Intrinsic Wanderlust

This makes me so happy!

Why isn’t everyone this outraged about factory farms?

You’ll skip buying a Sea World ticket, but won’t give up that cheeseburger without a fight.

Uh, how do you know whether people are vegetarian/vegan and also avoid buying tickets?

there’s always something to pick at, right? 

you can research sea world yourself or pay attention to the blogs that post these things to perhaps understand the reaction. but don’t immediately think we disregard what goes on in factory farms or any other form of animal abuse. 

it’s like sharing awareness of starving children in Africa, then saying “What about slavery that continues around the world? Are you just ignoring that?”

Not every post can talk about every fucking thing at once. How on earth do you spread information that way? -_-

also, going back to dolphins, you appear to not know the mental structure and capability of cetaceans, which compares closely to that of a humans. that’s mainly why people are so outraged. 

Brain structures do not have to be similar to be equally deserving of basic rights.

All animals feel pain, fear and isolation.

That’s reason enough to question unnecessary cruelty inflicted on others.

Just had a beer for the first time in two months.

Kinda gross. Kinda good.

Mortuary school doesn’t have to end with a degree on the wall.

So It's Starting


After lots of hemming and hawing, reading and research, talking myself out of and into it again, I FINALLY applied to the Funeral Science program at one of the two schools in my state. I am terrified.

I am a 36-year-old woman who already has a degree in Criminal Justice, a Master’s level…

The majority of folks in my mortuary school were on their 2nd or 3rd careers. Most of them were older than you with children as old as me (I was a young 21 at the time).

I am currently back in school myself. This time I’m nearly a decade older and wiser. Education, in my opinion, gets better with age.

Follow your heart. Have no regrets.
