Had a pretty cool expereince yesterday while visiting teaching. What's visiting teaching, you ask? It's a Latter Day Saint thing where female members visit other female members to support each other.

Anyway, we were visiting this girl, having good discussions about all sort of things, spiritual and otherwise, when her brother passes by after waking up from a nap. With a snake around his neck. I didn't give it much thought other than "Cool. A snake." My sister... almost freaked out. She pointed out the snake, and suddenly the conversation took a rather different turn. Not only did he give us lots of interesting facts about snakes and caring for them as pets, he also let me hold both the snake around his neck, but another, smaller specimen that he had. I had held a snake before(a very large one that took several people to hold, but a snake nonetheless), but this was the first time I had volunteered to hold one, let alone two. My sister... well, she pet them, but was very much against holding them. She is very much like Indiana Jones in that regard.

Why do I bring this up? Becuase I was actually rather suprised by myself when I held those snakes. It had been years since I had even seen a snake, let alone held one. I have to say, I was quite proud of myself, because if I were 12, I would have been reacting to the snakes in a manner similar to my sister. The very large snake I held all those years ago helped me get over my natural squeamishness around them, but I had honestly expected never to hold another serpent in my life.

Let me tell ya though, my mom nearly freaked out when she found out when we got home. Having grown up in Kentucky, where there are more poisonous snake species than out west, I totally understand. Accidentally mixing up the words "cobra" and "python" didn't help either.

So now you know that I actually kinda like snakes. Never thought I would type that phrase, but there it is.

Today I turn 22. And I've yet to have a date. I'd better hop to it. Also, I have a cell phone now. Not a birthday present, that is seeing The Lion King with my sister.

Been walking with a friend in the mornings for the past 2 weeks. Exercise is so much more enjoyable when you have someone to talk to.

So [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin is doing this 30 day Kingdom Hearts meme, and I thought I could give it a shot as well.

Kingdom Hearts 30 Day Meme
Day 1: Favorite Character

Wow. I thought picking one would be easy, but it is not. There are so many good characters that pretty much all the good guys are my favorites and I love to hate all the villians. I think the character I like the most right now is Aqua. I see in her a lot of what I want to be: loyal, courageous, caring, and hopeful. The fact that she kicks butt doesn't hurt either. I have yet to play her story in BBS, but I have spoiled myself for the ending, so I also really feel for her current situation.

So, I've scheduled my road test for Thursday. At 8:15 AM. It was either that or 7:45 AM. You know your mom loves you when she's willing to accompany you down to the DLD at that early of an hour, especially with the way she usually feels.

So yesterday around noon, my visiting teacher called me and invited me to have ice cream with her visiting teachers. And it was so much fun! We talked about all sorts of stuff, like what we want in a man and what our hobbies were. And it wasn't just any ice cream, either. It was fried ice cream so big we only ordered two so we could split them in half. And it was yummy. If you are wondering, visiting teachers are basically fellow female church members who visit you with a message and help keep you on the right track spiritually. Yeah, it's a Mormon thing. And I love my visiting teachers, as well as being one myself.

I don't think my life has been this enjoyable since I was a little girl. And it's only going to get better from here!
