IT'S HUG TIME, TIME FOR HUGS. Ran, two for you. Andi? FOUR for you, Andi Grrl. You go, Andi Grrl! And uh... Darth Vader, do we have a Darth Vader here? *distant voice from the back* It's DeeVee! Oh DeeVee, here you go, one for you... And none for Gretchen Wieners, bye. Minor edit because I didn't know Ran's name but now I do! Fixed. -Nik
Because it's a beautiful album and it took me years to realize it. Hey you! out there on the road Always doing what you're told, can you help me Hey you! out there beyond the wall Breaking bottles in the hall, can you help me Hey you! don't tell me there's no hope at all Together we stand, divided we fall. -Nik
Sup, BZP. /o/ I thought nostalgically of you today, so I thought I would stop by to say hello. I hope you've taken advantage of your summers! (: We're having issues at home - the breadwinner had to resign earlier this summer. We are drifting in the land of unemployment and uncertainty and are looking at moving. It really is a bunch of question marks. But we will make it through okay. Also, for those that knew my sister - her one-year anniversary was a couple days ago. She's all moved out a
I am never going to get used to writing that. OTL But uh, okay, since I know there are other aspies wandering around the blogs: Are you able to feel when you're getting overstimulated? And what do you do to get yourself calmed down again? I get very, very irritable and upset, kind of like the feeling you get if someone pokes you with a stick and doesn't listen when you tell them to stop. I just haven't found good ways to get myself back to a calm state. So I'd like to hear what other people
So I have been bedridden for like three days now because of medicine complications. And then I get this card dropped into my lap this afternoon. Naturally in my drug-induced-state I completely forget to look at the return address and just open it. It's got lots and lots of glitter and a lacy dove with big googley eyes on it. First thought: "Oh dear god it's gotta be from HH and Janus" (spoilers: I was right) A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, guys. \o\ \o/ /o/ I got Prof
The world is not beautiful, but that in itself leads to its own sort of beauty. Humans are far from perfect and shall always do as humans do, but in their own ways to deny, defy, or even reach for their own perfection, they shine as the phenomenal creatures they really are. To embrace both strengths and faults as just things that are. I think that's a pretty beautiful thing. Life has been difficult right now. It hurts. It's hard. One might say it's been ugly from time to time. But you kn
Celebrating my holiday with a diagnosis of Asperger's and General Anxiety Disorder. I start social therapy on Monday. But I am just thankful to have a name for things. Not gonna lie. Happy Thanksgiving, BZP. Hope you find something to be thankful for, too. <3 -Nik
Two blog entries in a month? Dear god. SOMEONE CALL THE COPS But anyways. So this time next week I will apparently (hopefully) have a diagnosis of either Asperger's syndrome or PDD-NOS (atypical autism) along with an anxiety disorder that I can never catch the proper name of. This has been 3 and a half months of doctor visits and like years of awkward and mistakes and horribleness in the making and I am still not sure how to feel about it. I mean, being autistic on any level doesn't chan
It is currently my 22nd birthday. We have a president and I am so okay with that. Maryland did some lovely things. I finally have a bass guitar in my hands for the first time in almost 2 years, Ibanez left-handed 3/4, and I am playing Day Tripper like it was only yesterday. Life is pretty okay right now, guys. <3 -Nik
We're just getting the furthest tendrils of it here at home. Lots of wind - some of the gusts are already knocking power out and ripping shingles off of roofs. But it's not horrible. There's lots of family in Point Pleasant and Atlantic City (some of which we haven't had contact with) so we're glued to the phones and the weather reports especially with the eye of the storm over that part of NJ right now. So it is basically a super fun day today. East Coast members: bunker down and stay safe,
Nik's summer, in condensed form: Lots of sleep Lots of rainbow cupcakes Lots of playing of the piano Got a new dog! Chocolate lab - he's a sweetie. There was a wedding in there somewhere as well. My sister looked gorgeous and she's very happy with her new husband. Had to drop my last semester of college, but I'm okay with that. My credits aren't going anywhere. Got screened for GAD and high-functioning Asperger's. And everyone proceeded to wonder why we didn't do this like 5 years ago. Thi
Some little scout must have found something yummy in our kitchen, because we now have hundreds of ants swarming through all of our front windows both upstairs and downstairs.
They're kinda cool to watch, though~ I can't really decide whether to be disgusted or just curious... XD
Nice weather + How to Train Your Dragon + girl scout cookies + drawing + learning a new game + making new friends at my new job + my brother making me laugh a lot + my kitty = a good kind of night.
Hopefully some decent sleep will actually happen tonight (I haven't had a restful night's sleep in months). That would make it an even better kind of night. ^.^
Very tired, very sick, typing out lots and lots and LOTS of PMs (to the senders: please stop sending them... I'm getting to them as fast as I can and you all have gotten your point across >.<), have to plan out a whole bunch of projects, unpack my clothes and wash the smell of cigarette smoke out of them (our neighbor on vacation smoked a bajillion boxes a day and it came up through the vents), work on forms for school, dig out some medical equipment and maybe take a nap.
I have come to the conclusion that working on something at 2 a.m., no matter how important that something is, does nothing but wither out the back portions of your brain. Or at least your eye sockets. Then you wake up the next morning and look at what you did and you see all the mistakes or typos and hypothetically facepalm yourself a million times.
At least that's what happens to me...? I make lots of mistakes in the earl morning. >.<
Time for sleep, yes~
Kitty and I wave goodnig
Back from my vacation. It's freezing cold and I'm really really sick, but I'm alive at least. =v=
To the bajillion people that sent me various PMs while I was gone... yes I've read them all, I owe people apologies and explanations... I'll get back to you ASAP.
Getting ready to go to New York for the first time! x3
I'M SO EXCITED. I wanna go see the giant ToysRUs. ;v;
We're leaving tomorrow, only gonna be in NY for a few days and staying in another state the rest of the time to see family.
Feeling a little sick, so hopefully I'll feel better as the week goes on. ^.^
So those art projects? They were for an artist position on a Pokemon site!
Even though I didn't do as well as I wanted, apparently I did good enough.
CAUSE I GOT THE JOB YES YES YES!
:happydance: :happydance: :happydance:
I'm so happy... ;v;
So so so I FINALLY had the time to finish watching the first season of Code Geass.
I love this show very much (it's such a strong story), but the last five episodes made me cry, and then there are plot twists and aaaaaaaaaah!
ARG I have to go find the second season somewhere. XDDD
Hi guys! *scribble scribble*
Frantically trying to finish a few art projects that are due tomorrow evening on top of one that just got destroyed in the mail on the way to its owner. *scribble*
But I've got oreos and milk. *nomnomnom*
So the frantic just got a little less frantic and a little more sweet. ^.^
I'll post the pictures if I live to tell the tale. I've got so much to get done!
The house smells like roast and bread and cheese potatoes.
It might be stressful and crazy and emotionally exhausting here otherwise, but I like it when the house smells of good food. ^^ I'll take endorphins when I can, even if they're coming from good food smells. XD;
