So I realized I haven't written a journal entry in a while.
I haven't been on DA in a while...Well really been on. I've submitted photos, but really haven't been on and looked at my watch list and other things. I really have been on a streak of not photographing much lately. Not even working on my other projects. Such as my needle felting or clay creations. I have just been working and going out and playing Pokémon go...YES I play Pokémon Go. Pokémon is part of my childhood. I grew up with it and I enjoy going out and catching Pokémon. It has really gotten me off my ass and walking. I really need the exercise anyways...I am so unhappy with my body. I want and need to lose the weight and if I can get out and walk 5-10 miles a week, that's a start. Also watching what I eat. Well anyways besides that, I really want to get back into my photography and other projects. I have been meeting lots of new people, making friends, and going out a lot more lately. Ever since moving to Washington a year and half ago. I can see about photographing them and their kids or pets. I miss it...I haven't even taken much photos of my own animals. I haven't been breeding much, I am actually taking a break. I will have occasion litters but, won't have them as much as I want too. This past year has been really tough with getting babies. My ratties have not been wanting to breed or something. maybe they just don't like the atmosphere they are in. I have no idea. I have on litter or dwarf/dwarf carriers right now. looks like 2/3 may possibly be dwarf. If so I will be keeping the dwarfs so I don't lose the line. I know if I lose them I will possibly never get dwarfs again. It will be hard if anything. I have breed for a little over 6 years and have lots so many of my lines a=over the past 2 years. When I moved up to WA from CA I rehomed almost all my ratties except a few dwarfs and a couple standards and I kind of regret it. After I moved up I wished I hadn't rehomed certain ones. But I knew I had sent them to great homes. I may start up again in the future, maybe try working with another breeder up here or something to work my rattery back up to where I used to be. Or I just may stop breeding altogether and just enjoy the ratties I have and go back to school (which I would do anyways) and study what I've been wanting to study to get into better work. I am so done with retail. I have been working at the same place since a month after I moved up to WA. I have been doing a great job and I am one of the people they like best there. I enjoy the people I work with but the customers and difficult and I just have to deal with them. My bosses have been complimenting me a lot lately and love how aware I am of things in the store and how hard working I am. They say that they trust me with every area of the store. Hopefully I'll be able to be promoted to something better than just a cashier. I don't plan to work there forever though. Like I said I would love to go back to school and get into better work. I know I will and can...
Well...I hope everyone is well (to whoever is reading this)..Thanks for reading
