Put on a happy face

  03/15/09

I just needed to get that last blog off the front page.
And I will pass on sharing my other daunting experience.
Entries like that always make me feel kind of vulnerable.

Anyway,
I asked for topics to type about two entries ago.
So here goes…

# something debatable like abortions or drugs or tattoos
- Okay, I pick tattoos. They don’t bother me. Mark up your skin any way you like.

# how you feel about certain issues on the news
- I don’t watch the news.

# how about the amount of job’s lost in the US or reality television
- I don’t watch much reality television anymore. I have heard of people losing their jobs. But, I don’t know anyone that actually has. Apparently the number of long-term unemployed is 2.9 million as of this February; which makes me very grateful to have my sucky job.

# have any friend issues
- Yes, I do… I really, really do.

# exactly what you do at college, and why everyone always says it’s boring
- People do different things in college… What do I do? I go to class and occasionally do homework. I used to hit up the parties/clubs, but I got tired of that fast. Organizations are out as I want to decrease (not increase) my obligations. I wouldn’t say college is boring. I just think most people are over formal education after being subjected to it for 14 to 15 years straight.

# music blog, fashion blog
- Fashion… You mean Freddy Krueger sweaters, lumber jack shirts, and skinny jeans? Eck! Music… Womanizer!

# knowing the difference between a friend and an acquaintance
- Friends are people you can truly be yourself around, and they come through for you whenever they can. An acquaintance is just someone you know, and don’t mind hanging out with.

# fun facts about yourself
- Fun facts… Um, I like to do 1980s jazzercise.

# something that you wish could happen
- I wish everyone really had a conscience that punished them when they did something wrong. But, what is wrong? I wish I had objective definitions of right and wrong. Oh and, of course, I wish I had a billion dollars.

# things that were interesting to you and not to the average human being
- Purchasing loads of domain names.

# something funny that happened when you were younger
- lol… I am going back to bed now.

 

Hobbs is gone

  03/14/09

3 hours ago…
I put Hobbs in his carrier, rode to the humane society, signed a release, and left him there.

At the shelter,
I mechanically detailed the damage he had done to my home,
Presented my scratched and bitten body for inspection,
And neatly signed my signature.

When I got home,
I cried and called my dad (mom didn’t pick up the phone).
He made me feel a lot better, but I still cry sporadically.

I just feel so guilty and sad,
I got him May 23, 2008 when he was 2 months old.
He has always been a problem child,
But I thought he would straighten out.

The past 10 months have been up, down, up, down.
This last “down” has cost me almost $500.
And I just couldn’t take anymore from a cat that doesn’t allow holding/touching for more than 60 seconds.

I take a little solace in the fact that it’s a no-kill shelter,
And was actually over-crowded with people looking for animals to adopt.

I hate making my blog entries too long.
So, I will blog about my other daunting experience tomorrow.
