All posts by Marina Neira

My name is Marina! ๐ŸŒ Iโ€™m a SFW furry artist and fantasy writer. I'm an immigrant, living in the USA since December 12, 2001. I became a proud American citizen on May 21st, 2021. Iโ€™m in my late 30s and married to a wonderful nerdy guy. Youโ€™re welcome to refer to me as she/her. Iโ€™m what you could describe as peculiar. I talk peculiar, dress peculiar, and have peculiar interests, to put it all mildly. I can be dressed like a five year old, drinking alcohol from a literal sippy cup, while discussing theology or George Orwell with you. Being this way has sometimes made it hard to find people I vibe with (I'm kind of out of place no matter where I go) but it has also led me down some interesting paths in life. I wouldn't rather be anyone other than myself. ๐Ÿฅฐ I'm the author of Meganeea and The Tale of Horus ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ I like saying that, but no one knows my books, since I'm still working on them.

Pediasure Time ๐Ÿผ

Trying to feed Queso his Pediasure can be a hassle. Heโ€™s much more likely to eat in the company of others, butโ€ฆ they donโ€™t make it easy!

Croissant isnโ€™t a very friendly rat, except when the Pediasure syringe is involved. She struggled as a little one so she used to get lots of it. She would eat it until she was in a food coma and covered in the stuff. But here sheโ€™s just trying to steal Quesoโ€™s.

My sweet old manโ€ฆ I know that before the year is out, perhaps very soon, youโ€™ll see me post about his passing. We will miss him a lot. Right now I am just trying to make sure Queso is as happy and comfy as possible.

Most of his days are still good. But the writingโ€™s on the wall on the bad ones.

Poshmark Finds! โœจ

HOLY CRAP… ok Poshmark is fantastic! Iโ€™d been looking for these skirtalls which quickly sold out at Hot Topic. They were on Poshmark brand new with tags for $15. Down from like $45! I had no idea if they would fit me well, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Second purchase from the same site, in my absolute favorite shade of pink:

These are gonna get an iron on patch! I love them!! There is officially nothing in my wardrobe I canโ€™t combine now. These last few overalls made it so I could use 40% more of what I own. Iโ€™ll be able to dress Little every day! Iโ€™m so happy ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–

Avocado Toast With Chantilly ๐Ÿฅ‘

Went out to lunch withย my friend Jenย today and the French place was closed. Our original plan was a tea place, which was also closed, making the French place a backup, so we went to an Argentinian bakery that was for some reason cash only on this particular day!! *cries* so in the end we did Metro Diner but itโ€™s so good, I donโ€™t mind it twice in a row!

Then we went to Walmart and I came home to several fun packages. It was an awesome afternoon. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒˆ

Jacket Update! ๐Ÿงต

BOYโ€ฆ this was nerve-wracking to iron! Now all thatโ€™s left is to sew them for extra security (Iโ€™m not wearing it until I do that.) Thereโ€™s a few at the front as well.

And now, pins! Minus two pins I added after this photo:

Still have to sew everything on for extra safety and get interlocking pin backs for a few more pinsโ€ฆ then itโ€™s ready to wear! ๐ŸŒˆ

I’m Ready To Go! ๐ŸŽ€โœจ

I’m ready to head out to eat French noms!! And feeling cute, though not *quite* as โ€œLittleโ€ today.

I kinda feel a need to apologize for all the recent selfies and “outfit of the day” photos… ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’ฆ To be quite honest, until sort of recently Iโ€™ve never been a very selfie-positive person, self-love isnโ€™t something that I was great at when I was younger. Thankfully that has changed a lot. Believe it or not a lot of the times I post these photos Iโ€™m forcing myself, it does make me feel a bit vulnerable, all through middle and high school I refused to let anyone take my photo because I hated my smile. But the response I get when posting does make me happy, it gives me more self confidence, I slouch less, I put more and more effort into my appearance.

Seeing and commenting and liking other peopleโ€™s selfies is a happy activity for me as well. Letโ€™s all love one another and ourselves too! ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’–
