Quotes by partie

I wish I had the time to update this site as frequently as I once did, the energy to code as I previously was, the time to manage all the hobbies and passions I once had before. Going through my old quotes and my (multitude) of old profiles, I watched how different I was as a person when I first joined in 2011 to my most recent work in 2015. It was an interesting 4 years to be frank, with me being a "quirky" teen at the ripe age of 13 trying to make quotes that seemed to describe all the teen angst I was going through at the time.

I learned a lot about a hobby that I wish I had let flourish a bit more. I didn't realize at the time that if I pushed myself harder than just out of fun that I could possibly make this into something more. I enjoyed having a creative outlet that fit into the technological advances at the time. Witty, too, was groundbreaking for the rest of us preteen folk. We all had energy to share with others, regardless of how silly or lighthearted it was at times.

It was great to meet other likeminded individuals who shared the same passions, same music, same interests. We all were similar in so many ways yet came from different countries, different lifestyles, different families. I intended to stay in touch with many of you all but as usual, life takes it's toll and we continue to what we were placed on this earth to do.

For a bit about myself -- I am now in university and almost finished. I have taken in interest in sociology and helping those who are not as privileged as myself to be able to navigate this world. I also have a new found interest in being active and just getting out and enjoying the world beneath my feet. I still enjoy listening to obscure music every now and then. I still enjoy reading books. I, however, only have the time to open my laptop to write essays and check whatever is required by my professor. There are instances where I wander over to Witty and see if anyone else is still active. (Surprise! There are a few.)

I do plan on growing my coding knowledge again. I won't be coming back to code here but maybe you'll be able to identify me on what platform I do decide to take up. That's the least I can hope!

I hope everyone's own endeavors are going as well as possible. While Witty's popularity has lessened, we can be happy that our own achievements our flourishing. This isn't an end, but rather a beginning for many of us who are beginning to enter our own adulthood. Maybe one of us will create the Witty successor.

With my last, real, fully designed quote being in 2015, I think it's safe to say that my quote making will not be ignited again anytime soon. So, officially, here I am, signing off.
Eventually —
something you love is going to be taken away. And then you will fall to the floor crying. And then, however much later, it is finally happening to you: you're falling to the floor crying thinking, "I am falling to the floor crying," but there's an element of the ridiculous to it — you knew it would happen and, even worse, while you're on the floor crying you look at the place where the wall meets the floor and you realize you didn't paint it very well.
I had to go through a time of isolation in order to come to terms with who and what I was, as distinguished from all the things I'd been told I was. [...] I remember feeling that I'd come through something, shed a dying skin and was naked again. I wasn't, perhaps, but I certainly felt more at ease with myself. And then I was able to write.
James Baldwin, 1984 Paris Review interview
 
 
 
I have a duty to speak the truth as I see it and share not just my triumphs, not just the things that felt good, but the pain, the intense, often unmitigated pain. It is important to share how I know survival is survival and not just a walk through the rain.
Audre Lorde
go easy with my baby
Though this goes without saying, I think it needs to be talked about and legitimate lines need to be set as to what defines "inspiration" and blatant imitations of people's work.

Everyone can clearly understand stealing or "jocking".
"JUST BECAUSE YOU CHANGE A WORD OR TWO SLIGHTLY DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT JOCKING"
Now, applying that to coding....It's when a user takes a code (or more often, the whole code) and removes the credit and even goes as far as to claim it as their own work. It's quite easy to understand that it's inexcusable and extremely rude to the maker.

However, a more foreign concept to everyone is the "inspiration" idea.
But partie, you should be flattered that someone thinks your artwork or your work is pleasant!
While you could claim that it should be "flattering" that someone doesn't have enough creativity to come up with something on their own, it's still very disrespectful to blatantly make a mock version of someone's work without attributing anything to the original owner.

Taking a small idea and attributing is reasonable, however making an almost-exact replica can still be the same as jocking ones work. Though you coded it by yourself, you still didn't have enough creativity behind the idea to claim that you made it all by yourself.

What makes a person a good "layout maker", "format maker", or anything artistic for that matter, is that they have the driving force behind them; that is, they have the creativity.
Sure, you can code and be great at it, but you have no creativity whatsoever and that's only going to hurt you in the long run.
 
Before you say yes,
get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk — you'll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can't change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn't just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he's out of it now, you're going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn't change that some people just don't fit.
I have a million things
to talk to you about. A million things we have to talk about. All I want in this world is you. I want to see you and talk. I want the two of us to begin everything from the beginning.
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
you made me feel
ashamed for leaving
you and i cant
understand how
because you said
you loved me too.
Everything I touch...
only goes up in flames.
