As I opened a new Firefox tab and navigated to OkCupid, it occurred to me that the time and effort I put into this website is disproportionate...to? with? the return I get on that investment. I have looked through my matches on enough reasonably-spaced occasions to know that the few who are...

During my search for management techniques for perseveration, it occurred to me that I would be one step closer to a solution if I figured out why I was stuck on this particular episode (a conversation gone wrong). A few relatively vague reasons came to mind, but the one that stood out was...
I'm in the college library. I can't read my books because there is constant noise in here. I was going to sit in the Quiet Study room, but there were two people sitting close together in there sharing a computer screen, a clear omen of chattering. Yes, people actually go into the Quiet Study...

I had to take both a shuttle and a bus home from a doctor's appointment today, and the shuttle arrived quite a bit before the bus, so I decided to get some food while I was waiting. While I was in the store, it occurred to me that I should check the time, but I was overly-confident. I sensed...

Yesterday, I finished a 2013 sci-fi movie entitled Her. It's about a guy who ends up in a relationship with his operating system. This was one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen. There was no graphic nudity or sex scenes, but there were scenes dealing with sex and even romance that I could...

I hate emotional people. No, I'm not going to specify precisely what I mean by "emotional people." I can't see how they are as anything but a character flaw. How could it be good or even just neutral to judge so much by how it makes one feel? I hate being bathed in the sappy light of their...

When one of my half-sisters was small, she would communicate ignorance by saying "I just can't know" instead of "I just don't know." That memory just popped into my head as I opened this blank blog entry to post about something that just occurred to me: I just can't care about other people's...

Well, I have no one to talk to about this so I guess I'll just post it here. It's moments like these when I understand the value of having people with shared interests in one's life. JK aren't well known and I'd probably get crickets if I started a thread on the subject, so I won't clutter the...
Why is it that I have so many instances of miscommunication online? Is it just me, or is it common? I've become rather demoralized over it. I've begun to think that online spaces are too impersonal. Maybe they are only too impersonal for certain types of communication, but I'm afraid that type...

I'm reluctant to post stuff in my blog here because I stupidly created my account with the same username as the one I use on another website. I'm quite uneasy with the possibility of someone conducting Internet searches on my username and finding the content I've created here (not that this is a...
I finally went ahead and made that post on the MBTI forum. As expected, my post was misunderstood and nasty things were attributed to me. I am truly a fool. This always happens, yet I always go back and try to participate on non-ASD forums. I have developed a very specific anxiety over this...

Relationships have come to seem cheap to me. First of all, whether or not any given person meets someone compatible is largely a matter of chance. As I decide on which characteristics are most important to me (mostly having to do with shared morals), I see that not many people have those...
