my 8 year old nephew says he wants to be an adult man... and i was laughing and embracing him.. and says have patience for time will come you'll achieve what you want and i swear you'll say i wish i was younger.. he just smiled and seem to be careless of the thought.. im watching him play some video games as i was cooking our dinner.. then i came to this realization again, i was exactly that eager when i was so young, i always wished i have the sexy body and the curves of a woman, as i stare at my flat chest and my undeveloped curves back then, when i reached adolescence i was so annoyed wiht guys who came running to court me and have it their way.. reaching adulthood is the crucial and difficult part.. with all the things and responsibilities.. im honestly confessing that i wish i was young and never grown in time..or as of now, the time would stop my ageing...as i stay this look forever.^_^ but its just a wish^_^ anyways, thanks for reading this..have a great day everyone..

Yeah, I have the same feelings too. When I was young, I wished that I will become an adult who shaves his beard everyday :) I was really very jealous when my elder brother shaved for the first time. Now I only shave once in a week. Shaving is boring as hell to me :) But it's not only about shaving; I miss the days when all I cared about was what to play. No lots of thinking about my future or my life. I miss the innocence and peace of childhood. On the other hand, I have no problem with ageing. Since I can't go back to my childhood, it doesn't matter that much to get older. Or at least that's what I think right now.

Yeap yeap..I hear ya there. When I was younger, I wanted to grow up. I looked forward to being 17 so that I could get my driving liscence and drive. I looked forward to being 18 so that I could be allowed in bars and buy booze for myself. I looked forward to being 21, to my 21st birthday...to being an adult officially. It stopped right there. I have been celebrating the anniversary of my 21st birthday for the past 6 years. hahahaha *sings the toys r us song* "i don't wanna grow up, I'm a toys 'r us kid..lalala"
