My self-summary
Probably the most important thing first: in 2010, I got an official Asperger's Syndrome diagnosis. I am not a very social person, and I find meeting new people a bit scary.
Once I meet someone, and start talking about things I am interested in, I am quite talkative.

I love science, and learning about the world around us, which is why I did a science degree.
I am also interested in the amazing things us humans make, and in particular, skyscrapers.
Nerdy/geeky stuff in general is pretty cool.

As my username suggests, I play the tuba. I have been playing brass instruments since I was 10. The music I listen to is usually music I have played, or I hope to play some day.

I have a large LEGO collection. I also play a bit of minecraft (which is a lot like LEGO, except it is a lot cheaper, and you don't have to put it away when you are finished!)
What I’m doing with my life
I have graduated from uni with a BSc in Physics, but I haven't found a relevant job yet. At the moment, I am employed as a recycling sorter. It is horribly boring, but as a permanent, I now get payed a bit more than as a temp, which is nice.
My main hobbies are music, LEGO, and skyscrapers.
I currently play in four orchestras, two brass bands, and a concert band.
I’m really good at
Music. I love paying the tuba, and I am pretty good at it.
Procrastination. It's almost as if the internet was designed to satisfy procrastination!
Logic, I think rather logically (Part of being autistic I think), which is a good thing most of the time, especially for science related things, but not so great in social situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a beard and long hair tied back.
I am very quiet, except when talking about something I like, then I won't shut up!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like reading science fiction and non fiction science books, although I haven't read much recently. I have started reading the Song of Ice and Fire books, but haven't got too far yet.

I like science fiction movies, and science documentaries. The last movie I saw in a movie theatre was Avengers 2.

I like The Last Airbender, and Korra. Also Doctor Who. I have started watching Star Wars : Clone Wars, which is pretty good so far.

I listen to orchestral music, and not much else. I particularly like Romantic composers like Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, and Dvorak. The radio station at work is The Sound, which plays rock music, which isn't too bad. I rather like Queen.

I like most foods. I don't like spicy food though. Or onion. Why do some people put raw onion in sandwiches?
Six things I could never do without
-stuff to keep me alive (air, water, and food)
-somewhere quiet to go if I am not feeling very social.
-knowing how something works
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things i should be doing, but never seem to get round to doing.
Figuring out what the purpose of my life should be. Things were going fine up until Mother Nature decided to totally mess everything up.
On a typical Friday night I am
sitting at my computer thinking of something interesting to do.
Playing the Tuba in a brass band every second week.
You should message me if

-you think getting to know an Aspie sounds interesting.
