One time, while we were hitchhiking along the oregon coast. A guy that picked us up took us to a spot where he always sees elk grazing on his way home from work. There was about 15 of them just hanging about. It was beautiful. The he dropped us off on a lovely little path that lead to the perfect place to hang our hammocks for the night.

Saving Peru’s sea turtles and marine birds: 
Conservationists and fishermen partner to tackle bycatch
by Jeremy Hance
Marine conservationists often view fisheries as an enemy of sorts, vacuuming up fish with little thought to the long-term consequences and using equipment that also ends up killing other species, i.e. bycatch like sea turtles and marine birds. However, Joanna Alfaro Shigueto, the President of the Peruvian NGO ProDelphinus and winner of a 2012 Whitley Award, has chosen a different tact. Off the coast of Peru, she works closely with artisanal fishermen to lessen their bycatch and improve their lives through education.  “Many of the fishermen that we work with are the first to say that fish stocks in the Peruvian ocean have decreased,” she told mongabay.com. “Regardless, fishermen are uninformed of the degree of vulnerability each species has or how their actions affect the oceans when we consider how many artisanal fishermen work along the Peruvian coast.

Feeling happy, feeling nervous, feeling grateful, feeling calm, feeling excited.
I got a job today. It’s been a while since I’ve had a paying job. I am super excited, but I think I might have to drop a school course to have enough time for everything. I have to move to guelph soon. But things are looking great! Spent some time at rockwood with Miranda, which was lovely. What a great day! This semester has been so good, so many weekend trips and little adventures. I’m definitely making the most out of fall! 20 is feeling great!

I can’t help but feel like I’m being ignored… I can’t help but feel like people are making plans without me, and no one even cares to mention them. I can’t stand the way some people can be so passive aggressive. Am I the one who is passive aggressive? It just makes me really sad to feel like the whole experience ended with so many mixed emotions left unresolved.
News: Interview on thursday! It’s good news once I actually get the job… you’d think I would’ve learned something from past job interviews. We’ll see how this one goes I guess.
