I guess for some reason you've really taken a liking to me. Well here is some more information about me, less sad I promise.

Have you ever heard of Asperger's Syndrome? Well what it basically is, is a high functioning version of Autism. See I'm sure you've heard of that!

Most commons of Asperger's Syndrome are:

Sicial awkwardness / no friendsObsessions / focused on one subjectLack of eye contactSensitivity to noise / touch / feel of clothingSlow to begin talkingOdd speech / extreme logic / very proper speechAnger / aggression / hitting othersCraves routineAppears lost / in own worldFlapping handsCommunication problems or motor skills problemsStimming behaivorTarget of bullying (on a rather dangerous level)
If you haven't quite figured out what I am getting at, I have been diagnosed with Asperger's a few years back. It is considered a Mental Disability. Why? I haven't quite figured that out. Naturally when people find out that someone has any form of mental disabilities, they get looked at differently, not in a good way, not in a "What can I do to help" way, usually "Let's go, he's not worth our time" way. The truth is, people who "suffer" from Aspergers are incredibly creative and have surprising intelligence. James Durbin, who nearly won the most recent American Idol had Asbergers, was there anything wrong with him? He EXCELLED as a singer and a performer (see point two in the symptoms).

I can't go a single day without my lack of communication skills and social awkwardness offending at least ONE person. As I'm sure you've noticed I've been posting pictures that have me in them, it's my way of forcing myself into the outside world, without being there, and giving you guys a face behind the troubled modder.

As I'm sure you have also pieced together, I was bullied MERCILESSLY through my entire life at school (See the music video for Waking the Demon by Bullet for my Valentine), so naturally I DESPISE the schooling system. I can't go to the community college because I hate schools. Which leads me to my next point.

Ever since I was 9, my DREAM was to be a game programmer only now am I actually acting upon it. I plan to move back to Arizona in a couple of years where I can attend Collins College (look it up, it's freaking awesome, if you want to take schooling in film, or gaming, go there!).

HOWEVER! I also want to build a place where families like mine can live for about 6 months (generally enough time to get a job and a first and last deposits on an appartment) See when you live on the streets, people say "Why don't they get a job?" WELLLLL have you EVER FILLED OUT A FREAKING JOB APPLICATION?!!? What is the SECOND THING YOU FILL OUT?! Your ADDRESS!!! If you live on the streets YOU DON'T HAVE ONE! Same with bank accounts, YOU NEED A MAILING ADDRESS TO OPEN A BANK ACCOUNT! WHAT THE HELL. So with this I would provide 4 - 5 small units on a large lot for families to have a mailing address so they can get back on their feet, free food, free shelter. However after the 6 or so months, You would be referred to another care provider, because you're not the only people who need support.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I plan to write a book about the crap that most people don't see, I will dedicate the book to those who have helped me.

Some of which so far: (but are not limited to)
Marcelo Voysest
Konrad (MazQuick)
Dec Tayler
George Nance (ThatBuddhaDude)
And my friends and family
And of course my loving girlfriend Sarah <3

I'm sorry if my posts bore or bother you, I am mainly using them to get over my social uneasiness.
