Our Anxious Kitten Update

Life

A while back I posted about our cat, Yuki, who is extremely anxious. It was an undertaking trying to help her out and make the space more comfortable for her. She was peeing in tubs, peeing on rugs, peeing on the floor near the front door, and basically going full tilt crazy, running all around the house, panting, and was always on edge. If you shifted even a bit on the…

So Your Cat is More Anxious Than You

Life

Our little kitten turned one back in March and we have already treated her for an infection and a UTI as well. Not to mention, she seems more anxious than your average cat, so since I've read a number of books on cat personality and behavior, I thought I'd take some time to talk about anxiety in cats and what you can do for them if you have an anxious…

Being a new Cat Mom

Life

There is so much that goes into owning a pet, and being a new cat mom after so long really brings back memories! When I first got Marble, my first ever true love, I was turning 5 years old, so I didn't really know much about the logistics of taking care of a kitten. Now, being 24 and a half years old, with a new kitten, there has been a…

From the Archives: Student to Student

Life

Since graduation is coming up for high schoolers and all, I thought I'd revisit an older post of mine called Student to Student, update it a bit with some newer images and expand on some of the points I was trying to make back then, while I was still a student. Once upon a time I was a high school student that was told I wouldn't get into the University…

Social Media One Month Challenge!

Blogging

Last month I made a secret challenge for myself to work on growing all my social media to specific goal numbers by my birthday. For the most part, I did pretty well, but I slacked off on a few and focused too hard on others! Well, focused too hard isn't really a bad thing, because I blew some of my numbers out of the water!!  What was my following when…

Gaining Balance

Life

A lot has changed recently, with me getting a new job, and a sorts of new circumstances have popped up in my life recently. It can be a bit overwhelming and stressful trying to adapt to everything, but it's still really exciting too. Since I didn't get the post that I had pre-planned to post today up, instead I thought I'd write about how to try and find balance when…

Introverted Bookworm

Life

After reading the March Noveltea Book Club pick, Quiet by Susan Cain, I got to thinking about my life as an introvert and where I fall on the scale. I'll start first with how I was as a kid. I was forever curious, I wanted to see everything and apparently I spent so much time looking around, enthralled by my surroundings, that it was hard to get me to eat…

The Advice I Never Gave

Life

Once upon a time I was unknowingly/forcibly set up to give someone advice, since they were having issues in school. Thankfully to me, they never called to get this advice, but I was stressing over what to even tell them in the first place. The situation was dealing with toxic friends in school and I didn't know how to give advice in a way that didn't seem too over the…

Five Ways to be a Pro Spring Cleaner

Life

Now, I don't claim to be a pro home-keeper/cleaner. I hate vacuuming and have delegated all vacuuming tasks to Alex, but we still keep our place clean! I'm probably the one who has to sort through all my hoards each year and dispose of things/organize and what not. Alex didn't bring too much, except for musical instruments, into the condo...while I on the other hand have been hoarding stuff in…
