The writing prompt for this weekend from sammy is tinker!
I like to tinker with things sometimes. I am not that good at making things, but sometimes I do like to try! I also like just tinkering about with techy stuff and seeing if I can figure it out on my own without any help! I mostly always do figure stuff out after being at it for a while! Give me a few hours on my own with something and I will get it going or figure out how to use it! Tinkering around with things brings me a lot of pleasure! Its a fun passtime!
So do you like to tinker with stuff?
What is one thing you would like to become better at?
What is or has been your favourite hobby over the years?
TODAY FOR WRITE 31 DAYS, ITS MY TURN TO INTRODUCE MYSELF TO YOU ALL.
MY NAME IS WENDY. I’M WHAT IS KNOWN IN OUR SYSTEM AS A DARK. IM 23.
I HAVE REALLY CHANGED A LOT OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, AS YEARS AGO I WAS THE ONE WHO WOULD CAUSE PROBLEMS IN THERAPY, INTERFERE WITH THERAPY, ETC. I HATED IT. I HATED OUR THEN THERAPIST. NOW THOUGH I DO WORK WITH EILEEN. I HAVE WORKED HARD ON CHANGING. AND I LIKE HER. I FINALLY ACCEPTED THAT WE NEED TO BE IN THERAPY.
CHANGE IS HARD. CHANGING AND BECOMING A BETTER PERSON IS EVEN HARDER.

so mom is cooking for me today. what would I do without her!
she’s making chicken curry, and vegetable soup.
I’ll have the soup for dinner tomorrow and the leftovers for lunches during the week, and the curry is for my dinner during the coming week.
I think I’ll help my mom with the cooking. I havent really cooked since finishing the ILS course, not properly anyway. My version of cooking has been to just throw something in the oven.
I do enjoy cooking. It makes me happy to do it.
for my new readers, and my old readers too, here are 5 random facts about me.
I’ve been to disneyworld in florida twice. In 2008 and 2009. It was a lot of fun. something that if you can afford it I think everyone should go there.
I love the ocean. I love sitting listening to the waves crashing. I find it very peaceful.
I collect dvd’s. and cd’s. I enjoy movies and music very much.
I’ve had 3 guide dogs. Nitro is my 3rd dog. My other two were females. His personality is a lot different to the female dogs I had. He’s more cuddly and loving I think.
I like raising awareness about mental illness. I try to do it when I can. I’ve given talks and educated doctors on did and ptsd. Its something I’m passionate about.
What are some facts about you?
Yesterday I went to a knitting and crochet group at the basement club and I started to learn how to crochet. This was quite a task as I am blind. The girl who is teaching me had never taught a blind person before. She was quite good for someone who had no experience of teaching a blind person! Well, either she was good, or I am just a fast learner, maybe a little of both, lol.
Either way, I learned the basic double stitch. I had a special hook which allowed me to keep the stitches on easier. I cant remember what the name of that special type of hook is called though. I was trying to learn how to pick up the chain after doing each row, but this proved difficult and I havent mastered it yet.
The group is on at the basement club every tuesday afternoon. Its a small group and so far I like it. Once I get proficient at doing the stitches I am going to make a scarf. I am using cream colored wool and I think once its made it will look really nice.
I’m glad I decided to learn how to crochet as it is going to be another thing I can use when coping with difficult times. It will be a good disttraction technique. The girl who taught me told me that she is able to do it now without even looking at what she is doing. And its a good activity to do with your hands or while you are watching tv or reading a book.
