A Good Father

Imagine a father and his daughter. On the daughter’s birthday, the father gifts her with a cool toy that she’s always wanted. Why? Because he loves her, and wants her to have fun and enjoy herself.

Now imagine that the child has been misbehaving — disobeying the father and doing her own will. Consequently, the father takes the toy away from her for a while. Why?

I hate it when I can’t think of anything to write about besides tags. Don’t get me wrong — you guys have given me (and shown me) some really cool ideas, but I don’t have the confidence to do them myself yet.

~~Autism~~ How it Works & What it’s Like

Howdy, Hunters! Today I have a topic I’d like to talk about that I thought would be interesting: ASD. I inherited it from my dad, and was diagnosed when I was little. So I’m going to talk about what it’s like being “on the spectrum”, as well as talk through some of the symptoms.

But first, let me educate you a little bit! *throws on cliche schoolteacher outfit and produces a chalkboard from thin air*
