Just got my application! :D

I've been going to my lps for several years now. The manager, Mile, has been great friends with my father for many years, at least 7. Finally, I walked in today and started talking about working there. Mike knows that I have a lot of fish and that I'm very experienced with animals. He handed me an application and said that he'd love it if I worked there. I already have it filled out. I'm leaving during lunch break (at work with my dad in an automechanic shop) to go drop it off and talk some more. I'm hoping that I can get the job, especially since good things tend to happen when others know your father. The only thig now is money. I don't care how much I get, but I want enough to be able to walk in and buy the HMs that are currently staring at me and literally begging for me to take them home. How can I not?! This was the first HM I got from this place. I lost the pic of him in full flare, but he is a HM. He had a clear beard with a red dot on the right and a blue dot on the left. :3

Daemon (first bought)


Daemon (after two months)


Talk about falling in love!! I NEED more bettas! xD

Now, in the past two years, I've had 18 different people ask me if I worked there (keep in mind that I only go there during the summer). No ... but I'll still help you regardless! :D Mike has watched as I told people the prices of things that are two rooms over and where to find them exactly. I can tell he's impressed. :P I'm still confused on why people ask me though ... I'll just be standing around and staring at things and they ask. The uniform shirts are blue and I wear completely other colors with graphic designs. What comes over these people, I'm not sure. lol I don't mind though. I like helping them and giving them advice on their aquariums. Mike already knows about my 50 million tanks and how much I love animals, so hopefully I'll get the job. xD

Wish me luck! :D :P

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Another fish is never a bad thing. :)

13 gallon? That's a strange number, most tanks I've seen come in numbers that end in .5, 5 or 0. That's pretty cool.

I thought that too, but they're out there. It's just like a 33g long.
