Hi there! How it goes? I pray that all is well.
I have finally moved into my own place! It’s a dream come true. Because I have finally discovered my niche, I have decided to display my stim. Talking to myself is my main stim, so I have written a self interview. Different I know, but it’s part of me 🙂
How are you feeling so far Veronica?: Well, I woke up with a smile on my face this morning, knowing that I was fully capable of finding a place of my own. A sense of accomplishment hovered over me. On top of that, three people I went to high school with live close by! One lives downstairs from me!! So that makes beginning a new life a whole lot easier! Yes, I miss my family dearly. But at the same time, there’s are things I want to accomplish: pay my own bills, prepare my own meals, perhaps fall in love.
What’s your favorite part of independent living?: Being able to cook my own meals! That’s the best part! I’m a foodie so you may see ample photos of meals I’ve prepared. The photo shown above is an example 😉
What do you hope to gain?: I truly hope to become more of a people person. I realize that I have to learn how to mix with people if I want to succeed at independent living. Loneliness can become a problem when living alone. So, becoming more social is something I hope to master.
Are you aware that independent living is expensive?: Of course. At the same time, I must be out here. God has something in store for me. I don’t know what it is yet, but I will find out (God willingly).🙂
How’s work?: Working in a nursing home is tough. It’s frightening to work in a nursing home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, no new cases were reported since that one case was reported last month. Overall, I’m very blessed that I’m able to work. There are many people on the Autism Spectrum (my twin sister for example) who are unable to do that.
What do you look forward to the most?: I look forward to writing about my experiences, knowing that I will have my ups and downs. Yes, I look forward to gaining more independence, but what can I say? Writing is my passion! I still hope to go pro one day 🙃🙂
