Sensory days – when the lights are brighter, sounds are louder, & smells are smellier than normal. Eighty nine percent of my Twitter followers agree that they have them. So let’s talk!
I consider myself a mostly competent driver nowadays, but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, learning to drive was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I needed my independence as a teenager.
I’ve never lived in a city where not having a car works. Even now, my job is several towns away from where I live. Learning to drive was the only way I could see myself getting the things I wanted – so I did it.
I had a bad habit of rear-ending people and backing-up into things when I first started to drive. My mother worried about me anytime I was out on the road (for good reason).

Sadie is a very sweet and attentive friend.
I’ve had run-ins with quite a few bullies over the years. Now, as I am getting older and wiser, I’ve learned to avoid bullies. How do I do this, by not allowing them into my life. (This was much harder to do in school.)
We are part of a culture that values hard work and long hours. Regardless, it is important to take time for yourself, even during an extended work day.
I’ve got an exciting update! I read each and every comment, email, and question. However, don’t always have time to respond back to them all. To make things more efficient, I’m going to start answering your questions in my videos!
