Asl: Going Deaf for a Day Essay
Going deaf was a different experience for me. It was the most difficult quarrel Ive ever done. It completely sucked that I couldnt use most of my electronics. I couldnt use my phone to call my mom but I was able to text her. I couldnt listen to music which was the worst because I have to listen to music when Im working out, provision or doing work for school. But being deaf wasnt all that bad. One of the best things of being deaf was not listening to my mom repineMy mom couldnt get mad me because she knew I couldnt hear anything. It was also very peaceful around the house for me. I dont have to listen to loud vehicles that come down my street, neighbors dog barking and my neighbors loud spanish music. There some things that I did have to determine to my daily life. I usually have to call my younger sister to tell her that the food is done or clean her room, but my sister neer hears me so I have physically grab her attention.Instead I used a bell to call her or throw a clod at h er to get her attention. Also I usually watch my anime shows but since I cant hear anything, I watched it with subtitles without sound. People usually responded to me screaming at me but they forgot that was going death for a day. My mom had throw something at me to get my attention and my sister would grab me if she needed anything. Or they would write their questions on paper but most of the time I would read their lips There were few difficult things that I went through.When I have no internet, I couldnt watch my anime or other shows. I had to put my phone on vibrate and always to have it with me. There wasnt much difficulties besides these but everything else was easy. Im Khmer/Laotian and it was seriously for me to understand my grandparents since they dont speak english. I learned that without hearing, its hard to communicate with other people and family. Without language, its hard to understand somebodys culture.
