Anyone else here peak at like nine?
I feel like the second I hit puberty, I turned into a lousy sack of shit, and I've only gotten worse as time goes on.
I know adulthood isn't meant to be fun, and for most people it isn't, but somehow that doesn't help me stop hating it.
When I was a kid, I did not give one fuck what anyone thought of me, it didn't even occur to me to.
I used to wear a pink party city wig to school sometimes.
I wore a pair of metallic silver high heel sneakers every single day one year.
I can remember one time a little boy came up to me and tried to make fun of me, and I straight up told him, "You only act mean to other people because your mom doesn't love you."
What the fuck happened to that savage little bitch, you know?
Why do I have to care about social norms and guys and taxes and shit?
Anyone else wish they could not go back in time, but just be as fearless and weird as they were like right before they hit puberty?
Gather round kids, tell your favorite childhood stories, please.

I wish I could say I was like that, but even around age 6, I remember worrying about being too fat, too ugly, or too tall and dealing with a lot of lowkey emotional abuse at home. I was always so self-conscious and couldn't fully enjoy anything I did because I was constantly analyzing and criticizing myself.
What I do wish though was that I could go back to my teen years. I was pretty depressed and suicidal back then, but at least I didn't have any other responsibilities besides school. After school, I could just seal myself up in my bedroom, play WoW for awhile, and fall asleep watching all the good shows on Adult Swim like Metalocalypse and ATHF.
Pic related is probably one of the only things I truly miss from my childhood
Me too, anon. I was molested at 5 and my mom became hyper-protective after that. She also used to fat-shame me (as in, call 11 year old me fat even though I was just a little chubby. Now she complains about my bony wrists. Wtf do you want woman???). Despite that, I WAS pretty carefree until about the age of 12 – I went from super outgoing and slightly obnoxious to really really shy. I was socially anxious up until about last year when I started uni.
I do miss high school even though I was a fucking boring shut-in because I did well in school without having to try much and I had a small group of friends that were for the most part pretty chill/funny and some of who I still talk to today (though one of them was toxic and probably the main source of a lot of my shyness/anxieties). I was constantly sealed in my room watching Youtube videos and TV shows. It was nice not having all these responsibilities that I honestly feel too emotionally repressed to deal with properly.
My childhood was pretty shitty so in the end I'm glad my adulthood is way better in comparison.
The only regret I have is this weebish sense of amazement I had in middleschool and even highschool when my friends and I started discovering anime and mangas and giving each other weebish names (I was Ichigo-chan bc obviously Ichigo from TMM was my fav). Getting my first neko-ears or going to my first con lel (it was shitty)
Aside from that I was an ugly kid and never was popular until I hit my early twenties. Cute kids get a pass for being weebish or quirky but I was fat and ugly so I was the school weirdo, though that did help me build a strong character. I don't even feel like I've peaked yet so that makes me feel better about growing up, unlike my girl friends who freaks out about getting older and try to convince people they still get mistaken for highschool students lmao.

We have a vent thread
We have a 'lost childhood' thread
We have an advice thread
We have a sexual abuse thread
We have a mental health thread
we have several ddlg flavoured threads
Why, oh why OP? Fucking why?
This is not how I expected this thread to go
Like I got sexually abused too, didn't everyone? We're all girls here.
You just look past that to the good memories, and don't let abuse manifest as a weird fetish thing later
Too late now I guess

I would love to open an arcade / bowling alley / skating rink / place like this. Bright colors, glow lights, black walls with the galaxy painted on it with a creepy ass moon face. You would get cheap cute prizes from playing the games - stickers and those pom pom ball animals. Lots of candy like what is in OP's pic.
Omg same, I have fantasies about it all the time. I love dimly lit arcades and laser tag rooms. There are no arcades in my country anymore, just shitty casinos. Even places designed for kids like bowling alleys and laser tag are full of slot machines which I think is really age inappropriate and sad. All the coin pushers are full of toys which I imagine cost 1c and aren't even worth trying for. The only DDR machine in the city is at the very back of a casino in what's essentially a storage room, me and my friends visit it regularly.
I'd love to open an arcade and start small with all the machines we're used to seeing and as I gain a profit, try to collect vintage games, lots of different DDR machines, weird "4D" simulations and import loads of machines from Asia. It'd just be a joy to take trips over there to research new machines and I'd make sure to buy lots of cute toys that can't be bought here. We've never had skating rinks here either and I think they'd really catch on considering ice rinks do so well every winter.
Maybe if I win the lottery one day haha.
