A day from Leona’s life

Likely entry in Leona’s imaginary diary:

Hmm…is it 5am again? I think so. I wake up so early lately. It’s so dark. Am I still sleeping on the table? Oh, yes I do.

I’ll go to wake up human mommy’s parents to let me out. I want to run so much. And catch all those tasty mice and bugs. I like running so much.

Hello? I’m meow-ing here. Hellooooo? Oh, finally they woke up. I’m running to the door.

Yes! I’m out!

Hmm…where to go now? I’ll play with leaves. They are so funny.

Oh, I see bug. I’ll try to catch this bug. Oh, he ran away. I’ll try to catch him again. And again. Until I get bored.

Oh, I see light. It’s day already. How long was I running?

Human mommy’s brother is going out. I’ll sneak back to the house.

Yummy, crunchy. My human mommy always leaves me a lot for the night. Yummy, milk.

Uff…I’m full. I’ll go to sleep to cozy bed now.


Oh no, human mommy woke up. She will want to hug and kiss me. Hope she doesn’t carry me. I like this position now.

She only stroked me…uff! She is talking funny things always. Funny human.

What is this sound? Oh, human mommy opens the fridge! Run!

I like my human mommy. She gives me so tasty meat always. She shares her food with me too. She is a nice human.

Do I want to run now or sleep? I think I’ll sleep yet. I’ll go to see what human mommy is doing.

Hmm…she is watching tv. Good. I’ll sleep on the table again. I like table.

Oh, is it fridge again? Run! Oh no, I was wrong.

I’ll go outside now. Human mommy hugs and kisses me again. Why she just can’t let me out?

Finally, I’m out again. Oh, I like running so much.

What is this sound? Human mommy is looking for me. I’ll go home. Run!

Will she ever stop? I don’t like hugs and kisses.

Crunchy and milk again. Yummy.

I think I’ll go to run again.

Bugs are funny. I like to sneak and catch them.

Oh, human’s mommy parents are back.

Human mommy is looking for me. Yes! I’ll eat meat! Run!

Yes! I got meat! My human mommy spoils me. I like it.

I want to go out again. It’s so nice outside.

I’m tired. I ran so much today. It’s dark again. I’ll go to door and wait for human mommy to let me in.

Mmmm….I almost slept, but human mommy is checking on me. I’ll go home and sleep.

Where is she carrying me?

No, I don’t want to eat. I want to sleep.

I’ll wash myself and go to sleep on a chair. I like chair too.

Oh, I think I’ve slept for so long. I’ll eat and run again.

Human mommy? Where are you?

Oh, she is going. I’ll jump on her leg and then run to the door so she will understand.

Oh, I’m outside again! I think I’ll eat some mice. I’ll see do they run in the grass.

I’m sleepy again. It’s so dark now. And cold.

I’ll go to the door. Human mommy will check on me soon.

I was right. She just checked on me. Back at home.

Hmm…so warm. I think I’ll eat. Crunchy and milk. I like.

Where to sleep now? I’ll go to bed now. If human mommy’s brother is moving too much I’ll go to the table.

He is moving too much. I’m going to the table. It’s nice there and cozy.

What is this light?

Oh, it’s human mommy telling me good night.

Good night human mommy. I love you too.

Mmmm…sleep and then run again.

Well, I just realized my cat has more interesting life than I do!


I hate being ignored!

Someone tells me to talk to them whenever I want and when I do (once, twice, thrice), they don’t bother to reply. Why would they tell me this then?

In my opinion, it’s the greatest sign of disrespect. If I don’t want to talk to someone, they annoy me or piss me off- I tell them. I don’t tell people who I don’t like to talk to me whenever they want.

When I’m ignored, it wakes up the bitch in me. I really don’t like it.

I don’t understand why people can’t simply say ‘I don’t want to talk to you anymore’? Is it that hard? You don’t want to look like an asshole/bitch? Well, you DO look like an asshole/bitch when you are ignoring.

Instead of ignoring say straight you don’t want to talk to someone.




SLP#7: In the eyes of an online friend

For this week’s SLP post I asked an online friend to tell me how he sees me through our chats, what he thinks about me after all those years we know each other.

This is what he said:

You are an honest person who cares about her friends and doesn’t shy away from saying something unpleasant as you have their best interests at heart which makes you a valuable friend to have as God knows there are a lot sycophants who would rather please rather than tell the truth.

Sure it makes it risky for you as you might end up antagonising your friends, but in the end its worth it. With that said I believe you should ease up on yourself. You are a great person and you have to realize that. Belief in oneself and the ability to pick oneself up after being down are the keys to hopefulness if not happiness.

It’s still hard for me to believe such things, but I’m trying.


How to be Freshly Pressed?

I was always wondering what it takes to be Freshly Pressed.

I decided to think about ‘rules’ WordPress has created.

1. Write unique content that’s free of bad stuff.

Hmm… aren’t we? 98% of bloggers on WordPress write their own content free of plagiarism, adult content and hate speech.

2. Have a point of view.

In my opinion, WordPress is a ‘home’ for people who have their own opinions and points of view, people who are not afraid to speak their mind. All of us are like that.

3. Don’t be afraid of your voice.

I follow a lot of blogs and each of them is different and special. As for me, every person in the world is special and unique, so are bloggers in here.

4. Paint us a picture.

Most of blogs I had luck to stop by are online journals sharing special moments in lives. Most of pictures posted in the platform are unique photos made by blog owners.

5. Make it easy on the eyes.

I don’t remember seeing any blog which was hard to read. WordPress has a lot of clean and simple themes. Most of bloggers make their content look clear and easy to read.

6. Write a headline we can’t ignore.

It’s not always easy to write a headline to interest everyone. Some people will be intrigued by a specific headline and some won’t. It all depends on personal preferences. Both readers and writers, have their own interests, that’s why some people prefer simple headline, even one worded, and some people will prefer catchy, multi worded headline which is almost a summary of the post.

7. Aim for typo-free content.

I check my posts and headlines many times before I publish it. I’m sure many people do the same. Of course, typos happen, but it’s easy to fix.

What’s my opinion about them?

Honestly, I think only people who are perfect English speakers and have a funny, kind of odd, nature can be Freshly Pressed. I may be wrong, but that’s only my opinion.

I check Freshly Pressed posts from time to time and Daily Post’s ‘What makes a Post Freshly Press-able’ and I noticed people spotlighted there have a unique sense of humor. It’s great, but what about people who are not like this? Who are boring? Who don’t have a colorful imagination?

Also, what about people who are not perfect in English? Native English speakers have their own idioms, their own expressions. I think my English is pretty well. I’ve been learning and speaking it for like 14 years now, which means I speak it for most of my life. Still, I’m not native and I’m not sure if I ever be, unless I move to English speaking country. There I would be forced to speak and hear English 24/7. It will surround me on my every step. There is really low percent of non-English speakers who are perfect in English.

I find myself boring, simple English speaking and not too colorful thinking blogger. I guess this disqualify me as potential Freshly Pressed participant.


Black hole

Today my mind doesn’t think about anything. Totally nothing.

That’s strange, because I always think about something.

Even when I sleep my mind keeps working.

But today, it doesn’t. I try to make myself think, but I just can’t.

Actually, it’s a nice break. I can relax, enjoy this emptiness.

No stress, no feelings. It’s all good. It could happen more often.

Maybe then I could stay stress free at least for a little while.

It’s such a nice weather today, it’s sunny, kind of warm.

Perfect day for relax. Perfect day for doing nothing.




Since I make my master part time (I have classes every 2-3 weeks on weekend) I don’t like weekends.

For last 3 years weekend was a relax from Warsaw, at home with my cat. From Friday’s evening till Sunday’s afternoon. My life was in the city.

But now, since I didn’t find any job yet, I enjoy free weekdays. I like being almost alone (beside grandfather) for hald of the day watching tv without anyone screaming on my head in the morning/early afternoon and reading a book or watching serieses online in the late afternoon/evening.

Free weekends are so boring for me. I sit in my room all day watching shows online and reading book, but it gets boring after half of the day.

When I was spending only weekends at home, I could watch all shows I missed in the past week, read blogs I didn’t have time to check and play with my cat which I didn’t see for few days.

My life has become worse now. I could stay in Warsaw, but what would I do there? I can’t even watch tv there. I could meet a friend, but I can’t do it everyday for all day. She has her life too. I prefer being bored at home.

I miss those times when I was living in Warsaw and I visted home. Now I live at home and visit Warsaw and it’s driving me crazy!

Why am I so unlucky to find a job in Warsaw? Why?

I hope Santa will bring me a job as a Christmas gift, because I’m not sure how long I can stay sane, yet!
