#33 Do something you loved as a child.
This was a really interesting one and I enjoyed this. I did delay this for quite a bit after deciding on what to do because I find it time consuming for something enjoyable so it was ideal to do it after retakes. One night I thought to myself, what I loved doing as a child… I will admit that my childhood is a blur to me to some extents, not because of it being so long ago but I had negative memories of my past hinder the positive memories for quite a while when I was younger.

No joke, recalling this all makes me smile so much. It was really hard to build my fort with the structure I had since I now have a single wooden bed with pretty much nothing to support my blankets. I tried my best and I was able to make it small and cosy, here is it:
