I'm not embarrassed by my hobbies. I am who I am, and if someone doesn't like it, they can go away. I love trading card games! I WATCH Yu-Gi-Oh!, and I'm nearly 30. I cosplay (dress up in character), and even act like the character at conventions.
I love Pokemon, Naruto, and Harry Potter. I watch the new My Little Ponies religiously. I get a kick out of iCarly. I still read the funnies! I like to sit in the grass, and watch nature. Give me a good book, and I'm set, even if it's a kid's book. Heck, I love being an entomology student because I get to run around catching bugs! What little kid wouldn't love to do THAT for a career? I always joke that I'm either jelly fishing (Sponge Bob reference), or I say, "Entomology! Gotta catch 'em all!"
It's FUN, and who cares if it's "childish"? Everyone is in such a hurry to forget what being a kid is all about. I play video games. I watch cartoons and Nick. I work by behind off teaching, going to school, and doing my research for my grad program. I spend 8 am to 5 pm (or even much later many days) being a serious adult. Why can't I enjoy being child like afterward? :)
All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.
