My student in China challenged me to participate in a fun annual monthly event for the month of May. The Theme, Mermaid. I've accepted and it was a lot more than I originally anticipated.

Mermaids are generally characterized as a kind of traditional and classical. However, I wanted to bring the idea of a mermaid up to modern speed. She's currently enjoying her time alone in a booming underwater city, checking her social media status before she sleeps. She's not so much different than us afterall!
