Gotta grow up at some stage.

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 9, 2012, 3:53 AM

Ive got news

Well, it seems its time I grew up... Yes thats right :O lol
No really though, Ive been looking into buying a house. YES!! Would you believe it? Me? being all grown up and owning my own house. Lol.
I have been looking into it a LOT lately, there are a lot of pretty cheep houses on the market at the moment.
And the way I see it. Why pay rent, when the money I put into renting a house could go into a mortgage. In the long run, it would cost me less to buy a house and be paying it off, then to be paying rent.
I have looked at a few online, I just need to go have a look at the houses in person, and see what I think of them, and get a feel for them. See which I get a good or a bad vibe from.
Then get a builder to go check it out, and see whats what. :D
Cool aye? Debbie getting all grown up :lol:


Man I have been so busy with work lately, sometimes I dont know if Im coming or going, or Arthur or Martha lol.  Good to stay busy though. Got a lot of shit going on here at the moment so keeping busy with work is a good thing.
I have been thinking of looking into the local High School and seeing if they have any jobs going in the special needs class. I know the lady who lives up the road, she works in that room, and this is her last year. As she wants to stay at home and be with her children more. Also two other teachers there have left too. So they may be looking for new teachers in that room for next year. It would be damn nice to have some normal hour work.
Ive also been asked by a fostering place three times now if I will be a foster parent. As they have been asking around about me ( feels like I was being stalked lol) and they have seen nothing but good things about me, and everyone they have asked, has had nothing but good things to say about me. According to the company I would be a perfect foster parent.  If I have a bit more normal hours, Id love to do that. It would be right up my ally alright.


A close family friend died on the 25th of November.
We were out on a horse trek for the weekend. Out of nowhere, someone yelled out "Brians gone down" Brian was just two horses behind me. We had to go single file though this one part.
I turned around, and saw him on the ground. Jumped off my horse like bloody lighting I tell ya. Never moved so fast in my life. lol
Throw the rains at Dad, and yelled out for him to hold onto Cody ( my horse) Dad didnt even get a chance to catch the rains, and I was gone.
Ran over to Brian, someone else was there trying to put him into the recover position, but had no idea what they were doing. So I took over. he had a slight pulse, and breathing just. I had him in my arms, saying to him the ambos are on their way, and to just stay with us.
Then he took this huge gulp of air.
And it was all over :(
Turned him onto his back and did CPR on him. a nurse who was on the trek came over, and started to help me. But he was gone, :(
First time Id ever had to use my first aid skills on someone, and it bloody happened to be someone I knew personally, and the bugger had to die.
Guttered as :( I went into a bit of shock for a week or so there. I didnt know what to do with myself or anything. Kinda walked around on auto pilot, not knowing what I was doing or anything. That week went by in a big blur.
But he was 75 years old. And he died in no pain, and he died doing what he loved the most, and was around loved ones. his friends and horses. A perfect way out for him.
Just wish I didnt have to be there at the time :(

Please click on the image its self for information on the photo. Thanks :D

My Name is Debbie
Im a country girl from Kiwiland, better known as New Zealand.
Ive always been a country girl. You know the saying, you can take the girl outta the country, but you cant take the country out of the girl.
I guess that has a lot to do with why I love APN ( Animal Plants Nature ) photography so much.
Ive always loved getting out there with the cam, I remember nicking off with my Nanas old B&W one when I was about 4 or 5. Back then not many people had one, Nana would just about have a heart attack when I got my little hands on it hehe.
Thats prob where I got my love for B&W and Sepia photos.

I work for a company called IDEA Services Which for those who dont know, is looking after IHC people or all ages. A job which I love :D

dA Related
I joined dA way back in 2005, that feels like forever now lol.
When I started I was pretty much a viewer I felt I had nothing worth submitted, but slowly I started to submit my photos and my poems too.
I hung out in dAmn all the time back then. After a little bit I was asked to be part of #help . I also hung out in the forums a lot.
I am of course no longer a #help but not longer after I was made a Senior member.
Since being on dA I have made so many new friends, and meet some of the most amazing artists I have ever seen.
I have learnt so many things from so many people.
I hope to stick around a lot longer and learn even more.
I have a few clubs on dA the main one being Black-White-Club if you love B&W art and your not already, why not come have a look see, and see if you would like to join :D

Im a pretty open person, so if you wanna know something, ask me. You will either get an answer or you wont. So you wont be any worse off :P

Current Residence: Between Ohope and Opotiki ( NZ )
deviantWEAR sizing preference: The bigger the better. if its too big.. baggy is the new thin
Print preference: Im not fussy if your gunna get me something, who am I to complain =D
Favourite genre of music: Anything I can sing along to, or tap my foot to.
Operating System: Vista
MP3 player of choice: Foobar, WMP,
Wallpaper of choice: Depends on my mood.
Favourite cartoon character: Winnie the pooh Dahhhhhhh what cave have you been in??
Personal Quote: I used to complain about having no shoes, Until I met a man with no feet!

Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you cannot get out. Finish reading this until it is done! As I said, I am Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes and blood all over my face. I am dead. If you don't send this to at least 12 people I will come to your house at midnight and I'll hide under your bed. When you're asleep, I'll kill you. Don't believe me?"no" Case 1: Patty Buckles Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty. She was sleeping when her TV started flickering on and off. Now she's not with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha! You don't want to be like Patty, do you? Case 2: George M. Simon Hates chain mail, but he didn't want to die that night. He sent it to 4 people. Not good enough George. Now, George is in a coma, we don't know if he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha ha! Now, do you want to be like George? Case 3: Valarie Tyler She got this letter. Another chain letter she thought. Only had 7 people to send to. Well, That night when she was having a shower she saw bloody Mary in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST fright of her life. Valarie is scarred for life. Case 4: Derek Minse This is the final case I'll tell you about. Well, Derek was a smart person. He sent it to 12 people. Later that day, he found a $100.00 bill on the ground. He was premoted to head officer at his job and his girlfriend said yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and him are living happily ever after.The have 2 beautiful children. Send this to at least 12 people or you'll face the consequences. 0 people- You will die tonight 1-6 people- you will be injured 7-11 people- you will get the biggest fright of your life 12 and over- you are safe and will have good fortune

Would like to let you know that this stock,… , was used in my artwork:… for a book cover which I was doing. While at the time I was working on it, I had intended it to be private, I entered a book contest where the Print on Demand publisher would like to display the book if I win.

I've also sold one copy to a friend, non profit. I also own a copy of the book. Not another one will be sold or displayed.

I realize now that you don't allow them to be used outside of DA so I will set the book to private and not be viewable, I deeply apologize and I'm sorry for offending your rules.

The right thing to do though is to come to you and let you I had used it, this was done, and to let know that the book will be set to private immediately. P.S. the location of the image is credited via the url, within this book on the copyright page, page two of the book with thanks.
