When I was a kid... Well, I was like I am now, more or less.
But of course with less cynicism and shit. I was a bit wilder, too.
Still am pretty wild, at times, though
My friends started doing the facepalm thing at me after a few years of "I've got an idea! We'll take a big fat gang and..." xD
We did a lot of fun stuff, though!
Set fire to a few things, even.
I guess I was the leader of the pack up until I was fourteen, but I didn't really become aware of it until I lost it in junior high and became a total reject that everyone hated because they were supposed to.
Recovered after that, but in my small town I was branded for life, so I moved away from there recently. And now i've begun to bloom again, in a way. It's pretty damn nice.
