What is your current obsession? Mine is silver clay! I can't stop thinking about it, I love the stuff. I'm doing a Saturday course in it at the moment and I love every second I'm also obsessing over Game of Thrones, Dexter and Breaking Bad! So what is everyone obsessed with currently?
Is anyone relieved when an obsession calms down a little? I like being obsessed with things, I really like that feeling of researching and being so focused on something that nothing else matters. It make sme feel like I have a purpose, like I am good for something... But, it is a major relief when I realise that I don't think about it 24/7 anymore because being obsessive is pretty exhausting and completely distracting from everything else. If it is a practical hobby, I also spend a lot of money on it (a lot) so in that respect it's nice too because I can start saving money again
Does anyone have an obsession with boxes? I used to get so excited if I was given a box, large or small, to play with. If it was a large cardboard box, I used to draw all over it, sit in it, cut eye holes in the side, etc. It was like a secret hide away that I felt really secure in. I would usually have the flaps closed too so it was nice and dark and I would take books and toys in it. Thinking about it, it was probably the equivalent of homemade sensory room I also had an obsession with small boxes to keep stuff in. I'm still like that now. When I went to Madagascar, I was given a box made of layered rosewood. It's beautiful, and I use it for little keepsakes. When I was a kid though, I used to have loads of boxes for jewellery and stuff. In the shops if I saw another one my mum used to be like "You have loads of boxes!" I wondered if it was a sensory thing for big boxes and a categorising thing for the small boxes that draws us aspies to them. Any thoughts?
