While we’re on the subject of pets, here’s my kitty Moxxi! Named after the Borderlands character, Mad Moxxi, this little thing came into the world about a year ago now.

The second picture was the day after I got her. She was absolutely tiny and full of energy.

Now, when I lived in Oshawa, my two roommates were allergic to cats. (I made sure that it was okay with them before I got her)

So, I bathed her with hypoallergenic shampoo to help minimize the dander. The first picture is her a couple months after I had gotten her, post-bath.

You can also see my tattoo in the picture! I’ll make a post dedicated to that later though.

Funny story about my cat; when I was in Oshawa, the people who lived below me were crazy. And I mean crazy. Everyday they would scream at my window where Moxxi was sitting, saying how pretty she was, this little golden kitty. Now, that’s nice and all, except for this one night.

One night, they were all drunk and stoned, and they started talking about kidnapping my cat, who was sitting in the windowsill. I figured that they were joking because who in their right mind would steal someone’s cat while they are clearly at home or in the same room.

But, they had something really tall, as I was a story above them, with a knife attached to it. They then proceeded to cut my window’s screen open where my cat was. When I heard the ripping noise, I pulled her away and shut the window, but it was terrifying.

Here’s a picture of the damage that they did,

This is my fish, Loki.

He’s a sassy little thing , but he’s pretty gentle.

The first picture was at my place in Oshawa. There was a beautiful sunset and the way it went through the water in the tank just stunned me.

In the second picture, it just shows off his colours. When I first got Loki, he looked black, fully black. However, after having him for a couple of days , he soon turned a turquoise and red mixture that is just beautiful. I also love how in the second picture, you can even see his individual scales if you look closely enough.

Is Canada Addicted to the Internet?

Is Canada Addicted to the Internet?

Four out of five households in Canada have access to the World Wide Web, according to Statistics Canada. Of those four households, almost 70% connect to the Internet with more than one device including laptops, desktops, gaming consoles, and mobile devices.

“The internet is basically half or more of the opportunities for everything in life,” Ryan Coppa, a student who was interviewed in a recent streeter, believes that everyone needs access to the Internet. They risk being put under the radar and in this day and age, it can be vital for anyone.

Of the five students that were interviewed, they all agreed on the same idea that although the Internet “has become the base of communication, marketing, shopping, etc.,” it still connects families, friends, and people in general.

“Today’s generation lives and breathes the Internet,” another student that was interviewed in the streeter, Adam Hong, believes that although the Internet can have its perks, the world is quickly becoming engulfed in it.

Social Media is the Future?

This may be the fact for up-and-coming journalists. According to Ken Pearson, Digital Content Manager for Metroland’s Durham Division, the popularity of social media with news companies has been more than helpful to them.

With the ease of social media at our fingertips, it has never been easier to get information and breaking news to people.  Pearson says “we want to make people feel connected,” and makes a point to say that it’s just that much easier to do when it’s online.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest are all apart of the news companies now, spreading word of breaking news faster than ever.

This lovely group of boys are apart of Calamity.

A League of Legends crew, well on their way to Major League Gaming, attended the fifth Lan War at Durham College and UOIT this past weekend.

They came in second out of the hundreds of gamers in the League of Legends tournament.

Super proud of these boys, they did awesome! And the shirts are made by a mutual friend and one of my models, Shailynn.
