NOW HERE’S A BEAUTIFUL CHOICE

The first character I first fell in love with: I’ve always had a soft spot for comb jellies, they are deep sea rainbow children and I love them
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Lion’s mane jellyfish, I used to hate those fuckers for putting their stinger-filled shitty floof hands all over my bod when I went swimming, but now they’re my favorite animals period, they’re giant and colorful and gorgeous and if I did not fear a painful death, I would gladly invite many more shitty stingy floof hands into my life if it meant getting to look at them up close
The character everyone else loves that I don’t: Moon jellies are very cute n pretty, but there are many more jellies that I appreciate more
The character I love that everyone else hates: again, I think it’s safe to say that very few people appreciate lion’s mane
The character I used to love but don’t any longer: I used to be o b s e s s e d with the immortal jellyfish, but now I have moved on to other interesting friends!
The character I would totally smooch: DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE BETWEEN MY CHILDREN
The character I’d want to be like: The upside down jelly just lies around with all its lil leggies stickin straight up into the air all day, goals tbh
The character I’d slap: I WOULD NEVER SLAP A WATER CHILD, ARE YOU KIDDING ME
A pairing that I love: all jellyfish are lesbians and I ship all of them
A pairing that I despise: jellyfish x those shitty ppl on the beach who throw them around, I will f i g h t

After getting the update about Annie, I made some diner last night and was in bed shortly after 9pm.  While I am a very worrisome/stressful person - I can always sleep (that sort of thing does not keep me up all night).  I fell asleep right away but at 2am I woke up and then was wide awake.  I even worked on my current illustration project for a while to give myself something to focus on.  At about 3:30 I laid back down and then of course when my alarm went off for swim an hour later I turned it off and let the back up alarm go off 15 minutes later.   And then I kept hitting snooze (which I never do).  So while I did make it to practice on time, I did not get there a little early to do the usual warm-ups etc.

The first set of the workout was 3 rounds (for the fast lanes and all other lanes would complete as much as they could in that same overall amount of time).  I was really pleased with getting in two full rounds as there was no one else in my lane today, so I just had to keep pushing myself as opposed to having the push to keep up with lane mates. 

I would say my biggest challenge with swimming still remains getting my breathing under control.  I still have to breath quite frequently and I am really looking forward to breaking through that some day.  One of the team mates saw me in the locker room after and he asked how I was enjoying it so far etc.  I mentioned that I am looking forward to getting breathing under control and he said he had been an avid runner and cyclist for years and it took him quite a while to get his breathing under control swimming.  He said everyone is really impressed with how well I am doing so far and that the coach has told some of them I am doing really well.  So that was really nice of him to say and part of why being on this team is so good for me.  That kind of encouragement is a big deal to me!

Now I am at home and waiting by my phone for the call from the vet with an update on Annie and details on when I can bring my buddy home!

Someone is a little bit too excited! ( ̄ε ̄@)

Shark Week is finally here and nothing could mess this week up for Rin–except maybe falling from his bed! How embarrassing… (o^▽^o) Sosuke better not breathe a word about this! (゚ロ゚)

Both dorks were late for their Samezuka Pool Party–bad hosts! (◕‿◕)

Thank you Papa Tuan for sharing this with us… A fun n cute moment during the pool party that I couldn’t watch without dread previously. I’m smiling at Jackson 😍😚
Papa Tuan ’s title for the video is “always wanted to do but did not dare. Thank you Mark” haha 😂
Mama Tuan was shouting “I can’t swim I can’t swim” in chinese before she went in the pool.
Jackson asked Papa Tuan : “she’s crying?” in chinese.
Bammie hitting mark for making mama tuan cry haha “you made her cry!”

My sim somehow got a mixing bowl stuck to her hand, and went about her daily life just fine until she went swimming. She couldn’t get out of the pool with the bowl stuck to her hand, so she died. And her ghost still had the bowl stuck to her hand.

going to the pool with Calum and your little girl who’s finally old enough to go in the water and she has a cute little bucket hat just like her daddy and her swimsuit has cute cartoon puppies on it and Calum takes her into the pool with her little arm floaties and she squeals because of how cold the water is and Calum just chuckles and holds her close to his chest as he slowly brings her into the water and soon she’s laughing and splashing with her little chubby arms and she looks so much like Calum when she laughs and you can’t believe just how lucky you are to have the two of them.
