Lots of these definitely apply to me. Small talk is always difficult, I feel like I can do this for about 5 minutes and then I just run out of steam to keep a conversation about nothing going. I am also pretty 'figidty' when I'm talking to someone I always end up finding myself playing with my keys ...

I do the 'fantasy conversation' sometimes, not often though. More so though I just think about conversations and when I have the opportunity to have them it just kind of feels 'right' not to say nothing and 'wrong' to actually start talking. I guess it just takes practice like MollyTroubletail said,...

I can't take notes to save my life! When I try to I end up just feeling like a court reporter or something, I write down what the professor says but don't actually comprehend it at all. Generally after about 5-10 minutes of trying to take notes I either resort to scribbling, writing computer code, o...

I very vividly remember how I got into my biggest interest (programming). I think I was about 8 or 9 and was playing around with our family computer when hidden deep in some directory I found a simple game where gorillas throw exploding bananas at each on a roof top. Our of curiosity took a look at ...

Not sure really how to explain this but... I feel like I often think about conversations I want to have with people, what to say, what they might say, etc. But then when I actually have the opportunity to have a conversation I just can't seem to do it. I just feel like there is an invisible wall or ...

Hello What is the programming language of the future? Of programing content for the web(in the future)? No one programming language is every going to dominate computer programming. Some (for example C/C++) will most likely always be around, however even since I've started programming (14 years ago ...

Usually don't post in this subforum, but I felt obliged to. First, welcome to WP! Second, why is your username what it is? I just choose the name because I'm a big fan of the Talking Heads and its the name of my favorite album. I am not actually afraid of music or anything, in fact I love music, I ...

Middle School: average ~2 High School: average ~2-3 Now: 3 Its kind of hard to judge I guess, I know many other people but really just as acquaintances. I don't really ever become friends with 'friends of friends' I guess...

You need to sit down and write out a long list of what went wrong and how you got to this point. Be HONEST with yourself. You have to show anyone the list, but until you identify what lead you to this point, you can't hope to start fixing it. Then you need to decide whether you can change those thi...

I tend to do quite a bit of my programming with pen and paper, I think mainly because when I was in middle/high school I could write programs during class and all my teachers just thought I was taking notes. :lol: For me my finished code has to be concise and aesthetically pleasing... kind of hard t...

I'm new here (obviously) and just wanted to say hi. I've been sort of lurking around this forum for a week or two after a psychologist told me my brain was 'wired different' and that I have some autistic traits... he seemed about as confused as me. Anyway lots of things I've read here have kind of c...
