Lately I've been thinking about my future. More and more I've been wishing that I would've pursued a field that I never thought of when beginning college 11 years ago. I've been thinking about how I wish I would've learned how to become an animal caretaker or animal trainer. The recent story of my friend Miguel and his girlfriend Laura -- who happens to be an animal trainer at a Sea World in California -- really hits the nail on the head because I couldn't be more envious of what the job may potentially entail. Just recently, Miguel had to rearrange a room in their house because Laura was in Florida picking up a baby kangaroo for Sea World, it would need to stay over at their house during the evenings because it's still so young. The kangaroo is there now, his name is Melbourne. He's only about 4 months old and each night Miguel and Laura feed him formula with a bottle, just like a human baby. They have a pouch for little Melbourne to climb into and according to Miguel he climbs into it every night.
How adorable is that!
