Here's something weird that I did when I was little:
We had an abundance of caterpillar nests in our front yard in a little forest-y section. A few of the neighborhood kids, my older brother and sister, and I always thought it would be great fun to stand underneath of the nests, throw rocks at them, and have caterpillars rain down on you. We tried to see who could catch the most! We passed a quite a few of our days doing this.

^Haha, we were weird kids. To be fair, though, I was probably three or four, and all the older kids thought it was cool.

When I was around 7 years old, I was Easter egg hunting with all of the kids in my class at school. I don't remember how, but I ended up tripping over something, and all of my Easter eggs went flying out of my basket. All of the other kids saw the opportunity and they stole my fallen Easter eggs. My poor little 7 year old heart was crushed.


.... And that was the day I became an INFP. :wink:

I remember nearly giving this one kid a concussion during a game of kickball, because it was my turn to kick but he tried to go in front of me and I was determined not to let that happen so we both started running and I ended up tripping him and he fell headfirst onto the pavement, he had to leave school for the day and go to the doctor because of it.

I also remember the gym teacher in like second grade punishing me because I fell down during a game, and I tried to protest and cry and all that but they told my parents and I got in trouble.

I also remember nearly every day being told to shut up and go away by anyone I tried to talk to, and someone threatening to stab me to death with an insulin needle.

I actually don't remember too much about my childhood, but those are the things I remember well.

A lot..............I was such a weird, awkward kid.

This guy I had a crush on who was so quiet wouldn't pay me any attention so I sang to him out of nowhere and I'm pretty sure he had no idea wtf was going on.

I prank called this girl who was really popular until her parents told mine and made me stop, I guess because I wanted her to pay more attention to me or something.

When I was in summer camp, we had this talent show, and these two girls who teased me wanted to be my "background dancers" when I lipsynched to rap. >_> It was a hotass mess and people laughed. Also, I didn't really want them to be in it, but I couldn't stand to tell them no.

At a different summer camp, there were these girls who performed regular shows where they also danced and lipsynched. I wanted to be in it and had to "try out." I remember I didn't even know how to dance but I guess they couldn't tell or something because they let me in, anyway. xD

I tried to steal an eggplant.

There are more. Might share them later.

When I was in kindergarten there was this kid who had a toy that I really wanted so I befriended him and, over time, convinced him to trade me his toy for a toy that I had that was definitely not as cool as the one he had. He traded me, and, in a week, I wasn't talking to him anymore. I felt so terrible but damn that was a cool robot.

I remember when I was in the third or fourth grade, all I wanted was a red ryder pellet gun. No I never shot my eye out, but I remember for hours on hours on end for about a year, Id go out in my backyard, climb on top of my shed and stage "assassination" scenarios. Like Id setup a Batman figurine on a "podium" surrounded by his "bodyguards" (which was either dirt clots or a transformer toy) and try to hit the bodyguards first then the target...kinda of an odd thing for a 3rd or 4th grader to be doing come to think of it.

I also remember trying to make an obstacle course out of my living room in honor of American gladiators. It would be fun until my mom came in and broke up all the fun.

I remember having a great childhood. I think the only obscurity I noticed between me and the world around me growing up was my unwillingness to retract my feelings. I couldn't even tell you when I got good at hiding my feelings, it just became more of a tool when I need the emotion. But, I was generally a happy kid, no real problems until about age 12, when my parents divorced and then I kind of opened my eyes to things that bothered me. Like being bullied and so on. But for the first twelve years I was kind of like a emotional robot, if that makes any sense.

In first grade, it was popular to own these Pokemon cards. I stole some cards of a friend when he didn't see, I felt so cruel afterwards though.. I was too embarrassed to give them back to him.

Once in second grade when I sat in the classroom listening to the teacher, I suddenly felt a strange & awful scent. I turned to my friend Andreas at the left & looked at him with a disgusted look. I saw him turning red so I understood what was going on.. I reached my hand up & the teacher asked what I wanted. I said "Andreas just farted & the smell is disgusting, you can't fart in the classroom". Everyone started to laugh & Andreas started to cry..

At the time I remember that I felt like he was torturing me with that fart and I had some kind of stupid principle in my head that said "farts in public areas = not okay" or something.

I felt so stupid & cruel afterwards but we became friends again shortly after. If you are reading this, sorry Andreas.

I remember getting embarrassed and crying a lot within the years of my youth lol.

One time we were playing a game of tag in gym and you had to bring the people you tag in a hula-hoop. I, being a chubby child, didn't tag anyone, so my hula-hoop was empty. I started sniffling and my gym teacher yelled at me to stop crying and she said if I didn't stop crying she would stub my finger with a stapler. I think she was trying to make me laugh, but it made it worse. After that, I remember hating that lady with a passion and fear.

In middle school the tables were super packed and hard to get around. I tried scooting passed a chair when I tripped and got casserole all over me lol. I laughed it off doing something even more stupid to make it look little (I did that alot), but inside I died.

I also used to catch grasshoppers with my best friend(who still is here with me whoot whoot) in the playground

Reading all that makes me tear up lol.

I once sent a valentines card to a boy I liked (oh goodness, I was 10) my class teacher made a huge joke out of it calling the boy 'Romeo' luckily nobody knew it was me who left it and decided this other girl did & made fun of her... I felt so guilty.

I peed my pants in the dining room once, that was fun. I also had a fear of dinner ladies because they thought I was anorexic (I wasn't the food was just unbearably gross) they stopped bothering me after they forced me to skip the bookclub x-mas party (so cool, I know) where there was food to sit in the IT room, of all places, with my class teacher who ate it for me; also fun.

And it's my turn :3 I once peed in the video game section of Target. It was in front of two small Asian children who were struck speechless.

Stupid 8 bathroom-hating self, lmao.
