  1. I tried stimming: Tangle toys

    As I am typing this, I am trying to manage fidgeting with my tangle at the same time. If you have read my first post on this topic I tried stimming: Spinning rings, you probably know that this is not the first time I am trying to find a suitable stim toy for myself. You might also not be very hopeful that a tangle works for me, considering that a spinning ring did not do anything for me. But this seems to be different. I found out about Tangle creations online while I was researching...
  2. I yearn for those days

    I yearn for those days of my teen years. 2016 was a turning point. I had friends I could count on. It all fell apart in an instance. I miss that girl I would always talk to every day. The only person I ever truly fell in love with. Only she never felt the same. We stayed friends until it all fell apart. I had plenty of friends from those days. Friends from different parts of cliques. There was Skylar, Lane, and Connor who all decided to cut me off a year after high school. There was...
  3. Feast of Our Lady of the Snows and the Summertime of the Faith

    August 5th is the Feast of Our Lady of the Snows, it's also the Feast of Blessed Frederick Jansoone up here in Canada, but I don't know enough about him yet to talk about him. The Feast commemorates a Marian Miracle that occurred during the Pontificate of Pope Liberius; a Roman Patrician named John was without heir and so decided along with his wife, that they would donate their wealth in a way that would honour Our Lady. The two prayed to Our Lady, that She may show them how She would like...

  5. It's my Birthday

    My forum experiences
  6. Incoherent Rambling

    So i recently started a new chinese drama about an eccentric chinese opera performer and a wealthy businessman who becomes his supporter and his best friend/soulmate ahahah. I really love it a lot so far and it made me recognize a pattern in the fictional works i consume and love: Two characters whose lives are completely devoted to a form of art and their lives and relationship becomes intertwined with it. This can be music, dancing, ballet, anything really. Just the passion and the...

  8. Washing Laundry During the Coin Shortage

    For those of you who rely on coin-op laundry during the coin shortage, and can't get quarters, I'm going to teach you one of the most efficient and powerful ways to wash clothes in the bathtub with the least effort. Fill the tub a little under 1/4 of the way up with dirty clothes. I find this equals about six to eight outfits plus all undergarments. Add detergent evenly over the top. If you like you can add fabric softener to make the clothes smell good. You don't want to overdo it with...
  9. I hate my job

    Well i actually don't but i hate being a office lawyer and earning slightly higher than minimum wage after working my ass off all my life. I want to earn more. I don't want to depend on my parents for everything. My parents were still paying my bills even when i was working because there was no way i would have been able to survive on my own in my own house. If you don't start your own business (if you are not a super socially able and charismatic nt who is also capable enough to start their...
  10. Stopping meltdowns

    Yesterday was a subpar day in almost every sense of the word for autistic me. Days on which I change outfits more than once before leaving the house always end up like this (I often do this when my routine is messed up). I forgot something important to give to a friend I met up with, my shoes hurt, I was (unjustifiably) yelled at by a lady on the subway. I arrived first at a restaurant I had never been to before, had to enter the place and ask for the table that was reserved under not my...

    (All measurements in British Imperial) Pastry • 3oz Self-Raising Flour • 3oz Wholemeal Bread Flour • 3oz Butter > crumble together with your fingers until it’s an even consistency (I use room temperature butter: totally wrong according to every book/body... but it’s easier, and has no negative consequences) • Water > combine with fingers to make an only just not sticky dough (this is the hard part, I have a tumbler of water and add a generous dash at a time: if it gets actually sticky, add...
  12. The Thief and the Queen, Chapter 1: There is a Thief (Rough Draft) (Part 2)

    Chapter 1 There is a Thief (Continued) “Your Majesty, my Lady!” Another officer entered the tent, this one was accompanied a group of soldiers and a man they had captured, he had long dark messy hair, messy facial hair, and a rough, muscular build; it was Haroman. “Speak officer!” Answered Queen Andromé, again not bothering with formalities. “We caught this thief in one of our arsenal tents. We searched through his belongings and found two items we think you should take a look.” “Show...
  13. The Thief and the Queen, Chapter 1: There is a Thief (Rough Draft) (Part 1)

    Chapter 1 There is a Thief Haroman saw many orange glows in the direction of the capital city of Háloma. He was traveling southeast pass the capital. What an unusual night this is! He thought to himself. Is the capital really on fire!?! Haroman turned and headed straight east towards Háloma. He passed through the farmlands and orchards of the outer rural area, it was September and the crops were ready for harvesting. The thought of stealing some of the food crossed Haroman’s mind. He was...
