Five more weeks of school plus a new job!

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to stop in and say, I made through my first week of class boy it was rough, however, I am stronger.  I still have a long hard road ahead of me but soon the summer term will be over and I will have my degree in my hand.  I can’t wait!

In other news, I have a new job! I am babysitting my little cousins, Holly and Zack. They are so sweet, and very well-behaved.

Blog soon,

Six more weeks of school for this summer term

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to drop a line saying that I have started the last class before I get my AA degree. I am getting so excited with be almost done and having my degree.  Having said that, I know that my last class will be lots of hard work because my teacher has a lot of work that she wants us to do.  So therefore, to keep me from falling behind I am doing everything I can to keep ahead. I have already done my notebook with all the chapters in it, it took me three days to do my notebook because of my mild Cerebral Palsy, but I worked hard and got it done! I am so proud of myself! I also did my two first homework assignments and have made both 100’s on them. Tomorrow I also have to write a math bio, which shouldn’t be that hard to do.

On today’s note though, I am finishing up the chores that I have to do. I have to clean my Betta fish tank, and do some laundry too.

Shopping wih my cousins

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to let you guys know that I had a great weekend.  I went shopping with my cousins at the mall.  I got me some new clothes, a book on hamsters, and some stuff for my dorm that I am going to need for next fall.  Also, for Mother’s Day, I went out to a local seafood diner with my family. The food was good and we had a nice time.

Happy Easter Everyone..

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter.  My Easter was spent having fun with my family.  After a lite lunch, filled with ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, potato salad, hot rolls, and cake and ice cream, my cousins, grandparents and I went to the beach.

While at the beach, my little cousins and I played in the sand.  We made all different kinds of molds, and built sand castles.  My older cousins also took me out to the water. I love the water, even though the waves were big and I did get knocked down a few times I still had a blast.

Happy Easter everyone!

I want to hear from my readers again…

Night Blindness

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to drop a line about one of my vision problems: Night Blindness.  I was diagnosed with this eye problem last May.  For those of you that don’t know about Night Blindness, according to http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003039.htm, “Night blindness is poor vision at night or in dim light.”

Because of my night blindness, I was told that I would have to use a white cane at night.  Night blindness can be very scary for me; there has been times when I have almost fallen, or have even ran into a glass door because I didn’t see it.  I sometimes feel sad too.

Because we caught this early there are things we can do to try to help my night blindness, such as making sure I take my vitamins and using my eye drops.  But the best defense against night blindness is to prevent it.
