    Still Feel Like A Kid, And Glad!

    I'm 33, work full-time, have my own place, and in general am a responsible adult, but I've never really felt like it. I don't know if I ever will. I still play with kids' toys, play old video games from my childhood, build giant cushion forts, watch cartoons. Pretty much...

    When I was younger, I would visit my older

    brother and he was really into comic books, and that was some of the first reading I did. I still love comics and movies because it brings me back good memories.

    I still sleep with a few special plush toys

    from among my huge collection. I can still remember all their names and occasionally talk to them if I'm upset or lonely.

    Childlike, Not Childish.

    I think it a wonderful thing to keep that child like quality of seeing the world as a bright, wonderful, exciting place. To take in with awe the things you see in life everyday. To never let the ordinary become mundane, but to welcome it with a warm heart and bright smile. To be...

    Hey everyone, im a 20 year old male,

    all though 20 isnt exactly old there's still not many people i know at my age that express they're childish side as fully as I do, although my childish side has a twist to it, and explaining my reasons for being "childish" can relate to other topics or experiences, basically...

    I really don't care what others have to think

    about my being kiddish every now and then. I completely know that I am one of the responsible persons on this planet. But more than often I like being with kids and kids like being with me. It is as simple as that. :-)

    Forever Young

    I am a kid at heart, forever young as some might say but it has nothing to do with my physical appearance, the way I eat, or even the many age-fighting creams I use on my face. I stay young because I giggle and laugh and dance in the rain. I still twirl in my skirts round and...

    but sometimes I just want to rewind to my high school years and be home with my parents and my little sister and never leave them. Is that weird???

    No matter how old I get every year.

    I still sleep with my teddy bear. i get excited and put a huge smile when I enter a candy store and i buy candy. I dance around when i get good news or i hear a song i love. All those little things and others i will continue to do cause being an adult is not always fun and games...

    Duh I feel like you should always hold on to

    part of what you had when you were a kid! Like your innocent mind and huge imagination, I try to stay like a kid at heart and still hold a level of maturity when I need to :) but that's just me I guess haha

    Although I'm an adult

    and very much into *ahem* adult things, I find my mentality is more on the level of a child's. Still interested in games, cartoons and childish humour and that's okay with me!

    And Why Should There Be Anything Wrong With That?

    Back when I was in high school I tried so hard to be 'the mature one' amongst my group of friends. I was good at it, but even so it was wrong. A few years ago I met someone who changed my life in so many ways, one of those being learning to be able to accept and portray who I am...

    Growing up without a dad had me grow up real

    fast. But I chose to take the best in life anyway. I was never taught what dads teach you. Still, I've always been curious, inventive and silly. I always will be.

    All of that work the adults did to make me into

    a "normal, healthy, and hard-working person" and all their efforts to stop my "problem behaviors" were in vain. They have failed. I'm never going to let anything take away what's left of my innocence. I'm going to watch cartoons, eat junk food, stay up late on weekends (or...

    One of the things that I admire most Bout

    children is their marked sense of resiliency and innate curiosity to learn. I miss the days when my mind and imagination was untouched by the reality that was 'taught' to me.

    The world is a playground

    and as we get older that changes to us. When we grow all we care about is love, work, money. Take a break let loose. Take your cares and lock them away for one day and regain the feeling of youth. Your inner child drinks from the fountain of youth. Let your inner child show you...

    Young At Heart

    Perhaps others view me as immature or silly. But I do know when to act my age, and when to have fun. Life is too drab and too serious to sulk about, constantly frowning. My life is no picnic or walk in the park, but I have recently begun to view life with a whimsical attitude. I...

    Among the joys of having kids is

    that one gets to enjoy kids toys, children's books, kids movies ... And a lot of them are quite good. We rewatched "How to Train Your Dragon" today. And that's a good movie, and I bet a lot of adults who do not have kids miss out on good movies like that just because their...

    This is probably gonna sound pretty pathetic

    considering I'm a 16 year old who will legally be considered an adult in two years. My favorite TV shows are cartoons I watched as a child, I love video games, and I let my imagination run wild all the time. I probably take this infantile behavior way too far but why is it that...
