Another Year of Living Down

Well, I’m another year older today. I think I’m officially part of the late twenties crowd now? Does 27 count? It’s not terribly exciting to turn another year older once you hit your mid twenties. I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on this past year of my existence. It’s been a rough one for the books. I got a new job and then proceeded to lose said new job. I now have another new job though that seems to be a better fit for me, so maybe everything worked out of the best in that department.

As you’ve already heard, I started volunteering at a raptor center. I’ve been wanting to do that for a while, so it’s cool to finally have done it. I love working with the birds, and the people are great too. I still volunteer at a parrot rescue as well. Maybe this next year will see me doing something else with animals though. I’m not sure I can find the time to fit another activity into my schedule though.

My birthday itself is going well so far. My new coworkers wrote me a nice card, and decorate my desk with feathers. Aside from the fact that I will be finding feather pieces in my desk for the next several months, it looked great. I definitely wasn’t expecting them to have put in so much work.

I’m ending my day by watching We Bought a Zoo. It’s definitely in the running for one of my favorite movies. The characters in the movie are basically living my dream life. I always find it motivating, and I figured it would be a good way to begin another year of living.

I hope this finds all of you well!


Time Flies

It’s hard to believe that it’s already October. Summer is officially over, and it’s time for fall. I feel like I haven’t accomplished much recently. The little amount of time that I am home is usually spent catching up on sleep. I’m still working two jobs. The consistently busy schedule has not caused me any more recurring health problems which is always good.

I’m still busy volunteering. Things at the raptor center are going well. We’ve gotten a couple of new birds. I’m still learning new things every time I go. Last week, I learned how to cope the birds. Coping is the process of trimming the beak and talons. I was a little nervous, but I did not draw any blood which made me pretty happy. In the next couple of weeks, I will be leading a volunteer group in doing more cleanup at the new facility. It’s kind of exciting to get to participate in an organization as it’s building from the ground level.

That’s pretty much all that’s going on with me. Nothing else much has changed in my life.

Til next time!
