I'm actually really good at budgeting and saving money, but being homeless and a couch surfer right now. Using someone else's home, I am struggling to save money when I feel compelled to pay the people letting me stay for free. Which means I am always buying extra. If I was just buying for myself li...

See and I have always gotten the opposite response. So many people are comfortable with me because I have a non threatening presence, so the response is no.

What makes them think they're pushing me to leave? I'm having a great time, doing just a little work in order not to get too bored, and surfing the web... She can't complain because I won't listen. I could continue like this forever... If you're not doing your work, your management has every right ...

I love cooking. I'm always learning new recipes, and I have been complimented many times before. I am the guy who comes to a pot luck, always promises the roommates I'll bring some back for them, but there is never any leftovers afterward. I have been told by many I should have went to culinary scho...

Maybe, and this is a stretch, your therapist is helping by making you think bout what you say. I often repeat information to people when I want them to hear what they have to say. It's a way to get them to think about what they say. Hearing it being deciphered by someone else, should give you a crit...

What do you consider high functioning?

Technically, as much as its worth, I am considered to have a High IQ, above the cutoff point. But in my day to day living skills, I am considered low functioning.

But I am not special needs nor am I mentally deficient.

I wrote this a while ago: We are all looking for a perfect world, failing to recognize that there is no perfect world. And perfect only means that a world should be livable for all. The world will never make everyone happy. And instead of focusing on happiness for everybody, understand happiness com...

I actually do stim in public. Not rocking. But they have these things on Amazon; Fidget toys, which means you can carry them in your pocket or your hand and fiddle with them. There's nothing wrong with someone fidgetting with a twisty bendy thing in public. I've gotten to this point, where I don't c...

I'm well aware of this, its why I made the point earlier. I am not democratic nor republican. I am actually Declined to the State because I don't vote for a specific party because I don't fit any of the parties. I rather fix the problem not the blame and don't want to get into distracting arguments...

i'm a single issue voter, so that clarifies my choice each election. My issue is more assistance and rights for adults with invisible disability, but no one seems to be talking about it or mentioning or bringing it up. I disagree. The DNC's platform talks about that quite a bit. But its all empty p...

I prefer the softer dictator to the harder one. but we are captive regardless. I prefer no dictator. I like more like the European Parliament, its odd because I much prefer an Imperialistic interest. Because it feels more pragmatic. But I also as said, feel like we should have liberty. I am not one...

the GOP holding onto all the reins of power would be even harsher on you and me. far harsher. True, but I have to uncover the video an Austrian woman was speaking of her encounters in World War and she said something that really struck out to me "When the people fear their government, that's a...
