So I'm in Omaha....

So I'm about 3 weeks into my internship. It's been flying by! Everyday I do something new like feeding the turtles on my own to just being told to prep the shark food and not needing to be told how to do it :) Yesterday, I got to do a necropsy!!!! It was on a slimmy, silver dollar fish from the Amazon. It was gross but really cool at the same time :) Today I got the morning duties to myself and the other intern. Feeding Teddy, the turtle, is so much fun. Teddy is so sweet. I'm trying to think of enrichment for the squirrel monkeys. I'm still looking for a paying job.... I need to find one soon. Well until next time....

It's been a week..

Sorry it's been so long. What a week! Wednesday I moved to Omaha in a snowstorm that was the cause of many problems. Today was the first day that I got to park in the driveway of the house. I'm living in the intern house which is very interesting lol There are many things let here from interns past, including a sombrero that has been here for at least 5 years hahaha It's an old house, blue, and I have room #3. It's pink! Right up my alley :) The girls here are wonderful! Alicia and I have been getting to know each other yay! The zoo is huge. wow. I can't wait for it to get warm enough for me to walk around the entire thing!! I have started off in Aquarium Fish and Inverts. The first couple of days were okay. But today was fun. I got to feed the spider monkeys, moon jellies, and the fish of the huge shark reef. I was excited!! I got to take all of the water data for the tanks by myself proudly ;) Also got to give the monkeys raisins. They're cute! Last weekend, Dean and I went to Tana's wedding. She made the most beautiful bride!!!!!!!! Ash and I handed out programs. The reception was a blast. She is currently in Mexico chillin'. Jealous :) Well that's about it for that week. Otherwise, ttys. Miss you guys!!

Tomorrow's the Day

Hi again :)
So my things are packed, how weird! We are leaving about 4pm tomorrow. I'm excited to see my aunt and uncle, and I'm very happy that my parents are going with me to get me moved in. I almost feel like a freshman again haha I've gotten to see all of my nieces while I've been home, so I am very thankful! <3 I love those lil girls!!!!!!! I'll be in Omaha for three days and then I'll be making a stop at home before going to Tana's WEDDING!!!! It'll be a good time :) I'm very happy for her and Shane! Well that's about all I've got for today....
p.s. Brenna, I hope you are having the time of your life in the Bahamas!!
