Hi, everyone! Sorry for the long delay between my last entry and this one, but I’ve had not the best summer, and before that I was busy with the Stella Burry New Beginnings program.
Anyway, I have wonderful personal news. Starting Monday until March, I’m going to be working as an Independent Living Intern for the Independent Living Resource Centre here in St. John’s. This is the place Mom and I have been looking for since last June; it’s the centrepoint of information, resources and communication for people with disabilities.
The internship will involve making connections with the St. John’s community, both the disability community and the wider community, doing presentations for organizations about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities, adaptive technology, and all sorts of stuff. I’m really looking forward to it.
Hugs to everyone!
Hey, everyone! I’ve got some Newfoundland pics up in my gallery, from both St. John’s and Brigus. The direct links are as follows:
Main Newfoundland Gallery: which has a pic of the two flags of Newfoundland, and contains the two below galleries as sub-galleries
St. John’s Gallery: with pictures from a couple of different days, currently mostly of downtown St. John’s, Water St.
Brigus Gallery: with pictures from the trip we took out to my uncle’s townhouse in Brigus in August
Well, arrived in St. John’s at 3:45pm (Newfoundland Time) yesterday, having been up for almost 20 hours at that point (I worked Tuesday night), then went to the hospital to visit Granny, then had dinner with one of my aunts.
Granny was… more responsive yesterday than she’d been since Saturday, so that was good.
Going out to lunch with the cousin who was in Toronto in the fall…
Grandmother had a massive stroke last week, and hasn’t woken up for about 4 days (she ended up with pneumonia on Saturday) so my sister and I are off to St. John’s. Don’t know how long we’ll be gone…
It will depend on the situation there.
Still, I will be glad to see the rest of the family…
