Daily Prompt: Buffalo Nickel

Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?images

To write on the prompt, I need a coin, since my own wallet doesn’t have any coins right now, I, as usual, asked my mother to give me any. The one I came across was of 2004 i.e to say nine years back. It was quite an eventful year, owing to the fact that our house was renovated and that completely, and completely means from switchboards to doors to the paint and the entire furniture of our room. It was quite difficult to manage in the house, with everything out-of-place, along with continuing the school. The main problem was that we had no where else to reside in, temporarily, therefore, all the choice we had to put up with a messy home. Even though we had to live and study in an almost under construction house, the three of us managed to scrape the first ranks in our classes. It sounds quite dramatic but it is true, the reason for this was that we had our mother’s undivided attention towards our studies. It is true that she usually gave us an hour or two each day for the studies, but this time it was more than that time and so we managed to give the best of our results.
The coin I found was a perfect one I guess because I had a lot to share about this year.. 😉

Back to the Future.

Daily Prompt: Childhood Revisited

Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you wish had been different about your childhood? If you have kids, is there anything you wish were different for them?

ME AND MY SIBLINGS. (to extreme right is me ME, to my left are MY siblings)

To me, my childhood was just PERFECT,  I have had the best parents, best siblings, nothing to worry about and a happy-go-lucky life to move on with. Sure we didn’t have a car for sometime but those motorbike rides with my family were amazing and I can never forget them. Also that my childhood was a time when I was blessed with grandparents, though not all, but both my paternal and maternal grandmothers were there for us. The time the three of us (siblings) spent together playing either teacher-student (me being a teacher) or playing The Family was really really great. The best part was that we did not have too many cell-phones and computers, they were their but their use was not quite significant for us and therefore we had quite a time for each other and for our parents as well. And the last point which just struck my mind, all the homework in the world I had to do was spelling, and when worst of the worst came, I had to do colouring(I still find it tiring to do it in any graphs).

To cut the long story short, I would wish to back to my childhood rather than making any changes in it. No matter how old I get, Being a child was the best part of my life. 🙂
