To give an update, my summer is FILLED with outdoor activity! I could not possibly spend more time out there! I've got my hiking shoes on at least 6 days of the week. My summer job is 4 days a week and I collect data for a University research lab, another 1 or 2 days of the week are devoted to data collection for my thesis! This means I'm hiking around the woods tracking 8 spotted turtles, who were once all traveling between ponds but now have slowed down for the summer and are mostly just chilling under vegetation. Besides that I'm doing some vegetation transects and water pH measurements. I've camped several times, and hiked here and there and I will be camping again next weekend and learning *finally!!!* how to wake board!
Art got put on the back burner but luckily it is easy for me to draw turtles so they will be shot out randomly, and when I get around to it I'll share a few spotted turtle pictures that I had the privilege of taking since I see my extended family of them on a weekly basis
I've actually reverted back to being wild... or feral? lol Wild.
