Man, Saturday you are a sight for sore eyes.
I AM SWAMPED. This past week has been filled with so many tests/projects/presentations/meetings that I’m goin bonkers. Next week looks to be the same….
But in the midst of the chaos, my invert zoology lab went on an EPIC day long field trip on Thursday out on a boat to collect specimens! We left to drive out to the port at 6:45am and witnessed a BEAUTIFUL sunrise. After boarding the boat at 7:45, we set out for adventure (and I was doped on dramamine haha) We saw dolphins, pelicans, rainbows and managed to catch some cool stuff in the troll nets like squid, brittle sea stars, crabs, shrimp, look down fish, and even AN OCTOPUS! They hadn’t caught one in over 2 years and they said it was super rare. My professor even told us that in the 44 years he’s been teaching, he’d only seen THREE (including ours) caught! I touched him and he felt squishy like a brain heehee
Being out on the boat, immersed in my passion of marine biology, made me feel SO happy. And now I totally want to start looking for internships for the summer or Christmas break
Even though there’s been a lot of stress goin on, I haven’t let it deter me from my plan and I feel really proud of myself for that. I don’t think I give myself enough credit sometimes for simple victories like that. The old me would’ve probably been freaking out hardcore, but this new, dedicated Alexandra won’t let those stinkin thinkin thoughts creep in. NEVER!
Anyway, I know y’all wanna know who won the giveaway, so I won’t torture you any longer haha
And the winner is….
Email me (girlbob212[at]gmail[dot]com) your shipping info and I’ll get your loot sent out asap on Monday!
Thanks again everyone for entering, I wish I could send all of you something! <3
Well, off to go run errands, do a crap ton of homework, and hopefully squeeze in some fun with Lexi!
See y’all on Monday for my second progress post!
Do you get sea sick? (that’s my irony–wants to be a marine biologist, but has a pansy stomach on the water haha)
How do you conquer stressful weeks?
