Heeeerrress Johnny! Or something like that.

Okay, I know I haven’t posted in a while, sorry, sorry, bad me. I’ve been a little busy with classes and other things, but I’ll try to post at least once a week from now on.

Anyways, I’ve been taking Russian language classes for about two weeks now. I’d tell you some words I know now, but I’ve been learning them in Cyrillic, and I don’t want to confuse myself by writing them in English letters.

I’ve also got a new pet. One day, I was working at the store, and I spotted a praying mantis just sitting on a grocery cart. So, I stuck him in a deli container and took him home. He’s quite fascinating to watch. He mostly clings to the ceiling of his aquarium and stays very still. But he’ll also explore the lid and try to find a place he can get out. He cleans his feet and his antennae with his jaws. Just nibbles away whatever is clinging to them, like say the guts of other bugs. It’s pretty cool to watch him eat, too. Mostly I’ve been feeding him crickets, the feeder kind you can get at pet shops. I’ve been trying to catch flies for him as well, but I haven’t got the hang of getting them into the aquarium.

Anyways, I’ll post again soon. See you later!
