As I had written about rather extensively before, I love to plan. I love having a planner, personalising it, logging details, debilitating over colours, sticking in Washi tape... But the question 'why' was never really answered. As you can see, I've had quite a few planners throughout the year. Personally, this year has seen me taking … Continue reading Why I Love Planning.
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.

Because being on the autism spectrum is pretty … Continue reading Here’s why I love having Asperger’s.

But I really use to dislike myself because of it. For this post, I wanted to write a … Continue reading Why I use to dislike having Aspergers Syndrome.

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. And I wanted to share it with you. Here's a wish of mine; yes, I know that you'll perceive … Continue reading A wish of mine that will never come true.
It wasn't too long ago that I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome; to be honest, it wasn't really a surprise. I was always the lonely kid, with their head stuck in a book, too knowledgable for their own good, and way too nosy too boot. But since then, promoting Aspergers Syndrome has become more and … Continue reading Why promoting Asperger’s syndrome is important to me.
For a while now, I've felt sick and tired. Why? Because various people made me feel ashamed to be on the autism spectrum, when really, it has a lot of benefits. And, all the people I've met with ASD are pretty cool. I had to make a list as to why I love being on … Continue reading 13 things I love about having Aspergers Sydrome.

"What does it feel like to have Aspergers?" It's a question that I've been asked previously, and one that I've struggled to respond to. To have Aspergers is completely subjective, as it's a condition that's on a Spectrum; so what I may write in this post may differ from the experience of other people. It … Continue reading “What does it feel like to have Aspergers?”
For all of my posts about Asperger's Syndrome, I haven't really posted about what I struggle with, as a direct result of the condition. Because being positive matters, right?

People: … Continue reading Here’s how I struggle with Asperger’s Syndrome.
