Singing, School and So Much More!

So, on Tuesday, school started again. But the rest of the holidays were okay. I did some paintball shooting on Thursday at a holiday programme. It was fun. On Monday, I recorded a video of myself singing and put it on YouTube. So, at school, I'm making a dress, and I'm almost finished. I had a good 2 days so far. We have a little knitting group and we meet at lunchtime. We have a challenge to knit 100 beanies for children at Starship hospital by winter next year. It's going pretty well.

A (Not Very) Eventful Week

So, I've decided this blog is going to be a weekly thing, so expect a new post every Wednesday*, no sooner. As in the title, the week hasn't been too eventful. On Saturday I did some shopping for late birthday presents. On Monday I went up to Hamilton for a holiday programme. On Thursday last week, and on Tuesday I did some babysitting. It earns good money really, and I love being around kids so it's win-win. Other than that, I've just been here at the computer, doing other stuff. It's school holidays right now, so not much to do.

Well, that's it for now. See you next Wednesday!

*Wednesday being in NZ time. It may be Tuesday in other parts of the world. Or Wednesday. Depends where you live.

The Very Beginning

I've always known I was different. I mean, what normal person has a hard time making friends, and gets upset easily over little things, pushing them further into social isolation? It wasn't until I was ten that I found out the truth: I have Asperger's syndrome. No, that's not when I was diagnosed; I was diagnosed when I was five and a half. I just happened to be there when my mum was talking to a friend, and I heard her say these four words: "Teri has Asperger's syndrome" At hearing that, I remember saying to her something along the lines of "I do? Why didn't you tell me?"

That was then. About six years ago.

Hi. My name is Teri. I'm sixteen years old and I have Asperger's synmdrome. I created this blog so that people - fellow Aspies and NT's alike - can see how I live and cope with Asperger's. Feel free to leave a comment. And before you say anything, and this is important, in case you haven't guessed I AM NOT SELF-DIAGNOSED. I HAVE BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DIAGNOSED!
