I sort of wear makeup. Sometimes. If I remember. Or have time before I leave the house or remember to put a bit on while in transit. Not much. I like to wear a little though as I look nicer with it on and it can be pretty. But I have poor fine motor skills so it has to be good stuff that is easy to ...

My family thinks I'm so odd- I buy the vast majority of my clothing online. Online I can find better prices. I'm cheap. Online, I can find more sizes. I'm both tall and plus size. Online, I can browse styles and colors and get a better variety. If I don't like it, I can just send it back. I can try ...

Many times, not always-- I have a couple of good friends who are freaking brilliant who went from BS straight to PhD programs-- a person usually gets a masters degree before pursuing the PhD. Your masters need not be in the exact same area as the PhD (or bachelors) but it does need to be closely rel...

Literature speaks to your ability to apply language, but it would depend on the course. Take whichever course has the more challenging writing component-- you will benefit from the experience, whatever you study. An important component of scholarship is the communication of ideas. If they have equal...

This sounds like an anxiety sort of dream to me. If you take the hallway as sort of a timeline with early years at the beginning it seems that you are looking at the earlier memories rather fondly, idealistically. Things were easier back then, less to worry about perhaps? That the doors wouldn't ope...

well anyone is at risk of a seizure, esp. with things like high fever. But if one doesn't have a high fever it is unlikely. and without a history of seizures that chance is low. These things don't tend to start after puberty without some sort of head trauma. I have AS. My brother has a more severe f...

Ever since I was a senior in high school I worked part time. But when I went to graduate school I quite the part time job I had so I focus more on doing things related to my studies and volunteer work that was related. I hadn't been able to get an assistantship that first year of grad school. Prior ...

I like it. I'm on my second grad degree, so that sort of tells you something. And I have Ph.D. lust. I found that I enjoyed the higher level stuff much more than the basic courses-- survey sort of courses tended to drive me crazy. Too shallow-- never enough detail on any one thing. I have taken onli...

I moved out when I was 18. I moved into the college dorm. Came home for the summer. Then I studied abroad for a year-- went great and lived in university housing, in a house with others. Came home for a shorter summer. Then I got an apartment with a couple of roomates but we had separate leases and ...

I had my gall bladder out about a year and a half ago after it failed spectacularly. It took me quite a while to recover too-- I picked up some infections in the hospital. I hope you do better-- I understand I was unusually ill, as I was confined to bed with it and unable to sit up for more than a f...

I agree that communication is important. Uber important. So is realising when things aren't your fault, and when things are both people's faults. My husband he isn't an Aspie. But he has issues-- like depression and he is introverted. Well I'm one of those extroverted Aspies. So sometimes that can b...

I love to shave. It doesn't hurt, I feel, especially not compared to razor cuts and razor burn and irritation. I get these nair bodywax strips. You just warm the strips with your hands (I sit on them) and its very easy. I hear epilators are also good for experienced waxers. I think there is somethin...

Yes and No... Lately, like in the past year, I have given a lot of thought to the subject the body and appearance and so forth. Part of it is weight. I was morbidly obese. Now weight and awareness of weight is an odd thing, especially for young females. I say this because it is true-- we live in a v...

It's possible to practice Eugenics without being bad. I carry the gene for cystic fibrosis although I don't suffer from the disease. By deciding not to have any kids I've decreased the gene pool just a little bit and if every CF carrier did this the disease would be gone in two generations. This co...

These are good things to consider. A bit overwhelming at the moment, but good to consider. Someday I might go back and get a colour pallete. According to the whole Color Me A Season thing, I'm an Indian Summer, whatever that means colour wise. I think its Autumny Summer. I know I look nice in greys ...
