Adulthood vs ChildhoodThursday, May 19, 2016
As a kid, there were always things that my parents or other adults did that I found strange. I wondered why any of them would do that, think like that, etc. And now that I think about it, I'm turning exactly into them. I find myself doing those things, liking those things, etc.
1. Water: Kool-Aid, Sprite, and Hawaiian Punch were my go to drink. I never understood why adults would order water... I mean it's tasteless. But now that's all I order
2. Walks: My mom would always bug me to go on walks with her, but I found it so boring. I would rather spend my day watching cartoons or going on the computer. However, now I love just going to walks taking in all the nature and beauty. They're espically beautiful at sunrise/sunset with my boyfriend
3. Gym Shoes: I never understood why adults would wear gym shoes with jeans. I thought my shiny red boots were ten times cuter. Now I love to just sport some jeans with a pair of Nike's
4. Clothes: Every Christmas I would put down probably ten different toys on my wish list. I was devastated when I received clothes as a present. Now, I'm ecstatic if you buy me a new shirt, jeans, etc.
5. Calm Music: Back in the day, annoying pop songs were my jam. However, now I'd much rather listen to mellow soothing music. My favorites at the moment are "Then" by Brad Paisley and " Over My Head" by the Fray
6. Television: I remember watching hour and hours of television. I couldn't go without my Arthur, Malcolm in the Middle, Hope and Faith, Lizzie McGuire, 8 Simple Rules....and the list goes on and on. Now I can count on my hands how many television shows I stay up to date with.
7. Photography: Whenever my mom would mention the word photos, I would hide and cringe. I would do anything to get out of posing for a picture. Now I love taking photos.....not necessarily of me but of other people/things
8. Mansions: I swore I would live in a gigantic house with many, many rooms and a swimming pool. I realize now that that's probably not all that realistic.
What are your differences as an adult in comparison to as your childhood views?
