What's wrong with her?

I know I'm behind with my posts both about my trip to Sweden, my lipstick review, my haul, and basically everything else I've thought of blogging about lately (trust me, there's been a lot. But sadly, all these golden juices have evaporated into thin air while I had to take care of other things).

My friend told me to get back to blogging and I guess I needed that push.

The past days haven't been the greatest for more reasons but I'm only going to mention the most recent one.

Not only did I wake up to a colony of ants having invaded my room (ugh they were EVERYWHERE. It was SO gross!! I could not move around without stepping on at least 3), I also had to take one of my 3 cats, Pjuske, to the vet for the second time within just 3 days.
She went from being a terrible attention seeker, who would lie on her back and wait for a belly rub to a cat who just lies down. She won't drink, eat, or go to her litter-box. She doesn't move around more than necessary and when she does, she sneaks. From being a cat, that would purr the second you look at her, she now starts to growl if we touch her. She even hissed at the vet today!

One of the worst things I can think of is when my pets are not feeling well. I have no way but to stalk them 24/7 to find out if something is up and even that is hard.
Of course I can't tell what is wrong with her, but she seems to be in pain.
At first the vet thought that the birth control pills she is on have not been working correctly and that she is now in heat, but it got worse and that's why we called the vet again this morning. She talked to her colleague and they didn't like the symptoms so they decided to keep her.

My earlier experience with vets have not been the best so of course I was worried about her, but this was the first time we had gone to this vet and she was such a sweet person. She even thanked us, on my cat's behalf, for calling in again - She said she could tell we cared very much about our pets and that shows me that, to her, my cat is not just another patient they can make money from (vets are QUITE pricey in Denmark), but Pjuske - a cat that she personally cares about and that makes me happy. I trust she will know what's best for my cat but of course I am still worried that it is something serious.

I hope she will be well soon ♥

Winterbreak

! ! ! W I N T E R B R E A K ! ! !

I apologize that I haven't gotten around blogging before now. This week has been a bit busy for me.

Monday I turned in an assignment (the SRO) that I have been working on since the end of January.
It was a pretty big one (well I think 8 pages is big when I have to work with one of my weakest subjects!) and I had been stressing a lot over it the weeks up to. I also had normal assignments that had to be turned in a few days before, on the day, the day after, etc.
Just thinking about it made me feel super stressed but I got through it! I. Got. Through it!
Monday was also a special day at school - in order to get out early, all the classes gathered up in the cafeteria and SANG until the principal let us go.

Tuesday I was supposed to go downtown after school to get a few things that I needed (some new earrings, a loofah, a chapstick, etc.) and my good friend Nanna decided to join <3
Although I usually prefer to go alone (since I don't have much time on my hands) I enjoyed her company. I bought a little bit of make-up and she asked me to do a haul so I will probably have post like that coming up soon. 

Wednesday I baked for Thursday. At school I'm part of this support group for a larger charity organization run by students from all over the country and one of the ways we earn money is through baking sales. The theme was Valentine's Day and, as I had expected, all the other girls showed up with cakes filled with hearts and stuff. Some girls from my friend group and I like to joke about us being forever alone cat ladies and stuff, so I thought I'd make a little joke out of it.
Mette's cake is the red one and mine is the bad replica of the grumpy cat meme.
A group had come over while we were still setting things up so they could be the first to get a piece of cake. As I unpacked mine, a girl realized what I had made and the entire group stopped what they were doing and just stood there admiring it. I measured where to cut and when I put the knife in it, a girl stood out from the crowd and the following conversation happened

Girl: "No! What are you doing!?"
Me: I stopped and looked at her dumbfounded ._. "Well, I need to cut it so we can sell it to you guys"
"Nooooo you are ruining it!"
"But.. I have to. Unless you'd want to buy the whole cake" (I said that as a joke)
...
and she did o.O
About an hour later, Nanna showed me that my cake had been made into a meme and put on Facebook. Since her profile was private I couldn't get the picture on here but I clearly remember the text: 
I WENT TO A BAKING SALE ONCE
IT WAS AWFUL
I do think they liked it though. We sold out after maybe 15 minutes~


Friday (today) my winter break started and I won't be back in school before February 17th!
Sunday I am going to fly to Sweden (alone! :OO) to visit a very special old friend of mine and I will stay there until Wednesday. After that, I will have sooo much time to work on my reviews and the upcoming haul.

How about you? Do you also have winter break now? If so, how are you going to spend it? ^o^
