inspirational quotes

Dear lovely readers,

I’m sorry I haven’t written much lately, but it’s finals week and I need to be studying my butt off and writing a million papers right now. Know that I’ll get back to writing regularly as soon as I finish up the semester. In the meantime, enjoy this board of wonderfully inspirational quotes.

Peace,
Caitlin 🙂

the stream of caitlinness shop is now open

Yep, you read that correctly! I designed some shirts via Skreened.com specifically for those with limb differences. I LOVE quirky t-shirts with witty sayings, but I noticed there’s a lack of funny shirts for those of us who lack an arm. So I made some. Please feel free to click here and check out the designs. You can buy them right from the website. And don’t forget to let me know what you think of them in the comments below!

Peace,
Caitlin 🙂

media/meme monday – $#*! people say to amputees

  Yes, it’s another Josh Sundquist video! It’s just too funny not to share. He made this during the “$#*! People Say” video craze, and it’s brilliant. The best part is that it features things people have actually said to him. I guess most folks just don’t know what to say when they meet someone with a limb difference. I mean, we deal with stares and awkward comments on a daily basis. So why not have a little fun with it? Here are some of the funniest (and weirdest) comments and questions I’ve gotten:
“Do you sink to one side when you swim?”- random lady at swimming pool
“You’re a cyborg! Do you know how many dates you can get at a sci-fi convention?” – my lovely and hilarious friend Liz
“Hey, weren’t you wearing that ring on your other hand yesterday?” – my boyfriend Chris (to be fair, he had been running on very little sleep when he said it)
“Do you wear it while you’re sleeping?” -random person (in reference to my prosthetic)
“Can I touch it?” – creepy strangers
Here’s hoping that you enjoy Josh’s video and that no weirdos you meet today invade your personal space!
Peace,
Caitlin 🙂
