Number Two: Take a Sign Language Class

Number Two on my 21 Before 21 list is take a Sign Language class. I started American Sign Language I last week. It's sure to be an intense and quiet class this summer. It's completely "voices off"; the equivalent of "No English" in a foreign language class. It allows us to learn more quickly, although it is paralyzing as well. I love sign language, and I'm already enjoying this class so much.

Below is an fun ASL "music video." It's cool to watch, even if you don't know sign language. Maybe it will inspire you! ; ) I apologize if you don't like Miley Cyrus.





Thank you for all the sweet messages. They really cheered me up - I feel better already! We still aren't sure what the cause of the illness is, but as long as it goes away, I am content.

To me learning to sign was easier than learning Spanish. Course like with everything, if you don't use it, you begin to lose it. Ive become really rusty at it.
