    Default Being a child. Done that. Been there. What to think of it?

    I've had a problematic idea of childhood. In a few lines,

    -So I wore diapers back then? Shut up already. This is now, not back then.
    -Someone held me on her lap when I was a child? Don't remember the past, this is now.
    -I emptied the whole contents of the fridge on the floor? Well, that was that animal, 3 years old. I relate to that person as much as I could relate to unicellular organisms that we're supposed to be developed from.
    -Pic of me at young age? I had unattractive naivety and a wrong haircut. I understand it's a mandatory shame for everyone. I envy those who got through it with less shame.
    -You're telling me you took care of me, and I had diarrhea one day? I'm thinking, it's a pity that young persons must be taken care of at young age, we should be born self-sufficient without the need of a caretaker.
    -I was like XYZ back then? That's a disgrace. Now my values are individuality, honor, capability, independence - none of which I could do back then. None of them were available to me. I was a damned disgrace of a person. I didn't provide my own money. I didn't make my own food. I behaved like a kid, it was a disgrace.
    -I wasn't knowledgeable enough to make good decisions on my own life. That's completely .. uhh.. now.. this is no joke, if I would cry, I would cry at this point. This is fucking insane. No-one should live like this. It was terrible. Oh my god. I am not joking with you. This point ... this last point.. this is terrible. I was a damned bag of amoeba back then. Oh my god.

    I could go on and on but you get the point.

    So, what do you think of your childhood, as thinking from the viewpoint of someone who's not a child?

    I wish that childhood would just never end.

    I mean honestly, who wants real world problems which you have to find real world solutions to? Everything was simpler as a kid! My biggest worry was whether or not I was going to be getting an N64 for christmas or not...

    Being helpless is a disgrace?

    Come on. We evoluted like that. You could be ashamed too of having to grow in a womb - the ultimate helplessness.

    I can understand feeling awkward when people are gushing about you-as-baby. It IS embarrassing - especially if you don't remember as much. They are talking about something and you can't relate - and that something is you...

    However, I don't mind as much. Right now I'm trying to remember instances where people were talking about me as a child - and I only remember complimentory/funny ones. Not diaper ones - I think nobody in my vicinity finds it interesting, as everyone wears diapers as a baby. On the other hand, there was only one child in the neighbourhood afraid of the number zero.

    But you get more priveleges as an adult, although I do agree the added responsibility sucks.

    It all seems pretty vague to me but pretty good in general.

    I had an awesome childhood.

    There's not a single part of it I would change if given the opportunity.

    The triumphs and tragedies alike made me who I am today, and I'm at peace with myself and the world around me.

    Maybe a bit unorthodox and I saw some things I probably shouldn't have. All and all I had a great childhood.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
