I’ve been struggling to quit smoking for quite awhile now, no matter what I did I just couldn’t do it. I’ve tried Chantix (gave me horrible reactions), the gum, lozenges, patches, everything. The cigarettes are just costing way too much, so my mom bought me a vaping kit.
I got this today. She got me two bottles of tobacco flavored juice (doesn’t taste like tobacco at all, I think I will try the cherry flavored juice next since I love anything cherry). I’m hoping this gets me off the cigarettes or at least helps me cut down.
I’ve been going through hell trying to find a decent host. I went with one host who had tons of positive reviews, but everything I was experiencing was negative. I wasn’t aware that my WordPress was using up so many resources, the hosting company kept trying to fix the problems but it just wasn’t happening. My site was just not running. I had to ask for a refund and it took some time to get them to do it. I won’t mention what host it was because I don’t want any backlash, so e-mail me if you want to know.
I found a decent sized reseller for a decent price. Now I have plenty of space, hopefully. I’m also offering free hosting for personal blogs, so if you’re interested, go here for more information.
I want to thank Kya for hosting me as long as she did, and Lisa for donating to help get hosting started.
Last but not least, I am selling the domain hello-kitty.net. If you’re interested, e-mail me.
I signed up for Google Apps to use Gmail with a domain I had purchased. They gave me a 30 day free trial which was great. I did notice though, that the next billing date would not work for me. So, I contacted them via chat to ask if the billing date could be changed. They said it couldn’t, so I stopped using the account. About 1 or 2 days later, I got a phone call from Ireland (yes, Ireland) from someone who works at Google Apps. I wasn’t too happy about this call because my cell phone plan is for calls within the United States. I declined the call, and they left a message. I really hope I don’t get charged for that call. I don’t understand why they didn’t have someone from the United States to call me.
It’s like my internet bill, it’s always due on a date I can’t pay. I called them and they told me they can’t change the billing date, but I have a 10 day grace period. It always ends up getting paid 2 days late.
I’m back to using Yahoo mail. On another note, I know it has seemed that I dropped off the face of the blogging/internet world for awhile, and I admit that I did. I back to using my Twitter and Instagram. You can also find me on Yahoo Messenger (hellokittyerin).
As some of you may know (or don’t) I’m on the autistic spectrum. I was diagnosed in my teens. When I was a kid, doctors couldn’t figure out why I had limited social skills, sensory issues, etc. Because of this, I wasn’t provided with the therapy I needed. I often wonder if I would be better if they had diagnosed me sooner.
There are a few things that bother me about autism. One is that the main focus seems to be on autistic children, and not autistic adults. While I think it’s important for children with autism to get the help and support they need, adults need that too. After all, the children with autism will grow up to become autistic adults.
I’m in a Facebook group for adults with Asperger’s, and a majority of the people there have said they would not want a cure if one was ever discovered. Personally, I would take the cure in a heartbeat. They say autism/Asperger’s is a part of who they are and they wouldn’t want to change it. Yes, autism is a part of who I am, but I find it to be a burden. I still have problems socializing, reading body language, hypersensitivity to lights, sounds, touch, and smells. I never really had many friends, probably because of the impaired social skills. I’ve tried to make friends, but it tends to backfire. Most autistics want acceptance, and I do too. It’s really hard to get people to understand what it’s like to be on the spectrum. They really have no idea because they don’t experience it daily.
I wanted to share one of my favorite videos about Asperger’s:
Maybe this video will give you a better understanding of it.
Edit: I’m no longer updating/using my other blogs hosted on Tumblr. I forgot my login information so I’m unable to delete them. This will be the only blog I will have.
I know I’m a bit late, but I hope this year is better because 2015 was by far my worst year ever. Unfortunately, things from 2015 are still lingering into the new year, like the legal stuff. My next court date is February 2nd. I’m pretty nervous about it. I’m still having issues with my apartment, I wish the exterminator could get rid of these damn rats! I hate them! He’s coming on Tuesday (he comes every Tuesday). Maintenance came a few days ago in search of access points (holes) to see how they’re getting in, and they said probably from behind the stove. So they pulled the stove out and patched some holes behind there. Still didn’t help. Everybody is stumped, they don’t know how they’re getting in.
I was also pretty upset when I logged into my bank account a few days ago to see unauthorized charges. Someone got my debit card information and made 3 donations to some charity in Pakistan. They were only for $0.99, but still. I wasn’t able to dispute the charges yet because they were still pending on my bank’s end. They closed the card and I have a new one coming, which is going to take at least a week.
Anyway, as you can see, I put up a new theme. Finally! It’s pretty simple but I like it.
