I've been offline for a long time... many reasons, mostly personal, a few computer related... but anyone feel like filling me in on the recent goings on around here? anyone need anything? Can I help? As long as it doesn't require monetary help, I'm there for ya. Sorry I haven't been around here for so long. I've been trying to recruit around Richard's new school... not sure if any of the new faces (active or inactive) are from there. Any way, regardless, I'd love to chat with anyone. I feel lonely and in need of interaction these days.

Yes, Kelley, please read my post about me needing help. That would be helpful.

Honestly, Chris... I dunno. At their age, I can't say I had too much trouble, other than being kind of an outsider for being kinda "weird," I was never in trouble because I was a loner, never talked much, if ever and kept to my own business for the most part. In fact, in elementary school, I earned student of the year once and student of the week often. Student of the month in sixth grade, but my temper started getting the better of me after that I think... at least with my friends and those I knew. I'd get close and then push them away by my "weirdness" if that's what you want to call it. I got suspended once in high school, after school detention once and Saturday school once. Not too terrible in the grand scheme of things, but I also managed to keep my grades up with an honors and AP load, along with a full time job starting at the age of 15 (and much babysitting before and after that beginning at age 12). I think I kept myself out of trouble mostly by keeping busy.

I think it's wonderful they've chosen you to be their advocate or what have you... it seems better to help counsel the child rather than instruct the adult as the adults have a harder time believing the "truth" as it were than the kids. The kids can at least learn to alter their behavior in ways that can help keep them out of trouble and out of the principal's office. Obviously, you have learned how best to control certain urges and tendencies to keep you out of trouble and you can help them learn that as well. Will it work over night? No, likely not... I'm sure you'll need lots of time in with these kids. But you will see results, that much I guarantee you.

I also agree with Kim's ideas on your second posting, she made a great listing of ideas. Your school is obviously not privy to Autism or its spectrum so much, so you should help the students and any other person in the school to become aware by beginning a program if they will allow it, and they should. I do so hope they let you.

4Hi!  Long time no see. Empty Re: Hi! Long time no see. on Wed Dec 16, 2009 4:28 am

man of a million names


Well, I'd like some input on ideas. These kids don't stay out of trouble. In fact, they tend to stay in it, because they're frustrated and don't know what to do. So some ideas would be helpful. Perhaps you could mention this at some of the meetings the AAA holds. Make sure you have the right info if your going to do it though. Otherwise, I'm likely to get helpful ideas for the wrong problem.

The meetings are on hold until after the new year per kim, and have been since about Halloween... but as soon as we get them going again, we will definitely bring it back up again. Unfortunately, the attendance level has been miserable lately. We need to get out and advertise more. I think we need to find a non asperger person to do the marketing for this group. lol... Kim and I don't seem to handle that part of it very well. Wink But again, we'll definitely talk to people about it when we can, and no worries about getting the info right... we'll print out your issue and do it that way so we get it right.

Thank you. It would be a big help. So would you happen to have any immediate ideas of a unique variety?

No Prob. As far as immediate ideas of unique variety? Not my style, being imaginationally challenged as I am. Sorry... I wish I could help you more, but if something pops into my head I'll definitely let you know.

man of a million names


What do you mean "imaginationally challenged?" You're not imaginationally challenged. Just about any idea would work. It doesn't have to be unique, I was just saying that. I'm open to anything.

And where's Kim? I could use some help from her.

lol... As I said more or less in FB, Kim, I should pin my effing number to your shirt. Rolling Eyes Razz it's in your FB inbox now, but I'll try calling you since I know you prefer it that way. As far as Chris goes, he's still searching for answers to his school problem.

And Chris, I was just being more or less sarcastic about "imaginationally challenged," I mean I have very little imagination, but I guess what I was trying to say is that when it comes to trying to think of "unique" ideas, it's not really my forte. I'm trying to help you out here, I'm just slow with the answers.

As I mentioned in one of my replies before, keeping them busy with after school activities might help. Or perhaps giving them specific short term goals in school that will help them succeed in the long term... kind of like stay out of trouble for this amount of time and get this reward. Even if it's a day to start, then lengthen it bit by bit. I dunno. That's about all I got.

11Hi!  Long time no see. Empty Re: Hi! Long time no see. on Sun Dec 20, 2009 8:09 am

man of a million names


Well, really anything would work. If you could just start sprouting ideas, I'd write them all down, and then sort them into most helpful. But lets see if Kim can do anything with this.

Oh, and is anybody having a snowy Christmas this year? I am. My feet are numb, and and my fingertips are on the verge of that plain. Much as I enjoy snow visually, I could do without the temperature.

Hah. Snow. You're asking us Floridians if we're having snow? bwahahahahahahhahaha........ I think the coldest it's gotten is into the fifties. You make me laugh with your snow. Although, I do love me some snow. The cold does not bother me a bit. I rather enjoy it, and miss it terribly from when I lived in northern Indiana.

However I hope what little help I have offered you has helped... little as it may have been, it's about all I can offer at this time. I know Kim has given you quite a bit on the other page to work with, and much better ideas than I. I think that's where you should start.
