I googled “female rats tumors genetic” and got tons of sensational news articles about some study about GMOs and rat tumors.
I just found a pea-sized lump under each of Babs’ arms. I really hope they’re not mammary tumors, but honestly I doubt they’d be anything else. Mammary tumors are EXTREMELY common, and almost always benign, but I’ve had many rats get tumors over the years and it’s always sad to see. She’s barely over a year too.
George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
I can’t watch in-depth making-ofs animated films without getting stupidly emotional. There’s a clip in here (at 14:00), where Chris Sanders, Alessandro Carloni, and Tron Mai are working out the sequence where Hiccup and Toothless first touch, that encapsulates why I want to work in this field.
Decided to try my hand at sculpting again because drawing has been hurting too much lately. I really should finish her face next because it’s creeping me out.

I guess you could think of this as a sort of mental health update from your friendly neighborhood feathered dino blogger. Figured I might have some trans followers who could relate. Heed the tags, this gets a bit tmi.
I could have written this when I was in high school. I had pretty much the same type of dysphoria (voice and reproductive issues), and YMMV of course, but for me taking testosterone made pretty much all of it go away. A lot of the change for me was mental, so I ended up making peace with a lot of things I never thought I would.
If you (or anyone else for that matter) ever need to talk, feel free to shoot me a message. Although my personal problems relating to being trans have shifted to legal/financial rather than physical, I definitely remember how shitty it was just a few years ago.
