If You Have a Rainforest Mind, You’ve Got Hopepunk This brought tears to my eyes. About two, maybe three years ago, there was a movie I went to see in the theater… Zootopia was the name… and the entire movie was about social justice. Somewhere in the middle of the film, it suddenly bopped me on...
Now that I'm out of that shelter, I am scrambling like crazy to get my business back into full swing again, so I don't have to go back into ANOTHER shelter. I can't seem to be very productive in a herded community living environment. Right now, I am QUITE happy in a friendly, cheap hotel...

Well apart from this morning when the carer didn't turn up till gone 11 because they were under the mistaken impression that Mum had cancelled, wrong! She would've told me, anyway they gave me a shave when they finally turned up, even though it was nearly lunch time and too late to have a bath...
Topic. Applied online via a link on an email I got from an employment website, I kind of know where the place is in s4, somewhere between Page Hall and Attercliffe. The money's not bad for part time work, from about £9 to £14, but to earn 14 quid an hour means realistically I can only work...

So I was on a bit of a mission this afternoon in Town, had to collect something from the central Post Office which I ordered on eBay last week, and then collect a battery charger from Argos which I ordered yesterday, and I also wanted to call in CEX and see if I could trade in 3 games towards a...
So I had a bid going on eBay for £32 for Soul Calibur 6 on Xbox, I was winning right up to literally 5 seconds left of the bid, eh? Annoying when people wait till literally the last second to outbid me! In better news, I have a trial day booked volunteering at the new Sue Ryder Charity shop on...

Christmas temp work part time at Jessop's Camera shop in Meadowhall, and part time work at a local Petrol Station (it says the post code for it is s3, I doubt I'd get much more local!). Indeed is the best website ever (apart from this one of course! :D)

With Three. Not too shabby, £17 a month for "All You Can Eat" minutes and texts and 30 Gig data. Only thing is I've been with Three before and I don't think they have UK call centres, but hopefully I won't have to ring them until about this time next year to give 30 days notice if need be...

In New Zealand, students get 2 weeks off every 10 or 11 weeks. Right now it's around 1 PM on Friday, the 12th of October, AKA the third to last day of the 2 week holiday. I found myself missing school for all of the holidays, which is unusual to say the least. I don't dislike school. My teachers...
Topic. Applied on their website for "ambient" (whatever that is?) customer service work at the Chaucer Road store, bit awkward to get to but I know where it is, it's near where I do my Digital Arts course on Thursday mornings. Don't worry, I won't disclose my opinion that Parson Cross is full...

I had an appointment yesterday with the autism specialist and he was asking me questions. What do I like to do? What have I ever saved money for? If I could have any job I wanted, what would it be? Etc. I noticed that most of my answers pointed west. (A play on words there). I enjoy...

Today, I have a mission! ... and after gearing up in a hat, hoodie and sunglasses, I feel just safe enough to step out that door. I walk quickly. I know I have 2 crosswalks, a bus ride and 6 more busy street crossings between here and my appointment downtown. The bus is very loud and bumpy. I...
[Note: When I say PC, I am talking about any device that is a laptop or desktop running any given operating system, not just Windows devices.] I'm studying to become a game dev, and I am currently taking a 3D modeling class in highschool, and I'll begin my second year of a game design class next...

Writing in anonymity has become a way to take care of myself. Every time I type a word, it's like combing my hair, or brushing my teeth. Sometimes it's like taking a hot bath for my soul, which is good since I don't have a bathtub. I decided to invest in a full size mattress for myself, so I can...
Maybe it will work, maybe it won't, but I just had to try it for testing purposes. Apparently, this blog required 39 more character in order for it to post, so this was added just to fill the quota.

Ever told anyone the truth ? Was it the mathematical truth, your personal truth or the social truth? Ever regretted it? You have to know someone well before you tell them the truth. A double edged sword. It can cause and start a war. It can destroy friendships and.... It can prevent...

It's never made sense to me why the hardest question for me to answer has always been "Who am I?" You'd think that would be quite a simple thing, but I've found it to be incredibly difficult, complex, confusing and frustrating to even attempt to answer. Perhaps it's because the question is...
Waking in the middle of the night is confusing for me. Things that seem so certain during the daylight hours feel twisted and shadowed. Sometimes even the most simple and good things seem darkened and scary at nighttime. I don't like it. I guess the easy answer seems to be to stay in bed and...

If you had asked me a year ago if I would be in a healthy, committed relationship with someone who both loves and supports me by today's date, my answer would've been a loud no. It's been a long time coming. It still feels a bit like I've made all of this happiness up, like I am still sitting on...
