So finally time to answer Cee’squestions.
If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)
Oh wow, that sounds so fabulous! I’d share some amount with my immediate family, some amount I would use to help or just make happy some of my friends, maybe would also support some charities. Then I’d buy a brother for Misha and lots of toys and other stuff for them. Not like I crave so much for another cat, but Misha does very clearly. I’d probably buy myself a house, or at least a vacation house, somewhere in the British countryside. And the rest would most probably go to the bank.
In what do you find the simplest of joys?
Misha, his purring, hhrrruing, when he wants to be close with me, which isn’t so very often as he is a reserved creature, blogging and interacting with my readers, laughing at silly things with Zofijka, writing almost whatever, doing stuff with my languages, spending quality time with my Mum, writing with my online friends, reading interesting or funny books, listening to music, particularly my music crushes’, horse riding, developing any of my interests in any way, yummy food/drinks, any achievements in learning languages or in horse riding, sleeping.
What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?
Um, I always have a problem with presents. Whenever I need something small, I always buy it for myself, well I know the best what I want and no one knows me as well as I know myself. So then when people ask me what I want to get for birthday I just don’t know because I have everything I need. Currently there aren’t any things that I can’t get for myself that others could get me as a present. Well I would always appreciate anything that someone bought or made thinking about me and especially for me even just because of the effort they put in it, plus if they put so much effort in it usually it is something I just like because they know what I like.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Last week was very stressful for me because of the finals coming. On Thursday we had a little family gathering and it was very nice. On Friday I had to go to that school for the blind to write my finals there. I couldn’t sleep that night and we had to get up at 4 so it was an awful Zombie day. The exam itself went well though, or so I think, because I’ll get the result on 3rd July. Afterwards though there was a very unpleasant incident with the headmistress of that school who not only was incredibly rude to both me and my Mum, but also actually triggered me and the very stormy meeting with her brought memories to my brain of which I actually wasn’t aware before that I have such memories. This was very tough and left me very unsettled so that I couldn’t pick myself up for days, but my family was very supportive which I really appreciate, as well as the support of my friends. I am also glad that I wrote that exam, no matter what the outcome will be. The weekend was rough too, I was just blah and still very triggered, but had some nice time with my Mum and talked through lots of stuff we never talked about before. In some way I also appreciate what happened to me on Friday, because it opened my eyes that I’ve really come through some kind of trauma, which I desperately denied for years as well as I could, and as I said it let to me and my Mum discussing plenty of important things that were, and in some way still are, standing between us.
