    Feeling happy.

    Turkey twizzlers are a close second.
    Turkey Twizzlers are happiness!


    For me it has to be the lack of responsibility. As much as I enjoy being an adult, it was nice knowing that if I didn't hand in that piece of homework, or was late for a class, there was no real consequence to it.

    my sense of smell and taste and touch. everything seems different now. I used to smell grapes the moment you open the house door and know what type of fruit is there. Now I'd be lucky to even taste it

    Yeah - having more first times of doing things, for example, the first time you got an adult tooth, the first time you rode in a car without needing a car seat, the first time you tried a particular food, etc.

    Definitely and because you're young and changing so quickly, this barrage of new, interesting things seems to occur all at once. And I remember days feeling so endless as well, so you appreciated things much more. I feel as though time increases in speed as I get older and it kind of sucks.

    Yeah same, an hour can come and go in a flash and yet when I was a child an hour felt like an age. It was interesting last night, as I was in the car with my brother who's in KS1 at primary school and the journey was 20 minutes long. For me, that's nothing, but he was asking 'are we there yet?' and 'are we close?' pretty much every time we stopped at a traffic light!
