Well here I am bearing really good coffee! Because of bad depressive episodes all semester, I am hopelessly behind in all my classes and in danger of loosing my scholarships. I have no close friends here at school, and besides my parents, no real meaningful relationships at all. My peers and coworke...

1 sentence can trigger a panic attack. Like this one time, someone said: you have nothing to fear but fear itself. I started thinking "should I fear fear" and so on. It was my most horrifying panic attack yet. I get similar panic attacks to you, Drekka. Sensory overload has never been a problem but...

I did a three month Americorps service a couple summers ago. It was in my hometown so I lived at home and it was pretty much like any other job apart from the bad pay. I worked as a construction assistant at Habitat which was very rewarding. I would recommend it.

The earliest obsession I can remember is things that plug into each other in general and sound equipment in particular. That was probably when I was 5. When other kids were drawing tree, houses, and dinosaurs, I was drawing system diagrams. I got obsessed with Star Wars not long after that and I did...

Do you have any memory problems?I tend to retain general concepts but have problems remembering ...names and numbers.I am not sure why but I think I learned at a young age that I could not retain this info and so I stopped trying to focus on it.There is something "wrong" with my brain thats has not...

I smoke weed occasionally but I only have the desire to when I feel pretty good already. I've had some great nights high but I've also had some bad ones. When I was getting diagnosed with AS, the psychologist asked if I smoked pot and when I said I did, he didn't discourage me from doing it and adde...

I do this a lot. I keep my room very cold at night so I don't over heat. I like to sleep with one or two comforters and sometimes a body pillow on top of me. I really like that feeling.

I am a definite perfectionist, especially when it comes to subjects I love. Lately it has been taking me ages to write philosophy essays because I really want to get at something good in them. I am almost always behind in classes because I work so slowly. My real passion is designing for theater. I ...

I have a AMD Athalon 64 3200+ lying in a box on my floor from when I upgraded my computer.

An old laptop with a broken screen hooked up to my TV.

Some random PCI cards, cables, and some broken old hard drives.

I just got a new laptop which I will be paying off for a long while. It took some searching but I finally found one with the right price, specs, and with XP Pro instead of Vista. I don't want to open that can of worms for at least a year. It is a Leveno 3000 and I am really happy with it. Core Duo 1...

Most of my pressure comes from myself. I guess what I really want is more of an intellectual companion. You know, the kind of person who you talk to that gives you enough space that you can be alone when you need to be, but you can literally tell anything to, whenever you need to come back to socie...

I get some pressure from my college room mates but I don't think it's going to happen. I'm just not dating material. I would like to have a casual relationship that is more like friends with benefits but I doubt that many women would go for that.

I suppose I could get a girl if I really worked hard enough at it but I just don't think it is worth it right now. Most people bore me and I need a lot of time to myself. That doesn't really seem to work very well in a relationship. On the other hand I'm not happily single. I wish the ideal of love ...
