As some of you may know from my previous post (here), I have been volunteering at a non profit monkey sanctuary in Clewiston, Florida called The Talkin’ Monkeys Project.
As part of graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University, we are required to perform a certain amount of community service hours as well as create a project to showcase what services we have been performing for these places. So without further waiting, here is the video my group created for our final project. Hope you enjoy!
A part of graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University is volunteering for 100hours at a non profit organization. As a transfer student I am only required 40, but today I found the place I will be acquiring all 40 hours, plus some!
There is this amazing project called The Talkin’ Monkeys, and they are literally doing such a awesome things for these animals.
A few of the primates here were saved from horrible, abusive homes, and now live in an amazing sanctuary where they are well looked after 24/7.
Today was only orientation so we did not do too much interactive activities, but I am looking forward to spending many hours here.
I will be posting more about my time at Talkin’ Monkeys, and I will show you guys the bond I create with these amazing, intelligent animals.
For our last full day in DC we made a goal to get some Georgetown Cupcakes. Famously known from TLCs “DC Cupcakes.”
Georgetown was such a cute little town!
You can see the line around the side of Georgetown Cupcakes. According to their website, their line always goes around the block.
We timed how long it took to get through the line and it was 30minutes!
But the cupcakes were yummy 😀 Red Velvet•Blueberry Cheesecake•Salted Caramel•Strawberry
This weekend I travelled up to Washington, DC with my boyfriend and his family, for the first time! We went to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Washington Monument and the White House.
Smithsonian American Art Museum
The design of the building itself, inside and out, was what seemed most spectacular to me.
The White House
As we were walking towards the White House we saw the presidential helicopters fly in to pick up Mr.Obama. It was so neat!
If you follow me on Facebook then you would have seen my new custom painted longboard surfboard!
My father has been surfing for a very long time and I have tried it once or twice before but this summer I really wanted to get into it and it was soooo fun!
After several times of surfing, my father thought it would be best for me to get my own board shaped to best suit myself. Therefore, Peli surfboard out of Cocoa Beach, Fl shaped and did the blue base coat for my board.
The octopus was an idea of mine that came from lots of research on surfboard designs. There was one image of a giant octopus spread out over the entire board, and I loved it!
So I asked my mother, of MADart, to design this amazing octopus. And the final piece is absolutely amazing!
I will try to get some photos of me actually surfing on this board! I have only been able to take this particular board out once, but the board is amazing! Peli did a great job and the artwork is stunning!
My mother used acrylics to paint the octopus, and then the surfboard makers applied several top coats to set everything in.
Today I moved into my new apartment on campus at FGCU. It was pretty much an all day event, but I am finally settled in and everything is looking great! Not to mention our apartment sits right by a beautiful lake, for an on campus apartment I am very pleased. I am a transfer student (junior) so this Monday will be my first day as the new girl on campus. Let’s see how It goes!
I live with two other girls, one who I share a room with and the other is a Resident Assistant. We also have a living area, full kitchen, and two bathrooms.
