Autism Unveiled: Week 4
I like music, art, bowling, dancing and playing basketball. I like to joke around with people. I like to do impressions of people.
How does my autism affect me?
Sometimes I’m spacey. It’s hard for me to concentrate on two things at the same time.
For example, if I’m peeling or eating an orange I don’t hear what people say. My
orange tastes so sweet and the acidic feel on my hand makes me not concentrate
on anything else.
So don’t ask me a question when I’m eating an orange. Wait until I finish and
wash my hands. otherwise I’ll just say “yes.”
Sometimes I have trouble listenting when people talk to me. I am hearing other things like the music in my head or thinking my own thoughts.
I like mariachi and Kurdish music. One of my favorite bands is Carlos Sarabia.
This is a painting I made of a mariachi band. I want to be a middle eastern and mariachi DJ.
I like dogs. This is a painting of a dog I like named Bella.
I like that I am an artist and that I have a nice dad and nice mom and nice step-dad which is Kurt. I like the city I live in which is El Cajon. I like my sisters and their boyfriends. This is a painting of my sisters.
I like that my mom took me to Mexico three times.
