What's made you who you are? Whine, rant, fantasize (within limits), laugh, cry, recount your life or just a single detail that stands out to you particularly that helps describe the person you've become.
Sounds like me. I went to a small private school from k-grade to 5th, three girls in my class, was picked on by the teacher's pet, who was never punished. Was told I was incapable of doing the work, was accused of lying when I did well on reading assignments. My parents pulled me out and homeschooled me in 6th, graduated high school at 15, community college for a few years, now at UCDavis. I can echo your statement, "my parents have probably had the largest impact on me... they've instilled in me what i think are solid values and a desire to succeed." Very well put.Originally posted by: gopunk
well, i was picked on a lot as a small child, and now i hate the world. yep, that about sums it up.

Interesting what you find out about people. I have rheumatoid arthritis. But to look at all the bad things is boring and to talk about all the good things sounds like bragging. I love to read, I'll read anything, if I don't like it I'll read it twice. I don't like watching movies much anymore, I get the feeling I'm emptying my brain into some numbing machine, but some are good. I want to get a position as an intern for a literary agency this summer, I think I'll get it. Yay! Keep posting guys.Originally posted by: hzl_eyed_grl
My story, huh? Well, I had a good childhood. My parents love me and we are very close. I've had to deal with a lot of health problems. I had to fight cancer when I was a teenager and I believe it made me a much stronger person. I still struggle with trials in my life, but I'm trying to do the best I can. I'm also still trying to figure out what I really want to be when I *grow up*. I suppose the saying is correct.... "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger."
