Zoo Part Two

Bestie C has been itching to visit the zoo since last year, but we didn't have the opportunity to go then. Before the summer session started she planned our itinerary and off we went. This was the very first time that I went to the Bronx Zoo by public transport. (In the past, I went with my parents by car.) Boy was the ride long. But it didn't seem too bad when the four of us chatted away.

For those who are interested, I would recommend going on Wednesdays because it is their suggested donation visiting day. The downside is there are probably going to be many more groups of kids then too. But it isn't all too bad. There's more than enough for everyone to enjoy!

One of my favorite shots of the day. Just because it was an awkward turtle! (Or is this a tortoise?)
Poor thing was stuck until a zoo keeper went in and turned it right-side up!

So relaxing ^o^

The four of us waited by the peacocks for the longest time...just to watch them fan their tails. I didn't get to see this last year so the wait was well worth it. This was actually the highlight of my day! There were so many peacocks that were opening their tails for the peafowls, but none of them were successful at courting their mate (at least not while we were there).

Have you been in touch with nature lately?
I know the zoo can't really qualify as being nature, but compared to the 'concrete jungle' it is close enough for me right now :P

My nails are finally strong enough for polish! I felt like I haven't done my nails for yearrrss (it's probably only been half a year lol). I had such a hard time deciding what color to choose. So I ended up using 5 colors instead to make the decision easier. Who ever said we can only use one polish color at a time? :P Would you do the same or was I just a little bit too excited?


This bracelet is different from others that I made. Those had a pulling closure whereas this time around I added a toggle clasp. I think I much prefer this because I can easily put the bracelet on with one hand. But it also looks a lot less like a bracelet for a child, right? Or maybe that's just me...

I am very surprised at myself for still being interested in making bracelets after taking a semester long break. In fact, I was constantly itching to visit the bead store even when I was very preoccupied with school work. Maybe this means something? Who knows, but I do know that it has become the hobby that I'm most interested in recently. With my personality, I am probably going to be a little obsessed with this hobby for a while. (Hopefully it isn't one of my "three-minute hotness" interests.) However, since I make them only for myself right now, it is becoming a rather expensive hobby to continue with. I think I need either find a job or to start selling what I make. What do you think?
