Election Day Is Tomorrow…

…And we’re political, already! We missed you, Jon… Aww… I missed you guys, too. I just wanted to check in and give an update on where my head is at the moment. Spoiler Alert: This post might get a bit heavy… A number of… situations, I’ll call them… are affecting me recently. For starters… Okay, […]

Let’s Not Sugarcoat This…

Since before the inception of this site, even before I was approached by the Kinney Center in 2011 to start what eventually became The Aspie Epilogue, I have spent almost all of my time trying to shatter the ASD mythos, from which, all negative stereotypes are born. If you’re a seasoned veteran of The Aspie Dialogues, you’d […]

Negativity and How to Handle It Appropriately

Last week, I digressed for a moment to pay tribute to a personal source of inspiration for me. However, there was a snippet in there about negative emotions and the importance of letting them out. LET ME BE CLEAR ABOUT THIS! There are right ways to do so, and wrong ways to do so! So, […]

Perhaps a friend just announced a […]

My goodness, it’s been a long while since I last updated the blog with any substantial… well, updates (redundancy be damned). The biggest update would have to be that I am a fully accepted graduate student now. No more of that silly provisional status. My current GPA is a whopping 3.56 in grad school. I […]

An Appeal to Human Intelligence and Respect

I thought in light of recent news coverage reports, I should jump in and offer my deepest condolences to those affected by the shooting that occurred on Friday, December 14, 2012.  For far too long, incidents like this have been occurring across America.  It seems that the only detail the mass media can agree upon […]

Major Update Coming Soon

Hey, guys!  I know I’ve been gone for a while.  I have something really exciting to post about, but I’m waiting for some more concrete details to come through first.  I’ll give you a hint: It was briefly mentioned in my last post a month ago. To those who figure out what I’m talking about, […]
