About me I'm a mid/late-20s girl from the US, currently attending medical school. My interests include reading, playing video games, watching shows/movies, hiking, camping, and weight lifting! I love to travel any chance I get, and love meeting new people. Admittedly, I don't spend as much time on neopets as I used to, but I'm sticking around for all the lovely friends I've made over the years!

Achievements

Workin' on those goals! These are some of my proudest achievements on the site throughout the years! I've done my best to remember the dates for some of these, but sadly most were lost with my old portfolio coding before my hiatus.
UC Royal Girl Cybunny Welcomed sweet Purebbe home on April 23rd, 2018! Been dreaming of owning one for years, but never quite had an offer for one until a lucky trade got me into the same tier as this beautiful gal. Safe to say she'll never be leaving!
Train Tappan to 1,500 HSD It was a long road but she finally reached 1,500 HSD (or 500 evens) on April 5th, 2018! This project was started when Tappan was at 772 HSD, on August 11th, 2017. Making it to the ninja school definitely expedited things, as well as cookie training. Next stop is 2,100 HSD (or 700 evens), then max boosts!
Stamp Collector - Faerieland Something Has Happened! You are now eligible to use 'Stamp Collector - Faerieland' as an avatar on the NeoBoards! Very happy to finally have this avatar, and as #365 to top it all off! I had been hoping to utilize the Charity Corner to make buying the last few UBs a bit cheaper, but when that didn't happen.. just had to bite the bullet and go for it! Ended up getting really lucky and sniping 2 Aethia stamps, and selling one for double, essentially getting that one for free!
Maraquan Draik Since returning from my hiatus, I'd been meaning to reform my aquatic side account. A Maraquan Draik is one part of this, along with a RG/RB Peophin pair and Maraquan Aisha. Lou was welcomed home on February 11th, 2018 thanks to the very lovely Ann!
UC Faerie Draik After months of trading, and dealing with a heartbreaking reversal, Kelyska was finally welcomed home on February 3rd, 2018! Huge thanks to Kahlan for making this possible. Kelyska is already popular with her fellow faeries: Lagartho, Lefiday, Efuife, and Lorintha! Booktastic badge achieved on February 4th, 2018 with 146 books.
Specialty Shop Spectacles I had foolishly traded these guys away after returning from my hiatus, and for much less than they were worth. Finally found a lovely NC trader and replaced these on January 28th, 2018! You have added Specialty Shop Spectacles into your closet!
360 Avatars Earning avatars happens so seldomly now for me that I certainly didn't expect #360 to get here so quickly, much less with my last needed random avatar Brightvale! This grand achievement happened unexpectedly on January 16th, 2018.
Brightvale Avatar This darned avatar has given me so much grief over the years *LOL*. The wheel finally deemed me worthy, after 15+ years, and awarded my last random avatar on January 16, 2018. I couldn't believe my eyes and left the tab with the wheel open for hours!
UC Faerie Peophin An UC Faerie Peophin had been a long time dream pet of mine since I was a teen. I had owned one once before, but had adopted her out to a dear friend when I went on hiatus. I missed owning one of these beautiful faeries, and so after trading my BD pet I welcomed Jackau home on January 12, 2018 with the help of Michelle. On February 16th, 2018 I swapped for my favorite UC Faerie Peophin, Serdyn - thanks to Carrot!
Petpet Spotlight Tappan has a very special place in my heart, and so it is a goal of mine to earn her as many trophies as possible. I had been trying for this particular trophy for years, and Tappan's petpet Fluffkins finally earned the petpet spotlight on January 12th, 2018! This trophy has yet to be awarded, but TNT is aware of the glitch. I hope its soon added to Tappan's nice collection already of: Honorary Booktastic, PPL, and BC trophies! You can read her story in week 687.
1,000 HSD I've been training Tappan every single day ever since Sym has returned her to me and on January 2, 2018 she finally hit 1,000 HSD. Thank you red codestones, faerie quest cookies and training cookies!! Now that she is at the ninja school, I hope to quickly reach 1,500 HSD!
175 Kadoaties I'm an overfeeder, and I have my certain spot so watch out! :D On January 2, 2018 I reached feeding 175 kadoaties, which is well on its way to my goal of 200! I can't get enough of these yowling little kitties.
12 full rows of game trophies Collecting game trophies is something I got into after joining Aethia *stares longingly at Claire's collection*. It has since been a long goal of mine to complete as many full rows as I can. I finally completed my 12th full row on January 1, 2018 with earning Aaa's Revenge, Sorcerers' Skirmish, Spinacles, and Magma Blaster! Now just to upgrade the bronze ones I have to make them look all pretty!
UC Faerie Ixi An UC Faerie Ixi was the very first UC I ever had on this site, and Hylliah was welcomed home in homage to my dear old "Crystal" on September 17, 2017. Her name also reminds me of the Goddess Hylia from LoZ, one of my all time favorite games! She will never be up for trade or up for adoption.
Lottery Avatar I thought this avatar was going to be an impossible goal, especially after having won in December 2016 and being the second person (of two winners) listed. However, after some amazing tips from the Charter Lottery board on how to be listed first, I won the lottery avatar on August ‎11, ‎2017 (along with over 75 others) with a share of 13,786 NPs and this avatar for #358!
Stamp Collector - Sea Shells I was very excited to come back from my hiatus to find there was an avatar for this album! On July 30, 2017 I completed my Sea Shells album by adding the last one, Golden Shell for avatar #357. It's the first album I've ever completed, but certainly not the last.
20 NT Publications Submitting comics to the Neopian Times became another fun hobby of mine on the site, even after earning the Neopian Times Star avatar. I reached 20 total publications with my comic 'Plot Paranoia' in issue 579, which was a collaboration between myself and Elise. At the time of this update I currently have 28 publications, with my eye on reaching 30!
NeoBoard Avatar Collector CHAMPION I have since lost the date of achieving this trophy, but having been collecting avatars for so long I had to include one of my proudest achievements on the site! Many thanks to those who waited to reset, making this trophy possible!
Neopian Times Star Another one of my favorite avatars, and probably the one I've put the most time into, was earned with 9 comics and 1 article. It was awarded after my comic 'Momma Knows Best' published in issue 479.
MSPP on All Four Sides On September 11, 2013 I was lent MSPP on my three remaining side accounts by a very generous lender. Thank you so much for trusting me with your MSPP, I won't forget your kindness :) Another one of the big 3 avatars on all accounts, which was a huge goal for me this year. 2 down, 1 to go! Hooray!
BGC on All Four Sides On August 11th, 2013 a very kind Bony Grarrl Club lender lent all my four side accounts BGC. This was the first step towards my big goal of having the Big Three on all my four side account. Thanks so much to my lovely lender!
Gallery Spotlight Chosen for spotlight #487, my gallery 'Scrub a Dub Dub' was dedicated to my real-life Border Collie puppy. He would play so much when he was younger that he'd get dirty very often, and was such a good pup about baths that he'd let me wash him regularly. My gallery showcased anything bath related, with a little over 245 items, including tubs, shampoo, conditioner, bubbles, and sponges.
All Star ALTADOR CUP VIII For the second year in a row, I reached the highest possible rank in the Altador Cup. It was especially fun reaching this rank with my best friend, and her first time reaching All Star.
All Star ALTADOR CUP VII For the first time ever I reached All Star Rank in AC VII. It was a lot of hard work but super rewarding to earn the top rank of the cup!
Neopian Times Writer My very first NT comic 'Weewon't!' was accepted into issue 450, earning one of my all-time favorite and most used avatars! The prize for this issue was the Neopian Times Writing Quill, which I sold long ago.
Avatar Collector Avatar I have since lost the date of achieving this avatar, and with how many avatars were needed, but avatar collecting is one of my main hobbies on the site. Getting this avatar would not have been possible without the kind collectors who waited to reset. As such, I wait to reset until later in the month as well!
UC Plushie Directory UC Plushies are some of my favorite pets, and so naturally I made a directory of them! "The Toy Box" was launched on July 16, 2013 and grew to over 100 plushies listed before I left for my hiatus. While I don't have the time to maintain it anymore, the site is still being hosted by my dear friend Sym on this page.
Neoboard Pens I'm simply addicted to neoboard pens. At the time of this update I have 49 pens on my main account, for a total of 50 fonts! I love having the opportunity to change my pets and pens around and having it all match nicely, especially matching with my best friends!
Premade CSS Site Neopets is what really got me into coding, and I was the proud owner of 'Mellie's CSS' for a number of years. While I don't have the time to maintain it anymore, the site is still being hosted by my dear friend Sym on this page.
Star Gazing Background This background had been one of my most-wanted NP wearables for the longest time. It's firmly fixed to my closet!
Joined Aethia I joined Aethia initially in February 2013, a month after its grand opening. After returning from my hiatus and trying out a few other guilds, I missed the encouraging community and challenges that Aethia offered and so rejoined on August 19, 2017!
