My name is Ida, but I definitely like nicknames. You are welcome to be creative and give me one, or simply calling me unnie, since I do like to be called that as well.
I am 21 years old and at the moment I study Latin. I have just finished Ancient Greek due to depression. I will hopefully start on my degree in English this summer.
I have worked as a full time nanny and I am still babysitting (currently four kids, for a couple of days/a week whenever their mum needs to go to the mainland; they live on a tiny island). I love spending time with children, though it can be stressful at times.
I was introduced to Super Junior 2 years ago. I did not fall in love immediately, but slowly these weird Korean guys won me over. It came to a point where, when my depression got really bad, they were what could reach me and make me smile again. That is why they have come to mean so much to me. They are a huge part of who I am today and I owe them a lot. I can laugh with them and I can cry with them and it is a huge relief to not feel alone. I went to Paris all by myself to see them for Super Show 4 and it was.... there are no words. I didn't cry as I had expected I would, but I was totally mind blown when suddenly they just... stood there. In real life. like... 5 metres away from me. It is the first concert I have ever been to and it was amazing. If they ever come to Europe again, I will go see them again, no matter what day it will be.
I have a cat who is really called Artemis, but I always call her Mitten. I really talk too much about her all the time. She is a little monster and I love her more than anything.
I have a shitload of movies, arranged in alphabetical order, and my books are arranged after height, but other than that, I cannot keep my room tidy for the life of me. I am addicted to shower gels and have over 20 different ones. I have a snake called Henry, named after Henry Lau. Lime green and sapphire blue are my favourite colours and most of my kitchen stuff are lime green (as well as my towels and my hamper). My computer is named Cindy. I am addicted to AFF and check it more often than Facebook. I really spoil my cat too much. I am almost always ready to talk, though I am very forgetful, so if I see your message sometime where I can’t respond, it might take days for me to answer. This is not because I do not want to talk to you, but I really have my head in the clouds sometimes.
As mentioned several times, I suffer from depression. I have chosen to be open about this, in the hopes that someone out there, who might suffer from depression themselves but don’t have the courage to ask for help, will either be inspired to ask for help or just know that they are not alone. Mental illnesses have become a taboo and it is a shame. It is nothing to be ashamed of and it is not something you can help. Unfortunately, for the people who haven’t tried to feel it on their own body, it quickly becomes a matter of “just pulling yourself together”, which it really isn’t. If you have a mental illness, don’t be ashamed. Ask for help. Or just tell somebody. My inbox is always open, and though I might not be able to do something other than listen, sometimes that is exactly what you need.
