So my cat Cocoa is 15 years old...she'll be 16 next May. Last week we were on vacation to Gatlinburg, TN and didn't see her for a week...but we did have someone come to take care of her every day. When we came back we noticed she had this thing on her rear end and was acting funny so we took her to the vet the next day.

My mom and I cried all day in fear that something was truly wrong with her and we'd have to put her to sleep. But it turned out this thing was an abscess and they did bloodwork and xrays, it turns out she's a healthy cat but her abscess was infected to the point that the tissue around it was actually rotting...eww. So they did surgery and the vet drained it out and cleaned it up. $600 later, we have a healthy cat...BUT now she has a big gash where her stitches are and has to wear a cone around her head for 3 weeks. Antibiotics and pain medication twice a day. It sucks, but I'm so happy she's okay. She's so worth it and my mom agrees.

I've been sleeping downstairs with her to keep an eye on her. Today is her second day home and she's already much better than she was the first day back. I've had her since I was a little girl and I'm not ready to let her go yet. <3 I took a pic of her with her cone that I want to include with this entry. I'll edit it in at some point.

Writer's Block: Bite Me

From Dr. Polidori's Lord Ruthven to Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen, the annals of vampire lore are filled with attractive, charming bloodsuckers. Which one would you most want to be bitten by?
Oh gross, Edward Cullen is not attractive OR alluring. He's just a big, obsessive creeper failure of a vampire. Let's consider some "real" vampires.

In terms of getting bitten to be killed, I wouldn't want to be bitten at all of course. In terms of being turned into a vampire, I would want William the Bloody AKA Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to be my sire. I like Angel better in terms of who I like better with Buffy, but Angelus is effing scary and I would be afraid that he'd actually kill me, lol.

P.S. I love the mood thing I'm using right now for lazy. <333

Writer's Block: All-Nighter

When was the last time you stayed up all night? What were you doing?
Unlike most summers, I haven't been pulling all-nighters as much lately...I usually get to bed around 2 AM. The last time I stayed up all night was in May because I wasn't tired and couldn't get to sleep. I stayed up texting my online bff Kaytee cuz she was leaving for NJ at 5:30 am and was just going to stay up til then so she could sleep in the car so I stayed up to talk to her til she went to sleep in the car. I was so awake that I was up til 7:30. Around 6:30 I took my dog on a walk. The early morning was actually very peaceful and therapeutic.

My face is killing meeee.

Okay, so around 5-ish I got a filling in an upper molar...I was numbed and everything. But ever since the novacaine feeling went away, I have been so sore...both of my cheeks are killing me. I took 2 Ibuprofen like 10 minutes ago but no results yet.  I've had fillings before (braces really fucked my teeth up when it comes to fillings) but I have never been this sore. Wtf is going on? Pain pain, go away...

On the upside, I just wrote another entry. It's short, but it's an entry. That means I get to use my Buffy moods again. sweeeeeeeet.

And after this, I'm going to bed. So goodnight. = ]

Respect...just a little bit?

Okay. So as many of you know (if anyone is actually reading this), Michael Jackson died today. I was sad when I found out about it because he made such an impact in music entertainment and we have truly lost a legend. Am I a huge fan? No. Am I aware of all the controversy that has surrounded him over the years? Of course. But that doesn't make it okay for people to make fun of him and say mean things about him dying.

The other reason I was sad was because I knew people would undoubtedly say mean things about him and begin joking about it, just like when Steve Irwin died. I dreaded getting on the internet when I got home because I knew I would encounter some of these negative, immature attitudes. And of course, as soon as I got on facebook, there was some mean statuses I came across. Here are examples:

"jesus. now where am i going to play, without never ever land. fuck MJ!"

"wow with Michael Jackson dead, what is there left to joke about???"

"michael jackson has died...he was a great singer...and true star...and the best babysitter I ever had"

People forget that celebrities are people too. If someone you go to school with dies, no matter who it is, 99% of everyone feels bad and the people who say mean things are bitched out completely. But if a celebrity dies, it's okay for people to say mean things and laugh about it. Why do people have to be such insensitive assholes? A heart. Try to find one.

Yay, new Buffy & Angel mood themes.

So I spent about 2 hours copying and pasting html (or whatever) into each little mood thingy in order to have these cool little animated Buffy moods. I must say that it inspires me to write more because I like to look at them! I'm a geek, I know.

Unfortunately, I'm gonna be on hiatus for 2 weeks coming up cuz I'm going to Camp Pocono Trails for 2 weeks...yeah technically, it's a fat camp. In 2 weeks I'll probably only lose about 10 - 15 pounds but that will give me the motivation I need. I'm about 40 pounds overweight at the moment. It could be a lot worse, but I need to take control before it GETS worse. I'm in summer mode right now though. I get so miserable and bored every summer that I have no motivation to do anything and just end up sitting like a lump all the time cuz I'm so miserable.

I have to go to Titusville tonight and stay the night with my grandma for a dentist appointment tomorrow, UGH. When we moved, we didn't switch to a different dentist so we always have to travel down there for that stuff. I don't understand why I can't just go tomorrow but my mom's going to get me Nair to do my legs before camp, blah blah. I'll have stuff to do apparently. I want to spend as much time on my laptop as I can before I have to go away to this camp for 2 weeks. I'm hoping this is the "old' me, being so dependent on my life online. i think this will change at camp. Will I still text like crazy though? probably!

Writer's Block: When I Was Young

What do you miss most about being a kid?
I love the fact that I grew up in the 90s. Being born in 1989, I especially got to cherish those amazing years 1995 through 1999 and I remember them vividly. Even many parts of 1994 stick out in my mind. All the amazing Nickelodeon shows, the amazing trends and music...I remember it all.

But my childhood was more than just a pop culture phenomenon. I grew up in a wonderful little town called Titusville, PA. In the words of Ronald Weasley: It's not much, but it's home. My mom had her own practice in Tidioute so my grandma would always watch me until she got home. My mom was a single parent until I was 6 so I spent a lot of time with my grandma since I didn't have a dad. I had a very close bond with my mom too. She loved me so much and she recorded so much of my childhood on video, I love to watch those old videos. We fight quite a bit lately and I miss when I was young, when she was one of my best friends.

I also miss birthday parties at the Titusville skating rink! Oh, those were a blast. I had my 8th and 10th birthday parties there and went to about a million other people's. Okay, maybe a million is a bit of an exaggeration, but you get what I mean.

And of course, I miss the innocence and easiness of being a child. Never knowing about the world's problems, never having to care about anything. I wish I could go back.

There's so much more I could add to this entry, but unfortunately I have some work to do in reguards to cleaning my room and packing for camp...btw, does anyone have a time machine I can borrow?
