People come and go, this is how life is.
And I felt loved, with you, and everyone else
but you were my favorite temporary feeling.

A post by Bella

Hello  dear readers! I am so grateful and deserving of this opportunity to finally address you as I dictate my words to the human. She is quite a good typist, but I am certain that if I had thumbs I would be much faster. I am faster than her at nearly everything – faster at falling asleep, faster at finishing my kibble, and faster at doing our respective morning routines.

Like an elephant graveyard, but with less elephants and more cars

I’m sure there’s a perfectly boring explanation for the cars being here, but that didn’t stop me from imagining an epic Hollywood-style car chase which culminated in the drivers abandoning their vehicles here and fleeing in boats which they had stashed nearby.

Why me?

“We shouldn’t change who we are but use our experience to help other people and (it may sound a bit narcissistic!) make the world a better place, shielded from the harm and devastation that narcissists are causing time after time.”

Can’t Handle the Hustle

“I need to write. to make art. to teach, to change minds and ways of thought.”

Betrayal for an Introvert

“This is significant because I don’t let anyone in. I’ve been taken advantage of and for granted so many times, I tend to push everyone away, but I thought these people were my friends. They’d been watching my Facebook for years and, I, theirs. I believed they were in need of a kind heart and some hope and healing.”

You are Allowed

“In a go-go-go world, it’s easy to get caught up in a rough cycle that will eventually lead to breakdown. It’s important that we remember that the majority of people feel this way- that we are all “competing” for that “I’m the busiest person” trophy… and yet, you don’t win a prize for that.”

Loose Skin

Dear Self,

Sometimes you push too hard. You forget to take a break for fear of failure. You let those silly voices tell you that ‘you are not worthy of rejuvenation because the person next to you must be working harder. You have to keep going. Even allowing one hour or one evening of rest will undo all of your efforts. Get up. Get going. Keep going’.

Do you ever find yourself feeling this way? It might be at work, or at the gym, or at your place of residence… this overwhelming sense of guilt for daring to listen to your body and take care of yourself by breaking for a nap to to watch your favorite show or read a chapter in your book. I do- like, all the time. I found myself in this predicament last week. The previous week at work had been pretty crazy and…

Zombies! They’re real! Run!

That's So Hagen

In some newer news, the CDC — which stands for Center for Disease … Cauliflower? I don’t really want to look it up — released their plan for the public on what to do in the event of a zombie apocalypse. And, if I may say, it’s good to see a governmental agency actually out there, doing what needs to be done to ensure our public safety …

Wait, what? Zombies are real?! Excuse me; I’m leaving. Nothing personal, but I hope they eat you while you read this blog. Serves you right.

I wanted to take a quick look at how inadequate this list is, though. I’m not a genius in terms of zombie lore, and I kind of, sort of don’t completely trust those people who are, because zombie movies are intentionally scary and gory, and who enjoys being scared and gored? I may be a miserable…
