Nobody knows what its like to live with the ability to only see out of one eye. That is something I have lived with as long as I can remember. The ones that could honestly understand it, are the ones that have the same problem. For me, that means I have to either work or concentrate extra hard on a task that I’d like to complete. That also means that I can’t drive and that can be problematic for me, especially when I would like to get places.
One of the most important things to me when it comes to getting places is my safety. The area I live in is not nearly as safe as it was when I was a child. On top of it all, the public transportation we do have does not go as far as I would like to go. The places I like to go are in Indiana which is not that far away. I know some people would say walk, but that is easy said than done. There is the part about safety and then the part of that I do have a bad knee which is something I have had since I was in 5th grade. I can’t always walk long distances without being in pain in my one knee. Up until I went away to college, I was probably a little bit under weight. I was usually the smallest kid in the class. I am not even 5 feet but close. I am on the short side of things.
When I went away to college, it was one of the best things I ever did and I honestly miss it. Going to college, you really did not need a car to get around. I was able to get to all the places I needed to go through the bus service there. Its not the same way here. Even though the winters there were mind compared to here, I would not want to live there all my life. I honestly would love to live somewhere that the weather is a bit better than it is here. I will be honest. I do not like snow, so I would want to live somewhere that either has no snow or very little snow. When I was a kid, I loved California. I know its not the place to live especially since I cannot drive. I though probably would love to live somewhere on the west coast that meets my criteria of being able to get to where I need to go without needing to drive.
Before I could even move to another state, I would need to have some sort of job lined up along with a place to live. I don’t even know know where to start or even if its possible. Its something I really need to do if I had the means to do. I do want more to my life than what I have now. The money I currently make is not a whole lot, but it does pay for this website.
