    The horrifying moment

    when you're looking for an adult but then you realize you are an adult. So you look for an older adult, someone successfully adulting. An adultier adult. Gosh my thought process today is cray hahaha

    I'm 21 years-old but certainly don't act like

    it. I've been properly deemed a "man-child". My Netflix list is full of cartoons. If a show doesn't make me laugh, I probably won't watch it; live-action shows have to be above and beyond funny if they want my attention (like "The Office"). Before having Netflix (going to...

    Growing Up Sucks!

    I have nothing against adults, but I notice that older you get, the more crap life dishes out to you. I have dealt with more than enough during my lifetime. However, life keeps giving me more and more to deal with. More and more, and every time I get some new responsibility, and...

    I don't see the point of growing up

    if it means giving up things you enjoy, like dolls and stuffed animals. And imaginary friends. I'll never give up my imaginary friends because to me, they're real and my dolls and animals are fun for me to play with. I don't care how old I am. What I hate is that the adults in...

    Life just gets worse

    as the years pass. Hitting puberty at a young age really freaked me out. School got harder. I'm only working because it's what society demands. I'm so afraid of growing up that I developed anorexia nervosa and starved away my curves and menses. But I can't turn back the clock of...
