Internship Life

Working in the coroner’s office has a way of making you face mortality. There are just so many ways to die, and to be confronted with it on a daily basis is a hard thing to do.

I wish I could say it gets easier but it doesn’t.

I’m lucky enough to have a great support system, and to be around people that do the exact same as me. The one thing that this internship has forced me to do is find humor again because you need humor in order to do a job like this. 

There is also something to be said when you actual hold a human heart in your hands, or pretty much any organ to be honest. The contrast of each organ which each other, and to see it all actually fit in the human body is kinda weird.  

My internship ends in December and it is an experience I can say that I won’t forget. 

15 reasons for 15 years!

So recently I celebrated 15 years together with my husband. It’s sort of astonishing that I have spent almost half my life with this man, but I would not change it for almost anything in the world. I decided to put together 15 reasons why our relationship works in honor of this occasion

  1. I am not afraid to tell him how much I weigh
  2. We can make each other laugh
  3. We tease each other all the time
  4. We cook together
  5. We give each other space
  6. We understand the need to make ourselves happy
  7. If something is bothering us we talk about it
  8. We accept the good and the bad
  9. We talk about everything
  10. Trust
  11. We find each other attractive
  12. We give each other our honest opinions
  13. We give and take
  14. Admit when we are wrong
  15. Understand that we are not perfect

Lifestyle: Cheeto is tongue tied

Cheetos is an unusual cat. Not only does she have constant energy, but she sounds like a motor when she purrs. Another thing that makes her stand out from any of the other cats I have had before is that she likes to sleep with her tongue out. I’ve never had a cat that has done that before.

Lifestyle: Introducing Aurelian

Auri is the youngest of the Bunch. She still has that puppy energy, which mommy and daddy try to wear out before bedtime. Auri loves to chew everything in her path so footwear, wires, and furniture needs to be protected around her.

Auri does not have long hair like Tesla so so does not require as much grooming. She has been healthy since we have gotten her and hopefully it stays that way for a long time.  

Auri likes to think she gets along with everyone, but is quickly starting to learn that she is the low dog on the totem pole. Mordechai tolerates her, Tesla will play with her and Cheeto tries to bully her. We shall see how this all plays out!

Lifestyle: Introducing Cheeto

Cheeto is a princess in her daddy’s eyes, to everyone else she is a bit of a troublemaker. Energetic and loving Cheeto loves to play, eat and cuddy. She purrs so low you can hear it from across the room, it sounds like a little motor boat. 

Cheeto is long haired just like Mordechai, but unlike Mordechai, Cheeto is a neat freak. She is constantly trying to clean everyone and everything, I feel like she is constantly judging me about cleanliness. Cheeto is also a perfectly healthy cat!

Cheeto acts like a princess around everyone, her favorite person is her daddy. She doesn’t let anyone push her around and bullies Auri any chance she gets. Mordechai doesn’t let her get away with it thought and will clop her one if she gets too out of hand. 

Health: Weigh me down

Something has gotta change, and that is me. I know I have been saying this for a while but I need to lose weight. I stepped on the scale the other day and I really did not like what I saw, and it is no ones excuse but my own. I have also been noticing a change in my body that I really do not like. 

I keep saying this, but I am in my thirties, I can’t keep doing this to my self and If I want to live a long happy life I need to start taking measures to make sure that happens. I’ve set a couple of easy goals for myself and make sure I develop healthy habits and routines

  1. Drink More Water
  2. Loose 5 pounds
  3. Absolutely no “Fast Food”
  4. Eat more Greens
  5. Be Active at least a Half an hour a day.

Hopefully with these goals I can see improvements. Once these goals are met I can expand upon them and create more easy goals to reach my most important one!

Lifestyle: Introducing Tesla

Tesla is our lovable cuddly bear. I’ve mentioned her a couple of times before and she is nothing but an absolute doll. 

While being a total cuddle bug, she loves to play more than anything. Her favorite games are Tug of War and Keep away. Her stamina is not the best but her adorable personality makes up for it.

Tesla hates baths, but she behaves at the groomers. She gets groomed every couple of months and looks like a brand new dog after.

We learned at a very young age, with Tesla that she suffers from a variety of allergies. She cannot eat any poultry, grains or really anything good.  She is also allergic to grass…

Tesla has one dog sister and two cat siblings whom she adores. Her eldest sibling Mordechai, does not play as much as she likes, but she doesn’t mind. Cheeto, on the other hand, loves playing and Usually takes Tesla on a wild goose chase. Auri is a bit hyper with Tesla, but Tesla is learning how to play with Auri
