The AWARENESS of this month

April comes around once a year, yet it seems like the other 11 months are spent recovering. March was a very rocky month for me emotionally and physically so this Autism Awareness/Acceptance month has caught me off guard. I also actively choose to not engage in the 5 million autism posts this month as it gets very draining and instead am very selective of where my comments go. Self care has become a new and welcomed part of my daily life and it’s even more important during this month. So as I’m finishing up my official Autism Awareness/Acceptance post, here’s a smaller one.

Things I did instead of dwelling on Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month

  • Paint my toenails
  • Practiced spinning my props a LOT
  • Dyed part of my hair purple
  • Folded my laundry
  • Went to the gym
  • Ran away to Albany, NY
  • Saw The Mountain Goats in concert
  • Cleaned my bathroom
  • Made food for myself
  • Performed a gig on a catwalk
  • Attempted to get enough sleep
