New Youtube Channel | Essceejulies

Oh wow a blog post that isn't a TED Talk. Could this mean this blog will start being a blog again? One way I'm attempting to get back into the groove is by incorporating my interest in making videos.

#TEDTalkTuesday - Sam Bems' Philosophy for a Happy Life

Its been a few Tuesdays since  a TED Talk post and today’s featured presentation is a great one to start with. I know that we’re almost a third of the way through 2014 but is it too late to say “Happy New Year!”?

Two-Year Stargardt's Anniversary and I'm Back

Well hello, its been a while since I blogged. I took a break but I'm back. Today happens to be a special day for me, its been two years since I was diagnosed with Stargardt's. It really doesn't feel like its been two years. In the video below I talk a little more about it.

My Vision

I just wanted to end 2013 talking about a topic that should of been one of my first vlog post and that's my visual impairment. If you are a regular reader of my blog this isn't news but I haven't discussed it much on my youtube channel. I've learned a lot over the past 20 months since being diagnosed with Stargardt's Disease.

#TEDTalkTuesday Chris Downey: Design with the blind in mind

Haven't done a TED Talk Tuesday in a while but I'm back with a good one. Today (December 3rd) is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This year's theme is "Break Barriers, Open Doors: for an inclusive society and development for all”. I found this great talk that I feel embodies this year's theme perfectly.

Just In Time For the Holidays: Braille Greeting Cards

The above picture is an assortment of Braille Tactile Holiday Greeting cards.

So the other day one of my Stargardt's twitter friends Yvonne Felix tweeted me the above picture of greeting cards. These are not just any greeting cards they are Braille tactile cards. Yvonne was tired of getting cards that she couldn't see so since she's an artist she decided to make her own. This is such a great idea. The proceeds from the cards will go to support the non-profit Resight Inclusive Arts.

The cards are $3.00 or $25.00 for 40 cards you can purchase the cards here.

Saying Hi and Stargardts Links

I'm saying hello via the below video I made but I just realized that some countries don't allow video playback. Basically what I'm saying is I know that on this blog I can be inconsistent when I post and I've drifted away from telling my story dealing with vision loss. Below the video I provided links to websites, blogs, a video playlist and more to help you connect with others who have Stargardt's. If you know of some information I missed feel free to contact me. If you are able to watch my video I made it closed captioned so you can understand me better.
