Remember me? I used to blog daily, take tons of pictures, and even spend all my free time either doing projects or researching new ones.

Then life happened. I got that neat new job, that’s super busy. I love it, and I spend all day on my feet which helped me lose 4 lbs.

That wasn’t all that helped, I also started doing Zumba. I don’t know why I never tried it before! I’ve been doing it for 3 weeks  now. LOVE IT.

I almost finished painting the dining room, and I’m just one cover panel away from finishing the kitchen. Seriously, one.

We spent some time at my parent’s campsite, relaxing and enjoying life. I rode on a jetski for the first time, and got up enough courage to drive it. Again with the WHY DIDNT I DO THIS YEARS AGO?!

I also turned 25. A quarter century. I don’t feel that old, fortunately. I also don’t think I look that old. But I had a quarter century crisis and dyed my hair super dark brown. I couldn’t deal with it, so I got it professionally done. I streaked it bleach blonde and burgundy red. I love it now.

However, with all the fun new experiences and changes that have taken place since my last blog post, it wasn’t all roses. My cat, Pooky, passed away. He was 17 years old, and I picked him out when I was just 8 years old. I haven’t taken many pictures of him since I lived at home with him and my mom, so the most recent ones I have were when I was just 19. Which is weird to say, since that’s only 2 years older than he was when he passed! Here’s a few that I have saved on this laptop.

  CIMG2856  He was the perfect tuxedo cat. Perfectly lined white, just like a tuxedo. He even had the white gloves and shoes. He looked striking with a red bowtie collar :)



This was back in a time I didn’t yet find out about the invention of makeup. I kind of miss being able to pull it off. If only in my own head.


My mom will be getting his ashes soon, so we’ll be holding a proper funeral. It was hard to take the news, but much harder to console my mom through it.

On a lighter note, she rescued another cat. Drew and I are firm on adopting only animals that need rescuing, and will be signing up in the next week or two with the local SPCA to walk puppies that are cooped up all day waiting to be adopted. I’m excited!

With all that said, not much else here to report. Well, except that the reason I haven’t been rushing to blog is because I got an Ipad. Which is frickin awesome. But I’ll be back again tomorrow with another Thrifty Thursday, so stay tuned!
