This is an ASL version of my announcement of becoming a Cuddlist-certified professional cuddler. For now, I am not adding voiceover or captions because it is aimed at users of ASL, especially those in the Deaf community who may have known me for many years and may be wondering about my latest blog announcement.
I made this video for my ASL students, as we are only together online now, and I decided to share it publicly in case others may benefit from it.
Because I began learning ASL at age 21 rather than at birth, I like to point my students to Deaf language models. Here are two videos of Deaf people signing about COVID-19:
- Coronavirus PSA Symptoms, Prevention and Travel History – American Sign Language (ASL)
- A Message from the NAD About Coronavirus (COVID-19)
There are many more videos out there! Please learn what you can to prevent the spread and talk about it in whichever language you choose.
I woke up with this song in my head, so I Googled it and found this video. I’m so glad I did. I didn’t know the singer was related to Peter Capaldi, and I thought it was really sweet that his cousin acted in his video. It’s a very moving story and you have to watch it till the end to fully appreciate it— but I won’t tell you what it is, because you know, “Spoilers.”
