I am Pam W. and I am 55 years old. I have come to North Star for a very long time. Last night was good – I got to get a perm for my hair and then we went out to eat at a Chinese buffet place. I live in my own apartment over by Covenant. I don’t have a roommate, but I have staff that helps me cook and clean. Once I burned up a toaster, but I got to get a new one. Sometimes I burn popcorn, but that’s okay.
I have a dad and one brother, but no mom because she passed away. My brother doesn’t live around here. I went to Central and graduated in 1977 – tests are hard because I have trouble spelling sometimes.
I don’t always have any money, so it’s hard to go anywhere without money. But, I can watch movies at my house without money. My favorite movie is Beethoven. That dog grows to be HUGE! I have two televisions – one in the living room and one in my bedroom. I like to watch T.V. every night before I go to sleep. One time my T.V. broke in a storm. And, I like to watch church on television! I like to read and have lots of books! I need some crosswords.
When I was 26 years old, I used to work at Burger King: Monday to Friday and sometimes Saturday or Sunday. I got to clean tables and wash dishes. It was hard, but I got laid-off. It doesn’t do any good to get mad, because it doesn’t get you anywhere. I should smile. I learned you should always count to 10!
