    I'm not shy, I'm very talkative on first impressions, I just want to be myself and not be anyone else because they will get to know a fake person not the real Kirsty. Thanks for the advice so far guys. xxx

    This is what I'm talking about, cruel people that will exclude you from their cliques, or bully you out for being different.
    Yes.
    Keep away from us.
    We are not nice people.

    Although different is good.

    1) Your location is North London, your college sounds like a big college, so i assumed woodhouse

    2) sorry for my stupidity, but what is AS?

    OMG your a chemist! :wavey:
    What the **** !! You appiled to the exact same unis as me!!


    UCAS 2011

    Msci Chemistry
    Oxford (College: ?)
    Imperial
    UCL
    Durham (College: ?)
    Warwick

    didn't know wh was so well known.

    AS-Asperger's syndrome - billy no mates syndrome - autism spectrum disorder. Makes you weird.

    yeah i'm a chemist too. Go to UCL. it's amazing!

    You said you "did" have AS, past tense, meaning you used to have it which implies you were cured. Or was it just a mix up? dont worry i'm not a grammar nazi

    It may of taken me a while to get friends, but AS shouldn't stop you from making friends. I don't mind having it, I don't let it bother me.

    One of my friends has it, and I didn't even know until others told me he had it.

    Opps...! No i've never had it, I thought you meant 'AS' as in the 'AS' year at college. That's why I was getting confused when you said had I been cured! Stupid me :p:

    And no I'm not troilling :laugh:

    Anyway; I'm really scared about the whole thing, I know I should be excited about starting college and not having to go back to my old crappy secondary for another year, which I'm glad about tho'. It's a scary thought, I do know a few of my friends are going to the same college but wont be in any of my classes and I'd only see them at lunch and break times depending on their timetable. I'm mad in every way, and known for intimating people a lot, basically people will think 'wow she's a mad one' and walks away. I don't want to be a loner, do you think people like mad, crazy and not so funny people like me? I'm terrible at jokes and what not but I still pull of jokes. Not forgetting I have Autism which means my social skills are useless.

    Any advice would be much grateful.

    nah, it's possible if you're a girl seeing as girls are more friendly, and if all else fails you'll have plenty of male friends so long as you look good. But a male with AS, no hope. Note how every poster here with AS that is being positive is female....
    Note this: For the first 13 years of my life, I never knew I had it. Boys are lucky because they get diagnosed earlier than girls. When I way 13 I got worried but at the same time my friends knew me as what I am, so being told I have AS shouldn't change me. I knew my Social skills was useless, but I worked at it.

    Okay this has gone into an debate about Autism, please.. Whoever started that, don't take this the wrong way but why??? Also S.R I'm going to an good college in my town, my older cousins went to this and said it's a very good college and after meeting the staff at the enrollment day they are very lovely people, so I'm not risking going to a **** college. I'm happy about this college, but kinda scared about making more friends.

    yeah travelling from north to north west is a pain, seeing as all the roads and tube lines radiate out from central london. if I wanna go Harrow for instance, I gotta go all the way into central london then get metropolitan line out to north west london, and the bus is even worse, winding around all those back roads. sorry a rant but rrgh.

    4 weeks? taster course?

    Lol his name comes up on TSR a lot. Yeah he's pretty funny. On the way back from my diagnosis at Gt Ormond St I decided to show my mum around UCL and he very kindly gave me an extra tour of the place. He said something that had me in stitches lol but can't remember. Something about getting killed by the X ray diffractometer. he even lent me a (fun, not textbook) chem book to read over the summer. So I've had 3 tours of the chem building, open day, interview, and the extra tour. And I still don't know where anywhere inside is lol.

    Well whatever. I'm dreading uni.
    Are you dismissing my positivity just because you've had a hard time with college and school? I'm sorry but it seems like it to me.
