If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that earlier this month I “committed” myself to doing the 30 Day Writing Challenge, in conjunction with NaNoWriMo. And as you can see, I’ve been failing miserably. While I HAVE been posting daily (mostly backdated posts about stuff I’ve been doing and what not) , they’re not following the challenge prompts at all. I suppose that’s better than nothing. :’D
Day 12’s prompt was supposed to be about “Five Blessings In Life”.
I have a lot to be thankful for. A loving, if somewhat dysfunctional family (show me a perfect one!), a roof over my head, a job that gives me some pretty sweet perks, a doting boyfriend , and despite not being able to own a house, the financial ability to live in relative comfort.
The only thing missing in my life right now is a pet. As anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m absolutely OBSESSED with cats. I want one so bad. Just looking at videos of cute cats after a stressful day at work calms me. Friends who have cats have to tear me away from their pets whenever I visit because I’d be so busy trying to get them to sit on my lap (the cat, not the friend). I can’t pass by a stray on the street without miao-ing at it. And I’m constantly shoving pictures of cute cats in people’s faces, the same way mothers show their baby pictures to people.
The problem is, I still live with my parents and my mom HATES cats. She half-jokes (actually I think she means this in full seriousness) that the day I can have a cat in the house is when she dies. lol. She is more open to the idea of a dog, but we’ve had bad experiences with previous pet dogs so I don’t want to go there again. While I like dogs, I can’t say I would like them as pets because they’re just so excitable. It’s like having an extrovert in the house, God forbid.
But then again, I don’t think I would mind having a Samoyed, like Maya the Polar Bear. Just look at how sweet she is:
Also sums up my feelings about coming in to work today.

I laughed out loud because I’m the same way with challenges. I start out strong and then fall behind and my “every day” turns into every three days or every month. But its the thought that counts right? Hey, you’re still doing the work!
I’m also obsessed with cats. I have one (who I coincidentally dress in sports jerseys and such) and an adopted outdoor stray who lives in my garage. Maybe you can feed a stray who comes every night outside so you don’t have to piss off your mom! Also, too funny, I’m def a cat person but LOVE Samoyeds! That or Welsh Corgis, ha!
