Things I Miss

Zebra patterned bubble gum.

Dexter's Laboratory and Rugrats.

Benjamin Linus.

Eating desert without thinking about it.

Reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for the first time.

My English 319 fiction workshop class.

Niles and Daphne.


The smell of New York.

Being young enough to make my teddy bears age appropriate.

Staying home from school sick with a Jamba Juice and Animal Planet.

Being in high school plays.

There have been some good things and good experiences in my life. I'm grateful for them, I miss the ones that are gone, and hope and pray for more goodness in the future.

What do you miss?

Sarah Allen


  1. :sigh:

    I miss being able to run.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :)

  2. I miss my creative writing classes and my practicum class especially. I miss the ecstasy of writing full time. I miss being in the high school band. Now you have me feeling all sad.

  3. Oh, gosh what a great list. Benjamin Linus and Rugrats especially.

    I miss getting ready with my friends for a night out :-)

  4. Friends and I are reliving Lost every Tuesday night because we missed it so much.

    Jack was right: "We have to go back!"

  5. This list is great. I miss Dexter's Lab too! I miss pop music from the late 90s. I miss free time. I miss when Survivor was on Thursday nights.

  6. Getting to miss a day of school when it snows.

  7. I miss Disneyland, too! And stripped gum? YUM!

  8. I miss spring break and Christmas at my grandmothers.

    8-bit side scrolling games.

    The days when everything didn't have a warning label.

  9. I miss

    my mom
    the smell of snow
    Pinkie and the Brain
    hearing my children joking around
    the colors of Ireland
    being thin

    and the list can go on...

  10. Laughing so painfully hard I couldn't breathe and thought I was going to die.


  11. For sure on the whole "eating dessert without thinking about it thing."

    Another thing I miss - not having bills, having summers off, and being in college in general (recently graduated!).

  12. Yipes Stripes!

    I miss my kids and grandkids.

    I miss a regular paycheck.

    My youth in a way.

    Old friends who are too far for me to visit.

    Road travel.

    Tossing It Out

  13. I miss sneaking out, getting someone older to buy us some Boone's Farm Country Quencher and hanging out at the arcade. :)

  14. New England in the fall.
    Beanie and Cecil.
    Living 5 minutes from the beach.
    My brother, Rick.

  15. Great conversations with a partner, the beach, and Cheers.
