June 2016 was a crazy month for me (29,F): I completed my part-time masters, became self-employed and discovered that I might be on the autism spectrum. Pretty much in that order. Well, they say ‘things always happen in threes’, right?

Seriously though, this has been an emotional rollercoaster of discovery that I can barely keep up with. I’ve started this blog to help me figure everything out, keep interesting things in one place and hopefully ‘meet’ some like-minded aspierational people…

For once I was not stuck on what to call this blog (I’m known to get fixated/stuck on the little details that stop me from ever getting started on things I do actually want to do). The name ‘loony genius’ comes from letters in my real name, which I now find wonderfully apt!
