What it Means to be Me

An update as it's been awhile @ 05:24 pm

Current Mood: lazy lazy

It is about time I write in this journal again. I haven't done so since August. Shame shame...
The end of August found the Fall 2011 semester starting. I did all independent study classes last semester in various areas of assistive technology. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. I took twelve hours and came out of it with seven good-sized papers to show for myself. I also, as said in an earlier entry, helped out with the braille course leading the reading sessions for one of the sections (there were two classes this semester instead of the usual one due to the greater number of students). I was glad to be able to help out with that again as it really is fun.
I spent the holidays in Delaware with my family, which was very enjoyable. My Christmas and New Year's were quiet and spent with family and friends. My goal for next New Year's, though, is to spend it in TIme Square. It's just oe of those things that I want to do at least once, even if the experience is horrible and I don't end up liking it. I want to figure that out for myself by actually going there. Call me crazy if you want, it's perfectly okay!
Last Saturday found me packing a few things, leaving Delaware and heading to West Haven, Connecticut to complete my last semester of grad school in the form of an internship at the VA hospital here. I have survived my first week, which is a good thing. I am an intern in the blind rehab department. There is another intern who started the same time I did, and it is nice that I am not the only one in that same boat. She is really nice and I'm glad to have the chance to get to know her more. She is an O&M intern while I am doing VRT.
I like what I know of this area so far, and the house where I am staying is very nice. The woman from who I am renting has two dogs and two cats of her own, and all animals get along, which helps. I do miss Illinois, but I will be back for graduation. Flight prices are kind of high, (I looked just for the heck of it today), but I will be there, believe me, in some way or other. I will not miss graduation that is for sure!
Today has been a very lazy Saturday, and I am perfectly okay with that. Laundry is getting done as I write, though. Tomorrow shall consist of groceries being delivered, (yay Peapod!), football and a conference call. Monday it's back to work. I am excited for that, though. I am slowly but surely learning the route to work and my way around the building. I must thank my dog for his help in all of that. He seems to like the new routine, too. (He is currently on the floor chewing a bone, no doubt glad to rest. Maybe it's a lazy Saturday for him, too!).
I hink that is all I have to update on. I can't think of anything else to add at the moment. I will be back with more as it happens. It really is good to write in here again.

Yays! I'm so glad you updated. I've been meaning to message you to see how you're doing, but I don't think we're on messenger at the same times.

What is it like working at the VA hospital? What exactly are you teaching there? Keep updating!
