My practicing for the smaller orchestra group I mentioned isn't going so well! Violin is really hard! A lot of people in my grade are quitting orchestra this year.

I hope you are doing okay! I haven't heard from you in a while!





Hi, I am back. Sorry I have been away, but last week, my computer stopped working. I could not check my E mail or Wrong Planet, or do anything else on my computer either. I took it to my Dad's house, and he could not get it to work either. It turned out that there was a problem with the power supply, so we had to buy a new electrical cord for it. I just got my computer back yesterday. I just got your message, and I am catching up on my E mails. I missed chatting with you!



I am glad to hear that you are doing great socially, and that you have some friends that you spend time with. I think I am doing okay by my standards as well, which is better than nothing.



I am sorry that your orchestra group is not going so well. The schools I attended never had any orchestra or music classes, so I am jealous that you have them! I tried to learn how to play the violin back when I was 17 & 18 years old, and it was really hard for me too. I am sorry that the students in your grade are quitting the orchestra this year; that is no fun without any one participating in it any more.



I hope everything else is going better for you in school. Do you like any of your other classes better? I hope you do not have too much homework this year. I had a lot of homework when I was 13 years old, and I hated it.



I also think that Wrong Planet should have an auto-save option for posting messages. I was mad when my post was lost when I tried to submit it.



You are welcome! I like talking with you too. I do not have many conversations with people online, but I like talking with you!



Minecraft sounds like fun! Since I have not had a working computer for a week, I have not tried it yet. I still do not have a camera either, and I just watch You Tube videos, and not make them or comment on them. The only camera I have every owned was my Dad's old, large movie camera that he used to make home movies on when I was a kid. He used to make movies of Christmas & birthdays of me & my brothers. They were made on to video tapes, and you used to play them on your television. I still have the tapes of the movies, and I sometimes like to watch them again today. The only person I have ever contacted on You Tube was a writer who lived in Chicago. I bought her books, and they had her E mail address in them, so I sent her an E mail saying I liked her book, and then we became pen pals. We kept in contact for 3 years, and then she mysteriously abandoned me, and I never found out why. I tried E mailing & calling her on the telephone, but she quit responding. I never heard another word from her again, and all of her You Tube videos are long gone. Ironically, the last E mail I ever got from her concluded with her saying "I promise I am going to E mail you more often." She has probably forgotten all about me by now!



That experience at the library was interesting, and I do not know whatever happened to the employee who got in trouble. I am sorry about what happened with you & your vice principal. Lunch rooms are no fun at all. I am also sorry that you had another fire drill.



Most of the schools I attended were small, but the lunch rooms had most of the students cramped in them too. I always hated lunch time too. Most of the time, I would not even bring a lunch, and I would just eat breakfast, and then eat again after I got home. I am sorry that your friend is not in any of your classes, but you can still have lunch together. I never got to go home earlier either, and I had to suffer thru the stupid pep rallies & sports games.



I am glad you are still having fun joking with your teachers! I miss a lot of jokes too, but I always understood my teacher's jokes. During my last E mail with my old teacher, I told him about some of our old jokes from high school, and he still remembered them! He likes hearing from me too.



I never use public restrooms! I only use my own restroom, or the restroom at my Dad's house. I hate being barefoot because I am always afraid that I will step on some sharp object & hurt myself. I am also very self-conscious & I do not want any one to see my feet. I never use either of the swimming pools I have access to. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming in high school physical education. It was hard enough for me to swim with my parents & brothers around, so I can not imagine what it would be like with your teachers & classmates around.



I like playing table top games & board games, but there are some of them that I am not very good at, and I always lose them! I know that physical education class is no fun, but I hope that your physical education class is better with your nice teacher. That is a funny joke about the gorillas!



I do not know why my memory is affected by stress. I am sorry about your long-term memory & storing good memories due to stress. I hope The Masqueraders are still around today because they sound really good!



You are welcome! I was always good at reading. When I was in Kindergarten, I was the best reader in the whole class! In my old home movies that I mentioned, I got some children's books for Christmas, and I spent the whole time just reading them. I wish I still had those books.



You are welcome! Good luck on your future goals of adopting a child & going to college! College will be scary, but hopefully it will not be too bad. One of the reasons I never went to college is because it is scary.



You are welcome! Have fun playing with your new cousin during the wedding! I have only been to 2 weddings in my life. The first wedding was my aunt's wedding in 1990, when I was 5 years old. I don't really remember it very well, but we still have old pictures & the old video tape of the wedding The second wedding was my Dad's second wedding in 2011, when I was 26 years old. I remember it very well.



You are welcome! I am glad that your OCD is getting better!



You are welcome! The only parties I ever really liked were my birthday parties when I was a kid, but I still like them today because I am usually just with my Dad, and we get to have some quality time just by ourselves. I am glad you had fun at your friend's holiday party. I like to bake cookies & play board games too!



I am glad you like school this year, and that you get to talk to your favourite teacher every single day! I hope you can join his club this year. I also used to walk by my favourite teacher's class every day & I really missed being in it too, but I also used to say to them every day too. That is great that your old teachers & your math teacher are being nice to you. I am sorry about your mean homeroom teacher; I have had some mean teachers too. I am glad your math is improving; math was always difficult for me. Are you good at speaking German? I never took any language classes, but they sound like fun, except when you have to speak to the class. I never had any deaf teachers, but I am glad your physical education teacher is fun & makes jokes & says hi to you.



I am glad you are doing well socially! I also used to copy my teachers' body language & things they said too. I also had some classmates that I sometimes considered "acquaintances" but not really close friends. I am glad that you can have lunch & ride the bus with your friends! I also considered my teacher my best friend too. I hope your elite orchestra group gets better; I am sorry it is not working out.



That is okay if it is weird or disorganised; I do not mind! Get some rest after the long week, and I will wait to hear from you again. Bye! I will talk to you again soon!

Oh no! Sorry this is probably very late, but I'm sorry your computer stopped working. It's good how you were able to get a new power cord for it.

I am still doing "okay" socially. I never see people outside of school except on my birthday and Halloween, and both of those are coming up. I am excited since it is fun seeing my friends on my birthday sometimes. We are going to a restaurant and it will be very fun! I wish I could invite my teachers, but that might be a little creepy.

I had my audition! It went well I think, except for one thing. I had practiced one part of the song that was harder for hours, but she said I didn't even have to play it! I spent so much time on that one part because it was hard, and what do you know? I don't even have to play it. My orchestra teacher is trying to make the students that are quitting join this year, and she actually got some of them to join again, which is good! I wish all schools could have music classes. I am very lucky since my school provides them for us instead of us needing to get private lessons.

I do have quite a fair amount of homework, but it isn't too bad. Science is still horrible, but we had a substitute teacher today and it was so nice.

I don't have many conversations with people online except here on Wrongplanet either! You are one of my favorite people to talk to here though!

I have tapes of movies from when I was little too! I have a VHS, and I still watch them sometimes. It is fun to see myself as a baby and younger kid though. That is odd about the person you wrote to on YouTube! I wonder what happened to them! Maybe they were told to stop making content. It is pretty ironic how the last email she sent said that she would email you more often!

Thank you! I am slowly adjusting to the lunch room, but it is still not fun at all for me. I don't eat much of my lunch at all, and I don't even eat breakfast. I always find it so much easier to eat at home. Eating with other people is very stressful. I am sorry you had to suffer through all the sports games and pep rallies! That must have not been fun at all. I have to suffer through them too.

That's really cool how your teacher remembered the jokes you made! I really am going to miss my favorite teachers when I leave middle school.

I am very self-conscious about being barefoot as well! I have always had that problem. The worst thing ever was when we had to let a teacher wash our feet in preschool (I went to a Christian preschool, and it was supposed to be as if Jesus was washing the disciples feet or something like that). It is going to be horrible when I have to take swimming in high school!

I always lose certain board games too! Physical education is okay. I have another "aspie" friend that is not very good at sports either, so we normally just do the activities together. The only time we can't do that is when we have to play a game all together as a class. I am worried about my grade in gym class because he said if we don't participate, we will lose points. I try to participate, but I can never catch the ball, so I just kind of run back and forth across the field/gym.

I don't know why my memory is affected by stress either! I am still doing okay in school, but I am just not as mentally "sharp" as I used to be. I hope The Masqueraders are still around too! AGT ended, so I do not know if they have a show or something like that.

I was a good reader when I was younger too! I am okay now. I miss my old children's books too. I used to sit for hours and read them all! One time I even got punished by having all my books taken away!

Thank you! I hope college will not be that bad either!

That is cool! I have never been to a wedding before, so I do not know what it will be like.

Thank you! My OCD was better for a while, but as I predicted, that didn't last for long. I went through a huge amount of stress recently, but I am okay now. I hope it stays that way!

The only parties I like are birthday parties too! I normally only invite a few people to my party, but I don't usually have my party on my birthday. This year, I am having my party on a Friday and my birthday is a Monday. I always enjoy my birthday.

Thank you! I find out if I am in my favorite teacher's club next week! I can't wait. I am not that good at German, but I would say I am about average. The only thing I hate is when she randomly asks us things in German and we have to respond correctly in front of the whole class! Learning languages is pretty fun though!

I don't really have many close friends either. It really just depends on how people define "friend." I like to think I have around four friends including my teacher, but some people wouldn't count my friends as "friends" so I am not sure. My orchestra group is getting better! I hope I got in! I will find out next week if I am in.

Thank you! Bye! I will talk to you soon!

I try to participate, but I can never catch the ball, so I just kind of run back and forth across the field/gym.

I don't know why my memory is affected by stress either! I am still doing okay in school, but I am just not as mentally "sharp" as I used to be. I hope The Masqueraders are still around too! AGT ended, so I do not know if they have a show or something like that.

I was a good reader when I was younger too! I am okay now. I miss my old children's books too. I used to sit for hours and read them all! One time I even got punished by having all my books taken away!

Thank you! I hope college will not be that bad either!

That is cool! I have never been to a wedding before, so I do not know what it will be like.

Thank you! My OCD was better for a while, but as I predicted, that didn't last for long. I went through a huge amount of stress recently, but I am okay now. I hope it stays that way!

The only parties I like are birthday parties too! I normally only invite a few people to my party, but I don't usually have my party on my birthday. This year, I am having my party on a Friday and my birthday is a Monday. I always enjoy my birthday.

Thank you! I find out if I am in my favorite teacher's club next week! I can't wait. I am not that good at German, but I would say I am about average. The only thing I hate is when she randomly asks us things in German and we have to respond correctly in front of the whole class! Learning languages is pretty fun though!

I don't really have many close friends either. It really just depends on how people define "friend." I like to think I have around four friends including my teacher, but some people wouldn't count my friends as "friends" so I am not sure. My orchestra group is getting better! I hope I got in! I will find out next week if I am in.

Thank you! Bye! I will talk to you soon!





It is great to hear from you again. I was thinking about you because it has been a while since we talked, and I was hoping that you were doing okay. My computer is working well now, and I have returned to Wrong Planet. I check it every day.



I am glad that you are still doing "okay" socially. I am also the same way. I never see any one outside of work, or talk to them either. I do not have very many friends, but I trying to meet new people who have Asperger's syndrome. What I am doing is getting together for get-togethers on a web site called meetup.com. It is a service where you sign up for meetups based on activities that you enjoy, and you meet with other people in your community who have the same interests. I attend meetups for adults with Asperger's syndrome. The group I am in is just a small group, but I still like it. We met last Saturday at a cafe & just talked about what we have been up to recently, and the leader of the group told us about his road trip to Montana, and his trip to Glacier National Park. Their next meetup is in 3 weeks, and they have planned to go bowling. I am not very good at bowling, but it will still be nice to go.



I am excited that your birthday is coming up soon! Do you have any plans with your friends on your birthday? Do you know which restaurant you are going to or what you will eat yet? I also like Halloween too. When I was a kid, my parents used to take me & my two brothers trick-or-treating around my old neighbourhood. All of the houses would be decorated for Halloween, and we would always come home with a big bag full of candy. Most of the candy would be gone in just a few days. We would also buy pumpkins & carve them in to jack-o-lanterns. I wish I could still do those things today; they were a lot of fun. This year, I am just going to stay home & watch The Shining, which is an old horror movie from 1980, starring Jack Nicholson & Shelley Duvall, and directed by the late Stanley Kubrick.



I also wish I could have invited my teachers places when I went to school, but you are right, it would have been creepy! My parents & I actually did invite one of my old school bus drivers out for pizza back when I was 12 years old, and we had a good time.



I am glad that your audition went well, but I am sorry that you rehearsed the one part of the song that you did not have to play. That must have been frustrating. That is great that your orchestra teacher gotthe students that are quitting join the class this year. I also wish all schools could have music lessons, and I am glad that your school offers them. My schools never had music classes, and I just took private lessons at a music place near me. I tried to learn how to play the alto saxophone & later the violin, but I was never any good at either instrument, which frustrated me, so I quit taking the lessons. I still have my old violin out in my storage locker, but I never play it.



I am sorry that you have so much homework, but it is not too bad. I am also sorry that science is still horrible, and I hope it gets better soon.



It is hard for me to have conversations with people online, but I like to have conversations with the members of Wrong Planet. You are also one of my favourite people to talk to on here too! I always have a good time writing to you & sharing my experiences with you!



I still have a VHS VCR too, and I like to watch the old tapes of the home movies that my Dad made back when I was a baby & younger kid. They are fun to watch, but I sometimes get sad watching them because my mother is in them, and I really miss her. My Dad used to make home movies of Christmas & the birthdays of me & my brother. He made them on a large Panasonic Omni Movie camcorder that he would mount on his shoulder & look thru a view finder to make them.



That was very odd about the poet & writer that I used to write to on You Tube. I never knew why she stopped communicating with me, or why her You Tube videos were taken down. After she sent me that final E mail where she said she would E mail me more often, I tried contacting her three times. The first time was when I E mailed her to wish her a happy birthday & also a happy Thanksgiving, since her birthday was in November, and she never wrote back to me. The second time was two months later to tell her that one of my friends had died; I called her on the telephone & told her the bad news, but she did not answer, and I left her a message, but she never called me back or E mailed me. The third & final time I tried contacting her was on her birthday. The same thing happened again; I called her on the telephone, and she did not answer my call, so I left her a message; I wished her a happy birthday & said that I missed chatting with her, and that I wanted to talk to her again. She never called me back, and I finally just gave up on her. Clearly, she was not a very loyal person, or a woman of her word; she did not do things she said she would do. I am very loyal, and I never abandon any one. I also always do what I say I will do.



You are welcome! I am glad that the lunch room is getting better for you, but I am sorry that is still not fun. When I went to school, I would not eat very much of my lunch either, and most of the time, I never even brought a lunch. I would just eat a big breakfast & then eat later when I got home from school. It has also always been so much easier for me to eat at home, and I still get very stressed out eating with other people. Every day, I eat a big breakfast, and when I take my lunch break at work, I either go to a table outside to eat my lunch, or I eat my lunch in my car. I always bring the same food in my lunch every time I go to work at the library. I am sorry that you have to suffer thru the sports games & pep rallies too!



Yes, I still like joking with my old teacher, and I really missed them when I graduated from high school. Earlier today, while I was working at the library, I checked out a DVD that we used to talk about. It is about Koko, a famous gorilla that communicates with sign language. I am going to E mail him & tell him about it. I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla!



I am also very self-conscious about being barefoot too, and I have also always had that problem. I still do not let any one see my feet, and I always wear shoes & socks all the time. I am sorry about what happened to you with your teacher washing your feet at your Christian preschool. It sounds terrible. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming class in high school. I never had to take swimming, but I had to take a gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. and I later had to take a karate class in school. I had to be barefoot in those classes, and I hated them. I was very embarrassed & uneasy in those classes.



I am sorry that you always lose certain board games. I still like to play them, even when I lose them. I am glad that physical education is okay with your Aspie friend, and that you can do the activities together. I also hated playing games all together with my classmates too. I hope that you can get more points so your grade in gym class improves. I was also worried about my grade in gym class too. I also tried to participate, but I could never catch the ball either, and I just ran around the field too.



I hope your stress does not affect your memory for much longer, and that it gets better. I hope that you can be mentally "sharp" again. When did AGT end? Who won the grand prize?



I still like reading, and I used to read for hours & read all my books. I miss my children's books, but I shelve them at the library where I work. Sometimes, I will even put away a book that I used to have, and I still remember it! I am sorry that you got punished by having all your books taken away.



You are welcome! Good luck in college!



I hope you have fun at the wedding! You can tell me what it is like when you go to it!



You are welcome! I am sorry your OCD has gotten worse, and that you went thru stress recently. I am glad that you are better now, and I also hope it stays that way.



I do not really like parties either, and I also only like birthday parties too. I do not like having many people at my birthday party either. I hope you have a fun birthday! My birthday was also on a Monday this year too! I also enjoy my birthday too.



You are welcome. I hope you get to be in your favourite teacher's club! I am glad that you are doing okay in your German class. I am sorry that your teacher asks you things in German & makes you respond correctly. I have never learned another language before, but it sounds like fun!



I only have a few close "friends" too, but it depends on the definition of "friend". I am glad your orchestra group is getting better, and I hope you get it! Good luck getting in!



You are welcome! I am going to sleep now, and I will talk to you again soon!

Oh yeah, when I say I'm doing "great socially", it means I am doing well by my standards (which aren't very high)! :D

My practicing for the smaller orchestra group I mentioned isn't going so well! Violin is really hard! A lot of people in my grade are quitting orchestra this year.

I hope you are doing okay! I haven't heard from you in a while!





Hi, I am back. Sorry I have been away, but last week, my computer stopped working. I could not check my E mail or Wrong Planet, or do anything else on my computer either. I took it to my Dad's house, and he could not get it to work either. It turned out that there was a problem with the power supply, so we had to buy a new electrical cord for it. I just got my computer back yesterday. I just got your message, and I am catching up on my E mails. I missed chatting with you!



I am glad to hear that you are doing great socially, and that you have some friends that you spend time with. I think I am doing okay by my standards as well, which is better than nothing.



I am sorry that your orchestra group is not going so well. The schools I attended never had any orchestra or music classes, so I am jealous that you have them! I tried to learn how to play the violin back when I was 17 & 18 years old, and it was really hard for me too. I am sorry that the students in your grade are quitting the orchestra this year; that is no fun without any one participating in it any more.



I hope everything else is going better for you in school. Do you like any of your other classes better? I hope you do not have too much homework this year. I had a lot of homework when I was 13 years old, and I hated it.



I also think that Wrong Planet should have an auto-save option for posting messages. I was mad when my post was lost when I tried to submit it.



You are welcome! I like talking with you too. I do not have many conversations with people online, but I like talking with you!



Minecraft sounds like fun! Since I have not had a working computer for a week, I have not tried it yet. I still do not have a camera either, and I just watch You Tube videos, and not make them or comment on them. The only camera I have every owned was my Dad's old, large movie camera that he used to make home movies on when I was a kid. He used to make movies of Christmas & birthdays of me & my brothers. They were made on to video tapes, and you used to play them on your television. I still have the tapes of the movies, and I sometimes like to watch them again today. The only person I have ever contacted on You Tube was a writer who lived in Chicago. I bought her books, and they had her E mail address in them, so I sent her an E mail saying I liked her book, and then we became pen pals. We kept in contact for 3 years, and then she mysteriously abandoned me, and I never found out why. I tried E mailing & calling her on the telephone, but she quit responding. I never heard another word from her again, and all of her You Tube videos are long gone. Ironically, the last E mail I ever got from her concluded with her saying "I promise I am going to E mail you more often." She has probably forgotten all about me by now!



That experience at the library was interesting, and I do not know whatever happened to the employee who got in trouble. I am sorry about what happened with you & your vice principal. Lunch rooms are no fun at all. I am also sorry that you had another fire drill.



Most of the schools I attended were small, but the lunch rooms had most of the students cramped in them too. I always hated lunch time too. Most of the time, I would not even bring a lunch, and I would just eat breakfast, and then eat again after I got home. I am sorry that your friend is not in any of your classes, but you can still have lunch together. I never got to go home earlier either, and I had to suffer thru the stupid pep rallies & sports games.



I am glad you are still having fun joking with your teachers! I miss a lot of jokes too, but I always understood my teacher's jokes. During my last E mail with my old teacher, I told him about some of our old jokes from high school, and he still remembered them! He likes hearing from me too.



I never use public restrooms! I only use my own restroom, or the restroom at my Dad's house. I hate being barefoot because I am always afraid that I will step on some sharp object & hurt myself. I am also very self-conscious & I do not want any one to see my feet. I never use either of the swimming pools I have access to. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming in high school physical education. It was hard enough for me to swim with my parents & brothers around, so I can not imagine what it would be like with your teachers & classmates around.



I like playing table top games & board games, but there are some of them that I am not very good at, and I always lose them! I know that physical education class is no fun, but I hope that your physical education class is better with your nice teacher. That is a funny joke about the gorillas!



I do not know why my memory is affected by stress. I am sorry about your long-term memory & storing good memories due to stress. I hope The Masqueraders are still around today because they sound really good!



You are welcome! I was always good at reading. When I was in Kindergarten, I was the best reader in the whole class! In my old home movies that I mentioned, I got some children's books for Christmas, and I spent the whole time just reading them. I wish I still had those books.



You are welcome! Good luck on your future goals of adopting a child & going to college! College will be scary, but hopefully it will not be too bad. One of the reasons I never went to college is because it is scary.



You are welcome! Have fun playing with your new cousin during the wedding! I have only been to 2 weddings in my life. The first wedding was my aunt's wedding in 1990, when I was 5 years old. I don't really remember it very well, but we still have old pictures & the old video tape of the wedding The second wedding was my Dad's second wedding in 2011, when I was 26 years old. I remember it very well.



You are welcome! I am glad that your OCD is getting better!



You are welcome! The only parties I ever really liked were my birthday parties when I was a kid, but I still like them today because I am usually just with my Dad, and we get to have some quality time just by ourselves. I am glad you had fun at your friend's holiday party. I like to bake cookies & play board games too!



I am glad you like school this year, and that you get to talk to your favourite teacher every single day! I hope you can join his club this year. I also used to walk by my favourite teacher's class every day & I really missed being in it too, but I also used to say to them every day too. That is great that your old teachers & your math teacher are being nice to you. I am sorry about your mean homeroom teacher; I have had some mean teachers too. I am glad your math is improving; math was always difficult for me. Are you good at speaking German? I never took any language classes, but they sound like fun, except when you have to speak to the class. I never had any deaf teachers, but I am glad your physical education teacher is fun & makes jokes & says hi to you.



I am glad you are doing well socially! I also used to copy my teachers' body language & things they said too. I also had some classmates that I sometimes considered "acquaintances" but not really close friends. I am glad that you can have lunch & ride the bus with your friends! I also considered my teacher my best friend too. I hope your elite orchestra group gets better; I am sorry it is not working out.



That is okay if it is weird or disorganised; I do not mind! Get some rest after the long week, and I will wait to hear from you again. Bye! I will talk to you again soon!



Oh no! Sorry this is probably very late, but I'm sorry your computer stopped working. It's good how you were able to get a new power cord for it.

I am still doing "okay" socially. I never see people outside of school except on my birthday and Halloween, and both of those are coming up. I am excited since it is fun seeing my friends on my birthday sometimes. We are going to a restaurant and it will be very fun! I wish I could invite my teachers, but that might be a little creepy.

I had my audition! It went well I think, except for one thing. I had practiced one part of the song that was harder for hours, but she said I didn't even have to play it! I spent so much time on that one part because it was hard, and what do you know? I don't even have to play it. My orchestra teacher is trying to make the students that are quitting join this year, and she actually got some of them to join again, which is good! I wish all schools could have music classes. I am very lucky since my school provides them for us instead of us needing to get private lessons.

I do have quite a fair amount of homework, but it isn't too bad. Science is still horrible, but we had a substitute teacher today and it was so nice.

I don't have many conversations with people online except here on Wrongplanet either! You are one of my favorite people to talk to here though!

I have tapes of movies from when I was little too! I have a VHS, and I still watch them sometimes. It is fun to see myself as a baby and younger kid though. That is odd about the person you wrote to on YouTube! I wonder what happened to them! Maybe they were told to stop making content. It is pretty ironic how the last email she sent said that she would email you more often!

Thank you! I am slowly adjusting to the lunch room, but it is still not fun at all for me. I don't eat much of my lunch at all, and I don't even eat breakfast. I always find it so much easier to eat at home. Eating with other people is very stressful. I am sorry you had to suffer through all the sports games and pep rallies! That must have not been fun at all. I have to suffer through them too.

That's really cool how your teacher remembered the jokes you made! I really am going to miss my favorite teachers when I leave middle school.

I am very self-conscious about being barefoot as well! I have always had that problem. The worst thing ever was when we had to let a teacher wash our feet in preschool (I went to a Christian preschool, and it was supposed to be as if Jesus was washing the disciples feet or something like that). It is going to be horrible when I have to take swimming in high school!

I always lose certain board games too! Physical education is okay. I have another "aspie" friend that is not very good at sports either, so we normally just do the activities together. The only time we can't do that is when we have to play a game all together as a class. I am worried about my grade in gym class because he said if we don't participate, we will lose points.

Hi! I am sorry I have not replied in a while! I missed talking to you, but I could never find time to reply with all my homework! I don't have any homework this weekend, though, so I am able to reply now. I am glad your computer is working again.

I don't have very many friends either. It honestly depends on how "friend" and "acquaintance" are defined. I can't tell if some people are friends or acquaintances. I still like talking to people at school sometimes, so I guess it doesn't matter if they are "friends" or not. That sounds like a cool website! I am glad you still like the group you are in, even if it is small. I enjoy small groups much more than large groups anyway. The meeting you had at the cafe sounds like it would be fun! It is cool how the leader got to take a trip to Montana! I am not very good at bowling either! One time I went to a bowling alley with my dad, and I threw the bowling ball down another person's lane. That was pretty embarrassing, but it was still funny. I hope you have a nice time at your next meetup.

Thank you! I am excited as well. I am going to go see a movie with my mom and my friends, and we are going to Red Robin (a hamburger restaurant). It will hopefully be fun! I like Halloween too. My dad always takes me, my friend I sit with on the bus, and my little sister around the neighborhood for Halloween. There are some really cool decorations on some of the houses. I like getting candy too. We also buy pumpkins and carve them into jack-o-lanterns. I carved a squid face into my pumpkin last year! That sounds like a fun way to spend Halloween- I like watching old horror movies too.

It would be kind of weird to invite my teachers to my birthday! I agree! That is cool how you had pizza with your old bus driver though. I wish I could do that!

Thank you! It was frustrating, but I do not mind as much anymore. I am also glad she was able to get some of the students who were going to quit to join again. I tried to learn to play the clarinet before, but I was never good at it either. I am sorry you were frustrated by learning those instruments! They are really hard to play.

Thank you! I hope science gets better soon too.

I always have a great time talking here as well! I wish I could post more often, but I still have so much homework during the week!

I am so sorry that sometimes you get sad watching the movies your dad made. It must be really hard to lose somebody you love, and I am sorry you had to go through that. I am glad you still enjoy watching them sometimes though. My dad always used to make movies of me on my birthday too. My dad used a video camera too! I sometimes wish he would still make them, but now my mom just takes pictures of me on my birthday.

That is weird about the poet and writer you used to talk to. I am sorry she never wrote or called back! I am a loyal person too, and my friends from elementary school have abandoned me before, and I never knew why. I really miss them too. Clearly they weren't very loyal either.

I don't eat a lot of my lunch either! I don't eat breakfast, but I also eat a lot when I get home. It is always easier for me to eat at home as well. I wish I could eat the same food every day too, but my mom says it isn't healthy, since I don't eat a lot of healthy food for lunch. I used to always get the same sandwich from the cafeteria at my school, but lately I have been afraid of choking (it is a pretty big sandwich) so I get something else. It is just too stressful to eat around other people. I am sorry you find it stressful too!

That is cool how you checked out a DVD about something you used to talk about! I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla too.

I am sorry you had to take gymnastics at the Y.M.C.A and a karate class in school! That must have not been very fun, since you were embarrassed and uneasy. I hate being barefoot too.

I still like to play the board games I lose at too! Thank you! I am glad my friend is in my class, and that we can just play the sports by ourselves sometimes. It is hard to participate when I am terrible at sports! I am sorry it was hard for you too. At least I get exercise from running back and forth across the field.

Thank you! I can still remember most things, but I am not as good as I used to be. AGT ended on September 20th, and Darci Lynne Farmer (a singing ventriloquist) won the 1 million dollars! She is an amazing ventriloquist!

That is cool how you still put away children's books at the library where you work! That is okay, it was a while ago when all my books were taken away, and I now have them back.

Thank you! I will tell you all about the wedding when I go to it!

Thank you! I am glad my stress is not as bad anymore either.

Thank you! I hope I have a good time on my birthday. I am glad you enjoy your birthday too.

Thank you! I will find out on Tuesday if I am in his club, I think. Thank you! I am learning a lot of German, and it is fun to say things in German too!

I don't know how to define "friend" either! I only have a few close friends like you. Thank you! I will find out Thursday if I get into my orchestra group.

Bye! I hope you had a nice day, and I will talk to you again soon too!

Oh yeah, when I say I'm doing "great socially", it means I am doing well by my standards (which aren't very high)! :D

My practicing for the smaller orchestra group I mentioned isn't going so well! Violin is really hard! A lot of people in my grade are quitting orchestra this year.

I hope you are doing okay! I haven't heard from you in a while!





Hi, I am back. Sorry I have been away, but last week, my computer stopped working. I could not check my E mail or Wrong Planet, or do anything else on my computer either. I took it to my Dad's house, and he could not get it to work either. It turned out that there was a problem with the power supply, so we had to buy a new electrical cord for it. I just got my computer back yesterday. I just got your message, and I am catching up on my E mails. I missed chatting with you!



I am glad to hear that you are doing great socially, and that you have some friends that you spend time with. I think I am doing okay by my standards as well, which is better than nothing.



I am sorry that your orchestra group is not going so well. The schools I attended never had any orchestra or music classes, so I am jealous that you have them! I tried to learn how to play the violin back when I was 17 & 18 years old, and it was really hard for me too. I am sorry that the students in your grade are quitting the orchestra this year; that is no fun without any one participating in it any more.



I hope everything else is going better for you in school. Do you like any of your other classes better? I hope you do not have too much homework this year. I had a lot of homework when I was 13 years old, and I hated it.



I also think that Wrong Planet should have an auto-save option for posting messages. I was mad when my post was lost when I tried to submit it.



You are welcome! I like talking with you too. I do not have many conversations with people online, but I like talking with you!



Minecraft sounds like fun! Since I have not had a working computer for a week, I have not tried it yet. I still do not have a camera either, and I just watch You Tube videos, and not make them or comment on them. The only camera I have every owned was my Dad's old, large movie camera that he used to make home movies on when I was a kid. He used to make movies of Christmas & birthdays of me & my brothers. They were made on to video tapes, and you used to play them on your television. I still have the tapes of the movies, and I sometimes like to watch them again today. The only person I have ever contacted on You Tube was a writer who lived in Chicago. I bought her books, and they had her E mail address in them, so I sent her an E mail saying I liked her book, and then we became pen pals. We kept in contact for 3 years, and then she mysteriously abandoned me, and I never found out why. I tried E mailing & calling her on the telephone, but she quit responding. I never heard another word from her again, and all of her You Tube videos are long gone. Ironically, the last E mail I ever got from her concluded with her saying "I promise I am going to E mail you more often." She has probably forgotten all about me by now!



That experience at the library was interesting, and I do not know whatever happened to the employee who got in trouble. I am sorry about what happened with you & your vice principal. Lunch rooms are no fun at all. I am also sorry that you had another fire drill.



Most of the schools I attended were small, but the lunch rooms had most of the students cramped in them too. I always hated lunch time too. Most of the time, I would not even bring a lunch, and I would just eat breakfast, and then eat again after I got home. I am sorry that your friend is not in any of your classes, but you can still have lunch together. I never got to go home earlier either, and I had to suffer thru the stupid pep rallies & sports games.



I am glad you are still having fun joking with your teachers! I miss a lot of jokes too, but I always understood my teacher's jokes. During my last E mail with my old teacher, I told him about some of our old jokes from high school, and he still remembered them! He likes hearing from me too.



I never use public restrooms! I only use my own restroom, or the restroom at my Dad's house. I hate being barefoot because I am always afraid that I will step on some sharp object & hurt myself. I am also very self-conscious & I do not want any one to see my feet. I never use either of the swimming pools I have access to. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming in high school physical education. It was hard enough for me to swim with my parents & brothers around, so I can not imagine what it would be like with your teachers & classmates around.



I like playing table top games & board games, but there are some of them that I am not very good at, and I always lose them! I know that physical education class is no fun, but I hope that your physical education class is better with your nice teacher. That is a funny joke about the gorillas!



I do not know why my memory is affected by stress. I am sorry about your long-term memory & storing good memories due to stress. I hope The Masqueraders are still around today because they sound really good!



You are welcome! I was always good at reading. When I was in Kindergarten, I was the best reader in the whole class! In my old home movies that I mentioned, I got some children's books for Christmas, and I spent the whole time just reading them. I wish I still had those books.



You are welcome! Good luck on your future goals of adopting a child & going to college! College will be scary, but hopefully it will not be too bad. One of the reasons I never went to college is because it is scary.



You are welcome! Have fun playing with your new cousin during the wedding! I have only been to 2 weddings in my life. The first wedding was my aunt's wedding in 1990, when I was 5 years old. I don't really remember it very well, but we still have old pictures & the old video tape of the wedding The second wedding was my Dad's second wedding in 2011, when I was 26 years old. I remember it very well.



You are welcome! I am glad that your OCD is getting better!



You are welcome! The only parties I ever really liked were my birthday parties when I was a kid, but I still like them today because I am usually just with my Dad, and we get to have some quality time just by ourselves. I am glad you had fun at your friend's holiday party. I like to bake cookies & play board games too!



I am glad you like school this year, and that you get to talk to your favourite teacher every single day! I hope you can join his club this year. I also used to walk by my favourite teacher's class every day & I really missed being in it too, but I also used to say to them every day too. That is great that your old teachers & your math teacher are being nice to you. I am sorry about your mean homeroom teacher; I have had some mean teachers too. I am glad your math is improving; math was always difficult for me. Are you good at speaking German? I never took any language classes, but they sound like fun, except when you have to speak to the class. I never had any deaf teachers, but I am glad your physical education teacher is fun & makes jokes & says hi to you.



I am glad you are doing well socially! I also used to copy my teachers' body language & things they said too. I also had some classmates that I sometimes considered "acquaintances" but not really close friends. I am glad that you can have lunch & ride the bus with your friends! I also considered my teacher my best friend too. I hope your elite orchestra group gets better; I am sorry it is not working out.



That is okay if it is weird or disorganised; I do not mind! Get some rest after the long week, and I will wait to hear from you again. Bye! I will talk to you again soon!



Oh no! Sorry this is probably very late, but I'm sorry your computer stopped working. It's good how you were able to get a new power cord for it.

I am still doing "okay" socially. I never see people outside of school except on my birthday and Halloween, and both of those are coming up. I am excited since it is fun seeing my friends on my birthday sometimes. We are going to a restaurant and it will be very fun! I wish I could invite my teachers, but that might be a little creepy.

I had my audition! It went well I think, except for one thing. I had practiced one part of the song that was harder for hours, but she said I didn't even have to play it! I spent so much time on that one part because it was hard, and what do you know? I don't even have to play it. My orchestra teacher is trying to make the students that are quitting join this year, and she actually got some of them to join again, which is good! I wish all schools could have music classes. I am very lucky since my school provides them for us instead of us needing to get private lessons.

I do have quite a fair amount of homework, but it isn't too bad. Science is still horrible, but we had a substitute teacher today and it was so nice.

I don't have many conversations with people online except here on Wrongplanet either! You are one of my favorite people to talk to here though!

I have tapes of movies from when I was little too! I have a VHS, and I still watch them sometimes. It is fun to see myself as a baby and younger kid though. That is odd about the person you wrote to on YouTube! I wonder what happened to them! Maybe they were told to stop making content. It is pretty ironic how the last email she sent said that she would email you more often!

Thank you! I am slowly adjusting to the lunch room, but it is still not fun at all for me. I don't eat much of my lunch at all, and I don't even eat breakfast. I always find it so much easier to eat at home. Eating with other people is very stressful. I am sorry you had to suffer through all the sports games and pep rallies! That must have not been fun at all. I have to suffer through them too.

That's really cool how your teacher remembered the jokes you made! I really am going to miss my favorite teachers when I leave middle school.

I am very self-conscious about being barefoot as well! I have always had that problem. The worst thing ever was when we had to let a teacher wash our feet in preschool (I went to a Christian preschool, and it was supposed to be as if Jesus was washing the disciples feet or something like that). It is going to be horrible when I have to take swimming in high school!

I always lose certain board games too! Physical education is okay. I have another "aspie" friend that is not very good at sports either, so we normally just do the activities together. The only time we can't do that is when we have to play a game all together as a class. I am worried about my grade in gym class because he said if we don't participate, we will lose points. I try to participate, but I can never catch the ball, so I just kind of run back and forth across the field/gym.

I don't know why my memory is affected by stress either! I am still doing okay in school, but I am just not as mentally "sharp" as I used to be. I hope The Masqueraders are still around too! AGT ended, so I do not know if they have a show or something like that.

I was a good reader when I was younger too! I am okay now. I miss my old children's books too. I used to sit for hours and read them all! One time I even got punished by having all my books taken away!

Thank you! I hope college will not be that bad either!

That is cool! I have never been to a wedding before, so I do not know what it will be like.

Thank you! My OCD was better for a while, but as I predicted, that didn't last for long. I went through a huge amount of stress recently, but I am okay now. I hope it stays that way!

The only parties I like are birthday parties too! I normally only invite a few people to my party, but I don't usually have my party on my birthday. This year, I am having my party on a Friday and my birthday is a Monday. I always enjoy my birthday.

Thank you! I find out if I am in my favorite teacher's club next week! I can't wait. I am not that good at German, but I would say I am about average. The only thing I hate is when she randomly asks us things in German and we have to respond correctly in front of the whole class! Learning languages is pretty fun though!

I don't really have many close friends either. It really just depends on how people define "friend." I like to think I have around four friends including my teacher, but some people wouldn't count my friends as "friends" so I am not sure. My orchestra group is getting better! I hope I got in! I will find out next week if I am in.

Thank you! Bye! I will talk to you soon!





It is great to hear from you again. I was thinking about you because it has been a while since we talked, and I was hoping that you were doing okay. My computer is working well now, and I have returned to Wrong Planet. I check it every day.



I am glad that you are still doing "okay" socially. I am also the same way. I never see any one outside of work, or talk to them either. I do not have very many friends, but I trying to meet new people who have Asperger's syndrome. What I am doing is getting together for get-togethers on a web site called meetup.com. It is a service where you sign up for meetups based on activities that you enjoy, and you meet with other people in your community who have the same interests. I attend meetups for adults with Asperger's syndrome. The group I am in is just a small group, but I still like it. We met last Saturday at a cafe & just talked about what we have been up to recently, and the leader of the group told us about his road trip to Montana, and his trip to Glacier National Park. Their next meetup is in 3 weeks, and they have planned to go bowling. I am not very good at bowling, but it will still be nice to go.



I am excited that your birthday is coming up soon! Do you have any plans with your friends on your birthday? Do you know which restaurant you are going to or what you will eat yet? I also like Halloween too. When I was a kid, my parents used to take me & my two brothers trick-or-treating around my old neighbourhood. All of the houses would be decorated for Halloween, and we would always come home with a big bag full of candy. Most of the candy would be gone in just a few days. We would also buy pumpkins & carve them in to jack-o-lanterns. I wish I could still do those things today; they were a lot of fun. This year, I am just going to stay home & watch The Shining, which is an old horror movie from 1980, starring Jack Nicholson & Shelley Duvall, and directed by the late Stanley Kubrick.



I also wish I could have invited my teachers places when I went to school, but you are right, it would have been creepy! My parents & I actually did invite one of my old school bus drivers out for pizza back when I was 12 years old, and we had a good time.



I am glad that your audition went well, but I am sorry that you rehearsed the one part of the song that you did not have to play. That must have been frustrating. That is great that your orchestra teacher gotthe students that are quitting join the class this year. I also wish all schools could have music lessons, and I am glad that your school offers them. My schools never had music classes, and I just took private lessons at a music place near me. I tried to learn how to play the alto saxophone & later the violin, but I was never any good at either instrument, which frustrated me, so I quit taking the lessons. I still have my old violin out in my storage locker, but I never play it.



I am sorry that you have so much homework, but it is not too bad. I am also sorry that science is still horrible, and I hope it gets better soon.



It is hard for me to have conversations with people online, but I like to have conversations with the members of Wrong Planet. You are also one of my favourite people to talk to on here too! I always have a good time writing to you & sharing my experiences with you!



I still have a VHS VCR too, and I like to watch the old tapes of the home movies that my Dad made back when I was a baby & younger kid. They are fun to watch, but I sometimes get sad watching them because my mother is in them, and I really miss her. My Dad used to make home movies of Christmas & the birthdays of me & my brother. He made them on a large Panasonic Omni Movie camcorder that he would mount on his shoulder & look thru a view finder to make them.



That was very odd about the poet & writer that I used to write to on You Tube. I never knew why she stopped communicating with me, or why her You Tube videos were taken down. After she sent me that final E mail where she said she would E mail me more often, I tried contacting her three times. The first time was when I E mailed her to wish her a happy birthday & also a happy Thanksgiving, since her birthday was in November, and she never wrote back to me. The second time was two months later to tell her that one of my friends had died; I called her on the telephone & told her the bad news, but she did not answer, and I left her a message, but she never called me back or E mailed me. The third & final time I tried contacting her was on her birthday. The same thing happened again; I called her on the telephone, and she did not answer my call, so I left her a message; I wished her a happy birthday & said that I missed chatting with her, and that I wanted to talk to her again. She never called me back, and I finally just gave up on her. Clearly, she was not a very loyal person, or a woman of her word; she did not do things she said she would do. I am very loyal, and I never abandon any one. I also always do what I say I will do.



You are welcome! I am glad that the lunch room is getting better for you, but I am sorry that is still not fun. When I went to school, I would not eat very much of my lunch either, and most of the time, I never even brought a lunch. I would just eat a big breakfast & then eat later when I got home from school. It has also always been so much easier for me to eat at home, and I still get very stressed out eating with other people. Every day, I eat a big breakfast, and when I take my lunch break at work, I either go to a table outside to eat my lunch, or I eat my lunch in my car. I always bring the same food in my lunch every time I go to work at the library. I am sorry that you have to suffer thru the sports games & pep rallies too!



Yes, I still like joking with my old teacher, and I really missed them when I graduated from high school. Earlier today, while I was working at the library, I checked out a DVD that we used to talk about. It is about Koko, a famous gorilla that communicates with sign language. I am going to E mail him & tell him about it. I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla!



I am also very self-conscious about being barefoot too, and I have also always had that problem. I still do not let any one see my feet, and I always wear shoes & socks all the time. I am sorry about what happened to you with your teacher washing your feet at your Christian preschool. It sounds terrible. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming class in high school. I never had to take swimming, but I had to take a gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. and I later had to take a karate class in school. I had to be barefoot in those classes, and I hated them. I was very embarrassed & uneasy in those classes.



I am sorry that you always lose certain board games. I still like to play them, even when I lose them. I am glad that physical education is okay with your Aspie friend, and that you can do the activities together. I also hated playing games all together with my classmates too. I hope that you can get more points so your grade in gym class improves. I was also worried about my grade in gym class too. I also tried to participate, but I could never catch the ball either, and I just ran around the field too.



I hope your stress does not affect your memory for much longer, and that it gets better. I hope that you can be mentally "sharp" again. When did AGT end? Who won the grand prize?



I still like reading, and I used to read for hours & read all my books. I miss my children's books, but I shelve them at the library where I work. Sometimes, I will even put away a book that I used to have, and I still remember it! I am sorry that you got punished by having all your books taken away.



You are welcome! Good luck in college!



I hope you have fun at the wedding! You can tell me what it is like when you go to it!



You are welcome! I am sorry your OCD has gotten worse, and that you went thru stress recently. I am glad that you are better now, and I also hope it stays that way.



I do not really like parties either, and I also only like birthday parties too. I do not like having many people at my birthday party either. I hope you have a fun birthday! My birthday was also on a Monday this year too! I also enjoy my birthday too.



You are welcome. I hope you get to be in your favourite teacher's club! I am glad that you are doing okay in your German class. I am sorry that your teacher asks you things in German & makes you respond correctly. I have never learned another language before, but it sounds like fun!



I only have a few close "friends" too, but it depends on the definition of "friend". I am glad your orchestra group is getting better, and I hope you get it! Good luck getting in!



You are welcome! I am going to sleep now, and I will talk to you again soon!


Hi! I am sorry I have not replied in a while! I missed talking to you, but I could never find time to reply with all my homework! I don't have any homework this weekend, though, so I am able to reply now. I am glad your computer is working again.

I don't have very many friends either. It honestly depends on how "friend" and "acquaintance" are defined. I can't tell if some people are friends or acquaintances. I still like talking to people at school sometimes, so I guess it doesn't matter if they are "friends" or not. That sounds like a cool website! I am glad you still like the group you are in, even if it is small. I enjoy small groups much more than large groups anyway. The meeting you had at the cafe sounds like it would be fun! It is cool how the leader got to take a trip to Montana! I am not very good at bowling either! One time I went to a bowling alley with my dad, and I threw the bowling ball down another person's lane. That was pretty embarrassing, but it was still funny. I hope you have a nice time at your next meetup.

Thank you! I am excited as well. I am going to go see a movie with my mom and my friends, and we are going to Red Robin (a hamburger restaurant). It will hopefully be fun! I like Halloween too. My dad always takes me, my friend I sit with on the bus, and my little sister around the neighborhood for Halloween. There are some really cool decorations on some of the houses. I like getting candy too. We also buy pumpkins and carve them into jack-o-lanterns. I carved a squid face into my pumpkin last year! That sounds like a fun way to spend Halloween- I like watching old horror movies too.

It would be kind of weird to invite my teachers to my birthday! I agree! That is cool how you had pizza with your old bus driver though. I wish I could do that!

Thank you! It was frustrating, but I do not mind as much anymore. I am also glad she was able to get some of the students who were going to quit to join again. I tried to learn to play the clarinet before, but I was never good at it either. I am sorry you were frustrated by learning those instruments! They are really hard to play.

Thank you! I hope science gets better soon too.

I always have a great time talking here as well! I wish I could post more often, but I still have so much homework during the week!

I am so sorry that sometimes you get sad watching the movies your dad made. It must be really hard to lose somebody you love, and I am sorry you had to go through that. I am glad you still enjoy watching them sometimes though. My dad always used to make movies of me on my birthday too. My dad used a video camera too! I sometimes wish he would still make them, but now my mom just takes pictures of me on my birthday.

That is weird about the poet and writer you used to talk to. I am sorry she never wrote or called back! I am a loyal person too, and my friends from elementary school have abandoned me before, and I never knew why. I really miss them too. Clearly they weren't very loyal either.

I don't eat a lot of my lunch either! I don't eat breakfast, but I also eat a lot when I get home. It is always easier for me to eat at home as well. I wish I could eat the same food every day too, but my mom says it isn't healthy, since I don't eat a lot of healthy food for lunch. I used to always get the same sandwich from the cafeteria at my school, but lately I have been afraid of choking (it is a pretty big sandwich) so I get something else. It is just too stressful to eat around other people. I am sorry you find it stressful too!

That is cool how you checked out a DVD about something you used to talk about! I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla too.

I am sorry you had to take gymnastics at the Y.M.C.A and a karate class in school! That must have not been very fun, since you were embarrassed and uneasy. I hate being barefoot too.

I still like to play the board games I lose at too! Thank you! I am glad my friend is in my class, and that we can just play the sports by ourselves sometimes. It is hard to participate when I am terrible at sports! I am sorry it was hard for you too. At least I get exercise from running back and forth across the field.

Thank you! I can still remember most things, but I am not as good as I used to be. AGT ended on September 20th, and Darci Lynne Farmer (a singing ventriloquist) won the 1 million dollars! She is an amazing ventriloquist!

That is cool how you still put away children's books at the library where you work! That is okay, it was a while ago when all my books were taken away, and I now have them back.

Thank you! I will tell you all about the wedding when I go to it!

Thank you! I am glad my stress is not as bad anymore either.

Thank you! I hope I have a good time on my birthday. I am glad you enjoy your birthday too.

Thank you! I will find out on Tuesday if I am in his club, I think. Thank you! I am learning a lot of German, and it is fun to say things in German too!

I don't know how to define "friend" either! I only have a few close friends like you. Thank you! I will find out Thursday if I get into my orchestra group.

Bye! I hope you had a nice day, and I will talk to you again soon too!





Hi! I just got your message. Right now, I am eating my dinner while I am typing. Every night, I always cook my own dinner at my home. I like it a lot better than eating out & having other people around.



I was waiting for your reply, but I am glad to hear from you again, and I am also glad that you are doing well. I am sorry that you have so much homework, but I am glad you have no homework this weekend. I would sometimes have to do homework on weekends too, and I hated it. My computer works well now, and I am glad my Dad could help me with getting it working again.



I also get confused on how people define "friends" and "acquaintances," and I can not really tell the difference either. Maybe it does not really matter if you still like talking with them or spending time with them. I highly recommend meetup.com if you ever have the time, and you may find a group close to you that you like going to. I have only found one group for adults with Asperger's syndrome that I like in San Diego, but I have also found a few new groups that I am going to try out when they have their first meetup. Last year, I was in another meetup group that I did not like at all, so I quit going to that group. I also like going to small groups better than large groups too. My meetup at the cafe was fun, and we had a good time talking. The leader had an interesting story about his road trip to Montana. That was funny when your Dad took you bowling! It sounds embarrassing! I hope my bowling meetup is fun. My Dad offered to take me to the meetup because it is in a city that is about an hour's drive away from where I live, and I do not know how to get there.



You are welcome! Do you know what movie you are going to see with your Mom & your friends yet? I have never been to Red Robin before; they must not have them in San Diego. I hope you have fun! I also hope you, your Dad, your friend, and your sister have fun going out on Halloween! That is cool that you made a squid face jack-o-lantern in to your pumpkin last year! The complex where I live does not decorate or have any kids around, so there is not much for me to do at my place. My mother lived in a neighbourhood with a lot of kids, and the houses all had cool decorations. We used to just stay home & hand out candy. Back on Halloween of 2009, we were watching television, and every time we sat back down after some kids left our house, the door bell would ring again, and we would have to give out more candy! We actually ran out of candy that year, so we turned off all of the lights & hid upstairs in our bedrooms so it would look like we were not home from the outside!



I hope you have a fun time on your birthday, even if you can not invite your teachers! I was in the sixth grade when I went to the Pizza Hut with my school bus driver, back in 1997. I was 12 years old. My bus driver's name was Joe; I still remember his name.



You are welcome! I am glad that your music class is going better & that your teacher got the students to come back. I am sorry that you were not good at playing the clarinet. I always had trouble learning music & instruments too.



You are welcome! Good luck with your science class.



I like talking with you on here too! I understand that you have a lot of homework, but I will always be here. I will just wait to hear from you.



Thank you! I have mixed feelings whenever I watch the old home movies that my Dad made on his camera when I was a kid. I like to remember the good times of my childhood, but seeing my mother again makes me sad because she is gone. I think of her every day. She died four years ago, and she was 60 years old. She had HIV. She was a nurse, and my family thinks that she got the virus from being exposed to patients that she cared for. I wish I could see her again, talk to her again, and spend time with her & do fun things again. I still like watching the old movies again though. Do you ever watch your old movies that your Dad made? Do you also like taking pictures with your Mom?



I do not know why that writer abandoned me. As far as I know, she has not written any new books since I last heard from her. She also has no You Tube videos any more. I am sorry that your friends from elementary school abandoned you. It seems like no one has any loyalty any more, except for people like you & me.



I like to eat breakfast, but whenever I go to work, I always have the same lunch every day, and it is always a small lunch. I prefer to eat alone, and I like eating at home better than restaurants or with other people around. I also prefer to eat my own food that I buy at the grocery store or cook at home instead of someone else's food. I have been making an effort to eat healthier too. I am sorry that you are afraid of choking on your sandwich. The public elementary school I attended had a cafeteria, but I did not like the food they served, so I always brought my own lunch.



I am going to watch the DVD about Koko the gorilla tomorrow or some time within the next few days. I will ask my old teacher if he remembers Koko the gorilla. We first heard about Koko the gorilla in a story which was in one of my school work books.



I never liked the gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. or the karate class at all. I hated being barefoot & having people around me seeing my feet.



I am glad you still like the board games! They are fun to play, even if you lose them! It is great that your friend is in your class & you can both play the sports together. I was terrible at sports, but I still liked at least getting exercise from running around the field.



You are welcome! I hope your memory gets better. That's cool about the show & how she won 1 million dollars!



I like putting children's books away at the library. They are fun to read. I am glad you got your books back after they were taken from you.



You are welcome! I will wait to here about the wedding!



You are welcome! Stress is no fun at all, and I am glad it is better for you.



You are welcome! You can tell me about your birthday! I like my birthdays too!



You are welcome! I hope you get in his club. You are welcome! I am glad you like speaking German!



It can be confusing trying to determine who are "friends." I am glad that I have at lease a few close friends. You are welcome! I hope you get in to your orchestra group.



Bye! I hope you had a good weekend too. Right now, I am watching reruns of a television show that I used to watch with my mother called Forensic Files. I am going to watch the show, and then wash my dishes, and go to sleep. I have to go to work at the library early tomorrow morning. Talk to you again soon!

Oh yeah, when I say I'm doing "great socially", it means I am doing well by my standards (which aren't very high)! :D

My practicing for the smaller orchestra group I mentioned isn't going so well! Violin is really hard! A lot of people in my grade are quitting orchestra this year.

I hope you are doing okay! I haven't heard from you in a while!





Hi, I am back. Sorry I have been away, but last week, my computer stopped working. I could not check my E mail or Wrong Planet, or do anything else on my computer either. I took it to my Dad's house, and he could not get it to work either. It turned out that there was a problem with the power supply, so we had to buy a new electrical cord for it. I just got my computer back yesterday. I just got your message, and I am catching up on my E mails. I missed chatting with you!



I am glad to hear that you are doing great socially, and that you have some friends that you spend time with. I think I am doing okay by my standards as well, which is better than nothing.



I am sorry that your orchestra group is not going so well. The schools I attended never had any orchestra or music classes, so I am jealous that you have them! I tried to learn how to play the violin back when I was 17 & 18 years old, and it was really hard for me too. I am sorry that the students in your grade are quitting the orchestra this year; that is no fun without any one participating in it any more.



I hope everything else is going better for you in school. Do you like any of your other classes better? I hope you do not have too much homework this year. I had a lot of homework when I was 13 years old, and I hated it.



I also think that Wrong Planet should have an auto-save option for posting messages. I was mad when my post was lost when I tried to submit it.



You are welcome! I like talking with you too. I do not have many conversations with people online, but I like talking with you!



Minecraft sounds like fun! Since I have not had a working computer for a week, I have not tried it yet. I still do not have a camera either, and I just watch You Tube videos, and not make them or comment on them. The only camera I have every owned was my Dad's old, large movie camera that he used to make home movies on when I was a kid. He used to make movies of Christmas & birthdays of me & my brothers. They were made on to video tapes, and you used to play them on your television. I still have the tapes of the movies, and I sometimes like to watch them again today. The only person I have ever contacted on You Tube was a writer who lived in Chicago. I bought her books, and they had her E mail address in them, so I sent her an E mail saying I liked her book, and then we became pen pals. We kept in contact for 3 years, and then she mysteriously abandoned me, and I never found out why. I tried E mailing & calling her on the telephone, but she quit responding. I never heard another word from her again, and all of her You Tube videos are long gone. Ironically, the last E mail I ever got from her concluded with her saying "I promise I am going to E mail you more often." She has probably forgotten all about me by now!



That experience at the library was interesting, and I do not know whatever happened to the employee who got in trouble. I am sorry about what happened with you & your vice principal. Lunch rooms are no fun at all. I am also sorry that you had another fire drill.



Most of the schools I attended were small, but the lunch rooms had most of the students cramped in them too. I always hated lunch time too. Most of the time, I would not even bring a lunch, and I would just eat breakfast, and then eat again after I got home. I am sorry that your friend is not in any of your classes, but you can still have lunch together. I never got to go home earlier either, and I had to suffer thru the stupid pep rallies & sports games.



I am glad you are still having fun joking with your teachers! I miss a lot of jokes too, but I always understood my teacher's jokes. During my last E mail with my old teacher, I told him about some of our old jokes from high school, and he still remembered them! He likes hearing from me too.



I never use public restrooms! I only use my own restroom, or the restroom at my Dad's house. I hate being barefoot because I am always afraid that I will step on some sharp object & hurt myself. I am also very self-conscious & I do not want any one to see my feet. I never use either of the swimming pools I have access to. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming in high school physical education. It was hard enough for me to swim with my parents & brothers around, so I can not imagine what it would be like with your teachers & classmates around.



I like playing table top games & board games, but there are some of them that I am not very good at, and I always lose them! I know that physical education class is no fun, but I hope that your physical education class is better with your nice teacher. That is a funny joke about the gorillas!



I do not know why my memory is affected by stress. I am sorry about your long-term memory & storing good memories due to stress. I hope The Masqueraders are still around today because they sound really good!



You are welcome! I was always good at reading. When I was in Kindergarten, I was the best reader in the whole class! In my old home movies that I mentioned, I got some children's books for Christmas, and I spent the whole time just reading them. I wish I still had those books.



You are welcome! Good luck on your future goals of adopting a child & going to college! College will be scary, but hopefully it will not be too bad. One of the reasons I never went to college is because it is scary.



You are welcome! Have fun playing with your new cousin during the wedding! I have only been to 2 weddings in my life. The first wedding was my aunt's wedding in 1990, when I was 5 years old. I don't really remember it very well, but we still have old pictures & the old video tape of the wedding The second wedding was my Dad's second wedding in 2011, when I was 26 years old. I remember it very well.



You are welcome! I am glad that your OCD is getting better!



You are welcome! The only parties I ever really liked were my birthday parties when I was a kid, but I still like them today because I am usually just with my Dad, and we get to have some quality time just by ourselves. I am glad you had fun at your friend's holiday party. I like to bake cookies & play board games too!



I am glad you like school this year, and that you get to talk to your favourite teacher every single day! I hope you can join his club this year. I also used to walk by my favourite teacher's class every day & I really missed being in it too, but I also used to say to them every day too. That is great that your old teachers & your math teacher are being nice to you. I am sorry about your mean homeroom teacher; I have had some mean teachers too. I am glad your math is improving; math was always difficult for me. Are you good at speaking German? I never took any language classes, but they sound like fun, except when you have to speak to the class. I never had any deaf teachers, but I am glad your physical education teacher is fun & makes jokes & says hi to you.



I am glad you are doing well socially! I also used to copy my teachers' body language & things they said too. I also had some classmates that I sometimes considered "acquaintances" but not really close friends. I am glad that you can have lunch & ride the bus with your friends! I also considered my teacher my best friend too. I hope your elite orchestra group gets better; I am sorry it is not working out.



That is okay if it is weird or disorganised; I do not mind! Get some rest after the long week, and I will wait to hear from you again. Bye! I will talk to you again soon!



Oh no! Sorry this is probably very late, but I'm sorry your computer stopped working. It's good how you were able to get a new power cord for it.

I am still doing "okay" socially. I never see people outside of school except on my birthday and Halloween, and both of those are coming up. I am excited since it is fun seeing my friends on my birthday sometimes. We are going to a restaurant and it will be very fun! I wish I could invite my teachers, but that might be a little creepy.

I had my audition! It went well I think, except for one thing. I had practiced one part of the song that was harder for hours, but she said I didn't even have to play it! I spent so much time on that one part because it was hard, and what do you know? I don't even have to play it. My orchestra teacher is trying to make the students that are quitting join this year, and she actually got some of them to join again, which is good! I wish all schools could have music classes. I am very lucky since my school provides them for us instead of us needing to get private lessons.

I do have quite a fair amount of homework, but it isn't too bad. Science is still horrible, but we had a substitute teacher today and it was so nice.

I don't have many conversations with people online except here on Wrongplanet either! You are one of my favorite people to talk to here though!

I have tapes of movies from when I was little too! I have a VHS, and I still watch them sometimes. It is fun to see myself as a baby and younger kid though. That is odd about the person you wrote to on YouTube! I wonder what happened to them! Maybe they were told to stop making content. It is pretty ironic how the last email she sent said that she would email you more often!

Thank you! I am slowly adjusting to the lunch room, but it is still not fun at all for me. I don't eat much of my lunch at all, and I don't even eat breakfast. I always find it so much easier to eat at home. Eating with other people is very stressful. I am sorry you had to suffer through all the sports games and pep rallies! That must have not been fun at all. I have to suffer through them too.

That's really cool how your teacher remembered the jokes you made! I really am going to miss my favorite teachers when I leave middle school.

I am very self-conscious about being barefoot as well! I have always had that problem. The worst thing ever was when we had to let a teacher wash our feet in preschool (I went to a Christian preschool, and it was supposed to be as if Jesus was washing the disciples feet or something like that). It is going to be horrible when I have to take swimming in high school!

I always lose certain board games too! Physical education is okay. I have another "aspie" friend that is not very good at sports either, so we normally just do the activities together. The only time we can't do that is when we have to play a game all together as a class. I am worried about my grade in gym class because he said if we don't participate, we will lose points. I try to participate, but I can never catch the ball, so I just kind of run back and forth across the field/gym.

I don't know why my memory is affected by stress either! I am still doing okay in school, but I am just not as mentally "sharp" as I used to be. I hope The Masqueraders are still around too! AGT ended, so I do not know if they have a show or something like that.

I was a good reader when I was younger too! I am okay now. I miss my old children's books too. I used to sit for hours and read them all! One time I even got punished by having all my books taken away!

Thank you! I hope college will not be that bad either!

That is cool! I have never been to a wedding before, so I do not know what it will be like.

Thank you! My OCD was better for a while, but as I predicted, that didn't last for long. I went through a huge amount of stress recently, but I am okay now. I hope it stays that way!

The only parties I like are birthday parties too! I normally only invite a few people to my party, but I don't usually have my party on my birthday. This year, I am having my party on a Friday and my birthday is a Monday. I always enjoy my birthday.

Thank you! I find out if I am in my favorite teacher's club next week! I can't wait. I am not that good at German, but I would say I am about average. The only thing I hate is when she randomly asks us things in German and we have to respond correctly in front of the whole class! Learning languages is pretty fun though!

I don't really have many close friends either. It really just depends on how people define "friend." I like to think I have around four friends including my teacher, but some people wouldn't count my friends as "friends" so I am not sure. My orchestra group is getting better! I hope I got in! I will find out next week if I am in.

Thank you! Bye! I will talk to you soon!





It is great to hear from you again. I was thinking about you because it has been a while since we talked, and I was hoping that you were doing okay. My computer is working well now, and I have returned to Wrong Planet. I check it every day.



I am glad that you are still doing "okay" socially. I am also the same way. I never see any one outside of work, or talk to them either. I do not have very many friends, but I trying to meet new people who have Asperger's syndrome. What I am doing is getting together for get-togethers on a web site called meetup.com. It is a service where you sign up for meetups based on activities that you enjoy, and you meet with other people in your community who have the same interests. I attend meetups for adults with Asperger's syndrome. The group I am in is just a small group, but I still like it. We met last Saturday at a cafe & just talked about what we have been up to recently, and the leader of the group told us about his road trip to Montana, and his trip to Glacier National Park. Their next meetup is in 3 weeks, and they have planned to go bowling. I am not very good at bowling, but it will still be nice to go.



I am excited that your birthday is coming up soon! Do you have any plans with your friends on your birthday? Do you know which restaurant you are going to or what you will eat yet? I also like Halloween too. When I was a kid, my parents used to take me & my two brothers trick-or-treating around my old neighbourhood. All of the houses would be decorated for Halloween, and we would always come home with a big bag full of candy. Most of the candy would be gone in just a few days. We would also buy pumpkins & carve them in to jack-o-lanterns. I wish I could still do those things today; they were a lot of fun. This year, I am just going to stay home & watch The Shining, which is an old horror movie from 1980, starring Jack Nicholson & Shelley Duvall, and directed by the late Stanley Kubrick.



I also wish I could have invited my teachers places when I went to school, but you are right, it would have been creepy! My parents & I actually did invite one of my old school bus drivers out for pizza back when I was 12 years old, and we had a good time.



I am glad that your audition went well, but I am sorry that you rehearsed the one part of the song that you did not have to play. That must have been frustrating. That is great that your orchestra teacher gotthe students that are quitting join the class this year. I also wish all schools could have music lessons, and I am glad that your school offers them. My schools never had music classes, and I just took private lessons at a music place near me. I tried to learn how to play the alto saxophone & later the violin, but I was never any good at either instrument, which frustrated me, so I quit taking the lessons. I still have my old violin out in my storage locker, but I never play it.



I am sorry that you have so much homework, but it is not too bad. I am also sorry that science is still horrible, and I hope it gets better soon.



It is hard for me to have conversations with people online, but I like to have conversations with the members of Wrong Planet. You are also one of my favourite people to talk to on here too! I always have a good time writing to you & sharing my experiences with you!



I still have a VHS VCR too, and I like to watch the old tapes of the home movies that my Dad made back when I was a baby & younger kid. They are fun to watch, but I sometimes get sad watching them because my mother is in them, and I really miss her. My Dad used to make home movies of Christmas & the birthdays of me & my brother. He made them on a large Panasonic Omni Movie camcorder that he would mount on his shoulder & look thru a view finder to make them.



That was very odd about the poet & writer that I used to write to on You Tube. I never knew why she stopped communicating with me, or why her You Tube videos were taken down. After she sent me that final E mail where she said she would E mail me more often, I tried contacting her three times. The first time was when I E mailed her to wish her a happy birthday & also a happy Thanksgiving, since her birthday was in November, and she never wrote back to me. The second time was two months later to tell her that one of my friends had died; I called her on the telephone & told her the bad news, but she did not answer, and I left her a message, but she never called me back or E mailed me. The third & final time I tried contacting her was on her birthday. The same thing happened again; I called her on the telephone, and she did not answer my call, so I left her a message; I wished her a happy birthday & said that I missed chatting with her, and that I wanted to talk to her again. She never called me back, and I finally just gave up on her. Clearly, she was not a very loyal person, or a woman of her word; she did not do things she said she would do. I am very loyal, and I never abandon any one. I also always do what I say I will do.



You are welcome! I am glad that the lunch room is getting better for you, but I am sorry that is still not fun. When I went to school, I would not eat very much of my lunch either, and most of the time, I never even brought a lunch. I would just eat a big breakfast & then eat later when I got home from school. It has also always been so much easier for me to eat at home, and I still get very stressed out eating with other people. Every day, I eat a big breakfast, and when I take my lunch break at work, I either go to a table outside to eat my lunch, or I eat my lunch in my car. I always bring the same food in my lunch every time I go to work at the library. I am sorry that you have to suffer thru the sports games & pep rallies too!



Yes, I still like joking with my old teacher, and I really missed them when I graduated from high school. Earlier today, while I was working at the library, I checked out a DVD that we used to talk about. It is about Koko, a famous gorilla that communicates with sign language. I am going to E mail him & tell him about it. I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla!



I am also very self-conscious about being barefoot too, and I have also always had that problem. I still do not let any one see my feet, and I always wear shoes & socks all the time. I am sorry about what happened to you with your teacher washing your feet at your Christian preschool. It sounds terrible. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming class in high school. I never had to take swimming, but I had to take a gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. and I later had to take a karate class in school. I had to be barefoot in those classes, and I hated them. I was very embarrassed & uneasy in those classes.



I am sorry that you always lose certain board games. I still like to play them, even when I lose them. I am glad that physical education is okay with your Aspie friend, and that you can do the activities together. I also hated playing games all together with my classmates too. I hope that you can get more points so your grade in gym class improves. I was also worried about my grade in gym class too. I also tried to participate, but I could never catch the ball either, and I just ran around the field too.



I hope your stress does not affect your memory for much longer, and that it gets better. I hope that you can be mentally "sharp" again. When did AGT end? Who won the grand prize?



I still like reading, and I used to read for hours & read all my books. I miss my children's books, but I shelve them at the library where I work. Sometimes, I will even put away a book that I used to have, and I still remember it! I am sorry that you got punished by having all your books taken away.



You are welcome! Good luck in college!



I hope you have fun at the wedding! You can tell me what it is like when you go to it!



You are welcome! I am sorry your OCD has gotten worse, and that you went thru stress recently. I am glad that you are better now, and I also hope it stays that way.



I do not really like parties either, and I also only like birthday parties too. I do not like having many people at my birthday party either. I hope you have a fun birthday! My birthday was also on a Monday this year too! I also enjoy my birthday too.



You are welcome. I hope you get to be in your favourite teacher's club! I am glad that you are doing okay in your German class. I am sorry that your teacher asks you things in German & makes you respond correctly. I have never learned another language before, but it sounds like fun!



I only have a few close "friends" too, but it depends on the definition of "friend". I am glad your orchestra group is getting better, and I hope you get it! Good luck getting in!



You are welcome! I am going to sleep now, and I will talk to you again soon!


Hi! I am sorry I have not replied in a while! I missed talking to you, but I could never find time to reply with all my homework! I don't have any homework this weekend, though, so I am able to reply now. I am glad your computer is working again.

I don't have very many friends either. It honestly depends on how "friend" and "acquaintance" are defined. I can't tell if some people are friends or acquaintances. I still like talking to people at school sometimes, so I guess it doesn't matter if they are "friends" or not. That sounds like a cool website! I am glad you still like the group you are in, even if it is small. I enjoy small groups much more than large groups anyway. The meeting you had at the cafe sounds like it would be fun! It is cool how the leader got to take a trip to Montana! I am not very good at bowling either! One time I went to a bowling alley with my dad, and I threw the bowling ball down another person's lane. That was pretty embarrassing, but it was still funny. I hope you have a nice time at your next meetup.

Thank you! I am excited as well. I am going to go see a movie with my mom and my friends, and we are going to Red Robin (a hamburger restaurant). It will hopefully be fun! I like Halloween too. My dad always takes me, my friend I sit with on the bus, and my little sister around the neighborhood for Halloween. There are some really cool decorations on some of the houses. I like getting candy too. We also buy pumpkins and carve them into jack-o-lanterns. I carved a squid face into my pumpkin last year! That sounds like a fun way to spend Halloween- I like watching old horror movies too.

It would be kind of weird to invite my teachers to my birthday! I agree! That is cool how you had pizza with your old bus driver though. I wish I could do that!

Thank you! It was frustrating, but I do not mind as much anymore. I am also glad she was able to get some of the students who were going to quit to join again. I tried to learn to play the clarinet before, but I was never good at it either. I am sorry you were frustrated by learning those instruments! They are really hard to play.

Thank you! I hope science gets better soon too.

I always have a great time talking here as well! I wish I could post more often, but I still have so much homework during the week!

I am so sorry that sometimes you get sad watching the movies your dad made. It must be really hard to lose somebody you love, and I am sorry you had to go through that. I am glad you still enjoy watching them sometimes though. My dad always used to make movies of me on my birthday too. My dad used a video camera too! I sometimes wish he would still make them, but now my mom just takes pictures of me on my birthday.

That is weird about the poet and writer you used to talk to. I am sorry she never wrote or called back! I am a loyal person too, and my friends from elementary school have abandoned me before, and I never knew why. I really miss them too. Clearly they weren't very loyal either.

I don't eat a lot of my lunch either! I don't eat breakfast, but I also eat a lot when I get home. It is always easier for me to eat at home as well. I wish I could eat the same food every day too, but my mom says it isn't healthy, since I don't eat a lot of healthy food for lunch. I used to always get the same sandwich from the cafeteria at my school, but lately I have been afraid of choking (it is a pretty big sandwich) so I get something else. It is just too stressful to eat around other people. I am sorry you find it stressful too!

That is cool how you checked out a DVD about something you used to talk about! I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla too.

I am sorry you had to take gymnastics at the Y.M.C.A and a karate class in school! That must have not been very fun, since you were embarrassed and uneasy. I hate being barefoot too.

I still like to play the board games I lose at too! Thank you! I am glad my friend is in my class, and that we can just play the sports by ourselves sometimes. It is hard to participate when I am terrible at sports! I am sorry it was hard for you too. At least I get exercise from running back and forth across the field.

Thank you! I can still remember most things, but I am not as good as I used to be. AGT ended on September 20th, and Darci Lynne Farmer (a singing ventriloquist) won the 1 million dollars! She is an amazing ventriloquist!

That is cool how you still put away children's books at the library where you work! That is okay, it was a while ago when all my books were taken away, and I now have them back.

Thank you! I will tell you all about the wedding when I go to it!

Thank you! I am glad my stress is not as bad anymore either.

Thank you! I hope I have a good time on my birthday. I am glad you enjoy your birthday too.

Thank you! I will find out on Tuesday if I am in his club, I think. Thank you! I am learning a lot of German, and it is fun to say things in German too!

I don't know how to define "friend" either! I only have a few close friends like you. Thank you! I will find out Thursday if I get into my orchestra group.

Bye! I hope you had a nice day, and I will talk to you again soon too!





Hi! I just got your message. Right now, I am eating my dinner while I am typing. Every night, I always cook my own dinner at my home. I like it a lot better than eating out & having other people around.



I was waiting for your reply, but I am glad to hear from you again, and I am also glad that you are doing well. I am sorry that you have so much homework, but I am glad you have no homework this weekend. I would sometimes have to do homework on weekends too, and I hated it. My computer works well now, and I am glad my Dad could help me with getting it working again.



I also get confused on how people define "friends" and "acquaintances," and I can not really tell the difference either. Maybe it does not really matter if you still like talking with them or spending time with them. I highly recommend meetup.com if you ever have the time, and you may find a group close to you that you like going to. I have only found one group for adults with Asperger's syndrome that I like in San Diego, but I have also found a few new groups that I am going to try out when they have their first meetup. Last year, I was in another meetup group that I did not like at all, so I quit going to that group. I also like going to small groups better than large groups too. My meetup at the cafe was fun, and we had a good time talking. The leader had an interesting story about his road trip to Montana. That was funny when your Dad took you bowling! It sounds embarrassing! I hope my bowling meetup is fun. My Dad offered to take me to the meetup because it is in a city that is about an hour's drive away from where I live, and I do not know how to get there.



You are welcome! Do you know what movie you are going to see with your Mom & your friends yet? I have never been to Red Robin before; they must not have them in San Diego. I hope you have fun! I also hope you, your Dad, your friend, and your sister have fun going out on Halloween! That is cool that you made a squid face jack-o-lantern in to your pumpkin last year! The complex where I live does not decorate or have any kids around, so there is not much for me to do at my place. My mother lived in a neighbourhood with a lot of kids, and the houses all had cool decorations. We used to just stay home & hand out candy. Back on Halloween of 2009, we were watching television, and every time we sat back down after some kids left our house, the door bell would ring again, and we would have to give out more candy! We actually ran out of candy that year, so we turned off all of the lights & hid upstairs in our bedrooms so it would look like we were not home from the outside!



I hope you have a fun time on your birthday, even if you can not invite your teachers! I was in the sixth grade when I went to the Pizza Hut with my school bus driver, back in 1997. I was 12 years old. My bus driver's name was Joe; I still remember his name.



You are welcome! I am glad that your music class is going better & that your teacher got the students to come back. I am sorry that you were not good at playing the clarinet. I always had trouble learning music & instruments too.



You are welcome! Good luck with your science class.



I like talking with you on here too! I understand that you have a lot of homework, but I will always be here. I will just wait to hear from you.



Thank you! I have mixed feelings whenever I watch the old home movies that my Dad made on his camera when I was a kid. I like to remember the good times of my childhood, but seeing my mother again makes me sad because she is gone. I think of her every day. She died four years ago, and she was 60 years old. She had HIV. She was a nurse, and my family thinks that she got the virus from being exposed to patients that she cared for. I wish I could see her again, talk to her again, and spend time with her & do fun things again. I still like watching the old movies again though. Do you ever watch your old movies that your Dad made? Do you also like taking pictures with your Mom?



I do not know why that writer abandoned me. As far as I know, she has not written any new books since I last heard from her. She also has no You Tube videos any more. I am sorry that your friends from elementary school abandoned you. It seems like no one has any loyalty any more, except for people like you & me.



I like to eat breakfast, but whenever I go to work, I always have the same lunch every day, and it is always a small lunch. I prefer to eat alone, and I like eating at home better than restaurants or with other people around. I also prefer to eat my own food that I buy at the grocery store or cook at home instead of someone else's food. I have been making an effort to eat healthier too. I am sorry that you are afraid of choking on your sandwich. The public elementary school I attended had a cafeteria, but I did not like the food they served, so I always brought my own lunch.



I am going to watch the DVD about Koko the gorilla tomorrow or some time within the next few days. I will ask my old teacher if he remembers Koko the gorilla. We first heard about Koko the gorilla in a story which was in one of my school work books.



I never liked the gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. or the karate class at all. I hated being barefoot & having people around me seeing my feet.



I am glad you still like the board games! They are fun to play, even if you lose them! It is great that your friend is in your class & you can both play the sports together. I was terrible at sports, but I still liked at least getting exercise from running around the field.



You are welcome! I hope your memory gets better. That's cool about the show & how she won 1 million dollars!



I like putting children's books away at the library. They are fun to read. I am glad you got your books back after they were taken from you.



You are welcome! I will wait to here about the wedding!



You are welcome! Stress is no fun at all, and I am glad it is better for you.



You are welcome! You can tell me about your birthday! I like my birthdays too!



You are welcome! I hope you get in his club. You are welcome! I am glad you like speaking German!



It can be confusing trying to determine who are "friends." I am glad that I have at lease a few close friends. You are welcome! I hope you get in to your orchestra group.



Bye! I hope you had a good weekend too. Right now, I am watching reruns of a television show that I used to watch with my mother called Forensic Files. I am going to watch the show, and then wash my dishes, and go to sleep. I have to go to work at the library early tomorrow morning. Talk to you again soon!


Hi! I hope you had a nice dinner yesterday. I like eating at my own home too!

I will hopefully be able to post a lot more in this forum now. My homework load isn't as bad as it was last week so far. I used to have to write a whole journal entry about something I did over the weekend in elementary school. I hated it too! I would be having fun playing or doing something fun, but then I would have to write an essay about it and it ruined everything. Thankfully, I do not have to do that anymore. I am glad your computer is working again too, and that your dad was able to fix it.

I can never tell the difference between "friends" and "acquaintances" either. I agree, as long as I enjoy spending time with them it really does not matter. I almost have my own version of an Asperger's Syndrome meetup group at my school since there are so many autistic people there! I think it would be really fun to be able to meetup with people who have similar interests. I am sorry you did not like the group you went to last year, but I am glad you are having a good time in meetup groups now. I prefer to talk to people one-on-one, as I do not talk in large groups of people, but small groups are definitely better. I am glad you had a nice time at the cafe meetup! It was pretty embarrassing when I threw it down the other person's lane! I wasn't even standing in their lane- I was standing in my lane, but somehow my hands didn't do what my brain told them to do :) ! I hope your bowling meetup is fun too. It sounds like it will be pretty far away, but I am glad your Dad offered to drive you there!

I think we are going to see a movie based on a historical event. I forget what it was called, but I will look it up later. Red Robin is a pretty nice restaurant! I went there last year for my party as well. Thank you! I hope I have fun on my birthday and Halloween too! Thanks! I am sorry the place where you live doesn't have any kids around or decorations. I and out candy sometimes when I am done trick-or-treating, like you and your mother did! That always happens to me too! As soon as we sit down, our bell rings again! That is funny how you had to hide so it would not look like you were there! I have always been told that if somebody doesn't have their porch or garage light on, then I shouldn't knock on their door. Unfortunately, not everyone has a garage or porch light, so we never know if we are allowed to trick-or-treat there!

Thank you! It is cool how you remember all the details from your trip to the pizza place with your bus driver! My bus driver changes every day this year, and the bus is sometimes very late. We usually have to stand outside my school waiting for at least 30 minutes! I do not mind though, since my teachers sometimes stand out there with us and I can talk to them.

Thank you! I have my first music lesson tomorrow, and I have to miss German class. That is okay, it was just not the right instrument for me. Learning instruments is very hard!

Thank you! I always like talking on here as well. Hopefully you won't have to wait long :D ! I am going to try and post more often.

You're welcome! I am very sorry your mother passed away from HIV. I wish there were a cure for it. Wow. That is a very noble job, and I am so sorry that she had to get a virus from dealing with patients. She must have been pretty amazing. I wish you could see her again too. I am glad you still like watching the old movies, even if they cause mixed feelings for you. I also watch old movies my Dad made! My favorite ones to watch are the ones filmed on our birthday or Christmas, because we were all so happy to open gifts and spend time with each other. I like taking pictures with my mom, too. I am very sorry for your loss!

It does seem like people aren't very loyal to one another any more, except for you and me. I wish people were more loyal. I was so confused when my friends stopped playing with me on the playground and talking to me.

I am also trying to eat healthier. Since I do not eat a lot, it does not really matter, but I still want to eat healthier. What do you have for lunch? My cafeteria serves pretty good food. I am sorry your cafeteria did not serve anything you liked. I usually buy my lunch once a week, and then bring my own the rest of the time. One time during lunch two years ago, I went with my friend to a detention. It was her detention, but I still went with her because there was no one at my table and I thought detention would be fun. The teacher made us write lines, but we got to eat our lunch in a silent, empty room. That was nice!

Wow! I hope you have fun watching the DVD on Koko the gorilla! I used to have school work books for all of my classes too, but now everything is mainly electronic. I don't even have physical textbooks for some subjects! I have to go online.

I am sorry you never like gymnastics or karate.

Board games are always fun to play, even if I do lose them! The only annoying part is with certain board games where I need to roll a specific number on the dice to move, and I can never roll that number! They are still fun, though. Today gym class was not as fun, since it was very hot outside and I was open to catch the football the whole class, but nobody passed it to me. I also did not get to play with my friend. Hopefully next gym class will be better!

Thank you! It is cool how she won 1 million dollars!

I might want to work at a library one day. It seems fun! Thank you, I am glad I got my books back too.

Thank you! I will tell you about my birthday next week! My family and I are going to a Mexican restaurant on my birthday since my party is on Friday, and I am going to get a cheese quesadilla! I really like them, and I always get one whenever we go to that restaurant.

It can be confusing to determine who are "friends!" I am glad I have a few close friends as well. Thank you! I think I will find out which club(s) I am in tomorrow!

Bye! Thank you; I had an okay weekend. I used to watch that show too! I hope you had a nice day working in the library! I will talk to you soon!

Oh yeah, when I say I'm doing "great socially", it means I am doing well by my standards (which aren't very high)! :D

My practicing for the smaller orchestra group I mentioned isn't going so well! Violin is really hard! A lot of people in my grade are quitting orchestra this year.

I hope you are doing okay! I haven't heard from you in a while!





Hi, I am back. Sorry I have been away, but last week, my computer stopped working. I could not check my E mail or Wrong Planet, or do anything else on my computer either. I took it to my Dad's house, and he could not get it to work either. It turned out that there was a problem with the power supply, so we had to buy a new electrical cord for it. I just got my computer back yesterday. I just got your message, and I am catching up on my E mails. I missed chatting with you!



I am glad to hear that you are doing great socially, and that you have some friends that you spend time with. I think I am doing okay by my standards as well, which is better than nothing.



I am sorry that your orchestra group is not going so well. The schools I attended never had any orchestra or music classes, so I am jealous that you have them! I tried to learn how to play the violin back when I was 17 & 18 years old, and it was really hard for me too. I am sorry that the students in your grade are quitting the orchestra this year; that is no fun without any one participating in it any more.



I hope everything else is going better for you in school. Do you like any of your other classes better? I hope you do not have too much homework this year. I had a lot of homework when I was 13 years old, and I hated it.



I also think that Wrong Planet should have an auto-save option for posting messages. I was mad when my post was lost when I tried to submit it.



You are welcome! I like talking with you too. I do not have many conversations with people online, but I like talking with you!



Minecraft sounds like fun! Since I have not had a working computer for a week, I have not tried it yet. I still do not have a camera either, and I just watch You Tube videos, and not make them or comment on them. The only camera I have every owned was my Dad's old, large movie camera that he used to make home movies on when I was a kid. He used to make movies of Christmas & birthdays of me & my brothers. They were made on to video tapes, and you used to play them on your television. I still have the tapes of the movies, and I sometimes like to watch them again today. The only person I have ever contacted on You Tube was a writer who lived in Chicago. I bought her books, and they had her E mail address in them, so I sent her an E mail saying I liked her book, and then we became pen pals. We kept in contact for 3 years, and then she mysteriously abandoned me, and I never found out why. I tried E mailing & calling her on the telephone, but she quit responding. I never heard another word from her again, and all of her You Tube videos are long gone. Ironically, the last E mail I ever got from her concluded with her saying "I promise I am going to E mail you more often." She has probably forgotten all about me by now!



That experience at the library was interesting, and I do not know whatever happened to the employee who got in trouble. I am sorry about what happened with you & your vice principal. Lunch rooms are no fun at all. I am also sorry that you had another fire drill.



Most of the schools I attended were small, but the lunch rooms had most of the students cramped in them too. I always hated lunch time too. Most of the time, I would not even bring a lunch, and I would just eat breakfast, and then eat again after I got home. I am sorry that your friend is not in any of your classes, but you can still have lunch together. I never got to go home earlier either, and I had to suffer thru the stupid pep rallies & sports games.



I am glad you are still having fun joking with your teachers! I miss a lot of jokes too, but I always understood my teacher's jokes. During my last E mail with my old teacher, I told him about some of our old jokes from high school, and he still remembered them! He likes hearing from me too.



I never use public restrooms! I only use my own restroom, or the restroom at my Dad's house. I hate being barefoot because I am always afraid that I will step on some sharp object & hurt myself. I am also very self-conscious & I do not want any one to see my feet. I never use either of the swimming pools I have access to. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming in high school physical education. It was hard enough for me to swim with my parents & brothers around, so I can not imagine what it would be like with your teachers & classmates around.



I like playing table top games & board games, but there are some of them that I am not very good at, and I always lose them! I know that physical education class is no fun, but I hope that your physical education class is better with your nice teacher. That is a funny joke about the gorillas!



I do not know why my memory is affected by stress. I am sorry about your long-term memory & storing good memories due to stress. I hope The Masqueraders are still around today because they sound really good!



You are welcome! I was always good at reading. When I was in Kindergarten, I was the best reader in the whole class! In my old home movies that I mentioned, I got some children's books for Christmas, and I spent the whole time just reading them. I wish I still had those books.



You are welcome! Good luck on your future goals of adopting a child & going to college! College will be scary, but hopefully it will not be too bad. One of the reasons I never went to college is because it is scary.



You are welcome! Have fun playing with your new cousin during the wedding! I have only been to 2 weddings in my life. The first wedding was my aunt's wedding in 1990, when I was 5 years old. I don't really remember it very well, but we still have old pictures & the old video tape of the wedding The second wedding was my Dad's second wedding in 2011, when I was 26 years old. I remember it very well.



You are welcome! I am glad that your OCD is getting better!



You are welcome! The only parties I ever really liked were my birthday parties when I was a kid, but I still like them today because I am usually just with my Dad, and we get to have some quality time just by ourselves. I am glad you had fun at your friend's holiday party. I like to bake cookies & play board games too!



I am glad you like school this year, and that you get to talk to your favourite teacher every single day! I hope you can join his club this year. I also used to walk by my favourite teacher's class every day & I really missed being in it too, but I also used to say to them every day too. That is great that your old teachers & your math teacher are being nice to you. I am sorry about your mean homeroom teacher; I have had some mean teachers too. I am glad your math is improving; math was always difficult for me. Are you good at speaking German? I never took any language classes, but they sound like fun, except when you have to speak to the class. I never had any deaf teachers, but I am glad your physical education teacher is fun & makes jokes & says hi to you.



I am glad you are doing well socially! I also used to copy my teachers' body language & things they said too. I also had some classmates that I sometimes considered "acquaintances" but not really close friends. I am glad that you can have lunch & ride the bus with your friends! I also considered my teacher my best friend too. I hope your elite orchestra group gets better; I am sorry it is not working out.



That is okay if it is weird or disorganised; I do not mind! Get some rest after the long week, and I will wait to hear from you again. Bye! I will talk to you again soon!



Oh no! Sorry this is probably very late, but I'm sorry your computer stopped working. It's good how you were able to get a new power cord for it.

I am still doing "okay" socially. I never see people outside of school except on my birthday and Halloween, and both of those are coming up. I am excited since it is fun seeing my friends on my birthday sometimes. We are going to a restaurant and it will be very fun! I wish I could invite my teachers, but that might be a little creepy.

I had my audition! It went well I think, except for one thing. I had practiced one part of the song that was harder for hours, but she said I didn't even have to play it! I spent so much time on that one part because it was hard, and what do you know? I don't even have to play it. My orchestra teacher is trying to make the students that are quitting join this year, and she actually got some of them to join again, which is good! I wish all schools could have music classes. I am very lucky since my school provides them for us instead of us needing to get private lessons.

I do have quite a fair amount of homework, but it isn't too bad. Science is still horrible, but we had a substitute teacher today and it was so nice.

I don't have many conversations with people online except here on Wrongplanet either! You are one of my favorite people to talk to here though!

I have tapes of movies from when I was little too! I have a VHS, and I still watch them sometimes. It is fun to see myself as a baby and younger kid though. That is odd about the person you wrote to on YouTube! I wonder what happened to them! Maybe they were told to stop making content. It is pretty ironic how the last email she sent said that she would email you more often!

Thank you! I am slowly adjusting to the lunch room, but it is still not fun at all for me. I don't eat much of my lunch at all, and I don't even eat breakfast. I always find it so much easier to eat at home. Eating with other people is very stressful. I am sorry you had to suffer through all the sports games and pep rallies! That must have not been fun at all. I have to suffer through them too.

That's really cool how your teacher remembered the jokes you made! I really am going to miss my favorite teachers when I leave middle school.

I am very self-conscious about being barefoot as well! I have always had that problem. The worst thing ever was when we had to let a teacher wash our feet in preschool (I went to a Christian preschool, and it was supposed to be as if Jesus was washing the disciples feet or something like that). It is going to be horrible when I have to take swimming in high school!

I always lose certain board games too! Physical education is okay. I have another "aspie" friend that is not very good at sports either, so we normally just do the activities together. The only time we can't do that is when we have to play a game all together as a class. I am worried about my grade in gym class because he said if we don't participate, we will lose points. I try to participate, but I can never catch the ball, so I just kind of run back and forth across the field/gym.

I don't know why my memory is affected by stress either! I am still doing okay in school, but I am just not as mentally "sharp" as I used to be. I hope The Masqueraders are still around too! AGT ended, so I do not know if they have a show or something like that.

I was a good reader when I was younger too! I am okay now. I miss my old children's books too. I used to sit for hours and read them all! One time I even got punished by having all my books taken away!

Thank you! I hope college will not be that bad either!

That is cool! I have never been to a wedding before, so I do not know what it will be like.

Thank you! My OCD was better for a while, but as I predicted, that didn't last for long. I went through a huge amount of stress recently, but I am okay now. I hope it stays that way!

The only parties I like are birthday parties too! I normally only invite a few people to my party, but I don't usually have my party on my birthday. This year, I am having my party on a Friday and my birthday is a Monday. I always enjoy my birthday.

Thank you! I find out if I am in my favorite teacher's club next week! I can't wait. I am not that good at German, but I would say I am about average. The only thing I hate is when she randomly asks us things in German and we have to respond correctly in front of the whole class! Learning languages is pretty fun though!

I don't really have many close friends either. It really just depends on how people define "friend." I like to think I have around four friends including my teacher, but some people wouldn't count my friends as "friends" so I am not sure. My orchestra group is getting better! I hope I got in! I will find out next week if I am in.

Thank you! Bye! I will talk to you soon!





It is great to hear from you again. I was thinking about you because it has been a while since we talked, and I was hoping that you were doing okay. My computer is working well now, and I have returned to Wrong Planet. I check it every day.



I am glad that you are still doing "okay" socially. I am also the same way. I never see any one outside of work, or talk to them either. I do not have very many friends, but I trying to meet new people who have Asperger's syndrome. What I am doing is getting together for get-togethers on a web site called meetup.com. It is a service where you sign up for meetups based on activities that you enjoy, and you meet with other people in your community who have the same interests. I attend meetups for adults with Asperger's syndrome. The group I am in is just a small group, but I still like it. We met last Saturday at a cafe & just talked about what we have been up to recently, and the leader of the group told us about his road trip to Montana, and his trip to Glacier National Park. Their next meetup is in 3 weeks, and they have planned to go bowling. I am not very good at bowling, but it will still be nice to go.



I am excited that your birthday is coming up soon! Do you have any plans with your friends on your birthday? Do you know which restaurant you are going to or what you will eat yet? I also like Halloween too. When I was a kid, my parents used to take me & my two brothers trick-or-treating around my old neighbourhood. All of the houses would be decorated for Halloween, and we would always come home with a big bag full of candy. Most of the candy would be gone in just a few days. We would also buy pumpkins & carve them in to jack-o-lanterns. I wish I could still do those things today; they were a lot of fun. This year, I am just going to stay home & watch The Shining, which is an old horror movie from 1980, starring Jack Nicholson & Shelley Duvall, and directed by the late Stanley Kubrick.



I also wish I could have invited my teachers places when I went to school, but you are right, it would have been creepy! My parents & I actually did invite one of my old school bus drivers out for pizza back when I was 12 years old, and we had a good time.



I am glad that your audition went well, but I am sorry that you rehearsed the one part of the song that you did not have to play. That must have been frustrating. That is great that your orchestra teacher gotthe students that are quitting join the class this year. I also wish all schools could have music lessons, and I am glad that your school offers them. My schools never had music classes, and I just took private lessons at a music place near me. I tried to learn how to play the alto saxophone & later the violin, but I was never any good at either instrument, which frustrated me, so I quit taking the lessons. I still have my old violin out in my storage locker, but I never play it.



I am sorry that you have so much homework, but it is not too bad. I am also sorry that science is still horrible, and I hope it gets better soon.



It is hard for me to have conversations with people online, but I like to have conversations with the members of Wrong Planet. You are also one of my favourite people to talk to on here too! I always have a good time writing to you & sharing my experiences with you!



I still have a VHS VCR too, and I like to watch the old tapes of the home movies that my Dad made back when I was a baby & younger kid. They are fun to watch, but I sometimes get sad watching them because my mother is in them, and I really miss her. My Dad used to make home movies of Christmas & the birthdays of me & my brother. He made them on a large Panasonic Omni Movie camcorder that he would mount on his shoulder & look thru a view finder to make them.



That was very odd about the poet & writer that I used to write to on You Tube. I never knew why she stopped communicating with me, or why her You Tube videos were taken down. After she sent me that final E mail where she said she would E mail me more often, I tried contacting her three times. The first time was when I E mailed her to wish her a happy birthday & also a happy Thanksgiving, since her birthday was in November, and she never wrote back to me. The second time was two months later to tell her that one of my friends had died; I called her on the telephone & told her the bad news, but she did not answer, and I left her a message, but she never called me back or E mailed me. The third & final time I tried contacting her was on her birthday. The same thing happened again; I called her on the telephone, and she did not answer my call, so I left her a message; I wished her a happy birthday & said that I missed chatting with her, and that I wanted to talk to her again. She never called me back, and I finally just gave up on her. Clearly, she was not a very loyal person, or a woman of her word; she did not do things she said she would do. I am very loyal, and I never abandon any one. I also always do what I say I will do.



You are welcome! I am glad that the lunch room is getting better for you, but I am sorry that is still not fun. When I went to school, I would not eat very much of my lunch either, and most of the time, I never even brought a lunch. I would just eat a big breakfast & then eat later when I got home from school. It has also always been so much easier for me to eat at home, and I still get very stressed out eating with other people. Every day, I eat a big breakfast, and when I take my lunch break at work, I either go to a table outside to eat my lunch, or I eat my lunch in my car. I always bring the same food in my lunch every time I go to work at the library. I am sorry that you have to suffer thru the sports games & pep rallies too!



Yes, I still like joking with my old teacher, and I really missed them when I graduated from high school. Earlier today, while I was working at the library, I checked out a DVD that we used to talk about. It is about Koko, a famous gorilla that communicates with sign language. I am going to E mail him & tell him about it. I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla!



I am also very self-conscious about being barefoot too, and I have also always had that problem. I still do not let any one see my feet, and I always wear shoes & socks all the time. I am sorry about what happened to you with your teacher washing your feet at your Christian preschool. It sounds terrible. I am sorry that you will have to take swimming class in high school. I never had to take swimming, but I had to take a gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. and I later had to take a karate class in school. I had to be barefoot in those classes, and I hated them. I was very embarrassed & uneasy in those classes.



I am sorry that you always lose certain board games. I still like to play them, even when I lose them. I am glad that physical education is okay with your Aspie friend, and that you can do the activities together. I also hated playing games all together with my classmates too. I hope that you can get more points so your grade in gym class improves. I was also worried about my grade in gym class too. I also tried to participate, but I could never catch the ball either, and I just ran around the field too.



I hope your stress does not affect your memory for much longer, and that it gets better. I hope that you can be mentally "sharp" again. When did AGT end? Who won the grand prize?



I still like reading, and I used to read for hours & read all my books. I miss my children's books, but I shelve them at the library where I work. Sometimes, I will even put away a book that I used to have, and I still remember it! I am sorry that you got punished by having all your books taken away.



You are welcome! Good luck in college!



I hope you have fun at the wedding! You can tell me what it is like when you go to it!



You are welcome! I am sorry your OCD has gotten worse, and that you went thru stress recently. I am glad that you are better now, and I also hope it stays that way.



I do not really like parties either, and I also only like birthday parties too. I do not like having many people at my birthday party either. I hope you have a fun birthday! My birthday was also on a Monday this year too! I also enjoy my birthday too.



You are welcome. I hope you get to be in your favourite teacher's club! I am glad that you are doing okay in your German class. I am sorry that your teacher asks you things in German & makes you respond correctly. I have never learned another language before, but it sounds like fun!



I only have a few close "friends" too, but it depends on the definition of "friend". I am glad your orchestra group is getting better, and I hope you get it! Good luck getting in!



You are welcome! I am going to sleep now, and I will talk to you again soon!


Hi! I am sorry I have not replied in a while! I missed talking to you, but I could never find time to reply with all my homework! I don't have any homework this weekend, though, so I am able to reply now. I am glad your computer is working again.

I don't have very many friends either. It honestly depends on how "friend" and "acquaintance" are defined. I can't tell if some people are friends or acquaintances. I still like talking to people at school sometimes, so I guess it doesn't matter if they are "friends" or not. That sounds like a cool website! I am glad you still like the group you are in, even if it is small. I enjoy small groups much more than large groups anyway. The meeting you had at the cafe sounds like it would be fun! It is cool how the leader got to take a trip to Montana! I am not very good at bowling either! One time I went to a bowling alley with my dad, and I threw the bowling ball down another person's lane. That was pretty embarrassing, but it was still funny. I hope you have a nice time at your next meetup.

Thank you! I am excited as well. I am going to go see a movie with my mom and my friends, and we are going to Red Robin (a hamburger restaurant). It will hopefully be fun! I like Halloween too. My dad always takes me, my friend I sit with on the bus, and my little sister around the neighborhood for Halloween. There are some really cool decorations on some of the houses. I like getting candy too. We also buy pumpkins and carve them into jack-o-lanterns. I carved a squid face into my pumpkin last year! That sounds like a fun way to spend Halloween- I like watching old horror movies too.

It would be kind of weird to invite my teachers to my birthday! I agree! That is cool how you had pizza with your old bus driver though. I wish I could do that!

Thank you! It was frustrating, but I do not mind as much anymore. I am also glad she was able to get some of the students who were going to quit to join again. I tried to learn to play the clarinet before, but I was never good at it either. I am sorry you were frustrated by learning those instruments! They are really hard to play.

Thank you! I hope science gets better soon too.

I always have a great time talking here as well! I wish I could post more often, but I still have so much homework during the week!

I am so sorry that sometimes you get sad watching the movies your dad made. It must be really hard to lose somebody you love, and I am sorry you had to go through that. I am glad you still enjoy watching them sometimes though. My dad always used to make movies of me on my birthday too. My dad used a video camera too! I sometimes wish he would still make them, but now my mom just takes pictures of me on my birthday.

That is weird about the poet and writer you used to talk to. I am sorry she never wrote or called back! I am a loyal person too, and my friends from elementary school have abandoned me before, and I never knew why. I really miss them too. Clearly they weren't very loyal either.

I don't eat a lot of my lunch either! I don't eat breakfast, but I also eat a lot when I get home. It is always easier for me to eat at home as well. I wish I could eat the same food every day too, but my mom says it isn't healthy, since I don't eat a lot of healthy food for lunch. I used to always get the same sandwich from the cafeteria at my school, but lately I have been afraid of choking (it is a pretty big sandwich) so I get something else. It is just too stressful to eat around other people. I am sorry you find it stressful too!

That is cool how you checked out a DVD about something you used to talk about! I hope he still remembers Koko the gorilla too.

I am sorry you had to take gymnastics at the Y.M.C.A and a karate class in school! That must have not been very fun, since you were embarrassed and uneasy. I hate being barefoot too.

I still like to play the board games I lose at too! Thank you! I am glad my friend is in my class, and that we can just play the sports by ourselves sometimes. It is hard to participate when I am terrible at sports! I am sorry it was hard for you too. At least I get exercise from running back and forth across the field.

Thank you! I can still remember most things, but I am not as good as I used to be. AGT ended on September 20th, and Darci Lynne Farmer (a singing ventriloquist) won the 1 million dollars! She is an amazing ventriloquist!

That is cool how you still put away children's books at the library where you work! That is okay, it was a while ago when all my books were taken away, and I now have them back.

Thank you! I will tell you all about the wedding when I go to it!

Thank you! I am glad my stress is not as bad anymore either.

Thank you! I hope I have a good time on my birthday. I am glad you enjoy your birthday too.

Thank you! I will find out on Tuesday if I am in his club, I think. Thank you! I am learning a lot of German, and it is fun to say things in German too!

I don't know how to define "friend" either! I only have a few close friends like you. Thank you! I will find out Thursday if I get into my orchestra group.

Bye! I hope you had a nice day, and I will talk to you again soon too!





Hi! I just got your message. Right now, I am eating my dinner while I am typing. Every night, I always cook my own dinner at my home. I like it a lot better than eating out & having other people around.



I was waiting for your reply, but I am glad to hear from you again, and I am also glad that you are doing well. I am sorry that you have so much homework, but I am glad you have no homework this weekend. I would sometimes have to do homework on weekends too, and I hated it. My computer works well now, and I am glad my Dad could help me with getting it working again.



I also get confused on how people define "friends" and "acquaintances," and I can not really tell the difference either. Maybe it does not really matter if you still like talking with them or spending time with them. I highly recommend meetup.com if you ever have the time, and you may find a group close to you that you like going to. I have only found one group for adults with Asperger's syndrome that I like in San Diego, but I have also found a few new groups that I am going to try out when they have their first meetup. Last year, I was in another meetup group that I did not like at all, so I quit going to that group. I also like going to small groups better than large groups too. My meetup at the cafe was fun, and we had a good time talking. The leader had an interesting story about his road trip to Montana. That was funny when your Dad took you bowling! It sounds embarrassing! I hope my bowling meetup is fun. My Dad offered to take me to the meetup because it is in a city that is about an hour's drive away from where I live, and I do not know how to get there.



You are welcome! Do you know what movie you are going to see with your Mom & your friends yet? I have never been to Red Robin before; they must not have them in San Diego. I hope you have fun! I also hope you, your Dad, your friend, and your sister have fun going out on Halloween! That is cool that you made a squid face jack-o-lantern in to your pumpkin last year! The complex where I live does not decorate or have any kids around, so there is not much for me to do at my place. My mother lived in a neighbourhood with a lot of kids, and the houses all had cool decorations. We used to just stay home & hand out candy. Back on Halloween of 2009, we were watching television, and every time we sat back down after some kids left our house, the door bell would ring again, and we would have to give out more candy! We actually ran out of candy that year, so we turned off all of the lights & hid upstairs in our bedrooms so it would look like we were not home from the outside!



I hope you have a fun time on your birthday, even if you can not invite your teachers! I was in the sixth grade when I went to the Pizza Hut with my school bus driver, back in 1997. I was 12 years old. My bus driver's name was Joe; I still remember his name.



You are welcome! I am glad that your music class is going better & that your teacher got the students to come back. I am sorry that you were not good at playing the clarinet. I always had trouble learning music & instruments too.



You are welcome! Good luck with your science class.



I like talking with you on here too! I understand that you have a lot of homework, but I will always be here. I will just wait to hear from you.



Thank you! I have mixed feelings whenever I watch the old home movies that my Dad made on his camera when I was a kid. I like to remember the good times of my childhood, but seeing my mother again makes me sad because she is gone. I think of her every day. She died four years ago, and she was 60 years old. She had HIV. She was a nurse, and my family thinks that she got the virus from being exposed to patients that she cared for. I wish I could see her again, talk to her again, and spend time with her & do fun things again. I still like watching the old movies again though. Do you ever watch your old movies that your Dad made? Do you also like taking pictures with your Mom?



I do not know why that writer abandoned me. As far as I know, she has not written any new books since I last heard from her. She also has no You Tube videos any more. I am sorry that your friends from elementary school abandoned you. It seems like no one has any loyalty any more, except for people like you & me.



I like to eat breakfast, but whenever I go to work, I always have the same lunch every day, and it is always a small lunch. I prefer to eat alone, and I like eating at home better than restaurants or with other people around. I also prefer to eat my own food that I buy at the grocery store or cook at home instead of someone else's food. I have been making an effort to eat healthier too. I am sorry that you are afraid of choking on your sandwich. The public elementary school I attended had a cafeteria, but I did not like the food they served, so I always brought my own lunch.



I am going to watch the DVD about Koko the gorilla tomorrow or some time within the next few days. I will ask my old teacher if he remembers Koko the gorilla. We first heard about Koko the gorilla in a story which was in one of my school work books.



I never liked the gymnastics class at the Y.M.C.A. or the karate class at all. I hated being barefoot & having people around me seeing my feet.



I am glad you still like the board games! They are fun to play, even if you lose them! It is great that your friend is in your class & you can both play the sports together. I was terrible at sports, but I still liked at least getting exercise from running around the field.



You are welcome! I hope your memory gets better. That's cool about the show & how she won 1 million dollars!



I like putting children's books away at the library. They are fun to read. I am glad you got your books back after they were taken from you.



You are welcome! I will wait to here about the wedding!



You are welcome! Stress is no fun at all, and I am glad it is better for you.



You are welcome! You can tell me about your birthday! I like my birthdays too!



You are welcome! I hope you get in his club. You are welcome! I am glad you like speaking German!



It can be confusing trying to determine who are "friends." I am glad that I have at lease a few close friends. You are welcome! I hope you get in to your orchestra group.



Bye! I hope you had a good weekend too. Right now, I am watching reruns of a television show that I used to watch with my mother called Forensic Files. I am going to watch the show, and then wash my dishes, and go to sleep. I have to go to work at the library early tomorrow morning. Talk to you again soon!


Hi! I hope you had a nice dinner yesterday. I like eating at my own home too!

I will hopefully be able to post a lot more in this forum now. My homework load isn't as bad as it was last week so far. I used to have to write a whole journal entry about something I did over the weekend in elementary school. I hated it too! I would be having fun playing or doing something fun, but then I would have to write an essay about it and it ruined everything. Thankfully, I do not have to do that anymore. I am glad your computer is working again too, and that your dad was able to fix it.

I can never tell the difference between "friends" and "acquaintances" either. I agree, as long as I enjoy spending time with them it really does not matter. I almost have my own version of an Asperger's Syndrome meetup group at my school since there are so many autistic people there! I think it would be really fun to be able to meetup with people who have similar interests. I am sorry you did not like the group you went to last year, but I am glad you are having a good time in meetup groups now. I prefer to talk to people one-on-one, as I do not talk in large groups of people, but small groups are definitely better. I am glad you had a nice time at the cafe meetup! It was pretty embarrassing when I threw it down the other person's lane! I wasn't even standing in their lane- I was standing in my lane, but somehow my hands didn't do what my brain told them to do :) ! I hope your bowling meetup is fun too. It sounds like it will be pretty far away, but I am glad your Dad offered to drive you there!

I think we are going to see a movie based on a historical event. I forget what it was called, but I will look it up later. Red Robin is a pretty nice restaurant! I went there last year for my party as well. Thank you! I hope I have fun on my birthday and Halloween too! Thanks! I am sorry the place where you live doesn't have any kids around or decorations. I and out candy sometimes when I am done trick-or-treating, like you and your mother did! That always happens to me too! As soon as we sit down, our bell rings again! That is funny how you had to hide so it would not look like you were there! I have always been told that if somebody doesn't have their porch or garage light on, then I shouldn't knock on their door. Unfortunately, not everyone has a garage or porch light, so we never know if we are allowed to trick-or-treat there!

Thank you! It is cool how you remember all the details from your trip to the pizza place with your bus driver! My bus driver changes every day this year, and the bus is sometimes very late. We usually have to stand outside my school waiting for at least 30 minutes! I do not mind though, since my teachers sometimes stand out there with us and I can talk to them.

Thank you! I have my first music lesson tomorrow, and I have to miss German class. That is okay, it was just not the right instrument for me. Learning instruments is very hard!

Thank you! I always like talking on here as well. Hopefully you won't have to wait long :D ! I am going to try and post more often.

You're welcome! I am very sorry your mother passed away from HIV. I wish there were a cure for it. Wow. That is a very noble job, and I am so sorry that she had to get a virus from dealing with patients. She must have been pretty amazing. I wish you could see her again too. I am glad you still like watching the old movies, even if they cause mixed feelings for you. I also watch old movies my Dad made! My favorite ones to watch are the ones filmed on our birthday or Christmas, because we were all so happy to open gifts and spend time with each other. I like taking pictures with my mom, too. I am very sorry for your loss!

It does seem like people aren't very loyal to one another any more, except for you and me. I wish people were more loyal. I was so confused when my friends stopped playing with me on the playground and talking to me.

I am also trying to eat healthier. Since I do not eat a lot, it does not really matter, but I still want to eat healthier. What do you have for lunch? My cafeteria serves pretty good food. I am sorry your cafeteria did not serve anything you liked. I usually buy my lunch once a week, and then bring my own the rest of the time. One time during lunch two years ago, I went with my friend to a detention. It was her detention, but I still went with her because there was no one at my table and I thought detention would be fun. The teacher made us write lines, but we got to eat our lunch in a silent, empty room. That was nice!

Wow! I hope you have fun watching the DVD on Koko the gorilla! I used to have school work books for all of my classes too, but now everything is mainly electronic. I don't even have physical textbooks for some subjects! I have to go online.

I am sorry you never like gymnastics or karate.

Board games are always fun to play, even if I do lose them! The only annoying part is with certain board games where I need to roll a specific number on the dice to move, and I can never roll that number! They are still fun, though. Today gym class was not as fun, since it was very hot outside and I was open to catch the football the whole class, but nobody passed it to me. I also did not get to play with my friend. Hopefully next gym class will be better!

Thank you! It is cool how she won 1 million dollars!

I might want to work at a library one day. It seems fun! Thank you, I am glad I got my books back too.

Thank you! I will tell you about my birthday next week! My family and I are going to a Mexican restaurant on my birthday since my party is on Friday, and I am going to get a cheese quesadilla! I really like them, and I always get one whenever we go to that restaurant.

It can be confusing to determine who are "friends!" I am glad I have a few close friends as well. Thank you! I think I will find out which club(s) I am in tomorrow!

Bye! Thank you; I had an okay weekend. I used to watch that show too! I hope you had a nice day working in the library! I will talk to you soon!

Hi again! That is really weird. I wrote back to you yesterday, and when I pushed the "submit" button after I finished writing, I was interrupted by a message saying "are you a robot?" It showed me pictures, and then it asked me to select each square in the picture which contained a storefront, and then which square had a car in them. After I did the picture thing, I was returned to Wrong Planet, and it said that my message was posted successfully. That is just my guess for what happened. It is the second time I have posted something only to have it lost completely. It is frustrating!



I hope you had a nice dinner too. Mine have been good, and I like eating my own food, in my own home, better than going to a restaurant & having a lot of people around, and not knowing if I will like the restaurant's food.



I am glad that you can post more often in this forum, and that your homework load has lightened. I am sorry that you had to write those journal entries about your weekends in elementary school. I had to do the same thing when I was in school, even when I was a senior in high school. I would also be doing something fun, and then I had to write about it, which ruined everything. I am glad that you do not have to do it any more. It must be a big relief! My Dad did a good job helping fix my computer, and I thanked him for his help.



My guess is that "friends" are people that you really like spending time with and that you know well, and that "acquaintances" are just people that you have met before. I could be wrong, but it is just my guess; if you have fun with them, then it does not really matter. How do you like your own Asperger's syndrome meetup at your school? I like being able to meetup with people in my community that I have similar interests with. I only went to the meetup group I was in last year just 3 times, and they were no fun, but I wanted to give them a chance & see if they would improve. The first meetup I had with them was not much fun, and the second one I went to was even worst. The third, and final meetup I went to with that group was the worst meetup I even went to, and I just left the group. A month ago, I actually wrote about that experience here on Wrong Planet on the topic Not fitting in with NTs, not fitting in with Aspies. The meetup group I am in now is a lot better; it is just a small group, but I like small groups better. I do not like large groups of people either. I am sorry that you were embarrassed when you went bowling; that is so weird how it happened! I hope my bowling meetup is fun too. I do not know how to get there, but I thanked my Dad for offering to drive me there.



I hope you like the movie you see on your birthday! How was your party at Red Robin last year? Do you remember what you ate there? You are welcome! Have fun! I wish I could decorate for Halloween again; it was always a lot of fun when I was a kid. I also liked handing out candy with my Mom too. I guess I will not be answering my door or handing out any candy this year! I was also told the same thing when I was a kid that you should not go to houses which have their lights off.



You are welcome! I wonder what that school bus driver is doing now; maybe he still drives a school bus? My bus drivers used to change a lot too, and my bus was sometimes very late. I used to worry about my bus being late. That sounds like fun waiting with your teachers & talking to them.



You are welcome! I hope your first music lesson went well. Will you have a chance to make up your German class that you missed? Learning instruments is very hard, and it takes time to find the right instrument. I was just reminded of something funny: My teacher from high school who I really liked a lot, who moved away, used to say that the French language is like the violin because it is nice, smooth, calming and relaxing, and that the German language is like the tuba, because it is loud, rough, and crude!



You are welcome! You are a lot of fun to talk to on here! I hope you can post more often, and that you do not have to wait long.



I really miss my mother, and I think of her every day. I also wish there was a cure for HIV. I wish she was never exposed to the virus, especially from her patients, which was the only job she ever wanted to do. She was amazing. I have a picture of her on my refrigerator door with a magnet on it. It would be nice to see her & spend time with her again, and I also wish I could talk to her again. I still like our old home movies, but I have mixed feelings about them. My Dad also used to make home movies of me & my brothers on our birthdays & Christmas. We were always happy opening our gifts & spending time with each other. I wish I still had the gifts I got during my childhood! I am glad you like taking pictures with your Mom. Thank you!



I do not understand why people are not loyal to each other any more, except for you & me. I also wish people were more loyal. I am sorry that your friends stopped playing with you & talking to you. Speaking of loyalty, the strangest thing happened to me two nights ago. I had a weird dream while I was sleeping, and the writer that I used to E mail & talk to on the telephone, who was disloyal to me & just abandoned me, was in the dream, along with something that I always used to associate with her. It was really weird! Back when we were pen pals, I used to tell her that she was like the sister that I never had. She was an only child, and she told me that she wanted to have a brother too. I do not knew what I ever did that made her cut off all contact with me, but I never meant to cause her any problems or be a nuisance to her; I was just a fan of her books.



I have been feeling better since I have started exercising & eating healthier. I do not eat a lot either. I always have the same lunch whenever I go to work. I always bring a Kellogg Special K chocolate protein milkshake, a Yoplait yogurt, a piece of string cheese, and a granola bar. I am glad you like the food at your cafeteria. What was it like going to detention with your friend? I never got sent to detention in school. I think I would like it better eating lunch in a silent, empty room, than a loud, disgusting lunch room!



The DVD on Koko the gorilla was interesting, and I am going to E mail my old teacher about it. I hope he still remembers when we used to talk about Koko the gorilla from my school workbooks! I have heard that a lot of school have discontinued physical textbooks & workbooks, and that a lot of education is online now.



I hope you never have have to take gymnastics or karate in school!



I still like playing board games, even when I lose them, which is most of the time! I also have the same problem whenever I play board games with the dice; I can never roll the number that I need! I still have fun playing the games, though. I am sorry that your gym class was no fun, and I hope it improves soon!



You are welcome! That is cool about the 1 million dollars. I heard something strange a few days ago. I remember there was an elderly woman on the show several years ago, her name was Susan Boil, and I heard that there was a false news report that she had died. A lot of people are angry about it.



Working at the library is fun, and you may like it if you want to work there one day. I had a bad day at the library today because I had to take a course that I hated, and it made me very uncomfortable. I told my Dad about it, and he said that it was not my fault, but the course is a requirement for all library staff. You are welcome! That is good that you got your books back.



You are welcome! Have a fun birthday! I like Mexican food too! I also get a cheese quesadilla whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant too! I really like them too! I do not like anything on them besides the tortilla & the cheese. Do you like your cheese quesadilla soft or crispy better?



I never know who are "friends" either, but I like having a few close friends too. You are welcome! I hope you got in to your clubs! Have you found out which clubs you are in yet?



Bye! You are welcome! My weekend was okay too. My mother & I used to watch that show all the time! One of the television stations here in San Diego shows Forensic Files reruns every Sunday night for 2 hours, and I still enjoy watching them! I had a very bad day working at the library today, but hopefully, tomorrow will be better. I have Fridays off, and I go grocery shopping every Friday. I hope I can sleep tonight; sometimes when I have a bad day, I can not sleep at night. I go back to work at the library on Saturday, and I hope it is better that it was today. It is getting late now, and I am going to try & get some sleep. Have fun, and I will talk to you again soon!

The third, and final meetup I went to with that group was the worst meetup I even went to, and I just left the group. A month ago, I actually wrote about that experience here on Wrong Planet on the topic Not fitting in with NTs, not fitting in with Aspies. The meetup group I am in now is a lot better; it is just a small group, but I like small groups better. I do not like large groups of people either. I am sorry that you were embarrassed when you went bowling; that is so weird how it happened! I hope my bowling meetup is fun too. I do not know how to get there, but I thanked my Dad for offering to drive me there.



I hope you like the movie you see on your birthday! How was your party at Red Robin last year? Do you remember what you ate there? You are welcome! Have fun! I wish I could decorate for Halloween again; it was always a lot of fun when I was a kid. I also liked handing out candy with my Mom too. I guess I will not be answering my door or handing out any candy this year! I was also told the same thing when I was a kid that you should not go to houses which have their lights off.



You are welcome! I wonder what that school bus driver is doing now; maybe he still drives a school bus? My bus drivers used to change a lot too, and my bus was sometimes very late. I used to worry about my bus being late. That sounds like fun waiting with your teachers & talking to them.



You are welcome! I hope your first music lesson went well. Will you have a chance to make up your German class that you missed? Learning instruments is very hard, and it takes time to find the right instrument. I was just reminded of something funny: My teacher from high school who I really liked a lot, who moved away, used to say that the French language is like the violin because it is nice, smooth, calming and relaxing, and that the German language is like the tuba, because it is loud, rough, and crude!



You are welcome! You are a lot of fun to talk to on here! I hope you can post more often, and that you do not have to wait long.



I really miss my mother, and I think of her every day. I also wish there was a cure for HIV. I wish she was never exposed to the virus, especially from her patients, which was the only job she ever wanted to do. She was amazing. I have a picture of her on my refrigerator door with a magnet on it. It would be nice to see her & spend time with her again, and I also wish I could talk to her again. I still like our old home movies, but I have mixed feelings about them. My Dad also used to make home movies of me & my brothers on our birthdays & Christmas. We were always happy opening our gifts & spending time with each other. I wish I still had the gifts I got during my childhood! I am glad you like taking pictures with your Mom. Thank you!



I do not understand why people are not loyal to each other any more, except for you & me. I also wish people were more loyal. I am sorry that your friends stopped playing with you & talking to you. Speaking of loyalty, the strangest thing happened to me two nights ago. I had a weird dream while I was sleeping, and the writer that I used to E mail & talk to on the telephone, who was disloyal to me & just abandoned me, was in the dream, along with something that I always used to associate with her. It was really weird! Back when we were pen pals, I used to tell her that she was like the sister that I never had. She was an only child, and she told me that she wanted to have a brother too. I do not knew what I ever did that made her cut off all contact with me, but I never meant to cause her any problems or be a nuisance to her; I was just a fan of her books.



I have been feeling better since I have started exercising & eating healthier. I do not eat a lot either. I always have the same lunch whenever I go to work. I always bring a Kellogg Special K chocolate protein milkshake, a Yoplait yogurt, a piece of string cheese, and a granola bar. I am glad you like the food at your cafeteria. What was it like going to detention with your friend? I never got sent to detention in school. I think I would like it better eating lunch in a silent, empty room, than a loud, disgusting lunch room!



The DVD on Koko the gorilla was interesting, and I am going to E mail my old teacher about it. I hope he still remembers when we used to talk about Koko the gorilla from my school workbooks! I have heard that a lot of school have discontinued physical textbooks & workbooks, and that a lot of education is online now.



I hope you never have have to take gymnastics or karate in school!



I still like playing board games, even when I lose them, which is most of the time! I also have the same problem whenever I play board games with the dice; I can never roll the number that I need! I still have fun playing the games, though. I am sorry that your gym class was no fun, and I hope it improves soon!



You are welcome! That is cool about the 1 million dollars. I heard something strange a few days ago. I remember there was an elderly woman on the show several years ago, her name was Susan Boil, and I heard that there was a false news report that she had died. A lot of people are angry about it.



Working at the library is fun, and you may like it if you want to work there one day. I had a bad day at the library today because I had to take a course that I hated, and it made me very uncomfortable. I told my Dad about it, and he said that it was not my fault, but the course is a requirement for all library staff. You are welcome! That is good that you got your books back.



You are welcome! Have a fun birthday! I like Mexican food too! I also get a cheese quesadilla whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant too! I really like them too! I do not like anything on them besides the tortilla & the cheese. Do you like your cheese quesadilla soft or crispy better?



I never know who are "friends" either, but I like having a few close friends too. You are welcome! I hope you got in to your clubs! Have you found out which clubs you are in yet?



Bye! You are welcome! My weekend was okay too. My mother & I used to watch that show all the time! One of the television stations here in San Diego shows Forensic Files reruns every Sunday night for 2 hours, and I still enjoy watching them! I had a very bad day working at the library today, but hopefully, tomorrow will be better. I have Fridays off, and I go grocery shopping every Friday. I hope I can sleep tonight; sometimes when I have a bad day, I can not sleep at night. I go back to work at the library on Saturday, and I hope it is better that it was today. It is getting late now, and I am going to try & get some sleep. Have fun, and I will talk to you again soon!


Hi! I am so sorry I haven't replied until now, but I had so much schoolwork, I was very unwell (I had a virus), and I have just had my small party with my friends!

That is very weird! I had that once as well, and the first time I tried to join Wrongplanet I could not because of the "are you a robot?" message. That must have been so frustrating!

Thank you! I had a nice dinner on my birthday too! I did not get to go to my favorite restaurant because I was sick sadly, but I still had some nice McDonalds. I always try and order the same thing at restaurants, since I never know if I will like the food either.

Thank you! Sadly, my homework load was very heavy this week, and I even forgot one of my assignments at home because I felt so terrible and overloaded by being sick and having so much work. It is certainly a big relief to not have to write about fun things I did over the weekend anymore!

I agree with your definition of friend too. We do not have an "official" Asperger's meetup at my school, but we do all sort of congregate together since we are not really popular or anything like that. I like being able to meetup with people who have similar interests as well! It is good that you gave the old meetup groups a chance, even though they were not fun at all. It is good how you are having fun at the new meetup group! It is very weird what happened when I tried to bowl! I hope you have/had fun!

Thank you! It was a pretty good movie, even though there were some unexpected parts! I always get a cheeseburger when I go to Red Robin, since I know I will like it. I had my birthday party last night and it was so fun! There were singers that sang happy birthday to me, which was kind of embarrassing, but my friend made a joke about asking them to make me a song album for my birthday which was funny. It was certainly very fun, and I hope I can do it again next year too! My favorite teacher also wished me a happy birthday, and I got into his club!

Maybe he does still drive a school bus. That would be cool. My bus is no longer late since we have a new driver, but I enjoyed talking to my teachers when it was late everyday.

Thank you! I just had to get the work from my German class that I missed because of a music lesson, so I do not actually have to make up the class. I agree with your teacher from high school! German does sound like the tuba and French like the violin!

I am very sorry about your mother. I am glad you have a picture of her on your refrigerator to remind you of her. I am also very glad you were able to have good memories of spending time with each other. You are welcome!

I wish people were more loyal as well. That is a weird dream! I wish she was more loyal so you could still talk to her and be a fan of her books. I am sure you didn't do anything wrong, and you never know- maybe something terrible happened to her and she was no longer able to write.

I am going to try and exercise and eat healthier too! I have not ate very well this week since I had my birthday party, and I have been sick so I couldn't exercise well either. Detention was pretty nice! It was definitely nicer than the lunchroom. I really miss lunch last year. My friend and I had a whole table all to ourselves and it wasn't loud, crowded, and horrible! I have so much trouble eating with so many people around, and I always get frustrated when there is not enough room at our table.

My school has also discontinued most workbooks and textbooks, and the only class I have workbooks for is German. I really miss elementary school, because we used to have workbooks, and it was much easier to keep track of assignments. I hope your teacher still remembered Koko the Gorilla!

Thank you! I am switching gym teachers on Monday, and I think I have to run a mile! I don't run long distances very much, so it will be hard to get a good time.

I have heard of Susan Boyle as well. She was on Britain's Got Talent, and I think people were angry because she has Asperger's Syndrome too.

I am sorry you had a bad day at the library! What sort of course did you have to take? I have to do certain courses at my school as well, and I always get very annoyed and uncomfortable.

Thank you! I do not like anything on my quesadillas except cheese either! I used to have a cheese quesadilla every day after I came home from kindergarten for lunch, since my kindergarten was only half of a day. Now I like to make them as a snack, and I prefer to have a crispy tortilla. My family said that we could go to the Mexican restaurant on a different day since I was feeling to unwell to go on my birthday.

I love having close friends too! I got into my favorite teacher's club! I consider him to be one of my friends as well. I also got into my smaller orchestra group that rehearses before school, and it is so fun! I may even get to play my instrument for veterans at our Veteran's Day Assembly!

Bye! I hope working at the library will be better from now on! I have trouble going to sleep on bad days as well. I will talk to you soon as well!

I'm sorry! I can't see your post^^^^^^





Hi again! That is really weird. I wrote back to you yesterday, and when I pushed the "submit" button after I finished writing, I was interrupted by a message saying "are you a robot?" It showed me pictures, and then it asked me to select each square in the picture which contained a storefront, and then which square had a car in them. After I did the picture thing, I was returned to Wrong Planet, and it said that my message was posted successfully. That is just my guess for what happened. It is the second time I have posted something only to have it lost completely. It is frustrating!



I hope you had a nice dinner too. Mine have been good, and I like eating my own food, in my own home, better than going to a restaurant & having a lot of people around, and not knowing if I will like the restaurant's food.



I am glad that you can post more often in this forum, and that your homework load has lightened. I am sorry that you had to write those journal entries about your weekends in elementary school. I had to do the same thing when I was in school, even when I was a senior in high school. I would also be doing something fun, and then I had to write about it, which ruined everything. I am glad that you do not have to do it any more. It must be a big relief! My Dad did a good job helping fix my computer, and I thanked him for his help.



My guess is that "friends" are people that you really like spending time with and that you know well, and that "acquaintances" are just people that you have met before. I could be wrong, but it is just my guess; if you have fun with them, then it does not really matter. How do you like your own Asperger's syndrome meetup at your school? I like being able to meetup with people in my community that I have similar interests with. I only went to the meetup group I was in last year just 3 times, and they were no fun, but I wanted to give them a chance & see if they would improve. The first meetup I had with them was not much fun, and the second one I went to was even worst.

Hi! It is great to hear from you again! I was waiting to hear back from you! I was worried that maybe something happened to you. I am sorry that you had so much schoolwork, and that you had a virus. I hope you got it all done, and I hope you get well soon. How was your small birthday party with your friends?



Yes, that "robot" message was weird. It was frustrating when it came up. I wrote a great reply to you, and then the stupid "are you a robot" message came up & deleted everything I typed. It was frustrating! I had never seen a message like it before. The other time I lost a message was a few months ago; I typed a reply which took over an hour to write, edit, and proofread, and when I pushed the "submit" button, I was told to log in to Wrong Planet again, and my whole reply was gone, and I had to rewrite everything! It was very frustrating!



You are welcome! I am glad that you had a nice dinner on your birthday, but I am sorry that you could not eat at your favourite restaurant, and that you were sick on your birthday. We have McDonalds restaurants here in San Diego too, but I do not eat there very often. There are actually have 2 of them right down the street from where I live. People here like to call it "Mickey-Dees"! It is difficult for me to try new foods, and I worry that I may not like the food. I always order the same foods when I go out to eat at restaurants, and I always order my foods the same way every time, since I do not know if I will like the food.



You are welcome! I am sorry you had so much homework this week, and that your forgot one of your assignments at home because you were sick. I did the same thing when I was younger & went to school, but fortunately, I was healthy & I did not get sick very often. I only remember I few times when I had to stay home & not go to school for a few days. When I went to school, a lot of students would pretend they were sick because they did not want to go to school! I never did it, though. That is great that you did not have to write about what you did over the weekend; I hated having to write about my weekends in school!



I am glad that you like your Asperger's syndrome meetup group at your school, even if it is "unofficial." I also like to congregate & meetup with people that I have similar interests with. I have never been really popular either, but it is nice to meetup with other people who also never really popular, and just spend time together with each other as a small group. I am also glad that I tried the old meetup groups just to see what they were like; I never heard from any one from those groups again, so I do not know what they are doing now. There is a new meetup group for adults with Asperger's syndrome which starts this upcoming Thursday, and I signed up for it. I hope it is a good group. Sadly, I will be unable to go bowling with my meetup group this Saturday; it was originally scheduled for Saturday at 7:00 p.m., but for some reason, it was rescheduled for 11:00 a.m. I can not go because I start work at 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays. I wrote to them & apologised that I could not go with them, and I explained why I could not go, and I said that I would be at their next event. That was weird what happened when you went bowling; does your Dad still remember it, and do you still talk to him about it?



You are welcome! I am glad that you like the movie, even if it was unexpected. I have never eaten at Red Robin, but I always get a cheeseburger too whenever I go out to eat, and I know that I will like it. I do not like any toppings or condiments on my cheeseburger; all I like is just the hamburger, the cheese, and the buns. When I was growing up, my parents always took me & my brothers out to a hamburger restaurant called Fuddruckers on our birthdays, and I always got a cheeseburger every time. They were always really big & messy cheeseburgers, but I still liked them. We also used to tell them it was our birthday, and they would always give us a coupon for a free cookie from the bakery. I have not eaten there for a while; my Dad still occasionally takes me there, and I still like it there. I am sorry that you got embarrassed by the singers singing happy birthday to you, but your friend's joke was funny! It sounds like it was a lot of fun! I am glad that your favourite teacher wished you a happy birthday, and that you got in to his club!



Yes, maybe he still drives a school bus. Here is an interesting fact, some of the school buses that I rode on when I went to school are actually still in service. I know they are the same buses because I sometimes still see them on the road when I am driving my car, and I still remember the bus number & the licence plate numbers on the buses. It seemed like my school district never updated their fleet of school buses; when I went to school, they were still using buses which were built back in the 1970s, before I was even born, and the manufacturers of those buses are now out of business! I am glad you are not late any more with your new driver, but I am sorry that you can not talk to your teachers any more when it is late.



You are welcome! I am glad that you got caught up with your German class & your music class. It made me laugh when my old teacher compared French to the violin & German to the tuba, and it still makes me laugh today! It is fun to think back on those old times!



I miss my mother a lot too. Her picture on my refrigerator makes me happy, though. We had a lot of good times together, and my memories of her, and me spending time with her, always comfort me. I still like to do things we used to do together. Right now, I am eating some pop corn, which was something she liked to eat, and I am listening to some music that she liked; it is an album that she used to play in her car.



Loyalty is a mystery to me too; I do not know why people are not loyal any more. It was weird that I had that dream about her, and that object that I always associated with her; I do not know why I had it! She was an interesting young woman, and I really wish she would have stayed in touch with me. I really liked her books; they were fascinating. Maybe something terrible happened to her & she could not write any more, but it would have been nice to know what happened to her, or why she abandoned me. Another person I really liked who suddenly abandoned me, who I actually knew, was my old job developer, who helped me get my job at the library. She quit working for the company I was with, and she told me that I could stay in touch with her, but she stopped responding to my E mails & telephone calls. I never saw her or heard anything from her again either.



That sounds great that you want to try exercising & eating healthier. I am so sorry that you were sick & could not eat or exercise, especially on your birthday. I am glad that you liked your detention better than the lunchroom, but I am sorry that you & your friend can not have your table all to yourselves. I also have trouble eating with other people around, and I hate not having enough room at the table.



That is interesting about the workbooks & textbooks. Since I do not go to school any more, I do not know what goes on in schools any more. I am sorry that you miss elementary school, and that it is harder for you to keep track of all of your assignments. I am going to E mail my old teacher & ask him if he still remembers Koko the gorilla! I E mailed him last week, but I forgot to mention Koko the gorilla in my E mail!



You are welcome! Good luck in your gym class with your new teacher! I am sorry that you have to run a mile. I also had to run a mile in my gym class. I had to do it twice every week, and I hated it. We just ran in a big circle around the playing fields, and I would always get sweaty & exhausted. I never got a very good time, and I did not run long distances either. It would always take me 15 to 20 minutes to run the complete mile, but I gradually got quicker at it.



I did not know that Susan Boyle has Asperger's syndrome. I am not really familiar with her music. Do you like to watch Britain's Got Talent too? Isn't one of the panelists from AGT on that show as well?



Thank you! I am feeling better about what happened to me at the library 10 days ago. I had to take an interactive course on the computer about sexual harassment. It made me feel very annoyed & uncomfortable; I do not like talking about sex, and I have never sexually harassed any one before in my entire life. The course took my entire work shift to complete, and I missed my lunch break because of it. I wrote about it here on Wrong Planet in a section called The Haven, and I got some helpful responses & explanations for my problem. It is just a requirement that all City Of San Diego employees take the course. I also talked with my Dad, my job coach, and my old teacher from high school in our last E mail.



You are welcome! Did you make quesadillas yourself when you were in Kindergarten for lunch, or did someone else make them for you? I like them both soft & crispy, and I have discovered that there are different ways to make them. Sometimes I make them in my microwave oven, sometimes in my toaster oven, sometimes on my stove top, or sometimes in my oven. I also like them with both flour tortillas & corn tortillas, and I also make them as a snack. I still do not put anything in them except cheese, but sometimes I like to eat tortilla chips with them on the side! Have fun going to the Mexican restaurant when you feel healthy again!



It is great to have close friends! That is great that you got in to your favourite teacher's club, and that he is one of your friends! Your orchestra group sounds like fun too, and I wish I could have done something like it back when I went to school! Have fun playing for the veterans at your Veteran's Day assembly! This year, Veterans Day is on a Saturday.



Bye! Thank you! I also hope that my job at the library will be better from now on! So far, it has not been bad, and I have not had any problems at work since I had to take the sexual harassment course. I could not sleep on that night, and I struggled the next day. I have not had any problems going to sleep since then, though. I hope you get well soon, and I will talk to you again soon!

I tried learning to play guitar when I was in 7th grade. I took lessons but the guy was very unreliable & I have really bad fine-motor skills. I was also stressed out from being at skewl so I quit by the time I started high-skewl. I eventually ended up selling it to a pawnshop. I don't think I'm the rite type of person to play any instruments

You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

It is good to hear from you again, and I am glad that you are doing okay; I was worried about you. I am sorry that you are overloaded with work, so I will wait to hear from you again. I have a lot to share with you!
