What did you or did not like about the first place you lived without your parents?

The first place I lived without my parents was the boarding school for the blind where I went when I was 5 and stayed there until I was 17. Since it was about 380 km from my home, I didn’t see my parents very often, which I think is quite essential for a child’s well-being, although they tried to visit me or take me home as often as possible. Because I got there so early, I don’t think now it had a good influence on me overall and I suppose I could be more traumatised by living there than I’ve ever thought, although I still often wonder why as other kids didn’t seem to experience so many difficulties around that so it all still feels a bit odd to me. So, generally I’d say I didn’t like that place at all. But I can’t say there were only negatives about that. I had some nice moments in there, although I didn’t have any close friends I was rather liked and had often fun with other girls, and also I have learnt some things there that I suppose would be hard for me to learn at home.

What is your most favorite smell/scent?
Hmm, hard to say, I think I’ve never had very good sense of smell, sometimes I can’t quite feel a smell that everyone around is feeling even if they say it’s rather intensive, but it’s not like I can’t feel scents at all, I think it’s a bit random, so… I think I’ll pick jasmine. I like it and I like jasmine perfumes and I think they fit me.

Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?
I like snow, but am not as excited about it as many people seem to be, also I don’t really feel like it’s making the atmosphere around very different or “Christmasy” as many people seem to think. I think there should be at least some snow in winter, otherwise we wouldn’t notice it’s winter, but not too much, as on a longer term basis it can be rather annoying and troublesome on the roads. and children would get used to it quickly so it wouldn’t be as much fun, I suppose.

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.

Generally it was quite a hard week for me, but of course there were things like Misha, doing stuff with my languages and even somehow progressing with them and other small but nice things and I enjoyed them more or less as always. I am glad I listened to my therapist’s suggestion and went to my GP last Monday and asked him to put me on the anti-anxiety med I was on a few years ago and it worked well for me. Now it does too and I seem to have less anxiety since then.

Thanks a lot to Cee

Share Your World – February 26, 2018.

What are you reading right now?
We have so called obligatory readings in all the schools in Poland and I’m now reading one of those which are obligatory for our term, it is a comedy called in English “War Of Love” written by ALeksander Fredro. I love reading, but obligatory readings are usually fairly boring and this one isn’t an exception.

What was your first adult job?
My first and current job is being an office worker in my Dad’s company. There are only two of us in it, he had to register his own company to be employed in the company he’s working for now. He’s a tank driver. I don’t have my work to do, practically what I do is helping Dad with some tech stuff as even things like typing are like black magic for him. Also I answer to emails send to him. It isn’t anything exciting, but I earn some money which I can either spend on anything I want for myself, as I live with my family and don’t have to buy basic things like food for my own money, or I can save them for the future as I still don’t know what I will/want to do later in life. I appreciate it a lot and my Dad does too as because I’m disabled, he doesn’t lose any money when he pays me, he gets the same amount back from the fund for disabled people or however it should be called in English.

What’s your favorite breakfast cereal?
Cini Miiiiniiiis!!! 😀 I’m crazy for them and my siblings are too. I like them both with milk and dry. I like Chocapic too, I most often eat them with yoghurt, as well as those cereal that look like pillows and have different fillings, I forgot how they’re called. I love Cheerios too but rarely have them.

Misha, progress in my languages, blogging, writing more of my book, a self care evening I had on Friday with a long hot bath and Jack Daniels with Pepsi, listening to lots of good music, testing my Mum’s new electrostimulator which was funny and I’ve never used it before and didn’t have the slightest idea about how it works, trying some yummy food.
