specific stories I'm a fan of include

tropes present in my life include

  • Big Eater: My parents have often accused me of being this, and my family's pets would probably eat even more if we let them.
  • Big, Friendly Dog: My family's dog is medium-sized compared to other dogs I've seen and isn't likely to knock someone over, but otherwise this trope describes her perfectly.
  • The Bully: I was picked on by several over the course of my school years
  • Cats Are Mean: Actually, my family's cats are pretty nice to us, but that doesn't stop them from brutally killing any mice who come to our house.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: me
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In my elementary school years, I frequently retaliated against the aforementioned bullies by physically assaulting them.
  • A Dog Ate My Homework: My family's dog actually did eat my sister's homework, but thankfully she was able to save a piece to convince her teacher of this.
  • Fear of Thunder: My dog has this
  • Hates Being Touched: At my elementary school, there were students who were afraid of even so much as being tapped on the shoulder. I found this weird and funny, so I chased them with my hand outstretched, ready to touch touch them on the shoulder or arm. Looking back at it now, I must say I'm embarrassed by my younger self.
  • Homeschooled Kids: One of my cousins
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: I used too feel this way in school. I now have a couple of friends and don't feel lonely anymore.
  • The '90s and New Tens: My childhood years
  • No Sense of Personal Space: One of my cats has a hillarious tendency to lean really hard against me.
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: I've been this from time to time.
  • Shrinking Violet: There were periods in my life when I was an example of this (despite being male) but I'm mostly over it now.
