Hello everyone! I haven’t blogged for over a week. The reason(s) why is because, it was my birthday so I had a lot of fun with that. Then the next day I went for a trip up north, and it was beautiful there. Then I had to do driver’s ed, and that was pretty tiring. Finally, I’m spending the last few days of summer trying to do as much as possible. But there will be next blogs coming up soon for sure. ❤
This is exciting. We’re finally at the last part of my first ever travel blog. It’s been fun, but pretty tiring. Each blog post consisted of content that took me up to two hours to complete. Can you even imagine if they were all in one blog? This blog however will be fairly short. In part one, I talked about hotels. In part two, I talked about sights and attractions. Now for part three, I will be showing all of you bloggers some awesome stuff that I bought at gift shops, and that you can pick up, too, as well as a couple of restaurants. Let’s begin, shall we?
I went to a bunch of restaurants, but these were my ultimate favourites:
- The Grand Buffet (Location = Niagara Falls)
- Woody’s Burgers (Location = Mississauga)
- Chop House (Location = Grand Valley)
And if I had to pick from one of these, I would definitely choose The Grand Buffet without hesitation. The other ones were good, but this one just can’t be beat. It can get a little pricey, it’s $40 per person not including tax, so for just two people it can come up to almost $100 with tax. However, everything is perfect. The view, the scenery, the service, the food, the way everything is prepared, etc. This buffet has everything. No, I mean it. Ask me if they have it, and the answer will be yes. I got full on calamari rings. So tasty. They had every kind of food from every kind of culture, it was amazing. Their deserts were out of this world. IT WAS JUST SO GOOD. If you’re ever in Niagara Falls, please go there. Please. You will thank me a million times. Also, a plus is, kids under the age of 12 eat for free, so it’s great for families all over. 🙂 A part that I absolutely adored about this restaurant was the chocolate fountain. Mmmm. And, they have a balcony in which you can go out and see the falls and take pictures if you’d like.
. . . did I mention yet that I loved shopping? In my other blogs, for sure, yes. Along with all of the amazing clothes, shoes, make-up, and more from Victoria’s Secret, Pink, Claire’s, etc, I also bought a lot of unique things that I want to share with you guys. Keep reading to see.
From the CN Tower, I got a beautiful painting. My room is full of paintings, I love artwork so much. This picture is of downtown Toronto during fall from the island. It’s hanging on my wall near one of my closets and my laptop area, so I can always look at it while I’m blogging. Then, I got an awesome change purse and some cool Canadian maple leaf earrings.
The aquarium was loads of fun! I got a cool shark tooth necklace, a real one. It’s anywhere between 5 to 60 million years old. Then, I got a mood ring. Ever since I was a little kid, every time I go on a trip I buy a mood ring in whatever city I’m visiting. Weird, I know, but, it’s tradition. Why ruin it now? I also got one of those things that’s full of water and has a bunch of tiny floating items in it, and when you turn it they all swim everywhere. They’re all shaped like marine animals. I love playing with those things. Yep, it can actually keep me entertained. Then, I bought a sting ray plush. Just because it was cute. I didn’t show its pattern, but it’s pink and blue and has spirals on it. Too cute!
Out of all of the places, I have to say, this is the most unique store I went to. It’s called “Spiritual Emporium”, and they have everything from voodoo dolls to perfumes. So you can go there if you want to put a hex on someone, or spray on some scent that give you “magical powers”. Haha, okay, maybe not that much. But they have stones for a bunch of different things. I bought a scent for success. You spray it on whenever you want to be successful at something. So far I’ve used it twice, and it only worked one of the times. Not sure if it works, but it’s called “Moon Beezy” and it does smell nice. I also got a stone . . . I’m going to be keeping it a secret what it does. 😉 Sure hope it works! The papers are for how to clean the rock when I feel like it’s been touched by the wrong person or hexed, and the other sticky note is of a spiritual trick that a girl that worked there showed me how to do. Again, I’m keeping this one to myself.
I don’t need to write a bunch to get the point across of how awesome this is. Instead, I’ll just write down in point form what I got.
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Hoodie
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Flip Flops
- Kisses Journal
- Scented Body Gel
- Hershey’s Body Lotion
- Kisses Pajamas (comfiest things ever, by the way)
- Jolly Rancher Cherry Lip Balm
The Hershey’s things were almost $200, just for those. But they were worth it—I love every single item.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHOCOLATE FACTORY
Do you see that? Let me explain to you—that is what perfection looks like, friends. It’s the best fudge I’ve ever had in my entire life. I only had it once other than this, in Stratford when I went to go see a few plays. Then I saw that they had it in one of the large malls I went to, and I jumped at the chance to get it. They have a variety of different types of fudge. They have fudge, candy apples, cookies, truffles, and basically everything you can imagine to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. MORE, PLEASE! It’s getting me hungry, now I want more fudge . . . 😥 R.I.P to my fudge, eaten and gone so soon. I also went to this one smoothie place, and my boyfriend and I got the peach cherry flavour. Again, can I have more?
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR READING ALL THREE PARTS OF MY FIRST TRAVEL BLOG! It was fun, and tiring, and for some reason, I wrote all three of them between 1 AM to 3 AM. Why? Don’t ask—I guess I’m just more active at those times. Plus, I got Starbucks here with me, too. That helps. Jacob and I had an amazing/lovely trip together, and we can’t wait to do more travelling with each other in the future! Also, today’s my birthday. Happy birthday to me! 😀
UNTIL NEXT TIME,
Part two of my first travel blog is finally here! Of course, three days late, but better late than never. So, let’s do this. Part one was focusing on hotels, and part two is focused on places I went and stuff. Hopefully some of you travellers will find this helpful, and if you’re around the city you can check out these different things to do. Ready? Okay.
Lifetime Athletic Gym
Our very first day—after getting off the train and eating some nasty KFC—we stopped at a gym that was the fanciest gym I’ve ever laid eyes on in my life. Called “Lifetime Athletic”. It was incredible, and the price isn’t bad for all you get. It ranges from $80-$100.00/month per person, and there’s also family deals. We just walked inside and got a tour from one of the staff working there that day. It’s too bad that there’s not one in Windsor, because the gym I go to is really crappy in comparison, and it’s $40.00 monthly. But for those who live in the Toronto/Mississauga area, I highly recommend that you go check out this gym. It has: rock climbing, indoor pool, outdoor pool, classes, personal trainers, indoor basketball court, indoor soccer field . . . I’ll stop there. But, it’s crazy. And there’s also a restaurant inside the gym, as well as a juice bar, waiting room with HDTVs and massage chairs and get this . . . there’s a makeup/beauty store in the gym. Now that I think is going a little overboard. Click here for more details on how you can get a membership today.
And then, I had to go back a week later to this:
Indoor skydiving! Personally, I’m the type of person who’d rather have the real authentic deal, so this doesn’t really appeal to me to much. Besides, it really wasn’t as awesome as it looks. I was so excited to go, because it’s a big building, so you’d think you get to drop from the ceiling, right? There’s this little tube you go into and air blows you around and that’s pretty much it. It’s over $80 per person for two flights, and over $100 for four flights, and there’s also family package deals for about $180+. You also have to go through a couple hours of a course, so they can teach you what to do and how to put on your skydiving outfit properly and all the techniques and stuff. You get approximately four minutes to fly, and you get to fly twice with your package. I want to say this place is really awesome, but the truth is, it’s kinda a money waster. But if you’re looking for a few hours of fun, and want to kill some time, I’d say, check this place out for sure. Here’s their website for more information: Click here.
This isn’t too special. Even most small cities have movie theatres. But hey, they were sure a lot fancier than the movie theatres I’m used too. They were huge and had a whole bunch of goodies in them. It was cool. I don’t want this to turn into a movie review blog, but here are the movies that we saw:
Like I said, I don’t want this to turn into a movie review blog post but I will go over what I thought of the movies. We saw Maleficent first, and I really liked it. My boyfriend didn’t really like any of the movies, but he liked this one more than the other one, haha. Maleficent was what Sleeping Beauty should have been. All very good actors, all very beautiful, an interesting story. However it was very predictable, but that’s okay. It was definitely the better version of Sleeping Beauty, and Angelina Jolie looked awesome as for usual.
My Rating = 7.5/10
Jacob’s Rating = 6/10
And I’ve never read the book for “Fault in our Stars”, but I was definitely expecting something different. I was really excited to see this movie, and the whole day I bugged my boyfriend about how much fun it was going to be and jokingly he’d obviously say he wasn’t excited at all. The whole movie had one tone: depressing. Personally I believe that a good movie should have a whole variety of moods to keep the viewer intrigued. Happy, sad, angry, excited, etc. But the entire movie was basically “Oh my gosh I’m going to die life sucks” and even when the two lovers met it just felt stale. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on it at all, I think it was very well planned out and has good characters that were written strongly. But it just isn’t my cup of tea. What’s funny is my boyfriend had a cold that night, so he was sniffling every minute and at the end he said, “I tried to hold it in because I didn’t want anyone to think that I was crying.” Haha. He also jokingly called the movie “disgusting”—but he always does that, just to make me laugh.
My Rating = 7/10
Jacob’s Rating = 5/10
Hit up Flickster to discover what movies are playing in your area today. [I keep writing it “Flickerster” . . I must be exhausted.]
I absolutely adore canoeing. I go several times per summer, sometimes during the fall and spring, too. I love it when you’re out on open water, hardly anything surrounding you. Everything’s calm, it’s just you and the boat and a paddle and everything’s serene and pure. Plus, I love Canadian geese! They’re little cuties, and we got so close to them! And we saw them run on water, which was also the most cutest thing in the world. I’m sorry to all my readers out there but I don’t remember what the name of this park was! But to go canoeing, you can just search up online the closest parks to the areas in which you live in. Also, if anyone knows what park this is, you can drop me a comment in the box below. We also had a BBQ, even though we burnt the corn, it was still delish. We had salted butter. Yes.
Let me start off by saying that the CN Tower is definitely one of my favourite things to do when visiting Toronto. Every time I’m there, I make an effort to go at least one time. I’m not afraid of heights, but sometimes it makes me queasy. Especially when you’re on the elevator and you’re going up thousands of feet and you feel your ears popping. The whole elevator is glass. The floor, the sides, everything. It can be a little overwhelming for people who get nervous around heights, so I wouldn’t recommend this to everyone. There is also a fee to go up. The rates vary.
The CN Tower is spectacular. The views are incredible, you can practically see all of Toronto. For several years, the CN Tower was the world’s tallest building. Now, it’s the third tallest. They also have three different restaurants. Horizons, 360, and Le Café. All are pretty expensive, the most expensive is 360, then Horizons, then Le Café. Reservations are recommended. Also, I absolutely loved the gift shop there! But then again, I love gift shops anywhere! Also, you can rent rooms here for special occasions. See the website below for more details.
For more information on the CN Tower located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, click here.
I know I say this for basically everything, but . . . THIS WAS SO COOL! Of course I’d say that. If you know me, I’m a fish maniac and I love sharks and pretty much everything that lives underwater. Again, there is a fee to go in, but it’s around $20-$30 per person and never more. Let’s take a look at some of my fave pics, shall we?:
And as for always, here’s the website: Click here.
Another funny thing that happened, was, as I was taking pictures of the entrance and of the CN Tower, a girl was also taking pictures. We collided, and she started apologizing like I was going to kill her. She looked at me, basically screamed, and said: “Oh my God, no, no, are you okay?! I AM SO SORRY! I AM SO SORRY! ARE YOU OKAY?!” She was cute, I don’t know if I looked intimidating or she just had a bad experience, or she was just overly friendly. We’ll never know.
Now, I’m terrible with directions. Absolutely horrible. So I don’t know exactly where Lakeshore is, but I can tell you (obviously) that it’s somewhere in the Toronto area. Lakeshore is basically a suburb, but a really pretty suburb. With tons of cute restaurants, stores, beaches and a lake with boats and yachts and a bunch of birds, ducks, and geese. We went shopping (more to come in part three of my blog). I also finally tried Second Cup for the first time. I had a frozen hot chocolate, and it tastes exactly like a real hot chocolate, but cold. It was incredible. I also went shopping and got a lot of cool things (I blew two whole pay cheques on my vacay.) All I have is pictures of the adorable birds/geese/ducks we fed. It was amazing, some got so close to us. We even taught one how to jump!
. . . and more feeding ducks at other places . . .
What can I say? I’m a total animal lover. And I bought them their very own soft salty pretzel. ‘Cause that’s what I do.
Also known as, one of the prettiest and most touristy towns in all of Canada! It is gorgeous here, and there is so much stuff to do. Have to be honest, this is the place where I think I blew most of my money. We did so much amazing things here, that I’ll only mention a few. What’s your favourite thing to do in Niagara Falls?! The falls? The shopping? The hotels? The food?
Only in Niagara Falls do they have “KEEP CALM” soap.
Hershey’s & Coca-Cola Store
WARNING: Shopaholics will never want to leave. Oh! And chocolate and sweet lovers, too. It’s a good world sometimes. They’re not the same store, but they are connected to each other. They’re the only ones in all of Canada, and by far, I bet they make the most money of all the stores in Niagara Falls. It’s always packed. I won’t mention it in this blog, but part three is all about stuff I bought. Stay tuned, world.
Some of the rides were on top of the hotel and some were in the downtown area of Niagara Falls. The above pictures are the views I had from some of the rides! Way too fun. They also had an arcade in the hotel. I went and played Glow Golf, and a whole bunch of other games. We were also going to stop at the 4D movie theatre, but we didn’t have time with all of the cool stuff that we were up to.
As you can tell, I had a pretty good time here. We spent two whole days here. The water park was on top of the hotel. It rocked. It had so much to do; we were always laughing. It also had a kid’s area, and a hot tub, and an indoor and outdoor pool and tons of water slides Some of the water slides I was too afraid to go on. I ended up going on all except one, the yellow one. I met two awesome girls there that encouraged me to go on the slides. But, I plan to be back for the yellow one. And I will.

And, last but not least . . . shopping!
I ❤ SHOPPING! 🙂
Hello everyone, it’s Victoria again, thanking each and every single one of you personally for reading my blogs. Sorry these are so long. The purpose of making three parts is so it wouldn’t drag on forever. Can you imagine if all of this was in one post? Ugh. It just wouldn’t work. My hotel blog (view here) is already up, and my food blog is coming soon, where I talk about the restaurants I’ve been too and the things I’ve bought. Again, thanks so much for reading! xoxo (also, my birthday is coming up on Thursday.) 😉
Love — Victoria Hecnar
Man, I’ve been so busy lately that I completely forgot to write this blog. I had posted on another post that I would have this done like ages ago, but I never got to it. But on another note, I think this is one of the only blog posts that I’ve written that don’t begin with “hey bloggers”, or something along the lines of that nature. Anyway, I’m really excited to write this post. I’ve always wanted to do a blog on somewhere I’ve travelled to, and write certain aspects that I liked and didn’t like. I have a bit of a critic in me—I could write reviews all day long if I wanted to. Without further adieu, I present to you all the first part of my first travel blog: travel and hotels.
Yeah, this is the boring part. *yawn. . . thank you coffee* Sorry. The train is, well . . . it’s the train. You’re going faster than what you feel like, there’s $7 small sandwiches (which are really yummy though, I had the assorted meat with Swiss cheese one.) My train didn’t leave until 1:45 PM, so I didn’t have to get up early like I normally do for travel. So after saying goodbye to my family and Hammie, I boarded the train with my boyfriend Jacob. It was rainy that day but that didn’t get my mood down, I was so excited.
And then our train left nine days later at 8 AM. The good part of that though was McDonald’s breakfast. There’s nothing as tasty as a sausage and egg McMuffin with a hash-brown and apple juice. To me, anyway. Some people are healthy. The train ride back we mostly just slept. There’s not much more to it than that. To order tickets to go on the train to anywhere in Canada, click here.
Yay, hotels! I don’t know why, maybe it’s the hospitality person in me but ever since I can remember I’ve loved hotels. And I really don’t know why. It’s kinda weird, when you think about it. I just love how comfy everything is, and (most) hotels just smell so nice and free breakfasts and the bathrooms are so nice too! Okay, maybe I’m just talking about the fancy hotels. Probably. Still, I love them for some strange reason that even I cannot explain.
So, we divided up the 9 days, 8 nights into 3 places:
We stayed at my boyfriend’s dad’s house for a few nights. Sorry people, there’s no link to get reservations for this place. The apartment building was decent, it had a really nice pool that I forgot to take a picture of. It was pretty deep and there was rarely anyone in it. Except for one day there was a lady and her son that was probably ten. My boyfriend and I just kissed each other (like, a peck) on the lips once and she freaked out at us because apparently her son is “just a kid” and “doesn’t need to see that”. Ah, the people of big city life. I love windows so I took that picture. (Wow I really am starting to sound like a weirdo. Liking hotels, windows, what’s next?)
2.) The Admiral Inn
YAY ADMIRAL! There’s a few other locations around that area, but let me tell you, they’re really crappy. It’s weird because it’s the exact same company, yet some look more like trailer parks. We actually had an inside joke that if anyone found out they were all connected, the people working at the fancy one would deny it. Even on their website, they only have the nice ones listed.
This hotel has only three floors. But it also has a hot tub, pool, sauna, fitness room, a hot breakfast for free, flat screen HDTVs with HDMI hookups, a fancy bathroom, comfy king sized beds, and more. It was awesome to say the least. Most hotels give you cereal and if you’re lucky a bagel for breakfast. But this place gave you everything. From sausages, to bacon, to waffles, pancakes, bagels, fresh fruit and vegetables, cereal, pastries, eggs, and more. Let’s just say that we were in heaven. Breakfast went from 7 AM to 10 AM. The first day Jacob and I actually missed it because we pulled an all-nighter the night before. But can you really blame us? We were playing Banjo-Kazooie on the flat screen TV all night long. Although that was fun, I do wish we caught that one breakfast. We still had many more, though.
- Beds were very comfy and cozy.
- It was in a safe area.
- The facilities they had available were very convenient and provided fun.
- Their breakfast was absolutely amazing and delicious.
- They treat you good there.
- The rooms were up-to-date, as well as the bathrooms with HDTVs.
- The hotel smelled clean and crisp.
- It was classy.
- Relatively cheap. Less than $200/night.
- They give you a later (by an hour) check-out time if you need it.
- Some staff were a little rude. And that’s honestly my only complaint. And the only ones who were a little rude was the night shift staff.
OVERALL RATING? : 8/10
Click here for prices, packages, and to book your stay at the Admiral Inn in Mississauga/Toronto area.
2.) Crowne Plaza Hotel
Now I don’t even know how this is possible, but I think I liked this one even more than Admiral Inn. As you can see, it’s pretty fancy. It was in Niagara Falls, which is an incredible, beautiful, gorgeous town that is all touristy. They have the most amazing stores, restaurants, and attractions you can imagine. There’s several hotels, and we stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. They have everything and more. Except they actually didn’t have a free breakfast, you had to pay for that separately. They had: an indoor water park, a pool/hot tub/sauna area, a fitness room, a Starbucks inside the hotel (aka my dream), comfy beds, right next to the main part of Niagara Falls, a view of the falls from every room, a gorgeous lobby, great service, two extremely fancy restaurants, amusement park rides, an arcade room, a mini movie-theatre, and more. In this hotel. Yeah, you can say that maybe I was a little overwhelmed. It was like an awesome dream.
FUN FACT: This was the hotel that Marilyn Monroe stayed at in June of 1952 when filming her movie, “Niagara.” She stayed in room 801. I stayed on the 8th floor too, in room 822 . . . it would have been cool if I got that room instead.
Also, apparently, Marilyn used to just randomly walk around the hotel in the nude. I wasn’t even born yet though so I can’t say if it’s true or not, sorry.
So while I want to talk about them now, I’ll have to wait to discuss the awesome restaurant and water park. But again, this hotel was off-the-charts fantastic.
- It’s in a fancy area.
- It’s a fancy/classy hotel.
- There’s so much to do, and it’s close to so many shops and attractions.
- Marilyn Monroe stayed here. That’s kinda cool.
- Good service.
- Again, nice smelling. Don’t judge me I’m weird, I know.
- The food? GIVE ME MORE. NOW. PLEASE.
- In walking distance from literally everything and anything in Niagara Falls.
- Check-out time is 11 AM. Pretty early for someone who likes to sleep in like me.
- The rooms were pretty out-of-date.
- The TVs were nice and flat screen, but the only thing they had was pay-per-view. No cable, the HDMI hookup was unable to be used as the screen was locked for just pay-per-view. Kinda dumb. You know what that also means? NO. VIDEO. GAMES. 😥
- The bathrooms were really old.
- No complimentary breakfast.
OVERALL RATING? 8.5/10
Click here to book your stay at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. You’ll love it, I promise. There’s even this cool creepy piano that plays itself in the lobby. Also, the water park is on the roof. It just keeps on getting better and better, doesn’t it?
Wow, this blog took me a whole hour and a half to do. I was estimating an hour. I guess good things take some time, right? (Oh my God, I just wrote “write” instead of “right” then fixed it. I really am a writing addict . . .) I hope you all liked this rather long blog. At least I didn’t do all three parts like originally planned. So if you liked this blog and want to know more about these beautiful cities/towns and what to do in them, keep a lookout for the other two parts (sights and attractions & food and miscellaneous) over the next few days. Thanks for reading!
As for always, love,
Hello bloggers! So I’ve been thinking for a few days now: how am I going to write my Toronto/Niagara Falls blogs? I did and saw so much that it would be hard to put it all into one blog. After all, I’m not a travel blogger. (They travel the world lots then write about all they see/do.) I’m more of a, book/quotes/tips/reviews, etc blogger. And of course I didn’t want to just pile everything into one blog. Whenever I see an extremely long blog, I begin to yawn and immediately close the page. I know how tiring it can be to see a long blog, and overwhelming—sometimes, you just don’t have the time to sit there that long. Because of this, I decided to divide my blog up into three parts: travel and hotels, sights and attractions, and food and miscellaneous. Thank you, and thanks to all of the wonderful Torontonians out there. ❤

(comes out 2014-08-18)
Hello everyone! I am back from my awesome nine day trip to Toronto. But it wasn’t just Toronto—I also went to Mississauga and Niagara Falls, which were more than amazing. Although I am (extremely) sad that I’m back, 😥 I am happy to stir some more blogs up! Here’s what’s on the menu for my blog within the next week:
- Probably a few blogs on my trip to Toronto.
- Life hacks—because the more, the merrier.
- Reviews—movies, books, TV shows, perfumes, clothes, stores, etc.
- And, of course, quotes.
Thanks Toronto For Making My Trip Awesome (and thanks to my boyfriend, Jacob, of course.) 😎
I’m getting pretty good at photography! 😛
See You Soon,
Hey bloggers, I am writing to you from a train. (And it looks like it’s about to rain, soon 😦 !) I won’t be blogging for the next week because I will be in the beautiful city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada! Also known as, one of my favorite cities in Canada to visit. I’m going with my boyfriend Jacob, it’s our first vacation ever together so we’re both pretty excited. 😆 Another two hours or so on the train; it’s around four in total to get to from where I live to Toronto. What’s your favorite thing to do in Toronto? I LOVE the CN Tower (not recommended for those who have a fear of heights), and the aquarium, and Toronto Island, and, of course, all of the shopping centers and downtown Toronto. Write in the comments a few things you love to do in Toronto, and we’ll check them out. ❤
Just a bit longer to go until we’re in this beautiful city!
Hope you’re all enjoying your August so far!

Happy Canada Day and Happy 4th of July! I hope you all had an awesome time this past week. Us North Americans gotta stick together!
A few weeks ago, I went to the annual fireworks show at the Detroit River. They were the best this year out of every year so far! Some of the fireworks were shaped as hearts and smiley faces, which was pretty cool.
I hope you’re all having an awesome summer so far. Sincerely,

Why are the snails always the first ones to die? And why do they die, one after the other? So prior to writing this blog post, I wrote one about my favourite fish, Engelbert, who passed away. There, I mentioned a few new aquatic friends that I got. Snails, one named Milly, and one named Jude. If you read the previous post, you’d know that I had a mother and a daughter snail before. The daughter snail would always ride on the mother’s shell, it was the cutest thing – then, the daughter died, and the mother refused to eat so she eventually died, too. The same thing happened; Milly and Jude were really close (I don’t know if they were relatives). And Milly died several weeks ago, and just a few days ago, Jude died, too. He again, refused to do anything, and ended up dying. This always happens to me! I absolutely love every single one of my pets, and I get really sad when they die.
For fish (sometimes), dogs, cats, and small animals, it can be easy to tell why they passed. Illness, age, etc. For snails, I never know the reason. But, what I do know, is that every single animal has feelings. I’ve known people that think animals are “soulless”, and don’t have any feelings whatsoever. I’ve had pretty much any pet one can have, and spend tons of time with animals. I’ve learned that everything has feelings; even snails. The connections that they can make with one another and the emotional attachment they have to each other is beyond incredible. And no, they were not mates. They were the same gender and never had baby snails. So, there must be some sort of relationship between them, right? They must be able to feel some sort of emotion. It may not be quite like the relationships between humans, but everything definitely feels something. [One of my pet peeves is actually when people step on garden snails just to be cruel….grrr. Probably making a blog on pet peeves, soon. It could be interesting.]
In conclusion, losing your pets is sad, but I always look forward to getting more pets and learning more about animals! They’re awesome. 🙂 Also, sorry for not blogging much lately. Working, online courses and spending time with family/friends/Jacob is really time consuming. My new job is awesome, though; tons of fun! I’m teaching English to 13/14 year olds and am a tutor.
Hope to see ya in the blog-univerise soon,
Victoria Hecnar xoxo ❤
