All About Tessa
Hi! Susie is letting me post on her blog so I can tell you a little bit about myself. I just came here, from AGB-B, on Sunday. My name is Tessa Joyce Daniels and I'm a My AG #31. I'm 12 years old and in the 6th grade. Earlier this year, in the early spring, I was playing at a friend's house. We were near her pond and I slipped and fell in! Luckily I wasn't in the water for long but it was freezing and I got a really bad cold and ear infection. Well, one morning, I woke up and the pain from the ear infection was gone...but I couldn't hear anything in my right ear! I went to the doctor and he told me that I'll probably never be able to hear in my right ear again. After I heard the news, I cried for awhile. After my cry, I became determined that I wouldn't let this get the best of me. After all, I'm still the same old me who loves to swim, dance, hang out with friends and read magazines. I just had a new challenge.
Even though it's been a few months, I'm still getting used to only being able to hear in one ear. My friends have to talk a bit louder to me sometimes and they say I also talk louder now. I just don't realize I'm doing it. It's sorta like if you have headphones on and are talking to someone; sometimes you wind up talking louder to hear yourself over the music but you don't realize you're doing it (it's not quite the same but that's the best example I could think of-does that make sense?)
I'm going to start learning sign language, which will help in places and situations where I have to be really quiet (like a library). I want to teach the friends I'm making here; it would be neat to start a class afterschool. I hope some of the others are interested. I admit that before I became deaf in one ear, I hadn't given much thought to learning sign language but now I see how it's a good language to know.
My favorite colors are purple, pink and green. I'm a bubbly, friendly girl and I love dogs, especially huskies. I just got a puppy; his name is Pepper and he is the most adorable husky in the world! My favorite movies are Bring It On, Brave New Girl, Raise Your Voice, Gotta Kick it Up, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies. I love the Sisterhood books, too, and Chrissa's books.
Well, I think that's pretty much all there is to know. Oh, I'm on Innserstar U, too. My ID is Tessa12 (it works since that's my age ;) ).
Here are a few more photos of me:
