  1. Day Five 4/01/19 Dunedin to Invercargill

    This day was really rather hard both physically because mum made us walk up a billion hills and mentally because well that’s just not going well. The morning started with a walk up Baldwin Street the steepest street in New Zealand which took me all of 5 minutes and my family a lot more so as a stupid person does I did it twice so kill the time I was waiting for them to get back down. After that I was pretty tired but off we drove to tunnel beach which when we got there we discovered it was...
  2. More of the same

    New year, same old news. New resolutions, same disappointments. These games are just not for me. I ust to qualify myself as boring in the eyes of the world, now I choose to call it simplicity. Inspiration ‘As long as you are truthful towards yourself, no one can move you, but the moment you are not truthful towards yourself, then you are lost. Very often we create a certain reality. We pretend to be somebody. We pretend to do certain things. There is nothing real about that. And this is...
  3. Day Four 3/01/19 Dunedin

    Well a smart person would have written this last night but I didn’t so it might be a little weird and I’m probably going to miss a lot of things but it might make for a shorter post so that will probably suit you guys better. Yesterday we got on the road early and went off to Larnach Castle, so we could take advantage of the early bird special which ended up working very well because there was only a few other families in the castle when we got there and by the time we were ready to start...
  4. New year goals

    After a 5 hour community meeting where the main focus was the New year goals I confess I am quite overwelmed and frustrated. I don't seem to have the ability to do this kind of planing. My only and all around goal is to be left alone in my comfortable safe zone. But that is something that it will just not happen... Inspiration: ‘Every day, you have to observe yourself; observe your good qualities and your not-so-good qualities. When you learn to observe, you will also learn to overcome,...
  5. First Blog entry of 2019, good day today!

    Well apart from this morning when the carer didn't turn up till gone 11 because they were under the mistaken impression that Mum had cancelled, wrong! She would've told me, anyway they gave me a shave when they finally turned up, even though it was nearly lunch time and too late to have a bath which is the whole reason they come in the flippin' first place. Moving on before I start on a long angst filled rant, this afternoon we went on Hillsborough to the Post Office to send off that camera...
  6. Day Three 2/01/19 Oamaru to Dunedin

    Today While wondering and making notes of the things I might like to share, I guess it was a realization, I realized that the best parts and the funnies parts are funny in the moment and not after and well I always forget to share them. Today started early again at 6.15 when dad shook the camper van as he climbed out of bed (nothing against him you can’t even roll over without moving the thing in fact I think my tying is making it wiggle) from that point I got up and showered in what I must...
  7. Day Two 1/01/19 Christchurch to Oamaru

    Today went a lot better. Still hard but doing a lot better just adjusting to being okay with doing this but I still want to go home a lot but I think it’s actually going to be okay. My day again started early but not 4am early more 6am early because the light shone through my curtains but I decided to get up and have a shower which was a great plan because I had the whole bathrooms to myself for my whole shower. We got on the road at about 9.30am and headed out of Christchurch southwards....
  8. Day One 31/12/18 Home to Christchurch, Spencerville

    Today was hard, my day started at 4am for no other reason than I was anxious and well it didn’t get much better from here. At abut 10am my Aunt came and took us all to the airport in the car ride there I almost cried (1) so that was fun, we got to the airport and checked in out bags that was all fine and dandy. We sat and chatted for a bit and I showed my younger cousin the plane she was pretty excited a while later they left and when my cousin gave me a hug I almost cried again (2). I was...
  9. The ending to this drama

    Shelter drama is a special type of drama. Think about ego issues combined with paranoia combined with a healthy dose of narcissism and a complete and utter lack of manners... along with a loud voice. That's a lot of shelter women. Many of them are abusers themselves, that left just to keep from going to jail. Others are drug addicts looking for a place to lay their head and get lots of freebies so they can spend any money they get on drugs. The vast majority of them are "easy" women that...
  10. January 2019 daily goals

    1) exercise 2) quilt 3) iPad drawing 4) read book 5) self-hypnosis In order of importance. I’ve already finished a couple of small quilts, learning as I go. Discovered best time for exercise without the parents barging in on me. And I’ve read 156 pages of a book so far this December, reading more book pages than the four or so preceding months combined. I like to listen to a video on YouTube as I’m reading or working that’s an instrumental specifically for reading & concentration.
  11. A touch of psychosis and another diagnosis.

    In keeping with the December theme, I figured I'd go with a rhyming title ;) Time for another update! Since my last update, my recovery from depression was going rather well. I wasn't depressed anymore, feeling better and less bleak, although I still didn't really feel like myself yet. And because life is full of little surprises, a month ago I experienced a brief psychotic break out of the blue. It was frightening, because I was very much aware that something was wrong with me, and I wanted...
  12. $32,500

    A trailer I was watching on Zillow sold for $32,500 earlier this month. Father thought it was high, but that’s about how much the lot is worth. It’s in our village & not in a park. I’m excited because that kind of a price seems doable to me. Not now, but as a long term goal...
