Sunday two of my friends (and Eye Candy” cast mates) Olesya and Nico told me they were picking me up and taking me somewhere special, but they wouldn’t tell me where. I was told to wear old boots that I really didn’t care about and jeans. In my mind, I was thinking, maybe they’re taking me paint balling? It took us about 45 minutes to get there and then we pulled up to a place called The Gentle Barn.
The Gentle Barn is an amazing organization that takes in abused/neglected animals and rehabilitates them, then they bring in troubled kids and teens to share in their healing. The animals learn to love and trust again and they are just amazing. Who knew turkeys could be so cuddly… I stuck both my hands underneath a turkey’s wings and it was so warm and cuddly. I rubbed a pig’s belly (btw, they have really coarse hair) and so much more. It was such an amazing experience! I’m going to post some more pics here, so you can see.
If you love animals, then please watch this video of The Gentle Barn and all the wonderful animals that live there and the people who love them.You can also donate and help them to keep on doing what they do. Their website is: http://www.gentlebarn.org

Van Gogh - Roses, detail
Approximately 1,200 miles off the southeast coast of Africa lies an island nation known as Mauritius that gives off the illusion of an underwater waterfall at the southwestern tip of the island. The visually deceiving impression, created in the water due to the runoff of sand and silt deposits, is especially effective and breathtaking in aerial shots. In fact, the illusion can even be seen on Google Maps.
gotta love Emma Stone.
