We made it to Digby okay. I ended up getting VTO at work and was able to leave around 10:30 am. We were on the road by 11:30 am. It’s a good thing too, because a few hours ago it started to rain and has turned to freezing rain. Everything outside is covered in a layer of ice.
I found out at work today that they have purchased Rosetta Stone, so I am able to “borrow” it for any language that Rosetta Stone has. So I may just use it to brush up on my French and German so that I can get an international position at work. They are always hiring on my project.
In the meantime I am going to see about saving up about $500 for the first of the two ASL courses that are offered through Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC). While taking that I can save up about the same for the next one. Hopefully in a year I should have enough to move on to the next stage and apply for the Deaf Studies program at NSCC.
I talked a bit about it with Mom before supper and she agreed it was a good idea and the ASL 1 & 2 courses will give me something to do over the next year or so while working. It’s 2 nights a week for 3 hours each night so it should not affect me being able to work at all. I would just have to take day shifts on the days I would have class.
I am excited to put my plan into action.
