Clearly, the creator of Quiz Galaxy has never met an autistic person.

Hmm... It told me I'm "Socially Smart," which seems way off - I'm *least* comfortable needing to deal with people socially :-p

Just don't trust Quiz Galaxy any farther than you can throw it.[/homestarrunnerreference]

Matt, Autistic people tend to be geniuses. And you are all-around smart. I am school-smart.

I'm not really all-around smart. I'm great at things like math, but essays are, well, possibly how I'm going to die.

Didn't see anything offensive, I think you were talking about your comment that they never met an autistic person, but that wasn't really offensive since it's clear that you worry about being stupid even though you aren't-and anyone would get that impression from reading even a tiny bit of your journal or comments.

(Explanation to anyone besides us who happens to revisit this entry even later than we did: Some drama on LJ that happened much later made it seem not only plausible, but likely, that a lot of my old entries and comments - including this one - might make people, even my LJ friends, hate me, so I linked to all of the posts that I was worried about.)

but that wasn't really offensive since, except to members of autism communities on LJ who'll see that remark as a stereotype that cannot be tolerated, it's clear that you worry about being stupid even though you aren't

Bah. Quit it. You are worrying about nothing. I hug you.

I guarantee you that if this were posted in autism or asperger it would have caused a flame war, but okay.

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...
