CATCHING UP.

HELLO JULY, HELLO SUMMER.

these past few months have been such a whirlwind, i feel like it's only now that i've had time to breathe. i don't even know where to start.

last update was march? yeeesh, we have some catching up to do..

my boyfriend and i have been together for four years. [april 26, 2008!] his present to me was a new addition to the family; a precious baby turtle who i fell in love with at the pet store the day i saw him. a box turtle whom i have named pinkerton. [a weezer tribute, BUT OF COURSE.]



he is a sweet little thing who lounges in a tank at the foot of my bed and likes to stick his tongue out at me. he's grown a bit from these photos, he's got a more boxy shape now..

i'm 22 now. [may 10.]

and i lost the most important thing in my life.
this little boy right here:



my beautiful fluffy baby, zoysite. he was fifteen when he passed. a little king in his own right, i loved him more than anything i've ever loved. my favourite.

it's still hard. i still miss him and he's always on my mind. i know it was his time, but there's an emptiness that i can't really shake. although it has gotten easier with time, i just miss him. so. much.

this boy, i can't even explain. he was so, so loved. he had birthday parties, full cakes, presents for every holiday, he has photos in frames all over the house. who even develops photos anymore? we did for him.

it's been almost two months since i had to say goodbye to him. i didn't think i would cry when i wrote this but the waterworks are in full force.

sometimes i wonder why people even bother with pets. it is seriously the most heartbreaking thing in the world to lose a pet. but when i remember how much love i had in my heart for zoysite and all of the memories that we have of him, i can't regret it. he had a fulfilling life and he brought so much into my life.

since my spring classes ended, i've been working a lot. saving money for my SUMMER VACATION. hawaii part 2 happens TOMORROW and besides oahu [where we went last year], we're going to the big island too. i leave in less than fifteen hours, ahhhhh.. where does the time go?

i've been going to hot yoga to prepare myself for the heat. haha. i do NOT perspire gracefully, unfortunately.

to prepare for my trip, i've packed the following essentials. [photos coming!]

ten thousand rompers.
brown leather belts.
bangles.
bathing suit cover-ups.
various sandals/wedges.
colourful patterned bras.
panties galore.

i need to finish packing.. it's about 3 AM now. oops.
