  • I’m aware that many tell me to share my emotions and open up. However, it’s not as easy. Opening up also means sharing and telling it how it is. The problem with my method, in keeping things silent and not speaking about it, makes things messy for me. Feelings matter… unfortunately, that’s something even I am working on to be better at it.

    Positive content is something I always try to produce when I can. Maybe it’s my feelings coming into play here… but.. if anyone is viewing this… Whether it’s my colleagues.. boss.. or… anything. I…. feel ashamed for sharing how I’m feeling. I know being happy is what we are about, but… it’s difficult.

    My blogs are, of course, almost finished, at least the ones that are currently edited for approval. Just wanted to confirm with everyone who was waiting for them in the meantime. I am glad to be part of this team.

    I’ll update for Part III at a later date. We’ll play it by ear. đź‘Ť

    This past week, the crew at Autisticana visited Spencer’s at the Smithtown Mall. The store is very interesting because it has shirts and clothing based on popular movies, anime, and musicians. It also has paraphernalia relating to weed, occultism, and magic, sex toys, and candy. They even sell manga and cookbooks. We all took pictures relating to our interests there.

    In 1947, Spencer’s started off in Easton, PA, as a mail-order catalog with tons of novelty merch by Max Adler and his brother Harry, the namesake being the former’s middle name Spencer. In 1963, three years after Harry left, Spencer evolved into a brick-and-mortar retail store with its first location in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, at the city’s mall. Since then, Spencer has grown to 650 locations in the US, and Canada within malls, especially on Long Island, such as Hicksville Broadway.

    In 2001, Spencer’s Gifts launched its e-commerce website, allowing customers to shop for its products online. The website has become important to the company’s sales and marketing strategy.

    Today, Spencer’s operates over 600 stores in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, offering a wide range of products, including clothing, accessories, home decor, and novelty items. The company is known for its edgy and irreverent products and is known for catering to a younger, more alternative demographic.

    Despite competing with other retailers in the same space, Spencer’s has continued to grow and expand its business. With a focus on innovation, creativity, and customer engagement, the company has stayed relevant and popular with its target audience.

    Spencer’s has been a must for the newest trends, tees, body jewelry, home dĂ©cor and more that celebrate our slogan “life is a party”and we are making it fun. Known for being a pioneer in sexual wellness, call us what you want, but we are here for all communities to celebrate. We are committed to our guests’ uniqueness and their desire for rebellious, buzzworthy products that represent a unique lifestyle while offering an escape from the ordinary.

    Spencer’s had opened in 2003 under new management, raising the bar and continuing its untraditional retail journey. The stores have changed, but when they set out on the path of becoming an industry leader in a subtle shift from Spencer Gifts to Spencer’s, this will always be true to the roots of their love for the pride of the effort they put.

    They have done a new and better look, but never forgot the history because some of the trends are as old as time. Spencer’s, which continues to lead the market with one of the oldest continually operating stores in North America and nearly 670 locations throughout the United States and Canada, proudly enshrines the brand as cultural staples. Giving back is a key obligation of Spencer’s, and we have been increasing the commitment over the last few years.

    Since 2020, the whole partnership with the ACLU has generated nearly a million dollars to help protect civil rights for individuals. Additionally, since 2008 our associates have been fierce advocates, joining in on the battle against cancer by fundraising on behalf of three organizations focused on fighting youth cancer through the non-profit Boobies Make Me Smile. They’ve raised more than 10,5 million dollars to support the Young Survival Consortium, Stupid Cancer and Fxck Cancer that are working on prevention, education and help for young people with cancer and showing the reality of helping young women that could possibly have breast cancer and knowing the facts of the support they need when their going through tough times.

    Everyone takes on Spencer’s:

    Scott likes that Spencer’s has cool stuff, especially sex products.

    Danielle didn’t care for Spencer’s Costumes

    Jackson loved Spencer’s having been at that location and Hicksville’s multiple times. He loved taking the Stepbrothers photo with Scott:

  • The same weekend that I went to Christine’s Weekend House Upstate and I dreamed about the time when I was on month Business Trip to England because it has the highest percentage of viewers overseas and I have some of my personal interests and related to my expression like I wish that I get to do outside of my home country. It was during the month of May 2025, I was on a 1 month experience living in England from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Leicester to London and Southampton.

    The 1st week, I spend my first full week in Liverpool to discover life and piece of history to learn their culture which I visited a couple of Musems and discovered the brand new Bradley Docks Stadium of Everton which is by the water and Anfield to discover the history of Liverpool FC from the Glory Years and their current Champions soviviners epscailly the Premier League Championship Throphy of the 19/20 Season. I stopped by to some cafe’s before and after my seminars about the international support of Autism in the UK and US because Autisticana has the most viewers outside of the United States. I eventually took took 1 day in Manchester to discover interesting spots which i was able to visit the Studios of iTV to see the set of Coronation Street. On the 2nd Week of England, I visited in Leeds, from Monday Night to Friday during the day and decide to take drive and dropped off my first rental car and took the train and cabs at local ranks. When I got to my appartment, I had a very special friend name Patrick and he is on the autism spectrum. He really enjoyed the life of England and became a huge fans of my blogs which I started with Leeds United getting secured in the Premiership against the Brentford Bees, especially the greatest comeback against Bournemouth.

    Patrick wanted to give me the best surprise for my Tuesday night that he give me an extra ticket for me to see Leeds United against Nottingham Forest. On the other hand, his mate which Ryan Colloney is close friend of him and had 2 more of friends which Finley and Conor which he has his other mates that would make it to the match like Tyler, James and like the mates that I Would like to have on Tuesday Nights back at home. Patrick works at the cafe by the city Centre with the Taxi Rank which he works on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday depending on football day for the local. When I got to the Marriott which I didn’t realize that he lives around the area and always walk in the area.

    I was so pumped to watch Leeds United play on a Tuesday Night at Eland Road which Leeds. Before I got ready I FaceTime my mom to check how everything is doing and heard Danica my Parrot who makes noises as usual so I talked to her about the weather was gorgeous outside and it was the same temperature as my holiday while it’s mostly cloudy in England and it’s mostly sunny back at home. I went to Patrick’s House to take the light rail to the stop where they always hangout on Tuesday Nights but this time the wanna walk to Eland Road to experience the moment and Leeds United has been the best team in the League outside of the main 6 clubs included Newcastle United. Liverpool FC has won the Premier League Title during the 2023/2024 while it was nice to bring back to fans watch the moment in person which I suddenly remember the moment when my room was crazy even the birds came the party. While Man City and Arsenal are battling the League while we focused on Leeds unforgettable Season with so many lady winning goals which they’re lucky to take the Top 10 in the League. If Leeds win against Nottingham they’ll take 5th Place before the 2024/2025 Season ends.

    When we got to the Stadium, Patrick and I were so excited while his mates were having their normal conversations. It was a thrilling experience to see Leeds United even by the famous statue outside of the stadium. We took our seats and started off with Leeds taking the ball while I was lucky to seat by the view of the goal with the tunnel of fans leaving in and out of their seats, Leeds United got their first goal of the match with Rodgrio from a great pass from Patrick Bamford. We saw the most beautiful sunset with all of the beautiful colors after the clouds pulled out. Before it reached 20 minutes Patrick and I walked around the Concourse of Leeds which it was cool to see the entire path empty so we had a quick stop to get snacks and a toilet break. When we planned to walk back to our seats, we heard the whistle blow but we saw the tvs in action but it was a penalty for Leeds to give Nottingham Forrest to level it up and heard the away fans fading in the echoes of belief. We ran upstairs and Forrest take the Penalty kick and Brennan Johnson got the goal to level it up. It didn’t stop with the Forrest taking the lead at the 35th Neco Willams the former Liverpool player pass it to Joe Worrall and did a long range kick to run the ball and give Nottingham the lead 2-1 which it stayed until halftime. We saw the beaufil colors of the sky to avoid the misery of the performance and we sang the Leeds Anthem with our hearts with the big general Leeds Supports but on our side of the field but the opposite side had more fans that were explicative that had some Hooligans and crazy young men who can care less. At the time of my dream it was one week after the day when Leeds took an outstanding victory 4-3 against Bournemouth which I still had Jesse Marsch who was the Coach of Leeds and huddle up to regroup the team and bounce back to get some in the 2nd half of the match. The match started with Leeds off to a slow start but Nottingham Forest took control of the ball for the first 10 minutes but until Jack Harrison got a great pass from Luke Ayling but it was so close at was an inch for a goal but hit the post but at the same time the goalkeeper Dean Henderson touched it before it hit the post. Tyler Adams kicked the ball for a corner kick and pass it to Liam Cooper and did a massive pass to Patrick Bamford which Leeds got the goal at the 57th Minute to level it up which I wanted to use it for my video compilation for my vlog. I was happy that wanted to record one moment of the memory lane with Leeds. After Leeds was able to tie it up 2-2, the match was starting to get into Leeds way but had fouls from both sides and a couple of yellow cards along the way. When it was time for some substitutes took over the field which Nottingham shortly got for a serious foul which it was originally checked for a yellow card but review the video and realize it was a call for a red card at the 75th minute. The whole Leeds fan were happy so Patrick and I laugh at Nottingham’s misfortune. At the 80th minute, the dusk sky was beautiful even it would stay natural twilight for the rest of the evening was beautiful but 3 other new Leeds players took some quick passed it Weston Mackenzie and ran it all the way to Brendan Aaronson got a powerful and all of the fans around the Eland Road got hyped up they thought it was going to be the winning goal. All the fans sing American Boy Leeds Edition after the celebration of Aaronson’s Goal. By the the 85th minute the dutchmen Pascal Struijk was about get the goal which he was tripped for a foul but the Referee blow the whistle even if the was ball was already in the net, either way the fans were blasted to raise the energy whenever if it counts or not but Leeds got a desperate chance to take the 4th goal. Pascal Struijk was able to get a second chance to retake the goal for a penalty kick which gives Leeds United a thriller lead 4-2. Everyone screamed for the goal and partied like its the moment of time. There was singing and shouting from fans around the stadium which some fans planed to leave before the traffic takes over. Everyone put pure heart for Leeds will move up to Fifth Place which they could their award for going to the Europa League Group Stage for the 25/26 Season. At the 90th Minute which they added 5 minutes of stoppage time, Willy Gnonto took the run and pass it Crysencio Summerville and wrapped up with a stunning goal which as soon as cheered, everyone got excited but i got too excited and accidentally on an empty seat which I had a quick chuckle it wasn’t plan to jump up and down for that moment. The match closed it with an outstanding win for Leeds United defeated Nottingham 5-2. As soon as the match ended with a victory as fans leaved the Stadium, we stayed for an extra 15 minutes I took a group photo with my England Mates which one of Leeds Stewarts did it before we got kicked out as we were the last few 100 people to wait for the traffic to fade down. When were ready to leave the Stadium, we took the exit path and saw some kids and happy fans outside of the Stadium pointed out that was gut who wrote the blog about Leeds United from Autisticana. It was a memorial match to witness the greatest home wins of the season.

    We all departed our ways which some have work and I was getting ready for a special VIP Nightclub from Someone in Leeds that messaged me since I was famous for Dance Artist in the UK was Awesome and Songs in High Pitch for Drum n Bass Artist. So Patrick and I showed me his place to meet his family before I walk back to the Marriott to get ready for the Nightclub. We took the rail took the place by the Town Centre and it was Nightclub that usually opens on Fridays and Saturdays but opens during the week for special occasions or close the place when no one makes reservations for special occasions. When we got to the place Patrick’s 3 Mates came in on the other side the town centre which Ryan, Finn and Conor were ready to pump up the music. We got in for a special VIP Music playlist for me from all of my favorite artists of Drum n Bass in the 2020s which it was perfect and played most of my favorite songs in high pitch.

    There was list of songs from BLVCK CROWZ, Aktive, Alexa Mae, Blanke, Delta Heavy, Freaks and Geeks, Friction, Georgie Riot, Holy Goof, Kanine, Koven, Lee Mvtthews, Seven Lions, Skepkiss, Sub Focus, Subsonic, Tsuki, Turno, Wilkinson, and so much more artists that would last the night.

    While some round of the music when I need a break of dancing while the music switch to regular pitch for the audio I socialize with The Ladies and talked about my work of art and creativity in the world of blogging. I had some great chats and had some a nice chat about life and music which I also talked about what was life with music festivals. I also danced with some of them and flirted with them to get the attention. Afterwards I went back to dancing with my mates and some of the guys brought their women they want to dance with while I was more focused on a people person with women. We also did some wacky dance moves and brought the club to an unforgettable night to remember. When it was 2AM, the party finished and we said goodbye to our partners and exchanged social accounts to keep in touch so we walked to the pizzeria and howled like the wolf because we had fun and got drunk so we decided to wrapped up the night by getting a midnight snack. At the pizza place we’re loud and obnoxious about the time of our lives what it feels like to be young and . I had a huge slice of pizza with chips and it was outstandingly delicious.

    When we left the pizzeria, I had a quick hiccup and held a moment to stop and regain some of my momentum because I had plenty to drink at the club and their was a taxi rank few buildings by the pizzeria. Luckily we took the last 2 cabs that were available at the taxi rank. Patrick and I took the minibus which it was the Vauxhall Vivaro as a passenger van which we had a nice chat while riding back to the hotel and also talked to the driver about Leeds Victory and the simple life of driving the cab in Leeds. We decided to finally relax because we used up all of the energy. The guys took the sedan cab as the Audi A6 which they continued to get wild as soon as they left. By the time we got to our destination, we thanked the driver and Patrick also used his card to notify his account for the Leeds Taxi App and I was amazed that you get to be a member of the local cab rewards program. The driver already got an automatic pickup for a passenger who wants to get to the airport for a early morning flight when we walk back to the hotel.

    I took him to my room at the Marriott to have a child feeling by laughing and having fun while spending the rest of the night watching Bluey and Clohet which I recently dreamed about it as a spin-off version but more in adult animation with the same animation studios and animation style as Bluey which back at home I would watch it on Hulu and the UK has a streaming site which lucky both Australia and the UK has it on their local network channel.

    As soon as we woke up by noon for a Wednesday which we made coffee to start the day so I can get ready for a Zoom Meeting with Christine. I had a business meeting on Zoom with Christine and talked about the importance of Autisticana and upcoming events later in the summer. After the Zoom meeting we stop by at a Cafe by the town Centre to have brunch. Then Patrick showed me his Autisticana Building in Leeds near Bradford which it’s actually a house in the dead end path in Pudsey within 5 minutes away from the Train Station. We did some blogging on their own site included a category on what a positive impact about your week if it’s good or most memorable highlight and I was happier to see Patrick’s Teacher Tiffany who runs for the Autisticana Division of the UK which I was the top American Fan that often goes on their website. The house was next to the Group Home for the individuals to learn independence skills so they don’t have to deal with pupils that are typical neighbors. They have the sensory room in the basement and the Colour Room in the upstairs Room. We decided to write a blog about Leeds and then we made season pesto and tomato sandwiches. Afterwards we wave goodbye and we both walked to the train station and and hugged Patrick and wave goodbye when we got his local train station and I went back to the Marriott and talked to Christine about everything plus the most important lessons of life.

    The next morning I took a great goodnight sleep and took the train to Newcastle and had another conference Meeting. I also went to the beach to rent a surfboard and discovered St. James Park which is home to Newcastle United. I took an evening nap so I can stay up late at the nightclub where they play all kinds of Dance Music from Synth-pop to heavy bass music. I also dance with a lot of different attractive women. The next day I went to Leicester to have another Conference Meeting which I went to visit a facility for Autism of Leicester, which there was recreation Centre which the people were awesome. During my few days of Leicester, I discovered the town Centre and some of the historic sites of England. I wrapped the weekend and went to the nightclub with pop music and dance. I also dance with a lot of attractive women and chatted with them about my stories and life which I had the sexy moves when the music was blasted. I was the top dancer of the night luckily most of my favorite pop and dance songs from the 2000s, 2010s, and today’s hits were in high pitch like I used to hear on the radio which was awesome. I was also happy that one of my favorite woman was able to take me home for a one-night stand. The next morning I woke up with the birds chirping and we went to the cafe of Downtown Leicester City. We talked about life, music and type of style of interaction and the way feel about other people included my life story while feeling relaxed than dealing with the loud music last night. I was happy to bring up my horizons to talk about my experiences that most neurotypical people don’t even realize about my genius of autism. We talked about our favorite holidays and top memories including nightclub stories even though I don’t go as much back home because I feel free to avoid any crimes or drugs in the club while at the resorts you don’t have to even worry about waking to a dark night scary. We decided to stay friends because she is more into the social life but I was happy to text her on socials when I get a chance about music and my blogs.

    During my final week of England, my friend BFF Patrick texted me that Leeds United won 2-1 against Huddersfield which he was glad that that we went Tuesday over Saturday because he realized he had work last minute. I chatted with him on the train from Leicester to Paddington. On My visit to London, I stopped by to spend a couple of days to stay in London to see the top attractions like the London Tower, The London Eye, Queen Elisabeth’s Castle, Buckingham Palace, The London Museum, Big Ben, the new Tottenham Stadium and other popular attractions of London. I wish the Queen of England would still be alive. I took the Black Cab, the London Tube. and walked through the London Bridge. I was also invited to the Autisticana Sponsorship Meeting in London by the London Tower.

    I spend my last my full day Southampton I took a rental car from London and drove it to Southampton for my last conference event in the Uk and watched the season finale of the Premier League on my phone and laptop at some hotel by the beach near Southampton. I was more focused with the Leeds United match at St. Mary’s Southampton

    Today I went with my staff Victoria to Island 16 to see the movie ‘The Fablemans.’ I thought there were some funny moments. The main character Sam loved making films, and his mother was very supportive of his creativity. We saw the Fablemans growing up together. There was a lot of drama and the parents were getting a divorce. The mother would sleep all day, but she enjoyed playing the piano as her creative escape. Sam’s dad got new jobs which made the family have to move to new states. Sam and his sisters were upset with the changes, and he was getting bullied and beat up. They made fun of him because he was Jewish by calling him horrible names and hanging a bagel in his locker. There were many challenges, hardships, and stress in the Fableman household. Creativity, art, and love helped Sam and his mother through tough times.

    I enjoyed seeing this movie and I would like to continue ‘Rachel’s Reviews.’ I would rate The Fablemans a 10/10. I would recommend to my friends and family.
