Re: just beginning to live!



I'm happy to chat with anyone. I love meeting new people. I mostly write about my experiences going blind and being blind. I don't lament. Most of what I write involves making fun of awkward experiences that I have had. Some of my writing is just obscure and about nothing in particular lol. I use writing to express how I feel, so most of the time it is happy. I'm in Ohio so it's freezing right now lol.


Re: just beginning to live!



Hi Bret,
I've been blind all my life. One of my friends went blind when she was ten so she can remember what things look like. I like pottery as well. It was one of my favorite subjects in school.

Re: just beginning to live!



Cool! I'm not very good at art except for maybe writing. I love reading and writing as well as listening to music and movies. I am in college studying education, but I'm thinking of switching to child psychology. I bet your artwork is awesome. Have you been doing pottery for a long time?

Re: just beginning to live!



Hi Brett, I'm really happy that you are so happy! I went through the same thing that you are going through now so I know how you feel. It's so great that you're choosing to be positive instead of being all, "wo is me." I hope you enjoy everything that life has to offer. Btw, I'm not usually this sappy lol What sorts of things do you enjoy?
