Yummy treats.

Hhrrru? 😻

This is Misha. A very sleepy Misha. I’m mostly sleeping today cus nothing is really happening. THe peeps are all doing their own business so I am doing mine – sleeping. But there was something this week that I really liked. Zofijka went shopping with her friend yesterday, and she bought me lots and lots of snacks. And now she gives them to me very often and I am happy and purring. I love treats, who doesn’t? The ones Zofijka’s been giving me now are with chicken and cheese, they’re delicious! And there are others too but she wants me to finish them. They say I must deserve my treats but in fact there isn’t much I have to do. Just purr a bit or say hhrrru? or just look nicely or something, sometimes I don’t try at all, but they for example think that I am sitting very cutely and then I get a treat. Isn’t that funny? I wonder whether all pets have it like this, but I guess I’m just lucky, as they always say. Everyone gives me treats and buys me gifts and wants to cuddle with me and play with me and sleep with me. I should feel happy. But sometimes it’s a little annoying and I’d rather be on my own. OK, I’m getting sleepy again, so I’ll be leaving.

I hope you all pets and peeps are having a nice day. πŸ™‚

Mishpurrs. πŸ’œ

Question of the day.

What was the first book you read?

My answer:

The first small book I read was “God And Mouse” by Angela Toigo. When my class had just learnt the whole alphabet we had an outing to the library and we were showed around and stuff and at the end everyone of us drew one of the small children’s books to read during the week. I drew “God And Mouse”, and it was like very small. I didn’t actually enjoy it that much, I found it rather boring, but I finished it in one day straight after school and I remember everyone being so very surprised. πŸ˜€ Probably because the rest of my class didn’t even start theirs yet hahaha. But I loved reading and could read relatively fast so that wasn’t much of a problem for me despite the book was boring, the problem was I wanted something more interesting to read. πŸ˜€ But that wasn’t that very important. The first book I read that I count as first, and that was really a book and something I did enjoy, was “The Six Bullerby Children” by Astrid Lindgren, which is what first made me love Sweden and Swedish language and Swedes. My Mum read this book to me countless times before I even started to learn to read so I already knew some parts of it by heart and I loved it, but I really really wanted to read it myself. It was more difficult as this is a bigger book, and took me much more time, but I really enjoyed it a lot. And since then I reread it many times, the last time was when it was a compulsory reading for Zofijka, and Zofijka is much less keen on reading than I was at her age, and was moaning how she doesn’t want to read it and doing nothing about it, so finally, not wanting to hear her whining anymore I just got pissed off and read it to her. Maybe not very pedagogical thing to do but I am not a teacher nor a parent and am not going to be either as long as it is up to me haha so I don’t really care, and we both had fun, and at least she managed to “read” it on time.

How about you? Did you enjoy it? πŸ™‚

Question of the day.

Name one way in which you were proud of yourself this week and one way in which you were disappointed in yourself?

My answer:

The thing I’m proud of is that I’d just finished another level of my Welsh course, yay! I’m doing two courses at the same time, I have only five challenges to do ofone of them so far, and of this one of which I’d just finished a level I have only one level left yet. Then I’ll be able to focus on some more advanced stuff. I’m really proud of myself today because of it.

And disappointed, well, luckily no big disappointments this week so far, but I’m a bit frustrated with myself still that I can’t seem to finish any Vreeswijk translation, I’m trying to finish something since his birthday, because as I mentioned in some earlier posts I tend to be able to write some of the translation and then get stuck with something and don’t know how to get out of it, how to finish, sometimes is just a very small detail that I don’t know how to handle in the translation, and I have lots and lots of poems and songs that I started to translate but don’t know how to finish. Or sometimes I just start to write and then realise it doesn’t really look the best, but I have no idea how I could improve it, so as a result I’m just deleting what I’ve done so far but not doing anything instead. And, unfortunately, since his birthday, I haven’t been able to complete any translation, despite I really wanted to and looked forward to it, that’s rather discouraging.

How about you? πŸ™‚

Question of the day.

When were you last greatly relieved at being able to excuse yourself from something you were dreading?

My answer:

Well, for me avoidance is one of the main strategies to deal with life, I guess I wouldn’t be diagnosed with avoidant personality disorder if it wouldn’t be so πŸ˜€ ALthough in avoidant personality disorder avoidance seems to refer only or mostly to social situations, while for me it can be also in some other sorts of anxiety provoking situations too as I don’t have only social anxiety. and finding excuses for things I feel anxious about, or feel uncomfortable with generally, is always a very tempting thing to do, and one I do, or at least think about doing, very often. It’s also usually very relieving when I can excuse myself from something I’m very anxious about or don’t feel like doing for any reason, unless it’s something real important that I excuse myself of doing and then my conscience bites me. πŸ˜€ But, the last thing I was able to avoid…? God I guess there are so many of them I just don’t know when was the last time, sometimes I just don’t realise that the thing I’m doing at a certain moment is avoidance. It’s just so weird. Mmm… Ah, I don’t know if it was the last thing but it was pretty recent!

Last week on Friday Zofijka’s classmate came over to us for lunch, and then to play with her. We were home alone, I mean our parents were away. THis girl is new, she lives here since a couple months, and that was the first time I met her. I liked her, and I knew from Zofijka she likes her too and sort of admires her, because she’s lived in the US for a couple years and her English is very good. Zofijka doesn’t have very high aspirations as for her ENglish but it seemed to impress her. ANd she wanted us to talk in English to each other and she wanted to listen. So, although we were both rather confused as for what we can talk about, we did, and the discussion became pretty dynamic and funny, especially that Zofijka could understand hardly anything and we were telling her we’re talking about her which was driving her crazy.

At the weekend, her parents wanted to come to us – we wanted to give them our rabbit cage, as we didn’t have rabbits anymore while they did and didn’t have a proper cage – and because both my parents and hers have been quite interested in each other because of similar views and stuff they just wanted to meet. I didn’t particularly care about their visit. When they came, I was in my room, doing some Welsh, I knew they didn’t expect me to join them or anything. After some time though Zofijka knocked on my door and said that her friend told them about me, and about our English conversation, and that they’d like to meet me. For some reason that made me feel rather jittery, I do like to show off my language skills but I definitely don’t like people to make too much fuss about them and I felt like they definitely might, and I just had a very anxious day which I guess contributed to my maybe slightly inadequate reaction. I just told Zofijka I am doing my Welsh and I’ll come to them when I finish. ANd I was very glad I had that excuse. After they left and when we watched a film later on with Mum she told me they were so looking forward to meet me because of course Zofijka told Mum that I can’t come because I am doing Welsh and they heard it and they were like WHAT? Welsh?! And that they were still very interested in meeting me. It’s not like I don’t want to meet them or something, I think they are pretty nice people from what I know, but it just makes me feel soooo weird when people make so much fuss and overexcite about my languages, it’s embarrassing, annoying and scary.

How about you? πŸ™‚

Friendly Fill-ins.

Here are this week’s Friendly Fill-ins, hosted by 15 And Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

 

 

  1. Β  Black Friday _________________________________ is a bit weird holiday in my opinion, but I don’t really care about it much and it amazes me a little that some people seem to be so excited about it, I was never particularly into shopping though. I think the weird thing about it is that it actually seems to last a week, if not more. πŸ˜€ But if people like it so much, why not?
  2. A pet peeve of mine at this time of year is ___________________________ Christmas music being already played so very often on the radio. People, it’s not even December yet! πŸ˜€ I mean, if they like it so much, OK, their business, I do have my own Christmas favourites that I sometimes can’t resist to not listen on other times of the year too, even if it’s the middle of the summer, that can be fun, but hearing about Christmas everywhere when it’s still a little less than a month until it arrives makes me feel a little sick, even though I do like Christmas, I just think too much can be very unhealthy.
  3. β€˜Tis the season for _________ writing a lot for me. I’m writing a lot in my book about “Jack Hamilton” lately, after neglecting him for some time.

I never jumped on the fantasy books _________ bandwagon. They seem to be so popular lately. I like some stuff like for example our Polish “The Witcher”, or other stuff that has a bit of a fairy tale feel, as well as proper legends and fairytales and stuff, but I’ve never liked stuff like “Harry Potter”, or books that are very focused on paranormal/supernatural stuff, all the books about vampires, werewolves, alternative worlds, superpowers, it never, or very rarely spoke to me very much, I guess only when the topic iss somewhat close to me I can enjoy such book a bit. I did read some of them out of curiosity, but yeah, not my cup of tea definitely.
