I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm not great at writing bios, so I'll try and keep it simple. I'm a pretty big history buff. (especially when it comes to anything presidential in that regard.) In fact, I hope to be a history teacher one day. (My social skills aren't THAT terrible. At least that aren't in my opinion anyways...) I also enjoy reading, and am currently enjoying former president Jimmy Carters book white house diary (I HIGHLY recommend it :D .) Drawing and animating are also some of my other biggest hobbies. For the longest time I wanted to be an animator or an artist of some kind, until I realized that I wouldn't enjoy doing those things for a living. I'm not actually sure if I have autism or not. I was apparently diagnosed with it as a baby. But recently (out of boredom) I looked into some articles on autism and It doesn't seem that I have any symptoms. That, and most people I tell are surprised and say something along the lines of "Really? You don't seem autistic." or, "You don't act like it." I know that autism is a spectrum so I in all probability I do have some kind of it. But these responses nonetheless, have still left me abit skeptical. If your interested in asking me any other personal questions please feel free to do so! I'm an open book :D

I like to read about history in Smithsonian magazine and I also like historical fiction.

Welcome to WP! An interest in the Autism Spectrum is cause enough to visit here, with or without a diagnosis.

And, obviously, we can't diagnose you. But I hope you have discovered:

----Autism-Spectrum Quotient Test
----Aspie Quiz-Note: registering is optional!

They can't diagnose you, either, but they might strengthen your suspicions.
