Meerkat Madness

Two adorable baby meerkats were recently born at Sydney, Australia’s Taronga Zoo – the first meerkat pups to be born at the zoo in nine years!

Zanzibar and Nairobi are four weeks old, weigh just over 100 grams each and have recently started eating worms. They've also started exploring the zoo's desert-themed enclosure, which now houses five female and four male meerkats.

The pups’ keepers aren’t yet sure whether the babies are male or female – they’ll find out when they are examined by vets at eight weeks old.

Zanzibar and Nairobi's mother was brought in from another Australian zoo to breed with Taronga Zoo's resident male meerkats. Meerkats are native to the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa.

Dear Diary,  (2-20-17) So today was crazy after arguing with the fact that i should write this in a real diary but then remembering that my handwriting is terrible.     Okay look, just call me crazy but I saved the new girl in our class. I hate new girls in school. I was one which means I hate myself a couple years ago. That's..actually surprisingly accurate. Not that I'm a bully or anything whatsoever, but she always is automaticlly popular declared by the populist of popular in out class, Victoria. Or Tori for a brief yet still so disgusting I can smell her name from here period. Okay, I think we might be becoming friends after I saved her. You might be thinking, Audrey, just tell us how you saved her! Shut up, okay! I'm getting to that. Anyways, as Victoria is officially awesome, (inflicted by the awesomeness)  she hangs out with another girl which makes Alexei all mad and the whole thing blows up until I'm in the middle. (face palm) And I did some magic talk and problem solved. NOT! Now she says that I'm her friend and I do something crazy for her. She likes a boy in our class, Eddie. He likes Alexei, Alexei likes him. And you guess what i did. MAGIC! Anyways, now she owes me two favors. And that'll be getting me out of my delehma  right now by giving me stomach medicine. Or nose medicine. Either sounds heavenly.

In my opinion, cutting is not a cry for attention. The person's emotional pain creates some kind of need to feel physical pain, even if this person is not aware of that while doing it. However, on the last couple of years, cutting started to get popular, making some people think that if they cut themselves they will get more attention, which, also in my opinion, is an act of "desperation" and an actual need for attention or friendly advises .   :nerd  :)
