Being merely a infant in blog years, I have yet to establish what exactly this blog is for. Perhaps for pictures. Perhaps for tirades. Or perhaps for my own entertainment. I know for sure that this blog will be VERY random!

I finally did it. I bought a moleskine notebook, and I didn't stop there...I also bought another one. The pocket size version. In red.

I have been eye-ing these beauties for some time, but had no justification for buying one. Well, I got a job this week working as a veterinary technician at UF's College of Veterinary Medicine. Notebooks come in handy for jotting down notes on patients' histories. Plus, this job is very demanding and I am constantly learning new things. I wanted a place were I could record the new things that I learned in the day. I felt like a moleskine notebook is the perfect fit for what I needed. They are sleek and simple, not bulky at all. Plus they have a book mark and an elastic band to keep it closed! I am excited to go into work on Monday and put it to good use.

I also got the sketchbook version.

Childhood Dreams

When I was a kid, I watched Bill Nye the Science Guy religiously. You could say he was my hero. Yes, I was a huge nerd, but that is not the point. He recently came to UF, and I was able to attend a speaking event. He gave an excellent speech on environmentalism and the importance of science in fixing today's problems.
After the event, I got to thinking that my childhood self would probably have exploded like something out of a Mythbuster's episode if she new that one day see would see Bill Nye in person. Then I thought about all the things that I have gotten to do, that my childhood self only dreamed about. Live in Africa. Work with Bald Eagles. Fly a plane. SEE BILL NYE IN PERSON. It just makes me excited to think that if I work hard enough the dreams that I have today-now-can someday happen.

The Kookaburra Lives

I sincerely apologise for completely neglecting this blog! This semester has proved to be trialing, but I am almost done, and I intend to fill this blog with truely splendid thing. So please continue to visit.

For now I leave you with a little update of what I did this summer...

I spent two months in Namibia volunteering with the Cheetah Conservation Fund. It was absolutely the best thing I have ever done in my entire life! To find out more about the Cheetah Conservation Fund, go to I intend to post some more pictures from my trip and maybe even post some of my entries from my journal that I kept while I was there.

The picture above is of my favorite cheetah, Solo.

New APT!

Ugh...why is moving such a bear?

I will be posting pictures of my new apartment later. It is gorgeous! I just need to get it in order to take a good picture.

By the way, the picture above is from my summer trip to Yellowstone. I took that picture from about 30 feet away.

Everest: Beyond the Limit

The mini series on Discovery Channel, Everest: Beyond the Limit, has brought me back to my slight obsession with said mountain. This Sunday at 5pm Discovery is going to have a marathon of the entire series, if you would like to catch it.

There is something about the mountain that is bewitching, and not just mount everest, but all mountains. I am a skier. I have been skiing since I was 6. Maybe I sound weird by saying this, but something comes over me when I am skiing. No matter how dangerous the weather is getting, I want to stay out there. I want to conquer the mountain. It gives me power while at the same time I feel so small. I love it!

The article gives a great insight to what is presently happening to Mount Everest. It is very tragic. The author makes a lot of good points on how the climbers that go to Mount Everest are changing. Take a look at it!

My roommate got rush tickets to go see Hairspray last night! I had a test today, but I couldn't reject to offer!I had a blast. I am so glad I went. It gave me this "Broadway High" that gave me enough energy to stay up 'til one in the morning to finish studying for my test.

Actually, I saw Hairspray in New York a little less than a year ago, but I love to see the tours to compare it to the ones actually on Broadway. I thought they would have to change a few things since our stage at the Phillips Center is smaller than most stages, but no. This tour was was exactly like the Broadway one. Actually, I would say that they even had a bit more energy. Granted, the Broadway cast had better singers in actors (they were still amazing!), but, none the less, I really enjoyed the cast last night!

If it is coming your way, I would take up the opportunity to see it. Rush tickets aren't that expensive ( I paid 10 dollars)!

I won the internet!

No, really I did...

Today, I thought I would show you a few sites and blogs that I like to frequent.

One of my favorites it the inspirational Superhero Blog. This one is especially for the ladies out there, but you don't have to be a girl to visit! Andrea Scher is a very talented artist that has some great advise and some great jewelry!

Since I am a little Pixar obsessed. I also visit Luxo and Upcoming Pixar to get my daily dose of Pixar news. They always keep me update on the latest from Emeryville, California. Pixar Planet has a great forum, too! My username is Squishy, so drop by and say hi!

We all know how I visit Cuteoverload about 50 times a day. No matter how bad of a mood I am in, Cute Overload always manages to put a smile on my face!

Last, but certainly not least, if my one of my favorite storyboard artist over at Pixar, Enrico Casarosa. His blog offers up some amazing photographs and sketches!

So, hopefully I have given you some great blogs and sites to fill up your internet appetite!
