  1. I am @Mary Beth!! Always an adventure moving and living some place new 😆
  2. The squeak and creak of my new apartment 😆 HAHA The hustle and bustle and honking taxis of NYC to remind me how far I’ve come since Parsons! And being able to carry a full blown conversations with my coworkers without having to see their faces!!
  3. Thank you @Jewel and @Mary Beth!! I’m looking forward to the move but the smoke alarm has me a little anxious as I try to figure it out. Thanks for the suggestion MB! I haven’t seen this one yet but looks promising 😁
  4. Hellooooooo HPs 😁 I know I’ve been away for a good amount of time but I’ve landed a new role (at RL) and a new apartment closer to work. YAY! I’ll finally get 2-4 hours of my time back now that I won’t commute as far 🥳 That being said I need some help and some recommendations for the smoke alarm especially while sleeping or when my ears are out. I’ve found some possible options but I’m not completely sold on them so I’d like to hear what my friends on HPs use! Thank you for your help 😁
  5. @Mary Featherston It’s a great feeling being able to understand everybody you talk to (for the most part)!!
  6. @Jewel You made an awesome list!!! Now I’ll add a few specific ones of my own 😁 *I recently went with a friend to see Anastasia on Broadway (for the first time since getting my CI) and could follow the entire story and dialogue. I loved that. *I work in apparel (Technical Design to be specific) and during fittings it’s my responsibility to take fit notes/comments to send to the vendor on pattern and garment fit corrections and I would never be able to do it without my CI. There is a lot of talk during these fittings between different departments (PD, Design, Merch) that if I didn’t have my CI, I’d never be able to follow!! *At work, I’d never hear people calling my name from across the room, now I do! *I love that I can understand accents from around the world with very little effort *Music sounds the best it ever has - like a complete song not half or part of a song *Its been very freeing being able to talk and listen on the phone with ease *I can eavesdrop on conversations at work...hehe so fun! Never could do that before Thats all I have for now off the top of my tired head 😴😁
  7. Worked for me! 😎 so cool we have a poll feature now
  8. Thanks for sending @Dave in Pittsburgh I’ll check it out as Rayovac is my favorite battery brand. No my bro is not laid off - he’s essential personnel being a Federal Cop. @Mary Beth I have checked with my CSR at Med El and my insurance doesn’t really seem to cover batteries or not that well. It’s cheaper for me to buy on my own. Rayovac is awesome for HA batteries - the only brand I have used that didn’t have any dead batteries in the pack and last a lot longer than other batteries- definitely recommend even for household batteries that go in remotes and such. I’ll Definitely be looking into buying these 😁
  9. @Dave in Pittsburgh Where did you get the Rayovac CI batteries? They are my preferred choice of HA batteries and had no idea they made CI batteries. They always last a long time for me and never any dead batteries in the pack unlike other brands 👍
  10. So pretty @Mary Featherston!!! Wonderful to hear the leaves rustling about isn’t it?
  11. @Valentin Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas
  12. Wonderful @Jewel!!! I love wind chimes even more now that I can hear the full range. I even hang them on my ceiling fans so they chime/tinkle when the fan is on 😁
