Vlog Updates and 'The Cove'

Time to link you peeps to the many vlogs I managed to finally edit and complete!


On another note, I finally managed to view 'The Cove' last night. I was indeed prepared to be made aware of events that were going to be unsettling, but this documentary is truly powerful and needs to be watched by anyone who is enthusiastic towards cetaceans. Although, advisory towards those who are weak of stomachs. I was left emotionally drained, feeling mixtures of anger and sadness for the rest of the night and still lingering with me today. Feeling so f*cking helpless towards these mass cullings.....
It also makes me re-ponder about my trip to Sea World and despite how happy and well kept those animals seemed, where were they actually from? Could the dolphins actually be from this same marketing as Taiji?

Getting My Rump Into Planning Gear

Previously on LOAF:

"I have some plans on the horizon which I am now researching into, I'll fill ya'll in when I get it all sorted out and get some definite plans in motion."

What are these plans? They are to Teach In Japan. Since my trip in 2008, I fell head over heals for this country, so recently, I decided to go ahead and make that change! Numerous months of thinking and research has been going down and it wasn't until after a tarot reading from my dear sibling, that was oddly accurate and gave me that final boost to go ahead and plan the dream. Theres something almost Disney about the way I'm feeling about this whole new prospect ^___^

I have now started my TEFL course (Which is alot of fun and due to the part-time aspect, great for my kind of crazy schedule), which will advance my chances in applying, this along with some sturdy CV and cover letter action should hopefully guide me to the holy grounds for next year *FINGERS CROSSED*

I've even planned a trip in Sept, with my partner in crime to re-introduce myself to the Japanese way of life and to get us both prepared.

Staring at the numerous Japan/Tokyo travel books I have surrounding my desk right now, I'm feeling a sense of direction and excitement (I may implode from excitement of returning!), also the joy of eating information is just bliss.
