- The first attempt at interpreting this I had to stop after the first statement. I watched and gave myself enough time to get a whole coherent thought and where I was going with it, but as I started to interpret I totally lost everything he had said after.
- At times I used vocabulary that matched the speaker: police, strike, command, chaos (I think it fit at times).
- At times I used vocabulary that did not match the speakers affect or spoke in ASL gloss: ummm, lousy pay, "did have a really good work ethics," these people (confusing on who I am referring to), chaos (riot may be a better word choice at times), hose plugged in, cops, gas guns (is that the correct name for it??)
- I wanted to video tape myself to see what I look like when I am interpreting from ASL to English. I thought I did not do much external processing other than my eyes getting bigger or smaller, and my face showing confusing or nodding.

1. Context: This man came into a High School philosophy class to share his opinion and philosophers opinions and views on the definition of courage. There are 2 deaf students and 25 hearing students.
2. One example of a special relationship in this context is when the house kicks out two thieves, it shows where the house is and where they go after they are kicked out.
3. There is an example of temporal relationship when the army of 10,000 is coming to the smaller army and city and the smaller army holds them back so the city can set up defense.
4. An example of logical relationship is the boy who faced his fear of the dark and over came it.
5. One hypothesis that was accurate was there would be a few different definitions of courage explained.
One hypothesis that was not accurate was that I did not know all of the examples he would use to explain courage.

1. Context: The lady came to a Culture class at a University to talk about her experience in Hong Kong and this was the introduction story. There are 40 people in the class, 5 Deaf and 35 hearing. Most are college age and a few are non-traditional students. The Teacher is hearing so interpreters are always present in class.
2. Her and her husband had to stay in Anchorage Alaska on their way to Hong Kong because their plane had an emergency. The right engine caught on fire, so it was replaced and they made their way to Hong Kong the next day.
3. After getting some feedback from a couple professors I tried to remember to wait enough before starting to sign so I get more of the meaning and where the speaker is heading. So I tried to do that, but I caught myself starting too early. I also have used this material before so it was helpful.
4. I used my memory and making sure I understood the meaning and where the speaker was headed with her story. And because I have used this text to interpret consecutively and simultaneously before it was helpful.
5. Her and her husband were traveling to Hong Kong and on their way to Japan before connecting over to Hong Kong there was an emergency that made them land in Anchorage Alaska at a cargo airport. After landing and evacuating the plane they saw that one of the engines were on fire. That night it was replaced and they all make their trip to Japan and then to Hong Kong.
