Woah. Kind of an amazing view on life.
I don’t think I can do any of these.
I could maybe do the Twisting Mountain one. The rest would probably break me into lego pieces.
when my dad was in college he had a friend who told a girl he’d take her on a date unlike any other she’d ever been on and so he took her to the supermarket to watch the lobsters fighting in the lobster tank
they’re married now
The Turkish company Pugedon has created a vending machine that’s dispensing help for both the environment and our furry friends.
this makes me so happy
Anxiety over patterns changing and about what new things have in store is a common theme of the autism spectrum. A lot of the friends I have made over the past couple of years regularly speak to each other over the internet asking for advice on how to prepare for something they don’t already have…
Some of you know that I am an ASAN chapter leader, but did you also know that I’m involved with an awesome organization that represents all disabled students in the U.S. who are at a vocational school, college, university, or other center of higher education? The president of our group is a veteran, so don’t think we are leaving you out if you became disabled for our country.
We do not have 501c3 status as of yet, but we are working on that as we also fight the good fight.
If you would like more information, feel free to contact me. Our websites are very… dated, so please don’t judge us based on them. :D
just remembered the psychology offices I go to has a comic book they write and publish about a young boy who is autistic and a superhero. it’s kinda silly and definitely for younger kids but hey, it’s about an autistic superhero, from his perspective, written for autistic kids!
it’s written by the doctors but they do regular creative collaboration and surveys with groups of autistic kids. and during their first presentation apparently one of the boys raised his hand and said “did you follow me around all day?” XD so, it all sounds good to me!
I’ve only ever read a little bit of it but I think next time I’m there I’ll pick up an issue and read through the whole thing. now it would just be good if they wrote one about a young girl!

There seems to be a lack of things written about intellectual/developmental disabilities (frankly, all sorts of disabilities, but I need to start somewhere less broad than all disabilities) in the Southeast. I would like assist in filling the gap. One person cannot fix the entire gap, but I can fill a bit of it.
I do not know how long (page-length) this project will be, nor how long it will take. It may take years (I am already writing so many things, oops).
If you are developmentally disabled or have an intellectual disability and live in the Southeast, have lived in the Southeast for any extended period of time (I’d say at least more than a year), or were raised in the Southeast, I’d love to hear any comments, insights, and/or experiences you have had in the South. Not all your comments will make it into this project. I suspect that there will be far too many for me to include all of them.
While I am autistic, I would rather not write an entire essay-thing on being disabled in the Southeast based solely on my experiences; autism is but one disability and I have only lived in the state of Georgia (not even outside of the metropolitan Atlanta area, actually).
At some point, I want to publish this (professionally). I don’t have to have your name, just the disability and your experiences. If you do reveal your name, it will be out there, so consider carefully. Also consider the implications of you are giving me something already written elsewhere that can be linked to you.
You can email me at email@example.com. If you need another means of communication, please send me an ask. I’m awful on phones, but I can do my best, for instance.
