Finally uploaded my FundaGeek video. The approval committee has been anxious to approve my project and has been waiting for me to get my “about” video up. Wee! Can’t wait to get started with this. :]
Assisted a stray cat give birth to the last of her litter of three tonight. I guess it was her first time giving birth. Earlier, she was crying in pain and two other kitties were crying with her and they were pretty noisy, I knew something was wrong. I went outside looking where the noise was coming from and found a cat with 2 kittens rolling in blood and amniotic fluid beside her and another kitten peeking out her vagina. I had to press her tummy so the last amniotic sac with the kitty would come out. I was scared that she might scratch or bite me at first but she just let me help her. I had to pop the amniotic sac of the last kitty while the mom transported the two kittens somewhere else. I was waiting for her to come back for the last one but she didn’t. So I had to cut the baby’s umbilical cord and clean her up. It was gross. I hope the mom comes back for the little one though. I’ll bottle feed her tonight.
I completely eliminated rice off my diet for 3 months now. I’m gradually shifting to a pescetarian diet then hopefully go vegetarian/vegan. Yay to me!
I made myself grilled fish and kangkong salad for brunch. We got lots of kangkong/water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica) growing in the garden so I grabbed a bunch and boiled it, added tomatoes and green chilis and added calamansi juice, a bit of sugar, and a dash of salt. Surprisingly turned out really tasty.
I made this sandwich for brunch today: turkey sausage sandwich with caramelized onions and chili. Watching the chief justice say his piece at the impeachment court.
I have missed this tree house.
There has never been a documented human fatality from overdosing on tetrahydrocannabinol or cannabis in its natural form. Ever.
Oat and fish based homemade dogfood with veggies for the overly-sensitive pug who’s allergic to almost everything.
Experimenting with his diet to pinpoint his food allergies.
I have a master’s degree in structured procrastination. Gaaah. I just finished making Pugly a bottle of anti-itch spray that contains aloe vera, sage, and epsom salt.
Made this collage when I should be working and worrying about the video that I haven’t started working on. Gaaah. I am tired and the emotions are building up.
I can’t believe it’s almost two years since you unexpectedly left. Time has become a pretty vague concept to me. I’ve come to believe that time is not linear. I’ve a feeling it’s subjective. Your death has me experiencing that. Time has been dilating, passing me by, and has been standing still for the past two years.
You are dead but you remain to be the only thing that’s real. What I was and how I felt when you were alive were real. Now, everything has become abstract. I have become just a spectator of my life. I am detached from myself. I want so much to go back to my previous state but I don’t think that’s possible.
I have become an alien to this world and to myself. Is this what Jesus was talking about? I have never lived like this before in my head. It is a surreal state of mind. I think I’ve gone crazy but not quite since I can articulate the experience. I have grown tired. But I don’t know how to get myself out of this. I just want to die but I can’t kill myself now. Time has sneaked up on me and I’m now in that time period where killing myself would be no longer morally permissible.
What to do? I long to hear someone say, “So, it goes,” referring to me.
Almost 4 hours of reading non-stop. Reviewing a couple of related literature. Thinking of rewriting my project proposal that’s why I have to read.
Took a break and cleaned the turtles’ tanks and their shells. My turtles turn 10 this year. Duhwain and I were planning to bring them with us if ever we migrate somewhere else. Now, I’m left alone with them. When the turtles collapse, my world ends.
Yes, I am fully aware my turtle story is no infinite regress. I just wanted to use the expression since I’m cleaning the turtles. Haha.
