A resident of Denmark (For now.)

It’s been a while since I last posted anything, and I need to fix that! I got an email yesterday from the Danish Consulate in NYC, saying I now have a residence permit and will get a card! This was the very final thing I needed to be able to go to Frontrunners and stay in Denmark for the most part of nine months, and I am very glad it’s all done!

In other things, I really need to get on editing some other videos that I have saved up…

CONFIRMATION! THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!

I am very excited to announce that I have tickets to go to Rochester for six days (August 25-30), then off to my next chapter in Denmark with Frontrunners for nine months starting August 31st! I got what was probably one of the best flights ever in terms of timing, cost, and layovers. First from Rochester at 3:30ish to Toronto (a paltry one hour flight), wait there for about four and half hours, then leaving at 9 PM – direct from Toronto to Copenhagen! I’ll be arriving in Copenhagen at around 10:20 AM, so that will give me time to look around a little before taking a three-hour-long horse-drawn carriage (train) ride to Vejle. And Vejle is where I will await my chariot (van) to bear me to Castberggård, where I will spend nine months consorting with like-minded others.

Okay, I might have gone a little over the top at the end there, but I’m excited!

Sign Languages – Wait, there’s more than one?

The article below perfectly sums up what every person who knows sign language has experienced at least once. The fact that so many people are clueless about a multitude of sign languages existing in the world. I mean, did you really think there was only one international sign language while there are so many different spoken languages? Sign language developed the exact same way spoken language did, separately. There are even regional signs, especially here in the US because it’s a big place.

Here’s What You Probably Don’t Know About Sign Language

Found – BSL Zone

Great documentary about three people finding their Deaf identity! I can never emphasize how important it is for Deaf children to have language at a young age, and usually the best option is some form of sign language. I am still dumbfounded by how many people do not understand that more often than not, speech/spoken language is not the best avenue for those who have lost their hearing (hello, unable to hear what’s being said?). I could go on and on, but I won’t. Go watch the video! Perhaps I should make a YouTube video of my thoughts… Hmm…
