Perfectly Imperfect

The goal is not to be perfect; the goal is to be accepted for the imperfections.

Vampire Walk – Limited by the Sun

The weather is taking a cooler turn, and I thought it would be such a good idea to take a mini “exploration” into the forest-ish trail to clear my head for a bit. So, I am clad in my favorite red jacket (which is my only jacket as I decided to leave all my thick warm coats behind during my transit in Singapore…

New Chapter in Odense, Denmark

I have arrived in Odense, Denmark for slightly more than a week now. There hasn’t been much time to “settle in” to the new environment. I was beyond exhausted since the Master Class for Asperger’s in Perth, followed by endless feasting and shopping for 3 days in Singapore, finally the last leg of 15 hours flight to Copenhagen, Denmark. Diffusion…

Lion King (Autism Friendly) Review

Lion King is officially my first musical! I had watched other performances – Kitaro; Michael Learns to Rock – but I had not been to a musical. There were so many considerations. I wanted so badly to watch “The Last Emperor” at Esplanade Singapore. I wanted to catch “Cats” and “Phantom of the Opera”, but I was so hesitant. If you…

I Survived Thus Far with 60/40 Formula!

Accommodation – poor arrangement and handling that could potentially cause them a court order, never did resolve, I compromised in a way. Stress contribution – Super High. Functional assessment – disagreed…

I Am Still a Child – Meeting an Old Friend

The Larger Picture

I may never escape the brutal social repercussion, but it is not to say that I give up living. I may never be the most pleasant companion, because with time, the most understanding partner will still expect you to have learnt the ‘skills’. The task on hand is to educate the public that just because I am learning, doesn’t mean I can ever master it, I may always just be the student; it’s always going to be an enormous effort on my part, so perhaps we can meet half way. Stop expecting me to ever be the social butterfly – my version of it is like a part-timer in your world. I can be the most charming social butterfly, but I can only handle part-time. 😉 So, I don’t give up learning; and you give up expecting the impossible. Deal?

Surreality

There was at time when I walked through life in surreality. Everything seemed floating and unreal. I was convinced that if I were to close my eyes, everything will STOP and nothing mattered. It wasn’t about death, it was about the unconsciousness in reality. Have you wondered? What happened when you slept? My world stopped moving (in a way) when…
