When I go to sleep I like to be asleep around 9:30 p.m. But recently I’m going to sleep around 10:42 p.m. or last night 2:30 A.M.!!!!! The reason is that I think that there are so many things rolling around my head and I might get a little hungry sometimes. (You see I’m not a big snacker and forget to eat breakfast a lot. So I’m only eating at like Lunch and Dinner.) I walk around my room and thrash all about in bed – walk up and down the hallway – and read. I am also thinking up theses great stories like… Well your just gonna have to keep on reading for that…..

Here is a comment from Chapter Two of my book that I couldn’t answer within the comment area:

“Does the label of “autism” change how you view yourself? Everyone’s brain structure is a little different (every activity you do throughout your life adds connections and changes brain mappings, strengthening certain areas over others, etc.). So, people with autism have additional differences, certain areas more and less developed. It would be that way even if you didn’t have the title of Asperger’s, and you’d still be you. My question is… do you think that *knowing* that there are additional differences changes how you view yourself? Does it make you more comfortable, knowing there are reasons behind why you may think about things differently than other people? Or does it make you feel as if you need to behave in a certain way to fit with the label? I’d be interested in hearing what you think!

P.S. Hi! I’m very impressed with your blog. Nice meeting you, Connor!”

Here is my answer to the first question, Does the label of “autism” change how you view yourself?”: No it doesn’t I feel like everybody else.

“Does it make you more comfortable, knowing there are reasons behind why you may think about things differently than other people?”: No it doesn’t make me more comfortable. I don’t want to think asperger’s controls the way I think.  It’s just me.

Or does it make you feel as if you need to behave in a certain way to fit with the label?”: No, I just behave the way I want to behave.  For example, sometimes if I bring a social studies textbook home, I just read it on my own to learn about ancient civilizations, things I don’t know much about. I have a really good memory so just out of nowhere I can tell my Mom something that she did not know. Like when a nearby a volcano erupted  near Pompeii (a city in ancient Rome). It did not spew any lava but instead spewed pumice a type of obsidian rock I believe and buried the city.

Sometimes I flap when I’m thinking of like a little adventure in my mind daydreaming you might call it. But I can still pay attention to things around me. I don’t flap because I think it fits the stereotype of autism, I flap because I just do it.

Feel free to comment on well… this answer to a comment.

I almost got killed last Thursday but enough of that. Let’s move on to a more important subject like for starters Jirachi. Jirachi is a pokemon on my game Pokemon Platinum. I got at Gamestop the person there did a funky thing to my DS and……. Boom! I got Jirachi. No really I did. If you don’t play pokemon (like my mom) you probably don’t care (also like my mom.) Here’s my Mom. “It’s true. I am bored to tears with Pokemon. I can’t help it.”

Hi, I’m back! It’s me Connor. Ok, Balor (my brother) also got Jirachi.

Now let’s get back to that not important subject. The part about me almost dying. My Dad made me and my brother a snowfort. It wasn’t an awesome multi level snowfort like it is now. It was just a round hole. So I decided to go to this outlook on my road, on the other side of our hill. To do that I have to go through the woods. So I grabbed my sled and headed off.

Unfortunately Balor was outside and decided to follow me. So just as I was setting up on the straight away and catching my breath I waited for Balor. And then when I saw him I picked my legs up put them in my sled and I was ready to go! But there was one teensy weensy problem. The sled wouldn’t go. So I kinda had to nudge it forward and it was going pretty slowly. And by then Balor had caught up and set me off track down the steep slope. Luckily I always go down the steep slope it’s fun! At the bottom me and Balor played for a little bit and then Balor started to climb back up and I followed him.

Suddenly I heard a bwsssssh and a big limb and all this snow fell down it was beautiful. And then I heard crraaaacccck! And then it happened again this time it wasn’t so beautiful! Because it was over me! Luckily I rolled out of the way to avoid being crushed but a pretty thick part of the tree limb still got me. And then I fell asleep not unconscious, asleep. I’ve been unconscious before and this wasn’t it. By then Balor had pushed the branch off and throwing snow in my face because I was mumbling. Why was I mumbling? I was having a great dream! Balor is always there when I’m having great dreams but he’s never there when I’m having nightmares.

So by then I was awake and we already hurrying to get out of there. But I had the wind knocked out of me and I was really hurt I was struggling to breathe. Then we got to the top of our hill and Balor was trying to sled me down, but the snow was too deep because we hadn’t gone sledding in a while. So I had to walk down and 1/2 way down I had to take a rest in the sled while Balor ran down to get my Mom and tell her what happened. Then I went home and laid down on the couch to watch T.V.

PS. My Jirachi knows the following moves: Rest, Draco Meteor, Snore, and Confusion and is currently at level 13.
