This blog is where I talk about my life with Aspergers Syndrome in order to help myself deal with an incredibly overactive brain and to reach out to others with it to let them know that it does get better and you are not alone.
It’s also where I document what I’m doing at the moment in an effort to keep myself focused in a world where there is an increasing amount of distractions from achieving anything. I take comfort in the fact that being a geek and introverted is now lauded as a good thing and it’s not downgraded to the fact that you are an incomplete person simply as you don’t wish to socialize every minute of the day.
Currently, my interests are neuroscience, psychology, learning the Greek language and linguistics in general, study hacks and philosophy. I always like to learn new things as I have an enquiring mind being a logical scientist but also I have a deep desire to connect with my fellow humans and I’m endeavouring to learn Greek for this purpose. It is a professional goal as well as a personal one. There quite lofty goals but we do need to push ourselves out of out comfort zone to achieve growth in our lives.
People I admire at the moment are Cal Newport, Tim Ferriss, Thomas Frank, Elon Musk, Luis Von Ahn, Walter O Brien. Yes, there pretty much all computer scientists but that’s what I am. I like the fact that they have designed products and systems that improve the world using a combination of innovation, common sense and knowledge. Nothing wrong with being unique and not following the crowd. We have developed sufficiently with technology now to not need to be stuck behind a desk for 40 hours a week grinding away at the latest project.
