What are some things you thought you would never do as a kid or when you were younger?

Or things you still would never do?

When I was in elementary school-7th grade I played outside a lot and was athletic. I loved running around and racing others. Watching TV shows and cartoons influenced me to be someone who would never give up and I wanted to be the best I could be.

Now I sit on the computer every day, watching anime and playing video games. I tend to give up easily on a lot of things now. I can't run like I used to(one mile makes me wanna puke), and I can't really find anything productive to do that I'm passionate about and stick with it. It's actually pretty sad.

Also another thing is being alone. I was always scared of being alone as a kid (I had to have someone in the same room as me to use the restroom) and I couldn't sleep alone until junior high school but now I spend most of my time alone which I find peaceful and relaxing.

pretty much the entire person i am now, i never thought i'd be when i was younger. i was a very typical, girly little thing, in love with everything popular and 'trendy' etc. everything 'normal' for a girl. i was social, spoke to anyone and everyone and was just pretty bubbly and confident.

now i sit in a room covered in anime and rock/metal/alt posters and merch. im socially anxious and find it a task to even look people in the eye. i spend pretty much all my time alone in my room/the house, playing ps3, watching anime, drawing, just doing my own things. im not really confident anymore. i slowly became the polar opposite of what i was and what i thought i'd be, but im totally okay with that.

A year ago if you told me that I would be riding a motorcycle on the road then I would've laughed in your face.
Being a clumsy kind of person I just never thought that I would have the kind of coordination required to tame a machine of that calibre.
Anyway, it's something that just kind of happened one day last summer, I walked into the dealership and found a bike that I felt comfortable on and I signed the papers... about a month later I was going through the motions of buying my gear, taking the MSA course, getting my licensing all straightened out, etc... it wasn't until October when I was finally able to go upgrade my M1 to an M2 and therefore get much cheaper insurance but by that time the riding season was already coming to an end so I decided that I would wait until spring 2014. Anyway I've now been riding since March 17th (I think it was -20 that day hehe) and I am just loving it, there's nothing like finding a curvy road and just getting some good lean angles, it's pretty wild.

I went bungee jumping last summer because of a dare and holy crap am I glad I did it. Honestly I would have never thought I would do it, especially at a county fair.

I think I've reverted back to the little kid I once was, actually.

Once I entered my early teens, of course my outlook on life took a 180, as it's bound to do in the hell pit that is middle school. I was reserved, quiet, gullible, and completely lacked confidence. This compared to the cheeky, talkative little kid that used to be unafraid to speak whatever was on her mind. People who've known me since I was small say I used to be a manipulative little smartass. Completely different from middle school me, who was too afraid to even introduce herself to strangers.

Years ago, I probably thought I'd be stuck in a life of solitude. One of those slightly creepy quiet people who spend half the day in an office and the other half shut up in their home. Always too awkward to talk to people properly, or even look them in the eye. Well, that's not quite what happened.

Nowadays, I've become much more comfortable with myself. I try not to sit in my room all day because I find it depressing. Instead, I like going out with friends, or volunteering somewhere, or just taking a walk. Being a natural introvert, I still enjoy my downtime, but I can no longer stand to be alone all the time. I've become more confident and less of a doormat (for the most part, anyways).

I never thought I would voluntarily go to social things where I knew no one else there. I never thought I would get friends together to go out somewhere. I especially never thought I'd move to the city. I always thought cities were too loud and busy and full of way too many people. I wanted to live by myself in some little secluded cabin away from everyone. But now I love the city, and I shudder to think of living in that lonely little cabin.

I remember talking with some friends at the bar. We remembered that program back from grade school D.A.R.E or whatever and when it was around we said that we would never do drugs or drink alcohol and stuff like that.


It "clearly" worked.


Go a few years later around middle school/high school if you told me I were going to spend most of my days after turning 18 stuck inside your house just watching TV and playing video games, I wouldn't have believed you, since I had ambitions and goals of being like a straight A student who would be finishing his college major by now and would be working a nice paying job even if it was only part time.


Of course I got academic probation due to horrid grades, and can't focus in class what so ever. My job is a stay at home job that pays OK but only just enough to pay current bills with a little extra a month,

Paintball comes to mind. I did that last year and never really thought it was something I'd do. I was at my uncle's one day and he just asked if me and my brother wanted to go and do paintball with him and we agreed. It was pretty fun, actually. My confidence has increased with age, as well, which is rather nice. Dubbing my voice over stuff, only got into that about a year or two ago, I'm no good but it's still fun. Also finishing school. As much as it's one of those things that will inevitably happen to everyone you never really think about it ending when its all you've known for almost all your life as a kid, and it's kind of sad when it ends, or at least it was for me since my last 2-3 years were probably the best.

3-4 years ago i would never think of ever watching anime. I would laugh at people who did. I'm glad i'm not a ignorant little kid anymore

never thought i'd finish high school, tbh. I wanted to drop out since grade 10. what an absolutely boring place to be in, doing the same things over and over. being forced to spend 6 years of your life with people you don't even like. it was like a jail.

Never thought I'd eat microwaved bacon.

as a child: small, asthmatic, nonathletic, weak, extremely smart- expected to become a doctor and hated physical exercise, baby faced

now: large, where did the asthma go?, athletic (well, an athletic 300lbs... D-Line), strong, still smart- doing new construction plumbing because I love the digging/exercise, bearded beast

I seem to have gone in the other direction there...
