Holding On To My Childhood

Is it totally sad that my favorite movie is a Disney animated movie? I really hope not because my favorite movie is Tangled. Do you also find it strange that I watch cartoons, not because they just happen to be on, but because I like them and I really want to?

How could  anyone not love this ♥

People look at me weird when I tell them I like cartoons and animated movies. They look at me like 'Grow up!'. Well, you know what? I really don't want to. What could possibly be so wrong with me liking them?

I don't remember a time when I didn't like cartoons...especially the fairy tales. I'm sure everyone did when they were small. Difference with me is that I never gave it up. Because I never lost interest. They are funny and happy and there's nothing I don't love about them. I watch everything, from SpongeBob Squarepants to The Little Mermaid - the list goes on and I love them all. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. Not one bit.

I'm not a complete baby, I do love other movies - the more age appropriate ones, I guess. For instance, I think The Shawshank Redemption and Fight Club are the best. I also love A Walk to Remember, the Notebook and the Avengers.

The thing is, I don't watch a good movie just once. I watch them over and over again. But imagine watching Fight Club over and over again. You'd probably end up all depressed and messed up in the head. But if it is a happy Disney movie like Ice Age or Finding Nemo, it's just pure entertainment. 

Maybe something really is wrong with me, but I don't care. I should be allowed to like anything I want. I don't think just because I'm an adult, my likes should be frowned upon. If you don't like it, don't watch it. I do, so let me. 

I am a grown up. I am married. I am responsible. I choose to be all these and still hold on to this little piece of my childhood :)
