Now recently I have joint a job scheme that specialises with people with AS or anything like that and what they do is they come out to see you at a certain place and I had an appointment yesterday and the person said to me that I am one in a few and she said what she meant about it was and she explained that I know what I want in like and I am not going to let anything get in the way and that I am very confident. Also said that my social life is much better than some people with Aspeger Syndrome that is because I'm at a point in life where I want to be with people. Also I was at my church and the pastor of my church said to me that I am doing really well now and have started to change. Thought I would share that because I feel so good about it at the moment.

Sounds to me like you are doing well and it has been noted by two independent sources. That's cool, hard work will get you ahead in life. :D

I stand corrected, people should not bother with hard work. Instead, get a job, call in sick and show up late frequently and be a non productive slacker when you are at work. Then, when you get fired, blame the boss for being an assh**e. Thats how to be successful, right Willard?

Hard work does get you places. I don't mean just in terms of a profession. I worked hard at learning body language. I worked extremely hard at trying to recognize facial expressions. I still have a fascination with pictures of people with different expressions on their face.

I worked really hard at these things, and it helped me get ahead in life. I worked hard at learning social conventions. And I have a full time job. I think any work you do is laudable.

Congratulations.

I would like to be less of a social spaz. I am taking steps to address this. Agree 100% with your statement DevonB.
