media monday – love language

Hi, all! One of my favorite guilty pleasures is watching short films on YouTube during my lunchbreaks. So for today’s Media Monday, I’d like to share this lovely 5-minute love story with a touching ending. I think that, regardless of ability or lack thereof, everyone can speak the language of love.

Enjoy!

Peace,
Caitlin Michelle

media monday – josh sundquist’s “amputees for math nerds”

And here’s yet another Josh Sundquist video for Media Monday! I know, I know – I post a LOT of Josh Sundquist videos. But he’s just sooooo funny! And this video shows off his pretty twisted sense of humor. I love it!

Happy Monday <3

Peace,

media monday – april lockhart takes on the lumineers

 

When I first started teaching myself how to play guitar a couple years ago, I thought I was the only one-handed guitar girl on the planet. Then I discovered April Lockhart’s YouTube channel. So as much as I’d love to say that I was an original, I think I can be content knowing that I could TOTALLY be just like April if I had super bouncy hair, flawless vintage makeup (I’m secretly hoping for a makeup tutorial, April!), a twangy voice, and…you know….HEAPS of talent.

Enjoy April’s gorgeous rendition of The Lumineers’ “Hey Ho” and share the music video (which is adorable) with all your friends (especially that guy you’ve been crushing on forever, since the lyrics are pretty darn romantic).

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 🙂
