In early highschool people called me goth. I never tried to be, I just really liked wearing black and was too socially awkward to smile a whole lot.
Late highschool I was friends with just about everybody, took digital art classes outside of school and ended up getting voted “Most artistic” my senior year.
I always had really good grades without giving any shits so my teachers had mixed feelings towards me.

That’s a tough question. I was insane. No difference from now and then. :)
I literally jumped on the bus to school and started making people laugh. Oh, how much they hated me. But it was a good hate.
Learning everything at the end of the years, drinking alone and making fun of everyone who is complaining, while listening to relaxing music. Pretty cool. Now I’m more of a computer anti-stupid society bitch.

in early highschool i was pretty much still my child self, watched cartoons and was happy and laughing all the time, got really bad grades though, but had lots of friends :D, then the rest of the people started “maturing” and suddenly there was no one else who was still like me, so i became kind of a misunderstood loner… and my grades suddenly skyrocketed, everyone else was too busy with their “social lives” and trying too hard to be cool, so people assumed that i was the most mature of everyone, only because i didn’t really talk to anyone, but on the inside i was still just the kid who wanted to watch cartoons and have fun, now that i’m waaay older, i’m happy to see that people started to relax and not worry too much about their social lives and trying to be cool, and all of a sudden i had lots of friends again! i’m now 25 and still love cartoons and having fun and laughing and “being a kid”, the others not so much, but at least now they’re more relaxed and now they “get me” :)

@David, good bro. I’m 24 and I fucking love cartoons. What’s this mature thing ? I can’t help myself but say that maturity is highly overrated and censorship did it. Fuck censorship. I really can’t see any maturity wherever I go. The so called “adults” are laughing at the stupidest shit. I guess to most people “mature” means mediocre and boring. I think it means censorship and everyone knows that. :)

@Sasho, exactly! mediocre and boring is what i meant, suddenly they all tried too hard to “be adults” or “be cool” in the eyes of others who had a distorted idea of what it meant to be cool or to be an adult, just being fake to get other fakeys into thinking they were cool enough

Haha creative thread.
I was the smart ass who never did homework but aced tests because I listened in class to spite my teachers.
I was an awkward kid, not really understood by anyone but my closest friends and my direct family. Terrible at talking to girls, equally bad at talking to guys. good art student but never really put the real effort into anything, my artwork always disappointed me but Everyone else seemed to like it. Played sports off and on but usually quit mid-season because practice became more like detention than self improvement through my skewed perception. Huge computer game addict. WoW took over my junior/senior year. Never a weed smoker or a drinker really until after high school. Got a 28 on my ACT but a relatively terrible GPA.
I didn’t really have any style what so ever until late 12th grade where I became an ego maniac and dressed accordingly, with really unrefined tastes. Some of the shit I wore…..
Tried desperately to fit in but failed miserably, and only stopped trying like over a year ago (now age 21). Never could relate to others very well. In hindsight everyone was so black and white, yet at the time I saw great cOlor in everyone so it saddened me that I couldn’t gAin any popularity among my peers. So I remained in my basement venting my being through the server, Misha. As a Rogue.
