BSL Video Series: Spare Time > Loves, Likes and Dislikes

With the number of spare time activities out there, I could learn them all and make as many videos to cover them but I’m not right now. If I learnt them all I would be very proud of myself. The previous post showed the signs for the spare time signs that I did learn during my introduction course.

For this post, I am using those I have learnt to put them together into sentences to show whether I love, like or dislike the activity. I’ve done a few for each category to show how these can be signed.

Love:

  1. I love writing
  2. I love reading
  3. I love meeting my friends

Like: 

  1. I like the cinema
  2. I like dancing
  3. I like sign language

Dislike:

  1. I don’t like running
  2. I don’t like cricket
  3. I don’t like video games

Some of my own loves, likes and dislikes shown in the videos. What are yours?

BSL Video Series: Spare Time Signs

There’s a number of spare time activities to learn, more then I have learnt in this series. Many of them, however, have obvious body movements. Be careful when watching, as a couple of signs have similar actions, for example, Cricket and Hockey. Think about the small differences; how the bat or stick is held and lip patterns.

Whether the activities are those you’re interested in or not; it’s still good to learn them. If it’s an interest of someone else, you’ll understand them. As there are quite a few signs, I’ve split them up into alphabetical videos. Some letters may be combined if there’s only one or two for that letter.

B:

  1. Basketball
  2. Birdwatching

C:

  1. Car Racing
  2.  Computer Games
  3.  Computers
  4. Cricket
  5. Cycling

D and F:

  1. Dancing
  2. Driving
  3. Football
  4. Fishing

G and K:

  1. Going to a Resturant
  2. Going to the Cinema
  3. Kayaking

L and M:

  1. Listening to the Radio
  2. Meeting my Friends
  3. Music

  1. Playing the Guitar
  2. Playing the Piano
  3. Playing the Violin

R:

  1. Reading
  2. Relaxing
  3. Rugby
  4. Running

The Choices Made in My Life

The choices I make in my life are so that I can shine. I do what I can and choose want I want to focus on. There are times I may need to delegate so the day to day grind can get done.

I may make choices that turn messy but I chose it. Whether others want to go ahead and judge, they can. That’s not what’s important. My happiness is. They can judge but it’s not their choices, they are mine.

I take the time to evaluate / reflect on the messy in my life. To figure out the whys and what went wrong. This is so I can learn from the unrest / failure to help grow and move forward to a better outcome.

I’ve found putting the main goal into smaller steps more manageable to achieve. I’m learning more about myself each day and what drives me to achieve or up the wall.

I’m one that underestimates the week ahead to the point I don’t finish tasks or goals I set myself. Instead of jumping in feet first all the time, I need to take a step back and look what’s involved in the coming weeks and calculate my spare time to see if I’m able to give the goal actions the commitment it’s needed.

January, so far, I’ve felt we’ve done well as a group to tick off some actions towards making our house a home.

Eight ticked off and one we decided wasn’t needed any more.

BSL Video Series: Describing Family Members

Using the past two BSL Video Series posts on Family Members and Describing Vocab I have put together sentences and questions and answers to describe my own family members and my own features to help develop my signing. There are a few videos shown in this post; take the time to learn the signs from the previous posts so that putting them into a sentence will seem easier to follow.

The first video is showing the signs to describe my eye colour:

This second video is showing the signs to answer me being engaged and single:

This third video is showing signs to answer me being married with 2 children:

Family Members:

This video is showing the signs describing my Brothers hair:

This video is showing the signs to describe my Grandmas age:

This video is showing the signs to describe my Mothers shape:

This video is showing the signs to describe my Sisters height:

This video is showing the signs to describe my Parents martial status:

This video is showing signs of describing members of my family in one:

From these past three posts: Do you think you’d be able to describe yourself and some of your family members?

‘We Have Heat’

The central heating and waste pipes are now set up. We’ve scraped and sweeped some more if the floors. We’ve 2 left to do. It’s tiring renovating a house. I’m glad I bought this house but I don’t want another renovation project. I’m happy to redecorate but I don’t want to go back to bare brick again.

We saw my dad and step mum which was lovely. I certainly need to see them more often then I do.

My new job starts tomorrow. I’m excited with a slight nervous but in calmer then I have been previously when starting a new job. Hopefully this continues into tomorrow.
