How to be me at a party:

Step 1: Stand around awkwardly for an hour, wincing at the noise and accidentally being in everyone’s way.

Step 2: Start an interesting conversation (or string of conversations).

Step 3: Oops, where did the past three hours go? 😛

Then head home and take time to recharge!

P.S. I write from my personal experience as an autistic. What I share is not a substitute for advice from an autistic medical professional. Also, some of my opinions have changed since I first wrote them.
