A humorous moment: Hunting down the elusive jersey

 

Looking back now I can only laugh at myself for having been just a bit too zealous, or well organized.  Or maybe just a bit of both.

This all happened when I went to take my clothes out of the dryer and fold them.  I meticulously counted each piece of clothing and then realized that I was missing a particular jersey.  So, off I went in search of it.

I searched the washer, the dryer, and the surrounding floor and carpet, but nothing.  I counted my pieces of clothing once more and still no sign of the missing piece and then, alas!

To my utter bewilderment and humour; I never washed it!  Just needless hours looking for a jersey that was never washed.

Tedious but necessary: Tracing the spill


 I can honestly tell you that when it comes to tracing a spill of any size, it is not much fun for me.  I need to ensure that my mind is crisp, clear, and just ready for any surprise.

The first thing is for me to identify that there is a spill somewhere close by.
Next, the challenge is for me to locate it.
Next, to determine if this is just one spill or are there any other associated spills close by.
Then, to determine the type of spill: dry, wet, soft, hard, or crusty.
Then, to get to work to determine the best way to clean said spill.

Not much fun for me but just another fact of life.

Exciting times! Preparing for a team building event

 

This is one of my newest initiatives and I can tell you that I am very excited.

Andrew and his team have just been so very helpful to me and we are going to work together to hash out the technical challenges.  This is really and truly a team building event.

There are supposed to be over 30 participants but they do not know that I am going to be a guest at their event.  I just love it!

I have prepared my texts and now I wait to overcome my nervousness re the technical side of things.  It is going to be a lot of fun!

A smoother experience! June 16 exam is over

 

Just one more exam for me to sit and with every ounce of luck I will have completed my beloved law degree which I have dreamed of obtaining ever since I was a child.

This particular exam went much more smoothly than the one of October 2020. Sam was with me to help me get set up and to download the exam.  The technical part of the exam to download and upload went without a hitch.

Sam was so very supportive and while I sat in my office writing my exam, Sam sat at my dining room table doing her work.  I took 2 brief breaks to visit her and to visit the washroom.  We chatted for a few minutes each time I came out of my office and mercifully I was done with half hour to spare.

So, this is now behind me.  One more exam to go! I would say that as a blind/vision impaired student, this is not for the faint of heart.  Sighted assistance and support are both necessary.

A disturbing sensation! When my ears clogged up

I can certainly tell you that as someone who is blind/vision impaired, it is almost always double jeopardy whenever my ears clog up, and why?  Because I lose my balance and, as I cannot see where I am going, it is difficult for me to concentrate on maintaining my balance while trying to find my way around both at the same time.

It is no fun and for anyone losing their balance it is not very pleasant. So, here is how I deal with this dilemma.

Whenever I lose my balance, I find a safe spot and sit and wait for this to pass.  Sometimes it does not take long for my balance to return but occasionally it takes quite some time and I just need to either wait it out if I can or gingerly move around without falling or bumping into things.

No different for anyone: Those irritating aerosol cans

 


I do think that this is a problem for  anyone who is blind or sighted.  It is all about those pain in the neck aerosol cans that stop working when the can is still very full.

I absolutely detest those cans when they do this and there is nothing that one can do to bring them back to functioning again.  Believe me, I have tried and have even enlisted the assistance of many willing persons.

I just think that the pumps in these cans are just too small and if one tries to use them with a bit of robustness then here is where the problem lies.  They simply stop working.

I just wish that someone who is listening or reading this blog can share some useful info.

A frustrating experience: Hunting down the rubber band

This is probably one of the most difficult tasks for me, having to hunt down fallen objects that do not make any noise when they drop onto the floor.

Such things as rubber bands, plastic bags, loose leaf papers, and so on. The only time that I can tell that I need to go hunting for them is when I either miss them or I am somehow made aware that they have fallen.

Such was the case recently when the rubber band fell onto the kitchen floor. No, I did not hear it fall and only knew that it had when I went looking for it on my counter and could not find it.

So, off I went, meticulously searching and mildly scolding myself for not having been more careful.  I will tell you that most of the time I do find what I am searching for but there are definitely times when I am unable to find my prey, so to speak!
