My Shameless Obsession: My Cat

At work the other day, I was in an elevator talking about the television shows I watch with a coworker.  Another woman was standing with us and it was said that we talk a lot about the shows we watch.  This realization prompted the woman standing along side us in the elevator said, “Well, wait until you have kids.”

My coworker and I reached our floor, we stepped out, and as the elevator doors closed we looked at each other and said, “Are you kidding me?”  To my coworker, it was a comment she hears all too often in her job which is mainly with the married-with-children type.

The woman’s comment outraged my coworker because she hears the same comments about her age and marital status (and child-less status) all the time.

The woman’s comment outraged me because she didn’t even hear me begin to talk about my cat. Her name is Mable, but I also call her Bacon because “Mable Bacon.”

I have one thing to say to you, lady: Nothing compares to my cat obsession.

My Instagram account right now:

#100DaysofHappy?  No.  #100DaysofMable. mylifeMy Twitter account right now: twitter   My Facebook account right now:

Yes, I censored my friends in my photo.

Yes, I took an inspirational quote and made slapped it on a photo of Mable.

Yes, I know how great it looks. facebookThe worst part about being obsessed with my cat is that she doesn’t know or she doesn’t care or she does know and doesn’t care.

But do I care?  No.  I’m too busy obsessing over my cat.

5 Things To Remember On The First Day Of Anything

ImageToday was the first day of my internship and it marks the beginning of my senior year of college.  With the stress of my last year of college starting and my first day at my internship ending, I have 5 pieces of advice to get you through the first day of anything you begin.

  1. Organize and Take Notes- You’re going to want to take down as much information as possible in note form.  This will prepare you for the future at this endeavor and will keep you from losing your head!
  2. Prioritize- Never put your personal life any where near your First Day.  You’re going to want to have a clear head for your brain to be as alert as possible.   This means leave your phone in your purse/desk/locker and keep your thoughts all on the business.
  3. Energize- In order to to keep focused, you’re going to want to make sure you’re as alert as possible.  Whether you take the caffeine route or just catch a couple more hours of sleep, it will do you a world of good.
  4. Don’t Be Hard On Yourself– It’s your first day.  You’re human and you’re bound to make mistakes.  If you’re having trouble: talk to a coworker or superior.   They will know how you’re feeling and they will want to have you do everything right the first time rather than have you making constant mistakes.
  5. Have Fun– Make conversation in the coffee room or ask someome advice on where to lunch.  If you don’t know how to strike up a conversation naturally, just ask questions about the other person.  People love talking about themselves and they’ll appreciate you taking an interest in their lives outside of work/school.  When you establish a life for yourself outside of work with your coworkers, they’ll consider you a person beyond your office/cube/class/workplace; which everyone is!

Now go through your first day with these tips in mind and you’ll be a natural at whatever you’re doing in no time.
