Things That Suck, part n
Things That Suck

  • Summer vacation ending this week. Of my (ambitious, yes) plan for the summer, I've only been able to accomplish two things: taking a German course (two, actually!), and taking care of myself. Nothing else. Big time suckiness.
  • My command of Greek grammar (see previous item for reason)
  • My mood
  • Not having a cat
  • Emotional black holes
  • Life, sometimes

Things That Don't Suck

  • Going back to TAU. Studying.
  • My friends. I can't stress this enough.
  • Homer

Current Mood: bleak

I still need to discuss this with my faithful flatmate. The logistics are tricky. But I might.

Mew!!!!

Yes, cats are excellent and will make you feel much better. Because, really, no matter *how* much you screw things up, you always succeed at feeding the cat (because if you don't, the cat bites you!), and then you can look over at this living breathing furry reassuring cute success and know that your life isn't entirely unjustified.

I like cats.

Just remember

1) Adopting a cat is a lifetime commitment and responsibility. It's very rewarding, but you have to know that you're in this for fifteen years.

2) Two cats are better than one, as they can keep each other company while you're away. (Plus you get bonus antics!)

Re: Just remember

Yes, I remember. That's why I have not decided yet. I very much want a cat now, but I have no idea where my life is going after this degree, so if I do take a cat in, I'm committing to something about the unknown future years. This requires some getting used to.

Two cats being better than one sounds right. My only concern is logistic, though. We don't have a balcony, see, so the kitty litter would have to be consigned to the bathroom; this creates accessibility issues (we'll need to install a cat flap or something to allow the cat(s) access when the a/c is on) and other practical issues (two kitty litter boxes? That would make the bathroom rather less pleasant.)

But the jury is still out.

1) Do it anyway.

2) Two cats can share. Get one of those big boxes, covered, with an active carbon filter on top and you won't smell a thing. (Clean daily.)

5) Cheer up a bit. :)

1) I recommend doing first, thinking later.
2) Don't you guys have a good place in the kitchen? (remember that used correctly, those litter boxes are indeed odorless - talking from experience).
If you need someone who will take care of the little darling(s) on unforseeable future events, I'd more than love too, and I guess I'm not the only one who likes cats around here (ni!), so don't worry about that.

I myself thought about the same thing several times, and eventually came to the conclusion that it clashes with my travel plans (long trip after school), but afterwards - oh yeah, I'm gettin' me a furball!

כך זה לא יתבצע בחיים. אתה צריך להפיל אותם עליו, יחד עם איומים ודד-ליין.

אתה לא מבין: *אני* הפלתי אותם *עליו*. הוא רק מזמין אותי לקחת אותם בחזרה, כדי לגזול ממני את התירוץ. הייקו:

Sometimes a single failure or frustration can turn all success or joy to ash in your mouth.
