11 Things You Forgot About From Your Childhood That You Wish You Had Now

There are so many things that I miss from my childhood! But I hardly ever realize how many awesome things we had until I start thinking about it. And you're lying if you say you don't miss at least one of these.

11 Things You Forgot About From Your Childhood That You Wish You Had Now

Those cool beads that hung in a doorway

Oh yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Everyone wanted to look as cool as Britney and there is no doubt in my mind...that we didn't. I went through numerous sets of these and each one ended in a tangled mess of beads.

An awesome phone that looked like lips

I wanted one of these so badly, ever since I saw it on Full House. I thought it was the coolest thing ever, you know before cellphones were in every kid's hands.

Inflatable furniture

I'm not sure why, but these were so cool back in the day. And can you imagine how much easier it would be to get your own place if they still were? Like, don't worry mom I can get my own furniture!

The infamous Easy-Bake Oven

These things were the bomb! And sometimes I consider getting one again since maintenance requests seem to keep being ignored.

These totally not creepy ice cream pops.

When I heard the music from the ice cream truck, I know one of these was going to be in my possession very soon. I wish so badly that they sold these things at the grocery store, even if the flavor of the gum balls only last .02 seconds.

The I Spy computer games

When we had a free day in our computer class, you can bet your bottom dollar that I was playing one of these games. But let's be real, my favorite was I Spy Spooky Mansion because that's what all the cool cats were playing.

Bop It

You're lying if you say you didn't have a slight addiction to this game. You likely had a mini heart attack each time you messed up to. But that didn't keep you from trying again.

Milky gel pens

I used to love these things. If you had these things in class you were basically the queen of 4th grade, let's be real.

Water ring games

There's really not much to say about these. Such a simple thing but so amusing.

A super snazzy Lite-Brite

Forget those marquee inspired light boxes that are so popular now! You could do anything with a Lite-Brite!

A amazing View-Master

This was the O.G. virtual reality, people! I remember being so amazed by these. It was like I was actually standing on Main Street in Disneyland.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
