20 Things I Have Learned As A New Cat Mom
Tessa Lebo

I thought I knew what it would be like to have a cat of my own, but I didn't know the half of it. My cat surprises me every day and I couldn't be more than thankful that I found him, even though he is a handful. This is what I have learned on my cat mom journey so far.

1. They will wake up as soon as the sun rises and they want you up too. 

2. Once you give them wet cat food they will beg for it everyday around the same time.

3. Your room forever smells like kitty litter now. Accept it. 

4. Keep a candle by the litter box for when they drop #2. 

5. They will be just as fascinated with a cardboard box or paper bag than with an expensive toy. 

6. Hide anything in your room that looks even a little like a toy or it will be played with. 

7. Keep plants protected or they will be eaten or destroyed. 

8. Your days of peeing alone are over. 

9. Don't move under the blankets (Especially your feet) or you will be attacked. 

10. Any food or water left out will be tasted by them. 

11. Anything can be a toy if you try hard enough. 

12. Cats won't automatically love you like dogs. You have to work for it. 

13. "My food bowl is empty!" *Food lines the bottom of the bowl*

14. They don't like when you're too clingy. Let them come to you. 

15. Get scratching posts so they don't ruin furniture. 

16. They will always win the staring contest. 

17. They are very nocturnal. 

18. You will have scratches all over your arms. 

19. Expect them to chirp back at birds through the window. 

20. You will never love anything more in your life.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

11878

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.

The last few years of my life have been a rollercoaster. At this time three years ago, I received my first of many diagnoses: Crohn's disease. Then, not too long after that, I was told I had hypertension due to a condition I have called kidney dysplasia. Around February of the next year, I found out that I had developed Lupus as a result of the medicine I was on to treat my Crohn's disease.
