The smallest moments in Life hold the most joy.
They make the starkest Memories.
Those who lead fast-paced, "fun" lives, often die miserable and full of Regret.
Cherish Love and Friendship, do not allow words or paper or petty things to divide your heart and your loved ones.
We are Flawed; allow for misunderstandings and lower your Pride.
Apologies do not mend, but open up the door to mending; you only have to be Courageous enough to step through.
And when Life seems at its lowest, when you are most miserable, your Heart is open to the greatest Change.
If Adventure comes knocking, do not be afraid. He teaches lessons, but is often kind. Make sure to answer the Call.

Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at the stars because we are human? What would man think, if he knew the stars gazed back?

Philosophical musings. Ignore the ramblings of an ignorant, jaded mind.
  • Listening to: Rule the World- Take That
  • Playing: with the notion that life is pointless
  • Drinking: green tea

Hiya, my name's Courtney and this is my cat Guiness :meow:
Overview- I love to draw (duh), read, play with fire, and be a Jedi ninja. I'm really into Bleach, FMA: Brotherhood, Naruto, Rurouni Kenshin, and Hetalia. I'm also a pretty serious gamer. (faves include COD, AC I, II, B, and R, and Naruto games. I also do Sims 3, Spore, Zoo Tycoon, and Skyrim on PC) xD
About my art- I've always had a "knack" for drawing and doodling, but what really inspired me was manga and anime. When I was introduced to it, something just clicked in my head and I started seriously drawing. Naruto is my true muse, and Itachi is usually centerstage. I love his tragic hero character. Other than the shameless fanart of him, art from me tends to gingerly dance around borderline-cliche monsters and unoriginal characters. I draw what comes, and am steadily working to master my new tablet and Photoshop. :)

Current Residence: Missing-nin don't reside anywhere..
