Im 27 years old. I was just listening to the final fantasy 9 soundtrack on youtube and tears came into my eyes from nostalgia. Everything was so beautiful back then, heroes frozen in time, years standing still. I would go to school, then play ps2 and play ball on the street. I didnt have a care in the world. Everthing so perfect! I miss being a kid. When did the end begin?

You don't realise how good you have it until you have to become a grown up. Hell, even school holidays, now I'm in my 30's it's almost like kids are never there they get so much time off. It felt the opposite when I had to go, lol.

You're not alone dude, we all miss that inocent period in our lives. That's why I made myself three kids (2b & 1g) and whenever I can I drop myself to their level, doesn't matter if we're alone or their friends are with them, I don't mind at all and they love it. But when situation needs it I can be more serious than any military commander, kids know that with me it's either white or black, none in the middle. It's the same with other kids in my family and our friends kids, guess they like me because I'm the one of the crazyest dudes in our family lol. My long time gone uncle Ivan was the same, most possitive dude in my life, I'm just continuing it's legacy. 42 here, almost 43, can't wait for grandchildren to come, it's gonna be my third youth

not so much, however I kinda wonder what people are doing if they simply endure their adolesence and need to constantly dream about their childhood.

@StewieTech, you got me worried, so to speak.
threads about death, sudden burst of affection, now this.
Something is missing here.There must be something to fill those gaps in your mind.Ask yourself WHAT is missing, what can fill your void, what you really want/need.
Here is a saying:
If you want something you didn't had, DO something you didn't do.

Maybe its because I am just older or its the internets fault and improved technology.

But TV shows for kids are horrendous nowadays. Here in the UK if you were a kid in the late 80's and 90's you had the golden years, as I like to call it.

Kids TV was insanely good. We had a show called Fun House, SMTV Live, Live and Kicking, not to mention all the amazing Marvel and DC cartoon series of this era too. Not to mention some of the best TV shows in general.

I miss the old days when the whole family would gather around the TV for Saturday night TV. To watch things like Dont Try This At Home, Blind Date, Strike It Lucky/Rich, Who wants to be a millionaire, Londons Burning, Taggart.

We also had the glory years of adult TV where TV shows like Cops, Jerry Springer, Beavis and Butthead, South Park, WWF/WCW Wrestling, were all pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable on TV and the ratings of these shows were through the roof. Nothing on TV today even comes close to those kind of ratings figures.

I don't miss being a kid, but what I could miss from time to time is the constant work/responsibilities as an adult.

Even if I could take a break from it for only a month, yeah that would be great.

On the flip side, as an adult I can afford toys I could only dream of as a kid. Dreams become reality. Either way, I know where you're coming from and agree to an extent.
