|My newest deviantions...is subject to change at any given moment.|
My name is Missaquaitaine, but I imagine that's a bit of a tongue-twister, so you can call me Missy if you prefer.
Ever since I was very young, I would always be drawing.
Thus, it became a hobby, and a passion, of mine to create whatever was in my head onto the paper. More recently though this has also translated into writing, although that's quite infrequent and often stays up in my head most of the time.

Oh, I guess it would also help if I would tell you about myself a little more.
In a nutshell, I'm a happy bubbly person with too many ideas and not enough time to jot them all down. Asides from art I like to read, listen to music, and spend time with friends and family. I also don't mind a good chat with people on the net, so please know I do not bite! Ha ha.
Asides from the above, have a fabulous day and stay creative!

Pretending can be fun. Sometimes, people love pretending so much they take on a profession where they pretend for a living, like acting, or advertising. If "acting" is the most professional term for "lying", "pretending" is the most gentle term for "lying". It makes one feel a tad less guilty, and even adds a bit of whimsey to whatever lawsuit you're trying to get out of. At some point, you reach an age where pretending becomes either lying or acting. It's the first
