Yep, it's not easy, but I think you can get it done.  Why?  Because you want

This is very true since she doesn't have messages filtered into separate
folders it would very much so get annoying to her and you are right things
would be a lot different such as I would be dead already *LOL*. She will be
finishing up her paralegal degree the same time I will be finishing up my
B.A. in Psychology. This will be a busy time for both of us, I am going to
have to get on the ball figuring out about the LSAT, fill-out my application
for law school, and make the grades that would enable me to go to law

Wouldn't that be a sacrifice on her part then, since she voluntarily removed
herself?  She did a lot to keep you alive *lol*.  I think things would be
different if she were still here with us.  She is missed whether she knows
it or not.  But factoring her schedule it's also understandable.  She would
get swamped when the list is in high traffic mode, then she would really be
annoyed at you at that point.

Perhaps her removal from the list is what kept me alive *LOL*.

I think Amanda probably often wants to ring Josh's neck, maybe it's a daily
decision making process, perhaps even hourly, but a class in family stress
will likely increase the frequency that the neck ringing decision making
process occurs.  Now I'd better go reread that and see if I actually got the
point across without setting myself in trap *lol*


Looks okay.  I forgot, perhaps it's a moment by moment thing too.  We can
only guess since Amanda isn't in our list, but that avoidance, thus silence
speaks for itself.  Perhaps when she was in our group she felt like ringing
other necks too, but that was a while back when she was with us.

Didn't Amanda sometimes want to ring Josh's neck anyway?  Why should today
be any different?  All kidding aside, just think about the way you will be
able to advocate for your clients as a lawyer---when you are ready, I have a
doozy for you regarding 2 airlines who left my sister stranded in their
airports with NO assistance.  Whereas, if she would've needed wheelchair
assistance she would've been treated much differently...apparently just a
service dog isn't enough anymore.  The ADA wasn't at all interested in
pursuing this matter, the airline denied the event.  This has been very,
very, very, very maddening to me, obviously.


Go Josh!!

Shouldn't a family stress class have some stress for you and your family
then?  Sounds like it's going to live up to it's billing.  


You will do okay.  Amanda might want to ring your neck before the semester
is over, but you will get it done *lol*.

I had a little issue when I first arrived at the school. It was kind of
weird because the semester before last the area that they drove me to was
the big deal and they said they couldn't take me thorugh there, well some of
the drivers anyways. This time they took me to the place that was the issue
when all they had to do was drop me off at the entrance there at the street.
They insisted that they could not do that because there was construction
going on. I told them I was aware of the construction and if they will walk
me back to the road I will show them where I need to go. They refused saying
that the construction blocks the road. Finally, I get my disability person
on the phone there at the school and he says he will come over there which
he is in an office several blocks away. After I hung the phone she said well
lets walk donw where I had originally said. I told her exactly where I
needed to go and she complimented me telling me that I drew a pefect visual
and brought us right up to the doors I needed to go to. I am thinking to
myself why didn't you just listen the first time when I told you instead of
both my driver and one of the supervisors acting like I was an idiot. So, I
try to call my disability person back and he had already started making the
trek over so he had to walk all the way over there to just find that I was
where I needed to be. Hopefully that does not continue to be a problem.

    I made it to class without any issues once I was inside the building.
The class although very interactive with groups which I am not a big fan of
was and seems like it will be an interesting class.

   Then I catch the bus over to the disability office only to find out that
they did not let me off at the right doors. So, I am trying to find an
office and I did so I asked them how to get hwre I needed to go. So, I get
up to the office where I need to be and talk to the person I need to talk to
only to find out that they do not have what I need. So, I make the phone
call and take the bus back over to the building where I need to be.

    I then head inside to go to my second class. This class is going to be a
tough one even though it is a junior level class. The work load sounded like
it is going to be graduate level. This is my family stress class. The
graduate student though seems like he is going to be willing to work with me
and that makes all the difference in the world when you have a teacher
willing to work with you and get feedback.

   I go to head out for the day and I am waiting at the door for my bus.
While waiting a friend of mine, also blind, walks in and I helped her find
the elevator. I think I threw her off by standing on the wall she needed in
order to get to the elevator. So, I did my good deed for the day. A lady was
walking from the parking to trying to get to the cross over bridge, this is
where I get to do my second good deed for the day *LOL*, she asked me how to
get to it. Just so happens I remember that location very well from the days
I worked on campus and was able to give her directions right to whre she
needed to go.

    I have homework in both the classes I had this morning. We will see how
my 3 hour class goes this evening.
