|My Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler OC Kitty Maguire! |
Have a look at her, ask me about her, tell me what you think about her, and if you have any hints how I could improve her, feel free to let me know. :3
As you might already have noticed I´m back again. XD
Those five days were highly enjoyable. I had not seen my German grandmother for two years (!), so I thought it would be nice to pay her a visit. My mother didn´t come with me; her Multiple Sclerosis doesn´t allow her the long train rides, and her brother has more time in summer to drive her all the way up to my granny´s place.
She´s a special person. Very naïve – she has been raised that way. Apparently she wasn´t allowed to ride a bus alone until she was married. Her own mother has already been raised like that. But she´s very nice, and surprisingly open-minded; she desperately wants to meet my girlfriend. XD She keeps on asking stuff like how long we´ve been together, what we like ding together in our free time, when I plan to bring her along…it´s somehow cute.
Physically she is slowly growing weaker. Last time I saw her she could walk with no help in her own flat and only took her walker/rollator when she had to go outside…now she needs it even within her four walls. My cousins and their partners/children as well as my mother´s sister bring her food when they go shopping and help her out. That being said, the lady is over 80 years old, and for her age she´s still quite well.
It was interesting to go back to the town in which my mother was born and raised. It´s an industrial city with a big history in coal and steel production, but the plant owners made sure to build enough homes for their workers and their families. There are vast parks around, so depending on where you are you might even see wild rabbits. XD Nonetheless this is nothing compared to where she used to live before…she only came back here because of her health; she thought it would be safer to live near her oldest daughter again.
When I was a child we used to visit my grandmother every year for at least two weeks during the summer break. Back then she lived in a different part of Germany, with vast nature and forests and lots of historical sites to visit…the only distractions for kids were the outdoor swimming pool and the small fairytale theme park, and I was only allowed to go there maybe once in two weeks, so I used to be bored to death by the end of the first week. XD Nowadays I really really really miss it. It´s a magical place with lots of things to discover. Isn´t it strange how you sometimes only learn to appreciate some things as you grow older? I´d love to return there; maybe someday.
This is the place she used to live at; it´s called Heimbach.
Anyways, enough rambling. I´m here again!
My timetable for university is set, and my next exam is on April 8th, English Literature and Linguistics. I did most of it already last year, so studying for said exam should be an easy task. This also means that I have time to draaaaw *flails* and read books and do stuff. Yeah. XD
