“If you want to live a memorable life, you have to be the kind of person who remembers to remember” – Joshua Foer

Today, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane. If someone asked me how do you make amazing memories? I would say do the things you’ve always wanted to do, don’t look back and have no regrets so that you’ll always have something fun to look back on. I remember when my brother, sister and I invented this game where we would place a duvet at the top of the stairs, sit on it, fold the bottom of the duvet over our legs and wiggle about until we were sliding down the stairs. We would do it over and over just to feel the rush again. Every time I think about when I was young I can’t help but laugh at the crazy games we made up. I don’t think anyone has done some of the crazy things I did as a child. For example, my siblings and I used to make an indoor swing using a skipping rope and a large teddy. We used to tie the skipping rope around the bear and then tie the other end to the bannister of the stairs. Surprisingly, it worked most of the time and 70% of the time no one was hurt. My mum used to say that if there was silence in the house then we were up to no good. As you can imagine, my parents tried to keep our fizzy drink intake low or they would suffer the consequences of our hyperactivity.
