It's Been a While

Summer seems to always be the same for me. I spend so much time watching TV since I don't get the chance to during school that I never end up going on the computer. Except to pay bills, which I'd rather not do but don't have a choice. This summer I decided to take pictures of my "adventures" since I rarely find time to blog about them.

The first exciting thing I did this summer was get a tattoo! I've always thought they were way to painful and that I never wanted one, but I changed my mind this past winter and decided it was time to get one. So I did.
The Gemini symbol
It didn't hurt nearly as bad as I was afraid it was going to! I think I may just get another one.

A little later my sister asked my parents to babysit my nephew, Connor. Of course I stayed home that night because that baby is so much fun to be around, which inevitably resulted in me changing a diaper. Connor decided he didn't want his diaper changed and tried to roll all over the place. His pants ended up not getting put back on, which resulted in this:
This is what happens when I babysit!
It's actually a really cute look for him. I think my sister got a good laugh out of it as well.

Have you ever heard of the Kutztown Folk Festival? It's like any other festival, except the theme is Pennsylvania Dutch. Let me tell you they have some of the best food I've ever eaten. For lunch I had a plate of ribbon chips. I haven't found those anywhere else! I also happened to walk by this
I forget what type of animal it was.
It was oddly mesmerizing. I couldn't look away. There was also a cuckoo clock tent where I bought my first cuckoo clock!

My favorite part of this summer was getting a new cat who we named Max. My mom found him on the side of the road near her work and decided she would give him a good home. About a million dollars later in vet fees he is a happy, loving kitten who just loves to cuddle.
He has an extra toe on his two front paws so they look huge

Max and Neko became best friends

The one outside hates his guts

Bad kitty!

It's only the end of July and I'm starting a new job and I'm all moved into my new apartment. Let's hope August goes as well as May, June, and July.
