The Most Recent Films I’ve Watched and Loved!

I’m always one to talk about all the books I’ve read and things I’ve crocheted over the months but I rarely talk about film and tv, which is silly as I have a whole category on this blog dedicated to film and tv.

I think as I rarely bother with the huge programmes or take a trip to the cinema for reasons I’ve explained before, it’s not such a huge deal for me. However, I want to break up the pattern a little bit as everything up to now is very book-orientated and it’s nice to have a change.

My Favourite Things About Autumn

Schools are back after a long summer holiday, the weather is turning colder, and it is only four months until the end of the year.

I don’t care about dates, but this means Autumn is upon us and all I can say is, thank the Lord because Summer is horrible for me. The heat of this past summer was unbearable, allergies made me feel lousy, and apart from YALC, I didn’t really have the opportunity for a decent break.

Autumn, on the other hand, is my favourite season and I’m definitely looking forward to it this year.

August Favourites

For the first time in what feels like forever, I actually want to blog again. YAY!

I hope it lasts.

Anyway, I wanted to write up a non-bookish favourites post this month because there are a few different things I’ve come across that I’ve truly loved and become addicted to. I would add it to my end-of-month book posts but I have a feeling it will be rather long and I didn’t want to add to that.

So, what are some of my August favourites?

My Experience With DLP’s Green Card

I know I’m posting this super late but it’s taken me a while to get the right words together to write this in full.

Anyone who has been on Twitter since the Marvel (or not so Marvel) Soirée at Disneyland Paris has probably seen the outcry relating to DLP’s treatment of disabled guests and the usage of the green cards which usually provide disabled guests with certain entitlements, mainly the skipping of queues, and being given return times for character meet and greets. From what I read on Disabled in Disney about this particular soirée, those cards were not honoured for the meet and greets, and it resulted in someone having an epileptic seizure whilst waiting to meet a character because she was forced to wait in a long queue, enhanced by triggering flashing lights.

Books With d/Deaf Representation – Adult Edition

Hello!

Welcome back to the weekly posting of anything to do with d/Deaf Awareness!

I’m on a bit of a book kick with this at the moment as this will be part two of the books with d/Deaf representation post that I published a couple of days ago. That edition was mainly centred on YA and I’ll leave the link here if you missed it. As you can see from the title, this edition is more focused on adult fiction and memoirs and it’s not so much d/Deaf representation but deafness as a subject and way of life – something I believe it is important to distinguish.

Books With d/Deaf Representation – YA Edition

Hello!

I’m changing my blogging schedule this week and deciding to post every day because this week (14th-20th May) happens to be Deaf Awareness Week in the UK. It has coincided with quite a few other awareness weeks such as Mental Health and Epilepsy but it is Deaf Awareness Week I want to focus on. Saying that, there might be a collaboration at some point later on in the week.

Breaking Down The d/Deaf Misconceptions

Hello!

The time has come for another d/Deaf related blog post and this one pertains to all the misconceptions and stereotypes. I’ll admit this is one post I should have done right at the beginning but other things got in the way and I completely forgot about it. It’s lucky I needed to remind what I wrote in my introductory post because this topic was left down in the comments. It also fits in to my current WIP (writing project in progress) which I have been doing a lot of work on so I now have no excuse to forget or avoid the topic.

Actually, I’m glad to be getting this down because it is probably one of the most important posts I will ever write on d/Deaf awareness.
