Hi, I'm Steff! I live in Austin. I'm strange. I'm cute. I like cats (cliche tumblr girl alert). And I cherish people regardless of gender or lack thereof. YOU MAY NOW PERUSE MY CRAZED INTERNET RAMBLINGS BWWWAHHHHHHHGGHHHHH
Whenever I think about Steve Irwin, I feel sad.
I didn’t really have any idols growing up, but then I saw The Crocodile Hunter on Animal Planet and I realized that I wanted to be just like Steve Irwin when I grew up.
Now that I think about it, that’s probably what inspired me to want to become a vet. I had already had a passion for animals, but his show made me love them even more.
Man, I vowed to go to the Australia Zoo and I always hoped that I would see one of his shows, watch him wrangle some crocs or something :) And I always wanted to meet his family. God, his wife is amazing. She is one lucky woman :,)
I remember when I heard that he died, I was so upset. He was so amazing and he was truly fearless. The world lost a special man that day :\
While I abandoned my aspirations towards veterinary medicine many years ago, Steve Irwin still has a place in my heart and he will always inspire me.
You know, I think I’ll paint a portrait of him one day and hang it up in my living room, so I’ll never forget his importance to me :,)
