I feel like I’ve gotten a second wind. (It probably just means I’ve recovered homeostasis.) Before I forget, any geniuses who want me to link their blog, I’m happy to oblige. You don’t have to be autistic. I’d love to add links to our allies; people who support actually autistic people as a self-advocating group endeavoring to improve our access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
I enjoy celebrating and encouraging others who are driven to be their best self. If that’s you, dear genius, just let me know in the comments section below. 🙃 I know I go on and on about how amazing humans are as a species, but in my line of work (AI dev), this is reiterated on a daily basis.
One of the blogs I follow is Editing Advantage. EA just graduated with a bachelors degree in English. (You know Ms. Grammatically Challenged is wicked impressed.) I hope you all take a moment to congratulate her. I’m definitely going to hire her the next time I need to write an investment prospectus.
I’m heading to Denver tomorrow to meet with a new client. I’m excited as I’ll be designing a custom musical instrument for a musician with a recent spinal chord injury. I discussed my latest project of creating an electronic drum kit for a drummer with cerebral palsy (my bro) to a former client. They were intrigued and mentioned me to the new client. It led to a long FaceTime chat and a new project. Yay.
My boss said go for it, as long as I don’t quit. I have mixed feelings about that conversation, but it’ll keep for now. M. is supportive of my plan to pay back Stevie Nicks, (Amy Lee, Beyoncè, Sheryl Crow, Eminem, etc.) for all they’ve given me through their words and music by paying it forward. (He agrees it’s a better idea than trying to figure out how to send them more shit that will likely confuse them at best, from someone they were previously unaware existed.) 😂
Back to Hogwarts to learn more wisdom. Peace.
