Hey guys! Some of you may remember that at the beginning of April I promised to do one post a day about autism acceptance / awareness / understanding. Others may have noticed that this did not, in fact, happen. The explanation for this is simple. At the beginning of the month, I saw April as just being Autism Awareness/Acceptance month and posted a new blog post every day. By mid to late April, though, it occurred to me that I'd forgotten April is also term papers/final exam month. As a result, as you might imagine, instead of posting on here, more and more I spent my time holed up in my room cramming - I mean, studying - for exams and trying to meet word counts that seemed to grow higher with every word I typed.
Caley has also been inundated by the same end-of-the-semester deluge. In fact, just last week she wrote TWENTY FIVE PAGES worth of papers. As I have mentioned here before, writing is very difficult for Caley as, like many other Autistics, she has dysgraphia. As a result, when she can she generally avoids writing. I was and am so incredibly impressed with how much writing she did last week, not only in the fact that she managed to do so, but that she didn't back down from such an imposingly large task. Go Caley!
Anyways, my point is that even when I wanted to post things I didn't because I didn't want to bother Caley to approve what I wrote (I wasn't kidding when I said she reads and approves everything) when she was busy working herself.
All of this is my round about way of apologizing for not having made all thirty days of posts. I'm sorry about that and though I'm sure most of you didn't even notice in the first place (Facebook doesn't show all my posts in your newsfeeds - the more likes/shares/comments a post gets, the more likely Facebook is to show it to you, but even that's not exact), I still felt I owed you an explanation.
Caley and I both have a brief break before our summer classes start up, so hopefully we'll be able to post a bit more between now and then. In the meanwhile, thanks for reading!
