What’s going on world? I’m Veronica: a 33 year old (high functioning) autistic woman located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I’m currently a food service worker on Fort Bragg, the largest military base in the United States. It’s pretty awesome to work with a bunch of soldiers. They come from all over the world. Some are nice, some are not so nice. They are human after all 🙂 I even met one from Africa! So amazing! Looking forward to meeting more!

As far as my living situation, I currently live alone just 10 minutes away from Fort Bragg and enjoy every second of it. It’s probably the best living situation to be in at this point due to the pandemic. Yes, I have been fully vaccinated, but still wear my mask whenever I’m in public. This COVID 19 situation is no joke!

Family: cannot imagine my life without them. I have a twin sister named Jessica (also autistic), a younger sister named Moët, a younger brother named Leiquan, and an older brother named William. My mother Denise is the mold that keeps us together. The family dog Cooper lives with my mother, younger sister and twin sister. The rest of us are living independent lives. None of us have children at the moment.

Other than writing, I absolutely love makeup! It’s art to me. It makes me feel sparkly throughout my day, even on days that aren’t good. It’s fun to be able to create different looks. It’s like wearing a different outfit each day. Any store that has a makeup aisle, I’m there! Ulta, Walmart, CVS, Sephora, MAC, even Dollor Tree. Love it, love it, love it! Okay I’m done LOL 😂

My blogging experience: I began this blog about 2 years ago. At the time I was experimenting with different topics in an effort to find a niche that’s my forte. The only niche that keeps coming back to me is optimism. To be more specific: I’m talking about optimism about life as an autistic woman. In my heart, I know that everything is going to be alright, despite living in a body that is difficult for anybody to control; let alone comprehend.

Yes there will be difficult days, but light will still remain at the end of the tunnel. That is what drove me to have my blog focus on the optimistic side of me 🙂 I look forward to posting and hope to inspire many!

  1. I am so excited to find your blog. I am 49 years old and recently have discovered that I most likely have ASD. It is a bit scary, but mostly a relief since now all the pieces fit. I have my own website/blog at gatorlizard.com. I plan to follow your blog. Thanks for this.


    • Thank you for replying! It means a lot! It’s a relief to me to know that there are more autistic adults out there then one may believe. It’s hard to live with, but it’s what makes each of us unique. May I have the link to your blog?
