Day 4 ~ Your Dream Job
Working as translator in another country is still kind of my dream job, but realistically that isn’t something that I could probably make happen unfortunately. I love languages so much and I wish I could have pursued this academically when I was in high school and into post-secondary.
What I am slowly working towards now is becoming a personal trainer. I realized that working out/fitness is something that I could enjoy every day and help others as well.
Day 5 ~ My Favourites
So, I just spewed out a whole bunch of favourites…
Favourite colour – blue, or more accurately, midnight blue
Favourite movie – I’ll put a handful of movies that I can never get sick of watching 🙂
The Fifth Element, Lucky Number Slevin, Star Wars, Rurouni Kenshin, and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
Favourite food – Lamb or moose, BBQ’d, with sauteed mushrooms and asparagus. A chicken, caesar salad with baby tomatoes is a good one too.
Favourite beverage – coffee and water
Favourite TV show – Hmmm… Big Bang Theory and Brooklyn 99 stay up there fairly consistently
Favourite type of music – I like pretty much everything, but post-hardcore is my default genre.

Day 6 ~ My obstacles or challenges
My main obstacle is having someone, or a system in place, to care for my son when I need(or want) to do things that he can’t be involved in.
Either because of his age, physical ability, or just overall life skill functionality.
I don’t harbour any negative feelings about this towards my son, it is definitely not his fault, it does make for some difficult and interesting challenges in a day/week/month though. I’ve grow in patient abundantly over the last five years 😀
I imagine that this is a struggle for most parents with a child who has ASD. You’ve got to get creative in the end!!
