It’s a gloomy and rainy day here on Long Island, but my cat Harvey looked very photogenic laying on the window sill. We’ve had him for 10 years and is the most handsome Maine Coon I’ve seen!
My brother and I found him when we were about 12 and 13 respectively at a neighbors house. His mother abandoned him, and we heard him meowing from a cinderblock. He had to be about a week old, ears folded in and eyes that were a deep blue. We ran him to our mom, who is also a big cat lover, and Harvey proceeded to pee in my mother’s lap! From that point on he was ours!
His name comes from two different points of view. My brother named him after the tv character Harvey Birdman from the show Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. I named him after Harvey Milk, after the late politician himself, and coincidentally because when bottle feeding the young kitten, Harvey would hold his milk bottle like a little baby clutching his two front paws on the bottle.
Harvey is the perfect companion and is great for cuddling! He is also very photogenic! I hope other cat lovers who see this can show some love to this handsome Maine Coon!
I made this blog with the intent on writing something almost every week, hell even something every day!
But I found myself procrastinating as always and putting off what I enjoy doing most.
This past summer has been both relaxing and busy. My job as a part of the promotions crew at Connoisseur Media took up some of my time, while the other half consisted of leisurely time with some friends and family.
Now that summer is coming to an end, my job is beginning to slow down with events as the weather will turn colder (winter is coming folks)! I know that a second job is in the works so that I can save more money for loans.
My mental health has been a roller coaster, and that’s definitely hindered my writing process. I’ve been caught up with a lot of over-thinking and many moments of beating myself up because of the amount of stress I received since graduating from college.
The stress of having to find another job to support me, while also balancing the process of wanting to go to grad school, staying healthy, and having a social life has taken its toll, and it’s slowing down any process of bettering myself. Some of this I’ll get into better detail at another time, but it’s almost 12:30am as I am writing this and would like to go to bed soon so I’ll keep this short and sweet.
I’m going to make it a goal to write on this blog at least once a week. I’ll also set up some little goals for myself to start making my life a bit more positive instead of negative.
So here is to good vibes and positive results! I wish you all the best!
