a tree is nice

What Even Are Cats?

Me: I have got you two nice cat trees and you have over quarter of the sofa, not to mention probably all of my bed.

Molly The Cat: Yeah but! The inside of the sofa sounds like a good place to sit.

Molly The Cat: Human…. human…. HUMAN!

Me: What do you want?

Molly The Cat: HOW DARE YOU LOOK AT ME! *sassy tail flip*

Molly The Cat: You’ve been on the loo too long.

Me: Excuse, you?

Molly The Cat: *jumps and unlocks bathroom door from the outside.*

Me: Why?

Molly The Cat: Too long! *Pulls light cord on and off*

Me: *Brushes Teeh*

Molly The Cat: Human… No, this is not what you do with the stick… stop it silly thing *waves paw at me and chitters till i’m done*

Molly The Cat: Human… cat foot. *Sticks foot in my face*

Me: AWWWW toe beans!

Molly The Cat: DO not touch the toe beans! *Calmly removes foot from my face*

Molly The Cat: Human… cat foot. *Sticks foot in my face*

Me: AWWWW toe beans! Ima get your toe beans, tickle tickle *Tickles Molly’s foot*

Molly The Cat: *rolls around making a sound like laughing*

Molly The Cat: WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN! I had to sleep on the sofa on my own so I chewed all your chargers and pulled the table cloth off and made a huge mess!

Me: Can I come inside, you’re standing on my feet

Me: moves

Molly The Cat: Where you going?

Molly The Cat: *Does something cute*


Molly The Cat: oh crud

Molly The Cat: It’s 3am so I’m going to run really fast over you and round the house then get stuck trying to fit under the door.

Molly The Cat: The stairs are to high take me back up.

Molly The Cat: Do not question me human *Jumps on shoulder and almost falls off*

college student mark tuan
playlist: venus by sleeping at last

• studying mathematics and he’s in his fourth year
• probably going to go into accounting
• didn’t know what to do for the rest of his life, too many options
• he’s such a introverted person
• he only ever really hangs out with his friends
• goes to a couple of parties but for the most part is so chill and laid back
• skateboards around campus to get to his classes
• he also likes to take frequent naps underneath the big oak tree from time to time when the weather is nice
• his friends and him often eat at one of the cafeterias on campus, sometimes they’ll study together and other times it’s just them messing around
• girls love mark
• like they adore him
• he doesn’t really pay too much attention to it, in fact most of the time he just smiles politely and goes on his way
• the amount of girls who post pictures of him on twitter is insane
• but he promised his parents he’d focus school
• he really wants to make them proud it’s his main goal in life
• he can be such a goofy guy though, especially when he’s with his friends
• he met them at the basketball court for a game but he was running late since he ended up taking a nap
• of course he was on his skateboard and of course he was going fast and of course you just had to be walking in the opposite direction of him
• in order for you not to get hurt he had to fling himself off the skateboard
• you were so worried about him and felt so guilty since you should’ve been paying attention to where you were walking
• “are you okay? I’m so sorry.”
• he didn’t even know what to say, he was so in shock he just looked at you
• it took him a moment to realize you were talking to him
• “oh yeah I’m fine it’s okay.”
• you felt so bad you offered to pay him back with a coffee
• he was going to say no but you were so pretty and you looked so cute when you were worried so he agreed and together you two sat down for a coffee and talked
• he had totally forgotten about the basketball game, he just wanted to get to know you
• he didn’t waste any time to ask you out on a date, in fact it was two days later when he caught up with you one day after class and asked you out on a date
• he took you to a retro diner in the next city over
• after months of dating you guys were practically attached at the hip
• the boys loved you but also found it quite annoying whenever mark would ditch them for you
• “hey so my parents want you to come over for dinner.”
• you were a nervous wreck when you went to see his parents but they were so chill
• they both engulfed you in a hug and prepared such a nice dinner
• that was the night mark fell in love with you

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
