I truly can't believe that the last time I posted on my blog was almost one year ago! For months I would go through phases of wanting to blog again and then not wanting to, it just seems like such a big task when I'm studying. I'm at university now and this probably isn't the best time to begin again but I have a real urge to get back into it now more than I ever have.
You hopefully have noticed that I have a new blog design. I have been wanting to buy a pre-made layout from a professional web designer ever since I started blogging, but my poor 15 year old self just couldn't afford it so I always made my own. But the ones I made myself always looked very DIY and I hated the way my blog looked. I am so happy with the design I have now, it is simple but looks so good. My design is from Pipdig. I made my blog header to use as a temporary measure until I know how I want it. I will probably get a one made for me from a designer much better than myself, but for the mean time it is a photo of my bunny Salt's fur and over is my fave font ever. How do you feel about the size of the header? I quite like it being so large but I'm not 100% sure.
My life over the past year has been busy! I finished my diploma in Animal Management with a Distinction in June, my major hard work really payed off! That literally is one of my biggest achievements. In high school I always just got C's and the occasional B's but to get top marks in that felt amazing! My college experience has lead me onto such amazing things! I now have two animal related jobs, one is just occasional work but I have gained so much experience with everything to do with the course and it feels so good to finally know what I want to do in life! As part of the course you had to have a work placement and I was so lucky to do mine at a wildlife sanctuary, Mondays for me where the best! I still keep in touch with the lovely owners and help them out when ever they need it or if they go away (this is my occasional job). I am going back next week to feed and look after their animals while they're away, so if I remember I will bring my camera and take some photos of the animals, I would love to do a blog post on them!
I am currently studying a BSc (Hons) Animal Management and Science degree which is really going to challenge me because I was never that good at science, I really don't know why I have took the science part but I will get through it! I am only in lessons three days a week and I don't have as much work to do as I did in my diploma, obviously it is going to be a lot harder work but I feel like I will be able to balance blogging and uni work well. (Fingers crossed)
I still have four crazily cute bunnies to look after, they also take up a good portion of my time. Roughly last June Poppy was diagnosed with E. Cuniculi, which is a parasite that lives in a lot of rabbits brains, but only affects about 6% of bunnies and unfortunately Pops is one of them. She has partially lost the use of her back legs and can't really get around very easily, you may be able to see in the photo above (she is the largest bunny) that her back end is very low to the ground. She is doing well at the moment and we're just taking one day at a time and monitoring her movement. At the end of August Salt my baby boy (white bunny) was really unwell and had a huge bladder stone! He had an operation to get it removed and is right as rain now but it was such a scary time! They honestly make me worry so much!
I hope you're as excited as I am to get blogging again! I feel so bad for neglecting this hobby as so many people said they used to love my blog, I do hope you still continue to like it in this restart.
