I had a wonderful teacher of the Blind/vision teacher if you want to be politically incorrect (vision teacher is an incorrect descriptor because they don't teach me how to see). Anyway, she and I used various tricks to remember code for music and math. At one time, I knew the entire Nemeth (math code). The one I started thinking about yesterday was what we used for rests.
Braille has what are called contractions (ways of shortening what you write to save space and make reading more efficient). I used the contractions in this case to help me remember the rests. Keep in mind, this was in third grade:
More (m) WHOLE milk
HALF of US (u) are here
I don't have VERY (v) many QUARTERS
and IT's (x) an EIGHTH NOTE
Now that that trip down memory lane is over, I'll talk about the rest of my day. I went to Brewberry's this morning and had coffee and muffins (yes, plural intended). That's where I wrote the book review too. On the way there, my hair froze (nature's way of hair spray?).
I spent the rest of the day messing around and doing reading for school. Mom and Dad took me to
and then to a grocery store for stuff I needed. Now, I'm sitting here, happy I could finally put on Lidoderm. I'd like to go to Brewberry's, but I don't think I'll be able to walk that much tomorrow. I'll try not to borrow trouble though. After all, I do have oatmeal and a coffee pot and coffee and French vanilla creamer, so I can theoretically either make my own breakfast or get something from the Caf.
Hope everyone has a nice night!
