Were you a naughty girl or boy? Did you play outside with the other kids or were you sheltered, like me? LOL. Did you grow up in a nice home or did you always have to cover your ears because your parents fought a lot? What were your childhood dreams? Did they come true now that you've grown up? What were you like when you were a kid--- are you still the same kid now? What has changed after all these years? Let's have a wonderful discussion.

Good question inkyuboz. Hmmm...I was a quiet kid. I was an only child so I was sheltered like you. ^_^ But, I do have a lot of friends specially from our neighborhood. I'm just not allowed to play in the rain with them. My ambition as a kid was to be a doctor. Cause I wanted to take revenge on my pediatrician because she always gives me injection! But yeah, I'm so far away from that ambition..lol. I took up an Engineering course, but I ended up working as a call center agent.

I was extremely shy and rarely spoke unless spoken to first. When teachers would call on me, I could feel my face set on fire and I would just about cry. I was terrified to raise my hand to ask to use the restroom, and I tip-toed through my house so I wouldn't disturb anyone who happened to be home. When I was outside with my friends away from all of that, though, I was free to be as loud and have as much fun as I could. Now, I'm very reserved until I get to know people better. When I'm comfortable, I don't hold anything back.

I was also a shy kid. I never raised my hands when the teacher asks for volunteers. I'm usually the last kid to be picked in "playground pickings", I was like a liability in kid's games! Sad to say I was a loser back then. LOL.

Childhood dream was like to grow up,university,and now fail to realize is not really possible to study their own material,but this dream is really very good,very simple and very clear,a child would like to grow up,because they can at out to play,others do not have pipes,grew up after the discovery did not grow up happy,even if can go out to play,but that mood has changed.There is no taste,dream bubble,and now I do not know that they want to. I prefer to study for the dream of growing up is really a great deal,now I have only one dream is to have a child's state of mind. We are in different stages have different dreams,with dreams.We talk in life will not feel lonely on the road.Even if we know that this dream will not be realized in the future,but because the dream of our life is always colorful. Is important that you have been unwavering efforts towards your dreams,abandon the idea of never wavered.How now,even if you are a small step forward,and you form your dreams to shorten the distance form the door.On the happiness of your own progress. Always believe their own good will to achieve ,you will have a successful day. Have a good day in mylot and wish you happy everyday! Good luck~

i was really well behaved. part of it was just my nature but the other was that my mom was really strict and i went to catholic school. so there was no misbehaving. i grew up to be very responsible and never got myself in any real trouble. my parents did fight alot unfortunately and as a result i grew up to hate confrontation.
