The book pimped

I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment, it’s called pimped and it’s by Samantha Owens. It’s a really really good read and I would highly recommend it.

It’s a non-fiction book, a memoir, a true life story.

The thing is this poor teenager had to go through our shocking, really shocking. But they are all to relate able to me some of them at least especially the sexual abuse. Since I was abused not in the same way but in a similar way. I mean I wasn’t pimped out to men, it wasn’t that sort of abuse, but I was raped and so I can relate to what she went through in that way.

If you’re not easily triggered, and you enjoy true stories, I would highly recommend this book to you.

It’s available on audible and probably in kindle format as well.

Burritos!

My sister made burritos for dinner today, she made some for me to have tomorrow! She’s a great cook. I love the food she makes, it was so nice of her to think of me and offer to make some for me.

I know I will enjoy them. My nephew has a match tomorrow, he plays hurling, its a sport that is played in ireland. Well he’s only six, but there is a friendly match on tomorrow morning that he has to go to. So mom and my sister are going to take him, then they are going to go shopping for the afternoon, but I cant go with them as i have to finish an assignment for college thats due this coming week.

However, I might go to my friend Normas house, if I get the assignment done in the morning.. Hoping I do, as I dont want it hanging over me. It is a journal of learning, that has to be 1800 words in length.

Other than that not much going on here. I napped all evening, so now I’ll probably be up for a while. Oh well. Thats ok, its the weekend, I was so tired after work today that I had to nap, I couldnt stay up any longer.

Mentoring apt this morning

I am seeing my mentor this morning. Its good to have that extra bit of support. I am not sure what our apt will be about yet. What we’ll discuss during it I mean. I am just going to go in with no agenda and see what happens.

I really like my mentor. She’s really nice. She’s very open about her own struggles with mental illness too which is nice as it means I can relate to her better. I am glad she’s not afraid to talk to me about her own history. That allows us to bond more I think.

I hope our apt today is good but I am pretty sure it will be.
