As we go to work out in the gym, people wonder how they need to move forward and plan not be distracted by other things outside of their physical activities. For me, I usually work out at the gym with my iPod when I get out of the house and listen to various artists from iTunes. But when I do work out at home, I switch from an iPod to my phone, an iPad, or a preference of both devices. Not only I use iTunes from both my iPod and iPad, but I also use Spotify or YouTube where I have access to listen to a wide arrangement of songs, various genres, and different singers, groups, or orchestras from the past or present that keeps me moving forward. So, here is a selected list of artists, groups, or musicals that I usually listen when going out in the gym or work out at or around home.
For as long as I can remember and experience, having Asperger's syndrome was a personal challenge that I was facing to accept at certain stages in my life. Beyond learning new things, repeating stuff that I usually say and do in a regular everyday basis, and trying to be as more cognitive and mentally competitive as those that did in a more advanced level, going through those physical and mental experiences, from childhood to adulthood, were as easy but difficult to process. However, having autism and going through everyday life doesn't mean that it would effect my plans to be as successful throughout my current studies in college, a future plan for a career establishment, and enter a doorway to create relationships.
In a pandemic we have never faced since the Spanish Influenza, the handling of Covid-19 that was poorly accounted by our current administration has scourged over the entire country and even worldwide. The U.S. has lost over 230,000 lives from the coronavirus, in which we have given confidence to the science expersts and major pharma companies to work on vaccines and treatments for laboratory test experiments while we are gradually wearing masks and follow CDC guidelines. Schools cancelled and have gone virtual. Some schools reopen without any handling how it will affect children getting in as well as transmission of the virus they are unaware of. Federal, state, and local governments, agencies, and institutions are going through phases of reopening once the virus handling is negotiated. Worse of all, we have witness masses of gatherings and protests that has torn the country into pieces since the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other African-American lives taken by corrupt authorities like the police force. Day after day, week after week, and month after month I have never seen anything that shocked me in my entire life. It's hard getting a job because staff is cut short and hours are limited. Your financial aid ends after being forced to have your name taken off of your parent's tax returns. And, student debt is still rising and it's not only a national tragedy, but a strategy that dismantles anyone involved in that particular debt.
In this Halloween during a national pandemic, it is difficult to express how we cannot go out of the house and do our tradition of treat or treating. But, there is nothing wrong with dressing up from what you have available from your wardrobe. This is my first official post on Vocal that I like to share with you.
