Behaves as if? But what if I really do?
I’ve been called a know-it-all and even though it’s supposed to be an insult, I refuse to take it as one. I read. A lot. I’m opinionated. I say the things that other people think, BUT are too afraid to say out loud. Because I truly do not give a shit what other people think and I don’t back down.
Here is the difference between me and a true “know-it-all” –I keep reading and I keep learning. I am open to the views of others *IF* they back up their opinions with some well thought out supporting arguments. I have been known to change my mind as new information is presented. I have a dark, twisted, often inappropriate sense of humor. And trust me, 9 times out of 10 I am arguing the other side just to push your buttons. It’s fun.
I started this blog because my attention span is small. I had an autism only blog over at http://www.autismwars.com –but sometimes I felt like writing about things that are not always autism related. I slacked off on that blog enough as it was… imagine me trying to run more than one? So from here on out, all my ridiculous, infuriating opinions, thoughts and blah blah blah will be here. Along with the occasional bit of photography.
I like to curse. It doesn’t mean I am stupid. It means I like to fucking swear. I have a bachelors of science in Communication Sciences & Disorders. I dabbled in an MPH, a year of law school, and some post-bacc work in Anthropology. I also went to school for web design! (and yet I am using a wordpress template (lazy)).
