Bonus Ep. 29 - Independence Day History & SILENT Fireworks (they exist!) Well, it's that time of year again. Another year has come and gone to this particular noisy and awful month (sound-wise at least). Today I talk a bit about the history of Independence day and learned that silent fireworks actually do exist and they're just as expensive as the regular loud ones that traumatize people and animals this time of year. It was fun actually learning more about the history surrounding this day/event and maybe by next year (though I won't hold my breath) there will be more sensory-friendly fireworks popping about!
Have a wonderful holiday, stay safe, have a wonderful existence & see you later!

Ep. 34 - TWS Sports Podcast Interview Hey everyone, I learned about an amazing school just for Autism! Today I met with Adam who is a teacher at Tettenhall Wood School in the UK and we learned a bit about each other and what we do! It was amazing to have him here on the podcast (I want to say show haha) and I would love to have him back on again at some point in the future! Down below are links to the TWS Sports Podcast Instagram, their podcast page, and a link to the school that Adam works at!
Have a wonderful existence, love you all!

Bonus Ep 28 - Virtual Work is Hard to Find Hi everyone, yeah I know what I said last time, where it's easier to find virtual work... I lied haha, no I didn't lie, I was just misinformed? I didn't lie, the work is out there, but it's extremely hard to find.
Today I talked about the different places and things I heard about that can help with working online and I also talked a bit about the balance testing I went through last week. I hope all of you are doing well and I love you all very much! Have a wonderful existence!

Bonus Ep. 27 - Guest on Imprinted Stories Gabriella: Arm I was a guest on the podcast Imprinted Stories earlier this week on Wednesday and I had an amazing time talking to Lisa about a whole bunch of different things while telling her about some scars I have on my arm.
If you want to check out her podcast, you can find her here: Imprinted Stories
Gabriella discusses the scars she's left on her arm; however, our conversation really delves into religion, questioning your own belief systems, and autism. To listen to Gabriella's Podcast, Actively Autistic: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/actively-autistic/id1498395366

Ep. 32 - Blood Isn't Always Thicker Than Water Hi everyone! In this episode, I think the title speaks really well for itself. I talk about my family experiences and how I've learned recently that blood isn't always thicker than water. I made this episode because I wasn't sure who else needed to hear it.&nbsp;
Remember, you can always make your own family.&nbsp;

Episode 31 - Invisible Disorders & Conversations Hey everyone! In today's episode, I met someone new and exciting! Her name is Alexandra (Alex) Guillot and she is the author of her brand new book Invisible Conversations (releasing soon!). Today we talked about the struggles of having an invisible disability and tearing down these walls that have so far been holding us back, teaching us to advocate for ourselves in a personal, academic, and professional setting. I'm really glad to have met her and I can't wait to get ahold of her book! Definitely go check her out.
