Blarggggggggg

This is Meg <3
Sorry for not posting for such a long time; I think time just gets away from me, and I forget how long it's been. Lots of things have happened in the last month and a half. But I will talk about the following: 1) my job, 2) my school stuff, and 3) my food stuff.

My job. I started working five weeks ago, and it feels like FOREVER. Don't get me wrong, I love kids. But sometimes, it is just extremely exhausting and I can get burnt out quickly. This is why I don't want to work with kids full-time or for my real job. I can't handle them except for in small doses, and 30 hours/week is waaay more than small doses. I only have four weeks left, but I really wish it were less than that. I will be really excited to stop working and start school.

School stuff. I leave for St. Louis on August 17th, and it can't come fast enough. I registered for classes a few weeks ago, which was so exciting! I am taking five classes, which is apparently average, but I think it will be quite challenging. They are: Human Behavior, Research Methods, Social Justice and Human Diversity, Social Welfare Policies and Services, and Social Work Practice with Individuals/Families/Groups. I have taken classes in human behavior and research methods before, so my hope is that I can breeze through those and focus on the other three. Changing the subject slightly, my housemate moved into our apartment a few weeks ago, and it looks amazing! It is sooo much bigger than I expected, and everything looks brand new. I can't wait to move in :)

Food stuff. Sucks. Still at my highest weight ever, higher than last month. Hate. Don't know what to do.

We interrupt this blog post to bring you some sad news. Remember Meg, my cat who was sick last month? We had to put her to sleep. She had some sort of cancer, and it was growing very rapidly, and she was suffering. There was no treatment available and no money for treatment anyway, so we had to do it. I am really sad that she's gone, and I miss her tons, but I'm glad that she is not suffering anymore. I petted her and held her as she died, and I hope she knows that I loved her.

I guess that's about it. I love you guys, and I will try to keep you more updated. <3
Now look at this video of my cat Ginny (Meg's sister).

  1. Oh no! Meggeh! *Cries and hugs you* Meggy was like a floofier, more lionish, less-tortie version of Dralion. You made a hard decision, but it was a humane one. You stayed with her as she went to sleep, she knew you loved her.

    Kids have FAR too much energy. It's practically obscene. It takes a very special kind of person to be able to handle them, even in small doses!

    Wow, that sounds INTENSE. Holy carp. I hope your predictions prove true!

    Deep breath. Relax. After being at a low weight for a long time your body overreacts a bit and overshoots where is should be, in self-defence. If you keep doing your healthy things it should unknot it's knickers and go to were it should be. ("Homoeostasis" AKA the "Set Point")

    I'd just like to make it known that YouTube is mean and won't let me like Ginny's video more than once. How rude!

    I'd also like to make it known that I think you're totally fucking awesome and I love you to bits *Huggles you*

  2. Aww poor kitty ): I don't think I could handle holding my cat if I had to put him down, I'd cry all over the place. It's good she's not in pain, though.
    Kids are so exhausting, if I babysit for more than six hours I feel about ready to fall over! Four weeks isn't that long, you've made it this far!
    I'm glad you're back, I've missed your posts!

  3. ASDFGHJKDFGKJ GINNY IS ADORABLE! *Favourites video*
    She's like Dralions bigger, browner more liony older sister XD

    I'm starting to understand more of why Mum is the way she is and why she did what she did. It doesn't excuse any of what she did to us, but I have to forgive her even if I can't forgive her actions. Ironically that is a concept I learned from working with my Angel cards.

    The first time I ever picked them up I pulled Guardian Angel, I started crying lol. (Pagan who believes in angelic-type beings. Go figure. Paradox is amusing)

    It always surprises me when people do good things. I'm so used to people placing their own comfort or simple expediency or profit over doing what is right. Lol, I'm a misanthropic bitch so it doesn't take much to surprise me, though! After a shit day at work I go to IMMT to try to counteract the flood of horrible customers. Why on earth do so many people leave their brains and manners at home when they go shopping? It's not smart to insult the person who handles your food. . .

    I hope you're having a good day. Love you so very much <3

  4. P.S.
    Lol, Dralion might have some Maine Coon in her somewhere, but she doesn't chirp. Maine Coons are amazing, I hope I can be slave to one someday!

    Things are plodding along. I'm knitting my first moebius, I feel like I'm breaking physics! HOW DOES THIS EVEN WORK?? Math is crazy.

    Love you heaps <3
