Even though I am home, and have been home, I still took about two weeks to adjust to actually being home. I literally felt like I was stuck in Oklahoma, and I was being suggested things I should wear even after getting back home—wearing sweats out to lunch, when the weather is 90 degrees Fahrenheit, for example.
I bought seven bucks’ worth of candy, was only able to actually consume about five bucks’ worth safely, though I just went ahead and finished one package of gummy bears I had opened… seriously, who puts coconut oil in gummy bears? Lesson learned: Never let your guard down, even for foods that don’t normally contain severe allergens.
I was reminded of my Aspieness when the lady behind me in line at the Dollar Tree said something about me going to the movies, and I just smiled in response. I didn’t know how to reply, and I also didn’t get the point of her comment.
I’m also an official expo blogger/member of the press for the GFAF Expo in Dallas again this year. I’m super excited. I wrote a post on Liz and Code regarding how to prepare for expos, and I think I might post it here in the event that it helps someone… because nobody else seems to really explain what an exposition is, and as an Aspie, I like to know details about things before I go—I favor plans and despise surprises.
- I don’t follow the Copyblogger’s blog, but I like this chick’s recap/notes from Copyblogger’s Authority 2015 conference.[1. Note: I don’t follow Copyblogger at all, because I don’t believe it is Aspie-friendly, feel the blog is treated like it is the blog law, and cannot stand the grammar/punctuation/etc., among other things. I feel like their advice is a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter approach, and I dislike it.]
- Using an expired EpiPen is better than using no EpiPen at all.
- Explore the horrendous thing that is sensory overload with Auti-sim; use your arrow keys to navigate and your mouse to look around. Note: It is a nightmare.
…I actually had a boring month and didn’t read a ton of stuff. /slacker
I’ll get back to reading blogs soon.<3
