11:55 PM, PST.

It may be almost the end, but I still think I should leave a small thing to honor those who perished on this day. It's even more important considering that the alignment is perfect, right down to the day. Sunday, Dec. 7th, the day Pearl Harbor was attacked by the air forces of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

This is not a hate journal, nor it is a debate regarding the conflict. It is a simple writing meant to honor the people who died in the attack, and to remember them, for the fallen should never be forgotten. So do I ask for a moment of silence and a prayer from those who read this journal.

..........................................................................................................

This may not be the best tribute to the fallen of Pearl Harbor, but at least it is respectful. I truly respect them in all regards. In honor of the 7th.

Farewell.

My fellow watchers and deviants, beware.

We all know of the failed SOPA and PIPA bills that were attempting to get passed, but we may have overlooked another agreement that unlike the previous two, was done almost entirely in secret. Very little is known about this proposed bill, known as the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership); it's thanks to WikiLeaks revealing some portions of the agreements that we know about this. I've done my own study, and found that it's a trade agreement between the US and a few other countries. Essentially, it would help open up markets to lesser countries, provide new job opportunities to citizens, and promote economic growth.

But if this is going to be a new agreement that could help the global economy, then why has it been done in secret? From what I've seen, this TPP agreement has been negotiated behind-the-scenes, away from the public eye. And it seems there's a good reason for it. While there appear to be several problems for numerous industries if this agreement gets approval, it'll have serious damages to us Internet users. This agreement has several rules and regulations that seem quite draconian, not to mention SOPA-like in nature. More stringent copyright laws, expansion of copyright laws regarding intellectual property (years of copyright could be extended past the current norm), and even treat copyright infringements as criminal offenses.

The last one to me seems overkill, and in my opinion, TPP is another SOPA in disguise, but with a far greater reach. However, I warn you to not believe in everything I've written and to find out for yourself. Make your own research on this agreement and if you find it appalling, then let others know. I'll provide links for you below that have info on this. For now, farewell.

NOTE: The title above doesn't mean I had a number of really bad days, just one. It's just a good way to introduce this really bad day I had.

In storyteller mode: "It all began early in the morning. The sun was high, the skies were blue, and all was awakened for the start of a new day. I prepared to take my younger sibling to his school and we left home for the great world. The traffic light in front of me was green, all was secure, and I prepared to make my turn. And then.......out of the vast nothingness.........emerges a great danger. A car, its driver ignorant of the scene, continues traveling forward, unaware of the change in traffic. Only at the last moment did she see me, but by then..........it was too late.

I remember it well: the cry of my brother, my sudden notice of the gray car about to hit me, my words of shock saying "OH SHIT! OH......!" All this in the span of a few seconds. And then........CRASH!!!!!!!!

The approaching car couldn't stop in time, and she struck the left side of my car, destroying the framework, ruining the front left tire and damaging its axle. Yet the damage was not severe; the engine still ran, and my brother and I survived unscathed. We were most fortunate. Good fortune favored us that day.

I felt the surge of adrenaline before, and I now felt its aftershock. My body was shaking, I was in complete disbelief, and then I quickly reacted and drove to a safe place to park so I could exchange information with the other driver. It all went smoothly well, and soon, business was concluded.

Later in the day, I walked to work, seeing as I had no method of transportation, but my workplace was not far from home. So did I travel on foot, still mulling over the morning event.........and never thinking for once that I would be witness to three more near-incidents this day.

The first started with me as an unintended target. The light yet again was green, no cars were moving, and the crosswalk was clear. I began my walk, watching a car approach the left-hand turn.........the driver did not stop. Completely ignorant of the road ahead of her, she continued. I only noticed her at the last moment and said, "What the hell!?" She then saw me and hit the brakes. No injury, no damage, but yet again, I was almost run over. Yet all was well.

Later during my work, I was witness to another near-collision. Two cars traveling in opposite directions were so close, and yet neither driver saw each other. They nearly collided, swerving at the last moment and thus saving themselves. But it was the final near-incident, the third, that was the most shocking of all. Not even my accident could compare to this one.

During my work, I beheld a young little girl, probably near three to four years of age, run at full speed out of the place where I work, her mother in pursuit. The girl does not stop, and to my shock, she continues to run, actually running out into the busy parking lot, where she is nearly hit by two cars who hit the brakes in time. She was fortunate, but again, the shock of seeing that left me wondering, "God, what a crazy day."

So yes, that was my day, and it was truly one of surprises, near-misses, and just plain shock."
End storyteller mode.

All of it true, my friends. Yesterday, I suffered a car accident where a driver didn't stop when the light was red, and she hit me as I was making my turn. Then those three things happen later in the day. I mean, wow, what a freaking crazy day. I felt drained when I got home afterwards. But at least I'm fine.

There are definitely days in our lives when all goes to hell, and there are varying levels of completely hellish days for each of us. This one, though, tops all the hellish days I've had in my life.

Well, enough about that, and now to business. I have a special project in the works that I've been working with for some months now. It's already at the halfway point, and will be nearing completion soon. This project has important significance to me because I don't think any artist on dA has ever attempted such a feat. And no, it's not to get recognition (well, not completely), but it mainly because I wanted to go into an "art binge" so to speak, and I've been making art, writing, and photos like crazy. You'll know more later, in due time.

For now, though, this is farewell, a good-hearted farewell.

I'm a little surprised, too, that I could take this accident and write it in story-like form...........interesting...........

P.S. There is one other incident that comes close to the accident I had yesterday. I was driving along the freeway during a stormy, rainy day, and being really careful with my driving. Yet both en route to my destination and on the return trip home, I was witness to no less than SIX.........SIX car accidents! And the sixth one was the worst; a whole car was totally flipped over.

EDIT: 12:32 PM, PST: It is done. The insurance company has declared my car a total loss and thus granted my family some compensation for the vehicle. Its final resting place is the junkyard, and so as a self-appointed minor Tech-adept of the Adeptus Mechanicus technocracy, I have performed the final words of thanks and blessing to the sacred machine spirit of the car. The Rites of Ending have been performed, the car's spirit blessed and soothed for the last journey, its parts blessed for new life and service with other vehicles. It is hard to give final sacrament to a holy vehicle of the Machine God, a vehicle that served me and my family well for more than a decade. But its life is done, its machine spark spent, and so there are just the final rites and rituals of machine-death to complete.

Finis Machina. May the Machine God take the vehicle's sacred machine spirit and bless it with a new body. May the Machine God give due justice to the tech-heretics in turn. Opus Machina.

I'm very artistic, caring, and spiritual. I especially enjoy science fiction and, believe it or not, I do believe Atlantis was real. But I do believe in a balance between the real and fantasy worlds. I don't believe we should be addicted to anything (except art) Besides loving Sailor Moon and Warhammer 40,000 (specifically the Space Marines), I enjoy Star Wars, House, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, and many other cool genres of film. I also enjoy all kinds of music that take my fancy. I don't listen to heavy metal or death metal or rap. I consider them too primal (no offense to my viewers) I practice yoga and Buddhist meditation and I read much about mythology, conspiracy theory, and Atlantis. I love the mysteries of Atlantis. Could it have been real?

Current Residence: Terra, the holy realm of the Imperium
Favourite genre of music: New Age and trailer music
Favourite style of art: professional art
MP3 player of choice: iPod shuffle
Wallpaper of choice: Space Marines and Sailor Moon
Personal Quote: Do not worry about the past or future. Remain in the present, in the here and now, and you will live

Certainly. Go right ahead. Many thanks for the print suggestions, too. I'll consider it. Also, I'd like to hear some feedback regarding my order of Senshi, specifically the biography that I wrote on them. Of course, I'm assuming you haven't read it yet.
