Hi Guys

Hi Guys

i am just a normal girl, who is graduating college (university) in a week, but the unique thing about me, is that i have a vision problem. it is quite rare actually. it is called "Peters Anomaly" and is diagnosed at birth. i have had 60+ surgeries in my 22 years on this earth. I have chosen to write a blog about my life with this visual disorder, because i feel like it is very unique, and i have always wanted my story to be "out there".

I have a sister and a brother, my sister is 30, and my brother is 27. my sister has the same condition as me, but she has i worse than me, plus she is a doctor. I look up to her as my role model.

here is where I will talk about my life, as well as the changes that happen within it.

as of late, I have been enrolled in Graduate School for teaching. i have been studying History for the past 4 years, and loved it, and I have always wanted to become a teacher, so I figured why not be a teacher of History, and if that doesn't work out, I will go back to school for Special Education. I am the person who always has to have her plan figured out before I do anything big within my life.

any initial question feel free to ask below =)

Till next time,


  1. I feel like I can relate to you so much in the sense of adversity and life. I admire that you have a disorder which you are not willing to step down to and I also admire that you are willing to share your experiences with other people :D
    I think my first suggestion would be to maybe change the name of your blog? "A normal girl" label diminishes everything else you have to offer because, as a reader, I could be looking through the blogs name and keep on reading when a read a tittle with "a normal girl".
    I am quick to think, "so am I and so are all girls" and will move on. But if you have in your blog name the disorder's name or just the word disorder or anything that will give a reader a sense of what your blog is really about, that will just help you share your story out there.
    A lot of readers a visual so, even though you will be mostly writing, don't forget to include images. It could be of pictures you have taken, or drawings or anything.
    I will follow you and see how this blog progresses.


    1. it is named "through her eyes" as a way to get the reader interested enough to read it, at least I think so haha, thank you so much for following and stay tuned to future posts :)
