    the next step towards becoming an interperter

    My journey so far has been long and arduous. I recently completed my AAS in ASL. While my program was not specifically an ITP, I did take a few courses on interpreting as well as intern with a local school's interpreting office. After completing my degree, I feel there's a small disconnect from...

    Interning with a local school system.

    As I'm entering my last semester at my ITP, one of my requirements is to find an internship for the duration of the semester. I managed to land one with the school system where I live, in which I will be shadowing interpreters, and perhaps taking on some light-duty interpreting. The interpreting...

    sign for Buddhism?

    In preparation for my ASL assignment this week, I'm trying to pick out some vocab I will need for the assignment. I'm having trouble finding a sign for "Buddism." Does anyone on here know of one or is it to be fingerspelled? None of the online dictionaries I've seen have it listed. I'm actually...

    Lately, Ive been had a hard time putting myself in front of a camera and recording my ASL assignments. The reason I surmise is because I'm afraid of my imperfections. The pauses, the "stutters," the wrong signs, wrong syntax. I don't really know how else to put it. I'm just too afraidf of...

    I'm getting published!

    I received my narrative assignment back from my Comp II Honors professor a few days ago, and he was very impressed with it-so much that he encouraged me to submit it to the school's annual literary journal. So this December, I'll be able to boast about having my work in publication. A lot of...

    Court To Reconsider Whether Ups Can Bar Deaf Drivers From Lightweight Vans

    What really burns my biscuits is most tenured UPS employees seem to be against Deafies driving for the company. Yeah, and I wonder how much a safety concern all the drivers chatting up on their cell phones is. :roll:

    what does this sign mean?

    I've seen this sign used a lot lately, but no idea what it means. With both palms facing down, one hand arches over the other wrist, perpindicularly. It kind of looks like "night," or possibly "English," but I don't think it is. This sign is more towards the back of the wrist. Can anyone help me?
