Deaf Child VS Deaf Adult
Busy Hands Yes it has been ages since my last post. The vlog will explain my absence a bit. Unfortunately the vlog is quite blurry so I'm not sure how much you will be able to understand :\ But I'm including a transcription though... Eventually I'll have to figure how to make my webcam work better... or get a better one? I was pretty excited about this vlog because it shows how ...

I now work as a chambermaid and am sharing a charming old apartment with a good friend who is also deaf. A total new experience, to live with someone deaf, and to be able to sign in ASL on a regular basis! My signing is d...

Updates of all Sorts
Busy Hands I recently learned two new signs. Avocado and a new sign for mainstream, in the sense where you were the only deaf student in the mainstream as opposed to being mainstreamed with several other deaf students. I recently caught that sign in a random vlog where a lady explained that she was not the only deaf student when she was being mainstreamed. I really like that [...]

Bah, heh. I can understand ASL but i have a tough time [...]

Questions about what Deaf Culture Promotes
Busy Hands It's no surprise that a lot of the people from the outside view the Deaf community as a community that wants to isolate themselves from the "outside world aka hearing world". Also some believe that the Deaf community in general are anti hearing aids and anti cochlear implants. They believe that Deaf culture promotes that type of thinking.I really disagreed with that [...]

Would anybody like to help?
Busy Hands I have been wanting to do a video where a SEE [Signed Exact English] signer and an ASL signer signs out the same story. It would be two seperate videos. I would do the SEE video [as that is what i used while growing up and i am not a fluent ASL signer at all yet], and a fluent or native ASL signer could do their own video. Then we would be able to show people the [...]

Help Save Deaf Theater
Busy Hands I just recently watched a very emotional and beautifully signed video about how Deaf Theater needs to be saved. You can view it here, click on the first video you see on the top [it has a woman in the image]. It's subtitled so it's accessible for anybody who can read. The video was produced to encourage Deaf people, and anybody who cares, to get politically active [...]
