Someone taught a raccoon how to finger paint and it's the best thing I've seen a while. Guess that raccoon now has a favorite hobby. And so I thought, what are other people's favorite hobbies? Let's share 'em, Pandas!

I have the same pastimes but not to be dissociative. On the contrary I view them as reflections, ideals and possibilities of our life and use that as a source of inspiration. For example, sympathizing with characters to develop understandings of what others may experience, or revering characters to help see a clearer picture of the paths we should take in our own lives.

The use of cogs makes it very Steampunk. Love them. I'm not obssessed with money, but it strikes me that there certainly is a market for this kinda thing; tobacco tins etc?

As you can probably tell by the scribbles, I like to revise as I write, so please feel free to critique it. This is just the first two pages, so if you want me to post more, please tell me that as well. (Please ignore the mess, I took this in my bedroom.)

Btw, since I'm an orch dork, I named my cello Edward. Ik he looks a little beat up, but he still works like a charm! My best friend also plays cello and we used to play together all the time before the pandemic hit. Also, if you have any song recommendations for me to learn please let me know!!

I have 10 birds atm. Kira is the latest addition to my bird family. I love helping birds like her. She is 30 yearsbold and comes from a home where she lived with another Congo African grey. Sadly enough, the latter started attacking Kira. Forcing her to stay at the bottomnof her cage. I was asked to take her in, and ofcourse that wasnt a problem. I have senegal parrots, a meyer parrot (also bald), ring necked parakeets, turqouise parakeets, kakariki's, and ofcourse Kira. I would love to help more birds just like her. Giving them a home, and all the love and attention that they deserve
