We Are Deaf: One and Many

Posted by chillygurlz on January 24, 2009

Hello everyone… I am proud to be Deaf and that is who I am… I have joined girl scouts with my other deaf girls in elementary school, I went with group of deaf kids to bowling or fishing after school. I joined Nebraska school for the deaf and did key club and jr NAD. I also joined Iowa school for the deaf and did sports, joined church with other deaf kids. As a child i met a deaf signing santa along with other deaf kids and we went to social events, it was fun. as a senior, i joined Grants pass High school, for my senior year, I did a senior project on “Deaf” to teach hearing people about deaf and how they live their daily life and I went to few schools, taught few 2nd grade classes about deaf and taught them some signs. it was alot of fun… also I volunteered at library, working with storytime, i also taught kids some signs every week. Today, i go to library to use internet on regular basis, i sometimes chat with my friends on cam on computer, so i use sign out in public to encourage ppl when they see me sign, they get curious and might want try signing… that my thought. So i have done alot for my deaf community too… I am proud to be Deaf… thanks for watching…

ASL song: From my Hands to your Hearts…

Posted by chillygurlz on October 22, 2008

Hello everyone… I have a special song to share with you… from my hands to your hearts, I care about you all. You all are special to me, I love you all, from my hands to your hearts. I believe we should support ASL. We should teach children and adults ASL… From my hands to your hearts, I support everyone no matter who, deaf, HOH, oralist, CI, anyone… I accept everyone… We all are on Earth for purpose, to live our life… work together as team and get along together… work out problems together. from my hands to your hearts, yes sometimes it hard to find reasons why we born? that question we always will ponder. well i figured it out, why we born? to support each other, work together, learn from each other. From my hands to your hearts, you all are special. Yes i am deaf and have noonan’s syndrome but it does not matter to me, cuz i have it for a reason. each person, way you are, that fine, don’t matter to me… From my hands to your Hearts, thanks for watching my show…

Remembering 9/11/2001 World Trade Center

Posted by chillygurlz on September 11, 2008

Hello all… u know i am proud to be an American. I am happy to be born in America. America is Beautiful… sure we have good or bad things happen but we deal with it and work it out. Remember 7 years ago, on September 11, 2001 The twin towers (World Trade Center) in New York City, got crashed by 2 hijacked planes and exploded, injured or killed alot of ppl in the building. that day was very devastating for most all people in America. That day we all “froze” and look up and prayed for those who got hurt, that the day everything changed. I felt soo bad for those people who died or got injured, I was sad that day too. I want to know what you all were doing on that day when WTC bombing happened? how did you all feel? What i was doing? I was getting ready for School, I was living in Oregon at the time, I got up and went to see news on TV, I saw what was going on with WTC, I was SHOCKED and Devastated by what happened, I still had to go to school anyway, when i went to school, everyone was talking about what happened and teachers had their TV on for us Students to see what going on. we all talked about it in school all day. I felt like, did it really happen? so tell me how you felt and what were u doing on that day? alright let have a moment of sliences and prayer for those who got injured or died in the WTC. it a day we take seriously, think about what happened. feel free to leave comments, say what on your mind. thanks for watching my vlog.

I was a “failure to thrive” baby, let me share my story…

Posted by chillygurlz on August 23, 2008

Hello all…  hurricane Fay been real cool to watch so far, but of course i hope everyone is safe and good too.  alright i want to share my story about my “failure to thrive” as a baby.  here the link about “failure to thrive” http://kidshealth.org/parent/growth/growth/failure_thrive.html  

I showed few pics of me as a baby at beginning and at the end of video.   I was born an “failure to thrive”  baby, i have problems breathing, heart problem, could not shallow baby milk, did not gain weight as much as i should, was delayed in my development for sitting up, crawling, walking, due to my problem with motor skill, web neck, problem breathing, problem with shallowing, but it was not bad enough that i needed any tubes but i had monitors to watch my heart and breathing.  it was just alot more work for my mom to feed me as i would not eat.    i did not sit up or crawl or walk until very late age, i started crawling at age 9 months, only on my back, i would not lay on my stomach.   i did not sit up till i was about 10 months old.   i walked at age 2 and half.  my weight was soo slow at gaining, i was only 20 pounds at age 1,  i was 7 pounds as newborn but did not gain weight very well.  I hated eating as a baby and i refused solid food until i was about 2, when i had tonsils out, i slowly accepted food.  i was pretty strong and fought to survive the hardship i had as baby.  at age 3 i finally was eating fine and my motor skills were picking up and i was doing much better.   i wonder if any of u had problem with failure to thrive as a baby or u had a baby who was a failure to thrive?   thanks for watching my vlog…

My point of view on DBC…

Posted by chillygurlz on August 8, 2008

(comes out of shell)  That exactly how i feel when i joined deafread and Deaf Video TV…   I started vlogging, watching your vlogs,  most of u all inspired me to open up more so i not “stuck in a shell”.   Thank u all soo much, I love ya all!!!     alright now, i want to express to u my point of view about DBC (DEAF BILINGUAL COALITION)…     about deaf babies right to ASL,  u know the webpage about DBC,  the videos don’t captions or subtitles,   well i would think they should add captions, so that way hearing parent who just had a deaf baby can come across this message…  http://www.seekgeo.com/?p=1141                like Seek Geo said on his vlog, captions on vlog like DBC will help send out messages to everyone…   but yes i support DBC, for deaf babies right to ASL…  i think the hearing parents with deaf babies should choose that path to allow the deaf babies learn to sign…  ok about ASL for me,   u know when i was a baby,  when i was age one, my mom found out i was deaf,   she has never met a deaf person or anything so she was like, “what am i gonna do”…  so she checked around, as always, she did make right decisions for me,  she had me learn to sign at age 1,  i went to early start preschool with other deaf kids at age 2…   My mom always made sure i have a part of deaf culture and be exposed to deaf community…   she always had me go visit and hang out with this one deaf family who “adopted me” so i would have deaf role model peers…  my mom did a wonderful job doing that for me, i am thankful for that from her…  my whole family is hearing.   part of my family don’t accept me as deaf, other part of family accepts me as deaf.  only my mom and both of my grandma knew sign, but today both my grandma forgotten how to sign.  my mom is still doing alright with signing but not fluent.   u know i been watching different vlogs,  stories about deaf ppl who been abused in oral school in past,  I felt sorry for the deaf kids in past who were abused in oral school.  I learned from that,  it made me realize, we deaf kids today,  are lucky  cuz now in most schools, we have a choice of either, speaking only, speak and sign or just sign only, and can take speech class if want, although schools will always encourage speech class for all kids anyway.   so i enjoy watching stories about history related to deaf issues…  those stories really made an impact on me.   alright thanks for watching my vlog and I love u all vloggers…  i enjoy all ur vlogs…   I have learned alot from all of u and my signing skills have improved alot too…  thanks…

Hazards of being deaf!!! “humor”

Posted by chillygurlz on July 14, 2008

This is just a humor video!!!

starts out, me talking to my dog…  then,  I want to show u pic of me with my “spiritual” twin brother who showed up in my picture. (yes it photo-shopped)…   I have a question for u all?  what are the hazards of being deaf?  just a humor question that all. 

driving down street, stop at red light, battery dies in car,  light turn green, i try to press go but it don’t work, but there a line of impatient cars behind me, so Lucky i am deaf.   when u start driving down street, 80 MPH, u just realized u did not close ur car door all the way, so it swing open, yikes lol.    sometimes when we eat, we would smack our food, not realized it but people stare at you cuz u were making noise while chewing lol it has happened to me often too.    when u go to Cafe or food place, u want to order ham and cheese sandwich, u did it by try to speak to the waitress, so when waitress come back, u get a hamburger instead, oh yikes lol.   when u go to doctors, u wait in waiting room full of ppl, there were some kids screaming very loud, ppl are staring at the kids while u never noticed the kid was screaming out of lungs.  at home, when we vacuum, we sometimes accidentally pull the plug then still vacuum for couple more mins before we realized, oops vacuum not even on lol.   when u go to bed at night, u wake up in morning realizing an nasty storm has pass by last night, never woke u up at all, cuz u can see branches feel off trees, it a mess outside and wet.  at home, at night, if there was a robber or a bad person sneaking outside of ur house, a dog barks like crazy trying to warn u but ur sleeping,  (that why we have special sound flashers today for us deafies and alarms)…   suppose ur walking down street, someone behind u, try to call for u to ask u something but u did not hear, so that person gives u a look like “u must be a snob” or something.    if u wanted ur hearing friend to make a call for u, that hearing friend could be changing words and saying different things then u wanted them to say on phone.    suppose ur stopped by cop, u try reach for ue wallet or ur notepad, cop gets leery about u cuz maybe ur getting something dangerous out.  at night, when ur sleeping with ur wife or husband, they snore very loud, but we deafies are lucky to sleep through that all night.   when we go to movie theater or whereever that uses sounds, we have to pay a full admission, is that really worth it?    suppose ur just relaxing on couch watching tv, u did not know anyone was in house, so someone comes into the house and come up from behind, tap u, u jump and get scared lol.   if ur only deaf person in a circle of hearing ppl, it feels like ur on a deserted island…  suppose u were in house all day, never looked out till later on, u looked out and realized it has been raining cats and dogs all day lol…   last, suppose u saw a cute dog, u go to pet it, it growls at u, but u don’t hear it, yikes…   this is just humor,  thanks for watching my vlog…
