Life and Origami Cat Hats

12 November 2015

For some reason I keep putting myself in situations where there’s just always a lot going on. I don’t mean every day feeling like it’s GO GO GO or that I always have this sense of looming deadlines (though, it’s sometimes true). But more that I like to surround myself with a lot of moving parts.

School is just one of those. And there’s a lot of moving parts in that one area of my life. I’ve got 3 exams this week. A short paper due tomorrow. I’ve got my make up stuff (still) to complete. A term project to work on, which I’m pretty excited to start. Lab hours to complete. And what I’m dubbing a secret stealthy student thing that I’ll discuss/reveal once my professor and I get it worked out.

And all those things are good things. School is my happy zone right now. And with everything else in my life not doing so great, between health and mental health… I need this. All these positive moving parts helping get past the not so good moving parts. It’s like a really weird rube goldberg machine.

Sometimes when the positive parts slow down or aren’t as prevalent… that’s when I’ve got to rely on myself to move me forward… or at least provide enough distraction to get through. Which explains why I have 30+ paper airplanes scattered around my home. It also explains this:

Origami Cat Hats

Cats are the best helpers to a content soul.

  • Your cat is far more patient than mine. Good luck with all the work! Can’t say I envy you, school girl. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Kay

    Hehe, love that your kitty sat for the hat! ๐Ÿ˜€ Best of luck with the school load. I feel you that sometimes being productively busy is a good thing in life, especially when health isn’t at the best. I know when my anxiety peaks, having tasks to focus on and accomplish really help!

  • Your cat is giving the same look of “I love you, but I also kind of hate you right now hooman”that mine give when I try to dress them up for Christmas. ๐Ÿ˜€
