ASL update

i haven't posted anything real on my blog in a little over a month now, and it has been getting to me. i keep wanting to, but my pictures haven't been uploaded till now and time just keeps catching up to me. it's already OCTOBER people. october! what? so far my ASL1 class is going well. i realized that the best way to study is by making flashcards... it's only time consuming when you realize this 4 units into the semester. but when you keep up with the units it's much simpler. and i'm all caught up now so it's all good :) i made a friend, a very young friend(a dual-enrolled student that is almost 10 years younger than me, makes me feel quite old), named haley in my class. we're study buddies now. it helps quite a lot to be able to sign back and forth and help correct each other. for sure. so far i am liking it :)

kinetic sculpture

the time has come

if you've been following my blog since the beginning, or if you've known me for the past 6 years... you'd know i've been interested in learning american sign language. after all the talk and no walk, i finally applied to a school and started ASL1 on friday. i don't have too much to say yet, but i love my teacher. she is super nice and enthusiastic. nothing beats that in a teacher. there are about 20 or so students and i'd say only about a 4th of them want to go forward through and become interpreters. i'm still unsure, but that's good enough for me.

our first class we went through fingerspelling(the alphabet) and our next class we will have a quiz on the letters. our teacher, nancy, will visually show us each letter in random and we have to write down which one it is.

i so look forward to being able to communicate through my hands, and meet people with my experience in the deaf community! there are a lot of tasks ahead of me... including writing papers :) we also have a deaf tutor on fridays before class that we communicate with!

so excited!
