Worst Thing

The worst thing about growing up was not being able to have the things you want and do the things you want to do. And these are some of the things that I was told. I might get hurt. It’s too expensive. Etc. There were always some kind of reason for it.

But there were always hope. The hope of growing older existed. Once I’m old enough I will be able to do the things that I want to do, and have the things that I want. I guess that’s what kept me going. And I guess that’s why I love buying video games and legos, and taking random road trips, even though I’m nearing 28 in Korean age. (Thanks Rachel for reminding me.)


The worst thing about being an adult is that you cannot hope any more. If something is not obtainable, the reasons for those things are not coming from my parents, but coming from my own conviction. That conviction is what makes me miserable. The fact that I know for sure, or at least I have convinced myself, that I cannot win my own desire kills me.

I wanna be a kid again.
