Kitty

Kitty, my precious angel, is now in Cat Heaven. My heart is absolutely crushed… she was the sweetest cat ever. I have woken up in tears the past few days after realizing Kitty wasn’t in my bed.

I will say, however, that I am very grateful for how it happened. She’d been sick (renal failure), but she never suffered until the very, very end. Scott and I were both there to say goodbye and cry on each other.

Life is transient.

I got a job today. It's perfect - part time, but pays really well and will allow me time to pursue the shit I really want to do. It's also great experience in an important tech-related field.

But I've felt on edge all day. Like I'm even more nervous about everything now. I don't know. Why can't I just relax? Maybe it is just change that scares me. I need to learn to accept things as they come instead of being constantly stuck in the past or future.

I suppose I'm also really on edge right now because there's something up with Kitty. I have a vet appointment tomorrow but I keep trying to e-diagnose her and I'm making myself a little crazy.

In conclusion, I need to chillax.

Hey guys! I made this hoop video for a contest. Check it out.

It would be greatly appreciated if you clicked through to the Youtube page and like/thumbs-up the video there. They said they'd consider Youtube likes when judging, so hopefully you can help me out a bit :)

but I gotta remember that life is beautiful

Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better
I am completely healthy
I am bursting with talent and creativity
I give and receive love everywhere I go
I deserve the best, and I accept it now


(I think this affirmations stuff works, you guys!)

I guess things are pretty good lately... :)

Scott and I had a great Thanksgiving, just the two of us! I cooked pulled pork (fuck turkey), roasted garlic mash, green bean casserole, deviled eggs and pumpkin pie. Way too much food for two people, which is perfect because I'm never cooking again (er, until next week). Drank fuckloads of cider (Woodchuck winter edition), watched football, very good times.

My parents and several friends are coming to visit throughout December. I am very excited to show them the city and all the stuff we've found in it! The amount of good food here, even limited to those in close walking distance from my apartment, is ridiculous. I think Scott and I are going to try a well-reviewed sushi buffet in Manhattan sometime next week. Unfff can't wait.

Next weekend I'm going to Hoop Path: Open Air, which is a 3-day hoop workshop! The intention of the Open Air theme is "to dissolve into movement meditation, reveal the traps of the ego and allow an investigation into the disabling emotion of insecurity". Can't wait.




More later... I should write more.

I am bad at writing about my life

but

I fire hooped last night! I was too afraid of the fire to try anything crazy, but I'm really glad I finally got a chance. Here is a video, complete with drunken commentary.



Here is another video from last night, because why not.




So anyway, I had a lot of fun this weekend. Floated down a river, had a great party, fireworks, fire hoops, cooked good food. On the downside, I've been doing no work and I'm poor... working from home is not so glamorous, you see.

I am moving out of my apartment soon, and it seems I have too many things. First world problems, I'm full of them.
