well, hello there.
you found my “about” page! look at you go.
My name is Lucy Kross Wallace and I am a writer, autist, aspiring polyglot, Stanford student, Julien Baker fan, plus a lot of other things, too.
I was given access to ideas, pens, and paper from an early age. It’s a dangerous combination.
I was diagnosed with autism at age 18, which was a little like watching the video game tutorial 18 levels in. Since then, I have been writing about autism to share my experience and help others make sense of theirs.
Keep scrolling if you like lists.
things I do
- write about autism and associated curiosities
- put words together and see what happens
- try to make sense of my experiences and maybe help others understand theirs
- spend way too long choosing stock photos for my posts
- the dishes, occasionally
things I like
- writing so ferociously that I scorch holes in my keyboard cover
- that quote about how learning is lighting a fire, not filling a bucket
- Dutch braids
- Russian figure skating
things I don’t like
- canned tuna
- incorrect use of the verb “to resonate” (e.g., “I resonate with that”)
- group projects that you have to take seriously (I don’t mind ironic ones, though)
- social media
- sudden changes
- small talk (unless it’s in Russian)
