#MyAutism

#MyAutism.jpg

There’s a lot of Anti-Vaxxers & people who believe that autism should be eradicated.

Because of a joint effort from all the #actuallyautistic allies, lead in part by International Badass Activists @badassactivist We were able to successfully take over the #endautismnow hashtag that is promoting a book called “how to end the autism epidemic” by JB Handley & promoted ignorantly by Jenny McCarthy, they’ve come up with a new hashtag, #MyAutism.

Now, I believe this gives me a chance to talk about my autism and who I am as an individual, instead of seeing a ridiculous amount of nonsense. I hope more of us take this opportunity to show the world we belong here and we do not need to be wiped off the planet.

New JOB!

Today I embark on a new (actually, continuation) of a journey I was once on. I was with an amazing company for 3 years. I helped set the store up and, sadly, I helped shut it down too.

Now that i’ve relocated to Vancouver, there’s another location. I was lucky enough to get hired and today is my very first day. I’m so happy to be able to utilize my art supply knowledge once again. I’m a bit rusty so i’ll definitely need to refresh and revive my memory. It’s incredibly nice to be able to ramble about different products and connect with customers on a creative level. It also helps to inspire me and keep my creative flow going. I also love the fact i’m going to meet new, local, likeminded people.

I’m finally focusing more on myself. I have to help my Mom clean out a car soon. I need to go to costco and return bottles. Life goes on. I still need to work more on my Retrophiliac & Co. bags…but all in due time, right?

Evolving, slowly.

I’ve been working on new patterns while we wait for our fabric tags for retrophiliac and co.

I am very anxious and I have been really internalizing my stress. I’m trying not to, but my appetite is gone and my sleep patterns are all screwed up. I’m napping a lot and I haven’t gone outside as much as I should.

I’m going through a dramatic change. I have a job interview next week and I am crossing my fingers that I get it. It’s something i’ve done before and loved immensely. It’s also walking distance from where I am staying and right down the street from where my sister works.

Making friends or having a social life and getting involved in things that this city has to offer is something I would like to do a lot more of. I feel incredibly lucky to be back here, surrounded by family. I never felt like I spent enough time with them.

Please bear with me. I am growing as a person!

Big Changes in my life.

I have been hyper focused on creating my “Retrophiliac & Co.” Product line with my Mum. I also quit my job and moved to Vancouver. I’m currently sleeping on a couch and living between my Mum’s & my older Sister’s place. I do have to say, i’m happier.

 

This is more information on what we’re working on, I would love for you to share & if you’d like, pre-order.

Retrophiliac & Co. Preorder!

 

Thank you! Would love to hear from you.

Introducing: Retrophiliac & Co.

My Mother and I have always talked about working on a project together and we never got around to it. Finally, my vision is taking shape and it’s turning in to reality.

Introducing:

Retrophiliac & Co.

https://www.facebook.com/retrophiliacandco/

I create the one of a kind fabric. My Mom takes care of the the technical aspects: making patterns and sewing. We come up with the designs of each accessory together and turn it in to something really amazing.
