Summer 00s

Every year when the summer season comes, it constantly reminds me of my childhood days, and I feel nostalgic about the Summer 00s. To share my glimpse of childhood, I would like to share how I spent one of the summer days.

Listening to birds chirping, playing in the sea, making sand castles, and playing with dad and siblings was a wonderful memory. Later after coming home, we all are exhausted just from looking at the hot scorching sun; I have decided not to step out of the house. I switched on the fan and lay flat on the floor with an ice bar in hand. Mom called me to help her get the fryums sundried on the terrace. Lazily I got up and went to her with a sulking face, then she said, “Meri laadli, I will give you cool mango juice if you help me” by listening to the word mango, I decided to help her with her chores on the terrace.

After one hour, its 1 pm, and one of my favorite summer past time in the afternoon was watching TV. Especially I watch Looney tunes, Mickey & friends, popeye, Oswald, Pengu, Ben 10, Tom & Jerry, Pink Panther, Angry Birds, and The Powerpuff Girls. Well, after watching all these serials, it would be 4:30 pm. As the sun starts to set down, now I wish to go out with my bicycle, to play outside. Once I reach the park, I am fond of playing with the puppies around the park corner, and then I like to play on the swing with my friends. After getting tired of playing around, I reached home and ate the food cooked by my mom and listened to my grandma’s stories, and I would sleep.

Life was effortless during my childhood. My only worry was the homework and being scared of the Maths subject.

Now, I would not complain that my life has become challenging, but it has changed into complete grown-up life: studies, jobs, bills to pay, and attending get-togethers (not a fun business). But, once in a while, everyone should take time to appreciate the little things around them, keep more in touch with the environment, and appreciate the beauty of nature.

Just not me; many people miss their childhood and wish to relive it again. Right now, mental stress has become a new unseen pandemic in today’s generation. Every person has a trigger point for their youth and wants to share it with others. I want to give them a place to share their childhood memories and make it a #summer 00s part of my blog; they are free to upload or comment on the blog about the best memory of their childhood.
