This is Autism (Chelsea)

Written by Chelsea

Autism is …
Wearing colorful tie-dye shirts frequently.
Setting an alarm clock to 6:24 AM, waking up exactly 6.4 hours after midnight.
Drawing quick cat sketches all over college notes while the professor is not speaking, and other students are allowed to chat.
Stimming in front of people, including significant other, who stims in return.
Sometimes too exhausted to engage in any forms of small talk.
Ready to finish the Bachelors as soon as possible, and apply for teaching credentials in SpEd.
This is autism.
