So far mermaids have been a steadily growing obsession of mine! Of course my older obsessions are still ever present: Plants, peafowl, etc. :D

There is a neat series on Netflix called Mako Mermaids that I just got into watching today. While some of the special effects are cheesy (fast swimming scenes showing just a trail of fake bubbles is especially cheesy) so far this show really "pulled me in" or pulled me into the water you could say haha. I like the story line so far and that is what really has me captivated. I can already tell that this show will feed my growing mermaid/merman addiction. 

Mernetwork has become the equivalent of Backyard Chickens to me. Backyard Chickens has a peafowl section on the site forum so that is where I go for my peafowl fix, but Mernetwork is where I go for my merfolk fix! I don't feel as at home at Mernetwork as I do at Backyard Chickens, but I know that will take time as with anything.

I feel like such a silly mermaid...I have only swam in a tail once and have yet to swim in my new, better fabric tail yet I am already thinking of what my next tail will be made out of and I am already dreaming of having a silicone tail!

There has been a bit of worry in the merfolk community about the large influx of new members. Everyone is okay with newbies, but the main worry is that the new members are just a part of a trend movement and only want to be a mermaid for a short time because it is "trendy". Also some of the new members are having trouble fitting in and there have been some misunderstandings with the wording of posts and thus it creates arguments/drama. While I joined back in 2013, it wasn't until recently that I got a tail and started being active on the site. I really hope that I am not seen as an annoying newbie or someone who is not serious.

Well I feel like no one is going to read this but I will pass out some links here anyways:

I am obsessed with peafowl. That basically sums up part of me lol. I breed and raise peafowl so I love all of their noises and pretty feathers.

I also love plants. I love tropical plants the most...Things like tree ferns, cannas, bananas, helliconia, shell ginger, elephant ears, bamboo, etc. I like gardening but my garden isn't super spectacular. XD

I have been drawing since I was really little and have stuck with it. I don't draw every day but I do draw enough not to get worse but better. I don't know what I like to draw the most. I like to draw a lot of different things and probably go through phases where I like to draw certain things.

As far as college goes, I am studying Graphic Design and have no clue what I will do once I am out of college! Hooray me!

My boyfriend is amazing and he is not only my boyfriend, but my best friend. I met him in art class and I am very happy that he is an artist so it is supper fun to talk about art with him.

Ah yes I have spoken to Friedrich Esser. He is very nice. I can't view that page since I am not on facebook but I am sure he has wonderful photos on there. He travels around to document and photograph wild green peafowl. He has 2 nice websites and he lives in Thailand breeding Indo-Chinese peafowl that are from wild caught birds.
