|How I spent my Saturday

Saying that yesterday was a big day is an understatement. I usually don't write a "classic" journal entry(which is composed mainly of: I got up, then I did this, then went to this place,etc. Pretty boring, huh?), but yesterday was so busy that it is worth writing about.
My day started out with my volunteering at the wildlife center. It's crazy this time of year with all the baby animals(mostly birds), so we had a lot to do. It was a lot of fun, though, and the highlight was when I got to see how the baby birds and opossums had grown since the last time I had seen them. Only two nestlings were no longer there(they were siblings, one with a birth defect, so that one didn't survive and the poor little bird that was left died of loneliness). I was pretty upset when I heard this, but was still glad that all the rest were thriving.
After three hours of volunteer work, my mom picked me up and took me home. I then went to Gilroy with my dad for about six hours, most of which we spent walking around stores.
When I came home again my friend Catalina called, asking if I wanted to see X-Men 2 that night. I said that was a great idea, so we went to Platinum Theatres to see it. I thought it would be pretty bad compared to the first movie since it was a sequel, but it was actually almost as good as the first one, in my opinion. After that, me and my mother talked with Catalina until her mother arrived. I really enjoy talking to her, even more than most of my other friends because our personalities are so similar.
By the time I got home it was 10:30, and we then watched Making Mr. Right, which I hadn't remembered seeing in the past, although I had. I'll just say that I prefer the movie in my last paragraph much better than the one in this one, although this one was amusing. I finally went to bed around 1:00, which is later than I've stayed up in a very long time.
So, this was my day yesterday. It was great because I was never once bored(boredom, besides helplessness, is my #1 fear)and consequently I didn't have time to be depressed or worry about the environment or even my life. That's the way I'd like my life to be all the time.
I'm sorry this entry was more boring than my other ones, but it was an important day and I felt I should write a traditional, or boring, entry for once.
