OK I feel inspired to post more in my blog. I have been ignoring it for so long and my test today sucked so much that I decided I need to take my mind off of school for a while now! :D
So yes, Sean and I went to Florida on March 9th this month and we got to stay until the 20th. I am sad to be back in St. Louis but I guess I can't stay in Florida forever! (Although I did apply for a job there!)
I hope you guys like the photos. I know it's not gyaru or lolita or mori girl or even cosmetic/beauty related but hey, travel is fun! I will try to post the rest of my photos and maybe a few from the LIGHTS concert soon too. :D

For those who didn't know, Kennedy Space Center is actually on a nature preserve! We saw lots of alligators like this one and even bald eagles! It was cool!
These are the TALLEST DOORS in the WORLD! This is the building that houses the space shuttle before launch!!
This is the main engine of the space shuttle. It's SO BIG! (But wait till you see the Saturn V rocket!)
We took the tour bus to the Saturn V center. After we entered the doors, we saw a brief movie about the 1960s in the USA and the space race with Russia!!
A simulation of the command center the way it was for Apollo 11! You can read more about Apollo 11 here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_11
Saturn V rocket's exhaust nozzles! This thing is HUUUUUGE. My mind was blown! O_O;
My BF Sean, looking adorable as always. ;)
The Columbia Capsule from which the Apollo 11 crew returned to earth in!
How cool is that? This is a great picture I found on wiki too. ;) Gotta love the 60s!
Retro-y looking space suit, so weird!! O_O;
OK I saw this in the gift shop and I had to photograph it. ;)
They had an exhibit about getting students to study math, science, and engineering to join NASA. Shame, though, because of all of the recent budget cuts to the space program and the retiring of the shuttle. :( But I thought these posters were cool! I love the artwork. *__*;
This is a model of the newest Mars rover called Curiosity! It was launched November, 26th, 2011! (Right around Thanksgiving!) It's currently in transit to Mars!! You can track the progress of Curiosity here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/msl/news/WhereIsCuriosity.html
It is a part of the Mars Science Laboratory Program.
This is an important mission because the rover will be able to take samples for analysis to see if Mars could have supported life in the past!! Also it's important to help plan for a manned mission to Mars in the future. :)
Here is a picture of me standing in front of a rocket in their rocket garden! Look how tiny I am in comparison... @___@;;
And that's all for now! Hope you liked it and sorry for all of my incessant space ramblings! ;)
