Aspergirl Gone Rogue

Wow. So it's been awhile. Long time no blog, lil' Abs. So, why not hit the ground running again with something personal and freeing, with just a touch of advocacy? Life is weird. I've recently been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), more specifically, the kind that used to be known as Asperger's. This has… Continue reading Aspergirl Gone Rogue

Proud to be Flat Mum

I moved into my new flat on Friday evening: it has been the most stunning whirlwind and I am so pumped up for the year ahead.

I met heaps of wonderfully weird humans akin to myself, had phantastic… Continue reading Philosophy, Sexuality, and Christian Me

Cold Turkey – Day 1

Guess what I had for breakfast...? A very Instagram-worthy chia seed pudding with banana, nuts, crumbled bliss balls, and coconut sugar. I had the strongest urge to document it, which is ultimately quite embarrassing to confess. I resisted, and then I analysed what drives me to want to share my eating habits. I think Instagram… Continue reading Cold Turkey – Day 1
