My little cousin, he’s 7 or 8, i believe. I can’t remember right now. Anyway, he’s autistic. But when he was diagnosed, they told my cousin (his mother) that he wouldn’t be able to talk or really do anything because his autism was so severe. These past two years have just been so full of accomplishments for him. Last year he started talking. Nothing in particular but just talking instead of screaming. He’ll make noise and just talk to himself and count, etc. Towards the middle/end of last year, he started saying “mommy”. Something he NEVER said….at all. My cousin was so happy as was the rest of our family. I can just imagine how heartwarming it was for her to finally hear him call her mommy. This year, he started writing. Obviously, tracing letters, shapes, etc. He finally wrote his own name by himself..by tracing the letters. A month or so after that, he was able to write his own name without tracing. So fucking proud of that kid.
I get a text today from my cousin about one of his biggest accomplishments yet and when I check what it was, HE FUCKING MADE STUDENT OF THE MONTH! This little kid, who doctors said would most likely never speak or do anything for himself is fucking STUDENT OF THE FUCKING MONTH! My eyes got so fucking watery. I’m so fucking happy. I loooooooove him!!! check it out,
I want to make an impact like that on a child’s life. I can’t wait to become a teacher. <33
We’re stranded at the airport. ;( my moms boyfriend got lost getting here. In the process, my moms car (which he was driving) started fuming. He found out the car was leaking it’s antifreeze. Apparently you can’t or shouldn’t drive your car if that happens. So he’s at a gas station chilling. I called my baby to pick us up but I know she was tired so I decided to ask my other friend to pick us up…thank god she was awake. Lmao. I just can’t wait to see my babyyyy ;(
We are the dubstep generation, we are the ravers, we are the druggies, we are the gamers, we are the stoners, we are the cliches, we are the partyers, we are the douchbags, we are the perfectionists, we are the alcoholics, we are the idiots out running the cops, we are young, we are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.
