Hi everyone

I need your help. I was told today we owe the government $300 dollars by Sept 17th for my student loan payments.

This wouldn’t be such a bad thing if Thresh’s knee wasn’t swollen and in need of a vet trip when we return from our vacation in 9 days(which we can not back out on now). This will require at least one follow up visit after the initial, if not two. These visits include the exam fee, xrays and medication if needed. With her foot, we spent around 400 dollars to see it mostly(not even completely) healed before we had to pull her off Baytril.

To be frank, I can not afford the sudden bill, plus Thresh’s vet appointment, plus food or our bills. I am already in debt-my credit card is maxed, our savings is pretty much run dry, and I am at a loss what to do. I want to see Thresh healthy, but I can not ignore the money owed-it will be taken from us if I like it or not…

I have over 170 followers, if every one person who follows this blog donated 3 dollars, I would have the money I need to pay the debt, bring Thresh to the vet and afford food or other bills.

In exchange, I will take a picture of a pet of your choice, with a party hat of some sort on their head, posing in front of a white board with your name or tumblr URL saying thanks. I do not promise they will cooperate.

I have a paypal button on my page, but you can donate to via paypal as well.

one of the businesses i started while i was a shut-in was

i bred aquatic snails for fun and profit.

At its peak I had nine running tanks, the largest of which was 200 gallons. :)

That is the power of autistic hyperfocus.

Wow. Do you have any of the large snails left!? (the one in the last photo) I’ve had my two big ol snails for three years and I’m fairly certain they are both female and I’d love a male.

This assortment is so beautiful.

I am looking for some help when it comes to creating a intro and credit screen for my videos on YouTube. I’m kind of looking for some ideas and, if you wanna super help me out, some material.

I have never been good with Flash. I want to have some kind of cute intro that is short, probably not more than 10 seconds (no one likes to watch long intros). 

I was thinking about doing maybe just a picture theme for an intro and credits too. A friend recommended drawing myself in one of the character’s outfits of the game its for. 

If I do any of it, I would REALLY like to have a cute jingle/song for my stuff but really, I am not great with any digital music and recording. :c This is what I REALLY need the most help with.

If anyone has any ideas and suggestions, please toss them at me! I am having a MAJOR brain lock right now.

Ka-Pow: Watch These Fish Cannons Shoot Salmon Safely Over Dams

Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.

So, so sorry. I lost my tiny little goldie a few months ago. It hurts.

I’m still not over losing Sparrow. The tank still looks so empty without her… She was also a special baby. I won’t say it hurts more to lose them, but I did take much more extra time and effort to make her life easier. As I do with Iris because she’s so small and fragile. :c

I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s so difficult to go through. :c

Beb, tonight when I get home (midnight) and you’re still up let’s play something to get your mind off things. You need a major de-stresser :(

I have to work early again tomorrow, but I’d love to play something even if it’s only for an hour or two. I will stay up for that. yes.

Iris is really going down hill. :(
I knew it was a possibility that she would grow to have more and more problems as the months went on- because she’s so small- but she gained weight and things weren’t too bad… now I get home from work and her floaty issues are ten times worse…
She’s my little baby..

I haven’t taken any pictures of my 10gal lately. I added a bunch of plants last time I went to our lfs, and they are taking over my tank!

I seriously need to trim, but I really don’t want to throw out the clippings. I gotta see if anyone around here wants them. It’s harder when I don’t know the exact names of what I have going on in here.

ive been asked a few times how i draw back-views, especially for character sheets so i wanted to share a little trick I learned a while back that’s really really helpful especially if you’re used to drawing things from the front and need help getting the proportions right from the back view.

You don’t ALWAYS have to do this the way that I do; The only reason I put effort into the front view is because this is going to be a character sheet and I need the front view to be fleshed out.

But alternatively; Just sketch out a sillhouette, then fill it in on a higher layer. 

Sorry if someones already done this before im just answering a frequently asked question ;w;

Oh hey this is really helpful thanks! :D
