It’s been a year since the first day my cat, Vanilla, showed up in our backyard. Sadly, she never came back one night after going out for an adventure. We don’t know where she is or what may have happened to her but I still have hope and believe that she’s alive and one day she’ll find us and return, but if she doesn’t come back then I’m happy that we gave her a good life while she was with us and no matter what she’ll always be in my heart because she will always be part of our family. To remember her, I want to dedicate this post to her.

Vanilla,
You were the youngest kitten that we ever adopted. Early in the morning on July 31, 2011, Harry Potter’s birthday, the sun was not out yet and I was woken by the sound of a baby kitten meowing at my bedroom window. Not recognizing the voice, I peeked out the window and saw a small kitten behind our trash can. The darkness did not make the kitten invisible, it was all the opposite, the kitten was so white and her eyes were bright blue and could be seen from miles away, like a glow-in-the-dark kitten. She was a small Siamese cat, she had a small, brown spot around her eyes and nose that made her look like she was wearing a mask and we later said that she was wearing a burglar’s mask because she would steal our socks! I named that small kitten Vanilla and, at first, we thought about giving her in adoption but we decided not to after seeing how our other cats were close to her and we were very close on her too. Although she did not look like any of our other cats, because they were black, that didn’t matter to any of us, she had now joined our family. She grew and turned out to be a very fluffy, short, playful kitten and we later gave her a lot of nicknames like Cappuccino, Vanilla Cappuccino, Little Burglar, The Doctor’s Kitten, The Magical Kitten, The One Who Fell From The Sky, Glow-In-The-Dark Kitten, The Vampire Cat That Sparkles In The Sun And Night, Green Lantern Cat, Nila, but none of those ever took away her true name. We grew up together for eight months which were the best eight months of my life, I never knew that life could be filled with so much light until you came. It was the third week of March 2012 and Princess’ kittens were just a blink of an eye away from being born. On March 22, 2012 was the last day we ever saw you. No one ever expected what was going to happen when we awoke the next day. March 23, 2012, you didn’t come back from your daily walk around the neighborhood. We searched for you during three months and heard many rumors about people finding small Siamese cats with bad injuries and many worse stories we were told and didn’t know what to believe, all we wanted was our little kitten to come back home. The day scheduled for moving to another house was getting near and near and still no sign of you, only rumors, but those rumors won’t heal the sadness I feel knowing that sadly we couldn’t find you. During three months we never gave up, during three months we never slept, during three months we searched for you, during three months our days were and still are filled with sadness, every moment you’re not here is painful and hard. But I don’t want you to remember us by being sad, I want you to remember the great times we had together, when we played, when we ran, when we chased bugs, when I used to tickle your tummy, when we used to go out and sing in the rain because you weren’t like the others you were unique you could overcome your fears, you were brave, you were strong, you were lovely and had a lot of love in your heart. I don’t want you to remember me for crying for you, I want you to remember me for taking care of you for the first eight months of your life and for loving you because that’s what matters and that’s the only thing that will always matter. You joined our family and you will never leave it no matter where you are, you’re in my heart, you’ll always be remembered for the brave cat you are, you’ll always be loved by us, you’ll always be part of my life, you’ll always be our family. Wherever you are, please remember us and I promise that we’ll never leave you and never forget you. We will always remember you! Be happy!

♥Happy 1st Birthday Vanilla!♥

I only have 3 weeks left of Summer Vacations! =( Well, I guess I’ve had a lot of weeks of vacations this year, I got out on June 8 and that’s very early in my country, we usually get out until July!

Movies have made my vacations be very fun. Last week I went to watch Brave and The Dark Knight Rises. Brave was very different from other Disney princess movies, I liked this one better than the others. The Dark Knight Rises lasted 3 hours! Sitting down so long made my legs hurt and it was really cold in the movie theater, but it was worth it! I spent 1 hour eating some popcorn, jelly beans and chocolate =P and the rest of the movie was so interesting that not even some little kids in there were talking! You mustn’t even blink during the movie or you’ll miss the best parts!

The countdown begins, my last Dream Studio project for this year shall be released within a few hours, my new projects will begin, and another school year is about to begin. 8th grade! =O Today was the first audition for my new video, and sadly no one showed up =/ Hopefully someone shows up on the next audition. If I don’t get enough penguins to help me, the video will have to be canceled or moved to be released in another year =(

Enjoy your last days of Summer vacations while you still can! :D

This is the very first video where I will be using a camera instead of screenshots to make this film!

Yesterday (well, today at 12 in the morning in London) was the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony. In London, they celebrated this early in the morning by ringing every single bell they could find!

Then, they opened the Olympics with a performance of the UK’s history. But my favorite part was this (even though I barely noticed it):

That’s right! The Doctor was at the Opening Ceremony! Sadly, he had to cross his own timeline to prevent himself from carrying the torch =( to save his dear friend, Donna Noble. (Who’s Doctor Who? Find out!)

I was too distracted listening and dancin’ to the music that I didn’t notice this sound, only the strange feeling of remembering Doctor Who at that exact moment for no reason, well now I do have a reason =P

The ceremony ended with 7 children (or teenagers) carrying their torch to light up the Olympic Flames and begin the Olympics 2012!

This was a lovely surprise! I think no one expected this to happen! It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! With the Olympic Flame lighted, I think there is only one thing left to say: Let the games begin!
