Day to Day Life

  1. About other people

    I have learned many lessons while travelling. I don’t want to turn this blog into a sanctimonious, holier-than-thou collection of lectures by someone who thinks they know better then you, because I don’t, so I won’t. But, I just wanted to make a little note of what I have learned about People. I spell People with a capital ‘P’ because they are my greatest fear, of course. I never ‘got’ them, those People who have minds and bodies and lives and thoughts different to mine. I never got how they...
  2. Stepping out of the comfort zone..

    Hello! Welcome to my backpacking blog! Blogging about my travels is soemthing i have thought about doing for a while, and now I don’t know where to begin! So I’ll start at the beginning. Just after Christmas last year, I suddenly decided I wanted to travel. Having “lost” my teenage years to mental illness, I felt like I really wanted to properly experience life again. I wanted to see the world, and experience its wonders. So, I found a job in Victoria, Australia and six months later found...
  3. As a Student Game Dev, I'll Never Make Games For ANY Consoles.

    [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 semester. However, when my first game comes out, it won't be on consoles at all. Why should I develop for consoles when a ton of gamers are already using Windows PCs, Linux devices, and Macs? I Also,...
  4. Moving In

    Hi guys, I've just moved into my uni room. I'm fairly impressed with everything here. I've got my own bathroom and will be sharing a kitchen with 5 other people. The good bits: Ensuite Already feels like home It's my own little private/happy place The university let me move in two days before everyone else to get used to it before my residence is flooded by 200 students The bad bits: It's 2.3 miles from campus and involves a walk up a big hill if I walk in Otherwise, I'll have to take a...
  5. Intro Post

    just an intro to what the blog will be about
  6. Quick intro

    Just a quick one. Hopefully, this blog is going to focus on my experience with my course and the exciting things I learn. In time, it may evolve into something completely different; like how I manage to survive while living away from home or just my experience on the incredible city that is Bristol. I hope to talk about things like: using a library how to focus for long periods of time good studying techniques reasonable adjustments your university should give to you good independent...
  7. weight

    Sometimes, I'm so overwhelmed that I shut down. The words don't want to come, and everything feels overstimulating, and all I feel like I can do is space out. No thoughts really. Not much feelings either, or so it would seem to an outsider. Really though, it's like the volume is turned to a deafening roar inside my head, and I lie still to try to let myself settle underneath it. It's like that time when I fell off an inner tube while floating on the river. I flopped off backwards on a mini...
  8. Mutant and proud, I mean, aspie and proud

    I know I come out as an easy going person, or, more accurately, as a push-over. Nothing could be farther from the truth. When I feel that someone is trying to dominate me, manipulate me, or plain simply, doesn’t respect my boundaries, I walk away. Plain and simple. When that situation used to ocurred in the past, I used to argue with the person so she could understand why I was saying no to something. They would either try to convince me and I would cave in to keep “peace”, or I would end...
  9. Hello

    Dear Reader, The blog here is my dream and my hope that with your help i can use my abilities to do my part in the fight for our acceptance. Because threw all my dangers toils and snares the thing that held me back when darkness was at its darkest was thought of one day being able to do my part so that where i had it hard you may have it easier, where i found rejection you may have acceptance and where i had hate you may find love. These where the thoughts that held me back from the cliff...
  10. My very own corner of peace and love

    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 continue pijama parties with my boyfriend (as he calls them) when the kids spend the weekend away with their dad. I don't have a room now, but I love my little minimal corner of love and peace. It's...
  11. Test Flight

    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.
  12. Gossip : The social unit of exchange : The Gleme

    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 disaster. In order to find out whether we can tell someone the truth,we have to try and find out if we can trust them. We have to use gossip - These individual bits of information ,are exchanged between...
  13. When the Rain Comes

    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 open-ended. I've never been good at answering open-ended questions about myself. I find it almost impossible to list my favorites of pretty much anything. Favorite movies? No clue. Favorite songs? Not the...
