Changing Schedules (and Why I Don’t Like Them)

In my last blog, I explained my nerves for change when it came down to switching from an online format to a mostly face-to-face format. Today, I want to talk about something that happens to me more frequently at random times: changing schedules. No, I do not mean changing schedules when it comes to classes, […]

Am I Comfortable Going to Campus Again?

It was announced that University of Houston will be returning to mostly face-to-face classes in the fall, and while I am looking forward to the experience, I am a bit nervous with these guidelines. There are many changes that have been made since the beginning of the lockdown, and I just do not know if […]

The Best Ways to Study for Exams

So, it looks like ‘crunch time’ is finally hitting me. With final exams quickly approaching, I have been busy trying to create strategies to prepare for exams. As a person with Asperger’s, this is something that can be stressful for me, sometimes, especially when there are multiple exams in a week or even a day. […]

What Does Being Autistic Mean to Me?

The idea of having a friend sounds nice. In a perfect world, I would be pushing myself to meet new people and learn more about different cultures and backgrounds. University of Houston is one of the most diverse campuses in the United States, so it should be easy to find someone that shares common interests […]

How to Make it Through Spring Break

Spring Break (or any form of long break for that matter) is a time that many people spend to relax and enjoy themselves. It is typically unstructured and often a time to just hang out and chill. This is where it sometimes gets overwhelming for me. I set up a bit of a guide to […]

The World of Clubs and Organizations at University of Houston

In my last blog, I talked about my experiences with taking classes during today’s times, while also being autistic. Now, I want to focus on another aspect of college life: clubs and organizations. When you go to college, academics and participation are both huge parts of that experience. While I work extremely hard with the […]

What is College Like in a Pandemic Society?

One of the things I forget to realize is how quickly life goes by, especially during a pandemic. It feels that everything goes much faster in this new era for me. I realize how fortunate I am thanks to the support that I have with my family. About University of Houston To those who don’t […]
