Update: My major is still Sociology, but my minor is now Special Education (non-teaching). However, I am lazy and didn’t want to make a blog post about it.
So, I finally decided to create a blog.
I’d been toying with the idea for a while, but only just now set it up. The idea of finding an outlet specifically for the subject of autism and disability is quite appealing; thus, so begins the blog.
(In the middle of Dead Week at college, because I needed another distraction to avoid final exams.)
My name is Courtney, and I’m a undergraduate student currently studying Sociology and Psychology. I’m also autistic and have several different disabilities, which makes for an interesting college experience altogether.
As there seems to be so many misconceptions about people on the spectrum, I wanted to write about it. There’s a lot of little things and different aspects of life as an autistic, and I think documenting these things may be helpful in illustrating what it’s like – as well as hopefully gathering more acceptance for us.
Not that I actually expect anyone to read this. If anything, this blog will mostly be my little way of coping in a world that isn’t always the most understanding.
Here’s hoping this goes well!
