To start, it’s a beautiful day…. I arrived to my first class student already there. In this classroom there are 19 cpu’s and only 6 students.. So I sit at a computer next to the student(deaf). 30 min. into the class a young lady comes up to me “taps me on the back” and says “why are you in my seat?” During this time the instructor is speaking so I continued interpreting. I paused looked around the room then said “you can sit anywhere” her reply “NO! this is my seat” she then went on to say “you can sit in the corner” I looked at the student (Deaf) signed what the young lady told me “i can sit in the corner” she signed back “I’m not in it” now the young lady starts to login the cpu while I’m interpreting blocking my the veiw. I then stated “wait stop… If you come to class on-time then you could sit anywhere” wrong thing to say. She started using profanity “yo’ a$# don’t worry abt what I do” during all of this the instructor is still talking. So I interrupted the instructor stating that I couldn’t hear her which at time the young lady starts to explain to the instructor “the interpreter is sitting in my seat” I re-stated “if you would allow me to finish interpreting what is being said then I would move…..
WOW! It’s not even ten o’clock
Some how the time seems to”fly-by”
See my smile
today first day of “stepping out” of my comfort zone…. where will this lead to, will it end soon? GOD only knows
What I do know is ” that it’s time” to widen my zone, learn something new do something different.
yoga; meditating; work-on “voicing”
