The beauty of Deaf Culture is that, sometimes, networking is amazing. Thanks to my college Deaf best friend, Jimmy Cardosi, may he rest in peace, his Deaf parents kindly offered me to rent a room in their basement.
I got my new Ohio driver's license & officially feel "Ohian" along with new license plates. Now I got to learn my way around in this city! Will have to buy a new GPS as the one I had froze in Colorado last year (-10 degrees - Tip: Keep your GPS device in a warm house if you know temperatures will drop!)
Curious of how much activities I can volunteer as I'm now very near OSD - Ohio School for the Deaf. Looking forward to meeting cute Deaf kids. I've already introduced myself to DSC - Deaf Service Center - an ASL interpreting agency for this city.
Reminder: My online and in person office is open from Tuesday to Friday - 10am to 5pm EASTERN Time Standard.

I look forward to mentoring or tutoring new & some returning ASL students this year. For an appointment,
Lastly, there's a cool new webcam program that I enjoy using - no longer need to put up with unreliable Skype and FaceTime is limited to Apple (Mac) users --- this online program is for any computers with a wifi or direct ethernet connection: APPEAR.IN - you simply type in the search engine window: appear.in and then send a link to a friend its url address and you two instantly connect. I have a specific room that I always use and send that url address to my current students. Check it out and practice beforehand to get a feel for it. Several ASL students I've worked with likes it.
I'll be adding new information throughout the rest of the year as I've been jotting down some good notes that I want to share but still unpacking and have to find them first.
Have a wonderful rest of the summer and stay cool in this hot/humid weather.
