It was really great but, the social work teacher was so excited about having Auslan interpreting students she went and found the plot to some drama (I think it’s a movie or a book or something) and gave it to us as a scenario…
“Amelia or Dylon Edwards 18 is hearing impaired and uses Auslan sign language to communicate. Recently her parents arranged for her to have a cochlear implant but Amelia is ambivalent about it and keeps losing it, which angers her father as they cost a lot. She recently witnessed a murder and is terrified the killer will come after her as he lost her cochlear implant.”
So, ignoring all the other problems with this scenario IT IS SO INAPPROPRIATE and WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON and it makes no sense!!!! Did the murderer take her CI? Is her angry dad the issue? Or the fact that her parents just made her go get unnecessary brain surgery? Or is it the MURDER?
I just don’t even…
But anyway, we just ignored most of it and made it up as we went along, and I think everyone had a good learning experience, so that’s good!
that’s a lot of butter.
there are fucking google eyes staring into your soul from every angle and you comment on the butter
to be fair it is a lot of butter

So I walked into the dentist this morning. My dentist asked me how my weekend was. I said “Good, I watched Captain America last night. I really liked it.” And my dentist says “Oh, my son is in that movie.” At first I thought he was joking but then I realized
Dr. Robert Evans
I looked it up
My dentist is Captain America’s dad
My doctor is JK Rowling’s husband.
JK Rowling’s husband has asked me if I am sexually active.

Omg, the announcement came through everyone!!
[link] there will be a Diploma of Auslan as of July this year!!!
It still sucks because the teachers who lost their jobs at Kangan still lose their jobs, but in the very least this is a big win for the Deaf community, because it means future interpreters!
it’s always horrifying when you put your finger on the thing that’s off about someone and it is that they have a political analysis where they should have a moral compass
it’s a realisation that usually happens in the worst possible circumstances
