Like I mentioned in my last “real life” entry, I had attended my friend Eleclya’s 29th birthday party and had a sleepover at her home. I woke up early, about at half past eight o’clock in the morning; I had slept fully clothes, wearing Eleclya’s pink fluffy hoodie that originally belonged to Mirette, because I was feeling chilly.
Mirette and Suavecita were also awake. I made coffee and ate some of the birthday cheesecake that Eleclya had baked.
Later the day I decided to leave, I was feeling bored and had plenty of stuff to do. I hugged and kissed Suavecita and Mirette, I could have kissed Eleclya as well but she was sleeping away her hangover.
I caught the bus %/! to Mole Hill, once back home I did some housework and had a bowl of oatmeal porridge for breakfast.
Later the day I took the bus %/! to Walnut Hill and went to Late Winds which was just about to be opened. There was going to be a support group for mentally challenged people who “hear voices” as a main part of their illness.
I didn’t know when the support group would start, but one of the counsellors told me that it would start on half past one o’clock in the afternoon, and it was only half past eleven in the morning.
I had a cup of coffee and another of cocoa, wrote into my diary, and talked with other people.
Once the support group began, I was the only attendee along with the counsellor. We talked about our delusions, she gave me some flyers, and encouraged me to keep a diary about my delusions.
I had to leave a bit earlier because I had to make it to the bus #”” to Helsinki, I was on my way to the art workshop.
I caught the bus to downtown Helsinki. Once at the workshop, I made a paper sculpture depicting a unicorn and a space satellite.
After the workshop, I caught a train to Pole and went to the fair next to the college that I had dropped out of. There were three subjects; children’s clothes and books and stuff, pet animals, and people’s handiwork, like knitting and sewing.
At the pet animal fair, I petted dogs and guinea pigs, and I wanted to pet skunks as well but they were having a nap.
After the fair, I took a train back home. I started on a new diary because the old one was full.
In the evening, I went to the gym; I used heavier weights, and actually noticed the effect in my muscles.
I know I should have given myself time to recover, because my muscles were aching when I walked back home. Too bad I cannot afford a recover drink every time I work out.
Once back home, I washed a couple of loads of laundry, and went to bed.
About at midnight, Mirette came home from Eleclya’s.
On Sunday morning, I woke up to a tremendous headache, and had a weird hot feeling in my body, like my cells were boiling. I wondered if it was because of the hydro- colonic treatment.
I got up, took my morning medicine, had a wash, and dressed up. I called my mother and told her I was about to visit her, but she told me to come later because she was going grocery shopping and my dad wasn’t home yet.
I did some random odd jobs around my home, and then I left. I took the bus %/” to my parents’ home, both of them had just returned.
I ate some cinnamon rolls and salmiakki- chocolate waffles and cherry tomatoes, and drank coffee. Mom gave me 15 euros as an allowance.
Mom suggested that we go out for errands together. We walked to the station and she went to the newsagent to reload her travel card, then we caught a train to Mole Hill and went to the shopping mall.
First we went to the stationery shop. There was a special discount on magic ink pens, three pens for a tenner, so I bought a blue one, a dark blue one, and a light blue one.
Then we went to the grocery shop, I had to buy milk. My mother advised me on what type of milk I should buy, because high cholesterol levels run in my mother’s side of the family.
Mom bought her favourite treat, a chocolate bar filled with raspberry yoghurt. We visited Flying Tiger and walked about eating pieces of the bar, and I asked my mom to visit my apartment one day.
I walked with mom to the bus stop, and then I went back home. Mirette had already gone to her own home.
I washed two loads of laundry, and scrubbed the toilet bowl.
I called my grandmother, and wondered what I could do for the rest of the day as all the museums were closed and all the shops were about to be closed.
I decided to go visit Helsinki anyway; I caught the bus #) to downtown, and called Suavecita on the way.
Once in Helsinki, I went to the nearest shopping mall to look for clothes; both Benetton and Indiska had some gorgeous clothes, but they were very expensive.
I went to the nearest Hennes & Mauritz, they had gorgeous clothes for sale.
I took a train back home. I continued doing housework, and then it was time to go to bed.
Eleclya texted me and suggested that we go see the movie Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 next week. I said it’s okay, I enjoy going to movies with her.
Tomorrow I will have plenty of stuff to do; I have to call my social worker and ask her for an appointment, and then I have to go visit the health center.
I might also go visit Pearl House, and then Amos Anderson art museum, and then Girls’ House. I also have housework to do.
