If you practice ASL only from a book, and/or with other students on Skype, without a qualified instructor to correct you, chances are you will pick up bad habits and errors in your mechanics, if left uncorrected, all of your effort will...

Other great grandfather was a runaway snake oil salesman from Indiana who got into some trouble, and...

    Is "So You Want to Be an Interpreter?" still good?

    Fine line between professionalism and overboard, definitely! I thought the whole reason to become an interpreter is because you get along with the community, not distance yourself from it.

    Stick with your own kind? or Mix it up!

    Stick with your own kind? or Mix it up!

    Hmm, I'd say procreating with alike backgrounds, otherwise globalization happens and culture disappears, granted new culture would be created, but I'm just fine being 100% northern european. (mainly Celtic)!

    "Sound and Fury," tonight in class. The coda mother (Marie I think), and the hearing grandparents, let's just say I didn't like them one bit!, the grandmother was patronizing her family with complete lack of respect for their opinion.

I saw a funny bumper sticker the other day, "Politicians and diapers, need to be replaced, for...

    Population Control

    For it, in the past the reason why families had so many children was because maybe one or two survived to adulthood, we don't have that problem anymore. So i think it's irresponsible to have more than two children, two keeps the population stable, one is even better because it would cut the...

    Best city for Deaf people?

    If you don't like heat, I wouldn't advise Arizona last summer our average was over 120, highest was 128. My teacher said that Riverside is where it's at.
