Multi - rant.

Headache for nearly 2 weeks, along with other symptoms. Did some reading and found I'm having acute reaction to ANY kind of stress. It's sort of acting like a crippling version anxiety attacks and I can't even stand when it gets bad

My oldest goldfish has dropsy, it started out of nowhere. He was great a couple of hours before and just swelled like a balloon. I've thought about euthanizing him but it makes me start to cry... 8 years and a ton of life lived together makes it nearly impossible...

Hydra in the spawn tank -_- the babies are big enough not to be killed by them but they are obviously irritating I have seachem paragaurd I'm trying now but I REALLY can't have Hydra in the grow out with ton's of tiny mystery snails hatching

FLEAS- We got rid of them for a really long time and my cats had grown fur back now they are balding again :( and my little poodle has a skin problem aggravated by them D: I'm not happy

Faulty light- the light in the kitchen is being stupid, it flickers and this aggravates the headaches and has nearly made me black out a couple of times. My house mate and his mom are refusing to fix it, im petrified I'm going to black out and have a seizure here alone with my daughter if they don't do anything. I can't even cook at night! It's so infuriating to be completely disregarded this way. I'm stuck cooking in the damn dark and not being able to turn on the light to look for things I need. WHO DOES THAT TO SOMEONE ELSE!?

Dog comes into hospital yesterday as an emergency. Nose bleeding all night and into morning. If it's been bleeding that long probably some sort of nasal cancer. Cleaned blood off every surface in hospital all day because that's just what happens with bleeding dogs.
Sent rads to radiologist, super vague and unhelpful. Run bloodwork/etc. and dog has a platelet count of 0. Needs platelet transfusion which would need to be done in Davis. Owner can't afford this, used care credit to pay for rads and everything else we did. Send dog home in evening with everything doctor can think of, but still needs platelet transfusion.
Dog comes in today urinating blood, nose still bleeding, and now dry patch on back also bleeding. Needs to go to doggy heaven, owner distraught. Technician I work with distraught as she's going through medical issues with one of her dogs that is only 2. Not a good day. Dog went to doggy heaven, and I had to clean more blood. Came home to still sick betta, even more unhopeful about his recovery after such a terrible day. Dentist tomorrow morning. No sleep as been working 55-60 hours a week all month plus spring semester started.

End rant.

A guy in a truck just drove through a corner of a snowbank in the parking lot, like, "Uh, duh, how did that get there?" Hello, there's no one else here, plenty of room!
These guys are out there on the roads, people...

This is not really a rant... more like a sad sigh.
Yesterday I received a really nice performance evaluation at work.
Today I messed up, big time... a bad mistake compounded by another mistake I made. Result -- a very unhappy customer. I'm pretty sure my boss isn't too thrilled either. Not sure how far up the chain this is going to go.
Really unhappy right now.

Me? No all of that tested fine and I drink tons of water. I'm pretty sure it's a severe stress reaction

Talked to my mother for the first time on the phone for a while where she happily told me that her and dad got a red betta they named rex :D YAY!!

Then proceeded to let go the information that the store person said to never change the fish's water (which they haven't for two months), and that a 1 gallon bowl, with a hard plastic plant, no heater, and no filter would make him REALLY happy.

Sending her the real betta care info now...

Had to throw a $40 air pump in the bin this evening, because I stupidly forgot to use a check valve on one of my tanks and water back siphoned into the pump when I opened the air control valve.

To make matter worse, as I was carefully taking it apart to see how bad the damage was, I managed to snap a piece off.

I am also frustrated by the fact that very few hobbyists in Australia seem to use Hamburg matten filters, and I'm probably going to have to DIY one for my goldfish tank.

Hey, @LittleBettaFish , what did you think of that GS that won the Westminster?

//Rant---

Ringo is aggressive towards other fish. He was going to be the centerpiece of the 20G long, but he is attempting to rip all the Danios to shreds. I had to move the two male Mollies to Akuma's portion, because he wouldn't leave them alone. Luckily he hasn't figured out what the Cories are, yet. *sigh* There goes my beautiful tank plans. Just please, dear God, don't let him bite his fins. That would be all I need.

//Another Rant---

I coughed up blood while running crushers for gym. Guess what? Gym teacher didn't care and told me to keep on running. The crushers are the daily grade--- Run 10 in 45 secs per, or you loose 10% of the grade. Miss 2? C+. Miss 3? D+. Miss 4? F.

I. Am. So. Done. With. School. Thank god for the 4-day-weekend coming up.

Also, I think there is a guy that likes me that I have in basically all my classes. He's pretty nice, and I've known him since 3rd grade. Makes it kind of awkward, though. He's a good athlete & has good grades. Me? Not so much. Whatever, though.

//End Rants.
