I may have Aspergers Syndrome but.... It does not mean that I am broken; nor does it mean that I am indeed of what you think is a 'cure'. I am still a person behind the label. We have thoughts too, you know; we love and hate, we cry and laugh. I'm human too. … Continue reading I may have Aspergers but…
I would like to bring more creative pieces to this blog; for this first post, I wrote a letter to a friend. (They won't ever read this blog-they don't know I even have a blog-but for sake of privacy, there's not a lot of personal information. There name has also been omitted.) Dear A.- … Continue reading A Letter To My Friend.

On social media, or just blogs in general, there has just been so much drama; be it Instagram follower purchases, or debates about small businesses. I have … Continue reading Blog Posts I Love. (Feat. Notebooks, style, and more!)
I know what you're thinking: "What's she on about now?" I'm tired of being told indirectly that I should feel shame for having Asperger's-such as being mocked for my dull voice, mimicked in my knowledge, or people trying to force eye contact to make me feel uncomfortable. Because being on the autism spectrum is pretty … Continue reading Here’s why I love having Asperger’s.
Good morning.- Can I be honest? It has been a privilege for me to interview various people from the age of fourteen-and I love it. It's one of my favourite parts of blogging. But you could probably say that it's unusual. (And I'm eighteen now!) At first it wasn't something to be taken seriously-this blog … Continue reading “What makes a good interview?”
On this blog, I often write about my life, and how it has been impacted by being diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. Nowadays, I'm quite happy with it; it's just a part of me what makes me 'me'.

Kindness is a virtue, but this world can lack it at the best of times. In light of recent events, I decided to write a list of 30 ways to read kindness: Give money to a homeless person.

This was a rambling note to myself-and indirectly to you, my readers-I wrote in my bullet journal, having been socially isolated, mocked, etc.This was my response, something I found really hard to articulate, edited and added to.

Hello.- Twitter is what I want to talk to you about today. Because, more and more, I find myself having a love/hate relationship with this social media site. I love this platform because....

Wait, strike that, today's post sounds narcissistic beyond belief. (Not my intention.) Anyway, this is a post idea I saw over at A Beautiful Chaos and This Stuff Is Golden; basically, the idea was to promote self love. (Always a good thing in my book.....I had to join in!) Self love is important, because it … Continue reading Five things I love about myself.
Hands up in you love a good police drama? I vaguely remember watching Series Three of Line Of Duty; if I'm totally honest, I can't recall all the specifics, but I do know that I just didn't't understand the plot line, due to my age.
