Well, I miss riding a bike. There's just no way to ride a bike here in the city, it's very dangerous. When we were young my Dad use to bring us to the park and there we can ride our bike all we want. I also miss singing in the karaoke, lol. There's just no new songs available in cd's anymore. Maybe I should get one of those Magic Sing. And last but not the least I miss reading a book. There's just no time anymore. I miss the smell of the book, just lying down reading, getting excited and all. One of this days I'll just make time for it. How about you, what do you miss doing the most?

After I got promoted in my job, i felt like I never had time with my band. I miss the times we play songs and hang-out together. ;)

Hi! I think our jobs have eaten up most of our times. So, you were a member of a band, cool... What kind of songs do you guys play?

there are many small and simple things that you miss doing while growing up. for me getting drenched in the rain is what i miss the most. cant watch extended hours of TV. riding a bike is also one the things we miss. time spent in school canteens. Eating tiffins of our friends in school. Hey you refreshed all the memories of my childhood. There were so many meaningless we used to do and enjoyed but now when you grow up you find it hard to do the same coz of time and responsibilities. Anyhow you should never miss an opportunity of doing such things at any age.

Time spent is school canteens, yes, I miss those too. It's just hard to find time, but I think I will.

There are a few things that I have come to miss in the years since I've become an adult. The first thing that I miss is just being able to go out in the evening without having to plan ahead. Having children this is just something that isn't possible at all. The other thing that I miss is being a part of a competitive swim team. I spent the vast majority of my childhood on a swim team, be it a neighborhood swim team or my high school swim team. They just don't have anything like that for adults.

This sounds crazy but I miss climbing trees and jumping out of them with my ankles or wrists tied to grapevines I used to do this often as a child I was lighter then a grapevine could hold my weight no problem.. but I grew up ... also can not climb trees no more my body is not as strong as it used to be.. I love to karaoke too miss doing that on yahoo to midi files lol... reading books I used to do a lot but I am busy reading emails most of the time now.. .. what I miss the most is hanging out with my grandparents who passed on.. it seemed like when we were all together there was not a problem in the world we could not seem to solve.. I miss dancing really hard, and I miss physical hard work but I injured my shoulder and ankle.. not by jumping out of trees but one tripping over a children s toy and other slipping half up and down the stairs into a twisted version of the splits that the body is not built for.. tore tendons and ligaments in my foot it has been hard to walk and dance right fora long time I can do some hard dancing now but not the moves with twists.. I miss doing the twist :)

i miss a lot of things, now that i've finished college, it seems that i need to really start to be independent. find a job, look for a place to live, the busy and fast pace of life. all these things take the life out of me.. I miss the simple things like having a lunch out with the whole family, chatting with my siblings while drinking cappuccino in starbuck, baking cookies with my sisters and the like.. those were the days *sigh*

I still ride, you could do it at any age :D I miss playing with my Barbie. My brother brought her from another country and she's in there to look but I don't play anymore and don't feel like to (thank God, can you imagine an adult playing?). But I miss wanting to play, and all the feelings of a 7 years old.

I miss traveling. Oh no! Not just any kind of travel. Traveling with a camper. As a kid, we had a station wagon and the camper was attached to it every summer. I use to live in Mobile, AL which was a 12 hour drive to the Gulf in FL near Disney World. We'd go there in the summer and Easter week vacation. We even traveled to Hershey, PA, CO, NH, and NY in the trailer. I miss how we would go all winter away from the inside and when spring came, it was time to open the camper to that great indoor smell. It had a bathroom, bunk beds, table that even turned into a bed, stove, oven, sink,frig and storage for food. My parents sold the trailer four years ago. There were a lot of great memories in that trailer. We'd stay up half the night playing card games and then my brother and I would get into the top bunks to try and go to sleep as fast as we could before my dad did or we would have to put up with his snoring. The thing I miss about the camper is, it had just enough of a little slant that my brother could lean over the rail, reach the knob on the bathroom door, then open it letting the door close on its own. That little slam was enough to make my dad roll over and stop snoring for ten minutes. Just enough time for us all to go back to sleep. I sure do miss that trailer.

I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would say "I miss going to work" I miss the friends and the routine of it all. I know if I was going to work everyday I would want to be home too. LOL LOL LOL - However, if I could work 3 days a week that would be great. I would love a schedule of working only Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I also miss reading a good book. I have had not a bit of time for anything due to being in the process of moving. One day I will be able to sit back in my backyard in Puerto Rico with a cold drink and a good book to read and relax. I can't wait for this.

I miss doing the things I and my mom and the rest of the family used to do together. We traveled together, did a lot of things together as one family. One thing I always miss is when it's Christmas and I helped my mom out a lot in decorating while my brother did different motifs for our belen. My mom passed away last 2008 and well it's just not the same without her. I still do a lot of the same things at present. It's just that there is someone missing
