One of my favorite memory growing up was volunteering in elementary school. Why would anyone volunteer during their summer vacation? Well you see, the school that I attended had their grades rotate summer vacation. I was a 4th grader that year. The reason I volunteered during my summer was because of a crush. Yes, I signed my vacation away because I wanted to see my crush and because we rotate summer vacation that made it possible for me to see him. Now that I think about it, it was so silly. What did you expect? That’s not what was memorable, no, it was what I discovered that summer.
My family and I moved to the United States when I was 6 years old. I started school in first grade. I didn’t get to experience kindergarten like every other kid. I don’t know the order of the rainbow. I still don’t do this day. I just color it the way I want it. The first time when I was introduced to kindergarten was when I volunteered that summer. I found out that they had this thing as, ” snack time”.
I found it so amazing! Who came up with this idea? Forget the crush, because I only saw a glimpse of him in the morning. I loved snack time every day. That was the best summer I had volunteering.
Thinking back that was when I was introduced to Red Vines. Red Vines is different from Liquorice. I am sorry but Red Vines is better.
It’s sad how time flies so fast. When we were younger we wanted to grow up fast. Now that were older, we wish we could slow time down and stay young. Well at least that’s what I think for myself. It’s almost the end of 2018 already and I feel as if it flew by too fast. I did not make enough memorable memories. I wish I could of done more and given more, spend more time with the ones I love and take more pictures; not selfies.
Even when we know that we take time for granted, we still do it. We get caught up in life and everything else. We forget about how precious time is until it’s too late, until the end of the year. I am guilty of that.
Definitely acknowledge that fact and better yourself from it. I will. I’ll spend more of my time adding value to my life. I will smile more. I will laugh more. I will take more pictures that are not selfie! I will blog more. It’s easy to be lazy. It’s a challenge to blog every day.
Whats one of your favorite memory? Do you take time for granted too even when you try not to? It’s okay because we are human and we are constantly learning and making mistakes. What will you do to add more value to your life? What are you not doing enough that you will be doing more of? I challenge you to challenge yourself to end your 2018 more valuable than before. Okay?~
