Day 94’s Topic: Cats.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Lately, part of my life has felt somewhat empty, but empty in the sense that I don’t have something to take care of other than myself.

With this in mind, the idea of me getting a cat in my situation has become more and more intriguing.

It’s starting to become an everyday occurrence I think about having a feline friend again to call my own. Ugh, I really want a kitty or two, but I do worry about the finances. If I were to get a cat, I wouldn’t be cheap about the whole spiel either.

I would want to make sure the cat is thoroughly entertained and is comfortable living at my place. I have two whole floors with a bit of extra room, but I would definitely keep the cat(s) indoors out of fear of something bad happening outside.

Obviously, food is something I have to pay for, along with litter and some other essentials. Not to mention, God forbid, my cat(s) in the near future don’t run into any health problems that would force me to go to the vet.

But otherwise, money aside, I think the companionship of having a cat would far exceed any dollar amount I could ever imagine in my current situation. Heck, there have been plenty of days I felt like having a cat to pet would have made my ordeals seem less daunting, putting my mind at ease. Continue reading

Everyday NhanSense – Day 81

Day 81’s Topic: Cats.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
As I browse through more pictures of my cats saved on file, the more apparent my true feelings come to the surface. Simply put, I miss my two babies a lot. Tux and Kuro meant a lot to me. They still do. I raised them since they were wee kittens, bonded with them on a personal level between pet and pet owner, which makes some days over here in this new town feel certainly lonely.

Magically, I wish I could just warp the two over here. But it wouldn’t be fair to the family I once lived with, as they are their cats as well. Sure, they didn’t love these two cats as much as me, but I was moving into a precarious and uncertain situation. The family was kicking me out of their home, after all, so I had to make the hard decision of leaving Tux and Kuro behind as a result.

I wasn’t sure if I could take care of my living situation, let alone adequately care for the two cats the way I would want them to be treated. I didn’t know where I was going to live, if I could get a job that paid me enough to afford rent, food and all the other expenses.

Of course, now that the ship has stabilized, I could probably take care of Tux and Kuro just fine. However, it’s not like I can just waltz into the family’s house and demand to have the two cats to take back here. Maybe in time, I will make an effort at formally adopting the two cats, but that family and I haven’t contacted one another for months.

In this regard, things are awkward between us. I have assumed Tux and Kuro have been just fine without me, so I have to trust that they are being loved. That’s all that really matters to me in this regard, honestly. The two cats were quite happy critters before I got kicked out, so I have prayed they have been still content with their lives.

It’s hard at times, but it’s all I can really do at the moment, aside from the alternative …

I could get another cat or two. Completely new ones to raise and love from the start again.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 79

Day 79’s Topic: Patience.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I am by all means a patient person, but there are days I guess I lose this virtue when I feel things aren’t moving as fast as I would like.

This is why this particular thing at the store stood out to me.

It wasn’t expensive or anything, but I do like having “reminders” laid out for me throughout my desk to keep me in check. After all, life is all about realizing that certain things just develop after a duration, and for some people it takes longer than others for it to materialize.

For instance, many years ago, the only thing I kept telling myself that I wanted more than anything else was just this – independence.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 58

Day 58’s Topic: Being weary.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I have felt a lot more tired than usual. Being weary isn’t pleasant, but I guess it’s to be expected. Perhaps I have overworked myself a bit too much. It’s part of my natural work ethic.

I don’t like that feeling of being lazy when I can just be productive. In my mind, not moving at work isn’t work, so I don’t like taking breaks. I keep going and going, barely slowing down if I can help it.

But at the same time, I think I am hurting myself, at least somewhat. Gradually, I am probably overexerting my mind and body. My normal “warning” sign is I get bloody noses after work when I have really pushed myself for a given day.

And let’s just say I’ve been getting a few bloody noses more than I would like. Once in a while, sure, but a few back-to-back instances? Not good.

Not good at all.

But that’s the slight bind I am in. I guess technically speaking I should ease up, but I don’t want to. I can’t just request some time off because I need to work, as I do need to make sure I keep income coming in to get back on my feet.

In other words, I can’t afford not to work. But that’s all right. Most people have to tough it out when they are hurting a bit. I don’t mind biting down on the bullet when I need to, even if my body aches or feels a little too sore on certain days.

Day 19’s Topic: Cats.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
I miss my two kitties … Tux and Kuro. Like, you don’t even know. It was an unfortunate consequence of my move over to this new town I am living in now – I had to leave my two babies behind.

As much as I would have liked to bring my two cats with me, I had to make a tough decision about whether I would risk dragging them into unknown territory and if I could practically afford to keep taking care of them.

Ultimately, I made the right move, but it’s still a crappy choice to me nonetheless. In a perfect world, I could have taken my two kitties with me. But alas, life isn’t always fair in this regard.

But again, people don’t know how much I love these two ever-so-cuddly furballs. I was with them the since day one when they were brought home as tiny, adorable and puffy balls of joy who mewed at everything, as they were just always so curious about the world.

Daily NhanSense – Day 7

Day 7’s Topic: Illness.


No matter how healthy you are, one is bound to get sick at some point.

I just spent the day lying in bed, but only after literally spending the entire previous night being unable to sleep due to severe pain.

Let’s just say trying to sleep holding still, while cradling what feels like a perpetual fireball in your stomach from going off because turning to your side makes it intensify, became quite the nighttime torture.

I am certainly glad that particular storm has passed, though I am definitely going to swear off a certain breakfast joint chain (I am not naming names) for life for giving me severe food poisoning.
