Well, in my early youth, I had the typical Aspie trait of lining things up and an obsession with unusual objects -- such as speakers, ceiling fans, and sink drains. I remember a couple of times, my dad bought me some car speakers just because I thought they were cool. I got a cardboard box and cut holes into it to put in and wire up the speakers so I kinda made my own stereo system out of a cardboard box.
I think my first passion was movies. I used to go to the movies every weekend with my grandmother -- they were usually really bad comedies (like Ernest movies) -- and then I engaged in creative play by myself inventing and acting out my own stories. Often, this worried my parents, who often withheld my privileges to watch violent movies, because my mind was quite violent.
I also used to get my name written on the board in school for not paying attention and staring off into space. But my life long passion was always movies. And I used to also play 8-bit Nintendo games, particularly Zelda, and then I designed my own maps for the underworld levels. When I got a Sega Genesis, I did the same thing, designing my own levels for the Sonic the Hedgehog games.
