Is it just me or is it really hot in here?

Hello, Hello, Hello once again.

I have been watching the program on ABC “Switched on Birth” almost every Monday. How often do we see deaf actors/actresses on weekly TV show as on this show? I know this will be part of history, like Marlee Maitlin as an Academy Award winning actress for her role in the film, “Children of a Lesser God”, and Sean Forbes founder D-PAN and music video artist. Check out an example of Sean’s work:

I am glad that it is still summer. I am not ready to go back to school. I’ve been really enjoying the work-a-day world. . I can’t believe that this is my last year of college, which I am kind of sad about. I did not think that I would be sad when the time came to start a new chapter in my life. I really enjoy myself at RIT. Soon enough, I will start to look for permanent job and to shape the way I want to live my life.

Last Tuesday, I went to watch the Merchant of Venice by the Shakespeare Theatre Company. I saw the interpreter from AAPD orientation. She did a great job interpreting during the play. I was very impressed with her and another interpreter.

Here is my next restaurant goal: Etete’s. I heard how good this restaurant is, which is why it is my next mission to check out here in D.C.: I hope you all are taking advantage of D.C. local restaurants. The local restaurant scene has been really fun and I have had good experiences dining out.

Wow- the heatwave is really crazy here in D.C. 103 degrees on Friday. It felt like 115 degrees, but I was told that the Midwest is much worse than this. I cannot believe that. When I was a young girl, I did not care about finding shade but as I get older, the shade is really important and necessary when it is this hot.

I can not believe only one more weekend left in D.C. then here we go off home. I am looking forward to the rest. At the same time, I am not looking forward to it since I am enjoying myself here in D.C. I know I do need to rest for though. Sometimes I do not understand what that term, rest means.
