Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that you can watch the Paralympics live and archived on Youtube by typing paralympicsporttv into the search box! I encourage you to watch it! It will definitely inspire you!
Anyway, school is starting and with it comes a lot of new things and new adventures! New teacher, new grade and new courses! I'm quite excited for this school year! I am taking Biology, Math, French, Christian Studies, English, Social Studies, Graduation Planning, Foods and my favorite, Writing Fiction! The Writing Fiction course will be critiqued by an actual author! I'm not really used to writing fiction but I'm hoping it will push me out of my comfort zone and make me a better writer by the end of it. I am the least excited about French but I need it to get into University, so I will deal with it! I'm quite happy that I am just taking Biology because, to tell you the truth, I stink at Chemistry and Physics! I love Biology and am pretty good at it, not to toot my own horn! But whenever it involves math, my brain has a little "freak out" and shuts down...I am most definitely more right brained than left! Which is why I am so excited to take English this year! I always love the section where I get to pick my own novel to study! This English class has a new excited twist...I get to pick my own Shakespeare novel! If there is an "easier" Shakespeare novel....I'll pick that one! Any suggestions!?
I get to return to my beloved Vancouver this October as well! I have to get a new seating system for my wheelchair which is always a "joy"! Here's a basic run down of the process: Go to "Sunnyhill" (the hospital I see my OT in) and wait for my OT to appear. Get assessed by a guy I don't even know for the back of my seating system. This entails being poked and moved around and looked at, still all by a guy that I just met. Get out of my seat and into another seat to make the moldes for the back. Get back into my seat. Go to the "Ability Store" in New Westminster to have the bottom of the seat made. Poked and moved again. The old bottom of the seat is replaced with a new bottom and......done! It's not all fun and games, actually it's quite exhausting and it definitely tries my patience! Nevertheless it must be done! So there's a glimpse into that wonderful experience! Glad it's me and not you, eh!?
So anyway, I am just sitting at the table, looking at the moon, and thinking to myself, what a wonderful world....Goodnight!
