    I wish I was little again!

    Life is just so much simpler when you are little. Life is perfect. Life is easy and worry free. I wish I could turn back time and live my little care free life. My childhood was cut short when I was eight almost nine and I had to do a lot of growing up really fast. My world...

    Small - Town Girl

    The first ten years of my life were spent in a little town in the middle of pretty much nowhere, in North Dakota.  We had all the freedom in the world, it seemed, in that place & time!  We played outside all day, whatever the season, lots of horseback - riding in summer...

    It Wasn't So Easy...

    ...as most people think it is. In comparison to now, as an adult, of course, being a kid was a piece of cake. But who would really want to go back to childhood knowing what they know now? That seems it would defeat the purpose. Life was always difficult, and the feeling of not...

    Soda turns to into alcohol,

    hugs turn to into sex, and everything changes! I hate being this age. Too old to to half the things I wanna do and too young to do the other half.

    If Only.

    If only I could be a little kid again. I didn't have to worry about anything. Life was just about having a good time. I believe that is the secret to life. But when we get older we somehow loose it. We get so caught up in the process of life that we forget to have fun. That what...

    The Best Things

    The best things about being a kid were waking up to watch cartoons and play video games. It was fun in the summer to swim in a pool, run through the sprinklers or have a water balloon fight. But those times are over.

    Me Too...

    I'd give anything to be 1 1/2 again.  That was before I went to preschool and became depressed.  I couldn't walk yet, but I was happy.

    The Innocence Of A Child

    I wish I could go back to the time when there was nothing to worry about. Back when everything was happy and my biggest problem was if I did well on my homework. I remember playing in the back yard with my friend and we would play in the mud and we wouldn't care if we got dirty...

    I never really wanted to grow up,

    partly because I was forced to grow up so fast. I wished Peter Pan would come get me on his next trip to see Wendy. I miss when I loved everyone and everything unconditionally and the biggest worry I had was not getting to drink some of my dad's soda.

    A kid only worries about school, homework, and toys they want. Being an adult is so complicating, stressful. You worry about rent, work, money. Everything has to do with money. Life is a true struggle.
