    >Basically just asking for comments

    >I’m currently updating my CV and I’m a bit stuck with the key skills and achievements sections.  So I figured why not ask for suggestions? Please leave a comment if you are so inclined with one skill you think I have that employers should know about and also one achievement if your feeling that helpful.  Chances are I’ll put something completely different but I am unsure what to put and would be interested to see what you suggest.  And to make this easier, I’ve sorted out the comment leaving problem several people mentioned! Also I am amassing something of a collection of bracelets and earrings that I’ve made and which…

    >Crafty Crip

    >It occurred to me the other day that I haven’t shared any photos of my crafty doings lately. And then today I made a bracelet that I absolutely love so I thought I would make that my update today! Scrapbook of when I went to the sealife centre in birmingham back in june. The waves are drawn on by hand with a blue felt tip and the dolphins are cut outs from when I did my previous sealife layout a while back (click on the “crafts” category and the photo should be in the entry below this). Various picture of different people dancing together at my sisters birthday party. The…

    >A Leap Of Faith

    > Today I feel strong. And I got a lot done. A week ago (following my nightmare tuesday) I wouldn’t have even considered doing some of the stuff I did because I was extremely down and believed that it was beyond me. Or rather, what it could potentially lead to is/was beyond me. It might turn out that it is, I don’t know. But I don’t think it is. And I refuse to allow one day like that and one conversation with one person who doesn’t know me well and truly lacks some/enough awareness of CP to be the thing that made that decision. Today I took what I can…

    >Random Bullet Points of Life

    > On 6th December I will be doing a presentation on my sailing trip to around 70 people at Reading University. I have decided to never eat fish again. Ever. There seems to be a lot of disability related crap in my life at the moment – from more than one place. I am looking for a new job. I don’t do lap or seatbelts in a wheelchair. Ever. And one can’t be fitted to my K because of the design. Someone in all seriousness told me I could use a luggage strap as a substitute seatbelt. I told her no and I didn’t care that allegedly the rules of…

    >Bye Bye Bye

    >This song just came on my iTunes and I found it so apt that I turned the volume right up to maximum and left it blaring out on repeat while I finished getting ready for swimming. And now I am ready but John isn’t here yet so I figured I would share it’s appropriateness with you!

    >Give me strength

    > If anyone has any spare postive vibes, good thoughts, prayers or even plain ol’ strength available for me to borrow for a few days that would be much appreciated! I need something to help me get through tomorrow and as far as the weekend – I promise to return anything lent at that point and I’ll do my best not to return it in a somewhat still functional order. All I will say right now is this really, really, sucks. But it isn’t quite as bad as some people have said my previous entry made them think. And now I will go to bed and back to repeating my…

    >Did you ever have a conversation that was so, so hard to have? One you weren’t expecting, that blindsided you and hurt and made you cry, so, so hard. And feel like once you started you were never gonna stop. One that you couldn’t believe what you were being told but then despite the fact that hearing it really hurt it made sense. Were glad they told you even though it hurt because now you can do soemthing about it and were clueless no more. And you stopped crying only to start again a few minutes later and then again after that. You had someone sat with you telling you…

    >Be The Change You Want To See In The World

    >I’m making a few changes in my life…. inspired I think by my experiences on my JST trip. So some of you might find I’m not talking with you on MSN or commenting on your blogs as often. Actually I did delete a couple of people from my messenger lists as well. As you’ve probably noticed I’m also not updating here as often. Sometimes you’ve got to make a positive change in your life and for me this is. I’m not going to apologise for these changes they are what I need to be where I want and need to be in my life right now. It’s like it says…
