Resignation Letter From Adulthood (Author Unknown)

To Whom it May Concern,

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year old again.

I want to go to McDonald's and think that it is a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle, skip rocks across the mill pond and make a sidewalk with rocks.

I want to roller skate and play ball in the street, play 'Red Rover Red Rover', 'Hide and Seek' and ride my Radio Flyer wagon down the hill.

I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple. When all I knew were colors, most of my multiplication tables, and a few nursery rhymes. All I knew was to be happy and I was blissfully unaware of all the things that should make me worried or upset.

I want to sleep in a tent in the back yard without worry or fear.

I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe anything is possible.

I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.

I want to live simple again. I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor's bills, gossip, illness, and the loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, kind words, truth, justice, peace, dreams, imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So here is my check book and my car keys, my credit card bills and all my statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause...

Tag! You are it!

it's way overrated

I feel the same way adulthood sucks I am sick of this group vs that group most adults have no clue how to have any fun everything is about perceived social status I just want to play snowball fights making forts building Legos snowboarding down a small hill and thinking it's the biggest accomplishment ever take my resignation too!

I wanna do all that too; Play snowball fights & build forts, (pretending to be Sailor Moon dressed as the White Ranger,) then drink hot chocolate, cuddle in warm blankets, watch Spider Riders & play Nintendo 3DS

I used to hurry home from school to watch dragonball z even tho I am a guy I admit I still have the sailormoon theme song stuck in my head from the opening I miss the 90s sooooo much they weren't perfect but so much better then now people had real friends instead of Facebook fake friends bullying was bad back then tho swirlies wedgies and paper hornets it was brutal

I want the 90s, (and my Childhood/Babyhood,) back soooo bad! Sailor Moon Forever!!! Waah!!

I wish I could be 5, 7, or 9 years old, (I can't decide) in 1991, the year Sailor Moon "Hit the Stage"

:-D I love this!

I wish you rainbows and puppy dog kisses; rolling in fresh spring grass, splashing in mud puddles during a warm summer shower. Watching the parade of animals, ships and butterflies in the clouds as they float by... Life is full of magic throught the wonder of the imagination... Yes, never forget the importance of being 8.

Tag, your it! nanannana you missed me :-p
