Neutral Specialist

By Khylil

So the last thing I wrote about is how I often would observe things that people would do in a group conversation; which is something I do too often. Of course, it’s just because I do not know how to put myself in a group conversation at ANY time because I either come in way […]

Recalling the Fall

By Khylil

Throughout this year, I have tried to get used to doing two things: one of them was trying to improve on my social skills, whether in business or casual settings, and the other was trying to pick up another hobby that involved me leaving the house more. The similarities? I have picked up the habit […]

Naturalness in Communication

By Khylil

I don’t really think about this as much, but sometimes I wonder, “Do I really follow up with one on one communication well?” I don’t think about it that much because whenever I am feeling social, I tend to do MOST of it well, like making direct eye contact and using my gestures properly to […]

Summer is Over: What is There For Me in the Fall?

By Khylil

As summer starts to die down, I wonder what my next set of plans will be since I would usually be starting school around this time. Since I won’t be doing anything school or work related for a while, I think I’ll just go on the rest of this autumn actually enjoying it and taking […]

New Beginnings

By Khylil

In mid-October last year, my sister announced that she was pregnant and it was by far the biggest surprise for me because I came to the realization that I was nervous at this point in my life to become an uncle. I wondered if I was even going to do it right since I have […]

Do I Have a Luggage Issue?

By Khylil

I often don’t know what I need for an everyday trip, so I would just take my backpack with me. Half of the time, I would feel as though it’s needed and sometimes…I don’t. It’s not something I would question usually, but it is something I think about these days since I’ve been in the […]

Graduation: Ideas About The Future

By Khylil

So it’s been a few weeks since I’ve graduated from school and despite the fact that I feel nervous on what to do next, I had some thoughts about whether I should or shouldn’t further my education. At first, I went on the thought thinking that I should because I have done so much at […]

School Bake Sale: A Personal Highlight for Autism Awareness

By Khylil

For autism awareness, my group in class had to make an event to donate for a charitable cause. I thought the event donations should go towards Jaden’s Voice (a non-profit organization for autism) so with this decision in hand, I felt very confident that I was able to explain my point, and was able to […]

Music To My Ears

By Khylil

Since the other bloggers seem to be talking about video games, I thought I might as well join in on the fun! I too, live off of video games, and have made them a very important part of my life. However, I have grown up more on the soundtracks rather than the gaming itself. I […]

Stepping Outside My Box

By Khylil

In the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that I have gotten better with being a team player and a team leader. Sometimes I don’t think I do well as a team player or team leader because I don’t really talk that much, nor do I like to share my thoughts in a verbally communicative session. […]

Top Typist

By Khylil

Being aware that this month is the start of a new year, I never really knew what to improve for myself as the monthly norm. Then it suddenly hit me: I’ve always wanted to become a better speed typist. To do this, I pretty much have to spend a good 1-2 hours daily working on […]

Issues with Social Cues

By Khylil

 Every now and then, I get distracted on small things in conversations, not saying that’s out of my control but sometimes I can’t really go through a whole conversation. Sometimes I am not aware of the topic of the conversation and may wind up spaced out…, but does that truly mean that I do not […]

Weekend Over the Campfire

By Khylil

With the weather finally getting warmer I thought it was probably a good idea for me to go out and move a bit more by taking part in activities other than the conferences and the public speeches I have attended this month for autism awareness. I wanted to get out and do more outside like […]

Lessons from at Home Boredom

By Khylil

I have a fairly well-adjusted schedule but lately I haven’t been able to do much.  Although I haven’t been doing much I still try to be active. Typically, in the colder months I stay at home and am unable to venture outside.  However, I have been able to cope with some of this inactivity because I’ve found […]
