I recently cleaned out my bedroom and found many things from when I was little. I stumbled upon all the elementary school pictures from picture day and found it funny how everyone was either smiling from ear to ear or looked like they were caught off guard. Those were the good days filled with juice boxes, monkey bars and goldfish crackers.
So for this post i decided I was going to talk about childhood and remember what it was like to be stress free and have no sense of time was.
Recess. That one little word would get everyone in the class jumping up and down in there seats.That was the time when you could run around the playground, use the monkey bars, and see how high up you can go on the swing. School was not pressuring at all, the most worried you would get is when you were deciding who was going to be it during tag.
Nap time, was also one of the highlights because you got to sleep in the middle of the day and when you woke up there was a snack for you. At the time of nap time most kids would make a fuss about it because they don’t want to go to sleep and stop having fun. But when you think about it now, nap time sounds great. I mean who wouldn’t want to have an hour of the day to just lay down and get some rest.
There was also so much free time that wasn’t filled up with hours of homework,working, or studying. That’s why it felt like time wasn’t running out because there really was no sense of time.
When some people are asked if they can be any age. I believe they choose childhood because of all this.
