I’m currently enrolled in a creative writing clas. I taking it twice because I want to write a memoir about growing up with a disease. To prepare myself for writing I used one of the assignments in the class. The assignment was to make a list. It could be about anything so I made a list about things I miss seeing or doing on my own. Last night I happen to stumble upon it and started to laugh about what I wrote down and it is true that I do miss these things.
For example I wrote down that I miss playing video games. I was at the very end of The Mask of Zelda with only one mask and one bottle to find when I lost my sight. The funny thing was that it really pissed me off, I really wanted to finish that damn game.
Another was that I miss watching tv or a movie by myself. It annoys me so it must anoy others that I am aways saying “What happened?”. This is especially true for sports or boxing, everyone is cheering and I am trying to figure out what’s going on and I am five minutes late in saying “yes” or “Damn”.
Of course I also miss the usual stuff that’s a no brainer but things like what I just mentioned crack me up because they seem so insignificant to others but to me they’re huge.
