The Autistic College Student

The first thing that popped in my head, and the example I used in my paper, was Disney’s Robin Hood animated movie. It is one of my favorite movies. Robin and Maid Marion are foxes, Little John is a big bear who looks a lot like Baloo from The Jungle Book.

Dear Zoomers

Disclaimer: This might get pissy because people annoy me, and people who insult others while being incorrect really annoy me. My parents were Baby Boomers, AKA “Boomers.” I’m a Millennial/Gen Y. The annoying, “Okay, Boomer,” crowd is Gen Z, or “Zoomers,” NOT Millennials. Saying Millennials are just now reaching the age to join the workforceContinue reading “Dear Zoomers”

It’s a Numbers Game

I love numbers. That’s not to say I love math or am good at math. I enjoyed statistics when I understood it (if you attend college and are struggling with a subject, workshops are the best). I loved algebra, too. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I specifically love numbers divisible by five. ThisContinue reading “It’s a Numbers Game”

UpWork, Fiverr, and Freelancer

Which one is the best? There are so many job or “gig” brokers out there, it’s hard to find the right one. I have used UpWork, Freelancer, and Fiverr, and all three have pros and cons. But which one is best?  Is there a best? I will share my experience with each. UpWork I have beenContinue reading “UpWork, Fiverr, and Freelancer”

Content Mills

Like many, many writers struggling to gain experience and an online presence, I was a victim of more than one content mill. It happens to people in all industries and it’s a disgusting practice that will never go away, unfortunately. What’s a content mill? In a nutshell, content mills are basically brokers. They have theContinue reading “Content Mills”

A delicious, messy chicken Alfredo sandwich with a kick, topped with Cajun-seasoned, crispy shredded hash browns.

Sex and the City

I’ve been working on my site and trying not to freak out too much over the fact that one of my contracts will be completed soon. I really, really don’t want to go back to transcription. I like it well enough (eh, not really true anymore), but doing it for over 12 years has takenContinue reading “Sex and the City”

I Think My Mom is Picking on My Cat

I think Mom is driving my cat crazy! My youngest, Phineas, can’t see, and he goes around the house crying and looking at the ceiling. He keeps trying to get as close to the ceiling as possible; climbing on the couches and chairs and pawing at the wall. I told hubby that Mom must beContinue reading “I Think My Mom is Picking on My Cat”

New Disability Question on Applications

I have been filling out applications and submitting resumes like a son of a gun and I’ve noticed something. I use Indeed, LinkedIn, and ProBlogger for job searching. Some of the available jobs allow you to apply on those sites, or you follow a link and apply from the employer’s site. Anyway, several jobs IContinue reading “New Disability Question on Applications”

I’m a Hooker With a Heart of Gold

My mom used to crochet. My aunt was the arts and crafts gal, but Mom dabbled. Like any kid, I wanted to do what she was doing and, boy, did she try to teach me! Having a right-hander teach a left-hander (me) something isn’t the easiest! First, she had the brilliant idea to have meContinue reading “I’m a Hooker With a Heart of Gold”
