Re: Hey everyone



That reminds me. Last April I had a can of potato chips and well one of the guys in my class's girl friend came by for lunch every day. He gave her the can and when she opened it those gag snakes popped out at her. It was hilarious and I got it on video.


Re: Hey everyone



That would have been hilarious pranks! Haha that must have been fun!


Re: Hey everyone



Your welcome. It's located in Minnesota which is where I'm from.

Re: Hey everyone



In answer to your question Ana about the camp I went to, the organization that hosts the program is called blind incorperated and the camp is called life 101. I think the name of the camp changed since I've been there. If your interested go to www.blindinc.org
Hope this helps!


Re: Hey everyone



Congratulations on getting into school, great stuff! I know I had to get scholarships, loans and such for college. I found all kinds of community groups that offered scholarship. You know that your state chapters of NFB and ACB offer scholarships, you should check into that too. Every dollar counts for trying to pay for college.

Congrats on getting into dog guide training!

The pranks sound funny, as long as they are not serious enough to get you into trouble.

Keep making things happen!

Transition programs are great places to learn and improve skills for employment and school.

Re: Hey everyone



awesome,to wich camp did u went?


Re: Hey everyone



Oh yeah I forgot to mention in my last reply that I did an 8 minute speech at the detroit convention for the national organization of parents of blind children. I only had three days to prepare for it. Everyone from the camp was so proud of me for doing it. One day when I was walking to a different activity at the hotel one of the parents at that seminar said you did a good job on your speech and I said thank you.


Re: Hey everyone



Yes it was a summer camp for the blind. I went there for five summers in a row. The last two summers I went I stayed for two months and I went to the nfb conventions in Detroit and Texas which were awesome except for general session which I tried to sleep through but it didn't work.


Re: Hey everyone



that's a funny prank!, was in a summer camp for the blind?


Re: Hey everyone



Speaking of pranks, when I was at a summer program for two months in 2010 we did an awesome prank. We taped all the silverware to the director's office door, we moved all the dining room tables in front of the front door, and we moved a power show down table into the large dining room and put a sign on it saying play me. It was so fun!


Re: Hey everyone



Wow! Now that's hilarious! I wonder if something like that might happen while I'm there. I'm definitely looking forward to it.


Re: Hey everyone



That's an awesome prank.


Re: Hey everyone



Lucky you Lindsay :) I was 16 when I went so the closest person to my age was 19. I had so much fun there though. One of the other students and I pranked one of the instructors by putting his fake eye in the guys cup of water. The whole dining room couldn't stop laughing.


Re: Hey everyone



hi! nothing much just chatting on fb what about u guys?


Re: Hey everyone



I certainly hope so. At SCAD they have industry professionals teaching so I know I'd learn what I need to and be able to network so I can get jobs. Unfortunately the place isn't cheap. So scholarships and what not are my best bet.


Re: Hey everyone



Hey Lindsay,
Your welcome. It's good that your getting a student loan and several . . scholarships. I bet those will help with the cost of the college your going to.


Re: Hey everyone



Thanks. Cool that sounds neat. I wonder if the summer program I'm going to in July is similar... Yeah I've been busy with school too. Right now I'm working on a animation for one of my classes and then there's loads of scholarships I'm working on since I literally find out one or two months before deadline. One thing I know is I'll be entering a lot of them. Hopefully with a combination of collective scholarships and a student loan I'll be able to afford to attend at SCAD in a couple of years. Right now I'm preparing for their graphic novel design contest as long as there's no set genre I should have one ready by then.


Re: Hey everyone



Congratulations in getting excepted to gtcc! I'm not really doing much. i went to a party type thing at the transition program I'm going to next year so that was fun. I've just been busy with school.


Re: Hey everyone



Nothing much. My physical therapy is going well for my back. I learned that in June at Leader dogs my class'll consist of 3 18 year olds, 2 20 year olds and 2 40 year olds. Today I got my acceptance letter to GTCC too so now I'm officially enrolled in college. I'm entering a graphic novel design scholarship contest when it opens.
Pretty much everything's good.

What about you?
