Writer's Block: When I Was Young

Well I'm still a kid, so it doesn't really matter much. Being a teen still counts as a kid. But during my kindergarten days, I missed my 20 minute nap time, where we lied down on the dusty rug and pretended we sleep. The teachers ate lunch then, so they wanted their quiet. I could NEVER fall asleep during nap time. But then again, who could? I'd study the rugged carpet and make a stew (fake. one you cant eat) out of the things I found on the ground. There'd be bits of paper, staples and dried bits of paste in it. I didn't miss the stew part, but I miss the part where I could always occupy myself with anything I could do. I never seemed to be bored, I always ran and played with the other kids, shared secrets that were pointless, and never thought about what other people thought about me. I had the highest confidence and self- esteem as a kid. But as I got older, as EVERYONE gets older, they grow more self- conscious and aware. I guess, that the part I issed most, where nothing mattered but having fun. The homework was also a little easier back then.
What do you miss most about being a kid?
