    I Wanna Stay Here Forever!

    Everyone just wants to get past their teen and childhood years. They think everything's going to be better. But I can hardly handle this. Let alone taxes, bills, house payments, supporting others. I can barely function on my own.   So no. I don't want to grow up!

    College work is teh suxorz. It sucks to constantly have work to do. I signed up for a service that's supposed to help people with career-related things, but I don't even care about it anymore.. I guess the only reason I'm going to college is so I can get a job that pays well...

    I Want to Play

    I am 34 years old and I the heart of a young girl. I didn't have the childhood that other females had. My childhood was strictly adult-like with 10% play time.  Because of this set back, at times the child in me wants to break out and have fun. I want to giggle, wrestle...

    You Can't Make Me!

    One of the things my grandma used to say to me was "Don't get old." It's kind of hard when you're 28 to act like you're not a grown up, but it comes easily to me. I just don't relate with most adults. Many of them think I'm "immature" or need to "grow up," but why? So I can live...

    Being An Adult Is Crap

    i miss those days when i would just play with toys and visit the playground. being 20, i realised that growing means that you have to have love and money and do this and that, so i couldnt be stuffed pursuing these things. i would like to age slowly even tough i am mistaken for...

    I Feel As If Things Are Changing Too Fast

    Says Who?

    Really... who says we have to grow up? There are so many "grown ups" out there who have lost the ability to see anything for what it might be or could be or maybe should be; they only see things as they are. I may be dancing round thirty, but I still wear Chuck Taylors and the...

    The Death Of Fun

    At one stage of my life I used to enjoy writing short stories and drawing cartoons. Stories were especially fun because the thrill of thinking up of an interesting story made my spine tingle. It made me think: "Nobody has ever thought of that before! It's completely new!" But the...

    I Will Always Be A Kid

    I don't mind if you don't believe in God, but I remember that Jesus Christ did say that being a kid is one of the best things you could do. No, I'm not a kid because of that, but a recent experiece really did teach me what He really meant by that. It is a very decent theory that...

    Terrified

    I am truly terrified of growing up at this point. The fears have been building up for about two years now and I don't know what to do about it. I'm only sixteen so I have no idea what it's like to live as an adult, which probably just makes it seem more daunting. I got...
