Hi guys,
Sorry if it's a bit late for replying to this post but I thought I would anyway because I don't have anything else to do today except enjoy my spring break. How's everybody today?


Re: new girl



Cool!


Re:new girl



It’s really great that we get to meet so many people like us who have problems with their vision and come and interact with each other here!! I’ve been coming here for a few months now and have made a lot of friends and now I look forward to coming here everyday and spending some time here as I have no one else to talk to at home!! I love to write and spend my free time writing stories and poems!!

Re:new girl



Hi! I am not taking any other accelerated classes besides science. That's cool that you want to research retinal disorders, I would really love to go into medicine. Oh wait, I'm taking an accelerated math class, geometry, oops I forgot that one. I really stink at English, I guess it shows. I was just wondering what kind of music do you like? Btw, typo, my name isn’t aland it’s Alana.


Re:new girl



eh... Names Rachel. Welcome to AFB and nice to meet you. I am a total as well, and 17. I am in to the higher sciences or rather the humanities. I am a bit of a humanitarian, but then again... and I am in the tip of California.

Btw, Aland I could barely understand your post, as it was so full of grammatical and spelling errors. I had to read between the lines.


Re:new girl



Hey!
I am a total science obsessed person as well.I take Honors Chemistry and I work in a lab at SUNY Stony Brook University! I love science I want to research retinal disorders and get a PhD in Computational Biology. Do you take any other higher level classes?

Katy is a girl who used to talk on here. Unfortunately, she passed away about a month or so ago.


Re:new girl



Hi Rebecca, I turned 16 in august and I'm a junior. I only had a tiny bet of inner peripheral but now only sunlight allows me to see anything. I was just wondering, people have been talking about someone named Katy a lot, who is she???
