Welcome to my blog
I originally started this during my time at university as part of my dissertation creative project, I have been updating it since, and it is something that I hope to cultivate into a resource for sighted and visually impaired people alike. The aims of these posts are for me to rant, but more importantly, an attempt to bridge across the common misunderstandings and misconceptions between sighted and blind folks. I myself happen to be blind, but you won’t get many inspirational sentiments here as I am not here to inspire, I am here to hopefully educate and bridge the misconception the sighted have about the visually impaired; so next time when you *bump* into a blind person it won’t be too awkward.
So expect a combination of sarcasm, funny anecdotes, and maybe some controversial points of view. My hope is that you’ll get something out of it!
