Getting More Motivated To Use The Cane

As you know, I am
On The waiting list
For a guidedog. I’m just wondering, how could I get motovated to use the cane more? I use it in collige, and am doing the route home every monday night, but I still feel i don’t use it enough. I just find it hard to remember all the details of routes. Plus, I want to get really confident on a route so that i can know it off by heart. By the way, I use it about 60 % of the time. Maybe less, I’m not sure lol.

Thanks for any suggestions. Sorry for the randomness.


Is It Normal?

Is it normal to want to change your career after wanting to be a socialworker? I’m not sure.

I have always wanted to be a socialworker. I was all set to do it
Last Year
But I had to do
The Night Classes
In GCSE Maths and English. That was fine. I was aiming to finish them for the socialwork thing, but since i’ve been on
That Computer Course
I’ve started to re think my options. Is this normal? I now want to work with something related to assistive technology. I’m still going to volunteer in socialwork settings, but don’t know if I will do socialwork.

Thoughts greatly appreciated. I really hope this is normal!!!!


When Did This Happen?

I was back at the
Cedar Foundation
Today after
Being Off For Three Weeks
And I had to do a resource on how to use
Skype
So when I went on the website, and clicked the link to
Download
The latest version, as it was quite an old version on the computer, I discovered at the top of the page, that it said “We recommend that blind and visually impaired people use
Skype 3.8 For Windows
and do not upgrade to 4.0 this time. Accessibility features have not yet been completed in the new release.”

That would explain why the new menus won’t work!!!! I thought that the scripts weren’t that good, but apparently they must be fine!!! Just out of curiosity, when did this appear? That is so cool that they are thinking about accessibility!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t need to even bother with the scripts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
