I recently authored a thread titled...

What Do You Miss the Most About Childhood? Stars for Answers

Received a lot of great answers and insightful posts...
(Its not too late to join in and give your answer there as well)

But upon seeing so many things that I miss and everyone else misses about being a kid...

It kinda got depressing to be an Adult

So let's keep it clean and within ToC guidelines...

But what say you?

I love responsibility...
I love having people looking at me for guidance...
I love smoking cigarettes...
I Love Drinking Coffee...
I Love being Married

I Love playing guitar and making music.
I Love driving.

I love having thoughts that are "Free Thinking"

But possibly most of all...
I LOVE having no one telling me what time to go to bed...
Cos quite frankly... "I DON'T WANNA GO TO BED YET!" haha

I can act as childlishly as I wish.

And no one can say anything about it.

I would say all the above but one.
My wife constantly tells me to go to bed!!!!

Hope you are weathering the storm,that is,if it's heading your way.

You pretty much nailed it on the head, except I'm single. Also, if I tried playing any instrument I'd have every dog in the neighborhood howling for hours.

The only thing I'd add to the list would be to cruise ATS at 10:59PM CST and throw back some tasty Single Malt Scotches. (You did leave out some tasty drink.)

I just had to reply because the end of your post literally made me laugh out loud!

(Told you!)

I love the wisdom that comes with age
I love the lessons I have learned as an adult and how they continuously change the way I perceive the world.
I love having a family that I created
I love having adult discussions that can lead to enlightenment
I love the appreciation for simple things that only comes with age

just a few of the things that make being an adult worth it.

I love having the experience and wisdom to guide those
younger than me,especially my children.

Teaching is the most satisfying,seeing that light bulb go on in their eyes.

I like having had so many different experiences that I might as well think of them as entirely separate lives.

But I'd give a lot to be 18 again and retain what I know now.

Seinfeld did a stand up joke that always stuck with me. Something like: When you're a kid, you gotta ask to have a cookie. Being an adult is way better, ill eat 10 cookies if I feel like it.

Another poster gave the simplified, and what will now be my new version of this: having the right to finally be a child.

I love being able to drink beer

Other than that,I enjoy the few freedoms I have left.

Mine may be a bit of a paradox lol. I love being an adult because i am a father to a four year old which allows me to feel like and play like a kid again when i am around her.

I love being able to pass on lessons learned , so that those who follow after don't make the same mistakes.

And I've learned to be blase when those choose not to listen. Everyone must make a choice.

i love being a father the best about being an adult

Interesting question. A few things come to mind....

I love having a good job with decent people. I love being a wife and a mother. I love having a car and being able to go where ever my heart desires. I love making and spending money, as silly as that sounds. I love having a few drinks every now and then, with black n' milds. I love being able to go into bars to see bands play. I love being able stay up as late as I want without having my mom chew me out. (she was bad for that.

Ok, kind of a lame list but I'm super tired. I'm enjoying the other answers so far. Good topic.

being able to go where I want and when I want.. if I want to go to the beach, or see a movie.. or to a friends. as a child, my mom would not let me play outside, was stuck indoors nearly all the time.. so the freedom feels great.

Unprotected sex with my wife. Yeah, that's what I enjoy most about being an adult.

posted on May, 25 2011 @ 11:44 PM
I can live as a child within, and look like an adult on the outside. They say you lose your innocence when you grow up. Hmm... I say you can keep that with you your entire life if you want to.

Nothing. It sucks being an Adult. Being a child is far more fun.


if I must answer I am quite tickled that my wife is pregnant with out first child. I think I will enjoy being a father.

Other than that, having to act a certain way and not get to see the world with such wonder and excitement bores me.

im still a child im 26 years old and just got past when some one bigger then me can tell me what to do wether im right or wrong or he can just beat me into listening i cant wait till some one tells me what to do or how to live ill show em the American way with my foot or fists i can now buy alchahol i even know how to make it now i can build a plane then fly it if i have the cash for parts i love ageing from here out its all about how i can live to my pleasures and make it so no other child had the life i lived as a kid im racking my brain night and day so being a child isnt a burden on the parents or a trial for the human who has just got here and knows nothing of this world im gonna have fun till my body cant take it and ill pick up my kids till they cant be picked up and so on

and to bring a life into this world is such happyness and worry you sudenly under stand some things and it changes you
