AAM – Day 20 (Communication)

Communication is the most slippery of topics in the autistic space. That is because we clearly would communicate differently if we could. So instead of our own communication, we end up needing to emulate the vagueness of a neuro-typical communication. Where introverts may be disgusted … Continue readingAAM – Day 20 (Communication)

AAM – Day 19 (I hate it when…)

I hate it when people “listen” to me but don’t actually listen to me. While growing up, it would be a common occurrence in my house to be in a “discussion” of sorts with my parents because we didn’t see eye-to-eye on something I did … Continue readingAAM – Day 19 (I hate it when…)

AAM – Day 18 (Someday…)

It’s easy to say someday… Someday, I will be rich. Someday, I will have my debts paid off. Someday, I will have the job I always wanted. Someday, I will have that amazing car. Someday… Someday needs to be today for all of your personal … Continue readingAAM – Day 18 (Someday…)

AAM – Day 16 (Work/School)

Last time I went through being in school, the entire graduate program was 70% working in a group that you stayed with the entire program. That helped so much. They are the reason I finished, not to mention with a solid grade. Work is another … Continue readingAAM – Day 16 (Work/School)

AAM – Day 15 (Everyone should know…)

The Queen of Soul got this one right. What should everyone know? R-E-S-P-E-C-T! As an autistic person, I just want to have the same respect shown as anyone else. I just want to be included in what everyone else is. I want to know you’re … Continue readingAAM – Day 15 (Everyone should know…)

But there are two fathers out there that are trying to make the world better for their autistic children, and are helping out other autistic people as well. One is a car … Continue readingAAM – Day 9 (Favorite Autistic-owned Business)

AAM – Day 8 (Favorite Autistic Blog)

My favorite autistic blog… you mean besides myself? LOL Probably the one blog I return to every time is that of the Neurodivergent Rebel. She’s really the first person I came across in the #ActuallyAutistic Twitter community, so her material is centering. Plus, she’s often … Continue readingAAM – Day 8 (Favorite Autistic Blog)

AAM – Day 7 (The Autistic Community)

(Here I am playing catch-up again. But at least it was because I don’t get online much on the weekends.) Talking about the autistic community is an interesting conundrum. No matter the subject matter, the concept of community exists mainly for adults. It is not … Continue readingAAM – Day 7 (The Autistic Community)

AAM – Day 2 (What I love about being autistic is…)

So I stumbled across this blog challenge a few days late. Yes, I am playing catch-up… What I love about being autistic is I now have an explanation for my uniqueness and quirkiness. I have always been the weird person in the room. I’ve been … Continue readingAAM – Day 2 (What I love about being autistic is…)

AAM – Day 1 (Intro)

Hi. I’m known around these haunts as The Thinker. I go by the name Michael Mordrid. It doesn’t mean that’s really my name. What it does mean is that my real life world doesn’t understand my thought process well enough to accept me unfiltered. So … Continue readingAAM – Day 1 (Intro)
