Until I was six I used to believe that presents from friends and relatives appeared by magic before the giver's eyes, as well as that friends and relatives had super x-ray vision.

When I was around 8 or so, I made a poster with a list of instructions and tried to give it to my family. It said to make 2 copies of the poster and give them to someone else until everyone on the planet had one. They were then to report to the North Pole the following weekend (as in the weekend after I made the poster).

Once everyone was there, I planned on somehow opening a portal to a new universe, which would also have new laws of physics written by me (I had this image in my head of me typing these laws onto a computer). Among the laws were that no one could ever die and every fictional universe ever created would be made real. Once we arrived in the new universe, I planned on ruling over it as President.

When I was young, the "Planet Of The Apes" film series was popular and I was into them in a big way. I used to think that I was the only "real" person on the planet and that all others were really gorillas like in the movies! They simply wore human costumes whenever I was around. Of course they were smart enough to know when I would be watching t.v. or movies, so they put on their costumes when they knew I would be watching. When they were alone and away from me, the masks came off.

I used to (and still do a little bit) that I was the only person who actually existed. That everyone else was just an illusion in my mind and that my whole exsistence might just be a dream. I could actually be in a coma or something like that. Then the Matrix came out and made it worse.

When I was young, I was blessed with a very good memory. At 5 I was able to remember and recite poems, songs, and stories after only hearing them once. I could play checkers with the best of them. Because of this gift, I believed that I was not of this world. I believed that I would not grow old like people of earth. I believed that when I got big, I would be stronger than people of earth. I believed that when I got bigger, I would have special powers, like closing my eyes and seeing what was happening somewhere else. I also believed that when I got big, I would be able to leave my bed and go outside and play. Then, I turned 6!

You know how when you face someone, your right hand is where their left hand is? Well, when I was little, I didn't have the sense to determine that because they were facing me, their left hand was where my right was. I thought I was different because I had a different right hand.

When I was little I thought that my life was a tv show and everyone around me were actors. I thought I was the star, and when I was alone in a room, I would narrate what was going on. I believed this for years, and sometimes I still think there's a hidden camera in my office or bedroom.

(the bathroom had cameras too!!!)

I used to believe for the longest time that my brother and I were adopted. I thought we were really twins who had magic powers and some kind of destiny waiting for us once we got old enough. My mom never could convince me that they didn't adopt me and were lying about it because they couldn't tell us yet.

In 3rd grade, I began reading the "Unicorns of Balinor" series. From that point on, I believed that my friend, Molly, and myself were truly unicorn princesses who'd been sent to this dimension to protect the Earth from evil. We even believed that we'd have dreams of "Atalanta," like the main character did in the series.

Then, when I was in 4th grade, my friends and I used to believe that we "owned pet unicorns." We would even name them! Sometimes we even held races where we'd run across the field during recess, trying to out-canter the other. Later that year, we ended up getting into a huge fight about who owned the most unicorns, when in reality all we were doing was listing numerous names that we liked for a pet. (We got to somewhere over 400 altogether! Crazy, ain't it?) Haha, childhood dreams...

When I was about seven or eight years old, I believed that I was a dragon. When I was angry at someone at school, I would roar and growl at them. I also used to bite and I'd pretend that my jacket was my dragon wings and I'd pretend to fly.

Even though now I know that I'm a human, I'm still obsessed with dragons.

I used to think that I was "part cat" when I was growing up, and me and my cousin used to play catwoman and batman. Lol. It was alot of fun, actually. My parents still tease me for thinking that I was part cat, and I insisted it was true until I was about 9 or 10 years old. I told everybody, and today I wish i didn't. I am so embarassed! I even used to eat CAT FOOD! It actually doesn't really taste that bad. I really like cats, still, and we have 3 of them! Lol.

I was completely sure I was going to be accepted into Hogwarts when I turned 11. I acted out scenes in which I got my letter; arriving on the Hogwarts Express; and meeting all of my new wizarding friends. I'm 14 now and It's still the only wish I have. I wish it was real...

I used to believe that a stranger would kidnap me from my bedroom in the night so I made sure that my parents opened the curtains of the tv room so they could see when the stranger came with the ladder to climb up and take me.

I used to believe that when I slept over at my grandmother's house (on the 4th flour of a apartment building), Superman would come one day and give me his powers so I could take over his job as the young Superboy!
What do you want? I was 6 years old!
