I don't have great coordination, but I still play the violin. Holding it correctly and having proper posture are the things I struggle with most, though. I don't have any talent either, I just play it a lot :D . Don't be too hard on yourself.





Thanks, that makes me feel better. I remember I struggled with holding the violin correctly & posture too. Another problem I had was reading the music & trying to play the notes correctly. I just did not understand it well. It was very confusing for me. It was fun at first, but I would get frustrated because I could play it well.


That's what happened to me with all the other instruments I ever tried to play :D . Playing an instrument is really hard, so I don't blame you at all for struggling! What other things do you like to do? Do you have any hobbies, or a "special interest?" :D

Yes, playing an instrument seemed like fun before I tried to learn how to play it. One other issue I had was that I was more interested in doing other things that I like better instead of practicing my instruments. I have other hobbies & "special interests" too. I can not sing or play any music or instruments, but I really like listening to music. I like to collect music & listen to it. I like to collect music & different formats of music like records, compact discs, and 8-track tapes. I also like to collect other things like coins, music, movies, books, electronics, and maps. I also really like cars. I also have a fascination with Asperger's syndrome & wrong planet. I like to spend a lot of my free time on the Internet reading about my "special interests."

I played the clarinet in elementary school, but I couldn't figure out how to get the higher notes without squeaking, so I stopped. I can play the piano moderately well, and I'm learning how to play the guitar.

No tried to play percussion in band class...and later on attempted to give learning bass guitar a try. But I suck...so I leave instrument playing to my favorite bands and people who are good at it. I might be able to sing a little, I try to sing with music I like sometimes because I get the urge but wouldn't say I am great at it lol.

I do enjoy some parts of school, though. What are your favorite movies and books?

Yes, I also understand about doing school work; I never liked it either. Some of my favourite movies are Disney movies, the Star Wars series, the Star Trek series, the Marvel super hero series, the Lord Of The Rings series, Carrie, The Shining, Jaws, Mr. Holland's Opus, Mask, Men & Chicken, Grease, The Breakfast Club, The Ring, Rings, Shaft, and King Kong.



I also like to read too. When I was a kid, my favourite books were the poetry books by Shel Silverstein. They were called Where The Sidewalk Ends, A Light In The Attic, and Falling Up. I also liked another kids' book he wrote called The Giving Tree. I actually used to know another author from Chicago called Tamara Amanda Bryant; we used to E mail each other & talk on the telephone. She wrote books of poetry & prose. Her books were called Stumbling & Mumbling, Conviction, Electric Cats, and Bitter Teachings. I have always been interested in maps, so I like to read atlases. I usually prefer nonfiction instead of fiction, but sometimes I like fiction also. I also like to read biographies too.

Cool! My brother saw The Ring and he was terrified for weeks :lol: . I have read Shel Silverstein before too. I used to read The Giving Tree as well as some of his poetry. I also prefer nonfiction, and I was hyperlexic when I was little. Sometimes I enjoy fiction- especially if it's about autism/Asperger's. I recently read a fiction book called Reign Rain. It was pretty good.

What kind of cars do you like?

I liked The Ring too. I have also seen the original Japanese movie called Ringu. I like horror movies, but I do not really get terrified by them. I also saw the sequel called Rings back in February.



I also like some fiction too, and I like some fiction about autism & Asperger's syndrome. I have found that some of it is not always accurate, mostly stereotypes about what society thinks autism is like.



I like all different kinds of cars, but I think me favourite car is probably Volvo, which is the kind of car that I drive. I also really like some of the older Honda cars. My Dad drives a big GMC Duramax Diesel pickup truck, so I like large Diesel pickup trucks too. Porsche is also a fun car that I like. I am also interested in some obscure, scarce cars which had short production runs. One man that I work with sometimes takes me to classic car shows on weekends, and they are fun to attend. I also like to read magazines about cars, and read about them online.

I need to see that movie! Didn't know there was a sequel.

Yeah, a lot of that kind of fiction is just stereotypes, but I still enjoy it anyway. This isn't about autism, but have you read "Out of My Mind" yet? It's about a girl who has cerebral palsy which prevents her from walking and talking. It's pretty good.

Wow! My favorite YouTuber's friend also loves cars. His name is iballisticsquid. What color car is your Volvo? It's cool how you get to go to car shows on the weekends sometimes. :D

What kind of cars do you like?





I liked The Ring too. I have also seen the original Japanese movie called Ringu. I like horror movies, but I do not really get terrified by them. I also saw the sequel called Rings back in February.



I also like some fiction too, and I like some fiction about autism & Asperger's syndrome. I have found that some of it is not always accurate, mostly stereotypes about what society thinks autism is like.



I like all different kinds of cars, but I think me favourite car is probably Volvo, which is the kind of car that I drive. I also really like some of the older Honda cars. My Dad drives a big GMC Duramax Diesel pickup truck, so I like large Diesel pickup trucks too. Porsche is also a fun car that I like. I am also interested in some obscure, scarce cars which had short production runs. One man that I work with sometimes takes me to classic car shows on weekends, and they are fun to attend. I also like to read magazines about cars, and read about them online.


I need to see that movie! Didn't know there was a sequel.

Yeah, a lot of that kind of fiction is just stereotypes, but I still enjoy it anyway. This isn't about autism, but have you read "Out of My Mind" yet? It's about a girl who has cerebral palsy which prevents her from walking and talking. It's pretty good.

Wow! My favorite YouTuber's friend also loves cars. His name is iballisticsquid. What color car is your Volvo? It's cool how you get to go to car shows on the weekends sometimes. :D





Yeah, I liked the sequel. I saw it back in February at a drive-in near me, and it was just released on DVD a few weeks ago. It is a scary movie!



I have never read Out Of My Mind. It sounds like a good book. I work at a library, and I am just about to leave for work, so I will look for it when I am there today.



My Volvo is white with a brown leather interior. I have owned it since 2006, and it has been a good car. I will look iballisticsquid on You Tube later today & watch some of his videos. I like going to the car shows on the weekends. There are interesting cars there, and they are fun to watch & look at.

I voted "no" for this poll. I tried to learn how to play the saxophone & the violin back when I was a teenager, but I had no talent & was not very good at either instrument, so I quit the lessons. I did not take the lessons for very long. A friend recently told me that you need really good coordination to play the violin, so maybe it was part of my problem.


I don't have great coordination, but I still play the violin. Holding it correctly and having proper posture are the things I struggle with most, though. I don't have any talent either, I just play it a lot :D . Don't be too hard on yourself.





Thanks, that makes me feel better. I remember I struggled with holding the violin correctly & posture too. Another problem I had was reading the music & trying to play the notes correctly. I just did not understand it well. It was very confusing for me. It was fun at first, but I would get frustrated because I could play it well.


That's what happened to me with all the other instruments I ever tried to play :D . Playing an instrument is really hard, so I don't blame you at all for struggling! What other things do you like to do? Do you have any hobbies, or a "special interest?" :D





Yes, playing an instrument seemed like fun before I tried to learn how to play it. One other issue I had was that I was more interested in doing other things that I like better instead of practicing my instruments. I have other hobbies & "special interests" too. I can not sing or play any music or instruments, but I really like listening to music. I like to collect music & listen to it. I like to collect music & different formats of music like records, compact discs, and 8-track tapes. I also like to collect other things like coins, music, movies, books, electronics, and maps. I also really like cars. I also have a fascination with Asperger's syndrome & wrong planet. I like to spend a lot of my free time on the Internet reading about my "special interests."


I love reading about my special interests on the internet as well :D . I love listening to music too. It's very calming for me. I am a lot more interested in doing other things than school, so I can relate to what you said about being more interested in other things than what you are supposed to do. I do enjoy some parts of school, though. What are your favorite movies and books?





Yes, I also understand about doing school work; I never liked it either. Some of my favourite movies are Disney movies, the Star Wars series, the Star Trek series, the Marvel super hero series, the Lord Of The Rings series, Carrie, The Shining, Jaws, Mr. Holland's Opus, Mask, Men & Chicken, Grease, The Breakfast Club, The Ring, Rings, Shaft, and King Kong.



I also like to read too. When I was a kid, my favourite books were the poetry books by Shel Silverstein. They were called Where The Sidewalk Ends, A Light In The Attic, and Falling Up. I also liked another kids' book he wrote called The Giving Tree. I actually used to know another author from Chicago called Tamara Amanda Bryant; we used to E mail each other & talk on the telephone. She wrote books of poetry & prose. Her books were called Stumbling & Mumbling, Conviction, Electric Cats, and Bitter Teachings. I have always been interested in maps, so I like to read atlases. I usually prefer nonfiction instead of fiction, but sometimes I like fiction also. I also like to read biographies too.


Cool! My brother saw The Ring and he was terrified for weeks :lol: . I have read Shel Silverstein before too. I used to read The Giving Tree as well as some of his poetry.

I bet it is :D . The Ring seems terrifying enough!

Cool! I might work at a library one day. Are you like a check-out person?

Yay- I like white cars! They look more "sleek" to me. iballisticquid is mainly a gaming YouTuber, but he also has some car videos I have watched. I wish I could go to a car show! Is it hard learning how to drive a car? I'm kind of nervous about driving one.

They are weird movies, but you may like them if you ever want to see them.



I have worked at the same library for a long time, and I do mostly the same kinds of work every day. I am good at it, and I still like it. I check out a lot of items from the library where I work.



I like white cars too, and I think they are "sleek" too. For me, at first it was hard learning to drive a car, but the more I did it, the easier it got, so it just takes practice. I practiced for 3 years before I took my driving test & got my driver's licence; I just wanted to be well-prepared for it. I passed the test the first time I took it. I have never driven a truck or any kind of big car; they would make me too nervous.

I started a new post because that quote was getting a little long :D .

It must be fun to work at a library. It's convenient how you can check out books, too!

Yeah- I honestly can't imagine myself driving! I'm seriously going to crash into something! I actually might have to learn while driving a minivan 8O . There is no way I could ever drive a bigger vehicle. :D

Do you like having autism/Asperger's?

I play no musical instrument.

I tried guitar lessons when I was 9. I wanted to go out and play baseball instead.

I also work in a library--in the morning.
