If not let my owndp.com help by simply giving you a platform to select a picture that would portray all the words your emotions carries.
Myowndp.com is a site that was conceived with the objective of giving mobile phone users, especially BlackBerry, a platform where they could download free display pictures to communicate their status, mood and to express themselves.
In view of the growing demand for creative and fresh display pictures, myowndp.com has gone to great lengths in creating a vast collection of high quality and original display pictures (DP) in over 15 different categories.

The Blackberry network has opened up a whole new medium through which Memes can be transmitted. Memes are viral videos or humorous images which represent cultural and social phenomenon that are spread through social media. The Blackberry network with its well over 3 million users in Nigeria has been known to spread viral media in the form of videos and images.
The eagerness to spread the latest humorous images or memes prompts many to copy the display pictures of other users and spread them. Many images are copied and transferred from one person to another until the novelty of such images wear off. Hence BB users are constantly looking for the latest and humorous images to spread. An online survey carried out showed that mobile users especially Blackberry users would appreciate a portal where they can get Display Pictures from different categories. Hence our drive to create which invariably would meet this welling need for display pictures.
