Live long, and prosper

I'm alive!

I know, I know, It is a miracle. Twitter has been the way I'm keeping up with a lot of people these days, but I find I miss LJ, (as I always do after a few months of absence). I've been reading a lot of your entries, (even if comments have been sparse).

I'm in the home stretch of my undergraduate career. I basically hate Belmont, (they enjoy making my life difficult), but other than that, I think things are moving along smoothly. I am stressed to the absolute limit, but what can you do. What must be done must be done.

I'm trying to sell a Juliet Pro60 braille embosser, a Voice Sense notetaker, and a SyncBraille 32 braille display. All prices are negotiable at this point since I need money so desperately. The situation is really bad. I don't want to go into too much detail, but trust me when I say I'm so deep in the hole, finding a way out almost feels impossible sometimes.

In good news, I'm in a loving, nurturing relationship. Kevin is absolutely the most wonderful man in the world...well I think so at least. We aren't without are problems sometimes, but we always communicate, and it is never a mystery to me hat he's thinking. This is a refreshing change.

I have also figured out what I'm doing post graduation. I'll be in Dallas for the NFB convention in July, then it is off to Louisiana Center for the Blind for me. For those who don't know, it is a 6-9 month independence training program which will help me brush up on and improve a lot of my skills. I'm coming in with a reasonably high skill set, but I've lost a lot of vision over the past six years, and feel like this will not only improve my skills in many areas, but my confidence as well. I plan to start a training blog, (which also will deal with other blindness related issues). Kevin is helping me develop this idea more, so I will keep you all posted.

If anyone wants the equipment mentioned above, or more information, please EMail me at brileyp@gmail.com. Feel free to pass it on to anyone who wants it. It is serious, and I am even willing to consider payment plans, (provided the person is trustworthy).

There is a lot more to report, but this will have to do for now. I must head off to the bank then kick myself until I finish this homework. Boo.

Miss you all!


The Good News: I get to take a songwriting class with Ginnie Owens.

The Bad News: I don't get to graduate until August.

That is all for now.

God is God, and I am not. Comforting, I must say.

$35,000 for this?

Today in Intro to Recording Technology, I learned that you can indeed fit 14 people in a whisper room with minimal discomfort...

Mr. I-am-perpetually-stuck-in-traffic-and-have=no-idea-how-to-oporate-a-mac-even-though-I-claim-to-be-an-expert-at-pro tools
left the class for fifteen minutes looking for the right cable, got the wrong one, so disappeared again. The entire class except for one loser piled in the whisper room. A great lesson for so much money a year.

This class is so pointless.

In other news, the meds are working. I'm not quite so crazy anymore, which is nice. I still have a lot to work through, but for now, I'm ok.
Still need to write my LJ Idol entry...hmm..."hope."...wish I hadn't used my bye.
