Here's why I do not play soccer (football):
Went for a quick walk after work. It's our conference week at work so I'll be working from 8am to at least 9pm each day, plus Saturday and Sunday. A woman and kid were kicking a soccer ball on the sidewalk. The woman kicks it and it passes the kid and comes at me. I kick it back to the kid. Miss him completely. I hit the bumper of one car and then bounces off and hits the bumper of another car. Ooops.
When people with disabilities speak up and ask questions, people get uncomfortable and show us the door. Especially when we're asking questions like "why did you build this thing to help people with disabilities without involving anyone with a disability?"
Empathy is great and all, but it requires understanding. And you can't get to understanding without engaging people as peers and whole individuals.
Make a banana that tastes like chocolate and maybe I'll consider it.
Continuing my octopus obsession, I just purchased this rug.
Dang, only 30 minutes left.
Met with my therapist this week. I mentioned I've been feeling depressed at our last session. He's taking it seriously but didn't get too concerned until I told him that until recently I hadn't been reading. He knows I usually read about 100 books a year so somehow this tipped him off to my depression level.
