Introduction: We want you to hear from the future residents of the Input Housing condominium building. This is the fourth of a series of posts, focusing on each of the amazing young people who will realize the dream of having a place of their own, through Input Housing Corp. (IHC).
IHC: Hi, Dani…what do you want people to know about you?
Dani: I am 30 years old. I was born in Regina and I have always lived here. I have one sister and one brother, but they are getting married, so soon our family will be bigger. And I have my Mom, Kathy, and my dad, Dave. Usually I call them Dave and Kathy, because we are all grown ups.
IHC: I know you like to travel…
Dani: I travel a lot. We have been to Phoenix, Hawaii, Mexico, DisneyLand and DisneyWorld. Also, lots of places in Saskatchewan, especially the beach and Gravelbourg. I like going on road trips. I am a good traveller. And I love shopping, just like my Mom. I also love swimming, walking and snorkelling and making s’mores. I like sunshine and relaxing in a nice comfortable chair, like a recliner.
IHC: Are you excited about having a condo of your own?
Dani: Yes. I like to look at the plans. I will have a dishwasher, laundry, and a big t-v. I will do my own cooking…all kinds of recipes. I can make egg-wiches, sausage, pancakes, and salads. I can chop vegetables because it’s healthy eating. I like carrots, salad with ranch dressing. I like to make jello for a bedtime snack. I make five at a time. It’s one of my jobs. I also like fruit at bedtime.
IHC: Tell me about your friends and what you do for fun.
Dani: Lindsay and Bree are my best friends. I am excited that we will all be neighbours in our new condo. I like to play games on the Wii. We all go bowling together. Lindsay, Bree, Nick and I are all on the same team. We also love dancing and karaoke. We belong to a Book Club. I like to use my iPad to play “Jewels” and I do word searches on the iPad. I record videos of me singing; I am a good singer. I sing Glee Club songs. I like to text Dave and Kathy, my friends, my sister and brother. I like cats.
IHC: Now that you getting a condo, how are you preparing?
Dani: I am doing my own laundry, I have to brush my teeth, shower and look after myself. I make my own bed. Dave thinks he’s going to get me to wash his truck. I also help when we are barbecuing. Dave and I flip burgers and make chicken. When I am in my own place I will use my iPad, have showers. I won’t stay up late. I like to get to bed at 10:30. I like to get up at 8:30. When I get up, I always want to have a coffee.
IHC: When you have your own place will you invite Dave and Kathy for dinner?
Dani: Yes, I will make dinner, but no sleepovers because we’ll argue and fight. In the condo, we will watch movies. I like Netflix, Glee, Little Mermaid, Full House and Fuller House.
IHC: Tell me about where you work.
Dani: I work at Cosmo, folding napkins, stuffing envelopes and things; I clean tables, wash dishes. We do concerts at Christmas. We do some dancing like salsa. I like to dance.
IHC: What are the things that mean the most to you?
Dani: Best friends, family and love.
