It’s been a long and stressful couple of weeks with multiple University essays due in the same week. Sleep became rare and eating habits erratic. Today I submitted my final piece before a two week Easter break where I have another due the first day back before exam season begins!
Soometimes when study gets tough, I turn to the wonderful animals to remind me what I’m doing it all for. Today I share with you some of the most inspirational and beautiful animal stories I found to keep me motivated lately.
As for my upcoming exams, for the first time in history I actually want to fast forward to them as I have an incredible adventure planned two days after my final exam in May. I will be flying to America to meet some of the most inspirational women and vegans I know. Women who have become my friends through blogging or social networking, a reality I never knew could exist. But in a world where vegans are so few and far between, a world without barriers creates an amazing community and support system where vegans can never feel alone. I am blessed and incredibly excited for my virtual friends to become real life!
Some of the bloggers I will be staying with and meeting include the lovely Celeste from Honk If You’re Vegan, the gorgeous Somer of Vedged Out, the wonderful Annie of An Unrefined Vegan and the delightful Tami of Nutmeg Notebook and other great ladies from the online vegan community!
Now for some gorgeous animals;

A black swan feeds his fish friends every day to the amazement of passers by. He picks up the feed & takes it to the mouths of the waiting fish, “They became close friends after 3 years of playing together,” say staff at Safari Park. “Every time I come to feed the swan, all the fish follow him to the bank, with mouths open & he takes the food & puts some into each of the hungry mouths .When everyone has eaten enough, the swan goes back in the water & plays with his fish friends again.”
Back in 1986 a five year old boy fell into the Gorilla Enclosure at Jersey Zoo. Jambo the male Silverback Gorilla stood guard over him.
