Hello everyone! My name is Max, and it's great to chat with people like me! I was diagnosed when I was 4, but never knew I had it until I was 9. Now I am 11, and am about halfway through Grade 6. I just entered this about 15 minutes ago, and am anxious to meet new friends! I come from Ontario, in Canada. I am excited to talk with people who are just like me.

I play the piano, love the arts, and am currently practicing theater arts. I am an orange belt in karate as well.

Hope to hear from everybody soon! :D

Hey Max. It's nice to see another new face. I just started 30 minutes ago around 9:45. Took me forever to get my post in order.

I've had high-functioning autism all my life, so I know how it feels to be strange (I mean, who hasn't felt they didn't fit in with this stuff in them?). I warn you I am an adult, but I'm far from grown up. I'm about 18 and still pretty much struggling with some things I had when I was a kid. I can help a lot if you start posting on some of the same stuff as I do, and I might see you around the forum.

What are some of your other interests? Mine include writing and music (I'm a pretty good drummer but not good at percussion)

Note: This is a response to Campbell1234's post.

I also enjoy all different kinds of music. Calypso, rock, dubstep, you name it, I like it. My favorite artists include Skrillex, The Beatles and Bob Marley.

I am also a big fan of many different video games. I have Steam on my computer. I have downloaded 4 games. I play Team Fortress 2, and my best class is the Heavy, for it is easiest to use his weapons, and he has the highest health. I play a game some of you know, called I Am Bread. Many people would call it stupid, but I rather enjoy it.

I love watching videos on Youtube. My favorite Youtubers include JackSepticEye, Tobuscus, and PewDiePie.

THose are some of my interests. What about you?

Hello bigbossman9. Welcome to Wrong Planet!! :)

As my username suggests, I am also interested in the arts. I am actually going to college for a BA in theatre that was recently ranked fifth in the US for theatre programs. My advice to you would be to never stop perfecting your craft, absorb as much information possible from your teachers, and figure out what your strengths are as a performer that could be marketable. If you have any other questions about the performing arts fell free to ask me them. :)
