Astrid from Blogging Astrid
, Realities from

. The 7 facts about me:
I love olives.
I had a cat before Misha named Kiki. He wasn’t officially mine as Misha is because my parents bought him, I don’t remember him very well as I was at the boarding school most of the time then, but I wasn’t very emotionally close to him.
3. I don’t like cosmetics smelling like food.
4. I have about 15 km to the seaside.
5. When I was born, there was a massive storm or other weather phenomenon, anyway our house was out of electricity, hence my Dad says I got used to the darkness and hence I can’t see. 😀
6. I don’t want to have children, but because I love names I like naming or helping with naming other people’s kids or playing baby name games.
7. I am a night owl.
Today I was tagged by absolutely great Carol Anne who blogs at Therapy Bits
to do the TMI tag. Here goes:
What are you currently wearing?
I got out of the shower a few minutes ago and now I’m in my pj’s and dressing gown.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE?
Yes, multiple times.
DID YOU EVER HAD A TERRIBLE BREAKUP?
HOW OLD ARE YOU?
HOW TALL ARE YOU?
168 cm, or 5 feet 6 inches.
HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH?
45 kg, 7,09 stone.
DO YOU HAVE ANY PIERCINGS?
DO YOU HAVE ANY TATTOOS?
None, I’d like to have one, but don’t have any creative ideas as for now.
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE DRINK?
Mm, I like many things, but let’s pick kefir. I love kefir.
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE SONG?
Again, very many, but currently I’ve listened a lot to “Olivia” by Canyon City and it has somehow stuck in my head.
WHATS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO SHOWER?
Now, as I know I have skin issues and they get worse when I take longer showers, it is very quickly, like three minutes, max five, but I used to take pretty long showers before, even like 20 minutes. Although I’ve never measured the time precisely. 😀
whats favorite show?
I don’t watch a lot of TV so don’t really have any very favourite shows.
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE BAND?
As for now, Plu, I think, is my most favourite, but I have many bands I love.
SOMETHING YOU REALLY MISS?
My best friend, well now I don’t know if he still is my best friend as he suddenly stopped writing back to me or contacting me and it lasts this way for quite a long time but I still miss him, but stopped trying to contact him as whatever is the reason, he certainly doesn’t want to talk to me anymore and being optrusive is what I dislike the most in people and wouldn’t like in myself as I know how pissing off it can be.
WHERE DO YOU GO WHEN YOURE SAD?
To my room.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO GET READY IN THE MORNING?
Depends on my mood and what I have to do. When I’m going somewhere or someone is coming to me, it’s no more than 20 minutes I think, but if I don’t have any plans, it can be even half an hour or if I’m very depressed then even more.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A PHYSICAL FIGHT?
Many times with my siblings. 😀 But nothing too serious.
WHAT TURNS YOU ON?
Sense of humour, intelligence, people named Jack or Jacek, people speaking my favourite languages, many things, too many maybe. 😀

WHATS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?
Black, white, grey, blue, green. And silver.
LOUD MUSIC OR SOFT?
When I’m low, I usually listen to loud music, some rock or metal or Gothic stuff sometimes, I also like to listen to loud music when I’m very happy. But when I’m not toolow I mostly listen to soft music, or when I’m anxious.
“If you can sit in silence with a person for half an hour and yet be entirely comfortable, you and that person can be friends. If you cannot, friends you’ll never be and you need not waste time in trying” L. M. Montgomery “Blue Castle”.
My previous musical crush Cornelis Vreeswijk played also in a few films, so I choose him, or a Swedish actress Catrine Lundell whom I really admire because she’s an actress despite suffering from chronic and rare disease and in my opinion she plays really well.
DO YOU HAVE ANY FEARS? WHAT THEY ARE?
I could make a whole list of fears, and I might, just to see how many pages it will have. 😀 To mention a few: anything related to vomiting, interactions with people, heights, wasps, crowds, very large, open spaces, some speciffic sounds and (in some circumstances) silence.
WHATS THE LAST THING THAT MADE YOU CRY?
Being simply overloaded by difficult emotions on my birthday, so a month ago.
MEANING BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
My Inner MishMash relates to my cat’s name Misha and also to the fact that I always have a total mishmash of thoughts, ideas and emotions in my head, but this mishmash is my inner so usually you can feel more or less awarded if you get access to it 😀 and I like the word mishmash. As for “what plays in my brain” it’s a paraphrase of a Polish idiom which literally goes like “what plays in ones soul”. If someone asks you to tell them what plays in your soul, they encourage you to confide in them. I am very interested in human brain and all about it, hence “brain”, plus this blog is a place for me where I can write down my thoughts and feelings, and also share with you my favourite music, as music “plays in my brain” almost constantly.
LAST TIME YOU SAID YOU LOVED SOMEONE?
To Misha, about ten minutes ago.
LAST BOOK YOU READ?
“War Of Love” by Aleksander Fredro, my obligatory reading for school.
THE BOOK YOURE CURRENTLY READING?
“Treasures Of The Snow” by Patricia St. John.
LAST SHOW YOU WATCHED?
Mmm too long ago to remember. 😀
LAST PLACE YOU WERE?
LAST SPORT YOU PLAYED?
Horse riding two months ago.
WHOS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO?
LAST SONG YOU SANG?
Agnes Obel’s “River Side”.
aFAVORITE CHAT UP LINE?
Don’t have one. 😀
DO YOU HAVE A CRUSH.
I’ve had lots of very intensive crushes and so called musical crushes, as for now I don’t have any crush that I know in real life, but I have a musical crush called Gwilym Bowen Rhys and it is also a very intensive crush.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND THE PERSON YOU LAST TEXTED?
PLACE YOU WANT TO VISIT?
Sweden once again, UK, Ireland, Finland, Netherlands, Faroe Islands.
WHATS THE LAST TIME YOU KISSED SOMEONe?
Misha about 15 minutes ago.
LAST TIME YOU WERE INSULTED?
Can’t remember really. 😀
FAVORITE FLAVOR OF SWEET?
Chocolate I think. But it really depends what kind of sweet stuff it is.
WHAT INSTRUMENT DO YOU PLAY?
I’ve played piano at school and learned guitar for a while but didn’t play for ages and don’t think I remember anything from that. I feel much better as a listener than creator of music and I didn’t like the pressure on music we had at school but now I think it wasn’t that bad because I know something more about music than an average person can know which helps me in understanding and valuing it. I don’t know as much as fully musically educated person as I didn’t finish music school, but was attending to it for a couple years which gave me some understanding of things.
FAVORITE PIECE OF JEWELRY?
My ring made of agate.
LAST TIME YOU HUNG OUT WITH ANYONE?
IRL it had to be very long ago, as I can’t remember. 😀
I tag just anyone who’d like to participate. :
What is the most important goal every person should have?
I think such goal could be to love ourselves. ‘Cause when we love ourselves, we automatically become better and more loving and caring to all the other beings in the world, thus making the life easier for all of us.
What do you think? What should such goal be in your opinion?
Today I share with you another version of this fabulous song – “Grimasch Om Morgonen” – written and originally performed by Cornelis Vreeswijk. This is a cover made by Swedish singer Pugh Rogefeldt.
I’m really starting to wonder about taking photos of all the stones in my collection and putting them here. It would take a lot of time and obviously I would need someone else to involve in it and take the pictures, but I think it could be a good idea. What do you think?
My Mum wanted to make me a surprise and bought me some more stones which are really beautiful. They are standing on my window and everyone says they look brilliant in the sun. It’s very snowy here recently, but also the sun is shining a lot so they have great conditions to present themselves. I am really happy I got so many new stones recently. I plan to go to the Festival Of Minerals which will be sometime in August in Silesia. I’d love someone acquainted to take a look at my collection and tell me whether all of these stones are really natural and I’d love to take a look at some minerals I’ve never seen before.
As for other things, yesterday I had an intensive Welsh day, well I’ve heard of people having much more intensive days, but it was the most intensive Welsh day I’ve ever had, because I did 5 challenges during one day. My brain felt drained, but, in contrast to the brain drainage I always get when I have Maths, that one felt really good and I felt glad and proud of myself, not depressed and tired as I usually am after my Maths lessons, simply because my achievements were much much bigger. I decided to praise myself for that and when we were going for a walk with my Mum, we also went to the grocery shop as she needed some vegs and I bought myself a chocolate with nuts which is really yummy. We had a really long walk which I definitely needed after all that brain fitness and which felt very refreshing, and my leg didn’t go as crazy as it did recently, I think it’s healing and going better, slowly, but surely. I can’t wait when I’ll be able to go horse riding finally, gosh I didn’t ride for TWO MONTHS! My horse will forget me! 😀 No, seriously I don’t think he will, I had a few years break time years ago and he seemed like he remembered me. 😀
Today I went to my GP in the morning, as he finally came back from vacation. I decided I will listen to my therapist’s suggestion and will ask him to prescribe me Afobam again. Also I asked him for some more Hydroxizinum as I was running out of it and then picked my prescription along with that from the dermatologist I got on Thursday.
I did some more Welsh today too.
I just had a very yummy dinner, pasta with Napoli sauce. Dad and Olek are both at work, so we don’t necessarily have to have some meat. They must always have meat for dinner, but not me and my Mum, so always when they’re not at home, we have something we like and Zofijka usually likes it too, or she eats at school.
Today I also helped Zofijka with her English homework a bit, but it only led to both of us being frustrated. Zofijka is very hard to teach, it is difficult for her to focus and she hardly ever listens what you tell her and doesn’t really get English and I am not really good at explaining language stuff to people and the last thing I’m good at is teaching anyone anything, but since as for now she doesn’t have any English lessons besides school as she used to have, I try to help her as it’s at least something.
What do a lot of parents do that screws up their kid?
The thing I hate that quite a lot of parents do to their kids is diminishing their problems. Like, a kid comes to them, trusts them and wants to share with them whatever is on their mind, something more or less difficult they feel like they need some support with coming through. And the parent’s reaction is like: “These aren’t problems. You’re just a child, you don’t have serious problems. You’ll start real life and you’ll see what problems really are”. That discourages most kids from confiding in their parents and makes them feel like their struggles aren’t important to their parents and don’t really deserve any attention. Plus, another thing is, so when does “the real life” start? When you get married? Divorced? After you’re 50? 😀 I’m really curious.
Another thing that pisses me off a bit every time I see it is when a child tells the parent about whatever is happening in their life and the parent doesn’t really listen but only wants to give advice, no matter if the child wants it or not.
What are your answers and what do you think about it?
