Rain, Last Posts, and The Thing That Made My Day

So many emotions. Finally, I'm done. Holy crap, I'm done. Wait...I'm done? Forever? Like...I don't get to do this with these people ever again....? Huh...not sure how I feel about that.

But I do know how I feel about Rain. Rain. Is. Amazing. My favorite type of weather. I love it so much. The gray skies don't push joy on you, like sunshine does. And once the first drops have fallen, everything becomes more beautiful. It washes away the dust covering our world and everything stands out. Ok the lesson here is that I love the rain. A lot. And it's raining. Right now. I'm happy. :)

Now for the thing that made my day. Many of you know how I have an interesting music taste that varies between rock, punk rock, heavy metal, Swedish heavy metal, Swedish Satanic heavy metal and so on. Well there is one Swedish Satanic heavy metal band I know (Ghost B.C.) and as I was browsing their Spotify page, I noticed that they are currently on tour.... So of course me being the kinda obsessed child I am, I looked at the tour dates and locations. To put it briefly. GHOST IS COMING TO DENVER!!!!! Ok keep in mind I found out about five minutes before writing this slice so I'm still really excited and I think I'm going to get to go and I'm so happy and it's raining and I might get cupcakes today. :) :) :) :)

Apologies for that ^^^ but I really am excited and there's so much good about today so I'm happy. Anyways. Here's my last slice for my time at Logan. I must say, I've sliced with some people for all three years and some for only two. Thank you. It's been a lot of fun slicing for you. Exit is to your right. Have a wonderful day. :)

Last Song of the Week..." A Comet Appears" by The Shins

Alright so for the last song of the week, I decided to do A Comet Appears by The Shins. I love this song because it is a really calm song but also pretty powerful if you look at the lyrics. So I present, the last song of the week, A Comet Appears by The Shins. 

One hand on this wily comet,
Take a drink just to give me some weight,
Some uber-man I'd make,
I'm barely a vapor

They shone a chlorine light on,
A host of individual sins,
Let's carve my aging face off,
Fetch us a knife,
Start with my eyes,
Down so the lines,
Form a grimacing smile,

Close your eyes to corral a virtue,
Is this fooling anyone else?
Never worked so long and hard,
To cement a failure,

We can blow on our thumbs and posture,
But the lonely is such delicate things,
The wind from a wasp could blow them,
Into the sea,
With stones on their feet,
Lost to the light and the loving we need,

Still to come,
The worst part and you know it,
There is a numbness,
In your heart and it's growing,

With burnt sage and a forest of bygones,
I click my heels,
Get the devils in line,

A list of things I could lay the blame on,
Might give me a way out,

But with each turn,
It's this front and center,
Like a dart stuck square in your eye,
Every post you can hitch your faith on,
Is a pie in the sky,
Chock full of lies,
A tool we devise,
To make sinking stones fly,

And still to come,
The worst part and you know it,
There is a numbness,
In your heart and it's growing.

This Joyful Day

The 29th of March. A day I've been dreading for quite a while. And I have a reason for it. It's a good reason. Well maybe to some it isn't. But to me it is. And that's what matters isn't it? From the moment I woke up. I knew the entire day would have an air of sadness surrounding it. As far as I can tell. I was right. I don't remember this day very clearly last year. It was all a blur. The only clarity came around some variation of these words. Jenny is no longer with us 

The Monday after Easter. I was ready for tennis. My mom burst into the house saying that Jenny was in the hospital. We rushed over. And it hurt to see her like that. She looked weak. She never looked weak. She was one of the strongest people I've ever known. She didn't look alive. And she barely was. I'm not sure if being on Life Support counts. It didn't for me. So really, for me, she left the 26th. But for everyone else, she passed on the 29th. March was never a month I particularly liked and I dislike it even more. I'd lost two people that month. A grandfather.
And a second mother. A friend. 
Someone who could make me smile. Someone who greatly influenced who I am.
 The reason I love cats. The reason why I know how to bake. The reason I know how to grocery shop. 

The reason I turned out the way I did...

All because of this one wonderful person. This one. Wonderful. Jenny. 

Jenny was my nanny, she'd been my nanny since I was just 1 year old and I don't ever remember her not being there. Today is her one year anniversary of passing.

Cherry Blossoms

Ok quick background, I am currently in Washington D.C. and the cherry blossoms around the National Mall are in bloom and it's gorgeous so....

We walked to the Washington Monument and already had seen some of the cherry blossoms but they were nothing compared to the amount of slightly pink blossoms that surrounded us as we walked to the Jefferson Memorial. It was like being under a canopy of flowers. The petals haven't started to fall yet but it was still one of the most beautiful walks I've ever done. The blossoms paired with the beautiful sunset over the lake was just breathtaking and I don't think I will ever forget it.

I know this was a short slice but here's a picture to make up for it (yes, I took this myself.)

Sebby and Zephyr

So it occurred to me that I haven't made an actual slice about Sebastian and Zephyr. Yeah, haven't made a post about the two cats that my blog is based off of.

Sebastian is an all black cat with a couple of white hairs (he's an old man at 1 year of age.) He's a sleek cat with gold eyes. Seb was our first cat and he was honestly pretty little. Sebby isn't as little as he used to be but I don't think he's fully grown. Sebastian is really well behaved for the most part. He doesn't hiss or growl at anyone but he has gotten a lot more unsocial since Zephyr came. Sebastian does love the outdoors and it's lead to him getting out into the depths of our backyard despite our best attempts to keep him indoors. He's a pretty laid back cat but he can go pretty psychotic every so often. He is a fan of lying in the middle of the floor, stretched out as long as he can, not caring if he's in peoples way. Sebastian is pretty sweet (except that I'm pretty sure he hates me because we got Zephyr.)

Zephyr is about four months old and he's a little white and black cat with goldish green eyes. He's probably the sweetest cat I've met and because he's a runt, he is tiny. Like, really little. What I forgot to mention is that Sebby is fairly quiet. Zephyr on the other hand, is really loud. He'll walk into a room and start meowing. He also walks what we like to call a tough guy walk. He just walks around like he's some macho cat when he's actually really teeny. Zephyr does enjoy curling up in people's laps and sleeping there, while, might I mention, purring like a maniac. He has a pretty loud purr and he purrs whenever you pick him up. He hasn't really been outside and I'm not sure how soon he will be because of his size. He's a really lovable cat and him and Sebastian get along quite well.



The two of them meeting

The two of them being adorable

Anyways these are my two kittens, I love them both so much and they make my days 100 times better.

After Two Years

Two years ago

I went to Washington D.C.

Of course, there were others,

The rest of my class.

But we had fun.

Every night we went for dinner.

Every night a new place.

And now,

I'm back.

With different people of course.

For a different reason.

Unsure of how this trip will turn out.

I wait,

Wait for the decision to be made for where we are going to get food.

Late Night Movies

Late Night Movies,

Those movies that you decide to watch because you were bored.

Those movies that honestly usually suck.

Those movies that are sometimes decent and worth it.

Those movies that are actually TV shows.

Those movies you watch over Rabbit with Billy.

Those movies that you stay up until 1:00-3:00 in the morning watching.

Those movies that are sometimes watched with your Wifeapple.

Those movies... that we classify.


Late Night Movies.
