Looks like April showers have brought out some strange May flowers!
It rained all day on-site Sunday, but that doesn't mean a single thing to our totally dauntless, highly-motivated animal husbandry team. After all, even in sloshy mud and under gloomy skies, our residents have to stay healthy, and it's up to the keepers to ensure their well-being. That they do all this with smiles on their faces is quite the bonus!
In this picture, by the way, you see Briana Halliwell (keeper, left), Nick Shingler (meat run, center), and Ashley Watts (keeper, right). Be sure to give them a hearty thanks if you ever see them around and about -- the rest of us on staff certainly appreciate their dedication to the Conservators Center!
We miss you, Ian Salkowski! Saying goodbye to my lovely fur babies! Flying out to Minnesota this morning just in time! He'll miss our steamy hot temps and return to normal Spring temps and even SNOW this weekend!!!
i'm twenty years old, i'm in the second year of college. i've come across a lot of people, learned plenty. there have been times when i felt like giving up, yet i kept at it. i screwed up my second & third semesters, in terms of academics. i screwed up big time. however, i don't think i screwed up otherwise. i've learned plenty — stuff they don't teach you in classes. stuff that other people tend to not give a fuck about. there's so much more to life, seriously. you can learn only so much from books. there's a world out there that we are yet to explore, yet we confine ourselves to the boundaries set by society.
what i realized is you can't ever let anything or anyone come in the way of your happiness. i might not have made the people around me as happy as i would have liked, but i did try my best to make myself happy.
i really wish the indian system tried out something new. whoever's reading this, stop right now. breathe. look around. let your surroundings sink in. let your brain process everything in its entirety. you're alive, right? remember when you were a child and you really wanted something and you didn't give up until you got it? that time, you must have had someone to depend on. what the indian system should teach us is that we are really on our own. we shouldn't be spoonfed. the entire engineering scene just disgusts me. it's like this gigantic machine churning out engineers 24*7.
whoever read this till the end, thank you. you should know that it means a lot to me. in case you do feel like reading more, do give my blog a read: theuvow.wordpress.com
