Assorted TV show/podcast thoughts, and controversial thoughts on being childfree

When I was a little girl, my Oma and I enjoyed watching the show called Unsolved Mysteries with one another. Back then this show was hosted by a man named Robert Stack, though I didn’t actually know his name until I’d gotten much older. But sadly, by the time I was a teenager and Googled …

A random yet pleasant dream, more podcast thoughts, book reflections and life

I want to talk about some specific things in the Netflix show called The Society that stood out to me. One thing I felt very strongly about, was about the character named Campbell. When we the viewers first see Campbell interact with a character named Elle, I could tell that something was really off about …

Weird dreams, thoughts on disability, school, world happenings and more

There are a lot of fucked up things happening in the world right now but as I’ve said here before, I’m not looking at social media unless people tag me in things or tell me to look up something specific. But that being said, I do want to acknowledge that I never thought I’d live …

American Sign Language 101: Triumph of the Spirit, book report

In reading the book Triumph of the Spirit, I felt angry until nearly the end of the book. Although I am a hearing person, I’m also blind and have cerebral palsy. I believe that me having these disabilities gives me insights into this story that non-disabled folks may not have. I also believe I have …

Thoughts on some Netflix shows, consent and other important issues

In my Facebook memories, a couple of the posts I’d written about consent and boundaries have come up recently. And so, I thought that I’d talk about those things now, as I don’t think that they can ever be talked about too much. And not just that, but consent and boundary setting/boundary enforcing, are all …

The podcast is called LGBTQ&A; and in one episode of this show, its host Jeffrey Masters talks with a woman named Robyn (who was close friends with Whitney Houston, a well-known pop star). In this interview, Robyn talks about …

Assorted music, podcast and book thoughts and childfree musings

In the Facebook group entitled Amazing Childfree Singles, someone posted a topic asking what people’s likes and dislikes were, when it comes to potential romantic partners they may have. What I wrote in response to said thread reads:I love: directness, both in terms of being direct myself and receiving directness from others. Dealbreakers: republicans; if …

Should we or shouldn’t we? About equal access…or lack thereof

When it comes to equal access, blind people in particular, are usually an afterthought. So when I heard that Elizabeth Warren (who was running for President this year) actually came up with her campaign merchandise with blind people at the forefront of discussions about it, I was elated!! Even nowadays, I believe her campaign website …

TV show thoughts, getting to know me, podcast thoughts and more

After posting my last blog entry, I realized that I forgot to mention something that describes the game called Henry. What I’d forgotten to say about this game, was that in the bottom center of Henry’s platform, there’s a weirdly-shaped button that players can press to shuffle the 16-panel square buttons. There is also another …

A few trips down memory lane, a rant, podcast thoughts and more

In the latest Multiamory episode, Jase, Emily and Dedeker talk with someone who specializes in showing people the myriad ways that consent comes up in our over all lives. And one of the things that listening to this Multiamory episode brought up for me, was that this guest talked about how our bodies tend to …
