WHAT I LIKE TO DO
BY AMY B.
Im happy when I get to do
things that I dont have to do, like walking downtown and getting my breakfast,
lunch, and dinner, and shopping in small stores (because I am now afraid of big stores). I
like going swimming in the summer. I especially like to plan a vacation and then enjoy
spending a week in August doing what I want.
My leisure time activities are: To
rest on my sofa with the TV on and to play on my computer (I also love to get new
CDs and install them). I have a busy schedule with a limited amount of time to do
things. That is why my one day of leisure is so important to me. My hobby is watering and
spraying my indoor plants. That is a real interest of mine now. I spend some of my leisure
time reading magazines and books. A special treat is going out to brunch with my father on
Before my accident I liked
water-skiing. I liked all water sports and all snow sports and I was good at them. But
since my accident I have difficulty with my gross motor skills and Im afraid
Ill hurt myself. Now Im not able to do as many of these very active fun things
so now I love computers, and resting on my sofa and watching TV. I still like all music I
hear such as the Police, Joe Jackson, The Beatles, and many others. I will continue to
concentrate on speaking clearly, on my fine motor skills and on trying to be as
independent as I can (which isnt always easy)!
