It's been a little while since my last update, before I indulge in that, I hope all of my friends had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, I had probably the best Christmas ever, I got to spend it with my BF, and I got A CAR!!! I LOVE it, it's perfect!! My new year was OK, we got iced in, which sucked, but we still had fun!

Nothing really has changed with the boys, all of them are doing great! Mia isn't doing so well though, she looks slightly bloated, and is pineconing a little, so my mom and I are keeping an eye on her.

Job wise, I'm still in the same spot, but I have hope for something in the fitness industry, so keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

My BF and I just hit another big milestone, we've been together for 9 months now! <3

Here's some pictures!
Ike


Nova


Ra


Oh yeah, these pictures of Jasper from 2 years ago came up on my FB memories:

It's been a bit since my last update, and I have some pretty unfortunate news, January 19, I lost Nova. I have no idea what happened, he was acting a bit off and being picky with his food, and the next day he had completely pineconed, no bloating or anything, 2 days later, he passed, I was with him. I just don't know what happened... He was showing the same exact symptoms as Jinx. Ra, and Ike are doing fantastic though!
Zion unfortunately has a huge tumor, as well as popeye, my mom is treating him with Maracyn 2 I believe. Does anyone have any suggestions/advice for treatment?

I'll get some pictures of everyone soon!

Sorry to hear about Nova :(

I don't have any advice for Zion (other than clean warm water.. Maybe Espom Salt?) but am glad to see you're still around. :)

If we don't see any improvement, I'll suggest that, thanks!

Oh yeah, I'm still around, life is just eating me alive right now! XD Mostly good things though <3

Haha, I understand. School is currently winning our wrestling match. :)

A friend of mine said this about school; "Yeah, you know the struggle bus? Yep. While trying to get on the struggle bus, I tripped, stumbled, fell into the road, and got hit by the bus. That is my school life right now." I found it quite relateable.

Hahaha that sounds about right, except mine is work and all that, I'm trying to get going as a fitness coach, and start working on becoming a live instructor for the same company, but I have to wait for sessions to be open around me to get certified. I want to get to a point with them where I can quit my job, I don't want to be working for them by the time summer gets here because it gets so darn hot, especially because the facility is not climate controlled, the winter has been pretty bad, it's been so cold, and to top it off, after the new year security has been making a bunch of new rules without telling the employees, they won't let us take in our tools for work. :/ I'm also helping my BF lose some weight and get fit, so everyday I go to his house before work and we workout, it's so much fun!

Ah. It's always hard when people change rules without telling you.

I'm hoping to get a job this summer but have no idea where to look and all that. IT needs to be really flexible because I have horse shows almost every weekend in the summer, plus 2-3 days of practice a week and a day before a show to get ready. The days I need to practice it only needs to be ~2 hours, but that'd be at least 2 days off almost every week for the whole summer, not counting vacations and things. Plus, I have a cousin graduating in Michigan, a 4H camp that I need to go to, and I really want to go to Nebraska to visit family. That leaves like 2 whole weeks to work in the summer.

Yeah :/

I mean the job I have has really flexible hours, I work in the evening, so I have a whole day to do whatever I want, which is nice.

Oh my lord it's been a while!!!

I hope everyone has been doing great, as well as their fish! My life has been SUPER insane, I was in a car accident the day before Easter (I'm fine though), and it took me almost 3 months to get my car back! The damage was pretty bad, I'm surprised that insurance didn't total it. My BF and I are still doing great, we have plans together with family for the 4th (which just so happens to be out 1 year and 3 month anniversary!) We went to San Antonio for our 1 year anniversary, which was lots of fun! I have also started going to school for Music Production and Audio Engineering, I meet with a mentor in a recording studio every week, although that has been put on hold because my mentor hasn't been in good health, because of that I'm trying to get in contact with the school (which has proven to take an act of congress!) to set me up with a new one, I have a prospect, but I haven't heard back from the school, Err, I missed their call today, so I'll see what they have to say tomorrow!
In regards to my sweet boys, I still have Ike and Ra! Although Ike has a pretty large tumor growing on both of his sides, but he's still kicking, albeit a little more sluggish. Ra is wonderful, he is a VT I've come to find out, and he's just as grumpy and huffy as Chili was! XD I also did a thing and brought home a beautiful HM King from PetCo, his name is Ralphie! He had been there for a bit, and when I went back for him the first time, he didn't look good, so I opted out, the next time I went, he was gone, so I assumed the worst, about a month later, I see him back again, but SO much healthier!! So I got all new stuff and brought him home! He needs a new filter already though, as his crapped out on me Sunday. :/
Here are some pictures of them! Ralphie is HOOGE! Not even huge, he's HOOGE!

It's so good to hear from you! Love that patriotic flare to tank. He is huge! How fun. I miss having a king/giant. Such big puckers and attitude.

Exciting to hear your school plans. Glad you are doing well.

I feel I owe everyone an update, Ike, Ra, and Ralphie have unfortunately all passed away, Ralphie lasted a month with me, Ra started feeling bad, and Ike was taken by that nasty tumor. BUT I got a new boy on October 26 of last year, his name is Ozzie! I bought him from a giant seller on Ebay, he is the best!!

I have since moved in with my boyfriend, we moved on the first of this month, so far, so good! I have finished my basic and advanced course in school, and I'm now working one on one with my mentor, he said if I do well enough, I will have a job with him! I haven't been able to focus on it much because of moving, but I will definitely be doing more now that I'm moved and settling.

Here's a picture of the Oz (Ozzie);
