    I Don't Act My Age

    I'm in my early 30's and I don't act my age. When I'm in a good mood I'm goofy and joke around. I play video games and I have my own nintendo DS.(I love to play cooking mama) I watch cartoons without my son sometimes lol. The simplest things make me happy. I even say hello to the...

    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!

    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 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.

    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'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...

    I Am Who I Am and Will Always Be
