11 Things I'm Going To Miss About My Childhood

Although I'm very excited about what is coming in my life, I will definitely miss what I am leaving behind

11 Things I'm Going To Miss About My Childhood
Riley Swart

With my sister going to college this year, I am beginning to see the end of my childhood. My childhood was filled with theater camp, friends, games outside, vacations, parties with other families and endless fun. Although, I can't wait for the adventures ahead of me, it's very sad to leave this part of my life behind.

1. Wearing Disney princess costumes

Lets be real, they need to make adult princess dresses. I would totally be down for that.

2. Playing games in the summers outside

Ghost in the graveyard, kick the can, mafia, frogger, the list goes on and on.

3. Having a big family Christmas, where everyone can be there

I remember sleeping by the tree with my sister to try and see Santa every Christmas.

4. Getting to wear super cute night gowns

Not only did I have princess dresses, but also princess night gowns.

5. Playing in the snow in the winter

Taking off the multitude of layers that all started dry but were inevitable soaked by snow was definitely the best part. (And a big cup of hot chocolate)

6. Having no worries in the summer

The summer was the best. My mom never worked so the days were filled with pools, friends and ice cream.

7. Going on vacations with your family and other families

Let's take a moment of silence for all of the hours of sleep not gained on these trips.

8. Not caring about what you looked like in pictures

Yes that is me in the middle. Cringe worthy, right?

9. Getting food all over your face and people think its cute

I still get food all over my face. It's just not cute anymore.

10. Having your grandparents think you're the bomb

My grandparents still love me. It's just now not everything I do is cute.

11. Going on playgrounds and not being to big

I can no longer hang off a monkey bar, but I can however hit my head while walking underneath them.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
