It's Like You're Always Stuck in Second Gear

SPRING.
Maya and I bought drinking coconuts on a whim and then had to Youtube "how to open a drinking coconut". This was our celebratory photo.
I say spring, but it really is more or less summer given that spring in Jo'burg basically lasts for September and then we jump straight ahead to summer and stay there until March. But the blossoms are blossoming and the birds are building nests and the jacarandas are only just starting to bloom, so I suppose we can still call it spring for a little longer.

And now I'm going to talk about being sad for a bit. At the end (spoiler alert) I'll tell you that I'm doing better now, so don't panic and don't be sad. Ready? Ready.

Some Happy Things

20:17 Posted by Ali , 4 comments
Sometimes I find things that briefly make me feel like I'll never be sad again. This isn't true, as I'll explain in another more depressing post, but never mind that. Let's look at the happy things.

This sloth has big eyes and would like to hug you.
This chicken is attempting to hide from its past beneath this bad wig.
I bought MAGENTA SHORTS.
This hedgehog is giving this tiny bunny the side-eye. (Source)
This man loves his giant onion more than ANYTHING.
And this baby sloth loves its giraffe just as much.
And today I learned that young sloths sometimes mistake their limbs for tree branches, grab onto them and fall out of trees.

You're welcome.
