Last day before I move into my dorm...

This is how I feel:



EDIT IN 2018: It was an orchestral remix of the Super Mario World castle theme but the video is gone now :( Any YouTube result for "super mario world castle orchestra" would also fit but it probably wouldn't be the video that was here originally.

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

Thanks! :)

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.

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

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.

Oops, I didn't notice that it was a members-only entry. D'OH!

Indeed. And very how I feel right now.

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
