Oxford – Art, Academia, Jools & Jimmy

Last weekend I had a nice little getaway in the beautiful historic city of Oxford, which I’ve never visited before. I spent the daylight hours visiting a museum and going on a walking tour, while in the evenings I attended a concert and a stand-up comedy gig, so I made good use of my time there. None of it is sponsored or gifted, and I hope you enjoy this review of what I got up to!

Aniridia Day – My Shining Success Story

HappyΒ Aniridia Day! πŸ™‚

Today we’re celebrating people’s achievements and ambitions with Aniridia, as part of the Shining Success campaign, for which I edited a promo video I’m very proud of. There are also Facebook and Twitter pages for the day, where people are sharing their stories, photos and videos to mark the occasion, so please do check them out.

It’s already bringing people together with aniridia who have never met before, and helping to spread a positive message of positivity, support, solidarity and hope for the future. And if you want to find aniridia support groups, the links on my Disability Links page may help.

So this post is my contribution for the day, talking about my own achievements and ambitions, as someone living with aniridia. This is also available asΒ a videoΒ as well.

Journal – February 2007

Here’s another month of entries from my journal. The big event this time has been a trip to Blackpool with my visually impaired friend from Bournemouth University, to give him assistance at the National Union of Students Conference. Plus I had another of my regular trips to see a friend in Exeter. And I’ve mentioned various other little things as always. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – November-December 2004

Here’s another instalment of entries from my journal, bringing us to the end of 2004. I’ve been doing a work experience placement at my local council, and I’ve continued to enjoy my music and DVD purchases as usual.

Unfortunately, however, I don’t have any entries for December as they were accidentally deleted! So I’ve just briefly mentioned the key points from the month, and added another top 100 list to make up for it. That anomaly aside, however, I hope you find these entries interesting!

Journal – August 2004

Welcome to my next instalment of journal posts. Unusually for summer, I’ve had rather a lot to write about this month, as I got my full list of university results while I was continuing my search for work, Dad fell ill and had to go to hospital, we had some work done on the house, the Athens Olympics took place, I celebrated my birthday, and I continued to enjoy more new music and DVD purchases. So this is probably my longest journal post so far, and I hope you enjoy it!

Journal – April-May 2004

Welcome to the latest selection of my journal posts. I’ve combined a couple of months together again, as I haven’t had huge amounts to write for each, while busy revising for exams and preparing for my graduation. But I’ve also continued to buy DVDs and music of course, and there are a couple more music polls I’ve found as well. So I hope you find these entries interesting as usual!

Journal – February-March 2004

Here’s the next bunch of posts from my journal. I’ve combined 2 months together here, as my entries for both are fairly short while I’ve been busy with university work. So here you’ll find out about my latest exam result, more DVDs and music that I’ve been buying, and which of our sitcoms has been voted the best by the British public. I hope you enjoy!

Journal – January 2004

We’ve made it to another year of journal posts.Β This month I stayed with a friend at Bournemouth University for a few days, continued my own studies at Exeter University including another exam, got addicted to another video game, and bought a few more DVDs. Plus there’s another top 100 list, for which I take no responsibility if you willingly explore the links and come away with any unwanted earworms! So let’s crack on with it, and I hope you enjoy!
