How I ruined some part of my childhood

I had a great childhood,  no doubt. I was a chatterbox kind of kid. I really don't mind that my grandmother told me 2k fairy tales all with happy endings so that I can have sweet dreams of pixies and princesses.  I was so proud when someone told me that I have a pixie nose which means a really tiny nose. After years, now I realize it was sarcasm!!!

So years ago, I was a kid. I loved stuff which was way too useless,  but I WAS A KID! I wonder how I was ruining bit of my time which could be productive.  But I was just a..... did you guess what I'm going to say?

Telling difference between me and my twin
Okay it was (still is) the worst part. Me and Noor are twins. I'm glad we have different facial faces now but a long while ago, we looked EXACTLY same. Everybody in our family and friend circle asked 236821 times the difference between me and Noori (also annoyed mum how she recognize us )

I died hard telling them that I have a beauty mark on my face and Noor doesn't. Sorry, it was of no work!

Watching Pokemon
My tv addiction!  I never missed even a single episode for 3 years in a row. I wished to have a pet like Ash had in Pokemon,  pickachuuuu!!!!

Finding gifts in meals
Cereals and Mc happy meals spoiled me. Yes, I was greedy.  Food + gifts, life couldn't be more awesome.  I had a great deal of those items mostly in card form but still was a toy or something that I loved.

Sharpen pencils
That was like a beauty contest between class fellows. I ruined my pencils and mum's money over this, I'm sorry. Girl with a beautifully sharpened pencil had GREAT respect in class.

Hoping to find real ghosts in Scooby Doo
I can count on my fingers that how many real ghosts they found. I always hoped that the ghost they've found is not fake. But I'm glad that they taught us that real monsters are humans.

Collecting stationary
Let me clear this, I had more stationary than toys. Every kind of journal,  diary,  glitter pens, colouring books,  crayons, colours and paints, sticker sheets could be found in my drawer.  I regret collecting much items than I can use. I just had a big and impressive collection and some items were totally if no use.
This could be my heaven!
Making up weird stories
Ahan, just to impress cousins and class fellows.  Mixed up with great lies (bad thing, I know but I was just a ....you guessed? ) so I could act like I know better stuff than my folks. Like telling them how a fairy's house looks like from inside or how the lady on moon gets her food. I think this is the point where myths are started!

Pinkie Promise
The most popular thing in 90s little girls. I wonder that kids still make this. All I knew was I have to keep my promise and don't break it. Else Pinkie will break me. I don't remember breaking any pinkie promise.



So many Best Friends For Life
So this word BFF dramatically screwed my Kindergarten and middle school life. New BFF every month. All we used to do as besties was to exchange handmade gifts, lunch and silly secrets. When I told my BFF that I have a crush on a boy named Kai from Beyblade cartoons, she pinkie promised me that she won't tell it to  anyone.  After all she was my BFF.


Do you remember anything from your childhood?

  1. I remember a lot from my childhood but it was totally different than yours. one I'm old enough to be your mother, possibly grandmother. I was also an only child. I told tales/lies in elementary school because of feeling inferior to the other kids and wanting to fit in. All it did was cause trouble.

  2. I never saved glitter pens or anything else for that matter. I hated it when the glitter fell off and got on my face. LOL

    You sound like you had the normal childhood and while I don't agree it spoiled you, it sure does sound like you had fun growing up! :)

  3. Thes are some pretty cool tidbits from your life. Very neat! I always wondered what it would be like to be a twin - and now I'm married to someone who is a twin! :)

  4. So you and Noor are sisters, and twins to boot... how wonderfull. I have an older sister, not a twin ... but people think we are twins because there is a very strong resemblance to each other.
    By the way.. you do have a very small nose.

  5. I think it's great that you thought having a pixie nose was an asset despite the sarcastic remarks from others. That's the way to go!

  6. Your childhood life seemed to be a great one! That is so cool that you have a twin! You guys are beautiful and yes, you do look the same in your pic.

  7. My own childhood was also pretty awesome. Okay, the being picked on in school part sucked, but the going fishing, boating, and to theme parks parts were pretty darned awesome.

  8. I used to love stationary- I'd always collect a bunch of random notebooks and then not really use them. It's a bad habit to this day!
    Agreed with the whole pinky promise thing- that's the one promise I STILL can't break!

  9. I could imagine that it was hard to assert your individuality when everyone was always putting both of you together. I'm sure that, as time has gone on, you have both excelled in your respective areas and can truly be respected as unique individuals.

  10. Oh, this makes me miss childhood even more!

  11. I remember a doll that I had that went everywhere with me. I lost her between our moves but through the magic of ebay I was able to find a replacement but it is not the same.

  12. Sounds like a pretty normal childhood to me, not that I am an expert or anything. We all wasted time when were a kid, that is part of what being a kid is. And truth be told, if you don't take some time off and enjoy life on occasion what really is the point of it even as an adult?

  13. Sounds like you had a great childhood and you had a twin. I always wanted one, thought it would be super cool.

You guys are so good, i actually loved reading this post and i think you're going to rock this blogger platform. One more thing......i am missing my childhood now ;(

  15. I was an only child so I think I was pretty spoiled. Your childhood remembers me a lot of my daughters!

  16. My childhood was almost similar but I was an only girl. I grew up with 2 brothers who were out the house by the time I was 10 so I was almost like an only child. I didn't know that you and Noor were twins. How cool is that. I've always wanted to have a twin or at least a sister I could hang out with. That's great!

  18. I have 1-yr-old twins and already can completely relate with your feelings on that one...mine aren't even identical and people still can't figure it out! But you sound like you had a huge imagination as a child. Especially the pencil sharpening-I've never heard that one before!

  19. What a great trip down memory lane. Too funny about the sharpened pencils! In my class, it was all about colored pens. Purple and green pens were instant popularity pieces.

  20. This is fun to look back on what we loved, enjoyed and thought as kids which can be very different from today as adults. I remember going to Target and feeling like I was in heaven with all the Lisa Frank stuff. I remember truly loving all the toys and things I had as a kid, everything meant something and was super special. Sometimes I'll remember an item and that feeling will wash over me. Seems like as an adult I've become desensitized a bit, but being a kid was great.

    Loved your post.

  24. I have an identical twin sister and we went through the same thing for the longest time! WE had to tell people she had a scar above her lip from an accident when we where really young and she always had the shorter hair but it still stumped people! So I feel ya! :)

  25. I had lots of pinkie swears and lots of BFF's too!

    I never watched Pokemon, I was a Sailor Moon kid!

  27. I've always wanted a twin! You sound like you had a great childhood :)

  28. I did make up stories like you did. But much sillier. When I was in elementary school, I told my friends that I had a high schooler boyfriend. When I got to high school, I saw how my male friends wouldn't possibly date a 5th grader. Now that I remember it, I think it was really, really stupid.

  29. You really did have a colorful childhood, I made up stories once in a while too, exaggerated as well. I love stationery too!

  31. I enjoyed reading about your childhood... That was so cute and you're lucky to have a twin sister.

  32. Ohhh man. To be a kid again. I was very much like you with the stationary. I LOVED writing and pens, journals,stationary and notebooks. A trip to Staples was like heaven to me!
    I used to collect my parent's junk mail and play office all of the time. We played teacher and student. I would make a fake journal entry and then my sister would be the teacher and reply to my journals and fix my spelling mistakes.
    I love what you said about Scooby Doo.. It taught you that all real monsters are human- isn't that the truth!!?
    Good post today Areeba, you brought me way back to the good ol' days..

  33. Loving your stationery collection! Those are great memories. :) Even the ones that don't seem so great teach us something important usually! I would never go back to childhood though... college and beyond has been awesome. I wasn't fond of the lack of independence!

  34. These are the cutest pictures, I love the stationary I am a big stationary fan too... and the pin is just so adorable. I love how you tell your story with the pics you use... A great reflection for sure!

  35. It's so strange the things we remember - I'm a hugeeee stationary fan and then I hate writing it or starting anything so the collection just grows and I have to buy plain boring bits to use ;)x
