I don’t like to admit I procrastinate, but sometimes I do. And as always it comes back to bite. I should have wrote this already, but I didn’t, so here I am trying to beat the clock…. *smiles sheepishly*
Part two of the Getting Older Series! If you’re just seeing this post and missed the previous ones, here they are: Getting Older Series Introduction and Getting Older Part 1: Privileges Of Getting Older.
Growing Old With Memories
When you’re older, what memories do you want to recall?
Memories are such a powerful thing. It’s the little parts of time that you grasp and hide in your heart forever. It’s also the snippets of time that stick with you, not because you wanted them to but those memories held life changing moments.
Everyone has moments in life that seem big when they happen but not so big as time goes on. Like the day you learned to ride a bike. It was a big deal when you learned, but as time goes on, do you still run around telling people you learned how to ride a bike? Likely not (if you do, I won’t judge). However, that’s a memory your parents will forever want to recall. And the same when you have your children (if you don’t have any). On a different note, winning a championship, the way you felt when you could speak (understandably) in a foreign language, or simply meeting the friend you now deem family- are memories that you may want to keep…
Here are a few memories I’d like to recall:
That stands for Math Masters Competition (the 2 just means 2 M’s). What’s that? Previous to fourth grade, I was public schooled. So, my third grade year I participated in this event: the students from all over our county with the highest scores competed to take home the title for our school. It’s a memory I want to keep, though I didn’t win, it felt good to be considered smart. The overall experience was memorable.
~24 Hours Cross Counrty~
Yep. I’ll never forget the first time I took a cross country roadtrip. It was, unimaginable for the 10 year old me and even more bazaar to experience. See, my family is a roadtripping bunch, however my longest was only an 8 hour trip, so going 24 hours was BIG. Now *brushes shoulders* I’m a pro.
~Entering The Blogging Community~
What must I say? I’M HERE GUYS, I’VE ARRIVED!! July 25th will forever be a monumental date. Okay, maybe that’s exaggerated, but it’s special now.
~”Before I’m older” Memories I Want To Make~
…before I’m “older” (more on this in part 3)
- I want to visit the Grand Canyon
- This sounds weird, but I want to go to the mall and get at least one thing from 10 stores. I know, weird….
- I want to do a scavenger hunt in target. Once my brother did a such thing, and it was pretty cool and very funny.
I’m curious, what memories do you want to recall?
What memories do you hope to make?
