An animal lovers day…


I know a lot of you own pets, or if you don’t own pets I don’t think I’ve known anyone who reads my site regularly to absolutely hate animals. And honestly, how could you? They’re so darn cute!

Either way, I had an absolutely horrible dream the other night that all of a sudden we were letting my cat go outside (which we never do, she’s 150% indoors only), and I was yelling at my parents because we just never let her out. Apparently, my Dad had “video proof” that the cat loved it outside, so my Mom agreed. I was so pissed, so I went outside to have a cigarette and Socks an after me, out the door, and into the street (in my dream we lived on a main road). She dodged one car, but a white truck came and hit her. I started screaming and the driver stopped while I was flagging him down screaming at him and freaking out. THEN I WOKE UP.

It was so vivid, and I literally could not get back to sleep. The realities of my life calmed me a bit. 1) My Dad has no idea how to work a video camera, 2) We never let Socks out, 3) We don’t live on a main road. I grabbed Socks and sat with her for a while. It was so upsetting. I love animals in general, but I especially love my cat. Although I knew something still wasn’t right, so the day trudges on…

At Keith’s job, there is a host of cats which live in the woods. A woman comes to feed them once a week and buys little homes for them to live in. I went to bring him some smokes for work and we were standing out back. There was a guy driving an ATV through the wooded area and I just bugged and yelled, “Get the fuck out of there! You hurt a cat and I’ll kill you.” Needless to say, there was no more ATV after I did that. Keith was not happy about me yelling like that near his job, but oh well.

AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF…we get to Keith’s house at night, and a tiny cat (new to the neighborhood), was limping, his foot looked destroyed, and the hair on his back was up on end. He laid on Keith’s porch and I tried to get him to come to me so I could see what was wrong/try to help/call someone and he limped away. Leaving me feeling like I caused the cat more pain, and thinking he probably went to die alone somewhere. He even had a collar on.

Anyone who loves animals as much as I do, I’m sure would find it heartbreaking. People should keep their small animals, cats included, inside. I’m sorry but some of them are too small and to be out. =

Total Beauty & more?

Tashina blogged about Total Beauty.com, and I’m hooked. You can win prizes, but I’ve just been having fun reviewing and looking up new products. It’s a really fun site, and has some great beauty tips, product reviews, and blogs too!

I saw the most amazing movie today on Lifetime. It was called Engaged to Kill. Now, I know some people think Lifetime is a pile of television poo, but I absolutely love this channel. This movie kept me awake and riveted and that was with a warm fuzzy cat and a quilt on top of me. For some reason rainy days + a cold + lifetime + my cat = happiness. Add in some Wavy Lays and I’m good to go. I’ve been focusing on getting well and resting so I can have some fun tomorrow at the party tomorrow.

Remind me to bring my camera since I often fail at that. <333 Have a great weekend everybody!

Egg Mask

I totally did an Egg White Mask about 2 hours ago and my skin feels like a baby’s butt, haha. My friend Kathleen told me to try it out, so we did it after class today. It felt like I had Botox shots in my face when I was waiting for it to dry, and then I washed it off and washed my face with my cleanser. My face still feels tingly and clean. My face still burns a little bit, haha. I really liked how it felt, but I don’t think it’s something I’d do every day. Has anyone else tried this?

Tomorrow night is my last class of the week, and then Thursday I’m off to NYC, and Christine’s 21st weekend commences. Let the chaos begin!

Thanks Tashina!!

Tashina has inspired me to write a little something that’s been on my mind and oddly enough I did an impromptu speech on for my Communication class. =] Diets, being overweight, and quick fixes.

As you all know from my health/fitness section of my website I’ve been losing weight for over a year now. For those of you who want to lose weight, or are working on it presently, it’s a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. I honestly think Tashina said it best in her blog, so I suggest you read it.

It breaks my heart to see so many girls starving themselves, purging food, doing insane fasts and colon cleanses as well as abusing laxatives. I was one of those girls who once fell for fad diets, but I’ve learned from my mistakes.

Finding your happy, healthy weight is so much more than the number on the scale. I weight 132 pounds and wear a size 6 in jeans, and I fully believe this is the weight I was meant to maintain (give or take 5 pounds). I look great, I feel amazing, and I’ve opened a window of so many healthy food options and choices. I’m constantly learning more tips and tricks every day and I wanted to take the time to tell all of you guys: if you’re trying to lose weight, working on it, or thinking negatively about your body and you feel alone, I want you to know that you can e-mail or I.M me any time. I know first hand what it’s like to feel that way, but if you work through the difficult challenges you can come out on top and feeling great.

If you need tips check out Tashina‘s website because she inspired me to write this as well as has some amazing recipes!
