Je ne veux pas les enfants, part I, and a Tangent

When people say, "I'm having a baby!!" they aren't really telling the whole truth. Yes, they are literally birthing a baby, but they are having a person who will only be a baby for a couple of years. I feel like some people forget this fact when they get preggers.

That's just one of the many reasons I don't want to have children.

I like kids as much as the next guy, I guess. I was a camp counselor for five years and loved it, but that's about all I can take for the rest of my life. I don't want kids. I don't want to be a mother. I literally just shuddered at the thought.

"But Karin! You're only 21 years old! You will change your mind soon enough."

"But Karin! You don't have to turn out like other mothers that you don't like!"

"But Karin! But Karin! But Karin!!!!!"

Blah blah blah, I don't give a crap!

I have many reasons for not wanting to birth an heir. I will share one with you now and continue at a later date.

(NOTE: These are in no particular order!)

1. Lack of Male.

Word on the street is that it takes a male and a female to make a child. I'm only one half of that. YES I KNOW I'M ONLY 21!! That's not the point. Here is the tangent. I probably won't get married. Literally just shuddered again. I just can't see it happening. I can't see myself actually wanting to spend my entire life with someone. Sounds horrific to be honest, no offense to people who are married or plan to get married. UGH! Men! Not worth the trouble.

Which is why...instead of a wedding, I'm throwing myself a very extravagant 35th Birthday Party!!! To which you're all invited, of course. It's going to be AWESOME!!!!!

I told you I would go off on a tangent. I'll post more about les enfants soon!
