Let's Talk About Disability Pride! (I Met One of the Producers from Crip Camp!)

  Today is the 31 st anniversary of the American’s with Disabilities Act and Disability Pride Month! In case you didn’t know t his important civil rights law works to ensure all people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else (Social Media: Tweets & Posts, n.d). What a month to show your support for the disability community! This past week I attended the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) summer conference in Austin, Texas and the opening speaker was Andréa LaVant one of the producers of Crip Camp. She told her story of growing up as a Black disabled women and how it affected her. What stood out to me the most was that while she had been taught about Black pride she had never been taught about disability pride. Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video “Let’s Talk about Disability Pride” with a black colored fist that reads Support Disability Rights. As a former Special Education teacher I remember talking about f

Adult Daily Living Skills: Pigs in a Blanket (Air Fryer Recipe)

 Guys I love a quick and easy recipe especially towards the end of the week when I do not feel like cooking. Cooking is one of the most important Adult Daily Living Skills and probably one of the most tedious next to cleaning. Think about it what would happen if you did not know how to cook? In addition to your stomach letting you know immediately, your mood would suck and you would be miserable. Remember that Snicker’s commercial? That’s right you are NOT yourself when you’re hungry!  

Figure 1: This is a YouTube thumbnail of my video on “ADL: Pigs in a Blanket (Air Fryer Recipe) with several pictures of me preparing them. 



So I didn’t turn into the UN-jolly green giant due to my hunger I decided to make pigs in a blanket in my Air Fryer since I knew that I already had the ingredients. The recipe only called for hotdogs, biscuits, and an Air Fryer all of which I had. I started by opening the can of biscuits and spreading them out on a plate before cutting the hotdogs up in small sections. I made sure to press the biscuits out some so the hotdogs would fit inside.

Figure 2: This is a photo of biscuits and hotdogs on a plate.

 

I would recommend using a great brand of biscuits as this is what really makes the recipe. I then put the hotdogs in the middle of the biscuits and rolled up the sides to make sure it was covered completely. I actually ran out of biscuits and had to put two hotdogs in a few of the biscuits but it worked out just fine. Be sure to grease your Air Fryer with cooking spray so they don’t stick and then set the Air Fryer on 350 degrees for about 6-8 minutes.

 

Figure 3: These are my biscuits with the hotdogs rolled inside of them on a plate.

 

Make sure the biscuits and hotdogs are completely cooked. You can jazz it up with a nice dipping sauce for more flavor. I used ketchup and mustard mixed together and it tasted great! Be sure to check out my eBook below where I have another fun and easy Air Fryer recipe!

Tips for First Year Doctoral Students

  Figure 1 :  This is a picture of a black doctoral cap   Well my first year as a doctoral student has come to an end. I turned in my last assignment of the semester earlier this week and man did it feel good! I still plan to take summer courses but I have about a month break until then. This first year has taught me so much about my major of higher education and myself. This past semester I took on History of Higher Education and Introduction to Quantitative Statistics. While the history course wasn’t so bad the stats course was a whole other ball game! Especially for someone who has always struggled with numbers. This course took a lot of getting used to and reminded me of somethings that all first year doctoral students should know. Figure 2: This is a picture of pink balloon letters that spell the word "friends". First things first make friends with the people in your program. This may be hard due to COVID and if you are in an online program like myself but don’t le

Summer Check-In !

  Alright guys we are half way through the summer semester and I thought I would do a simple check-in to see how things were going! If you are a student then you know the summer semester goes by quick due to the courses typically lasting about 6-8 weeks. This means there is most likely an assignment and test or quiz due every week! Check out the tips below to ensure that you aren’t getting left behind this summer. Figure 1: This a thumbnail for my YouTube video on “Summer Check-In” where I am smiling while sitting in my office.   Check your grades AND email daily. I check my grades every morning to ensure that nothing is missing and everything that I completed has been accounted for. I also check my email multiple times a day which recently helped a lot when my professor emailed me to tell me that I missed a question on an assignment and needed to re-upload it ASAP. Imagine if I had missed that! Failed an Assignment? Reach out ASAP! If you have failed an assignment, exam, or quiz reac
