So I’m unleashing my inner nerd today. I am super excited because today at work we caught a lamprey! What is a lamprey you may ask?!?!
Well you could say a lamprey is like the vampire of the sea.Lampreys will latch on to the other fish and suck their blood (like a vampire)!
YES, they are the creepy eel looking things attached to the fish. They are part of the jawless fish order (thanks wikipedia). Here is what the inside of their mouth looks like!
And this is the inside of a lampreys mouth
We caught a baby one today. Luckily, it was not a fully matured lamprey so it did not have that lovely set of teeth. I thought it was pretty cool and I wanted to share that lovely tid-bit about my day.
My sister is terrified of these things and anything that reminds her of a tape worm. I will be showing her pictures of it later!
First off I would like to start this post by saying I am a very mellow and peaceful person. I don’t like fights and have never ever been in a physical confrontation. With this said there are a few select people that I would gladly serve a five finger sandwich straight to the kisser if I had the opportunity. It is very rare that I don’t like a person. I can count on one hand the people I dislike to that extreme. If you made the list then CONGRATULATIONS, you’ve done something terrible enough to make me dislike you that much. That is an achievement.
I do my best to keep these people that provoke these negative feelings out of my life but sometimes they find a way of sneaking back in…..cough cough stupid social media. Long story short, a person that made my list of people I really want nothing to do with “popped up ” today. See their presence, and media they were displaying on an unnamed social media app, put me in a bad mood. Instead of posting “subtweets” or obnoxious statuses I decided to make a blanket rant on here. I would never actually name these people anyways because that’s wrong. It just feels nice to let it out really. Now that I’ve done that I’ll try my best to just let it go and get back to positive thoughts.
ps: I do not own any of these images. All found on google. (I don’t like you & bye)
So I have failed thus far at updating this. I do in fact have a lot to write. I just haven’t had the time. Currently I have the attention span of an ant and just took some sinex (NYQUILL MADE SINUS MEDS YAYYYY) so I will be passing out in the near future……not in the ice cream I’m expecting from my sister.
BUT…….updates will come. It has been an interesting few weeks.
So first I guess I should start off by introducing myself. Hi I’m Meghan. I’m a 21 year old college student trying to figure out and make sense of this little thing we call life. In the past few years a lot has happend and I’ve gone through a lot of things (but who doesn’t have ups and downs). Through all of this I’ve learned I need to open up some more. So this blog of sorts will serve as a way to talk about my life (I guess)? We will see how this all works out. I don’t know if anyone is going to actually read this (or care), but I made this as a way to share whats going on in my life (and head). My goals are to use this instead of other forms of social media to express how I feel and talk about things in my life.
Anyways, I’d like to consider myself the roaming college student. I don’t really stay put in one place for a long period of time. I have stayed at the same college for 3 going on 4 years now, but it’s more I’m always moving around. I can’t stay put for long. I haven’t quite found my niche yet, that one true place I belong. I’m working on that. I’m trying to figure out where I belong in this world and what my purpose is. I’ve found a few things in life I’d like to say I’m passionate about, most of these things being in the science field. More specifically marine science and genetics. YUP I’M A NERD. I’ve been blessed with an internship this summer that will hopefully open some doors for me in the future. For the sake of my job and privacy reasons I will do my best to not directly say who I’m working for. Let’s just say hopefully this internship will give my the resume boost I need to be successful and land a good job when I graduate next year. Oh! My internship is working with fish aka doing something I love.
I like to look at life as one big adventure. I believe this summer will prove to be an adventure indeed. There is change on the horizon. As scary as it is, and as much as I don’t want to have to face some of this change, I guess it’s time. It is time to put on my big girl pants and do this. So come join me though this crazy adventure I like to call my life.
