I started electronics at 8 in my room with a pile of plastic-enclosed snap circuits. Flash forward to a year and a half a go: I went to radioshack and discovered that real electronic parts did not come in giant plastic snap parts. Then it was only a matter of [short] time before Soldering, the 555 timer, the 4000 series Digital Logic Chips, PICAXE microcontollers, and then BASIC were under my helm. Now, I study Arduino and Many programming languages while I try to make an electronics living on $12/wk allowance.
