1. How many hours per night do you spend studying? It varied typically from 1-3 hours per night, but some nights went up to 5+ hours. 2. Do you do so on the last few nights before the test or right when the chapter starts? At the beginning of the quarter I tried to read the book ahead of time, but ...

If you ask me.. dress how you fit in. Don't come off stuck up like, if you dress better than them they won't like you. But if you dress like one of the guys, observe what they do.. and just learn it. Learning is easy but talking is the key part. You haveto get to know them, accept them, and respect...

I agree with everyone who points out this progress thing, though. I've made a lot of progress the last year, but the progress didn't come for free. Real progress never is free. There's always some sacrifice involved. Anybody who tells you differently is trying to sell you something. :wink: At any r...

When I was a junior in high school, I had this one teacher. He was half German, half Japanese, and he said people would make jokes about him being "the enemies of World War II." I was the only one who laughed. I was the only person out of 35(?) kids who knew our 2 major enemies in WWII. All of thos...

I won because he insulted me. You can never truly "win" against your friends or anybody who is close to you. Defeating somebody that close to you will only ruin your relationship with that person, and is extremely counterproductive. Your "win" is in many ways also a "loss". In this case, the only p...

This. What the OP did was learn skills that compensated for the autism, probably putting him in the non-diagnosable, neurologically autistic group. It happens to lots of people, including some people on WP. Just because you're no longer impaired doesn't mean you've magically changed to neurotypical...

However, there is a matter of heterosexuals choosing to become sexually active with the same gender and enjoying it. I know some would call that being bisexual or pansexual. That's not being gay, bisexual or pansexual. That's called sexual experimentation. You're being too hung up on the label. It'...

I'm on the side of the spectrum that thinks being gay is a choice. Now warning, this is MY opinion so I don't want any gay rights people attacking me nor will I respond to any comments. I'm just adding my own opinion on the matter. Anyways I think yes, people can choose to be gay. There have been s...

I'm not saying that you'd just blow off a potential suicide. I'm sure your opinion has a lot of truth in it....all I'm saying is that we should be very careful that we don't forsake those who really are close to the edge. I do believe in "tough love," and I hate to see the cranking out of indiscrim...

Some thoughts that have helped me in my life so far: Do not bottle your feelings up. Do not hold back your worries and concerns. When things get really bad, you'll be more prone to meltdowns and will in all likelihood find it even more difficult to convey your feelings in a calm manner that won't to...

IMO, meltdowns are no excuse for verbal or physical violence. I've learn to constructively control my anger just by taking courses in managing it. There are ways in which a person can constructively communicate with them if they're having a problem. Resort to verbal tantrums is just asking for a di...

For example, when asked why I was the best person for a particular job, I told them I did not know if I was the best. They asked me why I thought they wouldn't want the best, and I said that I don't know who else wants the job, so how would I know if I was better than them? I think people want bull...

"Oh no .....You didn't. Sure, it's a swell picture of you, but I look like the Wreck of the Hesperus. Quick, strap me to the mast before I'm swept away." This doesn't sound particularly angry, but it's not very funny to me either. I have no idea what the Hesperus was. Sarcasm (or perhaps more relev...

As an Aspie who's generally had girlfriends over the years, one thing that comes to mind is that (at least for me) they tend to help out with maintaining a social group, get me on the invite list for couples things, and generally keep me from forgetting that there are other people out there, some o...
