Welcome to my blog!

Hello, Neurotypicals and fellow Spectrumites! My name is Micaela Ellis and this is my blog! In this blog, I will share my experiences as I travel around the world with my family. During our travels, we  will  homeschool and also connect with people all over the world who are affected by autism. I will try to post weekly during my travels. I can’t promise to post too often because I am extremely ADHD (for real) and I also don’t want to bore people with too many posts.

In preparation for our travels, we are cleaning out our house. This can be kinda hard for me because I am conscious about our environment, and I don’t want to throw away things that can be recycled. Environmental activism is a special interest of mine (one of my autie “fixations”), so I get stressed out when my mom or dad tells me to throw something away, like a piece of fabric, that could be recycled. This is causing some arguments in our house. At this very moment, we are having a disagreement about the fast fashion industry and the waste it produces. When I have to throw things away, I remind myself that this is a lesson I am learning to not bring so much stuff into our house.

Even though it’s hard to get organized and prepared, I am looking forward to traveling! I am excited to study the history and cultures of different regions. I’m also excited about meeting new people and eating new foods; I want to try different dark chocolates around the world. Dark chocolate is an obsession of mine but it’s not a special interest. A special interest looks kind of like an obsession, but, for a lot of autistic people, a special interest is a constant part of  life and provides thoughts to retreat into when the world is too stressful. Dark chocolate is not a constant part of my life, though it is a constant part of my backpack.

Thanks for reading my blog! I’ll keep you posted on my upcoming adventures!
