When our mama sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

I was mentioned by @Corpsekunno in her recent article, which is "Nostalgic Memories From The Past: When I was Younger" and she wanted me to participate too. And she's also right. I don't have any new ideas about what to write about my new article. My mind is completely blank or what they call writer's block. Thanks to her, I finally have a new topic to write about. And it's an interesting topic too.
Enough with the chit chats and here's my entry of "When I was a Kid"
Now playing: "I'm Just A Kid" by Simple Plan
When you're spending everyday on your own
And here it goes....
I'm just a kid and life is a nightmare
As I grew older, I found myself reminiscing about the happy and adventurous days of my childhood. When I watch children playing games that we used to play when we were their age, it makes me nostalgic. Knowing that, because they grew up in a generation where everything revolved around technology, it's becoming increasingly rare to see children playing and running around outside.
I always sneak in when I see Lola preparing ice candy to sell, and I occasionally assist her in creating ice candy. Because of the weariness from playing outside, I remember having some water every time I go home. Even if it's still half frozen, I always take one ice candy from the freezer. I'll smuggle the ice candy into my hips, between the garters of my shorts, regardless of how chilly it is, and then smuggle the ice candy out the window. For easy access, I always put the ice candy in the window. When I need to get back to my friends, I can easily grab it. I always use the backdoor because no one will notice if I slip an ice candy in there. Lmao
I guess I don't have a cousin that I haven't had a fight with. All of my cousins had a fight with me already lol. I admit, I really am a super duper maldita little girl before (until know) hahha kidding. I always had a fight with my cousins and mostly we fight over small things, uhm, you know, kids arguing over small things. This cousin of mine wore my slippers, I have no idea that she's wearing it because I've been looking for it for couple of minutes already. Then my other cousin told me that this cousin of mine wore my slippers, so I immediately went to her to get my slippers because I badly wanna play with my other cousins too and they're playing "Takyan". I told her that I want my slippers back because I wanna play "Takyan" and she said that I should get her a slipper first in exchange for my slippers. I said "go get it by yourself and give me back my slippers" she didn't listen to me and I was so pissed because I wanna play Takyan already but I don't have slippers. Out of frustration I forcedly grab my slippers in her feet but I couldn't take it off because she locked it with her toes. Me, a hot headed little girl is so mad already and without hesitation I punched her in her face. I didn't feel sorry though and I didn't even regret punching her, I was surprised when she fights back and grab my hair. And that's the time I already in a berserk mode. I grab my slippers and slap it in her face. And yes, that's how maldita I was before.
I was so dumb before. I was fooled by my older cousin. We were playing "Luto-Lutoan" and he's the one who owns a barbeque stand. He was selling barbeque and the money was guava leaves. I want to buy a barbeque too, but I don't have the money. I'm too lazy to get guava leaves from our neighbor's tree, and I'm also scared because they will get mad at me if they see me climbing on their guava tree. So, my cousin told me that if I really want some money (leaves), then I should buy the money that he has. I told him that I only had 10 pesos and he said it was okay and he gave me 20 guava leaves for 10 pesos. Ugh. Dumbass me.
If you ask me how competitive I was before, I will tell you. I'm more competitive than you think. I owned thousands of rubber bands and defeated everyone. Most of them were boys. I am one of the boys too. Like, most of my playmates were all boys. I also play "Pogs" and other games that played by boys.
It was my aunt's wedding and I was one of the flower girls. It was held at a resort because it was a beach wedding. It was my first time swimming in a pool and I was so very ignorant. I saw lots of kids trying the slides, and I asked the random kid that I met at the pool if it was deep, and he said it was not. So, out of curiosity and also, my first time in a pool. I climbed the stairs and went to the slide. At the top, I saw my cousin sitting at the edge of the pool. I thought of impressing her and bragging that I tried the slide. So I sat and slipped. When I finally hit the water, I was shocked because it was so freaking deep. The first thing I thought was that the random boy had just lied to me. I don't know how to swim. I tried to reach the edge where my cousin was sitting, but she didn't notice me. I really thought I was gonna die at that time. I thought to myself, "So, I guess it's the end". Then I saw a man running towards me. He lent his feet to me so that I could grab them. When I finally grabbed his feet, he pulled me closer to the edge. I was so thankful to that man. He owes my life. Sadly, I don't remember him. I didn't even see his face clearly and I didn't have any idea who he was. I consider him my guardian angel, my life saver.
Unfortunately, not all childhood memories are cheerful and fun. There are some aspects of my childhood that I'd like to forget about. A dark memories that keeps on bugging me until now.
I was told when I get older
All my fears would shrink
But now I'm insecure
And I care what people think
