I could sit and watch jelly fish all day long. It’s soothing and serene and dance like. I love it. If you’re in Vancouver be sure to check out the Vancouver Aquarium and their extensive jelly fish exhibit on now.
I have a confession to make, I am a total fraud. Phew, that felt good to say out loud. I’ll be the first to raise my hand at a Fakers Anonymous meeting, “Hi, my name is Tiffany and I’m a fake”. You see, I may seem like I have my shit together but I totally don’t and if you’re … Continue reading
mom? how did horses get made? what do you mean, “get made“? like how did the first horse come to be on earth? oh I don’t know if I have an answer for that.
