Straight Up. (Autistic)

Posted on the

I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t stop for lunch or take breaks. I get my own high from hours and hours of focused sharp effort. Wether that time is spent coding, explaining or building Lego gearboxes

I tend to think I’m right and get intensely frustrated by half measures. I believe people should be bold, do or do not. You know the rest. I strongely feel that if your going to own something and make something happen that means you commit as strongly to those things you don’t want as much as the things you do. The hard decisions, the difficult no is infinitely more productive than a half hearted diplomatic maybe.

I see a mostly black and white world. I feel better with the lion in my rucksack, so I carry the lion. Everyone knows the lion, I’m carrying the lion therefore no hiding the fact. Im different i know that. celebrate it, embrace it and make it a feature. Grey is wooly undefined and without structure. Grey is hard.

I am very specific. I am straight up. Autistic.
