Need a break from adulthood? Here are 5 TikTok content creators you can watch to relive your childhood

The pandemic has forced a lot of us to transition abruptly from being young individuals without a care in the world to suddenly becoming adults with a heightened awareness of our disintegrating world. We missed a lot of school experiences, whether it is sports fest, graduation, or simply just the little moments between you and your classmates. But just as TikTok saved us from boredom during lockdown, TikTok also brought us content creators that continue to take us on a trip down memory lane.

In case you need a break from adulthood, here are five TikTok content creators you can watch to relive your childhood.
