Not Getting to Procrastinating

Hello readers. I understand it’s been a very long time since you’ve heard from me on this particular blog. I’m going to be restarting to write more material for this blog. I’ll be posting a new entry at least once a week and I hope others will read it and contribute so that it feels more like a discussion among friends than a lecture.

Allow me to explain. Like most of you reading this, I’m an aspie, and people with autism have intense interest in a variety of different subjects; I’m like that too. This has some pros and cons to it. It lets me focus on certain things while tuning others out. This helps when I’m feeling stressed out but it also keeps me from doing important projects like this one. In short, often the way I focus doesn’t allow me to do everything I’d like to do on a day to day basis.

Here, we’ll be talking about our favorite obsessions. Some of mine include watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy on weeknights, playing Dungeons and Dragons, coming up with ideas for movies for when I’m a director, listening to old radio shows or creepy online stories or the podcast Lore, doing aerobics with Sweatin’ to the Oldies, reading when I can, and squeezing in some time watching Thomas the Tank Engine when I can. I do have more but I don’t want to bore you with talking about me constantly and listing the rest would most likely take all day.

So as you can see, there are a lot of things I do like to do but I never have enough time to do them when I want. A lot of them are stuff I tend to do whenever I feel stressed out about something, so it’s also hard to pick out what it is among them that I want to do, which can potentially create more stress, but I do find ways to deal with it by simply focusing on one of those things at a time, not always in the same order. Other times, I feel like I might want to do something else when I feel stressed out. It just depends on the mood I’m in at that moment.

I want to hear from you. What are some things you like to do when you feel stressed? I want you to feel like you’re important because you’re the reader and your opinion matters. Post what you like to do below. I have a t-shirt that says “introverts unite (separately, in your own homes)”. This is what I want to feel like is going on here. So, read and comment, because you matter as the reader.
