I used to copy maps of countries out of atlases. I'd draw little info boxes beside them too. Geography was my favourite subject in school when I was young because I always dreamed about travelling.

My little sister is in the living room watching women opening kinder eggs on Youtube. She's 5. That's normal child behaviour, not autism. When I was a kid I obsessed with the ocean, the Titanic, boats and sea creatures, to the point where I had the wallpaper and carpet of my room all blue. Was that autism? No. Its just small humans with small brains doing stupid shit.
Why do you think that's how you turned out? Getting drunk is socially acceptable to normies but all those things you used to do and think about and made you happy, they told you it was childish and autistic and you'd never amount to anything. It's a vicious cycle that they locked you into.
God damn do I feel you. I used to constantly fantasize about the future, how I'd travel and make friends all over the world. Now all I look forward to now is my next few days off so I can smoke some meth.
>wear hood up whilst in school
>when walking through a crowd I'd place my hand on the other persons shoulder and psuh slightly like altair
I didn't do it THAT much, only like in elementary school.
>unironically wear fingerless gloves
Because I cycle and they are utilitarian
>unironically worship school/mass shooters
I used to do something extremely weird, I hope I'm not the only one. I would watch a shit ton of cartoons when I was younger. So much that I would actually remember episodes in my head and some would replay in my head. I would be staring at a wall and laugh my ass off.
my childhood autism traits:
>Refused to be around any other children
>spent all of my free time from 3 on reading, building with legos and playing on a computer
>when I was given toys I would organize them neatly, and than go back to reading/playing on a computer/building with legos
>my parents gave me some sort of math book for kids and ever since then I did math for fun
>nearly never slept, intense night terrors and hallucinations, could only fall asleep if the light was on and I was listening to music
>sensory overload type of things
>clumsy as hell
>expressed nearly no emotions, I don't recall ever throwing any sort of temper tantrum (I'm not sure if this is an autistic trait)
my parents refused to believe I was an autismo, so they never had someone check
None of my shrinks so far have thought I was an autist, so I guess there's that
Its not autism. Kids display autistic behaviour because they're brains are designed to to test and find everything out about the world. Their entire lives revolve around learning. That's why they constantly ask questions, try things like swearing to find out how far their parents are willing to tolerate it and fiddle with physical objects all the time. To me the sea represented something no-one knew about. That's why I was obsessed with it. I wanted to be a "sea explorer" when I was a kid.
Collect keys. I have no idea why. I just really, really liked keys and was fascinated by their shapes. I guess I imagined I could sneak into locked buildings if I had enough different keys. So I stole them whenever I could, and asked grownups to give me ones they didn't need anymore. My uncle used to give me a lot of keys, but he died when I was 10, and my key obsession with him.
