I grew up, as you probably know, with ASL but then I was oral mainstreamed. Strange how all these years later certain signs feel *natural* to me. I mention in other thread I start watching Lee BSL songs because it was at least *my* music in a way. Then I start to have his playlist on all day at work and begin to get confused by certain signs he was doing so switch back to ASL playlist.
How do you think you will manage /voice. I do not think you are just yet so curious.
