My stage name is MC Cat.

Check out a verse from my latest hit, "Diorama":

          In the day I ride llamas,
          It's such a trauma, they made it into a drama.
          At night, I sleep in pajamas.
          Uh, uh, uh. MC CAT!

Anyways, I was scrolling through some fashion editorials, and I see this:

Something seemed really strange about the title, Pyjama Party, but I couldn't quite pin it.  After a while (I won't say how long hehe), I realized it was the spelling of Pyjama.  I was pretty sure it was Pajama, but I had to google it just to make sure.

But as I was typing in pajama, the word looked even weirder.  Like it was some type of squash or gourd, not a piece of clothing.

After some research (from trusted scholarly articles, of course), I found out that it's pyjama in the UK, and pajama in the US.  Fun fact of the day!  Also, the word comes from the Persian word پايجامه if you are curious.  Feel free to cite me as a source.  I am a trusted site hehhehe

Thoughts from a hungry college student who is sitting in front of her laptop at 3:31 AM in the cold dark dorm room

Listening to F.I.R., I wish I could be living in a Fairyland in Reality right now.  Sadly, I live in a place (a dorm) where school dominates along with his possy of labs and exams.

I really want to just not care.  To be free from all the due dates of labs.  Exams.  Finals.

And at times (more frequently now), I just don't give a shit.  I end up reading The Hunger Games or watching YouTube live performances when I know I have a 813764-page lab due and an exam the next day.  But I read and watch without a care in the world, until my conscience kicks in at midnight and tells me to work.  FUCK YOU, CONSCIENCE.

My conscience is a lot stronger during the wee hours of the night (maybe because I am most weak at this point because I haven't eaten in 813764 hours haha), so I end up working.  But with such limited time, plus the fact that I can't think properly at such late hours, there's really not much I can do to make up for the past 813764 hours of not caring.

So in the end, I'm stuck with a mediocre grade when I know that I could have:

  • Tried harder & earlier and gotten a better result.

Or, my favorite:

  • Just given up and not tried at all, and spent my time doing something more fun (e.g. reading The Hunger Games or watching my YouTube vids)

BUT NO!  I CANNOT MAKE UP MY FUCKING MIND.  I keep switching between caring and not caring and it's really screwing with my head.

I wish school would just end now.

BUT NO!  24 more of these lovely days ❤

The Pros (and some Cons) of Living in Pebble Beach

...from an outsider's perspective.

I recently made a trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea, California to drive through the tourist-y 17-mile drive along Pebble Beach.

And there, I saw houses.  (Wow, good job Cathy!)  But when I see a community of houses, I usually also see them as prospective homes.

So I made a list of the Pros of living at Pebble Beach, along with some seemingly random Cons:

1.) The name

You have to admit, it's a pretty cool name: Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.

But imagine if you were in elementary school taking the STAR Test and you had to bubble in your address on the scantron.  HAHA that would be a bitch.

2.) ......I'll use a picture to display this one:


HAHAHHAA that was the first thing I thought of when I saw the birds.

But then I realized the white bird was standing on top of the table while the black bird was on the dirt.  Hmm...

3.)  The cute, fluffy, adorable animals!

But these cute little things are also fearless warriors who expect you to give them food, and they're willing to wage war against you if you don't. 

I mean, look at General Squirrel staring me down.  But I didn't give him food because I love General Squirrel and I would be hurting him if I did.

I asked my dad to take this next picture...

Seriously dad, wtf is this... Why am I blurry, and why is the BIRD in focus and in the center of the pic?!  You think that's one mighty fine crow, huh?

And also, WHY ARE MY EYES SO SMALL ;____________;
I swear they're not that small in real life! Or maybe I'm just blinded from the truth (haha)

This picture is funny and disgusting at the same time, so I really don't know what to do with it.

Anyways, continuing on the list...

4.) Blue + silver fire hydrants

5.)  Famous trees
The Lone Cypress tree

Remains of the Ghost/Witch Tree

6.)  The view

My god, the water was SO BLUE!  It was seriously the blue-est water I've ever seen in my life (besides blueberry gatorade, which is so fucking scary).

Everything was super pretty!  So I've decided that I wouldn't mind living at Pebble Beach.

Except the houses are like $$$$$$$$$$$$  ;___________;

The Big Bang!

Supernovas + protons + space stuff + blah blah blah
And then there was LAFFY CATHY!
Greetings!  If you're reading this, then you are quite amazing!  Out of all the blogs that exist in the world, you've found my little playground.  This isn't my first time in the blogging world, but this is my first personal blog.

I actually made this blog a few days? weeks? ago, but it's just been sitting here like a neglected dog...looked at frequently, but never fed.  (Before someone gets some crazy idea that I'm an animal abuser....I have to say that I LOVE DOGS! especially corgis hehe)  

Anyways, I've post-poned this first post for as long as post-ible (hehe) because I honestly dreaded it.  OOOH THE FEAR~  No, just kidding.  But I felt like I had to write some grand post to impress the world wide web, which is essentially the WHOLE WIDE WORLD.  And that just seemed impossible.

So I came to the conclusion that I won't put all these expectations on myself, especially since I have enough of that in my life.  And also because when I did that for tumblr (subconsciously), it didn't work out too well...

You see, I used to update my tumblr EVERY SINGLE DAY (wow!) and practically every hour I was on the computer (wow x 100!).  But then I realized I was posting to please the people of tumblr who I didn't even know.  Of course, this wasn't good because I was filtering out my pictures....excessively.  As in I was pretty much filtering myself out.  So I stopped posting as frequently.

I mean, look at these stats:
455 posts in Dec 2009
31 posts in March 2012

HAHHAA okay, laziness may have been another factor, but the outcome is still the same.  My tumblr has since tumbled down into the deep abyss of the ocean where cute little fishes with waterproof mascara live...


Well, kinda.  I still post when I feel like it, but it's nowhere near as active as its peak years.  If you would like to explore more of my tumblr, it's here.  I try not to filter as much now :D

But enough about my tumblr!  
          I have my own personal blog now!  
                    And I don't need to filter!  
                              So I won't!  
                                        At last, the world is at peace!  

Well, my world at least.  Here, I'll blog about myself and all kinds of stuff I find/see/like/dislike.  

Anyways, I spent the past hour making this gif.  Here's me being bored. 


Which reminds me, feel free to comment!  Because I guarantee you that I will read every single comment.

Now if you've made it to the end of this post, congrats!  You don't have ADD =)
If not, then..maybe you should go see a doctor.  LOL kidding, hopefully you'll like my next post more.
