are you back home now?
It's expected, although can be annoying for the sisters lol
are you the oldest then?
oh btw, no we didn't get to learn braille properly but there were stalls which had stuff for learners and I've got this leaflet thing which teaches you the alphabet and numbers.
aww she's still little, are you over-protective of her?
yep and today was less tiring although I was still drained out by the end of the day - its hard work guiding the blind!
LOl at 'adorable' !
awww, thats cute! How much younger is your sister? Yh if I was her I would've ran for my life lol well actually now I wouldn't cuz I know its best to stand still otherwise the dogs gna come after you even more!
Today I was ok, no dog touched me or freaked me out too much lol
(I did accidently post this on my wall too lol)
Lol I was actually spazzing like a maniac whenever one touched me! But thankfully I dont think anyone realised lol. I was chased by a stray dog once which just made my fear worse. Last year I was at the beach and this little dog walks past, unleashed and I actually got scared of it...I tripped over some rocks and fell - SO EMBARRASSING lol
lol yh it might be an asian thing
err I hope you enjoy reading that :O
But yeah, it was an amazing experience which I can't really put into words. It just seems like I've done a simple thing but I'm sure I've learnt loads from it, and its taken me out of m small mind and made me realise that the views I held before weren't entirely true or I just really didn't know enough about this. Also, I have so much respect for those people who make all those gadgets & I see how our entertainment products entertainment can make those peoples lives SO much easier. It is SO great and SO cool!
Also made me think about how blind people aren't as judgemental and prejudiced, as normal people, which was a nice thought lol and tbvh I didn't feel extremely sorry for my client as she seemed to lead a good life, obviously not being able to see is really horrible but still...although others were worse off than her & I did feel really sorry for them
The last 2 msgs are copied and pasted, so I dunno if they make complete sense to you, lol. I'm scared of dogs - that might help you understand the dog bit.
The actual exhibition was for ICT products to help the blind, e.g stuff to connect to ipads, iphones, computers etc etc, walking sticks with hazard sensors! And loads of other really cool stuff!! My client was proper into her technology, she knew everything about them lol but if you think about it they make their loves so much easier so its really good for them to have these products, but they're so expensive!!
Most of the dogs were alright but some were just too touchy, feely, yuck! My client had a friend who had a dog and it just loved to wag its tail on you and just go right up to you and shake itself - even my client didn't like that dog! Others were just scary, mostly the black ones!
Dunno if you wanted to read all that, but essay over!
At first I couldn't really find anyone to help and me and my friends were just amazed at how one of the girls just went up to a person and started guiding them cuz we felt kinda scared and nervous, but then we waited around for a bit and I found someone too.
This old lady came from Scotland for the 3 day exhibition and she came every year. She knew like atleast 1 person to every stall we went to lol and she loved talking hehe. But she was so lovely and ...normal. I didn't really expect anything different but jsut seeing her and talking to her really made me think about how amazing these people are!
