    I've Never Let Go..

    of that special part of me that looks at life and new experiences with awe &wonder. And I never will! I think it's a travesty that when most people grow up and especially when they have kids of their own they fall into "adult" or "responsible person" mode. Don't get me wrong I...

    So at first it was really irritating how many

    perverted messages and propositions I was getting on this app, eventually it just became a little amusing. It seems that most males under 25 feel that the women on this site over 36 are "cougars". So... I actually get a message tonight asking straight out if I was a cougar. I...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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???

    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...

    Haha, obviously can be said by my photo.

    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

    And more. Never made it to adult.

    Am still a mentally gifted minor. Cant handle what most adults can. They never saw why. All they saw was a brain. A brain they pushed. A brain they broke. But. EP Link

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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???

    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...

    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...
