Return to the Cat Cafe

Effect_20170416_185608

After months, I finally went back to that cat cafe I visited earlier this year. I found out recently that it had been closed for a bit due to renovations. It’s now a bit bigger with three cat rooms and a handful of new furry faces. The staff was lovely as always and I made a furry friend, named Atom, who wsd really interested in my socks and phone. I also spoke for a bit with the owner, who is like a mom to the cats and is currently studying English.

New kittens at the local shop. They’re a playful bunch. I like quickly saying hi on my way to work.

I always say hi to this little guy on my way to work. I really wish I could have a pet, but I understand why we aren’t allowed to.

Little Miss Lovey Eyes

This sweetheart allowed me to carry her about for at least 20 minutes. I miss the feeling of holding a kitty cat.

Sleepy

It’s my first day back at work after a long holiday. Today, I’ll be returning to a school I haven’t taught at for months. Before, I only worked there on weekends, but now I’ll be there three days a week. I’ll also be in the office one day a week and will continue in Anjo on Saturdays. It looks like I’ll be running about for the rest of January, at least.

Kitten in the Window

effect_20161201_105344

This morning I killed a little time by playing with a kitten in the window of my local pet shop. It was bugging its mother to play, so I tapped on the window. It seemed to have no idea what to make of me. Mom just looked relieved.

Erasure

2016-04-29 09.14.44

This is my last week at my current job, so I started cleaning my workspace and computer hard drive up a bit. I got rid of old documents, nearly a pound of post-it notes, any anything that I wouldn’t absolutely need in the coming days. I also deleted a ton of old files, dating back to when I first started. I logged out of accounts I no longer regularly use. I set my settings back to their defaults. Bit by bit, I’m erasing my existence from there…

It feels unsettling.

I started working there late last July, after my work at the school wrapped up. It was supposed to only last a month, as per my original contract. At the end of that month, my contract was extended, even after all of the other temps were let go. If I stayed a few more months, I would have made a year…

But there was no security, so I started looking elsewhere. I wanted to find something before they could tell me that I was being let go. I misread the situation entirely…

They were going to make me permanent…

Around the same time I gave my notice.

So now, I am erasing 10 months of my life, and I don’t know how to feel about it.
