My growing up was more mundane I won't lie so it sounds like you had so many adventures! You have many stories to share as well!
Also that last bit reminds me of the time I answered the door to Jehovah's witnesses. I make it a point to point out that I'm Gay, I study the bible and I'm non-binary.
The moment they then make any statement like "Well we study the one true word of God" I'll literally go "Which version?" and watch them squirm.
Sadly they've never called since (I think they've written me off as a lost cause). I approach life from the mindset myself of "I will do my best to help others more needy then myself, to give charitably where I can, and live life to the full as long as my actions will not harm another"
