Okay I’m going to cheat on this and give quite a few. I was blessed with a great childhood and I feel like typing some of the stuff I still remember so I can share it with you guys. I was able to do all the things that I loved and I had family and friends who loved me. There were definitely some dark moments (hello getting bullied) but I think the good definitely outweighs the bad. :)
Choreographing to Disney songs and making my poor siblings dance.
Going to swimming lessons and letting go of the balloon during the graduation ceremony so I ended up being the only kid not letting go of one during the finale.
Dancing every year till god knows what age at my dad’s company Christmas company coz I was boss like that and I earned money from it.
Pretending to be a weather girl on a trip to Tagaytay and pronouncing Mindanao as Minadao (I still get teased over this).
Endlessly begging for that Simba lunch kit that every kid I knew had but me. Well not really but I had to exaggerate to get it, which I didn’t.
Going swimming at our neighbors pool. My getting to go or not was decided upon by the top song on the music countdown that day.
Dancing the “rain dance” on the poolside until it rained and what do you know, it did. Too bad we had to get out of the pool as soon as it did.
Watching Little Women and crying buckets on Beth’s death scene. A few years later, we had to watch it at school and I stopped watching towards the same scene to prevent further teenage embarrassment.
Our car getting hit by a train while we were jamming to our brand spanking new “Ang TV” cassette tape. We survived, the tape didn’t. DAMNIT.
Getting boxes full of Hello Kitty iced tea from Japan and refusing to drink it because well, the packaging was cute. For some reason I can clearly remember what it tastes like.
Pretending to be a DJ and playing Alanis Morissette’s album Jagged Little Pill and Madonna’s Ray of Light song again and again. I now feel bad for my 18 year old cousin who had to pretend to be a caller for a 8 year old’s all day radio show.
Saving all my favorite music videos on a tape whenever it comes on on MTV.
So yeah there’s tons more but I don’t wanna bore you. Maybe one day when we meet up I’ll tell you guys more. HAHAHA :)
