jus4u76, you shouldn't post more than one thread with the same topic. If you don't get any replies, that means no one has anything to say. Posting it again is not going to help its just going to make people angry.
How could anyone here get mad at an aspie for being annoying?



We're human. We can also get annoyed at our own kind just like NTs get annoyed with other NTs. We are no different or superior.

Don't pay any attention to the skeptics, they're just being mean because they're jealous.

I think you're definitely Ph.D. material if you pick the right field.

You could easily become a mental health professional or a social worker.

Quoted for truth, I have had several encounters with said professionals and believe their high standards of hiring only the laziest and most mentally ill individuals would be the perfect environment for you to thrive in . After all, aren't those the very qualities of the clients who would be referred to you, so you would have "theory of mind" down with out even having to read about it .(and God knows you don't want to have to read some of their family histories...talk about boring and depressing, yuck...lets hope they have the technology to just let them make audio tapes of this background stuff..(you can listen to them while watching utube videos...Yea!)

You might also consider politics....Sara Palin has been such an inspiration to so many illiterate people and bulldogs every where .

do you think i can take the exam without finishing any of the books if i read the reviews on the internet?


I can't believe I'm reading this.

I always tried to plan for exams in good time and study from my books.

I had to read all of the required material.

I bought study/revision guides too to supplement my solo learning for exams.

If I was stuck or had a question, I asked the teacher in good time.


Are you for real?

I've never gotten lower than a B+ in my english or history classes in college. I have read maybe 1/20 of the reading material required.

I don't think you need to worry too much about finishing your college degree. Especially if you can't answer that question yourself.


im planning to get a phd


You can do that. But you have to study and work. It has to be the center of your thinking for a long time.


i could have sch even though i don't hear or see things?
whut do u meen that i hav grameticall problams?

(Addressing the forum generally, not jus4u76. Sorry for being rude if I'm incorrect.)

Er, I would like to point out that jus4u56's spelling is usually better than the example above. It is quite possible that the example above was written that way to respond in a trollish way to the mention of "grammatical problems".

Ja, so I don't think she's for real.

Fair enough.

Selective and relevant material.

That's what I meant to say.
And Planning.

It depends on how the course is structured and what the marks are awarded for I guess.

College tries to overwhelm you, by giving you more than you can (or think you can) handle at once - like having to study for more than one exam at the same time. Its part of what makes you valuable to employers once you've finished your degree, because finishing your degree proves that you can deal with stressful situations, handle more than one problem at a time, etc. In many jobs, they don't even care what subject your degree is in, as long as you've earned one. For that matter, you can be a complete self-taught expert in whatever field you want a job in - if you don't have a degree, you might not get your foot in your door because you haven't demonstrated that you can handle these things.

Another thing too, colleges make you take a wide variety of courses (general eductation) because inevitably, you're going to encounter subjects that you don't like, aren't particularly adept at, etc. Getting your degree shows that you can persevere through these issues as well.

So the point of this post is to simply show you that although it seems tough, and it probably is, what you've got to do is to stop lamenting the difficulty or however hopeless it seems, suck it up, and get busy on it. Figure out how much time you have left, divide it up, read as much of each of those 6 books as you can. You may not make it through all of them, you may not study for the math test as much as you want, but you'll probably do better between the two tests than you will if you spend all your time lamenting your situation or being despondent about it. Good luck!

I just want to tell you that you are not alone. Everyone who has finished college has experienced something like what you're feeling right now. I mean, at my school, there was no designated period for mid term exams, but I once had 6 in the space of three days. I realized this about two weeks beforehand, and pretty much got very minimal sleep for those next two weeks. But it can be done. You can do it too. Believe in yourself and you will.
