Collage / College


College / Collage

After 46 years I am proud to say that today I learned how to spell the word College correctly. No longer are my colleges collages of experiences but now colleges of learning. Letters remain a mystery to me no matter how big they are some of them are really hard to see. Word shape is my preferred method of reading, and the words collage and college look the same to me.

Realizing that I’ve been making this mistake for some time still embarrasses me a bit but now I know. I’d so much rather people tell me the things that I’m doing differently. I”m not going to say wrong since from my perspective it didn’t change anything. I just didn’t know that it bothered sighted people. Its a very good thing for people to tell me if I’m doing something like picking my nose in public or spelling college as collage. Its hard to fix something you don’t know about.
