^ It's so much fun but it is really exhausting... at least the zoo we went to is a pretty big size and there's a lot of hills. (not to mention I went to the gym this morning lol). And today was REALLY hot here so that didn't help. But, it was still really fun! Ask some friends if they want to go at some point, if you have any zoos close by! Don't wait to have kids to go! lol!
I'm over my head and I know it, I know it. I'm doing my best not to show it, to show it.
Whatever it takes to be, what I was meant to be I'm gonna try. ♥

lol I know. Every once in a while I try and get my fiance to go but zoos just make him sad cause he hates seeing the animals all locked up. We went to one years ago and he had an anxiety attack :( so I haven't tried pushing it on him too hard. The Aquarium/Sea World type places (which I usually prefer) are the best I can do with him, but the last time we went to one of those was 2 years ago tomorrow (we went to Sea World the day we got in engaged, which is the only reason I remember the exact date,  I'm not just crazy haha). Buuut yea, sometimes I forget that my friends like to be young again too so maybe I'll ask them.

Oooh the fond memories of the zoo when I was a child...I remember there was a monkey that used to flip everyone off haha.

Aww :( Yeah, I get that. There's a part of me that feels bad because you don't really know how the animals are treated. Like, they have this bird show at the zoo I was at, and those birds are all out in the open, no cage... they all are clipped so they can't fly D: poor things! And there's a new exhibit with hyenas but you can't even see them because they're scared because they're in a new environment :(. I definitely see why it would make him sad. Yeah, if he doesn't like going definitely try asking a friend, I'm sure some of them would love to go! :)

Hahaha oh my goodness! That monkey sounds like he was entertaining xD

Me and my friends (who are zoology people) went to the zoo a few months ago and we were commenting on how sad it was. The bears and other animals were just walking around in circles...it makes the zoo depressing sometimes...they take good care of the animals, but animals just belong in the wild, not in cages and stuff. There were also a bagillion kids there when we went and some stupid 12 year olds were banging on the glass at the ape exibit, where it obviously says not to do that. And one of the gorillas got angry and charged the glass. I felt really bad for it because those kids were being assholes.

Anyway, I'm spending my last day at home today before I go back down for school. Tomorrow me and my parents are driving 4 hours down there and getting my stuff situated in my new place. I kinda want to go back and see everyone again, but I don't really want to go back to school and getting up early. BLECK.

I'm so jealous. I want to be on the water on sunny days like this! Sounds like so much fun! It's exhausting too! I'm always sore the next day. :)

I love coffee in the morning!! I think it's just the best part of the day! :)  Watching some Beverly Hills 90210 on the couch & have a hot cup of java. LOVE IT.


Last night I stayed up wayyy too late playing Mario Kart & Goldeneye on Nintendo 64 & doing personality quizzes with some friends. Haha. Morning comes wayy too fast sometimes.

Sore usually means a good workout, at least! ;)

I have the worst stomach in the world and there's not a lot that doesn't make me sick, even with medication, and coffee's one of them. But I love it way too much to stay away. And oh my God the N64! My sister and I just finished Zelda Ocarina of Time on the the wii. I love that you can buy N64 games in the wii shop! We have Yoshi Story too, yet to be played.

Most people that know me well know that I spoil my little budgie rotten. A few days ago, I realized that he's learned to talk! Budgie don't speak as clearly as bigger birds so I didn't notice for awhile, but my family and I have caught him saying "What you doing, bird?" and "Pretty, pretty bird!" to himself over and over haha. He's always been able to mimic noises, kissing, coughing, my laugh, a door creaking (drives me NUTS), keyboard typing, but this is the first time we've heard actual words. It's very cute, but I'm sure it'll get just as annoying as everything else with time hahaha.
And so it goes, this soldier knows.
