Go to purse it's true. They can make sure that that is because it works. But do you see. What do you do when someone hurts your feelings. I go somewhere to myself and I think that I think about what the president said and sometimes from Tennessee. My eyes how can I walk away from them when they hurt my feelings.

really it is I don't think that is but with an eye for the way out. OK. All right. Do you have the good work that isn't off junking Neka room. That's good to do but if there's room. Right back. Did you know that all the animals that went to know it's arcane in years. Yes except the worms they came in apples. When I was born I was partially sided when I was a sixth grader here. That's when I
first lost my sight when I first arrived it was kind of scary but you know I kind of got used to it. I used to give me some time for it all the time. Yeah you know some the proud to live with yourself probably can't do too much about it except to be killed in in a dreadful start with a vision. Sanjoy says or do you wear shoes for a loss. I don't expect myself to be able to do everything right in Detroit. Time takes me a little longer to do things like get aside for homework I have to type it so the teacher could read it for me or. You probably need some help for her. When you

I think all the tests I have I just feel pretty sure
schools are different because what they could do. This is a model of land that was about 12 she helped me at a loss. Anything that's fun and what's the like in the middle. Down the mountains in California go up to the right.
Rise and mountains. That's so sweet. Just one. And now I think people talk to me so I go ahead. You really want to do it do it
feel it feel good. No thanks. You'll be able to do stuff without me he is not. He'd left behind have to have somebody with me all the time I don't want to hurt myself. But you know I'm a nervous little bit. These are books written in braille Braille as a system of rays docs used by the blind who are reading and writing to read braille use one of both hands moving them from left to right over the raised DOS. If you would like to know what Braille feels like sand for this Braille alphabet zoom card right zoom down the way that lets me I know not that my keys.
What shall I do. Yeah I'd only been here. What do I do. Do I think this is a masking tape loss and I'm going to show you how to make one. Now before you start if you want to you can put some newspaper down to cover the surface you going to work on. If you don't want to spill anything on it. OK. Now you start out with a cleaning glass bottle and you tear small pieces of masking tape off. It's better if you tear because they don't look as good cut and you start putting on putting them on the bottle. OK. And overlapping pieces and making sure they're smooth and they're in all the grooves. Make sure it's pressed down tight
now it probably take you long to do all of that mess. But when you finally finish take a wet rag and dip it in some shoe polish. Any color doesn't matter right now. Spread it over the bar. Anywhere that there's tape you can use paint too. But if you do make sure you use an oil base or acrylic paint because water colors won't stick to it. This is a sort of messy thing to do. It's nice when it's finished. Now when you finish covering it take a dry right.
You buff it up make sure you do this before the Polish thoroughly dries. Do you have a hard time. So you want to smooth out all the polish. You know you can put some flowers on it. Do I think you're like the was you are holding on to what was the how do you know how do you know. Yeah. Again you're like oh yeah yeah. There's no box. But yeah you love me.
