Talking about Blindness

When I started this site, I thought I would write more about my blindness. In short order, I realized I wasn’t as comfortable writing about my blindness as I thought I was when I started. I wanted people to interact with me and this website based on what I say about politics, books, and the rest of the things I talk about.

I have slowly realized that one of the ways to help people learn to understand and appreciate me for the things I like about myself is for me to be more open about my blindness. The reality is blindness is something that is different from me than most people. It’s something most people will wonder about and have questions. If I’m willing to answer questions in private, I should be willing to answer them here. Also, I share so much about my life I feel like not sharing about my blindness is a bit disingenuous.

Maybe it’s the understanding that my life isn’t, in this important way, what I ever imagined having. Maybe it’s the frustration that I’m not sure how my single status will end. Maybe it’s the recognition that my single status may never end. Most likely, it’s all of the above that have resulted in me thinking ore about my single status lately than I have for months.

Married at First Sight Season Seven Review

Yes, I watch Married at First Sight. Yes, I’m very late with this review. I know season eight has begun.

I’m late because I watch the show with Aunt Barb, who got me into it, and we haven’t had time to finish. But I have caught up on what was the weirdest season so far.

Now because the Internet is clamoring for someone who has never been married to review a show on marriage, here is my review.

My 2018

I’m a little late with this, but it’s time to recap my 2018. On the whole, 2018 was a great year for me. I left 2018 feeling as good about the future as I can remember.

This year in review will have two main sections:

  • Accomplishments
  • Things that Didn’t go as Planned
