Blog:The Other Side- Happiness is the freedom to work on Christmas Day. #Autism

This has been my best Christmas, aside from the mythical year I turned 10 and Santa bought me a doll’s house. That year we had a white Christmas too, and somehow all of this became conflated in my mind as a magical happening – a moment so perfect that I probably wiped out all attendant blemishes through the convenience of so much mental photoshop.

It’s been my second ever autistic Christmas (second year as a

Merry Christmas Everyone! Or for anyone that doesn’t celebrate Christmas, Happy Belated Hanukah,  late Solstice, early Kwanza, and a Very Happy December 25th!

I think no matter what you celebrate, The 12 Days of Christmas carol is probably something that you’ve heard. The math has been done, and to purchase all 12 days of gifts would cost you almost $35,000!

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- MEME Monday (The last Xmas post)

Today being Christmas day, and we don’t practice any of the 12 days of Christmas or other similar traditions, this will be my last Xmas post. Woot we made it through the holidays!

I know I made a couple posts about my anxiety and feeling bad about not being home for Christmas…I thought I would share that my Christmas ending up being quite alright, and I am feeling much better now. Still missing my family

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- My Sunday Songs (A few Xmas songs with a short story)

This song I would like to share for all the children out there! As much as Christmas can be such a materialistic holiday there is something special about the excitement children get on Christmas morning or Christmas eve whatever your tradition may be. Christmas is still very much about the children’s spirits. This will be my first year away from my family, and different routines which naturally doesn’t do well for my anxiety or autism.

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- *Reblog* The UX of neuro-diversity

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- *Reblog* The UX of neuro-diversity

to aspie or not to aspie

While UI is all about user interface – the look and feel of a website or app – UX is about the logical flow, about user experience.

If we stick to the analogy of autism as a different operating system with its own unique pros and cons, like iOS vs. Linux, for example, then there’s no reason we can’t consider neuro-typicality and neuro-diversity from a UX perspective.

When you’re

Blog:The Secret Aspie- That Time of Year

I have been feeling a bit non-plussed recently at what to write about. My relationship with Rashid is continuing and getting deeper and more intimate every time we chat or meet. He makes me so happy and I have such a feeling of being loved completely which I have not felt for a very long time. It is like coming home, we both feel a sense of completeness like we are two halves of a

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- My Christmas Playlist

Here is a compilation of some of my favorite Christmas songs and songs I grew up listening to this time of year.

My parents always played Christmas albums and music weeks leading up to Christmas. It would play in the background while decorating the tree and the house, playing board games, Christmas Eve and of course Christmas morning. They had a huge collection of Christmas albums and that is where I got a lot of

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- Some nice gestures and another favorite Christmas song.

The hubby and I had a bunch of loose change that we wanted to get rid of and wanted some Timmies coffee this morning. We also stopped first to get a few sausage Mcmuffins at McDonald’s first. (I cheated my diet again, but oh well it’s the holidays and I haven’t had fast food in at least a month. lol) The guy at the drive-thru register originally read us the wrong price of $4.22, it

Blog:The Silent Wave- Video: A few themes in my Asperger's / Autism experience

I did it!  I’m a little late in getting the third video posted on YouTube, but I made it happen  🙂

This one runs a little longer, just over 13 minutes.  I did try to move pretty quickly through the material I wanted to share, though, so hopefully it remains interesting throughout.

I’m particularly pleased with myself for (finally) getting this done; I sandwiched it between the ending of an exceptionally busy workweek (which is

Blog:The Other Side- The unmasking #autism

A post in which I write about late autism diagnosis and masking. I speak only for myself (as ever). Some autistics are not able to mask, and others may not unmask in the ways I describe. 

I’m more than a little wary of making an analogy between the unmasking process in adult autism, and addiction. It’s not the same thing at all – and yet the demands to perform neurotypicality are both toxic and

Blog:Reports from a Resident Alien- All Those Quora Links

You might have noticed that I’ve been posting a lot of links to Quora lately. That’s where I’ve been doing most of my writing for the past couple of years. I even made the top writers list in 2017, which is pretty nifty.

I know that when people come to my blog, they want to read my writing. I’ve been neglecting the blog lately because I can’t really think of much to write; so I

Hi guys, how are all my lovely followers and readers?!

I would like to welcome you all to another Friday Q&A. However, this Friday will be different from my Favorite Friday Q&A theme as I will be doing a general Christmas Q&A and will not strictly relate to favorite questions.

Once upon a time, neither far away nor long ago, there was a little girl walking through the forest.

The little girl, whose hair was the same hue as Edam cheese, was known in the village as ‘Goldilocks’ because of her beautiful curls.

It was a mild morning and as Goldilocks skipped
