I don't want to go to work, but here I go. We all often do things we don't want to do don't we? Remember being a kid and thinking how awesome being an adult was? What did you think being an adult meant as a kid, and how does that differ from what you are experiencing now?

It was so long ago that I do not even remember if I thought it would be great to be an adult. What I have learned is that the best time in life is when you are a kid.

@Jessicalynnt I agree, we had no worries about money, washing the clothes, ironing, cooking. Our main concerns were the school and to play.

I have to work the next couple of days so I know what you mean. I'm pretty tired of working.

I used to think it's awesome that you don't have to deal with homework and exams, drive a car and have your own money. Now? Obviously a different reality.

Interesting discussion As a kid, I always believed that it is more fun growing up. You get the freedom to do what you want. And today, I realize, everything I thought back then was wrong. With age, comes responsibility - which definitely kills the kid in many. I am happy that the kid is still alive in me. I miss the earlier days - not because I was a child/kid, but because of the people who were around me.

The only thing I remember was wanting to get away from my mom. That did and didn't work as planned. Lol
