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.

Hurricane Update!

Morning everyone โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’• It seems to be moving a little away from us, but we canโ€™t let our guard down at all. If you are in FL, you shouldnโ€™t either, especially if youโ€™re on the side this MONSTER storm is hitting. I am. So we have to continue to be prepared. We will still likely lose power. I will keep everyone updated as much as I can.

That aside… here’s my outfit for today:

Even if it doesn’t hit us directly, big storms are still scary no matter whatโ€ฆ I donโ€™t even like regular storms when thereโ€™s lots of lighting. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ In the meantime Iโ€™m keeping myself cheerful!

Tama Time ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿผ

Gonna try to marry Pizalinatchi againโ€ฆ

TWIN GIRLS!! Yes!!! I wanted this so much, Iโ€™m so happy!

Scary Days โ›ˆ๏ธ

This morning I had breakfast in the library with my ratties ๐Ÿ’• I started my day with some chores and paying a little more debt. Iโ€™ve almost fully paid my husband up for Megaplex expenses, should be done at the start of September. I am pretty okay. The storm is a worry but what can we do, just prepare.

May I offer you a chonk to start your weekend. I love him…

I’m trying to give him a lot of attention now that his brother is gone. The girls arenโ€™t very cuddly with him. So Iโ€™m making sure I fill that emptiness as much as I can.

One more scritch before I get on with the day. Itโ€™ll be alright little guy.

I have to admit Iโ€™m starting to become fond of this hairstyle which I used to really dislike. I never do anything with my hair at all. But Iโ€™m enjoying this. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™ˆ

Also wearing one of my Littlespace necklaces again after a while. It is one of my favorites. Iโ€™ve used both of them so much the choker is stretched out, I probably ought to replace it soon.

For my afternoon snack I had some banana wafers and dark chocolate and consoled myself with MoonPie’s company.

This hurricane is looking REALLY shitty I guess? Lol. I really donโ€™t want to die/have my pets die/lose all of my possessions. Iโ€™ve been trying to stay calm, but yeah. Itโ€™s looking bad.

My Tama Moves On ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ’ง

This is my favorite game so far!

My Tama getting over the girl who rejected him by chucking the ring into the sky and walking away with SPARKLY TEARS in his eyes and a hecking smile on his face w/triumphant music playing in the background is a lesson about moving on for us all.

Today Will Pass ๐Ÿ’”

Iโ€™ll be okay, donโ€™t worry. Your comments and messages really lift me up and help a ton. This just seemed appropriate to switch today though. But I will be okay.

Rather ironic that this would arrive today given the circumstances. All the same this is hands down the best mousepad I have ever owned or will ever own.

Big thank you to rattycreations on Instagram. Simply lovely concept, canโ€™t be beat or matched, I adore it.

Goodbye, Queso… ๐Ÿ’”

Welcome MoonPieโ€ฆ you come with hugs on a pretty sad day, just in time. ๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆ

CW: Pet loss discussion below…

Anyway… Iโ€™m upโ€ฆ Tried to eat something. I cleaned Queso one more time since he peed overnight and just laid in it ๐Ÿ˜” he is eating some Rice Krispies. I tried to have some breakfast… I’m not very hungry.

We leave around 8am to say goodbye.

โ€ชHere we are having one last little cuddle before itโ€™s time to go. Heโ€™s really barely there. But it could be a couple days of him suffering if we just leave him to pass on his own, and I donโ€™t want that.โ€ฌ

Updating this post now that itโ€™s all over. ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ’” Iโ€™m home now, to say Iโ€™m exhausted is a wild understatement. So I ate something and gonna take a nap with MoonPie.

Iโ€™m still going to try my best to have a decent day today but I may be unresponsive. Sorry in advance.
