My first post!

I have recently been tagged with heaps of thing recently so I am trying to catch up but I thought I would just do this one today! Jacintah from Live more now tagged me to repost my first ever post! THis is what you are meant to do..

What I want you to do is repost your very first blog post. I want to see how things are different now, if you write differently, if you write about the same topic, if you did a “hi this is why I’m blogging” sort of post or if you just got straight into it.

Then I want you to tag five people to do the same.

So here goes!

"Why limpets and penguins?" posted on 10th November 2009

Limpets are what I am studying. What are they? They are kind of like flattened snails which live down on the rocks at the beach. Most people think they don't move but they do...just very slowly. I personally think they are pretty cool. When something attacks them they clamp down and to cool down they mushroom up - lifting their shell off the ground. As this is my honours year I predict I am going to get pretty obssessed with them. Even start having crazy dreams!

Penguins? Well apart from the fact that they are pretty cute - especially baby emperer penguins - my boyfriend is shortly to depart for Antartica for a year - so they represent him. Just need to convince him to start his own blog. So expect to see lots of pictures of them :)

So this is going to be the year of Limpets and Penguins for me.

I don't think I write differently. After finishing my honours I think I am slightly more obsessed with limpets! I am even going to a world congress on molluscs in July! (yay...but will post more about that another time!) And I did have crazy dreams about them.

Anyway..five people...most of the people who follow me seem to have done this so hopefully no overlaps

Mrs P. from a study in contradictions
Nichol from Possible Thunderstorms (my boyfriends blog!)
Melissa from Sugar Coat It
Miss Carly from everyone want this
The Fat Chick

I have heaps of exciting purchases to show everyone so hopefully will get time to do that tomorrow...but tomorrow I am having a photoshoot! Yay!!!
