This video was created just before the 2016 Summer Olympics, but it still brings tears to my eyes. I watch it whenever I feel beaten down or not at 100%. Regardless of what obstacles you face, have the courage to rise above them and push on. Champions rise back up.
I am finally at a point where I can start trying to get this kite in the air! First things first, though: I tested the Core Questions out on myself and was pretty amazed at what I got from it (along with how they changed as I went). Now I want to test them out on others to see if they are valid. These questions are the heart of what I do and what future workshops/classes may look like, so it is very important that they are asked correctly and can be understood. See below for info on how you can participate. If you choose not to, that’s fine, but do me a huge favor and pass the call on! 🙂
The SPARC program has an introductory class in the works! Before I offer it, though, I will need about 10 beta testers. The testers can be kids, teens, or adults, neurotypical or on the spectrum (but verbal), and available by phone, Skype, or in person (FYI, I’m in the Bay Area, California). I’ll just ask you some questions to test the validity of the workshop’s focus (there are about 4-6 questions, depending on age). Ideally, I want it ready by the end of the year at the latest. If you’re interested in helping out, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Also, here is the link to SPARC’s new Facebook page, which just launched.
Oh, and the picture is a little hint about the workshop…
I have followed this YouTuber for awhile, mostly because he is hilarious (and has an amazing voice!) and is a great distraction from life at times. Every now and then, though, he comes out with an amazing vlog like this one. You can start at about the :30 mark to avoid a few programming things. It’s almost 9 minutes long, but totally worth it.
There is a bit of language, but not much. Also, if you like gamers on YouTube, he’s a very entertaining one. His name is Markiplier.
