That sounds like a pretty good plan. Specialised computer skills of all kinds are incredibly valuable these days. I'm quite envious of people who have above average computer skills actually.

Update: Meeting is tomorrow morning and I am trying hard to distract myself from it.

Wow thanks for reading :). I wouldn't say that I'm strong so much as stubborn, I guess. The thought of NTs without the obstacles I'm facing doing better than me because of it is enough to get me angry to the point that I will push through just to spite NT dominated society, most of the time. I actua...

Sorry this is a very, very long rant and I just want to get it off my chest. I've had to leave some details of my courses vague. I've been doing graduate studies in a particular research group for 1 and a half years and I'm doing my second course. The first one went really well - my average was a lo...

I have a few that I've picked up over the years: * Have a set of stock responses to common questions and statements. For example: NT: Hi, how are you? Me: I'm great, thanks. How about you? NT: I'm so tired. Me: Me too, I guess it's that time of year, isn't it? *It's always a good idea to end with a ...

I currently live alone and it's a lot better than living with others. No expending energy to deal with others, no one steals my stuff and no one hogging my bathroom except me. The main problem that it can be too peaceful. It's hard to motivate myself to clean the place until it becomes necessary, bu...

Your life may be a hot mess, but there is guaranteed to be at the very least one teeny tiny part which can be tidied (metaphorically speaking). Focus on that. Then repeat.

I second zkoc, I'm a pretty extreme night owl and managing to get up in the morning is a challenge in itself, but I can work 14 hour days on end if it's necessary and I'm able to work on a nocturnal schedule. My NT mother is a morning person and she is exhausted after 8 hours. Research has shown tha...

I don't shave either area unless I plan to wear clothes which show that particular area or if I am bored. Instead of shaving cream I use a layer of moisturizer beforehand (and after I dry off if I remember). My outfits tend to involve pants and tee or long sleeved shirts so I can go weeks without sh...

As someone who's now in grad school, I have some tips, some I've already learned, the rest is advice from friends who've finished the course. I'm doing a coursework/research course so some of these tips won't apply to everyone: - Be selective in choosing your supervisor, but be flexible with your re...

I'm doing a graduate course with a research component, which I consider to be my full-time job. I will hopefully be able to add some lab demonstrating to that next semester, if not I can do some private tutoring to supplement my government payments. Previously I spent my last year of high school and...

I got mine when I was about 12. I knew it was coming since I was 7 after reading a couple of my mother's nursing books. I skipped a year of school so I was a bit anxious about being behind my peers in any way. A lot of the girls I knew got theirs early, I was really impatient to get it and I was act...

My dream job is to do science research. I'm coming up to 6 years in my retail job and all it's taught me is that I don't want to do anything people orientated or corporate.

Single, for about 13 months now. I have been in 4 relationships and I guess taking a break of more than 6 months between the last one and a future relationship could be a good thing. If any of my fwbs were not in a committed relationship I probably wouldn't be as worried about this as I currently am.

I live in a shared apartment with three other students, two of which are in a relationship. It's actually quiet as the majority of the apartment block is occupied by hospital workers. It's also within walking distance of my university and the cbd which means I can always escape to a library or cafe ...

1. Tomato Sauce/Ketchup I don't like the taste of it. I can tolerate it as an ingredient in a dish but only if I cannot taste it by itself. 2. Unflavored milk I have had an aversion to drinking it as long as I can remember. If I have cereal I always pour in minimal milk to coat it. 3. Wearing make-u...
