April 2016: Sadly to say Link passed away. I hit deep depression for about a good year or so, and I was in a dark place and I wasn't myself because I lost a piece of my soul that day. So I stayed away from social media and wasn't as active. He lived a long 15 years and he passed away at home in my arms. We payed a vet to come to our home because I promised him his last moments wouldn't be at the vet. He got to eat a whole roasted Chicken.
June 2016: Only working 3 months at a new movie theater and they promoted me to Manager! I am so proud of myself, I've always wanted to be a manager at a movie theater! I'm still there and working hard! It's crazy at times but I love my job and my coworkers. I am working even harder to become a Senior Manager!
Sep 2016: I got another little one. A corgi puppy girl. As a memory of Link I named her Zelda. She's helped me so much. To me, it's not replacing Link. He can never be replaced. It's started a new journey with a little one. And I know he's watching us from the other side. I deiced to make my corgi her own Youtube Channel. Feel free to check it out here: Zelda the Corgi's YOUTUBE CHANNEL
April 2017: I got my first Tattoo! It's a legend of Zelda Tattoo with Linky's paw print on the side. In the paw is some of Link's Ashes too. I had it done on the one year of his passing. The same day. Ever since I got this tattoo, I haven't felt so sad about his passing. Sure I still cry from time to time, but it's like I always feel him close by. My depression got so much better ever since!
I recorded me getting inked, so here's the video for that here!
I haven't really gone to conventions in 2017 because I've been working very hard at the theater and trying to make it more popular with the remodel and new bar coming. Lots of projects! But I plan to attend as many cons as I can for 2018, and even be part of skits again!
