Attending concerts is one of my favorite forms of recreation. I enjoy listening to all types of music: classical, jazz, and rock. Unfortunately, this can be an expensive hobby. But by buying my tickets the day of the show, I can sometimes save money because the tickets are often sold at half price. Even at half price I can't always afford to go. Working as a clerk in a music store is not exactly a high-paying job. Once I finish my degree, obtaining a more lucrative job will be much easier. But it is hard to work during the day and attend classes at night. I am always busy running from one place to the next, with little time in between to rest and relax. I have also had difficulty sleeping at night recently. Perhaps I need to take a vacation. The only problem with this idea is finding the time to do so.

Some animals are cute, but not mole rats. They have huge teeth, funny little eyes, noses like pigs', and pink, hairless skin. They also steal food from farmers. Scientists find them fascinating to study, however, because of their unusual bodies, brains, and social lives.
Mole rats live in Africa, Southeast Asia, and South America, and use their big teeth to dig networks of tunnels under the ground. They have large and complex societies similar to those of ants and bees. For instance, in a group of up to 300 rats, there is one queen. She mates with only one to three males, and prevents other females from having babies, though it is not known for sure how she does this.
The mole rat has other unusual habits. In one species, some mole rats do a lot of work, while others do nothing. Scientists observed a group and found that 65 percent of them did 95 percent of the digging and finding of food. The rest were lazy individuals who were fatter than the workers. Yet the workers did not seem to mind.
Most mammals use their brain power to see, smell, or hear. But mole rats use most of their brain power to get information from their teeth. They cannot see, and their teeth help them to feel, dig, and sense their surroundings. Mole rats eat root vegetables such as carrots, which is why farmers do not like them.
