Hey there, thank you for stopping by! 🙂
To cover the basics – my name is Glen, I live in London, I’m in my 30s, I work as an IT developer, and I enjoy going out and about, socialising, comedy, sci-fi & fantasy, and classic rock & pop music.
Oh, and I have slightly dodgy eyesight, as a result of Aniridia and Nystagmus – but they’ve never stopped me doing the things I enjoy. I may need help or find things a bit frustrating sometimes, bu ton the whole I’m very independent. To me, my vision is normal, as I’ve had my condition since birth. I don’t know any different. So don’t worry about my sight, because I don’t – my sense of humour’s much worse! 😉
In this blog and on my Youtube channel you’ll find posts and videos about my disability, my adventures out and about, my favourite music and various other topics. All videos containing speech have closed captions, and discussion videos usually have an equivalent text post in this blog, so you have a choice of how to enjoy them.
So please enjoy looking around, there should be something for everyone:
- If you’re visually impaired or disabled, or you look after such an individual, I hope my experiences are of some interest and support to you.
- If you’re not disabled, I hope my disability posts help to clear up some false assumptions and misconceptions, and give you some useful insights and advice.
- And apart from that, I hope people find things among my music, TV and film tastes that they also like, and enjoy reading about my travel experiences and other things.
Do feel free to comment on my posts and videos with any respectful opinions, questions or suggestions you may have. You’re also very welcome to tweet me of course, while private contact can be made by Twitter DMs (if we follow each other) or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks again for visiting! 🙂
