Day 2: My First Love

My first love, if you'd call it that, I was 7 years old and the kid that lived down the road from me was a year older than I am. We'd sit and play games together watch movies together, and there'd be times that I'd go over to his house to play Nintendo or something.

I liked him, he liked me. Like I said, I don't know if what was between us happened to be love or not. He did try to kiss me when I was younger. At least I think I remember him doing it, my memory of the past is still foggy.

I tried talking to him a few years ago, but he still thought I was cute and the conversation he made was all about that. I didn't really feel comfortable talking about how he still thought I was cute, and that he'd want me to move in with him. He's married and has a kid of his own, I would not have moved in with him, never ever.

My apologies for such a short entry, but there's really no much to write about my first love.

10 things Freya hates

Everybody has stuff they don't like, and surprisingly enough it's a lot like that in the animal kingdom as well. Animals prefer one thing over another, that's why I thought I'd ask Freya about stuff she really doesn't like. I'm prepared for the worst. I don't know what her list of 10 things Freya hates are. 

  1. Rachel Ray Cat food
        We've tried feeding her all natural Rachel Ray cat food, and Freya refused to eat any of it. We even went with the motto, "If she gets hungry she'll eat it." It's not the case with Freya, she'll keep on pestering someone until they give in.

  2. People watching animals on TV or on the computer
         Freya is a jealous cat. I talk about a cat I'm watching, she'll come over and sit on the computer with the look of, "Focus on the cat you have, not the cats on the internet." It's kind of cute that she's jealous and annoying at the same damn time.

30 Day challenge Day 1: About Me

I've realized that not a lot of people know much about me with this blog, other than I have health problems and I've done 30 good things about my challenge, which I will post a list to all the days in that challenge sometime this week.  I'll do the one I started months ago in a few weeks. I just want to do one challenge at a time.

None of these challenges will take the place of anything like Freya's posts or a normal everyday post. These are separate entries. I just needed some way that people would get to know me, as a human, as who I am.

The ultimate guide to acne

This post was cross-posted at: Freaky Unfashionable Fashionista 
There’s something I really don’t talk about, out of embarrassment, and the fear that nobody understands whats going on. But because talking about my problem is hopefully going to be therapeutic, and I hope other women or men can relate. I have a problem with acne. Sometimes its so bad, I feel like I hit puberty all over again. I don’t like going out in public with a huge zit that not even makeup can cover. Knowing that I’m not alone makes me feel a little better, and I’m not going crazy.

9 Facts about Acne

How much do you really know about acne? To be honest, there's a lot of things that people thought was true about acne which was never true. To shine some light on things here's some facts about acne that I found interesting.

Happy Black Cat Awareness Day

Oh, oh, Freya's here to write a very important message to her cat friends. Especially her black cat friends, because it's Black Cat Appreciation Day. She knows that her black cat friends are being killed every day at shelters, and most people look over them because they're supposed to be scary and bad luck. Freya knows the truth she knows her black buddies aren't as bad as they look. Freya herself has black fur cat on her, well sort of, it's really black brown, and tan, but Freya doesn't care. Since Freya knows the importance of black cat appreciation, she told me to dictate what she says for her, so it'll be easier to read.

A message from Freya 

Dear people, 
Did you know my friends the black cats are put to sleep because nobody loves them enough to take them home? I have a home with people who love me, but these can't don't. They don't know what it's like to have someone hold them when they're scared, they don't even know what it's like to give someone a penguin, because they're in their cages. The cages are so teeny. I went in a cage once, and it made me cry. I had to get out.

Black cats only look different, they're not mean, they're not bad, and they're not scary. My human mom and dad both had a black cat before, and they were cool kitties. I've met some when I was living on the streets, they weren't bad at all, just very misunderstood.

Let me tell you about living on the streets, because I don't think many people understand how scary it is. The only water I could get was water from puddles, or water from lakes and ponds. The lake by my house has bad stuff in it from the hospital. When it comes to food, not everyone is nice, and some days I'd go hungry, and others people would feed me. But what was really scary was at night, it got cold, and dark and I'd shake because it was so cold. I'd hide under cars, even though I knew I could get ran over, just so I could feel safe. When human man and human woman adopted me, I was happy, they feed me when I'm hungry, I have a nice warm bed to sleep in, and a human to cuddle with when I'm told. Every cat should have a human who loves them, even the black cats.


If Freya could do more to help the black cats I would, they need a human. They're even really pretty kitties. Freya has a couple pictures of black cat friends. I haven't met them yet, but I still think they're friends. All cats are my friends.

This black cat he's a baby, isn't he cute? She's loved by a family. And I think she has such a pretty blue collar I want one. 

Black kitties can even be prettyful. See! I'd like to have a flower crown like this pretty kitty. This pretty kitty looks so very pretty don't she?  She's not mean or scary.

My human says I have those big kitty eyes too. She calls them kawaii anime girl eyes. She's not just saying that because this kitty is from Japan, she calls them kawaii anime eyes because my eyes are big cute and very expressive.
Doesn't Mr or Mrs. Kitty look happy in her people's arms? All black kitties need to be happy in the arms of their people. 

Those are only some of my feline friends. The other friends are still in shelters, being sad and hungry with no crowns, no hugs, and not even a pretty blue collar. Please can someone save a black cat I'd be really happy.

What is my blog writing process like?

I've written about how to come up with topics, and what to do to get viewers, but I've never really given a full walk through of everything that I do so that my blog will be ready almost every day. Even the days I'm sick I had stuff planned a head of time, not that I ever remembered posting the stuff because I don't but, it happens.

The calendar 

I usually start every month with a blog calendar. I like to try to keep my blog topics varied as possible, while I don't label what I'm going to be writing about yet, I try to make sure that I have an idea about the type of blog post I want. For instance, tomorrow is a long awaited definition post so I can talk a little more about writing and continuing to expand people's minds. I may not go with what's written on the calendar that particular day, but at least I have somewhere to turn if I have no idea what kind of blog to write and to do.

Gather the materials

At least a day before or the day of I gather the materials I need for my post. If I found inspiration from a magazine, it can even be a recipe that I tweaked a bit to make into a vegetarian recipe or possibly something I saw at the grocery store. The materials will help me organize the thoughts I need. Sometimes I just go with the flow, and I'm not worried about the materials.

Writing the blog

Again this can be a day earlier than the day it's posted. I take time and write the blog, and usually just go with the flow. I like trying to work diligently during the day and work on the content. Whatever the content may, it's writing time.

Finding and editing pictures

If there's no picture of my own for a project, I go to Pixabay or Pexels just so I can get my materials and edit them with Canva, so they look a little bit different and I can write what I want for the banner, and make it look nicer. They say that using photos give more views, and with the banner, I can pin it to my Pinterest.

Editing the Blog

I use Grammerly and run through my blog. I know I could pay the extra money for the full subscritpion to Grammerly, but I don't think it's that important, and sometimes, if I don't like the way my stuff is written I go to Prowriting Aid, and hope it corrects the problem.

Sharing my blog

When I'm done I post my blog and share it, the places I share are Twitter, Flipboard, Google+ and Pinterest. I could post it more places than that, in which I'm attempting to give a weekly update on my Twitter as well.

Double checking

Sometimes I reshare my blog post if I think it could get more views or whatever. Writers and bloggers usually center their blog post around another blog post, with that in mind, I make sure that the blog post I'm linking back to works, if I like how everything is laid out and etc, so I know what to schedule when I write my next blog.

10 Movies I could watch over and over and still love

We all have movies we'd watch over and over again because they're written so well, or because we can connect to them. The same goes for me I'm not afraid to amdit there are movies that I can watch over and over again. While my list may be really weird, it's the movies I'd watch over and over again, without getting tired of the movies.

Some lovings from Freya

It's been a beautiful, lazy Friday if I do say so myself. The weather was beautiful, everything's going nicely and it's another day for Freya to blog. I as her human believe she loves her blogging moments. She loves to cuddle and try to tell me what's on the mind of a cat, while she crawls on my back. She's even llicking my hands as I'm trying to type out this blog for her. She's a very silly kitty.

Freya and I wanted to talk a bit about what we plan on doing. Well at least right now, there's many of things that people can get for free for their kitties, and Freya wanted to let everyone else know what to get for their cats. She loves to be nice and loving to other animals who want or need foods. That also means if you can donate your pet food to the local animal shelter, if you don't have a pet, she'd love that.

Lucy Pet Products
ASPCA Pet Safty Pack
Fancy Feast
Purina One True Instinct

Miss Freya said that the list she has there is all that there really is online right now for free samples of cat stuff. She does hope it can help someone who wants to try a new cat food.

Much love,
Trixie and Freya

Freya time

Before I let Freya share her blog post, I want to share something, because I don't think people think that Freya knows what's going on during these blogging sessions and that she's not around me when I tell her it's blogging day. This little furball behind me is Freya, this photo was taken just now. She knows what time it is, and she's ready for her input. That, that's a cat who's ready to blog and talk about the life of a turtle tortoiseshell cat.

I'm going to be helping Freya write for awhile, lol cat is really hard to read sometimes. I know it and Freya and I are really sorry.
Freya. Freya. 

Freya's blog: 

Miss human girl says I've been overly friendly to her lately. I like to wake her up in the morning after she feeds me so we can talk. I like talking with human mom girl. She's nice, she feeds me and we love to cuddle. We cuddled all last morning. We called this morning too. She says it makes her happy. It makes me happy to cuddle. 

Adult human girl and I have a bond that I don't have with my little human girl. Little human girl is my best friend, and the first person I go to, but adult human girl and I are different. She feeds me, shares stuff with me and talks to me like I'm important. Little human girl is who I love to protect and who I spend time with.

Tomorrow, adult human and I have something to do for my blog for Friday. I don't know what it is, and she won't tell me. I want to know what it is. Oh well. I'll find out soon.

stupid humans (By Freya)

Human mom hiding because she's sick

Oh yay! It's Friday, Friday, it's Friday. As I human mom am helping Freya with her blog, she's clawing at the bed and being a silly kitty cat. Her typical Freya fashion. Typically beautiful and typically sassy. All torti-tude. She wanted me to remind everyone that I work for her. 

Yeah, without further ado, I'll leave the floor to Freya. Since I'm writing for Freya tonight it won't be in lol cat. 

Yes, hello, it's me Freya. The humans think it's kind of silly that I like to share my toys with people while their in the bathroom. I try to put them all under the door because the humans forgot about me. But when I'm in the bathroom with them I don't play with toys. I sit in the bathtub, and look around. Mom human thinks that's silly. She says to me, "Freya, you're not taking a bath. You don't even like water." I tell her, "But mom, the water isn't on." I just like relaxing in the tub. 

Oh human man said something today that bothered me. I was sitting by my bowl because I was hungry. He said it wasn't feeding time, and that human sister needed to get me water. I tried tell him that I was hungry and not thirsty a few times and he didn't listen! He made human sister get me water only! I wanted food. It got me mad. Tonight I'm going to get my kitty revenge. 

I also got yelled at for being in the pantry room a bit ago. Mom human told me to get out. She said the last few times I walked in there without people knowing, they shut the door and couldn't find me for a few hours. I wasn't scared or mad when I was alone I liked it. I know how to cry and scratch. But human mom and dad said I can't stay in their because I might poop on the floor. I wouldn't I promise. 

That's all Freya has to say. I love all my human friends. Love Freya
