 Forum: School and College Life   Topic: Perfectionism and Grades

I used to be quite perfectionist about grades, and no matter what grade I'd got I'd be looking to go one or two higher. I ended up doing very well in secondary school. But when it came to university and the system was different and the courses I took were difficult, I didn't do as well and got rathe...

I have a lot of good memories at my old secondary school, so yeah I'd go back. Just after I'd finished I really started to miss being there and couldn't stop thinking about it for a while. A few months ago I went back just to see an old teacher I had to talk about life issues.

I would find it absolutely abhorrent and unkind for a parent to disown their child utterly for something like that. People are human, and as a result they befall the shortcomings of being that very thing. Specially where Rule 34 applies there in. This. If I was your mum I wouldn't even say anything...

I just try to avoid them if possible. Unfortunately some of my family is like that (though only slightly negative I'd say, it could be much worse). Still I find spending too much time with them doesn't feel good and isn't doing me a lot of favours. The more time you spend with positive people, the b...

Personally I find meeting friends one-on-one much easier then a big group as it easier to pay attention to just one other person. Also in a larger group there's more chance I'll just get left out of the conversation as I'm rather quiet and everyone else may just find it easier to carry on talking to...

I remember many things from my childhood/distant past, though I can remember both general and specific things. I think I have better than average far-long term memory as when I talk to people about experiences we've both been through a long time ago often I can recall it in detail whilst they can ba...

I generally maintain good hygiene, but if I'm not meeting anyone on a given day I might skip the shower to save water and not having to wash my clothes so frequently, though will never go for more than 2 days without one (at around that point I start to feel it).

"Social skills" is a little inaccurate too. I think inherent likeability is as important, if not more so. I've beat out as*holes with much better "social skills" for promotions and such just because I'm more inherently likeable. That's interesting. I'd have thought that those 'as*holes' would be ab...

Activating the car horn when it's not a safety issue is a moving violation and/or crime in most states. With good measure...those things are supposed to be used for emergencies. Yeah it is, too bad the police don't seem to care about it here (never seen anyone ticketed for it, probably as too many ...

I wonder if it is worth putting that I have Aspergers on my linkedIn. I thought of doing it because most of my ex colleagues must think I am just a freak so if I put that at least they may have some kind of explanation. Is that a wise idea do you think? In general don't disclose as many people misu...

You might want to try earphones like the ones you use for a MP3 player or phone that are designed to block outside noise, though as the previous poster mentions it only reduces rather than cancels out noise. Though you might find a simple reduction of the noise level is enough to reduce the stress o...

If I was in that situation I would err on the side of being too nice and understanding, though that's just me and I'm not sure if that's the best way to act. I wouldn't want to risk creating a bad impression by getting angry which may potentially jeopardise your application, and people make mistakes...

Perhaps try other fields if he's interested in anything else. If he has a particular skill, then see if either of you knows anyone who's looking for someone with that skill - it may be easier to work with someone you already know than new people. I think customer service orientated jobs are likely t...

I generally find car horns annoying. It just sounds generally obnoxious and many people misuse it, especially in my area. It's often as if they're saying they own the road or something. And if it happens close enough to me I can get startled by it. I hope I don't lose my balance and fall in front of...

I agree with the comments that 'I hate you' was most likely not intended seriously. Also if it was then that friend wouldn't want to hang out with you anyway. If it really bothers you maybe talk to them about it (if you think they'll understand that is).
