Trying using USART on Atmega328P (Arduino)
Start simpler. Just make a loop and send a character every second to the PC. Once you get that working add the receive code.   I have no idea why you would use assembler.......

Atmega32 without delay
There are 2 things that people have a hard time with when writing embedded software, time and state. Embedded software almost always controls hardware. That means it needs to know...

Bad habits start early. Don't use delay(), use a millisecond counter, it's not that hard.
