    I'm definitly not old, but I guess people are starting to consider me as an adult.. young adult. I still act like a six year old sometimes. I'd rather blow bubbles and run around outside barefoot in a sundress. Hitting eighteen felt like I couldnt act like a kid anymore...

    18 Going On 7!!!

    Well, I'm just nearing 19 now, and I still act like a kid, not that I mind. I just find it easier to be who I am and what's wrong with being foolish?? It lightens up the day tremendously!! I always get the comments that I stopped getting older when I was 7!! But I was a very...

    I'm Childish

    I act much younger than I am. I'm 18 now and I act like I'm 14 of 15. I can be serious an mature sometimes but I make childish jokes. Since I study I can me completely be myself, I never could be myself before because people didn't accept me who I am. So i was always silent and...

    I still care a lot about people

    and future generations. Most people my age and older only care about getting theirs.

    I've been told that I need to grow up.

    Well, I don't want to! Why should I? I'm going to remain a kid forever. Just call me Peter Pan!

    OK...I'm 44 years old.

    I feel about 25 mentally.LOL I don't act my age at all. I have been told that numerous times. I get along with people both older and younger than me, but seem to get along better with the younger ones. I guess I feel like I'm getting old & I can't deal with that at the...

    It's not acting, it's a reality.

    I've refused to give in to the stereo type, of becoming so rapped up, in the way you should suppose to be ,when you mature in age. Through everything, I've been through, people even doctors have told me, I look and act many years younger than I look or act. Any where from 5 to...

    I Am Who I Am and Will Always Be

    I sometimes forget about all the abuse that I have done to my body and start doing things as a special lady once mentioned is not "age appropriate" for me.  I enjoy life too much not to try and go for the gusto.  I learned a long time ago that life is too...

    Just The Same Person In An Older Body

    I remember reading someone saying that they didn't expect that growing old would work the way it works. They likened it to just being the same kid in just an older body. Each year that passes, you're kind of the same person, but you look in the mirror and you look older. That...

    I am 16 years old already.

    I am a childish or a childlike, whatever! But I always act like I'm still their baby and their one and only princess. They said, I'm too old for acting that way but that's the way I like it.
