    As a very young child (toddler) I was apparently pretty friendly and happy. I really don't remember much of anything from back then, except for images and certain events. Certainly don't remember any details - it's why I always have to ask others how I was. By later elementary I was becoming more sensitive, and later elementary is also when the phenomenon of friends leaving me began - my mother tells me in one instance another girl turned my friend against me/was jealous of me, and then in another instance another girl just gradually left me for the same girl, incidentally, who turned the friend from earlier years against me. [I really rubbed this popular girl the wrong way, it seems, as I never liked her and I was probably different enough such that by later elementary, 'different' equated to not having many friends]. From what I recall I was always highly 1:1 though, and was never a group leader, or wanting to stand out, or extroverted in any rambunctious/outgoing/initiating/leading sense. I didn't cause any ripples.

    By junior high into high school I went extremely inwards and although I guess I had a few friends, by early teenage years for all intents and purposes I didn't *really* open up or talk to anyone - even my friends. I just did a few things with them, considered them friends, but I didn't ever share any of my thoughts or feelings - so in essence, there was no intimacy. I was insecure, paranoid, and very unhappy/unconfident. I had almost no social life to speak of.

    However I prioritized school/academics, enjoyed excelling at that, and enjoyed my solo activities - music, reading, outdoor stuff, art. It was just me and myself -- thinking and observing, not interacting -- I didn't even really talk to my parents by that point... in many ways I was ok with all of this, but I was also highly aware and bothered/paranoid by my having no friends and my social issues. I always tried to have a cheerful/friendly face for people, but I was quite scared of people inside, thus I was unable to have true friendships and I became emotionally stunted and set up some internal issues that took a while afterwards to work myself out of.

    My mother put a padlock on the front dorr...and the fridge.
    I was experimental and most curious... i wanted to know and understand everything...on my own...in my own way.
    I also had a strange love of nearly everything.
    Similar to AF the best way to get me to do something was by telling me i couldn't so it... but more in a "your not allowed" way.

    So...some pics....

    my best friend said she was the same way, I admire the adventurous side of people the most I think. I was pretty close to my parents. I never wanted to disappoint them :o.

Threw him birthday parties with all the other stuffed animals. I loved my grandmother and used to spend a lot of time with her. I hated leaving to go to any other babysitter (with a bunch of loud and rambunctious other kids around.) But I liked school, I learned to read when I was 3 or 4, so I remember early teachers being impressed, but some of my elementary school report cards made it sound like I was off in my own world and didn't pay enough attention to directions. I remember getting screamed at by one teacher a lot, (third grade)- absolutely screaming over just about everything I did. Thankfully there was two teachers in third grade and the other one used to stick up for me. The screamer tried to put me in third/ fourth grade "transitions" (which is short for- "not ready for fourth grade") but the other one saved me and put me in the regular class with the most fun teacher in the school-(I think she figured I could use a break, the class was full, but she worked some magic.) At that point I became more extroverted and started making more friends, and then moved.

    In middle school and high school I was more outgoing and very wacky and silly and made a lot of friends, (sitting in the locker pretending to be a locker monster and talking to everyone who walked by, chasing a guy in an elmo suit through the mall, being a regular crazy highschooler.) I was the leader of a prissy SJ posse. They were all about school and sports and band and activities- I think I helped lighten them up a bit because I was always acting crazy.They drove me nuts a lot, but high schoolers need a safety net. I had a lot of friends outside the group too. My mom went back to school around this era so we lived in university housing and I was lucky to have a lot of cultural diversity within my friends. Always a new kid knocking on my door. though I had my depressed, emo, poetry in the journal months. (Usually in the winter, sometimes I was extremely depressed and didn't get involved much.) One year I stayed home from school for three weeks faking sick.
    Thats exactly how I was growing up except for the highschool part, im stilll super out there, but I'm so much so that it got to my grades and junk. that's never good.

    I was a chubby little kid who would play sick to stay home by myself from school whenever I could get away with it and then get bored when there was only soaps and Matlock on TV, and after I had already concocted something for lunch. Some successes were the sausage-cheesburger, the pickle/potato chip/peanutbutter/bologna/jelly sandwitch, and various miniature Mexican dishes made out of pieces of white bread squished into a ball and rolled out into miniature tortillas.

    I'd go hang out with my friend Omar from down the street, he'd do something bad, like show me porn from his dad's closet, or tell me a new bad word, and then I'd righteously scold him for it, and we both felt good, like we had gotten something out of the exchange. I mixed household chemicals and poured them on trees as expiriments that I never actually returned to. I set things on fire in highly controlled conditions.

    I would annoy my brothers and go through their stuff for contraband when they weren't there. They must have hated me. I found their BBguns, nunchucks, heavy metal cassettes, and strip poker floppy disks and turn them in. It wasn't so much that I wanted to punish them, it's that I wanted to have to be connected with them somehow, while they were out doing their high school stuff. And then when I found something cool, I just had to tell somebody.

    I rode my bike out into the desert and wandered neighborhoods until I got heat exhaustion. I'd go by Cindi Lazoya's house a few times, just in case she was there. I remeber having a dream of saving her from boiling in a cauldron of boiling green stuff, all to a Moody Blues song. I always felt like the other kids knew something that I didn't, but I wasn't sure what it was.
