I'm experiencing a bit of a depression, because of the fact that I'm getting older. I'm having a tough time leaving behind my childhood (which was the greatest time of my life), but now I am slowly being forced to trade the life I once knew for adulthood. I've been very Preoccupied with my past lately, and i just can't seem to let it go. I miss being in third grade the most, it reminds me of a simpler time, when life was so simple and so easy. I miss waiting for the next installment of my favorite video game franchise (which was, and still is "Tony Hawk's"). I still remember when "Tony Hawk's Underground" came out, it was 2004, and I was very excited to have bought the game (a game which I still play to this day). I also miss waiting for and watching the very much anticipated "Harry Potter" movies, which I would watch as they came out. But slowly, as the years went by, to my horror, things began to change. The "Tony Hawk's" game franchise eventually ended in 2007, all of the "Harry Potter" movies finally came out, and the people that I've know have changed, moved away, or have become very successful and have me behind.
I remember being ten years old, and watching "Dragon Ball" and "Dragon Ball Z" on "Toonami" every afternoon after coming home from school. Everything has changed since I turned eighteen, and now the thing I fear most is getting older. Unfortunately for me, my 19th birthday is next month on the 30th, and I am dreading it! What Can I do? How can I slow things down? Why does everything have to happen so quickly?
