Hello World, and it’s another birthday for me today, my 25th in fact and I don’t know why but I feel that this one is very significant…25 is a quarter of 100…that is if I make it to 100 but the point is, that’s a quarter come and gone….I am now entering the next quarter of my life 25 to 50 and I’m not so sure how to feel about that because it’s like the first door of my life is about to close, lock away for all time and the next one is about to open, the next stage of my life which if all goes to plan will have been get married and start a family of my own

Here are a list of my achievements from 0-25

  • Been Born- 25th June 1990
  • Nursery
  • Learnt to Walk…took me a while ok
  • Primary School
  • Secondary School
  • High School
  • Discovered I had autism 2003
  • College
  • First Job
  • University
  • 2013- Short Story Published
  • Got Engaged
  • Second Job
  • Third Job

Basically I was born, went to school, college and University and got a job as well as engaged to the love of my life, can’t wait for the wedding. I did other stuff and all that but that was the main stuff. It feels good to remember what you’ve been up to in the past, what you’ve learnt from it and what your planning to do next

How many days have I been alive up to this point?

I am 9130 days old. that actually doesn’t sound so bad, I thought it’d be a bigger number then that…not even been alive for 10,000 days yet

Which is 1304 weeks and 2 days.

That’s 24 years and 364 days, including 6 leap years*,
or 24 years, 52 weeks and 0 days.

In other words, that’s 300.03 months.
Therefore, you are 25 years old.

Countries I’ve visited

  • Isle of Man
  • Spain
  • France
  • Tenerife
  • America
  • Belgium
  • Holland
  • Italy

I love birthdays in a way, it’s nice to celebrate the day you put your Mother through agony for goodness knows how long and entered the world, screaming your head off but we all did it…presents, people wishing you a happy birthday…it’s all nice and you only get one a day so make the most of it. One of the only days I get a brand new game! apart from Christmas and Easter, can’t wait to play Batman tomorrow

Probably the most important moment of this time was when I was diagnosed with Aspergers in 2003, It was tough finding out that I had Autism because it changed the game and the way I looked at life because now a label was their, never to be removed but I feel now that it is no longer an issue for me, it doesn’t affect my life in any way whatsoever but you wish that if I was like this just a few years before hand then who knows?? Maybe I could have gotten a great mark at University and made more friends because I would have spoken more and appeared to be more interesting than I was perceived as but hey…things happen for a reason, right? But I do have friends, a great family and a fiance that loves me for me….can’t see where I really went wrong.

I have always wanted to try to like life better for people with Autism so more people just understand what it is and understand how difficult the most basic things can be for someone with Autism and maybe be a bit more kinder about it, one can hope anyway…I’ll continue to write about the condition, using real life experience and who knows…maybe someone will get inspired by it and feel that they can have a good life…if they just look past the stereotypes and get out into the world…screw labels!

I wish myself a Happy Birthday and another good 25 years on this Blue Marble..soon to be followed by little footsteps, I’m sure being a parent will be so much fun…
