A little over a year ago I began a lot of news. Not like on the news or in the news or making the news...I'm not that interesting. What I mean is: I began a lot of things that were firsts for me. I moved to a new city, started a new school (for my Graduate degree), I got my first apartment by myself, and did not know a sole for miles and miles. I was excited for my new adventure, but very nervous as well.
A year later, I look back on how fast time has flown by and how so many things have changed. I now love my new town, feel like a pro in my Master's program, adore living by myself, and have an abundance of new friends. Life is great.
I can honestly say that the best 'new' that has happened in the past year is the little guy picture above, Maxwell. I know, it might sound silly because I've done a few notable things, but what can I say...he just tugs at my heart strings.
I debated long and hard about getting a pet. I was unsure if I could be attentive enough or if my next place would allow kitties. After much dispute I received this picture message from Steven:
Need I say more? Steven knew I was debating getting a cat for a while and when he went with his friend to pick up his new cat he found Maxwell. I specifically said that I wanted a cat because everyone wants kittens and I wanted to get an animal that was less likely to be adopted. Turns out that not many people want a one eyed kitten, weird- I know. But to me, he is perfect. After we adopted him he got his surgery and has been the tick to my ticker ever since.
I guess you can say I'm the lucky one <3
