    I'm loving this thread.. very fun!

    I grew up in the country and there weren't a lot of kids around. So, I had to make the most of being by myself or playing with my sister. I loved to climb trees and read books or wander around the countryside. I also had some favorite little hidden places that no one would know about. Usually, it was just a place where the tree limbs grew down low. I would climb in and be hidden from everyone, though there wasn't anyone around anyway! If I was stuck inside, I would build forts with blankets and chairs and hide in them. I just always liked to be tucked away somewhere.

    I was fascinated with the thought of magic things. I used to, probably around 5 or 6, get as many random things, like crayons, glue, pencil shavings, and mix them all together, thinking I was making some magic potion. If I were left home for too long by myself, there was no telling what would end up in a big bowl. I got in trouble at school for getting a kid to try one of my concoctions. I also got in trouble on the first day of kindergarten for fighting.. a couple of boys, one of which was my cousin, chased me down on the playground and held me down. i bit one of them when he put his hand over my mouth. Of course, he didn't get in trouble but i did for biting! I'm still bitter...

    I lived far away from all the other kids and my parents weren't too big on driving us into town for social events. Because of that, I really learned to be alone and I never had a lot of friends. I did get to see my cousins a lot in the summer. We would stay in trouble with prank calling and just being generally disobedient. I read so many books. I stayed in whatever fantasy world I was in at the moment. I would also write a lot of my own stories and poetry, though i never could share any of it with anyone.

    Is it wrong to point out now that you're an NF?

    I was interested in the morbid and the macabre too. Poe is a huge fave of mine. And, I'd read up on different cultural rituals involving death and dying. And, there was this other fascination with serial killers. Albert Fish still my fave, if only for his imagination regarding self-injurious behaviours.

    I used to stay up late reading Poe out loud to myself in a whisper, with a flashlight under the covers.

    Wow, you just made me remember something else. I think I was about 12 - my dad and I saw the whole Jack the Ripper series (British?) together. I don't know what my dad was thinking. I was really fascinated by it.

    !!

    In fifth grade, I read a book about it and set about to finally solve the mystery of Jack's identity. I soon hit a wall when I realized that there's no physical evidence and it's all based on semi-faulty eyewitness accounts. But still.

    Jack must've been an NT, so we identify.

    Around the same age, I gave a detailed presentation of how babies are made to a group of boys who didn't believe me. I backed up my thesis with articles from Good Housekeeping and pictures from Playboy.

    When I was 10, I was "grounded for life" for taking apart the piano. I did this to prove to my doubting friend that it was not only a stringed instrument, but also a percussive one.

    That was also the year that I became a "mathlete".
    That was also the year I started copywriting my original music with Library of Congress.

    At 12, I hated my step father and quickly learned to take the brakes off of his bike. After his accident, he caught me while I was dismantling the breaks from his car.

    When I was 15, I had graduated from high school. My mother said I was too young to go to college and that waiting a year or two at home would be the best thing for me. I promptly packed my bags and left while my parents were at work.
    cool, that's what you are.


    ps - did you also invent/make the Frankenstein Monster?

    I'm still obsessed with serial killers. And people who specialize in controlling minds, like Charles Manson. I minored in forensic science in my undergrad because that stuff is so damn interesting to me. Didn't know that was an NT thing...

    I tried to bring dead birds back to life using electrical currents, but it never worked. I had been inspired by Sergei S. Bryukhonenko. (fact or fiction???)
