Question of the day.

Hi people! πŸ™‚

When was the first time you remember feeling accomplished about something?

My answer:

Well, I guess I don’t remember which one could be the first time… I used to take part in many song competitions and such as a small child, so maybe something in relation to this. I especially liked our local song contest, where I competed with children from a special needs school in a neighbouring town, who were all multiply disabled often including intellectual disability, in contrast to me as I have only one disability per se, and I always won those contests, which wasn’t difficult for me at all, and I guess it wasn’t even that very fair as the jury were kinda biased towards me, haha, so not much challenge at all. So I always came back home from there with a big basket of sweets and we’d have a month or so of devouring horrendous amounts of them every day with Olek. Although now I wonder why they actually got me in there and then always made me a winner whether rightly or not rather than give more chances to the children at that school, and not make them compete with someone who had completely different kind of difficulties than them, I guess some people, even those in the field of disabilities, still think that a disability is just a disability and it doesn’t matter if you’re using a wheelchair, are blind, mentally ill or having a rare disease, it’s all the same for them, which is stupid. At least not all people are like this nowadays.

What’s the first accomplishment that you can remember? πŸ™‚

  1. When I won the Young Author’s contest in 8th grade. They told me to change it, teen suicide was too dark a topic. I changed nothing. I won. It felt very accomplished and my artistic integrity remained in tact, to their chagrin. I wasn’t shiny and happy then, not shiny and happy now, at least I am consistent πŸ˜‰

    1. Good that you didn’t change the topic, the topic of teen suicide is definitely dark but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be talked about, and dark topics can make for interesting and/or insightful pieces of literature! And art is about expressing your emotions, so you don’t have to be happy and shiny in it all the time. When I was a teen I wrote a lot of dark stories too, or at least with dark, sad endings, and people would also tell me I should change that, but I never did, it just wouldn’t feel right.
