I love cats. They are graceful, playful and beautiful. I love how they act around without care. I love how curious they are. I love how athletic they can be. I love their mews. I love their fur. I love their soft, squishy padded foot. But unfortunately, pets are not allowed in my place – apartment rule. Oh how sad. Why would the landlord prohibit pets such as cats and dogs.
I fell in love with cats when I was around 4 or 5 I guess. When I was outside our house playing by myself, I saw two kittens playing around and chasing a butterfly. The way they move and jump around as well as their playful nature really grabbed my attention. The more I looked at them, the more I became interested in them. Turns out, they were the kittens from our neighbors’ cat and I was so happy when I found out that I can pet them. It was hard for me to express my feeling when I ran my fingertips on the kittens’ fur. It was so soft and silky.
One time, our house was plagued by mice. My mom then asked our neighbor if we could borrow his cat. I was so excited that time because I thought we will finally have a cat. But my mother had a different plan in mind. She borrowed the cat to get rid of all the mice inside the house. That time, for the first time in my life, I saw that cats are accomplished hunters. I was amazed on how quick and agile a cat is.
Ever since then, I became a cat person.
While many people are saying how harmful an air conditioner or cooling unit is, I still love our AC. Yes, I am well aware of the risks of using AC, which is why I only use AC when necessary and bought an energy efficient and CFC free cooling unit. At least with this, I would feel no guilt in using AC whenever it is a hot day outside. Sorry to Mother Nature…
I love our AC because of one particular reason – comfort. I always want to feel comfortable for whatever reason it may be. When I am working, I want to be comfortable while doing it. If I watch TV, I want to be comfortable. Even during meals, I want comfort. And if it is too hot, there’s no way I can feel it. So when it is hot, I grab the AC’s remote and turn it on.
The biggest problem I had with my AC was when it broke down. It was a nightmare because it was an extremely hot summer day that time. Without giving any second thoughts, I dialed for the AC service Boca Raton that I know about. I don’t want to experience a lot of discomfort just because our AC was down.
Only on the Internet can a person be lonely and popular at the same time.”
― Allison Burnett, Undiscovered Gyrl
This was a quote about blogging, which I found over the internet. And I believe about what he said. You can be a lonely person online and be popular at the same time. This can happen in internet forums, online games, online communities and most specially on blogs.
How is this possible?
Well, it is hard to explain how, so let me put a certain situation how this can become possible. If you are online, be it playing games, participating in online communities and forums or spending most of your time on your blog, there’s a huge chance that you are by yourself. Thus you are lonely – not necessarily the lonely sad kind of thing. You are lonely because you are alone in your room doing what you are doing over the internet.
You can become popular at the same time if you are the kind of gamer who has plenty of online game friends, the blogger who has many follows and comments and the forum user who has many replies and community friends.
We can’t also dismiss the fact that over the internet, you can create a different persona about yourself. You can become anyone or any person that can become popular to other people. So this is why some people who have experienced bullying or have problems with their social life create a persona over the internet to escape their reality.
Now I created this blog not because I was bullied or having social problems. Definitely, I did not create this blog because I want to be popular. Well, if it happens then I would be glad. But for now, my plan for this blog is just right anything I want.
