Feeling better about things now...although I'll always miss Wednesday, of course...
I have a day off work today and was taking advantage of it by doing some felting (see my blog for a few details on what I made): at http://knittyknatty.blogspot.com/

My cat Wednesday died today. I am so sad. When i got home from work I checked my messages and a lady two streets over had left me one saying she found my kitty in the road. I went to pick up her body and dug a hole in the front yard beside the lilac tree I planted this spring and buried her. I can't deal. I miss her so much already. I'm so lonely without her; the apartment is so quiet. I emptied her litter box and put her scratching post in storage. I haven't been able to put away her food and water bowls yet. I couldn't even stay in my apartment. I feel so guilty because she had followed me to work this morning but I didn't have time to bring her back in. I would have been late for work. Seems like a trivial thing now, and of course it is compared to the loss of her.
I'm only working part-time now. But I'm registered full-time for classes next year. I don't know what I'm going to do without her. She was everything to me. She meant so much to me. It seems like every time a relative dies, this time my grandfather, my pet dies soon after.

What Your Latte Says About You

You are interested in only pure and simple pleasures. You don't like to pollute your body or mind.

You are a very frivolous person. You don't take anything too seriously. Why should you?

You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast.

You have a healthy relationship with caffeine. You're definitely not dependent on it.

You are a child at heart, and you don't ever miss the opportunity to do something playful.

You are complex and philosophical, but you are never arrogant.

I talked to Honey Bee earlier and Dominic, the Montreal coach, said I'd make a good jammer!

At roller derby practise last night, we had a coach from Montreal drilling us. At the end, we did some scrimmage. I was jammer for two plays, lead jammer for one. A girl on the other team slammed me into the boards. And am I feeling it today. My skates busted again but Honey Bee is getting them repaired at the cobbler's. I need to get some good skates.

I didn't mention that I am getting a grant in January! This really commits me to going full-time, which I am really nervous about. I worry that I won't be able to do it, and if I drop a class, does that affect my grant and OSAP? Aargh, plus, a lot of people have been discouraging me from going full-time, they don't think I can handle it. I really need to be more surrounded by people who believe in me, that I can do it. The ideal for me would be to work full-time as well, but I think I'm going to do one thing at a time, give myself some time to adjust to a full schedule and then see what happens. And I just cannot work in the food/service industry any more, and that's where my experience is. Crappy, I know, but what can you do. I'd like to get some experience in a more professional environment, like an office. I went to a summer job workshop by Career services, got my resume critiqued, some people tell me it's who you know, but I haven't had the opportunity to meet that many people. And then, it may seem like a minor issue but I don't have professional-looking clothes to wear. I don't even have tights that have no hole in them. I guess I could wear pants but I have like one pair of dress pants and they need hemming. I shop at St. Vincent de Paul, usually. Maybe I just wasn't thinking. It's hard to predict where you are going to be and how you need to be dressed for it.
