    Good Afternoon Somnus!
    --Awwww thanx for the congrats on my clases
    & being consoling w/my volunteer woes ,
    I really appreciate it.
    I only have 1 more month now &
    a week left then its over finally.
    --Wow are they xray exams harder
    involving actual people?
    I would think hat would
    make you even more nervous.
    --Yeah NetFlix is full of
    ish I'm def not a fan of theirs.
    --Yep well at least I know now what to expect
    once I get into the field, I'll need to make job
    opportunities happen for myself legally of course lol;
    but it does give me plenty of ideas futuristically
    when it comes to Networking w/ppl.
    --Hmmm I hope the Japanese
    LA of Promised Neverland
    isn't as horrible as AoT was a few years ago.
    --Yeah I try to check here bi-weekly if possible
    I'm just so crazy busy that its not
    happening when I want to.
    --I am very much looking forward
    to volunteering somewhere
    next year & I will most likely be
    doing it simultaneously
    as I am in the B.A ITP for the next 2 years.
    --How was ya shift during Halloween?
    See any goblins or werewolves?
    --Ready for Thanksgiving?

    Gd Evening Somnus!
    Long time no see lady.
    I was afraid U had vanished on me lmao.
    -My current classes are going very well thanx for asking.
    So far I'm passing all of my current classes
    w/''A'' & ''B'' grades on all of my assignments & quizzes.
    I just passed one of my midterms w/an ''A'' yay lol,
    now its just the others I need to worry about.
    -My classes this semester give us a
    ton of homework like its our major.
    Its expected but quite annoying.
    -Yes my major needs in-person contact
    in order to truly flourish as a signer.
    U need to be a proficient signer
    before you can ever hope to interpret anything.
    My biggest problem is I have never been able
    to find locations that had deaf ppl frequent
    which in turn would give me the exposure
    I need to American Sign Language &
    help me become a fluent signer.
    All the places we were told to attend
    weren't doing anything on a regular basis
    enough for me to truly benefit socially.
    Its been a total of 10 yrs before any
    interpreters I know was willing
    to admit they had privileges
    that I have never even dreamed of.
    Now after all this time they wanna
    wake up & realize the error of their ways
    after the damage has been done ugh.
    I understand they were born into privileges
    blindly & couldn't help that but their
    dismissal attitude was unnecessary
    & rude at the time of my struggle.
    One in particular would grate my nerves
    he would talk *%+$ to my face long
    before attending a workshop
    where he was forced to acknowledge
    his ugly ways via an epiphany.
    Now his ass is feeling guilty
    & is offering to help me *rolls eyes*
    -Welp now after all this
    time I've recently found several
    places on my own where I could have
    been of volunteering all along
    during the last 10 yrs but
    never knew they existed bcuz
    noone was willing to help me.
    Some of those places have since
    closed down but a few are still in business.
    I will be contacting them very soon
    so that I can set something up
    & begin volunteering in 2021.
    -Promised Neverland is being
    made into a Live Action?
    How is that gonna work?
    -Ur 3 areas: X-rays, fluoroscopic, & surgical exams
    seem very difficult to memorize.
    Do U engage in study sessions
    w/other students prior to exams?
    -italki is just for practicing foreign languages.
    It let's U search for a formal aka professional
    & informal aka community non certified
    tutor who is fluent in a specific language
    & then U book a tutoring session w/them
    which vary in prices based on minutes offered.
    So far I have 2 tutors I
    am working with right now.
    One is Deaf & the other a CODA,
    that is someone who has deaf parents
    but they themselves were born hearing.
    She gives me assignments to do
    & we review it at the following MTG.
    My other tutor who is deaf tutor gives me assignments
    & then we practice going over them in ASL
    in each lesson we have weekly.
    Its awesome & I hate I hadn't heard of it yrs ago.
    -I will be applying to the B.A. interpreter program
    next Spring for sure so wish me luck.
    -Netflix claims to own the anime series
    it shows but in reality they don't own sh**
    & these distribution deals are really exclusives
    NOT gaining the rights to the series.
    Many anime fans don't like it
    bcuz they feel that good anime shows
    are locked on NetFlix & can't be viewed elsewhere
    depending where they live in the world.
    Its like NetFlix & HuLu
    decided let's all buy up all the popular
    anime shows so we can make millions
    of $$$$ from this niche market.
    I myself have about 3 other sites that
    I can in fact stream & download
    anime series & movies from regularly.
    None of them are CrunchyRoll lol.
    There is one site I just discovered
    I really wanna sign
    up w/but won't until I
    get a new phone bcuz
    the current one is crap.
    -I am currently reading BeaStars
    the manga lol I should've
    been done reading it but my homework
    prevents that fm happening.
    -Are U ready for Halloween?

    Good Evening Somnus!
    -Yes I am glad I passed all of my classes
    & thanks for the congrats.
    I am now counting the days for Fall semester
    to begin, its taking too long lol.
    Fall officially begins on Sept 22 2020
    just in case U were wondering.
    -As for volunteering places
    I have now decided to apply to
    3 GoodWill stores, & 1 nonprofit
    Speech Therapy organization.
    These places all have special
    departments that cater to
    Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing customers.
    They even welcome volunteering so
    its a nobrainer for me.
    I left the other places alone
    because the Pandemic has messed
    up everyone's businesses & its gonna
    be too hard trying to volunteer at restaurants & cafe's
    where there is no deaf section among regular hearing people;
    especially with people fighting for jobs once everything
    is safe to reopen on a regular basis.
    Whereas these other places have a dept dedicated to them.
    I still plan on volunteering at the chapel on Sundays
    once churches & chapels reopen for good after the virus is contained.
    -I just began tutoring w/a Deaf tutor, we
    had our first meeting tonight.
    I def plan on meeting w/him in the AM
    because lighting is too hard to see me
    in poorly lighted rooms ugh.
    I had to even make a Skype account again.
    The program I'm using is called: italki
    ever heard of it?
    They specialize in languages & setting
    you up w/live tutoring sessions.
    Its really cool & refreshing.
    My next lesson is next Friday morning.
    -Congrats on finishing up ya courses.
    What are required competencies for the board mean?
    -Wow you had to stay for 5 weeks?
    What all did they have U do?
    -I saw the first season of Promised Neverland
    it was really good too.
    Now I wanna read the manga
    but I have a few I need to finish first
    like: Beastars & Sankarea etc.
    -I am now looking for scholarships online
    wish me luck.
    -My bday was on June 19th I'm
    now another year wiser lol.
    When is ya bday?
    -Hear about NetFlix showcasing anime series?
    A ton of fans hate it & feel like
    they're only doing it for money.

    Gd evening Somnus!
    -It has indeed been a while.
    I am now at Uni & the transition has been great.
    I like my large campus a lot, there's a ton of
    walking correction hiking on a daily basis lol.
    I've passed all of my classes this semester
    & now will be awaiting Autumn semester.
    All of my classes have been & will continue
    to be online only for the rest of the year.
    -Turns out I didn't get that school assistant job due to
    them wanting someone with work experience already
    & who can sign fluently with students ugh.
    So now I'm gonna apply to a deaf:
    Restaurant, then café, & then a bakery.
    I figure one of them will say yes
    since this corona virus has made ton
    of people jobless & hopefully after its
    more contained jobs will reopen.
    By then places will be desperate for employees lol.
    These places will def help me in my signing growth.
    I also plan on volunteering at a deaf chapel on
    Sundays once we've been able to re-group.
    -Glad ya parents amicably divorced.
    -I still can't believe your sister is working.
    -I just bought some vegan cook books &
    am gonna start cooking healthier meals.
    -How did your medical classes go?
    -I've been reading manga too.
    Read the series: Gleipnir?
    Its now an anime blah.
    I've also been reading:
    BeastStars & I luv it.
    Its like the adult version of Zootopia
    with teens navigating life lol.
    The only series I watch these
    days are very short ones.
    Nothing long & drawn out
    bcuz I don't have time for it.
    -Ready for Summer?

    Good Evening Somnus!
    -I am re-typing this due to
    my stupid tablet erasing my
    first reply to you ugh.
    -Nope don't feel like a forever student
    bcuz while I was at the Jr college
    after returning from my 4 year break
    I met students who were just now transferring
    at the age of: 35, 44, 60+up.
    So now I don't feel horrible about finishing
    much later than I had originally intended.
    Only 3 more years left & then its over.
    -Yes as of right now
    I am awaiting an interview
    which is gonna happen
    in January of 2020
    w/a principal of a deaf high school
    & if I pass it then I'll go back
    to the school & observe classes
    with different subjects & grade levels.
    I then will decide whether I will be a good fit
    for their part time job next month
    after I speak w/the diff teachers
    & ask how they feel about working
    w/someone of my skill level.
    If this job doesn't work out then
    I'm going to look at another school district
    & apply for the same position
    at another school elsewhere.
    If that fails then I'll be contacting
    an Deaf adult living facility
    to see if they would be interested
    in hiring me as a part time employee.
    Lastly I have already reached out to
    a Deaf owned & operated bakery to
    see if they would be willing to hire me part time
    for next year; esp since its mainly for Deaf YA.
    I have even asked them for other
    recommendations just in case they say no.
    YA = (Young Adults)
    I like having backup plans
    instead of being
    stuck in a rut & jobless.
    Plus all these jobs will
    help my signing improve.
    -I def wanna see IT 2 the sequel.
    -Seen any new One Piece movies?
    -My turkey day was nice & I ate good food.
    -Sorry for your parents divorcing.
    Why doesn't ya mom wanna divorce ya dad?
    U don't need to share family secrets w/me lol.
    -How is ya sister still working
    at job she's not good at?
    -Ready for Xmas?

    Gd evening Somnus!
    -Nope won't start classes until
    next Spring semester.
    Sooooo I will be taking my prerequisites
    for the program I'm auditioning for Fall 2020.
    I have approximately 9 & a half
    months to prep for the entrance exam.
    I am very nervous bcuz I know the
    competition is gonna be fierce.
    They (as in staff) want U to be
    fluent in ASL before applying
    or at the very least semi-fluent,
    I on the other hand am
    neither of those as of right now.
    I believe within the next 3 yrs
    I will be way more fluent compared
    to my skills rn but I am getting
    better lil by lil each day.
    Don't get my wrong I have indeed
    come a long way fm where I was
    10 yrs ago but I could be a lot better
    if I had more exposure to Deaf ppl.
    The only good thing abt this field
    is I don't need a B.A. degree in
    interpreting itself in order to
    become a ASL interpreter.
    U can have a degree in anything
    legit that they feel is usable
    to the community U will be serving
    & preferably from a 4 year campus.
    -In regards to volunteering I may
    not be going back to the company
    I had been going to which
    I began this late Summer,
    unless they call me
    back earlier than expected
    for the late Spring & full Summer of 2020.
    Reason being is they have an influx
    of volunteers coming in & may not
    have anymore room for me.
    I'm not butt hurt only bcuz I knew
    other ppl volunteered there regularly
    before I began my stint 2X a week.
    If it doesn't work out then I have 3
    back up plans put in place.
    I will be contacting 2 Adult Living Facilities
    to see whether I can volunteer in
    the Deaf dept w/the deaf employees & patients.
    That will give me a ton of experience
    being around Deaf individuals regularly
    & the train rides will hopefully not
    be as long to either location.
    If neither of those facilities allow
    me to gain volunteer experience
    then I will contact a school district & see
    if I can be placed in a middle school
    setting w/deaf students as a paraprofessional.
    This will give me tons of work with deaf/teens
    probably 3-4X a week which will be awesome.
    my last stop will be traveling further out hopefully
    by car to a company that has all deaf staff 24/7.
    I would be volunteering 3X a week; I'd apply
    for the front desk in the main office,
    & at deaf community gatherings.
    It would be an awesome experience but I'm not attempting
    that until I get a car & can drive back & fourth in 2020.
    It is too damn difficult to go by trains right now.
    As I live too far from the location & esp going by myself.
    Yes driving is the only sensible route to take
    when it comes to that company.
    -Awww don't beat yaself up over Lily
    U didn't know she was gonna go that day.
    Losing someone so close is very hard
    & painful, but with support of loved ones
    & grievance therapy ppl eventually heal.
    Try to focus on the good times U2 had together.
    At least U were by her side when she transitioned.
    -Glad ya hubby is taking classes & working part time.
    -Oooooh IT2 was very good? now I really wanna see it lol.
    I've been watching non-block buster flicks lately
    but that are still creepy & good.
    I'll post a trailer for 1 film below I wanna see.
    -How is ya sister & parents doing?
    -Awww lol ur hair sounds tolerable.
    Try doing mini Dutch braids in the back.
    Why haven't U ever dyed ya hair?
    -Ready for Thanksgiving?

    Gd Aftn Somnus!
    -My break has been interesting lol.
    My tutoring plans changed due to me never
    hearing from the head of the campus
    in order to set up a schedule w/a specific student.
    I began volunteering in another city an hour away
    from my home in late July with a nonprofit
    organization that helps aid unstable Deaf people.
    The organization helps them
    w/food, clothes, housing etc.
    If everything goes according to plan then
    I will be volunteering there all the way into
    next Autumn & hopefully pass that as well.
    Its giving me a ton of experience enteracting
    with deaf people & signing w/them for several hours.
    I go at least 2X a week for
    3 & half hours to 4 hrs maximum.
    I like it a lot its just traveling by train is gruesomely long.
    It takes me approximately 2 hours on the train ride ugh.
    I hope to get a car next year bcuz it will make a world
    of difference on so many things esp volunteering.
    So after I begin school next Spring I still
    want to volunteer w/that organization
    bcuz they've welcomed me with open arms
    & are willing to work with me.
    Also I'll soon be volunteering every Friday evening in
    another city attending a chapel service for the Deaf.
    That will def help me socially in a more warm setting
    so I've been told, lol let's hope that actually is the case.
    I was referred to the chapel by an long time interpreter
    who told me that deaf church members are
    more forgiving w/ppl making
    signing mistakes & welcoming
    to aspiring interpreters who want to improve their signing.
    I am still planning to attended small chat gatherings
    in the deaf community on the weekends Fri-Sun.
    Its just a matter of having enough money ahead of time.
    -OMG Lily is gone, nooooooooooo!
    I almost cried as I read your sad update on her,
    did U at least stay in the room when she
    transitioned into doggy heaven?
    I recently read an article w/a vet describing how
    dogs search for their owners while they are on
    the operating table scared not knowing what's happening
    nor why. Esp since we (the humans) are their whole world.
    Owners are constantly leaving their furbabies alone
    not caring enough to stay by
    their side during their time of need.
    I hope Lily's last day on earth was a pleasant one w/U.
    -Congrats on only 4 more quarters to go now.
    Any upcoming exams?
    -Has ya hubby had any progress w/his
    journey to higher-ed since U posted?
    -Lol is ya hair in a pixie shape or Bob?
    Are you gonna dye it another color?
    -I did see ACH (Annabelle Comes Home)
    it was good & I liked the Ed & Lorraine's
    daughter Judy throughout the film.
    She was very mature & creepy lol.
    Now I wanna see: CRAWL & IT 2.
    Did IT 2 live up to its hype?
    No spoilers pls hahahahaha.
    -Aww thanks for the congrats on my classes,
    they were a ton of work & going to tutoring
    & office hours helped me a ton whew.
    I'm glad I ended my semester in good spirits.
    -Yeah the Summer workshop fee was a nightmarish
    experience that I hope never to repeat next year.
    But as I said in the last post it may have been a
    blessing in disguise w/me having more time to prep.

    Gd Evening Somnus
    long time no talk.
    -I've been very busy,
    I passed all 3 of of my classes yay.
    I got a B in business math, an A in speech +
    high C 2 pts fm a B lol in astronomy lab.
    I should be getting a certificate for
    achievement from the campus
    but no AA degree as I originally planned due to it
    no longer holding any merit in my future field.
    Now they demand for interps to have a B.A. degree + M.A. degree
    nothing below will be accepted including AA degree.
    I finally finished my last semester at the jr. college.
    As you know the JRC (junior college) messed up my transcripts
    but finally the CSU saw the correct
    class numbers changes for the same classes & accepted
    them into their requirements for me.
    Ugh they had taken 4ever to give me the
    411 and by the time they did it was during
    prep week for final exams *rolls eyes*
    when I got it I tried to login early but their
    site wouldn't accept my username + pswd.
    I called them (CSU help desk) but no one answered my calls.
    So I had to wait 2 days before I called again.
    Also I misread the deadline + missed it by 3 days after the fact.
    Now I'll be applying this coming August
    for next Spring in 2020, reason being is due
    to my admission being renig bcuz I didn't
    pay for a Summer workshop fee ugh.
    Only bcuz I couldn't login in the first place, it was a mess.
    -The only pros is I'll have now is 1 year to prep for my auditions
    which will be exactly next Fall instead of 3 measly months.
    This will be a good time for me to volunteer
    and meet ppl in various chatty gigs
    to perfect my craft before the big entrance exams.
    I actually plan on tutoring Deaf students
    w/English homework in ASL this coming fall.
    That will give me tons of exposure that I so desperately need in the community
    + me volunteering on the weekends at events, along w/me goin to
    multiple small social gatherings is gonna give me all the practice I need.
    I plan on auditioning for at least 3 UNI campuses possibly 4 who knows.
    Hoping I'll have enough schollys/grants to do out of state.
    3 will def be out of state, I like to keep my options open.
    Can't be putting all my eggs in one basket.
    I will start lookin for scholarships next month for sure.
    -I am also gonna try to move closer to
    the campus that accepted me by the end of this year.
    -I am also waiting to get a new android lol.
    -Glad Lily is hangin in there while ill.
    Can she still walk?
    -Why did you cut ya hair off?
    I'm getting twists for the humid Summer.
    I have too much thick hair to be
    styling during these humid days.
    -Glad you passed your physics classes in ya last quarter.
    only 5 to go as in 5 semesters?
    -Are you getting paid well for this Summer gig in the hospital?
    -gonna call pest control on those possums?
    I think U should bcuz of them havin rabies etc.
    -I wanna see the new Annabelle Comes Home Movie
    + the thriller CRAWL I will link em below,

    GM Somnus!
    -I've been exceptionally busy as well.
    I've narrowed it down out of 4 campuses.
    There is a nice campus in Colorado
    that I would've loved attending but its
    too expensive for me to move out of state
    & live there fulltime.
    Plus in order to go I would need
    to be accepted into their prestigious B.A. program.
    Problem is I don't feel like I'm ready to audition for it.
    I still need time for more growth & 3 months isn't
    enough time, whereas the other 2 campuses
    here in my neck of the woods will
    each give me 11 months
    to work on my craft
    before auditioning for
    their B.A. programs next Fall.
    I'd prefer to tell you their names in a PM.
    So now I've got 2 options left, one way out in
    another county which is over 2 hrs away by car
    which means I'd need to move on campus
    & the other which is 30+ mins by car
    I'd still need to move but it's closer
    & more convenient.
    -Tomorrow I have a meeting
    w/a campus counselor fm a campus I've chosen
    bcuz I was accepted & then swiftly rejected all
    due to the fact that my current school
    messed up my transcript grades & didn't
    show how I completed & passed a 3 classes
