The Sandlot is on tv. Brings back memories from my youth. I can't believe I don't own this movie. They don't make films of this caliber anymore. It's all superhero bullshit. This iconic kids movie from the 90's has more character development than nearly anything Hollywood produces for adults these days.
Well, my main motive is that I don't think the person in question is an asshole, because he was the only person (besides one of my best friends) who was interested in knowing more about my autism and how it manifests in my daily interactions. That doesn't necessarily mean that I love that person (since I don't agree with how he talks to others), but he's someone I can get along with fairly well, and he has never argued with me.
Everyone at my school are a bunch of idiots. There's no way in hell I'd pay actual money for my class to be able to go to some extremely boring field trip, and there's no way I'll come along, either. I'm able to predict what would happen, it'd be the same old story. People communicating very naturally, having unrealistically fun, while I'm standing in a corner, completely clueless as how to reach out to people, eyes tearing up as I for the millionth realize I don't belong anywhere, that my presence makes no difference at all, wishing I was at home in the safety of my beloved room. Preferably with someone special who'd understand, though that's just a silly dream because no one ever understands. At least I have a lot of money and great grades for little effort.
“There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don't fit into their box are weird. But I'll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance.” - C. JoyBell C.
“People are strange . . .” ― Jim Morrison
“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” - Robert Fulghum, True Love
