Photo 101 Day 16: Treasure & Close-up

A token for the carousel at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum is my treasure.

A couple weeks ago I went with my boyfriend Josh, his coworkers, and their kid to the children’s museum. We had a great time, ended the day with ride on the carousel, and we were way more amused with it than the kids on the ride.

Katniss and her side chick: The Album

The other day was my roommate/best friend’s (Crystal) birthday. She has a love and hate relationship with my cat, Katniss. Crystal is allergic to Katniss but since Katniss was there first so Crystal takes allergy meds to cope with it. Katniss is pretty much infatuated with Crystal. She like to be around her, gets upset if she goes out with friends and doesn’t come home until morning, and cranky if she doesn’t give her attention.

Sometimes I like to capture the both of them when they are hanging out together or dedicate a song from Katniss to Crystal. Of course this is purely for my own amusement. I joked with Crystal that Katniss was going to make Crystal a cd for her birthday. Crystal thought this was just a joke but oh no, this really happened. I present to you Katniss and Crystal the album!

The inside has a picture of the two, happy together on the couch. On the side is a “for when I” list from Katniss to Crystal. The “for when I” list matches with the song list on the back cover.

Katniss’s “for when I”                                              The Song

1. For when I know you’re coming home              Drake – Hold on

2. For when I close my eyes                  Lana del Rey- Dark Paradise

3. For when I need love         Tokio Hotel- Love who loves you back

4. For when I am clingy             Disclosure- Latch

5. For when I feel you pet me           Snoop Dogg- Sensual Seduction

6.  For when I waste time with you                Foster the People- Waste

7. For when I miss you                               Blink 182- Miss you

8.  For when I mess up                      Puddle of Mudd- She hates me

9.  For when I wait like a statue               Audioslave- Like a Stone

10. For when I am in the corner        Robyn- Dancing on my own

Crystal and I also call Katniss potato since she’s brown and chubby so I put potato records as the record company. Crystal laughed pretty hard at that. All in all as much as Crystal didn’t want to fully appreciate this gift, she enjoyed it and I got a kick out of it too haha!

What is home? photo 101: day 1

“Make yourself feel at home”, is what we tell people when they are a guest in your house. I’ve never felt at home in the sense of this is my hometown since I’ve moved so much. Home isn’t a physical place to me. Since I’ve battled depression a majority of my life “home” certainly wasn’t a mental state of being for me.

I consider home to be when I feel peace and happiness.  Although I have a family that cares about me home is not with them. I have a boyfriend that loves me but home is not fully with him either. Home is where unconditional love is and although my boyfriend and my family are great home wouldn’t be nearly home for me without my cat, Katniss. She is simply the best little fluff ball and always puts me at ease when this world feels like too much.

Katniss

One day I’m hoping that home is within my own mind but as I continue to work on that, for now home is where the cat is.
