A Blast From the Past
March 22, 2019
Remember the toys we played with or shows/movies we used to watch when we were younger? Remember the good old days when we didn’t have to worry about AP classes and studying for the SAT? We had it really good during our elementary school years when all we cared about was playing Webkinz and collecting Silly Bandz.
Some of the most popular shows throughout elementary/middle school were; Drake and Josh, Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Wizards of Waverly Place, Icarly, and Big Time Rush. After school we would go home and watch all these shows without having a care in the world, these were the times when we were living our best lives without any responsibilities.
We would all brag about how many games we had for our Nintendo DS’s and I remember me and my friends would play with our devices for hours. My cousin and I loved to play Super Mario Brothers and Littlest Pet Shop on ours. Besides playing with our DS, kids would also play computer games like Moshi Monsters, Club Penguin, and Poptropica. Let’s not forget about Wii Sports.
The best part about elementary school that we didn’t have in middle school or now in high school was recess. Recess was everybody’s favorite subject if they had to choose. Once that bell rang everyone ran outside with their goldfish crackers and fruit roll-ups either to the playground or to the handball court to challenge the current winner or even on the blacktop to play an intense game of four square.
Another memorable event we would always have in elementary school that had everyone so excited was the annual book fair. I personally remember when I would always ask my parents for money to spend it on the dumbest things they sold like the smelly erasers, highlighters, glitter pens, Smencils and best of all the chocolate calculators.
Let’s snap back to reality, now that we’re in high school we have more important things to worry about like really hard tests, applying to colleges, staying in shape for sports, and other actual responsibilities that we never had before. But even still let us not forget the good times that brought us to where we are now and made us who we are today.
