Hi! My name is Val. I am writing this blog to tell people all about my life. I love my life.I like going to work. I have 2 jobs, one in a restaurant, working in the kitchen and the other in a chiropractic office doing files.
I also am making plans to start my own business, hopefully very soon.
I love to travel. I have been to lots of places, including England, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, Iceland, U.S., Mexico, Belize and some islands in the Caribbean. I like beaches.
I like sports. I do Special Olympics sports. I do alpine skiing, nordic skiing, basketball, soccer, golf and rhythmic gymnastics. I am very busy. I also go to a fitness class. I go to tournaments for my sports. I have been to two provincial games in alpine skiing. In January 2015, I will be going to another Provincial Games for alpine. It will be in North Bay. I was Sportsperson of the Year a few years ago. I am also an ambassador for Special Olympics in London.
I love to dance and I love watching plays.
I enjoy spending time with friends.
In my spare time, I take art classes. I love painting. I also take guitar lessons and I volunteer in a song writing class.
I have my own apartment and I decorate it with travel pictures. I cook some of my own meals. I like to cook.
I have two older sisters and a mom and dad. My oldest sister, Angela is married to Ollie and my other sister, Jackie has a boyfriend named Brian. I have a boyfriend, too.
I have 3 pets: one dog, Merlin and two cats, Joey and Ginny. I love all animals.
So what don’t I like? I don’t like spiders.
Oh, and by the way, I also have Down syndrome but that’s just part of who I am.
