Hello everybody, it’s me again.
How are you? Me, I’m fine, but the only thing that’s making me crazy is prepping myself for college, which I’m not looking forward to going to at all. For one thing, the things that happened to me in my American schools that I went to may happen to me again.
I may have so many Braille books that I may have to carry all around again, my homework may not be in Braille again, I may have different textbooks that have nothing to do with the textbooks that the sighted people read, and if I do have my work in Braille, which rarely happens, it is just a lot of things that I can not read at all, and I may have to get my parents to read the print version for me.
Sometimes, I don’t even have any of the textbooks in Braille or on audio, and my poor parents have to read the things for me, and I don’t think it’s fair to them at all. They have other things to do other than read a book that I think I’m responsible for reading.
So, I’m not really looking forward to college at all because I’m afraid that I may have to go through that all over again.
I’m just glad that I have a good memory to remember things that people read to me when not in Braille or on audio because with out it, I would not have graduated from school.
All of you who can see are so lucky because you don’t have to deal with any of the things I had to deal with in school.
Yes, I know it is hard to do all your work, but just put yourselves in a blind persons shoes, and pickture what you would go through.
The textbooks are so small for you guys, you all have like three or four of them, but if you are blind, you get a libreary just for the books you need to read.
My friend back in the States has it good. She doesn’t have to put up with this at all. She gets all her work in Braille, she gets it on audio, and she doesn’t even have to keep carrying all her textbooks because she has them on a little card that she sticks in to a machine that I use as well, and the little card has all her books on it if she has to read them, and they are on audio as well.
Her homework is not on audio, but it’s in Braille and in print for her. The cool thing is that she could read it, but for me, the people who wrote the work could not write not in Braille very good.
Sometimes, I wish I could see the world, and I wish I could see Celine Dion through my eyes, but I can’t. Everytime I listen to her voice, she makes me feel like I’m not blind, and when I’m done, I don’t feel that I see anymore, even if I listen to another persons music.
Anyway, I’m sorry that you needed to hear all of this, but I just want to let you know how much I want to share myself with the world.
I love you all, and I wish you all happiness in the world.
To Dionworshiper, I would like to send you my most thanks because you made me feel so much better.
Maybe I will meet her and feel her beauty, but I doubt that’s going to happen to me.
Oh well, can’t say that I tried to make one of my dreams come true.
I was looking forward to giving her my demo, sculpture, a letter that I wrote to her in French, and a piece of jewelry that I made for her.
I’m excited because when I’m in America again, I’m going to Vegas right after my 20th birthday, wich is on the tenth of August, and I’m going to make my dream of meeting her true. I will not give up at all until it comes true. I just have to get the tickets to the show, and get my gifts ready just in Icase I meet her.
