Answers to last Fridays thefridayfive questions from
1. When did you recently have the feeling, “Life is good.”
It’s been more than a decade. I don’t remember ever feeling/thinking that since I got ill.
2. Which do you need more, routine or spontaneity?
I’d say both. I need more routine when it comes to house hold stuff such as vacuuming. But I should also try to be more spontaneous. It’s just that most of the unplanned things in my adult life have been negative, not positive, so I don’t trust unplanned things.
3. Do you have a difficult or annoying neighbor?
Not right now. There used to be a sometimes-annoying neighbor who’d blast music and talk by shouting literally until 4am (sometimes until 7am) occasionally; no one slept those nights in my building. But that hasn’t happened in a year or so now *knock on wood* Maybe they’ve moved away?
4. What do you want to change about yourself?
The things I actually want to change about myself I can’t because they’re the effects of my illnesses… such as being exhausted all the time, and doing things being difficult because of it. I want doing things to be less energy sucking and easier.
5. What do you like best about where you live?
That it’s safe (both as in I don’t need to fear other people for the most part, and we don’t have natural disasters such as hurricanes or earthquakes), and my town has a good public transport system.
