Salad Days

Is there a period in your own personal life that you think of as the good old days? Tell us a story about those innocent and/or exciting times (or lack thereof).

I think the age of 11-17 were like the best and most memorable times for me. I had a lot of things happening in those years and it was fun, exciting and innocent (for the most part). I have lots of golden memories about these years, the golden years, the wonder years that it makes me sad that I can never experience them again.

Having you first crush, your first love, your first kiss. Discovering new things, new music, your favourite genre of movies & tv shows. Being able to go out with just you and your friends for the first time. That’s a lot of adventurous times at that age. Getting lost in reading a book for the first time. Creating your own dreams. Writing your first journal or diary. Writing poems and or songs.

Sneaking your first smoke, your first beer or other alcohol drink. And eh…other assorted stuff. Good times!
