A Short Retrospective

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 13, 2015, 11:25 PM

In a week, I'll be losing the star next to my name here. I think I've had it for about 4 years now, and to be honest I don't think I really used it much. I would also get other friends premiums during the annual winter "buy one, get one" sale, but I don't think they quite took advantage of that either. It leads me to believe that I won't miss it that much, but I suppose like all things that you've had for a while you don't realize what you liked about it until it's gone. I think the only thing I'll miss is this nice journal skin with cherry blossoms, but I never really journaled anyway.

It makes me think about how much has changed in this site over the years. I started out wanting to hand around with some people in the Trauma Center fandom, but coming into college I started getting serious about poetry. That was back in the good ol' Version 6 days, which, in the grand scheme of DA wasn't really that long ago. I remember when groups first came out, and Rhyme-and-Reason was one of the first I would frequent, back when it wasn't a ghost town. Back then I was ~reader2951, tilde totally necessary of course. Somewhere along the line I think I bought my first premium and received the coveted asterisk, only to find out I didn't really know what to do with it. Perhaps the best was finding this skin, and being able to change my name here to what it is now, to have a more unified Internet presence.

Since then I've met a lot of friends, had some cool features, read and seen some wonderful art, and the occasional critique or two. I think I'm very content here. People come and go, the site morphs, but the good art that comes out every day is just as good as that which came before it. It's quite a nice place here. Just wanted to air out in perhaps my last cherry blossom journal as *Parsat. I shall miss the blossoms.

Parsat's Profile Picture
Artist | Literature
United States
I'm a disciple of Christ, a USC Trojan, a sonneteer, an administrator on Wikipedia, a Chinese-American, a pianist/violist, a biologist, a trivia buff, an ISTJ, and a scooter enthusiast.

"My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer." --Psalm 45:1

I mostly write fixed form/structural poetry, as well as translations of Chinese poetry. The villanelle is the king of poems, and the sonnet his queen.

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart

I don't think you'd be going ahead with this tag, but I figured you should at least know that you are awesome. You inspired me into writing sonnets, which for me, really has been the biggest achievement for me in 2014. I'm glad you did. :) I look forward to reading more of your works in the future. Stay blessed.

Glad to be of service. Really enjoyed seeing your work in the May Sonnet Challenge for Crowns-of-Sonnets, and trying out Sonnet Tennis with you. :) I also really appreciated your critiques and comments on my work; they're very insightful and provided me with invaluable feedback. Thanks so much, and hope this year will be a fruitful one for you.
