I always want to go back to the old days , to my childhood life exactly. But we all know that we can't go back to the past. Until this challenge Getting To Know You More Challenge: When I Was A Kid created by @bmjc98 gives us an opportunity to mesmerize our childhood memories so I don't miss the chance to join and to share my colorful childhood life.
Here is some of my fantastic memories when I was a kid.
When I was a kid;
My lunch is always a hotdog Hotdog and boiled egg in school
I remember before that my mom always said to me that eating hotdog and egg gives you a perfect score because of its shape. And I believe to her so I always end up telling to my mother that I want hotdog and egg as my lunch.
I don't want to be late in school
As much as possible before I always want to be the first one who arrive at school. There are times that if I got late in our flag ceremony, I end up crying because I thought that being late is a crime that time.
I much prefer to play Teks and Pogs rather than playing dolls
I hate playing dolls before because I'm so scared to it. I always thought that all doll is like Chuckie and Anabelle. Because most of my cousins are boys, we tend to play Pogs and Teks back then. I remember that I always save my money to buy those stuff and my mom was got angry to me because Everytime she buys me dolls, I always end up giving it to my little cousin.
I've experienced some of the punishments in school
Because I'm so talkative since then especially when my seatmate is my friends, I've experienced punishments like;
→face the wall for three hours
→squat with ten books in each hand
→ writing " Hindi na po ako mag-iingay, promise" in ten pages of paper back to back.
→Sweeping the whole campus
Even that I experienced those punishment, I can say that my elementary days is so memorable yet exciting for me. It's one of the best part of my childhood memories.
I always pretend to be sleeping at noon
I know that I'm not the only one doing this. I really don't want to sleep at noon before because I much prefer playing with my cousins. But my mom always forces me to sleep so I just pretending because I don't also want to be hit by a hanger or flying slippers. But now, I regret not sleeping before because my height remains just like a kid😅
I always wear colorful hair clip
Yes, I am a girly since then. My favorite color is pink and I always buy colorful clips for my hair. Everyday is a colorful hair for me. I remember that some of my classmates laugh at me because according to them that I am like a decor because I'm so colorful but I don't care because it's my style.
I want to be a fashion designer
It's my childhood dream.When I was a kid, I love drawing dresses because for me it's a high-class dream. I also cut out magazines with a dress and always watching fashion show while telling my mom that I wanna be like her someday. But unfortunately, as time passes by I think that being a fashion needs a lot of passion and motivation. But until now I do appreciate fashion designing but I think that its not suitable for me instead it's just a childhood dream.
I always end up crying whenever I saw an ambulance and police car
When I was a kid I really thought an ambulance is a vehicle only for a dead person so whenever I saw an ambulance I'm crying because I thought there is someone who died. On the other hand, I cried when I saw a police car because my brother always tease me that a policeman will get me because I'm so stubborn. And I believe on him and whenever I saw a police car, I always said "Don't arrest me, I will behave myself starting tomorrow but let me play now". Every time I remember that , I always laughed at myself because I'm so stupid on believing on my brother.
I always give food to an earthworm
My mom told me that when I was a kid, I always give food to an earthworm because I thought that they are tired on crawling. I even said to them that they don't need to crawl because I will supply them food every day. I don't know why I'm doing that before maybe because I always saw an earthworm in front of our house or maybe I am concern to them a lot.
I don't want to take a picture
Every time I saw a camera before, I always hide to my father's back because I don't want to take a picture. When I was a kid, I've found it so annoying because I need to smile here and there. Whenever we go or whatever I eat , my mom insisted to take a photo of mine but I really don't want because I know that she will do that again if I smile. Almost all of my pictures when I was a kid is fierce look because I don't really want to smile.
We can't deny that childhood is one of the best part of everyone's life. In this phase of life, we can experience the first failure and even our first success. Me as a kid before, I can say that I do things that is both good and bad and I'll never regret all of that because it is my stepping stone on what I am today. When we are still a kid, we often say that we want to be an adult but now that we are an adult already, we want to go back to the times that we are still a kid. Being a kid is one of the priceless moment of my life because I have no problems during that time. Nevertheless , we should enjoy our life since the beginning.
