I feel like sharing this story...
So this morning I went into the living room of my house, where there's a screen door that leads to the deck outside. And sitting on the screen door (on the outside, thank God) was by far the biggest and scariest bug I'd ever seen :fear:
It was a giant cicada -- which should already put a picture in your mind. The body of a giant cicada is about as long as your finger, and its wings are even longer. Look it up on Google Images at your own risk.
Then my sister came in through the screen door and I flipped out. I pointed at the screen door and when she saw the bug, she was like "Ohh ewww :stinkeye:" We were just in complete terror until my mom flicked it off the screen door...I couldn't do that to save my life :noes:
We all know there are some pretty screwed-up videos on YouTube, and there's one of a girl EATING a LIVE giant cicada...HOW DOES SHE EVEN TOUCH THE THING?!?!?!?! I COULDN'T EVEN GO NEAR IT!!!!!

Before then, the scariest bug I'd ever seen was what I believe was a black giant horse fly that landed on the arm of a girl who was helping at a cookout when I was in middle school -- then everybody started freaking out. What's the scariest bug you've ever seen? ^^;

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .
:iconroselb-5::iconroselb-5::iconroselb-1::iconroselb-2::iconroselb-3::iconroselb-4::iconroselb-5:

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics at Attleboro Art Museum in Rhode Island.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between. I also sometimes devote half a night or a whole night to staying up to draw or write.

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)

I know it looks like I'm asking for a lot but every bit will help!! I have a new group, Ran-maoFC, and when it gets enough members I would like to have contests for it but I don't have any prizes besides features :( So if you could donate, that would be nice!
