    I'm Graduating This Year

    I'm graduating this year and I can't help but feel old. I was never a child who wanted to grow up and get out there and get the perfect job and get married and have kids. I always just wanted to stay where I was. I dreaded each Birthday, thinking "I'm getting just that much...

    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.

    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...

    I love my husband I really do,

    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???

    I'm a big kid at heart.

    I love to play. I know when to be serious and mature, but I have more fun just being me.

    Childlike, Not Childish

    I think we all are. It never goes away,

    it is part of the many parts. Everyone likes to play, to imagine, to create. Clay smells the same to me now as it did when I was a kid and sundried sheets have the same crispness, the same scent. The pleasures in life can always be recreated. There is nothing finer than to...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I still watch all the cartoon shows

    and movies from when I was a little kid (thank you, Netflix!). I remember what happens in each episode as soon as I see the episode's title-screen. I have 13 functioning Nerf guns and will dare anyone to challenge me! That being said, the toy section of a store is my playground...

    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.

    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.

    What if we never made it to adult.

    But we look like a grandpa. And are expected to be an adult. Simply because we can argue ethics. And point out societal flaws. Since we are mentally gifted minors. What then???

    Some Things Will Never Change

    I think in order to keep the kid inside of you, one must have an imagination. I think once we lose the kid in us, that's when we start giving up on life in general. The next time you see some clouds in the sky just take a minute and find a picture. Remember what it means to be a...
