Dear Teen MeYou know what? Even as you, we'd both agree starting this off with a "Dear Timothy" is useless. We both know why I'm here to write this.Dear Teen Me by timmy64
You're gay. It'd probably help to sit you down and explain the mechanics of all of this to you; but, let's face it, you're gonna need a couple of years of denial to sort this out any way. Mum and Dad are okay with it, you know, and these days we're in a stable relationship. It won't be easy though.
I'd love to be able to sit here and say that the next ten years are going to be a walk in the park. I'd love to be able to tell you that it gets better, and that things will run smoothly. They won't. Things will get worse before they get better. Your first relationship, well, he's a drug addict these days. Oh, you will care for him, and I still do; but, you won't stay with him long. Fear will get the better of you, and you'll run. You'll keep running for about two years. You'll get another fling or two, and after a while the damage will start to pile up.

As 2008 comes to a close, join me in taking a walk down memory lane as we recall the deviantART community highlights from the past 12 months.
2008 was a whirlwind of a year with many new features and milestones in the community. We celebrated our 8th, birthday, saw the site move into v6, and embraced the long awaited new message centre. Moderation reporting got a whole lot sexier and

Fogtography #1Fogtography [fawg·ˈtog·ruh·fee]Fogtography #1 by tjparson
1photography in foggy conditions.
Fog, in photography, can present new challenges as well as opportunities to even the most experienced photographer. Light plays differently and so does depth. A photographer can use the elements in fog, day or night, to create some of the most unique photos. Fog itself is quite unique; it often seems two-faced. Fog tends to have a calming side, from the dampening (lol pun) of sound, along with an unsettling side from the sense of aloneness and general eeriness that lingers from being alone in fog (and of course if you're driving: the un-fun side). But, all in all, fog plus photography (minus flash) tends to equal very unique and fun photos.
This is a feature of people who may have made the most of foggy conditions.
