My 4.5 minute LeonieWrites vlog, recap and reflecting a bit more at the blog.

In this blog post:
– back to text commentary speedpaint
– commentary, youtube analytics & video making woes
– autism thoughts: masking, not looking autistic enough, scripting, “selective” mutism, burnouts, jobs/workplace accommodations, social faux pas, friendships & intimacy
– social media & personal update

I’m either deadpan staring or looking away ;D

Please I don’t want to stare into each other’s souls :’)

I did a bunch of online autism tests!

I go reflect how I currently manage my hyperfocus, rejection sensitive dysphoria, executive function struggles, attention & emotional dysregulation with my inattentive, autistic brain 🧠

SuperLeonieMode 324 / Happy Love day with Kirby and me! LeonieUpdate, adjusting my blog posts (why and how) & patreon, reflecting on relationships, experiencing pain, guilt and loneliness as an autistic and interesting finds in this blog post!

LeonieBear says goodbye 2019, personal lessons of the year, rambling about outside adventures and Frozen 2.

Ignore social media and group social things sometimes, focus on occasional 1 to 1 catch ups & activities with my few, kind friends, do what I can with job hunting, freelancing and retreat into my bubble to learn and take care of myself.

Ramble!
I’m selective because trying my best to learn for every individual I meet can leave me too exhausted and burnt out to care anymore :’) This probably cuts me out from many potential bonding moments with kind company because I’m too aloof, tense, tired and socially overloaded 🙁
