Ah, Blogger, we meet again!
It's been a bit of a hectic past week and school hasn't even started then. My mother arrived last week by plane to fix things up around the house we've newly acquired. It was also nice to have her around for a while, after we've been separated by time zones, since she and my dad both work abroad. Anyway, she left again to go back earlier today and the first day of classes for this semester began today, too (boo on both counts).
But as for the good news, remember that rather random post I made a while back? If you don't, well, I basically talked about how I wanted to have a bunny and now I do! Two of them (male and female), in fact and those who commented on that random post weren't kidding. They are definitely a lot of hard work and seriously poop like ten times their body weight in a day! What! (Although I may be exaggerating just a tiny bit). But awwww, these guys are seriously too cute to resist and I love them already! On to the pictures (this wasn't easy since they were both very lively and kept jumping around the place or dashing around madly):
This is the lady bunny I've named Cinnabon. She's a sweetie-pie, a bit shy but warms up to you ultimately. She likes sitting on my lap and me petting her little head. However, she seems to perpetually be hungry, despite me feeding them a good amount of pellets and greens. She's always found nomming on carpets, shoelaces, even my shorts. Here she is on a snack break from chewing on the welcome mat outside the main door of the house.
This is Pippin, named after Peregrin Took the hobbit from LOTR. This picture does him no justice at all, since he just looks really pissed off. Normally, he's actually very active and just loves to move all the time. He's small and cheeky and gets into trouble a lot, squeezing himself into small spaces and knocking down stuff.
Aaaand, a picture to show just how hard it is to get them to stay still for a cute picture. Here they are charging at me, trying to either eat the camera or jump over it.
All in all, they've both been great furry additions to the household. In other news, I've started lagging behind when it comes to NaNoWriMo, not reaching my quota of 2k words a day anymore. I try and make up for it, but it's hard since the days (and words you have to write) just keep piling up. I hope I can make it to the end.
Tomorrow (Saturday) is to be a hectic day for me since I've joined a run for a cause (EmpoweRun), which aims to raise money for a rehab ward and training center. This is important for me since I'm actually involved in the rehabilitation science field. I don't know exactly how I'll do tomorrow, though since I've done nearly zero training for this 5k marathon.
Also, after that, my fellow blocmates and I have decided to meet up and practice and make props for our annual college talent show on Thursday. So basically, tomorrow and the whole week to come is going to be really busy. You guys take care!
Over and out,
