I also talked to a blind chemist I've known about for ages and never talked to. He's in Alpha Chi Sigma (chemistry fraternity) with me, and he'd heard of me as well, but never talked with me. We're doing similar projects as far as making chemistry more accessible to blind people, so it's good to have people to talk to about chemistry. I haven't written the guy back who was blinded befre finishing his chemical engineering degree, and I plan to do that today. He's got a lot of advantage on me though as far as engineering goes as he can see some (he can see the screen and also see enough to get around in a plant), so though we have similar issues and challenges, he's very lucky he didn't lose all of his vision. I'm starting to realize how cool (and dorky) it is to collaborate with people in the academic arena. Hey, maybe I'll chage the world somehow with my nerdiness.
Speaking of academics and nerdiness. I'm heading back to Fayetteville on probably saturday. I'm not looking forward it too much, mostly because I won't be able to play with my piano, and the new player I'm putting on it at some poitn soon. Perhaps I'll have to come home more often and play it since I'll have long weekends.
Well, I can't think about anything more exciting to write about today for fear fo bbing boring for much longer, so I'll close. More soon.
