Fantastic white wolves - PHOTOSHi!
Nobody caughed the kiriban?
What a pity
Will, will, where are you?
I do not mean any guy (although Will Riker is kind of cute ), but my own will - I can not get into losing weight again, although I now have the perfect chance to continue! I hate my weak will so much, how comes that I can not kick myself to continue, especially when I see it IS possible? :/ nah, I am so angry at myself. Go, stupid Woxys! There are still 20 kilos of fat which wait to be removed.
Mhhhhhm, I really need to start, as even the current state makes me feel much happier than the state a year ago.
Sorry for talking about this issue a lot, it is not easy, although I have already managed to lose some 20 kilos. And now other 20 should go away! It is just hard, because yes, it is nice I lost so much, but I am still so terribly overweight I have so many motivation clothes, but I obviously need a big kick to continue. GOOO, blonde, go but thank you for your support, you are awesome.
Guilty and adorable baby animals - PHOTOSHi!
At first, thank you for very interesting discusion under my last journal - although I did not reply to every comment, be sure I read every single one! do not be afraid, I definitely do not judge USA and its citizens through some reality shows here in the Czech republic we also have really stupid shows and so, I think it is a world epidemy I always keep in mind that USA is huge country with a large scale of people of all the qualities some of you said they are ashamed to be Americans - I do not think there is a reason for it, as your country has f.e. many good universities or scientists!
I had a bad day today. I got totally stressed (I can not say why - maybe because of my stupid diploma thesis?) and when I get stressed, I eat. Holy mother, I ate such a crap today, that I feel really guilty and if I did not feel a strong resistance against it, I would like to kick myself to threw it all away I ate some caramel cream I prepared for a cake I made, then I ate TH
:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOSHello,
I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different
The first few photobooks have been already shipped!
P.S.: still exercising, still riding a bike (two days, then a pause), still eating 5x a day. I have problems with drinkin
Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOSHi people!
Once more sorry for low activity. Thesis, thesis. Thesis. Thesis. DIES.
Today a white tiger in Czech ZOO Liberec attacked a young guy (he was on practise, not a visitor), who was saved thanks to bravery of two female keepers who hit the cat with some bucket to get his attention. The tiger escaped from the exhibit, so three people, all of them injured by the tiger, stayed inside the cage. The tiger was shot with some drugs and went limp. Fortunately, this whole accident seems to have a happy end, injuries are not severe and the tiger has not been harmed. Just wow, huh... Drama!
Finally a feature for Kiriban winner and then some animal photos. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, so I can finish my thesis soon. Thank you!
Amazing SNOW LEOPARDS on snow - PHOTOSHi,
thank you for kind voluntary donations for free calendar (http://woxys.deviantart.com/art/Animal-photocalendar-2012-FOR-FREE-269531520) I really appreciate it!
Kiriban winners will be featured next time, ok?
Today I post photos of my favourite cats, snow leopards. All were taken in ZOO Jihlava with Canon Powershot S5 IS. I still have some sharp photos of nice moments, which I somehow "saved for better occassion". Ironically, I now do not feel like posting them, because although they are sharp and bright, they do not have SLR quality of shots taken with my SLR camera. There are also some very cute poses of baby snow leopard, so I might still post them later. I will consider it.
Nah, bad mood here.
And thank you for every , of course!
Some personal news + wonderful animals - PHOTOSHi
Thanks for your support, I feel better now
The bad / sad issue with the stubborn person I love is not fixed, but at least it seems to improve. I am afraid it can never be absolutely ok, which makes me feel sad for that person. You know, you offer a hand, which is refused, while this person wants you to offer a hand, just in a different way, but he refuses to say which way. Mhm. As I say, it brings me down a bit, because this person is sad and I have always done my best to help. The bad thing is, there is no 100% solution. At least it seems to get better and I am grateful for it, although it is kind of difficult to forget some things which have been said and which somehow hurt
As I said, the ZOO visit on Friday made me very happy to be honest, I came to Brno so tired and hungry, that I joined my family in a restaurant (TVD, you remember Richard, right? ) and ate incredibly big portion of pretty unhealthy food for dinner but I do not regret, it was delic
ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!
Kiriban was caught and the winner will be featured soon
I also passed all your comments and compliments (on the last journal's photos) to my parents, they were very pleased and thanked you so thanks!
This weekend I spent in mountain and I visited one of my favourite ZOOs, Dvur Kralove nad Labem. I was a bit disappointed that they moved cheetahs (I did not see them at all), because this ZOO was very good for taking photos of them. They also moved fennec foxes from very photographer friendly enclosure which allowed the foxes to enjoy some sun light into a nocturnal indoor pavilion which is very dark and you can watch the foxes only from above, so I am afraid I lost this place for fennec photos I also did not manage to take good photos of baby tigers and baby leopard although I tried a lot. It seems that my lens refuses to focuse, which scares me I admit I could take some 70 000 photos with it, but... do not die, 55-250 IS! I can not be without photography!
Bitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOSHi
I used my a bit higher (but still pathetically low) self-confidence to meet another dA member - this time it was Shadow-and-Flame-86, lovely young scientist from Scottland, where she studies marine mammals! It was just perfect, she is very nice person, we had fun (at least me ). I am really glad we met and could chat a lot about her work, ZOOs and animals in general
What was the biggest attraction? Giant pandas? Wolves?
No! Those were squirrels
ZOO Vienna is totally full of wild but tame squirrels. And by full I mean that they are everywhere in a forest part of the ZOO! People feed them with nuts, so they come VERY close to you, they even run to humans, following them and begging I was ready for this and I prepared a sack of wallnuts for me and Shadow-and-Flame-86 to have some fun. It was amazing one squirrel bit me when she took a nut from my fingers - I was rude to hold it too tightly, I think XD other squirrel climbed me chest, other one my
Wonderful animals - PHOTOSHi,
last time I posted photos from ZOO and Aquarium Berlin, today I post photos from Tierpark Berlin - hehe, yes, this city has two big ZOOs!

12, KIRIBAN is close, troll, wolves on snow-PHOTOSHi!
At first - there is a new kiriban - catch my 866 666 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note to win a feature
(no feature for animal abuse, porn or art-thieves).
At second - I lost 12 kilos it means I need to lose 20 another killos to have NORMAL weight. Well, I am on a good way, I just need to try harder. 12 kilos are nice, but not nice enough if you consider the time. I am still satisfied, because I think I mostly lost fat and not muscles, which is great I will do my best to lose another 10 kilos faster. Let's give it try ok? I will do my best to lose another 10 kilos until the end of October (I do not want to go to quickly. To lose weight fast is definitely not a good way, because then you get a lot of fat back and you lose muscles...).
I went to buy some present for my sister's nameday (which is today and we had a cake, OH! and because my job's colleague is also Martina, we had another cake, OH! I think I will eat gras
Wonderful wolves + cute wolf pups - PHOTOSHi!
Oh, nobody caught the kiriban again?
Plans for next week:
1) to finally make a ZOO photography guide
2) as the school term started, I need to deal with my final thesis (and you know how MUCH I hate it)
3) to clean some data from computer
4) to lose 1 Kg
Special feature for my best friend Allerlei: I am with you, pal
Failing horribly + white wolves - PHOTOS + kiribanHi,
uaaaaaah, I will hardly have that practical part of my thesis finished tomorrow!
I would need to write FIFTEEN pages tonight (it is 1:10 AM here) and 20 pages tomorrow.
Kiriban: 833 333!
If you catch my 833 333 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note, you win a feature! (no feature for porn or animal cruelty)
PEOPLE, I have a small request! Czech ZOOs currently have a contest - they are fighing to get people vote for the most beautiful baby animal born in 2012.
Can you, please, look at this facebook page ===> http://www.facebook.com/uniezoo/app_129511740507349 and vote for BABY DONKEY EMA from ZOO Děčín?
ZOO Děčín is a tiny but very nice ZOO, I would love to suport them somehow - and they are close to victory!
Only Dvur Kralove is closer, but I do not like this ZOO for their terrible marketing and bad attitude to visitors...
I bet people from ZOO Děčín would be happy if they won!
Fresh wolf PHOTOSHello!
Uah, what a night
I was so excited with free international shipping offered by DA, that I shopped like crazy, ordering so many things I hope they will REALLY arrive and that I will REALLY have shipping for free.
Also, I see that some of you used that offer too, because some people bought stuff I sell - THANK YOU for every shopped item, people, thank you, really! I have already sold several mugs and also 3 calendars, which makes me really happy! I wish I could see, how the printed calendar looks, so I thought about buying it too, but honestly, I would not use it that much haha, from some 5500 points, I have 500 left now
Do not forget that I now sell new FOX MUG -
My amazing cousin had to travel to Ostrava today, he had some important meeting there. And he was nice enough to take me to Olomouc, which is on the way. So I could visit my most favourite ZOO and amuse myself with watching animals the light was really bad,
Relief, kiriban and ZOO Brno - brand new PHOTOSHi people!
So my parents finally got back from Georgia. I have to say that I feel a great relief! Of course I knew local people are civilized that it is a nice country with fantastic nature, but it was still the Caucasus region and I definitely did not trust its roads and planes... My parents loved the trip and today and tomorrow we are looking at the photos they and their friends have taken. Nice to have them home
I also announce the newest kiriban as you did not catch the previos one: 904 444!

Huh, I made a BIG mistake.
(WARNING, A LITTLE SPOILER ALLERT IS FOLLOWING)
I read a part of Hunger games. I do not say it is a bad book - but I was shocked how bad I felt for that story! Among my friends, I am well-known for having no love for kids. But reading about deaths of all those children made me sick and although I stopped r

You can has pictures!Get ready for the longest Journal ever!
So my trip to South Korea is over since some days already. It feels it was short actually, but I surely enjoyed my time there I took an important amount of pictures and I decided to upload some of them here if any of you feels like taking a look at them; Pictures are not worth the actual thing but it's good to take anyway :')
One of my main occupations there was to visit many palaces and temples, thing that I enjoyed a lot and especially when they brought me in particular ambiances and atmospheres I've never been in before. This surely was a nice and interesting experience for me ^^
Busan at night; every main cities of South Korea tend to become flashlight-cities once night is here~

WildSpiritWolf's FAQEDIT: My Commission Info has MOVED, please see here for pricing and terms: http://wildspiritwolf.deviantart.com/journal/36179820/
Welcome To WildSpiritWolf's FAQ Section!
If you have a question that I've missed and you'd like to see me add it to the list, reply to this journal entry and I will update it with the answer. Kay, here we go...
Q. How long have you been drawing?
A. I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil, but I've only been seriously drawing since about 2001. That's when I first started to really explore the internet. It led me to find some of the great artists like Auryanne, Moon Wang, and Snowy who ended up intensely inspiring me and starting my artwork along the path it's on today.
Q. Where do you find your inspiration?
A. The biggest and best place I find my inspiration would be from my own thoughts and feelings. Drawing from my emotions especially with music on in the background can be one of the mo
German lesson number two!:3 - Polite talkingHello there!;///;
I never expected this journal would become so popular.O///O
So I decided to make another one to help you!:3
Let's start. :iconteatimeplz:
In english, everybody is usually 'you'.
In germany, you have to address people as 'Sie' when they become adults. It's polite, and if you don't do it you seem very rude. There are two ways of 'Sie' in german. One is the feminine sie. This one is used for females. "Sie spielt draußen" - "She is playing outside."
And there is the other Sie, the one I just told you about.
The femine sie is written without a capital letter, the polite sie is written with a capital S - Sie. The polite sie can be used for both, female and male.
Some expample sentence with 'Sie':
Do you know where I can find the toilet? - Wissen Sie , wo die Toillete ist? [ Wisan se wow de towletah ist?]
Want to learn some german?:3 - The basicsHello there!^w^
I was bored...so I thought, since a lot of people seem to like Germany, I would like to share some germans words with you!:3
First, in germany exist three 'articles'. In the english language is only one, 'the'.
In germany the articles are 'Die' (feminine), 'Der' (masculine) and 'Das', neutral.
A lot of those articles don't make sense for the words there are used to..xD (For example it is: 'Die' Sonne (the Sun). But actually the Sun is a thing, and not feminine. ) This will be very confusing to learn. ; ;
So I will teach you some basics, and how you pronounce it. :3
Guten Morgen - Good morning [Gootan Morgan]
Guten Abend - Good evening [Gootan Ahband]
Wie geht es dir? - How are you? [Wee gayht es dihr?]
Mir geht es gut! - I'm fine! [Meer gayht es goht]
Mir geht es nicht so gut. - I don't feel very good. [Meer gayht es nisht/nicht sow goht.]
And there comes the CH (nicht.) I noticed this is very, very difficult to pronounce for people outside germany. But german people c
Snow is here - wolves on snow - PHOTOSHi!
The first snow came - it was very thin layer, much less than 1cm, so it did not survive the night, but it still pleased me
It inspired me to post some photos of wolves on snow - those shots are quite old
Wohoo, this number of pageviews? thanks people, it looks nice - I wonder if I can make it to 1 000 000 until the end of 2012! it would be awesome
