    The 70's

    Ahh, yes. I miss the 70's. A time when I had the most freedom and least responsibilities ever. A time of living for concerts, partying, and loving, living dangerously. I was 18, had a job but it was just a way to finance the conerts and drugs.With six pack abs I was quite the...

    Good Times!!!!

    I grew up with my grandmother. She was the person that took me in as her own son and raised me. We grew up in a 1 room attic apartment w/ no bathroom or running water. I used to fill up 2 gallons of water everyday before and after school. Sometimes three times a day if I washed...

    Wow .... Right Between My Eyes.

    There are a lot of different levels of missing another time in a person's life. I have it SOOOOO badly I have sough professional help for it. I can say that almost ALL of my issues in life are due to this. I will comment tonight when I have more time, but this should be good.

    Ecstasy Is Fleeting

    There was a short time in my childhood before I knew anything was wrong.  That kind of ignorance would certainly be blissful!

    Remembrance..

    Sadly I can't be sure what time I really do miss.. A couple years ago? or when I was a kid? Maybe more so when I was a kid, because things were a slight bit easier even if they were hard when I was a kid. Things were a bit easier than this... The more I think about it. The...

    I remember how happy I use to be,

    despite the fact that I have been depressed for practically my entire life, I was still a lot happier then than I am now. It was easier to deal with this when I was younger. I didn't fully understand at the time that what I was going through wouldn't go away. I was happier about...

    Time

    The time I miss most in my life is when my kids were growing up.  We had so much fun, carefree days, bike rides, swimming, kite flying, hanging out at home, running through the rain, puddle jumping, and so much more.  Now that they are older I look back and miss...

    I want to go back to be a little kid.

    Life was so much easier and quite frankly, 100000 times better and more enjoyable . But we grow up, get a crappy 9-5 job to pay for a dysfunctional family and a cheating wife. By the time we stop to look at the clock we are 65 with heart disease and widowed. Where does the time...

    Been looking at photos of my old group of

    friends... We were amazing together! If I were to write a book it would be then, that was my coming-of-age story. My best story that ended in the sadness of "we can make the distance work" and "he's mine!" I was rude and hurt all of them, I flirted with all the guys and dated...
