Curious Case of the Dog in the Nighttime Reading Review

By Khylil

So, there was a meeting that I had about 2 years ago that caused me to relate to the issues of Christopher Boone’s Character in Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.  I have found it hard to discuss all the scenarios that went into the book.  It’s about a young 15-year-old […]

By Khylil

During the 2018 Annual Philadelphia Autism Project Conference: Lighting the Way through Transitions on November 30, 2018, I had the chance to talk with and interview public speaker and self-advocate, Kerry Magro.  As we shared small tidbits about our lives, joked and had a really good time, there was one thing I felt as though […]

Salsa Friday’s

By Khylil

This month has been pretty interesting, but kind of eerie at that same time. It started off with some pretty uninviting times where I experienced a great deal of boredom that I put myself into. Do I enjoy it? Sometimes. Do I want it to change? Indeed! Out of all the things that I had […]

The Art of Creativity

By Khylil

My mother would always bring up the ideology of superman as an example of autism and how his presentation, or specifically, the “S” on his chest is the symbol of hope. It was that very idea that got me into superheroes and comic books. However, this image represents so many things from a personal perspective […]

Restaurant Outing

By Khylil

I have been doing lots of things that make me more social, thus creating a better me for more realistic situations. So a few months back, around the end of my spring semester, I was at a hotpot restaurant and somehow, this setting has drastically changed my perspective on what was happening. I wouldn’t put […]

Comfort in Distant Locations

By Khylil

Sometimes people with Asperger’s or autism have a hard time getting used to areas they are not familiar with. This was (and still is) myself to this day. I have been more of an “inside” kind of person, and even though I had the want to leave my house, I never made that much of […]

Autism is AU-Some

By Khylil

Recently, I’ve found it difficult to compliment my friends on their accomplishments and/or the way they go about handling a certain task. In this day and age I would like to say thank you to everyone who has been a HUGE part of my life and supported me when things were very hard for me […]

Puzzling Puzzle Pieces

By Khylil

The symbol of the puzzle itself is very interesting, it shows a sign of confusion every time you try to attach it to the other pieces and just wonder if it really belongs there. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. One thing for sure, you won’t get the full picture until you’ve actually placed more […]

The Motivation of Being Myself

By Khylil

At birth, doctors told my mother that my disability was something that wasn’t going to do me very well. It was an emotional detachment disorder and I probably wouldn’t be capable of doing things like kids my same age. Some of these things involved, walking, talking, responding to others, or even taking care of myself […]

Small Walks, Open Evenings

By Khylil

This is just a random thought I had when I was walking a few times recently after work; I get the feeling that I enjoy taking pictures of very bright things. I believe that my love for lights and good music is just one of the few things I enjoy to do outside and I […]

Proper Planning

By Khylil

I swear that organization is a weakness for me! It is not like me to do one thing without feeling like I left something behind! This isn’t anything unusual though as it becomes a more repetitive phase of certain events. For instance, last week consisted of me studying for two different exams, being best man […]

Isolation

By Khylil

During my summer, I was back after a refreshing trip from Baltimore where I had a wonderful time with friends enjoying the most, really cool comic based themes for the closing of the 2016 “OTAKON!! At the Baltimore convention.” Now that I was home, I had wonder how to feel after going from meeting and […]
