Hey everyone 🙂
I'm currently 19, graduated from high school last year, and now working in IT after finishing a 1 year college program. I grew up with a couple of gaming consoles and my own desktop, but for the most part I wouldn't say I became addicted in any way to electronics until late middle school. My main thing would be watching my toy boats roll down a massive (or in reality as seen by an adult, a very small) waterfall, and creating coastal villages in my sandbox for the purpose of seeing how they stand both the test of time and the real life weather elements 🙄 I did have Selective Mutism (SM), which was what really set me apart from other kids when I was younger. My parents took me to a psychologist a few times for it, and I remember her saying that I'd eventually grow out of it. Some of my verbal/mental barriers I'm still working on breaking, but I have to say though that she was definitely right on what she said.
High school was where things really started to take a turn for me, but that'll be a whole thing on its own.
Anyways, glad to become a part of the community 🙃
