"People need to stop feeling guilty about being Introverts; Introverts have driven the world forward..."



“People need to stop feeling guilty about being Introverts; Introverts have driven the world forward from their desks, studies, typewriters, laboratories and computers. So it’s funny that I end up pretending to be extrovert for days upon days, just to please my friends. All the people we admire in soceity are Introverts; so why doesn’t society ever reflect this?”

Amazingly Stim-tastic Time-Lapse Photography Vids



I just had to share these videos. I absolutely love what they do to my brain. They give me goosebumps. I zone out and find myself rocking in my chair, unblinking, hardly watching anything in particular onscreen. And it feels great. If videos could be a drug, these certainly are for me. Check them out!



This second one is the first one I saw, and I love it just as much. My only complaint is that the music editing is a bit jarring. But I already knew the track, and it’s one of my favorite songs by Lamb, so I was immediately drawn in.



I could watch both of these several times a day. Is that wrong? Heh, who cares?!

Well, I was planning on touching the wires. So should I just pay the fine right now? ‘Cause I’m gonna touch ‘em.

"Awesism"



I have a friend whose daughter is autistic. To make things feel more positive, he tells her to call it “Awesism.” I absolutely love this, and thought I’d share it. Contrary to popular belief, there are actually some positive things about having an ASD (autism spectrum disorder), and sometimes they can be… well, awesome. I don’t have the time or energy to go into all the reasons why this is so, and I’m not even sure that my descriptions would even do it justice. But suffice it to say that there are some things that some autistics will end up being better at than a neurotypical person, simply because of the way their brain works.


And also there are things that will make an autistic/aspie excited or happy that would seem out of the ordinary for a neurotypical person. Little things like patterns, spinning objects, or lights that just seem to trigger some kind of pleasure response in the brain, and it’s just great. I like watching things spin. Ceiling fans are wonderful. Gyroscopes? Fabulous. I spin my Rubik’s Cube in my hand or on a table, because I just love how it looks. I spin CDs between my fingers anytime I get a disk in my hands. I love the Tilt-a-Whirl ride at carnivals. I have a habit of spinning in my office chair at work. That last one would be considered more of a stimming behavior, but you get the idea. Those things make my brain smile. It’s calming. It feels awesome. It’s Awesism.


Autism is the reason I tend to become obsessed about certain subjects and learn as much as I can about them (knowledge is power). It’s the reason why some of my solutions to problems can tend to differ from the norm. It’s the reason I can solve and unsolve my Rubik’s Cube over and over and never get bored. It’s my brain. It’s my world. It’s Awesism.

My everything bagel seems to be missing something. Actually, it’s missing quite a bit, given its name. They shouldn’t call it an “everything” bagel. They should call it an “Aboswabos” bagel. It’s an acronym. A Bunch of Stuff Without a Bunch of Stuff. Too long? How about having an “Emae” bagel? Everything Minus Almost Everything. My breakfast consisted of a cup of tea and an emae bagel. Happy Monday.

Your Aspie score: 147 of 200

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 55 of 200

You are very likely an Aspie


Since everyone seems to be posting their Aspie Quiz results, I thought I’d join in and post mine. Managed to dig them up, after over a year. LOL

I get that a lot. “Asperger’s Syndrome? I don’t see that in you.” That’s because I’m 35 now, and I’ve learned to hide (or at least compensate for) much of my “aspiness” over the years. It wasn’t always as easy as I make it look, and some things still aren’t easy. It’s just that my outward reactions to things aren’t nearly identical to my inward reactions to things all the time. And I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m probably not actually looking you in the eye when you talk to me. I watch lips, to make sure I’m not missing anything being said. Take that.

A Good Day



Be proud of me. I went outside TWICE this weekend to read. All by myself. Just to sit and be in the sun. I never spend time outside. I hear it’s good for me. 20 minutes was all I could muster, with beer as my timer. As soon as my bottle was empty, I went inside. Maybe I’ll do another 20 later. ;) Need more beer…

I should stay home for the rest of the day...



…because while driving today I had two random bouts of confusion. In both, I was driving down familiar roads… then suddenly had no friggin’ idea where I was! Took me close to a full minute both times to realize where I was and where I was going. I don’t like what my brain is doing today. I think an early glass of wine and some gaming might straighten me out a bit.


Peace OutSide.
