I Went to the Seoul Aquarium and I'm Terrified of Fish

Well this was definitely an adventure.


I have a big fear of sharks, but I forgot that I'm actually also very afraid of fish in general. I really wanted to visit the aquarium so I pushed through the fear and vlogged it :) Honestly I was expecting this vlog to be chic and artsy but it turned out to just be me screaming about fish hahah

Watch below:

Fear of interaction with others, failure, and standing infront of large crowds
I have a MAJOR fear of latex balloons. Mylar ones are fine, but I cannot be near latex balloons or else I cry
i have fear of narrow spaces and rejection.
I don't care for alligators and crocodiles. I can look at them at the zoo but you aren't getting me near water where they live. I don't understand how people can swim in water they know alligators inhabit.
it's good to know I'm not the only person terrified of sharks... Just seeing them in the video made me freak out...

Happy update
Happy is doing ok! The first day after bringing him home last week Saturday. I noticed that water turned cloudy and having fish before something wasn’t right. Turns out I didn't add enough water conditioner for him, the food I feed him doesn’t cause cloudiness in the water and he didn't have any waste yet so the only thing could think of was that That Monday night I noticed that he wasn’t moving much and it was still pretty cloudy. Looked at the water temp and it was about 60 degrees so he wasn't moving due to it being cold. So I decided to make new water for him and after the water temp 80 degrees I put him back in his tank after changing water and cleaning the tank. So it's still clear a happy little guy! I noticed he was much happier because he was swimming really fast and was very happy to be in new water that was just right for him. The reason why I didn't do it earlier that day is because I had to go to school but I knew I'd have time to do it later after I get home from school. Also I had to leave the heater on for him during the day and night because when My mom came home tuesday to turn the Heater on it was 60 for his temperature. Normally a few degrees cooler or warmer woudn't be bad but the temperature that it was at was way to cold. after testing my theory, I came home early on Wednesday since school closed, and i was correct with the temp being exactally at 80. He loves it around 76-80 and he's a happy little fella. He even started going into his little cave Anime Obsession Crew! Please let me know if you'd like to be added or removed.

Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats: The Psychology Behind the Difference
Do you want to know the difference between a cat and a dog? Most pet owners won’t even register that question in the grand scheme. After all, these days, it seems that every household has at least one furry friend who is always happy to see you when you come home from work. While there are many reasons why owning a cat or a dog might not be the best idea for every single person and their home, in general, pet lovers and guardians agree on one thing: both cats and dogs are undeniably beautiful pets to have in our lives. So, what is the reason why so many people prefer having one over the other? Psychologists have identified several key differences, which may help explain why they are better for different people and their homes. Dogs are Man’s Best Friend Dogs are indeed one of man’s best friends. These loyal animals are always happy to see their owners, even if they’ve been away for a few hours. Dog owners often report feeling happier and more connected to others after spending time with their canine companions. The reason dogs make such great companions can be attributed to several factors. First, dogs have a powerful capacity to be unconditionally loving toward their owners. In most cases, these animals don’t expect anything from their human companions in return. They want to be with their owners. Cats are Women’s Best Friends Many people quickly point out that cats are more likely to be female than male. While this may be true, it is important to remember that many other factors are at play. For example, some cat owners have noted that their pets are almost always female, while others have a kitty boy or girl on their hands. One factor likely related to this imbalance is that many owners of male cats have noted that they are often less interested in spending time with their pets than their female counterparts. In any case, the consensus among many pet owners is that while dogs and cats can make great companions, cats are better suited for female humans than males. This might have something to do with the fact that many cats have been noted to have a slightly more aloof personality than dogs do. Dogs Are Loyal and Considered Good Leaders Dogs are known for being loyal companions with an inherent desire to please their owners. These animals are more affectionate than cats and are often quite happy to sit on laps and show gratitude for being cared for. Some cat owners have noted that their furry friends are not particularly keen on cuddling and prefer to sit on someone’s lap and look out the window instead. Over the years, pet owners have noted the importance of teaching their dogs to obey simple commands like “sit” and “stay.” These basic commands are designed to help dogs feel more comfortable around strangers, including police officers and visitors to your home. In addition, some research has been done to determine whether or not owning a dog makes a person more likely to be seen as a leader in society. Even though many dog owners would likely argue that their pet has nothing to do with this, it has been found that people who own dogs are slightly more likely to be seen as leaders. Cats Are Independent and Proud While dogs are often considered loyal, devoted companions, cats are known to be more independent and proud. These animals are often more affectionate than dogs but are less willing to be subservient to their human companions. This might have to do with the fact that many of these animals have been noted to have slightly more aloof personalities. Many pet owners have also said that cats are often much more active than dogs and tend to be more inquisitive than their canine counterparts. This might be because many cats have also been noted to be more self-aware than dogs. Many people who have owned cats have indicated that they are often much more likely to come when their owners call, even when they are not particularly fond of the idea. Conclusion If any lessons can be learned from all of this, many different types of people and households might be interested in adding a pet to their lives, but they may only sometimes be a good fit for some of them. Luckily, psychologists have identified some key differences between cats and dogs that may help to explain why and how one might be a better fit for a particular person and their home.

Went out with my friend! I totally didn't plan this to happen but I had my friend come with me to the pet store called Premier Pet Supplies. She recommended I go there to get my stuff and a Fish, we checked out what they had, it was a small section of their Fish but It really caught my eye of all the colors they ahd for their decals and stones. The Betta Fish was so Beautiful! There wasn't many in stock that we saw maybe 5-8 containers. I was looking for a male Betta Because their fins are much bigger than the femals and the male's have beautiful fins There He Was!! I couldn't Find a Black Betta Fish which kinda made me sad because if there was one, he would come home instanlly and be named Gajeel or Panther Lily....but there he was....I couldn't let this go by without picking this little guy Say hello to Happy! Decided to go with Happy from Fairy Tail because he is as cute as Happy! Also I couldn't resist of how beautiful he was! Happy He's a Blue Betta Fish but he also has a bit a purple and Gray in his fins. His fins look spiky near the ends and when he swims they wave side to side, and youcan see every spike he has. New Home I use to have that small castle in it but decided to get something knew because he would be to big for that small castle. So I bought him a cave for him to go in and out of. There's a Thermonitor in there with him so I know the temperature of his water so it doesn't get to cold for him in the winter. My room gets to cold in the winter so I bought in a heater just in case because if you don't know this, Bettas need the water temperature between 76-80 degress Fahrenheit. My doesn't get much heat in the room, and I rather be safe than sorry for my beautiful Blue Betta Fish. I'll be checking to see where it's at tonight and tomorrow morning while I feed him. Would you like to see him regularly? I may start posting his status on here if you guys would like that? Or jsut to see pictures of him? Let me know :)
9 Endangered Animals We May Lose In Our Lifetime‍
Wildlife conservation is an ongoing battle. Humans are encroaching on animal habitats, cutting down natural forests, and polluting the environment at an alarming rate. Many species are on the brink of extinction as a result. These endangered animals may not survive another century if things don't change soon. Many are on the list because of human interference, while others are battling new diseases or natural disasters triggered by climate change. As a result, many conservationists believe that the current generation might be the last to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitats. Below is a list of some of the most endangered animals in the world today – and what you can do to help them survive. Sumatran Orangutan The Sumatran orangutan is the smallest species of orangutan. It lives only in the dense forests of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, where its numbers are fast dwindling due to deforestation and poaching. Only around 7,000 of these apes are left in the wild, while only about 200 individuals live in captivity. The species is critically endangered and may go extinct if nothing is done to save it. Due to their unique looks, orangutans are a key attraction for wildlife tourism. They are also crucial in the fight against climate change. Tropical forests store large amounts of carbon, but if they are cut down, it is released into the atmosphere as CO2. Saving the Sumatran orangutan will, therefore, also help to save the planet. Arabian Oryx The Arabian oryx is another critically endangered species native to the Arabian Peninsula. Estimated to have a population of less than 500 in the wild, these antelopes are often captured for conservation breeding programs. In the 1980s, the last few wild oryxes were brought into captivity. Scientists have since used selective breeding to revive the species, successfully increasing its numbers to several thousand. The Arabian oryx is an important symbol for the desert country of Qatar, which funded the breeding program. Hopefully, the deserts of the peninsula will sustain a wild population of oryxes again in the future. The Arabian oryx can be found in many zoos worldwide, where they are often used as ambassadors for their wild cousins in conservation campaigns. You can help save the oryx by supporting organizations that help to protect wild animals. Rhinoceros The rhinoceros is one of the most threatened species on the planet. Only around 30% of rhino species are estimated to still exist in the wild, and many are critically endangered. There are several rhinoceros subspecies, but the Javan, Sumatran, and Black Rhinoceros have fewer than 100 individuals left in the wild. The Northern White Rhinoceros has been declared extinct in the wild, with only a few individuals in captivity remaining. The rhinoceros is hunted for its horn, which is thought to have medicinal and aphrodisiac powers. There is no scientific evidence that this is true, but the high demand for rhino horn has driven rhinoceros poaching to extreme levels. African Elephant The African elephant is the world's largest mammal. It has been around for millions of years and has survived different ice ages and floods. However, the elephant may not be able to survive the current human-driven extinction crisis. Elephants are poached for their tusks and used to make jewelry and other decorative items. They are also threatened by habitat loss. The African elephant population (Loxodonta africana) has dropped dramatically recently due to poaching. If nothing is done to save the African elephant, no wild herds will be left in the next decade. Many people have fought against poaching to provide a future for these giants. You can join by visiting your local zoo and educating yourself about elephant issues. Giant Panda The giant panda is the most adorable animal off the endangered species. So few animals are instantly recognizable or loved at first sight, and the panda symbolizes peace. Yet these adorable bears are at risk of extinction. Pandas live only in China's Sichuan province, and they are hunted for their fur and also for their organs and bones. Pandas are incredibly difficult to breed in captivity. Only about one cub per year is born to each mother, and they are usually unhealthy. Many babies are stillborn, and those that live rarely survive to adulthood. The Giant Panda is a flagship species for China, and it is doing its best to preserve it. You can help save pandas by supporting panda conservation programs and raising awareness of the issues pandas face. Blue Whale The blue whale is the largest animal that ever lived. It can grow up to 100 feet in length, and a newborn calf might weigh close to 1 ton. Blue whales were hunted extensively in the 20th century, with the most significant number of kills occurring between 1946 and 1949. In total, more than 400,000 blue whales were killed by whalers in the first half of the 20th century. Since the International Whaling Commission implemented a moratorium on blue whale hunting in the early 1980s, the species numbers have slowly begun to recover. However, blue whales continue to be affected by ocean noise pollution, marine pollution, entanglement in fishing gear, and other man-made threats. Sumatran Rhino The Sumatran rhino is the world's smallest species of rhinoceros. It has been driven to extinction by poaching for its horns and forest fires. In the 1990s, only around 15 Sumatran rhinos were left worldwide. Conservationists captured these rhinos and bred them in zoos, which has helped to expand the species' population to over 100 individuals. They are rarely seen in the wild and are one of the most endangered species in the world. The Sumatran rhino is also one of the most poorly understood animals. The Sumatran rhino has been given several last chances to survive. The Indonesian and Malaysian governments have stepped up their anti-poaching efforts, and the rhinos are being closely monitored in the wild. These rare rhinos symbolize hope for the future, but they need our help to make it. Chimpanzee The chimpanzee is our closest genetic relative and an endangered species. In the wild, they are threatened by deforestation, poaching, and diseases that humans may spread. Chimpanzees are so closely related to humans that human diseases can infect them. They can also infect humans with diseases they've been exposed to, such as Ebola and hepatitis. The most pressing threats to chimpanzees are habitat loss and the bushmeat trade. Bushmeat is a wild game, such as primates, hunted for food. These practices have led to a dramatic drop in the chimpanzee population, and many subspecies are at risk of extinction. Researchers have also discovered that chimpanzees are among the few animals capable of passing the human flu to other animals. Black Footed Penguin The black-footed penguin is one of the world's rarest penguin species. Once abundant along the southern coasts of Africa, the black-footed penguin now survives only in the East African country of South Africa. Black-footed penguin populations have been steeply declining since the 1990s. Scientists believe the main threats to the species are climate change, fishing, and tourism. The black-footed penguin is an important symbol of South Africa. It is the official mascot of the country's largest city, Cape Town, and it also appears on the logos of many conservation organizations. Any effort to save the black-footed penguin will benefit the environment of the entire southern African coast. Conclusion The future of the world's wildlife is in our hands. We have the power to make a difference by reducing our carbon footprint, protecting forest ecosystems, and educating others about the issues facing endangered animals. If we work together, we can ensure that these beautiful species survive for future generations. These species have been around for millions of years and have survived extreme conditions and dramatic climate changes. However, they may only survive another century if things change soon. Unfortunately, many are on the list because of human interference, while others are battling new diseases or natural disasters triggered by climate change. As responsible humans, we must do everything we can to save these species.
Which animals motivate your writing?
We all feel that way when it comes to writing a book; we want to get started right away. However, if you are a major animal lover like I am, you will probably end up including a pet or an exotic animal in the novel. Who doesn't enjoy a nice animal-themed tale? What do you consider as you write your story? What about the animals you should employ, rather than the story, the characters, or the backstory? I have a variety of animals, and I'm currently creating a middle grade fantasy adventure book series. Most of them are fantastical animals. I consider the types of creatures I should utilize when I create my stories. Typically, that occurs right away. I'll list the top five animals I want to include in my novel and then, as I begin to write and approach the scene with that animal, I'll keep it in mind until I get there. Including animals in your story can enhance it with humor, gore, adventure, or even cuteness. If you are having trouble with word count, it can also help you add more words to the book. If that is all you have, and you are writing a book about a girl who wants to be a doctor. You'll consider what to write next as you sit there in your chair. Until your dog enters the room and licks your hand, you continue to think and wonder. After meeting your dog with a grin, a thought forms. Perhaps your primary character would like a dog. The plot then takes on an unexpected turn when the dog is introduced. I've experienced this before. My main character was having coffee when I put a black cat sitting by the window in the very first chapter of the first book of my middle-grade book series. I didn't anticipate that to occur. I mean, I knew I would include the black cat later in the story or in the following few pages, but I wasn't prepared for it at this moment. And I was included tigers, wolves, dragons, and undead animals in the second book. The list kept on, and I relished adding each item. What animals most motivate me? Well, that depends entirely on the type of novel I'm penning. I will consider what creatures are likely to be present if I'm writing a book about a forest, lake, or possibly even a forgotten cemetery in the heart of the woods. I enjoy writing primarily about black cats. Of course, there are also every variety of huge cat and exotic animal you can imagine. Some authors conduct study and learn about the habits, diets, and lifestyles of the animals they will be writing about. For this middle-grade book series, I did that. After making a list of every animal I intended to use in the story, I researched them and took copious notes on everything I would need to know in order to write the scene. Therefore, when you add animals to a story, it will make the story better than what you had imagined and it may change the entire idea and make it more extreme. VERSION FRENCH 11 animaux pour vous inspirer à écrire une histoire fantastique C'est ce que nous ressentons tous lorsqu'il s'agit d'écrire un livre : nous voulons nous y mettre tout de suite. Cependant, si vous êtes un grand amateur d'animaux comme moi, vous finirez probablement par inclure un animal de compagnie ou un animal exotique dans le roman. Qui n'apprécie pas une belle histoire sur le thème des animaux ? De quoi tenez-vous compte lorsque vous écrivez votre histoire ? Qu'en est-il des animaux que vous devez employer, plutôt que de l'histoire, des personnages ou de la trame de fond ? J'ai une grande variété d'animaux et je suis en train de créer une série de livres d'aventures fantastiques pour les classes moyennes. La plupart d'entre eux sont des animaux fantastiques. Je réfléchis aux types de créatures que je dois utiliser lorsque je crée mes histoires. En général, cela se fait tout de suite. Je dresse la liste des cinq animaux que je veux inclure dans mon roman, puis, lorsque je commence à écrire et que j'aborde la scène avec cet animal, je le garde à l'esprit jusqu'à ce que j'y arrive. L'inclusion d'animaux dans votre histoire peut l'enrichir d'humour, de gore, d'aventure ou même de mignonnerie. Si vous avez des problèmes avec le nombre de mots, cela peut aussi vous aider à ajouter des mots au livre. Si c'est tout ce que vous avez, et que vous écrivez un livre sur une fille qui veut être médecin. Vous réfléchirez à ce que vous allez écrire ensuite, assis sur votre chaise. Jusqu'à ce que votre chien entre dans la pièce et vous lèche la main, vous continuez à réfléchir et à vous interroger. Après avoir rencontré votre chien avec un sourire, une pensée se forme. Peut-être que votre personnage principal aimerait avoir un chien. L'intrigue prend alors un tour inattendu lorsque le chien est introduit. J'ai déjà vécu cela. Mon personnage principal prenait un café lorsque j'ai mis un chat noir assis près de la fenêtre dans le tout premier chapitre du premier livre de ma série de livres pour enfants. Je n'avais pas prévu que cela se produise. Je veux dire, je savais que j'inclurais le chat noir plus tard dans l'histoire ou dans les quelques pages suivantes, mais je n'y étais pas préparé à ce moment-là. Et on m'a inclus des tigres, des loups, des dragons et des animaux morts-vivants dans le deuxième livre. La liste ne cessait de s'allonger, et je me réjouissais d'ajouter chaque élément. Quels sont les animaux qui me motivent le plus ? Eh bien, cela dépend entièrement du type de roman que je suis en train de rédiger. Je réfléchirai aux créatures susceptibles d'être présentes si j'écris un livre sur une forêt, un lac, ou même un cimetière oublié au cœur des bois. J'aime écrire principalement sur les chats noirs. Bien sûr, il existe aussi toutes les variétés de chats énormes et d'animaux exotiques que vous pouvez imaginer. Certains auteurs font des études et se renseignent sur les habitudes, le régime alimentaire et le mode de vie des animaux sur lesquels ils vont écrire. C'est ce que j'ai fait pour cette série de livres pour adultes. Après avoir dressé une liste de tous les animaux que j'avais l'intention d'utiliser dans l'histoire, j'ai fait des recherches sur eux et pris de nombreuses notes sur tout ce que j'aurais besoin de savoir pour écrire la scène. Par conséquent, lorsque vous ajoutez des animaux à une histoire, celle-ci sera meilleure que ce que vous aviez imaginé et pourra changer toute l'idée et la rendre plus extrême.
