Sampson and I at Noah's Landing
I am a freshman in the zoology department at NC State University My main interest is in wildlife conservation with a concentration in endangered species. My favorite thing to do outside of school is horseback riding. I have been riding since I was five years old. I also enjoy reading novels and manga. The picture is of Sampson and I while I was volunteering at "Noah's Landing" a non-profit nature center. If you would like to chat please feel free to send me an e-mail

Noah's LandingAn African Serval

Noah's Landing is a non-profit nature center in Coats, North Carolina. I have been volunteering there once a month for the past couple of months and I hope to continue working there while here at NCSU. Noah's Landing provides a unique chance to get up close and personal with wildlife. While working there I have had the chance to interact with porcupines, african servals, a kinkajou, and even timber wolves. I would suggest this experience to anyone who wishes to have a career working with animals.

    The following is a list of some of the animals that you can find at Noah's Landing:
  1. Zebra
  2. Bengal Cats
  3. African Servals
  4. Timber Wolves
  5. Emu
  6. Ball Pythons
  7. Ring Tailed Lemurs
  8. Wild Spanish Horse
  9. Two-toed sloth
  10. African Crested Porcupines
Grant's Zebra A miniature zebu cow.

Anyone who likes a good laugh will enjoy this show. From meeting new friends to learning the strange customs like picking up a dropped knife to accept a duel poor Yuuri takes viewers on a roller coaster ride of laughs.
Soubi and Ritsuka
Loveless centers around the life of you Ritsuka who loses his memory after the traumatic death of his older brother. After meeting his older brother's friend Soubi, Ritsuka is thrown into a fantasy world of fighting where pairs of duelers battle against each other using "word spells". As Ritsuka spends time with Soubi, he struggles to find himself as well as uncover the mystery of his brother's death. The most striking aspect of this anime is the fantastic art as well as the imagery and symbolism present throughout the series.
