Monterey Bay Aquarium

The aquarium is my meditation space - the cool blues and quiet fish are very calming to me. I've had lots of fish growing up so it's something that's familiar to me and can bring me to my less anxious quiet place. Besides my mental health, it's absolutely beautiful to see the fish and other sea creatures swimming around (and the otters and penguins are always adorable!).

Right now the aquarium is featuring jellyfish and sea horses. The jellyfish are floating works of art, and the sea horses are ridiculous looking. I mean, why did they evolve that way? How did that happen? I like it but I don't understand it. I also didn't take any pictures of sea horses because I was too busy laughing at them. Sorry, folks.

This jellyfish are also ridiculous looking. They look like swimming mushrooms!

The bird sanctuary - always a calm place.

Sleepy bird.

The aquarium inspired me to get a fish of my own. Since I've moved out, I haven't had any pets (all the pets are at my parents house). So on Sunday, I went to a petstore and rescued a Betta fish.
