Lost in a Book

Helloo Everyone,

I've been meaning to do this book tag for a while now but I never got round to doing it, until today obviously! I first came across it over on Aisling's blog all the way back in January and after finding out about some of her book rituals I knew I had to let you in on mine because it's not like I talk about books much on here right? I'm not even sorry - you all know I'm a book lover through and through anyway!

Misconceptions about Autism

autism

Helloo Everyone,

As much as Autism has become more widely understood over the past 50 years, there's still a number of misconceptions surrounding it and what's worse is that the majority of them are actually quite negative. With me having Aspergers myself I've encountered many of them both as a child and an adult which is why it's important to help raise awareness so more people can have a better understanding of the condition. This is the post where I debunk some of the misconceptions that deserve to be left in the past!

Did you know Autism affects more than 1 in 100 people in the UK?

Helloo Everyone,

Today is the day I do my first ever Q&A and the excitement is building over here! I decided a few weeks ago to bite the bullet and asked the great people of Twitter if they fancied giving me some questions to answer for a post; I even done a hashtag because I take myself way too seriously sometimes. ANYWAY you guys did not disappoint as I've answered a whopping 18 questions so you can all get to know me that little bit better and maybe get a giggle out of it. Let's get started!

*My Unexpected Interest in Politics

take interest in politics

Helloo Everyone,

If you would have told me a year ago that I would become interested in politics I definitely would not have believed you, more because I never really thought it was useful to know anything about it especially with me not being taught about politics at school. It wasn't till last year's general election when I got to vote for the first time that I realised how out of touch I was which was what lead me to do some research of my own. You're probably reading this wondering what this has got to you? Well I'm here to share my reasons on why you should take an interest in politics too!

I think it's really important, essential in fact, for all of us to at least learn about politics because if you think about it we should be allowed to have a say in how our country works. To do that we need to know how and it's something that schools should be educating us on! Don't you think?
