What type of kid were you?
I was... weird... no wait am weird. I honestly haven't changed much.
I was a nerd, dork, geek, through and through. In High School, I always had a Magic card's deck and a videogame with me (first GB color, than a GB SP). I was nice to everyone, I didn't have any real enemies.
As a kid, I took apart things to see how they worked. I had enough thought to it that I only took apart things that were either broken in some fashion, or weren't going to be used anymore. I had a chemistry set and mixed a few things together it produced this nasty grey stuff that stained the carpet. I told my mom it was paint.
I am stubborn, once I make up my mind about something it is very hard to get me to change it.
All at the same time I was extremely quiet in public, I never really spoke unless I had to. It took a lot for me to open up to people.
Yup just a bit weird.

I was a nightmare. I did so much to my poor mother! No wonder she is a mean, crazy woman now! lol I never did drugs, but everything else was fair game. It is a miracle I'm alive. One year we visited the E.R. 15 times, and every injury was my fault. At 4 I found and caught a bat. It bit me, and I had to have rabies shots. I turned frogs and snakes loose in my house. I had a genetics science project that involved breeding fancy mice, at one point I had 37. In my bed room. At 14 I brought home a baby crow and raised it. They talk, and I taught it to say say 'shut up'. At 15 I had a baby raccoon. That was in addition to every dog, cat, bunny, and any other furry animal I could smuggle home. My horse kicked my mom in the bum. My boyfriends looked like thugs. My mom caught me twice sneeking out at night. (once to go hunting, the other time was a boy) I wore jeans to my junior prom. Went with the gay kid to my senior prom. I did wear a dress, but he wore graduation boxer shorts!
My mom now laughs like a lunatic at my daughters antics. Yeah, she is just like me!
I was introverted with a little streak of tom-boy--not the tomboy that likes team sports though, the tom-boy that likes to climb trees to get away from all the annoying people.
I was also a bit stubborn and very determined once I set my mind to something. I've lost a little of that as an adult, but I still don't like people much.
