GBA Replayed - GBA 113 Donna
2 days ago
It's another episode of GBA Replayed which showcases some of the conversations recorded in the early years of Getting Better Acquainted.
In GBA 113 we get better acquainted with Donna. She talks about fitting in, sticking out, dressing up, social awkwardness, creating your own reality, dancing, working with children and more.
Donna is a very unique person and we met in her very unique office filled with the interesting bric a brac that she uses to entertain children. She discusses the time when she would only wear green clothes and talks about spending her free time inside her inner world.
"The idea that other things do exist outside of normality... You can just say, 'that doesn't exist in my world, so I'll just tunnel vision my way to the end. I can see the end, so I'll head for the end and then die.'"
