What’s Up With Me, #What’sUpOxford #FTSF

What’s up?

QqC8ClR.jpg

What’s up with me lately? Hmm. What a question.

I have been talking about my desire to improve audio descriptive services in movie theatres, for the visually impaired, and I honestly haven’t stopped talking about it for days and days, with no end in sight because, I just figure, that’s the best way to keep my message spreading across Canada for the next six months in which I plan to run my survey.

I contacted local media and am going to be on my local television station to speak on this issue. I don’t know to whom my message will end up reaching, but I figure I have to start somewhere.

And so I thought I’d share this photo of me at Rogers TV and about to speak to the two hosts of
“What’s Up Oxford?”
about my passion project in progress.

I am nervous to be on camera, but it’s all necessary for my cause.

This has been a
Finish the Sentence Friday post,
in its new format where each week is the same but different.

This week, we’re sharing a photo and the story behind it. Happy to host along with co-host Kenya G. Johnson from
Sporatically Yours
in toe.

  1. Wow, Kerry! I’m so happy for you that you’ve found good outlets to spread the word so that you can enjoy movies to the fullest. I look forward to finding out how effective it was. You rock! So many people complain about what they don’t like about something and I always admire people who do something to change it. So cool!

    • I am depending on a helpful and plentiful result and outcome at the end of this study. I fear I won’t get enough of a reaction, but if I don’t, I don’t want it to be because I didn’t make an effort. That’s why I am contacting media and speaking about it, possibly to the eventual annoyance of others who may grow tired of hearing me repeating the same thing, over and over again. I guess that’s just a risk I’m going to have to take.

  2. I am nervous to be on camera, but it’s all necessary for my cause.
    Believe it or not, I can identify with that… at least in a more low-key sense. For me, once I set out to write the Doctrine blog (which was a blog only because of the Wakefield Doctrine) I found myself doing things I’d not only never thought I’d do, but I was doing them with less…. paralysis than I’d of thought. lol
    Passion is a powerful thing…. (its transforms fear, doesn’t get rid of it but transforms it into something not so antithetical as it seems when it attaches itself to more mundane undertakings.)
    Good work, yo.
    To change the world (in however tiny a manner) is something to be proud of.

    • Passion does transform fear. That’s very true Clark. I will try to keep that in mind as I do this thing. Afraid of failure, but aiming for success, and the passion is my guide.

  3. You are amazing, Kerry! You are a great example of sticking to a goal and doing something that will really make a difference in not only your life but in the lives of others.

  4. I reiterate Kristi, Clark and Pat’s feelings. I admire your willingness to embrace the fear in order to pursue your passions and causes close to your heart. You set an awesome example for others, myself included.

    • I get that way, often, when I’m asked the questions I need to answer, to explain my position. It’s hard for me to know truly how I sound until I am able to hear myself back afterward.
