Happy (Belated) Autism Awareness Month 2013!

Awesome! I know, right?

I know, I know…

I stink at blogging. I’ve already learned that lesson. I really wanted to get this up a month and a half ago, but various projects (and school) came up, and well, I don’t have much else for an excuse. I figured I’d make it up to you with this post then go from there.

Late as this post is, I wanted to share with you all how I spent my Autism Awareness Month (April). Last year, I introduced the Puzzle Pride Campaign and the Puzzle Man. How could I possibly have followed up such an amazing show for this year (even if I wanted to do it a month and a half ago)?

I convinced my parents to light up the house blue this April (last month… oopsy-daisy :P)! Take a look for yourselves:

Awesome! I know, right?

But that’s not all I did:

Just in case my neighbors were curious.

It’s always great to see Puzzle Man in action. Look at him! He’s so happy to be so loved!

Here’s where I digress for a bit:

My sister has Sjögren’s Syndrome. You can read all about it at her page on the blogroll. You may remember her as the Puzzle Pride Award recipient from last year (2012).  As it turns out, Sjögren’s Awareness Month is also celebrated in April. So that she didn’t feel left out…

Leave it to Jenny to steal the thunder from my blogpost...

Hmm… I appeared to be at home when this was taken… *Digression!* Ahem, so yes… It was also Sjögren’s Awareness Month in April, as well.

So, who got the much coveted Puzzle Pride Award *Angelic Chorus Singing*?

Dr. Michelle Rowe of the Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support at St. Joseph’s University. You can read more about the decision on the Puzzle Pride Campaign page located on this very blog.

So, there you have it! Up to date (or last month to be nitpicky) on the Aspie Epilogue. I have shown my true colors at last (well, at least one shade of them, anyway)! Huzzah!

I’m going to make an effort to be more active from this point. NO PROMISES! I do have a tendency to forget to post, you know. Anyway, I have class in about an hour, so I will see you next time… Whenever that is.
