Jordan

Name: Jordan
Interests, hobbies, obsessions, perseverations etc: Computers, Video Games, Music, Coffee, Wine, Beer, Cooking - I know a huge amount of information about all of these but sometimes there is a failure to follow through with doing things as well as it seems I can by the way I talk about them and how much I know about them. I like to tinker with computers/electronics as much as the average "manly man" likes to tinker with his car. I have a fixation on pan-asian cooking, and tend to eat stir-fried dishes or curries, etc more often than anything else. People find this a little odd. I have an obsession with the study of languages, however my mind is trying to wander all over the place so I am not fluent in anything but English. I work in a very social environment, and have for years, and this has taught me how to behave normally when it is required, however it puts great stress on me to do so, and by the end of the day i'm mostly spent.
Year of birth: 1983
Profession, area of study, etc: A major coffee shop.
Where you live in the world: Minnesota
Marital status, # of kids etc.: Nothing yet, but we'll see.
Comments: My observations as well as those of others have led me to believe that I have AS - being diagnosed as anything else or just nothing would be a huge surprise to me and many around me. I plan to seek a diagnosis when I receive insurance from my workplace.
