When I was about 6, I had to do these writing exercises to correct my vision (I didn't do those for kindergarten, lol). I would draw something like a (^) but larger and call it a triangle, and my parents must have laughed or something but they played along. I really thought that triangles looked like that... When I drew an actual triangle saying I was drawing a shirt my parents told me to draw more of those, but even after I realized what triangles really looked like, it still took me a while to stop believing they looked like (^) before I drew the first correct triangle.

I used to believe in space aliens, ghosts, gods and all sorts of other religious, supernatural and magical things.

Now that I am no longer a child, I do not.

When mom left me at neighbours and ran errands and came back, she used to say
-I know you were up to some mischief
and when I asked how in the world she knew she said
-Because I have a special wristwatch and I can see you there.
I used to believe that, so much so that I remember sitting like stone, motionless one day. When she came back and said the exact same thing, I understood the whole scheme.

As a teenager, I thought "The Ibid" was a famous book -- so many footnotes quoted it!

I must be paranoid because i have thought my whole life that evryone in the world could buy this little device. The device would allow you to spy on anyone by speaking a name into a small microphone. Once you would speak the name it would immediatly show what that person was doing that very moment! I always thought that evryone could buy it except for me. Apparently i wasnt aloud to spy on anyone. i was always scared to get undressed for bed or take a shower for afraid people were watching me. I still believe this....

When I was little I used to beleive that we were all fisher price toys controlled by giants. That they would play with us and that is how we lived. When we were asleep I thought that the giants stopped playing with us and when we were dead was when they threw away the toys. I always looked for them in the sky and I would look behind my to see if I could catch them picking me up.

When I had just learned to write and back when the good old NES was in style, I wanted to break a world record. In barely legible handwriting and spelling, I tried to write on a piece of paper, "I played 100000000 video games in one day, is that a world record?" I then folded it up and threw it in my mailbox (of course). When asked about it by my mom, I said it was my friend Josh. She went along with it, of course. Love my parents.

When I was around ten, I seriously believed that everything JK Rowling wrote was true.

I actually wrote a letter to Hagrid asking him to take me to Hogwarts!

Needless to say, when the letter didn't come I was depressed for about a week.

And nobody could understand why!

At one point as a small child, I was convinced that my cheerios were alive. I loved the cereal but couldn't bring myself to eat it. I would picture what it would be like to be a cheerio - living with a huge family in a box, where you would never be lonely. Then one day, you and some of your siblings would come tumbling and crashing into a bowl, where cold milk would make you feel freezing and soggy. Terrified, you would watch as a gigantic scoop came at you like a spear, and you were sent into a wet disgusting chamber (otherwise known as the human mouth) where you would be crushed into bits - a horrific death. I had to convince myself that it was ok . . . that cheerios were meant to be eaten, that being chewed up didn't harm them at all, but merely caused them to multiply, and go on a fantastical journey into my digestive tract. I was very odd in ways.

I have two sisters. When we were little we believed that there were loads of children who lived in the cupboard under the stairs, and that we were the lucky ones....

When I was like 9, my friend and i believed we were magic like the people in Harry Potter. I used to think I was Hermione Granger, and i wrote hermione granger on all my school supplies.

My friend and i used to pretend to put spells on eachother and put eachother in 'trances' where we would draw Harry Potter scars on eachother's foreheads.

we really believed we could control the wind.

I used to write letters for Harry Potter on my windowsill for Harry potter for hedwig to take to him.

I was disappointed when it didn't happen, and i didn't get my hogwarts acceptance letter :(.

From when I was about 6 to the age of about 9, I really believed I could make any boy fall in love with me. I posessed the power, I just never used it. I thought it might have been unfair for the boy.

Hence not having a boyfriend until I was 14. Not even a childhood one!

I used to think that I was a robot made especially for my mom and dad, and that eventually something would happen to me that would prove it (I would get cut and not bleed, or bleed the wrong color, etc.) I guess it was because of that tv show that was on when I was little about the girl robot.
