My Diagnosis
There is something immensely important I need to talk about. It's very personal, but I really want to get it off my chest. I have Asperger's Syndrome.
For those of you who aren't aware, Asperger's a "high functioning" form of Autism. I'm still as intelligent as most people, but there are some areas I struggle in. I have very poor social skills, I may miss obvious communication cues, I may repeat what I say over and over, I may sound monotone and seemingly act without emotion, I even have trouble making eye contact. I may also have an obsessive attachment to certain subjects, even unusual subjects. I'm clumsy, and have trouble with specific motor skills. I'll have one-sided conversations and only talk about subjects I enjoy.
In school I have a hard time focusing on particular subjects. In fact, it's greatly afflicting me in college, where I have difficulty taking time off something I may obsess over and focus instead on homework. I managed in high school, but College is a whole other ba

Literature
Christianity and Free Will
First and foremost, this entry is dedicated to my Lord and Savior.
One of the concerns I've seen about my faith is in the issue of conversion. There is a misunderstanding I would like to clear up here. In one point of view Christians are "perfect" people on high pedestals forcing others to be like them. It rides upon an assumption that Christians have the "Self/Other" binary. While there may be truth in this about some Christians, this is not what the Bible teaches us.
I will start with the account of Genesis and the story of Adam and Eve. It's very well known, but let's take a closer look. God created the Heaven and the Earth, and saw that it was good. He created man (Adam), and made woman (Eve) out of the rib of Adam. This does not make Eve inferior to Adam, or men superior to women. Eve is flesh of Adam's flesh, and they became "one flesh" in their marriage. In that sense, they are partners and equals.
The point I want to bring up is that Adam and Eve were both given a soul, and the

Literature
Verification in History
Before I begin, I will tell you in advance that this is dedicated to my faith in Christianity and in God. I understand there are many who don't share my beliefs, and that's fine. I will not force anyone to convert to my religion. It's only real faith if one chooses to believe of their own accord. There are two reasons I'm writing this. First, I wish to honor God, and second, I want to clear up some misunderstandings circulating around Christianity. Most of what I say here is from what I've learned in Church, I am not a pastor or have any authoritative position in my church. I also believe that the Bible really has only One author, God. Where he reveals His Word through the pens, minds, and hearts, of the people who wrote the books of the Bible.
Now for the message. Many see the Bible as a fable or some fictional nonsense, but that is because most people don't really grasp or understand the Bible and how it works. Take the Old Testament for example. From Genenis to around Esther, the Ol

The Absolutely Worst time to have Lucky 7s in Final Fantasy 7 is in a Magic Pot encounter, just letting that out right now. I was grinding through the North Cave to master my materia, when I realized my set-up gave Barret 777 mp. So with a HP<->MP materia, HP plus (since my set up also made Barret's hp dip below 7500), and a few Hi-potions (which restore 500 hp each), I got Barret's hp to hit 7777. Unfortunately, the next random encounter just happened to be 2 magic pots, and Barret didn't leave any breathing room to throw in a couple Elixers... So yeah, the worst encounter for a Lucky 7's status is with magic pots lol
Sorry for the long wait everyone. I've been on a long hiatus from DeviantArt. The truth is, I've been very focused on College as of late. It's also been a long time since I've submitted any journal entries, so forgive me for that. I will try to be more frequent in my log-ins, but I can't promise anything. I'll also try to reply to comments and notes as I receive them.

I am creative and smart, and drawing comes naturally for me. I am Christian. I love Science-Fiction and Fantasy. I read, draw and daydream a lot. I am also in my second year of College, and I have Aspergers. I have my flaws but, I strive to do my best in what I can do.

This result makes sense to me:

After patting your belly for eating a delicious burger, you hear the doorbell ring. You get up slowly as the burger, fries and milkshake you ate has made you quite tired and heavy. You pass some gas and then burp while making your way to the door. You unlock the door and open it to find a short, Oldman with yellow skin standing there. He wore big, round, thick and frameless glasses. He had white long sleeve shirt with a blue tie, dark green dress pants and a cane in one hand. The old man was looking up at the sky and then pulled out a handkerchief to wipe the sweat from his forehead “Well you’re certainly doing your job today Mr. Sun” said the old man. He then adjusted his glasses but the suns beams on his lenses caused him to suddenly light his dress shirt on fire “Oh no, oh well I might as well say what I came here to do. Um my name is Hans Moleman and I was paid five cents by MobisNewNest to come here and thank you for favoring a piece in his gallery. Have a nice day” said Hans. He then turns around and walks off into the distance while still on fire.
