A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to watch a live taping of the Tyra Banks Show in
This was my first time in a studio and I had no idea what to expect, I would be lying if I said that I was not concerned with how I was going to be able to follow along. I feel that way no matter where I go. If this had taken place six months ago, I would not even consider going. Thank goodness, I decided to go this time! I was pleasantly surprised when I had very little difficulty understanding everything that was going on, especially when Tyra talked. It almost seemed that she was standing right next to me no matter where she was standing. It was an awesome experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
The moments did not seem to stop after we left the show because I had very little difficulty understanding the Indian taxi cab driver from the back seat! At Port Authority, my friends and I sat in the back of the bus while it was passengers were getting on to go home and I decided to call my mom and I don't have T-Coil activated on my cochlear implant. I had no problem understanding her with the engine noise, people chattering and feet stomping. It was a good day, a good day indeed!
Speaking of good days, my buddy Sam had his second ear activated on Friday and he is currently listening to Led Zeppelin infamous song "Stairway to Heaven" all the live long day. He had a rough go with his first CI, like me, but it seems like this one is off to a great start! He has on me on the edge of my chair waiting for a post about his new moments :)
