Your Daily Dose of Cuteness!

I'm currently sitting in front of the TV, not doing my assignment. Woops. But, I can be forgiven.....because the gymnastics is on! Gymnastics is by far my favourite thing to watch at the Olympics. I'm always in sheer amazement over the things they do. And some of the guys aren't bad to look at ;)

Anyway, onto the real reason for this post. Anyone who knows me will know that I love cute animal videos. Cat videos are the ultimate. Last night, while watching a particularly boring olympic swimming race, my flatmate and I looked up some seriously cute youtube videos. I thought I'd share a few featuring some sneezing baby animals.

This one is a baby elephant that gets scared by its sneeze. Too cute! The next one is a baby bear who can't stop sneezing.
Finally, keeping with the sneezing theme...sneezing baby panda.

I hope you all get a few smiles from these videos.

Oh Uni, how I loathe thee.

That awkward moment when your friends ask you how your assignment is going. What assignment?!

It's only the second week back at Uni and I'm already behind. Typical me.
I figured I should write down when all my assignments and such are due, and now the months of August, September and October on my calendar look horrid. Thanks Uni. Sometimes I think that the lecturers all get together and have a grand old time making sure all the assignments are due within days of each other. In addition to all my work, it's officially 21st season - I have so many birthdays to attend. I really hope I can make it to all of them!

So, it looks like the next few months are going to be pretty busy for me. I do get to train a chicken though! We also get to name it. Hopefully I'll be allowed to take photos at the animal lab so everyone can see our new feathered friend. 

In better news, I watched the Dark Knight Rises last night. Overall, I thought it was pretty excellent. I still liked the Dark Knight better though.

I hope everyone's week has been super so far!

Until next time...

A Brief History...

Hi there everyone!
I've been trying to think of something to write for a couple of days now - I must admit, this whole 'first ever post' thing is a bit nerve wracking. It's people's first opinion of me! Eeek! After much pondering, I've decided that I'll start by sharing a few facts about myself - some are boring, some are a little strange - but I don't want to be insincere with this blog.
Well, here goes...

- My name is Rachel and I live and study in New Zealand. 
- I am 20 years old
- I study Psychology at University and I'm about to complete my final year. I still have no idea what I want to do after Uni. This is a little scary.
- I'm a major geek/nerd/whatever you're desired label. I LOVE movies (especially comic book ones), and I watch way too much TV. So much in fact that sometimes I forget that the characters are fictitious, and half expect to see them walking around in everyday life.
- Trashy reality TV is my guilty pleasure. Anything Jersey Shore related, including its British (and better in my opinion) equivalent. The obsession has not reached Real Housewives lows yet...
- I'm a master at procrastination. Seriously, if it was a sport, I'd be an Olympian.
- I will never ever put my arms or legs out of bed at night. 
- I'm terrified of Bees and Moths. 
- My favourite colour is yellow, but I rarely wear it. 
- If I could have one wish, I'd want to be able to sing. Right now, I could probably break some wine glasses with my attempts.
- I can't eat cheese cold. But I'll eat it melted. Strange, I know.
- I love cats. Especially giant fluffy ones.
- The only bone I've ever broken is my toe. Not as major as a leg or arm, but still painful!
- I'd love to travel the world someday. So far I've made it to Australia, Fiji and England. I hope to add America to this list very soon!

Well, that is all I can think of right now. I just want to finish my first ever post by saying: My life is in no way interesting, it's actually quite average. I'm using this as a way to document the little things in my life that make me smile. Hopefully, they can make you smile as well. 

p.s. I must say a MASSIVE thank you to my bestie Sinead, who designed everything you see on this blog. I have zero designing skills. I haven't worked out how to add links to this yet, so check out her blog called 'Sinead in the Sun'. 

p.p.s. apologies if there are any horrendous spelling mistakes. I wrote this really late at night.
