  • I live in Statesboro, Georgia
  • I was born on August 27
  • My occupation is A host at Olive Garden
  • I am Male

My name is Shawn. As a result of growing up autistic, I've decided upon my career path: go to college, and study marine biology. My reasoning for this is simple: the ocean is like autism, so deep, full of wonder and mystery, and we're constantly learning new things all the time about them. So it's a perfect fit in my book. (Of course, I'd also like to study other subjects so that, if being a Marine Biologist doesn't work out, then I've got a back-up plan [after all, it's better to have one and not need it, than to need one and not have it].)

Major details about me

  • I'm autistic, as I was born with Asperger's syndrome.
    • Because of this, my voice is somewhat deep and monotonous, giving the impression (to those who aren't familiar with how I talk), that I'm agitated, in a bad mood, etc.
  • I wear my heart on my sleeve, so it's very easy to hurt my feelings.
  • Growing up autistic and not knowing what it was until after I graduated high school, I was isolated and constantly bullied.
    • One time I was bullied to my breaking point and decided to try and take the coward's way out (suicide).
  • I take all mistakes and failures (even minor ones) very seriously.
  • I may be an adult, but I'm still a kid at heart, and I don't tolerate bullying or rudeness (especially directed at me).
  • Because I was bullied in my youth, I have very little to almost no self-confidence/self-esteem.
  • In addition to Asperger's I was also born with ADHD.
    • Because of this and my autism, I've been fired from two jobs already (when comes to jobs, I can only work part-time, and only through the help of "vocational rehab", as my mom fought for 4 years to get me SSI benefits, primarily to get me medicaid to help pay for my dr.'s appointments as well as my medication. If I work full-time, or accumulate $2,000+ in my bank account, they'll cut it immediately):
      1. My true first job was really "job training" at Goodwill to get my feet wet for the working world. And I did great.
      2. My first "real" job was as an usher at Carmike Cinema (a movie theater), but they had never worked with the autistic before and didn't understand certain things when working with me: because of ADHD, I'm constantly fully of energy and have to be moving to feel like I'm making progress of any kind, plus I take certain medications to help keep me tame, so to speak. But on my "last day" (I didn't know it would be at the time) I had to use the bathroom while my co-workers cleaned out a theater lobby (as my medications sometimes rile up my stomach), and by the time I was done, they finished cleaning the theater. My supervisor told me that I couldn't do what I did, and sent me home early. With all the big movies coming out I felt I would get more work, but never got called in. I don't remember how long I worked there, but it was a couple years ago, and I only went in on Saturdays & Sundays. Took 'em almost six months just to tell me & my family "he's fired", as they did it behind my back.
      3. My second job was as an employee at Wild Wing Cafe. I was doing good at first, but too much downtime had me bored (as the job I did most was folding napkins to wrap silverware in), and I didn't make a good impression on the CEO (she was a regular helper, and dressed just as casually as everyone else, so I couldn't tell the difference). Two months later, the CEO decided to fire me when my boss was having surgery (he liked me and tried to defend me so I could stay). When I went in to get my final paycheck, I asked her upfront if I was fired (for confirmation), and she replied I was. When I remarked on how uncool it was, she simply handed me my check and said "have a good rest of the day".
  • I'm currently 24 years old.

Miscellaneous details about myself

  • Celtic Tree: Hazel.
  • Celtic Zodiac: Salmon.
  • Chinese Zodiac: Pig.
  • Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff. (on Pottermore)
  • Ilvermorny House: Pukwudgie. (on Pottermore)
  • Nationality: American.
  • Patronus: Mink. (on Pottermore)
  • Primal Zodiac: Gazelle.
  • Wand: Laurel wood with a Unicorn hair core, 10 ¾" length and Quite Bendy flexibility. (on Pottermore)
  • Western Zodiac: Virgo.
  • Year born: 1995.
  • I never read the Harry Potter books, nor did I watch the movies, when I was younger. Recently, however, I became interested in the franchise (primarily due to the wizarding game Wizard101), and after watching a few clips, I have become a fan and purchased the blu-ray 8 film collection and 20th anniversary 7 book collection from Amazon.

A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She was not afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he was waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the police officer asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you are never alone.

Story from yugiohfan163 on Fanfiction.net:

I was walking around in a Target store, when I saw a Cashier hand this little boy some money back.
The boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old.
The Cashier said, "I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll."
Then the little boy turned to the old woman next to him: "Granny, are you sure I don't have enough money?"
The old lady replied: "You know that you don't have enough money to buy this doll, my dear."
Then she asked him to stay there for just 5 minutes while she went to look around. She left quickly.
The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.
Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to.
"It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for Christmas. She was sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her."
I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus would bring it to her after all, and not to worry.
But he replied to me sadly. "No, Santa Claus can't bring it to her where she is now. I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there."
His eyes were so sad while saying this. "My Sister has gone to be with God. Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister."
My heart nearly stopped.
The little boy looked up at me and said: "I told daddy to tell mommy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall."
Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me "I want mommy to take my picture with her so she won't forget me. "
"I love my mommy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister."
Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly. I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. "Suppose we check again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?"
"OK" he said, "I hope I do have enough." I added some of my money to his without him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some spare money.
The little boy said: "Thank you God for giving me enough money!"
Then he looked at me and added, "I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy could give It to my sister. He heard me!"
"I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mommy, but I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose."
"My mommy loves white roses."
A few minutes later, the old lady returned and I left with my basket.
I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started. I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind.
Then I remembered a local newspaper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl.
The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma.
Was this the family of the little boy?
Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the newspaper that the young woman had passed away.
I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial.
She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest.
I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed forever. The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him.

My views on religion

I prefer to follow my own rules, when it comes to religion. Don't get me wrong, I DO believe in the concepts of Heaven, Hell and the Afterlife, but, I REFUSE to either acknowledge one supreme God above all others or to adhere strictly to one religion; the latter is because adhering too strictly to one religion can limit your lifestyle and make it miserable (I don't remember when or where, but I once heard about a court case where some Doctors had to take legal custody of a baby away from its parents because their religion forbid the use of an operation that would've allowed the child to live), the former is because I REFUSE to believe that ONE God can do EVERYTHING by themself, without assistance. Thus, I walk my own path and choose which Gods I wish to acknowledge (I don't actively worship or pray to them, but I do acknowledge Gods and Goddesses from other religions, such as Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca, Ra, Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, and... well, you get the picture).
