Ashton Deroy writes: In a town that struggles with obesity, high social assistance use & lack of healthcare. What is our town government doing? If you feel like Quinte West lacks community participation there might be good reason. While beer & fast food are sadly a staple of our town’s culture. We have to ask, “Should we be changing this?”
Should our town really celebrate the people most capable of over stuffing themselves with food? Meanwhile we have people struggling to take care of themselves in town. It really stands to reason we need more celebrations of athleticism & less emphasis on gluttony. What is there to celebrate about a food consumption contest?
The Bay of Quinte culture requires a lot of change. The first thing we can do is criticize what is happening. The next steps are to have public discussions, engage public figures & continuous research. Do you think this spectacle is needless? Leave a comment or email me at Ashtonderoy@gmail.com
Ashton Deroy an Autistic citizen in Belleville Ontario shares their past & the current happenings in their life. High Functioning crazy is an identifier I am using to express how my brain functions at certain times. I figure this explanation for poorly thought out rational actions beats the excuse I once heard about autistic people seeming drunk. Also I have always felt the term crazy got an unfair ear due to an overly wide translation.
Crazy is anything from extremely enthusiastic to aggressive & dangerous. Apparently I should of been terrified when I met my overly enthusiastic friend Alana. It seemed like an eager smile and a chatty attitude that won me over. However maybe it is was a convincing act for mentally deranged and aggressive behavior.
High functioning is obviously code for the social behavior classes took. They seem normal enough to engage with everyone else now. I have relatives that understand sensible boundaries less than I do… Honestly high functioning crazy is less exhausting and more ambiguous than telling people your mental disorder. I think honestly if you could just act weird like Pheobe in Friends & just have people expect odd things. That probably beats the constant identification with your own mental illness label.
Also there is a reckless part of some of us. That scoffs at the labels”BiPolar” , “Autistic” , “ADHD. I can do better than that!!!” Like a personal challenge of self-destruction. Ultimately the general term crazy being vague and therefore also less intimidating.

Hey Incels, I may not be a straight male who is begging for sexual attention from females. However I am gay and I have had more conversations with women than a lot of straight guys. Today’s women can be intelligent, hard workers, funny & very deep thinkers. If you have not gotten to know this, if you still only know women as Stacys or Beckys. It is time to get off Reddit & take my advice on reaching for sexual and social maturity.
Listen if you feel you are ready to move forward in romantic or sexual relationships. However haven’t gotten anywhere yet… It is time to grow & change. The best thing I ever did with my time not getting laid was grow up. No one you want is going to award you with re-enforcement in the loser club.
Ashton Deroy Writes: Have you ever met someone so pig headed, they would let you criticize our public banking system before they let you criticize them for having, for example $8,000 in debt? That would be the case for me in dealing with one of my family’s narcissists. What is a narcissist?
Some people think I qualify as a narcissist because I write blogs. However I don’t think the world runs around me & as I will point out to anyone who spends enough time with me, I hate myself. However I am talking about someone who is so truly delusional in narcissistic behaviors, I could at times buy in to what they said. Although that has faded over time. Now I am mesmerized by the display of constantly unhealthy behavior, while keeping a healthy distance and doing some healthy introspection on top of it.
Ever met a couple where one of the people in the couple has a sole purpose of making sure the other doesn’t crash the car well drunk? This reminds me of this narcissist’s girlfriend or sometimes the “enabler”. The thin line of co-existence & codependency is met by the fact he has interfered with her ability to keep a job, take care of her daughter & function. Meanwhile when she had a job and he didn’t he have no problem asking her for the money for weed. I repeat, “enabler”. I said, I use them to introspect and this is partially why I don’t want my boyfriend to buy me weed.
How to distance yourself from the narcissist?
I use all of these tips to deal with the family narcissist because getting sucked in is not an option.
Three things we can’t really say to this family narcissist:
Anyways I saw this narcissist last night in Stirling Ontario & as of now at Loyalist College. I am glad it is over.

Ashton Deroy Writes: I used to be one of the most Libertarian pro-tech people you would ever meet. I thought kids needed to learn computer proficiency fast as possible, schools needed to bend the curriculum to be more computer & mobile oriented and lastly we need to make sure all kids have access to a computer. I don’t think think that anymore… My views have changed with the exposure of people legally recognized as minors exposure to sex apps, drug culture & child predators.
The first reason my views began changing was because of something that happened on GrindR in 2015. I had realized someone I was talking to was 16 years of age and they were on an app whose primary purpose was trolling for sex. Well I suppose I was on Plenty Of Fish doing the exact same thing at 17. It still worries me because Plenty Of Fish was like a casual dating site & GrindR was more like a “f*** me in a bathroom stall kind of place.” I encouraged the kid to leave the site as it wasn’t safe for them to use. This was when my opinion first began changing and it only gets worse. Someone really should be looking at their teenager’s phone and saying, “What is Grindr?” Or they should know, because it clearly isn’t educational.
The second part that began shifting my brain on children needing monitoring on technology happened in 2015 as well. My younger cousin used a phrase for smoking weed everyday (SWED) . To my knowledge this kid has never even seen me & my brother smoke weed. However he had exposure to YouTube and it was enough for him to use the expression. Frig I’d rather kids imitate Sponge Bob than Imitate stoners! Which made me only further change my opinion on kids and tech. If you don’t smoke weed around your kids. Why do you expose them to the adult culture of it?
The last part that really bugs me is the mix of child predators & even under aged nudity you are seeing online. FYI Instagram moderators could really use to clean things up! I am pretty sure kids are being exploited on Instagram and some of them getting paid for it via apps such as Only Fans. This kind of stuff just really grosses me out… Parents should really be catching & preventing these things from happening.
Just in my opinion I am getting to a point now where I am pro-monitoring minors on the internet. What we are seeing now? Is getting a bit gross. Kids are being exposed to an over sexualized culture, with drugs & predators. Unfortunately it hard to monitor these things with mobile media & computers. However I think it is necessary.

In August of 2018, I began posting on my Instagram and personal blog about an issue Quinte West had in regards to waste getting in to our natural water by Centennial Park. It has since been one year since I have tried bringing this to to the attention of the public & Mayor Harrison. Now we are writing this letter to an MP to create some kind of community responsibility in regards to the destruction of our waters. It is my belief that we need to either work towards banning plastics & fast food containers that are not biodegradable. What I want to achieve? I want to get our town to fund waste removal from the natural waters & surrounding areas.
Consumers of convenience store foods & fast food are some of the least Eco-friendly consumers on the planet. Every year massive amounts of containers, packaging and bottles are found destroying our natural habitats & water. In Quinte West I have photographed evidence of damage to our environment near centennial park, & in our Bay with the culprits being common convenience goods. I have also provided picture evidence to show that Quinte West’s volunteer waste removal efforts are not even close to enough aide. Which proves require a government collaborated executions to pay for waste removal efforts.
It is widely understood online that our town hosts some of the most wasteful industrial companies in plastics doing business in Quinte West. such as Nestle, other commonly high waste contributors such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co & Metro Inc all sell goods within in Quinte West. I believe even if it requires creating a government paid execution for waste removals in public and natural attraction areas in Quinte West to try to reduce damage on our ecosystem. This is where we create job removing unnatural waste from environments where it can impact fish & mammals.
I want to conclude saying we need to do something to impact our damage to our ecosystem. I think the answer is to create jobs removing waste from areas where it can impact the natural environment. I am sure we can contribute to paying for these jobs by creating a tax on the output of plastics from these companies. If we do this next year we can save our environment for the future.
Contact our MP at: email@example.com . Ask him to take action to maintain Quinte West waters.
