I may be 21 and considered an adult, but I can't help but wish sometimes that I could go back to being a kid. Let's be honest though, don't we all? Here's a list of what I miss about the good ol' days!

Even though I often think about my childhood memories, I am excited to start the next part of my life that we call adulthood. I look forward to seeing what this new chapter has in store for me but I will also never forget the childhood that shaped me into who I am today.
