I know I'm a bit late, but yesterday was a busy day for me. So I'm joining the party today.

And now to the BRAGGING!
You know, I'm a very reserved person and I don't like bragging. But I usually make people laugh telling stories about my disastrous adventures.
Like that year that I was following an English course in England (I was 14) and the teacher decided we had to have a horse ride. Unfortunately for me, the horse keeper didn't fix the saddle well.... At one point my horse started galloping away and the saddle climbed to his neck. When he stopped to eat a daisy we were on the edge of a ravine! He stopped and I fell, rolling like a stone, for about 50 feet. Ehehehe!! And you know, I didn't hurt myself at all!
I could go on for hours telling stories about my tumbles.... from stairs, tube, sheets of ice.... I never broke anything, but my back is ruined.
I'm a 40something gal from Italy and I usually call me a "Phoenix", because I always revive from my ashes.
I suffer from depression and have high and lows. But I don't want to take pills and try to "fight" it by myself. Until now it looks like I've been successful. Sometimes I have months-long periods of darkness, but I use them to clean my head and restart again.
And I must say that drawing has helped me very much with this, because when I draw I enter a world of mental stillness that allows me to calm down my brain. I crave for silence and work as a cashier in a self-service, where the noise is at maximum levels and my co-workers are all very noisy individuals. So, when I come home I really enjoy some silence and relaxing time.
Well, this post is becoming too long, now.
Let's talk about my Giveaway.
