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.

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’–

How about you?

Happy Finds To Soothe The Heart

Some cute things I got today while doing boring olโ€™ grocery shopping! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–

My geriatric ratty Queso is still hanging on. But he is so, so thin. I got him oats, corn, organic chicken, peas, carrots… all favorites… more Pediasure too. I hope I can coax him to eat. Anyway! I also got some cute body wash and lip gloss and bandaids! And had a wonderful lunch.
