The only thing I remember from my childhood was being forced to watch the worst movie ever made over and over again. I was also forced to listen to rap.

I remember I was short, fat, and bald, just like my dad.

My earliest memory was when I choked on a black marble with a little yellow stripe on it. I was 4 and I was in the lounge when it happened. Ask for any memory earlier than that, and I'd have to break out the baby pictures.

I remember being terrified of a chandelier in my apartment.

Memories that come to me presently:

* Asking a girl in pre-primary to sit on my face. (dont know why, but she did it!)

* Booting a basket ball as hard as I could to upset the principal watching (year 5)

* Round the twist (a certain show we were forced to watch)

* Bringing a mouse home from school, feeding him so much he got REALLY fat.

* Year 7 - freaking out all of a sudden and refusing to go to school for the last 2 weeks.

* Year 5 - Being told off for picking my nose.

* Year 7 - Someone releasing their bowels in my bike helmet and leaving it in the urinal.

* Being tickled by my brother and rolling through a huge window.

* My dog sitting on a bee and whining in the most heart wrenching manner.

* A school dance year 5, playing sardines, with 2 other boys, meaning one person hides, when each gets found the others join them.

* Wondering how a couple of kids didn't get rhythym in choir, how they danced and hit things all spastically out of time.

* Reading out loud in early years, wondering why everyone read so slow.

* Riding my bike to school, cutting across a huge park through the water.

* Getting in trouble in year 4 for slamming my hands on the desk

* Winning the paper-plane making competition in year 5.

* Computing class year 5, wondering why others found them so hard to use.

* Students made the teacher cry in year 5, I didn't understand how it worked.

* Meeting an autistic boy in year 4, going over his house, he'd built around 300 model planes, he amazed me but I never saw him again.

* Being thrown into the wall by my mum, for smashing a door for the 3rd time, I put a HUGE hole in the damn thing.

* Making electronics with my cousin, shocked his sister, it was supposed to be a foot warmer!

* Reading lotr after the teacher read the hobbit to us in year 3, I remember thinking if I memorised all the words I might be able to understand the other kids.

Whoah.. I didn't know I remembered this much, theres plenty more but I'll stop before it never ends. It seems the more I face myself and problems now, the more the past reveals itself to me.

When I was two or three, there was a patch of garden under the stairs of our house, and in it were heaps of earthworms. I was so little, they seemed gigantic (even though they probably weren't.)

I've never liked earthworms since.

Though I'm 15, I have a lot of vivid childhood memories. Childhood age ranging from 2 years old to 12 years old, 'cos 13+ is teenagers. :)

1 is The Blood Test Incident. My mum had to remind me on this on confirming it's true because I had recurring minor memories on it. Where I had to have a blood test to do tests on me as the doctors were doing tests on me to see if there was anything wrong with me before. Lol, they thought I was deaf just because I didn't answer to them.

Anyways, my mum said she was at home with my brother (who was 4 at the time) looking after him while my dad was with me for this blood test. At 1st the nurse tried to put the needle in, but I flinched and because then in the past I didn't like being touched, I screamed. The nurses and my dad came in and pinned me down with me screaming incredibly loud and with my own fists punched/pushed a nurse which flew backwards across the room. They then, tried sedating me, and I still was awake in hysterics. My mum said they put enough sedation in me in the end to put down an elephant and I was still conscious and awake. The hospital wrote a letter of apology for this. Eventually, I didn't have the blood test done and on that day I came home wobbling because the seadtives were still in me.

That's 1 story that comes to mind about childhood. Other little things that I've grown out since I was 2 were:

> I hated being in places where there were crowds.

> I hated being touched by anyone else other than my mum.

> I ignored everyone else except my mum.

> I didn't want to do anything I didn't want to, and did what I wanted to.

> I couldn't talk and the only words I spoke were mumbles and what I heard in the last 5 seconds.

I could go on with stories...but I might be boring you, and the list would grow longer. :lol:
