I too know what that kind of segregation feels like, Amik. I spend most of my hours at my computer, and my parents usually only call me for dinner. Granted, this could be their way of giving me space and independence, and I'm grateful for it. My family is a bit dysfunctional, so I avoid them when I ...

When I stew, it is usually about what a character in a fictional work did and why. Sometimes, I repeat descriptions about the action in my head so much, I forget what the description words mean. When I am done, I keep my thoughts to myself, because I feel that no one else would care about what I thi...

Sorry for the late response, Stargazer43. Now, to answer your questions: I received a B. S. in Mathematics. When I said that I was only good at math, I was implying that that was my main focus in college, and I apologize for not being explicit about it. I have taken courses in other subjects like ar...

Sometimes, random ideas pop into my head, and I want to record them so I don't forget. Other times, I'm too lazy to record these ideas, and I end up forgetting about the idea entirely. I'm afraid the idea that I conceived over the weekend but ultimately forgot might have been important, but even if ...

Does anyone else have a tendency to stew about minutia? If so, could you tell me how to quit?

I also feel dependent on computers and the internet. I have trouble finding reasons to be happy about my life; when something online really entertains me, I always want more, like a child wanting more candy.

I graduated from college this past spring, so that means I have to start earning a living. The problem is I don't know what I want to do with my life, either for a while or in the long run. I never really thought about what careers interested me when I was younger, and the counseling I got in colleg...

I am also a slave to my passions. Originally, I would watch cartoons, play a few online games, and occasionally read a book. Now, I'm into looking at fanfiction, fan art, fan-made videos, and webcomics. The strength of my obsessions is really taking its toll on my life now because I'm out of school ...

I'm also a cartoon-lover with AS. I've watched a variety of cartoons during the 1990's and 2000's on Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network; some of my favorites feature superheroes or are influenced by animé . I think my problem was that I spent too much time watching cartoons. I was neve...

I have a few tricks for dealing with memory problems; they haven't worked for me, but they still might be useful. 1) Eat healthier. (For the past few weeks, I have been getting up at around 10 AM or later, so I eat a late breakfast, and my whole day feels out of whack.) 2) Carry something to help yo...

I also have that kind of problem. I have an affinity for trivial information, but important things either go over my head or in one ear and out the other. I remember when I accidentally let something burn on the stove-top; I was so hungry that afternoon that while I was looking for a snack, I failed...

hiya LJ :) welcome to the club 8) have you not before met anybody who shared similar interests? if you have, had you not at least exchanged a few words on your mutual fave subject/s? I don't really have any friends; the closest thing I had to friends in recent memory was a support group I attended ...

At public gatherings where attendees aren't required to sit, I tend to just eat and pace around the room. Does anyone have tips on how to engage in small talk?
