Video - Being Aware of Other Senses | Essceejulies

Thanks to advances in technology over recent decades and the growth of social media we are sharing more information than ever. Most of this information is visually based. This often creates circumstances where we're increasingly not in "touch" with our other senses.

Video - Reasons To Smile | Essceejulies

In last week's video I talked about why I had reasons to smile over the past few weeks. This includes family milestones, visiting my eye doctor and finally meeting with my state's commission for the blind to help me to have

No video this week & other things.

I didn't post a video this week on my youtube channel. Its been a busy week with birthdays, graduations and meetings and I didn't feel it necessary to make a 30 second video just to say that. 

One of the meetings I had this week was one it seems like I've been waiting a year to have. If you follow me on twitter (@Essceejulies) I posted the below vague tweet:
Things are moving forward to helping me become more independent. I'll talk more about it in the following week's and months but I'm really excited!

Oh and also I wanted to remind you that if you're really into Google+ I created two Stargardt's groups over there. One is a public awareness group and the other is a private support group. I encourage you to join either group as a moderator or contributor.

Its a Tuesday so it must be time for another TED Talk. Now, don't be alarmed (or excited) by the word 'porn" in the title of this post. This post is definitely not about sex.

Rolling out My New Channel

The roll out of my new youtube channel Essceejulies has been a little rough. A couple of my videos were having audio problems so I had to delete them and then repost them. I can tell you it is as frustrating as it sounds. I also have to admit that I am not the best self-promoter so things have been a bit slow. But

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.
