Well it's been awhile. Finals week is coming up and it's got me on edge, I'll be honest. Thankfully I have my wonderful girlfriend to keep me on track, and a fish tank or two that occupy and relax me in my free time. I've gotten a bunch of new plants for my fish tanks- like legit leafy ones. 

Here's the little tank. Poor photo I know, and it looks a mess too. Over the next couple weeks I'll be taking pictures to track it's progress.  The grass looking stuff in the front are "micro swords" which should end up being like a wavy grass that covers all of the ground by the end of the month. Right now I have 2 clumps of that in the tiny tank and one in the big. The long thing in the back is Sunset Hygro, which is illegal to ship/sell across almost every state line, as it's such a hardy and evasive plant. It has been released into the wild on occasions and has been known to choke out all life in entire lakes by taking up every last inch of space and blocking out the sun when it reaches the surface. I have one in the little tank, and the floating piece in the top left is in my big tank now. This stuff should be great, I actually have a bunch of plans for it once it gets big. This stuff grows like crazy, so you have to cut it back. Well, the cuttings off the plant will take root and start brand new plants, making it very easy to grow. So, I'm going to give some of it to my mom for a cool fish tank idea she has, and I'm actually going to be able to sell some of it back to the place I bought it. Since it can't cross state lines, the plant must be bought locally. The fish store I bought it from only has the stuff because the owner has been growing it in his personal aquarium for years, and he sells the trimmings. Ok, and the last thing in the picture is the java fern on the far right. It's tied to this ornament right now, and once it attached itself to the ornament, I'll put it in the big tank. This one cannot be burried, as it's roots are pretty much useless. It absorbs nutrients from it's leaves actually. I've always loved the stuff and can't wait to have it in the big tank.

Now back to my other joy. My girlfriend. Gosh, I can't get over every aspect of her. She is like a fall out boy song, to which the lyrics escape me. "Better wit, a hotter fuck than any other girl you'll ever meet baby you've got me?" Something like that. We haven't fucked but damn, her kisses are phenomenal. And I simply adore everything that comes out of her mouth. Ok, I don't adore all of it when she's yelling at me, only half of it. What, she's a little cute when she's mad. And a whole lot of intimidating too. =P she's funny, she's smart, she's ambitious, she's loving to those who've earned the blessing of her love, she's trustworthy beyond others, she's knowledagable, gives good advice, a great storyteller, responsible, has dignity, is a 90s grunge girl, she's simply divine to look at- amazing blonde hair, dark eyes, cute freckles, cuter smile on a smoking hot face, hot body with curves like no body's business, and pretty sexy legs if I have any say in things. She's perfect. Minus her figure, she's everything I could ever want to be and more. She's someone who loves me that I can trust beyond any shadow of a doubt. She's there for me, and I'm there for her- although I've been leaning on her more lately. Honestly she's the best thing that could have happened to me. I'm so glad to have her, who knows where I would be if she never was.

Finals. I need to get through this.

I sometimes wish I was brave enough for self harm...
