I couldn’t see the meteor shower at its peak because it was raining all week but I was able to catch it around 1 a.m. yesterday.  I definitely saw at least four in the hour I stayed out, thought that’s really low-balling it since were many instances where I thought I saw something but it was so thin and quick that I couldn’t be sure whether I imagined it because I didn’t want to go home empty handed, or if I really did see it.  There were a few incidents too where stars were randomly blinking out, but thinking back, it was probably because there were still quite a bit of rain clouds left over.  The fact that I was watching from my backyard with my neighbour’s bright florescent kitchen light shining across the yard didn’t really help either.  I think he keeps the light on and his kitchen drapes opened for his cat, who, by the way, kept staring at me; he’s probably not use to strange people just standing there, ruining his scenery for so long, haha.

The first shooting star that I undoubtedly saw was so bright, it caught me completely by surprised, especially since I saw it from the corner of my eye when I turned my head to answer someone.  I whipped my head back quickly enough to catch the tail.  It was like a fireball streaking across the sky; it was so amazing.  I can’t believe the Perseids Showers happens annually and this is the first time I’ve read or heard about it.  We couldn’t see it last year because of the Super Moon but what about all the previous years?  Did people not care or know about it back then?  Have I been deceived by movies all these years in thinking that they’re such rare occurrences when they’re actually quite common?  We have five more meteor showers to look forward to this year:

I have no idea if those are as visible or accessible as the Perseids though; I didn’t need a telescope or anything on Friday.

Year of the Snake ~~~

I found a list of New Years greetings on tumblr that I thought I’d share because I always say the same two or three and they start sounding very repetitive after greeting several people in a row.  I thought maybe some of you might want a little variation as well, haha.
