Things I miss

A non-exhaustive list of things I miss:

I miss school holidays when I was a kid, where I would spend two whole weeks reading Asterix or Tintin or X-Men or Phantom Comics.

I miss riding my bike around the neighbourhood for no reason other than it was something fun to do.

I miss making friends with people my parents didn’t really want me to be friends with.

I miss creating huge stories and battles with my action figures (boy dolls).

I miss wandering through the library and browsing for interesting looking books.

I miss playing Dungeons & Dragons and other roleplaying games.

I miss working on student theatre productions, and taking drugs at the opening and closing night parties (and sometimes at the parties in between).

I miss playing the guitar.

I miss volunteering in Lee Rhiannon’s office and learning how to do all the things from Alison, Susie, Jemma and Chris.

I miss living and working in a youth hostel in the Czech Republic.

I miss waiting for new episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I miss eating food before I knew how it was made.

I miss studying something week to week, a short course, a university degree, anything.

I miss having children as a regular part of my life. Life with children around contains frequent adventures, learning and lots of laughter.

I miss life without back pain.

I miss not having to budget and save money.

I miss practicing yoga every day.

I miss buying books without worrying about all the books at home I haven’t read yet.

Spread the love
