Turtle with no name....

I'm officially the proud owner of a TURTLE. One problem... I don't know what his name should be.. I was thinking of just the no named turtle like the cat with no name on Breakfast at Tiffany's. But I feel like since my turtle and I do belong together he should have a name. So. Any suggestions?

First Summer adventure Fail or Success?

Alright so the first thing that I wanted to do this summer was buy the one thing I always wanted.... a TURTLE! So I went to a bunch of Petcos and Pet Smarts in the area and all of them were over $100. How outrageous!! Then my dad suggested to look on ksl. Genius. And now I think I found one for only $40 with a tank and food. How great right? I'm really excited. Hopefully it'll work out. I'm going to go look at it tomorrow and if I like it I'm buying it. I'm stoked. For a Turtle. As one great man said, Enjoy the Little Things!
This is a picture the guy sent me of the turtle I'm buying!

So considering buying a turtle ^^ was tapped on the outside of my jar and I didn't want to start my summer until I found one I decided I was close enough so today I drew my first real thing out of my jar.
It said, "Write a note of kindness to Mychelle." For those of you who don't know Mychelle is my 17 year old step-sister. The two of us became friends before we became sisters. But over the years we have had a lot of roller coaster-ing um... How do I word this... Emotions, Trials, Arguments, and lots of other things. I guess like normal sisters we don't always get along but I feel like it's been harder to connect to Mychelle considering our situation and our difference in personality. I love her though!!
So mission accomplished! I finally told her how much she has helped me mainly my Junior and Senior year of high school while she was a Freshman and Sophomore. She helped with my studies A LOT!! She's an absolute genius. She tutored me in multiple subjects and helped me pass my classes. I'll tell you a little secret I'm AWFUL at reading. Well Mychelle is the fastest reader I know. So whenever I had to read a book for school she would let me read out loud to her. She helped me understand the readings as well because at times I had to reread to completely understand what I had just read and she was very patient with me and explained it to me. Because of her I am now able to read at a faster pace then before and am able to understand what I read the first time (for the most part). Seriously though... She's great! If any of you know her let her know how great she is. I don't think she hears it enough.

Cinco de Mayo!

As a result of this holiday, Cinco de Mayo, I have worn my old high school spanish club shirt and have been carrying around my maraca to show my celebration! Happy Cinco de Mayo! I wish I could say I was going to be eating some Mexican specialty tonight but... I'm going to head to Texas Roadhouse with some friends instead. And hopefully be apart of the Booty Call the Musical production. Enjoy yourself and don't take in too much salsa this fine day.
Also it's bright and sunny outside!! :D

I've got my llama and maraca! Now let's have a Fiesta!
