You don't seem like you have social anxiety at all. You know, my son is the same way--he hates asking people for favors. It's actually a real problem for him. I never knew that was part of social anxiety so I'll have to think about that some more and talk to him about it. But aren't you happy to do favors for nice people? See, it works both ways. I'm happy to help you out, no problemo.
So I have a million databases and libraries which makes it harder to find I think...so-I found 7 of them for you so far--so send me an email address where you want them sent. My wireless on my laptop keeps going out every few minutes, so I have to keep re-accessing the server each time that happens. I'll get more later/ tomorrow. BTW, Is there one good database you know of for finding the medically sciency stuff that you're interested in?
That's interesting what you said about math affecting your thinking, so you'll have to explain that more. How does one class change the way you think socially?
I like math but I suck at it. My son want(s)(ed) to be an engineer, but doesn't have enough self confidence with the math, so he's now going for a 4 year degree in mechanical drafting, but looking into nanotechnology, but still, no confidence in that either. My Dad was a self-taught engineer--no college degree, and it was in such as specialized type he ended up traveling alot before he died. There's autism in my family, and the side of the family its on is very good mechanically and with math and computers. I somehow turned out the opposite as I mentioned before, I'm mechanically retarded. So you're good at math but don't like how it affects social dynamics. Maybe that is something you could have overcome.
So tell me what type of engineer you were thinking? Let me guess-chemical? What major did you end up pursuing?
Ug, the research I was more productive today than yesterday, but its painful to sort through the mess, especially since I'm not even finished supporting my thesis yet.
K. Send me an address where you want the journal articles to go.
