Tonight baby Freija came out to eat for the first time. I left her some meal worms in a cup on her first night with me and the cup was empty in the morning, but today I fed her myself.
She started peeking out through the hole in her cactus as the adult geckos were eating on the table next to her terrarium (it’s on top of the small freezer which is next to my computer table where I fed my other geckos) and I decided to see if she’s hungry.
I put a worm in front of her cactus and sure enough, she stepped out to catch it. I placed the next worm a little further away so she was forced to step out more and by the fourth worm she was out enough to see my other geckos walking around on the table and she dashed right out of her cactus to stare at them. But when she realized she was out in the open, she quickly scurried back into her cactus :)
Five minutes later, she was out again and staring at me through the glass and I gave her two more meal worms and she ate both of them outside of her cactus. Success!
I made sure to talk to her before each worm and to stand in front of her as she ate so she’ll get used to my presence and associate my voice and face with food which is something positive for her.

I'd buy your things for sure!! but we should learn that it's not the only reason people will buy things, sometimes it's because the seller knows a bunch of people, they're -really- popular already, not their first time selling... I wanted to say there's more factors than "just" good art to selling prints. it sucks!! but try to cheer up, I know you'll sell better in the future ♥♥
Mmhm very true ;——-; yes while I was sitting there I suddenly regretted leaving my older blog under-base that had much more fans/followers than this blog, and people know me better with that url…
But I choose to leave without regret- so if I had hit the bottom now there’s nowhere else but to go up :]
Also I was a first timer and I still had some fun in the middle like the food notalickofsense provided us like an angel
so it wasn’t completely depressing ahh/
Hhnng.. tho really there were so much good memories of it that were priceless still ^——-^ meeting new talented people like bisouette ;v; gosh
and also seeing cool things//
like how I got these dumb dumbs because I couldn’t resist how cute they were ;v;<3
I’m keeping the angry red Niki one that looks like he’s trying to say ‘you asshole’ at any given minute hahah// and the other two are presents uvu!
baby freija has spent the last two days hiding in her stone cactus, though she does occasionally peek out through the hole in the side and stare at me as i play mass effect. the taming of baby geckos is a long process and the first step is to wait until she has enough courage to come out of her hiding place.
anyway, i think i spent more than six hours playing mass effect 2 today. my ass is super sore from sitting and my shoulders are stiff, but i can’t stop playing! i wish i didn’t have to sleep because i just want to know what happens next. i ended tonight’s gaming session after shepard and garrus did some hilariously awkward flirting out of the blue as garrus was talking about wrestling or something :P
there are so many interesting characters in the game and i really like the visual look of all the alien races. i’m eager to spend time with every member of my team which is pretty surprising because i usually end up ignoring about half of the characters in a video game. i think my favorites so far are garrus, tali, jack and samara.
I find the whole process of taming a gecko really fascinating! Please keep the tumblrs posted! (maybe you can make a gecko or freija tag?)
Yussssss perfect on making progress on the game!
Um… tip. Since you are enjoying it, I think its a good idea to mention… uh, do all the little side missions when you can. Before major missions sometimes. Uh… it sometimes pays off. At some point.
