Now

I live in St. Johns, Oregon, since November 2018, where I’ve started my fifty-first year of being alive. I’m in my fourth year as a diagnosed autistic and no closer to feeling like anything other than a failure and a fuck-up. I don’t know what’s going on with my health, and I don’t especially look forward to finding out. This blog continues to be a going concern, for better or worse, for whatever it’s worth. I’ve still not found a psychoconsultant both knowledgeable about adult autism and covered by my insurance. I’m finally selling print-on-demand t-shirts to express your quiet disgruntlement (and other things).

I’ve started reading Lurking: How a Person Became a User by Joanne McNeil; I’m still reading Waste Tide by Chen Qiufan; and I’ve finished reading Trauma, Stigma, and Autism: Developing Resilience and Loosening the Grip of Shame by Gordon S. Gates. I’d started reading Building and Dwelling: Ethics for the City by Richard Sennett, but the McNeil came through on NetGalley so that’s on pause. I’ve finished five 📚 so far this year, with fourteen waiting in my queue.

This week on 📺 I’m watching Doctor Who, 9-1-1: Lone Star, Batwoman, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Magicians, Nancy Drew, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, The Good Place, The Bold Type, and Seven Worlds One Planet (which started Saturday but I forgot). I’m also continuing with The Blacklist, where I’m about to start season three. Picard premieres this week but I can only budget for CBS All Access by doing 🖖 binge months.

What is a “now page”?

Most websites have a link that says “about”. Most websites have a link that says “contact”. So a website with a link that says “now” goes to a page that tells you what this person is focused on at this point in their life. — Derek Sivers
