An Aspergian’s Week In Review

where-im-at-spillwords

This week has been a busy one for your Maryland poet. Firstly, I’ve been published on SpillWords for a THIRD time. My poem “Where I’m At”, takes a look at what I’ve gone through lately and why I am the person I am today.

Here’s an excerpt, and you can read the rest here (http://spillwords.com/where-im-at/)

I hate exercise

because no girl wants me anyway

so what’s the point in losing weight

I eat too much

because I love and hate…

Secondly, I was nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award, this time my fellow spectrumite in Marisa Ulrich. She’s a regular on my blog, and I’m grateful for her contributions, as well as her own outlook from an autistic life(https://brokencookiessite.wordpress.com/2016/12/19/they-gave-me-a-mystery-blogger-award/).

So, what is the Mystery Blogger Award?

The “Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion. Created by Okoto Enigma.

Rules:

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  5. Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  6. You have to nominate people
  7. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question
  9. Share a link to your best post(s)

 

So, three things about me? For one, I love cats. They are the sweetest animals, and they provide a TON of entertainment. I live with two, and there’s nothing like getting licked on the face to start the day. They also steal your food, if you let them. Secondly, Fall Out Boy is my favorite band. “Immortals” was the very first song I listened to of theirs, and ever since I’ve been hooked. “Infinity On High” is my favorite album, and while I listen to This Ain’t A Scene the most, I can’t decide between Dance, Dance/Tell That Mick He Just Made My List Of Things To Do Today/Disloyal Order Of Water Buffaloes/Grand Theft Autumn as my favorite. Patrick Stump has grown a lot on me. I’m not a big fan of his voice early on, but he’s improved in recent albums.

I’m nominating https://myrandomrantings.com/ for this award. Her poetry is outstanding, and I really enjoy the hope that emanates from her words. I hope you’d check her out.

Here’s the link to my best post (in my opinion), one of my older posts. It didn’t get a lot of likes then, but…https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/the-mess-of-it-all-a-poem-of-loving-remembrance/

  1. Oooo! I love Infinity On High!…Although it’s actaully my 2nd favorite Fall Out Boy album-Save Rock and Roll is my number one favorite.
    And I too agree that Patrick’s voice in the beginning years needed some work, but it’s hard to hold it against him when you think about what things were like at that point at time: FOB’s first years were also Patrick’s 1st tries at singing. He never had time to try to work on his vocals beforehand-he was just told to jump right in. Additionally, it seems like Patrick was also a bigger victim of puberty than many fangirls would like to admit-he did start at 17 after all, so it would make sense that his voice was also still developing, although in interviews he still has his deeper voice even then…Who knows! lol I’m just glad he got better,

    I’m babbling lol

          1. The biggest thing about Save Rock and Roll that I think makes it indefinitely my album is the amount of charge and fight packed into the album. It’s just so….I guess hard to describe lol…..I guess you could say energized.

          2. My favorites off that album are Phoenix, My Songs (idk why, but I really like it even if it’s not the best lyrically), Just One Yesterday (another big big surprise- I was not expecting to like it), and Save Rock and Roll

            My least favorite is defintily Rat-a-tat. It just doesn’t work at all for me
