August 14th, 2011

When the End Times come, we will all procrastinate the Creative Vortexes of the Apocalypse @ 01:15 am

Right now I am annoyingly: tired should REALLY go to bed now
Soundtrack: see entry

Last day before I move into my dorm...

This is how I feel:

BEST ORCHESTRAL VIDEO GAME MUSIC EVER! And now I can play it at a normal volume (too loud for 1:30 AM, though) without anyone complaining twenty seconds in! :D

It's actually going somewhat better than I expected - right now I finally have most of my room organized, and while I was originally still just as confused (maybe even more so) as I was on my visit, I think I'm finally starting to start to (yes, saying "start" twice was intentional) get the hang of it. :)

Hey, it's a learning process, especially because of the autism! (and I so didn't mean to be offensive... it'll take more time for you to adjust!) Hopefully, there is help available for you and others who may take a little longer to figure things out. :)

I'm not offended - if you want to see people with autism get offended by every single juxtaposition of the words "autism" and either "disability", "disorder", "disadvantages", etc., go here or here. Especially the latter. (Though, thankfully, not every member of either of those communities is like that.)

And yeah, as it turns out, when it comes to doing anything outside my room, I haven't adjusted at all :(

Well, it's good that you're not offended. I've encountered people like that, and they're impossible to deal with!

It'll take time - you've only been there for a day or so, right?

I know, right? I think that might be where some neurotypicals come up with the stereotype that all people with autism are annoying.

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure I've made a fool of myself more than the other freshmen so far, as I will post about (and have mentioned posting about in four different comments so far...hopefully I'm almost done reading my LJ comments so that I can finally get to work on it!).

I don't mean that ALL people with autism / Asperger's are annoying... some are, but then some "normal" people are annoying, too. :P

Ah, well... then I will read that post when it's up!

I never said you thought people with autism were annoying - I was saying that people with autism who think everything's an insult might be where the NTs who do think that way get that stereotype.

The sad part is they'll let other people talk about problems that people with autism tend to face, but when I talk about problems that people with autism tend to face, all hell breaks loose. Several times.

Oh, right - I get it now!

Why the different treatment? Are you one of the youngest people there, so they think you don't know what you're talking about?

It seems to be that most people there are biased against anyone who even used to support a cure for autism and/or Autism Speaks. Just look at this entry. Sheesh.

Indeed. And very how I feel right now.
