End of second semester
This is a brief update to let everyone know not only have I gone back to school for a second Masters degree but also am working thru my second semester. Hopefully as some breaks become available this page will get more active!
2. A better Roadmap With Signposts
Continuing my new updates to my blog. I have decided I am going to try and organize my page a little better. As you may have noticed (or may not, depends if I get the layout changed by this blog, likely not-see ADHD issues), there are new tabs to see new topics. Since I have partially made it my goal to be a voice among female autistic/ADHD-ers, I am going to focus on the neurodiversity aspect of my life.
Here are the topics:
ND Life: just general things going on. there may be sub titles such as “Struggles” and “Thinking it Out Loud”… we shall see where this goes. Some categories may be separate. “Special Interests” and “Stimming”
ND SocialMed: evaluating social media. yep, i’m doing it. Scary. Trying to approach it in a different way. I need to. Stress and mental health call my name on it.
ND Career/Ed: looking at my MSIDT stuff. I will not be talking about my current job as much as possible. I feel that is both protecting me and paying respect to my current employer.
ND Faith: thoughts on belief/faith/etc. Watch out–my theology is showing.
ND Support, Q&A: these are more for those reading wondering how to help those with similar issues.
ND Parenting: for 2 legged kids and 4 legged. Grant it my kid is ND too, so helpful insight there. I also have pets and have some thoughts on that.
ND Relate: relationships–either thru friends or other people.
More categories may come and go but I thought it would be helpful. Hopefully we can all learn a little from this
Or 2021 at this rate. But wherever you are, you’re here! and that’s important!
I’m pretty sure this is something MANY of us have thought throughout the year. So in the spirit of our hopes and desires… I decided to restart/revamp my blog. I know I’ve been quiet for a while. Partially intentional, partially unintentional. There is a lot going on behind the scenes (see the 8/9/2020 post) but honestly, I had a partial writer’s block and lack of motivation. And started school. And took leave for medication changes.
2020 has been the curve ball from left field that bounced off third base player’s shoe only to result in a double play with no runs scored. For those not into baseball (oh sad day….), this is like the impossible downward spiral bad play. The random craziness that just kept ensuing. Even as we speak in October, we have moved into a hurricane season that ran out of names and we just lost Van Halen.
So hopefully this change and update will be helpful! There is still some good in the world. I managed to get real good help. I started my degree program for instructional design (my new and amazing passion and study) and I am finally freely to be ME!
SO enjoy the new posts as them come! And hopefully 2020 will be over soon.
Don’t be alarmed. I am still here, still conjuring up thousands of thoughts upon thoughts so we can all have fun discussions around those lovely thought bubbles we supress every day.
I have 60+ blog topics ready to focus in on and write up.
But I am also working at home thru a pandemic while starting a 2nd masters with a husband who is trying to complete his Ph.D., discovering my own self identity as an autistic, adhd-er, pcos woman alongside my son who is starting preschool where he gets help with his autistic struggles as well but they are going all distance learning digital this year.
So things are coming. It just might take a bit. Meaning the fire might be low, but its not out and just like a phoenix I will rise eventually from its flames.
