I got an A on my 3rd module!!

The results of my 3rd module are up on canvas. We had four modules in total for our course. The 3rd one I just finished in late October. For that module, I had to do a poster presentation and a learner log which was 800 words in length. I chose to do my poster presentation on friendly call and on isolation and loneliness, and I did my learner log on what it was like to work on friendly call. I just checked my result and I got an A for both the presentation and I also got an A for my learner log!
I am so very proud of myself! I put in a lot of work into both the presentation and learner log!
That means I will get a 1-1 first class honour in the overall course, as I have all A’s in the 3 modules, and I am hoping this last presentation I did today, for the fourth and final module, I am hoping to get an A on that too!
What a great way to end the night! I can go to bed happy! I am so elated!
This is the best news ever!

A lotto win!

I just won 60 euro on the lottery!
Yay! I am delighted! I hardly ever win, even though I do it every week!
I am putting another 40 euro to the 60 I won, and buying 100 dollars with it!
Thats spending money for when I go to colorado next may!
I already have 200 dollars saved for my spending money! This is going to make it 300! Yay!
A few more wins like that, and I’ll have tons of spending money!
My plan is to bring about 2000 dollars with me!
I probably wont need that much but its nice to have it!

I told my work colleagues my exciting news!

So I told my work colleagues yesterday that I was off to Colorado next summer!

they were really excited for me! And so jealous too!

My colleague trish was telling everyone about it! She made me laugh because her excitement was palpable, you’d sware it was her who was going!

When I told them I’d be traveling alone, they couldnt believe it!

Another volunteer said I am an inspiration! I told her no, I am not! I just like to be independent and not allow my disability to hold me back!

Trish said I should make a blog about my travels! I didnt tell them I already have a blog! They dont know about my struggles with MH issues.

It was lovely though to go in and be able to share my good news! And the more I shared with them the more excited I got! It was so cool and I just love the feeling of excitement that I get when I think of going next year!

I’m saving up money now for my spending money. I’ll be saving hard for the next few months! I want to have a lot so I can do things, enjoy myself, and not have to worry about how much I have or can spend!

I’m so excited! I’ve gave myself an early birthday gift!!

I’ve some amazing news to share! I am so excited!
Next May I am going to america! To denver in collorado! I am going to visit my friend Sarah! I’ve known sarah since 2012, we became friends when we both joined a list for blind people with mental illness. Our friendship blossomed and from there we became best friends!
She has did and ptsd, and she is blind like i am!
I’m going to go visit her and celebrate her birthday with her!
I’ll be staying at least 2 weeks, but it could be longer we arent sure yet as we still have to firm up dates.
But later this week I am going in to book my flights!
I am on air! I’ve always wanted to meet her and now, finally its happening!
We’re going to have so so much fun together!
Our insiders will have a blast! I know Liz is looking forward to meeting her good friend Brandy in sarahs system. They will probably go mental and have lots of alcohol!
Also the kids are excited to meet their friends in sarahs system too!
Its going to be an epic trip!
I’d been thinking about it for a while, and last night I finally got to ask Sarah how she felt about me coming, since we face timed last night.
She was all for me coming! And her mom offered to pick me up at the airport and drop me there to go home again! And we’ll even go stay with her mom in the mountains for a few days too!
I told her I’ll go to the mountains as long as bears dont eat me! Lol!
Since I am 40 next year, my birthdays in april, and sarahs is in may, the trip will be in between both of our birthdays, and I thought this would be a nice birthday present to give myself when I turn the big 40!
So whose excited for me?
I think I’m going to burst with excitement!
