Answering mom’s questions.

Yeah, this one’s a bit late, I got distracted by Twitter and various other things and am just getting to blogging! I’m going to cheat a bit in this post, and answer multiple questions that will only need 2-3 sentence answers. They’re questions that my mom seems to ask over and over again, and she

Day 14: having fun!

What do you do for fun? Well, I surf the web a lot, like almost all day. I listen to a lot of podcasts and watch a lot of video streams. I’m very fortunate that I do get to go to church once a week, and I really enjoy that! I also consider blogging a

Day 13: working.

Do you work? Regular readers to the blog will probably know that I’m an SSA recipient, so no I don’t work. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t done my share of job searching, or had my fair share of internships and volunteer opportunities. I ended up doing the job search thing for about 9 years,

Day 12: dogs and my cat.

Do you have a guide dog? I’m one of those people that’s actually really, really bad with cardinal directions! Apparently, a dog doesn’t help with that, so I’m not a good candidate for one. On top of that, I live in a place with a lot of concrete and very little grassy area. So no

Day 11: money.

How do you differentiate between denominations of currency? I usually don’t carry cash, (that way I don’t have to end up dealing with all different amounts of change, having to dig it out etc.) When I do, I fold the bills different ways. It’s a bit different with coins though. Coins are all different sizes

Day 10: colors and clothes.

Since I skipped day 7, and I don’t particularly want to write a post for it, (since it’s already passed,) I’m going to answer 2 questions in a single post. How do people explain colors to you? This is actually done by association. What I mean by that is equating colors with something I already

Day 9: sleeping and sleep schedules.

How do you sleep? Can you keep a sleep schedule? People ask me this a lot now because of the commercials they see on TV about Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder, (Wikipedia.) I could try and explain it, but it’s easier to quote the article, so that I don’t get any facts wrong. Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder (non-24),

Day 8: living arrangements.

Before I get to the question yeah, I did skip last night’s post, (woops!) I fell asleep until like 11, and then decided that it was too late for answering questions, (and I just wanted to go to bed anyway,) so I’ll be answering two questions sometime in the next couple days to make that

Day 6: web access.

How accessible are websites to you? What can developers do to make their sites more accessible? Let me just start out by saying that accessibility is completely relative! It might be accessible to me, but inaccessible to someone who’s only been using a screen reader for a few months, I’ve been using them since about

Day 5: reading.

So I was actually going to answer a question that would have went nicely with yesterday’s post. However it would have taken a much longer answer from me, instead I’ll answer this question, and save that one for another day, (probably tomorrow.) Do you read braille? People often ask how I read etc. I’m able
