My Calming Secret & My Autistic Obsession

I like making name lists.  I don't know why.  I like it.  I just like names and it really calms me down to write lists of names.



In the last few days, I've written 328 lines that look like the above snapshot.

I know it's random.  I know it's weird.  But names calm me down.  I've been making lists of names since before I started grade school and I've always found that they ground me.  I can write a name list for hours and hours on end but now I'm trying to limit myself to only a few hours in the morning.  It's worked pretty well so far.  I'm not too stressed at the moment so I can manage that pretty well.
