Update on our lives so far

September 19, 2008

We haven’t been blogging, or reading other blogs, because now that we’re in school, we simply don’t have time/energy. We do other things when we do have free time because we need to recharge our mind for the next class, next homework assignment, or next whatever. 

I and The Integral feel as if we’ve been missing out on autistic advocacy, but we know that we can’t have our hands in every plate at once. Athena actually prefers that we aren’t blogging (at least I think she does, because it means more time for her to choose activities if she doesn’t have anything to say on the blog).

We’re mathematics/economics majors, and that means TONS of homework. Two math classes and one computer class (by force, not choice; it’s a requirement for graduation) this semester. Our parents told us to start out with just three courses for the first semester. We’re a little behind in our mathematics homeworks, but since we don’t have classes today, we will be going to the library to catch up. 

That’s all we have time or energy for, for now. Hopefully everyone we visit in blog world is doing alright……


Ivan, Athena, and The Integral



  1. I was one of those people you visited in the blog world tonight and I want to thank you. You expressed condolences on the death of my daughter, Seanna, who was just shy of 16 at the time (August 11, 2007) and happened to be severely autistic, and therefore the most interesting and special person in my whole world and totally, utterly, completely IRREPLACABLE. She was the most fun I ever had and the whole f’n world is DULL, DULL, DULL without her. “Normal” sucks. “Different” rules!

    Keep on going, honey. Make your way through life the best way you know how and just keep going without ever worrying about those people who can’t understand you.

    Know what I miss right at this moment? Talking to her hands and shoes. She wouldn’t go anywhere unless we first properly invited her hands and shoes to join us. “Hands! You coming? Come on hands! Let’s go! You too feet! Let’s go shoes!” God that was fun. It was hilarious when occasionally the left foot would get stubborn and refuse to join us until we begged. Life was good. Seanna was great. She made sense to me. The rest of the world didn’t matter.

    Thanks for reading along.

  2. Even a year and a half on, this entry rings true despite the fact that our circumstances are somewhat different: we are not in school at the moment. Too much overload crap and not being able to cope, was just one of the major problems we had trying to study. In fact this was likely THE biggest problem and continues to this day.

    RIP Seanna…….run along now, hands, feet, and shoes…….run along the forest paths in Heaven. God bless your soul.

    Andrea the Integral
