My biography  I was a baby when my parents introduced me to water. From then on I was swimming. sometime later it was summer '94, I was 5 and making myself swim like a dolphin, my grandma would record Ocean Girl, an Australian series that aired on the Disney Channel about an alien girl who could swim very fast, hold her breath for long periods, and communicate with a humpback whale. From then on my favorite sea animal were humpback whales, and I swam every chance I could get! I now have the whole series, seasons 1-3 on DVD. lol  Time went on my family and I moved from Orange County to Lake Arrowhead, CA. I loved it there, a little further

Summer's Comin'

0 min read
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Summer is coming! I'm sure ya'll can't wait! I cannot, that's for sure! Summer means: swimming, no school, and camp! Yup, I'm going back to Washington this summer. ^_^ I'm gonna be there from June til the start of August, I'll come back and spend some summertime with the family that way. (And they won't have to miss me too much. lol) I just can't wait! School has been soooooo draining. I swear, these professors are out there to drain every last piece of imaginitive thinking out of you. Homeschooling was so much more fun. >.< hehe School can be good though, like when I got a really good grade on my last essay in SPANISH! yay! or when

oh my gosh congratulations! you got a baby!!!!!
Hey freshwater friend how have you been? 
Hope you're still mermaiding. 
Im still working on my dang koi tail thats taken a millennium to finish haha. 
I miss mermaiding tho sadly my oil slick tail is fully retired unless i want to dig it out again. 
Just stopping by c= ~ Koia.
I know how that is! My turquoise tail will always be a work in progress! lol
I've been good, busy, but hopefully I'll be able to get into my tail this summer! I have missed it alot over the winter!
Yeah i have actually put off mine for meh 2 n half years. I got so busy with everything else and the worst part is my design changed a little bit as to what i want it to look like BUT luckily i haven't painted the tail yet its still pinned an folded on a shelf. 
I keep asking my mom for help on it but she refuses to touch it out of fear it will get messed up an i keep reminding her its my first time making my own tail if mistakes happen they happen its no big deal we can always make another. But yeah its a LONG work in progress. 
I think i also put mine off because i gained a bit of weight since i last cut out the pattern so im afraid i will have to loose some belly fat to fit into it but its no biggie. 
Im glad you're doing good. =D and i can't wait to see new pictures of your turquoise tail. 
Thanks for the fav :D I hope you liked the picture!!
Where did you get your tail? I have always wanted one.
I made it, neoprene and a finis competitor monofin for my latest pics ^_^
