Is there really a lot I can recall about my kindergarten experience? Not really. As unfortunate as that may sound I like to think of that as a blessing rather than a curse. My memories of being 5 and 6 years old are not bad, to be honest they are quite exemplary. In fact I would go so far as to say that my formative educational years were the best years of my life. So why am I glad to forget? I suppose I have just came to terms with accepting the inevitable loss of memory, and how those memories are not important or valuable to me anymore. However, there are the occasional memories I can never seem to forget. The ones that at the most random of moments still seem to creep into my mind. Perhaps they are triggered by small instances that reminds …show more content…

Or how it gave me terrible allergies like a full blast of pollen rising towards my nasal cavities.
