Hi guys Lucy is back and is going to make up for lost time! I am going to post a lot more on this blog! I am going to be honest, I have been a little low and my video on not coping with blindness probably gave you some insight into how I was feeling. I didn’t want to make up excuses to you all and I thought by documenting how I feel it might help some others out there going through sight loss know that they aren’t alone.
My new video this week is about space. Before I lost my sight I used to love looking out my window at the stars and I used to check my twitter feed to see if there was any chance that I would ever catch a glimpse of a meteor shower, I even had a telescope for a time. I lost interest in this as I felt upset, naturally, that I couldn’t observe the beautiful night sky anymore, so I gave up. After being upset and consumed with A-Levels for a while I thought the summer was the perfect time to get all my hobbies back and get feeling like normal Lucy again! I loved doing this video as I found out a little more about blind astrophysicists! This really gives me hope for the future and the many scientific advancements to come. I talk in the video about my friend’s clothing line called ‘To The Moon’, he makes really lovely tops and jumpers for sale that he designs himself. So I really recommend checking his clothing line out, I love the tops as they are perfect for tucking into high wasted shorts or skater skirts perfect for the winter and for summer.
Audio description of the top I am wearing in the video: It is a plain white background with the words ‘magnificent desolation’ in a square, black font, the A’s have been replaced with triangles. Below this text is a spaceman completely in black and white print, looks like it has been printed on with a wood block. If you want more descriptions of any of the designs don’t hesitate to email or message me on twitter with the hash tag ttmclothing.

I have some really exciting videos coming up for you guys including a cover, a new channel trailer (with music produced by my boyfriend Ollie and our best friend Jonny), a few blind life hacks videos and a surprise video! Cannot wait for you guys to watch them all! Hope you all are having a lovely summer! I would love to know where all of you are jetting off to! Even if you aren’t like myself let me know what you are up to. I have to get started on my long list of English Literature books I have to read for my A2 coursework next year after results! I am actually quite looking forward to burying myself into some books for a couple of weeks as I am a bookworm!
Write soon, Lucy xx
