I'm still very excited about the NPTs, even though I've been at home most of the time since they were set up and able to look at them all day. Haven't got sick of them, haha. Even with the water changes needed in the initial stages, still not sick of it, heh. I definitely won't be complaining when I can decrease water changes without sacrificing water quality though. Hopefully it won't be too long (like, more than a month or so) until I can go back down to once a week, as the intense WC schedule is doing my head in since life hit me like a truck, heh. The plants are really taking off though, and I'm getting some hairgrass (not normal hairgrass, e. belem) that will be planted during the next water change which is exciting. So many plants!! XD
Going to start a shrimp-only tank as well once life settles down, using plants propagated in the NPTs. Found a source for a cheap enough T5 light in the length needed for the tank I want, which is awesome. Since getting these NPTs set up I've developed a certain snobbishness regarding tanks and lights, since it's worked out so well, and stuff is available for an affordable enough price if I am willing to travel.
Just pretty excited about things in general.
I should have studied more than I did today... I feel like my brain is melting, and that I have no chance at learning all 30 steps to a piercing. I can remember with no problems what to do once setup commences all the way through to after the piercing and explaining aftercare to the client, I'm just stuck on the first few steps. Which is a lot better than nothing I guess, but I'd really like to get all 30 steps down before next class. Then I will have a whole fortnight to study ONLY the piercing-specific things I need to learn before the first practical day. I'd rather have EVERYTHING I need to know in my head well before the time I go near someone with a needle. I realise not everyone is this anal-retentive, but my objective with this was to provide the best, cleanest body mods possible, and being slack in learning my stuff isn't a part of that.
Being a perfectionist gets good results, but bloody hell it's annoying and stressful, haha.
