Sorry, I guess mine is a little bit overdue...

What is your first name? Lisa

Age: 27

Location: California

Hobbies and Interests: Music, computers, animals, graphic design, and Stargate.

Why are you here? I've stuck around because I'm probably an aspie. Turns out I sure can identify with a ton of stuff on this site. Thanks Alex and everyone for (in a way) letting me know that I'm not alone. I'm tired of 'pretending to be normal'.

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): So far, major depression and anxiety, about 1995 I think. Going to further discuss AS with my psychologist this week.

Favorite subjects: In college I majored in music, then graphic design, then criminology... but I don't have a degree in anything.

Year/Grade: Gave up on college in 2002 after 5 years on and off. Getting As wasn't hard but school just turns me off to almost everything I've been interested in. My fault I suppose. I try to forget my experiences with high school.

Favorite music: Instrumentals (like soundtracks) and classic rock, I guess. The only genres I don't care for are rap and opera.

Books: Michael Crichton sure can write 'em. My favorite comic strip is Get Fuzzy.

TV shows/Movies: Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. I like Pixar movies, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Instrument: Mostly piano (by ear since age 3), also drums but I haven't played them in years, and a little bit of guitar.

Do you like sports? Not really a huge fan of anything in particular, but I don't dislike sports.

Family: Mom, dad, one younger brother.

Clothing: Must have jeans and a comfortable shirt. I own one pair of shoes.

How did you find this website? Google. I was actually looking up stuff on the fear of driving when I found these forums. Then I wondered what Asperger's was...

Job: Pretty much unemployed at the moment.

Plans for the future? Bottom line... I want to be more independent.

Any comments? "Hi, I'm new."

What is your first name? John

Age: 30 (but I still get carded at the movie theatre if that tells you anything :oops: )

Location: Alabama (originally from Charlotte NC)

Hobbies and Interests: Writing, reading, running, kung fu and tai chi, strategy games, helping people.

Why are you here? I came here to find more people like me.

When were you diagnosed? Still waiting on official word, but it's kinda obvious to everyone around me.

Favorite subjects: Any of the hobbies listed above, human interaction, comic books, animals and their behavior, genetics (and some biology in general), religion and religions throughout history, government in all of it's structure (the administrative side, economics), law enforcement and criminology.

Year/Grade: I have a masters degree in public administration, a bachlors degree in forensics and an associates degree in law enforcement.

Favorite music: Rock (modern, classic, metal, alternative, indy -- most of it), classical music, anything new or underground and just about everything else as long as it isn't rap or country.

Books: Atlas Shrugged and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein are my personal favorites, but I like many more.

TV shows/Movies: The Road to Perdition, The Shawshank Redemption, Unforgiven, The Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy, plus many many more -- I'm a huge movie freak. The only TV I like on the other hand is adult swim.

Instrument: Trumpet (it's been many years ago, however -- I don't think I could play it now if I had to)

Do you like sports? North American Pro and (some) College Football.

Family: Single (and happy that my family lives three states away :D )

Clothing: I'm a teeshirt and jeans kinda guy, but even in that I like good quality. I have been known to sport other sorts of looks.

How did you find this website? Someone from my AS group pointed me here.

Job: That's not public knowledge (because I have a stalker)

Plans for the future? This whole AS thing kinda hangs some things for me. Part of what I'm doing now is trying to figure out what I'm going to do next.

Any comments? I really like people. All kinds. I think it's all the different combinations of traits, which carries over to my writing (I'm a big character oriented writer). I just love people and find them so terribly facinating and I'll always help anyone who asks, even the ones who hate me or would wrong me.

What is your first name? Ian

Age: 21

Location: Alabama (Huntsville area)

Hobbies and Interests:
Hobbies:
Reading;
Writing;
Marksmanship;
Model-kits (sci-fi);
Weight-lifting;
Movies;
Anime;
Languages (Japanese, conversational; Mandarin, just starting out; American Sign Language, also starting out; some written Latin; a little Francais for the ladies ^_--; and bits and pieces of several others.)

Interests:
Economics (Austrian), Geopolitics, Libertarian Minarchism/Anarchocapitalism, investing, history, literature, physics.

Why are you here? I am certain that I have Asperger's, because when I "discovered" it a few weeks ago, it's all I could read and talk about because it made my entire life make sense!

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): I'm looking for a doc who has some experience with adults on the spectrum.

Favorite subjects: English, Business, History, Foreign Language

Year/Grade: Sophomore (College)

Favorite music: Too much to list!

Books: The Bible, The Lord of the Rings (Tolkien), The Art of War (Sun Tzu), The Complete Works of Tacitus (Gaius Cornelius Tacitus), Norstrilia (Cordwainer Smith), A Brief History of Time (Stephen Hawking), Catcher in the Rye (Salinger), Crime and Punishment (Dostoyevsky)... If it's historical, scientific, philosophical, science fiction, or true literature, I'll read it.

TV shows/Movies: I don't watch much TV, but I like House, 24, Prisonbreak, Simpsons, and South Park. As for movies, I like science fiction/fantasy, horror, comedy, and black-and-white films.

Instrument: I used to play the violin, and I'm considering taking it back up (I have one, it's just hardly used).

Do you like sports? If so, which one? I live in Alabama, where Football is an organized religion. I watch a couple of games a year, but I'm not a fanatic and I don't play. I lift weights, but not competitively. I also enjoy marksmanship, but I'm not good enough to compete. :)

Family: Best parents ever, an older sister (27), two younger brothers (19 and 15). My middle brother has traits on the spectrum more pronounced than mine, but I haven't talked to him about it yet.

Clothing: Jeans and t-shirts, but I can be fashionable when I want to be. I like the film-noir look, and 60s men's as well.

How did you find this website? O.A.S.I.S. link.

Job: My sister and I co-own and operate an online and convention-based retail concern specializing in printed t-shirts, beanies/hats, and accessories in the geek/anime/sci-fi fashion niche.

Plans for the future? Long term relationship/marriage, finish all these books I'm trying to write, get an MBA, and live life to the fullest!

Any comments? Well, since finding out about AS about a month ago, I've really found a number of websites and books helpful. My ex-girlfriend is an aspie (and proud!), and when I talked to her about my "discovery" she had a duh-moment, and told me I had neon signs flashing aspie all around me, but she thought I was just a peculiar NT. I decided that as I go about getting diagnosed professionally, and seek to interact better with NTs, I should get to know other people on the spectrum as well, which is why I'm here! I'm from Alabama but you wouldn't know it from talking to me ^_--. If you're from the Alabama/Tennessee area, get in touch and we should meet up somewhere! I travel across the U.S. quite a bit on business, too, so maybe my schedule will put me somewhere where lunch might be in order. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to getting to know you!
