    Also, if I was 8 years old again, I would put a lot more effort into the practice at the swimming lessons I went to until I was about 10 years old, but only ever got a water skills 1 award for. :sad:

    If I was 8 years old, I would go outside more and learn how to ride a bike (I can't ride one still..) instead of watching disney channel all day. I'd also make an effort at the swimming lessons in years 3/4 because I should learn how to swim!

    If I knew how secondary school would be like I'd appreciate activities at break times more too. I missed the skipping ropes, running around in the grass and playing stuck in the mud in year 7.

    I can't bear the thought of having to go through GCSEs again...
    :afraid: Good god, no! I had about 28 exams :bawling:

    Eat loads of sweets and run around loads because I wouldn't put on weight or be so exhausted - I'd love to have the energy I used to!
    Eating lots of sweets reduces early onset hanger :teehee:

    I was rubbish at it when I tried it and scared of falling over so never really made an effort! I'm determined to learn how to ride a bike and swim now though, one day! Yeah, it all stopped at secondary school. :sad:

    Start learning guitar so I could show up one of my old friends who patronized me for only knowing Knights of Cydonia (when I taught myself).
    Suck it. :<

    Slap annoying 8 year olds without it being seen as absolutely morally abhorrent.

    I'd feel absolutely awful initially. I think one of my distinct memories from around age 8 was watching my dad drive away in his car because mum threatened to call the police if he kept knocking to pick us up which would always make us cry. That whole period just consisted of them fighting, us being super confused and crying about it. I'd hate to be in the same position as such a helpless child with no power to make decisions on anything regarding parents. We just went with the flow. Although I think that only comes to mind because it was a bad memory but I'm sure there were loads of fun stuff I did when I was 8.

    I remember playing out a lot with neighbours or having my dad take us all out on a fun family trip or us going to Scotland to see our cousins so I would look forward to that. I was also probably be in year 3 and I remember that being the last time we were in the old school building and it was an outside classroom and we had a teacher with an irish accent and she reminded me of miss honey from Matilda. Someone had also put a pin on her chair and we spent like a week in detention because nobody owned up even though we all knew who it was. I also remember the table I was on and the friends that I had. We would call our table eraser a "ruby" :lol: Tbh if I was in the same position as I was back then, I don't feel like I would have many choices to do stuff that I wanted. And I don't think any 8 years old has any real power to decide what they want to do, its just kinda planned for them.

    Okay so I think this was suppose to be a fun light exercise and I just turned it into something super deep.

    Haha I remember those sweets, they were awesome. I think they might still sell them now somewhere but at an inflated price

    Oooh... work rly hard at everything, so as to be ahead and all that, practise singing so that I could be an opera singer (always used to want to be one lol)... enjoy all those amazing Christmases I can remember... appreciate my parents' efforts more... learn how to hoola-hoop on my waist (can do all sorts of tricks with my wrist and stuff, but can't do the standard waist thing)... and just generally make so much more out of my life. If everybody could be given that choice the night before turning 18... goodbye to GCSE resits, a whole lot more people would be successful/very good at predicting the future lol.
