Ornithology class outing to Mound View Park

On occasion, I have the opportunity to go on bird outings with my Ornithology class. We are required to write and submit three field journal entries as part of the course, whether it be from our own observations or during a class outing. Since this would typically be something I’d post on this blog, I figured I’d share this with you guys verbatim. There were some requirements to the assignment, one of them being to give the proper common and scientific names of any birds we mention. Other than that, this is a nice and causal assignment that I thoroughly enjoyed writing.

Hope you all enjoy and possibly learn a little something while reading this! Continue reading

March 17, 2017 (RANT)

This week…this week has been a mess and I’m glad it’s done and over with now. It goes without saying I never had much of a chance to really enjoy my Spring Break to relax and catch up on schoolwork. I did hang out with…one of my friends for not even a full day, and that’s about all the fun I had this week.

Why? Because I had to help my mom move all her shit from her apartment into a storage locker or my grandma’s trailer. A lot of this stuff she’s never sorted through at all or barely, and so much of my family has told her to go through it. We’ve also moved several times in the past, so it’s not like she didn’t have an opportunity to really get rid of shit she doesn’t need. Sometimes, I fear she’s a bit of a hoarder and is afraid to let things go. It’s sad and it sucks, but stuff piles up fast and it gets to point where you need to go through it before it gets worse and not add to the pile. It’s not bad right now, but it could be worse…a lot worse.

Feb. 10, 2017

Hey guys, I’ve been gone a while, haven’t I? That shouldn’t be new, honestly; I’ve been quite busy and have had a lot on my mind for the past month or so.

One culprit would definitely have to be college. Yep, finally started that up again a couple weeks ago. Already I feel busy with assignments, many of which are long-term, research projects, which would be understandable at this point in my college career. I currently have two research projects I need to think of a topic/get on the ball with doing research ASAP, plus I have a lot of reading to do for two other classes. Not to mention, there’s exams coming up soon and I need to start getting prepared for those. It’s just been so hard getting back into that mindset after being gone for the summer, fall, and beginning of winter. Continue reading

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

I haven’t had much time to share any life updates on this blog between work and being busy almost every weekend this summer. I’ve also been focusing more on writing and trying to write as often as I can; I would like to try and post more often on my story and poetry blogs and elsewhere. That’s not to say I’ll lower the quality of my writing, however; I always strive to improve in my craft with each piece I write.

Along with that, there hasn’t been much else happening in my life right now. I’m currently unable to go back to Platteville in the Fall, for multiple reasons, but I will be going back in the Spring. I only have one semester left until I graduate; after that, who knows what will happen next. For the time being, I’ll still be working at Milton Propane through the Fall and possibly early Winter.

My boyfriend and I have been together for five months now as of Thursday. We’ve had our ups and downs, sure, but I think it’s safe to say our relationship is still going steady. We’re still trying to figure things out, both as individuals and as a couple; there are still a few kinks (not those kind!) we’re working out too, but all of that will come in time and effort. Regardless, we both still love each other very much and would like to live together some day.

I will also being going to a couple furry conventions in the near future: Furry Migration in Minneapolis, MN, and Midwest FurFest in Rosemont, IL. Of course, I will going with my boyfriend, but a couple of our other friends will be joining us as well; I know both of them will be a blast!

And that’s about it. I wanted to give you guys a quick update with what I’ve been up to and how I’ve been lately.

Two Months!

I can’t believe it’s been two months since me and my boyfriend, Wolfletech, have been together! I’m still thankful to have him in my life, and I hope we can keep this going onto three months!

Anyway, below is all what we did for our two-month anniversary. Continue reading

April 18, 2016

I’ve been meaning to give you guys a life update of sorts, considering the last one was when me and my boyfriend went on our second date. Not a whole lot has been happening on that front, but a lot of other stuff’s happened since then. Continue reading

I’m not one for making New Year’s Resolutions…

…but I think I’ve just made one. See, to me, I normally don’t understand the idea of New Year’s Resolutions. I mean, yes it’s good to set some kind of goal to better yourself; however, 1) you need to STICK to it in order to reach that goal and 2) you don’t need a certain time of the year to dictate WHEN you should begin to better yourself (New Year’s, Lent, the few months before Summer, etc). Usually these resolutions physical goal to get more fit or lose weight, or goals to quit an addiction. In a way, mine’s a combination of the two. (And yes, I am aware I’m about two weeks late on this resolution thing, but I didn’t want to set anything unless I felt the need to; I do now.) Continue reading

Hey everyone, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been quite busy lately with college and whatnot, especially these past few weekends. One weekend I went home to help my mom pack for our move, the two weekends after was Ponyville Ciderfest, then Thanksgiving Break weekend. Just now I finally have a weekend where I’m not busy. Granted I do have one graduation party tomorrow night, but that’s all really.
