What do you miss?


I am a serious Doctor Who fan. When I think about what I miss I secretly picture the Doctor (10th incarnation plx) sweeping me away and us going slightly back in time to the 80’s-90’s and doing all.the.things.

So you wouldn’t travel through time and space to visit epic moments in history? Maybe eventually.

There are some things I wasn’t quite done with yet. So we’ll start there.

In no particular order:

  • Saturday morning cartoons

  • Riding a bike (as a kid in the summer)
If you know who I can credit for this photo plx let me know. It's quite possibly the coolest picture ever.

‘Kay, so before you start on your “Omg what a noob?! Who would ever want a bicycle shaped like a unicorn?! What a frea….!!” I would. I straight up tied jump rope to my bicycle to make it more “horse-like”. I am pretty sure I even named my bicycle horse.

I rode my bike every single danged moment I possibly could when I was a kid. Adults had cars and I had my bike. Wut? Wut?

Why don’t I get a bike now and ride it all.the.time? Well you have a point I totally should. It would still be completely amazing and rad, just not as completely amazing and rad as it was when I was kid. I am not sure I am ready for the brick wall of disappointment just yet.

  • The bliss that accompanies the ignorance and lack of responsibility of youth

stupid kid

Now I know there are some kids that are responsible and make decisions based on their future dreams and aspirations… I was not one of them.  I was balls to the wall convinced I wasn’t going to make it into adulthood. Actually, I don’t think I ever even thought that far ahead.  There was not a single care to be given. I lived life on a day to day basis.

Now, I find myself planning when I should pee for most optimal productivity. Making up for lost time much? Such.

How about you? What do you miss? Spill it.
