    Hey everyone just thought I make a friendly post here on how I’m doing and for those new here then I say hey let me tell you a little about my self since it’s been several months being back on here for a single moment that no one probably remembers me (just kidding). Anyway I am just getting through enjoying my winter break doing things such as fishing, drawing( which I have not done in quite some time) and hanging with family but now I am going back down to college (Texas A&M) that is right along the beach of southern Texas so that will be a 6 hour drive for the weekend. Classes start Monday so I’m looking forward to a new semester of being a marine biologist (only this one plus two more semesters and I earn my bachelors). I am still currently helping out in tagging sharks for research so I will be most excited about that. I’ve been thinking of where to work after graduation but anywhere state or federal that’s along my interest of study will be worth it in the long run. Where ever I end up though state or federal I believe will be worth it in the long run.
    Now on your something important! recently about a month ago I had just gotten my very own personal puppy who is a 14 week old yellow Labrador retriever. He is a very docile thing with good temperament. He loves to play fetch and knows how to sit stay and come when I tell him to. Lately he’s been helping me through tough situations such a few weeks ago I was really upset after an employee at a petsmart was so rude to me that I went back to my car almost in tears. The dog knew what was going on so he laid on my lap and for some reason I felt better so he’s a been good companion so far even helping me through my stress and depression in fact mostly he’s been improving it where I’m not feeling much negativity at all really.

    that’s all I have as far as life goes which is going really great so far. Here is a pic of my dog. BAB93DA1-9DCD-4221-9781-51D2D0363FD3.jpeg

    Sounds like you're still very busy! Your dog looks cute, and seems a good companion already. I hope you have a good semester at college, and enjoy your course, which sounds great. You work very hard, but it must be fascinating.

    What’s the puppy’s name? Is that his very own special blanket, or did he just take the liberty of nesting on it after it fell off your bed?

    I bet you won't have trouble finding a good job after you graduate. You're in a good field for employment.

    I love your puppy. I had a yellow lab who lived to age 12 and he was the best dog I ever owned. I still miss him.
