    Hi @melindajade121 - Welcome to this great community, & thank you for sharing about yourself. We have a lot of members on the autistic spectrum, & you might like to have a look at some posts about this on Scope. See: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/learning-disabilities-and-autism
    What languages are you learning? I'm trying to learn German.
    I've always been interested in anatomy (especially neuroanatomy, as well as neurophysiology), which I became interested in as a physio student. My son is into big cats & astronomy. His wife likes Harry Potter, & has all the books, which she re-reads. Sorry to say my son & I haven't read them!
    I hope you enjoy being part of this community. You might like our virtual 'Coffee lounge,' where we chat about books, music, films, our pets, hobbies & interests, & much more. :)

    Hi @melindajade121 and welcome to the Community.  How are you today?  It's really nice to meet you and have you on board!  Thank you for sharing with us and what a lovely photo you have shown us too.  

    You have some great interests there!  I like watching the Harry Potter films, but haven't read any of the books so far.  

    I hope you enjoy your time with us on the forum and meet some new friends along the way.  We are a friendly bunch of people here!  I look forward to seeing you around.  If we can be of any help to you then please just say.  All the best.  :smile:

    Welcome to the community @melindajade121.
    What interests you about space? It's one of my favourite subjects, even if I don't really understand much of it!

    At the moment I'm addicted to learning mandarin Chinese. It's my favourite language by far!

    I just like looking at different planets and seeing pictures of them. I also like games that take place in space because it makes me feel like an astronaut helping aliens with what they need help with. I like helping everyone in any way possible.

    I love looking at pictures of different planets as well. In fact the background on both my computer screen and my phone are photos of Neptune which I think is really beautiful. :smile:
    Do you have a favourite planet?
