    To be honest, i haven't done anything too outwardly exciting this summer! But it has been good. Missed Asperclick because I have been too busy to even check in as much as I used to. I recently turned 29 and got to celebrate with my husband... Wait I think I haven't told Asperclick that I'm married now! It was a little before summer, in May. Anyway, I have been enjoying married life this summer. We went on a couple small trips within Canada and will be going on another one next weekend. It has been a fun summer so far, just low key and casual as usual.

    Hi, I'm Heather. I'm 18 years old. I've done hours upon hours of research and watching documentaries on ASD and AS. I'm certain that I fall on the spectrum. I've always known I'm different from others in some way. I have sensory issues, stims, trouble communication, bad eye contact, anxiety when things change, ect. I realized I could very possibly be on the spectrum a year in a half or so ago thanks to my endless research, which I'm still doing. I was going to be formally tested for ASD a few months back, but my family didn't have the money. I hopefully will be tested soon.

    Hello. I found an email from this site in my inbox so I thought I'd check back in. Don't remember why I stopped visiting. I do miss using forums, as Facebook is made out of algorithms and I hate it, although that's also where all of my current online friends are so idk what to say about that. Funny story, I dug this up while I was writing a story for a contest. They provide two paragraphs, and we're supposed to add in 48 more. So far I've got....3, I think. Each paragraph has to be at least 40 words. I'm just dashing out backstory about my world and the people in it. It's fun.

    I started writing a pretty cool piece of metal music! It's about 40 Celcius now here which is kinda scary to me. Thankfully, it's surprisingly bearable unlike last year when it was hell(ish).

    Hey

    hello I think maybe technically I've been here long enough to say WELCOME TO THE FORUM, although actually I had a three year hiatus after less than 30 posts, but oh well who's counting any way. Nice to meet you.

    It's always good to see posts - such as on this thread - from members who used to be very active here but have been away. Even if they don't make a regular return it's nice to see news from them. It is perhaps true that as with almost any activity we can reach a point where we feel we don't really have much more to say or our interests move on but it can still be good to pay return visits. I think there are members who would like to be more active but are deterred by the current limited activity on here which means their contributions - whether that be starting a thread or contributing to one - attract limited attention. We then get members checking in less often which can mean they miss a potentially fruitful thread. There aren't any easy answers. Maybe - as Peridot suggested - Asperclick has passed its peak but I think most of us would agree it has still been tremendously useful over the years. It is a community of sorts and there is always a lot of satisfaction in the return of a familiar face, even if it's only a fleeting visit.

    Definitely spending July 4th in Brooklyn. I had so much fun you'd never believe it.

    I've been popping in every so often, but I'm more of a thread contributor than a thread stater. I think everyone from the heyday has grown up, graduated, got a job, stated a family and moved on. It has been many many years now. (It did perk up again in February though, so...)

    That's cool. Hope you enjoy those. I have Sennheiser headphones which are meant for mixing music. They have a "flat frequency response" which enables you to hear what it is you're doing as a musician. No attenuating or boosting of particular frequencies like is in general the case with "consumer" headphones. For listening though I've just got some Sony earbuds… I couldn't enjoy a set of good speakers in my living room as I live in an apartment and it would drive my neighbours crazy also as I often listen to the same song over and over.

    Lol I guess if you look at it that way. But there will always be younger people until the unfortunate but inevitable day this site goes down.

    You're right, it probably isn't. You are far younger than me and can defeat anyone on here. Plus, I'm not very active on the forum anymore.

    Hey

    Well, I always wondered why I couldn't find anyone else with my predicament. So randomly yesterday after being hounded by my mom for other reasons (actually not related to my ASD) I got into deep thought, "why is she uprate right now? Is it that time of the month? No it was only briefly after she had a couple drinks, so is she stressed? Yes probably she's had a tooth ache and root canal earlier today? But is that all? ... " Then started to think to myself as I have been finding myself do more recently, "why am I analyzing people like this? Does it ever help? Do normal people do this (NTs as I've seen them called on here) or is this part of having Asperger's? Even for an aspie is that normal?" And so I decided to look for a forum. And here I am. I'll mention I'm 22, going to school to be a mechanical engineer. I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was in 8th grade (2011) but before had been diagnosed with ADD which is a common misdiagnosis so I've been told. Thankfully my mom is fairly understanding and brother is like a good friend but my dad never really could understand why I was different, although now I think he knows I'm probably going to be, if not already, smarter/wiser than him even if he doesn't say it. If you couldn't tell by now I think I'm the type to go into a lot of detail when explaining things so I sometimes catch myself and wrap it up or cut it off, like now.

    Hey

    I opted out a while ago but I think it should be on @Willow's website, you pay $1 from what I recall to utilize it. You can even make meetups and see when most people can make it or do it at different times. I don't know if she still has it open, she should, you should check her website. I stopped utilizing it because at the time I was using it, Willow was having issues and she was barely there. Like, she'd be late to it or had technical issues and wouldn't be there (she was struggling with depression) so I opted out of it once I became less active on the forum. She'd create meet ups too I don't know if they're still around since I'm not a paid member of this forum and therefore can't see if there are any but another paid member can maybe tell you. Paid members are in orange.

    It's from the movie Ghost Rider which I like. It just happened to be on my computer when I made my profile so that's mainly why I chose it

    @Ace What's your profile picture about?

    Yes, it used to not be like that but that's how it works now. No problem, I usually give out a lot of likes, mostly after I finish reading a post.

    Hey

    Also it might be worth mentioning I usually have a positive outlook on Asperger's. I usually think to myself that it's more of a gift than a problem. I didn't used to think that way but now I see other NTs lives and the way they think and sometimes think how weirdly caught up in seemingly pointless things they are, and odd that a lot of people like drama which causes stress. I am unique (although less so around here) and I'm glad that I'm different. Because if everyone were the same, life would not progress and would be so boring.

    Honestly my opinion is that she just isn't worth it, obviously she has a major lack of education and a small mind. I've had the same problems before, people abandoning me and treating me differently all because of my asperger's, its one of the reasons I stopped telling people. Though in my experience I have found some others I have told about it who are very understanding and awesome and you will too. You'll find some awesome people worth your friendship ❤

    Hey guys I'm new here and thought posting here would he a great place to start. Anyway I am 23 and I have asperger's, though personally I feel no different to anyone else,I do have some characteristics that could be considered "weird". I feel a lot of people don't understand asperger's and I often get frustrated with the lack of understanding from others. After finding this forum I thought it would be great to sign up and well here I am . I am very open so if you have any questions on my asperger's or even just on myself, feel free to ask.

    Wether we like it or not, progress is inevitable. Yes, there are certain downsides to it, but if you look at general picture - there are far more benefits than drawbacks. Medicine, education, social support. People complain a lot about these spheres, but if you take a look at statistics, hard facts, you'll see that changes are for the better. Plus, if you don't like something that exists - you can always ignore it. It doesn't work the other way around (if cars don't exist - you can't drive one anyway).

    Pizza on a camp fire? Wow. lol Where I am, camp fires aren't really "a thing". So I can't really say I've got much experience… There's this famous woman called ASMR Darling who's into camp fires. She likes socialising around them. I wouldn't mind socialising with ASMR Darling at a camp fire. Shoot the breeze… Drink some Dr. Pepper which is her favorite soda. I guess that's my favorite camp fire fantasy. Or at least that's how it starts. I couldn't post the whole thing on here because there's kids around. hehe

    With ASD you tend to get these "down" periods and feelings of retreating or even feel like not belonging. It happens to most members. Activity is now kind of low again and that too will discourage people to post as you wonder if anyone will be left to browse. I still think running an ASD related forum is kind of hard as we aren't that great at socialising and may get mood swings.

    I hate to say it, but I no longer feel welcome here. There are other places I can go where making the effort to post is much more rewarding and likely to be appreciated.

    I have taken breaks before, @Nesf has decided not to use this site claiming that it is oriented around live streams that are not her thing. I don't know about @Miss Chief as she too hasn't been here for quite some time, as far as I can see.

    People who create drama, and drama in general. (I mean as in, unnecessary grief and stress and arguing etc., not the genre )
