People On The Internet Are Talking About Their Elementary School Days, And It’s Super Nostalgic

In elementary school our biggest worries were trying to win a game of foursquare or trying to be first in line to get appointed as the hall monitor. But there’s so much more we miss about elementary school…

Life was all fun and games in elementary school.


And our biggest concern was trying to get a ball to play with before they all ran out.

And lunchtime cuisine was even better because of these little chocolate milk baggies:

Now chocolate milk is a luxury.

When it was time to be inside the classroom, 90% of the day consisted of crafting.

So any crafting abilities you have, you owe to elementary school.

And this was the only time group projects were fun.

FUN!…not stressful.

Elementary school was basically the only time you felt appreciated for all of your work.

Awards for dayyyys.

The same went for Valentine’s Day. No one was ever left out.

Everyone felt so loved.

And elementary school crushes were the cutest.

They gave you diary content for days.

The only material things we were obsessed over were these Scholastic Books:


Book fairs were everyyyythinnng. ??

And these super cool flexible pencils:

They actually made us want to do homework.

Of course, the thing everyone misses the most are those thee-month long vacations we used to get every summer.


Now we’re lucky to even get THREE DAYS of vacation.

To be honest, nothing really compares to those stress-free elementary school days…


When the only thing you had to worry about was possibly losing your hair ribbons at school (and mom would freak out the way she does now when you lose her Tupperware) – not worrying about losing your dignity after being left on read.

*Sigh*…now all we can do is reminisce.

Can we just go back to elementary school please. ?

It’s a fact that Latinos cannot get enough of ruffles. This aesthetic choice has permeated all facets of our lives from baptisms to our bedroom. Here are some examples of how our parents (and we) have gone a little overboard with ruffles.

Our baby photo albums.

Extra points on this one if you also have a space for your baptism photo on the front.

The socks.

We all know them. We all wore them. We all hated them. We all miss them.

Your baptism was the first time you were decked out in ruffles.

Then came your First Communion which needed ruffles.

For some reason even your toilet was dressed up in ruffles.

Because it is sooooooo hygienic, right?

How about those decorative pillows you never understood?

And the pressure mark they made on your face during nap time was ridiculous.

We have even mastered the technique of adding ruffles to food. To. ?? Food! ??

It is still a tasty cake though.

If you had allergies, you definitely struggled through these comforters.

And even your car seat was not complete with at least one row of ruffles.
