I am 10 years old. I love airplanes and cats. I like playing on the computer, riding my bike and playing with my friends. I am homeschooled. I live with my nice mom, cool step-dad, my very annoying little sister, and my freaky but very cute cats. I am going to write about everything in my world. [In The Air–]

10-year-old Matthew has Asperger’s syndrome and learning disabilities. His blog is amazing–not in spite of or because of these disabilities but just because he’s a remarkably literate, interesting 10-year-old kid. He’s on a mission to interview 100 people about their jobs.

7. Do you have a t-shirt with the periodic table on it?
I used to, when I was in high school. It was white, with a blue periodic table. But I don’t have it anymore.
8. What is your favorite color? Why?
My favorite color changes sometimes. Usually it is blue or green or black. Right now it is green, because I just bought some cool green shoes, and I like them.
9. What is your favorite word in Spanish?
I don’t know how to speak Spanish, but my favorite word in Spanish is probably muertos.

I certainly wasn’t doing anything like this at the age of 10. I remember running around the playground trying to avoid cooties and that was about it. This kid is amazing. Go check him out.
