It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.

Amazing.

EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.

this is pretty remarkable

you would literally not believe how excited I was to see this guy, I was busy having a serious conversation with my friends and then, mid-sentence, squeaked loudly and dashed out to get a picture
WHAT GREAT COLOURS, WHAT A GREAT COSPLAY
if this was you, please let me know, because you made my weekend! :D

I don’t know if anyone said this already but the cosplayer is Vilya, and she’s awesome!

How to Cope with anxiety when Starting University

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. Accept that it is normal, and something you’d expect.
2. Talk about your feelings with someone you know well. Don’t bury how you feel and pretend that you’re OK.
3. Look after yourself – get plenty of sleep, take time for exercise, and make sure you eat well.
4. Ask when you’re confused, or uncertain, or need help. Usually others are quite happy to help you at this time.
5. Accept that it is takes time to make some friends when you are new. But others feel the same – and they want to make friends, too.
6. Don’t expect to feel comfortable within the first few weeks. It’s a whole different world and there’s so much to learn.
7. Remember you’ve made changes and have done new things before. You can cope and survive – so just be patient with yourself.
