#DSFWeeklyRewind: Warning Signs

Well hello there Rewinders! If you were here with us last week, you’ll know that I was busy fixating on a boy. And yes, definitely a boy, age notwithstanding. The thing is that I was fixating because he changed his behavior in a drastic way, and I didn’t understand. I wanted clarification of what I had done to cause such a drastic reaction in the first place, but I’m not worried about it… not the way I think he might be still.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Christmas is so close!!

Good afternoon Weekly Rewind folks! I’m running a little late this weekend, but I’m here to rewind this week for you. For those of you who wished my week this week would be better, thank you for the sentiment, although I’m not sure if it was better.

It was kind of a toss up, with half the week being frustrating and the other half being relatively nice.

Which is an odd thing to say, given that the “nice” part of my week included starting my monthly…

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Need a break.

A few days ago I posted about an incident that had me dwelling pondering on my autism. The rest of this week could easily have been another example of things that on some level help to remind me that I’m not actually abnormal… well, I am abnormal, but only because I’m not neurotypical. But I’m not abnormal aside from my well defined abnormality.

It’s confusing, I know.

I feel like this week’s DSF Rewind should be some variation of Alice in Wonderland, though, perhaps not the Johnny Depp version.

Best Laid Plans…

There are times when something happens that makes me question all sorts of things… usually (especially since I got my official Asperger’s diagnosis) about whether or not that diagnosis was correct. It’s strange to go one’s whole life thinking you were “normal,” but knowing inside of you that you weren’t quite that, but not knowing how to explain it to anyone.

And on snowy days like today, when things are not entirely the way they are supposed to be, it leaves me feeling more than a little introspective.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.

Happy Halloween weekend my lovely people! Since the Weekly Coffee Share seems to have gone the way of the dodo, I appreciate that Tara over at Daisy Smiley Face has picked up the slack and made a new linkup for us to compare our weekly tales of wonder or woe.

While the Coffee Share was about sharing over coffee, I get the impression that this one has a bit of a musical score to it (hence the cassette tape… which is a way people used to listen to music, for all you young ones). Given that, my musical score today is coming from Jimi Hendrix.  Continue reading “#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.”
