Patience is not a virtue for a guinea pig.

Today, I recorded the lady from the animal shelter and she was talking about guinea pigs. I literally had to bite my lip to keep from laughing at the stuff she said about them. Apparently Henry is a normal guinea pig because he is exactly all the things she was describing.

He is just so... Funny. If you don't feed him RIGHT when he wants you to, he will put his feet on his cage and "wheet wheet wheet" at you. Or he'll pull his water bottle off the cage and throw it on the ground. Or both lol.

Ohh man. Everyday is an adventure at my house. Haha

There's something about summer...

Do you know what I mean? I always feel like I can conquer the world in the summer... And this summer, I plan to do it for real. Maybe not the whole world, but my world anyway. I made a list of things to do this summer (just to be clear, I am considering summer to end on Labor Day weekend). I've already done two of the things, so I'm behind... Considering the list is 35 items long.

So... Things left that I haven't done...
--Go to a concert
--Learn to drive my brother's car
--Go hiking
--Go camping
--Lose 5 pounds
--Take a picture that screams "SUMMER"
--Fly a kite
--Catch fireflies in a jar
--Watch the sun rise
--Find the perfect lemonade
--Go shopping with Grandma
--Write in my journal once a week
--Ride a tractor
--Go skinnydipping
--Finish reading "Gone With The Wind" (right now I'm on page 260 of 1024)
--Watch the sun set
--Go swimming
--Go horseback riding
--Make a bouquet of wildflowers
--Go fishing
--Ride a rollercoaster
--Dance in the rain
--Roast marshmallows over a fire
--Talk to someone I don't know
--Try American Honey
--Go trapshooting
--Swing in the park
--Fall in love
--Dance all night
--Play beer pong
--Feel beautiful
--Carpe Diem
--Love life. Be brave.

That's it. I've done some of it before, but I wanna do it again. And what better time than summer?

Also, there's something about summer that makes me want to draw hearts all over everything ♥
