I Have Too Many Thoughts

Today I decided to type up some of the random thoughts that pop into my head throughout the day and some of the things I think about on a daily basis when something happens. I always have a lot on my mind, but I don’t always express it. I just have too many thoughts and I don’t feel like I need to bother anyone with all my thoughts or questions on different things.

So anyway, here are 20 of some of the random thoughts I have:

  •  When I make my hedgehog look in the mirror does he know it’s himself or does he think it’s another hedgehog? I definitely underestimate him but I still don’t know just how smart he is. But swear, one time when I was super drunk he looked at me like he knew all my secrets.
  • Why do I own so many clothes when I only wear about 50% of them? And why do I still keep the things I don’t normally wear, as if I’m gonna magically start wearing them again?
  • It’s so annoying when people think they’re right about fucking everything and can’t admit they’re ever wrong. So they just argue about it and call you names because they don’t want to back down and just admit that they were wrong. Like stop being a stubborn little child and grow the fuck up.
  • I really suck at non physical communication with friends and people. I just don’t like texting or talking on the phone or messaging or anything like that. If it’s not an in person conversation, I basically have almost no desire to talk to you. I’ll receive a message, look at it, form a response in my head, and then not reply back. I mean, not always of course. I do reply sometimes but only if the other person is interesting and can hold an interesting conversation for a bit and not be boring. But even then I don’t reply right away.
  • I wonder what I smell like to dogs. Do I actually smell like my wild Madagascar vanilla lotion to them? Do they even know about vanilla?
  • I wonder what my hedgehog’s voice would sound like if he could talk. I hope he’d have a cute voice and not a super deep old man voice.
  • I LOVE blogging and writing and getting my ideas down on paper, or on the internet, but most of the time I’m consumed in life and having a good time that I feel like I don’t necessarily have time to write. Which is untrue because I totally have time, I just don’t take the time to sit down and blog. I honestly use that time to sit in my room and listen to music while I daydream or dance around. I like to think I’m too busy to come up with posts, but I really have a lot on my mind and a lot to talk about that I don’t actually say.
  • I don’t care if this makes me sound like a total bitch, but it’s honestly so satisfying to see someone I hate struggling in life. Like yasss bitch, you deserve it. I don’t care where you are or what you’re doing with your life, but if I happen to see you struggling and having a hard time, GOOD(: How can you expect bad things not to happen to you when you’re a shitty person? You struggle and your life sucks because you suck lol. But to everyone who I don’t hate, and those who have personally never done me wrong, I hope life is good and you all have great days and you feel loved and happy.
  • I really like potatoes. I should go eat potatoes.
  • People who complain at rock shows are annoying. Like I don’t get the people who go to hardcore shows or festivals like Warped Tour and complain that they ‘got hurt’ lol like you’re in the crowd what did you think was going to happen. That’s part of the experience; you have to expect it. I’ve been tossed around and kicked in the head and fell on by people too big to crowd surf countless times at shows and I never complain. I’m in the pit, of course that’s gonna happen. I’m used to it and I love it. I wouldn’t want to go to a show if it’s going to be boring and everybody is just standing still and not getting into it. But if you can’t handle that then you should just watch on the sides tbh.
  • Why do people insist on copying you, the things you have, and the things you say and do? Like you really have no personality at all that you have to try and take mine? I personally know a couple people who have no personality and no opinion on anything so they just copy everything I like, everything I say, and everything I do. There was this time I told someone a little detail about something I went through and now they’re using my exact words and phrases and telling it as their own story lol like what the fuck. Not only did you steal my memory but you had to use the very specific phrase I used to describe it and think I wouldn’t know. Retard.
  • It’s weird to me that I have shopping phases where I won’t want to buy anything and don’t buy anything for a few months, then all of a sudden I want to go out and buy everything I see that I want. (Of course I don’t do that, but still)
  • I find myself daydreaming a lot. Like is this normal? Does anybody else daydream profusely or is it just me? I will literally wake up in the morning, kill time on my phone by opening Spotify, listening to music while checking my emails, browsing through Instagram and Snapchat and my blog. Then I’ll just be consumed by random thoughts and start to daydream about something before deciding to come back to reality and participate in life. Or when I’m watching tv or eating, I start to daydream randomly.
  • I love counting my money everyday. Because I make so much money I literally love to count it every day. It sounds silly, but bringing out a big ass stack of 100’s and counting how many thousands I have everyday is so satisfying. And then when I get paid every week and get to add at least another thousand to it is even more satisfying.
  • I like being alone and I don’t mind it at all. I’m happy when I get to be by myself and I’m perfectly fine with that. But I’m also really happy when I get to be around friends. However, in all honesty I get bored of people so fast, or I’ll just get annoyed being around a lot of people so I’d rather be alone and enjoy my own company. Unless it’s my boyfriend, then that’s different. I really enjoy his company, even if we’re just sitting at home doing nothing; and he doesn’t annoy me at all lol
  • I hate how easily I tan. I know everybody wants to be tan and they try so hard to achieve a perfect tan, but me, on the other hand, I try my best to stay as light as I can. I’m not white or pale by any means; I naturally have a little tan to my skin, but I’m still considered really light. But I just never want to tan or get darker.
  • Props to the people who actually have the courage to come up and talk to me WITHOUT being a fucking idiot. Most of the time people are too scared to talk to me so they’ll just awkwardly stare at me as if I can’t see them and they’ll never actually say anything to me. Or I get the people who come up to talk to me but they just act stupid and think they’re the shit. Like, it’s totally fine to introduce yourself but don’t be dumb.
  • I’m really not sure why I love plushies and stuffed animals so much or why I have so many of them. I don’t ‘need’ them, but I obsess over their cute, derpy faces and I have to have them! I don’t think it’s a comfort thing, more like I love collecting and having a bunch of cute ass plushies with adorably derpy faces.
  • I love watching makeup tutorials and sometimes I’m like ‘hey that’s cute, I’m gonna do my makeup like that’ but then I remember I’m actually not that into makeup and don’t have the patience to do any of that shit. Just simple bb cream, bronzer, and mascara works for me(: I look better with less makeup anyway.
  • I’m very territorial. Like just in general. If it’s mine, don’t touch it, don’t use it, don’t even think about using it. Sharing is my least favorite word. Especially when it’s a material object and I know the person either has one of their own, or could easily go buy one. Like what the hell, do I look like a fucking Goodwill to you? How about if you want one go freaking buy it yourself because no, you can’t use mine. Again, my boyfriend doesn’t count. I don’t mind if he touches anything of mine because I know he respects my stuff. But anyone else wanting to use something of mine pisses me off so much. What’s mine is mine, including my boyfriend, so don’t touch him either lol

Hope you enjoyed my ranting about some of the thoughts I  have, and thank you for stopping by my blog(:


Twenty Two

So I turned 22 years old yesterday. Not that it really means anything because I still look like I’m 16 lol

Thanks to my boyfriend, I actually had a pretty dope birthday. I woke up with my boyfriend wishing me a happy birthday again, I went to go see my parents in the early afternoon and they took me out for lunch and dessert, then I went home for a bit to see my cute boyfriend and kiss his face, but he was out grocery shopping cause he was going to be cooking dinner for us. (How romantic) He basically told me that I couldn’t be home from like 6-7 so he gave me $100 of guilt free money to spent on anything I wanted at Sephora lol

I went to the mall and got some stuff I’ve been running out of and also some things I’ve been wanting to try but too lazy to go buy it myself.

image1

I ended up getting a new glow kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I got my palette in ‘Sun Dipped’, which comes with bronzed, summer, tourmaline, and moonstone and they’re all gorgeous as fuck!

image2

I bought a new Sephora eyebrow brush. It’s just a normal angled eyebrow brush so I didn’t feel like taking a photo of it lol

I got a pair of Huda lashes in Samantha #7. They’re really long and pretty and more importantly, they’re wispy as fuck. I don’t normally like false lashes since I have eyelash extensions, but recently I’ve been letting my extensions naturally fall out so I can get a new set completely. So in the meantime, if I’m wearing false lashes I want the good shit.

image4

And lastly I picked up the Benefit They’re Real mascara to try it out. I’ve been wanting to try this mascara out for a while now but I haven’t gone to buy it until now. I got the small travel size one because I only put mascara on my bottom lashes so I felt like if I bought the regular sized tube it would have just been a waste. It’s so cute and small and I think it’ll be perfect for my bottom lashes.

image3

My boyfriend said that I had to spend the whole $100 guilt free but I only spent $88 at Sephora. I couldn’t find something I wanted to use the rest of the $12 on cause the other things I wanted were like $50.(I actually ended up using that left over money on gas today)

I came home at 7 like my boyfriend said to and he came out to greet me at my car with a little crown and a happy birthday balloon(: He ended up not making dinner, but throwing a little surprise party instead with our friends. I didn’t know he was going to be surprising me with a party but then people starting popping out of bathrooms and closets lol

And the rest of the night consisted of getting drunk, playing beer pong and Cards Against Humanity, and weird conversations. It was an awesome surprise and a great night with great people. Thanks to my boyfriend for putting that together last minute(:

I Finally Moved Out

Hey guys! Welcome back to another blog post. I know I’ve been gone for a bit since I had my wisdom teeth removed but I have been kind of busy to be honest. Other than recovering from having my teeth pulled out, I returned to work for a bit, and, the main point of this post, I FINALLY MOVED OUT OF MY PARENTS HOUSE. Yay! I’ve actually been living in my new apartment for a little over a week now, but still. I’m excited(:

My boyfriend ended up moving back to Vegas along with his cool cousin and we all got an apartment together. And let me tell you, I’ve been wanting to move out of my parents house since I was like 16 years old; but I wanted to do it right and wanted to be comfortable in that situation. Sure, I had the means to move before, but just because I was unhappy didn’t mean that I was going to do anything dramatic and try to move out on my own.

But now that I’m older, getting to move out and getting to live with my boyfriend is suuuuuper liberating. Like this is all I’ve been wanting. To move out, have my own place, live with my boyfriend and be fucking happy as fuck lol

Seriously though, I’m even happier now that I get to come home to my cute ass boyfriend, cuddles, and Law & Order SVU like DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!? He freaking cooks for me and is literally the best ever and I appreciate him so much. I’m actually excited to go home now. I actually WANT to be home lol as much as I love going to work and making lots of money, I think I love coming home to my boyfriend and his love way more.

But yeah, just thought I would share some of my happiness and excitement with you guys(:

Vegas shows vs. LA shows

With my recent travels to Los Angeles, I have been going to quite a few shows while I am there. I think I’ve been to enough where I can notice a major difference between growing up going to shows in Las Vegas versus going to shows in Los Angeles.

In my opinion, I dislike Los Angeles shows so much. As much as I love LA, going to shows there is sooo boring. The crowds are lame and no one does anything other than stand around or record everything on their phones. 

Now, I grew up in Las Vegas as a hardcore kid. I went to a lot of rock, punk, and metal shows growing up. I’m used to crazy crowds, moshing, crowd surfing, and getting tossed around or kicked in the face accidentally. To me, that’s a fun show. If I don’t walk away with some battle wounds, was I even really at a hardcore show? Lol

So being in LA and going to some shows, and being in crowds that didn’t interact or do anything was just weird. I went to go see one of my favorite bands, All Time Low, in Los Angeles and they played with Sleeping With Sirens and a few other bands; and I still enjoyed the show because ATL is one of my favorites, but I’m so used to seeing them in Vegas where the crowd is crazy and we’re all jumping around and having a great time together, but that show in LA was just plain boring. Everyone just watched. What’s the point of being there then? If I’m just going to stand and watch I could be at home doing that lol

And then I went to go see Silverstein with Emarosa and a couple other heavier bands in LA, again the crowd was kind of retarded and nothing like what I’m used to.

As much as I don’t like Vegas, going to shows here is wayy better than going to shows in LA. The energy of the crowd, the interaction, everyone is hyped; that’s what I love about going to shows. That’s what I’m used to and that’s what I expect, especially out of a hardcore show.

Even on Saturday when I went to Extreme Thing, it was really refreshing to go to a music festival in Vegas where the crowds are what I’m used to and what I love. I had such a blast being a part of the crazy crowds. 

Deciding to go to Extreme Thing and having the best time there gets me super pumped for Warped Tour this summer! I originally wanted to go to the one in Pomona, CA since I had planned to be in LA for my birthday visiting my boyfriend anyway. But since I went to Extreme Thing, I would actually prefer to go to Warped in Vegas instead just because I know how the crowds are and know they will be awesome as always. So hopefully I can get my boyfriend here for Warped and we can go together. I want him to experience what going to a real hardcore show is actually like since he’s never really been to one lol

Well, I hope everybody is having a great day, and thanks for dropping by!(:


What A Week!

This week has been crazy! As my first week back from being in California with my boyfriend, it was a very productive and long one! I have only been back in Vegas for 11 days but it feels like I’ve already been here for a month since I worked every day for long hours and was exhausted every day. It made my days seem way longer than just 24 hours. But what a week it has been for me! Just as I predicted I made over $3000 for the week and I could not be happier. Thanks to all the people who came to Vegas and made my work week awesome(:

Unfortunately all my bills are due next week so a little over $1000 of what I just made will be gone, but the rest is all mine to save. 

Again, I’m deciding to type up a blog post at the weirdest time; it’s currently 1:50am and I don’t really know why I do this. I’m just kind of laying in bed right now and typing things up as they come to me xD

But yeah, I just wanted to share what an amazing work week I had(: It’s funny to think I’m only going to be in Vegas for maybe another two weeks until I head back to Los Angeles again 😂 but I’m always there anyway. I basically live in LA and work in Vegas. 

I’m really excited for the next couple weeks and of course going back to LA cause that’s where my cuddly boyfriend is, and I can’t wait to see him again(:

I ended up deciding to take the next couple of days off just to relax and reward myself for working as much as I did last week. Plus I have a couple of appointments to go to and things to take care of. 

Hope everyone had a wonderful week as well! And thanks for stopping by(:


Late Night Thoughts

Last night when I couldn’t fall asleep I was having random thoughts about my life and decided to type it up on my phone. But again, I was so tired I didn’t actually post it xD So I’m just going to post it now, as I wrote it last night. 

Right now as I’m writing this, it is 12:57 am, I’m so tired and exhausted from work but I can’t sleep, and I can hear my hedgehog crunching away at his food.

I’m having late night thoughts about my life and just how things have been. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little stressed, but that’s just because I have been working everyday for like 10 hours. I constantly come home exhausted and never get enough sleep for the next day; and as much as that bothers me to come home feeling like poop everyday, I can’t really complain because with the crazy amount of money I make, I’m willing to sacrifice my days for. It’s not like I have much to do in Vegas anyway to be honest. My boyfriend currently lives in Hollywood so it’s not like I have him to look forward to or hang out with everyday, and the one friend I have works too so we don’t get to chill a lot. I don’t have much to do so why not be at work and make money?  I pretty much dedicate my time in Vegas to working and making my thousands every week, and just saving everything so I can actually enjoy life and not struggle with money. 

Thinking about how things currently are and what the future holds makes me really happy. I can’t complain about how crazy awesome my life has been and how positive things are. I’m making my money, managing my finances, traveling and doing the things I want to do, and I have an awesome boyfriend who I care so much about and adore. Like it can’t get any better at the moment. And I’m so proud of the things I have accomplished in such a short amount of time. I want to stay on the path I’m currently on for a while, and I may never have to work again and just live off my riches. Cause I don’t know about anyone else, but I plan to retire when I’m 30 🙂 I’m not trying to work for the rest of my life lol

It’s currently spring break in Vegas, meaning there is lots and lots of people coming into the city and that gives me a chance to make so much money off of them. I normally average about $1500 a week, but since it’s spring break and super busy at work I’m expecting to make a little over $3000 for the week. So that’s pretty cool. I mean, who cares about not being able to go out and do things when I’m making that kind of money lol 
But life has been good. I’m grateful for everything I have and everything I am able to do because I made it happen for myself. Nobody helped me with anything, or helped me get anywhere, and it feels good to say all the things I have I paid for myself and did everything myself. I’m grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way and I’m grateful for the way my life changed so fast, and the life I am able to live. 

It’s like almost 1:30am right now, so I should try and get some rest.

Thanks for continuing to stop by my blog! Have a great day everyone, and here’s to the future!(:


Devil Scratches 

So the other day my boyfriend and I were sleeping and out of nowhere at 5am I get woken up by the sound of loud scratching. It was creepy and it sounded like it was coming closer or like it was right by my ear. I had been asleep but had been hearing it go on for about 10 minutes. I immediately thought devils for some reason lol I was like oh my god is there a devil scratching at the wall or something??? I didn’t even know what to think. 

But then I opened my eyes and looked down to the floor all tired and I see my little pet hedgehog rummaging around on the floor, scratching at a box. And I was like wtf is he doing? What’s he doing on the floor?? HOW DID HE GET OUT OF HIS CAGE??? 

I just kind of looked at him for a minute and was so confused. I got up and went to pick him up but I couldn’t really see him too well, so I walked over to turn on the light and stood there for 5 seconds while my eyes adjusted. 

I walked back over to where my hedgehog was but he was no where to be found. So again I was like WTF. 

At this point I was tripping and thought maybe I was imagining things cause how could he have possibly been on the floor instead of in his cage? How could he even get out of his cage when it’s 16 inches high? I came to the conclusion that I was basically on drugs and seeing things earlier cause he definitely wasn’t just casually chilling on the floor. I go to his cage to make sure he is sleeping in there, but I check AND HES NOT IN THERE. So of course I trip out even more cause I’m still 80% asleep and I’m not sure what the fuck is going on; if I’m seeing things or dreaming this. But I was like okay I saw him on the floor and thought I was dreaming, I checked his cage and he’s not in there, so I must not be dreaming, but I turned around to look at him and he wasn’t even there so wtf is going on here 😂 At the time, I couldn’t make sense of anything lol

So I go back over to the bed to look for him, thinking he’s hanging out in one of the shoes or something but he wasn’t there. I had a feeling he crawled behind the bed since he’s a hedgehog and likes to hide in small spaces. And surely enough after I shined a light behind the bed he was all nestled tightly inbetween the bed and the wall. And then I was like ‘RALPH! WHAT THE FUCK MAN!?’ 

I had to wake my boyfriend up so he could move the bed back so I could grab him and put him back in his cage. 

Turns out he did find a way to get out of his cage. He ended up crawling on top of his litter box and climbed up the side and fell 16 inches from the top of his cage. What a little retard. 

So a couple of questions come to mind:

Why was he trying to escape? I give you everything and you’re trying to escape why??

Did it hurt when he fell out of this cage? Cause that’s a pretty big drop and I hoped he didn’t get hurt.

How long was he out of his cage for? We fell asleep around 1am and he woke me up a little after 5. So he could have been cold and hungry the whole time.

Why did he decide to come over to the bed? Which I’m glad he did do, because there are so many places he could have hid and gotten wedged between. Like behind the oven and I would just cry…

Hopefully he learned his lesson and won’t be trying to find ways to climb out again, since there’s no food, water, or warmth outside of his cage lol

Long story short, a hedgehog scratching at a box next to your bed at night is scary and sounds like a devil scratching at your walls. 

Never underestimate a hedgehog.

Thanks for stopping by! 

And have a great day, everyone(:


More About My Pet Hedgehog

  
I always get a lot of questions on my pet hedgehog, Ralph; what it’s like to have him as a pet, care information, food and all that, so today I will be going through my experience of owning a pet hedgehog.

At the moment, he is 14 weeks old, I got him when he was 6 weeks, so I’ve had him for just under 2 months. But within the short amount of time I’ve had him, I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what it is like to have a hedgehog as a pet and can confidently share my views with everyone.

I originally thought that Ralph was an African Pygmy hedgehog, because that is the most common domestic hedgehog out there, but I recently learned that he is actually an Algerian black hedgehog. Based on his nose, his color and specific markings that only Algerian hedgehogs have. Which makes sense because I would google pet hedgehogs and look at different hedgehog instagram accounts and they never looked like my Ralph lol

  
But anyways let’s get into the information I have based on my personal experiences with Little Ralph.
I feel like everyone will have a different experience with their pet hedgehog, no ones experiences will be the same since hedgehogs come with their own personality, so these are just my accounts(:

— 

• Choosing your hedgehog:

When choosing your hedgehog, whether it be from a breeder or an exotic pet store, you should always ask to see the hedgehogs and physically handle them. Pick up and handle different hedgehogs and pay attention to how the hedgehog reacts. You’ll be able to tell almost right away if that hedgehog is nice and friendly, or grumpy and scared. One that stays balled up is most likely scared and maybe not as nice and friendly. A friendly and social hedgehog will uncurl in your hands and turn curious and want to explore. I handled maybe 5 different hedgehogs before I chose the one I wanted. Many of them were friendly but they were female, and since I already had a name in mind, the one I chose had to be a male hedgehog. When I did come across a male hedgehog I handled him and he was friendly with me. He let me pick him up and he uncurled in my hand and didn’t stay balled up. I held him for quite awhile, and he was the one I ended up taking home(:

• Hedgehog supplies:

Essential hedgehog supplies include,

1. A good cage/home for them. Something with at least 4 square feet of space is the minimum for them. I use a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 foot plastic storage container that sits about 15 inches high. It’s wide enough where he has good space to move around, and tall enough to where he can’t climb out. (Hedgehogs can be climbers) 

2. Bedding. I personally use fleece lining for my hedgehogs home, as I see almost all hedgehog owners do. Other options include paper bedding (carefresh brand), or aspen wood shavings. I have not used any kind of wood shavings for my hedgehog but I have heard that pine and cedar shaving are very bad for them and can cause respiratory problems and be dusty, which is not good for them. I’ve heard that aspen shavings would be appropriate if you wanted to use wood shavings but again it can be dusty, but it’s safer than pine and cedar. Again, I have never used wood shavings for bedding, so I cannot personally say any effects they may have. 
I have used carefresh paper bedding, and I did like it, as did Ralph, since he can burrow himself in it and dig, but it’s not very sightly in my opinion, I’ve noticed that even though it says dust free, it seemed to create dust, it can cause health problems for your hedgehog if they accidentally ingest some, and paper bedding can also harbor mites. (Which my hedgehog just got treated for, and I will talk about further down in this post.)

I prefer fleece lining for his bedding because it’s cleaner, it looks better, it’s not dusty, does not harbor mites, and is a healthier choice all around in my opinion.

3. Running wheel. A wheel is definitely needed for your hedgehog so they can get their exercise and help to stay healthy and not be obese, which hedgehogs are prone to. 

4. A hideaway/snuggle pouch. These are essential since hedgehogs are very private animals and like to hide. Having a hideaway such as a plastic igloo is perfect for them, and a snuggle sack is made of fleece so it will keep them warm too while they like to hide in them.

5. Food and water. Hedgehogs should be fed a good, high protein and low fat diet. Commercial hedgehog foods are mostly junk. It’s not made from good quality ingredients or real meats. Basically just stay clear or ‘hedgehog food’ itself. Switch to a high quality dry cat food that has real meat as the first ingredient and follows the high protein low fat diet. Their food should have a protein content between 28-35% and a fat content of 10-15%. I personally use Blue Buffalo dry indoor kitten food. It’s grain free, does not contain corn and is made with real meats. It is also good to treat your hedgehog with other foods like mealworms, earthworms and even human food like scrambled eggs, chicken breast and veggies! Right now, since Ralph is still a baby, I free feed him so he can eat whenever he is hungry, but when they’re adults their food needs to be monitored so they do not become obese. 1-3 teaspoons a day is good, along with exercise. As far as water, I just use a water bottle for Ralph, that attaches to his cage.

Here is an updated photo of Ralph’s home:

• Caring for your hedgehog:

1. Bathing. It’s obviously important to care for your hedgehog, which includes baths, trimming their nails, and keeping an eye on their health in case a vet trip is needed. Hedgehogs are generally clean animals and don’t have to be bathed daily or even weekly. Once or twice a month is enough depending on your hedgehog. Hedgehogs have naturally dry skin so lots of baths will end up drying out their skin more. When I give Ralph a full bath, I put some baby shampoo in the water since it is gentle and take a toothbrush and brush through his quills. Hedgehogs will often relieve themselves while they are in water, so be prepared to have some poop floating around lol. After a bath, I will wrap him up in a towel and dry him off and keep him warm. If needed, this is when I would trim his nails since he is most likely relaxed. It’s important to trim their nails every two weeks or as needed so that they don’t get too long, which can be unhealthy for them as they will curl and can eventually cause them pain.

Hedgehogs are prone to having poopy feet, since they are pretty clumsy and will poop and often take a step in it causing poop to be stuck to their feet or nails, so foot baths just to clean them off are more needed than actual baths. 

Caring for them is super easy since they are such low maintenance animals. They don’t need a lot of attention, they need a minimal interaction of 30 mins a day, but I handle my hedgehog a lot. He’s constantly being played with and picked up throughout the day, which I think is why he is so social and not scared all the time. Since they are nocturnal, hedgehogs basically sleep all day and are up and active at night. Since I work during the day, I’m not really missing out on any bonding time with him since he sleeps, but when I come home around 1am he is usually awake and I will bond with him and handle him then.

2. Bonding. Bonding with your hedgehog is very important so that they get used to you handling them and don’t stay balled up all the time. They will become more friendly and easy to handle and be more comfortable with you if you handle them all the time and bond with them so they know it’s you. My hedgehog travels with me wherever I go and people tell me all the time that they’ve had hedgehogs or someone they know has had one and they were all really angry and grumpy and that mine is really friendly and happy. So I assume I’m doing something right by handling him all the time.

3. Quilling. Quilling is natural and it’s where their baby quills will fall out and their adult ones come in. This happens quite a few times throughout their lifetime, and I can imagine it is a painful process for them since quills are sharp and they have to break through the skin again. My hedgehog was recently treated for mites at the vet. At the time, I was using paper bedding, which can harbor mites, and I noticed a couple of his quills, at the base of them, the skin was raised and really red and looked irritated. The next day, I saw there was a quill at the top of his head and it was bleeding, so I took him to the vet right away to get checked and discovered he had mites, and he got treated with Revolution right away. Mites can come from different sources. It could have been the paper bedding or it could have been from the fact that I got him from a pet store and they keep many hedgies in a cage together, which isn’t good. In 3 weeks, he goes back to the vet to make sure he is all healthy again.

4. Health. It’s very important to pay attention to your hedgehog and their individual needs. Pay attention to how much they eat, when or if they eat, how much they poop and the consistency, how active they are, and if they change any part of their normal daily routine, like if they are scratching more, or not eating. This can be essential in spotting any problems your hedgie may be having. Regular vet check ups are good just to make sure your hedgie is healthy. If for any reason you are not sure if there is something more going on with your hedgehog, it’s always best to just take them to a vet.

  
• My experience:

My overall experience with having a hedgehog as a pet has been awesome! I love my little Ralph so much and he’s so cute and fun to interact with. Of course he has his grumpy moments like when I wake him up to play, but he is overall a great pet for me and I love taking him everywhere with me.

He doesn’t seem to mind going with me anywhere and traveling with me all the time.

One concern I had at the time of buying my hedgehog was that I read somewhere that hedgehogs can get car sick. I wanted to make sure that he could travel with me and not get sick since I travel a lot and wasn’t going to be leaving him behind. When I asked, the guy helping me said that none of his personal hedgehogs have ever gotten sick from traveling a lot. 

Every hedgehog may be different, but my Ralph travels with me everywhere and he has never gotten sick.

I love that he is super low maintenance. I don’t have to clean him or anything of his things constantly, he’s not messy, and he doesn’t make any noise. The only time I hear him is when he’s eating, I can hear him crunching. Which I think is cute lol or when he’s drinking water from his water bottle I can hear him. But he doesn’t bark or squeak or cause any problems. He’s just a really chill animal that doesn’t do much lol

I guess if anyone has more questions about my hedgehog or how to care for hedgehogs, you can leave me a comment on this post and I will do my best to answer them(:

Thanks for stopping by! And have a great day, everyone(:


Valentine’s Day 2016

I’m sure my feelings about Valentine’s Day will always stay the same. Meaning, it’s so pointless. It’s not a big deal and I would never make it a big deal because it’s really just another day to me. Who cares about getting gifts and flowers and chocolates or teddy bears or the retarded ‘traditions’ on Valentine’s Day lol. As if you’re ‘supposed’ to or something. Get me a gift randomly on any other day of the year and I may be impressed. But Valentine’s Day, no thanks.

I’ve been in Hollywood for a little over a week now with my boyfriend and how I look at it, basically every day that I get to spend with him is Valentine’s Day. Just because I love his company and we’re always affectionate with each other anyways. Our Valentine’s Day was simple. We just hung out at home all day and watched shows and listened to Kanye West lol

Then around 8 we went out to dinner. It was simple and nice. There was no need for some big extravagant gesture of love, like wtf, just getting to be with my boyfriend is enough because he’s so awesome. Like look at him 😭😭❤️

 I did have a good Valentine’s Day with him and just a great week in general. I hope everyone else has been having good days and enjoying life however you want to.

I was only going to stay in Hollywood for like 10 days but I decided I’m going to stay for 2 weeks again. I really have no reason to go back to Vegas at the moment so I’m just going to enjoy my time here and spend every day with my boyfriend.

Anyways, I hope everybody has a great day, and thank you for continuing to stop by my blog!(:

Feel free to go back and read my previous Valentine’s Day posts(:

I’m Getting There

Things have been, not so great for me lately. It’s been pretty rough. I’ve been sad and upset, and put down, and just not myself lately. Sometimes I find myself wanting to crawl up in a ball and stay in my room and cry and not come out or participate in life for awhile. But even with those thoughts, I continue to surprise myself on how I’m able to push through everything the best I can, deal with the shit and negativity; because what else can I really do; and continue to do the best I can do for myself so that I can finally get out of this town.

It takes everything I have to not give up and to keep trying. But I know eventually I’ll get to where I want to be; and to be truly happy.

Not everyday is a bad day though. A lot of the time I do have good days thanks to my best friends who are so willing to come out with me at odd hours of the day to have random adventures and to escape a hectic and stressful life for a bit. I’m forever grateful for the few friends I have that are willing to go on those adventures and random drives in the middle of the night with me. Who’ll have those deep talks about life with me but also be able to just go out and be crazy and random.

But when I’m not keeping myself busy with work or seeing a friend, things seem to go wrong for me otherwise. And it’s annoying. And repetitive. I find myself using any excuse I can to not be home, and to get out of the house and do something or hang out with someone; just so I don’t have to be home and around such negativity. But overall I still try to keep a smile on my face and maintain my bubbly personality that everyone loves about me. It gets tiring. And I don’t want to have to always feel the way I’ve been feeling or awhile.

It honestly sucks when you’re trying so hard to get your life started and you’re doing absolutely everything on your own and you have the closest of people trying to set you backward so that you don’t go anywhere. Like WTF, be cool and either help me out or stay out of my way. If you’re not going to help me reach my goals or say anything positive then there’s no need for me to tell you anything about what I’m doing or my plans. I just have to triumph over all the bullshit and do my own thing, despite all this overwhelming negativity around me.

All I can do is try my best to keep a positive mind and attitude, work hard, save all my money, and when I feel that I am fully financially prepared, move away and start new someplace else.

I know that once I’m out of here and doing my own thing finally, I’ll be at my best and I’ll be my happiest because I’ll finally be away from everything that once drove me crazy. Hopefully by the end of this wild and emotional journey, all the bad things haven’t taken too much out of me and I’m able to collect myself and start again in a new home, in a new city, in a different state, and different environment.

Thinking about the future and where I want to be, where I want to go and who I want surrounding me; where I know I’ll be in less than a year of hard work, determination and saving, gets me really excited.

I have to do what’s best for me and what will make me happy, regardless of what anybody else thinks about it. Because if there’s anything I’ve learned at all in my 21 years of living, it’s that no one is ever going to tell you that what you want to do is a good idea and that you should do it. But who cares. Go for it. Do what you want and don’t regret it. Especially if it’s something you really want or something that will make you happy.

I’m not afraid to be alone anymore in whatever I’m doing in life. I’ve realized that I’ll probably be alone for this journey, but fuck it. That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t take these chances and do something different. I’m doing this for myself, with or without anyone’s support or encouragement because I know it’s what I want. Everybody deserves to be happy, in whatever way that may be for them.

And I know my happiness will come soon. Maybe in more than one way.
