I had a really bad dream last night. It was about me being on an abandoned island without any communication with the outside world. I was all alone on the island without even turtles to keep me company. I slowly went crazy and started hearing voices in my head. At first I ignored the voices but after a while I couldn't ignore them because they wouldn't go away. All the voices were doing was calling my name and telling me to get home. It was awful. A few weeks past and then I started talking back to the voices. My dream ended where I was totally engolfed with the voices of my insanity and I couldn't hear anything in the outside world. I told my boss what happened in the dream and he told me that it was my subconsious trying to tell my brain kthat it is stretching the limits of not communicating all day. It was a very interesting conversation that we had.
Today both my bosses were at work so I didn't go insane. I actually got to talk with people besides the individuals on the phone. My boss took me out to eat at an italian place. I had a veggi pizza. It was really good. Then I got to play on the zip line which is a cable about six feet in the air that you use a bar and hold onto it with your hands and go down to the bottom of the line about 20 feet away. It was really fun. Then I got to swing on the monkey bars before getting into the car to go home. I am so glad my boss let me play before we had to get busy again.
After having lunch me and my boss went to QFC (Quality Food Center) which is like an Albersons. I had never been into QFC and so my boss took me on a little tour. While there we got some samples of chocolate-oatmeal-raisin cookies. Man were they good.
Yesterday at the music studio I had the chance to be an engineer. I got to control the computer and the playback The playback is when you talk to the artists that are in the other room recording. The computer records the sound and lets you change the echo of the sound. There is a type of program that is like the engineering program but it is called SONIC. It uses a screen reader so that the blind can be music engineers. That is how I got to work with the computer. Without this program it would be impossible for the blind to do this job since you need to be sighted to use the other program.
