Well, I am debating to refund or not for a buyer.

See, she purchased three fish from me. I sent it express mail as she paid for it. She received them today and I did not get any contact until 5pm tonight (my time zone; she is 2/3 hours ahead). The fish were delivered at 11:15am to her house today. I specifically state that the buyer or someone, should be home to bring the box inside and to contact me if there are any problems within 3 hours of delivery time. She waited 6+ hours to contact me that she received the fish all alive but the smaller one died after taking him/her out of the bag. Water was cold. Did not even answered how she acclimated or not. I had a 72 hour heat pack and knew it was working when I shipped out. Half my conscience, is telling me she left it outside until she came back from work or whatever. It is in the 30s where she is located. I asked for a photo of the dead fish even though it is way pass the time frame I would refund. She refused and said she threw the dead away. I stated how big the fish was in the auction and even measured them before shipping out. She called the dead one little (it was 2.25"). That will be $54 I will refund her for that one fish, if I do. This is one reason why I hate shipping live stock because I have no way in knowing if the buyer acclimated, was home to receive the package, did not have a cycled tank, etc.

Always get a photo of dead and send it to the seller. It is frustrating as a seller, to get customers who do not read or follow our DOA policy, especially for a time frame. I do not want to be an ass so may end up refunding and blocking for future sales. Only second dead fish in 6 odd years of shipping so my packing is not bad…I have shipped in even colder weather (snowing) too. Just have to pack the box right.
**Yes, fish can be shipped. How do you think they get to stores? No large business is going to waste money on ground transportation if their wholesale buyer is across the country. All those uncommon fish too. Fish farms or importers, get them from overseas. They go on airplanes :)

The Girl /poem/

Requested by a sweet anon that I post a poem I wrote.

Also, I wrote this after having been through a really tough time when I was 16, please don’t give me hate for this.

Warning-trigger warnings, mentions of cutting, suicide, death

“I once saw a girl
Who no one but me
Could see.
She told me her problems,
She showed me her arms
Which were covered in scars.

She talked of her dreams.
She trusted me it seems.
Scared and misunderstood,
I’d have helped if I could.

You may have noticed,
This is all I’m the past-tense m
That’s because she left me, the only friend she had.
She took her own life because she thought it was bad.

I found her lying on her bed
With a bullet in her head.
I saw the scars she tried
So hard to hide.

I was one of three
Who came to see
Her body in a casket.
I gave her a flower,
Her favorite kind.
She’ll forever be on my mind.

To say that I miss her
Is an understatement
For I will forever remember
The girl who was afraid.”

i went to a social event and talked to people! i was so anxious about going, especially since i didn’t know anyone and had the worst period cramps ever. but i ended up talking to a bunch of people in my program during this wine and cheese event and it changed my mood completely. i even got to add some people on facebook whom i had some very interesting conversations with.

the only bad thing that happened was that i saw this girl i went on a date with last year -.- it was super awkward, and i’m pretty sure she recognized me because she left after walking near me.

anyway, i’m glad i got out of my comfort zone. i got awesome free food, deep conversations, and even got to enjoy the live jazz band playing. i also didn’t drink any alcohol even though the wine was unlimited. i’m so proud of the control i have over myself and my ability to actually do stuff even when i don’t want to.


NEW VIDEO: “The Disney Challenge REMATCH” ft. Zoe!

If you dig it, reblog. Watch last year’s original challenge, too.


C: What are you thinking? Do you know how many times a day I ask you that?
T: Sorry. What am I thinking…? I’m thinking that I’m utterly selfish, and I should–
C: Don’t do this; you had no idea, how could you have known?
T: And I should’ve said no to you, but I never say no. And it’s selfish because… because I just take everything, and I don’t know anything and– I don’t know what I want and how could I when all I ever do is say yes to everything? xx

remember how during the year that never was that woman sold martha out, but when things were back to normal martha brought her flowers because she understood why she did it and still respected her

even as so much of the fandom was hating on martha like mad, martha jones herself refused to villainize other women for the choices they made in difficult circumstances. and the more brilliant and badass and wonderful martha is, the sadder it makes people look for hating on her.


#i just want to know if the way she pushes his hair out of the way is something talia probably did for them as children #some sort of comforting small touch to make them feel better when they felt sick #or was it just instinct for cora to touch her brother in a very simple but comforting way because he needed it or maybe she needed it #to make sure her brother was okay #im just very emotional and i wish they would have explored their relationship more
