My life has changed so much in the past couple of years. My family keeps posting pictures of when I was young, and it just brings memories of who I use to be. I think that between the age of of 12 and 22, you change drastically. You go from being a kid to an irrational, moody teenager to a sophisticated early 20 year old. Well, hopefully you are more sophisticated!
My ideas of fun have also changed.
From ages 12-14, I loved sitting in my room and reading books. I would go to the library once a week and grab a tower of books to read. Among my favorite authors was Nicholas Sparks. Cry much?
My social skills were still pretty under developed. I could barely talk to boys, and I didn’t have a lot of friends.
From ages 14-17, I would run around between band, cross country, UIL, and clubs’ practice. I loved being outside of my house. Hated being with my parents, so I became super involved in extra curricular activities!!!
At 17, I wanted to hang out with my friends, and I probably did more outside of school activities, but all the college and scholarship applications, on top of part time work and AP/IB final projects and exams got in the way.
From 18-22, college and graduate school brought new memories! IHOP midnight runs, late night studying at the library, risk battles during the summer, pool picnics. It was an awesome time, and I already miss it!
Now, post-school, my days of fun consist of hanging out on the couch, web surfing. I know it sounds boring, but it’s so low key and relaxing. Just the thing I need after a hectic work week. It’s not boring! It’s awesome!!!
So what do you do for fun?
