Monday Motivation #35

You may be suffering through something that makes you feel hurt, isolated, and alone. But, there will always be others who have gone through the same thing, or are currently going through it. There will always be other people who understand and appreciate you, even if they're not close by. They are with you in spirit, always. So, you are never truly alone.

Feline Friday #34 – Kitties and Their Unique Personalities!

I find it really interesting how cats interact with different people and animals. Of course, kitties have unique personalities and traits, just like humans do. But, they respond to different people in such a wide range of ways.

Always do what is right. Make decisions and choose words you truly believe in. Even when other people try to convince you otherwise, follow your heart and do what you know is right.

CIB Sunday #9 – ‘Yo-kai Watch’

So, what makes 'Yo-kai Watch' such a good video game? A great many things! The Yo-kai designs are cute, original, and oftentimes, clever. The combat system is surprisingly strategic and requires a lot of thought, especially with boss battles. The game's sense of humor is fun and leads to many great moments. Both children and adults will be able to connect with it. Now, let's delve deeper into what makes 'Yo-kai Watch' a great video game!

Feline Friday #33 – Kitties and Fireworks!

I think fireworks are beautiful, and I enjoy seeing them. However, the noise they make is very very loud. And my cats really don't like loud, sudden noises. Needless to say, the Fourth of July isn't their favorite holiday.

Blog Update and Schedule Changes

I will still post on a regular basis and keep the blog active. I'm going to do that on a smaller scale, though. I'm thinking that I'll aim for four to five posts a week and see how that works. I definitely want to keep my feature posts, including Monday Motivation, Feline Friday, and CIB Sunday. That should leave room for one to two poetry posts every week.

Do your part to spread kindness and make the world a better place. It may not seem like these simple steps can do much, but treating people with respect and consideration can do wonders. Positive actions like these have an infinite amount of power and possibility behind them.

Feline Friday #32 – Just Zen and Her Fish!

I looked over to see Zenny in a deep sleep with her head resting on an orange fish toy. She looked so peaceful and relaxed laying like that; it was incredibly endearing! It was a simple, but sweet moment to start the morning with, and it helped brighten my day. I hope these pictures of Zen can brighten your day, too!

CIB Sunday #8 – ‘Eternal Sonata’

'Eternal Sonata' is a role-playing (RPG) video game developed by Tri-Crescendo and published by BANDAI NAMCO. It was made exclusively for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with many unique mechanics and systems never before used in RPG video games. The official description of this game also mentions that 'Eternal Sonata' was created to be the RPG game fans and next-gen gamers had been waiting for. So, does it live up to that promise? I would say so.

Feline Friday #31 – Crab Kitties?!

If you’ve ever shopped on Amazon for cat products, you may have seen various Kitan Club Cat Caps for sale. They’re basically little bonnet-like hats for your kitties to wear, and they come in a blind box, or mystery, format. Well, I’ve been eyeing these bonnets for a long time now, and I finally decided to take the plunge and buy one (much to the chagrin of my cats). I chose to go with Kitan Club’s “Aquarium” series.

Remember to look out for one another. These are tough times, and as people, one of the best things we can possibly do is support each other. Be kind. Raise each other up, rather than tear each other down.

Well, I'm 23 years old today! I'm grateful just to be alive right now. And I'm looking forward to having a nice, relaxing day at home with my family!

Remember, it's always okay to take a break if you need to. Taking care of your personal health and well-being is very, very important; that should always come first. If you need to take a step back from social media, if you need to tune out of the news, if you need to just take a moment for yourself, then feel free to do so.

CIB Sunday #7 – ‘Resident Evil 5’

Without a doubt, 'Resident Evil 5' is truly a memorable, enjoyable experience, one that sets itself apart from the series’ other titles. It’s a worthwhile game to try, especially in co-op mode, for many reasons. Due to its fantastic integration of co-op, smooth combat and gameplay, likeable characters, and highly suitable soundtrack, 'Resident Evil 5' is a must-play of the long-running series.

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.

Feline Friday #27 – Zen’s Story!

I talked a bit about Zen's background in my introductory Feline Friday post, but I didn't really go in depth with all that she went through. So today, I want to share Zen's story, and all that she's overcome throughout the years.
