    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.

    I infer most of you weren't orphans.

    I don't miss being a kid.I see the world for what it truly is.It has lost it's enchantment for me I'm afraid.Well, until I learn how to use alchemy that is.:evil::evil::evil:

    But then that begs the question!? Why is the #1 rule of magic, not to create money!? Paper money has the same dimensions of talismans.You use talismans to bind spells to objects, living or dead...hmmm.

    I got my first decent enough full-time job 4 months after graduating Uni last June at age 22.

    Now I really wish I could go back to when I was job hunting! >.<

    The only plus side was that I could finally upgrade my potato GPU and CPU! :nerd:

    I miss childhood to a certain point. I think it's natural.

    I miss not having a mortgage. I miss super nintendo. I miss cell phones not running everyone's lives. I miss Wrestlefest at the arcade, I miss wrestling from the early 90's.

    Everyone cherishes that. Like...I see a revisionist history. Example; people younger than me think n64 was the greatest system ever. It was a flop. It was the system that forced devs to jump to Sony PsOne. Square took FF7 to PsOne etc. It was the start of Nintendo's 3rd party drought that continues today. But to people that are about 5-8 years younger than me? That system is magic. For me? That's snes. And for people older than me, it's nes, or coleco vision, etc. It's perspective and a certain age.

    Now on the flip side, we also romanticize our past. As easily as I can think of those fond memories, I can also remember my mom being beaten by her alcoholic boyfriend and me at 6 staying up until 2 or 3 am worried for her (I'd run out there and beg him to leave her alone when he started and he would). I was bullied horribly in high school, I went to a high school that was 85% african american and they made sure to give my white ass a hard time. A very, very hard time. My mom died of an extremely rare cancer at 41. I was 19.

    So with the good there is bad. If I just want to focus on video games and simpler times, I miss it. Overall? Nope. I don't want to relive half the crap I've seen, unfortunately.

    the end began when you wrote this post; grow up and act how you want to act, child or otherwise.

    few things i miss like not paying taxes and being able to play football until 10 at night.

    But things are so much better being an adult ;)
