Hello, my name is Annie Snow. My real name is Leeann by birth, but most people call me Annie. Either way is okay with me. I have never blogged before so it’s all new to me, I always wanted to learn but didn’t know where to start. Sometimes it’s hard to come up with something to write about. I was given the opportunity to blog for ASDNext so I can get some experience.
Anyway, let me tell you about me and the kind of person that I am. I am a 30-year-old woman with autism. I live in Harrisburg with my parents and two siblings. I don’t work nor do I drive. Also, I don’t go to school. I tried the college experience but it didn’t work out very well. It was a bit challenging for me. I am, however, a hard worker at home when it comes to house chores. I am very helpful when it comes to helping my parents out around the house. Also, I am a kind person with a sweet and gentle heart. I can make people laugh sometimes just by quoting a line from a TV show or movie that’s funny.
Every month on the fourth Wednesday, I attend this group called Spectrum Friends of Greater Harrisburg. It’s a hybrid meeting that is held both in-person and virtual. It’s at the community center room on the 2nd floor of the Camp Hill Giant. I go there virtually because it’s easiest for me and I feel more comfortable attending from home. At these meetings, we talk about various subjects and sometimes we will even have guest speakers present there. Every month we take a vote on where we are going when it comes to our group trips. I love going on our monthly trips because I get to see new places and meet new people. It gets me out of my comfort zone. I found this group and wanted to join so I can make friends. I never really had any friends, but I was accepted into the group with a warm welcome. It feels good to have a group of friends that accepts you.
In my free time, I like doing my hobbies. I love doing crafts, especially making jewelry. I have been making jewelry for about 11 years and would love to move on to other crafts. I wouldn’t mind taking up painting because it seems therapeutic or learning any craft in general. One day I would love to make video tutorials on how to make jewelry. It’s my dream and always will be.
I am learning to cook with my parents. Some recipes I learned from my father and some I learned from my mother. I am learning to make side dishes and some meals. There are a lot of recipes I would love to learn and try cooking. I have gained such a deep love for cooking since I started learning late last year. I have even baked a few things such as cookies and cornbread. Everyone in the house loves when I make the best cornbread. It’s a crowd pleaser! This past Easter, I got to learn how to make cake pops.
Also, I love doing my errands like going shopping at Costco every month and going to Hershey to get an iced coffee. I love going through Hershey and driving past the park because it’s one of those things that make me the happiest, especially when I am feeling down. Out of all the things that make me happy, is when I am sitting on the couch with my dog next to me and my cat near me watching TV with the family.
To conclude this blog, I would like to say thank you for letting me give an introduction about myself and hopefully I get to gain a new skill with this. I hope you enjoyed reading this and have a very pleasant day!
