Every time I get an idea for a blogpost, I write it down for those days when I have zero inspiration. My list of topics is quite long but today I wasn’t feeling any of it. I wanted to do something different. Then, while I was scrolling through Tumblr, I found this simple picture and somehow it clicked!
I’m a 90’s kid. I was born in 1993 so I had so much fun writing this post, it was like taking a stroll down memory lane.
10 Things I Miss From My Childhood
1 | Those years when my biggest concern was picking which doll I wanted to play with. I guess we all miss it, right?
2 | Hanging out with my friends almost every day and believe we would all be best friends forever thanks to our friendship bracelets.
3 | Riding a bike. Because, let’s admit, I don’t know how to do it now – I know, it’s embarrassing. I had a cool Dragon Ball’s bike that my godmother gave me for my birthday.
4 | That retro red phone we used to have at our old apartment. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work anymore but I’ve kept it as a little treasure. How cool is it?
5 | My grandma used to have a yard next to her house with some animals, a couple of dogs and lots of cats – including a friendly kitten who used to sleep in my lap. I also remember being so carefree back then…
6 | Watching cartoons for hours. My favorites were Doraemon, Franklin The Turtle, The Magic School Bus. And two portuguese shows: Jardim da Celeste and Batatoon, and surprisingly I still remember some of the lyrics haha!
7 | Getting a free candy every time I went to the little grocery store with my grandma. Btw, do you remember push pops?
8 | Jamming to the Spice Girls’ biggest hit, obviously! And singing/dancing the Macarena song haha
9 | Building houses for my dolls with whatever I found around the house, playing Tazos, the red light green light game and those tiny Polly Pockets. I still had so much fun without Internet!
10 | Collecting gel pens. There was nothing more satisfying than adding a new cool color or scent to my collection. I had a whole case filled with those and felt so cool! That was when my stationery obsession started.
What about you, what do you miss from your childhood?
