This is real, this is sound!

Hey all,

Hasn't it been a while since i have last posted? I did get lost, but here I am now - I just had a busy month - and a busy week!

Next thurs, I'll be going for my one year C.I review. Can you believe how quick this year has gone! It makes me feel old already!

Anyway, I thought i'll share this. Have you all ever heard of camp rock? well, its a film I watch a few weeks ago. I know its for teens but still I am a big kid and would watch anything that is good.

There Camp rock has a song called "this is real, this is me" and I really liked the song. So, one day I got that bored after spending a week off uni being ill . I decided to see if could change the song that is CI related.

Here it is: tell me what you think?

Living in a silent world
Didn’tunderstand
Do you know what is like
Not to hear a sound
I have this thing
right inside of me
I’m gonna let it show, it’s time

To let you know
To let you know...

This is real, this is sound
That is how I’m supposed to hear now
that the device, is how I hear
Now I’ve found, how I hear
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding what I wear
This is me

To dream about a life
with all the sound you got
Even though it seems,
like it's too far away
without that device
I don’t know what you hear
It’s the only way.....

This is real, this is sound
That is how I’m supposed to hear now
that the device, is how I hear
Now I’ve found, how I hear
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding what I wear
This is me

You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason how I’m hear
I need to wear it
I gotta wear it
You're the missing piece i need
to put sound inside of me
I need to wear it
I gotta wear it


This is real, this is sound
That is how I’m supposed to hear now
that the device, is how I hear
Now I’ve found, how I hear
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding what I wear
This is me

This is me
(You're the missing piece i need to put sound inside me)
This is me, Yeah
(You're the voice i hear inside my head, the reason how I hear)

Now I’ve found, how I hear
There’s no way to hold it in
No more hiding what I wear
This is me

anyway, let me know what you all think. After doing this. This makes me thing there should be a music video out there that should increase cochlear implant awareness, there are still lot of people out there that doesn't know what a cochlear implant is.

that is it for me, watch out for next weeks post with the BIG 1 year results!

That's a great song! I could almost hear it as a song in my head.

Thank you for the comments! I'm sitting her w/ my 12 year old daughter, and she wants to know how you know what the referee and/or coach are telling you without your CI? We've tried that and it is so difficult! She is in awe of that :)

We'll give the think headband a shot for training, and maybe try to see if it works during games.
Thanks!
