Favourites

I have Asperger's. My mind swims with brilliant ideas all the time. Like an untended oak tree. Growing and expanding into greater heights of knowledge and whatever counts as wisdom. I love to learn and study. Since I have so few friends, it helps keep me focused on my goals in writing and music. Hopefully one day I'll become published. That's why I say to many people: Don't count out adults with Autism and Asperger's. With careful tending, we can become great oak trees whose limbs and branches help propel the world forward.

The-Port-of-Riches
Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?

C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
