My Special Interests: Tea

I have various special interests to share to you! I’ve previous mentioned or written posts about a few before. One example being Video Games.

I used to be a coffee/caffeine addict (and god forbid, Energy drinks). Coffee was the way to go. The taste, the smell, the caffeine rush! Tea was an occasional drink that was just there, expected from British Culture. The first time I tried to experiment with different tea’s was when I used to drink green tea in my teens. I was into Japanese Culture back then. Infusions were nothing but cheap hot juice. I didn’t start to experiment till I was in my twenties. Continue reading “My Special Interests: Tea”

My Special Interests – Series

Everyone has a special interest. It could be an obsession that could be great for specific jobs, or even just an interest that gives you an escape from reality, or to put it bluntly, your favourite thing at the moment.

I’ll be exploring my special interests to you, some more personal than others. I also will feature some special guests info-dumping their special interests. We all can have that moment of euphoria.

If anyone on the spectrum wants to be featured in this blog talking about their special interests, or want more information. Feel free to email me or DM via the Aut-ish Facebook! You can be featured as what you call yourself online or even anonymous. Everyone’s special interest is valid and I want to highlight all the different types. Not all autistic’s are obsessed with trains!
