A monthly blog hop especially for creative people living with mental illness. This is the place where you can tell it like it is, not yet another place where you have to pretend to be someone you've been told you should be.
1. Your current home: House? Apartment? Trailer? Condo? Other?
2. Which is bigger, your childhood home or your current home?
3. Which is better childhood home or current home? Why?
Both have advantages and disadvantages. My childhood home was an actual house. It was more soundly built than my current home. My current home is pretty much falling apart and I can't afford to repair it. I don't have a working furnace or shower. I shower at my son's apartment, and I have three space heaters in the area where I sleep.
However, my current home is on a quiet cul de sac, and my neighbors are pretty respectful. My mother still lives in my childhood home. The house next door to her is rented out to college students who are always having loud parties. The street where the home is located is very busy.
4. What was your favorite subject in school? (consider high school, college, grad school). Why was this your favorite subject?
English literature, creative writing
Because I like to write, duh.
5. Are you currently working in a field that you studied in college?
Yes. I ended up going back to school in my 40's and getting an LPN license.
6. Describe your first job.
Day care aide at a church.
7. What was your favorite job and why?
Probably the one I have right now. I get to work one on one with my patients, and it pays more than any other job I've had. Sometimes I get really tired, though. I work a lot of hours.
Bonus: What haven’t we talked about in TMI Tuesday that you would like to discuss?
Eh, I don't know. Most people don't want to discuss the things I'm interested in.
