I'm autistic but nobody told me until I was eight. Up until then, people described me as "special" or "different" and I thought that meant I was destined to save the world some day.

When I was about 5, I thought you could get free paper from a printer. I thought that if you don't type anything and then click the "print" button, you could get a blank piece of paper without going to the store and purchasing it with money. I thought I was a genius, since nobody had ever thought of it before, until after a few days ago when our printer ran out of paper. That's when I discovered that you need to put paper inside the printer and that paper doesn't just magically come from printers.

I used to think I was a Waterbender (ya know, like Avatar) because when we went to the public pool and I was playing with the water, I noticed that if you push up under the water, the water jumps up a bit. Uneducated little kid I was, I thought "woah, I can control water!" I know now it was just displacement of water and I'm not a superhuman. I also thought this because I could see, talk, and hear underwater. Blissfully unaware that everyone ELSE can see, talk, and hear underwater too.

When I was young, I used to think the Santa Claus existed. With my brother, we put flour on the floor. The next day, we checked and there were footprints in the flour.
One day, when I was 13, my father told me it was him
who made the footprints with his boots.
I was frustrated but it was funny.

My parents said I could be anything I wanted to be, so I said i wanted to be an octopus. My parents said that means you can choose your job, not species. I then started screaming "But mommy, i want to become an octopus!" and my mom would say "No you can't, changing your species is not possible" and we argued about that alot. hehehehe

When I was 7 or 8 my mom told me that you could be anything you want to be. I believed she meant literally enything, so i wanted to become a meerkat when i grow up. When the teacher would tell me on career day what i want to be, i would say "a meerkat!". I got disappointed when i never saw a real meerkat on career day, but it was fun.

I remember at a very young age, realising that I was significantly more intelligent than children of my own age, and far more empathic, meaning I would never truly fit in as we weren't on the same level.

I used to believe (And still do) that I was the only "Real" Person and that everyone else was just some kind of robot. I never care about others feeling because of how boring and "Unreal" other people around me were. I don't think I will stop believing this until I meet a "Real" person like me.

Once, when I took a shower, I saw that the water "Coming out" of my fingertips.

I was just like: "I'm magical."

So I saw an episode of "H2O,Just add water," and saw how they could control water. I was convinced for so long that I was some mermaid magic person.
