Blog:Yes, That Too- “Speaking” to academia #ASDay

I wear many metaphorical hats. I’m a teacher. I’m a published poet. I’m a disability studies scholar, affiliated with a university but not for disability studies. I’m a graduate student in neuroscience. I’m an Autistic advocate, and not only a self-advocate (advocating for myself is often harder than the general stuff.) I’m a blogger.

Always, I am all of these things (and a bunch of other things). Sometimes, I get the opportunity to combine them. I’ve

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Life After Integrating.

How can I explain to you what it is like after integration in a way that you will understand?

It is being alone in my head but being totally ok with that. It is a quiet solitude of no background noise, no conversations except with myself. No voices constantly giving me advice. Which is a little scary as I now have no go-to person but I can deal with that.

It is feeling anger, hurt,

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- Wednesday ~ Quote Of The Week/Day…With a life story.

For those of you who may not know, actually I don’t think any of my readers or followers know this about me as I never recall talking about it, but I am a smoker. I’m not proud of it and that is probably one of the reasons why I don’t ever mention it, but hopefully not for much longer.

I started when I was 15 or 16 in high school around the same time I

Blog:Pharaohs World!- The lonely path

I see.

I see everything. 

The lies, the spies, what hides behind.

Neither left nor right. 

I see. 

I watch in dismay. I watch in fear. I see and hear the vitriol. The unabashed and unashamed hate. 

The spewing bile. 

Of the unreasoned. 

I see. 

And I hear. 

I hear the lamentations. The anguish. The impassioned cries and yet..

Underneath. 

Without thought nor reason, hurled forth like avenging angels..

They brook no argument. 

They are

Focus, by Unabashed Autist

M. won’t let me clean his apartment after he gets all his stuff out.  I’ve never lost a deposit in my life.  It’s pride…  I should probably work on that, but in the meantime, I’m a cleaning ninja.  I came by my skill in the Army, where I was given ample practice.  Heh.  M. said it would be weird to have his girlfriend clean his apartment.  Evolved is so sexy.  😍

Blog:The Other Side- Face it! #prosopagnosia #autism.

I’ll put it out there – I’ve had a very challenging time of it recently.

It’s a funny thing finding out you’re autistic late in life. I still sometimes wake up in surprise at my ‘newfound’ situation – and lately find myself astonished at some random moment in my day when my autism is revealed to me as such.

I thought these ‘quirks’ were just me – and they are. But they are also autism.

Blog:The Silent Wave- The Veil [autistic poetry]

(My favorite day of the year is Samhain/Halloween, and my favorite place is an open road, especially somewhere in the western half of Texas.  Rarely do those two elements come together, except maybe in pieces like this… 😉  The carefree spirit behind this one may not be readily evident, so to get an idea for it, you’ll probably want to watch this (static image) video of one of my favorite songs “Misa Gringa” by alterna-twang/goth-Americana

My first movie.  (I know it wasn’t necessary to state this after allowing you to view it.  Humor me.)  I feel so naked, letting you see my happy place.  The lights are dimmable, and each dot you see is an individual (RGB) light I can control individually with my phone via Bluetooth.   Or I can make it all one color.

I used channels to diffuse and mount two 16.4′ strips.  I’ll provide

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “Well, you gotta wean.”

This weekend has flown by.  M. is home.  Yay.  I’m running behind on my chores and refuse to sleep until I’m done folding my laundry.  I haven’t told him about the pushing incident, yet.  I’m saving it for later.  I installed my rainbow lights in my home office.  I love it.  I’ll try and figure out how to do a video so I can show you.  I’ll provide links so you can copy.

Blog:The Aspie Teacher- The Invisible Torturer

Blog:The Aspie Teacher- The Invisible Torturer

Anxiety, why do you torture me so?

The shaking,

The heavy breathing of panic, 

The buzzing in my brain that exercise doesn’t subdue,

The pounding stims that have started up,

The flicking fingers that will not still,

Anxiety, just stop!!

What is behind all this anguish?

I want to escape, but escape from what?

My senses are heightened for why I do not know.

My feet and legs want to run, and run, and run.  

But

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- My Sunday Songs + I'm home!!!

Both these performances brought tears to my eyes for their own special reasons. So I felt they were worthy to be shared today. ^.^

Hallelujah ~ Performed by Toni Cornell and One Republic

This performance was performed beautifully and Chris Cornell’s daughter is so stunning and so is her voice. However how numb and sad she looked and she literally looked like she didn’t want to be there but did it in memory

Blog:Life Asper Margo- 'Til Dreams Do Us Part

I believe the mind is a powerful thing; it’s what makes us understand our place in the universe, and travel across it, physically and spiritually. By now, you’re either intrigued or you’re slowly shaking your head sideways from behind your screen thinking I’m drinking some namaste koolaid. Either way, I’m going to follow through with my decision to maintain my writing’s integrity by letting it be a true reflection of my beliefs and myself. I

Blog:Life with Aspergers- It takes two, two sides to every story (Relationships and Aspergers)

It seems strange to say it but I’d never heard of Katy Perry until she hit the headlines for dressing “inappropriately” on Sesame Street back in 2010. Even then it was at least a couple of years before I listened to her music properly. Apart from her music, which I now love, I’ve also got another reason to really like her as an artist. She’s always defending those who are different and in 2012, she did

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Chapter 2

The pain is starting to deaden and even though it flairs up at moments I know I will survive. But I will never be the same, and I doubt I will ever love anyone as much or show them as much of my soul.

You can say to me all you want that just because I wasn’t his special that I will be someones special out there. But I didn’t want to be someone else’s special,

Blog:The Other Side- Cultural identity in the face of political suppression – a longer view of Spanish exile: thoughts on #Catalonia.

I’m revisiting my work from August 2017 in light of the Catalan question. 

Lately I feel muzzled. I’m taking a crash course in some of the issues surrounding the current turbulence in Spain, but my brain won’t make the stretch required and I don’t know how to talk about it. Yet, it’s become my job to respond with my art practice, I’m just taking my time getting there.

The debate (such as it is writ on

Hi love can you come over at one ?. It’s just that we have to nip out. 

Yes, we will be there at one. 

Nipping out.

I’m miss M.  I’m not used to missing people who are alive.  I’d like to list these feelings on eBay.  They’re freaking me out.  Cheaper than free.  Heh.  It snowed briefly, this morning.  I set my thermostat at 68° F, and the heat is kicking in every few hours.  I had an incredible run, sorta.  I should have thought it through more thoroughly before I left, but the first half was so fun.  It’s ridic

So as I said earlier today I had an aura and it freaked me out.  That kinda petered out over the day.  But now I am at bedtime terrified of my fingers tingling, which they are cause if you think of nothing but your fingers tingling you can totally make that happen.  So I am afraid to sleep.

I started this blog to talk about Aspergers, but most days, most days that doesn’t matter.  Because
