When I was younger I had dreams of being a movie star. I would dress up in my mom's clothes and pretend I was accepting my Oscar speech. Since I am older now I am glad I never became a child star. As a child star you never get to be a kid. You never get to be a regular kid and play around with the other kids in the neighborhood. Everything becomes work. This morning I woke up and it was sunny, but a little chilly. It reminded me of waking up in the morning at summer camp. At summer camp we needed to wake up early to pledge our allegiance to the American flag and start the daily activities. The weather was always slightly chilly in the morning, but by the end of the day it was blazing hot. This morning reminded me of those days when I had nothing to worry about, except if my crush liked me or not. I remember playing made up games with my cousins at my grandmother's house because we were so bored and had a few pennies to buy candy at the corner store. I am glad that I have those childhood memories to make me smile and to pass down to my kids in the future. When I was ten I couldn't wait to be an adult and now as an adult I want to hold on to those childhood memories as long as I can.
