OOTD: Turtle shirt, we're so happy together!
Dress: Indian Imports (local)
Shirt: Vendor fair in Oregon
I bought this tank top during my trip to Oregon back in late 2012. It's one of the few souvenirs I picked up, and I've hardly worn it because the racer back style is awfully revealing. Little did I know at the time that it would look wonderful when layered over dresses and other shirts, which brings me to present day, when I eventually figured that out.

While in Oregon, I had so much free time at my disposal that I randomly chose to study turtles and tortoises. Before that point, I only knew vaguely what the differences were, but after reading some information about them I found out just how different they really are.
For example, a turtle has a flat and thinner shell for aide in its water-dwelling lifestyle, while a tortoise has a large, thick, dome-shaped shell to help protect itself against possible land predators. Tortoises also live, on average, much longer than a turtle. 150 years is considered to be a very old age for a tortoise.

As for me, I am fine at keeping my love for turtles and tortoises at the t-shirt bearing level. I fantasized about having one as a pet for a brief time, but I know it wouldn't be a right fit in the long run. I'm still having cat withdrawal symptoms that need to be taken care of first and foremost.
