Welcome to the COBRA Blog!


Hello, and welcome to my blog! Since this is the first post, I will start by telling you a little bit about myself!

I’m a millennial whose interests tend to be varied, but I would say my strongest interest is in music! Music, especially classical music, has always been a part of my life in some way, shape, or form, so it’s very likely one of these days that this will basically evolve into a blog focused on music.  (Heh! I am after all a composer of music!) My more secondary interests include (but are not limited to) – anime, card games/board games, hanging out with friends…. oh, and Canadian politics!

As a young Black man who happens to be diagnosed with a condition known as Asperger’s Syndrome (now known as Autism Spectrum Disorder as of the DSM-5) some discussion on that topic may trickle in – who knows?  Personally, I identify as both autistic and Aspie and will use both interchangeably when relevant in succeeding posts.

At its best, I’m hoping this blog will shed some light on being both black and autistic/Aspie through the use of poetry, rants, music, and opinion pieces, but I’ll also be willing to discuss other relevant topics that you may raise!
