Friday's internet situation is not improved

Hello girls, I was hoping to be able to update you with good internet news, but alas my new connection in my room is not yet working so I'm still dealing with my limited internet! The internet is not working in my room so I am, yet again, writing this hurriedly at the library. I'm going to my internet provider's store after this to try to get everything working, so I hope to be able to post next week on time and in a leisurely fashion, but my hopes are not too high!

Anyway, as time is tight let's get onto the topics.

Pets: I've had cats my whole life, always two at a time. When I was little our cats were Crystal and Charity. Crystal was scared of nearly everything and would spend most of her time hiding in our library. Charity was the friendly one who unfortunately for her got the brunt of my attention as a child, which included a lot of pulling her tail and clipping bows in her hair. A little anecdote: one of the things Crystal would let me do was rest my head on her stomach and listen to her purr and my first sentence when I was little was "purr me" as I put my head on her. Awww, isn't that adorable? I don't have too many memories of Crystal and Charity besides those, they both got old and sick and we had to put them down by the time I was 6. I do remember that when Crystal was getting really sick she was too weak to move around the house and I would sit and pet her- the most I ever really got to pet her.

After Crystal and Charity we got Lexi and Bo- two black cats, brother and sister, who we adopted from the Humane Society. We still have Bo, but we unfortunately had to put Lexi down two years ago now. She got a form of cancer and got so weak that she could hardly move. Deciding that we had to take her to the vet to put her down was one of the hardest things I've had to do. I hope none of you have to make a decision like that. Lexi was a cuddly, adorable, fat cat that would purr all the time and rub up against you.

And Bo is my favorite guy, I've been told he acts like a dog. When you get home he greats you at the door, rubbing your legs and meowing loudly. I hope I get to go home for Christmas, not only to see my family and friends, but also to see him! I miss my Bo.

He looks judgmental here, but he really is sweet.

Okay, I was also planning on getting to the friend topic, but I'm about to get kicked out of the library- I will update with the next topic and soon as I'm able!


  1. Why do you have so little time in the library?

  2. Because I'm not free to go until late in the afternoon and everything in France closes too early!
