I thought you guys might like this video. This is the video version of a podcast that I have already listen to. Adam Savage (from Mythbusters) talks about his hearing loss and does mention things about what those us of who have are normal hearing can do for those who are hard of hearing.

I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.

State Championships wrap up day one.

I had a really rough day today. I think I learnt a lot about racing strategy. I went into the heats for my single expecting a cruisy race and ended up coming third. Then, the final I changed a few things up, beat the two girls that beat me in the heats, pulled in line with first place after a max effort 500m, only to crab on my second last stroke to come second by 0.33 of a second. That was really disappointing for me, after winning with clear water all season, and even previously beating the girl that won. I guess I was just too confident, and that was a massive mistake for me . It has cost me a state title and a medal (no silvers or bronzes in WA,) and culminated into crying onto my boyfriends shoulder from complete exhaustion, disappointment and frustration.

Then, the eight got smashed, as did the pair. Poor technique, paired with unusually hot and sunny conditions, no wind and sunburn meant today has been awful. I’m going to try forget about it, and get on with things tomorrow, hopefully win some races. I really hate losing, even if it’s a chance to learn.
