Aspie? Semi-aspie..?
Continuing from: http://www.livejournal.com/~ibneko/409258.html

Yeah, last post for tonight, I promise. I need to stop procrastinating.

I consulted Senpai, since she is taking psychology. Anyhow, from what she said, I'd have to show a much greater social deficiency, but while the diagnosis is subjective, I wouldn't meet the DSM diagnosis (see wiki page), which is true, now anyways. Although I think she might be wrong when she said it's a childhood disease... Hmm.

I dunno. I would given even more now to be able to try out other people's bodies. At the very least, be able to look through their eyes, feel what they feel, hear what they hear. See how they think. Then I would understand a lot more, I think. 'cause I'm used to... well, whatever it is I'm used to. I don't know if my social responses, when I have them, are proper because they're naturally learned, or if I've just been watching people.

...I'm killing time. Must finish the stupid homework. Mrf.

Yeah, thing is, I would just use this as an excuse, like Senpai wisely noted -.-;;; which would be bad for me. Although it would be just the tiniest relief to know that my lack of social graces sometimes, is not due to just me being stupid, but to some named thing. Hah. See, it is an excuse! ...but for there to be a reason. Or rather, what sort of excuse isn't just a reason? And what reason isn't really just an excuse? I don't know. Is it... I don't know.

"What is this trait, however small~"
"...in such total detestation..."
"...still I do believe it can last..."
"...truly, deeply..."
"...my whole life long!"

Boo~ nya =^.^=

homework, homework, homework....

...d'cha know that the HPF (High Functioning Autism) article on the wiki cited that "people with HFA can be extreme procrastinators" [source]. Hee hee~ =^.^=v
*smack* that's NOT a good thing, idiot!

..right, enough of the talking-to-yourself. Everyone's going to think you're crazy. Especially with your current away message. "So you've finally flipped, eh, Ben?"

No, no, you're not crazy.

FYI, my parents thought I might have an autistic spectrum disorder when I was younger, but purposely refrained from getting me tested because they thought I'd use it as an excuse. Which is probably true. Cuz I don't like to make eye contact or make phone calls or socialize, and if I knew concretely that I was autistic I'd probably never do it. Which I'm probably not, seeing as that I had a near-perfect 50-50 split on the neurotypical-aspie quiz.

It's a bad habit to get into, trust me. I know now that such mental quirks are no reason not to function like a normal human, and indeed you have to whether you're autistic or not.

Agreed. Although using mild mental disorders as excuses is easy to do... I've never been to a doctor to see if I really have SAD (seasonal depression) or not but it certainly explains my feelings towards November.
