So this is the first time that I have ever joined a online community. This is a completely new venture for me where I have no idea what to expect. Hopefully this will be a positive experience for me and for everyone else, but...only time will tell, I guess.

So without further adieu, I will very warmly and kindly introduce myself.

My name is Generalhaagen- as in the ice cream brand name, HaagenDazs. But feel free to name me as you wish, just as long as it is not rude lol.

I am a very proud Aspie! I'm a strong believer in Autism Acceptance and the Neurodiversity moment. The world would be a much better place if we all learned to accept, to love and to embrace one another. Being autistic has made me who I am today. A strong, passionate and caring person and without it, I'd be a very different person. Neurotypical's are great, don't get me wrong but I like being autistic. I like being me. :D Because of this, this has made me a bit of an activist.

I don't have huge expectations. I hope to make a couple of friends here and see how things progress.

As far was my special interest goes, I'm really into theme parks/amusement park and roller coasters. Though it can also my worst enemies at times. Going to Walt Disney World in peek session, no thanks... I'm sure a lot of you can relate to sensory issues.

Other interests go, I like history (WW2, The Roman Empire, Ancient Egypt, Vikings, Victorian England, Russia and Germany are my favourite subjects) and geography, art, music, the theatre, acting, creating characters, computers, gaming (Pc gamer but I will touch anything)

It's also great to see some fellow Brits on here! :D
