    - finishing zelda a link to past without saving or dying during my one day suspension. i knocked out the school bully. poor guy assumed i'm your normal suburban videogame asian nerd.

    - i found out my chemistry teacher tried inhaling pure cocoa powder to get a high back in the 70's. he also taught me also that eating dark chocolate helps you study.

    - still a virgin. i only cared about what games i wanted to play on the weekend. i remember telling my GF i was too busy on a weekend. i was a completist gamer. i had my hands full with chrono trigger. i had a plan on how to maximize my stats.

    - culture shock was wearing off. its been three years since i moved here. seeing students spit at teacher's face without facing a beating of their lives didn't shock me as much. somewhat. white peeps no longer looked alike. the girl next door didn't look like the boy next door. if this was spring 93, i'd tell you all white peeps looked alike. i was fluent in french by then as well. i remember the first time i tried solving math problems in a foreign language lol etc.

    I was two years old, and might have been getting sent home from preschool, if I was there yet (I might not've gone until I was 3). I got in trouble quite a bit at my first preschool.

    It's a year after I graduated high-school, working 2 jobs. Just finished rebuilding the engine in my Sunbird GT Turbo (which will cause me even more headaches in a few months and will be traded in by next year). Recently broke up with my highschool gf, feeling free.

    1996? I've started my final year of primary school and feel that I have too much homework (an hour a week? LOL). For my birthday my family has just gotten our first computer and my life changes. I discover the wonderful world of computer gaming, starting with Hellbender before moving to the epic and never-forgotten X-Wing vs TIE Fighter. Before the year is out we will get dial-up internet and stop buying encyclopedias. I'm still playing rugby and to my great surprise girls are not just icky and stupid but are now perplexingly interesting...

    1996? I was about four years old. My brother would be anything up to one year old, so chances are I was cleaning up after him. May have been outside 'helping' my Dad in the garage.
    Oh yeah, and my brother and I were most likely playing with some of the toy cars left here by my older brothers. Just discovered that these ones can turn into robots. Cool. We'll have some fun with these. Oh, the small yellow Beetle's legs have come off. Never mind. I'll probably reassemble it when I find him again in about ten years time :) 
    I might even know his name by then...
