Journal Jar prompt number 3 asks:
What activities do you enjoy doing today that you also enjoyed as a child? Describe them.
I loved swimming as a child and got my mile swimming badge at the age of 7. At the time, I was the youngest person to ever get the mile badge at my school. My sister broke the record a couple of years later by swimming her mile at the same time of year, also age 7 but because her birthday is 6 weeks after mine she was 6 weeks younger when she completed it. I still enjoy swimming.
It isn’t really an activity but as it is National Stationery Week, I have always loved stationery – especially notebooks, there is nothing better than getting a nice new notebook and promising yourself that you are going to keep your writing neat in it all the way through. I use notebooks for all sorts including writing lists, keeping track of what I’ve done for my 101 in 1001 challenge, keeping track of my weight and measurements so I can see how far I’ve come and how long I’ve maintained.
I also enjoy paperwork. I started filing and sorting out paperwork as a child when I would go to work with my Mum. Back then I really enjoyed the copier. It was really messy but fun. After a quick search on the internet, I think it was a mimeograph.
I still enjoy paperwork. So much so that I went back to administration after returning to education and getting my degree 7 years ago. I discovered that I like it more than Sport Therapy and Sport and Exercise Science.
