I’m currently taking a break from the Internet. Just feel like need a break, it’s just the same old shit on fb, all those quotes etc, just the same old, tired of it. Waiting for something new.

I’m currently trying out p365 this year, and done good so far. Trying not to take pics of Atlas everyday, and take pics of other life bits, I’m using the Day One app on my iPhone for that, love it!!

Oh I accidentally left my roku remote at grans. I was thinking oh crap! But luckily I thought about the roku app they keep advertising, tried it out, and it actually works!! As long it’s on the same wifi 🙂

I have 4 months to finish my my Final Project towards graduation. Already started studying, looking forward to see how it unfolds. I have a picture in my head of what I want like to look like.

Nowadays when I go to any restaurants these days, I’m thinking, I can make a better version of this good at home!! Why pay for the food while it don’t taste good and you don’t know what’s in it?? Guess that tells me I’m a good cook 🙂

Sitting here listening to mcCoughy, he’s sick with a cold…

There’s a hype right now that there’s a new tech out there, captioned glasses for movie theaters. I have yet to experince it, went to see the Hobbit and was planning to ask if they had them, then I told myself, I know better, they don’t have them so not gonna even ask. But one thing I was thinking… Why can’t deaf people own their own captioned glasses instead of depending on theaters to have them?


Deaf in Court ( let your daughter speak for herself!!)

This pisses me off
1. Her mother keeps speaking for her
2. She’s 18, she can speak for herself!
3. her mom don’t know to communicate with her 9 think i remember her saying passing notes back and forth to communicate?? you had 18 years to learn ASL or at least use home signs!!!
4. The mother keeps saying she wants her daughter to be normal…. she is NORMAL! just can’t hear
5. The daughter WANTS to be at the Deaf institution, so LET her. in fact, she probably NEEDS it,as need to learn how to live in the deaf/hearing world, needs balance.
6. Yes her grades was probably low because she was having her first experiment in the deaf world, such as socializing, so that’s understandable in this case. just give her time and her grades will prob go back up. the point is the daughter was HAPPY where she was at.

7.  I’m thankful for mom and gran who learned and willing to communicate with me. You shouldnt have to use pen and paper with your PARENT!! other ppl, yes when it’s nesscary, but with your parents?? who you live with and see everyday 24/7??? ridiculous

Deaf Pride!

Whoa, flashback! I was reading a blog post about closed captioning and he mentioned the old closed caption decoder that Deaf/ HOH had to use before the ADA law became in effect in 1993, stating that all new TV has to have closed captioning. I COMPLETELY forgot about this!  I used to have one.

Must Haves For the Deaf (at least for me anyway…)

4 Sep
  • ASL
  • Closed Captioning
  • Texting/phone
  • Internet/Instant Messaging
  • interpreters for appointments/ classes
  • Buzzcards app for iPhone. ( use this when i’m ordering at the restaurant)
  • pen & paper (for back up)
  • Most of all… support of the Deaf community!

( I get frustrated if I cant have access to any of those things)

Cool Videos!

This one has a great message

One day, I was watching TV then I noticed the volume is at the normal spot. I can’t hear it. so I turned it up full blast to 100. Still can’t hear it. I CAN”T HEAR!! I was FREAKING OUT. I was frustrated for a few days. then I realized that I lost more of my hearing… to the point where I’m full deaf…

And along came the Tinnitus… just an ongoing ringing. You are waiting for it to stop but… it just doesn’t

Even thought to myself, is this what full deaf supposed to be like?? then I asked my deaf friends and they said they said they don’t have ringing in their ears. Hmm…

I’m deaf and been having tinnitus since 2008 and had it ever since. can be bothersome but i learned how to deal with it. think i got mine from listening to my iPod too loud. I was Hard of Hearing then became full deaf and the tinnitus came at the same time. I did some research MANY times, there ‘s no real cure for it, which sucks.

I finally went to the ENT doctor after months to take a hearing test to confirm that I was deaf. It was confirmed. He said that my hearing has went wayyyyy down. It didn’t bother me. I was happy to have to officially confirmed and ready to accept the fact. Then I asked him about the tinnitus, he basically said exactly what I been researching. there’s no cure for it, avoid  salt, alcohol, caffeine, and aspirin. Yeah yeah I knew that already. Then he said maybe I should consider cochlear implant. As I was watching her interpret what the doctor was saying she had an expression on her face as she fingerspells cochlear implant. NOPE. Deaf Pride here! 🙂

As for hearing aids, I hate them. I wore them k-12 in school. Gave me headaches all the time, even made me vomit because the headaches was so bad.

Being deaf don’t bother me. I grew up with the language, already have support from the deaf community. What bothers me is the ringing in my ears.
