      Friend wants me to join his nerf blaster game with his friends.

        An "alcohol cannon" lobbed a tennis ball half a block away and the concussion rattled the windows--all it was, was soup cans & a condensed-milk can for the carburetor. Aerial shells landed in the neighbors' barbecues. An experiment utilizing the non-compressing properties of water ended up being the time my brother & I broke the sound barrier.
        The shockwave was on video & it was awesome.

        We even practiced special effects cinematography & blew up a scale-model building for an incompleted amateur film--looked very realistic on screen.
        Nerf wars would've been great but we never had many friends. Maybe because my brother & I were loners; or maybe because our backyard was sending up explosions, clouds of smoke, lawnmower noises, and the occasional live chicken.

        The game was at a park and was very hot. Glad I had plenty of hydration. The people were friendly but I had a hard time joining in on the conversations because I don’t keep up with FPS games as well as gaming politics all that much.

      Why is it that when I see others greet people, they get good responses but when I do it, I get bad ones?

        These other people that you see getting the phone details and arranging meet ups....how well do you know them? Unless you are acquainted with them, how do you know that they were just meeting somebody for the first time?

        I know some of them well and others I don’t. The latter just seem to click easily. I saw this a lot at college but when I attempted to socialize, the other person appeared uninterested or even aggravated I was there.

      My mother said I’ll never be self-sufficient but claims she only said “fully self-sufficient”.

        Nice save, on her part. Since nobody is ever "fully self-sufficient."

        Not sure if she's consciously gaslighting you or if she really didn't mean never self-sufficient.

        You can always see a doctor if you are worried but I think Raggamuffin is right.

      The fact the toddler boy at the library liked me months back is proof I would not be an abusive parent.
      1. Raggamuffin
        Raggamuffin
        Not meaning to be blunt - but a moment in a library with a toddler isn't the same as being a parent. I wouldn't say abuse would be a primary concern. But a parent who is prone to worry, catastrophic thinking and depression has the potential to rub off on the child. Also, research would indicate genetics in ASD and other disorders has a part to play.

        It was a combination of low funds and indecision on what I should major in (Getting asked that is thorny for me) as well as not having a good laptop and I don’t have a PC. I use my iPhone mainly because my laptop is junk.

        My miss was less complicated. I just had the wrong date. I would have paid extra, if that had been an option, to go to school that semester. But, it wasn't a fatal error. I was definitely on time to sign up for the next semester.

        Markness.....So, you don't believe in incremental progress, incremental learning? It's all or nothing; perfect achievement or total failure?

        My mind thinks that way. A lot of it has to do with how I was brought up and words like “incremental” were considered “liberal words”. Is it possible to change how my mind processes things?

      I haven’t drawn anything for a long time and my guitar is collecting dust. Life denied me the talent for both things.

        When I was a few years old mom took me to an elderly pediatrician for my medical issues and he said he thought I would be a musician, so she bought a guitar. It rotted in a closet for 15 years before she sold it. I'm more suited to a soldering iron. Lesson: find something you're suited to. It's not always what you expect.

        Practice doesn't necessarily make perfect, but it works better than not trying.
