    No Worries...

    I would love to be a kid again! I had no bills, no problems, no responsibilities and no worries. I had only to worry about my grades and chores. Oh how I long for the old days!

    Song So True.

    Being a kid was easy. You had it made. Nothing to worry about. And I miss that. And these song lyrics completely fit that. Trace Atkins- Your Gonna Miss This She was staring out the window of their SUV Complaning, saying "I can't wait to turn 18" She said "...

    Funny Isn't It...

    When I was still a kid, I wished I could be grown up fast. When I got older, I wish I could be a kid again. I thought growing up would be cool and you get to do everything on your own. No people to control you or to tell you what you should and shouldn't do. Well hell, how wrong...
