    I Will Always Act Like A Kid I always had

    this subconscious desire to be treated like a kid I guess. I've always acted a little like one too, according to my mom. It's kind of embarrassing but I still play pretend sometimes too, like when I'm trying to go to bed or something. Since I sleep with my fans on, it tends to...

    So F***Ing Afraid

    The fear of growing up literally consumes me. Everything will change. As morbid and sad as this is, my parents will probably die before me, my friends may die. It's just so much it seems. I know I sound terribly negative, and anytime I post things like this, I always get the type...

    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...

    sometimes in an adult world you can become so overwelmed you revert to being a kid.the innocence of a child is the most pure thing on this planet.we were all there at one time,some of us just forget what it was like being a kid,not corrupted

    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...

    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...

    Forever Young

    I want to be forever young so that I will be carefree, innocent, decent looking and lack the great responsibilities that come with adulthood.  Growing up is scary plus you get wrinkles and all that.
