Thanks to Haventide for the wonderful portrait above!

Say hi to Exo and Slipstream! Drawing by :iconparkapassions:

Obviously, I am a fan of ponies. I'm also a Masters student in Biology - I study marine invertebrate biology and do science on jellyfish!

I mainly make pony plushes, but I hope to start making other kinds of plushes once I'm out of school. Take a look below for general prices and more info on my commission process! You can always note me with questions, if you have them.

My major interests are sewing, anime, ponies, music, spineless creatures, and food.

Hi everyone!

I really miss being involved in the community. I can't wait to come back. But it really looks like I won't be able to until January. My defense is next month, and then I'll be finally, FINALLY finished and spend a well-deserved Christmas with my family. Since it's been ages since I last did any sewing, I want to start off with a practice project before going back to doing commissions (and once January rolls around I'll only be working part time so I'll have TONS of time for commissions! So excited!). What I'd like to do is what I've been promising myself I'll do for more than a year now - make a plush of (at least) one of my OCs!

Will you help me decide who to make? I have ideas for all three (Exo at the top of this journal, Slip and Pet down at the bottom) and just can't choose. I'd be super grateful if you'd vote for your favorite in this poll: fireflytwinkletoes.deviantart.…

Like I said, I can't wait to be back. It's like a part of my life has been missing for ages now. Just a bit longer.

Hey Hannah, can I ask you a little about studying marine-biologi? It's for a school projectLlama Emoji-66 (Orly) [V3]

Sure, go ahead! If you give me a numbered list of questions to start, that'll probably work well.
TheGurlWithThePony Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015   Artist
Okay, thank you! ^^
So let me see.

1. Why did you choose to study marine biology? :3

2. Is it tough? :P

3. What's your favorite part of it?

4. What's your least favorite part?

5. Have you ever been out swimming with any kind of underwater animal? :D

That was the five questions ^^

1. There are several reasons I chose to study marine biology. One of the most basic is that I've had a love for the ocean and finding things that are in it since I was a very small child - I lived right by the sea growing up and spent as much time in it, or by it, as I could. I  would look for eels and crabs in the rocks and put them in buckets or sand bowls so that I could watch them. When I was 12, I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Raratonga in the Cook Islands - a tropical island with reefs and an explosion of life that was absolutely fascinating to me. In high school I was torn between going into something artsy (fashion design, I thought at one point) or sciency. I actually hated the Biology class we had in high school, but I ended up doing some volunteering with a local salmon hatchery, and decided that higher level education in biology would probably be a lot more satisfying than the classes I'd been taking in a backwater small town high school. I ended up going to the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island, which has a strong marine biology program. At first I just did general biology, but I did still find the marine stuff the most interesting, and took more of those kinds of classes. One of the best experiences I had was taking a course at the Bamfield Marine Biological Station here on the island. The more I learn about marine animals, particularly invertebrates, the more I am fascinated by their diversity and incredible flexibility with which they solve the basic problems of life (eating, moving, defending themselves, hiding). I enjoyed my Undergraduate program enough that I decided to do a Masters program in marine biology as well, which I am currently working on.

2. It has been tough in a lot of ways. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, which has been good for my grades and getting scholarships, but not so good for my mental health. I'm glad every day for the people I have around me that support and encourage me. I've learned an awful lot not just about marine biology, but who I am as a person and what my capabilities are. I know now, for example, that I am not cut out to be a researcher and would rather go into something like teaching, so that I can help others to see that the ocean and its life is as fascinating as I find it. My Masters program led me to have my first experience with depression, but there were many, many reasons for that. I still love the animals I study and find them fascinating, but I find the actual process of research frustrating and unfulfilling.

3. My favorite part is either just looking at the animals, taking pictures of them and thinking about how they work, OR, after finding out something new, reveling in the fact that for a short period of time, I am literally the only person on the planet that knows that thing.

4. My least favorite part is definitely giving oral presentations of my findings. I've had to do a lot of presentations (powerpoint talks) over the course of my Masters program studying jellyfish. People tell me it gets better the more you do it. It's gotten worse and worse for me every time, to the point where I have a panic attack at the very thought of giving a presentation. I will be very happy to never, ever, have to do that ever again.

5. I've swum with a lot of animals! In tropical places I've swum with skates and rays, schools of bright fish, moray eels, turtles, and flatworms. Although they don't swim, I've snorkeled by all kinds of other creatures like urchins, sea stars, giant clams, and of course corals.

Let me know if you need anything else! I hope this is a little bit interesting :P

Oh my god those palmtops are adorable. I'm tempted to ask for an Octavia one...

I'd like to do a Tavi again some time :)
Tchernobyl Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2015
Good to hear! I'm very tempted to get a mini once my next paycheck comes in... or maybe after. I do have a trip i'm planning that might eat into that. 

(And then i'd have to get a Vinyl later on because they're a pair, dangit! :D)
