I have an affinity for animals-especially wild ones. There’s something that is just the right kind of exhilarating about getting next to an animal that you’re not supposed to be close to. At one point, I thought I’d be a veterinarian or a zookeeper, but when I realized that I’d have to deal with instances of animal cruelty and potentially put animals to sleep (and upon discovery of my severe allergies to cats and my lack of scientific aptitude), those dreams were put away.
But I still take any opportunity I can to get close to wildlife.
Next up, as soon as I can swing it, is Audubon Zoo’s Backstage Penguin Pass.
(On day 4 of Zero to Hero, the task was to find some new blogs by browsing around topics. I chose graduate school, children’s books, sculpture, New Orleans, and pop culture. Weird little mix, I know, but each topic yielded fun and promising results. )
