Looking for a Pen Pal to befriend!

Hello, my name is Taylor (female, by the way). I'm 18 years old and I've always wanted a pen pal. I am not blind but I've always had questions about it and how life is lived differently! Of course that's a minimal interest in meeting a new friend, but I would love to get to know your interests, hobbies, etc. I'd love to hear from one of you! :)

Re: Looking for a Pen Pal to befriend!

Hi Taylor,
My name is Abby. I am 19. I don't think it's very different to be blind then to be sighted. I know the sighted do things faster then the blind, but we as blind people have to adapt to what is going on around us like everyone does. I've been blind all my life and I can't see anything except light which can be useful at times. I'd post my e-mail, but they would remove it. The blind can do almost all the things that the sighted can do we just do things differently. Sorry if this is to long of a reply, but I'd thought I'd give you my perspective on what it is like to be blind. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask them.
