Here I come again. Over the last weekend, I went on a road trip with my friends. I drove, and my friends kept me company by chatting with me. I would probably be the one who talks to my friends more. You may think how dangerous it would be for me to talk, but I am used to it and I did not need to be looking at my friend. I still paid attention to the road. It does take a lot of practice. Those who aren't experts, don't try it. We went to a beach and got some suntan and swam some and ate shrimps fresh from the sea. Then, we went to a deaf festival where they had booths, stage shows, and people crowds. It was a fun-filled day. I found much information that I am interested in such as taking scuba diving lessons with a deaf instructor from Aqua Hands! Check out at www.aquahands.com.
I met an amazing deaf performer who signed songs so well, who is also the actress from the TV show 'Switched At Birth'!!! Her name is T.L. Forsberg. We had our picture taken! It will be one of my cherished lifetime memories. I have met so many old and new faces at the festival. I had taken so many pictures on my digital camera, but I accidentally deleted the whole thing! Tsk tsk! I'm so glad I took some on my phone that meant a lot to me. I will be posting a picture of me with T.L. Forsberg. I also met a deaf director, Roger Vass, from ASL Films (www.aslfilms.com). He's a wonderful inspiration to most of us with all his amazing work for many films. I have always enjoyed going to the deaf events. It gives me an opportunity to socialize with the deaf/ hearing people who know or are learning sign languages and make some new friends and to meet some celebrities! I always look forward to going to them because it is one of my passions to stay in touch with my world. ~
