comments are very encouraging because I usually don't feel like I stand out among the many wonderful and much more skilled photographers on this site, so getting a comment like that once in a while impacts me to take more photos and improve.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? I don't have a lot of photography tools but I try to make the best of what I have: Canon Rebel T1i, 18-55mm, 55-250mm, 40mm, closeup filters, tripod and a reverse macro adapter ring. I most often use my 18-55mm and a +10 closeup filter.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Most common place? My backyard, because that's where I find most insects and little flowers (and I don't get random people giving me weird looks for crouching on the ground with a camera pointed at something so small they cannot see). However, the most inspirational places for me would be when I travel around, because I get to see scenes that I normally don't get to see at home. For example, I got to see this when I went to China: 
    Like a Mirror by musicismylife10027Waterfall in Sepia by musicismylife10027

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? As many other deviants have said in their questionnaire journals, I will say the same: getting my first Daily Deviation! I was so shocked and it took several days for it to sink in that I got a DD.

Hello everyone! :wave:

First off, my apologies for the inactivity! But I promise to provide you with a legitimate reason for being inactive on dA!

So, this past year has been one with SO many big changes. Last fall I just started my first year of university studies! I am proud to say that I just finished my last exam yesterday and I have officially completed my first year! :happybounce: :happybounce:
I am in a engineering program (specializing in civil engineering), and for those of you who know what university is like, it is not an easy program! With almost 40 hours of school per week, and homework/studying on top of that, I have hardly been able to find time to be creative. :( However, this summer I plan on taking lots of pictures and hopefully investing in some new camera equipment!

I've learned a lot of things this past year, that extend beyond the engineering concepts from class. Here are a few:

1. It is possible to be in a difficult program, without depending on coffee to stay up, and maintaining at least 8 hours of sleep a day. How do I know? Because I just proved it this year. No all-nighters, no coffee, no energy drinks. It just takes good work ethic and time management to ensure that you get enough sleep every night.

2. There will always be narrow-minded people everywhere you go. It's just a fact of life. I thought that by attending a globally recognized school with students from all around the world, the school would be filled with open minded people. There are some great people that I have great conversations with, and then there are the other not-so-great ones. I was very disappointed to find that the vast majority of students in engineering programs make fun of students in other programs, particularly in the arts, claiming that "they'll never get a job" or "arts degrees are useless". Personally, I value the arts just as much as I value other programs. We need to have a balance in this world; can you imagine a world completely FULL of engineers? No. Most would be jobless because we would have exceeded the demand for engineers, and there would be a greater demand for workers in other fields. Variety is key. Some narrow minded people just don't understand this.

3. It's important to socialize. Have some balance in life besides studying. I'm not saying that I follow this advice all the time, as I am quite a shy and somewhat antisocial person. I had a group of friends to hang out with during my first semester, and they were good people. I had a "friend group" so I didn't really interact with people outside this group. But second semester, I socialized more and came to find two wonderful people who I can relate more to (and we'll be roommates next year!). Not saying that my friends in first semester were bad, but they just weren't completely right for me. I'm glad to have found a supportive friend group who have similarities, differences, and overall bring out the best in me.

4. Be thankful. I cannot express how thankful I am for my mom who supported me from such a long distance when I was away. When you live with someone for so long, you kind of take them for granted. Never again will I ever take my mom's wonderful home cooking for granted!

Okay last off, I just want to thank the people who continue to watch me, leave comments, favourites, and llamas. 
Thank you for the birthday wishes, journal features and cake badge! I will try my best to get some new photos up soon!

Just an ordinary girl who loves art (:

I have a passion for photography. I love doing macro shots but I'm a fail at portraits. I don't really specialize in any specific type of photography, just experimenting around with different styles, so you might notice my gallery is "all over the place" (animals, objects, nature, etc).

I try my best to reply to comments. Unfortunately I simply don't have enough time to personally write a "thank you" to everyone who favourites my artwork, but I truly do appreciate each favourite, comment or watch!

And....... Please do not thank me for the fav, watch or llama. You are all very welcome!!!
