I heard Target will hire anyone with any type of degree for their management program. Think it pays pretty well.

I also did a lot of temping. It really sucked but it got my foot in the door a couple places.

That's how I got my 3 year work-study program. I didn't even have work-study (sorry for the kids who did >.<) until later at the end but yeah. My mother is a custodian working for our state university, I will probably end up doing something similar. Even if you know someone in the Uni, you still start off on the lowest bit, doesn't matter what level they're in. My mom's at the highest for custodial but it doesn't mean diddly unfortunately. My father works for Electric Boat and he was supposed to talk to someone this week about getting my brother and I in since we've both been applying like crazy to that place but so far no go for either of us!

Thanks for the tip about Target, unfortunately the closest one to me is about 45 minutes away. Would have to depend on the pay grade for sure. I'm not below traveling for work but the other options are closer so I'm trying those first for sure. But I appreciate any and all tips! and support ^_^ I know I'm certainly not alone but damn, it sure does feel like it sometimes.

I heard a rumor Target starts you off at $60k but it's for four ten (sometimes longer) days.

I understand about feeling alone. Sometimes you just have to give yourself depression time. Unemployment is a lot.

Can't wait to see pics by the way!

Ugh, I don't think I can handle 10 hour days. My father did it for a while but it was so hard on him. I'm similar in mind-set to him, I'd much rather have regular 8 hour days but I don't mind working 7 days a week if need be, just not 10 hours all the time. I've worked 14 hours before and that was awful, did 3 days of it in prep for summer time at Wal-Mart since I was the only toy associate. But hey, 60K might be worth it in the end.

Uploading pics shortly! I ended up just going through and making the file sizes smaller of all the pics I want to upload. Added my new signature to them as well, I'll try to make them unobtrusive as possible but I know it's still annoying to see signatures in pics. But hopefully they'll upload quicker this way!

Have you thought of applying at one of lps? I cant imagine they would snap you up with your knowledge and experience!

Cant wait to see pictures!

Here is a question for you. Did water changes on 6 tanks last night. Exact same water, all planted. A couple have wood, one ornament and other just plants. 2 of tanks super cloudy today and stink like rot smell. All tanks had deep cleans and did update my osmocote. Other 4 fine which did exact same cleans on. Has happened a couple of times and cant figure cause. Did another water change affected tanks. Any suggestions?

Okay! Just made it with 41 pictures lol! Cap is 50 for anyone wondering.
I still have some of my saltwater tank photos to edit as well so I'll upload those in a moment once I sign them as well.

So Florida!
We did an airboat ride and these were some of the better photos I took!
Just over the lake, it was super fun and really nice out!

Old Cypress tress and the path we went through.

The cutest anole that ended up getting relocated from the land that we ran over and onto our boat! The poor thing! She was just holding onto the rail as tight as she could until we picked her up. Fortunately for her, it was the end of the ride. Here she is as mom is holding her. She was bright green but started to turn brown with the warmth and attempting to blend in.
IMG_6944_EDIT.jpg

And on my hand. She didn't want to get off even when prompted. I would have taken her home in a heartbeat! But I know they're really cheap to buy as well.
IMG_6948_EDIT.jpg

Then we went to a restaurant called SquidLips! Awesome river-side restuarant! This one is out on the dock so I got some pretty neat seagull pictures! Granted seagulls aren't the most fascinating or rare creature, but I thought they were some pretty cool shots!

Out on the docks at sunset, some nice boats.
IMG_7107_EDIT.jpg

A very old dock that I decided to walk down. There are no rails or anything, just the dock and the posts. As you can see it's very wavy, it doesn't move but it certainly feels like it lol. Best to keep looking down at the dock while you walk unless you have very good equilibrium haha
IMG_7131_EDIT.jpg

We went to Animal Kingdom! On the Safari ride we saw many of the animals but this was my favorite!
IMG_7276_EDIT.jpg

I took some other great shots of the Rhino's, these are White Rhinos, but this one was my absolute favorite!

The Gorilla's were beautiful. This one was lounging and eating and happily being watched. The other older one didn't seem very fond of people at all.
IMG_7357_EDIT.jpg

Mr. Feesh, he looked totally fine before he passed. Not really sure why he died but oh well.

I introduce to you Suiche! My new favorite fish besides Remmy lol. They're the only two I'm keeping though.

@themamaj most of the stores around are one-man show kind of things. George only accepts volunteer help since he doesn't make enough money. SeaHorse are owned by two brothers who do everything. The only one I could really apply for would be Critter Hut, which I meant to do but haven't yet. They're still family run by two brothers so there certainly isn't any "growth" available there for me but obviously can help me get the cash I need soon for my student loan payments.

Did you swish out the filter media at all? I get that sometimes if I haven't cleaned that out in a while. Could be that you kicked up too much during the water change as well. Best thing to do, as you already did, just do another quick water change. It should settle overnight. You can use activated carbon to get rid of the smell though. Carbon doesn't really last long so it's more cost effective to buy a box of it and use some pantyhose or whatever to replace it frequently if you want the effects of it. On a dirty tank, most carbon only lasts a few days. On a clean tank they last 2 weeks to a month at best.

Gorgeous pictures!! Love that surprised face ;)

Both of tanks actually had rinsed filter and changed sponge media. Maybe stirred up too much.
