These threads from all of you re nostalgia looking back in the rear view mirror of life have been very interesting reads and I marvel at your honesty and forthrightness posting them (no fluff or excess of cerebral impishness). From my perspective at almost 63 I do miss certain aspects of youth but not kid-dom. So far I have wished to return to only 2 age moments: 28 and 41. At 28 I had an established business, far more responsibility than I wanted but I was independent and happy. Big rig was paid off, eyesight could still pick out small print in dim light, sense of immortality was still intact. By age 41 that sense of immortality was no longer felt, eyesight was in decline, and I had reinvented myself to "dance" to someone else's tune as a architectural computer drafter. However, this was where my social awareness, education, and growth really started.

The 1 interesting statistic re my kid-dom compared to yours is the nationwide (or worldwide, for that matter) population presence THEN compared to NOW: 30 Million, 50 Million, more.....

Hey, with what time you have left have a nice life. Enjoy the ride.

I do miss my childhood. I wasn't concerned about many things back then, and everything was black and white. As you grow up it turns more into shades of gray, so I'm basically lost. I didn't know shit about the world or how sick it was. But I like being grown up too because of some certain things.

lol I still act alot like a kid but if I had to say what I missed the most about being a child it would be how oblivious I was. Now that I'm older I can truly see what my family is like... Honestly I wish I didn't know so much about things... but I'm still pretty innocent and my parents and friends comment on that alot.

it's my senior year of high school, and i'm stressing about a lot of little things that don't matter too much. i'd like to be a kid again and spend my days with my first best friends.

yeah, not a care in the world

life is so convenient you don't even have to walk to the bathroom

just poop yourself in your chair and continue going on about your business until someone complains about the smell
