Work started at 7:45, which meant leaving at 6:45. If anything is teaching my how to be a teacher right now, it’s my job. I wake up early. I talk to people. I teach. I hold my tongue when people don’t use their brains. I think it’s great preparation! Nothing too exciting happened at work today. I went to Birds like four times, but I never got pooped on. Plus, I saw the Black Crake chick, which was really exciting. Right now, he looks like a black cotton ball on a couple of sticks. The coloring on his beak and legs haven’t come in yet, so he’s still pretty difficult to find if you aren’t looking for him. I spent a little time at Outpost and Valley with the Gorillas, but there wasn’t anything too exciting going on. It was Spike’s birthday, though! I’m glad I got to see him. He’s such a stud. I always say he looks like he belongs on the cover of a magazine. Anyway, I saw my trainer on the trail as well as one of my favorite coordinators, Dennis. For those of you who know my Grandad, you know how great he is. He pesters and picks on me all the time, but he’s awesome a. Dennis reminds me of Grandad. He picked on me all day yesterday when I was Jean, and pretty much any other day on the trail too. The trail went 101 for a little while before we closed. We ended up opening with 25 minutes to go on the trail. After work, I came home, ate dinner, and talked to mom for about an hour on the phone. Now I’m getting ready to go to bed. I don’t have to be at work until 12:45 tomorrow, so I’m sleeping in! That’s all for today! Thanks for reading!
