Directions

I feel pathetic saying this, but I don't know what to do with my life. There is literally nothing that I really want. And because of that I end up feeling shallow and worthless. I'm not able to do some things because of my disability, but even if I was I mean, I'm not a…

It's been a while since I wrote on this blog. I'm here to try again, and if it doesn't work then I should probably just give up completely! But I got a new toy today that I think is going to be wonderful 🙂 I downloaded Dragon NaturallySpeaking software. Right now I'm using a microphone…

Victorian era tech

I read a book called "The Victorian Internet" by Tom Standage. Now, I am NOT a nonfiction person, so it took me a while to actually sit down and read this. And y'all: SO GOOD. It's about the creation of the telegraph and even though the technologies differ, it is so relevant to modern technology…

Life today

Spring is here and I feel fresh and new! That sounds so lame, but it is so real. A few days of natural vitamin D is great medicine. I went to Florida last week. Disney, of course. G's family has been in the DVC for years so I get to enjoy the perks. We go…

A New Summer

I love summer. I am so alive. The heat pressing on my skin, the breeze blowing wisps of my hair in my face. Here I am again, telling myself to write this blog. The past year has been eventful for me, to say the least, and I might actually have things to say now. So…

Jane Austen Summer Program (revised)

After my last blog post about the lack of consideration for wheelchair users at the Jane Austen Summer Program, I was both horribly embarrassed and excited to hear from the event organizer. They offered me a partial refund which I thought was wonderful; I also gave them a bit of advice on how to fix…
