All I Want To Do Is Be More Like Me And Be Less Like You…

One of my favorite songs by Linkin Park was always Numb. Partly because it is yet another song that really helps me with my diagnoses, especially autism and when it comes to the ignorance of people or society. Here is a beautiful and very well done cover by MGK of Numb by Linkin Park. MGK is a rapper and when honestly the cover blew me away the first time I heard it as I have only heard him sing in few main chorus etc. Also the take and mood of the cover felt very different from him. I was impressed and am listening to it again. Think I will also go on a much needed Linkin Park binge today. πŸ™‚ I have been listening to a lot of LP lately and not just because of the passing of Chester, but since a teen Linkin Park was always in my top playlists and one of my favorite bands. I will forever be a fan and my heart goes out to Chester’s family, friends and beloved fans. How many more people have to suffer or take their own lives for mental illness to get the suppport it needs, end the stigma and we can be more open about it? It is astonishing to me how easily society still dismisses it and is so very ignorant towards it. With suicide rates rising, school shootings rising, other violent acts (I am not saying just because you are mentally ill that makes you a violent individual, it does NOT. But those who act out in such violent ways and killing human beings, these people are very mentally ill. and it is apart of the stigma I think we do have to admit and fix. These people need support and help too.) but what will it take for us to get society to pay attention?

Anyways rant over…here is the beautiful cover by MGK πŸ™‚

And to give you some kind of an idea of MGK’s original style and music if you are interested and why the cover took me back a bit. xD

Another song that has helped me through a lot especially in my twenties. ❀



I am a 30-year-old female living life on the autism spectrum and still trying to find my place in the world. I have other associated disorders or mental illnesses such as OCD, anxiety (generalized and social) and a history of depression to name a few. I love writing and have been writing different styles for as long as I can remember. Like most people who have a strong passion for writing I started writing stories and wrote in a journal in grade school. I remember specifically purchasing my first diary/journal that had a lock with my cousin when I was around 10 year-of-age. I was very excited to start writing in it as it was the first fanciest and most formal writing tool I owned. I think that was when my writing journey really began as I started to write daily. Some of my main goals for this blog is to write about autism, it's associated disorders and my life in hopes to help others. To spread awareness and educate in hopes to end some of the stigmas society has attached to things mental illness and autism. To meet like minded bloggers or be inspired by other writers. Other than that I will post or share anything that is of interest or pops into my head. As I grow older, the more I understand about myself and experience life I find myself wanting to seek a further diagnoses or a reevaluation. That is part of the reason why I am opening a new blog here and the reason for my new found blog name. So I hope you all will join me on my continued journey and new discoveries. My diagnoses are not all who I am so here are some random facts about myself. Some of my hobbies besides writing include music, The Sims 3, Xbox, Netflix, scrapbooking and the outdoors. I have a very strong passion for music. It is like my drug/medicine/obsession and you may catch me from time to time preaching it like a religion. Apologies in advance I am married to a man who is not on the spectrum, but he is as equally as amazing and I am insanely in love with him. Like my rants about my life and music you will also hear a lot about him. I was born and raised in Canada who recently seeked Permanent Residence in the USA, so I am no longer an illegal alien. Although I am still an 'alien' tbh. I say imo and tbh too much. (imo = in my opinion/tbh = to be honest) They are also probably the only two abbreviations you will catch me using as one of my many pet peeves are people who 'typ like dis' The only thing that probably makes me a stereotypical Canadian is my obsession with hockey. I am a very organized person. However, it is normally with things that don't really matter in life such as my files on my computer that are organized in folders, within folders... I often can be perceived as rude at first until you get to know me. I have a huge imagination. Some of my favorite animals are dogs, cats, monkeys, penguins and elephants. I prefer animals to humans tbh. Basically I am another complexed human being like everyone else trying to find her way through life and I welcome you all to my newly found blog. This description is subject to change at anytime as my blog grows, I add more facts about myself or for whatever reason I feel fit. ~ My Authentic Mind

    1. Thank you so much for the reblog! Yes it’s a beautiful cover and also amazing song by Linkin Park. Chester was one of the many talented artists we lost last year. As a person who grew up listening to Linkin Park, Soundgarden, David Bowie etc the last year or so has been really sad. I still have a hard time listening to Audioslave, Soundgarden etc after Chris Cornell shockingly took his own life. When I heard about Chester (about a few days too late cause I no longer keep up with music gossip) my heart sank. It was a hard year in music and covers like this we can appreciate I think.

      Another video or two videos actually that circled last year with Chris Cornell of Soundgarden’s suicide that made me cry was these two.

      Chester Bennington singing Hallelujah by Lenard Cohen beautifully and shows just how much talent he really had. I cried so hard. :/ It’s rare music makes me this like devastated. lol

      Chris Cornell’s daughter who also has a very gorgeous voice and One Republic’s lead singer performs Halleujuah as well following her dad’s death. You could hear the emotion in her voice. You could tell how devastated and heart broken she was and held back I think because of it. Yet made it so beautiful at the same time.
