    So Much Easier.

    It was so much easier when you had no care in the world. Not having any bills to worry about. Not having to work. Being a grown up sucks sometimes.

    I miss being a kid under the age of 11.

    I even had a boyfriend in 3rd grade and never in middle or high school. I was never bullied until I got to the 5th grade which was the time I started puberty. I remember going to a daycare and having so much fun. I was able to be myself and was never picked on. I remember the...

    When I was a kid I used to think

    In Some Ways

    Child-Like Wonder I was walking near a candy

    shop when I spotted a little boy. He was eyeing at the candies inside while his mother wasn't looking. He looked like he was thinking of some naughty scheme to trick his mother into buying him some sweets. Watching him made me smile. Beautiful childhood.
