So, it's major story time here on Someone Like You. Gather around our internet camp fire and get ya self a cup of hot cocoa.
My roommate and I were walking to lunch the other day and we stumbled across this tiny little creature and had to look twice--it was a baby squirrel. Kent State is known for our squirrels, they're like our unofficial mascot (and should be our actual mascot in my opinion). We had never seen a baby squirrel before and were ohhing and ahhing over it when we noticed something was wrong. It was so tiny and fragile, not to mention shaking like a little leaf. It looked like it was trying to come toward us, but didn't have the strength to do so. We both knew it was really sick, having fell from the tree above so the mother couldn't care for it. We left it there with heavy hearts knowing there was nothing we could do.
So, I'm taking outfit pictures today and I see this really weird guy kinda wandering around in the woods. He starts coming up to me after I've been there awhile and I'm thinking, "Oh no, some creepy guy coming to hit on me." But instead, I was shocked to find that this guy was holding THE BABY SQUIRREL in the palm of his hand! He had rescued it from where my roommate and I saw it and has been taking care of it. He said it wasn't sick, but after he fed it and warmed it up it acted completely normal. He did some research on it and since the squirrel could hardly open its eyes or walk, it's around five weeks old. The kind guy has been feeding it soy milk from a straw every four hours and keeping the little guy in his dorm. I thought it was the sweetest thing ever and I couldn't believe someone had rescued the poor thing after seeing it look so sad. It was SO cute because the little guy was just burying himself into the fleece shirt sleeve of this dude and my heart melted.
I don't know what will happen to the baby squirrel, but it's so comforting to know that there are still kind and caring people out there that would do something like this. Makes me have some more faith in humanity after losing a lot following Miley's VMA performance. Lulz.
Anyways! Just a cute story I thought I'd share with you. It was really chilly here today and I got to wear fall clothes! And drink a warm cup of cafe mocha from Starbucks :)
With much love, Lauren.
