    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...

    I Am Weird

    I like to have fun. I like to be crazy. If I'm really nervous or feeling odd I won't show my weird side.

    Kid At Heart, And Proud Of It

    I have no problem whatsoever admitting that I'm a kid at heart. I'll gladly watch cartoons and Disney movies with or without my kids. I still have all of the Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars I've collected. But the ultimate big kid experience, is to go to Disney World. I was there...

    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...

    Grown Up

    I am 21 years of age, however I still feel like a kid. I can't imagine myself 3 or 4 years from now, graduated from university with a degree, getting a job and practically leaving my own life. I can't even imagine myself being married. I still feel like this small kid inside a...

    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.

    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...

    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

    I still collect lego.

    I still watch animated films about superheroes. I love batman. I still prefer playing games to life. I still play with water like it's amazing. I don't dress like an adult. I'm 24 but I think I'm actually 12. XD

    So at first it was really irritating how many

    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...

    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...

    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...
