If someone ever says they know themselves, truly and wholly, I would not believe them. I learn new things about myself everyday. Some things I think I have known for a while, but I have never truly realized their depth. I have never realized that animals are a legitimate addiction, even though I have known it for years.
I never realized that whenever I ask for a new pet, I always, always, say, "After this, I will not ask for more. My collection will be complete."
I realized that today when I asked Dad if I could get this little creature instead of a coldwater tank:
"Please, Daddy! If I still want it by the time it is my birthday, can't I have it instead of my coldwater tank? I could empty all the water out, and it wouldn't take much care."
What Dad said next went something like this:
"It is not another animal that bothers me, but that this is an addiction that cannot be satisfied. Do you realize that every animal you get is supposed to be the last one?…
hi, you, yes you, come on stop in for a minute!
sorry for being absent for such a long time... i will try and be better about that, but no promises...
see, i just started (just started meaning i started in august) community college, and while it is super
fun and awesome... it eats my time up. my priorities right now are as follows:
1. take care of myself on a day to day basis, as well as my animals
2. this is not less important per say, but just a bit less urgent, read my bible every day and go to
church every week.
3. turn schoolwork in on time with as good of a grade as i can muster. 4. keep cages clean
5. keep room clean
that last one is getting a bit neglected... although
the other four are all doing pretty well, and all
have about equal priority. if you noticed, keeping up with my blog and youtube channel
were not items on that list. that is on purpose. sorry for neglecting this, but keeping myself fed,
having good(ish) grades, keeping my animals alive and wel…
I always have goals. I try and reach them, but in all honesty, that's a rare occasion. It's not that I don't want to keep my cages clean, I just get distracted. It's not that I am not willing to put the work in to get fit, it's just, well, I get distracted, I am not consistent, or an event comes up that prevents me from doing my workout or eating well. I have never really had a real new year's resolution, but this year that is going to change. One 'resolution' or goal has been to get back to my vegan diet. I don't understand why people wait until new year to make resolutions; it makes sense to maybe come up with things to change for the new year, but if you want to change something about yourself, don't wait! Do it. That's what I did with going vegan. I didn't prepare days ahead, I just decided one day, hey, I have beans and rice and quinoa, that means I can get complete protein, I still have dairy free shakes, I can do this, and I did i…
