Today at work, a new girl had started and when she asked me my name and replied she said my name was really unique. I think we're going to be good friends, for the first time ever I found it really easy talking to somebody, we instantly got on and she didn't feel weird around me like most people do. She found my Autism interesting and asked me a lot about it, and how she should act around me as to make things easier which was really nice . She said she could use clay and turn it into pottery, which she said was a unique talent for her which she learnt from her grandad.
It got me to thinking about how unique people are, so I thought I would ask it here as well! So what is unique about you!?
Here's what's unique about me:
I love all my uniqueness, my colleague at work thought they were exciting as well. I can't wait to read about your uniqueness as well. I have to get back to work now. Have a lovely day! Bye .
How nice to make a connection with someone, I wish you the best in this.
Your hair sounds awesome! I'm into my comic books and you would fit in well with the super hero's in those :)
- I can make almost dead plants come alive - gardening's my thing
- I'm polite and kind (very rare in this day and age but is also my downfall as I'm often a target for bad people)
- I have quite old fashioned standards (how to behave in public, manners, the way I speak)
- I see things differently to the NT's I get told all of the time in many situations
Thank you so much! . I'm really pleased about this connection as well. When she came over and spoke to me, she was really kind and it didn't feel uncomfortable at all like she was forcing herself to speak. I'll see her again today at work so hopefully things will be the same as yesterday.
Ha ha thank you. It's like someone ran a paintbrush down the back of my hair .I love your uniqueness! . I like to do gardening, but I'm not very good at it sadly. It sounds like you're a master gardener!
Ooh your old fashioned standards sounds interesting! I can imagine you're one of a few with that. Most people are saying lol and stuff like that now. It must be really interesting to see how you speak and act.
I adore the 1940's, films, radio story's, clothing, memorabilia. I think that's why I have old fashioned values. For example please and thank you, holding doors, not going out in your pyjama's, treating people with respect, helping fellow neighbours. Very rare to see now a days.
All the best for today
I’m really pleased for you that you’ve made a connection with the new girl at work, I hope that you become good friends It’s really good that she was interested in and being considerate of your autism.
I don’t really know what is unique about me! It’s weird because I tend to think that I know myself quite well but faced with a question like this I’ve gone all ‘um, er, I don’t know’!
The name Astrid sounds Scandinavian, are your family originally from Northern Europe?
I think honestly is an autistic trait. I can be far too honest sometimes.
Hugs can be good, on occasion. Though my litluns seem to have a need to be permanently physically attached to me!
Your hair sounds beautiful. Do you mind me asking what causes it?
Hope you’re having a good day!
Wow that is so very interesting . My grandmother used to collect lots of vintage things, like old clothing and old records. Her home was like a museum! I agree it is rare to see anything like that now, I think there's not a lot of respect for everyone anymore.
Thank you! It went well. I hope you had a lovely day as well
Hello Kitsun . I hope you have had a lovely day so far!
Yes, she is really lovely! Her name is Courtney and again today I found talking with her really easy. She spoke clearly and slowly, and she didn't make eye contact so it was easier on me. She is such a nice person, very considerate .
Yes I orignate from Scandinavia. My mum said she and my dad chose the name Astrid when they first found out that they were expecting me, but sadly my mum's sister died from cancer shortly before I was born. Her name was Lora, so my parents extended my name to Astridlora.
Awh wow those are very cool unique traits! . Aww you must be a very good hugger if your children keep returning for more. My mum was also great at giving hugs and cuddles.
Yes of course, it is called poliosis. it is genetic, my mum had it as well, on the right side of her hair.
Have a lovely day.
