That, even though I have a lot of social opportunities and people like me, I am nowhere close to being on their level in everyday adult life, and probably never will be. They grew up and became something, while I never did. I likely won't get beyond where I am now. I'm in a much better place than I was years ago, but I don't see myself progressing much further.

I've learned that despite the many achievements made so far as it pertains to Autistic people being hired in the workplace, there is still a great deal of work to do..

Anyone who believes that using strong foul language makes you more intelligent and honest are just being morons filled with hubris. -_- That's, like, an incontrovertible equivalent to saying "There's no morality and righteousness without Christianity", IMHO.

planting stuff outside in the garden is a naturally therapeutic way to cure boredom and that its interesting to watch things grow from seed and that there are benefits of boredom as it then allows you to convert it into doing more abstract things, whereas when bored its easy to get stuck on that known narrow path. the unknown is interesting to explore for a bit.

Cesar got his nickname because of the car he drove, it was the same as one that an American film star drove.

I'm still going to go with the common misspelling of his name sometimes cos the guy conquered Europe.
