Howdy =]

Just discovered this forum today. Kind of feels good reading everyones posts and knowing theres other people out there who think and feel the same as me.

Anywho, a bit about myself. My names Gavin, I'm 23, and from Sydney.

I always knew I was a bit different from everyone else but didnt know why. I always put my social awkwardness down to simply being an introvert until I discovered the world asperger which explained it and a whole lot more about myself.

I diagnosed myself with aspergers, I'm a textbook example I guess. The social awkardness, speech and language, unusual sensitivity to certain stimuli. I've learnt to bluff my way through most social situations though, most people would just describe me as a quirky kind of person I guess :D

I dont have restricted inteerstes though. I want to know about and be good at everything!

Anywho, I guess the main reason I am here is to meet other people from Sydney. I'm into guitar, gigs, photography, film, doing outdoorsy kind of stuff. So feel free to send me a message if you like. I think thats enough for now :D
