Hi. If you’ve been reading this blog at all so far, you might know a few things about what’s important to me, but a proper introduction will give you a better idea of who I am. I’m 30 years old, and I live in Texas, a state where a large number of people seem to be interested in seceding from the united states because a black guy won the presidential election again. I’m not one of those people.
I survive off the kindness of friends and family while doing what I can to help them. I’ve had numerous jobs, almost all of which I’ve hated for pretty much the same reason. They wanted me to lie to people in order to get money from them. Unlike most aspies, I really like people, and I usually do well in social situations. I developed a good sense of humor when I was young, and people really respond to that. I’m currently undiagnosed, but I’m working on that as well as a way to become independent.
I have many talents. I write very well, and I’m pretty good at photography. Like most aspies, I’m also very good with computers. My speciality is navigating the internet and finding things, but I’ve done a little bit of everything, from installing new hardware to troubleshooting software problems. In general, I’m a good problem solver. If I don’t know something, I just look it up.
I’m an agnostic atheist. That means that while I don’t believe any gods exist, I don’t claim that they definitely don’t. It’s just very very unlikely that any of them do. My 3 sisters (1 older and 2 younger) and I were raised going to catholic churches, and through years of careful consideration, I came to the conclusion at the age of 19 that I was no longer a christian. Several years after that, I shed most, if not all, traces of superstition that still clung to my mind and declared myself an atheist. I don’t believe in the supernatural in any form, be it gods, fairies, leprechauns, or ghosts. I am an intelligent and reasonable adult with at least a near-genius IQ, and I am way past emotional safety blankets like religions.
I am an anarchist. It’s sad that I even have to explain this, but so much misinformation is spread about anarchy, I have to share what I mean. I think that it’s wrong to initiate the use of force on peaceful people, and the government does it routinely when it threatens to put people in jail for not paying taxes. Never mind what the taxes are used for. The ends don’t justify the means. It’s wrong to extort money from people if you wear a ski mask, and it’s wrong to do it if you wear a blue uniform with a shiny badge on the front.
