Contextual and Historical Studies

Saturday, 22 March 2008

I've received a letter from my "CHS" (basically art history - boring) lecture saying that my research file need to be handed in for assessment in two weeks! He's listed all the subjects he covered but in the wrong order and split up, so I'm really confused about whether I have all the relevant notes.

On the learning to drive front, I went to a petrol station today and it was quite scary with all the strange people in their big 4x4s and Volvos. I can't even answer the phone or door without knowing exactly who it is beforehand so you can understand how intimidating that situation could be.

I'll try and be a bit more interesting in my posting material in the future. Thanks.

Today was Pretty Lazy

Tuesday, 18 March 2008

I hardly achieved anything today. I did wash my car and fix the brake light, but hardly anything eventful happened. That's the problem with living in the middle of nowhere and because of the Asperger's I can begin to describe how hard I would find it to just get on a bus to the nearest town. My brother missed school today because he had a bit of a cold, but to be honest he would have been fine if he had just taken a couple of painkillers with him.

I keep thinking it's Wednesday and getting really confused with trying to fit thing into my schedule which won't happen until tomorrow. I keep rabbiting on and I'm sure that no-one will read this blog more than once so I'll keep this post short. Thanks for reading.

Asperger's Syndrome

Monday, 17 March 2008

The Simple English Wikipedia has this to say on the subject:

When a person has Asperger Syndrome it affects the way in which they understand other people, talk with other people, and act with other people. A person who has "Asperger Syndrome" often seems to be rather odd, and may not seem to fit in well with other people. (Simple English Wikipedia, 17/03/08)
Now, I have AS and I am beginning to find it very hard to live a normal life. I cannot do what most of you probably take for granted; shopping for example. Nearly any 12 year old can just go into a shop and buy something, I could never do that, even now I have bought two things in the last year in a shop. TWO. It's like being in a foreign country where you don't know the language because I just can talk to someone I don't know. Even with my very few friends I still only agree with what they say and rarely input into the conversation.

I really wish I was normal so I could understand feelings and actually be normal.

If any one is out there listening, I have a little query. There's this girl in my class at college and I really like her, and I know she likes me as a friend but I don't know whether she finds me attractive or what to say, and I'm frightened of her turning me down. I know I'm in college, but I've never had a girlfriend before. Ever. I have no idea what to do or anything and I don't really like talking to people at the best of times so some tips would really help. She's just so lovely and gorgeous and I'm too scared to tell her how I feel


Driving Escapades

Hi. This is my blog and I doubt that anyone will ever read it but I want to try and keep it regular, so here it goes.

Today was overall quite exciting! I went driving for the second time ever on the roads! It was a bit hairy around the sharp corners on the main road with BIG lorries coming the other way bit I made it, my little car's still in one piece and I'm really looking forward to going out on the open road again sometime. I have a couple of really lessons with an instructor in a few weeks and I don't want to pick up too many bad habits before I lean the right way.
