My first week at university has been great! Even though it's only Wednesday and still not yet completed my first week. It's just soooooooo different. It's big and yeah, there is loads and loads of people! I can't belive we'd our first homework already!
When I first went into my class and met the rest of my course mates. Everyone seems nice but I was a bit uncomfortable while i were in the lesson, because alot of my classmates were staring at it as if they don't know what it is or they haven't seen it before. I do like to wear my hair up in sports and yep, I wore the implant where everyone could see it.
So, after two days in university. Yesterday, we had a study skill session and our homework was to make a small presentation about any topic we like! I ended up making a small presentation about my Cochlear implant and explain to the rest of my class what it was and why I got it! Today I did the presentation out to the class and it went well. It did make me feel alot better as they all now know what it is and there were less staring. So, that one peice off my mind.
Anyway, Since i've passed my test. I have now got a car (Vaxuhall Corsa) and I've learnt a few sounds while I were driving round to places:
* Horn - I pressed it on purposes to hear it. :-P
* The window wipers.
* The engine running.
* Sirens (ambulance)
* The Radio but didn't understand a word , lol but loved my music on :D
So, it's good to listen to more NEW things
Another good news, last week I went to Pride Park for a presentation for the 2008 East Midlands Sports Award. At the sports award I won 'Sportwomen of the year award ' for my commitment, motivation and performance during my football talent. which was great :-D
So, that's it for me now. I'm off to my 3rd speech therapy session tomorrow which i'll be posting a new update on that and on the 2nd Oct I'm due for my 6months mapping. :-D
